What are Central Bankers so Terrified of?

Phoenix Capital Research's picture

Central Bankers are absolutely terrified.

In the last month, both Fed President Janet Yellen and ECB President Mario Draghi have issued somewhat hawkish statements, only to turn around within 48 hours and walk back their comments.

Again, two of the most powerful Central Bankers in the world couldn’t even last three days being hawks.

First was ECB President Mario Draghi, with claims that the ECB was considering gradually removing its stimulus programs.

European markets dived in response to this.

So Draghi sent his Number 2 guy on a PR campaign to assuage the markets that Draghi's statements were being “misinterpreted.”

Yes… Draghi couldn’t even handle 24 hours of selling.The markets didn't even drop 3% and he hit the "PANIC" button.

Just what does this guy know about the financial system that makes him unable to stomach a single DOWN day?

Then came Janet Yellen, suggesting that the Fed would be engaging in multiple more rate hikes and shrinking its balance sheet this year… only to turn around a few days later and deliver some of the most dovish testimony to Congress in Fed Chair history.

Yellen completely contradicted all of her earlier statements, claiming that the Fed was just about done with its rate hikes AND that it would not use its Balance Sheet reduction to drain liquidity from the system.

She couldn’t stomach even a few days of the market correcting.

Again, what do these these people know about the financial system that they’re this terrified of the markets dropping for just a few days?

Could it be that they know that the market is in fact on VERY thin ice... and that another Crisis, even larger than 2008, is on the horizon?

A Crash is coming...

And smart investors will use it to make literal fortunes.

We offer a FREE investment report outlining when the market will collapse as well as what investments will pay out massive returns to investors when this happens. It's called Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.

Today is the last day this report is available to the general public.

To pick up one of the last remaining copies…

They're afraid of us.

They're afraid of Agorism.

People get extremely mad (violent) when promises are NOT kept.

All paper (and electronic) transactions and currencies are promises.

As long as promises appear to be kept, nobody gets mad.

 What are the banksters afraid of? 50 foot of hemp rope and a lamp post?

  The stall and bartering.

 Wood chippers.

They have backed themselves into a corner inadvertently.

They set out to placate us with bread and circuses.

They created the Me-generation and mindset to divide us and make us spend more.

They split men and women to divide us and make us need to spend more

But we were greedier than they expected. And politicans only have 5 year terms - but make generational promises.

In short, the weight of expectations right across the western world at an individual level is now so high, any correction will be a shock in a way that it would never have been to a 50's generation.

The internet means they cannot fall back on "we did not see this coming".

Everyone can see it coming.

So they know that we know they misguided us wilfully, through the most important financial decisions of our lives - and profited from it so much.

I would be very scared. All it will take for them is one diverted flight and they are in serious trouble.

What would be very good to know is how far away any central banker ever is from an airport with a private jet.

They panic at selling because they realize that, when the time comes for the market to 'correct', it will begin with SELLING. They just never know for sure if THIS is the selling that starts the ball rolling, so they panic at ANY selling.


They know the day is coming. And every time the markets lose a few points, they break out in a flop-sweat, wondering if THIS IS IT...

Do you want us to start the selling?

Of course they panicked.

Remember 'the reset' in the night of July 3 into 4? The miraculous 123,47?

It was a warning; a demonstration of power saying: you better play ball or...

Anyway, they bought the peace.

Sadly, cases of blackmail seldomly end like that.

123,47= timeline

1,2,3,4 and 7 represent the days of July.

,  represents the moment of 'the reset'

1,2,3 were history at that point and 4 the national holiday.

5 and 6 are omitted in the given timeline. These two turned out to become the only 'down days' in the market.

7 was the day everything would be in order again (if..?)

And so it happened.

They're claiming to be tapering and they are doing the opposite covertly

They're killing the dollar. They used to promise rate hikes and then not deliver. Now Yellen promised not to raise rates and the dollar keeps dropping. It's hit its 52 week low during recent trading but hasn't closed at it yet. I'm sure there are a lot of foreign investors looking at the dollar index and thinking about when they're going to dump their dollars. Something like 1/15 of all physical dollars are held in Argentina alone.

Afraid of?

Abject failure, public knowledge of who's responsible, then their heads on pikes.

That people found out that they made all that money in all of the CB's with CGI?

This caused me to panic.
