'Zee Stabilitee & The Wealth Effect' - Name These Two Charts

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: Answers Provided

  • Chart 1 is the real value of the German stock market from 1914 to 1927 (and the lower chart is the nominal price)
  • Chart 2 is the real value of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from 1999 to Present (real = adjusted for the value of Gold)

A century apart and a continent apart. With Bernanke's fingers now glued on CTRL-C, perhaps the reality of these two charts suggests it's really not different this time at all...


Chart 1 - Zee Stabilitee


Chart 2 -The Wealth Effect


Can you identify what is being charted in each of these images?

Doing so may help to lift the veil of Bernanke's (and Draghi's) Grand Plan.


Charts: Bloomberg and Bridgewater (Page 136-146)


Hint: Below is the nominal version of Chart 1:

The Republicans do the Polka dance clockwise to the right,
The Democrats do the Polka dance counter clockwise to the left.
That's the only difference.

Add in CFR control freak nonsense and it means we're all screwed. That's what the charts mean. Look at all the pretty bubbles. I'll get into that CFR bullshit another time.

But let me give you this for now;

That's their job.

Following Bridgewater link shows chart 1 is German stock market real returns, chart 2 must be our market in gold terms...I don't have a Bloomberg machine to determine which market but don't it look ominous...

I've been out back working on my new currency carrier, since 15 wheel barrows welded together is a little "cumbersome".

The 8 HP Briggs and Stratten has been scrapped in favor of the 400CID blown small block to move the paper from the back yard to the front yard.

Pretty soon, chart three will simply be a line overlaid on a grid, reffered to only in angles.

Chart 2 looks like FAZ, TZA, and DRV.

the big difference is that FAZ will go parabolic, while chart 2 is all downhill.

Deutche Mark, and it's freely traded. Greece is toast! So is Spain!

  Italy will barf for concessions like Greece. Greece will be toast in 60 days, and it won't be a big deal. All the small " Club Meds" will follow suit. Portugal, Cypress, ect...

I think that Max Keiser's site is being "disrupted" by JP Morgan if not the government.  One server never stops downloading.  Waiting for.....to respond, etc.  It can actually lock my PC for 30 seconds at a time.  No other site does that.  Come to think of it, that delay might just be the CIA searching my hard drive and emails.   No doubt I am a suspected terrorist.  At least they can't throw me away w/o a hearing since that judge reinstituted habeas corpus while shredding the NDAA.

Frankly I wouldn't be surprised to see Stacy and Max go the way of Jimmy Hoffa.  That would be a real loss for the world.  I hope that they are taking precautions.  Jamie Diamon never accepts Max's invitation to appear on his show.  I love the way Max rips Diamon - no holds barred.  He was excoriating Geithner today:
