Stock Market Manipulation 101

Stock Market Manipulation 101 PDF Version
Here are two images which illustrate what I describe as the eternal daily chart pattern that is generated by the ALGOS as they go about their daily practices of creating and maintaining uptrends.

One reason it is hard to get folks to understand that financial markets are perpetually manipulated second by second  is that the lives of Americans are totally manipulated in almost every aspect of their being independently of markets anyway. But really, am I the only guy in the world to notice this? Continue reading

Modern Money Explained

Modern Money Explained PDF Version
Money has always been around. At the time bartering was used, whatever was produced in excess of what the producer used, served as money. It was traded directly for something else another person produced, that was deemed worth a trade.  All kinds of commodities have been used for money.

Six characteristics of money are:

durability, portability, acceptability, scarcity, divisibility and uniformity.

Gold served as money for eons because it posses all of these six characteristics.

Interfere with any of these six attributes and whatever serves as money functions less efficiently as money. Continue reading

Some are Starting to Get It About the Global Crime Syndicate.

I don’t know Jordan Peterson. I am a great admirer of his work.
He has a lot to say and it is generally right on the money.
In this video, he refers to “Global Utopians”.

“Global elitists” have no natural incentive to make a utopia for the good of the people. They have every incentive to capture and control the world’s factors of production. They also have every incentive to guide the thinking of the public.

As horrible as it is, academics must see the the situation as it really is.
The global utopians are not ideologically driven. This is a global crime syndicate and still much more sinister than do a group of liberal elitists pushing a socialist agenda. When and if our academics describe the global elitists as a crime syndicate, we will have made monumental progress. Continue reading

Permanent Depression

Permanent Depression PDF Version
I want to make sure I am on record in forecasting a permanent depression. This is while others are calling for a recession or a simple depression.  Few have not heard the news that we have had two quarters of negative GDP growth. That by most is deemed to be a recession. Government statistics are always as positive as they possibly can be. Surely the real situation is much worse. Now, some are challenging this time -honored definition of what constitutes a recession. Why call it a recession if we don’t have to? Certainly we shouldn’t want Americans to be discouraged. Continue reading

Dynamics Of Censorship

Dynamics Of Censorship PDF Version

It has been 246 years since the American Revolution. For all but the last five or so years, citizens saw and heard all that they were exposed to. Now there is a fear that folks in general might be exposed to wrong ideas and that would be harmful to the country and themselves. The common man now must be protected from being misguided, ostensibly for his own good.  His protectors are deemed to know all that is worthy of his attention and knowledge base.

It must be noted that government is not censoring anyone, at least not the official government. The corporate structure has been around for a long time. Never before has industry been motivated to protect the country’s citizens from receiving wrong information. So what has changed that makes industry motivated to guide the thinking of the population? Continue reading

Short Squeeze Or Dead Cat Bounce

I must be alone in the world in explaining that the financial markets are not just rigged overall but on a second by second basis. Today;s rally is being explained as being a short squeeze or a dead count bounce. It is neither.

This is an organized effort to restart and maintain the bull market. If the ALGOS can make a snake, they have substantial control over the market. So, they do in fact still have plenty of control over the market. ‘ Continue reading

Deflation Come Latelys

I sent my friend Sidewalk Sam in East Texas, an email showing that others are now predicting inflation just as I am. He thought the content was so on target, he suggested my posting the text of that email because it is so on target. So, here it is.

I can’t convince people of how simple this is.  The truth is not used in politics. It isn’t used in the media either.

It is one thing to entertain this intellectually. Acting on the basis that politics is all lies is harder to do. That is the difference between knowing and understanding. and experiencing.

Anything said in the media today reflects the agenda of those who control the media.

First , it is “let’s all fear deflation”. That went on for years. Now,  it is all “we must fear inflation”. That means buy now before the price goes up even more. All of that is agenda driven. None of these people can predict anything. Check their track records.

Their fear of deflation is real. Deflation works against them but helps everyone else.. Their fear of deflation is well founded. So, when a downturn, which is deflationary, is in the offing, they are even more scared of deflation. Therefore the inflation creating becomes elevated.

This has nothing to do with knowledge about economics. It comes down to figuring out what a bunch of liars are going to do next.

Shorting This Market

Just last week, I added some to my blanket positions in Bear ETFs, mainly TZA. I also own TECS, FAZ, SD and  BIS.

None of these are large positions. Altogether I am in negative numbers. I would rather not be, but given my system of trading, that is unavoidable sometimes.

I am not short a single share yet, but I will be. Today’s traders are accustomed to bear markets that snap back like a jack knife. That is not going to happen this time. I am looking at a decline that lasts no less than two years.

So, I am not in a great hurry to load up on shorts. The ALGOs control the direction of the market, but only to the upside. The ideal time to short is when the ALGOs are no longer relevant. When long term holdings start hitting the market, they will be helpless with respect to their trend guiding efforts.

My goal as a trader is to get in and stay in whether long or short for the duration of a move. I would be short up to my neck right now, if the market was not so adeptly rigged up to this point. Further, I don’t know what heroic steps the government will take on behalf of our betters, in terms of a wealth saving programs. I think we can count on some collective efforts to save those who count.

I never use stops.  With the ALGOs in charge, a stop is as much as a guaranteed loss. Without the ALGOs, I don’t need stops anyway.

The ideal short for me is a stock that will eventually fall off the board and land in the corporate grave yard. After a bear market is over, many stocks will be destroyed. My hope is to never have to cover.

So, what I am looking for are stocks that are not going to survive. I don’t have a list yet. I am at best an average stock picker. If anyone has idea with respect to good short sale candidates, I am listening.

My first criteria in this effort is a company’s utility to society. As corny as this may sound, stocks with no utility to society are the ones that end up on the pink sheets sooner or later. Big tech, Big Pharma, Big Insurance and others currently have a negative utility over all. In other words they only take and never give. By give, I don’t mean by means of charity. I mean, those which in one way or another enhance lives over all. The industries, just mentioned have enormous political power.  That power is diminishing rapidly. A better bet is to find the smaller players in these industries and short those.

I don’t have the time to research all of the opportunities. No no one else does either.  That is why I am suggesting collaboration.

None of this is advice. It is just what I am personally doing. If I ever give you advice, don’t take it. I can be right ten times in a row, and then give advice. it almost always backfires.

Curbside Jimmy’s Prophetic Song

This song was never meant to be prophetic. I wrote it in 2009, long before Covid or anything else that is going on in today’s world.  The original version has been on YouTube for years.  When I posted this new version on YouTube, they first cancelled my channel.  It was reinstated, but they stopped showing my videos.

Now that it actually is 2022 and not 2009,  it turns out that it might be prophetic after all. The future will not manifest in the exact way it does in the song. But, our future in the country, for sure will follow a similar pattern.

We have a society of completely homogenized citizens. Government makes all of life’s important decisions for them. They are completely clueless as to how to live in a society where they are not managed by an authority and will be confounded as to how to fend for themselves in the hard times to come.

What will happen? They will offer themselves as devotees to the first new authoritative figure who seeks to guide them. They will end up worse off than before. We very likely will send our sons and daughters off to war.

At any rate , times are getting weird. They are getting weirder with every passing day.

Tomorrow’s Stock Market

In 2005 I began to notice chart patterns which were previously useful were turning into traps, For example, when a head and shoulders top  pattern was  completed, a short squeeze would ensue. Every now and then this is normal.  But on every single trading, it is not.

In spring of 2006, Henry Paulson became the first activist Treasury Secretary in history. From spring of that year on, the market had an invisible floor under it.

The lower volume was, the stronger the market would be. The volume chart began making a perfect parabola pattern with few exceptions. Then there was the emergence of the snake pattern, on minute by minute charts patterns, never seen in history  before. All action occurred in the first and last hours. Could there be a conspiracy, devoted to elevating asset prices? Would it even be possible? Could it be done? The 100 or so richest folks in the world  certainly have enough money and power to do it. Would they? A better question to ask is Why wouldn’t they? But, Woo, James, that is conspiracy theory, therefore it couldn’t be true. Right?

Adam Smith, is well thought of, but his observations are routinely treated as platitudes..Some of us take his wisdom to heart. If Adam Smith is to be believed, it is nearly impossible that stock prices are not thoroughly manipulated. So, who should we trust here?

 

 

Lets look at a chart of the Dow along with the percent of stocks over their 200 day moving averages. Around 26 percent are above their 200 day moving averages. This is the level that would be expected at the bottom of a bear market. Is this the bottom? I am betting that the bottom is about to fall out instead.

This is based on the whole bull market being phony from the beginning. The ingredients necessary to move it higher are missing. There is one caveat… that means nothing….. will be done to try and save it. I made a similar point in the article below. In 1987, the market did suddenly crumble but there was a recovery. If we experience that kind of event this year, it will keep on dropping. Any recovery won’t start for at least two years. Our system is so corrupt, any recovery at all should not be taken for granted.
