Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Prop 'Til You Drop - Saving The Recovery™

“I feel that the dormant goodwill in people needs to be stirred.  People need to hear that it makes sense to behave decently or to help others, to place common interests above their own, to respect the elementary rules of human coexistence.

Truth and love will overcome lies and hatred.”

Vaclav Havel

"The suspicions that the system is rigged in favor of the largest banks and their elites, so they play by their own set of rules to the disfavor of the taxpayers who funded their bailout, are true.  It really happened.   These suspicions are valid.”

Neil Barofsky, TARP Inspector General

"Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.

The narcissistic orientation is one in which one experiences as real only that which exists within oneself, while the phenomena in the outside world have no reality in themselves, but are experienced only from the viewpoint of their being useful or dangerous to oneself."

Erich Fromm

And it is happening all over again.

Stocks were slumping badly overnight, on the brief realization that the scope of the threat to the global economy by the coronavirus is being widely and deeply mispriced.

But as the day wore on in New York, denial once again held the day.

And the market lifted, almost miraculously and steadily, once again.

Do you seriously doubt that the US stock market is being propped up, and at the urging and direction of the White House?

The equity market is the keystone of Trump's miraculous economic recovery.

Do you think for a moment that he and his minions would hesitate to pressure the Fed, the Banks, the Treasury, and the other members of the Exchange Stabilization Fund to push the SP futures higher at ever turn?

And does anyone think that the consciences of those doing this are bothered at all, considering the economic carnage and collateral damage to innocent people that is likely to follow the collapse of this latest financial asset bubble?

All they care about in the short term is maintaining their deceptions and power, in order to become even more rich than they already are.

Well done.

Have a pleasant evening.
