Investors, not interested in buying negative-yielding bonds (guaranteed losses if held to maturity) and fearful of speculating in equity markets, have pushed gold prices up over 25 percent this year while pushing gold coin sales for the second quarter up 72 percent year to date. Global master forecaster Gerald Celente tells you why. Learn more at Trendsresearch.com
Gerald Celente takes a deep dive into the news of recent days, especially the self-destructing Donald Trump and ever present war drums pounding in the background of the Presidential Reality Show. He updates listeners on critical economic trends, as well. Despite high expectations that the Bank of Japan would stimulate its nation’s foundering economy by driving interest rates further into …
“The laws are only there for we the little people to obey…” Trends analyst Gerald Celente breaks down the hollow words and promises behind Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of Hillary Clinton, as well as President Barack Obama’s recent speech about the Dallas police shootings and the shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana. Celente then ties the failed leadership of the political elite here and across the globe to the rise of the anti-globalization movements taking hold worldwide and the emerging – and powerful – trend of self-sustainability. And, he offers some deep insights into the surge in global markets this week.
Global forecaster Gerald Celente rips into the decision not to prosecute Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her email scandal, demonstrating once again two scales of justice: One for the elites, one for the rest of us. Elsewhere, Celente analyzes market indicators in the aftermath of Brexit. Global equity markets are in turmoil. However, the business media’s view of market mayhem is a snapshot in time dating to the June 23 “Brexit” when the United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union. Indeed, while Brexit triggered the current turmoil, Celente’s trends-eye view identifies the current market volatility in a Globalnomic® context far bigger than Brexit.
Although stocks bounced back on “Turnaround Tuesday” on the belief that contagion has been contained following the rout that wiped out $3.6 trillion from equity markets following Great Britain’s referendum last Thursday to “Brexit” the European Union… we disagree. It’s bigger than Brexit. Despite many of the world’s largest hedge funds betting billions on a “Remain” victory and British bookies putting the chances of “Leave” at barely 10 percent, in our June 15 Trend Alert, we wrote, “Should the ‘Leave’ vote win, we forecast the US dollar and gold prices will spike while equity markets, particularly those currently under downward pressure, will sink deeply lower.” Since then, gold hit two-year highs, the British pound fell to 31-year lows and currencies around the world hit new lows against the US dollar – or tested old ones – as investors sought safe-haven assets such as the dollar and Japanese yen.
The criticism in the “investor” world has long been that gold yields no interest. However, as interest rates around the world keep trending lower and holding cash yields nothing, in a climate of ongoing market volatility, for many, holding gold is considered the ultimate safe-haven commodity.
The surveillance state reaches new heights. In the aftermath of the massacre in Orlando, Republican senators are seeking to expand the FBI’s surveillance capabilities. Where are the liberals? Screaming about gun control while remaining silent on yet another move to restrict your rights. Gerald Celente breaks it all down in this edition of Trends This Week.
Global forecaster Gerald Celente provides a trend-tracking lesson by separating rhetoric, distortions and propaganda from fact in speeches made in response to the recent massacre in Orlando. His analysis shows how and why this type of violence self-perpetuates. Elsewhere in this program, Celente breaks down what the coming Brexit vote in the UK could – or could not – mean for the global economy. He forecasts continued global economic deterioration and high equity-market volatility
While Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and fellow Fed members bombarded the business media with the refrain that America’s economy was strong, and to expect an interest-rate rise “in the coming months,” this week, global forecaster Gerald Celente reminds his listeners what the facts – what the hard, indisputable data – say about the true state of the economy. So while Yellen states “the economy has registered considerable progress over the past several years toward the Federal Reserve’s goals of maximum employment,” hard data dispute her jobs-progress claim. In fact, since 2009, 95 percent of all income gains have gone to the richest 1 percent while median household income remains below 1999 levels. There is no recovery.
From Burberry to Hugo Boss, from Cartier to Tiffany, foot traffic is down, profits are slumping, stores are closing and markets are shrinking. Across the luxury spectrum, beyond jewelry, watches and valuable gifts that are among the worst performers… even sales of luxury apartments are falling some 20 percent in prime real-estate markets around the world.
At the top of the retail top, gold and diamond jewelry sales, two key trend indicators that signal both a weakening global economy and ensuing economic turmoil, continue to worsen. While the luxury-retail sector blames soft sales primarily on a decline in tourism, unstated in corporate fiscal reports is that the reason tourism is down is a direct consequence of the worsening global recession we forecast as a Top Trend of 2016.
As Memorial Day approaches, global forecaster Gerald Celente reflects on the horrors of war and the cowards who lead us to war with lies and deceptions. In classic Celente fashion, he breaks down President Obama’s recent “sovereignty” speech to show the embedded, instinctive lies and overt hypocrisies that explain away U.S. aggression against “sovereign” nations and are never challenged by the Presstitute media. Elsewhere in the show, Celente invites listeners to join him, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert of RT’s Keiser Report, and other speakers for the Trends Research Institute’s summer retreat, the “Ontrendpreneur.” The retreat is filling up fast and drawing participants from across the globe and from throughout the United States.
