Smart Money Continues to Sell

We continue to see extreme outflows of funds out of the market to levels not seen since 2008.  I ask the question, how long can the market hold up, with such active distribution of stock?  Going into a traditionally low volume season throughout the summer, the risks will remain elevated.

Citigroup Getting Nervous

Citigroup’s Matt King on the stock markets:
Extreme events are becoming more common, which is an intrinsic feature – not external shock – in a system that is fast approaching its “centrally-planned” tipping point. Citi’s suggestion: position for tipping points, and stay away from the conventional, fake optimistic forecasts that all shall be well as propagated by the financial media

Are Negative Mortgage Rates Coming?

Deutsche Bank’s Dominic Konstam just revealed the brutal reality that Europe is likely to face and is just a premonition of our monetary future in North America.  In his report, he wrote that QE has run its course.  In his Keynesian Lala Land, he suggests European Central Bank should move more strongly toward penalizing savings, rather than just the institutions that “house” those savings – the banks. This would mean allowing significantly negative retail deposit rates or perhaps even wealth taxes. With this stick would also come a carrot – one example being that while deposit rates penalize savings (the whole point), banks might also pay borrowers to buy houses via negative mortgage rates.
What makes Konstam a fool in my mind, is that in all that economic modelling, he is not accounting for the animal spirits of this financial alchemy.  I ask – would negative retail deposit rates and negative mortgage rates simply expose to the common Main Street citizen that the monetary system is broken and lead to a full rejection of our money system?
