Billionaire Investor Paul Tudor Jones Says Stock Market Valuation Is Terrifying And He Is Right

dollarvigilante72 
We live in a unique time. Never before have the markets gone to such extremes in almost every way imaginable.

Not just the markets either. Nearly everything.

US government debt is just getting ridiculous now. There are really no more words to say how out-of-control and unsustainable it is.

It’s almost as though they are attempting to bankrupt the US on purpose… which is one of our main theories.

And, we’ve seen countless big names in the financial world come out warning of an impending collapse in the last year. Bankster kingpin, Jacob Rothschild, even warned we are in “unchartered waters” on August 21st of last year.

The latest to warn is Paul Tudor Jones, the billionaire hedge fund manager who recently came out with a “controversial” bearish statement regarding the future of US markets.

At a closed-door Goldman Sachs conference last week, he said, “That measure – the value of the S&P relative to the size of the economy – should be “terrifying” to a central banker.”

In addition to that measure, here is a look at the Wilshire 5000, a market-capitalization-weighted index of the market value of all stocks actively traded in the US, versus US GDP.

As you can see, the value of stocks in the US is higher now than at any time in history versus GDP. It is far higher than it was in 2008 and even higher than the tech bubble where companies like Pets.com were valued in the hundreds of millions just for having an internet domain name.

And, now with the Dow Jones back near 21,000 and the Nasdaq over 6,000 AND the Federal Reserve still with interest rates at only 1%, it is setup for absolute disaster.

The Dollar Vigilante’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bugos, agrees with Tudor and has also pointed out how the past 16 years of low interest rates have bloated stock valuations to a level not seen since 2000.

As Ed mentioned in our April 13th Issue to subscribers, “The financial markets have become accustomed to low interest rates as has the government when it comes to managing its finances. The boom in profit growth to the extent there is any growth at all in the past few years is also driven by the related expansion in money. So absolutely the whole boom is vulnerable to a recession due to this freeze in credit growth.”

You may have noticed that we haven’t been talking about the upcoming crash for the last few months. That’s because, in December of last year, Ed Bugos told subscribers to abandon all shorts as the market was going higher.

He was right, yet again, on that one. That’s how he made subscribers a 99% gain in 2016!

But, just in the last few days, Bugos has gone bearish again with a far-out-of-the-money put option on the S&P that has very little risk and massive potential reward. It was the same type of option that we issued in the summer of 2015 that gained 4,500% in just three days during the Shemitah crash of 2015.

One of the other extremes currently happening is “confidence” in the stock market. According to Yale University’s Stock Market Confidence Index over 90% of investors believe that the stock market will rise in the next 12 months.

Yes, more than 90% of both institutional and individual investors actually believe the US stock market will go higher in the next year.

That is a stunning, and as Tudor says, frightening number.

Most individual investors went to government indoctrination camps for 12 years, drank fluoridated water and have watched mainstream media Fake News propaganda their whole lives, so these are not the kind of people you want to be running in the same direction with!

And, even worse, most institutional investors, while they went to private schools, they were still taught mostly useless and wrong information and then went for another 4 or 8 years of further indoctrination in colleges where they mostly learned absolutely useless Keynesian economics.

The fact that both are maniacally bullish at this time is probably a good sign that you should turn the other direction!

Follow that old saying your grandma used to tell you, “Don’t do what fluoridated, brainwashed, government educated, communist economics trained statists do.”

Ethereum Bids for Wall Street with ETF Application

The ETF fever might be making a comeback as SEC places itself in the spotlight once again following its decision to review their rejection of the bitcoin ETF. Heat now might be turned up a notch as the new kid in the block, ethereum, is trying its luck too, in a bid for Wall Street.

Joseph Quintilian and Gregory DiPrisco have founded EtherIndex which is to act as a trust for an Ethereum ETF with Coinbase acting as a custodian and price based on GDAX while Kraken is to act as back-up, both regulated exchanges.

Not much is known about the two, but Quintilian appears to be a Wall Street banker or trader, seemingly very well connected and apparently politically involved. He is a board member of Concord 51, a political action committee that targets young professionals, and, according to their LinkedIn, “not just the young Republican establishment, but also the unengaged.”

The two have also founded Axiom Markets, “a proprietary energy trading firm,” according to their website, and, interestingly, they say “Axiom Markets has melded technology and trading together. Our programmers and traders worked as a team during the development and implementation of our in-house proprietary platform.”

That makes it somewhat easy to see how they ended up at eth, but do they have a chance with their ETF? Mr. Eduardo A. Aleman, Assistant Secretary at the SEC, has made a new ruling on the eth ETF this April 21st 2017. It’s slightly confusing.

First of all, Aleman has instituted proceedings “to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved.” He wants written comments from the public (presumably because he can’t do his own research as we saw from his last decision where outdated and factually incorrect information was used) and, he says he hasn’t made a decision, but is “providing notice of the grounds for disapproval under consideration.” These grounds are now a bit familiar:

“The Commission is instituting proceedings to allow for additional analysis of the proposed rule change’s… which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be “designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices” and “to protect investors and the public interest.”

Eth and bitcoin are similar, but also very different. First of all, none of the big Chinese exchanges lists eth for trading. Secondly, the two biggest eth exchanges are Coinbase and Kraken, both regulated.

Ethereum is backed by almost all household brands who have formed an alliance in support of the platform. Microsoft is a big proponent, with eth’s protocol added to the IBM spearheaded Hyperledger.

The currency has a philosophy of “political neutrality.” The state of Arizona has now declared that smart contracts are to be treated no differently than any other contracts. Mr. Aleman should approve.

Mr Aleman, Open the Doors for Business

If he keeps rejecting these ETFs then he will show to a new generation that regulators are standing in the way of innovation in the guise of “protecting the public” or “preventing manipulation.” Why hasn’t the SEC delisted the banks that manipulated the LIBOR rates if they so keen on “preventing manipulation?”

Because that’s probably just filler. The decision, instead, appears political, probably by a democrat who should be fired due to the shambolic way he handled the bitcoin ETF rejection, allowing widespread speculation for weeks even though a decision had seemingly been made and rejecting it at, literally, the last minute.

Get out of the way of this generation’s invention SEC. Open the doors for business or your youth will just go to Britain where they’ll be welcomed with open arms, further precipitating your “third-world airports,” as President Trump called them.

Are You Angry with God?

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why is there so much injustice in the world?

Written by Hope on 28/07/2013
Series: Weekly Devotional
Tags: Anger, Bitter, Emotions, God
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." (Romans 8:28)

Life Is Unfair

Sin in our world makes it difficult to understand the world as God wants it to be. Bad things happen to "good people," and "good people" sometimes let – or even make – bad things happen. "Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard" (Romans 3:23). It is so easy to want to sin. Why is life not easier? You might wonder, Why would God make a world where horrible things can happen? You might even be furious with Him. But injustice exists because of sin; God created people "for [His] glory" (Isaiah 43:10).

God Is Just
The Lord said, "I love justice" (Isaiah 61:8), but He hates sin. We cannot hope to understand Him nor our place in the world if we cannot understand that He is righteous, holy, and loving. Bad things happen; however "God does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent" (2 Peter 3:9). The Creator's "purpose was for the nations to seek after God" (Acts 17:27). After sin entered the world, He revealed part of His plan, teaching us to obey: "[The Law] was given alongside the promise to show people their sins" (Galatians 3:19). People could not be justified by the Law alone, but by faith: the Law "protected us until we could be made right with God through faith" (Galatians 3:24).

Trust in Him, Not the World
God sent us Jesus to restore the balance between justice and love. The unfair death of righteous Jesus Christ paid the penalty for the sins of us unrighteous people. "God will also count us as righteous if we believe in Him, the One Who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead" (Romans 4:24). That is why we trust in the Lord as our Saviour — He paid the price; we accept that gift in faith. The world tells us that we should be angry with a Creator Who allows bad things to happen, but God gave everything (in the death of His Son, Jesus) to show us His love and justice.

Prayer, Care and Share Jesus
Scripture: Romans 8:28

The Bible tells us that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). But in reality, we see that even people we call “good people”, based on our human standards, can have bad things happen to them:

A tragic accident.
The sudden loss of a great job.
Theft
Unexpected/unfair death.
Betrayal in a relationship.
The list could go on!

These are tough situations for anyone to go through. Some of us become angry with God for allowing bad things to happen. We feel let down by God. This feeling is real, and even fully committed followers of Jesus carry these burdens.

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, understands. Before He was falsely accused, condemned, tortured and died on the cross to pay for our sin, He prayed three times that this cup would be taken from Him. (Matthew 26:36-44). Even on the cross, Jesus felt the Father had forsaken Him. My Friend, something like this may have happened in your life. You may angry with God or blame Him for what happened. NOW is the time to turn to God and know that He has not forsaken you. I encourage you to stand by faith on God's promise of causing all these things to work for your good (Romans 8:28).

Your feelings against God bring separation from Him. They hinder you from following God’s path for your life, and living more lid Jesus did. Repent, dear One, and ask forgiveness. And pray that everyone who hears this message ask God to turn their hearts to Him.

Pray this week:

God will identify any events in your life for which you are angry with or blame God.

Acknowledge That You’re Special

There’re people who like to tell us that we’re
not very special. Even sometimes in the
church, there’re those who, when they’re called to
give a testimony, would say, “God did such-and-such
for me, not because I’m special.” But you’re special.
People make such statements out of ignorance, and
a seeming show of humility. You’re peculiar. You’re
special to God. You’re His pearl of inestimable value.
It’s not pride to acknowledge and affirm that you’re
special.
Remember, God gave birth to you. James 1:18
says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of
truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his
creatures.” It’s absolutely impossible for God to give
birth to “nonentities” or “unworthy servants” that some
Christians unwittingly arrogate to themselves, because
He reproduces after His own kind. You’re the crown
of God’s creation, the best of all that He made.
Our opening Scripture says the kingdom of heaven
is like a merchant seeking goodly pearls, who, when
he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold
all that he had, and bought the pearl. You’re that pearl
Acknowledge
That You’re Special
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a
merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he
had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all
that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13:45-46).
