The last few days have triggered a significant upside rally that in some years would actually be considered a great annual return (+13%). Do not get suckered into it unless you are buying stocks you are willing to hold long term. The initial drop of over 25% in just a few weeks time is indicating that another drop up to that amount may occur in the ST future. The market has rallied on the news that the US is willing to run the national credit card to max levels. That isn’t something to rally on. It’s modern monetary theory.
Short term, it may offer some relief. Don’t think for a second that this is the last of the ballout bills. Its just the first big one of several. The party will end next week when the news that COVID and the economy remain on grim a trajectory.
Last fall I wrote that the trajectory of the failure of the US dollar had at least 10 years to unfold. That was based on the math of $1T USD in deficit spending per year for 10 years. $10T total. The US Government now appears (with published FED monitization of debt) to be on track to print $7 trillion out of thin air this year. The clear investment winners will emerge later this summer- Gold, Silver and Bitcoin.

Do NOT judge this book by its cover! I was very surprised and impressed with the content. Well worth the time and money. Many might find it invaluable. This site isn’t linked to Amazon Marketplace. I’m not making a penny on the advice it holds.
Sneak Peak: I’ve bought some silver and gold coins over the years. It seemed prudent. What this author describes when he was faced with hyper inflation was that a 18K gold chain was better. When he needed to buy something, he would sell gold links. Owners of gold coins quickly became targeted as “rich” by the desperate. Besides, gold chain is cheaper than trying to buy a coin. Win- win. I had never heard that before I read this book. Probably I wasn’t paying enough attention.
