In our very first publication of the TREND Letter in 2002, we warned that the US was going to enter the "great race to the bottom currency game", & start to devalue the $US. As we can see, that is exactly what happened from 2002 to 2008 (shaded area), where $US declined over 40% in value over that stretch.

Last week, we saw the Chinese government make yet another move to boost its economy & stock market. The Chinese government cut the pegged value of the Yuan three times last week. By the end of the week, the Yuan fell by 4.5% against the US dollar.
Being pegged to the US Dollar meant that as the dollar strengthened over the last couple of years, so too did the Yuan. This hurt Chinese exporters, so now the Chinese government has joined in on what we call the "great race to the bottom currency game."

Everyone has heard of the Great Depression, but few are aware that after the stock market crash in 1929, global capital poured out of Europe, & into the US stock markets. Why?...because in Europe, every major country defaulted on their debt.

We received the following question from a Musings reader. Since we have received different forms of the same question for the past 4 years, we thought it would make sense to share our answer with everyone.
Q. I read a number of newsletters, & yours is the only one that seems to be anti-gold. Why do you not recommend gold at these incredibly low prices? You guys are missing the buying opportunity of a lifetime.

We have a bearish turn in the Weekly Indicator along with a new, much higher, Weekly pivot now at 18140.
Since the start of the year, against popular opinion, we've forecasted lower equities. Friday the DJIA closed at the 2nd-lowest point of the past 6 months. It should continue lower.

While the mainstream media focuses on how US oil producers have significantly decreased their drilling activities for future oil reserves, we see very little discussion on how much more productive these fracking techniques have become, especially in the past 18 months.

We have stated many times that if we were to only trade in one sector, it would be currencies. The currency market, or Forex, trades over $5.5 trillion per day, & is the largest investment market in the world. By comparison, the daily trading volume on the New York Stock Exchange is only about $30 billion. The key to being a successful investor is understanding where the global flow of capital is headed, & one of the best & easiest ways to profit from that flow of capital is by investing in the right currencies.

We received a lot of email yesterday, asking why gold is getting hammered. To answer that question, all we need to do is look at other commodities. They are also getting whacked...have a look:
Gold - down 18% since last July
Silver - down 29.4% in the last year

Gold has entered panic mode
Right on target with our models' forecast, gold closed today below 1100 @ 1096, just above our original target of 1070-1090. Gold is now in panic mode, so we should see some high volatility for the next while.

It may boast the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the glories that were ancient Rome, but the city is now in chronic decline, its business leaders and inhabitants have warned.

The problem with many gold investors is that they fail to acknowledge that gold is a market, just like every other sector. Gold moves on a pendulum, going from bearish -> bullish, & then swings back the other way. This is how ALL markets work. To make money in any market, you want to buy in when everyone else wants out, & you want to sell when everyone else wants to buy.

Greece crisis to escalate soon
The Greece crisis issue has NOT been solved. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) made a stunning statement on Wednesday...it said that before it participates in another bailout, the IMF will require other EU nations to "forgive" significant portions of Greek debt, & "donate" €billions to Greece.

From Wall St Journal...
A first official projection of Greece’s referendum outcome, based on early counting, said that at least 61% of Greeks voted “no” to creditors’ demands on Sunday, an outcome that—if confirmed—would set the country on a collision course with the rest of the eurozone.
The projection, announced by the company Singular Logic, the official partner of Greece’s interior ministry in carrying out the referendum, was announced after some 20% of the vote had been counted.

With his frustration with the EU efforts to thwart any vote on whether or not Greece stays in the Euro, Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, posted the following blog detailing exactly what he says transpired in those recent meetings. If he is telling the truth, we as the public need to understand the arrogance of these bureaucrats and politicians.
