It began with the Brexit vote in Britain, and then with Trump’s victory in the United States. These two votes sent shockwaves around the world, as no one in the political elite could have imagined that such results were possible. But they have happened and there are still many shock waves ahead. In the next few years, we are likely to see many more black swan events promoting pro-independence and even outright separatist movements. The curtain recedes further, revealing most of the status quo.
First Britain, then the United States, and now the next big “upheavals” will come from Europe. We have just spent the last four decades living in “age of law“with governments offering to hand out all elections, treating their constituents as heroin addicts, their motto isjust promise them more things and they will be happy.“It didn’t matter which party, they did the same thing. The problem was that they didn’t have the money to pay all that free money, and now it’s the day of the bills.
Those responsible have brought the world’s economies into the ground by initiating monetary policy that involves creating trillions of dollars out of nothing, even to impose negative interest rates on consumers. They have robbed the elderly of any return on their savings and have now threatened pension funds, which have now made huge funding gaps due to low rates.
What we’ve seen over the last year has been quite remarkable, but what will happen will make the last few years look obedient. A number of major political events are coming up in Europe next year. The next big date is December 4, when we have both the Italian referendum on constitutional change and the Austrian presidential election. As EU sentiment rises across Europe, one of these events could be contagious dominoes, with more dominoes falling. sending the whole continent in a state of terminal socio-economic collapse.
The European Union is at high risk of unraveling and the potential financial consequences are enormous. Europeans who have converted euros into US dollars at any euro rally are in a very good position today. Investors need to understand the big picture of what lies ahead in the global economy. Once you get the big picture, come up with strategies on how to profit from it.
Our number one priority is to protect our wealth. Many lost their fortunes in the real estate crash of 2006 and the stock market crash of 2008. We are very concerned that these same people will be hit extremely hard by the impending collapse of the global bond market.
You need to understand that all markets are connected. When investors in Europe saw rising unemployment and escalating violence, they did not want to leave all their money in this economy. They looked around, and although the US economy was not growing fast, it was growing. They also knew that the US dollar was the world’s reserve currency and that US stock markets were the most liquid in the world. So they began to open bank accounts in US dollars and invest in US stock markets. Investors from Russia, China and around the world are doing the same thing, moving their capital from alleged risk zones to embrace the security of the US dollar, North American real estate and stock markets.
So, while we have seen a lot of instability in the last two years, this is nothing compared to what lies ahead. We are already beginning to see the consequences of negative levels. The bonds are now being sold. This happens in government and corporate bonds. This is a major change in the trend that will bring huge losses to many investors.
Things are heating up and you will have to navigate through this fast-approaching, massive change of trend. This will affect everything in your life: your finances, currency, mortgage and your ability to sleep at night. These changes will affect the markets for currency, stocks, precious metals, oil, bonds and real estate. If you understand what’s next and have a specific plan on how to maneuver agilely with your investment as each phase is triggered, that’s fine. But if you don’t have a plan, seek help before the economic tsunami.
This is your money – take control!
