Central Banks have FINALLY created inflation.
Starting in late 2016, Central Banks began actively rigging the stock market via a number of games.
1) Slamming the VIX lower to force risk-parity funds to buy stocks.
2) Selling the Japanese Yen and buying $USD to force stocks higher via the Yen carry trade.
3) Outright buying stocks and ETFs directly.
All three of these strategies involve a Central Bank actively printing money and funneling directly into the financial markets.
And THAT is a game-changer.
Up until this point, Central Banks have been rigging the markets indirectly by attempting to corner the bond market via QE and interest rates. In the simplest of terms, these policies forced investors to put capital into stocks and other risk assets in order to seek higher returns.
As such these were indirect market rigs in that they didn’t involve Central Banks actively funneling money STRAIGHT into the financial markets.
Since November 2016, Central Banks have been funneling money straight into the financial markets in an attempt to rig stocks.
Put simply, globally Central Banks have been spending tens and possibly even hundreds of billions of dollars propping up the stock market in the last 11 months.
THAT is a game-changer. And it is going to unleash inflation in the financial system.
The $USD has already caught on to this, having dropped 10%. And the long-term chart is even uglier.
This is THE trend of the next six months. If you’re not taking steps to actively profit from this, it’s time to get a move on.
