The Chinese Have Put Out Billboard Ads Announcing the Renminbi as the New World Currency

Podcast 034: Here’s exactly how you can profit from China’s short-term unwinding

by Simon Black
Sovereign Man

When I arrived to Bangkok the other day, coming down the motorway from the airport I saw a huge billboard—and it floored me.

The billboard was from the Bank of China. It said: “RMB: New Choice; The World Currency”

Given that the Bank of China is more than 70% owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, I find this very significant.

It means that China is literally advertising its currency overseas, and it’s making sure that everyone landing at one of the world’s busiest airports sees it. They know that the future belongs to them and they’re flaunting it.

Warren: Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch Received $6 Trillion Backdoor Bailout from Fed

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

Yesterday, the Senate Banking Committee held the first of its hearings on widespread demands to reform the Federal Reserve to make it more transparent and accountable.

Senator Elizabeth Warren put her finger on the pulse of the growing public outrage over how the Federal Reserve conducts much of its operations in secret and appears to frequently succumb to the desires of Wall Street to the detriment of the public interest. Warren addressed the secret loans that the Fed made to Wall Street during the financial crisis as follows:

“During the financial crisis, Congress bailed out the big banks with hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money; and that’s a lot of money. But the biggest money for the biggest banks was never voted on by Congress. Instead, between 2007 and 2009, the Fed provided over $13 trillion in emergency lending to just a handful of large financial institutions. That’s nearly 20 times the amount authorized in the TARP bailout.

US v Europe Divergence

by Martin Armstrong
Armstrong Economics

A lot of questions have come in regarding this subject. Keep in mind that we have two aspects converging (1) Cycle of War targeting 2017, and (2) the Sovereign Debt Crisis. The first has also the Civil Unrest v International Conflict. This divergence need not simply be just international war, although Obama seems so brain-dead that he allows himself to destroy every possible diplomatic effort since Nixon in 4.3 years. Refusing to see the Prime Minister in the White House before he addresses Congress is just unbelievable. He is clearly trying to influence the Israeli elections.

In Russia, this idiot and his manipulators probably were too busy to take and political science courses on history. Politics 101 warns that a politician will turn against an external adversary to save himself.

Reserve Bank Reveals Probe Into Dollar Spike Ahead of Rate Announcement

by Sally Rose, Jonathan Shapiro and Gareth Hutchens
The Sydney Morning Herald

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission is investigating suspicious trading in foreign exchange markets after the Australian dollar spiked sharply in the seconds before the Reserve Bank of Australia announced its surprise decision to hold interest rates in March.

It is the second month in a row that irregular trading has occurred in the moments before the release of the RBA’s monetary policy statement.

The Australian dollar, as valued against the United States dollar, jumped 0.5 per cent exactly 37 seconds before the March interest rate decision was released at 2:30 pm AEDT on Tuesday, sparking speculation of insider trading.

India Surprises with Second Interest Rate Cut

from BBC

The Reserve Bank of India has cut its key interest rate, in a surprise move for the second time this year.

The central bank in Asia’s third-largest economy lowered its policy repo rate by 25 basis points to 7.5% after making a similar cut in mid-January.

The repo rate is the level at which the central bank lends to commercial banks.

Citing a weaker economy, both of the reserve bank’s cuts this year have taken place outside scheduled policy meetings, surprising the market.

The rupee rose as much as 61.88 against the US dollar – its strongest since the beginning of February – after the move.

“There’s Going To Be Chaos” – What Is The Worst-Case Outcome Of Today’s Supreme Court Obamacare Hearing

from Zero Hedge

Today, for the second time since 2012, the fate of Obamacare lies in the hands of the Supreme Court, and like last time, it will likely be all about Justice John Roberts ‘ decision. Later today, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of King v. Burwell, the latest challenge to Obamacare, and one that could potentially leave it gutted from an unexpected direction. As a result, nearly eight million Americans could lose their health insurance depending on how the Supreme Court interprets four words in the “Affordable” Care Act.

But while the law, or rather “tax”, was already found to be constitutional in the Scotus 2012 ruling, the current case centers on whether, as many Republicans argue, one line in the law was intended to restrict subsidies to people who bought insurance through a state exchange or whether, as Democrats contend, that line was a simple oversight in the law’s drafting.

Latest Existing/New Home Sales Show Market Decline Will Accelerate

by David Kranzler
Investment Research Dynamics

Mortgage purchase applications have declined in 7 out of the first nine weeks of 2015. Based on seasonality, they should be increasing every week…Just so you don’t think my view on the housing market is a lone voice out there:

The complacency in evidence today is not dissimilar to that seen during the sub-prime era, when both Mr. Bernanke and Ms. Yellen admitted they did not see the problems coming. The real estate market is now accustomed to an ever increasing level of happy drugs. Now that the Fed has clearly come to the end of providing additional support, withdrawal is going to be quite painful (LINK)

Poland Seeks to Halt Deflation with Rate Cut to All-Time Low

by Pawel Florkiewicz and Marcin Goettig
Reuters.com

WARSAW, Mar 4 (Reuters) – Poland cut interest rates deeper than expected on Wednesday, bringing them to a new all-time low to curb deflation and prevent excessive gains of its currency on the eve of a massive monetary stimulus in the euro zone.

The central bank’s Monetary Policy Council (MPC) cut the benchmark rate by 50 basis points to 1.50 percent, while most analysts polled by Reuters had expected a 25 basis point reduction.

The zloty eased by 0.3 percent versus the euro after the decision.

“The motivation behind a deeper than expected cut was probably a desire to stem market expectations for a rate cut cycle,” said Adam Antoniak, senior economist at Bank Pekao. “Governor (Marek) Belka will most likely signal at the post-meeting conference that the potential for more easing has been mostly exhausted.”

Gold Has Worked for Indians, Says Thomas Kaplan

by PTI
India Times, Economic Times

NEW DELHI: Telling Indians not to buy gold is like asking Americans not to consume liquor, billionaire investor Thomas Kaplan has said.

Appreciating Indians’ appetite for gold, Kaplan said the precious metal has historically been a very good way to store wealth for India and pointed out that China is “specifically and overtly” encouraging its people to buy gold.

India is one of the largest consumers of gold in the world and imports as much as 800-1000 tonnes of gold each year.

“I think trying to ban gold or to ban gold imports, you know, would have about as much success as trying to tell Americans not to drink alcohol. And prohibition did not work and eventually someone had to accept the reality,” he told PTI on the sidelines of a CII event when asked whether India’s efforts to curb gold imports would work.
