The Crucible

I’m going to wrap up the day with a series of charts which are the ones I’d present if someone asked me to show them the ETFs which suggest most strongly that asset deflation is on the way (Note: I wound up with 7 charts by the time I got to the letter “I”, and I think that’s enough). I’ll let the charts speak for themselves, and I’ll see you in the morning before the sun’s up.

The criminal executives from some of the bigger failed banks were dragged in front of the Senate today to explain how Nothing Is Their Fault. Some of you might think I am an unfiltered person. I assure you, I am not. I’d say I keep my mouth shut about 95% of the time. I’m definitely going to refrain from describing, in grotesque and lurid detail, precisely what I think should be done with every banker in the United States. Please enjoy the show below. It’s a delight, albeit a farce.
