“Don’t let the same dog bite you twice” ~ Chuck Berry
By Catherine Austin Fitts
This Thursday we will continue our rollout of the 2016 Annual Wrap Up with my overview of financial markets over the last year combined with the first 2017 Blockbuster Chartology from Rambus. We will discuss what happened in 2016 and what current charts and outstanding technical analysis from Rambus indicate about current markets for the US dollar, the euro, and global fixed income and equity, as well as for precious metals.
You can follow along with the 2016 charts in the “Financial Market Round Up”section linked on the 2016 Annual Wrap Up web presentation and the latest Blockbuster Chartology on its linked web presentation. You can link back to all of the Rambus quarterly reports over the last year.
In all of our Annual Wrap Ups to date, I have told you there is a good chance that the “slow burn “will continue through the next year – but not so for 2017. We are entering the “pressure cooker.” So in combination with financial charts, I am also going to introduce our scenario thinking and four scenarios for 2017 published in the Annual Wrap Up web presentation in “Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready.” I will use these scenarios for business strategy as well as determining investment allocations.
In Money & Markets this week I will answer your questions in Ask Catherine. Make sure you e-mail or post your questions.
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I will comment on the TV series Designated Survivor and what it says about the governance tensions in Washington, DC between the President-elect and differing factions in his intelligence agencies.
Talk to you Thursday!
