As Global Debt reached a new record high of $250 trillion this year, gold and silver came briefly back on the radar for investors.  After five long years, the precious metals finally broke through key technical levels this summer.  However, after the Fed started the Repo Operations in September and the $60 billion a month of “Not-QE” in October, the focus returned once again to the Bloated Stock and Bond markets.

What a drastic change from the Fed’s policy last year when it was reducing the size of its balance sheet until the stock market crashed in December 2018.  Since then, the huge stock market reversal and all the additional gains have been Fed liquidity induced.  Sven Heinrich continues to write and talk about this on his website, the Northmantrader.com.  Here is a recent chart from his article, System Failure:

At the bottom left hand of the chart corresponds to the bottom of the stock market in January 2019 when Fed Chairman Powell caved in by ending the reduction of the Fed’s balance sheet.  Since then, there have been three rate cuts, Repo Magic and $60 billion a month of U.S. Treasury purchases because there aren’t enough suckers to absorb all the new U.S. Govt issued debt.

The U.S. economy isn’t even in a recession, and the Fed is acting as if it was 2008-2009 all over again.  What happens when the U.S. economy finally rolls over??  It’s going to be terrible news, especially considering the record amount of global debt.  According to the IIF, the Institute of International Finance, global debt reached a record high of $250 trillion in the first half of the year.  However, the IIF estimates that global debt will reach $255 trillion by year end.
