The World's Five Largest Bond Markets Are Syncing Up For
Another major economy is facing the ugly prospect of rising inflation.
A central theme in our analysis of The Everything Bubble is that Central Bankers are focused on only one thing: maintaining the bull market in bonds at all costs.
The reasons are as follows:
1) Bonds are what finance the Government’s massive entitlement spending/ welfare programs.
2) With massive ownership of bonds thanks to over $15 trillion in QE, Central Banks are extremely exposed should bonds collapse (and yes, Central Banks can go bust).
With that in mind, we’ve been guiding our clients to focus on the dangers of rising bond yields due to surging inflation globally. Rising bond yields= falling bond prices. Falling bond prices=the bond bubble could burst.
And a bursting bond bubble= SYSTEMIC reset as entire countries go broke (think Greece in 2010).
On that note, China is the latest major economy to see its bond yields rise as inflation takes hold. Yields on China's 10-Year Government bond are breaking out to the upside as I write this.
With China now experiencing higher bond yields (higher borrowing costs in the
bond market), all FIVE of the world's largest bond markets are warning of
rising inflation: the US's, Japan's, Germany's, and the United Kingdom's bonds
are all flashing "DANGER" with multi-year breakouts occurring in
their 10-year bond yields.
The above chart is telling us in very simple terms: the bond market is VERY worried about rising inflation. And if Central Banks don’t move to stop hit now by ending their QE programs and hiking rates, we’re in for a VERY dangerous time in the markets.
Put simply, BIG INFLATION is THE BIG MONEY trend today. And smart investors will use it to generate literal fortunes.
Imagine if you'd prepared your portfolio for a collapse in Tech Stocks in 2000... or a collapse in banks in 2008? Imagine just how much money you could have made with the right investments.
THAT's the kind of potential we have today.
