What the future will hold is such a dramatic sharp burst to astonishing new price levels of several thousands of dollars. This does not even require hyperinflation. It is not likely that the United States would enter a hyperinflation mode. The system would collapse long before that takes place. The much more likely result will be a complete currency default with a replacement of a new currency. This is one way government defaults by using a shell game so that the average person does not understand he was just taken to the cleaners.

The FED Cannot Keep Stocks Up
What a difference a month makes. As I prepared to begin my Labor Day weekend in late August the financial media was abuzz with predictions of stock market doom. You could barely read anything without being confronted with several references to the dreaded Hindenberg Omen and how the appearance of several of these had all but guaranteed an imminent stock market collapse. There were plenty of reasons to be bearish. The market performed horribly in August and the economy was clearly still in the dumps despite a continued endless propaganda to the contrary. Nevertheless, the constant predictions of doom was indeed a great contrary indicator and barring some monster reversal today we are about to finished the month of September +10% in what is typically the worst month for stocks. It is set to be the best September in 70 years.
The truth of the matter is while the relentlessness and strength of the rally did surprise me a bit the fact that we bounced hard did not. Ironically, the reason I thought this could happen is because I am SO bearish. At the end of the day, if you are coming from the angle that I am you need to assume the stock market is a political tool for those in charge. I have said this time and time again.
