Morgan Stanley Predicts Fed to Cut US Rates to Near Zero
Clarion News ^ | Aug 13, 2019 | Thomson/Reuters

Posted on 08/13/2019 10:07:34 AM PDT by Hostage

Morgan Stanley analysts said on Monday that they now expect the U.S. Federal Reserve to cut rates in September and then again in October.

… snip …

The bank joins a number of investors betting that the Fed’s first rate cut since 2008, late last month, will be the first of several moves to lower borrowing costs. Goldman Sachs said earlier this month it sees a strong chance of rate cuts in both September and October.

The reasons the financial press are passing around are as real as 'Epstein hung himself'.

The real reason is that the Fed is on notice that the jig is up, as Trump enforcers and the military counter-intel unit backing them have these bastards by the b*lls.

Sorry for my graphic expression and un-Christian like approach, but when it comes to the bankster cartel, I become a warrior ready to lay down my life for my country to see these bastards burn in Hell.

The Gold Standard is returning and although I don't believe gold has much intrinsic value, it is a reference point with constitutional dominion granted over it by our Treasury. And if in addition it is the weapon that will take down the Fed, then I'm all in for it returning as the standard.

I won't buy gold as long as these bank bastards have the derivative paper they can either throw at it or withhold to control its rise and fall in price, rigging the value and fleecing the emotional retail investors which is what they do best.

I am comforted by the very telling expression by POTUS last year that "we have enough gold to take down the Fed".

Don’t have to own gold to take advantage of the upward movement or price swings in general.

That’s what futures and options are for.

Zero percent.

What’s after that?

You don’t have to lecture the rudiments of central banking.

The cartel will pay zero but consumers will benefit downstream enough to ensure Trump’s victory in 2020.

Those with a deeply informed and educated view of history recognize technology renders the Fed obsolete.

The jig is up. I won’t say any more than that for now.

If I had to give a date I would say it would be in Trump’s 2nd term or in his successor’s term.

And there is a succession plan similar to what major corporations put in place when a key leader departs.

After four years of following Trump (early Aug 2015) I am convinced this has been all planned out as signaled on occasion by his 17th auxiliary. Trump himself has said his units have been planning his presidency for over a decade. This is not a normal presidency and there is nothing too ingrained in our normalcy bias that they won’t wipe away if it is unhealthy for the country.

The Normandy Invasion has nothing on what these people are unleashing.

Morgan Stanley says so. Let’s remember that in September and October, when we see what really happens.

Note to Trump: if you lower interest rates, you are taking money from people who have some savings, and it’s in banks, and they are not able to find jobs. In other words, they depend on the miserly interest that banks pay.

I’d like to believe that we’re going back to the gold standard, but I don’t.

The total debt of all the world’s governments far exceeds the value of all the gold in the universe. Going back now would trigger a calamity I fear.

Really? I sure couldn't tell by the Jeff Sessions appointment.

“Zero percent.

What’s after that?”

After Zero comes negative rates whereby we pay the Treasury for the privilege holding our money for safe keeping. It is already happening in Germany and Switzerland.

If it happens here expect the stock and bond market to explode upwards dramatically as cash holders seek any sort of return better than 0-

However I don’t see this happening since our debt load would not allow for bonds being so attractive they would find buyers willing to accept no reward for their risk.

“What comes after is the end of the Fed.”

Free bank laws or National Banking System II?

Land is something you don't wait to buy. You buy and wait.
