  • What China's banking crisis means for you
  • The term banking crisis is often overused. Certainly, there are times when it's appropriate, like during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, however it's usually just a term used to describe a rather minor disruption to the normal functioning of a country's banking sector. Well, that's not the case with China currently. The country is in the midst of a true banking crisis. How bad is it? Well, th... ››› more

  • Inflation has likely peaked - but if it hasn't, we're in trouble.
  • The US consumer price inflation rate (CPI) for June 2022 was released last week, coming in at a shocking 9.1%. By comparison, the number for last year, June 2021, was 4.9%. And back then, this was seen as a huge problem. Remember, the US targets an inflation rate of just 2%. That's the bad news. The good news is we're seeing definite signs the inflation rate is set to fall. US gasoline price... ››› more

  • It's the Fed stupid
  • The US Fed is a main player in the world's financial system. As the central bank of the world's largest economy, and thus the institution that controls the world's reserve currency, its rate decisions are always closely watched. However, in the current high inflation environment, it takes on an extra level of significance. I would go as far as to say, that if you are looking to make any type... ››› more

  • Is Japan becoming the next Turkey?
  • For younger readers it might be hard to understand what a big deal Japan was before the 1990s. This relatively small country, devastated by WW2, rose like a phoenix from the ashes and became the world's second largest economy, in little over a single generation. If you were to ask people in 1990 what Japan's future would hold, most would have told you it was set to become the next global superp... ››› more

  • The current selloff is great for long-term investors. Here's why…
  • Over the last few months, I've written quite a few rather bleak articles (to say the least). I've issued warning after warning about the state of the financial markets. So, if you follow my Money Morning column regularly, you may easily believe I'm a permabear. A permabear is someone who believes markets will fall no matter what the conditions on the ground look like. Given my very negative sla... ››› more

  • I think it's GAME-OVER for the South African Rand in 2022
  • Since last year, emerging currencies have been falling. Scrap that… CRASHING… We aren't sure why exactly, but I think it's all down to what is happening with the US. You see, the FED is expecting to raise their interest rates this year. This will help dampen the inflation rate. As this is good for the GDP and the economy, it will lead to US dollar strength and weakness among o... ››› more
