Fred Hickey says gold’s correction may be over as surprise $60 billion a month QE program is to combat shadow banking crisis.
“The Belly Of The Beast”
October 17 (King World News) – Fred Hickey: “Had interesting discussions today including with one who’d been in “the belly of the beast” (shadow banking system). I’m convinced the Fed’s surprise $60B a month QE program (while everyone was focused on the Trump/China show Friday) is to combat an evolving shadow banking crisis.
Shadow banking – the land of little oversight, leveraged loans, covenant-lites, leverage on leverage, investments in zombie cos. & now much lower valued Unicorns, has seen the exit door (IPO market) shut and the WeWork types implode. Bank loans that can be called bi-weekly.
WeWorks’ World Implosion
Also interesting is (coincidental?) timing of WeWorks’ world implosion & money market/repo interest rate crisis that doesn’t seem to be getting much better. $75B in repos today, despite fact that quarter end has passed as did the Sept 15 corp. tax payments.
S&P And Gold Rally Right As Repos Begin At 10:15 AM
QE -even $60B a mo. worth is a blunt tool, meaning Fed can’t direct funds where they necessarily might want them to go. Today’s $7.525B (maximum t-bill purchase) began at 10:15AM -almost the exact time the Dow Industrials, S&P & gold all started turning up from their lows of the day.
Will Shadow Banking Problem Lead To 2008-Style Crisis?
All of them bottoming & rallying at same time the t-bill purchases began. Coincidence? I think not. Will this potential shadow banking problem lead to a 2008-type crisis.Probably not. But there’s lots more t-bill purchases ahead in coming mos. which should be good for “quality” assets.
Gold’s Correction May Be Over
For gold, a week ago ECB was leading the charge with $20B QE per mo. & lowering rates. Now Fed is doing 3X ECB’s QE & also cutting rates. Not good for US$ which is rolling over (breaking below 98 tonight), but good for gold. Gold’s correction may be over. Would catch many by surprise.”
