Monday’s market wipeout devastates stocks as the price of gold surges to $1,470.
60% Probability Of A 1/2 Point Cut In September
August 5 (King World News) – Peter Schiff: “Thanks to today’s 850 point drop in the Dow, the markets are now pricing in a 60% probability of a 50 basis point Sept. rate cut. I wonder how many points the Dow has to fall before the markets price in a 100% probability of a 200 basis point rate cuts!”
The Real Reason For The Plunge In Stocks
Sven Henrich: “Part of the reason for this washout here is how complacently bullish people were positioned into the Fed. I called it the unfalsifiable belief in the Fed. For 10 years that has worked, but we need to also recognize when that no longer applies & rate cuts/easy money no longer work.”

The Real Reason Why Gold Is Surging
Peter Schiff: “CNBC is reporting that gold is not rising because of inflation, but because of uncertainty. CNBC is wrong again. Gold is rising because of the certainty that the Fed, and other central banks, will create more inflation. Rate cuts and QE are certain. That’s why gold is rising!”
