Lowest Ever: The Baltic Dry Index Plunges To 394 As Global Trade Grinds To A Standstill

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Container Ship - Public DomainFor the first time ever, the Baltic Dry Index has fallen under 400.  As I write this article, it is sitting at 394.  To be honest, I never even imagined that it could go this low.  Back in early August, the Baltic Dry Index was sitting at 1,222, and since then it has been on a steady decline.  Of course the Baltic Dry Index crashed hard just before the great stock market crash of 2008 too, but at this point it is already lower than it was during that entire crisis.  This is just more evidence that global trade is grinding to a halt and that 2016 is going to be a “cataclysmic year” for the global economy.

If you are not familiar with the Baltic Dry Index, here is a helpful definition from Wikipedia

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is an economic indicator issued daily by the London-based Baltic Exchange. Not restricted to Baltic Sea countries, the index provides “an assessment of the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. Taking in 23 shipping routes measured on a timecharter basis, the index covers Handysize, Supramax, Panamax, and Capesize dry bulk carriers carrying a range of commodities including coal, iron ore and grain.”

The BDI is one of the key indicators that experts look at when they are trying to determine where the global economy is heading.  And right now, it is telling us that we are heading into a major worldwide economic downturn.

Some people try to dismiss the recent drop in the Baltic Dry Index by claiming that shipping rates are down because there is simply too much capacity out there these days.  And I don’t dispute that.  Without a doubt, too many vessels were built during the “boom years”, and now shipbuilders are paying the price.  For example, Chinese shipyards reported a 59 percent decline in orders during the first 11 months of 2015…

Total orders at Chinese shipyards tumbled 59 percent in the first 11 months of 2015, according to data released Dec. 15 by the China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry. Builders have sought government support as excess vessel capacity drives down shipping rates and prompts customers to cancel contracts. Zhoushan Wuzhou Ship Repairing & Building Co. last month became the first state-owned shipbuilder to go bankrupt in a decade.

But that doesn’t explain everything.  The truth is that exports are way down all over the world.  China, the United States, South Korea and many other major exporting nations have all been reporting extremely dismal export numbers.  Global trade is contracting quite rapidly, and I don’t see how anyone could possibly dispute that.

The global economy is a mess, but many people are not paying any attention to the economic fundamentals because they are too busy looking at the stock market.

The stock market does not tell us how the economy is doing.  If the stock market is up today that does not mean that the economy is doing well, and if the stock market is down tomorrow that does not mean that it is doing poorly.

Yes, the health of the financial markets can greatly affect the overall economy.  We saw this back in 2008.  When there is a tremendous amount of panic, that can cause a credit crunch and make it very difficult for money to flow through our system.  The end result is a rapid slowdown of economic activity, and it is something that we will be experiencing again very soon.

But don’t let the day to day fluctuations of the stock market fool you.  Just because the Dow was up 227 points today does not mean that the crisis is over.  It is important to remember that stocks are not going to go down every single day.  On Thursday, the Dow didn’t even regain two-thirds of what it lost on Wednesday.  Even in bear markets there are up days, and some of the biggest up days in stock market history were right in the middle of the crash of 2008.

It is critical that we take a long-term view of things and not let our vision be clouded by every tick up and down in the financial markets.  Initial jobless claims just hit their highest level in about six months, and companies like Macy’s and GoPro are laying off thousands of workers.  Things are already bad, and they are rapidly getting worse.

And let us not forget the great amount of financial carnage that has already happened so far this year.  According to CNBC, approximately 3.2 trillion dollars of stock market wealth was wiped out globally during the first 13 days of 2016…

Almost $3.2 trillion has been wiped off the value of stocks around the world since the start of 2016, according to calculations by a top market analyst.

It has also been the worst-ever start to a year for U.S. equities, said Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, as both the S&P 500 and the blue-chip Dow Jones industrial average have posted their steepest losses for the first eight days trading of a year.

Over the past six months, there have now been two 10 percent “corrections” for U.S. stocks.  The only other times we have seen multiple corrections like this were in 1929, 2000 and 2008.  If those years seem familiar to you, that is because they should.  In all three years, we witnessed historic stock market crashes.

The stunning collapse of the Baltic Dry Index is just more evidence that we have entered a global deflationary crisis.  Goods aren’t moving, unemployment is rising all over the planet, and commodity prices have fallen to levels that we have not seen in over a decade.

Around the globe, there have been dramatic stock market crashes to begin the year, and we should expect to see much more market turmoil during the weeks and months to come.

If the markets have calmed down a bit for the moment, we should be very thankful for that, because we could all use some additional time to prepare for what is coming.

The debt-fueled standard of living that so many of us are enjoying today is just an illusion.  And many of us won’t even understand what we have been taking for granted until it is taken away from us.

A great shaking is coming to the global economy, and the pain is going to be unimaginable.  So let us enjoy every single day of relative “normalcy” while we still can, because there aren’t too many of them left.

    Nobody ever heard of this index until about three years ago. Just another concoction to fool the sheeple into thinking the sky is falling,

    • Mondobeyondo

      It’s been around for awhile. Most people still have never heard of this index.

            I am calm but considering moving you to a different category.

          • Guest

            That’s ridiculous, Lennie. I’ve been here since 2009. I’m not a troll.

            Have a glass of wine or something.

          • Lennie Pike

            O.K., I think I am calm but for you since you’re a regular, I will try to become even calmer, but your name “Guest” doesn’t inspire much confidence in me since it is hard to I.D. as I continue with my I.D. ing schedule which will last this entire comment section if I can get away with it, and I don’t see why I shouldn’t – it could be a very good idea and should be allowed a test run IMHO.

          • Lennie Pike

            Oh, I see now Guest, I have read 90% of everything you’ve said since 2009 thinking you were different people posting as a guest. I apologize, but you using that name makes me wonder if I was the only one – probably and I am sincerely sorry.

    • SP2300ROFL

      Nobody ever heard of this index until three years ago???? You can not be serious.

      • Lennie Pike

        Proven NWO troll who’s only purpose here is to destroy this blog site – to be ignored here but prayed for in Jesus’ name.

      Probable NWO troll.

    • http://www.coroflot.com/joelpeeters/portfolio Joel Peeters

      Really? On what planet do you live on? That index is one of the most important in the Economic and Political world for decades.

      Those who did not heard about the BDI are the one in the general public because it does not concern them directly which is pretty normal.
      However, in the Economic and Financial world that index is quite important to know about, since it concern Import/Export of a country, and so has a Political side to it as well in the conduct of a nation’s economy.

      So, the fact that YOU did not heard about does not mean it is a concoction for sheeple, it is just YOU being too lazy to make your homework, and then YOU coming on a blog like this one to utter non-sense and garbage because YOU have nothing else to say to push the discussion ahead in an interesting way…

          Thanks Lennie, I feel relieved lol…
          This being said you will have quite a lot of work on this blog with defining who is or not a troll… :-)

          • Lennie Pike

            I know. This is a one article gig. I already can see it isn’t going to do anything to stop the destruction of this blog by these probable Soros NWO satanic trolls, but maybe exactly that fact will convince Michael to do some censoring – nothing wrong with it, it’s why police officers exist – destruction of private property must be forcibly prevented. And this site is a great service to all things good.

            I always finish what I start so I will be classifying all additional commentators until the last one comments on this article, or until the last troll says something that is not a valid comment.

            Watch the video found embedded in any of today’s (1-15-2016) Prison Planet articles. This is why the trolls are here attempting to destroy and it is not play to them – it is very serious business as it should be to us.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            What power do you think you have over so-called trolls? Let’s face it.. you are impotent.

          • Lennie Pike

            The power to convince the owner of this blog to delete all of your comments even if you post under a different name.

    • SunnyFlaSnotress

      It’s been around for about 30 years.. Not very long in the grand scheme of things.

  • Mondobeyondo

    The BDI is the lowest it has ever been. EVER.
    Which basically means there are hardly any (or no) goods and freight moving around the oceans. I’ve heard all intercontinental transport has ground to a halt – that there isn’t even one cargo ship on the move. You’d think there would be at least one freighter carrying Barbies and Nikes from China or something. But not even that.
    This is beyond bad.

    • Rainy In Oregon

      It is interesting that you brought up Nike. My son’s fiancee has worked at Nike headquarters here in Oregon for 8 years. They are known for their extravagant employee parties (lots of booze, live entertainment, amusements, and of course, sports stars) Right before the holidays they announced no holiday parties and a freeze on wage increases. Nike comes across as an extremely generous company, but I think even they are feeling the effects of our lackluster economy

        • Rainy In Oregon

          Well thank you for properly classifying me…you made my day! lol

            Making your day makes mine! And that is what life is all about trolls – nothing else – “Love one another”.

    “The debt-fueled standard of living that so many of us are enjoying today is just an illusion.”

    Absolutely. It’s all an illusion. It’s scary to contemplate how the masses will respond when they lose everything that they bought on credit. It makes me wish I lived in Wyoming or some other remote place.

    • Marco

      It may be an illusion, but it sure is a strong one, and in some places, it’s not an illusion at all – at least not right now. I live in Silicon Valley and you’d be hard pressed to think there was any problem. 2 bedroom 1ba apt rent is now around $3500. Generic, single family home is close to a million bucks. I make well over $100k by myself and we live in a mobile home park. It’s as nutty as a jar of JIF around here.

        Your area seems to be an exception. But it is like fantasyland over there.

      • Horiboyable .

        Don’t worry we have entered a deflationary cycle and houses will decline for the next 15 or so years, house prices will fall by 50% maybe more. Central Bankers have juiced the markets for far too long. You will begin to see sovereign defaults all around the world especially in Europe. When the bond market collapses and all that capital is destroyed then you will see a recession like you have not seen before. It will make 2008 look like a minor bump in the road.

        • Lennie Pike

          How no inflation in next 15 years?

          A troll quiz.

          • Horiboyable .

            Since the dot com crash the central banks have juiced the economy for the last 15 years through cheap money supply. It took 15 years for folks to accept that they need to spend (UK London) £510,000 to get a house when the average wage in London is about £35,000. Do the maths! House prices traditionally is about 3.2 of income and it will return there. We are going through a tulip phenomena. What you need to understand is the process has already begun, the USD will wipe out the emerging markets. This will be a bond issue and I think you will see sovereign defaults all over the world. Bonds are the foundation of a sound economy and when the bond bubble bursts, it will bring down the whole world. I just hope we don’t get to a Mad Max moment. The crux of the issue today is there is simply too much debt. Look at Japan, their housing topped out in 1992, house prices there are still down 60% from their 1992 highs. Part of the issue is cycles and part is demographics. Merkel let in all those refugees because Germany’s demographics are awful. They have a bunch of old people expecting pensions and free health care but they don’t have the population to tax enough…. enter 1 million Syrians, its crazy. This will cause the EU to fall apart.

          • Lennie Pike

            You’ve already been classified as not a troll (not officially since I was not assigned the job) because of other absolutely true comments you made.

            Some say deflation and there are reasons to say deflation. Others say inflation, which exists now and much more than the official rate even with record low fuel prices. I’m in the inflation camp until unpayable debt is wiped clean either by default or an attempt to pay it through hyper-inflation and until the World “currency” is completely implemented. Until everything is in place to implement it, it is inflationary to artificially keep markets from crashing, to keep Too Big To Fails in operation with bailouts, and to keep bankrupt governments operating without tax revenue.
            Also many people, and institutions will insist on being paid and will see to it that they are at the expense of everyone else. Even with much default of debt, all of the reasons I mentioned will still be valid. At least that’s my opinion.

            More importantly, please watch today’s (1-15-2016) prison planet video with Alex Jones. The video can be found by reading any or today’s articles at Prison Planet. Very true and almost historically inspirational – a must watch.

          • Horiboyable .

            Commodity prices are down to 1999 levels and other assets will return there too.

          • Lennie Pike

            But finished products other than fuel are increasing in price especially food. Fuel down and food up? One hundred million out of the workforce with not much money to spend and there is still a lot of inflation? A whole lot of money is being created and put into circulation. So much that it seems the fact that commodities prices are crashing (except gold and silver) is irrelevant.

            Where is the deflation? The question should be, why is there not deflation when there should be.

          • Horiboyable .

            There is deflation, where I shop for groceries the fruit and veg section is down by 50% and on many other products too. I have developed a taste for rump steak because it has become very cheap. What we don’t see is deflation in the biggest item, housing. Here in the UK the government has dedicated its policy to keep the housing market juiced up because if the housing market corrects its self and it will all banks are on the hook, hence the new European bail in rules. The process has started already and there is no way of stopping it now. They should have bitten the bullet back in 2007/8 and taken the hit. Any person that has 50% equity in their house now will loose everything, they will go into negative equity. Just think of the tulip fantasy in Holland, that is where we are at right now. The average price of a house in London is £512,000 and the average wage in London is £33,000, can you see where this is going to go all wrong. Central Banks have juiced the markets with so much cheap money there is no true price discovery anymore. We are heading into a massive reset. TBH, I don’t know if this will become a Mad Max situation, I hope not. The wild card will be how the politicians will react to the situation. WWII was all about economics.

      I live in Wyoming. We aren’t doing so hot. Drilling is down, we are an oil state. Gas dropped here to $1.89 a gallon. Places laying off everywhere. J. C. Penny’s locally is closing. We have coal but the boy king is attacking that too. Our trona and chemical plants are keeping our local economy alive, but we are now running a state deficit because the rainy day coffers are being drained.
      They are talking about finally implementing a state income tax.

    From Jan 12th-19th, The Atlanta Home & Gift Mart in Atlanta, GA is the place to be if you are a retailer, importer, distributor, etc, for anything to do with retail for gifts, holiday stuff, candy, lawn & garden, home accessories, etc. I and a business associate go every year, the same first 2 days, yesterday and today. If you’ve never been, imagine Black Friday X 100K every day this gift show is open. IT IS A CIRCUS with retailers and exhibitors from around the world doing business in 3 buildings.
    Yesterday I parked on level 3 and today level 4 of the parking deck I always park in. I HAVE NEVER parked any lower that 7. Never. The first day, we breezed through registration. Usually, it takes at least 15-30 minutes to get our badges. it took 1 minute. The crowds were not there. I’m telling you, it was scary to see what we saw. It is always so packed, the exhibitors don’t have time to talk on the phone, much less go to the restroom. I should have counted how many I saw looking at their phone.
    STOP MAKING EXCUSES AND GET YOUR FAMILY PREPARED FOR A LONG DEPRESSION. IT IS COMING.

          I believe you. Just trying out a new tactic ID ing the trolls that are destroying this blog site.

          I know you are not one of them – unless you’re really good. Check the comment section of the previous article to see the destruction that took place.

          • Jacynthia Read

            The best advice is to ignore the trolls.

          • Lennie Pike

            O.K.. You may be right. I don’t want to keep this up anyway, but since you have never posted a comment here ever before as far as I know, I will continue my troll patrol until all comments for this article have been completed.

            As far as I know, you have never commented here, so with all due respect: possible NWO troll but not probable.

          • Jacynthia Read

            No, I’m not a troll. I do post here, but mostly I just read for information.

          • Lennie Pike

            O.K.. You do seem familiar so I will go out on a limb and take you for your word but one can not do that with and actual troll.

          • Mystic Light

            I’m with you, I don’t post but I read for the information including the comment sections because many times someone has a great idea, suggestion or link. Ignore the trolls, they’ll go away without a response.

I have seen some terrible things but I don’t feel the need to brag or even discuss them with you. You are pathetic and I genuinely feel bad for you.

          • CASTIEL

            Yes…there is the problem of this sand monkeys trying to get to europe….but its still safe…..There ain t war…yet… and criminals exist everywhere….i believe they also exist in USA right? and a lot of muslims also….but if you are very afraid you can always go to greenland

          • Robert

            “Nice”reply. Terrorists are not common criminals as liberals try and make them out to be. We are talking mass murderers. And of course we have terrorists here but this is where I live and where I am armed. In Europe, you do not get to own a firearm for self-protection. You get to be a victim. The good news is that liberal Europe can keep,taking masses of migrants which reduces pressure for the US. With any luck, Mr. Trump will be elected and will limit Moslem influx. Greenland is still Europe so that will not be on my destination list. I think the US will come out on the better end of this “war” while Europe implodes as it has in many wars.

            Well we are all animals in one respect, humans having evolved from others. But I understand your intention is to show that you see these people as low and not advanced like westerners. But is it a race thing for you or religion or certain regions of the world? Who is acceptable in your way of seeing people and what about how many advance through education, or do you categorise a whole nation. And what about Europeans gassing and burning bodies of millions? where does that put advanced supposedly more civilised?

          • CASTIEL

            My friend today most people are animals…they can be europeans americans chineses muslims…..ects one worse than others…..thats why the world is collapsing…….but hose from ISIS kicking babies to death burning children alive all in name of religion…..what you call them? then a lot of people run away from this….and what they do to the people who helped them? they rape women children…..they steal and they kill…..but even with the evil in this world ……yes western people are more civilized and advanced…i say that because i already been in africa……and i know what i saw

Everytime you hateful Islamics burn someone in cages, doi a mass shooting or bombing or behead someone we harden our views of “Your Human People>” So go pack up and smoke that in your Hash pipe. You cannot demand “US” to change our perceptions. Try starting at voicing your concern within your hateful Islamic groups first to condem violence. Then maybe someone might listen to you.

          • George Washington

            What are you talking about, I have fought for 8 years, do you know how many people sign up for combat? Not many.

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I thought I’d chime in. I own an internet retail store, and our sales the past 6 months have been down by almost 40% from our peak. We used to have a lot of international orders– usually 5 or 6 a day from Spain, and several from other countries. Those have completely stopped. Now almost every order is from the U.S. and Canada, and those are slowing way down as well. Some of it is competition (Amazon didn’t use to carry the products we sell, and now they have all of it), but I believe a big part is the economy slowing. We are a very small business, but is has kept a roof over our head for the past 8 years. I’m not sure we’re going to make it through this year. I’m hopeful, but it’s a very cautious optimism.

            I’m praying. Probably not hard enough or often enough, but I’m trying to do better. I do know that even if my business totally bombs out this year, we will be ok. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

          • carl

            Yes remember if bad things happen to you it is because you did not pray hard enough or there is some secret sin you are hiding and have not repented for.

            Honestly, prayer while it may calm your inner turmoil, will not do anything for you financially.

            If you see things are slowing down, start planing for it now. God isn’t going to help your internet business. He’s too busy not helping children get abused and people who are starving to death every minute of the day.

          • Lennie Pike

            If enough people followed God’s teaching including yourself, there would be a lot fewer and possibly no hungry and abused children. It would be God at work – not you.

            God helps millions of people through the actions of His Servants – you gonna tell God how to take care of His Business? Nothings gets done your way!

          • Carl

            Tell that to the Indians who were massacred by the Puritans in the name of their god and bible.

          • Lennie Pike

            Nice try but the Puritans were wrong and were obviously disobeying God.

            Read the Bible and see if you can find anywhere in it where God’s teachings say for his followers to go on a killing spree of innocent people to steal their land and whatever else.

            Anytime anyone tries to blame anyone’s evil actions on them following God, it is immediately seen as a ridiculous and a desperate attempt to run.

            You can run, but you can not hide.

    I am entering a free program here in Phoenix at the public library to start your own business. I simply can not find work at the age of 49 in this town and even though I don’t care much for this city, I have family here and it is home. So here I stay and I don’t care to do anything illegal or shady to raise cash, so I am going to just this build a business program. But it sure doesn’t sound very promising, given what the economy is really like – not trusting the government figure and reading blogs such as this for what’s really going on. I will soldier on but my gut feeling is that a great reset, much bigger than 2008, is coming. We may be in the midst of it now for all I know – but if we are, I for one think things will get much worse over time. All I have to do is look at the national debt – a number that is so high that it is mathematically impossible to pay off – and realize that the US is living on burrowed time. I don’t have the answers but I believe staying out of debt and keeping calm will help.

Whenever an empire collapses civil unrest and war are normally not far behind.

        Read zerohedge. Best site on the internet. They keep up with all market news and world issues.

        • Horiboyable .

          Yes Zerohedge, Martin Armstrong and wolfstreet and of course this site. I follow a hand fall of sites so I can cross check information. Here in the UK the main stream news is awful. Watching the BBC is like watching GMTV again, it is utter garbage so is ITV. To get any type of decent news I have to watch RT or Aljezzera

        Rob, you are not alone, I will be 50 in March and have been on a rollercoaster ride financially since 2008. I have taken some retraining and a certificate to change careers, and that was short lived. I am now renting for the first time in my life and have a customer service job that barely keeps things paid, with obozos “affordable” health care act….is simply making things more difficult.

        This is the time to seek the Lord with all your heart, and fasten your seat belts, I think we are in for one heck of a ride, and are entering territory that none in our r generation or those younger has ever experienced.

        May God Bless you and yours, and keep your chin up, we will get through the “change” that is happening.

I’m a hustler, I’ve always been able to find a way to make it. I’ve worked 7-days a week, worked 2 jobs, 7-days a week. I’ve done everything in my POWER to stay afloat. SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!

      The job market in Phoenix is terrible, Rob. My children, along with their spouses, had to move to the Bay area find a decent job. Not very encouraging, am I? I do wish you the best in starting your own business. Things just may work out differently for you! Hope so.

    • Peter

      I wish you luck but.
      Over 80 percent of businesses fail, in the best of times.You can actually get better odds a t the race track.Trying to start one in the worst of times is almost impossible.You should never start a business out of desperation, it could lead you to ruin.My advise open your mind. There is a big world out there, places like Indonesia and Vietnam are far more business friendly.
      Why not open a beer kiosk in some warm place.Its actually a lot easier then you think. Tell these people in this course they are out of their mind if you think you can run a business in the USA. They have no Idea what they are talking about. If they had a successful business they wouldn’t be there teaching you, on the government dime. Why would you want to learn from the losers, that give you bad advice?.

    Freight by boat is way down. Freight by rail is also down. Freight by truck, down as well. Obvious, the economy is shrinking. For those who deny it, your choice. But reality has a way of getting everyone’s, at some point.

    • Lennie Pike

      It’s K!

    • afchief

      I don’t see Semi-truck traffic down. In fact I see an increase. I travel over 240 days a year all over the country and just this past weekend I have noticed an increase in truck traffic.

      I can’t speak for boat or rail, but truck traffic IS up.

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        It is not possible to know from driving your auto that truck traffic is UP or DOWN……there are statistics used for this calibration.

        • afchief

          Bill, I travel by car 98% of the time and I am seeing an increase in semi traffic. I thought it would slow down in January with the holidays over. It has not. It has actually increased.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            I will take the time to check the Freight Ship by Truck mileage.

            But without checking I am thinking that the fuel costs lower would increase ship by Truck possibly.

          • Rorschach

            Just because you observed increased semi-traffic you have to keep in mind that global shipments, demand and trade has sharply contracted and decreased. Rail traffic is also a big indicator of economic health and activity and it is not doing well either.

      • K

        Wolf street web site. 10/28/15. Also perhaps in your area it is. But the general trend is down. Container freight, which is moved by both truck and train has fallen off, quite a bit. Has something new opened in your area. Amazon warehouse, walmart warehouse, ups, or fedex center? Has road work shifted some traffic, on the roads you travel. I can tell you, some severe weather, has caused off and on road closures. Might have caused more traffic, in your area.

        • afchief

          I have been traveling by car in the southeast for the last 3 weeks. Lot’s of semi traffic. Lots!!!

          • K

            As I mentioned, there have been weather closures, on roads such as I 90. Perhaps some traffic shifting south? I do not doubt your observation. Perhaps something has happened, that the stats have not caught up with yet.

    Glad you put “normalcy” in quotes because, as you know, the real word is “normality”…

    • http://www.coroflot.com/joelpeeters/portfolio Joel Peeters

      Richard, although I agree with your grammar correction you propose here from time to time, I disagree with your assertion about the word “normalcy”. It is a word used everyday and is not wrong, so it is as real as “normality”. We don’t say “normality bias” but well “normalcy bias” and it is not wrong, just new.

      You know like me that English is a living language, so new words are, and have been, created in its long life. “normalcy” is one of them. Even if it is not in lexicons does not mean it is incorrect, it would just mean that it was not introduced yet. The usual way words are confirmed is from the down-top. Once it becomes a general and usual term in the public it is viewed as a word on the same level of old one…

            Yes they do. The FED can buy all the bonds and junk they want. The gov can borrow MORE and the FED will buy it up. It ain’t over……………………..just yet.

            The gov can “require” all loyal Americans to purchase treasury issue for ALL retirement plans. They will start with 10% of you holdings. If you don’t, there will be a “special tax” like for those who REFUSE to purchase Obamacare from the chosen Health Care Companies (remember, we are the Land of the Free).

          • jox

            Actually they can not. The FED has hit a limit: they know that they are creating new bubbles and so they have started to raise rates. They cannot create more money without assuming a high risk.

            They government can raise taxes or sell ‘patriotic’ bonds. But all that money raised will reduce consumer spending, reducing economic activity and taxes.

            Yes they cand do it, but cannot escape from the hard and unintended consequences.

    IT may not be from decreasing trade as much as OVER-CAPACITY. If you have too many ships, then you will have a constant declining shipping rate regardless of the quantity of goods shipped.

    I would not panic and think its possible for key indices to be slightly higher by weeks end. IMHO that does not include Russell 2000 that broader index likely remains under pressure. After that I’m still expecting lower levels across the board between now and March. 1881 seems key on sp500 IMHO if thats violated decisively (1%+ lower) then another 5%+ decline imminently would not surprise me. Imho much of last weeks pressure was pent up from last year – money managers waiting for the calendar to flip and push taxable events out till 2017 filings and that race to the exits may have abated. In the words of the omniscients: at this point it may all be about the evolution of the incoming data…..

    Lately in the news, I have heard of these big cargo ships missing at sea. Most of the time they blame it on inclement weather like big storms at sea. In light of the BDI being so low, maybe they are sinking the cargo at sea. One just went down in the Bahamas with all the crew aboard (El Faro). How often to these cargo ships sink even in high seas?

        • SP2300ROFL

          Flight to quality into treasuries = opportunity for leveraged inverse etf – TMV and SBND. Flight to safety in precious metal ..not so much IMHO but its always time to buy silver. Will outperform in crisis or if GDP ever 4%+

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            I wouldn’t call treasuries “quality”. Paper promises with fixed returns, as opposed to PMs which are real and are the perfect hedge.

          • SP2300ROFL

            Doesn’t matter what you call it. Get an education or keep guessing and missing opportunities.

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            Doesn’t matter what you call it either. People who are much smarter than you with your community college degree agree with me.

          • SP2300ROFL

            A flight-to-quality is a financial market phenomenon occurring when investors sell what they perceive to be higher-risk investments and purchase safer investments, such as US Treasuries. This is considered a sign of fear in the marketplace, as investors seek less risk in exchange for lower profits.

            Flight-to-quality is usually accompanied by an increase in demand for assets that are government-backed and a decline in demand for assets backed by private agents.

            Its an industry standard term and in an algo driven market your ridiculous notions are meaningless. ROFL

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            I still wouldn’t call treasuries “quality”. Only the brainwashed (you) believe in that nonsense.
            When an economy collapses, “quality” is found in financial instruments that hold real value – precious metals, real estate, marketable skills, etc.

            Maybe it’s not too late to get a refund on your “degree”.

          • SP2300ROFL

            Watch and learn as treasuries continue to outperform. Many of the uneducated and inexperienced like yourself have those comical notions of precious metals- always comedy watching the homeschooled speculate which algos with unlimited capital fleece them. Perhaps a glance at Exters Pyramid will suffice to see how ludicrous your assumptions are.

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            Treasuries may very well outperform. There are plenty of sheeple who panic and run to Big Nanny Government for safety, even though it caused the problem.
            But as conditions continue to worsen, as they are today, more and more people will turn to PMs – as they are today. That’s not an assumption, that’s simply fact. Can you handle the truth? I suspect not.

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            If you call a 2% return “outperforming”.

            Until they make “hording” gold a felony, as they did around 1932. Guns and Gold is what they want to take from us. I wonder why.

          • Lennie Pike

            What they did in 1932 was illegal, and so will be any attempt at gun confiscation because they will artificially create a reason to declare Martial Law. Actually they are and have been creating that reason for a while now.

            For one, there is a reason this they are allowing the U.S. to be totally invaded and the economy destroyed! Their plan is running on schedule as planned.

      • Lennie Pike

  • Alcoholic Prepper

    Just because you see trucks on the road doesn’t mean that we aren’t in a depression. Some industries roll on regardless. I think about what Michael has written regarding South America, and that’s what’s coming for us eventually. I’m 42, and my career started with layoffs in the manufacturing recession of 2001. As a result, I have been prepping for this practically my whole adult life.

    • Lennie Pike

      Not a NWO troll***

  • Steeve Girard

    I have been telling you, in another article, why this is happening. Let me repeat. The supply chain is being short circuit because people are ordering stuff by internet to more local providers, they are either, moving themselves with their own transport equipment to a local provider, using an amateur transport company like Uship, or using the postal package companies. Skipping in effect the huge and costing supplying line. The fact is, the volume of stuff moving around has not changed much, it’s from where it comes that has changed and how it is transported. That behavior contributes to reduce the number of miles stuff takes to go around. Which of course will increase pressure on commodity deflation, especially gasoline and oil.
    .
    The shipping industry as it is now… is a technological dinosaur.
    .
    Companies will go bankrupt, as people wizen up, to the use of internet to find the nearest providers slashing the cost of the products, even Wallmart is now adopting this philosophy, which causes an increase in direct deliveries, at the expense of the centralized van delieveries, which reduces it’s costs.
    .
    There is also another change in media support, to which the internet is directly responsible. Games, books, music, media, movies… do not need anymore a physical support. They can be ordered and downloaded from the web. Which reduces the physical volumes.

    • REALIST

      Wal-Mart gets much from China. Amazon and other internet dealers do the same. This article is about trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic SHIPPING, not anything to do with what FedEx, Metro, UPS sends to you from a warehouse that is stocked from items from….you guessed it….CHINA.

      • Steeve Girard

        I never said they stop, I said they reduced they dependency on China based products.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Steve I believe that Realist has it correct………

    • Lennie Pike

      Sounds like an honest opinion.

  • Rhialto the Marvellous

    Number of people who are either a government employee, unemployed or not in labor force in America –
    133,585,713

    Number of private sector jobs in America –
    118,268,520

    • Rorschach

      Also take into account the $211 Trillion fiscal gap, the “real inflation” figures and the true unemployment according to shadowstats (~23%) and you have a perfect storm.

    • Bill

      Very few people understand the scary significance of your numbers.

    DJI ..fell another 500 pts, el ohh el.

    Last time, my crystal ball predicted, that things will fall to 12,947 ! !
    What we see is that people are not buying stuffs anymore. Tech Stocks are just “empty talk” and “NO walk”. People just got bored with the tech industry. Amazon is into the shipping business right now ! Walmart stores are closing –PLUS a hundred more jobs lost in other sectors – of retail. Remember 2016 is the year of the MONKEY — whatever that means.

    They need to raise the interest rates to stablize ALL this Horze shet !

    Than there was the SOTU – – by Kevin Hartz, with more “BALONEY” — like someone was working for Central intelligence –> el ohh el.

  • Fellie Chn

    My best bet right now would be as a UBER driver making $500/day !

    • Steeve Girard

      UBER driving will become illegal in Quebec, because we have what we call the taxi law. It fixes prices, rates and territories. Couple that with public transport laws which determines which companies can hold which lines. It is a fine working system.

      • Fellie Chn

        Our Light Rails system here is a mess. Our leaders are great pretenders . . .all they know is tax the workers and get elected.

A few days ago when classes just started my liberal political science professor told me that the NWO is coming and there is nothing that we could do about it. Also, he said the barcodes behind every stop sign was to give UN troops details on how and where to take away the publics weapons. It’s coming don’t believe me I really don’t care about the non believers who think the conspiracy theorists are trolls. Time tells all.. agenda 21, Project Blue Beam; Behold a Pale Horse.

    has come.’ 11″And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more– 12cargoes
    of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and
