Dollar Appreciation Continues… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2020 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 20:10 Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD.

Micah 6:10-11 Can I forget any longer the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is accursed? Shall I acquit the man with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?

Michael

All currencies are not created equal. Values of currencies change. God is not a fan of currency manipulation. Global markets and governments manipulate currencies on a daily basis. Imagine that, humanity outside of God’s economic laws…

The end result of currency changes can be dramatic. Michael explains the consequences of a rising dollar and what it means to global economics.

Michael has been talking with Technical Analyst Walter Zimmerman. He has target prices of the DXY (US Dollar) at 103.00. In an extreme case, Zimmerman has a target of 120.00 for the DXY. The end result would be cheaper prices and deflation in the United States. The rest of the world would pay higher prices and experience inflation. The US dollar is currently the global reserve currency.

Oil prices could drop as low as $15 per barrel in extreme cases. Michael Douville comments if we hit 120.00 on the DXY, oil could be roughly $5 per barrel. Recently, the DXY touched 102.82 and closed today at 102.10.

Global debt is financed in dollars. At some point, the bill comes due for borrowing money…

These are interesting times and it pays to be informed and prepared. Have a plan. Talk with your financial adviser.

It would appear the current trend of a strong dollar continues as the world struggles with COVID-19 coronavirus…

Michael Douville has weighed in and expressed his thoughts. As always, Michael provides a common sense approach with practical advice.

One of the advantages of getting older are the episodes of Life we have been through. We have seen this before. It will be scary, it will give sleepless nights, but we are all going to come through this and be Fine! There will be stock rallies to help raise cash and there will be opportunities to buy other Investments.

We are all going to be FINE!! This will be Scary! There will be TURMOIL! This should lead to the Explosive Phase of the Real Estate Market. Remember, Real Estate is a separate asset class.

Dr. Charles Nenner Housing Update, Wall Street Blood Bath, March 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2020 by paulthepoke

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

One of the most influential Cycle Researchers in the World, Charles Nenner has recently release his charts on the housing industry. Please keep in mind, this information was released before the onset of COVID 19, the coronavirus. This was also released before the Saudis and the Russians engaged in a price war in the oil markets.

Charles Nenner a World Class Market Researcher has sent me his chart of Lennar which he uses as a proxy for the US Housing Market. The chart shows a slowing until late in 2020. However, as a separate asset class this may be a great investment to earn excellent cash flow from a conservative investment.

Click on the link below for Nenner’s thoughts.

 

No one knows how badly the Coronavirus will affect the Global Economy or the Individual Family. However, the world is connected. Be prudent, take precautionary actions such as extra food, medicine, fever reducers, water, and additional cash at home. Discuss Financial exposure with your Advisor, review the asset classes.

Michael shared his thoughts a couple of weeks ago regarding the financial and economic impact of the coronavirus. These comments are more timely than ever. Click on the link below for Michael’s insights.

 

Today was a certified train wreck in the financial markets. Russia and Saudi Arabia have engaged in a war over the price of oil. The result was a crash in the price of oil. The price for a barrel of oil dropped 24% in a day. West Texas Crude settled at $31.13 per barrel.

The Dow Jones Industrial, S&P 500, and the NASDAQ were all off by over 7% today. Circuit breakers kicked in less than 5 minutes into trading and the markets were stopped for 15 minutes.

The 10 year treasury note closed below .5% or 50 basis points. The 30 year noted was below 1.0%

COVID 19 continues to grow across the globe. Italy has officially quarantined the population of the entire country.

  • 113,000+ infected globally
  • 4,000+ deaths globally
  • Italy approaching 10,000 cases
  • 112 countries and regions affected
  • 605 cases in the United States

 

Wuhan Virus Update, March 3, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Persia/Elam/Iran, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other gods before me. -The Lord God, Yahweh

March 3, 2020: The global count of infected persons has reached over 90,000 and continues to climb. Over 3,100 have died. Cases are exploding across South Korea, Iran, and Italy. 58 countries and counting have been impacted by the pestilence. The total in the United States has now reached 90 infected.

Iran: The government and its officials of the Islamic Republic are taking a serious hit with the coronavirus. A couple of members have died and countless others have become infected. Allegedly, over 1,500 people are infected in the country.

Those numbers are in question based on the behavior being exhibited in the religious city of Qom. Travel has not been restricted to the religious sites in the city. We have this bold example of commitment on display from the Shia branch of the Religion of Peace. And we wonder why the disease is spreading like gang busters throughout the country.

Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.

South Korea: The latest numbers out of Seoul report over 4,800 infected. The center of attention is the leader of a religious cult. The man in the eye of the storm is Lee Man-hee, the leader of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus. Mr. Lee seems to think he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. He states he is “the promised pastor” and he is taking 144,000 people to heaven with him. Lee believes he is the fulfillment of Revelation. Unfortunately, Mr. Lee has recently been diagnosed with the Coronavirus.

The World Health Organization (WHO) continues with the idea the Coronavirus is not a pandemic at this time. Today we were lectured by the leader of the WHO, Dr. Tedros, on terms, labels, and political correctness in regards to the virus. For those of you who would like to use the proper terminology as to not offend any one, please go to the Twitter stream below https://twitter.com/WHO.

The economic impact of the virus continues to grow. Michael Douville provides his latest thoughts on the Wuhan Virus. Supply chains are being impacted on a global scale. Michael discusses the business cycle and how the role of the virus is interacting with the business cycle. Dr. Charles Nenner has also provided his latest charts with impact on the housing industry as well. Nenner is calling for a double dip correction in the housing market. Both Douville and Dr. Nenner are calling for interest rates to continue to fall. Make your plans now. Get your house in order. Things are going to slow down.

 

Daniel 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

We are definitely living in a time of people running to and fro. Humanity is able to quickly travel from continent to continent. We are watching firsthand how infection can rapidly spread around the globe.

Here is the latest statistical data from around the globe.

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

February 24, 2020: The Wuhan Virus has left main land China and is spreading internationally. The number of infected has seen a significant jump in South Korea, Italy, and Iran. Here is an overview from global headlines around the world from the internet.

wuhan iran

South Korea: The number of cases is now approaching 900 with 8 deaths. The government has placed the city of Daegu and its 2.5 million people on lock down. Samsung has closed operations in Gumi at a phone manufacturing facility where an employee has been infected.

~

Italy: The concern is the virus will spread into Europe. Austria has blocked traffic coming from Italy at the border. 11 towns east of Milan in northern Italy have quarantined. The towns have roughly 50,000 residents. Across the country, Italians are emptying grocery stores for supplies. Food shortages are being reported in northern Italy. Schools and museums have been closed. Airport screenings are now taking place. Milan Fashion Week has been severely impacted. As of the post, Italy reports 231 infected with 7 deaths.

~

Iran: There appears to be some conflicting information coming out of Shia leadership in Tehran. For the record, Iran is reporting 61 cases with 12 deaths. However, an Iranian legislator is stating there are 50 deaths in Qom. Of note, Qom is the home of Shia religious sites and Qom is also home to a nuclear facility.

Other foreign countries are not taking any chances. Turkey, Armenia, Afghanistan, and Iraq have closed their borders with Iran.

Complicating the situation, the Corona Virus is making its way into the Middle East.

The World Health Organization (WHO) remains stead fast in not calling the current situation a pandemic.

The stock markets around the globe are starting to react to the financial impact of the Wuhan Virus. The Dow Jones Industrial was down over 1,000 points at times today. Interest rates reached all time lows in the United States. 10 year Treasury notes closed at 1.396%. 30 year Treasury notes closed at 1.857%. Oil has fallen to $50 per barrel. Global supply chains are being impacted due to a lack of economic activity. Economic activity is zero in parts of the far east.

Wuhan Virus Update, February 2, 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Pestilence, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on February 2, 2020 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11b …and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

Thursday, 1/30/20: The World Health Organization finally declared a global emergency regarding the Wuhan Virus. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization is calling “all countries to work together in a spirit of solidarity and cooperation. We are all in this together, and we can only stop it together.”

Click on the link below for the WHO complete statement and declaration.

https://www.who.int/dg/speeches/detail/who-director-general-s-statement-on-ihr-emergency-committee-on-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

President Trump and the United States declared a public health emergency on Friday, 1/31/20.

“I want to emphasize that this is a serious health situation in China, but I want to emphasize that the risk to the American public is currently low. Our goal is to do all we can do to keep it that way,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield

The Wuhan Virus is starting to make an economic impact on global markets. On Friday, 1/31/20, the Dow Jones Industrial Index in the United States closed down 603.41 points, or 2.1%, to 28,256.03.

The economic impact is likely to be significant considering China’s consumption of goods as measured against the rest of the planet. Chinese financial regulators are set to provide $173 billion of liquidity when markets open on Monday, February 3, 2020.

Michael Douville has weighed in on the impact of the Wuhan Virus as well. The virus may be the tipping point for the global economy. Michael has been monitoring the slowing global economy for at least the last 6 months. Indexes show shipping around the planet is slowing. On Friday, the yield curve in the bond market inverted which indicates a slowing economy. Economic activity is halting across China because of the Wuhan Virus. Michael likes gold, silver, bonds and rental properties. As always, check with your financial consultant. Click on the link below for Michael’s comments on the Wuhan Virus impact.
