Something Evil This Way Comes… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2022 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 3:18 She (wisdom) is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed.

Michael Douville is making the call for a recession. It is time to prepare. Think through your financial plan.

Inflation is the culprit. Gas prices are out of control and there is no end in sight.

Real Estate continues to increase in price in different parts of the United States. Demand continues for housing. It would appear rental property is a consideration. Home Buyer sentiment is crashing. One size does not fit all.

Some commodities (lumber, copper) are dropping in price.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is beginning to slow.

Jobless claims are beginning to increase. Jobs are starting to go away.

University of Michigan’s consumer index is the lowest in history.

The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates into an economic slow down. Historically, 100% of the time, this leads to a recession.

Is Historic Inflation of 15%, 20% or even 25% coming to YOU??? Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , on March 18, 2022 by paulthepoke

In November of 2020, I mentioned on my video that for the first time in over a decade, I saw Inflation Coming into the Pipeline. Even I am amazed at the intensity of the Inflationary Spiral. Inflation continues to be in the Pipeline and continues to cause problems.

Where are we in the Real Estate Cycle? We are about to enter the Explosive Phase!

Pundits across the Nation are continuing to call for a Housing Crash, but here in Phoenix, Arizona, I see no evidence of any slowdown let alone a Housing Crash. There is such a shortage here, I do not see how there can be a Crash. Phoenix is enjoying over 100,000 in new residents, but only 30,000 new units; 14,000 of those will be rental units leaving only 16,000 new homes for over 100,000 new residents. Real Assets are needed in Inflationary times.

Oil is spiraling upwards! Oil is over $100 a barrel. This is not good for the economy.

We are living in historic inflationary times. Copper, aluminum, iron ore, are going up and unless you are a Commodity Trader, the better Real Asset is a single-family home. How high will inflation go???

Is food insecurity and hyperinflation of grains on the horizon? The war in Ukraine is a factor. This is the bread basket of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

How are you going to protect yourself?

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to eat. John the Revelator promises that hyperinflation is coming at some point prior to the return of Jesus Christ. Hyperinflation is on the scene prior to the onset of the Great Tribulation. Are we watching the dominoes being put into place??? Are we witnessing the seeds of hyperinflation? Be on guard and watch!

Dr. Charles Nenner and Michael Douville Discuss Risk in the Markets, February 2022

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2022 by paulthepoke

Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

February 21, 2022: I had the pleasure of speaking with Charles Nenner.

In the opening remarks, Dr. Nenner mentions the Equity Market is heading for a ‘Situation’ similar to Bonds. Both Markets are heading into turmoil.

Charles and I speak about Bitcoin, Interest rates, commodities, Housing, lumber, Bonds, Gold, the Dow, and the S&P.

Charts further indicate the Equity Market may be heading into trouble. Commodities appear to be in a very favorable trend. Dr. Nenner also mentions Inflation could be 12 or 13%.

Charles Nenner displayed a Sunspot Chart that correlated amazingly well with the Stock markets and the Economy; when there is intense Sunspot activity, Stocks and the Economy do very well. Unfortunately, we are heading into a timeframe of reduced Electromagnetic intensity.

Charles Nenner is often seen on Bloomberg, CNBC, and Fox News. He has been interviewed by Forbes and The Financial Times.

When Charles Nenner speaks, it pays to listen. Click on the video below for the details.

China’s Evergrande & Inflation Continues… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , , on September 30, 2021 by paulthepoke

1 Chronicles 12:32a And of the sons of Issachar, having understanding of the times, to know what Israel should do.

Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels…

China has 65 million vacant housing units. Will this affect us? How will this affect the global economy?

Check out Michael’s comments on the situation in China and their faltering real estate company, Evergrande. They have missed debt payments for two weeks now. China state backed firms are being asked to buy Evergrande assets. This company is five times the size of Lehman Brothers. Remember 2008???

China is also having significant issues with their power grid. Coal is in short supply. Factories are shutting down across the country.

Inflation is driving the price of housing higher. The Phoenix housing market is up 33% in the last year alone. Prices around the United States are increasing as well. Michael says prices will go higher. How high will prices go?

The government continues to pump more money into the market. The government promises to pump even more money in the market! Commodity prices continue to go up. The end result is more inflation and prices go higher across the board.

Have a plan! Talk to your financial adviser!

Inflation In the Headlines! Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , on May 17, 2021 by paulthepoke

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

A hallmark of the beginning of the tribulation is hyperinflation as noted in Revelation 6 which leads to global famine. Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage just to eat. We should pay attention. And inflation is in the headlines. We are trending and living in inflationary times.

Wall Street Banks like Goldman Sachs are calling for inflation.

Inflation in Commodities has risen 73%, Lumber futures have risen 400%, Steel has risen 216%. However, homes have risen 11.2%… prices could go much, much higher.

Do not be priced out of the market. Particularly for Baby Boomers: protect your purchasing power! Protect yourself against inflation! Go buy a House right now!!!

Don’t forget about the cost of food. Soft commodity prices are on the rise as well. Prices at the wholesale level are taking up and off.

Are we on the verge of an inflation cycle??? We are living in the times of a historic money supply. The velocity of money is increasing. Money has to go some where in the economy. Governments around the planet are printing money as well.

Michael reviews the real estate cycle. Where are we in the cycle? Check out Michael’s financial update below.

Michael Douville sees inflation coming into the economy. In fact, inflation is just now entering the Economy; it is probably going to get worse. Commodities are increasing in price from lumber to copper to steel. The value of the dollar is likely headed lower impacting purchasing power.

Click on the YouTube link below for Michael’s comments.

https://michaeldouville.com/

Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell has publicly stated he does not mind if “inflation runs a little hot”.

Here are some quotes from Chairman Powell.

“When the time comes to raise interest rates, we’ll certainly do that, and that time, by the way, is no time soon. If inflation were to move up in ways that are unwelcome, we have the tools for that, and we will use them. No one should doubt that.”

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/14/powell-sees-no-interest-rate-hikes-on-the-horizon-as-long-as-inflation-stays-low.html

Everyone relax, the Federal Reserve has this under control…

Global Economics and Market (P)Review, June 2020… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2020 by paulthepoke

Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

1 Chronicles 12:32a And of the sons of Issachar, having understanding of the times, to know what Israel should do.

Business cycles come and go. What goes up must come down. What goes down eventually comes up again. Where are we in the cycle? Major market forces are coming together and they will impact our future and world. Understand the times we are witnessing.

Michael Douville breaks down the global economy and how trends in the dollar and interest rates will affect consumers. We live in historic and interesting economic times. Opportunity is around the corner.

Michael has talked with Dr. Charles Nenner regarding the real estate market, his timing model and charts. Mortgage rates are discussed. How low will interest rates go? Is it time to buy a new home or refinance an existing mortgage? Where will the housing market be in the next 18-24 months?

Michael discusses the impact of the dollar relative to commodity prices. Is the dollar starting to top out? What happens if the dollar loses its value? Commodities and goods are going higher in price.

Countries around the world are broke and cannot pay their bills in dollar denominated debt. What happens if the dollar gets stronger? Debt gets more expensive. Over 100 nations have reached out to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for financial help.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organization of 189 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.

Created in 1945, the IMF is governed by and accountable to the 189 countries that make up its near-global membership. The IMF is a part of the United Nations (UN) system. https://www.imf.org/en/About

Make decisions now. Prepare and plan. Navigate through current and future economic trends.

Be ready. The explosive phase is coming!!!
