Free Money!!! March 2020

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!”

Jesus has opened the scroll and initiated judgment with a series of seals, trumpets, and bowls. With the opening of the third seal, John speaks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage for food. About 2,000 years ago, a denarius was a day’s wage for labor. We are living in and witnessing historical times and events. However, we are not witnessing the third seal of Revelation.

In an unprecedented move, the United States Federal Reserve slashed interest rates to ZERO! A new round of quantitative easing will be initiated worth $700 billion in treasuries and mortgage backed securities.

Emergency lending for banks has been reduced to .25%. Repayment has been extended to 90 days.

Requirement ratios for banks has been reduced to ZERO.

Here is the statement from the Federal Reserve.

“The coronavirus outbreak has harmed communities and disrupted economic activity in many countries, including the United States.”

“…is prepared to use its full range of tools to support the flow of credit to households and businesses and thereby promote its maximum employment and price stability goals.”

Here is the latest statistical data from around the globe.

  • 169,000+ infected globally
  • 6,500+ deaths
  • Spain is on lock down.
  • France is on lock down.
  • Germany is reported to close its borders on Monday.
  • Nike and Apple have essentially closed all stores globally.
  • United States has 3,600+ cases
  • States are closing public schools.
  • Hoboken, NJ has issued a 10:00 p.m. curfew.
  • Universities are moving to on line instruction and closing campi.
  • College and professional sporting competition has been suspended.

Many critics state there is much hyperbole and over reaction with the media reporting and government response to the coronavirus COVID 19. I would encourage those critics to look at Italy. Cases are now over 24,000 and the death toll is increasing. Physicians are now making decisions on who gets care and who does not. Hospitals and health care providers cannot meet demands. The number of cases has doubled in the last four days.

We do not want videos of overwhelmed hospitals and health care workers making decisions in the parking lot on who gets care and who does not.

Revelation 6:7-8 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

One quarter of the earth will be affected by death with the fourth seal! 1/4 of 7.8 billion is 1.95 billion!

Please understand. What we are watching and living is a human tragedy. I do not want to minimize this. But, this is nothing of the scope and scale of what is to come. We are not in the Revelation seals. There is time now.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

1 John 2:2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

Signs of a Late Business Cycle… Michael Douville

Luke 14:28-30 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’

Jesus is offering advice on many levels with the verses above. First piece of advice is to “sit down” and have a plan. Second is “count”. One needs to know what they have. Third is have a “foundation”. The fourth is have enough to finish the plan.

Do you have a plan for your life let alone a plan for a house or structure? Where are we in the economic cycle? Do you have a plan for the financial times we live?

The economic slowdown continues. The home builder Pulte is slowing. Harley Davidson is selling fewer motorcycles. These are the signs of a late business cycle.

Check out Michael’s latest video entry with fresh up to date economic data.

Why would the Federal Reserve put interest rates on hold? Debt is spiraling out of control. Check out Michael’s comments below on the debt load around the globe.

Do you have all your money in stocks and bonds? What happens if we see a sharp reduction in the markets. Have you prepared your life boat? Michael talks about alternate ways to make income without worrying about the markets.

The Other Side of the Peak…Featuring Michael Douville

Posted in Michael Douville, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

MichaelProverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel…

From the lows in March of 2009 to the lofty levels of today, by any metric, the Stock Market has done extremely well. Hardly anyone caught the very bottom, but even those that came close have doubled or tripled their investment; very well done! Lucky Investors have ridden the S&P and The Dow up to 2582 and 23,517 respectively and the ride UP has been FUN! Please pay very close attention to this chart, the Other Side is a completely different World. The higher the Peak becomes, the steeper the Other Side! There is no Plateau!

In order to preserve the Gains, a Courageous decision MUST be made; when to EXIT! Greed dictates grabbing every extra dollar one can; Prudence cautions that it is not what you make, but what you keep that counts! The climb to the Peak is exhilarating, even intoxicating. The Fall is depressing. Unfortunately, typical Human fashion,  the average Investor believes that the “Peak” will be recognized and they will escape in plenty of time to capture the Maximum gains. This “Time is Different” always becomes the Mantra! The brutal lessons of History teach that most Investors ride the wave up and then ride the wave down; this time the Fall may be devastating. The Central Banks of the World have exaggerated the Bubble with their Trillions of Dollars of Liquidity. The Federal Reserve has stated they will begin removing liquidity the 4th Quarter of 2017 at the rate of $10 Billion a month growing to $510 Billion withdrawn in 2018. The World Central Banks have pledged to reduce their liquidity injections from $2 Trillion annually to ZERO by April 2018.

Without Global Central Banks participation Risk will rise substantially. The Doctrine of Enough (or How Much do I Need?) prescribes taking the profits gained and moving to another Asset Class; reducing risk. Bonds have traditionally been the choice of risk adverse Investors. However, the Debt Binge of most Government Entities as well as many Corporate Entities make Bonds as risky or maybe even more so than Equities; this Asset Class should also be avoided.  Precious Metals and the larger class of Real Assets and Commodities are just starting to bottom after years of decline; the process has not yet completed. They are at or near the lowest values in decades.

Recognizing the coming shift in Cycles is not easy. However, the basic industrial components such as Iron Ore, Copper, Lumber, Oil,  and Aluminum will soon cycle off their bottoms. These are the components of Single Family homes which as the raw materials rise, house prices will also rise. Housing unlike Gold has a “Use Factor” of “Shelter” and is a necessary component of Life. Accumulating Single Family homes and providing “Shelter” by leasing them to families may not only transfer profits from an aging, riskier asset class to an emerging class, but also provide conservative, consistent, and monthly Income to weather an Economic Storm.
