Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

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.

Rising Interest rates and now rising Inflation are a Dangerous Duo for those Retired or Retiring soon.

In Michael Douville’s latest video, he offers a tutorial with charts. Michael breaks down interest rates, the bond market, Commodity Spot Index, inflation concerns, and the Case Shiller Home Price Index.

Lastly, Michael reviews where we are in the 18 Year Real Estate Cycle? Prices should continue to go up but for how long?

Printing Money!!! Michael Douville

39% of all dollars in the economy were created in 2020. Keep in mind, the Federal Reserve was created in 1919. Of all the dollars created in the last century, 39% were in the last year alone. And to top it off, more money is promised into the system moving forward.

Can you say inflation potential??? The consumer is experiencing a loss of purchasing power. Imagine what will happen if inflation starts to take off and up. What is your hedge against inflation?

Where are we in the 18 year real estate cycle?

Huge gains have been made particularly for high leverage properties. There is a temptation to capture the gains by selling. The Historic Money Supply will add fuel for much greater gains than one can imagine and the Cyclical Model is still pointing higher. Everyone is different!

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. Are we watching the dominoes being put into place???

Improving Economy and Big Time Government Spending… Michael Douville

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

The Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) points to an Improving Economy. The Economy is recovering. How long will it be before Inflation and Higher Rates start in earnest? Inflation reduces purchasing power.

Rising rates will cause Bond Risk. Is it time to Refinance? Rising rates threaten Bond holders. Is it time to lock in loans?

Check out Michael’s assessment on the economy. Click on the video below.

The price of food is going up around the globe. Food prices have increased for the ninth consecutive month. The cost of eating is as high as it has been since 2014. Grain prices have shot up 25% in the last year.

Today, Congress approved a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan for the United States. President Biden plans on signing the bill into law on Friday, March 12, 2021. Direct payments to the people along with emergency unemployment payments are part of the plan. For those who are interested where the money is going, click on the link below.

Wait! President Biden is not finished. On Thursday night, March 11, 2021, the President is looking to do more with “The Next Phase”. Here comes a massive infrastructure plan. And after that, the Biden Administration is looking to rid the planet of cancer.

Crank up the printing press. More money! more money! more money!

And remember, Revelation 6 is promised. The Bible says hyperinflation is coming at some point in the future. Revelation 6 talks of a time when it will cost a day’s wage to eat. We are not there yet. But, the pace of food inflation is increasing.

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!”

The United States continues to print money at a record pace. China is tightening economic policy to strengthen their currency. Is inflation around the corner?

Just keeping an eye on the specter of hyperinflation. A hallmark of the beginning of the tribulation is hyperinflation as noted in Revelation 6 which leads to global famine. We should pay attention. Yes, this sounds over the top. It says what is says. At some point, this will happen. The question is when…

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!”

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.”

Everyone relax, the Federal Reserve has this under control…

The Best is Yet to Come. It looks like a huge year for the Economy as the liquidity begins to percolate throughout the mainstream economy. Q1 and Q2 look to be BLOCKBUSTERS!!!! However, Inflation may appear. Concerns about purchasing power will start to rise.

Is Inflation finally coming? Inflation has been benign for over a decade. There appears to be Inflation in the Basic materials that will percolate through the Economy. Residential Rentals can be a terrific Inflation hedge.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming: The Federal Reserve is changing course. Chairman Jerome Powell indicated the Federal Reserve is willing to allow for inflation to elevate above 2% for some time before raising interest rates. Translation, get used to low interest rates for awhile and the cost of basic goods is going up in price. Here comes inflation.

For those of you who are interested, click on the link below for the official speech and comment from the Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell.

Michael Douville is watching and he provides analysis of the situation. Michael has a warning. Beware! Stocks are decoupling from the Economy! Time to buy small rentals for CASH FLOW!!

The Divergence of the Stock Market from the Real Economy does not happen often. When it does, Investors need to take heed. It may be prudent to take profits and transfer Wealth to much more conservative and cash flowing rentals in one of the three great states: Florida, Texas, and ARIZONA.

Check out Michael’s comments below on YouTube.

One of the initial hallmarks of the end times scenario is hyperinflation. Is the Federal Reserve change in financial policy setting the stage for the scenario below?

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.

And the rich are not impacted, do not harm the oil and wine!

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.
