Will She or Won't She and the Big Myth ...
by Larry Edelson

Dear ,

Larry Edelson

Tomorrow afternoon the entire world will know whether or not Janet Yellen will raise the official Fed Reserve Federal Funds interest rate for the first time since June 29, 2006 — a very long nine years ago.

And the first time it's made any kind of move on rates since it lowered its discount rate in February 2010.

I personally think Yellen should hold off. The U.S. economy is not strong enough, foreign economies, especially Europe, are in shambles, and the dollar is already soaring.

A rate rise now threatens to derail the U.S. economy, push Europe further underwater and send the dollar soaring, worsening global deflation.

Be that as it may, today I want to clarify something I believe is very important: The myth of higher interest rates. That rising interest rates are bad for the stock market, and that declining rates are good for stocks.

Most investors have heard this interest rate theory hundreds, if not thousands, of times.

If you're like any average investor, you've heard that theory literally hundreds, if not thousands, of times. Tune into any media show today, and I'm sure you'll hear it at least once, if not more.

Most stock brokers, and the majority of analysts and newsletter editors, espouse the same causal relationship between interest rates and stock prices.

But the fact of the matter, the plain truth, is that there is no "standard relationship" between interest rates and stock prices. Period.

Consider the period from March 2000 to October 2002, where the Federal Funds rate declined from 5.85% to 1.75%, and the Nasdaq plunged 78%.

Put simply, stocks and interest rates went down together! Exactly the opposite of what most would expect.

Or the period from March 2003 to October 2007, where the Federal Funds rate more than tripled and rose from 1.25% to 4.75% ... And the Dow exploded higher, launching from 7,992 to 13,930 — a 74% gain. Stocks and interest rates went higher together!

The fact is that the relationship between interest rates and stock prices varies considerably depending upon a host of factors, including the value of the dollar, inflation and where the economy is in terms of the economic cycle.

The same myth applies to interest rates and gold: Higher interest rates, most pundits claim, is bad for gold.

But that is almost entirely wrong. Most strong bull markets in precious metals have occurred with rising interest rates, not declining rates.

New U.S. Currency Laws Now In Effect

Part 1 of a bold new financial law went into effect last year. The rest will roll out, piece by piece, through the end of 2018.

Few Americans have any clue about this, but hidden within H.R. Bill #2847 is a little-known provision known as "FATCA" (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act).

Like many problematic pieces of legislation, this one sounds innocent enough, but it has major repercussions. Learn more here...

There are numerous examples, the most vivid of which was the late 1970's bull market in gold and silver which occurred simultaneously to a massive rise in interest rates. Once rates peaked, so did gold and silver.

Now, to a few other items on my list for today. No matter what the Fed decides tomorrow:

First, the long-term trends for precious metals remain down. Neither gold, silver, platinum nor palladium has bottomed. That said, don't be surprised if you see a short-term rally.

Second, the long-term picture for the U.S. equity markets remains exceptionally bullish. That is, once the pullback that is still very much in progress is completed, probably in mid-October at much lower levels.

Third, the bull market in the U.S. dollar — and conversely, bear markets in most other currencies — remains intact.

Fourth, deflation in the commodity sector is not yet over. With the mere exception of natural gas, for every commodity I look at, my system models point still lower.

Fifth, is global unrest. Per my war models, global unrest is about to accelerate higher, yet again. Driven by the refugee crisis in Europe, by ISIS, by currency devaluations outside the U.S., by rising taxes and an increased hoarding of cash (dollar bullish by default).

Sixth, is the great sovereign-debt crisis that is about to explode onto the scene. The evidence is overwhelming now. From Trump's popularity, in the sense that he's an outsider vilifying career politicians, to Bernie Sanders proposing $18 trillion in new spending (where's the money to come from?) ...

To the refugee crisis, which will break the European Union's back ... to our own debt ceiling which will hit Oct. 1 ...

To the patently unpayable debts and IOUs of Europe, Japan and the U.S.

So beware, the waters are going to get rough ahead, increasingly rough. But they'll also be loaded with many opportunities.

Best wishes and stay safe,
