Trump Says It’s Time To Sell Stocks, Warns Of “Very Scary Scenarios” For Investors

It is hardly a secret that few things could help Trump’s presidential campaign as much as a stock market crash.
As we reported back in January, while Wall Street typically worries about how politics might affect the market, Presidential candidates worry about how the stock market might affect their political outcomes. The reason for this is that historically, the market performance in the three months leading up to a Presidential Election has displayed an uncanny ability to forecast who will win the White House… the incumbent party or the challenger. Since 1928, there have been 22 Presidential Elections. In 14 of them, the S&P 500 climbed during the three months preceding election day. The incumbent President or party won in 12 of those 14 instances. However, in 7 of the 8 elections where the S&P 500 fell over that three month period, the incumbent party lost.

Trump Urges His Supporters To Sell Stocks, Warns Of “Very Scary Scenarios” For Investors
Now that we are exactly three months away from the November 8 election, if Trump wants to really boost his electoral chances, a market crash right now be certainly most welcome by his campaign. Which may be why Trump today urged his supporters to get out of equities as “interest rates set by the Federal Reserve are inflating the stock market” and warned of “very scary scenarios” for investors.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong Here?

For 20 years the average EV/EBITDA multiple of the Russell 2000 oscillated around 11x…
Since Bernanke unleashed QE2 and showed the world that nothing else matters, the ultimate valuation metric has exploded to 21x – almost double the norm.

What could possibly go wrong here? Perhaps it is time to listen To Goldman Sachs, or Donald Trump?

In US Elections, Money Matters!

Simply put, in 40 years of US national elections – money talks, and bullshit (along with hope, change, trust, policy, and every other potential differentiator) walks…
As Statista details, so far, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has raised substantially more money than Donald Trump’s. But has cash ever really made a difference to U. S. election results down through the years? According to figures in Germany’s Handelsblatt newspaper (which have since been converted from euro to dollars), all of the election winners in recent years were also budget winners.

Is Twitter “Shadow-Banning” Donald Trump?

Twitter is provably censoring Donald Trump in order to prevent him raising money for his presidential campaign.
A tweet sent out by Trump yesterday to promote his #MillionDollarMatch donation drive does not appear on Trump’s profile page nor did it appear on the feed of anyone following him.
You can check for yourself. Here is the tweet sent out by Trump yesterday and here is his main profile page – which doesn’t show the tweet. The tweet has been buried as if it never existed.
This is yet another example of Twitter shadow banning – where people on a designated ‘blacklist’ have their tweets relegated on search results and hidden from users’ timelines, while leftist politicians and commentators on a ‘whitelist’ have their tweets promoted.

In this atmosphere, Donald Trump just went under the radar, to potentially shake things up with the banking cabal.

Michael Moore Explains Why Donald Trump Will Win In November – And It Actually Makes Perfect Sense

Michael Moore is a radical leftist that is trying to destroy everything that America once stood for, but for once he is making sense. In his recent article entitled ‘5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win’, he makes a compelling case for why Donald Trump could win the election in November. I can’t remember the last time I actually agreed with Michael Moore about something, but in this instance I do. The American people are very angry and very frustrated, and they want someone that is going to shake things up in Washington. Needless to say, that is not going to be Hillary Clinton. According to Real Clear Politics, Trump has won five of the last six major national polls, and top Democrats are starting to understand that they could actually lose to the New York billionaire.
As Michael Moore has pointed out, the key to the election may be the upper Midwest. That is why it may turn out to be very wise that Trump has picked a running mate from the region. Residents of the upper Midwest have watched NAFTA and other ‘free trade deals’ turn their formerly booming economy into an area now known as ‘the rust belt’. Now that there is a major presidential candidate that is openly speaking out against these ‘free trade deals’, they will finally have a real opportunity to let their voices be heard. The following is from the Michael Moore article that I mentioned above…
I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes – Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Four traditionally Democratic states – but each of them have elected a Republican governor since 2010 (only Pennsylvania has now finally elected a Democrat). In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million). Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio. Tied? How can the race be this close after everything Trump has said and done? Well maybe it’s because he’s said (correctly) that the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest.

Will the Gold Bull Market Resume After the Summer Correction?

Looking more Las Vegas casino than Oval Office, the stage Donald Trump delivered his nomination acceptance speech from Thursday was all gold, from the stairs to the podium, completely befitting of his showman-like style. Whether you support or oppose Trump, it’s time to face reality. This is really happening, and we should all brace ourselves for what will surely be one of America’s messiest, ugliest general election seasons.
Only time will tell which candidate will be triumphant in November, but in the meantime, one of the winners might very well be gold, which has traditionally attracted investors in times of political and economic uncertainty. In the United Kingdom, which voted one month ago to leave the European Union, gold dealers are seeing ‘unprecedented’ demand, especially from first-time buyers. Some investors are reportedly even converting 40 to 50 percent of their net worth into bullion, though that’s not advisable. (I always suggest a 10 percent weighting, diversified in physical gold and gold mining stocks.) In Japan, where government bond yields have fallen below zero and faith in Abenomics is flagging, gold sales are soaring.
It’s not unreasonable to expect the same here in the U. S. between now and November (and beyond).
Strong U. S. Dollar and Treasury Yields Weighing on Gold
More so than the upcoming election, gold prices are being driven by U. S. dollar action, interest rates and low-to-negative bond yields around the world. (Between $11 trillion and $13 trillion worth of global sovereign debt currently carries a negative yield.) Right now the yellow metal is in correction mode on a strengthening dollar and rising two-year and 10-year Treasury yields, both of which share an inverse relationship with gold.
It’s also worth mentioning that the summer months have historically been among the weakest. By contrast, some of the highest gold returns of the year have occurred in September, when the Love Trade heats up in India in anticipation of Diwali and the wedding season.
