2018’s Number One Risk

To find the market’s biggest weakness, a good place to look is at the most crowded movie theater with the smallest exit.
European bonds.
***
You’ve probably seen the charts of European high yield floating around, so I won’t reproduce it here. Yields in the low 2s for BB credits. There was also a European corporate issuer that managed to issue BBB bonds at negative yields a few weeks ago. I think that might have been the top.
No shortage of stupid things these days:
Bitcoin Litecoin Pizzacoin Canadian real estate Swedish real estate Australian real estate FANG Venture capital But European bonds are potentially the stupidest. Maybe even stupider than bitcoin!
Although there is nothing stupid about it – the ECB has been buying every bond in sight, and there’s lots of money to be made frontrunning central banks.

ISIS Coin: ‘Islamic State’ Steal Gaddafi’s Plan to Mint a Gold Dinar

21st Century Wire says…
ISIS maniacs are eying plans to mint their own ‘ISIS dinar’, but these will not be virtual cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or LiteCoin, they want to make a symbolic challenge to ‘American infidels’ by coining their new money in gold silver and copper.
In a statement issued from the ISIS press office, this move will deliver a blow to ‘the tyrant’s financial system’, and will include seven coins – two gold, three silver and two copper.
The new Islamic State coins will also be, ‘purely dedicated to God’, and according to its creators – designed to liberate Muslims (those who survive the purge anyway) from the ‘global economic system that is based on satanic usury’.

Cryptocoins News explains the monetary and symbolic roots of the Islamic Dinar:
‘The gold dinar is an early Islamic coin that corresponds to and is derived from the denarius auri of the Byzantine era. The gold dinar was in use during a caliphate that was known as the Umayyad. The Umayyad caliphate lasted close to a century. The coin was minted to a carefully controlled standard of 4.25 grams.’
Critics point out that ISIS/ISIL would require access to the huge quantities of gold and silver to keep their new mint going. They would also require a secure location for minting and distributing their new money, which does not appear to be the case presently (depending on how desperate the CIA are to roll out the new currency, the New York Federal Reserve Bank might be an option).
