This Christmas, Wall Street is partying like it’s 1999

Retirement accounts are ending the year in better shape than we could possibly have expected. But stock prices and investor euphoria are now in dangerous territory. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m starting to hear echoes of another Christmas when a boom gave way to years of bitter disappointment.

Gold prices have increased with the amount of global net negative-yielding debt

Gold continued its strong June, closing the week higher (LBMA 0.8%, XAU 0.7%) for the sixth straight week. It was as high as $1,440 on Tuesday, but gave up some of its gains late in the week as Fed Chairman Powell made comments that a 50bps cut in July was ‘too much’.

Pandemic-stocks: Covid drove massive market gains — what happens next

How the pandemic drove massive stock market gains, and what happens next

US banks rack up $200bn in fines and penalties over 20 years

The six largest US banks are close to hitting a milestone $200bn paid out in fines and penalties globally since the turn of the century, according to a new tally by advocacy group Better Markets.

The stock market is rising higher and higher. There has never been a time in which so many investors have been putting money like this into the markets before. More tech stocks are becoming household names. Many unicorns are born every day. Billion dollar companies with excessive debt, SPAC deals, and IPO’s are absorbing the insatiable investor appetite.

Wake up to the suits and ties. They’re all lying to you. None are your friends. None wish to help you. Wolves in sheep clothing. More distractions than ever before. The magician always makes a spectacle to hide the trick.

What if the stimulus included more money for people. Is $1200 enough? $2000? Is this going to solve any deep rooted problems? What about the disgraceful 5600 pages filled with billions that have nothing to do with where people actually need help? #StimulusChecks #StimulusBill

We live in a fantasy land. More money flowing in than ever before, IPO frenzy, housing skyrocketing. Euphoria never end well. The higher it goes the worse it will be. Slow and steady growth is much safer. #money #investments #debt
