First quarter (Q1) earnings officially kick off this Friday as big banks begin reporting. I start today’s show with a scary stat on consumers… and how it could impact earnings results going forward.
I used to make fun of people who said the U.S. dollar would lose its status as world reserve currency… And I can’t believe I’m saying this—but I’m joining their ranks…
I break down how China is leading the push for a new digital world reserve currency… some shocking statements from French President Emmanuel Macron… why I’m worried about the long-term power of the U.S. dollar… and how to prepare your portfolio for the fallout.
On tomorrow’s WSU Premium, Daniel and I will dive into the details of this game-changing trend… and share two alternatives to the U.S. dollar that are set to soar amid the global financial revolution.
- An alarming stat about consumers [0:30]
- I’m worried about the U.S. dollar [02:00]
- China’s leading the charge for a global digital currency [05:30]
- Macron and Biden’s fighting words [07:40]
- These 2 assets will soar as global finance evolves [19:40]
Wall Street Unplugged | 1027
The global revolt against the U.S. dollar
What’s going out there? It’s April 12.
nothing Chris Justice right the headlines and Say what’s really moving these markets.
So we have earnings season which is about to start sweet.
Thanks and Reporting should be fun.
Tell everyone that we’re getting bigger and bigger and bigger and we love this.
We’re really really too big to fail.
They’re all gonna report starting this week.
Don’t inflation report out later today.
Everyone on TV talk about if earnings gonna be weak since estimates have come down dramatically.
So what you’re gonna see is companies beating estimates have been revised probably about 10 15% lower.
Screen should see wow learning season was great, even though in videos earnings fell 20% year over year, but it was great it beat the estimates.
Until you’re gonna hear about the macro backdrop the strong.
Is it okay yet? We have six ton of families are living paycheck to paycheck according to latest CNBC poll.
Mark with the IMF just cut.
It’s Global GDP forecasters weakest level in 30 years.
An environment where stocks are crazy expensive especially relatively interest rates.
And we’re demand is falling off a cliff.
If you own stocks you have a 401k.
All the s***.
I just mentioned.
Means absolutely nothing and meaningless next to what I’m about to tell you.
now if you’ve been paying attention to China Who’s getting this Coalition a country’s? To reduce its Reliance on the US dollar.
I used to think this is a big joke.
I used to make fun of Doug Casey’s a friend of mine is hey Doug.
I just saw your presentation last week.
I mean it was the same one from 1979 if you telling us that the US Dollars gonna lose his reserve currency status and Doug will be like, you know, what Frank F you and I’ll play Texas Hold’em with him, which is a very good Texas Hold’em player, but even with The bill bonders of the world which a lot of you follow from Gora.
To the Rick rules.
I never believed in that.
I was like no way it’s never gonna happen.
But as you know me being independent, I don’t really care about anything under the other data, right so data that drives you.
It can’t be personal.
You can’t have this agenda.
That’s why I always hated these people had this agenda no matter what the marketing conditions were.
Markets gonna crash inflation is gonna happen from 2010 to 2019.
We’ve heard that same story.
Yet if you have interest rates at zero and you’re flooding the market with cash constantly buying bonds to the FED that has unlimited printing press just keep it on 24 hours a day every day of the year.
You have no choice if you look at the data you had to own assets anything any kind of asset.
Whether it was Art Collectibles the stock market housing.
Look at those patterns of all those people told you to buy gold and gold was one of the ones that didn’t do well because it’s not really an asset tied to The government spending.
It’s an asset.
That’s kind of conservative that you’re like, oh, you know, let me buy it’s a store of value where there’s no reason to even look at gold when everything else in the shittiest idea is going up 300% In a matter of a year or two.
Okay, so make fun of these people.
Now I’m not making fun of them anymore because the data has changed.
When China executes its first LNG trade using the one inside of the dollar you have to take notice.
That is in China currently discussions about accepting the want instead of the dollar for oil trade first time since the early 70s when Nixon took us off the gold standard you have to pay attention.
So now what we have we have the Brick Nations bricks says for Brazil, Russia, India China and throw in South Africa many people think it’s bricks what an apostrophe experts actually breaks the S stands for something interesting South Africa.
They’re working together to create a universal digital currency to reduce their Reliance on the dollar.
It sounds like fantasy s***.
Right? No wait, it’s never gonna happen again.
I’ve been saying this many many years, but listen up, Just listen to the facts.
So you have state Duma Deputy chairman? That’s basically with speaker the house from Russia.
This is what he said.
I’m quoting here just the other day.
The transition to settlements in a national currency to the first step.
The next one is to provide the circulation of digital any other form of fundamentally new currency in the nearest Future and at the coming bricks Summit which being held in August, by the way.
Is the Readiness to realize this project will be announced such works are underway.
He then said this new digital currency could be secured not just by gold but also by other groups of products like Rare Earth animals or soil.
This is really happening right now.
We never had.
Presence of Nations come out on public stages and say this.
Yeah, you could say whatever you want behind scenes and stuff like that not when you have the Summits at meetings with the flags from each country and you’re saying this on a national stage.
And by the way, you’re not gonna fund a lot of this s*** on Google they suppressed it.
Go to Twitter.
You might find a few things on Google not all this stuff, you know, and on YouTube, you’re not gonna find a lot of it.
You should see here.
See what they’re saying.
at these conferences But now which surprise we have friends joining the party France.
President macron just visit China two days ago announce that Europe needs to rely Less on the US dollar we’re talking about France.
Who’s like the LA Clippers? They want to be a big player in town.
But no matter how much noise they make they’ll never be the Lakers.
Hello, Francie, and he just want to be major player in Europe.
But nobody really pays attention to France.
You know, you don’t say oh friends and you know, UK, Germany.
Well pay attention to friends.
Because president macron said on stage with President tree.
This is a couple of days ago.
Cody Europe must resist pressure to become America’s followers.
You’ll say you want to build a third superpower in Europe, which will be led by himself, of course, and that Europe should reduce.
It’s dependence on the US dollar France Europe.
This is where I wish Donald Trump was still president.
Because Trump would call macron the second he heard that and said hey buddy, just a reminder.
We are the largest foreign investor.
We have a 4500 businesses in France supporting 500,000 jobs, which help support your economy.
Unless you want us to shut off the LNG Supply and make your economy crash.
Keep your fm out shut about the US dollar and this fantasy third superpowered nonsense.
So we have Biden probably thinks Francis type of butterfly right now.
But no seriousness.
Under Biden France.
I’ll say it.
I’m sorry gonna curse f****** hates us.
So in 2021 Biden announced a newly formed Alliance is what Australia in the UK that gives these nations access to US nuclear subs.
Sounds pretty cool.
Well right after that deal was struck Australia turn around and gave the figure to France and cancel the 66 billion dollar contract to purchase 12 diesel powered submarines.
They went out there France before they made it very very clear how pissed off they were to the public Biden like apologize and said we could handle a little bit better, but then by then turns around.
Everybody’s the inflation reduction act which authorizes 370 billion.
That’s a package of green subsidies to be allocated to construction with turbines solar panels microprocesses electric vehicles in the US but more specifically within this plan includes a 7500 tax credit for buys of EVS manufactured in the US that also have US manufactured batteries.
So you cut out all of Europe.
In the EV for this for this trip because they can’t compete with price.
Kind of like what China does when they dump Steel on the market or would they do it where else birth elements? When you cut a lot of that stuff off is there’s a big reason why steel companies are doing much much better when you’re not dumping cheap free steel to the market.
So this hurts France Germany almost all European companies that are trying to compete an EV race.
Which why? Macron is doing what he’s parting going to strip clubs of President XI playing nights with China and also playing nice with Russia.
I mean, they’re not even providing a budget or anything.
They don’t provide any data of any weapons that they’re helping or providing Ukraine because they’re not anymore.
And the US has taken notice.
They’re like, you know, what F this I mean at France you have to partner with someone and you’re getting screwed every which way you just like gonna partner with the one that’s gonna work out the best for you.
And right now the terms are so much better.
With China and Russia, then they are with the US.
But what do you have you have China pulling all the strings? Yes, we’re talking that China when nobody in the US allowed to say anything bad about China in public anymore.
despite creating covid which killed close to seven million people worldwide including 1.
1 million Americans can’t say anything bad about them.
Nope wasn’t in Wuhan suppressed that absolutely not didn’t start in wuan.
They didn’t lie what you know, who cares the Common Sense part of it where who and all these scientists and doctors wanted to go into who want to see what was going on and trying to say, nope.
You can’t you can’t come in.
With the Hope magically said without even going into China that wow, China handled this so great.
And so fantastic Trump decides cut the funding to who when everybody got pissed off.
And why the who said that? Here’s a child responsibility massive amounts of people hundreds of thousands of Americans.
It’s 2021 due to Fentanyl.
Even after we tipped off China’s government.
to Chinese Fentanyl traffickers What do they do? Nothing? They never took action read it is according to Brookings report from last year.
Hey, we’re letting you know where these people are go get them.
Okay, and they do nothing.
That fentanyl comes here.
And yes that China which are wonderful politicians.
Love so much.
Because they’re all in bed with them.
and man go down that rabbit hole.
Don’t use Google and go down that rabbit hole.
I’ll talk a Republicans.
Democrats, why do you think that every single problem is blamed on Russia? collusion Biden’s laptop, no matter what it is.
It’s always gonna be blame on Russia because we don’t really deal with Russia.
We have no ties to Russia.
They’re not a big trading part China.
You want to talk about demise of trump? Who’s when he really started? raising tariffs On China, that’s when it was like holy s***.
We got a good I mean the amount of money that’s what’s wrong with the democratic system.
If you want to find everything wrong, it’s the greatest system on Earth.
It’s easily corruptible.
There’s so many parties.
It’s like this that the college admissions Scandal, right? So hard to get into these colleges but yet when you’re paying like 35 Grand to the to the guy who coaches tennis and some guy wants to write him a check for 150 Grand to have his write a scholarship for their daughter.
It’s a car easily corruptible program.
That blow up in a lot of famous people’s and hedge funds faces.
But it’s easy very easily corruptible because you have so many people so many moving Parts.
It’s all about money.
It’s all about power.
But this is the China.
Who’s doing all of this? Because now what do we have? We have this growing hatred of the US and man.
Is it growing? Where Brazil Russia India China South Africa, that’s a bricks, but also also Saudi Arabia Argentina Iran, Indonesia.
Turkey Egypt All expressing interest in joining Alliance to have their own digital currency to compete.
Against the US dollar and not only individual.
Like they’re Alliance to have it.
Which is pretty smart.
And don’t forget Malaysia.
You see that news that came out last week discussing with China to create an Asian fund between nations to help reduce Reliance on the US dollar.
This is all new stories from the past couple of months.
When are we ever seen this we’ve seen here and there and someone talking s*** or whatever.
We don’t see them on public forums at Summits like this.
Yelling wanting us to hear this.
Even Singapore discuss a topic last month reducing its need for the US Dollars.
It gets stronger.
It’s hard to compete Singapore where everyone speaks English.
This was love is the most.
I’ve been to Singapore.
I don’t think anyone speaks out of the language other than American English, whatever it’s crazy.
What a beautiful place by the way.
Now why am I bringing this up? What does this mean? Why is it such a big deal to you? It means earnings inflation the Fed.
These are big problems temporary nature or cyclical.
I’ve argued with this cycle.
It’s probably going to last a few years instead of a month which were used to when we have a downturn over the past 11 years because you had the FED there to back us up.
You have covid trillions comes into the market.
We have one bad month.
Everything goes back to normal and then we search everything’s fine.
What was it nine months 10 months, maybe during the credit crisis.
We will find we’re okay.
Wasn’t like the comment or that three years it you know for now that you don’t have the FED there.
It’s gonna take longer Laura.
So those are cyclical in nature.
Right weak demand High rates recession low GDP cyclical cyclical cyclical and waited out.
that you now these problems look like little tiny Pebbles.
On the side of a massive volcano that’s about to erupt.
That’s what’s going on right now.
And I’m not as Fairmont where you know, you’ve listened to me for what you know, I’m an old crazy bastard now.
I am 50 years old man.
I’m old you shouting like this.
Stuff they have to be worried about but man.
announcement after announcement joining alliances all these countries Before your portfolio it means that you should have solid allocations to certain sectors and there’s three super important sectors.
I should account for about 12 to 15% of your portfolio.
Damn, I gonna talk about these in detail and Wall Street and public premium tomorrow.
But if you listen to some of these stories, you’re probably not familiar with them.
Maybe one two here there.
Again, this this has not been mentioned like publicly and freely by these other countries that major events conferences State dinners.
You know what we’re so many countries just outright hate the us right now.
It wasn’t a big deal.
When you look at all.
You know, we have problems with Russia.
We have problems with China or parts of Europe, you know alone they can’t do much about it.
But together along with adding the brick Nation even all the Brick Nations.
Hey, holy cow.
That’s a serious threat.
She pay attention to it.
Yeah, it’s just one of the main topics will be discussing.
On Wall Street and Club Premium covering lots of stories.
Which sounds insane? I mean, it does sound as anyone I say it right the US dollar could lose its Reserve currency status.
It’s not gonna happen right away.
The fact that these initiatives are taking place.
And you have to stand up.
And take notice.
And just do to research yourself start looking at it.
So you look what? brentwoods right, New Hampshire Only three week meeting that was in 1944.
That’s when a US dollar became the official Reserve currency right after World War Two right 44 countries are there gold was a basis for the US dollar other currencies were official thanks to it.
You know, everybody remembers that 1944 people remembers became fully functional to 1958.
That’s a long time.
Let’s say this is gonna happen quickly.
But the fact that it’s starting is seriously and there’s lots of money to be made and lost.
If you pay attention.
Can I expect to happen anytime soon? But this should.
really scare you and this is serious stuff right here.
Because it’s insane as it sounds the US dollar loser Reserve currency style.
Yeah, I always thought so I thought it sounded crazy.
Until we decided to spend trillions post covid.
Get to every asset class return to new all-time highs.
Until you research history where every 80 to 100 years is pattern of a new Global Currency emergence get a Great Britain Portugal Spain Netherlands.
Now the US The reason why she is actually saying that every 800 years he just recently said that that’s why we have to reduce our alliances time for change.
I mean so you see how much gold Russia and China have been buying over the past couple years do your research look at the charts? Why would they be doing this for? And all the s*** sounds great.
It’s easy to skyrocketing volume of the ruble one Trading.
It’s trading value to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Look at the volume and transactions verbal War trading Bots insane.
Sounds crazy until you see for the first time ever dozens of major countries developed Nations talking publicly in a coordinated effort in a coordinated effort.
All the same time to wean himself all the US dollar by starting a universal digital currency.
Yes idea sounds crazy until you have the US government shutting down things like crypto out of nowhere.
Why what was the threat? Thanks for embracing it why? Why you shutting off banks that had nothing to do with fraud they were doing the right thing? Why you close our bank? Why why? Are you doing everything in your power to keep the dollar strong? Interesting.
Do you see this threat coming as well? How do you keep it strong raising rates, which will attract more foreign capital? Almost every other country has stopped tightening.
Have you noticed that? It sounds crazy.
Until you see the two biggest alternatives to the US dollar which are Bitcoin and Gold Have you seen where they are right now? Gold all-time high just off of it.
Bitcoin was 15,000 recently.
It just broke 30,000.
Why do you think that’s happening right now? Because I could tell you something that’s a lot of freaking coincidences.
This isn’t just one or two things.
Like I know freaking way down.
I mean those effects I’m telling you about.
And I know this diehards and people being frank you crazy.
It’s nuts again.
I’m not someone that that says s*** like this lightly.
But you’re seeing this change when you see politicians spending trillions with total disregard of anything.
They don’t care where there’s no consequences for their action at all.
They’ll get reelected.
No matter what no matter how many places they destroy people are still going to vote Democrat.
No matter how much the Republicans mess up in certain areas this still gonna vote Republicans.
There’s no change.
There’s no change here.
And more importantly you could do whatever you want get chronological go on under oath testimony.
And get caught completely.
And there’s still no consequences for your action.
What do you think’s gonna happen? It’s gonna entice everyone who’s not messing around f****** around.
To start doing things because they’re seeing everyone else benefit.
See some kid rob a store for and gets a new TV and then you’re like wow that’s messed up and then all the other friends do it and everybody else does it doesn’t does it.
You know what you’re gonna feel like an idiot.
You know, you’re gonna do you’re gonna try to rob a store and grab a TV because everybody else has got it for free you’re promoting this you’re promoting spending you’re promoting just unbelievable amounts of debt.
I mean trillions guys trillions.
Would it take 200 years to suspend one trillion? We’re spending trillions.
Or a few months now.
The debt ceiling.
At the politicians were smart, they’d sign a deal right now.
They don’t want to see a week ago, which you’re going to see if they don’t sign a deal.
But their egos are so inflated and they’re gonna fight for all this b*******.
For their communities for themselves or whatever that they better start looking at the bigger picture.
Because dollar weakens, that’s not a good thing.
You want to keep the dollar strong? But I tell you.
the coalition the unity among so many countries the coordinated effort Pay attention it’s gonna influence a lot of sectors.
And I’m not talking about sectors at all while I own this stock or that stock.
I’m talking about sectors.
I’m talking about gold not going to 3,000 but 15,000.
Bitcoin going to 100,000 massive massive moves at this really develops the way I think it is and it looks that way.
And a US is just fallen asleep at the wheel.
I’m sure I’m gonna get a ton of emails about this.
