Current Outlook

"Tensions are increasing...."

While the Federal Reserve trys to walk a tight rope between interest rates and a rising federal deficit, gold and silver continue to set new highs.

Problems of military esculation on every front from the Mideast, Ukraine, and China and Latin America continue to face a weak and confused Biden Adminstration.

Fulll-time jobs continue to deteriorate while part-time and government jobs increase. A sign that U.S. manufacturing capability continues to decrease. Of course, the sale of U.S. Steel to the Japanese only confirms our inability to compete.

Was the Baltimore bridge collapse accidental? The threat of a terrorist attack against U.S. infrastructure can not be dismissed easily.

Moreover, the need to rebuild U.S. miliary stockpiles will take both time and money. Moreover, the woke military can not fill its enlistment quotas and the size of our Navy continues to shrink.

With the current stated federal debt about $33 trillion (about 100% of true GDP) and the GAAP federal debt over $200 trillion, the day of reckoning is just around the corner.

Economic data is revised and methodology changed to present a false picture for the public.

Major U.S. real estate companies are declaring bankruptcy as U.S. interest rates approach 6%. Both credit card and auto loans are looking at increasing delinquency rates.

The growth in credit card debt is greater than the growth in personal income as individuals try to maintain their standard of living.

Do not be surprised if the NASDAQ falls through 8,000, the SPX to 2,500 and the DJIA sees the 25,000 level.

Until the Biden Administration takes seriously the impact of open borders and a failed education system, the outlook is less than rosy.

Remember -- "Only purchasing power counts!"

Remember to ... "Keep It Safe, Simple and Stay Focused!" going forward.
