Central planners are really hoping no one notices that their manipulation of the markets isn’t working. In spite of a rate cut, the DOW dropped 700 points.
The Federal Reserve’s “surprise”(it’s a surprise to the mainstream media and those who aren’t paying close attention) interest rate cut did nothing to stop the market from plunging. If you’ve been paying attention, you know that Donald Trump has been all but demanding zero or negative interest rates (which would wipe out your savings) to keep the economy in tip-top shape.
The Federal Reserve is cutting but must further ease and, most importantly, come into line with other countries/competitors. We are not playing on a level field. Not fair to USA. It is finally time for the Federal Reserve to LEAD. More easing and cutting!

But other analysts have argued that if you need rates that low, the economy is not really in good shape, to begin with; its manipulated to look that way.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 785.91 points lower, or nearly 3%, to 25,917.41; it rose more than 300 points earlier in the day. The 30-stock average gyrated between sharp gains and solid losses after the decision was announced. The S&P 500 fell 2.8% to 3,003.37 while the Nasdaq Composite pulled back 3% to 8,684.09.
Investors, in turn, loaded up on U.S. Treasurys, pushing the benchmark 10-year yield below 1% for the first time ever. Gold, meanwhile, jumped 2.9% to settle at $1,644.40 per ounce. –CNBC
The mainstream media has put all their faith and is asking you to do the same, in the central bankers. “It’s great that the Federal Reserve recognizes that there’s going to be a weakness, but it makes me feel, wow, the weakness must be much more than I thought,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street” right after the sudden cut. “I’m now nervous. I’m more nervous than I was before,” Cramer added.
Bank stocks were the ones that noticeably dropped dramatically. “The market is still trying to find its footing,” said Adam Crisafulli, founder of Vital Knowledge, in a note. “The panicked collapse of the last week isn’t something that will be quickly forgotten, and it will take a couple of weeks (at least) before stocks are on firmer ground.”
The rate cut was done to mitigate the economic impact of the rapidly spreading coronavirus. It’s become clear that some people are panicking while others are preparing.
To better understand how central bankers are manipulating the world we live in, read Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World. In this book, former Wall Street insider Nomi Prins shows how the 2007-2008 financial crisis turbo-boosted the influence of central bankers and triggered a massive shift in the world order.
Central banks and international institutions like the IMF have overstepped their traditional mandates by directing the flow of epic sums of fabricated money without any checks or balances. Meanwhile, the open door between private and central banking has ensured endless opportunities for market manipulation and asset bubbles – with government support.
Packed with tantalizing details about the elite players orchestrating the world economy – from Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi to Ben Bernanke and Christine Lagarde – Collusion takes the listener inside the most discreet conversations at exclusive retreats like Jackson Hole and Davos. A work of meticulous reporting and bracing analysis, Collusion will change the way we understand the new world of international finance.
