Let’s talk about inflation.
There are two types of inflation in the world… the “inflation” that you and I experience in the form of a rising cost of living induced by Central Banks devaluing our currencies…
...and the inflation that Central Banks are “targeting” in the bizarre claim that somehow hitting said targets will unleash economic growth.
Inflation #1 is depicted in the chart below. This is the reason why everything "costs" more today than it used to.
Inflation #2 is some kind of nebulous concept that Central Bankers talk about without ever admitting that they themselves change how they define “inflation” to suit their political purposes.
Indeed, hearing a Central Banker talk about how we need to target inflation in light of the above chart is like hearing a raging drunk talk about targeting an appropriate level of drinking.
Jokes aside, inflation is a painful reality for the world. And the bad news is that it’s about to worsen dramatically.
Why does this matter?
Because the Bond Bubble trades based on inflation.
When inflation rises, so do bond yields to compensate.
When bond yields rise, bond prices FALL..
And when bond prices fall, the Everything Bubble bursts.
The sovereign bond market is over $76 trillion in size. It's the "smart" money in the financial system. So when it starts to "speak" it's smart to listen.
With that in mind, take a look at the chart for the 10-Year US Treasury. We’ve already taken out the bull market begun in 2007. The single most important bond in the world is tracking lower just as housing prices did in 2006 before the housing bubble burst.
Put simply, BIG INFLATION is THE BIG MONEY trend today. And smart investors will use it to generate literal fortunes.
Imagine if you'd prepared your portfolio for a collapse in Tech Stocks in 2000... or a collapse in banks in 2008? Imagine just how much money you could have made with the right investments.
THAT is the kind of potential we have today. And if you're not already taking steps to prepare for this, it's time to get a move on.
