When this fails because everyone responds by borrowing even more — thus making the total debt burden more rather than less onerous – most of what remains of the FIRE economy will die a noisy death. This will be a disaster if you work on Wall Street, rely on a public sector pension and/or own a bunch of bank stocks.

After rocketing higher mid-year, silver has spent most of the third quarter drifting sideways to lower. This has naturally weighed on sentiment, with investors and speculators alike growing more bearish during recent months. Yet silver remains way undervalued relative to its primary driver gold, so silver’s young bull market is far from over.

Certainly, any attempt to identify the most serious current financial scandal involves stiff competition and the need for objective measurement.

The Dow utilities and the Dow industrials both traded to new highs which means rather than leading the way up; they are propelling individuals to draw the wrong conclusion.
