April 2023, Chicken Little Portfolio Performance

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is at almost exactly at the same level as a year ago, and also the same level as two years ago. The stock market resilience has Chicken Little thinking. Who is wrong? Me or the stock market? 

Dow at the same level for 2 years


March 2023, Chicken Little Portfolio Performance

Is there going to be a deflationary debt crisis in the US with high real interest rates? I believe so. The investments to own in a deflationary, and high real interest rate, environment are cash and short term t-bills. Crypto and gold can serve as insurance in situations where it becomes hard to obtain and use cash.

Q: What is worse than the Fed raising rates? A: the Fed loosing control of rates.  Financial Depression looms and the Government cannot prevent disaster.  Furthermore, financial pain will fuel public anger in unpredictable and dangerous ways

September 2022, Chicken Little Portfolio Performance

The Sky is Falling. All assets have lost considerable value so far in 2022. Chicken Little predicts more extreme losses. What is next after the plunge? The Fed will try cutting rates and restarting the printing presses. However, loose money leads to financial disaster. The Fed will end up even more disgraced than they are now.  

More Fed printing & problems ahead


August 2022, Chicken Litte Portfolio Performance

Chicken Little is focused on interest rates. Financial headlines highlight the recent rapid increase in rates. However, inflation-adjusted, real rates, remain firmly negative. That means real rates have to go higher, much higher. Higher real interest rates ahead mean almost all asset prices have further to fall (you ain't seen nothing yet).

Fed Chair Powell: Rates are going higher


Chicken Little gone insane?

Chicken Little has gone insane? I have shorted stocks again today.

Here are some recent trades, sell stocks at Dow 31,000, buy stocks at 33,500, sell stocks at 33,000. So losing money at every turn, selling low and buying high. 

Today, I sold stocks short again. I continue to believe that the end is coming soon (financially).
