Lynette Zang: Central Bank Balance Sheet Games

ITM Trading, Released on 2/16/18

We are told that the economy is strong. With global stock markets near all-time highs and real estate prices near or better than 2006, many people believe this is true. Happy days are here again!

No one really knows what specifically caused the recent market sell-off. Some say it was the whiff of higher inflation caused by the highest wage increase since 2009. Is it possible that the recent market rout was a central bank experiment? After all, none of the standard flight to safety assets performed as they normally would. And this would be a good time to set one up with all that repatriated money coming back to support the markets.

The smartest guys in room on money are buying physical gold, don’t you think you should too?

Lynette Zang has held the position of Chief Market Analyst at ITM Trading since 2002. Ms. Zang has been in the markets on some level since 1964. Her mission is to convert financial noise into understandable language. She has been a banker, a stock broker and studied world currencies since 1987. She believes strongly that we need to be as independent as possible and at the same time, we need to come together in community in order to survive and thrive through the hyperinflation she sees in the near future.

      Here is the latest chart published by the St. Louis Fed showing the total holdings of U.S. Treasuries by the Federal Reserve:


      You can see that in late October/early November of 2017 the Fed did actually begin SLOWLY winding down its holdings of Treasuries. Their holdings have continued to drop every month since that time. Perhaps you could monitor this chart and let us all know if anything changes down the road.
