This is why the USD will continue to go down...no matter how many say it is a crowded short trade.
And, the USD has become the Yen in the carry trade.
AND, the gubernmunt wants to devalue the dollar in order to pay back the debt cheaper.
It's all part of the plan
Yeah, seems like all we have been seeing is hockey sticks this last year.
Hockey sticks everywhere.
While it's clear that the money supply has increased over time, the data should have been presented on a logarithmic scale - a linear graph makes it look like an increase from 1000 to 2000 is 1000 times worse than going from 1 to 2.
this is why you can't sell stocks yet
dollar down, gold up, stock market up.
i guess and oil up.
sell bonds for the long term?
i'll wait until gold goes under 990 before getting all short happy on the market.
until then, the dollar is dead.
Can someone convert this to a log chart and post?
The monetary base is not the money supply
Indeed... Wouldn't it make more sense to look at the M3 + credit?
I'd like to see that chart now.
Not a big fan of M3 as it has stuff like large denomination time deposits, those are simply bank bonds disguised as deposits. If bank bonds were to be counted(and I cant find a reason for that) as money supply be quite a bit higher
Credit, I'm not sure about that, when someone gets a loan they get M1 or M2 to buy whatever they want to buy, so it would be double counting
