Today, we are looking more deeply at how the Federal Reserve’s fake money — approximately US$8 trillion of it since 1999 — has fouled the economy and corrupted its major industries.
Global Market News, Updates and Analysis
The ASX doesn’t move in isolation. Frequently we see sell-offs in the US stock market lead to sell-offs on the ASX. We cover recent factors driving the performance of the ASX include things like Brexit, the Federal Reserve interest rates, and commodity prices. Here you can find our coverage of global markets, usually related back to the Australian stock market. We include snippets of world market news with analysis to paint the picture.
We also look at major movements in currency markets (forex) for clues about which way global markets are heading.
This includes the Aussie dollar in relation to major crosses such as the USD, the GBP, the JPY, and the CNY.
We discuss movements in bond markets as low interest rates force investors to search for yield.
Occasionally we will talk about emerging markets too, as trends here can tell us more about global growth.
So when we talk about global markets, whether that be the Chinese economy (which is increasingly debt laden), the US market or even the ailing Japanese and EU markets, we aim to cut through the typical narrative.
We are contrarian because investing with the herd often leads to poorer returns.
What’s the relationship between the ASX and global markets?
Sometimes action is sector specific.
For example, when the US tech sector gets pummelled Aussie tech stocks frequently also decline.
But broad-based moves, driven by trade war/deal developments, also sweep up ASX-listed stocks in their wake.

To make our point, we use informative charts and profiles of major companies.
We aim to dig beneath the surface and go behind the headlines that you will find in mainstream financial news outlets.
By following our coverage here, you can understand major trends in global markets as well as any warning signs (or opportunities for profit) we spot along the way.

In accepting the role as Fed Chair, Powell should have been forced to remove any potential conflict and liquidate his portfolio.
This whole crypto sh*t show is destined to come crashing down. From the ashes, a phoenix or three might rise.
Politics. Politics. Politics. Surprise, surprise…Congress has found a way to keep spending money it doesn’t have on investments we don’t need.
You see, SCN seems to be almost exclusively focused on excusing the violent criminals in our cities and blaming their actions on ‘ethnocentric ideas that fail to reflect the ethnically diverse reality.’
Yes, Dear Reader, them versus us…left versus right…Democrat versus Republican — it’s all a fraud. It diverts the masses, while the elite pick their pockets and kick their butts.
Here at the Diary, we see politics, like war, as just a way to force others to do what you want.
So…why the vaccine mandates? Salon explains it in their headine: ‘Trump fans are overdue for a lesson in consequences’.
