    “Investing is a business where you can look very silly for a long period of time before you are proven right.”
    ~ Bill Ackman

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    Technical analysis is very difficult to do well. Rambus of Rambus Chartology is special: his charting and analysis offer deep insight into the financial and commodities markets. Under his tutelage, financial  complexity organizes into important, actionable insight.

    Three indicators are of great importance to me in all aspects of what I do. I regularly check in with Rambus for his analysis. For this week’s Solari Report, Rambus has agreed to do a written interview rich with charts on:

    • Gold
    • The US $
    • The S&P 500

    Results, of course, speak for themselves. Rambus has produced some big ones. Among his most memorable was calling the downturn in precious metals prices in 2011. Like yours truly, he also experienced the wrath of the goldbugs as a result. We will talk about that and more.

    Rambus shuns publicity, so he has agreed to a written interview. We will publish it for subscribers and I will discuss it for the audio portion of our report.

    The latest Economist has announced that dollar supremacy is unsustainable, while the signs of declining American power are growing. I am glad we will have an opportunity to have this discussion.

    I will also cover the latest market events and geopolitics in Money & Markets. Make sure to post or e-mail your questions for Ask Catherine.

    I hope you’ll join us on the Solari Report this Thursday. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can learn more about becoming one here.

    Virtual Tour of COP21

    [CAF Note: This is what the Pope’s lobbying was designed to support as he flew around in private planes supported by armies of PR agents, uninspired to reduce his own carbon emissions]

    The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21 or CMP11 will be held in Paris, from November 30 to December 11. It will be the 21st yearly session of the Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. Leadership of the negotiations is yet to be determined.

    As Russia bombs and Iran plots, the U.S. role is shrinking—and the region’s major players are looking for new ways to advance their own interests

    Despised by some, admired by others, the U.S. has been the Middle East’s principal power for decades, providing its allies with guidance and protection.

    Now, however, with Russia and Iran thrusting themselves boldly into the region’s affairs, that special role seems to be melting away. As seasoned politicians and diplomats survey the mayhem, they struggle to recall a moment when America counted for so little in the Middle East—and when it was held in such contempt, by friend and foe alike.

    Edinburgh Larder

    Catherine will be in Edinburgh on Sunday, October 25, 2015

    Thank you to the wonderful British subscriber who e-mailed and said, “are you going to have lunch in the UK?” He says he is coming, so there will be at least two. Catherine will be having brunch at The Edinburgh Larder Licensed Cafe and you’re invited to join!

    The Edinburgh Larder Licensed Cafe
    15 Blackfriars Street
    Edinburgh, EH1 1NB.
    0131 556 6922

    Brunch will be “on your own” and for your convenience the restaurant accepts cash, Visa and Discover.

    The menu has a range of healthy options such as homemade granola, porridge cooked to order with a selection of toppings, or wedges of toast with homemade jam. You can also set yourself up with something heartier including a full breakfast, scrambled eggs with salmon, bacon or sausage and lots of other tasty treats.


    Examining Financial Numbers

    “One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute.”
    ~ William Feather

    This week on the Solari Report, I will examine equity markets year-to-date. This report will feature detailed performance charts and sector comparisons.

    The equity markets in Q3 proved, yet again, that bull markets do not go up in a straight line. The US market – which has experienced significant gains since 2011 – finally entered the correction zone with the S&P 500 down -6.7% year-to-date. This was not a big swing from the high as the S&P was up 3.4% in Q2.

    The large corrections came in Europe and Asia. The German DAX was up 26% for the year in Q2 and then took a swan dive, closing Q3 down -1.5%. The deepest correction came in China with the China Large Cap ETF (FXI) up 28% in April, closing Q3 down -13%.

    In my Q2 Equities Overview, I addressed the subject of portfolio risk management. This week (and in our upcoming 3rd Quarter Wrap Up) I will focus on the Chinese stock market. The Chinese equity markets, reestablished after a 40 year hiatus in 1990, have grown in 25 years to a market capitalization of $7 trillion USD (or $10 trillion if you include the Hong Kong exchange) – approximately 10% of global equity market capitalization.

    As always, I will be addressing  questions from subscribers in Ask Catherine. If you’re a subscriber, you can post your questions at the bottom of this page after logging in.

    In Let’s Go to The Movies I will discuss David Versus Monsanto, a documentary exploring Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser’s battle with the corporate giant, Monsanto. The recent ban on GMO’s by Scotland, Germany, France and other European countries is a major setback to the US plan to assert control of the global agricultural market. That has implications for both financial markets and the US dollar as reserve currency.

    Please join me for the Solari Report’s Q3 Equity Overview this Thursday. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can learn more about becoming one here.

    The world is facing some huge problems. There’s a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.
