Signs of Panic!

Deutsche Bank

Published 10-01-16
25 Minute Video

John Rubino and Gordon T Long discuss the unfolding mayhem in the European banking sector and specifically what is behind the panic selling in Deutsche Bank stock.


Deutsche Bank - .... then all of a sudden!

Gordon T Long outlines:

"We have seen this coming for some time and is why in the spring we issued a feature report entitled "Is Deutsche Bank EU's (Lehman + Bear Stearns + Enron)**2? " We were pointing out that the Leverage at Lehman Bros, the Bond Portfolio's at Bear Stearns and the Derivatives at Enron which brought these corporations down, pales in comparison to Deutsche bank which sits on all three of these potential Tipping Points which can cause lost investor confidence and a bank run.

John Rubino says:

"We can stop watching the Italian Banks and start watching the German Banks. Counter-Intuitively the most rock solid banks, in the most rock solid country in Europe have become the biggest systemic risk in the global economy! Part of the reason is the German Banks have been doing in effect something called "Vendor Financing"!

"GERMANY IS ON THE HOOK FOR ITALY, SPAIN / PORTUGAL AND GREECE. WHICH MEANS THE PERIPHERAL COUNTRIES IN THE EUROZONE WHICH CAN'T FUNCTION AS CURRENTLY CONFIGURED ARE A MAJOR RISK FOR DEUTSCHE BANK".... It is becoming increasingly evident the peripherals can't pay back their debts!

People are beginning to understand that the pillars of all this debt may soon blow up!

What is looking like another European banking crisis could quickly become a currency crisis as it is likely to impair the Euro. This is even a bigger global issue as it would likely spill over into the bond market.


IMF Warning: "Central Banks Losing the Deflation Fight"

Since the derivatives book of Deutsche Bank is bigger than the entire Eurozone economy it additionally means that deflationary pressures are going to cause major disruptions at some point when the underlying loans begin to default and debt rollover gets harder to secure.

IMF warns central banks could lose deflation fight

"It is clear what they do next, proposals are now coming out of the woodwork from the easy money, Keynesian side of the spectrum which involves massive increases in money creation and government fiscal spending."


Why are Food Prices Suddenly Falling?

Grocery prices have fallen for nine straight months and might possibly be a canary in the coal mine.

"Ultra easy money and ultra aggressive fiscal policy hasn't worked and given us a 'rip roaring" inflationary boom that Keynesian economists say you should get from negative interest rates and trillion dollar per year government deficits. So if it hasn't worked yet and were already seeing growing pockets rollover into deflation than threat is catastrophic for an over leveraged society!"

When you owe huge amounts of money you want your currency to go down in value so you can pay off your debts in a less valuable currency. That is what the world's policy makers want.


Prices Are Plunging - Bloomberg

What is Happening is We are Creating Conditions Whereby We are in a Trap We Can Never Get Out if Inflation Fails to Materialize. Debt Will Become too Large and Expensive to Roll Over if We Fall into a Deflationary Environment"

... there is much, much more in this 25 minute video discussion.
