The unintended consequences of five years of QE are coming home to roost! In May or early June the stock market parabola will collapse…followed by a massive inflationary spike in commodity prices – particularly gold & silver – that will collapse the global economy.
So says “Toby Connor” (goldscents.blogspot.ca/) in edited excerpts from his original article* entitled The Great Inflation of 2014.

Connor goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
Over the next 3-4 months we are going to see the public pile into the stock market exactly like they did with tech stocks in 2000, and real estate in 2005.
NASDAQ to Test All-Time High
Make no mistake, this bull market will not be over until the NASDAQ tests it’s all time high above 5000.
Stealth Rally in Commodities Coming
Completing the final bubble phase in the stock market is the first component necessary for the Great Inflation. During this period commodities are going to start to rise in a stealth rally that everyone will ignore because they will be focused on the stock market. As can be seen in the chart below, the CRB has already broken out of its three-year downtrend.
Stock Market Crash Coming This Summer
…When the crash begins the inflation stored in stocks will flow into the commodity markets. This process will be exacerbated as Yellen reverses the taper and doubles down on QE to try and reflate the stock market bubble. This will be like throwing gasoline on a fire, and will drive commodity prices through the roof into the end of the year and probably the spring of 2015.
The Fed Will try to Reflate to No Avail
The Fed is going to make the exact same mistake they did during the last decade. Their easy monetary policy has produced a bubble in stocks just like it produced a bubble in real estate in 2005. When the bubble implodes the Fed will try to reflate. They won’t succeed in reflating the broken stock market parabola, but it will trigger an explosion in commodity prices. The rapid spike in commodity prices will collapse the global economy just like it did in 2008.
Precious Metals Will Rise the Most
Because the artificial and manipulated bear market of the last year has severely damaged the supply side of the market, I expect the gold and silver will be the largest beneficiaries during the Great Inflation of 2014.
By this time next year all of the Chinese/Russians/Indians, etc. who have been scooping up gold over the last year are going to look like geniuses.

The real value of the stock market is positively correlated, over time, with the amount of freight hauled by the nation’s trucks (in other words, the physical size of the economy has a lot to do with the real, inflation-adjusted value of the economy) and the latest numbers (see chart) strongly suggest that we are not in a stock market bubble.

There are several fundamental reasons to believe that this week’s stock market activity, where the S&P 500 has moved more than 4% above the 13-year trading range defined by the 2000 and 2007 highs, could mark the beginning of a long-term bull market and the end of the range-bound trading that has lasted for 13 years.

Are stocks in a bubble? While leverage has returned to the stock market driving up stock prices and aggregate demand in the process, margin debt is still shy of its all-time high as a percentage of GDP, so there is certainly some headroom for further rises. A look at the following 5 charts illustrate that contention quite clearly. Read More »
“A sluggish economy, political gridlock, tepid earnings, the European debt crisis, high gasoline prices…” I can’t really argue with Barron’s depiction of the current market environment yet, against all these seemingly negative conditions, the stock market keeps surging higher.

The Fed has manufactured a parabolic move in the stock market…which is much more aggressive (and thus even more unsustainable) than witnessed at either the 2000 or 2007 stock market tops. Parabolas always collapse – there are never any exceptions – so when the pin finds this bubble it’s going to take down not only our stock market, but unleash a destructive force on the global economy.

I am now breaking out this phrase because of the current state of the stock market.

It’s been an amazing run in the stock market but…I start to feel a bit uneasy about things when I see all news reported as good news, because it either means the economy is getting better or more QE is coming. The fact, though, is that the market is just driving higher on what looks like sheer optimism of continued QE and little else. You can see this optimism in two indicators you’ll recognize.
