Profiting & Protecting from The Greatest Market Threats, Cartel Interventions, and Fake Economic News
This overview focuses on Profiting and Protecting in 2019 and 2020 and beyond. This period will be quite unlike the relatively quiescent period after the Great Crash of 2008-2009, and will provide Opportunities for Great Profits and The Threat of Great Losses for the unprepared. And what is coming Next is coming soon.
Our Forecasts and Buy Recommendations are based in part on our Analysis of the Great Markets Crash of 2008-2009 (Deepcaster had his subscribers in five leveraged short funds prior to that crash, all of which were liquidated profitably), and other Crashes before that, including the Internet Bubble Burst of 2002 which provide crucially important lessons which are mainly unlearned or forgotten today. [Greater detail for all the foregoing is provided in our book of the same title, second edition due out this Fall.]
We analyze those lessons learned and how to apply them going forward with the goal of helping Investors and Traders Profit and Protect Wealth.
Our forecasts and Buy Recommendations are not only based on Fundamentals and Technicals but also on Interventionals and Macro Analysis.
Another Key Element of our Analyses is showing how investors have been and are being misled by Fake Economic News and we provide sources of accurate information(see, e.g., below). We also demonstrate how Investment and Trading Decisions are often inadvertently wrongheaded due to repeated (and often Covert) Interventions in many Market Sectors by a Globalist Cartel (the “Deep State”, see Note 1) composed of The Private for-profit Fed-led Cartel of Central and “private” Mega-Bankers and complicit Governments, Political Establishments and more recently, The Deep State of Data Controllers, all operating together in coalition, sometimes loose, sometimes formal, according to their interests. There is convincing evidence of the existence and powerful actions of that Cartel—see, for example, gata.org.
Deepcaster is not alone in making such contentions. Consider the views of former U.S. Representative, Ron Paul, and noted Swiss Investments Advisor, von Greyerz:
“It’s a fallacy to believe the US has a free market economy. The economy is run by a conglomerate of individuals and special interests, in and out of government, including the Deep State, which controls central economic planning.
“Rigging the economy is required to prevent market forces from demanding a halt to the mistakes that planners continuously make. This deceptive policy can last only for a limited time. Ultimately, the market proves more powerful than government manipulation of economic events. The longer the process lasts, the greater the bubble that always bursts. The planners in charge have many tools to perpetuate confidence in an unstable system, but common sense should tell us that grave dangers lie ahead.
“Their policies strive to convince the unknowing that the dollar is strong and its status as the world’s reserve currency is secure, no matter how many new dollars they create of out of thin air. It is claimed that our foreign debt is always someone else’s fault and never related to our own monetary and economic mismanagement.”
“The Dollar Dilemma: Where to From Here?”, Ron Paul, Mises Institute, Auburn, Alabama, Friday, June 22, 2018 via GATA.org
And from von Greyerz:
“Brexit, Quitaly and Grexit. Debt Defaults, Stock Shocks, Bond Bubbles, Properties Popping, Derivative Defaults and Banks Busting.
“Well that is just some of the events that twill take place in the next few years.
“But the world is living in ignorant bliss of what is coming next.
“As the song tells us:
‘Don’t worry, be happy now
“Well this well-known song says it all. Risk in the world is growing exponentially but no one is worrying.
“Global debt out of control
“Global debt has trebled since 1999 from $80 trillion to $240+ trillion today. And since the Great Financial Crisis started in 2006, debts have doubled. But Don’t Worry be Happy!
“Stocks only rise due to money printing…
And von Greyerz correctly forecast (as did Deepcaster) why The Fed had to stop QT in January 2019.
“But wait, these mental central bankers are now stopping to print money and embarking on another programme with a name that no one understands – Quantitative Tightening – QT. For us normal people, it means that rather than printing more money, they will actually reduce their debt.
“For some obscure reason, these central bankers seem to forget that it is only their money printing that artificially has kept the illusion up that All is Well on the Western Front, and also on the Eastern front of money printers like Japan and China.
“Stock, bond and property markets are totally ignoring what the effect of QT will be. Bullish investors are totally in denial of the fact that markets have only appreciated because of the biggest money printing and credit expansion in history. Once this stops, so will the bonanza in investment markets.
“Worst crash in history coming
“And the ride down is likely to be the worst in history. In 1929 to 1932 the Dow lost 90%. The coming fall will most certainly exceed that, as we today have a global credit and asset bubble which is substantially bigger than in 1929. …
“… Investment markets have always been saved by central banks’ generous credit expansion. …
“What nobody understands is that THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT. Central bankers have run out of weapons to fight this phoney [sic] money war. …
“Central banks clearly understand that QE is not working. But do they understand the effect the coming massive liquidity squeeze will have on credit markets? Well, that is doubtful. It just isn’t possible to have an orderly wind down of the biggest credit bubble in history….
His reference to a liquidity squeeze was another “correct” forecast since, On April 28, 2019, Deep State Mega Bank, J. P. Morgan Chase, stated “We are fast approaching the point where banks run out of liquidity.” (zerohedge.com)
“As fear takes hold on markets and the global financial system, the flight to safety will start. The problem is that there will be few safe assets. Stocks and bonds will crash and so will property, as interest rates surge and lenders tighten. And paper money will decline rapidly in value as central banks print unlimited amounts. …
“So protect yourself when there is still time and then ‘Don’t worry, be happy!’”
“FOLLOW SWISS PENSION FUND …,” Egon von Greyerz,
Zurich, Switzerland via lemetropolecafe.com
Deepcaster has been warning for months about the coming Stagflation which may well worsen into the “Hyperinflationary Depression” of which von Greyerz warns.
Of course, the Deep State’s Mega-Bankers and Allies who see it coming, will (and already are attempting to) protect themselves along the way.
Excluded, of course, are the Citizenry, including “Retail” Investors, and Small and Medium Size Investment Entities, i.e., those not “heavyweight enough, or connected enough, to be participants in The Mega-Profits of The Cartel/Deep State.
And it is these citizens, Retail Investors and Traders and Small and Medium Size Investment Entities which Deepcaster aims to help Profit and Protect with this overview and the book and with his Letters and Alerts!
And note one other “Participant” in the Deep State, Globalist Mega-Bankers, complicit Governments, and Political Establishments have all been correctly identified as participants in The Globalist Deep State, but until very recently, The Deep State (member) of Data Controllers has not been widely identified, so we reprint excerpts of an excellent, recently published, description.
The Deep State of Data
“Part One: The few control the many.
“Regardless of your background, socioeconomic status, or political spectrum, everything you do, everything you say, and everything you think is being subtly shaped by a “Deep State.” But the shadow organization I’m talking about isn’t a past or present administration. This isn’t the Alt-Right or Globalist Left. There’s no FBI or NSA faction trying to control your mind. No, the Deep State I’m referring to is the cabal of tech giants and data miners overtly and surreptitiously controlling what you see, whom you connect with, what you read, click, and care about.
“Some, like Google, Facebook and Twitter are doing this out in the open. They believe the American public either doesn’t know, doesn’t care, or simply believes they don’t have a choice. Others, including Equifax and lesser known companies, shy away from the spotlight. Their offices may not be in Silicon Valley, but they’re minting profits from your information—whether you consent or not. They do this with the permission and support of our elected leaders (at least until they screw it up), through complex Terms of Service, and sheer will—not only assimilating our culture, but defining it….
“The Deep State of Data is a convenient and comprehensive public-private partnership that exchanges information for access—access to services and utilities, access to other information, and even entire communities.
“Meanwhile, your personal information generates endless amounts of digital gold for them. Take Facebook, for example. Every status update, like, and comment you’ve ever typed (even those you never published), every place you logged in from, every Messenger conversation and photograph, is paired with other “offline” data about you, then sold and exploited for any number of purposes. And that’s just one platform.
“Your Facebook activity, Google searches, clicks, views, and retweets form the currency with which the Deep State of Data trades. They endlessly mine, store, and sell this data, supplementing it with information gathered by way of personal tracking devices (smartphones, smartwatches, and smart speakers) to collect and analyze your calls, messages, movements, habits, and influences, further fueling algorithms engineered to psychologically manipulate you.
“Artificial intelligence is shaping what you think and how you think about it, telling you not only what to buy, but how often you need it, promoting specific agendas, feeding you fake news, and taking increasingly aggressive steps to garner even greater control. [Emphasis added. Ed.]
“This isn’t a near-future dystopian scenario. It’s happening right now. People in power are using massive amounts of data collection, obfuscated algorithms, and AI to control and manipulate the public in subtle and unpredictable ways, and no one is outside of their reach….
“The issue at hand is not one of bias, advertising, or even profiling, but control. Control over the how and the what, control over our personal information. It’s what many call “privacy” and though it’s quite easy to maintain in the real world (through intentional omission of information based on your social setting), protecting it in the digital world has become increasingly difficult—if not impossible.
“Mark Zuckerberg says “Users control their data” and that users “can leave anytime they want” but that is completely disingenuous. Look at the work involved to actually leave Facebook. And more concerning is “leaving Google” isn’t even an option. These are simple, bold, lies. The Deep State doesn’t want, or in Google’s case, doesn’t let us out. [Emphasis added. Ed.] Welcome to the Digital Hotel California.
“I’m not here to be defeatist however. There is a way out. We can take back control of our lives, our inputs, our safety, and our data—it all starts with one simple act: Owning our identity.”
And Deepcaster recommends, in addition to “Owning our Identity” (e.g., by Opting out of Permitting use of private data or, better yet, by refusing to use Facebook & Google [there are alternatives! e.g., duckduckgo.com for search]), a push for Antitrust Action to be instituted against these monopolies, and, since they use the publicly provided/funded internet that serious consideration be given to regulating them as Public Utilities.
But Deepcaster’s Analyses and recommendations go far beyond identifying, and indicating how to cope with the foregoing Miscreants and Fake Economic Markets, Political and Cultural “News” which they generate. Our goal is to help Investors and Traders Protect and Profit from what is coming. How?
While Deepcaster employs both Fundamental and Technical Analyses, it does not rely only on those two (e.g., at best, Technical Analyses provide only probabilities, not certainties) but also conducts Interventional Analysis—Interventions, usually disguised, into the Markets by the Cartel of Central Banks and complicit Governments and Financial Institutions.
As well, Deepcaster is also alert for the effects of present and, especially, prospective Macro factors, one subspecies of which are Black Swans, as identified by Nassim Taleb.
Accordingly, Deepcaster makes a variety of Key Recommendations based on all four in the concluding Chapter “Investing for Freedom, Profit and Wealth Protection.” (Subscribers for one year or longer NOW will be entitled to receive a PDF copy of the 2nd Edition of our book when published this Fall Free!)
In sum, Deepcaster addresses the aforementioned Topics, makes Forecasts and indicates how best to Profit and Protect in 2019, 2020 and beyond in the following chapters of our book.

We reiterate that it is especially important that Deepcaster shows Investors and Traders how our focus on Interventionals, Macro Factors and Accurate Data, as well as Fundamental and Technical Analyses, is essential to Profiting and Protecting going forward. (See. e.g., our Recent Profits Taken, below.)
Thus we offer Sector and Subsector Forecasts and Specific Asset Recommendations re what to Buy and Sell, and what to Avoid, all aimed at Profit and Protection going forward.

Note 1: We encourage those who doubt the scope and power of Overt and Covert Interventions by a Fed-led Cartel of Key Central Bankers and Favored Financial Institutions to read Deepcaster’s Report, “Surmounting Impending Unavoidable Market Sectors Disasters for Profit and Protection” on the ‘Two Free Reports’ page at www.deepcaster.com. Also consider the substantial evidence collected by the Gold AntiTrust Action Committee at www.gata.org, including testimony before the CFTC, for information on precious metals price manipulation, and manipulation in other Markets. Virtually all of the evidence for Intervention has been gleaned from publicly available records. Deepcaster’s profitable recommendations displayed at www.deepcaster.com have been facilitated by attention to these “Interventionals.” Attention to The Interventionals facilitated Deepcaster’s recommending five short positions prior to the Fall, 2008 Market Crash all of which were subsequently liquidated profitably.
Note 2: Our attention to Key Timing Signals and Interventionals and accurate statistics has facilitated Recommendations which have performed well lately. Consider our profits taken in recent months in our Speculative and Fortress Assets Portfolios
- 72% Profit on a Bull Sector ETF/ETN on June 24, 2019
- 32% Profit on a Market Volatility ETF on May 7, 2019 in just three weeks
- 50% Profit on a Gold Royalty Company on April 8, 2019
- 70% Profit on a Bull Sector ETF/ETN on January 22, 2019
- 115% Profit on the Volatility Index on January 3, 2019
- 70% Profit on a Bull Sector ETF/ETN on December 12, 2018
- 60% Profit on the Volatility Index on December 6, 2018
Paid Subscribers can see All Deepcaster’s Buy Recommendations & Bull Sectors posted under SUBSCRIBERS especially of a recently recommended Gold Royalty company and an oil & gas service company with a recent yield in excess of 20%. See also Recent Profits Taken and Portfolios.
As Deepcaster forecast, Volatility and Sector Mega-Move Trends are intensifying and we expect them to intensify further.
Deepcaster’s Profits Taken in 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 included such successes as 115%, 105%, 90%, and 55% after just 16 days, 110%, 60% 130% and 75%, 65%, 50% in 2 days, 90%, 80% in 6 days, 110% in 3 days, 265% in 57 days, 65% in 2 days.
*Past Profitable Performance is no assurance of future Profitable Performance.

2019 Forecast Mega-Moves Overview
Deepcaster’s Recent Letters and Alerts provide Forecasts re How Best to Profit and Protect in 2019 along with Buy Recommendations aimed at profiting from upcoming Mega-Moves.
But, since 2019 is likely to provide a Vastly Different Investing and Trading Landscape than any of the years 2009 through 2018, it is essential to always know and bear in mind the Mega-Forces Driving Key Markets in 2019.
We identify those here.
The Fundamental Reality of the Period 2009-2018 was that it began with ultra-low rates and related “Accommodations” (e.g., QE) by the Major Central Banks. And those only began to be reversed in the last couple of years.
These “accommodations” facilitated record Multi-Trillion Dollar levels of Indebtedness by Sovereign Nations, Businesses and Individuals.
And they especially fueled a years-long period of dramatic Asset Price Inflation, including Equities price Inflation, [and Asset Inflation which especially benefited the Mega-Bank owners of The Private, For-Profit Fed (i.e., the Leaders of the Deep State’s Cartel) and the other Owners of Capital] — so much Debt indeed that much of it can never be repaid without a substantial debasing of the Purchasing Power of the currencies in which the Debt is Denominated.
But in recent Months, The Fed has attempted to Deflate the Bubble it created by raising Rates and Removing liquidity from the Markets by reducing its Balance Sheet.
But, given the Vulnerabilities around the World — Weak Italian and Greek Banks, Brexit Struggles, Trade Tensions with China, and an intensifying of China’s Debt and Declining GDP woes, the vulnerabilities are greater than ever. As well, Massive Waves of economically Dependent Immigrants — many of whom refuse to assimilate — flood Europe and the U.S.A. (cf the $330 Billion Annual NET [i.e., after subtracting taxes Immigrants pay] Cost of Mass Legal Immigration to American Taxpayers see Net Costs of Legal Immigration Study — see carryingcapacity.org). Given all the foregoing, even a few months of tightening proved too much for Economies and Markets around the World. Especially given the Record Leverage around the World, The Fed and other Key Central Banks started to “lighten up.”
To be blunt, given the Central Bank-facilitated Debt-Fueled “Asset” Bubbles. Economies and Equities around the world have been, and still are, substantially artificially Elevated. And because of the record Multi-Trillion $$ of Debt, these Debts, we reiterate, can never be repaid without Fiat Currency debasement.
And fundamentally, the Economies had, through the first three quarters of 2018 appeared to be strong only because of the size of Asset Bubbles, they could not take the Fed’s prospective Tightening… So The Fed “blinked” with its “we will be patient” change of course in January 2019.
And this signaled that the $US and Other Major Fiat Currencies were and are destined to Weaken.
And that facilitated the Genuine launches of Gold and Silver, despite Cartel Suppression attempts. [Of course Cartel Suppression attempts will continue to be successful, but only intermittently, and not enough to stop the Launch.]
Thus for 2019, and beyond we expect
Falling Asset Inflation (e.g., Equities down)
Rising Cost Inflation (e.g., Fiat Currency Purchasing Power down)
due to the continuing depreciation of the $US and other Fiat Currencies — Stagflation is coming. Indeed, likely Hyperstagflation.
In other words, we emphasize diminishing Purchasing Power for the Major Fiat Currencies. And since it is now clear that, since we are going to have Fiat Currency Purchasing Power Debasement, Key Equities and other Markets have started to turn down.
Though Deepcaster never relies solely on Technicals, consider specifically, recently how this Turn is reflected in Key Technicals:
- A “shooting star candlestick” often seen at tops and
- A full Fibonacci Retracement (61.8%, actually 61.9%) of the decline since September 21, 2018’s TOP and a “Patient” Fed. All signal an impending decline from the aforementioned February 3 Numbers.
So what’s ahead?
- For months, much greater Volatility
- A Traders market, not Buy & Hold Market — CAVEAT EMPTOR
- As Key Markets Tank (Deepcaster already correctly forecast the FAANGs tank Months ago) More Fed and other Central Bank Money Printing
- Resulting rocketing Select Safe Haven Prices
So, in order to Profit and Protect, with “Select” Assets, it is most important to read Deepcaster’s February Letter “Surmounting Impending Unavoidable Markets Disasters, for Profits and Protection,” at Deepcaster.com.
