Unsustainable trends can survive much longer than most people anticipate, but they do end when their “time is up” – at the culmination of their time cycles…In an effort to bring clarity in how and when these trends could change direction we analyzed more than 20 different cycles. They almost unanimously point to tectonic shifts in the months and years ahead … starting now. We have been warned. At this point, we have enough confirmation to accept that the gold and silver crash – starting in April of 2013 – was the first shot across the board of what is to come. Read on!

Below are edited excerpts from their article:
Financial crashes and economic collapses are not inevitable, but they seem more likely in the next few years, starting later this summer. Preparation might appear to be a waste of time and resources, but lack of preparation could result in the loss of wealth, incomes, jobs, and lives. Perhaps our leaders will guide the world economies through some upcoming hard times, but they might also aggravate those hard times by following policies that benefit the political and financial elite at the expense of the middle class and the poorer classes. Look at current trends in government and banking, and decide for yourself!
The next few years are likely to be quite problematic for most of the world’s population, particularly the poor. People who have the majority of their assets in stocks, bonds and paper debt may also be hurt as the currencies are inflated and purchasing power declines sharply.
Below we present a summary of cycles for stocks and bonds, war, gold and silver. We show the source of the cyclic information, the relevant timing, and some commentary.
Stocks & Bonds
Charles Nenner Research
Stocks should peak in mid-2013 and fall until about 2020. Similarly, bonds should peak in the summer of 2013 and fall thereafter for 20 years. Nenner bases his conclusions entirely on cycle research. He expects the Dow to fall to around 5,000 by 2018 – 2020.
Kress Cycles by Clif Droke
The major 120 year cycle plus all minor cycles trend down into late 2014. The stock market should decline hard into late 2014.
Elliott Wave Cycles by Robert Prechter
The stock market…has entered a generational bear-market [with] a crash low in the market around 2016 – 2017.
Market Energy Wave
A 36 year cycle peak in stock markets in mid-2013 (July 19th) and then a drop of 25 – 50% between 2013 and 2016.
Armstrong’s Economic Confidence Model projects a peak in confidence in August 2013, a bottom in September 2014, and another peak in October 2015. The decline into January 2020 should be severe. He expects a world-wide crash and contraction in economies from 2015 – 2020.
Cycles per Charles Hugh Smith
4 long-term cycles bottom roughly in the 2010 – 2020 period. They are: Credit expansion/contraction cycle; Price inflation/wage cycle; Generational cycle; and Peak oil extraction cycle.
Harry Dent – Demographics
Stock prices should drop, on average for the balance of this decade. Demographic cycles in the United States (and elsewhere) indicate a contraction in real terms for most of this decade. [Read: Harry Dent Sees Dow 3,000; Seth Masters Sees Dow 20,000! Who’s Most Likely Right?]
Sun Spot Cycles
Market tops often occur at or near peaks in sun spots and thet are expected to peak in the summer of 2013 and decline into 2019. This is an approximate 10 – 13 year cycle. Economic and political upheavals tend to occur at or near the peak of sun spot cycles.
1987, 2000, and 2013 marked stock market highs, all 13 years apart.
His research shows that the world-wide tendency to fight major wars rises and falls over time. He currently projects a peak about 2020 with rising war fever from 2013 until 2020. There is no shortage of possible war zones. As conditions worsen during the balance of this decade, nations will be inclined to distract and control their populace via wars and increased government control and management of the economy.
Long term war cycles
1780, 1860, 1940, 2020? About every 80 years there has been a major war involving the United States.
Gold & Silver
Amanita inflation markets model
He expects a major gold low in 2014/15, and a super bull market running into 2020. He is one of the top timers in the world according to “Timer Digest”.
He uses Elliott Wave theory to analyze gold. His first major target for gold is $4500, for Intermediate wave III of MAJOR THREE. Wave IV will be a correction and wave V will take gold much higher thereafter. [Read: Alf Field: Gold Going to $4,500/ozt. in Next Wave Towards Parabolic Peak]
Charles Nenner Research
He expects gold to bottom about now and rally substantially from here. He called the top in gold two years ago. He called for a bottom about now in the $1300s. He expects a large rally that extends several years.
He projects a low for gold in June 2013 followed by a substantial rally until about 2020, possibly to $10,000.
Gold is likely to be weak until after October 2015, and then move strongly higher into January 2020. Gold will rise primarily due to the collapse of paper currencies in the period from 2015 – 2020.
This comet will be visible in October and November 2013 – it is expected to be the brightest comet in years, perhaps many decades. Highly visible comets often indicate sudden changes in leadership, political systems, and financial systems. Possible changes are the failure or redesign of the Euro, a dollar crash, assassination of a major leader, impeachment, derivative implosion, martial law, international war, and a major economic default.
JR Nyquist on global cooling and food production
He discusses long-term solar output cycles. He anticipates that an approximately 200 year cycle in solar output will reduce average temperatures, available water, and crop yields. He expects higher food prices and famine during the next decade. The last cold cycle low was around the time Napoleon marched into Russia.
100 year anniversaries
1913 was an important year. It marked the beginning of the Federal Reserve and the income tax in the U.S.. 2013 has already shown that essentially all digital communications and internet activity are tracked and recorded by the government. It has also marked the authorization for military control and martial law in the United States. Further, bank account and brokerage confiscations (bail-ins) have already occurred and more “bail-ins” are likely. 2013 could mark the beginning of what might evolve into WWIII – starting in the Middle East.
Financial Astrology Cycles
Amanita (Astrological cycles)
He expects a peak for stocks, bonds, gold, and silver in July or August 2013. Thereafter, those markets should decline, and equities and bonds could crash. Gold and silver should rally into 2020. He anticipates a very difficult time world-wide until 2023. This could include market crashes, financial meltdowns, economic collapse, world war, and increasing government control over the populace. Furthermore, the timeline between 2016 and 2020 is the most likely period for a derivative implosion.
Stock markets peak in early June 2013, bottom in late 2014, late 2017, and 2020. This model anticipates a stock market decline into 2020 from a peak in June 2013.
Crawford: Mars-Uranus Crash Cycle
He sees a crash window from late 2013 – through early 2015. This model anticipates a stock market decline into 2020 from a peak in June 2013.
The model sees a peak in 2011, bottom in late 2014 and lower low in 2020. It indicates weakening economies and declining global liquidity into late 2014, a short bounce and then further decline into 2020.
Amanita long term equities model
He expects a high in spring of 2013 and a low in early 2015. This indicates nearly two years of weakening stock markets, world-wide.
Saturn-Neptune hard aspects
These hard aspects correlate with the bursting of major bubbles….[and they suggest a] bursting of the fiat currency, bond, or derivative bubbles for late 2015.
Global food supplies, as discussed by Amanita
Period: 2014 – 2034. Global temperatures are likely to decline, substantially lowering crop yields and causing massive starvation. Rebellions, riots, and chaos often begin with food shortages.
There are many cycles that suggest a stock market correction or crash is near. That correction/crash will probably be accompanied by a correction in the bond market that reverses much of the bullish action of the past 30 years. (Signs of a bond bear market are already visible.)
Gold and silver should rally substantially as their cycles are turning up while money flees the stock and bond markets and attempts to find safety in an increasingly dangerous world.
Financially and socially, many cycles have turned downward, and many will not bottom until later in this decade. Much can go…[very] wrong during the next seven years. Now is NOT the time for complacency or procrastination.
Along with the decline in equities, bonds, and the value of paper money will come – probably –
- more social unrest,
- bankrupt local, state and national governments with more debt defaults,
- higher unemployment,
- possible monetary and/or economic collapse,
- a likely escalation in regional and global wars,
- considerably higher consumer prices for food and energy. Gradual cooling (NOT warming) will reduce crop yields and drive already high food prices much higher. The world’s poor will suffer. Hungry people are inclined to rebel and threaten world governments,
- more repressive governments that will increase their information gathering on all those viewed as potentially threatening to the status quo.
Alf Field wrote The Brutal Truths in 2011 regarding what is needed to fix our monetary system, namely;
- The slate needs to be wiped clean and a new sound monetary system introduced.
- That will require the elimination of all debt, deficits, unfunded social entitlements, the US Dollar as Reserve currency, and the big one, the $600 trillion of derivatives.
- To eliminate these problems by default and deflation will cause a banking collapse and untold economic pain, leading to riots and political change.
- Politicians are appointed for relatively short terms and opt for the easy solutions.
- While politicians continue to have the ability to create new money at will, they will do so in order to prevent a melt down on their watch.
- Consequently the odds point to governments wiping the slate clean by generating enough new money to eventually destroy their currencies.
- The new international monetary system is likely to involve precious metals. It will have to be money that people trust and that governments cannot create at will.
Preparation is important. You still have a little time remaining before the “window” closes!

It is relatively easy to predict further commodity price inflation as a result of the massive money printing going on worldwide and that hard assets, not paper assets, will help protect purchasing power but it is much more difficult to project where else this money printing leads and to what extent a crash is inevitable. What is the endgame? Will it be another financial crash such as in 2008 or will it be a more destructive financial and economic crash that causes a severe but temporary disruption in the delivery of goods and services?

QE3 looks like a desperate act to feed money to large banks, offload MBS toxic waste from their balance sheets, devalue the dollar against houses, commodities, and other currencies and create significant collateral damage in the form of consumer price inflation according to a number of respected economists and critical thinkers on the subject of QE3.

Commodity prices including those of…[gold and silver] tend to go through super-cycles…[which] last for many years. [Below is a review of the history of such cycles and the length of each.

Bubbles tend to follow the 80/20 ratio indicated in the Pareto Principle where approximately 80% of the price move occurs in the LAST 20% of the time. That being the case it would appear that gold and silver could conceivably top out around $9,000 per troy ounce and $250/ozt respectively .This is not a prediction of future prices of gold and silver; it is an indication of what could happen in a speculative bubble environment based on the history of previous bubbles.

Once this present correction in gold has been completed it should [undergo] the largest and strongest wave in the entire gold bull market…to around $4,500 with only two 13% corrections along the way. [Let me explain how I came to that conclusion.] Words: 1900

When the supply of something is increased sharply relative to demand, the value of that commodity will decline. If the supply continues to increase rapidly and indefinitely, then that item will become worth less and less, with the potential to finally become nearly worthless. This is the Developing Disaster facing the US Dollar and the world. This is the factor that could become the single most important criterion in investment allocation decisions and possibly even for individual financial survival…[Let me explain this further by reviewing the 7 major problems facing the U.S. (and thus the world) and how they all will lead to problem #7 – devolution.] Words: 1520
J.P. Morgan Asset Management has developed a chart showing the past two cycles in the S&P 500 highlighting peak and trough valuations. At face value it is very alarming as it suggests a potential decline of somewhere in the vicinity of 60% over the next year or two and concurs with previous innovative trend analyses included in this article.

Charles Nenner has been accurately predicting movements in the liquid markets for more than 25 years, and his most recent cycle analysis predicts that the current stock market rally is going to last through Q2 and then begin a major descent in 2013 – with the Dow eventually reaching 5,000!
