Is This How The Smart Money Is Betting On A Market Crash?

Instead of allocating capital to expensive tail risk bets on direct asset class collapse (in equities, credit, and commodities), it appears, just as we detailed previously, the 'smartest money in the room' is "betting" indirectly on a stock market crash through eurodollar options.

P2P Cracks Start To Show As LendingClub Write-Offs Double Forecasts

“Their business is to take data and use that to underwrite risk. If you’re an investor in the loans on the platform, this creates a concern around that underwriting model.”

Global Economy “Trapped in Death Spiral” According to Wall Street Bank

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

The day is finally here: the economic collapse is admitted.
There have been plenty of people warning of the perils ahead in the financial world. Of the inevitable crash of the system, and the terribly unstable factors that were coming together in a perfect storm.
But now those voices include major Wall Street players like Citi, Goldman Sachs and billionaire investors like Soros.
Their experts are now pointing to a triangulation of collapsing oil prices, recession and equity. There are other key factors, too, but all will combine to create a devastating climate for the American people. Indeed, the crisis would be felt globally as well.

After "preparing" for over a week, moments ago at 00:31 UTC time, North Korea - which has failed to shock the world with some "news" for over a month when it tested a "hydrogen" bomb which according to experts was anything but - launched a long-range rocket which some say is being used as a cover for banned missile test.

Ukraine Bonds Crash After Economy Minister Resigns Over "High-Level Corruption"

While the rest of the world's bond yields are collapsing and prices soaring (as NIRP sweeps the globe), Ukraine's 'young' implicitly-US-taxpayer-backed bonds have plunged to record lows. The reason - aside from simply disturbing economics - is, as The FT reports, the dramatic resignation of the economy minister accusing a senior presidential ally of blocking his attempts to root out graft and stymieing his plans for reform. Abromavicius exclaimed, of the Washington-installed elite at Kiev's heart, "I realised there is an intention to unwind the process of making all of this transparent."

How Did The World Get This Way?

The idea that you can fix bad debt with more debt is as prevalent as the idea that the US economy can be binge hiring while careening into recession. What’s truly sad is that those two mistakes are really, at root, the same. The road ahead to real recovery and sustainable growth starts with “unlearning” monetarism. It is a huge task.

This will be investigated until all involved DIE...

Is Shorting The Yuan Dangeorus?

The announcement that China will start targeting the yuan against a basket of currencies and not the dollar is consistent with the strategy of undermining the dollar's value. While the view of a looming Yuan devaluation seems almost universal, GoldMoney's Alasdair Macleod warns instead that something else may be a foot - China will sell her dollars not to protect the yuan, but to dispose of an overvalued currency.

from The Sleuth Journal:

In the digital age of fast-travelling information, news simply flies. It is almost impossible to keep up with every little detail at once, which is why news needs constant updates to add unknown details which provide better perspective and context. These two characteristics are what ultimately provide readers a change to understand reality.
For the past six months, we have followed as many developments as possible about the scary Zika virus, which health authorities have identified as the culprit of a growing number of cases of microcephaly in South and Central America.
