Currency War Update: Trump Prepares to Return Fire on Europe
Over the last month I’ve been warning that the world was going to soon enter World War III.
The difference between this World War and the last two is that this one will be financial in nature – rather than bullets and bombs, it’s going to be fought with central banks and currencies.
Europe officially “fired the first shot” of this war last week when the European Central Bank (ECB) launched several aggressive massive monetary policies.
To recap, they were:
- Cutting interest rates even further into the negative (they’re now negative 0.5%).
- Introducing a new open-ended QE program of €20 billion per month.
- Lowering the interest rate the ECB charges EU banks that wish to borrow from the ECB as a means of life support.
In one single meeting, the ECB introduced not one but THREE major easing programs.
Not only did the ECB cut rates, but it also introduced an “open-ended” QE program, meaning that this program could run forever (there is no target end date) while also giving EU banks access to cheaper credit.
On Friday, I wondered aloud how the U.S. would likely retaliate. President Trump has already given us a few clues…
Negative Interest Rates Are Coming to the U.S.
Here, the President is urging the Fed to cut interest rates to zero if not NEGATIVE.
Yes, we are talking about NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES – rates that require the lender to PAY the borrower for the right to lend him or her money, coming to the U.S.
And it’s the President, not some conspiracy nut, urging this!
The impact would be truly incredible. It’s one thing for the ECB to launch negative rates, it’s something else altogether for the Fed to do the same. After all, the Fed controls the U.S. dollar, the reserve currency of the world comprising over 90% of global currency transactions.
Why would President Trump want to do this?
Because he knows a crisis greater than 2008 is coming… and he wants to restructure the U.S.’s debt in advance, thereby improving its position relative to its trade partners.
How to Profit from the Currency Wars
The fact that President Trump is openly calling for zero if not negative rates now tells us that the next crisis is A LOT closer than most imagine.
Big Picture: World War III just began. And before the smoke clears, we’re going to see entire COUNTRIES implode.
The process won’t happen overnight. The last crisis took 18 months to unfold and it involved real estate, an asset class that is not nearly as systemically important as sovereign debt.
But if I had to use a template for where we are now, what the ECB did last week tells me we’re in the equivalent of “late 2007” for the next crisis.
And really, that’s the exciting part…
With the right strategies, a crisis can mean generating LITERAL FORTUNES.
I knew this was coming, which is why I’ve spent over six months developing a proprietary trading system to profit from the next currency wars.
I call it Alpha Currency Profits, and it is the single most profitable trading strategy I’ve seen in my entire career.
Since its launch, Alpha Currency Profits has shown traders returns of:
- 52% in two days
- 63% in five days
- 75% in five days
- 79% in four days
- Even 100% in just four days.
We’re showing traders a win rate of 85%, meaning we’re making money on OVER eight out of every 10 trades we make.
In the trading world, a win rate like this – with every single winner in the double digits – is UNHEARD OF.
If you’re interested in seeing these kinds of returns, you can find out more about this unique trading system below… and the best part is, we’re trading currencies without touching the dangerous foreign exchange (FOREX) market!
