Here Is The Secret On The Economic Collapse

The middle east is in turmoil, the US government paid mercenaries are losing the battle in Syria, failure is imminent. To bring the war out of Syria they central bankers/US government is causing anarchy all across the middle east. The FED is confusing the markets and the stock market is dropping and gold is rising. Many retail outlets are showing a decline in revenue and Walmart which is the gauge of the middle class is reporting their sales are falling. Macy’s is also showing that sales are falling. George Soros is putting a put call on the S&P 500 betting that its going to collapse.

Bullion Baron: Where Are The Headlines For Soros’s $1.25 Billion Bet Against The Stock Market?

It’s 13F revelation time, and the headlines are full of news about big investor George Sorosgoing hot for Apple and dumping on gold in the second quarter. However, there’s something else in those numbers that should make investors sit up a little.

Possibly buried amid the Apple excitement is the fact that Soros Fund Management’s biggest position is a put on the S&P 500 ETF SPY -0.08%. Soros bought a put on1,248,643 SPY units in the quarter. A put option gives the owner the right to sell a specific amount of an asset at a set price within a set time, and generally means the investor expects that asset will go down in price.

So yes, as Bullion Baron and Whalewisdom point out, Soros is making a huge bet on the S&P 500 SPX -1.43% going lower.

Doing the calculations, the Baron points out that the SPY put position — relative to the total size of the fund — rose from 1.28% to 4.79% in the first quarter, more than tripling. It also went up 13.54% in the second quarter, nearly tripling again.

History has a story to tell about big calls from Soros and people should be paying attention, says the Baron blog:

“Soros reportedly made $1 billion betting against the British pound in 1992. We heard rumors of Soros making a $1 billion bet against the AUD (a position that has done well if true). We heard when he made $1 billion betting against the yen. Where are the headlines for his $1.25 billion bet against the stock market?” asks Baron.

    The guy writing this article doesn’t even know what puts and calls are. A call is a right to buy a long position at a stated price; a put is a right to sell a long position at a stated price. There is no such thing as a put call, so I would say this guy is not even a market novice; he is simply an idiot.

    It is not uncommon to buy stock and at the same time as insurance also buy a put so that if the stock position turns out to go sour, the put makes him money to limit his overall loss. Plenty of people do it when they expect a big market move but aren’t sure which direction it will take.

    The time is not yet right for the market to crash. The odds favor a big move up to take it to an extreme overbought point from where it can fall. The markets always oscillate around a long term trend. Right now the stock market is not at an extreme; it is just slightly above its long trend. This is not the point from which it crashes. To crash, it must be at an extreme from the trend and that will only happen after a sharp spike to the upside. Look for the stock market to spike up over the next six months in what will surprise most people, and draw in the crowd which always is too late and buys too high and sells too low. This absolutely is not the time to sell stock unless the precious metals which are cyclically on the way down.

      Sid, you are correct if the markets are left to there natural order. But in this farce of market manipulation, and the Fed pulling the levers behind the green curtain, it is obvious that evil goblin-like characters are determined on destroying the financial markets, thereby destroying our economic system to usher in a One World financial system that these psycho’s initiate for what, profit? They’d destroy mankind if there was a profit motive to it? Of course!

      Who Is George Soros? George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good. Soros is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist World class philosopher, despises the American way, and just loves to do social engineering and change cultures.

      By his (Soro’s) own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.

      György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’s father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the Gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930′s.

      When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population.

      In the end all will be revealed for the scoundrels they are.
