Fed is Swapping Zero Interest Rates for Cheap Oil; Turmoil in Markets Result

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Stock markets are in a panic selling mode as we speak. There are real issues out there, such as China’s economy and plummeting oil prices. Cheap oil is good, right? Well why are the financial pundits complaining about it? I believe it is because the banks are still leveraged up on derivatives, and the rapid change in oil prices could cause them to collapse. Zerohedge has even reported that the Dallas Fed told Banks to suspend mark-to-market for energy loans four days ago. We are told oil is dropping because of lack of demand (China), to punish Russia, Saudi refuses to decrease production, etc.

I would like to propose another reason: The Fed need to raise interest rates. It cannot do that without collapsing the derivatives bubble. Unless, that is, it can find a substitute for zero interest rates. Could $10/barrel oil be the ticket? If true, at this point, the first prick in the derivatives bubble has been applied by the Fed, and the corresponding collapse of oil prices is occurring. Is it getting out of control? Can the Fed control this process? Only time will tell.

Trump, Clinton, Lawrence Krauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Copernicus in 2016
