SPREADING OPERATIONS

(/NOW SWITCHING TO GOLD) FOR NEWCOMERS, HERE ARE THE DETAILS

SPREADING LIQUIDATION HAS NOW COMMENCED   AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE  NEW  ACTIVE FRONT MONTH OF FEB. WE ARE NOW INTO THE SPREADING OPERATION OF BOTH GOLD (

HERE IS A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF HOW THE CROOKS FLEECE UNSUSPECTING LONGS IN THE SPREADING ENDEAVOUR ;MODUS OPERANDI OF THE CORRUPT BANKERS AS TO HOW THEY HANDLE THEIR SPREAD OPEN INTERESTS:HERE IS HOW THE CROOKS USED SPREADING AS WE ARE NOW INTO THE  NON ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF OCT HEADING TOWARDS THE  ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF FEB., FOR BOTH GOLD:

YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT THE COMEX OPEN INTEREST  STARTS TO RISE BUT SO IS THE OPEN INTEREST OF SPREADERS. THE OPEN INTEREST IN WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UNTIL ONE WEEK BEFORE FIRST DAY NOTICE OF AN UPCOMING  ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH (NOV), AND THAT IS WHEN THE CROOKS SELL THEIR SPREAD POSITIONS BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME OF THE DAY.  THEY WILL USE THE SELL SIDE OF THE EQUATION TO CREATE THE CASCADE (ALONG WITH THEIR COLLUSIVE FRIENDS) AND THEN COVER ON THE BUY SIDE OF THE SPREAD SITUATION AT THE END  OF THE DAY. THEY DO THIS TO AVOID POSITION LIMIT DETECTION. THE LIQUIDATION OF THE SPREADING FORMATION CONTINUES FOR EXACTLY ONE WEEK AND ENDS ON FIRST DAY NOTICE.”

WHAT IS ALARMING TO ME, ACCORDING TO OUR LONDON EXPERT ANDREW MAGUIRE IS THAT THESE EFP’S ARE BEING TRANSFERRED TO WHAT ARE CALLED SERIAL FORWARD CONTRACT OBLIGATIONS AND THESE CONTRACTS ARE LESS THAN 14 DAYS.  ANYTHING GREATER THAN 14 DAYS, THESE MUST BE RECORDED AND SENT TO THE COMPTROLLER, GREAT BRITAIN TO MONITOR RISK TO THE BANKING SYSTEM.  IF THIS IS INDEED TRUE, THEN THIS IS A MASSIVE CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD AS WE NOW WITNESS A MONSTROUS TOTAL EFP’S ISSUANCE AS IT HEADS INTO THE STRATOSPHERE

First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:

1.Today, we had the open interest at the comex, in SILVER ROSE BY A SMALL  SIZED 253 CONTRACTS OI TO  134,922 AND CLOSER TO OUR COMEX HIGH RECORD //244,710(SET FEB 25/2020).  THE LAST RECORDS WERE SET  IN AUG.2018 AT 244,196 WITH A SILVER PRICE OF $14.78/(AUGUST 22/2018)..THE PREVIOUS RECORD TO THAT WAS SET ON APRIL 9/2018 AT 243,411 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS WITH THE SILVER PRICE AT THAT DAY: $16.53). AND PREVIOUS TO THAT, THE RECORD  WAS ESTABLISHED AT: 234,787 CONTRACTS, SET ON APRIL 21.2017 OVER  5 YEARS AGO.  

EFP ISSUANCE 375 CONTRACTS

OUR CUSTOMARY MIGRATION OF COMEX LONGS CONTINUE TO MORPH INTO LONDON FORWARDS  AS OUR BANKERS USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE:

MAR 375 and ALL OTHER MONTHS: ZERO. TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE: 1219 CONTRACTS. EFP’S GIVE OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON.  IF WE TAKE THE  COMEX OI GAIN  OF 519 CONTRACTS AND ADD TO THE  375 OI TRANSFERRED TO LONDON THROUGH EFP’S,

WE OBTAIN A STRONG SIZED GAIN OF 628 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS FROM OUR TWO EXCHANGES. 

THUS IN OUNCES, THE GAIN  ON THE TWO EXCHANGES 3.14 MILLION OZ//

OCCURRED DESPITE OUR 21 CENT GAIN IN PRICE ….. OUR SPEC SHORTS HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE!

LET US BEGIN:

THE TOTAL COMEX GOLD OPEN INTEREST FELL BY A FAIR SIZED 2565 CONTRACTS DOWN TO 499,927 DESPITE OUR  GAIN IN PRICE OF $7.35

EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL ISSUANCE

WE ARE NOW IN THE NON-ACTIVE DELIVERY MONTH OF JAN…  THE CME REPORTS THAT THE BANKERS ISSUED A FAIR  SIZED TRANSFER THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE AS THESE LONGS RECEIVED A DELIVERABLE LONDON FORWARD TOGETHER WITH A FIAT BONUS.,

THAT IS 1828 EFP CONTRACTS WERE ISSUED:  ;: ,  . 0 FEB: 1828 & ZERO FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS:

TOTAL EFP ISSUANCE:  1828   CONTRACTS 

WHEN WE HAVE BACKWARDATION,  EFP ISSUANCE IS VERY COSTLY BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS THE SCARCITY OF METAL AND IT IS FAR BETTER FOR OUR BANKERS TO PAY OFF INDIVIDUALS THAN RISK INVESTORS ESPECIALLY FROM LONDON STANDING FOR DELIVERY. THE LOWER PRICES IN THE FUTURES MARKET IS A MAGNET FOR OUR LONDONERS SEEKING PHYSICAL METAL. BACKWARDATION ALWAYS EQUAL SCARCITY OF METAL!

ON A NET BASIS IN OPEN INTEREST WE LOST THE FOLLOWING TODAY ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES: A SMALL SIZED  TOTAL OF 737 CONTRACTS IN THAT 1828 LONGS WERE TRANSFERRED AS FORWARDS TO LONDON AND WE HAD A FAIR SIZED  COMEX OI LOSS OF 2565 CONTRACTS..AND  THIS  TINY SIZED LOSS ON OUR TWO EXCHANGES HAPPENED DESPITE OUR  ADVANCE  IN PRICE OF $7.35. WE ARE NOW WITNESSING THE BANKERS GOING NET SHORT AND THE SPECS GOING NET LONG .

CALCULATIONS FOR THE AMOUNT OF GOLD STANDING FOR JANUARY.

For the front month of JANUARY we have an oi of 421 contracts having gained 95  contracts

We had 103 notices served on Tuesday, so we gained 198  contracts or an additional 19,800 oz(0.6158 tonnes) will stand for delivery in this

very non active delivery month of January.  (queue jump). 

February lost  34,445  contacts  to 146,704  (looks like Feb. is going to be a huge delivery month

March gained 38 contracts to stand at 1182.

April gained 27,042 contracts up to 288,560

We had 243  notice(s) filed today for 133,757 oz 

Today, 0 notice(s) were issued from J.P.Morgan dealer account and  55  notices were issued from their client or customer account. The total of all issuance by all participants equate to  243  contract(s) of which 0   notices were stopped (received) by  j.P. Morgan dealer and 10  notice(s) was (were) stopped/ Received) by J.P.Morgan//customer account and 0 notice(s) received (stopped) by the squid  (Goldman Sachs)

To calculate the INITIAL total number of gold ounces standing for the JAN. /2023. contract month, 

we take the total number of notices filed so far for the month (6327 x 100 oz , to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of  (JANUARY 421 CONTRACTS)  minus the number of notices served upon today  243 x 100 oz per contract equals 650,300 OZ  OR 20.227 TONNES the number of TONNES standing in this    non active month of January. This is a new record for gold standing in the month of January.

thus the INITIAL standings for gold for the JAN contract month:

No of notices filed so far (6327 x 100 oz+   (421 OI for the front month minus the number of notices served upon today (243} x 100 oz} which equals 650,300 oz standing OR 20.227 TONNES in this NON  active delivery month of JAN..

TOTAL COMEX GOLD STANDING: 20.227 TONNES  (A HUGE STANDING FOR METAL AND A NEW RECORD FOR ANY JANUARY MONTH )//COMEX RUNNING OUT OF PHYSICAL TO SERVE UPON OUR LONGS.

silver open interest data:

FRONT MONTH OF JAN/2023 OI: 8  CONTRACTS HAVING LOST 2  CONTRACT(S.). WE HAD 7 NOTICES

FILED ON TUESDAY SO  WE   GAINED  5 CONTRACT(S)  OR AN ADDITIONAL 25,000 OZ WILL STAND OVER HERE

TOTAL NUMBER OF NOTICES FILED FOR TODAY:7 for  35,000 oz

Comex volumes// est. volume today  56.523//fair  

Comex volume: confirmed yesterday: 56,539 contracts ( fair)

To calculate the number of silver ounces that will stand for delivery in JANUARY. we take the total number of notices filed for the month so far at 1000 x  5,000 oz = 5,000,000 oz 

to which we add the difference between the open interest for the front month of JAN(8) and the number of notices served upon today 7 x (5000 oz) equals the number of ounces standing.

Thus the  standings for silver for the JAN./2023 contract month: 1000 (notices served so far) x 5000 oz + OI for the front month of JAN (8 – number of notices served upon today (7) x 500 oz of silver standing for the JAN. contract month equates 5.005 million oz  + 7.25 MILLION OZ ( EXCHANGE FOR RISK) = 12.255MILLION OZ//(TOTAL OZ OF SILVER STANDING).

the record level of silver open interest is 234,787 contracts set on April 21./2017 with the price on that day at $18.42. The previous record was 224,540 contracts with the price at that time of $20.44

Indians have always been a hoarder of gold; now they are settingh records for importing silver.  They have imported more than 1/2 of annual production

(SchiffGold)

Indian Silver Imports Set Record In 2022

TUESDAY, JAN 24, 2023 – 05:45 PM

Via SchiffGold.com,

India’s love for gold is well-known. It is the second largest gold-consuming country in the world behind China. But Indians also have an affinity for silver.

JAN 25//OUR BANKERS& SHORT SPECS CANNOT STOP GOLD’S MOMENTUM:  GOLD UP .55 TO 41.55 AFTER BEING BLASTED LAST NIGHT//SILVER ALSO RESPONED IN KIND UP 19 CENTS TO .84//PLATINUM FELL .10 TO 41.90//PALLADIUM WAS BELTED .15 TO 02.60//SCHIFF GOLD ON HUGE INDIAN SILVER DEMAND///COVID UPDATES:ROSS POMEROY ON WHY MILLENIALS ARE HAVING HUGE NUMBER OF STROKES AFTER BEING FULLY VACCINATED//  VACCINE IMPACT//DR PAUL ALEXANDER//RUSSIA VS UKRAINE: USA AND GERMANY DECIDE TO SEND ABRAMS 1 TANKS AND LEOPARD 2 TANKS TO UKRAINE//CHINA’S ECONOMY FALTERING DUE TO LACK OF SEMI CONDUCTOR CHIPS//

Last year, silver imports into India hit a new record of  304 million ounces. That crushed the previous import high of 260 million ounces set in 2015.

More than half of the silver flowing into India is used in jewelry and silverware, and about one-third of India’s silver demand comes from investors in physical metal including silver bars and silver coins.

According to a report published by the Silver Institute, since 2010, Indian retail investors have bought around 730 million ounces of silver (22,700 tons). To put that into perspective, that represents about 90% of 2022’s total global silver mine production.

Over the last decade, the only years that silver investment demand fell in India were in 2016 and during the pandemic in 2020.

Silver investment in India was muted during the pandemic years but charted a healthy rebound in 2022. Investment in physical silver jumped to 79.4 million ounces last year, the highest level since 2015.

Indian silver demand is highest in rural and semi-urban areas. According to the Silver Institute report, this is a reflection of the relatively low entry price.

Furthermore, even fabricators and wholesalers buy silver as an investment during periods of low prices to be later converted into jewelry or silverware, or just to sell back when the price is high to take profits. Given the profile of investors, physical silver investment has so far been largely immune to competition from other asset classes, such as equities.”

The proliferation of silver exchange-traded products (ETP) in India has also spurred investment demand in the white metal.

The first Indian exchange-traded product was launched in September 2021. Currently, there are seven ETPs and five silver ETP Fund-of-Funds (FoFs, which invest in ETPs). As of the end of 2022, silver ETF holdings in India stood at an estimated 8 million ounces.

The Indian government’s crackdown on the gold market has boosted silver investment. According to the Silver Institute report, “The Indian government’s ongoing tough stance towards unaccounted money and the increased vigilance on gold transactions have benefited silver as investors have moved out of gold and in favor of silver.”

The Silver Institute report underscores the importance of India in the global silver market.

As the world’s sixth-largest economy and foremost silver fabricator, India also plays an essential role in silver and gold investment demand, historically recognized in that market as savings and investment assets, a reflection of the low penetration of banking and other financial products. Today, with new investment products available to Indian investors, India’s role in silver investment has the potential to grow even further.”

Increasing demand for silver in India is good news for the broader silver market.

Based on preliminary data, silver demand in 2022 is expected to chart a new all-time high of 1.21 billion ounces. That would be a 16% increase from 2021.

With mine production only projected to increase by 1%, the global silver market is forecast to record a second consecutive annual deficit in 2022. At 194 million ounces, this will be a multi-decade high and four times the level seen in 2021.

Jim Rickards: Gold’s breakout is central banking’s doing, not inflation’s

Most assets have a poor record over the past year. Gold is one of the few assets that posted a gain — not a major gain, but a gain.

Gold has really taken off since late October, from below $1,630 to almost $1,930 today. That’s a major move. What’s going on?

You might want to argue that it has to do with inflation. The trouble with that argument is that (official) inflation has been coming down for the past few months. Meanwhile, gold seemed to massively underperform with respect to the very serious inflation we saw earlier last year.

So again, why are we seeing a gold spike now? The most likely answer lies with central banks and geopolitics.

Central banks as a whole, led by Russia and China, purchased 399 metric tonnes of gold in the third quarter of 2022. (Fourth-quarter data are not yet available.)

That’s the most gold ever purchased by central banks in a single calendar quarter. It represents over 1% of all the gold held by all central banks combined.

If that pace continues or increases, it would amount to an increase of over 4% per year in central bank gold reserves. …

As we explained a few days ago China and Russia have been importing gold like crazy.  Switzerland is the world’s greatest refiners of gold

We now know that China and Russia have accumulated 50,000 tonnes for the former and 10,000 tonnes for the latter

Switzerland sent 524 tonnes of gold to China last year, most since 2018

LONDON — Swiss exports of gold to countries including China, Turkey, Singapore, and Thailand surged to multi-year highs last year, Swiss customs data showed today, as low prices boosted demand from consumers in Asia and the Middle East.

Rising interest rates caused many financial investors in Europe and North America to sell gold in 2022, releasing large amounts of metal from storage and pushing down prices.

This allowed bullion to flow to Asian markets, which are more focused on retail of jewellery and small gold bars to consumers who typically buy more when prices drop. Economic instability also spurred demand for gold, which many see as a safe investment, particularly in Turkey, where inflation has rocketed.

Switzerland is the world’s biggest gold refining and transit hub. It imports bullion from mines and storage centres around the world for processing and re-export. …

Futures Slide On Ugly Microsoft Outlook, Renewed War Escalation Fears

WEDNESDAY, JAN 25, 2023 – 07:55 AM

US equity futures slumped on Wednesday after Microsoft started off the tech giants’ earnings parade by pulling off the old pump and dump, first jumping on Azure/Cloud results which beat estimates, but then erasing all gains and slumping during the company’s conference call after the company’s guidance disappointed, forecasting slower earnings and weaker demand (separately, hours later customers reported difficulties across multiple regions in accessing Microsoft 365 services, which the company attributed to networking issues). Earnings reports from companies such 3M, Boeing and chipmaker Texas Instruments also reinforced concerns about the health of corporate America and added to investors’ jitters as they await updates from the likes of Tesla and IBM. Fears also grew that a decision to send German and US tanks to Ukraine would provoke an escalation in the war.

As a result, contracts on the tech-heavy Nasdaq fell 1.3% at 7:15 a.m. ET while S&P 500 futures dropped 0.8%, and traded right around 4,000. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index was little changed, leading to mixed trading in Group-of-10 currencies. Treasuries edged higher, mirroring gains in most UK and German government bonds. Brent crude was little changed, while gold and Bitcoin fell.

Southwest promises refunds over snow chaos

In premarket trading, all eyes were on Microsoft which fell after saying revenue growth in its Azure cloud-computing business will decelerate in the current period and warned of a further slowdown in corporate software sales. Amazon and Alphabet also fell in sympathy, dragging other cloud stocks lower (Amazon.com -1.6% and Alphabet -1.1%; Snowflake -3.1%, Datadog -4.0%, Adobe  -1.4). Texas Instruments suffered its first sales decline since 2020 and gave a tepid forecast for the current quarter. Microsoft comprises about 12% of the Nasdaq 100, while Texas Instruments has a weighting of 1.4%. Here are other notable premarket movers:

  • Enphase Energy (ENPH US) declines 4% after it was cut to neutral from overweight at Piper Sandler as demand for residential solar loans dipped more than the broker expected.
  • Precigen (PGEN US) drops 16% after an offering of shares priced at $1.75 apiece, representing a 20% discount to the last close. Proceeds to be used to fund the development of product candidates and for other general corporate purposes.
  • Block (SQ US) declines 4% as Oppenheimer cuts the stock to market perform from outperform, saying the firm looks less defensively-positioned than other payments names.
  • Intuitive Surgical’s (ISRG US) falls 8.9% as the medical tech firm’s quarterly results are overshadowed by the company saying it won’t launch a new multiport robotic system in FY23, which analysts say removes a positive catalyst for the stock.
  • Capital One’s (COF US) slumps 3.3% following the release of results. Its earnings slightly missed expectations and analysts flag a quicker-than-expected acceleration in net charge-offs for the company.
  • Keep an eye on Stryker (SYK US) as it was initiated by KeyBanc at sector weight, which says the US med-tech firm’s valuation “reflects an above-average growth rate with some risk of mean reversion over time.”

A weak earnings outlook, fears of US recession as well as the potential escalation in the Ukraine-Russia war were all contributing to the market pullback, according to Kenneth Broux, a strategist at Societe Generale. “The market is definitely worried about slowing earnings growth especially on tech, so there has been a sense the market wants to keep selling tech and the dollar,” Broux said. “But a huge tail risk now is what happens in Ukraine, if there is an escalation in the conflict and Europe gets drawn into the conflict.”

While today’s drop will hurt, the Nasdaq 100 Index has surged 8.3% this year, on track for the best January since 2019. Expectations that the Federal Reserve will soon pivot away from its hawkish policy have aided the rally, though strategists are increasingly preferring non-US equities this year as they hunt for cheaper valuations and grow concerned about a US recession. Investors are now parsing earnings statements for the impact of the economic slowdown on results.

“The main focus is clearly on US big tech,” said Fabio Caldato, a partner at Olympia Wealth Management. “How can those bulls in a China shop reassure the financial community? Just showing growth. We remain very cautious on this aspect and prefer to underweight the whole sector.”

Next, all eyes will be on Tesla when the electric-car maker reports results after the market closes on Wednesday. Investors will focus on demand, profitability and 2023’s expected pace of deliveries.

In Europe, the Stoxx 600 was down 0.6% and on course for its first back-to-back declines of the year. Shares in major European software firms such as SAP SE and Sage Group Plc. feeling the heat from Microsoft and Dutch chip-tool maker ASML Holding NV falling after posting a profit miss. Here are the most notable European movers:

  • EasyJet shares rise as much as 12% after the budget carrier reported 1Q revenue that was 8% ahead of consensus and projected strong trends will continue into the second quarter
  • Aviva shares gain as much as 3.5%, the most since October, with JPMorgan saying the general insurance underwriting update from the group will provide some reassurance
  • Caverion shares rise as much as 4.1% after the Bain-led consortium increased its offer for the Finnish building-maintenance-services firm following a rival bid from private equity firm Triton
  • Hill & Smith rises as much as 2.2% after delivering an unscheduled trading update guiding to operating profit above expectations, which Jefferies describes as “pleasing to read”
  • ASML shares fall as much as 2.3%, trimming a recent rally, after the Dutch chip-tool giant’s profitability target missed higher Street expectations despite its bullish sales growth forecast for 2023
  • Netcompany shares plunge as much as 23%, the most on record, after the Danish IT consultant’s Ebitda margin guidance for 2023 missed expectations
  • Aroundtown shares dropped as much as 7.4% after Societe Generale cut its recommendation to sell from buy as part of a more cautious view on REITs
  • Gjensidige shares fall as much as 9.9% with analysts saying the Norwegian insurer’s results were weak across the board and that the lack of a special dividend will disappoint

Earlier in the session, Asian stocks headed for a fourth straight daily gain as tech stocks rose amid lighter trading volumes and holidays in China and Hong Kong. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index advanced as much as 0.4% to its highest since early June. Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix were among the biggest contributors to the gauge’s advance as Korea traders returned from the Lunar New Year holidays. “With the global growth outlook narrative shifting more toward a soft landing rather than recession, we are seeing the tech sector come back in favor for now,” said Charu Chanana, strategist at Saxo Capital Markets. “But caution is warranted as inflation risks are back on the horizon with China’s reopening.” 

Tech investors also assessed Microsoft’s second-quarter earnings release, which showed profit beat estimates although the company gave a downbeat revenue forecast. Traders are now turning their attention to Tesla’s result announcement later Wednesday. Singapore stocks led gains in Asia Pacific alongside their South Korean peers.

Japanese stocks rose as investors continued to assess the overall economy and shifted their focus to upcoming earnings. The Topix rose 0.4% to 1,980.69 at the close in Tokyo, while the Nikkei advanced 0.4% to 27,395.01. The yen weakened 0.2% to 130.44 per dollar. Keyence contributed the most to the Topix’s gain, increasing 1.7%. Out of 2,161 stocks in the index, 1,342 rose and 699 fell, while 120 were unchanged.  “Global economic recession risk has declined sharply as China and Europe demand is expected to improve this year,” said Daniel Yoo, head of global asset allocation at Yuanta Securities Korea. “Overall tech demand including capex investments of global corporations isn’t slowing down much.”

Stocks in India fell ahead of the expiry of monthly derivative contracts on Wednesday. Adani Group shares were among major decliners after activist investor Hindenburg Research shorted the group. The S&P BSE Sensex slid 0.9% to 60,404.47, as of 11:09 a.m. in Mumbai, while the NSE Nifty 50 Index declined 1%. All but one of BSE Ltd.’s 20 sector sub-indexes declined, led by a gauge of service industry stocks.  HDFC Bank contributed the most to the Sensex’s decline, decreasing 1.8%. All but three of 30 shares in the Sensex dropped.  All stocks controlled by Adani Group fell after Hindenburg Research accused firms owned by Asia’s richest man of “brazen” market manipulation and accounting fraud. Representatives for the Adani Group didn’t immediately respond to calls and emails seeking comment, saying the company would issue a statement in response later.

Meanwhile, Australian stocks dropped after data showed that domestic inflation accelerated to the fastest pace in 32 years in the final three months of 2022. Trading volumes have been light in Asia this week as markets in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Vietnam remain closed for the new-year break. A blackout period on communications ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee’s policy meeting next week has supported risk appetite, with the MSCI Asia gauge up about 25% from an October low

  • Kiwi dollar was the worst G-10 performer as New Zealand inflation held near three-decade high at 7.2% but undershoot RBNZ’s forecast.

In rates, the risk-averse tone benefited bonds, with UK and German 10-year yields falling by 8bps and 6bps respectively. Treasuries also rose as the Treasury curve bull-flattened modestly and as futures extending through Tuesday’s highs, following wider gains across gilts after soft UK factory price inflation data.  Treasury yields richer by around 2bp from belly out to long-end with 10-year at 3.42%, lagging gilts by almost 4bp in the sector after sharp rally across UK bonds. The US auction cycle resumes at 1pm with $43b 5-year sale, before Thursday’s $35b 7-year notes; strong 2- year auction Tuesday traded through the WI by 1.3bp.

APAC stocks were mixed after the indecisive performance stateside owing to the varied data releases and geopolitical tensions, while the region also digested firmer-than-expected inflation data from Australia and New Zealand. ASX 200 failed to sustain an initial foray above 7,500 with the index subdued by hot CPI data which printed its highest since 1990 and boosted the market pricing for the RBA to continue with its hiking cycle next month. Nikkei 225 gradually edged higher with trade uneventful in the absence of any pertinent drivers although Dai Nippon Printing outperformed after Elliot Management built a stake in the Co. of slightly under 5%. KOSPI was among the biggest gainers on return from the Lunar New Year holiday with the index also driven by strength in top-weighted stock Samsung Electronics.

DB’s Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap

There’s been a little bit of a bias towards risk-off sentiment over the last 24 hours, thanks partly to some weaker-than-expected earnings releases that added to growing concerns about a potential US recession. The S&P 500 (-0.07%) came off its 7-week high from the previous day, oil prices took a sharp turn lower, and sovereign bonds rallied on both sides of the Atlantic. After the close, Microsoft did report better-than-expected earnings due to strength from their cloud-services business (Azure) even as their consumer businesses faltered. Their shares initially traded 4.5% higher before reverting late last night and are now down -1% in after-market trading after news came out during the earnings call that Azure sales could slow in Q1. S&P and NASDAQ futures are -0.46% and -0.78% down respectively as I type.

Those small equity losses in the normal trading session came as the flash PMIs for the US showed the economy still in contractionary territory at the start of the year. To be fair, the numbers were a bit better than expected, but even with the upside surprise the composite PMI was only at 46.6 (vs. 46.4 expected), which is its 7th consecutive month beneath the expansionary 50-mark. Looking at the details, the US PMIs also showed that input price rises had increased in January after 7 months of moderating, so that adds to some other indicators so far this quarter suggesting price pressures might be a bit more resilient than thought. The more negative tone from the data was then cemented by the Richmond Fed’s manufacturing index, which came in at a post-Covid low of -11 (vs. -5 expected).

Although the US numbers continued to point towards contraction, there was some better news from the Euro Area as the flash composite PMI came in at 50.2 (vs. 49.8 expected). That’s the first time it’s been above 50 since June, and came amidst upside surprises in both the services (50.7 vs. 50.1 expected) and manufacturing PMIs (48.8 vs. 48.5 expected) as well. The readings offer yet more evidence that the European economy has been faring better over recent months, echoing the rise in consumer confidence we saw the previous day.

With all this positive news out of Europe lately, our economists updated their forecasts yesterday (link here) and are no longer expecting a recession in 2023 as flagged in our German upgrade two weeks ago. That comes amidst falling gas prices, lower inflation, and declining uncertainty, which means our economists now expect the Euro Area to grow by +0.5% in 2023. They’ve also lowered their headline inflation outlook for 2023 to 5.8%, and now see 2024 at just 1.8%. Nevertheless, they don’t think the ECB can take their foot off the hawkish pedal just yet, since an improved growth outlook and stronger domestic demand raises the threat of more persistent underlying inflation.

Speaking of the ECB, yesterday saw a fresh round of commentary as the Governing Council debate how long to keep hiking rates by 50bps. On the one hand, Lithuania’s Simkus said that “there’s a strong case for staying on the course that’s been set for the coming meetings of 50 basis-point increases.” However the Executive Board’s Pannetta, one of the biggest doves on the council, said that beyond the next meeting in February “any unconditional guidance … would depart from our data-driven approach”. For now, investors are continuing to price in two 50bp moves as the most likely outcome, with +92.1bps worth of hikes priced over the next couple of meetings.

As this debate was ongoing, sovereign bonds rallied strongly on both sides of the Atlantic, with yields on 10yr Treasuries down -5.7bps to 3.45%. That was led by a sharp decline in real yields, which fell -7.6bps on the day. However, near-term policy expectations from the Fed were little changed ahead of their meeting a week from today, and the terminal rate priced for June was down just -0.1bps, whilst the 2yr Treasury yield fell -1.7bps to 4.21%. In Asia 10yr Treasury yields have moved back +1.29bps higher as we go to press. Back to yesterday, and there was a stronger rally in Europe, with yields on 10yr bunds (-5.1bps), OATs (-6.9bps) and BTPs (-11.1bps) all seeing a sharp decline.

As mentioned at the top, it was a bit of a battle for equities, with the major indices struggling to gain much traction after their recent rally. That left both the S&P 500 (-0.07%) and Europe’s STOXX 600 (-0.24%) with modest declines, although that was partly down to a drag from energy stocks after prices took a significant hit yesterday. For instance, Brent crude oil prices (-2.34%) had their worst day in nearly three weeks, falling to $86.13/bbl, whilst natural gas prices in Europe fell -11.71% to €58.27 per megawatt-hour as they closed in on the lows from last week. In the US, one of the worst performing industries for the S&P was Media & Entertainment (-1.02%), whose losses were partially due to the -2.09% pullback by Alphabet as the US Department of Justice did indeed sue the ad-giant under US anti-trust laws. This is the second such suit and a resolution could take years according to legal experts cited by Bloomberg.

Asian equity markets are continuing with their winning streak even with US futures lower. As I type, the KOSPI (+1.27%) is surging as trading has resumed after the Lunar New year holiday while the Nikkei (+0.43%) has rebounded after opening lower in morning trade. Markets in China and Hong Kong remain closed for the holidays. Elsewhere, the S&P/ASX 200 (-0.12%) is in negative territory following disappointing inflation data out from Australia.

Australian inflation rose to +8.4% y/y in December from +7.3% in November while surpassing market expectations for a rise of 7.7%. With inflation pressures broadening, its implication for policy rates pushed 10yr bond yields sharply higher (+5.2 bps) to settle at 3.52%, as we go to print. Meanwhile, the Australian dollar (+0.75%) is trading higher, hitting a 5-month high against the US dollar to trade at $0.7099.

Back to yesterday’s data, and the flash PMI releases were the main data highlight, but we did also get the UK’s public finance statistics for December. That showed public sector net borrowing (ex-banking groups) at £27.4bn (vs. £17.3bn expected), which was driven by more spending on energy support along with higher debt interest. Meanwhile, the latest flash PMIs from the UK weren’t as optimistic as their counterparts in the Euro Area, with the composite PMI falling to 47.8 (vs. 48.8 expected). That’s the lowest reading on that measure in two years, back when the economy went into lockdown again at the start of 2021.

To the day ahead now, and data releases include the Ifo’s business climate indicator for January from Germany. From central banks, the main highlight will be the Bank of Canada’s latest policy decision. Finally, earnings releases include Tesla, Boeing, IBM, AT&T and Abbott Laboratories.

Chip Sales Plunge In China, Buffeting Global Industry

TUESDAY, JAN 24, 2023 – 09:25 PM

Authored by Anne Zhang and Lynn Xu via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Chip sales in China have tumbled at a whopping rate, as productivity in the semiconductor-related sector has contracted dramatically, indicating that the country’s manufacturing industry is shrinking, according to the latest industrial report.

The Washington-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) released data on Jan. 9 indicating that compared to the same period in 2021, China’s chip sales plummeted by 21.1 percent in November of 2022. Meanwhile, in the United States, chip sales rose by 5.2 percent; sales in Europe increased by 4.5 percent year-on-year; and sales in Japan went up by 1.2 percent.Workers producing LED chips at a factory in Huaian, in China’s eastern Jiangsu province, on June 16, 2020.

China’s Industrial Recession Buffets Global Data

According to SIA statistics, in 2021, China alone made up $192.3 billion, or 34.6 percent, of $555.9 billion in global semiconductor industry sales, ranking first in the world.

As the world’s largest chip market, the Chinese market’s sharp decline has dragged down the yield of the global industry, with November 2022 seeing global semiconductor industry sales slide to $45.5 billion. That is 2.9 percent less than the previous month and 9.2 percent less than the same period of the previous year, respectively.

“Global semiconductor sales decreased in November [2022], largely due to market cyclicality and macroeconomic headwinds,” said John Neuffer, president and CEO of SIA.

The SIA represents most U.S. semiconductor companies and nearly two-thirds of non-U.S. semiconductor companies.

Chip Imports Decline

China’s chip imports have faced a serious decline since last October when the United States imposed sanctions on Chinese semiconductor companies.

Chinese customs data showed that China imported 40.5 billion integrated circuits in November 2022, a 25.3 percent drop from 54.22 billion units in November 2021.

Last October, the United States issued a semiconductor and equipment export control order against the Chinese Communist regime. The new ban restricts exports to China of logic chips below 14/16 nanometres, DRAM memory chips below 18 nanometres, and NAND flash memory chips above 128 layers, as well as related manufacturing equipment.

The move could be a heavy blow to a wide range of manufacturing areas, including automobiles, mobile communications equipment, and computers.

Industry Output Declines

In November 2022, China’s output of microcomputer equipment plunged by 27.9 percent; and mobile communication handheld devices dropped 13 percent, including a 19.8 percent decline in the production of smartphones from the same period last year, according to data released by China’s Statistical Bureau.

In addition, the manufacturing of railroads, ships, aerospace, and other transportation equipment, computer, communication, and electronic equipment, and general equipment manufacturing declined 0.9–2.9 percent year-over-year.

Manufacturing Prospects Fall to Record Low

A Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) reading below 50 indicates a contraction in manufacturing and service sectors, according to industrial statistics methods. This gloomy data was seen for most of last year in China.

China’s Bureau of Statistics published a report on Dec. 31 saying that China’s PMI remained under 50 for most of last year, with the exception of January, February, June, and September, which were slightly higher than 50. In the fourth quarter of last year, China’s PMI fell sharply for three consecutive months, with its December PMI hitting a record low of 47.

GERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER just said the quiet part out loud on Ukraine:   she sated that the allies are fighting a war against Russia.

(zerohedge)

German Foreign Minister Just Said The Quiet Part Out Loud On Ukraine

WEDNESDAY, JAN 25, 2023 – 01:09 PM

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock bluntly stated in fresh remarks that Western allies are fighting a war against Russia. The remarks came during a debate at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on Tuesday amid discussions over sending Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

While Baerbock’s words were largely ignored in mainstream media, a number of pundits on social media noted with alarm that the German foreign minister just essentially declared war on Russia.

Ironically other German officials have long sought to emphasize their country is not a party to the conflict, fearing uncontrollable escalation.

Contradicting this official stance, Baerbock said the quiet part out loud, and introduced the comments with: “And therefore I’ve said already in the last days – yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks.”

And that’s when she asserted: “But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”

Interestingly, both Chancellor Olaf Scholz and his former defense minister who recently resigned, Christine Lambrecht, have been seen as weak on arming Ukraine – repeatedly declaring an unwillingness to get pulled deeper into the proxy war aspect to the conflict. But now it seems the more hawkish Baerbock is willing to at this point be much more open with the reality of what’s happening.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova seized on the comments, saying this is yet more proof that the Western allies were planning a war on Russia all along…

“If we add this to Merkel’s revelations that they were strengthening Ukraine and did not count on the Minsk agreements, then we are talking about a war against Russia that was planned in advance. Don’t say later that we didn’t warn you,” Zakharova said.

One thing is for sure, things are moving fast…

Russia Furious Over ‘Absurd, Extremely Dangerous’ Decision To Send Tanks To Ukraine

WEDNESDAY, JAN 25, 2023 – 11:05 AM

As expected, Russia is furious over the decision of the United States and Germany to authorize Western-manufactured advanced tanks for Ukrainian forces, calling it “extremely dangerous” and pointing out the unprecedented decision blows past Kremlin “red lines”.

The Russian Embassy in Berlin communicated to the German government that the dangerous move “takes the conflict to a new level of confrontation.” The statement asserted that it “contradicts the statements of German politicians about the unwillingness of the FRG [Federal Republic of Germany] to be drawn into it [the war]. Unfortunately, this happens over and over again.”Via ReutersAccording to the latest media statements by US officials, the Pentagon is preparing plans to send approximately 30 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine as part of a $400 million deal. While the official White House announcement of the tank transfer is likely imminent, it’s unlikely the tanks will be seen on the battlefield anytime soon.

It takes multiple months to over six months or more to train crews to effectively operate the Abrams. The same could also go for Germany’s Leopard 2 tanks which will be provided. Both are considered sophisticated main battle tanks.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz confirmed his country’s decision to send 14 tanks at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday. Crucially Germany will also allow other countries to send theirs, which is likely to provide the bulk of Leopard tanks. According to the latest from Politico:

Germany and its European partners plan to “quickly” send two Leopard 2 tank battalions to Ukraine — suggesting about 80 vehicles — the government in Berlin announced Wednesday, adding that Germany would provide one company of 14 Leopard 2 A6 tanks “as a first step.”

Other countries likely to send Leopards to the war against Russia include Poland, Spain, Norway and Finland.

Alongside the Abrams, the initial transfers is also expected to include special recovery vehicles which assist in repair of tanks on the battlefield, or else which are capable of removing stalled tanks. 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reiterated that this development shows that Ukraine and the West “has unequivocally stated its desire to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia.” A ministry statement echoed his words in the following:

“There is a hybrid war going on against our country, which Foreign Minister [Sergei] Lavrov spoke about in detail just recently. Arguments about the red lines are a thing of the past,” the foreign ministry told state news agency Tass, in comments translated by Google.

“The United States has unequivocally stated its desire to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia. It is impossible not to notice the reality,” the ministry added, Tass reported.

And separately Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov underscored the “absurdity” of plan by NATO allies to send tanks. He said in a Wednesday briefing, “now we can only state that there are currently no prospects for entering the diplomatic path.”

“Unfortunately, we see a lot of manifestations of the conviction of a number of politicians, a number of experts, the military and so on, who believe that it is by continuing the war that the security of the continent can be ensured. This is an absurd belief,” Peskov added.

Specifically addressing the US and German tank escalation, he said: “I am convinced that many experts understand the absurdity of this idea too. It’s just that, in terms of technological aspects, this plan is quite a failure, and most importantly, it is a clear overestimation of the potential that it will add to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”

The Most Egregious Mistake — Strategic Culture

Robert Hryniak6:22 PM (5 hours ago)
to

Over decades of time, we have seen outright thievery by a corrupt and crooked Federal Reserve acting as the referee of what is called the Reserve Currency; the USD exerting American hegemony by requiring settlement of trade in USD. And the world has watched the Enforcer called Military punish all those who resisted the call, like Libya or Iraq into submission. And with such historical ignorance of yesterday’s empires led to the creation of what is occurring today.

This atmosphere has allowed the fertile growth of fanatical Neocons like Kagan, Nuland, Kristol and many others to espouse and direct actions of State well beyond understanding or capability or capacity to manage resulting in a blindness of Ideological folly not seen in centuries.

The actual egregious act was taking Russia off Swift not understanding that America and combined West has lost its’ manufacturing capability and capacity to support a war effort. It is why the scurrying for artillery shells around the world to send to the Ukraine when no domestic ability to supply on a timely basis exists. What is worse the failure to recognize that America’s so called greatness is much by financial asset activity while manufacturing is only 12% of the economy. In real economies, real production matters. However one might expect fanatics rarely see beyond the nose of hatred and narrowness of pursuit. With no counter in play this group has run a muck while apparently the Biden Crowd  has no moral ability to bail out the direction by having no standing to do so. So a ship now out of control with no visible ability to navigate runs smack into an Iceberg called Russia.

This madness of frenzied fanatical purpose has put at risk not just hegemony but is carrying the USD into oblivion by continuing down a path where a change of direction is required before the ship is too far beyond repair. Because a collapse is not singular to America but to the entire western world we have known. This is the really what is at stake now and time is not friendly to continuance. Frankly, both the Neocons, the Biden crowd and Ukraine have to be throw under the bus for both hegemony and the USD to survive as mainstay player midst a changing landscape of trade settlement in alternative currencies to the USD. And similarly America must use the lessened time, a result of the errors made have produced, to rebuild itself or it will disappear along with the West giving up western control and hegemony to Asia very quickly. The opportunity is Asia is not ready, although eager to try to seize the day. However a continued proxy or direct war with Russia will result in a Western collapse. Each day brings more attention to inherent western weakness and a lack of capability. The sooner the end of this fiasco comes, the better for everyone except those who are benefiting short term. And they have always been expendable in the big picture.

Perhaps, this rolling up of the sidewalks has already commenced to give way to a settlement that allows everyone to walk away licking wounds readying for the either a another round or a change of direction to seek a new model. One imagines that starting to be one’s brother over one’s keeper maybe a good start if one can rebuild in time. As it is time waits for no one. And that will require both a cleanup in aisle one in America and a rebuilding of productive capacity with new technologies. It seems the rolling up of sidewalks started last week with Burns of the CIA visiting Zelensky and seeing the deaths of people since and the corruption previously ignored being brought to light about Ukraine and its’ administration. No doubt American misdeeds will be swept away in the dust.  And European solidarity will become more divided, as divisions are exploited with purpose. Especially, since in late 2021 Russia called for a return of NATO to 1997 border status. This would change NATO dramatically and perhaps for the better for America and not so much for Europe, and would open new opportunities to all actors to pursue.

And while pitiful to watch, perhaps somewhere the lightbulbs have been turned on. Time will tell the tale.

It is puzzling why anyone is surprised by this. The regime in Kiev is principled in the same blood thirst its’ roots held where anyone not of pure blood and the right beliefs should be killed and always discriminated against. There is zero press freedom or even political opposition as it is banned or suppressed. This is not so different than what one might expect to find in North Korea.
Today, on the streets people are picked up and fastened to lamp posts to be made examples of and in many cases simply picked up and thrown into vans to be sent to fight or be beaten or simply disappeared.
How one justifies support for such a regime is mind boggling. But then again,, it is clear that war with Russia is sought to cover the failures and thievery of yesterday expecting a bright outcome. There will not be one. Trying to have a digital IMF currency as a Reserve Currency, another WEF brain wave, will not work and a direct confrontation wit Russia will cause much pain.
There is no wisdom in banging your head against the wall when all you get is headache.

Turkey Angrily Cancels Key NATO Talks With Sweden & Finland

TUESDAY, JAN 24, 2023 – 09:45 PM

As expected Turkey on Tuesday announced it has indefinitely postponed any future rounds of talks with Sweden and Finland regarding their NATO membership bids. 

A major meeting was expected to take place in Brussels in February, but this has been dramatically canceled, Turkish state broadcaster TRT reported based on diplomatic sources. Via AFP

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was supposed to attend the talks, and when it was planned the two countries were widely perceived as very close to their NATO accession being approved.

President Erdogan himself on Monday lashed out at Sweden in particular, blasting Swedish authorities for allowing a far-right activist to burn a Quran in front of the Turkish embassy in Stockholm over the weekend. 

Erdogan stated bluntly that Sweden should no longer expect support from Turkey to join NATO given it allows “terrorists” in its midst. Turkey has also expressed deep dissatisfaction at both Nordic countries’ failure to crack down on Kurdish groups banned by the Turkish state.

Amid continuing Turkish anger, Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto has said a diplomatic “time-out” is now needed in order to reassess. 

At the same time, Finland has suggested it could seek NATO membership without Sweden, after the two earlier indicated a joint membership bid process.

Why Are Millennials Having So Many Strokes?

TUESDAY, JAN 24, 2023 – 10:45 PM

Authored by Ross Pomeroy via RealClear Wire,

Strokes commonly strike the old.

The average age for the devastating condition – in which blood supply to a part of the brain is blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts – is around 71.4 years in men and 76.9 years in women.

Millennials, however, are starting to bring those averages down.

Now ranging in age from 27 to 42, Millennials are suffering strokes at higher rates than their forebears did at the same agereversing a 40-year decline in stroke deaths.

Between 2003 and 2012, there was a 32% spike in strokes among 18- to 34-year-old women and a 15% increase for men in the same age range, according to CDC researchers.

When Scientific American further parsed the data, they found that the hike was mostly centered in the West and Midwest, where stroke rates among young people rose 70% and 34%, respectively, with particularly sharp increases in urban areas. Now, about one in ten people who has a stroke in the U.S. is under the age of 45.

Younger stroke victims

There are many potential explanations for this disconcerting trend. Rising stress, falling physical activity levels, and fewer doctor visits among Millennials could all play a role. One narrative rises to the forefront, however. As cigarette use in the U.S. declined from an alarming high of around 45% in the 1950s to just 12.5% in 2020, all Americans collectively reaped the benefit of less smoke in public places, which manifested in reduced rates of lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke. But since the 1970s, the public health benefits from reduced smoking are being eroded by rising obesity and its related health complications.

Childhood obesity is particularly noxious in regard to early stroke, and Millennials were the first generation to truly be affected by this alarming trend. The rate of childhood obesity more than tripled from 5% in 1978 to 18.5% in 2016, leaving many more children burdened by associated conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, which can lead to a stroke.

There is good news. Thanks to improved medical care, stroke fatality rates have fallen significantly between 1975 and 2019, about 65% for hemorrhagic stroke (caused by a burst blood vessel) and 80% for ischemic stroke (caused by a blood vessel blockage). And with greater brain plasticity, young people are more apt to recover. Still, strokes can leave Millennials with lasting complications, such as occasional seizures, incontinence, cognitive impairment, hindered speech, and diminished muscle control, not to mention a sharply elevated risk of a future stroke.

Increased stroke isn’t the only health issue that Millennials are contending with. The rates of many cancers, especially those tied to poor diet, are rising for people under age 50.

Diet and exercise

The best solution to reverse the rise in early stroke is for Millennials and future generations to eat right and exercise, especially from a young age. Schools and parents have a vital role to play here.

Obesity’s grasp can be hard to break if it takes hold at a tender age, but if healthy lifestyle practices are instilled early, it’s likely they will remain second nature.

Australia Sees Heart Attacks Increase By 17% In 2022 – “Experts” Blame Pandemic

WEDNESDAY, JAN 25, 2023 – 05:45 AM

The public has been bombarded with a stream of news stories in recent months seeking to explain the steady rise of heart attacks in western countries in the past two years.  The epidemic is most concerning due to the large number of young and otherwise healthy people that are being stricken with heart problems otherwise reserved for older or clinically obese patients.  

Explanations for the trend blame everything from video games to climate change.  Of course, these scapegoats do not explain the statistical leap in heart failure in the past two years.  The most common narrative is that the covid virus is the cause – The problem with this theory is that there is zero evidence to support the claim that covid causes potential heart ailments.  In fact, studies show that there is no such thing as “covid heart”, a false concept spread by the mainstream media at the onset of the pandemic.

Are the “experts” baffled?  Or, are they trying to avoid the obvious culprit.

Australia is reporting a 17% increase in heart attacks in the first eight months of 2022 alone, and establishment paid researchers seem to be deliberately avoiding any mention of the covid mRNA vaccines.  Instead, they are continuing to blame covid infection along with numerous peripheral and indirect triggers associated with the lockdowns.  

Multiple studies now show a direct relationship between vaccine status and Myocarditis, specifically in young people, and the attempts to suppress such information by Big Pharma and governments are failing.  If side effects are related to developing auto-immune disorders triggered by mRNA as some researchers suspect, then symptoms in many vaccinated people may not become visible for months or years.  But, as time passes, the extent of the damage will become clear to the public. 

Pro-vaccine studies related to the dangers often do not include unvaccinated people as a control group for determining side effects, which suggests a desire to hide health risks associated with covid vaccination.  Eventually the questions and the deaths are going to become too prominent for the mainstream to ignore.  Are torches and pitchforks the inevitable end for vaccine enforcers and Big Pharma?

KA-BOOM!!! natural immunity WINS again over vaccine in children! Lin et al. “Effectiveness of Vaccination & Previous Infection Against Omicron Infection and Severe Outcomes in Children Under 12 Years”

Study is clear: Children with natural exposure immunity way better protected from COVID-19 infection & hospitalization when compared to vaccinated kids (Omicron or subvariant clade) North Carolina

This study covered all lineages of the omicron variant, including BA.1, BA.2, BA.4, BA.5, BQ.1/BQ.1.1, and XBB/XBB.1.5.

The data appears to show and adds to the existing evidence that those children with natural exposure immunity were much better protected from COVID infection and hospitalization (and I would argue death) than then children who were vaccinated.

Researchers used vaccination records as well as clinical outcomes for 1,368,721 North Carolina residents 11 years of age or younger from October 29, 2021 to January 6, 2023.

Statistical methods used were ‘Cox regression to estimate the time-varying effects of primary and booster vaccination and previous infection on the risks of omicron infection, hospitalization, and death.’

‘For children 5–11 years of age, the effectiveness of primary vaccination against infection was 59.9% (95% confidence interval [CI], 58.5 to 61.2), 33.7% (95% CI, 32.6 to 34.8), and 14.9% (95% CI, 12.3 to 17.5) at 1, 4 and 10 months after the first dose;

the effectiveness of a monovalent or bivalent booster dose after 1 month was 24.4% (95% CI, 14.4 to 33.2) or 76.7% (95% CI, 45.7 to 90.0); and the effectiveness of omicron infection against reinfection was 79.9% (95% CI, 78.8 to 80.9) and 53.9% (95% CI, 52.3 to 55.5) after 3 and 6 months, respectively.

For children 0–4 years of age, the effectiveness of primary vaccination against infection was 63.8% (95% CI, 57.0 to 69.5) and 58.1% (95% CI, 48.3 to 66.1) at 2 and 5 months after the first dose, and the effectiveness of omicron infection against reinfection was 77.3% (95% CI, 75.9 to 78.6) and 64.7% (95% CI, 63.3 to 66.1) after 3 and 6 months, respectively.’

Researchers said the study showed that “previous SARS-CoV-2 infection induced strong immunity against future infection, although the immunity waned gradually over time” and that “omicron infection induced strong immunity in both vaccinated and unvaccinated children.” SARS-CoV-2 causes COVID-19.

Personal communication (electronic) from Dr. Peter McCullough:

‘No vaccine, no matter how theoretically compelling, should be in public use with these symptomatic side effects. Vaccines should have acceptable safety profiles with <5% having any significant short-term symptoms, be safe over the long term, provide at least 50% protection against a disease, inhibit transmission, and last at least a year. Faulty vaccines that underperform or make our kids sick should be rejected by parents and removed from the market to protect public safety.’

Retired US Coast Guard Vice Admiral Pens ‘Open Letter’ On Covid Vaccines, Calling On Other Flag Officers To Fight Mandate

Retired Coast Guard Vice Admiral William “Dean” Lee has written an open letter to his fellow flag officers, calling for the end to the DoD ‘vaccine mandate’.

DR. PAUL ALEXANDERJAN 25
 
SAVE▷  LISTEN
 

SOURCE:

October 3, 2022

‘As many of you know, I have advocated publicly for seven cadets who were recently discharged from the USCGA for failing to comply with DOD’s vaccine mandate.   Each had applied for, and had been denied, a religious exemption.   I have been publicly rebuked, harshly, for doing so.  This letter will explain the facts and circumstances underlying my actions. 

I am not now, nor have I ever been, anti-vaccine.  I took both shots and advised a number of officers and enlisted members who sought my counsel to do the same.  I find no fault in the decisions made by operational commanders at the height of the pandemic who judged it necessary to make the vaccine mandatory.   I would have done likewise.   But, as with any new disease, with time, scientific understanding has markedly increased, treatments for those infected have been developed, and the effects on both the general population and specific cohorts of the population are better known and predictable.  Unquestionably, the risks of prolonged and severe disease, and of adverse outcomes, are now reduced, particularly for those of military age and who are otherwise healthy.  

The American people have moved on.  The President himself has declared “the Pandemic is over.”   Yet, we continue with an outdated mandate and to purge good people, even though we struggle to meet our recruiting goals.   The legality of the order itself is under significant scrutiny, with at least three federal injunctions in place.  The CDC just issued new guidance that advises that the vaccinated and the unvaccinated need not be treated differently.    

It’s time to pause and reevaluate whether, for some demographics at least, the cure has become worse than the (diminishing) disease, and, in the case of the military’s mandate, whether material violations of law have occurred.  Science has rapidly moved forward, but DOD inexplicably is not keeping up.  Vaccine protocols, in practice, require demographic stratification in order to keep up with the science, particularly where the risk-benefit analysis necessarily depends on demographic considerations.

Bringing this issue into the public domain is not easy for me, for I’m keenly aware that I may appear to some to be the dissident in a club that expects blind loyalty and whose rules require that retired Flag Officers go home and shut up, leaving the service in the capable hands of those behind us.  That was my plan.  But I am not blind, and there comes a time when prior leaders should question, and seek accountability of, those responsible for maintaining the core values and culture put in place by the chiefs and officers who preceded them.  I believe now is such a time.    

The men and women in the bowels of the ship are becoming uncomfortable.  Trust is eroding as our sailors question the motives and judgment of those who, despite the evidence, are sticking to a mandate that is no longer necessary; who have resorted to apparently unlawful measures to continue enforcing it; who have embraced a culture with ideologies antithetical to unit cohesion; that divides people into identity groups; and that promotes the acceptance – without question – of flags and symbols that may be offensive to men and women of faith.  They have no voice.  There is shoal water ahead, and the ship’s bridge isn’t listening to the lookouts on the fo’c’sle.’

Bivalent Boosters Creating Adverse Childhood Experiences in Kids Ages 5-11 with Injections that Evoke Symptoms Our Children Will not Forget; Dr. Peter McCullough (John Leake) clarion call: stop shots!

Big praise for Dr. McCullough for he is focusing on an aspect of the COVID fraud gene injection that is failing clinically with no basis as children bring statistical zero risk to the table, near zero

‘Vaccines should have acceptable safety profiles with <5% having any significant short-term symptoms, be safe over the long term, provide at least 50% protection against a disease, inhibit transmission, and last at least a year. Faulty vaccines that underperform or make our kids sick should be rejected by parents and removed from the market to protect public safety.’

Bivalent Boosters Creating Adverse Childhood Experiences in Kids Ages 5-11

By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH We often remember events from our childhood that came from physical experiences such as a broken arm or falling into a stream. Most patients from yesteryear remember childhood rheumatic or scarlet fever. Parents bringing their children age 5-11 years for COVID-19 vaccination may be creating adverse childhood experiences…

Where is Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of CDC? Why is she hiding from the public? Questions are piling up Rochelle, and we need you, so can’t you come out to play? Has Biden BANNED you? V-Safe?

Is it incompetence? Malfeasance? that CDC lies too much & not even the Biden White House can explain the lies? Why are you not in front of us right now as you were initially? Is it 5th or 6th shot?

Which is it Dr. Rochelle Walensky? I have to be honest, I had high hopes for her given her strong resume etc. I was impressed. Yet even that means nothing today for the most Ivy league resumes turned out to be purely incompetent across COVID, corruptible, inept, and purely stupid and easily incentivized to harm innocent healthy people and children with fraud lockdowns and forcing vaccine mandates along with denial of early treatment and natural immunity. Yet I held out hope she would rise above the typical technocrat buffoon. I have been disappointed.

Where are you Dr. Walensky? And as you answer that, can you Dr. Walensky, Director of the CDC, tell me, tell us, why these 15 adverse events of special interest (see table below), which are listed in the V-Safe protocol and survey (that the CDC oversees), were NOT, I say again, NOT included in the actual surveys?

You Dr. Walensky, and all of your people at CDC, NIH, FDA etc. knew, you knew full well that the COVID gene injection (mRNA-DNA platforms and specifically Pfizer and Moderna) was linked to deaths, to serious harms, to bleeding, to myocarditis, to blood clots, to pericarditis, to paralysis and a host of serious conditions up to and including death. You knew it yet it is my contention that you colluded with others at CDC and NIH and FDA to obfuscate and hide the actual data. How else can you explain this? I have looked at the protocol and survey and the low-level symptoms like headache, chills and nausea etc. are listed in a manner ‘in your face’ and would allow for easy tabulation. You then placed the real conditions of interest, the ‘patient-important’ ones at the end of the survey (table below, page 50 of 50 pages). It seems to me, that CDC hid it and you did not collect the information clearly.

Fauci’s NIH Remdesivir was deadly, never worked, failed NIH trial & Fauci is a criminal, a real criminal, FDA EUA was criminal, kidney & liver toxic, criminal to approve for infants, newborns & above

A failed EBOLA drug and for the FDA to approve it for infants 7 pounds and above (as young as 28 days old), January 21st FDA approved it for all newborns, FDA is a criminal agency

Up to 70% of “COVID-19 Deaths” Were Due to Ventilators

January 24, 2023 6:37 pm

In a jaw-dropping article published by the Wall Street Journal, (Hospitals Retreat From Early Covid Treatment and Return to Basics) physicians admit to ventilating patients who did not need it as a step in their protocol – get this – not as a treatment that was likely to benefit the patient, but rather as a fruitless and callous way of attempting to stop the spread of COVID-19. Yes, euthanizing humans is illegal. Especially for the benefit of other patients. It should feel awful. If you are a doctor who has been persecuted for doing the right thing, perhaps you lost your license or it is being threatened, send this Wall Street Journal to your lawyers – and thank you for not acquiescing to the demands that you kill patients on ventilators and with strong sedatives.
