The stimulation for the next recovery might be even more limited, given the extremes in current leverage and rates.

In this scenario, Gold diverges from the dollar and rallies strongly.
Quote of the Day
The greatest booms unfold when capital concentrates in one sector. When that capital shifts, you also find the result of the greatest financial panics in history.
