Deutsche Bank announced that it will create more shares and sell them at a 35% discount. Existing shareholders are not happy and in the first four days since the offer was announced, the value of existing shares dropped by 13% as shareholders began sharing off their shares.
Why would Germany’s largest bank do something so drastic? In recent years, the bank like other large American banks, has been involved in countless arbitrations, litigations, and regulatory proceedings as a result of its fraudulent activities, including the manipulation of markets and currencies. Having been found guilty, Deutsche now owes $7.2 billion to the United States Department of Justice and still are on the hook for an additional $10 billion litigation bill. Despite what the mainstream media reports, Deutsche bank is broke. Even if Deutsche sells the new shares, the $8.6 billion they hope to generate will not be able to keep them from filing bankruptcy.
Deutsche lost nearly $2 billion in the last two years, instituted a hiring freeze, cut bonuses by 80%, and are now facing a $2.5 million civil penalty from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for failure to report transactions and have been downgraded.
The German government claims they will not bail Deutsche out and under the EU agreement, they are prevented from doing so. It is likely that an extinction event is on the horizon despite the billions of dollars it has made from fraudulently foreclosing on thousands of American homes and selling heavily discounted stock.
It is noteworthy that Deutsche is the bank that funds the Euro system, which they can now no longer do. Deutsche is ten times larger than Lehman Brothers, the American bank that engineered the loan crisis and was dissolved in 2008. Also, 90 percent of Deutsche’s revenue is derived from derivative trading- the same activity that destroyed Lehman.
If and when Deutsche Bank crashes, some analysts predict that four major US banks would be expected to become insolvent in a matter of days. And the fallout would impact the entire United States economic system. Despite the fact that the mainstream media is reporting that home sales are up, inventory is down and the housing market is in full recovery, other economic events paint a more negative scenario. For example:
Foreign governments have been selling US Treasuries back into the US market at the fastest rate in history (thus predicting a future devaluation of the dollar).
The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 was intended to end the possibility of future quantitative easing. However, it legalized the bail-in, thus authorizing banks to confiscate customer’s deposits. In other countries where a bail-in has been implemented, governments also seized pension funds, retirements, etc., The government then issued shares in a failing bank or a bond, then proceeded to default on the bond.
The stock market is in a larger bubble than in 2008 and is overdue for a crash.
Derivatives, which triggered the last major crash, are now at a higher level than in 2007 before the housing market tanked.
The petrodollar is in decline and countries are implementing other currencies like the Chinese PetroYuan.
On March 15th, the US hit its debt ceiling and can no longer legally continue to borrow money. It’s estimated that the money remaining in the Treasury will be exhausted by June 1st. After that point, if no major money infusions don’t occur the US government ceases to fund itself, its many agencies, and its entitlements.
Meanwhile the federal government is more concerned with destroying a Syrian runway that creating a contingency plan to operate the government.
This isn’t a matter of if? but when? Does anyone remember how quickly the market crashed in 2007-2008? Americans tend to have short memories. It is amazing that our great-grandparents and grandparents that lived through the depression never forgot what it was like. Most were scarred for life by the experience of financial trauma. It is not unusual to see people who lived through the Great Depression save everything they have ever owned and have active emergency plans ready.
It has only been ten years since the market crashed and most Americans have completely forgotten the lessons from the crash. Many homeowners who lost one home to foreclosure eagerly jumped in to buy another in a once-again inflated market. Anyone who is dependent in any significant way upon the government, financial institutions, and/or American financial markets should be on guard. Furthermore, if you have a home that you know you can sell for premium dollar right now in a market driven by low down payments and low interest rates- you might want to downsize and simplify. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
