European Dis-Unity (E.D.) – 2016 is one 40-Year Cycle from 1976 – when Britain needed an IMF bailout of the Pound – and is when a myriad of colliding cycles spells trouble for the UK & EU. 2016/2017 is projected for a new Euro crisis and was just corroborated by bad news for Spanish & Italian banks – in April & May – precursors to June’s vote on Brexit. What’s next?

“The Clash of Cycles III
In January 2016 (Trader’s World Issue #62), this author wrote The Clash of Cycles II & reiterated analysis from June–Dec. 2015 – concluding that 2016 would be The Golden Year…That analysis had been detailed in INSIIDE Track throughout 2015 and was emphasized when Gold & Silver triggered 3–6 month buy signals in mid-Dec. 2015. Those signals reach (initial) fruition in June 2016.
While the actual price action is very important, more noteworthy is what a move like this often portends…
Action like that is often a harbinger of instability & uncertainty in financial markets… and/or a waning faith in fiat currency (of which the Dollar is NOT the worst). It is also often an omen of geopolitical upheaval. There are several cycles that are projecting all of the above – in the near future…
A Third 8-Year Cycle
There is another intriguing 8-Year Cycle …This one involves Britain/UK and is worth discussing in light of next month’s (June 23) vote on their continued inclusion in the EU.
One of the intriguing aspects of this cycle is its larger-degree multiples – both an 80-Year Cycle AND an 800-Year Cycle… all pinpointing 2016/2017 for watershed events in the rise and fall of the British Empire(s)…
3 of the latest 4 phases (1968, 1976 & 1992) – of the 8-Year Cycle – involved Sterling-bashing.
8 years later, in Sept. 2000, it was an inflationary debacle – on the heels of the Pound declining for 8 years (to its lowest low in 13+ years)… The plummeting Pound created chaos as the 8-Year Cycle continued to wreak havoc!
8 years later, in Sept. 2008, the UK joined the rest of the world in a global economic meltdown as the Pound was again pummeled, dropping about 35% in 14 months and to its lowest low since 1985.
1960, 1968, 1976, 1984, 1992, 2000, 2008… an uncanny, 8-Year Cycle at work!
Could another UK financial crisis be about to emerge… Could the Sterling be in for another pummeling??”
Next month’s Brexit vote could trigger a domino-effect in Britain, Europe and around the globe… leading to an(other) expected pummeling of the British Pound and a sell-off in global equities. But, that is likely to be just the first/latest step… and a mere precursor to what is likely to unfold between now and 2018/2019.
