You probably think that banking data is boring stuff. And it is, mostly. Except for one thing.
Hidden in that data are secrets about the amount of money available to drive stock and bond prices.
If you know where to look, that information can be extremely useful to you for making money in the stock and bond markets. Even more importantly today, it can help you to keep what you’ve made. I’ve been tracking this data for my readers for years. I know where to look, and I give that critical information to you in these pages whenever it’s relevant.
For instance, every week, the Fed issues a report on the total balance sheet of the US commercial banking system. It comes out just 9 days after the date covered by the statement. Not only does that make it timely, it’s chock full of useful information hidden among the hundreds of line items.
I ferret out those hidden gems for you.
These gems don’t give us exact market timing, but they do help show us the context for the current market trends, and whether they’re likely to continue or not.

The ECB has been cutting its QE program. It will end all bond purchases in December. Its balance sheet will start to shrink. That will translate to a downturn in deposits. Watch out for that. It’s bad news for the US stock market.
Here’s How You Can Still Profit!
Now I have been telling you for months to get out of stocks and bonds and to protect your capital by buying T-bills as the interest they pay continues to rise. Meanwhile, there have been some wild swings in the market over the past 10 months. While you may be preserving the bulk of your capital in T-bills, there’s money to be made by trading the swings, both up and down, using a small portion of your capital. Let’s call that your trading capital or risk capital.
My colleague, Tom Gentile, has one of the best methods I have ever seen for using your risk capital to potentially extract profits from the swings in individual stocks, regardless of the market’s direction! It’s called the Money Calendar. To learn more, click here.
