China is going to emerge as a powerful player in 2016. They are manipulating the market causing panic. They have so many negative feelings toward us that I hear they are willing to take themselves down in order to take us down as well. Two things that really hurt the US are the stock market and oil. Both of those things are being focused on right now.
The thing I see down the road as things are manipulated are the cost of good rising. This will range from food to everyday household items. I hear a "penny saved is a penny earned" so if you can stock up on things you use everyday, you are really benefiting yourself.
Be cautious and involved if you do have investments. Live in awareness (but don't focus on fear).
I have attached some previous readings on the economy here in which I reference the "Christmas tree."
I see a couple things with this. I get that debt in general is at an all time high. Between various loans (mortgages, vehicles, student loans) and credit cards, more and more people are finding themselves in a hopeless debt.
We are also moving toward a cashless society where things are on credit cards (which further reinforces my first point and why it is getting so bad). I see that there is going to be an overwhelming trend to move society cashless (disconnects people from "money" where they are more apt to spend more) and create more and more personal debt.
People that can afford to pay this debt will do so, and people that won't will find themselves in foreclosure (and other types of collection situations). Some banks will make out with this (via interest) and some smaller banks will collapse. I see another government bailout happening, but in a more creative way (like passing another quantitative easing..??) which ultimately devalues and puts the dollar in further peril.
The dual part of this was for Iran to find the ship, create tension and have them fire at the US ship. This would give the US immediate cause to escalate actions.
I see the leader of Iran being irate at the US when some kind of barrier agreement was broken. He wanted to show drastic consequences, but it was the advisers he works with that talked him down. They realized that if they fired upon this US military ship it would be certain war for their country and give the US a reason to occupy (and take control of / manipulate the oil and oil trade routes). The US would also be able to rally the people behind this, so diffusing the situation was the best plan that Iran could take.
I am left hearing the phrase that "it is back to the drawing board for them"....
And that is all I have for this reading. Thank you. Love and light-
