Mr. Michael Pento serves as the President and founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies. He see's a deflationary collapse. Pento said the bond market would ultimately begin to collapse in his 2013 book titled “The Coming Bond Market Collapse.” He says the collapse has started and will continue to get worse quickly.
Pento is watching Europe and says, “When the European Central Bank (ECB) announces they are going to take the $60 billion a month of easing and take it to zero, you are going to see a bond market revolt. The free market, whatever is left of it, is going to aggressively start shorting bonds. You will see yields spike in Europe, which is going to drag up bond yields across the globe. That’s when this thing will all unravel and unravel very, very quickly.”
In closing, Pento predicts, “The stock market is a bubble. It’s going to fall at least 50% for starters and before Janet Yellen gets to helicopter money. You better be ready.”
