Predictions made by William Stickevers on January 1, 2017 in the Global Outlook 2017 Webinar

Trouble for the Chinese Yuan

“Emerging markets are vulnerable on two fronts: capital outflows in response to higher interest rates in the U.S.; and trade restrictions that will hurt economies that depend heavily on U.S. markets.  That spells trouble for Brazil and China, which statistically have the highest negative rate.” (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Emerging Market Collapse Begins

We’re going to see an emerging market collapse occur.  We see things unravel big time in March and the spring, and then really come to a head in the summer. 

Look at China’s economy, it’s falling apart.  The Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto alignment is hitting the Chinese Jupiter.  Transiting Neptune is on the second house cusp, opposing the Chinese Saturn in the eighth house of its debt.  So you have to realize that Trump is planning to invoke a trade war.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Russia Resurgent, Capitalize on Opportunities

You have a resurgent Russia.  2017 will be a year of opportunity for Russia.  It will capitalize on those opportunities.  Some sanctions against it will be lifted by Trump.  Europe is going to change its position with Russia.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Russia Going To Confront NATO

Russia is going to confront NATO and that’s something Trump is going to have to deal with.  So Russia flexes its muscles and no doubt it will certainly do what it has to, to assert its hegemony in the region. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Russia Going To Be More Aggressive in the Baltics, with Turkey and certain Eastern European Countries, Expansion

Russia is going to be much more powerful, much more influential.  It’s definitely going to shape the policy, especially in Eastern Europe, it’s going to be much more aggressive in the Baltics, with Turkey, with certain countries in Eastern Europe.  So Russia’s on a big expansion comeback.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

European Referendums

In 2017 when the French and Dutch vote for their new prime ministers, it will set the stage for a series of Euro referendum votes later in the year.  First with the British Exit, then with Trumpzilla, then the Italians reject with a referendum, then will be France, followed by the Netherlands.  They’re all trying to escape the grasp of the European Union. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Italian Banking System Busting, Nationalization, Populist 5-Star Movement Gain More Power

The Italian Republic banking system is busting all over the place.   Look at Pluto opposing the Venus-Saturn of the Italian Republic chart.  So we have Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto in the second house, Saturn moving into the second house, opposing the Venus-Saturn. 

The banks are going to be nationalized.  The government will not be able to hold the banks, the populist five-star movement will gain more power in Italy.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Deutsche Bank – Massive Liquidity Crisis

Deutsche Bank is sitting on a large pile of non-performing loans and has $72.8 trillion in derivative contracts connected with those underperforming loans, an amount that is 20 times greater than the German GDP, and it has a leverage ratio of 40 to 1.  At the time of its collapse in September 2008, Lehman Brothers Holdings had a leverage ratio of 31 to 1.  Deutsche Bank in Germany has a 40 to 1 leverage.  So you have to realize, if Deutsche Bank goes down, they cannot save it and if things do not improve, we could see a massive liquidity crisis across the globe that begins the derivatives unwind.  It will be much bigger than the Lehman collapse.  Deutsche Bank would trigger a systemic banking contagion, the likes of which the world has never seen before.   Look where it was, at $10.  This is one of the largest banks in the world. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Another Crisis – Boom and Collapse of the Shadow Banking System, the Debt Bubble, Housing Bubble, the Dow Jones

Look at where we are now in November 2016. We have this square aspect.  We’re seeing the boom and collapse of the shadow banking system, the debt bubble, the housing bubble, the Dow Jones. 

We’re seeing a beginning emergence of another crisis. Here’s Jupiter and Pluto on March 30, 2017, Jupiter exactly opposing Uranus on the midheaven.  And so in terms of how it has an impact on the markets, when Jupiter is in a backwards square from Pluto, that the stock keeps going down ten days before the aspect to roughly eight days after the aspect.   And this is a huge difference, from the 90-degree square opening where the DOW went down five times and up one time, compared to the 90-degree opening.  So basically what we’re seeing here is downward pressure, astrological correlations are showing we are looking for a market top around the time of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction.  That doesn’t mean the market collapses exactly.  But it indicates we’re hitting the top, and then after that the support levels drop dramatically.  

At the same time interest rates keep heading north in 2017.  With the head of the Federal Reserve saying, “Don’t worry, the interest rate hikes have already been baked in.”   With a $20 trillion debt bond, and the stock market all down here with the cake.  So you can see people know what’s coming.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Trump vs. The Fed

What’s going to happen, is Trump will fire everyone, he’s going to muzzle the Federal Reserve, the Federal Reserve is going to be under massive stress.  This probably is a period when he will evoke major measures he’s going to enforce new policies.  He’s already said what he’s going to do.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Gold to Rise

Gold starts making major moves in 2017.  Because there’s going to be inflation, stagflation, hyperinflation, and deflation which has been ongoing since 2007; we’re going to have all of that.  At the same time a lot of prices will be inflationary or hyper inflationary at some point as they go back to printing money or using certain protective measures to keep the economy going.  We’re also going to have deflation of debt and deflation of the bubble assets that the credit bubble has created.  So debt will implode and property values and stocks will begin to decline rapidly. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Iran Enters the Global Economy in 2017

Basically Iran enters the global economy in 2017.  I do not see an overthrow of the Iranian government.  I believe we will see an election and the conservative politicians will still be in power.  They’ll still be beholden to a supreme leader who distrusts the U.S.  But these politicians who will come in in March will understand that they need to re-enter the global economy and therefore they will increase oil production with China and Russia intervening and protecting them, regardless of the unsustainability of the fake Iran nuclear deal. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Israel Retain East Jerusalem and Maintain 1967 Borders, Trump to Rescue, Israel Bolder with Foreign Policy Military

Israel … I don’t see this Palestinian State taking off the way everyone thinks it will.  The blackbox is very positive for Israel.  I believe it will retain East Jerusalem and maintain 1967 borders.  I think Trump will come to the rescue.  He is basically firing the UN team, he told the head of the UN, “Things are going to change.”  He’s coming to the rescue of Netanyahu.  That’s where that’s going.  I see Israel as emboldened again, it will assert itself, it will assert U.S. policy on Iran.  So you will see Israel acting much bolder in its foreign policy military prowess than it has by this date next year. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Saudi Arabia Economic Crisis

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is basically running out of money, it’s going to start defaulting.  You’re going to hear the word ‘default’ early this year. 

There are layoffs happening all over the place, there’s a 70 percent decline in oil for the past 18 months.  There’s massive austerity throughout the nation including the rich.  They’re emptying their pools, all these architectural projects have come to a grinding halt.  Large scale projects are in a slump, everything is breaking down.  The filthy rich are no longer driving gas guzzling SUVs.  At the same time, their oil reserves — Russian news reported that their Ghawar Field, the largest oil-producing field in the world is running out of oil after 65 years of continuous production.  They’re going to employ the CO2-EOR (Carbon Dioxide Enhanced Oil Recovery) process to extract the last of the field’s oil.  A recent Citigroup study suggests that Saudi Arabia is going to run out of oil by 2030, maybe even earlier.  So that will really shake things up. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Turkey Moving Away from EU, NATO and Turning Toward the Shanghai Cooperation Organization SCO

Turkey undergoes an existential crisis.  The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is really Turkey’s version of Adolph Hitler.  Since he assumed power in 2014, he’s become extremely ambitious and nationalistic. 

Erdogan has been setting his geopolitical sights on the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).   He’s a dialog partner with them, strategic deals have been cut for the Russian gas transit and Chinese investment.  For all practical purposes it seems that Turkey has increasingly been moving away from the European Union, moving away from NATO and turning toward SCO.  This is going to be the thing to watch, what Erdogan does.   His outrageous behavior and acting unilaterally in dealing with the Syrians in their crisis is very telling about that’s going to happen in 2017 as things really begin to unravel. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Spanish Government “Collapse”

Look where Pluto is going through, right through Spain. We could see a collapse of the Spanish government, or bond market, or economy. (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

U.S. To Confront Beijing in South China Sea

U.S. ready to confront Beijing in the South China Sea. This is a black swan event that could erupt.  The reason why I say that is look at the geodetic Pluto right in the South China Sea.  Look at the geodetic Mars, right within orb of Pluto.  And Uranus, Jupiter, and Pluto are all by the South China Sea. 

I don’t know if you’ve been following this, but things are starting to get hot.  China has installed anti-aircraft weapons, all types of weapons, built islands in the South China Sea.  They’ve basically told the U.S. to stay out of there.  Trump signals he’s ready to confront Beijing on territorial issues there.  (William Stickevers, Jan 1, 2017)

Trump Administration

We look at the fact that the annular solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 is one of the most significant eclipses because it’s at 28° Leo.  The eclipse path cuts through the United States which implies civil strife and terrorism.  It’s also conjunct the U.S. President’s chart.  Trump has Mars and his ascendant at those degrees.  It’s also an eclipse that is conjunct the fixed star, Regulus, one of the royal stars of Persia.  The 1979 eclipse at this degree coincided with the fall of the Shah of Iran.  And this eclipse equals to the Mars-Saturn and Sun in the U.S. national horoscope and this eclipse will conjunct the ascendant Mars of Donald Trump.  So this is certainly going to stress-test the new administration and the style of leadership.  Look at the eclipse path going right through Washington, with Sun-Moon-Saturn conjunction.  So big changes are coming to the United States, bigger than what a lot of people are ready to handle or can accept.
