Each day, I read the headlines in the mainstream news, I follow my email, and read as many articles as I have time. I’ve done so for several years, primarily as a prerequisite for hosting daily radio shows. Over those several years, I’ve developed an intuitive awareness of the “velocity” of news. That is, on average, there’s been about the same number of stories, the same “quantity” of news each week for several years.
But starting this last January, I’ve had the distinct impression that the “velocity of news” had accelerated by, say, at least 30%. I have no evidence to support that impression. It’s just a subjective feeling. But that feeling has been so persistent that I’m inclined to believe it’s real.
Based on that increasing “velocity of news,” I’ve come to suspect that “something big” is now very close–maybe just weeks or a couple of months away. Again, I have no evidence other than “gut”. I could easily be wrong.
We recently witnessed the 2-day plunge in the price of gold. That was pretty “big” but I don’t believe that’s the “something big” that I’ve been anticipating. Instead, I suspect that there’s more coming and possibly soon. But, again, I could be wrong.
