The Truth About Money
If you were ever fortunate to hang out with William Blount aka WB within about an hour to two hours he would have told you to go over to the Saint Louis Fed and pull up a velocity M1 money supply chart. That will give you a true report card on how the current administration is doing.
Now I'm not an economist or a financial scholar with a Magna Cumme Laude? but what WB said made a lot of sense. Not that I know one but I do know a rocket scientist and a jet propulsion girl (and I got some distinct kin on the space program).
The best handle I can get is the velocity of money is the frequency where one dollar is used to buy stuff made here within a given time. The number of times one dollar is spent to buy goods and services in a set unit of time. If the velocity of money is increasing, then more transactions are occurring between folks in the current reality.
- Provides insight into whether consumers and businesses are saving or spending.
- M1 is the money supply of currenty (1, 5, 10, 20 and benjimans), notes and coins, traveler's checks
- Monentarist argue a stable demand for moeny as a function of income and interest rates.
- A stable relationship between the velocity of money and a normal interest rate---short term T bills.
- V = (PY)/M where V is velocity, P is Price Level, Y is real output, and M is measure of the money stock.
From FRED Economic Research St. Louis When you click on it also check out the M2 it's an every more sliperly slope!
Now like I said I do not build rockets for a living I trade for a living so take this for what it worth. You can not carry more than $250 in your picket for insurance if you expect to be reimbursed for your loss. And most folks pay with a credit card or with their smartphone bill pay. So, it seems to me that a graph is going to be on a constant slippery slope? The use of currency is slipping by attrition.Then factor in the inability to make large depots of cash in a US Bank or else you get put on a SCARS list for Sumurfing in this current reality and then on the to next! So what are those bean counters in touch with this reality?
I'm just a trader--in the world but if you want to speak to an economist or at least read a thesis on the "Liquidy", Monetary Policy and the Financial Crisis: A New Monetarist Approach" the check out:
Stephen D. Williamson the Vice President of Research Division Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. And when you are through perusing than you can download the full brief at American Economic Association. Ok in the argument above I forgot to add the bitcoin which you now can add to your IRA.

I'm just a regular guy; Not Silver spoon family or WALL Street / Chicago network or Financial Fast Track educational express superstar golden boy, I have an intimate knowledge of the insider mindset / how the insiders on Wall Street think act and position their trades.
I SEE THE MARKET IN TERMS OF THE COMPOSITE MAN / INSIDER – Most traders look at the market in terms of bulls and bears. This creates a dichotomy. A duality of the mind. Wyckoff looked at the market in terms of Composite Man / “insiders” the combined effect of the bulls and bears. It's the insiders that move the market in terms of news catalysts and offing events---not bulls and bears. I've cloned the mind / vernacular of Wyckoff's thinking and writing approach to the market.
