January 31, 2018 | Market Fails to Register Trump’s Optimism

A fresh dollop of stale news from the Fed sent stocks into a swoon Wednesday, but the bullish finishing stroke seems unlikely to dispel whatever has been troubling Wall Street this week. The latest pronouncement from the central bank left rates unchanged but preserved the option of raising them later in the year. It was […]

January 31, 2018 | The Dow Down & Dirty

COMMENT: OK Mr. Armstrong. Looks like the government was right. You come out and said the Dow reached a turning point and it crashes. You posted: “In the US Share Market, this is now a turning point we have reached. I have warned for months that exceeding the November high would lead to a January high.” You […]

January 31, 2018 | Amazon, Buffett, JPMorgan Team Up on Healthcare: Hot Air or Real Deal?

Three high-power firms agreed to take on rising healthcare costs. Sceptics abound. Can they succeed where others failed? The technological announcement of the year is Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Team Up to Try to Disrupt Health Care. Three corporate behemoths — Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase — announced on Tuesday that they would form […]

January 31, 2018 | Paper Dollar vs Virtual Dollar – the Difference!

The above image represents our historical PAPER dollar (printed by the BEP)! The paper dollar only represents some 5% of all monetary transactions.    The VIRTUAL dollar (now 95%) is not paper or physical but derives from a banksters inner MIND! According to the Coinage Act of 1965 (the last word on what is official […]

January 31, 2018 | How to Stop Worrying

Love him or hate him (even his wife can’t decide), Trump’s been catnip to the markets. Last year the Dow romped 25% higher with the S&P not far behind. More than 5,000 points piled on the DJIA and it’s recently pushed through the 26,000 mark. Historic. There’s more. America added 2,000,000 jobs last year. The […]

January 31, 2018 | Bond Bear Due For Hibernation in 2018?

Tax cuts and hope for accelerating economic growth, inflation and interest rates in 2018, have rendered an even wider than usual consensus that treasury prices can only go down from here.  January did see a further sell off in government bonds and gap higher in yields. And this did increase the cost of borrowing for […]

January 31, 2018 | Washington’s “War on Washing Machines”

CORK, IRELAND – The U.S. president gave his assessment of the situation last night. No mention was made of the fact that the country is going broke… …or that rising interest rates threaten the fake-money system… …or that tax cuts, along with additional military, infrastructure, and entitlement spending, will surely bring on a financial calamity… […]

January 31, 2018 | How Crude Oil Exports Pay Canada’s bills

Canadians enjoy the sixth highest standard of living in the world. This single largest factor behind this is our ability to export crude oil. At a time when some politicians are focused only on spending priorities, it is critically important to remember that every dollar out requires a dollar in. Crude oil – including oil […]

January 31, 2018 | Plunging Stocks to Push Gold Higher? Fat Chance!

The bearish case for gold continues as fresh new bearish confirmations have just emerged. You have already read about gold’s huge weekly volume, gold stocks’ underperformance and many other factors. Yesterday’s session provides us with even more bearish details. But, there’s one thing that looks promising for gold bulls – the possibility of a big […]

January 31, 2018 | How Did That Get Into My Bond Fund??

Towards the end of financial bubbles, people who previously paid little attention to things like “quality” start trying to figure out what they actually own. The result is either funny or terrifying, depending on the point of view. This time around bonds are (finally) getting a closer look. From today’s Wall Street Journal: Decade of […]

January 30, 2018 | You May Soon Be Able to Regrow an Arm or Leg?

The Mexican axolotl salamander can regrow lost limbs in a matter of weeks which includes the bones, muscles, nerves and the whole enchilada. When scientists sought to map its DNA to figure out how it does it, to their shock, it turned out to be more than 10 times bigger than that of human DNA. Indeed, it […]

January 30, 2018 | A Bull Market in Big Brass Ones

When we compliment someone with a lot of courage, we say he has “big brass ones” or “a lot of brass.” But what is brass, anyway? There are no brass mines. So how do you get this metal? The answer to that question contains some real profit potential … Likewise, when someone gathers their courage […]

January 30, 2018 | What Trump Won’t Say in His Speech Tonight

PORTLAW, IRELAND – In sex, war… and fake-money systems… no one stops to count the costs until it’s too late. You can quote us on that, Dear Reader. POTUS will deliver his State of the Union address tonight. After the president’s speech, Stormy Daniels, the porn star with whom The Wall Street Journal claims he had an […]

January 30, 2018 | The Unloved

Over the next few days and weeks expect lots of ink on what a mess real estate’s turned into. Once the media gets tired of manshaming, it’ll be houseshaming time. Bad sales numbers, falling prices, moisters moaning they paid too much last spring and wrinklies trapped in properties they were too dumb to sell in […]

January 30, 2018 | Plummeting Stocks Provide a Long Overdue Breath of Fresh Air

Tuesday’s nearly 400-point decline in the Dow Industrials was a long overdue breath of fresh air. We shouldn’t assume it is the death knell for the nine-year-old bull market, however, since money managers with their economic lives at stake need only buy a handful of stocks in concert to turn things around. Even so, we’ll […]

January 30, 2018 | The Valuation Cycle Strikes Back

In the final stages of every market cycle, asset classes that have gone up on excess liquidity, leverage and speculative fervor, come down together all around the world.  As screens of red in global financial markets attest this week, historic correlations remain alive and well today; probably never more so. Yes, cryptocurrencies too.  Portfolio diversity foiled (thanks […]

January 30, 2018 | Crypto Bloodbath Amid Widespread Equity and Bond Carnage: VIX Breakout

The cryptocurrency selloff continued along with strong pullbacks in equities and bonds. The VIX is on the rise. The top 20 cryptocurrencies are all in the red as of 1:50 Central. Only ten of the top 200 cryptocurrencies are in the green. This corresponds to a broad market selloff.​ Commodities Selloff Small Gold is down […]

January 30, 2018 | Trading Desk Notes – Jan 27th

From the Desk of Drew Zimmerman The USD was the talk of the town this week, if you were in Davos that is. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin gave a “weak dollar” statement that the market jumped on, pushing the USD index down to lows we haven’t seen since the end of 2014. Trump has since tried to […]

January 30, 2018 | THE Week. THE Record. THE Extreme Sign for Gold

To say that gold’s weekly volume was big is like to say that snails are not the fastest animal. You can’t say that it’s a lie, but it doesn’t really convey the entire truth, either. Gold’s weekly volume was highest EVER. Yes, ever. There was not a single week – not ever during the 2011 […]

January 30, 2018 | We Are No Longer a Nation of Laws! Why?

America is No Longer a Nation of Laws; in Fact, It’s No Longer a Nation America was founded on the concept called the Rule of Law. In other words, LAW is supposed to govern over the Nation and everyone is supposed to be equal before the Law. This concept is now no longer valid. We […]
