July 31, 2018 | How $9 Trillion Disappears

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – As a republic matures, it slides down-market… The rails are silently greased by the cronies and grifters who control policy measures for their own benefit… while the rabble rallies to campaign slogans and admires TV idols. The media – dependent on the mass of consumers for ad sales – sinks, too… stooping […]

July 31, 2018 | The Little Tweet That Could?

Things continued to get worse for the gold market through the dog days of July. We’re all playing “how low can it go” now. The only good news in the gold market is that the bearish positioning is now almost as extreme as the bullish positioning in the US Dollar market. We’re overdue for some […]

July 31, 2018 | Canada Global Warming Tax up to $1,000 per Household?

I have been warning that Global Warming is profitable for governments. They paid these academics $1 billion to come up with dire forecasts that ignore nature, cycles, and history, all to justify taxing people that will never actually impact anything nor balance their budgets. Canadian households in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia will be hit with […]

July 31, 2018 | Mayday

Oops. Odds of another rate hike this sizzling summer jumped Tuesday with the latest economic data. Seems millions of indebted, rabid beavers can’t stop borrowing and spending money, buying stuff and goosing economic activity. Plus oil’s been on our side. The result: in May the economy grew a half a point (that’s big) and year/year […]

July 31, 2018 | US Stock Market Sector Breakouts Taking Place

Now is the time for traders to really pay attention to the rotation in the US Stock market as well as the continued price rotation in certain sectors.  As we have been warning for the past few months, this really is a stock pickers market.  Take a minute to review our past articles highlighting these […]

July 31, 2018 | Trump Takes on the Fed

The president has criticized Federal Reserve policy for undermining his attempts to build the economy. The best way to make the central bank serve the needs of the economy is to make it a public utility. For nearly half a century, presidents have refrained from criticizing the “independent” Federal Reserve; but that was before Donald […]

July 30, 2018 | Some Terminology for Students of our Digital Markets!

  Recently a friend of mine asked me to provide him with some terminology and descriptions for today’s digital markets. His education was from prior years of education (prior to the crisis of 2008). He asked that I update him on terminology and the changes which have evolved mostly since 2008. So here goes: Money has […]

July 30, 2018 | Going, going…

Mr. Market giveth. He taketh away. And so we have the story of star-cross’d lovers from the GTA’s exotic exburbs who bought a house from plans in a faraway land (Barrie), then got pooched. File it with the sobs-and-shudders tale of young buyers of Mattamy Homes in the east end of the Big Smoke who […]

July 30, 2018 | “Free Stuff”: Medicare for All Cost Pegged at $32.6 Trillion for 10 Years

Cost estimates for “free stuff” are pouring in. The sticker price for “Medicare for All” is shocking. “Medicare for All” sounds great. And every unthinking socialist wants it. But here’s the deal: ‘Medicare for All’ Would Cost $32.6 Trillion Over 10 Years. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” plan would boost government health spending by $32.6 […]

July 30, 2018 | Q2 GDP vs. Technology Concerns vs. Foreign Markets

This past week has been very interesting in the US markets for a couple of reasons.  It is time we took a hard look at what to expect going forward and how this news will likely drive future market moves. First, the Q2 GDP number came in as a huge boost to the US economy […]

July 30, 2018 | How the Republic Ends

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – “The real question is whether the new dictatorship is one of the right or the left. I think the left is the bigger danger.” A friend, who prefers to remain anonymous, had asked us to imagine what would happen if there were a disputed result in the next presidential election. Could the […]

July 30, 2018 | A Bell Rings to Announce The Top

Morgan Stanley is out with a scary forecast for August, warning of the biggest stock-market drop since supposed inflation fears caused shares to plummet in February. This time, the thinking goes, market participants have simply run out of good news to look forward to. For one, there’s a strong chance corporate earnings have peaked. Still […]

July 30, 2018 | What is a Superposition Event

Socrates wrote about a Rare Superposition Event took place last week in the Dow. They can take place at all levels of time and can be on a closing basis or on an intraday basis. This is the 43rd such event on the weekly level in the Dow since 1914. You can read more about […]

July 30, 2018 | Gold Stocks’ Breakdown, Platinum’s Invalidation, Gold’s CoT and Seasonality

And so it happened. After a breakdown that might have appeared accidental as it was triggered mostly by one company’s decline, we saw a weekly close below the key 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level in the HUI Index. There was no analogous breakdown to new lows in gold and silver, but what happened in these markets […]

July 29, 2018 | Is CNN Creating a Civil War?

COMMENT: From Europe, we are looking at your CNN and it really has become just propaganda and fake news. I was not a fan of Trump, but I have to say, he has done a great job probably better than any world leader. He has revised trade and has turned North Korea while your unemployment is now below […]

July 29, 2018 | Prediction Markets Arise on the Blockchain

So, you know how decentralized technologies are making it possible to do things that were completely impossible before? Like creating uncensorable information storage and retrieval networks or circumventing the gun laws of the would-be tyrants? Well, how about if it could also allow you to bet on anything? And I mean anything. Doesn’t sound so amazing? Well, what if we’re […]

July 29, 2018 | FAANG Stocks Finally Lose Their Cool

The aging bull market has grown much more difficult to handicap now that the FAANG stocks have lost their cool. Two of them, NFLX and FB, got slammed last week on news suggesting that subscriber growth was weakening. Then, on Friday, AMZN reversed a rally sharply, unable to hold gains following an upbeat earnings report […]

July 29, 2018 | The Guardian

Should somebody be allowed to commit financial suicide? If it’s your mother? Or your aging husband? This is a difficult topic for some people. Especially those who just don’t understand it, and think nobody ever, under any circumstance, should be allowed to act on their behalf. Jacob was one of those guys. He died three […]
