November 28, 2018 | Fed-Induced Short Squeeze Clinches December for Bulls

Wednesday’s monster rally was just the beginning of a surge that can end only when the last die-hard bear has thrown in the towel. Although the short-covering panic goosed stocks into the clouds, the wild-blue-yonder, blow-off phase lies just ahead. Hundreds of stocks, most crucially AAPL, lifted from the danger zone, shifting the herd’s tiny, […]

November 28, 2018 | Housing Bubble Popping Again?

Home prices are precarious to a deflating debt cycle in the US, Canada, Austrailia, New Zealand, the UK, Hong Kong, Sweden, and…well pretty much everywhere that humans have used excessive debt to drive up realty prices far beyond income growth over the past decade.  See:  The U.S Housing Boom is Coming to an End, Starting in […]

November 28, 2018 | Gold Joins the Decline – the Earth is Shaking

Gold, silver and mining stocks declined in a quite visible way yesterday, which is in tune with our previous expectations. In the previous days it was only silver and miners that declined in a meaningful manner, but yesterday gold joined them, making this a sector-wide decline. Is this the groundbreaking decline that we have been […]

November 28, 2018 | Home Sales Plunge, Trade Deficit Spikes, Fed Blinks

Looks like we just hit an inflection point. So far this morning: U.S. new home sales drop to more than 2-1/2-year low (Reuters) – Sales of new U.S. single-family homes tumbled to a more than 2-1/2-year low in October amid sharp declines in all four regions, further evidence that higher mortgage rates were hurting the […]

November 28, 2018 | Scientists Want to Synthetically Create a Volcanic Winter – Are they Just Nuts?

  Believe it or not, pretend Scientists are actuall proposing to create a synthetic Volcanic Winter by spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere the same as a volcanoe when it erupts. These pretend research scientists at Harvard and Yale universities have published in the journal Environmental Research Letters proposing to inject an aerosol (SAI) to reduce […]

November 27, 2018 | USA v Euro Capital Flows

  QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your forecast that the capital flows would shift from the EU to the USA I believe has been confirmed by both the European bond markets and share markets. The German DAX is trading below the low created in 2017 while the USA is trading above it. Is this confirmation that your […]

November 27, 2018 | Global Slowdown will Extend into 2019!

The elites who run our planet with their various digital money operations are now finding that their past policies of easy credit and counterfeit QE must be reversed (at least to a degree). This change in thinking at the TOP will create this coming slowdown and eventually a crash in these digital markets. Change happens ‘at […]

November 27, 2018 | Amid Automotive Turmoil, Resources Keep Nation’s Trade on Even Keel

Government moves to restrict wealth-building resource activities have grave consequences as the automotive industry sheds jobs. For Canada’s top 10 export products in 2017, results were mostly positive as 7 of the 10 recorded an increase in exports during the year. According to federal government publication Canada’s State of Trade: Trade and Investment Update – 2018, […]

November 27, 2018 | Bitcoin Near Support, Bitcoin Cash Crash: Where to from Here?

Technically speaking, the chart of Bitcoin looks god awful. Each bounce has been feeble compared to the prior decline. The above chart is from yesterday but it hasn’t changed much. Bitcoin is $3797 as I type. It bounced from around this level a couple days ago to $4125 and here we are again. The first […]

November 27, 2018 | More on Why Product Sales Must be Separated from Financial Advising

Financial sales firms will never ‘get’ the sacrosanct importance of holding professional advisors to a fiduciary standard because masquerading sales as advising is such a lucrative business model for them. The crash of 1929, the decade of loss and suffering thereafter and the revelations of the Pecora Senate hearings of 1932-34, made this vividly clear […]

November 27, 2018 | The Escape

Over the course of eight years as a hired financial gun I spoke an average of 100 times every twelve months, before deciding running a blog was a helluva lot simpler (and so much more glamorous). From crystal hotel ballrooms to grimy church basements with a borrowed bedsheet as my projection screen, I saw the […]

November 27, 2018 | The Cost Of Insurance Is About To Jump

The argument over whether we’re in for global warming or global cooling and whether what’s coming is natural or human-made is fun but totally irrelevant from a financial perspective. The fact is that for whatever reason and in whatever direction, the climate is getting more aggressive. Monster snowstorms and apocalyptic fires are clearly becoming more […]

November 26, 2018 | Central Banks Looking at Creating Their Own Cryptocurrencies

The IMF has recommended that all Central banks should issue their own cryptocurrencies. Indeed, they are looking at using Block Chain to keep track of taxes and to enforce negative interest rates with cryptocurrencies which would allow them to impose negative interest rates whenever necessary. With adopting cryptocurrencies that governments would control, we will come one step closer to losing all […]

November 26, 2018 | Marijuana Blockchain—Double Bubble Trouble

A MarketWatch story about the collapse of India Globalization Capital (IGCC), a blockchain pot stock, caught my eye yesterday. The article details many red flags. My favorite was that a distributor’s store locations in major cities around the world all showed maps of Central Park in NYC, and, “Its address is listed as Sesame Street.” […]

November 26, 2018 | Investors Are Going to Get Scalped

BALTIMORE – We spent a delightful, long Thanksgiving weekend in the country, entertaining children and grandchildren. Not once did we open our laptop computer or look at the headlines. But now, it is another workweek, and we’re back on the job. As usual, we are looking at dots… and wondering how they got to be […]

November 26, 2018 | Energy Innovation Powering Forward

Once humans commit to finding them, there are no problems only solutions. In the quest to go green, Scotland is way ahead of the rest of the UK, with nearly all electricity produced by wind power.  In October, 98% of Scotland’s electricity was produced by wind turbines, with the devolved government on track to produce […]

November 26, 2018 | GM to Close 8 Plants, Lay Off Close to 15,000 Workers

Things are worse than widely thought in the auto industry. Today, GM provided the proof. GM will close 5 North America plants, another three elsewhere. GM claims it does not see a downturn but will Slash Nearly 15,000 Jobs anyway. Four factories in the U.S. and one in Canada could be shuttered by the end of 2019 […]

November 26, 2018 | A Mechanical Solution for Fear and Doubt

I advised subscribers who got long in AAPL Monday to take partial profits on the $4 rally that ensued, since you never know. Although my latest update for the stock raises the possibility the rally is just getting started, we shouldn’t rule out the equally plausible scenario that AAPL is about to get hammered again. […]
