Get ready for a potential blastoff in the US stock market as all-stars are beginning to line up for an incredible upside price rally.   The Fed, taking a warning from the markets and the global economy, has decided to leave rates unchanged for now.  It appears they have moved to a more cautious stance in […]

January 31, 2019 | When Gold Breaks $1,400, It May Be Too Late to Profit

Uranium prices are up another 10 cents this week. The US is meeting with China in Washington, hoping for progress on the trade war, which could boost all commodity prices. On the other hand, Italy is in recession—and EU powerhouse Germany might be as well. There’s a lot going on that affects resource speculators, and […]

January 31, 2019 | Too Big to Bail, Too Big to Jail: Italy in Recession With Very Troubled Banks

January 31, 2019 | AAPL/AMZN ‘Tag Team’ Designed to Fool the Rubes

The stock market’s masters have been working AMZN and AAPL like a tag team, pressing one into service when the other lacks the energy to goad stocks higher. That surely describes the current dynamic. DaBoyz short-squeezed AAPL for a third straight day, more than offsetting the drubbing AMZN is getting tonight on a downbeat earnings […]

January 31, 2019 | Pause before the storm?

The fact that the US Fed has determined that real rates above 0.5% are a threat to both economic growth and 2% inflation, suggests the economy is not ‘in a good place’ but extremely fragile. Here is a direct video link. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said in prepared remarks that the central bank would use its […]

January 31, 2019 | Us & them

Politicians. Used to be one, of course. Learned a lot. (a) You’re most popular on the day of your election. After that it’s a steady fade. (b) People rarely vote for you. They vote against the other guy. (c) Talk about ‘us’ and ‘them’ a lot. It always works. (d) Tell people what they want […]

January 31, 2019 | Sudden Sentiment Shift: The Mainstream Rediscovers Precious Metals

January 30, 2019 | General Economy points to Recession but Stock Market points to Prosperity! Why?

Consumer confidence is down, the Baltic Dry Index is down some 37%, but home sales are up (exceeding 2006 highs), earnings are moderately up, trade with China is mostly down, Europe is slowing, Venezuela is in a depression, Trump and Pelosi continue their polarization, Central Planners trade our markets daily, and the Dow Index goes up […]

January 30, 2019 | The Desperate

Nobody actually knows how many families are being driven into the rapacious arms of the sub-primers. But it sounds like lots. And what a price they’re paying. For example, a report out of Calgary this week cites 6,000 applications being made to a single MIC (mortgage investment corporation), with people desperate to borrow funds at […]

January 30, 2019 | Bogus Rally Unites Powell and Trump

Well, there you have it: the most brazenly bogus rally in the history of the world. Are these guys good, or what? The fix was in even before Powell declared Wednesday afternoon that the Fed would be “patient.” (Now there’s a word that will reverberate through economic history!) AAPL’s and Boeing’s handlers had already gotten the jump […]

January 30, 2019 | Powell Now a Fully-Trained Puppy Happy to Please Master Market

The Fed will be patient. Gradual increases went out the window. Gee who coulda thunk? The Fed did not hike today as expected. Investors hoped for the the word patient and the FOMC Statement said just that. “Consistent with its statutory mandate, the Committee seeks to foster maximum employment and price stability. In support of these goals, […]

January 30, 2019 | Recessions Loom, Will Gold Boom?

KINGSTON, NY, 30 JANUARY 2019—What a difference a year makes. Last January the mood at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where the business elite and world leaders meet, was upbeat. Back in 2018 equity markets were flying high, global economic growth was strong… and they were cheering President Trump and his business-friendly policies. Beyond […]

January 30, 2019 | On the Front Lines in Nicaragua

RANCHO SANTANA, NICARAGUA – We got here yesterday, after the usual travel indignities. What we like about Ol’ Billy, our daughter’s blind dog, is the way he bears his afflictions with grace, which is the best any of us can do. He asks for no special treatment. He doesn’t expect to board the aircraft first or […]

January 30, 2019 | When is Printing Money Deflationary rather than Inflationary

QUESTION: It seems the Left Wing Progressives in the US House (opponents of Pelosi) have adopted the Money Market Theory of Prof. Stephanie Kelton of U of MO.-Kansas City to justify unlimited deficit spending of the US Govt. OK as the Govt. can finance its deficits by unlimited currency printing. Would you please comment. Thanks and […]

January 30, 2019 | US Equity Market Recovery Hinges On The Next Move

The research team, at The Technical Trades Ltd., has been calling this market move quite accurately.  We made predictions on September 17, 2018, that called for a -5~8% downside market rotation, followed by price support just before the November 2018 US elections.  After that, we called for a deep “Ultimate Low” price rotation to setup […]

January 29, 2019 | Gold is Whispering … are You Listening?

I have been recommending gold positions to my subscribers recently … and I’m poised to add more. Because gold miners are whispering to us right now. And they are saying: “Prices are going higher. A LOT higher.” This all relates directly to the things I’ve been pounding the table about recently. The economic timebombs about […]
