March 31, 2019 | Apple’s Not So Secret Electric Car Plans: Apple Hires Tesla’s Powertrain Head

March 31, 2019 | AAPL, AMZN Warning Bears to Back Away

As much as I’ve distrusted the stock market’s presumptive bear rally every inch of the way, the charts of two bellwethers, AAPL and AMZN, look too bullish at the moment to assume the sky is about to fall. AAPL in particular has been unstoppable and looks like it could hit a $212 target 12% above […]

March 31, 2019 | The Bear Tax

April Fool’s, fellow beavs. Monday brings a fat little tax increase that most of us will be powerless to avoid. Unless you stop driving. Or flying. Or heating your house. Or taking hot baths. Showers. Or cooking your food. Or buying food, for that matter. In fact anything involving energy will cost more if you […]

March 31, 2019 | Recession Signs Everywhere

This month, the Federal Reserve joined its global peers by turning decisively dovish. Jerome Powell and friends haven’t just stopped tightening. Soon they will begin actively easing by reinvesting the Fed’s maturing mortgage bonds into Treasury securities. It’s not exactly “Quantitative Easing I, II, and III,” but it will have some of the same effects. […]

March 31, 2019 | ADL Predictions For Price of Gold

As we’ve been suggesting for months, expect continued moderate price weakness in Gold and Silver through most of April 2019 and possibly into early May 2019 before a strong price rally will setup and push Gold prices well above $1500 before the end of 2019.  Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning predictive price modeling system has been […]

March 30, 2019 | Japan’s Emperor Is Abdicating. Here’s What It Means.

Sometime this weekend, the cabinet members of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party will be locked in a room without communication devices of any kind.

March 29, 2019 | Are 95% of Bitcoin Trades Fake?

  QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I love the fact you always stand in the middle. Do you believe that 95% of Bitcoin Trading is fake? Thank you KL ANSWER: I did not conduct that study.

March 29, 2019 | Palladium Bubble Pops—A Red Flag for Other Metals?

Last February, I wrote that palladium could be 2019’s Bitcoin bubble. All the talk about the Chinese buying more cars with palladium catalytic converters (pollution control devices) flew in the face of reports of declining car sales in China. And that’s not to mention the lightning-fast adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in China. This week, […]

March 29, 2019 | Investors Can’t Resist the Smell of Garbage

With central banks around the world ready to hit the panic button, investors are scrambling desperately for yield ahead of the next orgy of global easing. How desperate are they?

March 29, 2019 | The Stretch

“Thought you might get a kick out of this Garth,” says Tom, in Toronto. “Condo pre-con at University/Dundas asking for over $1,750/sq.ft.  280 square foot studio closet for $500k. Ha!” It’s true, believe it or not. You, too, can live in a garden shed-sized concrete box in downtown Toronto for $489,900 plus closing costs, property […]

March 29, 2019 | Who In Their Right Mind Would Lend Money To Chicago?

When you see that Italy’s debt is rising, the logical question is, who the hell is dumping good money after bad into such an obviously failed state? The answer is that by lending money to Italy (or Greece, Portugal, Spain, or France) you’re really lending money to Germany, since the latter will have to bail those other […]

March 28, 2019 | The Upside of Falling Bond Yields

There is a tidal wave of trouble washing around foreign markets, and it will send cash surging into my favorite sectors in the U.S. It promises all sorts of profit potential if you catch that wave.

Western Canada’s oil sector continued in 2018 to be the foundation stone of national prosperity. That’s why innovation is so important for our future.

March 28, 2019 | How the Feds Sedated American Capitalism

GUALFIN, ARGENTINA – A Diary Dictum: People are neither always bad nor always good, but always subject to influence.
