November 26, 2019 | A Key Index Faces ‘Moment of Truth’

The New York Composite Index lies within a hair of a trendline that has acted as either support or resistance numerous times since 2017.

November 26, 2019 | The Prospects of Gold’s Next Upswing

While traveling after the New Orleans show, I got to spend a little time with my uncle Bob. He’s one of the most successful businessmen I know. Not coincidentally, Uncle Bob is also one of the calmest, most disciplined, and most thoughtful people I know. He saw that my business cards say “Contrarian Discipline Delivers” […]

So little time. So many questions. Here’s Patient One. Mackenzie. “I can’t recall you ever giving blog advice on how best to set up an RESP,” he says, proving that he hasn’t paid attention in the past. I know I should do it before year end for young Alexander, born last July. Any advice on […]

November 24, 2019 | Flaming Teslas and Other Wall Street Scams

  Wall Street firms often “talk their book” in order to front-run their own customers. You can bet that if a big-time investment house is out on the tape with a bullish forecast for a loser like, say, Uber, they mean to unload the stock, not buy it. An upbeat report from an influential analyst […]

November 24, 2019 | Rights & Wrongs

Some days ago Dominique Walker, 34, and Sameerah Karim, 41, and their kids broke into a three-bedroom suburban home in Oakland, California. Actually they moved in. Squatters.

November 24, 2019 | Muddling for Solutions

This year, I’ve written several times about the 1930s parallels that Ray Dalio and others see with our situation […]
