August 31, 2020 | Parksville & Qualicum Beach in BC, Canada Outlaw COVID Restrictions

COMMENT: In a historic act of direct democracy last night, the Oceanside Common Law Assembly (OCLA) passed a Public Safety Bylaw that prohibits COVID restrictions and mandatory distancing, masking, quarantines, and vaccinations anywhere in the communities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach on Canada’s west coast. As of today, anyone who tries to impose COVID regulations […]

August 31, 2020 | Nesting

Ottawa. Victoria. Niagara. Kelowna. Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Mississauga, Burnaby, Etobicoke, Abby and PoCo. It’s the same story everywhere. House sales exploded in July and August. Prices have risen to meet demand, since inventory levels in most markets were at a Covid low. Logically, this is nuts. Unemployment in Canada is north of 10%. In […]

August 31, 2020 | Cost-Cutting is a Necessity with Many Legs

The COVD-19 shock is unfolding in phases.  The first was the global shutdown and market collapse into the end of the first quarter. The second was a bounce in economic data and asset prices into the summer as central banks and governments unleashed monetary and fiscal support and businesses reopened. The third, now unfolding, is […]

August 31, 2020 | Greater Fools Dive into AAPL Following Split

AAPL didn’t waste any time demonstrating why DaBoyz split it four-for-one, effective Monday morning. The stock was up a scandalously undeserved $6.18 at one point, or more than 5%, although the gain was not nearly as noticeable as it would have been prior to the split. The pre-split rise would have been $24.72, making it […]

August 30, 2020 | Extreme Gains

The best way of approaching silver is to hold it on a fully paid-for long-term basis, as I believe the gains will be dramatic enough to make up for passing on the lure of margin. I am particularly intrigued at this time by what I perceive to be the short-term set up in silver. We’re […]

August 30, 2020 | The Birth of the Cashless Society

As we all know by now, the entire corona crisis was and is an excuse for The Great Reset. And, as anyone who has followed the financial prognostication space for the past decade knows, “the great reset” has been used nearly interchangeably with “the global currency reset” to describe the collapse of the old dollar-centric Bretton […]

August 30, 2020 | Prepare

Chrystia. Justin. Taxes. A trillion in debt. Biden-Trump mashup. Second wave, maybe? Mortgage deferral cliff. Millions on the dole. BLM in the streets. Cops defunded. Statues falling. Vigilantes. Masks protests. Historic deficits. 847,659 deaths. Closed borders. And a real estate boom. Oy, whadda world this is. The afflicted believe governments should support them. The paleos […]

August 30, 2020 | Quiet Strength

Index futures and bullion have opened moderately higher Sunday evening, suggesting DaBoyz are in no hurry to lighten up on inventory.  I’ll weigh in later this evening when there is more evidence to judge the mood of investors, but at the moment, they seem quietly confident. I have provided some ambitious rally targets in my […]

August 30, 2020 | Light in the COVID Tunnel

If you ever think you just can’t win, I know how you feel. I’m labeled both a doomsayer and a Pollyanna—sometimes in reaction to the same letter. In fact, I am neither. I used to be the “muddle-through” guy who acknowledged difficulty but expected eventual success. Recently I modified that to “stumble-through,” acknowledging today’s more […]

August 30, 2020 | Warren Buffett Admits He Doesn’t Understand This Economy

Iconic investor Warren Buffett’s superpower is the ability to understand how companies work and tell which will generate the most and most consistent cash flow. This has (along with, yes, some recent gaming of the system) allowed him to make his investors rich beyond most of their wildest dreams. But the world we’re heading into […]

August 29, 2020 | Dow Jones Utilities Breaking Trend

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS: Dow Theory suggests indices must confirm each other and volume must confirm the trend. The new downward trend in the Dow Utilities Index suggests indices are starting to break apart in terms of trending in unison. Volume recently has been trailing lower, which suggests the momentum behind these new all-time highs is weakening. […]

August 29, 2020 | The Worst Case Scenario Arrives

Canadian banks have yet to feel the full impact of loan losses in this recession. Quarterly earnings for all Canadian banks appeared this week and showed hints of what is to come, although extreme outcomes were not reflected. Are bank earnings showing the full impact of the current recession yet? In May 2019, the Bank […]

August 29, 2020 | Trading Desk Notes August 29 ,2020

Since the February All Time Highs we’ve had the shortest bear market ever…followed by the fastest recovery to a new record high in over 80 years. We’re very lightly positioned at the end of the week…thinking that September may bring some serious reversals across markets. Don’t be short volatility!   The Nasdaq 100 has rallied […]

US Debt a short on the US Dollar

August 28, 2020 | What 2020 Has Taught Us

SAN MARTIN, ARGENTINA – Unbelievably, August is almost over. Summer has all but adjourned. The leaves are turning and the gavel is coming down. And what have we learned? What is the verdict? It doesn’t matter whether you lock down or not. A face mask probably doesn’t help. Americans are easily panicked. They readily tyrannize […]

August 28, 2020 | Hydroxychloroquine Is Being Suppressed to Keep COVID & Climate Change Agenda

There are so many doctors now coming out against Fauci and Bill Gates who have been trying to stop people from using Hydroxychloroquine in order to keep the real agenda going – destroying the economy to recreate it GREEN – Great Reset. I have stated how my cousin was on the front line of nurses in New Jersey and she […]

Shinzo Abe to ResignAbe, age 65, will resign because of an intestinal condition.  The ruling Liberal Democratic Party controls a majority in Parliament, which elects the prime minister so there will not be an election.

August 28, 2020 | ReThinx Update: Rapid Total Energy Transformation Underway

We’re on the cusp of the most profound disruption of the energy sectors in over a century. We’re not facing a slow energy transition, we’re facing a rapid and total energy transformation and it’s already begun. The disruption is inevitable (for economic reasons), existing coal, gas, nuclear and other assets are stranded. No new investments […]

August 28, 2020 | CBs and Thee

The biggest impact central banks have for most people is setting the cost of money. That’s called interest. It’s what you pay to get money or the amount you receive when you lend it. The CBs in Canada and the US for decades have worried about inflation, as it jacks prices and wages making money […]

August 28, 2020 | Expanding Wedge May Prompt Big Price Correction – Could A Big Top Be Setting Up Right Now?

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS: The Monthly S&P500 E-Mini Futures chart is revealing an Expanding Wedge pattern that has been setting up since Jan/Feb 2018. The VIX has set up a base and begun to move moderately higher over the past 7+ days – above the 20.00 point level and above the GAP created by the initial COVID-19 selloff. […]

August 27, 2020 | Trudeau using COVID to push his Green Agenda in Canada

The National Post headline: “Trudeau’s ‘brutal’ attempt to use COVID to push his green agenda” is confirming that this is not about COVID where 175,000 deaths out of 328 million in the United States is a death rate of 0.000535%. You do not destroy the economy and people’s futures, pensions, and employment for such a […]
