October 31, 2020 | Do We Really Need More Stimulus to Print More Millionaires & Billionaires, Enrich Fraudsters, Balloon the Trade Deficit? Consumer Data Says, “No We Don’t”

Weirdest economy ever, powered by stimulus money, and the now expired extra unemployment money, and money from rents-and-mortgage-payments-not-made, and money from cash-out mortgage refis of at record low interest rates. And folks “in aggregate” – all mixed together, with all inequalities papered over – are spending record amounts on goods, a lot of which are […]

October 31, 2020 | The Anti-Pope Movement – Will He Be the Last Pope?

There is probably no pope in history who has been so disliked than the current Pope Francis. He is clearly a communist and full on board with the Great Reset. This Pope is a real disgrace. He is preaching economics rather than the faith and is agreeing with Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab on everything […]

October 31, 2020 | S&P 500

October 31, 2020 | Trading Desk Notes For October 31, 2020

There was a very important Key Turn Date (KTD) at the beginning of September when several different market trends all REVERSED direction at the same time. Those reversals set up the market the trends of the past 2 months. (I’ve circled the KTD in all of today’s charts.)   My trading in September and October […]

October 30, 2020 | Joe Biden and Stock Market Returns

A “clean sweep” on November 4 for Joe Biden and the Democrats looks increasingly possible. To get a “clean sweep” Biden would win and voters would give Democrats a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. What would happen to stock markets? Jimmy Carter won a clean sweep in 1976, after the […]

October 30, 2020 | Hunter Biden & the Plot to Cover it All Up

QUESTION: You have been silent on the Hunter Biden story. Would you care to comment sometime? DN ANSWER: I try to be cautious because this is the most corrupt election in history. I was skeptical because about two months before there was sent to me a 64-page document that was claiming a connection of Joe Biden to […]

October 30, 2020 | Loonie, Oil and Canadian Financials, All in This Together

After bouncing 10% between March 20 and September 1, the Canadian dollar continues its allegiance with risk assets, dropping 1% against the US dollar today and rolling over at the 74.50 resistance range, highlighted in my partner Cory Venable’s chart below since 2007.  A restest of the March low in the .67 area (pink band […]

October 30, 2020 | Into the Swamp

A few scant days before the US election and volatility’s spiked again. See the chart below – the VIX – which measures how many Tums, per trader, are popped on the world’s major stock exchanges, divided by quarts of gin consumed. It’s wicked accurate. The VIX has spiked the most since mid-summer and will likely […]

October 29, 2020 | Rockefeller Family Tells Banks to Stop Funding Fossil Fuels

These people are absolutely insane. They think they should stop all fossil fuel produce now and leave cars stranded and eliminate any way to distribute food. I suppose they will suddenly realize that there are not enough horses and wagons to bring food to them in New York City. There is a real problem here […]

October 29, 2020 | Corporate Tax Receipts Must Rise From Here

Large corps have long-lobbied for preferential tax treatment and government subsidies because they are ‘job creators.’  In reality, automation and off-shoring have been reducing their employment rolls steadily.  As globalization has allowed multi-nationals to position head offices in the lowest tax zones, countries, states, and provinces have raced each other to the death for the […]

October 29, 2020 | The Big Plan

My, my. A third of Canadians tell pollsters they’ll “never” recover from the Covid crisis. Four in ten say they can’t withstand a second wave. As many state their financial lives have totally sucked since March. Worst hit? Those in their forties and fifties. Half say recovery is impossible and they’re already depleting savings to […]

October 29, 2020 | The Trading Life: Sizing Your Trades Oct 29, 2020

You can never have enough on when you’re right.   I just closed out some “risk off” positions (short stocks, Euro and gold) that I’ve had on for most of the past 2 weeks. I caught some good moves, especially short stocks, and I decided it was time to take profits. It was one of […]

October 28, 2020 | Flu Death Down Two-Thirds – CDC Admits Hospitals Have Monetary Incentive to Call it COVID

Flu deaths are down two-thirds from the five-year average thanks to COVID-19. The corruption is self-evident. When you pay hospitals for all expenses if the patient has COVID-19, suddenly the flu is cured, and COVID-19 surges. The same drastic decline in flu cases has taken place in Britain. The CDC has admitted that providing incentives […]

October 28, 2020 | Tough Times Are Full Of Opportunity

Cutting unnecessary operating costs is always smart, but being able to do so during a big hit to income can be the difference between survival and bankruptcy. Like most municipalities, the City of Kitchener spends millions on electricity each year.  In 2011, they invested in 2600 solar panels atop their operation facility at the site […]

October 28, 2020 | The Opportunity

What do we make of a few ugly days on the markets? Well, speculation grows a certain American president that this blog cannot name (until after  Wednesday) may not cede power if he loses the vote on November 3rd. You might wish to read this. Could it lead to conflict in the streets, while the virus […]

October 28, 2020 | Have Plummeting Stocks Sniffed a Biden Win? Here’s a Bullish Explanation…

Stocks have gotten hit hard this week.  Have investors perhaps caught a whiff of a possible Biden victory and the damage he and his socialist running mate would inflict on American businesses and the middle class? That’s one explanation, and I raised the possibility here numerous times over the last several weeks that it could […]

October 28, 2020 | Big Questions About Net Zero

We’re still awaiting the rules and regulations that the federal government is drafting to execute its plan to achieve net-zero emissions in Canada by 2050. Industries and resource projects from coast to coast to coast know they will be compelled by 2050 to eliminate or offset greenhouse-gas emissions, but how?   The draft rules and […]

October 27, 2020 | Anti-Lockdown Protestors Are Being Called Conspiracy Theorists

The fourth anti-Lockdown protest erupted in London once again. Wikipedia, the leftist controlled pretend neutral media platform, has compiled a list of lockdown protests in the United States. They immediately characterize this as right-wing “conservatives,” which implies, I suppose, that the obedient majority are just sheep who do as they are told and question nothing. […]

October 27, 2020 | The U.S. Federal Reserve Has Made Itself the Hero

SAN MARTIN, ARGENTINA – With only seven days to go to the presidential election, investors are getting edgy. Yesterday, the Dow sold off by as much as 900 points, before bouncing back to end the day down 650 points. What’s the trouble? Party On Hold For one thing, people look up at the sky. They […]

October 27, 2020 | Drawing Your Line in the Sand

Choices. We are living in world historical times and, like it or not, the choices that we make over the next few years will have profound implications for the future of the human species. Whether or not to wear the mask. Whether or not to take the vaccine. Whether or not to get the health […]
