January 31, 2022 | How to Protest Successfully: The 2022 Freedom Convoy

  The 2022 Freedom Convoy is underway in Canada as countless truckers have gathered in Ottawa, forming a gridlock. They have a clear agenda and request — repeal all COVID mandates, now! Prime Minister Trudeau cowardly went into hiding before the truckers arrived and now conveniently claims he tested positive for the coronavirus yet again. […]

January 31, 2022 | Truth is Like Poetry

To the dismay of prospective home buyers hoping for a cool down in the nations housing market, Bank of Canada governor Tiff Macklem left interest rates unchanged this past week. It was an odd move considering a 25bps rate hike was already priced into the markets, and there would have been no justification needed, given […]

January 31, 2022 | Fourth Turning 2022 – Bad Moon Rising (Part Three)

In Part One & Part Two of this article I laid out how those in power have used the power of propaganda and the psychology of fear to weaponize a flu to further their Great Reset agenda, while ensuring an economic and financial collapse through the issuance of trillions in unpayable bad debt. In Part […]

January 31, 2022 | Ponzi-Finance Losing Believers–Not Just in China

China’s economy is struggling as its outrageously leveraged property sector, which has driven some 25% of its GDP growth over the past decade (and the lion share of global commodity demand), works through a well-earned bust cycle. After years of raising funds through bond issuance to yield-desperate buyers, Chinese property developers are heavily indebted and, […]

January 30, 2022 | King Kong of Cupertino

Last week’s pointless gyrations did little to dispel the notion that the bull market is over. The vicious short-squeeze in the final minutes of Friday’s session only added to the impression that rallies are being stage-managed to suck in rubes. The hallmark of a bear market is un-shortable upthrusts, usually occurring at times of the […]

January 30, 2022 | So Goes the Year?

You’ve heard the old stock market adage, “As goes January, so goes the year.” If so, 2022 will be a wild ride. Of course, in this context “wild” doesn’t necessarily mean a loss. But it could, and given the well-documented human tendency to buy high and sell low, actual investors could easily lag behind even […]

January 29, 2022 | Arizona Sells Over $1.23 Billion of Marijuana During First Year of Legalization

The state of Arizona saw $1.23 billion in sales after legalizing recreational marijuana one year ago. This figure does not include December’s final reporting. Medical marijuana accounted for $703 million in purchases while recreational produced $528 million. The state will collect over $196 million on those earnings, with a good percentage going to education. The […]

January 29, 2022 | Doug Noland: Prepare For A Volatile Few Weeks

Excerpted from Doug Noland’s January 29 Credit Bubble Bulletin: No one can seriously believe the ‘Fed Put’ has met its maker. It’s this murky new strike price that will create restless nights. What will it take in the markets to force another big pivot from the Fed Chair? And what are the consequences if he […]

January 29, 2022 | Trading Desk Notes For January 29, 2022

Reassessing The Fed = Market Mayhem On January 15, the lede for my TD Notes was: “Peak Fed Hawkish – Or Minsky Moment?” Since then, particularly since Wednesday’s Fed meeting, price action would tell you that we’ve had a “Minsky Moment” – that the Fed is a LONG way from Peak Hawkish. I’m taking the other side of that […]

January 28, 2022 | The End of Easy Money is Near

The Federal Reserve has been promoting asset bubbles for years. This easy money policy has created a series of booms, widened income and wealth inequality and added massive debt to the system. This week the Fed signaled it is ready to end this misguided policy. Will the Fed have the backbone to stop promoting asset […]

January 28, 2022 | Retail Inflows Confirm Market Bottom Nowhere Nigh

With a global market cap loss of some $9 trillion this month, stock markets have their worst January on record.  Under the surface of market averages, 49% of S&P 500 companies, 76% of NASDAQ, and 82% of the economically sensitive small-cap Russell 2000 stocks are now off more than 20% from recent highs (courtesy of […]

January 28, 2022 | Fed Comments Help To Settle Global Market Expectations

The recent Fed comments should have helped settle the global market expectations related to if and when the Fed will start raising rates and/or taking further steps to curb inflation trends. Additionally, the Fed has been telegraphing its intentions very clearly over the past few months, providing ample time for traders and investors to alter […]

January 28, 2022 | Buy The Dip Versus Sell The Rally

Stock market volatility has become ridiculous … … which is exactly what we should expect at this point in the cycle. The longer a bull market lasts, the larger two groups of traders become: BTFD First and initially most numerous are the buy-the-dip traders who have spent their entire investing lifetimes in a market that […]

January 27, 2022 | Trudeau Can’t Hide

Days before the Freedom Convoy was expected to arrive in Ottawa, Justin Trudeau announced that he would be self-isolating after being exposed to COVID. Luckily the protestors are in no rush. In fact, they plan to gridlock Ottawa until all vaccine mandates are eliminated. “This is not about the vaccine, by the way. There’s nobody […]

January 26, 2022 | The Great Gold Mystery Solved

If there is one mystery in the gold market that has eluded analysts, it is an explanation for the massive inflow of 30 million ounces deposited in a matter of months (around April 2020) into the COMEX-approved gold warehouses, and the big gold ETF, GLD. These physical gold inflows were so large that many wrote […]

January 26, 2022 | Serious Question: How Did You Fare in Past Bear Markets?

As two years of emergency fiscal and monetary support retreat, global growth, inflation and speculative frenzy are as well. Individuals holding equity funds and portfolios at the most extreme valuations in a hundred years have an opportunity to consider:  How did you feel and react in the 2000-2003 and 2007-09 bear markets? Now consider that […]

January 26, 2022 | Financial Sector ETF XLF $37.50 Continues To Present Opportunities

Recent volatility in the US markets ahead of the Fed comments/actions have prompted a relatively big pullback in almost every sector.
