October 31, 2022 | Say Hello to 7%

  30-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgages climbed above 7% in October – up from 3.18% 12 months earlier. This is the first time they have been above 7% since 2002. As my followers know, I used technical analysis to correctly forecast this rise in rates in my January 2022 Timing Letter. Furthermore, even though rates have more […]

October 31, 2022 | Bolsonaro Loses – Good Night Brazil

COMMENT: Marty; Thank you so much for Socrates. Jair M. Bolsonaro lost to the left. I couldn’t believe it.

AH REPLY: The currency should decline into 2023. The promises […]

October 31, 2022 | Housing Led Recession Just Getting Started

In the video, we will analyze economic data that could predict the coming housing crash.

The headwind facing further central bank hiking is that the global credit impulse (movement […]

October 30, 2022 | Zelensky Wants WWIII Bringing Death & Destruction to the Entire World

With most con artists, you need to count your fingers after shaking hands. With the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, you have to make sure you still have your arm. He wears the same clothes to project he is at war raising some to hope he at least takes it off to wash. Both Germany […]

October 30, 2022 | Turning Bullish on Energy

I literally grew up in the oil patch: Wise County, Texas, 60 or 70 miles northwest of Fort Worth in a little town called Bridgeport. The two first-generation Greek immigrant brothers who became Mitchell Energy talked old man Christie into funding Christie, Mitchell and Mitchell and they drilled (hundreds?) of natural gas wells which they […]

October 13, 2022, was a Key Turn Date A Key Turn Date occurs when several different markets reverse course on (or around) the same date. The fact that several different markets “pivot” simultaneously indicates that something significant has happened – for instance, there has been a significant “shift” in sentiment or a critical geopolitical event. On October 13, the US CPI report was […]

October 29, 2022 | The First Rule of Money

  Investors over-estimate their tolerance for risk. It’s easy to feel like a genius in a bull market – but it’s only after you lose big money will you understand what it’s like to be on the wrong side of a market. It’s not just the financial loss you take – it’s the emotional toll […]

October 28, 2022 | Bank of Canada Wavers

The Bank of Canada blinked first as recession looms and the economy continues to adjust to much higher interest rates. The BOC hiked interest rates only 50 basis points on October 26 when the market expected 75 basis points. Is the Bank of Canada signaling that rates are high enough now?

October 27, 2022 | The Climate Change Zealots are Coming for Your Pets

There was a 2017 study entitled “Environmental Impacts […]

October 26, 2022 | Fetterman v Oz – Another Case Against Mail-In Voting

The Pennsylvania Senate debate between John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz was a complete disaster for Fetterman. I think everyone felt secondhand embarrassment for John. Fetterman seemed incoherent for most of the debate. He struggled to form logical sentences or stay on topic. His team is now in the midst of damage control. They claim that […]

October 26, 2022 | Bank of Canada Blinks, Stocks Should Next

Too loose for too long, central banks have responded to lagging inflationary pressures in 2022 with the sharpest six-month tightening cycle on record.

October 25, 2022 | Alberta Premier Danielle Smith Fighting Back Against WEF

This is big news. Alberta’s new Premier Danielle Smith is the first government leader to apologize for vaccine mandates. Taking it a step further, she directly criticizes the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Schwab; she has “no interest in being involved with them.” During her first day in office, Smith immediately apologized for the vaccine […]

October 25, 2022 | The Beatings Will Continue

Inflation in Canada slowed less than expected, growing by 6.9% year-over-year in September, economist expectations were at 6.7%. A small miss that will have big ramifications. Markets immediately repriced Bank of Canada rate hike odds for October 26th, now expecting another jumbo 75bps rate hike. In other words, the beatings will continue until morale improves. […]

October 23, 2022 | Sweden Will Not Meet Agenda 2030

New Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson is not heeding to the Green agenda. He promptly eliminated the entire Ministry of Climate and Environment, marking the first time in 35 years that Sweden does not have a specific climate ministry. People are crying that the world will crumble without funding bureaucrats who pretend they have the ability […]

October 23, 2022 | Bear Market Kabuki

The seemingly strong rally that ended the week merely balanced out three days of bland weakness that had preceded it. In the S&P 500, the upthr ust steepened by the hour but ultimately failed to surpass any important prior peaks. The bear seems out to challenge bulls and bears alike with its obviousness. For one, […]
