Trump, BrExit, Crude Oil, Stocks Bull - Most Popular Market Oracle Videos of 2016 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016
2016 is about to come to an end that featured two unexpected shock political events of Britain's EU Referendum BrExit vote that literally no one in the mainstream press, political elite, markets or bookies saw come, and then there was Trump winning the US Presidency, which again shocked the establishment elite. Whilst in the financial markets, the crude oil prices trend garnered much popular interest as the early year oil price collapse had pushed many oil producers towards the edge of economic collapse. And again the BrExit and Trump factors induced much market uncertainty as the consensus expectations were that both events would result in an end of the 7 year long stocks bull market, which instead resulted in the exact opposite trends to a series of new all time highs.Read full article...

This is the longest-term USD chart that I can find. The structure leads me to believe that it is on a giant retracement pattern that may have an ultimate target of 131.00 at a 61.8% retracement of the decline starting in 1984. I will be making minor revisions in my daily and weekly charts to reflect that outlook.Read full article... Read full article...

I begin the day by discussing an error in my Elliott Wave structure and how it was remedied. You may recall that on a larger scale, the USD is in some type of Broadening Formation. I figured that Wave (C) of  hadn’t completed yet and I had calculated the structure in a way that still gave me upper limits on how far it could go.Read full article... Read full article...

Market expectations could be based on false assumption
“Looking ahead, Credit Suisse argues against the view of many pundits that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s fiscal policies are likely to hurt gold. The market has factored in an expectation that a mix of U.S. tax cuts, deregulation and infrastructure spending will boost the economy, pushing up real interest rates and strengthening the U.S. dollar. ‘We counter that trade protectionism and anti-immigration policies are negative for growth and positive for inflation,' Credit Suisse said." – SMN News/KitcoRead full article...

Before the U.S. presidential election analysts pointed out that Trump's administration would be positive for the yellow metal, because of the elevated general uncertainty, possible geopolitical turmoil (due to trade wars or recalibration of foreign policy), slower economic growth (due to protectionism), as well as widened fiscal deficits and higher inflation (due to tax cuts and higher government spending).Read full article...

The stock market looks like it is making a distribution top into the FED meeting. We may see a small pull back into late week and then higher prices into the 14th. We could see a sharp drop into the 5 week cycle low due around the 19th of December. Overall, the market should be lower into March/April 2017 (Minor Wave Wave X of Intermediate Wave Z of Primary Wave 4) next year due to a FED rate hike.Read full article... Read full article...

Right after the Asian-Pacific nations embraced the dream of free trade in the regional Peru Summit, President-elect Trump buried it.
Last weekend, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit made it clear that it would move forward with trade pacts; with or without the US.
Right after the Lima summit, President-elect Donald Trump unveiled his plans for the first 100 days in office, which focus on campaign promises that will not require congressional approval. Among his first actions, Trump said he would "issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Transpacific Partnership" and replace it with negotiating "fair bilateral trade deals."

opportunities in history?
I'm writing to you today about what could be one of the most exciting buying opportunities in the stock market we've ever seen.

GDX looks to rally hard in a 'c' of "C" wave, likely into Early the 25th. We could see GDX around 24.50. It looks like a bear rally. The jobs report on December 2 could knock the precious metals sector down like it did from November 9-14.
The SPX is running on fumes and should drop at least to the 2162 area by early Friday I would think. Higher highs into next November 30-December 1 look likely and up to around 2208/09. My target for next week of 2203 was hit today.Read full article... Read full article...

A financial revolution is now taking place and I want to tell you the story. It has rather large implications for interest rates, the stock market, gold and real estate.
The only reasons for the DOW JONES sharp gains, post-election, is due to the fact its’ index leans toward financial and industrial stocks, (as seen in the chart below), more than the SPX and Nasdaq Indexes. Those two sectors have outstripped most of the market since Election Day.Read full article... Read full article...

We continue to be bearish on Gold as we have been for months, our only recent change is that we are expecting a significant low earlier in 2017 than previously forecast. We have consistently maintained that this bearish phase is just a short term consolidation before we begin a new and significant rise that could well lead to new all time highs.Read full article...

Today’s rising interest rates and trillion-dollar losses in global bond markets are prelude to what is to come, i.e. rising inflation with higher interest rates ending in the bursting of the global government bond bubble and the long awaited breakout of gold.
Last year, on December 15, 2015, the Fed announced the first tentative rate increase in nearly ten years, from 0.0% to 0.25%. The Fed had last raised rates in June 2006 which eventually burst the US real estate bubble in 2007 resulting in the collapse of global markets in 2008.Read full article... Read full article...

Stocks and Deby - Will Trump Bring Morning or Mourning in America? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016
On election night, as political analysts were coming to terms with the possibility of a Trump presidency, the Dow Jones futures plummeted over 800 points, and Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 plunged more than 6.1%. Investors across the country went to sleep with nightmares of protectionism (Smoot-Hawley Trade Tariffs 2.0) and the fiscal train wreck that a Trump presidency might bring.
But by the start of trading on November 9th, Dow futures had recouped most of their losses, and it didn't take long for the erstwhile despondent equity markets to turn sharply positive.Read full article... Read full article...

During his run for the presidency, Donald Trump took the occasional break from insulting women and minorities to toss off some decent – even exciting – policy ideas. Term limits for congressmen and a ban on politicians becoming lobbyists, for instance, were straight from the Libertarian good-government Christmas list.
But best of all was the effective break-up of the big banks through the re-imposition of Glass-Steagall, a law passed during the Great Depression to separate taxpayer-protected commercial banks from free-to-fail investment banks.Read full article... Read full article...
