Gold, Silver and Stock Market Big Picture: Seat Belts Tightened / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: The_Gold_Report

Sector expert Michael Ballanger offers his latest insights into the markets and his investment strategy as 2019 winds down.

"Gold is money; everything else is credit." —J.P. Morgan

Dating back to the mid-80s, and usually around the end of November, I begin to formulate strategies and portfolios looking out to the upcoming New Year, taking into account technical, fundamental and geopolitical factors in an effort to avoid career-ending draw-downs while posting a respectable degree of performance.

Being a player in both the commodity and equity arenas, it is no surprise that over the past forty years of covering precious metals and stocks, the landscape has changed in a manner that defies the term "evolution." A better term to describe the metamorphosis in the credit and equity markets, particularly since 2009, would be the use of the term "deformation," as government-sponsored intervention has thrown a toxic curve ball at the analytical batter's box. The days where charts of the Dow Jones and five-year gross domestic product (GDP) growth could be coupled with few bank-generated reports on the economy to arrive at a bullish/bearish stance are gone forever, joining the dodo bird and human traders on the list of extinct species. Whereas the two primary drivers of market volatility used to be fear and greed, the only driver left today is policy, as in central bank usage of financial markets to govern final demand.

Consumer Discretionary Sector and Corporate Bonds On Verge of Sell-off / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

I have been warning of a peak in the markets and a continued capital shift in the global economy that continued to push the NASDAQ and DOW towards new all-time highs while the foundations of the global markets continued to weaken. 

I authored dozens of research posts regarding this phenomenon over the past 90+ days.  Yet the clearest signs of this event may already be present in these Consumer Discretionary Sector and Corporate Bonds charts.

Consumers drive economic activity and corporate debt is often a measure of sustainable debt function within a functioning economy.  When consumers tighten their belts and exit the economy in some form and Corporate debt is viewed as “more toxic” than “opportunistic” – something has changed in the global economy where a portion of the active consumer engagement of that economy is waning or has already left the building.

How to Use Price Cycles and Profit as a Swing Trader – SPX, Bonds, Gold, Nat Gas / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

News does drive certain market events and we understand how certain traders rely on news or interest rates to bias their positions and trades.  As technical analysis purists, so to say, we believe the price operates within pure constructs of price rotation theory, trend theory, technical indicator theory, and price cycles.  We’ve found that technical analysis distills many news items into pure technical trading signals that we can use to profit from market swings.

Price is the ultimate indicator in our view.  Price determines current trends, support/resistance levels/channels, past price peaks and troughs and much more.  When we apply our proprietary price modeling and price cycle tools, we can gain a very clear picture of what price may attempt to do in the near future and even as far as a few months into the future.  Price, as the ultimate indicator, truly is the mathematical core element of all future price activity, trends, and reversions.

Interference Most Foul: When Speculation Becomes Reality / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: The_Gold_Report

Sector expert Michael Ballanger ruminates on the bubble-popping influence of government and the banking sector on cryptocurrencies, and offers a brief rundown on his most current holdings.

To put it mildly, the business of financial forecasting is not only an inexact science, it is a magnified case study in handicapping, the likes of which you find in sports betting such as horse racing or basketball. You take a basket of data inputs, such as the last five heats run by a certain filly or the accuracy of a basketball player shooting free throws and you assign various weights to the data, which allows you to determine whether the horse or the player has the ability to shine.

In financial forecasting, you take a similar basket of inputs, such as 10-year Treasury yields and average dividend yields, plus a barrage of other factors, which allows you to gauge direction and amplitude. In sports, you are handicapping a winner, and by how much, while in financial forecasting you are handicapping the direction and by how much.

Weekly SPX & Gold Price Cycle Report / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Today I want to talk to you about the SP500 because it’s on the verge of making a very significant move. We could experience a 15% rally or a 15% decline and it could be just around the corner.

Let me recap on both the short-term top this month, and then a look at the bigger picture of what happened last October through December and if we are going to see that happen again. There is the possibility we get a massive rally if the market breaks to new highs. The market is loaded and ready for action. Whichever way it breaks will have a strong impact on precious metals and bonds. Make sure to opt-in to our free market trend signals newsletter.

What Makes United Markets Capital Different From Other Online Brokers? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Travis_Bard

In recent times, there seems to be a strategic shift from the small shady market environment to a more controlled and fully developed ecosystem. One company that is doing so well, especially with the continuous growth in the independent broker market generally is United Markets Capital. United Markets Capital is a fast-growing online broker that has been under the radar for some time now. People seem to want to find out what makes the company different from other online brokers out there. David Goldberg, the co-CEO of the company, answers this question in details in a recent interview he granted.

East-West Trade War: Never Take a Knife to a Gunfight / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: The_Gold_Report

Sector expert Michael Ballanger's take on this week's news from the financial markets informs his most recent investment decisions.

It's a funny thing that happens when the stress of financial insolvency bubbles up to the surface. Decisions once considered "routine" (like brushing one's teeth or walking one's dog) suddenly have life-or-death outcomes, complete with cold sweats, sleepless nights and self-prescribed medicinal relief. Whenever I turn on the financial news stations, such as Fox, Bloomberg or CNN, I get the impression that I am watching Kabuki theatre, with exquisitely-designed puppets playing out exquisitely crafted scripts. I am immediately faced with the ageless problem of whether or not to consider the content "news," or should I view it as simple "entertainment."

By example, the saber-rattling of the United States of America in its anti-China rhetoric is playbill material of the highest order. You have in the red corner the aging heavyweight champion, long seated on the throne of global military and economic dominance, while in the blue corner, you have the spry young contender, hungry from decades of communist suppression and poverty with a highly motivated populace and a powerful and rapidly growing military. As much as the world may loathe it, it appears that the bell is soon to sound and the battle for global supremacy is about to begin.

Precious Metals & Stock Market VIX Are Set To Launch Dramatically Higher / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The recent rotation in the US stock market and US major indexes have set up a very interesting pattern in the Metals and VIX charts.  Our researchers believe precious metals, Gold and Silver, are setting up a new momentum base/bottom and are beginning an early stage bullish price rally that may surprise many traders.  If you have not been following our research, please take a minute to read these past research posts:

September 24, 2019: IS SILVER ABOUT TO BECOME THE SUPER-HERO OF PRECIOUS METALS?

September 19, 2019: PRECIOUS METALS SETTING UP ANOTHER MOMENTUM BASE/BOTTOM

Our researchers believe the bottom in Metals has already set up on October 1, 2019.  This setup aligns with our earlier analysis that a new bullish price leg is setting up that will propel Gold to levels above $1600 before the end of November – possibly resulting in a rally that attempts to breach the $1700 price level.

Strategies on how to be a Successful CFD Trader / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Submissions

If you’re new to the world of trading, CFD trading refers to Contracts for Difference. It is the ability to speculate. You buy and sell based on the rise and fall of financial products. You can trade similar products in the share market, but in this case, you need only a small amount of margin upfront. Most CFD brokers allow access for more than 10,000 trading instruments all over the world. These strategies are not a formula to get multi-billion-dollar rich in one week but to help you build a strong foundation to trade in CFDs, forex exchange, and other global markets to improve your profits.

Cycles Supporting Market Consolidations / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: readtheticker

Cycles show how regular time and price periods work within price action, they help thread the needle as  to where price may move to next. Cycles with Wyckoff logic help expose how fundamentals are working through price action to motivate price to a new level.  Here are some examples of cycles with other readtheticker indicators.  Chart 1: If the SP500 trends higher on QE4 and gold holds up, then gold stocks should do well, and most likely out perform gold itself.

The Fed Has Admitted It Screwed Up… the Next Crisis is Coming / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Graham_Summers

That’s THREE strikes against the Fed.

The Fed cut rates again in September.

At this point, trying to keep track of the Fed’s reasoning for monetary policy is all but impossible. There is no logic or reason behind anything they do.

A year ago, the Fed told us that hiking rates four times a year while running $50 billion in Quantitative Tightening (QT) per month would have no effect on the economy or financial system.

Scary Warning Signs in Cash Funding Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Michael_Pento

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

Coming up Michael Pento of Pento Portfolio Strategies joins me for another top-flight interview as we discuss some major stresses in the financial system that are going to result in some serious issues in the economy. He also talks about the trade summit happening next month and what it will likely mean for precious metals if a deal is struck between the U.S. and China, or if an agreement is not reached. So be sure to stick around for my conversation with Michael Pento, coming up after this week’s market update.

Precious metals markets are trading in wide ranges as they struggle to hold on to gains posted earlier in the week.

As of this Friday recording, the metals are taking it on the chin here today with gold now looking at a weekly decline of 1.6% to trade at $1,494 an ounce. Silver is down 3.0% for the week to come in at $17.49 per ounce. Platinum is moving lower this week by 1.4% and currently fetches $937 an ounce. And finally, palladium is now commanding $1,692 per ounce after rising another 2.7% this week.

News and Emotions Aside, This Is Where Stocks and Precious Metals Are Headed / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

If you follow the headline news, read multiple articles a day from different sources on the markets, and are human then you are likely underperforming the market in which you are trying to beat like gold, miners, the SP500 index or whatever it may be.

The information I talk about below and in this video should be a real eye opener for those have not seen technical analysis in action, just how clear the we can see what the stock market, bonds, metals, oil and more will do next. Even at a time like this when the markets are gyrating all over hte place from week to week, we can still gauge our risk and be a winner.

Democrats Launch Formal Trump Impeachment – What Should Gold, Stock Traders Expect? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

News of the formal impeachment proceedings came just after the markets closed on September 24, 2019.  The markets had already broken a bit lower most of the day after Consumer Confidence and Jobs expectations were weaker than expected.  We had just authored a public research post about our belief that the Technology sector was about to breakdown and begin to move lower.  Additionally, we pushed out a post about how Silver would become the “Super-Hero” of 2019/2020 based on our expectations of further gains.

We believe the new impeachment proceedings will result in a market that is very similar to what happened when the US invaded Kuwait in August 1990.  At that time, the US launched a very fast invasion of Kuwait that prompted a massive news event and resulted in hours of new invasion video that drew millions of Americans into watching the news every night.  This invasion was almost like an extended Super Bowl or an extended World Series event where millions of people are actively engaged in this event, stop engaging in the local economy and focus their attentions on the news cycle, content and political circus originating in DC.

Panicky Fed Flooding Overnight Markets with Cash / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: MoneyMetals

Meanwhile, Socialist Elizabeth Warren Surges Past Biden

It’s been a big week of geopolitical strife and potential crisis points for financial markets. The week began with one of the biggest single day oil spikes on record, then saw the Federal Reserve lose control of its own interest rate in the repo market before announcing another rate cut.

Yet these and other developments are having surprisingly little impact on Wall Street. We aren’t seeing huge stock market gyrations or a mass migration by investors into precious metals. The S&P 500 is essentially flat for the week while gold prices are trading modestly higher.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve cut its benchmark Fed funds rate by a quarter point. Though the move was widely expected, it was not without controversy.

Media Hypes Recession Whilst Trump Proposes a Tax on Savings / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: MoneyMetals

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

Coming up, Axel Merk of Merk Investments joins me for a conversation on the latest central banking shenanigans, why he believes the economy may heat up again in the near term, and why the war on cash and the move to digital money will continue to drive people into gold. So don’t miss another great interview with Axel Merk, coming up after this week’s market update.

Gold and silver markets are testing support levels this week. Gold has been hanging around the $1,500 level while silver trades sideways through Thursday’s close at just above $18 an ounce.

As of this Friday recording, gold prices come in at $1,498 per ounce, down 0.7% for the week. Silver, meanwhile, now shows a weekly loss of 2.0%, with most of that loss coming here today, to bring spot prices to $17.89.

The bright spot in the metals space this week is palladium. The catalytic metal pierced through $1,600 an ounce on Thursday to record a new record high. Palladium prices now check in at $1,609 after gaining $60 or 3.9% on the week.

Precious Metals, US Dollar, Stocks – How It All Relates – Part II / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

This research post continues our effort to keep investors aware of the risks and shifting capital opportunities that are currently taking place in the global markets.  We started in PART I of this article by attempting to highlight how shifting currency valuations have played a very big role in precious metals pricing and how these currency shifts may ultimately result in various risk factors going forward with regards to market volatility. 

Simply put, currency pricing pressures are likely to isolate many foreign markets from investment activities as consumers, institutions and central governments may need more capital to support localized economies and policies while precious metals continue to get more and more expensive.
