The Federal Reserve Didn't Do Anything But It Had Plenty to Say / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: MoneyMetals

The Federal Reserve didn’t do anything at its March Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, but Jerome Powell & Company had plenty to say.

The Fed’s dovish rhetoric sent a wave of relief through the markets and drove stocks to yet another all-time high.

People would probably be wise to remember that saying isn’t doing.

Stock Market Margin Debt Indicator / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Margin debt tends to peak and fall long before the stock market turns lower as basically speculators start to feel the pain of holding losing positions and thus cut back on their bets. Either that or are forced to close their losing trades due to failure to meet margin calls, in which respect this indicator proved very useful in flagging the prospects for a bear market long before it materialised as stock prices trended higher on petrol fumes as the fuel tank was empty.

It’s Easy to Scream Stocks Bubble! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Stephen_McBride

As I write, it’s currently the 15th anniversary of the 2009 stock market low.

In March '09, US stocks were trading at levels not seen since 1996. Investors had suffered more than a lost decade.

Fast-forward to today, and the S&P 500 has surged 650% off those generational lows.

It’s easy to look at the S&P’s 650% rise and scream “bubble!”

Money Supply Continues To Fall, Economy Worsens – Investors Don’t Care / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2024

By: Kelsey_Williams

The money supply continues to fall, but investors don’t seem to care. They are convinced that their success is connected to a potential Fed shift in interest rate policy. Nothing else seems to matter. That is partially attributable to the fact that, as the financial markets continue their upward trajectory, less and less attention is paid to the deteriorating economy. And, the deterioration is getting worse.

When worsening economic conditions – especially in the labor market – are pointed out, it is either not noticed or ignored. The wealthy and well-connected don’t care; and others don’t know enough to care. If stocks are up, things must be okay.

US Presidential Election Cycle and Recessions / Economics / US Presidential Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This analysis posted in January 2023 that despite MSM hysteria strongly suggested that there would be NO recession during 2023, as there had never been a recession during a pre-election year. Whilst the highest risk is that the recession materialises during 2025, though both 2024 and 2026 are equally high recession risk years.

Gold and the Long-Term Inflation Cycle / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Clif_Droke

Of the many factors that determine gold price trends, the long-term cycle of inflation and deflation is of singular importance. The cycle in question corresponds closely to the 50-to-60-year economic periodicity known as the Kondratieff Wave (or K-Wave), but is in fact a separate cycle. As we’ll discuss here, the cycle tells us to expect a gradual acceleration of inflationary pressures between now and the year 2029, with particular significance for gold investors.

The K-Wave was brought to renown in the 1920s by the Russian economist Nikolai Kondratieff and is widely regarded as the predominant economic super cycle. This cycle arguably represents the most casual approach to identifying the real supply/demand conditions of any free market economy and is especially applicable to the United States. (Cycle analysts have even identified this cycle as existing as far back as thousands of years ago in Assyria and the Roman Empire.)

Fed’s Next Intertest Rate Move might not align with popular consensus / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Richard_Mills

The Fed’s preferred measure of inflation is core PCE, which stands for Personal Consumption Expenditures index. This inflation gauge, published monthly by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), doesn’t include food and energy, because prices for these two categories tend to be volatile.

When the latest PCE numbers came out on Feb. 29, they showed January headline PCE was 2.4%, year on year, while core PCE was 2.8%.

Remember, the Fed’s targeted inflation rate is 2%. Inflation needs to be falling to somewhere close to 2%, for the Fed to consider lowering interest rates, having raised them 11 times since spring 2022.

Two Reasons The Fed Manipulates Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Kelsey_Williams

There are two reasons the Fed manipulates interest rates. Before we talk about those reasons, though,it is important to understand that the Fed does not actually control interest rates. Interest rates are set in the bond market. Buyers and sellers (traders) bid for and offer bonds for sale. When a buyer and seller agree on a price, the trade is finalized. The specific price, in conjunction with the face value of the bond (always $1000) and the stated coupon rate attached to the bond (and the length of time until the bond matures for yield to maturity) factor into the formula which determines the current yield, or what might be called the bond’s current interest rate.

US Dollar Trend 2024 / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Generally when the dollar falls US stocks go up, and when the dollar rises US stocks would tend to exhibit a weaker trend, so a rising dollar does not necessary mean that stocks will fall, rather that it is the rate of change, how volatile the dollar is that can send ripples of uncertainty in the market, so the dollar trading sharply lower would be bearish for stocks -

Paper Gold Vs. Real Gold: It's Important to Know the Difference / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Submissions

When you’re considering investing in precious metals, you are confronted with many options. Silver or gold? Bars or coins? And what in the world is an ETF?

Understanding the differences between an ETF and physical gold and silver is an important first step in the journey to precious metals investing.

ETF is an acronym for “Exchange Traded Fund.” In simplest terms, an ETF represents a basket of investments that trades on the market as a single entity. An ETF could represent just one commodity, such as oil, or it could hold a wide range of assets such as tech stocks. The mix of securities that can potentially be held in an ETF is limited only by your imagination.

Stocks: What This "Record Extreme" Indicator May Be Signaling / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: EWI


"The total easily exceeds the prior net long extreme"

When most everyone agrees on the future trend of a market, it's almost guaranteed that the market will go in the other direction -- sooner rather than later.

The reason why is that there is no one left to convince, hence, the market in question will likely have difficulty going in the predicted direction.
