Is Copper Signalling inflation or Higher Stock Market Prices / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Sol_Palha

An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it is also more nourishing.

  1. L. Mencken

Many pundits associate higher copper prices with inflation. While this is true to a degree, that is the wrong metric to focus on. Higher copper prices are usually associated with an improving economy.  For the past few years, Copper which is a leading indicator did not trend in sync with the markets.  It was marching to a different drum beat, but a new trend could be in the works.

Yet Another Theory of the Fed? Uggh! / Interest-Rates / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: F_F_Wiley

The world hardly needs another theory of the Fed, especially so soon after its Jackson Hole symposium. But we have a theory, too, and who knows, ours could be as close to the bulls-eye as any of the others. Plus, our theory is easy to explain—it rests on the simple premise that decision makers worry mostly about their reputations. We’ll propose that reputational risks are the primary drivers of central bank policies, and then we’ll use that belief to predict a major policy shift.

– “Gold is a good hedge against geopolitical risks when the event leads to a debasement of the dollar”
– Trump and Washington risk bigger driver of gold than risks such as North Korea
– Recent events such as N. Korea only explain fraction of 2017 gold price rally
– Do not buy gold futures rather “physical gold in a vault” is the “true hedge”

Copper Price Movements Augur Well for Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The charts are increasingly looking positive for silver, technical analyst Clive Maund says, and copper's price movements are good news for silver.

The long base pattern in silver continues with positive price/volume action of recent weeks suggesting that it is approaching completion. On its 10-year chart we can see the giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern that has formed in silver, which parallels the one in gold, but is downsloping because silver tends to underperform gold at the end of bear markets and early in bull markets.

US Dollar Crashing, Gold Soars: Justuce at Last! / Currencies / US Dollar

By: The_Gold_Report

As the North Korean crisis escalates, Tom Beck, founder of Portfolio Wealth Global, discusses the rise of gold and other metals.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan last Tuesday, sending gold to its highest level in 2017. Last month, we told you that Ray Dalio, the world's largest hedge fund manager, suggested holding up to 10% of your portfolio in gold, warning of rising risks.

It's time to effectively prepare for the best buying opportunities.

Why Korean Tensions Should Soon Ease: The Effect on the Dollar and Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The tensions centered on the Korean peninsula should soon ease, leading to a rally in the dollar and a (mild) reaction in precious metals and other commodities like copper, says technical analyst Clive Maund.

There can be no denying that what we have previously referred to as "The Empire" is intent on world domination. The evidence is there for all to see in the form of a vast network of military bases spread across the globe, and a history of invasion of various countries by the Empire in recent years in pursuit of its geopolitical objectives. The economic engine that drives the Empire and supports its imperialistic ambitions is the dollar, whose Reserve Currency status means that infinite quantities of it (or proxy derivatives like Treasuries) can be printed up and swapped for goods and services with any and all countries around the world, and it is this dynamic that supports the formidable U.S. military machine.

The Great Shift of Global Economic Power / Economics / Global Economy

By: Dan_Steinbock

BRIC economies continue to grow. In the late 2020s, the size of China’s economy will surpass that of the US. By the early 2030s, the BRICs’ combined economic power will surpass that of major advanced nations.

The BRICS Summit in Xiamen, Fujian province, signals the rising might of the large emerging economies, such as China, India, Russia, and Brazil. South Africa does not fulfill the criteria of a true BRIC economy - large population, strong growth record and catch-up potential - but it has historically played a key role in African governance.

Stocks Bears - Where Did Everyone Go? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Brady_Willett

The Fed started hacking interest rates in 2007 and QE3 ended in October 2014. This 7-year period of extraordinary ease, and the nearly 3-year upswing since, has been a difficult time for many market contrarians and so called ‘bears’. To wit, Cornerstone has been missing since 2015, Contrary Investor hasn’t released anything publicly since 2013, and Cross Currents, Beartopia, Financial Armageddon, iTulip, Nystrom, Iacono, and numerous others have gone into deep hibernation. As for Prudent Bear, Tice sold his fund as the crisis began and now the site is trying to look prim and proper (I preferred it when a visit to Prudent Bear meant reading the ‘Bear’s Lair’ and seeing another Tice warning about the coming collapse in the stock market (which, of course, Mr. Tice is still warning of)).

How EIA Guestimates Keep Crude Oil Prices Subdued / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

The EIA has once again undercut its previous estimates for U.S. oil production, offering further evidence that the U.S. shale industry is not producing as much as everyone thinks.

The monthly EIA oil production figures tend to be more accurate than the weekly estimates, although they are published on several months after the fact. The EIA just released the latest monthly oil production figures for June, for example. Meanwhile, the agency releases production figures on a weekly basis that are only a week old – the latest figures run up right through August.

No middle section could be found centered on the low of the previous basic decline (10/4/11) that forecasts a turn this week.

Washington D.C. Dysfunction and Central Bank Chaos / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Michael_Pento

On September 5th, the members of both houses of Congress of the United States will clean the beach sand from between their toes and return to work. Our public servants who occupy The House of Representatives have been working on their respective tans since July 29th. The Senate has had a little less time in the sun; they held their final vote on August 3rd despite their pledge to stay until August 11th.

Hopefully, they got a lot of rest, because they have a lot to do upon their return. By the end of September Congress will need to pass a budget bill to avoid a government shutdown. Expect Tea Party Republicans to hold their ground on spending cuts while Trump petitions for his wall. According to recent tweets, Trump is pushing for this fight and welcomes a government shutdown. Get out the popcorn this could get interesting.

Criminal Chinese Government Crashes The Cryptocurrency Market / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Jeff_Berwick

What do governments do? Enslave people. What do central banks do? Impoverish people. And what do government regulations do? Destroy capital, impoverish people and protect the monopolies of the 1%.

And today we are seeing how government regulations, which is just another word for “threats of violence” and “extortion” can impoverish people and destroy capital while protecting the financial banking monopoly.

And that is exactly what has happened in China this week where the People’s Bank of China, the Chinese central bank, has officially declared ICOs (initial coin offerings) to be an illegal method of raising money.
