The Fed Just Admitted It No Longer Has a Clue What’s Going On / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Graham_Summers

The Fed July FOMC minutes, that were released last week, were nothing short of extraordinary. However, to fully appreciate just what the Fed admitted, we first need a little background.

From November 2016 until June 2017, the Fed was pushing a hawkish agenda. The running mantra at this time was that the Fed would raise rates 3-4 times in 2017. As the year progressed, the Fed also began talking about shrinking its balance sheet.

Why Can’t Wheeler-Dealer Trump Cut a Deal with North Korea? / Politics / North Korea

By: Mike_Whitney

The United States and South Korea are currently engaged in large-scale, joint-military war games that simulate an invasion of the North, the destruction of the DPRK’s nuclear weapons sites, and a “decapitation operation” to take out the supreme leader, Kim Jong-un. The objective of the operation is to intensify tensions between North and South thereby justifying the continued US occupation of the peninsula and the permanent division of the country.

Gold Stocks Quietly Leading Gold Price / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Welcome to the dog days of summer. The low volatility in precious metals continues. Janet Yellen or some other Fed heads said something Friday. Precious Metals sold off but quickly recovered. It appears that not much has transpired in recent weeks as precious metals have grinded higher, albeit slowly. However, while it may be a fledgling development, the miners appear to be leading Gold now.

Where to Find Value in an Overheated Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Charles_Sizemore

 “Private equity” can conjure entertaining mental images. I’ve often asked friends to describe what comes to mind for them when I mention the phrase.

Here’s a sampling of what they’ve said: An older man in a fancy suit enjoying a single-malt scotch in a private New England club… who takes perverse pleasure in looting a company of its assets before firing all the employees and selling whatever’s left for spare parts. (It’s the old “buy, strip, and flip” routine.)

Could the Total Eclipse Sign a Major Financial Markets Turning Point? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2017

By: Harry_Dent

Were you one of the lucky ones able to witness the total eclipse yesterday, as it moved on its west to east path across the middle of the U.S.? Whether you did or not, there’s probably something about this event that you HAVEN’T heard…

My friend Andrew Pancholi, cycle whiz from London and creator of the Market Timing Report, recently told me that yesterday’s path of totality across the U.S. looked eerily similar to the one that occurred at the beginning of the Civil War… and that this could signal America as the starting point to broader civil wars and political restructurings around the globe.

Racism & Divisiveness: The Real-Life Economic Solutions / Politics / Social Issues

By: Harry_Dent

As a new generation emerges into the workforce, it brings with it revolution, be it technological, social, or political. They have fresh new ideas and their own, unique values, which grow to dominate as the older generation filters into retirement.

That’s part of what’s going on today in America, where extreme divisiveness and racial stresses threaten to tear us apart. (Another part is that this is all part of a larger 250-Year Revolutionary Cycle, and an 84-Year Populist Movement Cycle, to name just two.)

Gold Junior Stocks Q2 2017 Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness.  The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them.  The juniors recently reported Q2 earnings, and enjoyed strong results.

Four times a year publicly-traded companies release treasure troves of valuable information in the form of quarterly reports.  Companies trading in the States are required to file 10-Qs with the US Securities and Exchange Commission by 45 calendar days after quarter-ends.  Canadian companies have similar requirements.  In other countries with half-year reporting, some companies still partially report quarterly.

Here’s What Matters And What Doesn’t Matter In The Markets Right Now / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2017

By: John_Mauldin

In this week’s Outside the Box, good friend and at various times business partner Steve Blumenthal reveals a very useful character flaw and follows up our shared experience at Camp Kotok with some perceptive observations about things he heard there that matter.

He also shares his notes on a recent interview of Ray Dalio by Bloomberg’s Tom Keene and Mike McKee. Here, he says, is the stuff that matters most!

I really liked the theme he developed about matters and does not matter. When he writes the line, “As I sift through research, my head clicks doesn’t matterdoesn’t matter matters!” I find myself nodding in agreement. Exactly!

Will the Fuel Cells Vehicles Save Platinum and Palladium? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Although everyone agrees that the electric revolution is looming, there is no consensus about the pace and the detailed form of the upcoming shifts in the automotive industry. In particular, some miners and analysts believe that fuel cell cars will spur or at least support the demand for platinum and palladium. For example, the world’s three largest platinum producers (Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum and Lonmin) invested in projects related to fuel cell technologies. Indeed, the white metal is used in catalysts in fuel cells vehicles, where power comes from combining hydrogen and oxygen over a platinum catalyst. The game is definitely worth the candle: today’s fuel cell cars need a full ounce of platinum versus a 2-4 grams PGM loading for the average gasoline or diesel vehicle.

Are Precious Metals About To Go Parabolic? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Avi_Gilburt

With the metals providing us with the pullback we were expecting in our report last weekend (Aug 12-13), they continued to push higher from that pullback. Moreover, the structure continues to look quite bullish. However, the only question the market has yet to answer is if we see one more drop before the parabolic rally commences, or if we simply begin to rally strongly from here.

Gold versus Bitcoin BTC / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: SurfCity

I don’t want to start a religious war here but clearly in 2017, BitCoin has vastly outperformed Gold as my first chart shows. I am still very positive that Gold and the PM sector will have its time in the sun again, but GBTC has given me another asset to trade while Gold and PMs have largely consolidated sideways for most of the year.

That said, the move in BitCoin appears to me to be in Wave 5 of an Elliott Wave pattern which will lead to a major top. Once it tops, according to Mr. Elliott, we will very likely see an ABC correction which will move price much lower than most expect. That is what is needed to re-set investor sentiment to bearish so the next leg up can begin. My second chart on GBTC shows the Wave 3 and 5 Parabola’s on the chart. These never end well but I will be doing my best to squeeze as much out of this Wave 5 move as I can.

Shannara Johnson writes: Grant Williams believes that the 76 million retiring Baby Boomers will trigger a major pension crisis. He should know, because he’s been studying financial history and telltale crisis patterns for nearly two decades.

“With that potentially bad situation we could face,” the seasoned asset manager and co-founder of Real Vision TV said in a recent Metal Masters interview, “holding physical metal, somewhere safe, somewhere outside the banking system, is just a sensible precaution to take.”

What Financial Conditions Tell Us (Two Charts and a Prediction) / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

It seems every bank, including central banks, publishes a financial conditions index these days. And because financial conditions typically lead the economy, it makes sense to track them. In fact, they might contain even more information than they get credit for. They might offer the elusive “crystal ball” that foretells our economic fortunes.
