The Islamic State Jihadi Pivot to Asia / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: Dan_Steinbock

         
As the Islamic State is collapsing in the Middle East, it needs wins elsewhere. Southeast Asia is Jihadi terror’s new battlefront. In order to contain the terror and sustain the Asian Century, new kind of cooperation is needed between the ASEAN, the US, China, and other major powers in the region and the Middle East.

A systematic terror escalation has begun in Asia. In May, an armed conflict started in Marawi in Mindanao, where government forces were surprised by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), and homegrown Maute and Abu Sayyaf Salafi jihadists.

After a foiled plot by an ISIL-linked group last year to launch a rocket at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, several radicalized Indonesian workers have been sent back home and Bangladeshis arrested, along with a few Singaporeans.

Potential Pivots Upcoming for Stocks and Gold / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Gary_Tanashian

Prologue: This is a bearish article written by someone who covered his short (bearish) positions today (except for the euro) and has only long positions now, in precious metals and stocks, along with a heaping helping of cash. In other words, per yesterday’s snapshot, the market had dropped to levels that could see a bounce, especially since the spark to this week’s reaction was not legitimate as a substantial market input. This article is not concerned with short-term ups and downs; it is concerned with what comes in September or in Q4, after da boyz is back from da Hampins and settled in.

The war of words between the TiC (Tweeter-in-Chief) and the LiC (Lunatic-in-Chief) has little to do with the financial market’s intermediate-term fate. In the very short-term? Sure, man, machine, casino patron and Mom & Pop will fly in and out of stocks as the wind (and sentiment backdrop) blows. But before this standoff of the belligerent, the markets had set a course for changes come September or Q4 2017.

Stock Market VIX Explodes and XIV Puts In A Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Submissions

Mike Golembesky writes: The XIV fell over 13% on Thursday, August 10th and is now down over 23% from the high that was struck on July 26th. Additionally, the XIV has firmly broken through all of shorter term price support levels that I have been mentioning now for several weeks. The break of these support levels is, therefore, making it highly probable that a larger degree top has been struck in the XIV.

North Korean Chinese Proxy vs US Military Empire Trending Towards Nuclear War! / Politics / China US Conflict

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The US continues to firmly trend towards war with China as the mainstream press media spotlight on North Korea during 2017 continues to displace the other dozen or so US/China flashpoints such as China's land grab underway in the South China Sea.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state. And as I said, they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before". - President Trump

North Korea responds “it is 'carefully examining' plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with ‘fire and fury,’The strike plan would be put into practice at any moment once leader Kim Jong-un makes a decision, a spokesman for the Korean People's Army (KPA) said in a statement carried by the North's state-run KCNA news agency.”

Gold Stocks Coiled Spring / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

The gold miners’ stocks have largely ground sideways this year, really lagging gold’s strong rally.  That lack of upside has decimated sentiment, leaving a bearish wasteland bereft of hope.  But this deeply-out-of-favor sector is actually a coiled spring, ready to surge dramatically as psychology shifts.  Sentiment, technicals, and fundamentals all point to much-higher gold-stock prices even at today’s prevailing gold levels.

The main appeal of gold-mining stocks is their underlying profits’ leverage to gold.  The gold stocks are much riskier than gold, due to many operational, geological, and geopolitical risks the metal itself doesn’t share.  So investors and speculators alike must be compensated for these big added risks with superior returns to gold.  That hasn’t happened so far in 2017, which is why gold stocks are so widely despised today.

Neil Howe: The Amazon-Walmart Rivalry Will Determine the Future of Retail / Companies / Amazon

By: John_Mauldin

My good friend Neil Howe has reconsidered the escalating war between Amazon and Walmart for the future of retail. And in true Neil fashion, he has come up with some surprising insights.

One of the takeaways here is that market “duopolies” can save consumers money—so you and I had better hope the battle isn’t resolved anytime soon.

Did you know that one in five US consumers is now an Amazon Prime member? But don’t count Walmart out, Neil warns.

Will the Death of Diesel Cars Ruin Platinum? / Commodities / Platinum

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The gloomy future of the diesel vehicles is commonly known. However, what does it really mean? And how could the demise of diesel technology impact the precious metals market?

The 1970s oil crisis and accelerating inflation made diesel-powered cars popular, especially in Europe where gasoline prices were always higher than in the U.S. The new technology was considered as more efficient and less polluting, as diesel cars produce less carbon dioxide than gasoline cars (thanks to better mileage). Hence, policy makers started to support diesel and the market share of diesel cars went from 14 percent in 1990 to 50 percent in 2016, as the chart below shows.

Is the Yellen Fed Planning to Sabotage Trump’s Presidency? / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: MoneyMetals

The Federal Reserve can make or break a president.

Monetary policy influences all financial markets as well as the cycles in the economy. No president wants to have to run for re-election when the stock market and economy are turning down.

Recall that President George H.W. Bush was sitting on sky-high job approval numbers in 1991 and was expected to coast to victory in his 1992 re-election bid. But then the economy swooned toward recession, giving Bill Clinton the opening he needed.

What Makes Women Better Investors / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Adam_ODell

Remember that book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus? It sold more than 50 million copies in the ‘90s!

It brilliantly shed light on some of the biggest differences between men and women in terms of each gender’s typical traits, thought patterns, communication styles, and behaviors.

Sure! It garnered some criticism for perpetuating stereotypes, although I’m sure the author never meant to suggest that all men are problem-solvers, for example, or that all women are good at multi-tasking.

Silver Boom Time? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Hubert_Moolman

Previously, I have shown how conditions in the financial markets are very similar to that of the early 80s (circa 1983). Basically, the Dow was at a start of a long-term rally around 1983, and silver just broke down and entered a long-term bear market.

However, as I have predicted in that article, we would likely see a divergence, despite the similar conditions. Normally, when such a divergence occurs, then one gets a massive move in an opposite direction to the pattern or period compared to.

Crude Oil Price Precious Metals Link in August / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

In the previous month crude oil gained almost 9% as declines in crude oil, gasoline and distillates inventories continued to support the price of the commodity. In that environment light crude climbed above the psychologically important barrier of $50 and closed July above it. Despite this bullish development, the price of the black gold slipped below it at the beginning of August. Is this just a bigger pullback or the first sign of a longer correction? Is it possible that the oil-to-gold and oil-to-silver ratios give us more clues about crude oil future moves?
