BUY FACEBOOK Stock at a 10% DIscount / Companies / Metaverse

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Facebook or rather META traded down from $340 to a low $308. Facebook is the second most important stock on my list to accumulate into for the long-run AI mega-trend after Google, so it is a stock that I would personally not want to be totally disinvested from and remain eager to expand my holdings from about 3% upto a similar size to that of Google's current 6%.

METAVERSE is nothing new! It is the inevitable track Facebook has been on since it bought Oculus in 2014 and started to release the Quest VR headsets and thus is one of the primary reasons why I own Facebook stock as it currently dominates the VR market at about 1/3rd of the market share with it's VR headsets up from about 15% 3 years ago, headsets which I personally use so I well understand the technology and why the metaverse is slowly becoming manifest with each generation of headset and associated gear.

Stock Market Turning the Corner in Style / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2021

By: Monica_Kingsley

S&P 500 bulls delivered, and the revival in risk-on is increasingly getting legs as HYG rebounded sharply. The sharply increasing participation is counterbalanced by still compressing yield curve, but yields finally rose yesterday. Finally, we saw a truly risk-on positioning in the credit markets – and that won‘t be without (positive) consequences.

Still, it pays to be ready for the adverse scenario that I‘ve described in yesterday‘s key analysis, in connection with which I have received an interesting question. It‘s essentially a request to dig in some more so that my thinking can‘t be interpreted as being on the verge of immediately flipping bearish:

Q: Your analysis of today: "Downside risks having sharply increased since Thanksgiving. Not only for stocks, where we might not be making THE correction's low, but also for commodities, cryptos and precious metals". I am not sure if I am interpreting this right (English is not my native language). Are you saying that the market might turn down spectacular, even for precious metals?

A: it's specifically the market breadth for larger than 500 stock indices that tells me we possibly aren't out of the woods yet - no matter the technical improvements that I looked for us to get yesterday, and that are likely to continue thanks not only to solid HYG performance. What I'm saying is that unless there is broader participation in the unfolding S&P 500 rally (and in the rally of other indices), we're in danger of a more significant move to the downside than we saw already (those few percents down).

Whenever discussing traveling, many people instantly think about the many benefits of doing this. However, not everything is always great.

Staying away from home can incur additional costs, which may be difficult to manage.

This article will provide you with a few financial tips to help you out while you’re traveling, so that you can fully enjoy yourself and focus on your time away, rather than constantly worrying about financial difficulties.

New Mining Tech Could Be A Gamechanger For Lithium / Companies / Lithium

By: OilPrice_Com

Thanks to a potentially disruptive new technology, a revolution could be on the horizon in the lithium industry.

This revolution – which could see lithium production that is faster, cheaper and more environmentally friendly – would be happening at a time when demand for lithium is extraordinarily high.

With its proprietary lithium extraction technology, this company could unlock a significant amount of potential dollar value...possibly starting with their lithium exploration properties in Thunder Bay, Ontario and James Bay, Quebec.

This company – Vancouver-based Medaro Mining (CSE:MEDA; OTC:MEDAF)  – is currently flying beneath Wall Street’s radar...but the exciting potential of its lithium extraction technology means that it may not be the case for much longer.

Investing in the METAVERSE Stocks Universe / Companies / Metaverse

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Dear Reader

Facebook hit the nail on the head by bringing forth realisation to the masses of the emerging metaverse's with their corporate name change to META, though most will soon forget what all the fuss was about and carry on their merry way until they next big metaverse story, so this aspect of the Quantum AI mega-trend will continue to trundle along in the background. However savvy investors will already be aware of the "meta-verse" and what it heralds in terms of virtual products and services as the headsets technology plays catchup so as to allow the masses to escape from an increasingly dismal economic future given the rise of machine intelligence automation that seeks to replace human labour as we have seen play out in countless movies such as Ready Player One.

Whilst those who are skeptical of the 'metaverse' or what I would call virtual worlds and see it as a flash in the pan that will soon forgotten for the next 'big thing' need to understand that we all already inhabit a virtual world in our day to day city lives, none of which is 'natural' but virtual space carved out by humans to inhabit to earn points (currency) to buy goods and services which is why so many people are easily able to escape into video games, and their virtual spaces which the metaverse virtual worlds take to the next level. i.e. metaverse's are basically GAMING ENVIRONMENTS that are being MONETIZED by means of crypto tokens such as the buying of virtual LAND,

Stock Market Sentiment Speaks: I Expect 15-20% Returns For 2022 / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Avi_Gilburt

This week, I am keeping my post simple, as I am really short on time.

For those that follow my analysis through the years, you would remember that I turned strongly bullish as the S&P 500 approached the 2200SPX region in March of 2020. But, if you also remember that time period, the level of fear in the market even exceeded that seen at the March 2009 lows. So, when I suggested that the market would see a rally from 2200 to at least 4000, with an ideal target in the 6000 region, many simply could not believe what I was saying, as you can see here.

As you can see, most folks thought my view was “unmeaningful,” “absurd,” “insane,” or based upon “chart magic,” while I ignored the “common sense view.” However, my expectation was based upon our Fibonacci Pinball methodology of applying Elliott Wave analysis.

US Dollar Still Has the Green Light / Currencies / US Dollar

By: P_Radomski_CFA

The dollar looks poised for another rally, to gold’s dismay. So, what’s the price target for the greenback over the winter months?

While the consensus across the financial markets (especially at the beginning of the year) was that the U.S. dollar was destined for devaluation, I warned that the greenback would rise from the ashes. And with gold, silver, and mining stocks often moving inversely to the U.S. dollar, the latter’s ascent helped make the precious metals one of the worst-performing asset classes in 2021.

Moreover, after more dollar doubters emerged in October – and the precious metals rallied hard – the USD Index eventually cut through 94, 95, and then 96 like a knife through butter. And with the precious metals reversing sharply once again, I expect another rally to push the USD Index to ~98 over the medium term. Perhaps quite soon. And the implications for the precious metals sector, are bearish.

Stock Market Topping Process Roadmap / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2021

By: Monica_Kingsley

S&P 500 bulls missed a good opportunity to take prices higher in spite of the sharp medim-term deterioration essentially since the taper announcement. It‘s the Fed and not Omicron as I told you on Wednesday, but the corona uncertainty is reflected in more downgrades of real economy growth. There are however conflicting indicators that make me think we‘re still midway in the S&P 500 topping process and in for a rough Dec (no Santa Claus rally) at the same time, and these indicators feature still robust manufacturing and APT (hazmat manufacturer) turning noticeably down.

Still, it‘s all eyes on the Fed, and its accelerated tapering intentions (to be discussed at their next meeting) as they finally admitted to seeing the light of inflation not being transitory. The ever more compressing yield curve is arguably the biggest watchout and danger to inflation and commodity trades – one that would put question mark to the point of answering in the negative whether we are really midway in the topping process. Another indicator I would prefer turning up, would be the advance-decline line of broader indices such as Russell 3000. And of course, HYG erasing a good deal of its prior sharp decline, which I had been talking often last week – until that happens, we‘re in danger of things turning ugly and fast, and not only for stocks should 4530s decisively give.

The Lithium Breakthrough That Could Transform The Mining Industry / Companies / Lithium

By: OilPrice_Com

The lithium-technology space is in a desperate race to build a better battery in time to keep pace with an energy transition that is mainstreaming electric vehicles.

Certain companies in this space working on battery breakthroughs are soaring.

Quantumscape has gained nearly 60% in October thanks to the development progress in its solid-state lithium battery for EVs.

It’s all about coming up with a better battery that’s cheaper and holds its charge longer, and the rush to the finish line here has created no less than a “Battery Arms Race”.

But we think betting on which one of these companies will reach the solid-state commercial finish line first means nothing without serious breakthroughs in the exploration and extraction of one of the key metals that underpin the entire EV and energy storage equation: Lithium.

A lithium shortage could stall the EV push and halt the battery arms race in its tracks. As it stands, it is questionable at best whether lithium supplies can keep up with the forecast of a huge increase in demand.

VR and Gaming Becomes the Metaverse / Stock-Markets / Metaverse

Happy Thanksgiving holiday to all my patrons in honour of the 102 pilgrims who left England in 1620 on board the Mayflower to start their new lives in the New World, struggled to grow food until the native americans taught them how to use the land, followed in November 1621 by the first thanksgiving when the native americans were invited by the settlers to a big feast, though I don't think they were invited in subsequent years given outbreak of hostilities . Nevertheless a belated happy thanksgiving!

For Profit or for Loss: 4 Tips for Selling ASX Shares / Stock-Markets / Austrailia

By: Submissions

Selling a share on the stock market is as important and intricate as buying one, especially in the Australian market. It's challenging to let go of a profitable asset, and it's impossible to predict when stock prices rise or decline. Many beginners of the industry may regret selling their shares right before they grow, missing out on massive gains, while others may hold on to them for too long, expecting that a declining stock would recover.

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) currently lists approximately 2,000 firms, each with data on share prices and predicted growth or decrease. Shareholders gain or lose money based on how well a firm performs gradually; therefore, it shouldn't be underestimated. While perfectly planning your trades is impossible, many share-selling tips allow you to make wiser decisions. Selling your shares on the ASX? Here are four tips for selling ASX shares, whether for profit or loss:

INTEL Bargain Teck Stocks Trading at 15.5% Discount Sale / Companies / INTEL

By: Nadeem_Walayat

INTEL Bargain - 15.5% Discount Sale

The story for Integrated Electronics should have been for it's stock price to soar on CAPEX and Alder Lake processor success (of sorts). Instead the literal FOOLS took what was GOOD news to explain the 15% drop in Intel's stock price.

Fool.com - "The sudden price drop was triggered by the company's significant infrastructure investments"

Yeah, very aptly named fool. com. There are times what the market does something really stooopid by moving in the WRONG direction, this can either be to the upside (Nvidia) or the downside, and where Intel is concerned the markets just got this stock very badly wrong which gave us all 15.5% discount to where the stock was trading pre earnings as it fell from $56 to a low of $47.8, delivering a whopping 15.5% discount, breaching my long standing buying level of $48 and hugging the level for well over a week. And as I indicated earlier I started buying Intel as soon as it dipped below $50, at $49.9 and then again $48.3, tripling my Intel position to 4.5%.and since have continued to buy supplemental bits with likes of eTORRO at sub $50. Intel trades on an EC of 15 (super cheap), PE of 8.9, pays a 2.5% dividend AND buys back stock over time (12% over the past 3 years).

Well, the curve is flattening.

Omicron COVID Variant-Possible Strong Stock Market INDU & TRAN Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2021

By: Chris_Vermeulen

As we’ve been watching the markets recoil away from risks related to the new Omicron COVID variant and other factors, one simple thought keeps running through my head. What if the markets suddenly shift away from this panic selling and resume a rally/recovery trend – possibly pushing to new all-time highs before the end of the year?

Recently, the Put/Call ratio reached a moderate-high near 0.84. I interpret this as long traders buying protection in the event of an extended breakdown in the US/global markets. In the past, typically, when the Put/Call ratio reaches levels above 0.80 – the markets are very close to a bottom.

S&P 500 – Is a 5% Correction Enough? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2021

By: Paul_Rejczak

The S&P 500 bounced from the 4,500 level on Thursday, as it retraced most of its Wednesday’s sell-off. Was it a reversal or just another upward correction?

For in-depth technical analysis of various stocks and a recap of today's Stock Trading Alert we encourage you to watch today's video.

The broad stock market index gained 1.42% on Thursday after opening slightly lower and bouncing from the new local low of 4,504.73. The index fell the lowest since the October 19 and it went below its early September local high of around 4,546. Overall, it lost 5.04% from the Nov. 22 record high of 4,743.83. But Thursday’s trading session was bullish and stocks were gaining. Was it an upward reversal? This morning stocks are expected to open 0.3% higher after the mixed monthly jobs data release. For now, it looks like a correction within a downtrend. We may see a short-term consolidation following the recent declines.

The nearest important support level is now at 4,500. On the other hand, the resistance level is at 4,580-4,600, marked by the recent local lows. The S&P 500 remains below its short-term downward trend line, as we can see on the daily chart (chart by courtesy of http://stockcharts.com):

Hawks Triumph, Doves Lose, Gold Bulls Cry! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The hawkish revolution continues. Powell, among the screams of monetary doves, suggested this week that tapering could be accelerated in December!

People live unaware that an epic battle between good and evil, the light and dark side of the Force, hard-working entrepreneurs and tax officials is waged every day. What’s more, hawks and doves constantly fight as well, and this week brought a victory for the hawks among the FOMC.

The triumph came on Tuesday when Fed Chair Jerome Powell testified before Congress. He admitted that inflation wasn’t “transitory”, as it is only expected to ease in the second half of 2022. Inflation is therefore more persistent and broad-based than the Fed stubbornly maintained earlier this year, contrary to evidence and common sense:
