Why a Dow Stock Market Peak Will Boost Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Hubert_Moolman

During the Great Depression, both silver (1931) and the Dow (1932) reached a significant low. Both have rallied significantly since then. However, the structure of the rallies was very different.

To date, the Dow has significantly outperformed silver since those lows. The Dow increased 988-fold from the low to the all-time high, whereas silver has only increased 179-fold from the low to the all-time high.

QI Group: Leading With Integrity and Impactful Initiatives / Companies / Corporate News

By: Sumeet_Manhas

There are many different ways to lead, in both life and business. Some philosophies are more effective than others and often the “right” way to lead is also the hard way, or the expensive way. Perhaps that is why we see hope when a large, multinational conglomerate operates with the dignity of a socially conscious entity and not the brutal coldness of overt capitalism. QI Group, through its philanthropic efforts, global partnerships, and sustainability efforts, is that company.

Tesla Robo Taxis are Coming THIS YEAR! / Companies / Tesla

By: Nadeem_Walayat

I've covered Tesla at length over the past couple of years, promoting it to primary AI due to developments in it's AI and robotics divisions which has been manifesting itself in FSD updates that have long promised to turn every Tesla car into a fully self driving car, a defacto robo taxi! With the release of FSD 12.3 that future is just a mere months away as Musk tweeted.

Can this once-in-a-lifetime company continue to propel markets higher… or is the stock market now topping out?

Inflation Is Dead! Or Is It? / Economics / Inflation

By: MoneyMetals

Strike up the band and wave the victory banners! Inflation is dead!

Or is it?

The May Consumer Price Index (CPI) report was cause for optimism. But price inflation is like that stubborn weed in the driveway. Just when you think you’ve killed it for good, it pokes back through a crack.

Keep in mind that this time last year, we were also talking about a victory over inflation.

Investors Are Forever Blowing Bubbles / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Kelsey_Williams

“Blowing soap bubbles is child’s (investor’s?) play, but surprisingly, physicists (economists?) haven’t worked out the details of the phenomenon.” (source)

After all-time closing highs in both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 yesterday, investors drove both indexes higher again today following the release of the latest CPI number and the Fed’s decision to leave their target Fed funds rate unchanged for now. The bond market followed suit with bond prices increasing and the 10-year yield dropping to its lowest level in more than two months.

Stock Market Trend Forecast 2024 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As I voiced in my preceding analysis that failure of the Feb to March correction results in the following consequences -

a. It increases the probability for the other 2 corrections to materialise i.e. it was always a toss up whether we see 2 or 3 corrections during the year, where 2023 saw 2 corrections and thus tipped it in favour to expect 3 for 2024.

Gold Price Consolidating at High / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold has generally drifted sideways for a couple months now, consolidating high.  That lack of progress has significantly eroded sentiment, bleeding off greed and stoking bearishness.  But this healthy process is exactly what gold needed to rebalance sentiment.  After soaring to extremely-overbought levels in April, greed grew excessive.  The high consolidation since is bleeding that off, readying gold for another surge higher.

From mid-February to mid-April, gold blasted a powerful 20.0% higher in a remarkable breakout surge.  Fully 19 new nominal record closes were achieved in that short span, which really excited traders!  The lion’s share of that upside wasn’t fueled by gold’s usual primary drivers, speculators buying gold futures and American stock investors buying gold-ETF shares.  Chinese investors and central banks took the helm.

When Will the Boom/ Bust Rollercoaster End? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Michael_Pento

How can we know for sure the stock market is in a bubble? NVIDIA (NVDA) has been up 155% year to date; its market cap is over $3 trillion. The company has gained the equivalent of Amazon in just six months. And it is responsible for just over half of the S&P 500 gains this year. For comparison, the equal-weight S&P is up just over 4% this year. NVDA has added the equivalent of Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK) valuation in 6 weeks. BRK is the empire legendary investor Warren Buffet spent his entire lifetime building. NVDA is now worth over 10% of US GDP. That means AAPL, MSFT, and NVDA are now worth more than 1/3rd of our nation's entire economic output. All previous stock market bubbles share the following in common: a narrow stock market rally that focuses on a small group of stocks in a small sector of the economy that Wall Street is working overtime on promoting. AI fits this profile perfectly. I am not disputing that AI is going to be a productivity boom. Nevertheless, NVDA is now in a bubble. The stock is predicated on spurious and ephemeral demand for its chips, which will collapse in the economic downturn ahead.

Stock Market Trouble Lies Ahead. Are You Ready For It? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: EWI

By Steven Hochberg

Conversations about whether or not the Fed will cut interest rates any time soon continue to dominate the airwaves. But we are looking elsewhere for signs about where markets and the economy are headed.

Having observed market behavior for 45 years, we've got a lot of historical precedents to lean on. The emerging picture suggests that investors not paying attention may be caught unprepared for an impending change.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In a very similar pattern to the US Dollar, we had negative divergence in the bull bear % spread going into the end March S&P top which at 48 does not have far to go before it enters into an over sold state below 30, again suggesting that most of the decline is behind us. Remember we are in a bull market so bearish readings are going to be infrequent and short lived.

S&P 494 Stocks Then & Now / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Submissions

One of the extraordinary features of today’s equity market is the extreme concentration of S&P 500 in a handful of names. Most readers know that stocks like Nvidia and Microsoft, the “AI plays”, essentially drive the performance of the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. We were interested in seeing the degree of market concentration at the last bubble peak in 2000.  Historically, narrow market leadership portends future weakness in prices. So we did some quantitative work and put together some interesting charts updating our “S&P 495” chart series. We added one name, Nvidia, to create the Super 6 (Apple, Microsoft, Nvidia, Google, Amazon, and Meta), and compared these six to the remaining 494 stocks, the S&P 494.

As Stocks Bears Begin To Hibernate, It's Now Time To Worry About A Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Avi_Gilburt

For those who have followed my stock market analysis through the years, you would likely remember that, many years ago, I set a minimum long-term target for the SPX at 5350, with potential to rally as high as 6000SPX. In fact, many of you may also remember my expectation for a 30% correction, which I was publishing in late 2019 and early 2020, well before anyone even heard the word Covid. In fact, I even publicly suggested a short trade on EEM (because it had the best low risk, high probability set up of the index charts I was tracking at the time) back in February of 2020. And, then as the SPX dropped down to our long-term target in the 2200SPX region, I outlined my expectation for the market to bottom and begin a rally taking us north of 4000SPX. Read full article...

Gold, Silver and Crypto | How Charts Look Before US Dollar Meltdown / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Hubert_Moolman

The US dollar is on the brink of a major meltdown. This is apparent based on fundamental and technical analysis. Over the last 5 years, the US dollar has sustained some major damage through policy without losing much value against other fiat currencies.

In other words, the market has not yet taken into account the true (debased) state of the US dollar, but it will soon. Since the US dollar is probably the  most significant currency in the world, its meltdown will be devastating for many.

Therefore, it is imperative to find a safe haven during a US dollar meltdown. This is a monetary crisis and should preferably be addressed with monetary alternatives. Gold and silver are the premier monetary assets, so they should be an obvious choice.

Gold & Silver Get Slammed on Positive Economic Reports / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: MoneyMetals

Later on in today’s program, we have an important update on Money Metals’ efforts to enact pro-sound money laws across America. Six bills have become law this year, making 2024 the most successful year for our sound money efforts so far. So, stick around for an interview with our own Jp Cortez, coming up after this week’s market update.

Well, gold has been the headline performer in the first half the year – breaking records and commanding attention. But in the second half of 2024, silver may be set to steal the show.

Silver has been quietly outperforming gold since February. Silver prices surged to an 11-year high last month.

The junior monetary metal still has a long way to go in order to reach a new all-time high above $49 an ounce. Even if it doesn’t achieve that feat in 2024, it could still set a new record for a year-end closing price.

Gold Summer Doldrums / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks suffer their weakest seasonals of the year in early summers.  With traders’ attention normally diverted to vacations and summer fun, interest in and demand for precious metals usually wane.  Without outsized investment demand, gold tends to drift sideways to lower dragging silver and miners’ stocks with it.  Long feared as the summer doldrums, they can offer good buying opportunities.

This doldrums term is very apt for gold’s traditional summer predicament.  It describes a zone surrounding the equator in the world’s oceans.  There hot air is constantly rising, spawning long-lived low-pressure areas.  They are often calm, with little prevailing winds.  History is full of accounts of sailing ships getting trapped in this zone for days or weeks, unable to make headway.  The doldrums were murder on ships’ morale.

Crews had no idea when the winds would pick up again, while they continued burning through their limited stores of food and drink.  Without moving air, the stifling heat and humidity were suffocating on those ships long before air conditioning.  Misery and boredom grew extreme, leading to fights breaking out and occasional mutinies.  Being trapped in the doldrums was viewed with dread, it was a very trying experience.

Israel's Smoke and Mirrors Fake War on Gaza / Politics / Israel

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The smoke in mirrors drama in the middle east delivers an opportunity in target stocks Friday following Iran falling face first into the Fourth Reich's (FR) trap, where the fatal mistake was the failed retaliation to the FR blowing up the Iranian Embassy that allowed the FR to target Iranian nuclear facilities in respect of which Iran had to make the choice to either further be played like puppets on a string or pretend that the Israeli attack failed to do any damage, Intelligently Iran chose the later and thus threw up a smoke screen of having successfully shot down a couple of Israeli drones resulting in no damage on the ground, despite the reality that Iran's nuclear facilities will have got hit hard with bunker busting cruise missiles, where further escalation would have suck Iran deeper into an unwinnable conflict that clearly Iran does not have the stomach for or capability for. Lets not forget that the Fourth Reich has murdered over 40.000 Palestinian civilians in implementation of Operation Hannibal, about half of whom are children.

US Banking Crisis 2024 That No One Is Paying Attention To / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2024

By: Avi_Gilburt

Credit card and auto loans are increasing the risk on bank balance sheets.
The largest holders of these loans include JP Morgan, Citibank, and Capital One.
You have to engage in due diligence regarding the banks that house your hard-earned money to make sure you're not caught during a banking crisis.

A month ago, we published an article on consumer debt, which is becoming a huge issue for the banks from a credit quality perspective, as both credit cards and auto loans have posted sharp increases in delinquency ratios.
