Are Stock Markets About to Repeat the 1929 Crash? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Graham_Summers

In the early 2000s, Alan Greenspan was worried about deflation. So he hired Ben Bernanke, the self-proclaimed expert on the Great Depression from Princeton. The idea was that with Bernanke as his right hand man, Greenspan could put off deflation from hitting the US. Indeed, one of Bernanke’s first speeches was titled “Deflation: Making Sure It Doesn’t Happen Here”

The US did briefly experience a bout of deflation from late 2007 to early 2009. To combat this, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke unleashed an unprecedented amount of Fed money. Remember, Bernanke claims to be an expert on the Great Depression, and his entire focus was to insure that the US didn’t repeat the era of the ‘30s again.

Shanghai Gold Exchange Withdrawals Running at Record Pace / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jesse

Withdrawals of gold from the Shanghai Exchange alone are at 1,958 tonnes for the year. The first chart below compares that pace to the prior years.

As I noted the other day, the mispricing of value and risk in the gold market, primarily driven by traders in London and New York, is calling a form of Gresham's Law into action.

For the week the SPX/DOW gained 0.85%, the NDX/NAZ gained 1.40%, and the DJ World gained 0.50%. On the economic front reports continue to be mixed to negative.

Gold Price Retracement / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Gary_Savage

At 12 weeks gold has probably produced it's first right translated intermediate cycle in almost 3 years. But after 2 big up weeks in a row and a test of the 50 WMA it would mot be unusual for gold to back off and regroup for a week or two before breaking through that resistance.

The way you treat your elderly today is how you will be treated tomorrow / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The fact that there will be no COLA (Cost of Living) increase in 2016 for 65 million recipients of Social Security will be acutely painful in Maine, which hosts the oldest population in the nation; and in Lincoln County, Maine, the second oldest county in Maine where public transportation is non-existent, community outreach is at best minimal and in which 25% of the population is age 65 and over. (1) Furthermore, 30% of Medicare beneficiaries — an estimated 17 million Americans — could see their Part B premium and deductible rise 52% because of provisions in the Social Security law.

Gold And Silver - Obama Is Bullish for Gold And Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

Obama is ultimately bullish for gold and silver. His erratic and often incompetent decision-making can only cause both PMs to rally. Here is part of the reason why:

Russia's entry into the Syrian conflict to fight real terrorists is as much a side-show as it is a pivotal power play and game changer for Putin in the Middle East [ME]. We continue to report on this for diametrically opposed reasons. It puts a glaring focus on Obama's political inabilities, similar to watching a satirical comedy sketch, while at the same time, there is the potential for WWIII, mostly due to the instability of US policies. This is a tragicomedy unfolding before us on the world's stage.

Stock Market At The Breakout On The S&P 500... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

We need a strong push up next week to clear with force, but here we sit right at the 2030 breakout on the S&P 500. It seemed as if we'd never back test this far up where the two-hundred day exponential moving average lives. Bull market normally don't die easily. I expected this type of move over time, although we haven't cleared yet, thus shouldn't think about testing back up to the old highs. Let's not put the cart in front of the horse. We need to clear powerfully, and then the odds would increase dramatically that we'd pay a visit towards S&P 500 2134 or those old highs. The bulls are trying although some of the daily charts are seeing their stochastic's get overbought, but not the MACD's or RSI's so there's hope.

Gold and Silver Price Test Initial Resistance / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The precious metals sector, after failing to breakdown has enjoyed a strong rally in recent weeks. Gold, Silver and junior gold miners (GDXJ) have reached their 200-day moving averages with senior miners (GDX) close behind. While this is a positive development it does not yet signal that the sector is embarking on a new bull market trend. There are a few things to keep an eye on over the days and weeks to come that can help us determine if a new bull market is taking shape.

Walmart’s Ominous Stock Market Signal / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: John_Rubino

Companies like Walmart and McDonalds’s have made their investors rich by squeezing costs and cutting prices. But it turns out that low-cost means low-wage, and as this model spread it contributed to the now-impossible-to-ignore migration of income and wealth from workers to owners of the capital and symbol manipulation skills that such a system demands.

Radical Gold Stocks Underinvestment / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

Despite gold blasting higher this month, this metal remains deeply out of favor among investors.  They have shunned it for years thanks to extreme central-bank money printing levitating stock markets.  This slayed demand for alternative investments, led by gold.  But the resulting radical underinvestment in gold today is super-bullish.  Vast capital inflows will be necessary to return gold investment to normal levels.

It’s impossible to overstate just how much gold is hated these days.  Investors’ opinions on it range from total apathy to fervently believing gold is the worst investment on Earth.  You can easily test this out in your own social circles.  The next time the markets or investing come up, ask if gold is now a good buy.  Everyone will say no, usually emphatically.  And if you advocate for gold, they’ll think you’re naive or stupid.

Long Term – 25+ years:  Examine the silver to gold ratio since 1990.  The ratio is currently low and appears to have bottomed.  Silver bottoms when the ratio bottoms.  Expect a multi-year rally.

However, in Hoisington's Third Quarter 2015 Review, economist Lacy Hunt makes the claim the Fed cannot print money. Let's take a look, emphasis mine.

Stock Markets Rolling Over / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX appears to have turned precisely at 9:34 am, 86 market hours after it reversed from its low on September 29. There was a combined PC/TC low due on October 1, so the bottom was 2 days early. It is possible that the perception that SPX could not make a new low that drove the buyers back into the market at the end of September. Once it took hold, the market took off.

Sunday is scheduled as a Primary Cycle high, so the turn is expected. Despite the aggressive nature of the call, you may wish to go 50% to as much as 100% short at this juncture. The market may linger her for the rest of this morning, but I don’t think that the retail options will do as well as the Index option fared this morning.

Donald Trump on Yellen, Clinton Sanders and Having World Leaders Call Him / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016

By: Bloomberg

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump sat down with host Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg TV's new flagship morning program, Bloomberg <GO> at Trump Towers in midtown Manhattan. In a wide-ranging interview, Trump discussed China, diplomacy, tech valuations, social security, corporate taxes, campaign finance, and defended his tax plan against criticism from John Kasich. He spoke about Janet Yellen, Carl Icahn, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.

On Janet Yellen's decision to delay hiking interest rates Trump said: "I think she's a very political person...what she's doing, and I'm sure that with the blessing of the president, because he doesn't want to have a recession or worse in his administration. Get him out of here, let him go to my golf courses - because I'm sure he'll be playing because I have the best golf courses, by the way and I have the best one in Washington - But he's going to go play golf and somebody's going to suffer... You know what they're doing, Janet Yellen, for political reasons, is keeping the interest rate so low that the next guy, the poor person who takes over as president could have a real problem because this is a political thing."

By: Gary_Tanashian

The title does not include a (?) after it and that is for a reason.  The gold sector’s fundamentals, both sector-specific and macro, are improving and this was not the case during the last exciting upturn in the sector circa summer 2014.

Back then, everything from Russia’s move into Ukraine to the Ebola scare were imagined to be sound drivers of the gold price.  This stuff proved, as expected, to be wrong when the whole complex made new lows in November of 2014 (prior to this year’s ultimate lows).

A quick update on GLD for the readers and by request…

GLD reported another nice build in reported gold holdings today – about 5 tons. That comes on the heels of a nice increase the previous day of some 7+ tons.

Since October 1, gold holdings have climbed from 689.2 tons to 700 tons. While not a huge build, nonetheless, this is what one wants to see if the gold price is moving higher as it shows investment demand from Western-based investors.

In this interview with The Gold Report, U.S. Global Investors CEO Frank Holmes talks about whether this is the right time to get back into gold, and Portfolio Manager Ralph Aldis reports on the performance of companies in the portfolio and shares some of the names in Australia that have done so well he almost feels guilty about how easy it is to make money off them.

As I write this, I am watching the Mets play the Dodgers and not watching the Democratic debate. I can catch the highlights on Twitter. I am half expecting someone to propose a tax rate of over 100%.

Something I’m sure will be suggested at some point is a financial transactions tax, a tiny tax placed on every single financial transaction: stocks, bonds, and derivatives.
