UK Schools Lockdown 2021 Covid Education Crisis - Home Learning Routine / Politics / Coronavirus 2021

By: N_Walayat

Here's what it's like for infants, junior and secondary school pupils trying to learn at home during lockdown 2.0. The incompetent and negligent mismanagement of the Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in chaos and disorder at every corner of the failure of the education system to respond to the pandemic. First we have the 6 month lockdown from March to September 2020, as the schools FAILED to reopen in June, despite there being little or not risk of infection from the virus during the summer months. That at the start of 2021 was followed by the catastrophic third wave as the UK government once more lost control of the virus resulting in the panic shutdown of all schools, which whilst necessary to bring the pandemic under control nevertheless is once more doing huge damage the life prospects of Britain's school children as this vide of what the children of Sheffield's schools are experiencing (Dobcroft example), as lockdown 2.0 could continue until after EASTER 2021!

Bitcoin Price Crash: FCA Warning Was a Slap in the Face. But Not the Cause / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: EWI


See what 'allowed' for a turn down in the immediate future

In case you blinked over the last two days, bitcoin bulls had their hat abruptly handed to them when the cryptocurrency plummeted a jarring 26% in 48 hours.

The grisly details (or, here's how this bearish opportunity unfolded, for the few traders who were ready):

  • The selloff was the market's worst two-day decline since the start of the coronavirus in March 2020.
  • The crash took prices $10,000 down from their all-time high near $42,000 set on Friday, January 8.
  • And, all told, the move erased nearly $185 billion from bitcoin's value (Jan. 11 Bloomberg); for reference, that's the entire net worth of the richest man on Earth, Elon Musk.

US Coronavirus Pandemic 2021 - We’re Going to Need More Than a Vaccine / Politics / Coronavirus 2021

By: Patrick_Watson

Houston, we have a problem,” said the Apollo 13 crew.

Half a century later, Houston is a problem as some of its largest hospitals reach 100% ICU occupancy. Ditto for many other cities around the US.

This is a problem and it’s getting worse.

Meanwhile, the same pandemic that is filling hospitals is also killing jobs. The latest employment report showed the US lost 140,000 jobs in December. We are still down almost 10 million jobs since last winter.

By: MoneyMetals

As investors await the incoming Biden administration and the uncertainties that a transition of power may bring, precious metals markets regained some ground through Thursday’s close but have pulled back again on Friday, especially silver and platinum.

Precious metals prices and financial markets have seemingly been unaffected by recent political turmoil. Investors have been nonchalant in the face of Capitol unrest and a second impeachment of President Donald Trump – not to mention fresh new records in daily COVID deaths.

Who Will NEXT Be Removed from the Internet? / Politics / Censorship

By: MoneyMetals

On Wednesday, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump for a second time – this time with just a few days left in his term.

It was a mostly symbolic rebuke. Financial and precious metals markets barely budged on the news.

The Senate, which alone has the power to convict and remove an impeached President, isn’t even expected to hold a trial until after Trump leaves office and Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th.

Of much wider significance for the future of American politics – and for the free, open exchange of ideas on an array of controversial subjects – is the unprecedented mass, coordinated de-platforming of President Trump and some of his supporters by social media companies.

Gold/SPX Ratio and the Gold Stock Case / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Gary_Tanashian

Gold/SPX indicated the excess and the gold miners are correcting that excess

In and around the August time frame we noted (in NFTRH) high risk to the gold miners because the price of HUI had gotten a million miles ahead of gold’s ratio to the stock market. That was typical bit in the mouth enthusiasm by the gold “community”, as even Warren Buffett bought a gold stock (and signaled a top).

This chart (and another I have like it) revealed to us in real time the excessive condition. Could the miners have just kept going, into a bubble of their own? Sure, but very unlikely. Amid the bubble making elsewhere gold, silver and the miners are doing the right thing… and they are doing nothing that they did not do several times in the bull market circa 2001-2007. Those bull market grinds were interminable, but ultimately gave way to grand new highs when the healthy corrective work was complete.

Higher Yields Hit Gold Price, But for How Long? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

The price of gold remains at $1,850, and the key drivers are higher bond yields and a stronger risk appetite.

Last week, the yellow metal tanked below $1,900 again, and it hasn’t rebounded since the plunge – instead, the price of gold has stayed at around $1,850.

Why Nvidia Is My “Slam Dunk” Stock Investment for the Decade / Companies / AI

By: Stephen_McBride

What was the most important financial event of 2020? Most folks would tell you it was the coronavirus pandemic and the economic devastation caused by government lockdowns.

But that’s wrong. For investors, the most life-changing thing that happened last year has to do with computer chips. In 2020, for the first time ever, the value of the computer chip industry surpassed that of the oil industry. The 30 largest semiconductor companies are now worth $2.5 trillion combined. Compare that to $1.7 trillion for the 30 largest oil firms.

This sent an important signal to investors. Oil is no longer the most important resource is the world. Computer chips are. Longtime RiskHedge readers know computer chips, also called semiconductors, are the “brains” of electronics.

Three Financial Markets Price Drivers in a Globalized World / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Do you want to know how gold will be doing soon? Or the USDX? You have to look at the German and French economies. You may ask “What? How can they be tied together?” Well, the globalization of markets is one of the core foundations of the modern world. With everything interrelated, nothing in economics can be examined in a vacuum state. That includes the three precious metals price drivers: stocks, yields and currencies.

The EUR/USD currency pair is a perfect example of this interconnectivity. Being the most popular and most traded currency pair in the world, the EUR/USD is influenced by many factors, including the price action in the USD Index as well as the strength of the European and American economies at any given time. The same level of interconnectedness can be applied to the other price drivers.

Let’s take a fundamental look at stocks, yields and currencies.
