Gold Market Gyrate on U.S. Government Shutdown Theatrics / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: MoneyMetals

Precious metals markets got hammered earlier this week as interest rates continued their relentless march higher.

The 10-year Treasury note recorded its highest yield since 2007. Meanwhile, the average conventional 30-year mortgage rate surged to 7.31% -- a level not seen since 2000.

Higher rates are putting pressure on housing and financial markets. They are also hitting consumers and small businesses.  For now, though, the economy hasn’t entered into a recession – at least not officially.

AI Regulation - Urgent Need For A Sherman Act Mark Two / Politics / AI

By: Christopher_Quigley

It is almost certain that the advent of  Artificial Intelligence (AI) will bring about even greater consolidation of power among the top American tech companies. These include Amazon, Meta (Facebook), Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, Apple, Tesla, Advanced Micro Devices, NVIDA and Intel.

This development presents a great opportunity for these companies but it also presents a great threat to the very fabric of capitalism and democracy. I believe, before it is too late, it is time that the power of these tech companies be broken and thus it is time for a new Sherman Act.

Stock Market correction full steam ahead / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Dear Reader

It's your lucky day as you get access to my latest stock market brief that was sent out to patrons Monday 25th September at 3am UK time.

Stock Market correction full steam ahead as the S&P ticks below the August low of 4340, closing Friday at 4320 thus continuing to target sub 4200 by Mid October with my pin point high probability target of 4150 now some 170 points away vs the S&P 2023 high of 4610 290 point above, thus about 60% of the correction is complete which has translated into huge price drops in target stocks from their 2023 highs such as AMD down 28%, ASML -24%, Qualcom & TSMC -23% and so on and even greater price drops in the higher risk stocks such as Roblox -46%, with even greater blood baths in the housing stocks.

British Pound Trend Trajectory / Currencies / British Pound

By: Nadeem_Walayat

YES all currencies in free fall but for the time being at least the UK is showing relative strength against the dollar (dead cat bounce), it will eventually weaken once more to fresh lows. However as the above illustrates it is all smoke and mirrors, why I don't fuss too much over the fx rate that I buy US stocks at because at the end of the day CASH IS LOSING VALUE regardless of the currency it is denominated in! So it's a bit of a fools errand to wait for sterling to rise before buying US stocks as we have witnessed during the past 9 months.

Still to eek out that extra few percent it can be prove a useful short-term exercise to have a rough idea where sterling is going, one of the check boxes to tick off in our pursuit of maximising profits.

Dead Ends Ahead for Silver Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

With the fundamental roadblocks adding up, silver confronts a bearish outlook at nearly every turn.

With the FOMC’s hawked-up SEP and Powell’s inflation focus upending several risk assets, rising real interest rates continue to weaken silver’s bull thesis. And with the Fed chief promising more of the same on Sep. 20, higher interest rates and/or a recession are both bullish for the USD Index. Powell said:

“The worst thing we can do is to fail to restore price stability, because the record is clear on that. If you don’t restore price stability, inflation comes back and... you can have a long period where the economy is just very uncertain, and it’ll affect growth. It... can be a miserable period to have inflation come constantly coming back and the Fed coming in and having to tighten again and again.”

Feds Seek Huge Royalties from Gold Miners in New Crackdown / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: MoneyMetals

Fears of inflation remaining stubbornly high, and interest rates going higher, rattled financial markets this past week.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve left its benchmark funds rate unchanged as expected. However, Fed chairman Jerome Powell left the door open for another hike in the near future. He also suggested rates may need to stay higher for longer than previously expected.

The Full Employment Lie / Economics / Economic Statistics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Today's narrative is that the Fed needs to force unemployment higher to cause demand destruction to bring inflation under control. Only one problem is that just as CPI is a FAKE inflation measure so is the Unemployment rate. They have fiddled the stats to such an extent that today's 3.6% unemployment is more like 10% for your grandfathers unemployment as shadow stats once more illustrates, Just look at the spread between REAL unemployment and fake UNEMPLIE 25% vs 3.6%! Seriously they are taking the piss, treating the masses like idiots! Unfortunately the Econofools perpetuate this LIE across MSM, so there you have it US unemployment rate is a lot closer to 25% than 3.65%

Gold, Mining Stocks Weather Fed Interest Rates Hike Cycle / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Fed hawkishness has been the rankling thorn in gold’s side for 18 months now.  Since the Fed started this monster rate-hike cycle, every material gold and gold-stock selloff has been driven by the threat of more rate hikes.  Those boost the US dollar, triggering gold-futures selling.  But the Fed’s hawkish spell over traders is waning.  Gold and the miners weathered this week’s latest hawkish FOMC meeting pretty well.

The Federal Open Market Committee catapulted its federal-funds rate up an extreme 525 basis points off zero in just 16.3 months into late July!  That blasted the FFR to a lofty 22.4-year secular high of 5.38%.  And this scorching rate-hike cycle was even more violent internally, with over 4/5ths of it happening in just 9.0 months into mid-December!  The Fed has never before hiked so big and fast from such low levels.

The resulting higher US yields ignited a parabolic moonshot in the US dollar.  In just 6.0 months into last September, the benchmark US Dollar Index skyrocketed 16.7%!  The leveraged gold-futures speculators who dominate gold’s short-term price action closely watch the dollar’s fortunes for their trading cues, and do the opposite.  So gold plummeted 20.9% in 6.6 months on heavy and relentless gold-futures dumping!

Why we won't see a repeat of the 1970's Rate Hikes / Interest-Rates / Global Financial System

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Doom merchants continue to run off to the 1970's rate hikes that culminated in eye watering 15% completely miss what's staring them in the face for why that CANNOT happen this time! It can't happen because Debt to GDP is triple that of the 1970's! 120% vs 40%, Raising the Fed funds rate to 15% again would be akin to a 45% rate today.

Inflation Bond Fire of the Vanities Breeds Opportunity

Fitch downgrades US Debt to AA+ prompts MSM clown narrative for triggering a rise in yields and falling stocks, there is ALWAYS a reason for why market moves, usually the same reason is used for either outcome up or down! The US debt downgrade that is the focus of MSM is a nothing burger as both rising yields and falling stocks were expected long before Fitch pressed the downgrade button as the stock market had transitioned form the topping phase off of the 4600 high set a few days ago (27th July) into a downtrend proper during August that is set to run into a window of late September to Mid October 2023 targeting a decline of at least 10%, so into and S&P range of 4180 to 4100 with many if not most target AI tech stocks set to see a decline typically by 20% off their highs, some more than others, and in fact many were already well into their downtrends coming into August such as AMD which topped at $132.5, which is why I often refer to the S&P as a red herring and caution against basing ones decisions off of the S&P, for instance there was no point waiting for S&P 4600 to trim AMD which FOMO 'd to $132.5 well over a month ago!

Gold Price and Gold Stocks’ Loud Silence / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

What a beautiful nothing! Nothing really happened on the markets on Friday, but due to the context of the previous days’ actions, it was profound.

The thing is that it was a day when markets took a breather and verified their previous moves.

Some price moves are accidental or triggered by geopolitical events. Sometimes, the markets pretty much “have to” move in a certain direction because the only rational thing to do is given the event that is happening. For instance, if a war breaks out in Europe, gold rallies. But it doesn’t mean that it’s going to stay up for long. If the rally was simply reactive and not based on a broader trend, then the rally is going to be invalidated.

Something Isn’t Adding Up as U.S. Debt Soars $2 Trillion in 2023 / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: MoneyMetals

Precious metals markets retreated last week as official U.S. employment data came in surprisingly strong.

The Labor Department reported that weekly jobless claims fell by 13,000 to a total of 216,000. Many economists had been expecting jobless claims to rise.

Of course, government economic data is subject to revision and to criticism for flawed methodology. But it still has the ability to move markets, at least in the near term.

Whilst it is going to take time to reach the heights of Elon Musk, nevertheless a good start will be in his first job in Cambridge working on Quantum Computers., which about 10 years down the road will be a game changer in terms of an exponential leap in compute power, which for better or worse will herald the emergence of super machine Intelligence's that are far beyond that of human intelligence.

This stock market sector has failed to recover since the Dow's Q1 correction

As you may know, in every bull or bear market, some stocks or sector lead while others follow. So, the "leadership" in the stock market works both ways -- in uptrends and down.

The rally in stocks since last November has been led by a relatively few big cap tech names, like Nvidia, Microsoft, Apple, Alphabet and Meta.

The pandemic a once in a 100 year event sparked rampant deficit spending to bailout the economy, that was 2020, whilst 2021 was nearly as bad! And 2022 did show an improvement by reverting back to pre-pandemic deficit era extremes. However the 2023 deficit is once more ramping up and running at twice the pre-pandemic extreme rate.
