US dollar Index (DXY) Hanging Tough / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Gary_Tanashian

NFTRH subscribers and I have been keeping well aware of the implications of a) USD following its daily chart downtrend, or b) painting the July plunge as a bear trap and going bullish again. We’ll leave the detailed implications aside in this post and simply note that the process is still evolving.

From this NFTRH+ video update (now public), that projected the up move on July 19:

USD can break through it [clear resistance at the time, now support] and test the SMA 50 and still remain in a downtrend.

The upshot of soft market conditions for gold and silver is favorable buying opportunities for bargain hunters. Not only are spot prices down, but so are premiums on popular bullion products available through Money Metals.

BRICS, CBDCs, and Misdirection - with a Personal Perspective / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Andy_Sutton

The first portion of this piece, pertaining to personal experience with a political dissident is written entirely by Andy Sutton. The rest of the report is co-authored as is the case with much of the recent 'My Two Cents' work.

As a young first-year graduate student in 1997, I was required to take a class called 'Banking and Monetary Policy'. As I registered, the course itself sounded rather interesting - my undergraduate work had been in the field of what is now called Molecular Biology. It was an introductory course, taught by a professor who was in exile from South Africa.

The professor (name withheld) had been involved with that country's central bank at a moderately high level and had spoken out rather loudly against Apartheid. Facing the very real threat of either prison or execution, the professor sought political asylum in several countries. By a mere twist of fate, I had the honor of sitting under some of the best teaching I've ever experienced thanks to these unfortunate circumstances, full stop.

Current State of the UK Housing Market as Stocks Climb a Wall of Worry / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Dear Reader

The stock market is literally climbing a wall of worry, refusing to give any opportunity for the mass of investors sat on the sidelines to jump on board the AI gravy trains unless they buy the highs! Most AI tech stocks are now very overbought i.e. Nvidia, Microsoft, Apple, KLAC, AVGO which had an insane spike last week to $933 that triggered one of my distant SELL limit orders at $899 (current $812).

Whilst many are very overbought that does not mean they cannot become more overbought! This is the problem with TA, the charts tells you that markets are over bought and ripe for a correction, and so one anticipates a fat juicy correction to accumulate into on buying opps perhaps down to below S&P 4000, but as I often state Technical Analysis on it;s own is a coin flip, and worse still is that which most focus on the S&P which is a RED HERRING! Put the two together and you can see how easy it is for most investors to be constantly wrong footed by a. focusing on the S&P and b. not realising that TA is not that reliable going forward, in hindsight its perfect, but going forward it's at best 55/45. One has to go beyond the charts and crunch the numbers and understand the fundamentals that differ for every stock.

Global Copper market is entering an age of extremely large deficits / Commodities / Copper

By: Richard_Mills

Simply put, the road to reaching net zero begins and ends with copper. All infrastructure built to support renewable energy uses large amounts of copper, as the metal is a highly efficient conductor of electricity and heat.

To keep the energy transition going, millions of feet of copper wiring will be required for strengthening the world’s power grids, and hundreds of thousands of tonnes more are needed to build wind and solar farms. An offshore wind turbine, for example, contains 8 tonnes of copper per megawatt of generation capacity.

Electric vehicles, now a fast-rising source of demand, use over twice as much copper as gasoline-powered cars, which contain about 30 kg. Not to mention, there is more than 180 kg of copper in the average home, reminding us just how indispensable the metal really is.

Can The Stock Market Now Head To New All-Time Highs? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Avi_Gilburt

Last weekend, I questioned whether a crash can still set up for much later this year? And, the answer is, "of course." This week, I question the opposite - that is, can we still get to the all-time high? And, the answer is also "of course."

Now, I have probably confused most of you reading the opening paragraph. But, I will explain my point below, and I do not need to utilize Talmudic logic to provide the explanation.

But, before I provide my explanation, I want to again address a few fallacies that I read this past week.

Beneficiaries of US Dollar Weakness / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Richard_Mills

On July 9 the US dollar index (DXY) slipped under 100 for the first time since April 3, 2022, with cooling US inflation data released on July 12 maintaining the trend of a weaker greenback against a basket of other trade partner currencies.

As of July 14, the dollar was down nearly 13% from last year’s two-decade high and was its lowest level in 15 months. According to Reuters, the softer-than-expected inflation print supports views that the Federal Reserve is nearing the end of its interest rate-hiking cycle.

The Fed as Bad Bank Ultimate Irony / Interest-Rates / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Jim_Willie_CB

A historical paradigm shift is in progress. The process of de-Dollarization began with Russia in response to the Maidan coup in Kiev back in 2016. The Russian reacted in multiple ways, but the Eurasian Trade Zone grew. That was the Jackass name given, which has emerged as the BRICS Union in recent years. Numerous nations have followed the Russian lead in removing the USDollar from their trade payments and banking practices. The American observers have dismissed this trend as trivial and not enduring. They are wrong, dead wrong. In the last 18 months, the Japanese had dumped $240 billion in USTreasury Bonds over a 12-month period. They continue. They accumulate Gold in their banking reserves, thus following the BRICS theme, their operating policy. The macrocosm, by contrast, will feature 20 nations dumping USTBonds en masse, and acquiring Gold for banking reserves. The UAE will become a primary office for the conversion, their Dirham notably pegged to the USD.

Is The Stock Market Disconnected From Reality, Or Are You? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Avi_Gilburt

Ordinarily, I write one public article every week or so. However, after reading a number of other articles this week, and more importantly, reading the comments section, it has pushed me to consider writing an additional missive this week. And, within this article, I am going to address two topics which seem to have people looking the wrong way all too often.
“The Stock Market Is Disconnected From Reality”

One article after another and one comment after another presents us with the common perception that the stock market is not representing “reality.” And, the problem stems from the fact that all of these people view various economic factors as representing “reality,” which they then attempt to impute to the stock market price movement. And, when their factors do not match up with price action, their conclusion is that the stock market is not appropriately representative of “reality.”

Are Silver’s Liquidity Dreams a Mirage? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

The white metal is priced for an economic outcome that’s unlikely to materialize. 

AI Optimism

With liquidity-fueled assets outperforming in 2023, they’ve decided that QT and higher interest rates are not going to spoil their party. Moreover, with silver and gold also liquidity beneficiaries, they have adopted similar attitudes. However, while the gambit can persist in the short term, a major climax should unfold over the medium term.

Gold Stocks Technical Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold-stock technicals are dramatically improving, turning increasingly bullish.  After slumping to major support zones in the summer doldrums, the gold miners’ stocks have surged sharply in the past couple weeks.  That strong advance has achieved a decisive breakout above the main gold-stock benchmark’s key 50-day moving average.  Similar breakouts in recent years have heralded imminent big sector rallies.

Gold-stock price action has been really interesting lately, so I’ve written several recent essays analyzing it.  Between late September to mid-April, the leading GDX gold-stock ETF powered 63.9% higher in 6.5 months.  That amplified gold’s underlying parallel 25.7% upleg by 2.5x, right in the middle of the major gold stocks’ usual leverage range of 2x to 3x.  Then gold rolled over into a healthy pullback in early May.

GDX closed just shy of a new upleg high on May 4th, the day gold hit its own latest of $2,050.  But with gold getting seriously overbought and greed growing excessive, the yellow metal reversed to work off both conditions.  So over the next 1.8 months into late June, gold pulled back 6.9% to $1,908.  That perfectly-normal mid-upleg selloff was right in line with February’s 7.2% pullback, and restored sentiment balance.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Continues to pull stocks relentlessly higher towards a target of 4,500 by late July. so any correction is likely to be minor i.e. something like a couple of hundred S&P points, 4100 at the lowest, where right now instead of FOMO-ing I am eyeing the run to sub 4000 during that deep pull back into October, so far the market has done nothing to negate this long standing expectation.

CPI LIE, Fed Funds and Earnings and Recessions / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Nadeem_Walayat

CP LIE Tuesday

The smoke and mirrors annual inflation indices which mask the true magnitude of inflation pain that will run for the whole of this decade will Tuesday deliver a mix bag, a sharply lower headline rate falling towards 4%, whilst a stubbornly high core rate that will remain above 5% which is what the Fed is focused upon and thus likely to send yields higher. So the CPI should be a net bearish for stocks. Remember the Fed target is 2% not 5!
