Is Gold Price Action Warning Of Imminent Monetary Collapse - Part 2? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

The following is an update of a previous article: During the 2008 financial crisis the Fed significantly increased the US monetary base to keep the system from collapse. They are currently in a similar situation, and have done (is doing) the exact same thing.

Here is a chart of the US monetary base to illustrate the similarity:

Will America Accept the World's Worst Pandemic Response Government? / Politics / Pandemic

By: Patrick_Watson

Even in normal times, the news describes murders, accidents, wars, natural disasters, and the passing of once-famous celebrities.

Those deaths are usually just headlines. We don’t know the people, and we don’t expect to share their fate anytime soon. We note them and move on.

Ignoring the death news isn’t so easy in a pandemic that could sicken and possibly kill any of us, at any time. Yet people manage to do it. Some think it’s all exaggerated or fake. But even those who see the threat often tune out the news. They’d rather not think about it—and understandably so.

The virus doesn’t care what people think. It will, if given opportunity, try to infect them. A small percentage of those infected will die. Will others care?

Stock Market Technical Patterns, Future Expectations and More – Part II / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Continuing this multi-part research article, today we are going to explore some more immediate (shorter-term) technical setups.  If you missed the first part of this research article, please take a minute to review it before continuing because there is quite a bit of information and related article links that are very important for you to understand this next article. You can view it here.

In the first part of this article, we discussed how our team evaluates a proper market perspective and how we build a consolidated narrative for our subscribers.  Some times, it is not easy for us to build a suitable narrative or decide on risk factors as our team may not completely agree with one another.  At times like this, we’ll often decide that no action is better than taking any action at all.  Generally, though, our team is able to adopt a consensus narrative related to portfolio allocation levels, general market trends and specific target trade setups for the next 5 to 10+ trading days.

Trump White House Accelerating Toward a US Dollar Crisis / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Dan_Steinbock

As US economy is heading toward its disastrous 2nd quarter results, the Trump administration is considering the expansion of the trade war to finance, which could destabilize the US dollar and derail the post-pandemic global economy.

After its failure in the COVID-19 containment and the expected -53 percent plunge of real GDP growth in the 2nd quarter, President Trump’s re-election campaign is in serious trouble. To deflect the blame, his administration has launched a series of provocative measures against China thereby fueling elevated bilateral tensions.

Worse, the White House is reportedly considering moving from a bilateral trade war to an effort to exclude China from the dollar-denominated international payment network. In Beijing, that would be seen as weaponization of US dollar.

Why US Commercial Real Estate is Set to Get Slammed / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: EWI

Commercial real estate investors are in an especially precarious position should another financial crisis unfold.

A July 18 Marketwatch article titled "The open secret in commercial real estate is that owners regularly take cash out of properties ..." says:

Borrowers, ahead of this [year's] downturn, pulled more equity out of U.S. commercial buildings than ever before. ...

Debt relief conversations already started in April ... between the hardest-hit commercial property borrowers and their lenders.

Since then, delinquent commercial mortgage-backed securities loans have climbed to nearly 10%, rivaling the worst levels of the global financial crisis [in 2007-2009].

Gold Price Blows Through Upside Resistance - The Chase Is On / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Avi_Gilburt

Last week, I put out an article outlining my expectation for a pullback in GLD before we head to the 200+ region. Within the comments section, I outlined my plan as to how I am going to play for a potential pullback. However, that pullback has not yet materialized.

For those that have followed me closely for years, you know that I have been heavily long physical metals and mining stocks since I started accumulating them again in 2015, after calling the top in 2011.

Is Crude Oil Price Setting Up for a Waterfall Decline? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: The_Energy_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund charts oil and discusses what he sees ahead for the commodity.

Compared to the wild volatility that we witnessed back in the spring, trading in oil has become very light and subdued, with volatility in it dropping to a very low level, and as a result many traders are losing interest in it. It is quiet—too quiet—and complacency towards it is now rife, but as we will see, there are signs that this may all be about to change, and fast.

We'll start by looking at the year-to-date arithmetic chart for Light Crude on which we can see all of the dramatic developments this year. After deteriorating early in the year, the oil price accelerated to the downside, plunging early in March with a big gap down and then it continued to weaken into mid-April when a sudden huge drop left some contracts not just worthless, but actually having negative worth, meaning that if you took delivery you had to in effect pay someone to take it away, for an amount that exceeded what the oil was actually worth. Clearly, this was a situation that was untenable because so much depends on the oil price, so the Fed and the Military–Industrial complex worked all the levers at their disposal to get the price back up again, which of course included creating trillions of new dollars to throw at the problem, and to throw at the markets generally, especially the "window dressing" FAANG stocks. Up to now this has worked and we have seen a recovery rally of astounding proportions in the stock markets, especially the tech sector, and a respectable recovery in the oil price, and what makes all this even more astounding is that it has happened as the real world economy has been frozen by widespread lockdowns, the main purpose of which is to kill the velocity of money so that the Fed can print trillions and buy up everything without it feeding through immediately into hyperinflation—that will come later.

Stock Market Technical Patterns, Future Expectations and More / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Chris_Vermeulen

We get a lot of questions from individuals every week. Our research posts contain a lot of varied examples of Technical Analysis, Economic Data Points, Advanced Price Theory, and other more obscure analysis techniques.  Yet, sometimes our readers want to know more – how do we read the tea leaves to try to adopt a consensus approach to trading, investing, and hedging the global markets at times like these?

The easiest answer is that we are a team of technical researchers and analysts.  Every day we are watching our proprietary modeling systems, various market symbols, and technical/price setups that occur throughout the globe.  Because we specialize in US stocks, ETFs, and Futures, our concern is how the US market will react to these impulses.  Having said that, we explore ideas about how capital will flow from one asset class to another over time as various rotations in the global market take place.

Every week, we communicate different points of view and do so across different time frames which provides you with a full view of long and short term expectations and potential moves for stocks and commodities.

Why Big Money Is Already Pouring Into Edge Computing Tech Stocks / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: John_Mauldin

By Justin Spittler : Why didn’t coronavirus sink America into a depression? The answer can be summed up in two words, and it’s not “stimulus checks.”

As you know, lockdowns have wrecked restaurants, hotels, and airlines. But millions of Americans who can do their jobs from a computer haven’t missed a day of work. They’re working from home, which would’ve been impossible not all that long ago.

We have “the cloud” to thank. Most folks are vaguely familiar with the importance of “the cloud.” But it’s no exaggeration to say it’s a top 3 tech breakthrough of the last 20 years, right up there with the smartphone.

I Hate Banks - Including Goldman Sachs / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Avi_Gilburt

For many years, I have noted to the members of Elliottwavetrader that I have not been a fan of banks. In fact, they are on my list of stocks that I intend on shorting once we move towards the 2023 time frame.

But, while many are focused upon the upside potential in various banks in the coming 2-3 years, I have been quite concerned about the goals of many of these banks, based upon some of the moves they have made over the past few years.

As an example, a few years ago, Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) opened its door to public accounts. This was a major shift in Goldman’s business practices, which had many scratching their head. But, I was not scratching my head, as it made perfect sense to me. In fact, I even wrote about Goldman’s “unexpected” move, and why they likely moved down this path.

NASDAQ Stock Market Double Top & Price Channels Suggest Pending Price Correction / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our research team continues to attempt to navigate the difficult market dynamics ahead as traders’ concerns related to continued global economic functions persist.  We believe the US stock market has rallied well beyond sustainable levels and the recent move in the US Dollar and Precious Metals has issued a clear warning that global traders are not buying into the current valuation levels of the major indexes.  The NASDAQ (NQ) has rallied to new all-time highs at a time when a majority of the US Stock Market is contracting and concerns about future earnings/revenues continue to shock investors.  It is almost as if a large group of traders piled into the “Fed Recovery” message and ignored the fact that the COVID-19 virus event is vastly different than any other price correction we’ve experienced over the past 40+ years.

Silver Price Surge Leaves Naysayers in the Dust / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

With silver breaking out decisively to the upside, bears are running for cover.

We had noted in our July 13th News Alert, “We are paying especially close attention to the bull vs. bear tug-of-war in the silver market around $19/oz. If the bulls yank prices decisively above that level on a strong close, short covering by capitulating bears could help drive a powerful breakout rally.”

That’s exactly what happened. The rally really accelerated once the $20/level was taken out last Monday. The bears have capitulated big time!

Also being forced to re-think their positions are gold-only bulls within the precious metals camp. Although they represent a minority viewpoint, some stubbornly cling to the view that only gold is sound money. They view silver as an industrial metal and tend to shun it as an investment.

UK Supermarket Covid-19 Shop - Few Masks, Lack of Social Distancing (Tesco) / Politics / Shopping

By: N_Walayat

Anika's first supermarket shop in 4 months due to Covid-19. We're all masked up but most shoppers have still not got the message! And in Another sign that the UK is fast relaxing it's covid-19 infection spread mitigation measures is supermarkets such as Tesco scrapping their one way shop arrow systems. Whilst it remains to be seen if the country is sleep walking towards another second more deadly pandemic peak in a few months time. Nevertheless Tesco and other supermarkets cannot be blamed for taking such actions because most shoppers had already abandoned following the rules many weeks ago, especially following revelations that government ministers and advisors themselves had failed to follow social distancing rules such as Dominick Cummings all without any consequences.

Gold Makes Record High and Targets $6,000 in New Bull Cycle / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Jason_Hamlin

The gold price made a new all-time nominal high today at $1,945 per ounce. This move should not come as a surprise to anyone paying attention to the current financial landscape. The FED has injected an unprecedented amount of new money/debt into the economy since March in efforts to avoid a collapse from the impact of the Covid-19 virus and subsequent restrictions of business activity globally. Over $6 trillion in stimulus so far is roughly double the entire amount injected during the financial crisis of 2008/09. And they are just getting started.

The Federal Reserve has stated that stimulus efforts will last for years and they have committed to do “whatever it takes” to keep the economy afloat. The Federal Reserve balance sheet has shot from $4 trillion pre-crisis to $7 trillion today. This is the highest level on record by a wide margin and the fastest it has ever increased. And this is before the 2nd round of stimulus, which is currently being negotiated. While there are plenty of dollar bulls amidst a global dollar shortage, they have been incorrect in their bullish outlook thus far. The dollar index has dropped from a high of 103 on March 20th to just 94, a significant drop in just a few months to the lowest level since September of 2018.

Each of the two previous times this has occurred after a long run up in stock prices, it has been part of a cyclical change to a cycle favoring gold over stocks for a decade or more thereafter.

Anatomy of a Gold and Silver Precious Metals Bull Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Rambus_Chartology

During the bull market years between 2000 and 2011 the US dollar and currencies played a key role in the PM complex bull market. Tonight I would like to go back and visit some of these old charts and see how they pertain to our current bull market.

Lets start with a simple GOLD:USD ratio chart that goes back to the 2011 all time high in gold. The bottom for the ratio came in toward the end of 2015 and has been slowly rising  in what we can now call a bullish rising 5 point rising wedge reversal pattern. The 2011 bear market in the ratio ended in June of 2019 when the top rail was broken to the upside. Less than a year later the price action took out the top rail of the blue bullish rising wedge reversal pattern and is starting to impulse higher. This is a very bullish development.
