Credit Card's Loyalty Stretched as Cash Back Rewards Culled / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Shoppers looking to get a little back when they spend often turn to reward or cashback credit cards. Unfortunately, if customers look closely at the rewards they get when they spend, they might feel they are getting get back very little back on their spending, particularly in comparison to a few years ago.

One reason for this decline stems from a shake-up in the credit card market in 2015, when the EU interchange fee cap ruling was implemented. Its purpose was to save consumers money at the tills by capping the transaction fee for using their card. Yet, as a result, consumers are now facing a cull in the number of rewards and cashback credit card offers, as providers pull back their generosity.

Stock Market Study Shows Why You Shouldn’t “Sell in May and Go Away” / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Troy_Bombardia

You’ve probably heard of the saying “sell in May and go away”. This piece of conventional trading “wisdom” states that the stock market is seasonally weak from May to September while it’s seasonally stronger from October to April. Hence you should not own stocks from May to September. From a seasonality perspective, that is only partially true.

Since the 1980s, a new generation of chaos capitalists have been undermining the progress of emerging economies. Under the pretext of “efficient markets,” they seek to exploit real or perceived weaknesses.

Recently, hedge funder Jim Chanos appeared on CNNMoney’s Markets Now program that was promoted heavily on the CNN: “Chanos got China right.”

Transportation Stocks Are Not Moving and What It Means / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Pay attention to the price movement of the transportation sector for a clearer picture of the future rally

If you have been reading and following are posts this year then you’ve seen the power of our Advanced Dynamic Learning price modeling system and how well we are able to find key market moves.  On Monday, the markets stalled, providing further evidence of the future breakout move.  The Banking Index was up 0.43%.  The $INDU was off by 0.06% while the ES, NQ and YM were mixed.  The Transportation Index was up 0.40% while the US Dollar is about to break above the $91.00 level on an attempt to move higher.  These moves are telling us that the US economy is about to break higher in an attempt to retest recent highs – just as our ADL predictive price modeling system has been warning.

Artificial Intelligence Defines the Political News Narrative / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: BATR

Understanding the reasons why mainstream political accounts express such a disconnect from facts, evidence and believability is compounded by the techniques of programmed reporting often absent of human judgment and ethics. The foremost propaganda rag for deceit,  disinformation and indoctrination, The Washington Post, is dedicated to mind control and does not even attempt to mask their publication as objective journalism. Utopia for Jeff Bezos, strives to perfect the synthetic technological revolution that inserts AI as the future of mankind. Joe Keohane in WIRED presents What News-Writing Bots Mean for the Future of Journalism.

Stock Market "Oops, They Did It Again" / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

See "a classic capitulation to a rising trend"

History often repeats. So, one way to make an educated guess about the future is to look at the past.

With that in mind, let me share with you a valuable observation from our market analysts: Overseas investors tend to jump into U.S. stocks near tops, and sell heavily near bottoms. In other words, their market actions usually are a contrarian indicator.

Digital Currencies Are Reshaping Forex Markets / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Submissions

Peter Lloyd writes: For many traders and investors, the forex market has always been a shining example of what a financial exchange should be: a truly global, highly liquid and decentralized platform where the diversity of participants ranges from sovereign central banks to institutional investors and from investment banking firms to day traders.

It so happens that this view of an ideal market is being augmented by the growing interest in cryptocurrency exchange platforms, which more closely resemble a "perfect market."

Fox in the Henhouse: Why Interest Rates Are Rising / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Ellen_Brown

The Federal Reserve calls itself independent, but it is independent only of government. It marches to the drums of the banks that are its private owners. To prevent another Great Recession or Great Depression, Congress needs to amend the Federal Reserve Act, nationalize the Fed and turn it into a public utility, one that is responsive to the needs of the public and the economy.

On March 31 the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rate for the sixth time in three years and signaled its intention to raise rates twice more in 2018, aiming for a Fed funds target of 3.5 percent by 2020. LIBOR (the London Interbank Offered Rate) has risen even faster than the Fed funds rate, up to 2.3 percent from just 0.3 percent 2 1/2 years ago. LIBOR is set in London by private agreement of the biggest banks, and the interest on $3.5 trillion globally is linked to it, including $1.2 trillion in consumer mortgages.

Stocks and Bonds, This is Not a Market / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Raul_I_Meijer

“[Price discovery] is the process of determining the price of an asset in the marketplace through the interactions of buyers and sellers”, says Wikipedia. Perhaps not a perfect definition, but it’ll do. They add: “The futures and options market serve all important functions of price discovery.”

What follows from this is that markets need price discovery as much as price discovery needs markets. They are two sides of the same coin. Markets are the mechanism that makes price discovery possible, and vice versa. Functioning markets, that is.

Given the interdependence between the two, we must conclude that when there is no price discovery, there are no functioning markets. And a market that doesn’t function is not a market at all. Also, if you don’t have functioning markets, you have no investors. Who’s going to spend money purchasing things they can’t determine the value of? (I know: oh, wait..)

Happy Anniversary Silver Investors! / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2018

By: P_Radomski_CFA

The silver volume that we saw last week was huge and we don’t mean only the one that accompanied the sizable daily price spike. The volume was huge also if we take the entire week into account. In fact, there was only a single week when silver rallied on volume that was bigger than what we saw during last week’s rally – ever. That was the 2011 silver top, when the emotions reached their zenith. But surely that was just a coincidence as there’s nothing else that connects these cases, some will claim, forgetting about the thing that is more important than price – time. The 2011 top formed on Monday, April 25th. You’re are reading this on Monday, April 23rd. Time is almost in perfect tune. Will this be a happy anniversary? It will, for those who are prepared.

Last year, the tax relief's for buy-to-let (BTL) landlords were cut, meaning that they had to start assessing their options – and becoming a limited company was one of them. With more demand for this type of company, research from moneyfacts.co.uk shows that providers have stepped into the breach and are now offering more fixed products to limited companies than ever before.

Silver Squeeze, Gold Fails & GDX Breadth / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

It was an interesting week in the precious metals complex. There appeared to be the start of a short squeeze in Silver (hedge funds were heavily short) but it ceased at important resistance. Meanwhile, Gold closed the week on a weak note, losing $1340-$1350. The gold stocks, like Silver closed the week below technical resistance. The price action in the complex continues to suggest that a breakout in Gold is the key to unleashing strong outperformance from Silver and the gold stocks.

US Economy Is Cooked, the Growth Cycle has Peaked / Economics / US Economy

By: Adam_Taggart

Hours ago, European Central Bank chief Mario Dragho conceded: "The growth cycle may have peaked"

Of course, those paying attention to the data already knew this. Our politicians and central planers have been peddling to us the fantasy that the global economy is strengthening, finally ready to fire on all cylinders after nearly ten years of dependence on monetary stimulus.

That just ain't so.

Inflation, With a Shelf Life / Economics / Inflation

By: Gary_Tanashian

For the last few weeks we’ve used the conditions noted in the graphic below as a guide. Well, the ‘inflation trade’ (IT) popped last week and that included cyclical metals (as well as silver) ramming upward vs. gold and TIP rising vs. TLT & IEF.

As for credit conditions, there is little imminently raising caution flags as commercial lending and risk taking (as indicated by high yield junk bonds) continue apace, but the note still stands on the bigger picture as the credit system and money supply are gumming up with the Fed in quantitative and Fed Funds tightening mode while the velocity of money in the economy maintains a secular downtrend.

Stock Market Predictive Modeling Is Calling For A Continued Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Chris_Vermeulen

We are constantly amazed that our Advanced Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system has been incredibly accurate over the past 7+ months.  Our researchers, at www.TheTechnicalTraders.com, called the early 2018 rally weeks in advance.  We called the resistance levels and top in late January.  We called a February 21~27 market top formation, called the market bottom on March 28, and last week called the market top to the hour and locked in 17.7% trading a simple 3x index ETF.  Today, we are going to further illustrate the power and capabilities of the ADL price modeling system and what we are expecting over the next 7~10+ trading days.
