Glaring Q.E. Failure Spotted - Money Velocity Is Falling Rapidly / Interest-Rates / Quantitative Easing

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Sometimes pictures are far more effective in communicating an important point. They are extremely effective in undermining respect and confidence, when in the cartoon format. A sequence of graphics struck the cognitive circuits recently. Long explanations will not serve well. The US Federal Reserve has been printing money since 2011 to cover USGovt debt securities in a frenetic manner. They have lost control. They call it stimulus, when it is actually the opposite. It does assist the speculators with nearly zero cost money to borrow, but one must be a club member to win loan grants.

High-Frequency Insider Trading / Stock-Markets / HFT

By: BATR

No one has ever claimed that the financial markets are a level playing field. Equities, bonds, currencies, options and futures are not arenas that operate by equivalent standards for all parties. Great fortunes were built not by chance, but on superior information, known to the few. Professional traders are not risk gamblers, but operate on the premise of special advantage. Through advance and proprietary techniques that reduce exposure hazards and provide exclusive head start triggers, which virtually guarantee profits, the elite firms dominate Wall Street.

Gold Prices 2014: Do What Goldman Does, Not What It Says / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) must really want to buy more gold; this week it repeated yet again its forecast for gold prices in 2014 to drop to $1,050 an ounce.

That might sound contradictory at first, but not when it comes to Goldman.

Jeffrey Currie, the investment bank's head of commodities research, has repeated his $1,050 target several times since last October, when he declared gold a "slam-dunk sell" along with other precious metals.

There Is No Biotech Stock Bubble; Here's the Real Story / Companies / BioTech

By: Money_Morning

Ernie Tremblay writes: Some analysts feel that the biotech sector's recent tumble is evidence of the biotech bubble bursting.

But they're wrong; the market is simply in a period of adjustment.

The premise behind the bubble idea is that biotech companies as a group are overvalued, that their market caps aren't supported by performance. In other words, that their perceived value is all smoke and mirrors.

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon writes: During the 30 years I've spent as a business journalist and financial columnist, I've developed a long list of personal axioms that have helped me identify "Best of Breed" investments.

These axioms touch on such topic areas as finance, marketing, intellectual property, and even competitive threats. But some of the most important of my personal investment aphorisms have to do with leadership and a company's management team.

Climate Change, Central Banking And The Faustian Bargain / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Gunther Schwab's Dance With Death

A safe interval after World War II, in the 1950s, the former Nazi intelligence officer Gunther Schwab published his massive-selling book “Dance With the Devil”. In it, he fine-tuned what Nazi propagandists found to be the “interesting bits” of CO2 global warming theory first developed by Svante Arrhenius at the end of the 19th century, which is essentially unchanged today. By a massive irony, Arrhenius welcomed human emissions of CO2 from industry, and the possible climate warming they produce because he thought they could fend off – but not prevent – the next and coming Ice Age.

Every Central Bank for Itself / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Mauldin

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.” – Mike Tyson

For the last 25 days I’ve been traveling in Argentina and South Africa, two countries whose economies can only be described as fragile, though for very different reasons. Emerging-market countries face a significantly different set of challenges than the developed world does. These challenges are compounded by the rather indifferent policies of developed-world central banks, which are (even if somewhat understandably) entirely self-centered. Argentina has brought its problems upon itself, but South Africa can somewhat justifiably express frustration at the developed world, which, as one emerging-market central bank leader suggests, is engaged in a covert currency war, one where the casualties are the result of unintended consequences. But the effects are nonetheless real if you’re an emerging-market country.

Stock Market Flash Crash Alert! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I have been attempting to find the reason for the triple bottom at 1814, 1815 and 1816. The best I can figure is that SPX is finding support at the 120-day moving average and Wave [ii] is expanding for another challenge of the trendline. It appears to be a desperate situation. The powers that be managed to re-cross the trendline in February, so there may be an attempt to duplicate that event.

Social Security, U.S. Treasury Stealing Every Last Penny From Americans / Politics / Taxes

By: Jeff_Berwick

All of a sudden the government lays claims to your savings. They can't prove you owe them a dime, but you're deprived due process. The legal bills become overwhelming, and so you let your money be stolen. You simply have no choice.

Sound outlandish? It's not. Not in the "Land of the Free" at least.

Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps / Politics / Eastern Europe

By: OilPrice_Com

As protests in Ukraine's eastern region turned violent on Sunday leading to the death of a Ukrainian security officer in a shootout with pro-Russian militia, Kiev threatens military action while Moscow flexes its geo-economic warfare muscles.

Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these groups have shown no sign of giving in.

Stock Market Cycles Middle Sections / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Ed_Carlson

An advancing Middle Section from early 2009 (top) pointed to two separate highs last week. The definition of a Middle Section is a period of time in which the Dow's rate of advance slows relative to what comes both before and after it. The two measuring points are points E and C. Point E is always the second-to-last rally in a Middle Section. Point C is the day the Dow drops down from a minor topping formation and begins the decline into the low of the Middle Section at point D. In this case, points C and D are identical.

Silver and Gold Miners Still Disappoint / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (full) in gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

Yesterday, we emphasized that the situation in the mining stock sector was bearish. We wrote the following:

One could argue that the general stock market also declined and it was this factor that caused the decline in miners. Yes, stocks declined overall, but if the mining stocks and precious metals sector in general wasn’t weak and about to decline anyway, miners would have not responded as decisively as they did. Miners underperformed gold once again on Friday and the short positions that we opened last week are already profitable.

Silver, Gold, and What Could Go Wrong / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

Richard Russell is almost 90 years old and has seen it all. He recently stated:

“My advice, as it has been, is to move to the sidelines while holding large positions in physical silver and gold. Regardless of what the markets do, silver and gold represent eternal wealth, and the bid to sleep undisturbed at night. No amount of money is worth the loss of peace of mind. The power of gold opened the American West and populated Alaska. Men have spent their lives searching for gold. You can own gold by the simple action of swapping Federal Reserve notes for the yellow metal. I advise you to do it.” Richard Russell – April 10, 2014

By Louis James, Chief Metals & Mining Investment Strategist

It is with a troubled heart that I look at the continued fighting in eastern Ukraine. I worry about my friends and students in the country who may well be in physical danger soon, if the conflict escalates. As an investment analyst, it’s the financial war the Russians seem quite willing to wage that has my attention.

It should have yours as well.

Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Pento

There’s been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market—and the economy as a whole—isn’t the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to the extent that investors can no longer distinguish reality from fiction.
