Election Forecast 2015 - Debates Boost Labour Into Opinion Polls Seats Lead / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Conservatives instant boost of Thursday night (26th March) evaporated within hours as several days on the main beneficiary where the opinion polls are concerned is Labour who have now once more flip flopped into the lead, though most still put both parties virtually neck and neck as clearly the people of Britain are indicating they do not trust either party to govern on their own, perhaps because they have become too similar, and therefore it looks like being a choice between a continuation of the Conservative - Lib Dem Coalition or an Labour - SNP Axis.

Economic Recovery, Geopolitics and Detergents / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Increasingly over the past year or so, when people ask me what I do, and that happens a lot on a trip like the one I’m currently on in the world of down under, I find myself not just stating the usual ‘I write about finance and energy’, but adding: ‘it seems to become more and more about geopolitics too’. And it’s by no means just me: a large part of the ‘alternative finance blogosphere’, or whatever you wish to call it, is shifting towards that same orientation.

Gold Trading Week Ahead - 30 March 2015 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Harley_Salt

Gold ended Friday on a weaker note following a speech by Fed Chair Janet Yellen in which she noted that the Fed should not wait until the 2% inflation target is met, hinting that US interest rates might rise sooner than many expect. This saw the dollar strengthen and precious metal prices fall. Gold however still managed to put together another week of gains, it has gained positive momentum since the FOMC meeting two weeks ago.

U.S. Dollar, Commodities and the Gold Miners GDXJ ETF Analysis / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

In this Weekend Report I would like to show you some charts for Natural gas, oil and the GDXJ. First though lets take a quick look at the US dollar and the Euro which have started to consolidate their most recent near straight line moves. The monthly chart for the US dollar shows the impulse move out of the big base with a string of nine white candles all in a row. That's pretty impressive. When looking at the last white candle you can see a possible long wick forming which could be bearish. There are still two more trading days left for this month so things can change but it sure looks like the US dollar is looking for a place to rest for awhile.

David Cameron Election 2015 Debate Facts Check - Employment, Immigration, Debt & Deficit / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

David Cameron having chickened out of a head to head debate with Labour Leader, Ed Milliband, has left voters with a 20 minute interview with the out of retirement Jeremy Paxman. The Prime Minister faced a barrage of questions concerning the Con-Lib governments five year track record that put David Cameron on the defensive on employment, debt, deficit and immigration that this article and video fact checks.

Andrew Snyder writes: It’s a tough subject. Nobody wants to admit they spent years of their lives - and thousands upon thousands of dollars - in an effort that may quite easily turn out to be detrimental to their financial well-being.

On Friday, I spoke to a small church group about what it takes to build lasting, liberating wealth. It was the second time we met and I knew going into the evening that it wouldn’t be easy.

Stock Market About Ready to Crash! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Brad_Gudgeon

Last time, I talked about there being one more rally left and then the market would drop big. I see no change in that outlook (after looking over the Gann Cycles from last Monday, I have determined that the next top would be April 2). I also talked about the false breaks on the rising wedges of various indices.

In this article, we are going to go over some of those charts, including the daily MACD, Chaiken's Money Flow as well as silver. Yes, the reason I want to go over the weekly chart of silver, is to look at the some of the reasons why we are going to have huge swings of the markets over the next weeks, months and years. The problem is, we are dealing with deflation, but at the same time, countries are inflating their currencies like mad trying to head that threat off.

Investing From Complexity to Chaos, From a Trickle to a Flood / Stock-Markets / Investing 2015

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: As a volatility trader, I loved seeing stocks drop 2% last week after having risen 3%. But as a credit trader and student of market behavior, I know all too well that this type of volatility is a forecast of stormy seas ahead.

Markets were disturbed last week by more evidence that the economy is weak, in spite of the fact that a steady stream of lousy economic news this year has done little to prevent stocks from reaching new highs. With first quarter GDP increasingly likely to come in at well below 1% – a number that certainly can't be blamed on the weather alone – investors are now starting to sweat.

Why We Need Deflation and Higher Interest Rates / Economics / Deflation

By: MISES

John P. Cochran writes: The Fed is seemingly slightly out of step with other central bankers as it recently hinted at possible future rate hikes in the official announcement following its March 20, 2015 meeting. But as many commentators have recognized, Janet Yellen, a strong proponent of Keynesian more-inflation-as-cure-for-unemployment policy, later downplayed the significance of the announcement. She was careful to indicate that rates would stay low for the near future and when (and if) rate increases begin, they will be measured. The Fed, like central bankers elsewhere, stays committed to a 2 percent inflation target as it continues a policy driven by a fear of deflation, a fear that is not supported by either good economic theory or economic history properly interpreted.

Alan Greenspan (private citizen): "Yes. Remember what we're looking at. Gold is a currency. It is still, by all evidence, a premier currency. No fiat currency, including the dollar, can match it."

Stock Market Inflection Point / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Tony_Caldaro

The market started the week at SPX 2108. After an opening rally on Monday, the market hit SPX 2115 before 10am. Then after the first half hour of trading the market was essentially down for the rest of the week. For the week the SPX/DOW lost 2.25%, the NDX/NAZ lost 2.75%, and the DJ World index lost 1.8%. On the economic front reports came in nearly all to the upside, for the first time in weeks/months. On the uptick: existing/new home sales, the CPI, FHFA housing prices, consumer sentiment, the WLEI and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: durable goods orders. Q4 GDP came in unchanged at +2.2%, and registered 2.4% growth for 2014, compared to growth of 2.2% in 2013 and 2.3% in 2012. Next week’s busy economic calendar will be highlighted by Personal income/spending, the PCE and non-farm Payrolls.

Gold And Silver - What Moved Price? Bab el-Mandeb And Uranus Square Pluto. What?! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

So many "experts" have so much to say in correlating the current prices for gold and silver with factors like how much gold China and Russia have been accumulating, the shortages of and demand for physical PMs, hypothecating, rehypothocating [aka stealing] of gold by Western Central Banks, the record sales for gold and silver coins, world-wide, etc, etc, etc.

Yet, with all of the pinpoint accuracy in reporting, backed by statistics, graphs, charts with arrows drawn in to show the next direction [always wrong] for PMs, there has been little demonstrable cause and effect relations between events and prices. We have two.

Stock Market Investment Parachutes; Do You Have Yours? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Doug_Wakefield

"After twenty minutes, a bell rings and a commander jumps to the end of the line of us and takes the yellow cord from the packs on our back and hooks it up to a cable running the length of the plane. He quickly checks our helmet and reserve chute, then moves on to the next one in line. A few more minutes later and the side rear doors of the plane open, kicking up dust and leaves that were tracked into the plane. The breeze cools us temporarily, but then another commander looks down the line and raises his arms for the first ten guys to stand up....
