Stocks and Inverted Yield Curve / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Yield curve now inverted for 21 months so where's the recession? An inverted yield curve is supposed to predict an recession, however as I pointed out months ago for why I was accumulating long-bonds is that the US Treasury NEEDS LOWER long-term interest rates for it's flood of debt issuance during 2024, it does not want to pay 5% interest on this debt that continues to inflate the debt interest spiral. So the Fed will engineer LOWER long term yields whilst maintaining higher short-term rates so as to continue to suppress INFLATION! Which is what has come to pass, long rates are now 1% lower whilst the Fed fund rate remains at 5.25%.

US Interest Rates - When WIll the Fed Pivot / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The current Fed Funds rate is 5.25% with he market expectations for the cuts to commence March 2023, though the market has been wrong for the whole of 2023 when Fed rate cuts were always seen as starting some 6 months into the future! In reality it does not matter when the Fed cuts rates because the Fed FOLLOWS the market rates not sets them. And the market rates as evidenced by bond yields has been falling for the past few months.

S&P Stock Market Real Earnings Yield / Stock-Markets / Earnings

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Here's another indicator to pile on top of a mountain of indicators that I have been covering over the years that spiked lower below 0 into 2022 before bouncing. during 2023. Of note is the fact that every spike below zero is accompanied by a recession. So where's the recession? Answer it HAPPENED during 2022! It's just that the econofools had talked themselves out of recognising the fact that a recession had taken place.

U.S. financial market’s “Weimar phase” impact to your fiat and digital assets  / Stock-Markets / HyperInflation

By: Raymond_Matison

U.S. equities market was strong in 2023, and after a decline in 2022, rose by 20% last year as measured by the S&P 500 Index.  In addition, that index rose above 5,000 for the first time ever in the early part of the 2024 year.  Surely, it must be because our economy is strong - as key government officials including our president have assured us.  Or maybe not?!   You can decide for yourself as key issues are evaluated

herein.  We will compare our current equity market performance with a period 100 years ago with its implications for our future financial markets.  We will look at the concept of self-custody for assets from gold to bank money deposits, to a securities stock and bond account and the custody of digital assets.  We examine how America’s proxy war efforts are affecting our budget deficit, and the dire need for additional debt/money issueance promoting product price inflation, and asset inflation.  We examine America’s profligate spending challenging a growing BRICS coalition promoting global de-dollarization, and its effects on our fiat currency’s value, alternative currencies and implications for adoption and value of Web 3 digital assets.

What a Breakdown in Silver Mining Stocks! What an Opportunity! / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks 2024

By: P_Radomski_CFA

GDXJ declined once again yesterday, but the situation in silver juniors is even worse!

Silver Juniors in Trouble

Yes, it is possible for a market to be in an even worse position than gold junior mining stocks – that’s the case with silver juniors.

To be precise, the GDXJ aims to be exposed to about 80% gold juniors and 20% of silver juniors, but the SILJ ETF aims to be exposed to just silver miners, with the focus on junior miners.

Why AI will Soon become SA - Synthetic Intelligence - The Machine Learning Megatrend / Politics / AI

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Is Artificial the right word to use for what is taking place as we enter 2024?

Artificial - made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally, especially as a copy of something natural.

Neural networks are a black box, they are not a copy of something natural i.e. are an emergent property, a different form of intelligence, in the past I've called this Alien Intelligence but that is a bit Sci-fi sounding, maybe a better word that could eventually become widespread should be Synthetic Intelligence since it is a form of intelligence and not artificial i.e. the intelligence is real, but different to human intelligence.

Keep Calm and Carry on Buying Quantum AI Tech Stocks / Stock-Markets / Investing 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

My focus for much of 2023 was to what degree one would get lucky in ones target stocks during the year, as it can be a case of playing with fire to heavily trim ones holdings, especially the primary and secondary AI tech stocks, all because one thinks one can then rebuy on the next dip. In which respect 2023 proved to be a great year because we got lucky TWICE during the year! Firstly March's correction to S&P 3800, can you imagine that the S&P traded down to 3800 in March! And then again following the July high of 4600 all the way down to 4100! Which even I had started to give up on happening given support at 4200.

Why Rising Shipping Costs Won't Cause Inflation / Economics / Global Economy

By: MoneyMetals

Defining inflation as "rising prices" creates all kinds of confusion.

As I explained in-depth, historically, inflation meant an increase in the amount of money and credit in the economy, or more succinctly, an expansion in the money supply. Rising consumer prices - price inflation - is one symptom of this monetary inflation.

INFLATION and the Stock Market Trend / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: Nadeem_Walayat

US CP LIE Inflation has been moderating, largely due to the base effect as surge in inflation a year ago leaves the annual inflation indices thus giving the illusion of inflation being under control hence the focus of econofools. Whilst there is also real world impact of weak European and Chinese economies, that and the effect of base rate rises feeding through should continue to put downward pressure on CPI until at least release of Feb data in March 2024, after which inflation could tick higher to back over 3% for the rest of the year.

GameStop (GME): 88% Shellacking Yet No Lesson Learned / Companies / Investing 2024

By: EWI

"Every major peak gets cinematic treatment"

Back in early 2021, the meme stock craze was going strong.

As you'll recall that craze was all over the news and revolved around favorite stocks promoted by largely novice traders via social media. This January 27, 2021 New York Times news item sums up the frenzy surrounding one of those stocks:

'Dumb Money' Is on GameStop, and It's Beating Wall Street at Its Own Game

GameStop shares have soared 1,700 percent as millions of small investors, egged on by social media, employ a classic Wall Street tactic to put the squeeze -- on Wall Street.

Stocks Bull Market Commands It All For Now / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Avi_Gilburt

After writing publicly for over 13 years, I have come to notice that the landscape has very much changed. There were many through the years that have attempted to take me to task for my differing perspective on the market. Many simply could not understand how I am able to ignore exogenous factors, yet still be able to accurately identify turning points in the market while staying on the correct side of the market the great majority of the time.

When I look around now, many of them are no longer around. Yet, we are still here guiding investors through the turbulence of the various market machinations we have experienced over the last 13 years.

Financial Markets Narrative Nonsense / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2024

By: The_Gold_Report

The term "narrative" is defined as "story that you write or tell to someone, usually in great detail. A narrative can be a work of poetry or prose, or even song, theater, or dance. Often, a narrative is meant to include the "whole story." A summary will give a few key details, and then the narrative will delve into the details."

 This perfectly describes the manner in which financial assets are deified by the MSM and fed on a silver platter to unsuspecting buyers of "all things Wall Street,"  especially the shares of companies that have no earnings and very few assets but a mountain of narrative content that tells a wonderful little "story" about what might happen if all goes right. Visions of net worth sugar plums dance in millions of heads around the planet every time they hear the cheerleaders on CNBC prattle on about the "strong economy" being driven forward by a "resilient consumer" who have oodles and oodles of "cash on the sidelines" with which to drive stock prices endlessly higher.

Gold Price Long-Term Outlook Could Not Look Better / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2024

By: Clive_Maund

I haven't written much about gold in the recent past — since the failed breakout attempt early in December — simply because I haven't known what to make of it, and that indecisiveness has been reflected in the market itself, where we have seen gold stuck in a fairly narrow trading range, but now things are starting to become a lot clearer both fundamentally and technically, and as we will proceed to see, it's not a pretty picture.

On gold's latest 6-month chart, we can see the trading range that has built out since early December, and it is now becoming clear that the pattern that has formed is a Head-and-Shoulders top that also has the characteristics of a Double or Triple Top or a Symmetrical Triangle and right now it is on the point of backing off from the Right Shoulder peak of the pattern.

Stock Market QE4EVER / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2024

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Not to forget the inflation mega-trend courtesy of rampant central bank money printing to monetize government debt coupled with the fake inflation indices where up until recently the Fed had succeeded in hoodwinking the masses that US inflation was just 1%. Instead at that time I warned it was more like 4%! Now it's more like 7%. Anyway the money printing binge now totals $8.8 trillion, up from $4 trillion at the start of 2020 and down from a a peak of $9.62 trillion in the so called Taper. We saw how the taper of 2019 went which at the time I warned would eventually resolve in the Fed Balance sheet DOUBLING. of course I was not expecting it to happen the very NEXT YEAR in 2020!
