The Interest Rates Are What Matter In This Market / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: WMA

The “Trump rally” in U.S. stocks has gone ballistic. Even the most bullish of the bulls did not expect this. A couple weeks ago, bank strategists were forecasting a 2018 year-end target on the S&P 500 at 2850. After the first two weeks of the New Year the index is already closing in on this timid 2018 target price.

Many are saying that the equity rally is due to the tax cuts. We disagree. The tax cuts added fuel to the fire, but if markets are still efficient, the tax cut news should have been priced in last year. Deregulation may continue benefiting the financial sector in particular, but again the broad equity market should not continue to rally on known news. The only reason equity markets have jumped again in the past weeks is momentumnothing has changed in 2018 (other than perhaps sentiment as people become believers in the unending equity rally). What does matter is the rates environment (plural) – (1) interest rates and (2) the inflation rate. We’ll be looking in this Commentary at where these rates may be headed and levels at which a change in these rates may matter for risk assets.

Crude Oil Sweat, Blood and Tears / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): No positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

On Tuesday, crude oil hit a fresh 2018 high of $64.89, but then reversed and declined very quickly, erasing most of Friday increase. What encouraged oil bears to act and how did this decline affect the short-term picture?

Yesterday, the Energy Information Administration said that U.S. oil output is expected to continue its rise to 6.55 million barrels per day (with production from shale rising by 111,000 bpd) in the coming month, which encouraged oil bears to act. As a reminder, before the Friday market closure, they received one more reason to act – the Baker Hughes report, which showed that the oil rig count jumped by 10 to 752 (to the highest level since the beginning of September 2017). What impact did the above-mentioned circumstances have on the daily chart of crude oil?

UK Toys Craze of 2018 will be all things SLIME! / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Anika_Walayat

2018 will likely see the US slime craze of 2017 sweep through the UK resulting in young children with small packets of slime disrupting schools with their slimy and messy consequences, and likely soon become banned substances. Here's, an early glimpse of what foretells for the slime craze of 2018 as Anika 9 and Eliza 3 literally try to get a messy grip with their first batch of various slimes from the spongy sparkly pink, to the very slippery and smiley white to the in between grey.

Land Rover Discovery Sport - Week 3 HSE Black Test Review / ConsumerWatch / Motoring

By: N_Walayat

Here's my week 3 update of owning and driving an Land Rover Discovery Sport of what to expect if your considering buying one as it does take a few weeks before one is fully aware of the cars plus and minus points, such as the pretty feeble plastic trim that tends to surround Discovery Sports, the knocking sound that many experience again from poor quality trim. So whilst the Discovery Sport looks great and general drives well, in many respects my 11 year old Zafira was better! And what's worse of all is Land Rovers sales pitch of 53.3mpg fuel economy which you will never get anywhere near to in real world driving. So watch my most recent video of buying and owning a Land Rover Discovery Sport, where this HSE Black was bought from Hunters in Chester.

By: Raymond_Matison

About this article

The purpose of this article (and its companion article Part 2) is to assess three questions of great importance as it relates to the relationship between North Korea and the United States of America.  The first is to make an inquiry as to why America and North Korea for decades on end holds each other as steadfast enemies.  The second is to evaluate whether this mutual enmity may lead to physical war in the region or beyond.  Finally, what is the likelihood that any future confrontation between these two countries may destabilize our global financial markets?

If You Want to Invest in the Stock Market, You Need to Master This Skill / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: Chad_Champion

Let’s start with the bad news first…

There’s a finance theory called the efficient market hypothesis. One of the titans of finance, Eugene Fama, developed it back in 1965.

In short, it says that stock market prices fully reflect all current information. In other words, stocks are always trading at their fair value.

If that’s true, it means that there’s no way for investors to find undervalued investment opportunities or know when to sell when stocks are trading at overvalued prices.

Dear Reader,

Less than 12 months ago, it traded as low as $1,200. By early December, it hit a high of $19,891 – and on the CBOE, Bitcoin futures topped $20,000.

Metals are setting up for that “Rip Your Face Off Rally”.  The following charts for Gold and Silver show a very interesting setup that is unfolding as the US markets continue to strengthen – that being that the Metals are showing strength in price and we can only assume this is related to some level of FEAR in the markets or expectations that the “Equities and Bitcoin Bubbles” are nearing an end.

In 2017, Arizona, Louisiana, Virginia, Texas, and North Carolina, and even Minnesota made progress on the sound money front. In 2018, other states could do so as well.

36 states have already removed sales taxes from precious metals transactions, and bills being pushed this year by sound money advocates in Alabama and Tennessee could add to that list.

I actually got my start in investing in a stock-picking competition in middle school. I picked Wang Laboratories…

Because…

WANG

Thirteen-year-old humor. Anyway, Wang was a flop, and I lost money on it. Talk about dating yourself—the old-timers will recall that Wang was actually an AMEX stock, the old curb exchange. I do miss the AMEX.

Only two weeks in and 2018 is already breaking records—mostly in a good way.

But that leaves 50 potentially less enjoyable weeks to go. So rather than focus on promising current events, I think I’d better dip into my annual forecast bag and share a few highlights from my friends with you. (you can find the previous part of the 2018 forecast here)

You undoubtedly know that 2017 was a record-setting year for the broad stock markets. And while gold was up last year despite numerous headwinds, most mainstream investors aren’t paying much attention to gold since they keep seeing so much green in their stock portfolios. 

Even I was taken back by some of the data from the bull market in stocks…

Silver Volume Extreme as in April 2013 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: P_Radomski_CFA

During yesterday’s session silver moved back and forth in a volatile manner on volume that was the highest since April 2013. There were a few volume spikes in the meantime, but none as big as what we saw yesterday. The silver market is being very loud. But are you listening?

It may be hard to notice silver’s signs with all that’s happening in the USD Index and given the rally in gold stocks, but it’s definitely worth it. Let’s investigate (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

By: New_Forex_Trends

Stock Markets have started to show some signs of stalling in the early parts of this year, and this could indicate the potential for weakness given our proximity to the historical averages. The S&P 500 continues to trade near its record highs but the lack of event drivers over the next several weeks suggests that there is a growing possibility that markets could gravitate sideways to lower over this coming period.

Gold Stocks GDXJ Breaking Out / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2018

By: Rambus_Chartology

Today the GDXJ is breaking out above its neckline. Again I was looking for a little more chopping action between the neckline and the neckline symmetry line before the breakout, but so far it’s not happening. I’m going to take my second position and buy 150 shares at the market at 35.34 with the sell/stop at 33.31 for now. A backtest to the neckline would come in around the 35.10 for a slightly lower risk entry point.
