I Wouldn't Touch Bitcoin, Risk of Collapse Too Big / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: EWI


Bitcoin's 50% crash was not entirely unexpected

"Wild" doesn't begin to describe Bitcoin's price action. This spring, it traded as low as $1200. Last week, BTC futures topped $20,000.

Yesterday (December 21), in an article by newsmax.com, Elliott Prechter warned about Bitcoin's future:

5 Charts That Show Historic Value in Gold Stocks / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Back in early 2016 as precious metals rebounded, our work showed that gold stocks were arguably the cheapest they had ever been. They had the worst 5-year and 10-year rolling performance ever, they were trading at potentially 40-year lows on a price to cash flow basis, they were the cheapest ever relative to the stock market and Gold and most notably, the Barron’s Gold Mining Index was trading at the same level as 42 years ago! The gold stocks enjoyed a massive recovery in 2016 but it was short lived as the sector corrected and then consolidated (far from the highs) for over a year. Although we have a tendency to be too conservative at times, over a month ago we noted a historical pattern that bodes extremely well for gold stocks over the next few years. That outlook is reinforced by the continued historic value in the gold stocks as exhibited by the following charts.

Internet, the Weapon of Mass Disruption / Politics / Internet

By: Richard_Mills

The ever-increasing digitalization of our world has meant advances in technology that would have been unimaginable 30 years ago when the Internet first entered the popular lexicon. Created by the U.S. Government in the 1960s to build robust communications via computer networks, “Internet” as it was then called had no means of electronic mail, telephony or file sharing, which are the building blocks of today's world-wide web.

More recent inventions like e-commerce, cloud computing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have transformed the way we do business and conduct our personal lives. We take for granted the ability to shop and bank online, have a constant cell phone connection either through broadband or wifi, stream music and videos, or talk to each other across thousands of miles through Skype and FaceTime.

Gold Stocks Coiled Spring Ready for Massive Breakout Upleg 2018 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: Zeal_LLC

The gold miners’ stocks largely ground sideways in 2017, lagging gold’s solid rally.  Being trapped in this vexing consolidation has decimated sentiment, leaving a bearish wasteland bereft of hope.  But contrary to perceptions, this deeply-out-of-favor sector is actually a coiled spring today.  Gold stocks are ready to surge dramatically higher as psychology inevitably shifts, pointing to much higher prices coming in 2018.

The main appeal of gold-mining stocks is their underlying profits’ leverage to gold.  The gold miners are much riskier than gold itself, facing many operational, geological, and geopolitical challenges that the metal doesn’t share.  Thus investors and speculators alike must be compensated for these large added risks with superior returns to gold.  That didn’t happen in 2017, which is why gold stocks are so widely despised.

Fed Unwinds, Gold Market Yawns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

In October, the Federal Reserve started the unwinding of its massive balance sheet. According to the addendum to the Policy Normalization Principles and Plans revealed in June 2017, Fed officials wanted to reduce the size of its security portfolio by $10 billion in October ($6 billion in Treasuries and $4 billion in the mortgage-backed assets). Let’s analyze whether this is really what happened, how the so-called quantitative tightening has influenced the financial markets so far, and what the Fed’s normalization would mean for the gold market.

Will Tax Bill Sink Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

This week, the U.S. Congress approved the tax bill. What does it mean for the gold market?

So it finally happened. After months of struggle, the U.S. lawmakers passed a tax reform on Wednesday. Now, Trump has to sign it into law. What’s in the final version? The bill maintains current seven tax brackets for individuals, but temporarily lowers most income levels and rates for each one. It also increases the standard deduction.

Bitcoin: Gold Rush in the Wild Wild Math Game / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: EconMatters

Bitcoin has become a buzz word in the investing community, not as an alternate currency unit replacing the fiat money, but as an asset class with a spectacular 1,600%+ return this year, valuation almost doubled just in the December month alone. Bitcoin was heading towards $20,000 before pulling back to $15,000 level on 12/21/2017. The entire cryptocurrency market capitalization rose above $600 billion for the first time on Dec. 18, 2017.

The first is an article by ZeroHedge, which begins, “For months, the so-called "Smart Money" has been on-board with the incessant rally in US equity markets, buying every dip - no matter how shallow.

However, since the end of November, a very different regime appeared to take hold.”

Short-term CRB Rally Driven Mainly by Oil / Commodities / CRB Index

By: Donald_W_Dony

The recent rebound strength in the Commodity Research Bureau Index (CRB) has been underpinned by only a select few natural resources.

The CRB having completed a basing pattern in Q2/Q3 has rallied largely on the back of a single commodity - Light crude oil.

Copper prices have also contributed to the rebound, but the heavy lifting has gone to WTIC.

As near-term futures contracts point to $61 for oil and $3.25 for copper, the rebound maybe short-lived.

A global stock-market surge powered by corporate earnings and economic growth sent major indexes to repeated records this year, defying predictions that the rally would peter out.

China is flush with money, and as it continues to pour massive amounts of aid and investment into the region, it’s only a matter of time before Beijing tries to cash in.

By: Harry_Boxer

Here are four stocks showing strong technical momentum.

BlackBerry Limited (BB) shot up out of a double-top pattern on Wednesday, closing up nearly 12% at $12.17 on 29 million shares traded. That was the largest volume since the end of September, and more than 7x the stock's daily average. The move came with the company's positive earnings announcement and news on the transformation of its core business from communications hardware to cybersecurity solutions. Price has not been this high since January 2015. Next targets: $14 and $17.

Is Apple Old iPhone's Stealth Slow Down IOS Update a SCAM? / Companies / Apple

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Technology expert John Poole has forced Apple to come clean on the real secret behind Apples marketing and sales success, of why customers are so eager to upgrade to the latest iPhone model, and the answer may surprise you!

Apparently what Apple has been doing for at least a year and probably for more than 5 years is to SLOW DOWN the operation of Older iPhone's via IOS software updates. Which has the effect of encouraging older phone owners to UPGRADE to the latest model. This way the consumers have no real world first hand experience to compare the speed and performance between an Old iphone and a New i-phone!

Stock Market Topping Pattern Or Just Consolidation - Will Stocks Continue Higher? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly:
Intraday trade: Our Wednesday's intraday trading outlook was neutral. It proved accurate, because the S&P 500 lost 0.1% following slightly higher opening of the trading session (+0.2%). The market fluctuates after its Friday-Monday rally. We still can see technical overbought conditions. However, there have been no confirmed negative signals so far. Therefore, we prefer to be out of the market again, avoiding low risk/reward ratio trades.

Our intraday outlook is neutral today. Our short-term outlook is neutral, and our medium-term outlook is neutral:

Intraday outlook (next 24 hours): neutral
Short-term outlook (next 1-2 weeks): neutral
Medium-term outlook (next 1-3 months): neutral

Some Commodity Charts are Breaking Out / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Rambus_Chartology

Today I would like to update some charts for the commodities complex as we are starting to see some action in this sector. Back in the summer months when we first started to get long some of the different commodities sectors, we got many breakouts from some very nice H&S bases. After the initial move up came the first consolidation phase that has been going on for nearly four months or so. We are now starting to see some of these consolidation patterns breaking out which should lead to the next impulse move higher in most cases.

Lets start with BHP, one of the biggest miners on the planet, that shows a good example of where we are at in the bull market. Today the price action broke out with a gap above the top rail of an almost 5 month triangle consolidation pattern. A backtest to the top rail would come in around the 43.50 area.
