Why the Failed Coup in Turkey Will Bring Down the European Union / Politics / European Union

By: David_Galland

Dear Parade-Goer,

As I am still in Argentina running around like a llama chased by a puma, it’s my great pleasure to turn the bulk of this week’s missive to new team member Stephen McBride.

You may remember Stephen from his excellent work on our exposé on the machinations of George Soros.

The Colors of Money: Andrew Jackson Still Fights the Banking War / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

This year marks the 101st anniversary of Andrew Jackson rolling over and over in his grave.

Back in 1915, the brand new Federal Reserve pasted the 7th President's likeness on its first $10 debt note – a sharp slap to the President who fought and won his famously bitter battle to destroy the “corrupting monster” of central banking.

Stock Market Retracement Appears Complete. We're Still on a Sell Signal / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX appears to have completed its retracement a little shy of Short-term resistance at 2162.30. The retracement was 45%, less than the 50% that I had suggested. The time elapsed for the round trip from top-to-top was 17 hours. This may set the tone for the next decline, as well. Investors should be at least 50% short at this time.

Bitcoin Price Flashes Important Signal / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: short speculative positions; stop-loss at $657; initial target at $527.

Does Bitcoin correlate to gold? This is the kind of question Bitcoin enthusiasts pose to themselves. As it turns out, the question might be surprising to a lot of people who claim that the two are very similar. In an article on CoinDesk, we read:

An analysis of historical market data conducted by ARK Invest's Chris Burniske failed to illustrate a strong relationship between the two.

Burniske's analysis revealed that when examined on a weekly basis, the one-year rolling correlation of bitcoin and gold's returns was positive for nearly the entire period between 30th December, 2011, and 20th June, 2014.

US Dollar Analysis And New Trading Opportunity / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Investor optimism in stocks is becoming more widespread. Last week’s NAAIM Exposure Index rose to 101, which is the highest level since December of 2013. The trading sentiment composite has moved to a “Sell Signal” and last week saw an 11 on the VIX.  Excessive optimism is universal.

We are entering an interesting time of the year for investors.  Is this stock market going to break out to the upside and rally to further new highs, or will this latest lull be followed by a painful reversal of fortune?   Historically, the August/September timeframe is the “Danger Zone” for the stock market.

Gold Sector - Is it time to Back up the Truck? – Mortgage the Farm? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2016

By: Peter_Degraaf

Technical Analysis of the gold sector reveals a number of red flags, such as negative COT numbers and a mining sector that is at least temporarily overbought, having more than doubled since January.

And yet…….

Sometimes a market that is overbought can remain that way for longer than anyone anticipated.  Remember the ‘Dotcom’ bull market of the 1990s?  It became overbought and kept on rising for many months.

European Banking System on Verge of Collapse; 'No Confidence' in Italian Bank Rescue / Companies / Credit Crisis 2016

By: Mike_Shedlock

European bank shares are down for the second day following a last minute bailout package aimed at Italian banks one day before a stress test showed Monte dei Paschi would be insolvent in an adverse scenario.

The ECB's stress tests published on Friday showed Monte dei Paschi has a huge capital shortfall, with the bank's Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio of negative 2.44 percent.

Stock Market At Danger Zone / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices started the day off with a nasty drop, and kept dropping all day until midday when they reached my target zone at 4690 Nasdaq 100 and 2148 S&P 500, and then they rallied nicely, the Nasdaq 100 jumping about 35 points and the S&P 500 about 11-12 points. Near the end of the day, they backed off just a little, but ended up near the afternoon rally highs. Still, they closed down sharply on the day.

Net on the day, the Dow was down 90.74 at 18,313.77, about 65 points off the low. The S&P 500 was down 13.81 at 2157.03, 10 points off its low. The Nasdaq 100 was down 36.83 at 4719.21, 30 points off its low.

BrExit House Prices Crash, Flat or Rally? UK Housing Market Affordability Crisis / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In the run up to the EU referendum the establishment REMAIN camp had peddled a perpetual year long story that UK house prices would collapse or crash if BrExit happened, as operation fear each month ramped up the threats of that which awaited a post Brexit Britain.

For instance George Osborne repeatedly issued doom warnings that likely contributed to his swift sacking by Theresa May

“If we leave the European Union there will be an immediate economic shock that will hit financial markets... That affects the value of people’s homes and the Treasury analysis shows that there would be a hit to the value of people’s homes by at least 10 per cent and up to 18 per cent." - George Osborne

Why Trump’s Winning, Why the Establishment Wants Him Eliminated, and Why You Need Gold like Never Before / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016

By: MoneyMetals

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

Coming up we’ll hear from Michael Rivero of WhatReallyHappened.com. Michael gives us his uncensored opinions on the recently concluded political conventions, why he sees this as a crucial election for the future of our Republic, and why he views precious metals as a must-own asset for the tumultuous times ahead. Don’t miss another fantastic interview with Michael Rivero coming up after this week’s update.

Well, much to the dismay of Republicans and a great many Democrats, the Democratic National Committee formally put up Hillary Clinton to be the next President of the United States. Hillary’s coronation was met with boos, heckling, and walk outs by scores of rank and file Democrats. They believe, and with good reason, that their own party rigged the system on behalf of a crooked candidate.

Stock Market August Heat / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Ed_Carlson

August is known for its heat and, for market participants, this August is expected to be extra-hot. Last Thursday marked the 11th straight day that SPX closed inside a 1% trading range, the first time this has ever happened. Regression to the mean tells us that a big surge in volatility is coming. Seasonality tells us that the month should end higher than it begins (which matches our Lindsay view of a Three Peaks and Domed House pattern).

Stock Market Breakdown Analysis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

A “measured” fractal may form a low at 2140.00-2145.00, then develop a bounce. However, the mid-Cycle support at 2122.54 and the 50-day Moving Average at 2112.88 may attract a lower decline toward that range.

Either way, SPX is setting up for its first bounce back to retest either sort-term resistance at 2162.08 or the trendline at 2165.00.

Many pros go short at that first pullback.

Beware: Central Bankers are Driving Us into the Dirt / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2016

By: Harry_Dent

One of the major triggers I’ve been warning about is already happening, even before we understand and/or admit that we are in a recession. Zero Hedge just picked up on an article from Jeff Cox at CNBC.

Global corporate debt now sits at a record $51 trillion and is poised to hit $75 trillion by 2020 – just four years away. If interest rates rise and the economy slows, it will be very hard for companies to roll these bonds over – and then we get what S&P Global Ratings is calling “Crexit.”

What You Need to Know If You’re Exposed to Muni Bonds / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Rodney_Johnson

The housing bust was awful, particularly in Florida and other “sand states.” As the economy slowed, consumers lost their jobs, and when they couldn’t pay their mortgages, they then lost their homes.

Even though that wrenching period happened almost a decade ago, it will live in our memories for years to come. I can recall much of the pain, but also other aspects of the moment. Some people were desperate for the relief that came their way; others were using it as cover to game the system.

I read that I can’t eat gold as I munched on my 401(k) sandwich and guzzled my IRA wine, which tastes like a cheap Chardonnay. For a side dish I ate blanched twenty dollar bills and consumed a chocolate money market for dessert.

Yes, I am kidding.

The point is that simple statements such as “You can’t eat gold” are a useless DISTRACTION.

Gold Futures Point towards a Continuation of the Bullish Spell / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2016

By: Nicholas_Kitonyi

The price of gold appears set to continue on a bullish run with gold futures pointing to a near-term target of about $1,400 while the long-term target could see the prices rise to new multi-year highs in the range of $1,500-$1,600 an ounce.

Last week, FOMC took the more reasonable option of failing to announce another US interest rate hike despite a strong nonfarm payrolls figure of 287,000 new jobs compared to just 11,000 in June. "Job gains were strong in June following weak growth in May," the FOMC said in its post-meeting statement, adding that "On balance, payrolls and other labor market indicators point to some increase in labor utilization in recent months."
