Indonesian Rupiah Is In Trouble, Again / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

The rupiah is plumbing the depth it last visited in 1998 during the Asian financial crisis. The accompanying chart of the rupiah’s value against the U.S. dollar tells the tale. Although the rupiah’s recent plunge is not as dramatic as the post-July 1997 float of the rupiah, it is ugly nevertheless.

GBP Basing For New Rally? / Currencies / British Pound

By: Richard_Cox

This year, we have seen a large amount of weakness and selling pressure that has been directed as the British Pound (GBP).  There have been a few different explanations for why this has been the case, as the policy trajectory is still largely unclear with respect to the stated policy stance exhibited by the Bank of England.

Stock Market Trading Bands are Being Squeezed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I like to observe the indices from all degrees of trend, from hourly to monthly and even yearly. The charts can tell you a lot. I am using the hourly charts less these days, because the moves in the market often require a larger perspective. However, the hourly charts caught my eye and, thanks to Roy, a subscriber, his nudge prompted me to view all the pertinent charts.

By: The_Energy_Report

Don't buy things that are trending on Twitter or the front page of USA Today, warns Gold Stock Trades publisher Jeb Handwerger. Buy them when they are unloved and on the back page. In this interview with The Energy Report, he singles out the unloved companies that could become media darlings in the coming boom in energy metals, uranium and—eventually—oil sectors. And he stresses the importance of the single most important commodity in the investing space ever—time.

Gold Price No Bottom Yet / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Ed_Carlson

I'll begin this week's commentary with a follow up on last week's Hybrid Lindsay forecast for a high in equities. Last week's commentary gave the details of the forecast for a high in the Dow on September 11 or very early last week. Equities pushed that forecast to the limit with last week's closing high on Wednesday followed by a decline of over 350 points. Short bounces notwithstanding, it seems reasonable to assume Wednesday was the high I was looking for.

Gold Prices Are Set To Jump or Maybe Not / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Sol_Palha

Hasten slowly and ye shall soon arrive. ~ Milarepa

We were very bullish on gold starting from 2002 and our bullishness continued until the beginning of 2011. In 2011, we started to voice concern as the Gold camp was chanting "Kumbaya my love", and almost every Tom, Dick and Harry in the Gold market were all busy issuing higher targets. Towards the middle of 2011, there were many signs that all was not well. Key technical indicators were issuing negative divergence signals, the dollar was generating strong signals that a bottom was close at hand, and as we already stated the Gold camp was simply too ecstatic for our liking. We advised our clients to close the bulk of their bullion positions and to embrace the dollar as it was getting ready to break out; the rest as they say is history.

Designing the Common Stock Portion of Your Retirement Portfolio: Concentrated or Diversified / Companies / Pensions & Retirement

By: Charles_Carnevale

Designing the common stock portion of your retirement portfolio is very challenging. For starters, there is no absolutely perfect or even best way to design a stock portfolio. However, there are many effective strategies that have produced successful long-term results. The key to success is to find and implement the strategy that best fits your own unique goals, objectives, needs, and most importantly - risk tolerances.

There are many aspects associated with designing a common stock portfolio that need to be considered. The number of individual companies to include in your portfolio is a big one. In addition to the number of companies, how much weight you should put in each one. Should they be equally weighted? In other words, should you put the exact same percentage of your portfolio in each company? Or, does it make more sense to overweight some and underweight others? Moreover, should you own stocks from every sector or just the ones you like the best?

Gold: The End and The Beginning / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

Gold prices peaked in January 1996 and then fell for 3.5 years into a multi-decade low.  It was the age of stocks, debt, leverage, and good times; nobody needed or wanted gold.

Since the gold price peak in 2011 the Federal Reserve has “generously” supplied the world with trillions of dollars of newly created digital and paper debt, all backed by nothing but faith and credit.  Bonds have rallied and the S&P is higher by 50% or so.  The Japanese Central Bank has similarly produced trillions of yen, bought stocks and bonds, and extended their recession several more years.

After keeping the markets on edge in the days and weeks leading up to today’s decision, the Fed has decided once again to leave interest rates unchanged.

As we’ve spent this week discussing “all things Fed,” it’s worth spilling a little ink on what the quasi-government-but-really-private organization is supposed to do.

The SPX Premarket is down over 30 points as I write. There is another hour left before the cash market opens, so the probability of a “limit down” at the open or during the trading session is rising. If such a circuit breaker is reached, the market is halted for 15 minutes. The triggers are set at 7%, 13% and 20%.

Steps from a Deep October Stock Market Selloff / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Bob_Loukas

For some reason there was a late flurry of expectations that the FED was going to raise rates this past week. Many in the media would like us to believe that we've finally transitioned out of an economic intensive care and that the economy is ready to stand on its own two feet. Evidence to support the idea is the employment picture, which when taken on the surface provides the illusions that we're in a healthy and thriving economy.

The Massive Debt Bubble Will Push Silver Prices Much Higher / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Hubert_Moolman

Silver had a spectacular rise in price from about August 2010 to April 2011. In fact, it was so impressive that some thought the peak was the end of the bull market for silver. After all, silver had risen about 12.33 times from its bottom in 2001.

However, from the fact that the April 2011 did not surpass the all-time high of 1980, it should have been evident that this was no end of a bull market. Real bull markets form peaks much higher than any previous highs.

As a technical trader, it's intriguing to me that all the headline-generating volatility – and U.S. Federal Reserve inaction – we've seen lately really hasn't made the market nosedive or skyrocket for any significant length of time.

And so investors, who need to know what's coming next, are looking in some strange places to find the answer.

Defending National Sovereignty from the NWO / Politics / New World Order

By: BATR

In a world that is virtually unrecognizable from the universal principles that underpinned Western Civilization, the fundamental concept of national sovereignty is being attacked as a relic of a former age. The New World Order is designed to eliminate the self-government of sovereign nations. While individuals live under the domain of established states, the fact that specific regimes operate within and often under the auspices of international hegemony that routinely violates the independence of specific countries is undeniable. The “world community” is not a voluntary association of collaborating governments; it is a euphemism of a top down despotic authoritarian system for global control and punishment for uncooperative governments.

Merkel’s Next Big Headache: Volkswagen’s ‘Defeat Device’ / Companies / Germany

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Angela Merkel has another huge headache on her plate. She seems to attract those these days. And given how she’s been dealing with the last few migraines coming her way, perhaps she deserves them.

For now, it’s a story of one carmaker, Volkswagen. And in one country, the USA. A country in which the diesel engine is somewhat of an orphan, making up just a few percent of the total car market. But the “defeat device” scandal will not stop there.
