Stock Market: Why You Should Prepare for a Jump in Volatility / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: EWI

This volatility indicator "has made a series of higher lows" -- and it's not a good sign

Stock market volatility is like a roller-coaster ride -- extreme ups and downs.

However, unlike thrill-seeking roller-coaster riders who often rise from their seats after the ride with a smile, investors often exit with a frown.

That's because extreme volatility after a stock rally often ends with prices much lower.

Having said that, many investors -- even professionals -- do not anticipate a jump in volatility right now.

What’s next for Bitcoin Price – $56k or $16k? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Bitcoin traders and enthusiasts are riding the wave after the incredible rally from $9,000 to $42,000 throughout Q4:2020.  It certainly was an incredible run – more than quadrupling in value in less than three months. Now we find ourselves in an early 2021 corrective phase which will end in either another Breakout/Rally attempt or an Excess Phase (Blow-off) Top.  This article highlights both potential outcomes because at this stage it is difficult to determine a single high-probability outcome.

Before I continue, I urge readers to review our How To Spot The End Of An Excess Phase article from November 27, 2020. You can re-read it at www.thetechnicaltraders.com/how-to-spot-the-end-of-an-excess-phase-part-ii/. This is an excellent primer for the content of this current research article.

How Does Credit Repair Work? / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Sumeet_Manhas

Anyone who has had bad credit in the past will know how difficult it is to apply for a credit card, get a loan, or purchase a home. However, there are several things we can do to improve our credit rating. One of the most talked about ways of improving your credit rating is to hire a credit repair company. These companies claim that they can improve your credit rating in return for a fee. But is this even possible? Keep reading below to find out all you need to know about how credit repair works and whether a credit repair company can help you:

Silver Price 2021 Roadmap / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth, the editor of Silver Stock Investor, looks at silver's bull markets since the 1970s and discusses what he thinks lies ahead. There's no consensus on whether silver is in its second or third secular bull market since the 1970s. That's because people define bull markets in different ways.

But as I'll show you, it's not that important.

What we do know is that silver enjoyed a huge bull market from about 1971 until 1980, and then another major bull run from about 2001 until 2011.

Most secular bull markets run through a period, usually about half-ways on the time scale, where the commodity's price falls by about 50%, sometimes more. This is an observation by the legendary commodities investor Jim Rogers.

Why Biden Wants to Win the Fight for $15 Federal Minimum Wage / Politics / Wages

By: Patrick_Watson

President Joe Biden's pandemic relief plan proposes direct cash payments, enhanced unemployment benefits, vaccine funding, and help for state and local governments.

But Biden’s wish list has one unexpected item: a $15 federal minimum wage.

Labor advocates have been asking for this for years, and it’s no surprise a Democratic administration would try now. After all, the coronavirus has spread partly because so many low-wage workers have had to keep working in high-contact environments.

Raising the minimum wage won’t immediately fix that problem, so Congress might reject that part.

US Dollar Decline creates New Sector Opportunities to Trade / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The weakness in the US Dollar, which initiated after the Covid-19 peak in March 2020, has entered an extended downward price trend which is nearing a key support level near 88.33.  One key factor related to this trend is a weakness in the US Dollar, which means other foreign currencies become comparatively stronger.  This transitional currency valuation phase creates an environment where localized foreign investments may become much more opportunistic than the US stock market/sectors if this US Dollar decline continues.  Simply put, foreign investors will suddenly start to realize they are losing alpha in US Dollar based investments compared to stronger, foreign currency-based investments over time and move their capital to profit from the US Dollar’s decline.

NHS Recommends Oximeter Oxygen Sensor Monitors for Everyone 10 Months Late! / Politics / Coronavirus 2021

By: N_Walayat

To illustrate how incompetent Britain's government healthcare system, the NHS response to the chinese coronavirus pandemic has been is the fact that only now in late January 2021 is the NHS recommending that people who suspect they have coronavirus monitor their oxygen levels at home before becoming more seriously ill and calling an ambulance to take them to hospital. This is shocking, as something which was obvious from the outset that an respiratory illness demands that one monitors their oxygen levels which is why I and I presume many others bought such devices for less than £30 from Amazon some 10 months ago in March 2020. Rather than wait for medical establishment to give their go ahead some 10 months late in the final stages of the pandemic as this video illustrates.

DoorDash Has All the Makings of the “Next Amazon” / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Stephen_McBride

Can Amazon Make It? That was the headline plastered on the front page of BusinessWeek magazine in July 2000.

Amazon’s future looked bleak after the tech bubble burst earlier that year. The online shopping pioneer was hemorrhaging cash, forcing it to cut 15% of its workforce. Top fund managers cut Amazon from their portfolios.  And over the following year, its stock price sank from $105 to $5.

How to Survive a Silver-Gold Sucker Punch / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: MoneyMetals

Anyone who owns precious metals, mining shares or metals' ETFs knows the drill.

First, gold and silver begin to establish an uptrend on the charts. Analysts (like us) start writing about how prices are getting ready to make an upside run.

Then "out of nowhere" thousands of highly margined futures contracts hit the market on the short side, "re-painting" the charts, sending terror into the hearts of stackers and those who believe in "honest money."

The reality is that honest money is being manipulated for personal gain by dishonest traders, enabled by "regulators" who, to put it charitably, look the other way.

Harry Truman famously asked for a one-handed economist so he could stop hearing, “On the one hand, but then on the other hand.”

But what if we had three hands?

Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's 1974 book, "The Mote in God’s Eye," features an alien species with three arms. It has two “normal” hands and a stronger, but less dexterous one called the “gripping hand.”

The price of gold has declined further amid incoming U.S. President Joe Biden’s fiscal stimulus and poor economic data, which is a bearish sign.

The weakness in the gold market continued last week. As the chart below shows, the London P.M. Fix declined below $1,840 last Friday (the price of the yellow metal later declined even further, i.e., below $1,830).

Protecting the Vulnerable 2021 / Personal_Finance / Gambling

By: Submissions

The shift in players moving online gaming during 2020 saw sites like www.swankybingo.com quickly growing in popularity as increased traffic of both new and existing players visited to enjoy a few games whilst catching up with family and friends. In fact, online bingo has taken over in popularity from its land-based counterpart in a big way with people of all ages now enjoying their games as well as making new contacts online.

We are all well aware that choice is a great thing for consumers but the migration online by many people highlighted issues with the existing legislation with the 2005 Gambling Act being described as ‘weak’ and ‘sluggish’ especially when covering the problem of problem gambling.

Not only was the 2005 Gambling Act shown to be insufficient, as businesses actually struggled to remain compliant. This fact was proven with the online gambling firms of Caesars Entertainment UK and Betway paying in excess of £10 million for breaching problem gambling and ALM laws.

UK Schools Lockdown 2021 Covid Education Crisis - Home Learning Routine / Politics / Coronavirus 2021

By: N_Walayat

Here's what it's like for infants, junior and secondary school pupils trying to learn at home during lockdown 2.0. The incompetent and negligent mismanagement of the Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in chaos and disorder at every corner of the failure of the education system to respond to the pandemic. First we have the 6 month lockdown from March to September 2020, as the schools FAILED to reopen in June, despite there being little or not risk of infection from the virus during the summer months. That at the start of 2021 was followed by the catastrophic third wave as the UK government once more lost control of the virus resulting in the panic shutdown of all schools, which whilst necessary to bring the pandemic under control nevertheless is once more doing huge damage the life prospects of Britain's school children as this vide of what the children of Sheffield's schools are experiencing (Dobcroft example), as lockdown 2.0 could continue until after EASTER 2021!

Bitcoin Price Crash: FCA Warning Was a Slap in the Face. But Not the Cause / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: EWI


See what 'allowed' for a turn down in the immediate future

In case you blinked over the last two days, bitcoin bulls had their hat abruptly handed to them when the cryptocurrency plummeted a jarring 26% in 48 hours.

The grisly details (or, here's how this bearish opportunity unfolded, for the few traders who were ready):

  • The selloff was the market's worst two-day decline since the start of the coronavirus in March 2020.
  • The crash took prices $10,000 down from their all-time high near $42,000 set on Friday, January 8.
  • And, all told, the move erased nearly $185 billion from bitcoin's value (Jan. 11 Bloomberg); for reference, that's the entire net worth of the richest man on Earth, Elon Musk.

US Coronavirus Pandemic 2021 - We’re Going to Need More Than a Vaccine / Politics / Coronavirus 2021

By: Patrick_Watson

Houston, we have a problem,” said the Apollo 13 crew.

Half a century later, Houston is a problem as some of its largest hospitals reach 100% ICU occupancy. Ditto for many other cities around the US.

This is a problem and it’s getting worse.

Meanwhile, the same pandemic that is filling hospitals is also killing jobs. The latest employment report showed the US lost 140,000 jobs in December. We are still down almost 10 million jobs since last winter.
