UK HYPERINFLATION - First Rampant Money Printing Now Inflating GCSE and A Level Grades by 25% / Politics / Education

By: N_Walayat

The UK government has been busy printing money (debt) that the Bank of England has been dutifully monetizing (QE) so as to keep interest rates artificially low, near zero, the consequence of which is inflating consumer and asset prices, REAL inflation not the bogus inflation as measured by the highly manipulated CPI inflation index. You'll see money printing inflation consequences manifest themselves in house prices, stock prices and of course your weekly supermarket shops.

However, the Government is not done there with it's printing binge as this years GCSE results illustrate. There was a time when statisticians would warn of grade inflation as each year it became easier than the year before to get those pass rates and top grades usually by a couple of percent. However, THIS year we have not had grade inflation instead we have had Grade HYPERINFLATION! A 25% jump in the 7-9 grades given as the government buckled to those who never even sat the exams and let the teachers print the grades for their students as my following video illustrates has dire consequences for all those who hold 2020 certificates that are not as valuable as the grades suggest them to be just as the money in your pocket is not as valuable after the government printed £500 billion to pay for covid-19 handouts.

Gold Price - See What This Fibonacci Ratio Says About Trend / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: EWI

A Fibonacci .618 retracement is a common reversal point in the markets

Fibonacci numbers follow a sequence that begins with 0 and 1, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so on).

After the first several numbers in the sequence, the ratio of any number to the next higher is approximately .618 to 1; its ratio to the next lower number is approximately 1.618 to 1.

Beyond the Surreal: Navigating the Precious Metals Minefield / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: The_Gold_Report

The story of how an inner city liquor store grew its business serves as an example of what sector expert Michael Ballanger calls " a compelling revelation of 'academics versus practicality.'"

In watching the travesty of disinformation, misinformation and moral hazard formation ongoing in the global financial markets, I am immediately reminded of a case study from my university days of which I was a part, the nature of which required that our team analyze a local business and make specific recommendations designed to improve it. Seeing as our campus was located in the Saint Louis inner city, surrounded on three sides by a ghetto second only to Detroit's in crime and murder, and on the fourth by Interstate 70, it was to no one's surprise that the "local business" we were to dissect was a package liquor outlet run by a large and very angry African American gentleman by the name of Marcus Thicke.

Buffett’s Indicator tells him to buy GOLD / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Richard_Mills

Warren Buffett did what he said he’d never do, and that is buy gold - not the physical metal, nor an ETF, but a gold mining stock. Buffett and/or his holding company's managers chose ABX, as it is known in Toronto, or GOLD, on the New York exchange. The surprising trade is highly symbolic given Buffett’s previous fervently anti-gold public statements.

Last Friday the Oracle of Omaha’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRKB) picked up about 20 million shares of Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX), presumably on the strength of the second largest gold company’s growth potential, and the fact it pays a $0.08/share dividend.

“If you own one ounce of gold for an eternity, you will still own one ounce at its end,” the Oracle famously wrote in a 2011 annual shareholder letter, joking about a big pile of gold that “you can fondle the cube, but it will not respond.”

US Dollar Setting Up for Potential Upside Election Trend / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Chris_Vermeulen

  • Presidential election cycles drive US Dollar trends.
  • US Dollar expected to rise before the election and then stall right before the day of the election.
  • Money will start shifting away from the stock market now, and traders will likely target safe-haven investments and undervalued traditional investments (dividends, blue chips, utilities, energy, bonds, consumer service and supplies, and possibly technology suppliers) going forward.
  • The potential for a US Dollar upside price rally after the elections (just like the 2013~2014 setup) is a very valid expectation from a technical analysis perspective.

The Gold and Silver Dam Breaketh / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Ask precious metals' holders and chart technicians what in the last 6-8 weeks stands out in their mind and they will point to the breakout of gold and silver above areas which had contained them for almost a decade.

Gold rocketed without pause to $2,070. Silver, though still well below record nominal dollar highs, sliced through $26, which was supposed to be a lid on prices until next year.

A litany of "price pullers" we've long discussed in our essays – government deficit spending, lagging metals' production vs. exploding demand, and an almost complete absence of big discoveries have all played a part.

Small Business Owners Are Wasting Billions of Dollars in Interest -- Fintech Can Help / Companies / Debt & Loans

By: Submissions

Andrew Latham  writes: It is a challenge for small businesses and entrepreneurs to find lenders willing to provide credit to startups and new companies. Most lenders won’t even consider an application from a business without assets or an established credit history. That is why 10% of small businesses rely on personal loans, according to the latest Federal Reserve’s Latest Small Business Credit Survey. The percentage is much higher for startups.

Using a personal loan to finance your business ideas can be an excellent option. However, many entrepreneurs are overpaying on interest because they think all lenders offer similar rates to borrowers with the same credit score and income. This can be an expensive mistake. Whether you are shopping for a mortgage, an auto loan, or a personal loan, it pays to shop around. Here’s a quick primer on the price dispersion of personal loans and how it is hurting consumers and small business owners.

Economic Data Suggests Reopening, not Recovery. Will Gold Re-Rally Now? / Economics / Coronavirus Depression

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Retail sales growth has slowed down. What does it mean for the U.S. economy and the gold market?

Retail sales increased 1.2 percent in July. The growth was worse than expected, which hit the U.S. stock market. As the chart below shows, the number was also much weaker than in the two previous months (8.4 percent gain in June and 18.3 percent jump in May), when it seemed that the economy started to rebound.

A Huge Opportunity For Emerging Market Stock Investors In 2021 / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Avi_Gilburt

Back in early February of 2020, I warned those willing to listen that “Emerging Markets Look Sick,” which was actually the title of my article.

In fact, when I posted this article in early February, I was looking for a bounce off the 42 support region in EEM, with a target back up in the 44/45 region, which was expected to be a short-able bounce. You can see this outlined in the chart I presented within that article.

As you can see, the EEM struck a low just below 42, and bounced back up to a high of 44.84. This set up the big decline of which I was warning, with an ideal target of the 1.00 extension on the chart in the 31 region.

The Case for a Platinum-Plated Metals Portfolio / Commodities / Platinum

By: MoneyMetals

Do precious metals still represent good value?

With gold just coming off a new all-time high above $2,000/oz and silver having more than doubled off its March bottom, some investors may be wary of entering these markets right now.

However, when adjusted for inflation, when measured against the stock market, or when compared to total money supply, a strong case can be made that gold is not yet overvalued – and that silver remains undervalued.

Investors who are seeking an even more deeply undervalued opportunity within the metals space should take a look at platinum.

Article Highlights:

  • The US Dollar Presidential Price Cycle indicates rising US Dollar
  • The US Dollar is not the best asset, but rather the best of all currencies
  • Price Relationships Suggest The US Dollar Is Currently Undervalued
  • How The Presidential Price Cycle May Create Opportunities in Precious Metals and the US Stock Market

It’s been a while since we published an article about the US Dollar and this is the perfect time to discuss that is likely to happen over the next 6 to 18+ months.  The US Presidential Election is just around the corner and traders/investors are certain to interpret the uncertainty of the US Presidential Election cycle, and the pending policy and liability related changes, as a warning that equities and the US Dollar may be in for a wild ride over the next 6+ months.

The Tragedy of More Missed COVID-19 Opportunities  / Politics / Coronavirus Depression

By: Dan_Steinbock

According to a new report, US states are the most virus-affected relative to major economies. As COVID-19 has proceeded in two phases, containment failures in the West continue to fuel the pandemic and economic damage.

In April, my first COVID-19 report focused on the progression of the pandemic from China to Western Europe and the United States, and the belated mobilization and containment failure in Washington and Brussels.

My new report The Tragedy of More Missed Opportunities , which is also released by Shanghai Institutes for International Studies [with Chinese introduction], focuses on the new missedCOVID-19 opportunities and the consequent human costs and economic damage in the largest world economies, particularly in emerging and developing countries.

Silver Price Rockets to Multi-Year Highs, Targets $169 / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Jason_Hamlin

After nearly 7 years of consolidation and mostly sideways trading, the silver price is finally experiencing a powerful breakout. It did not take long after breaking above the psychologically-important $20 level for silver to climb another nearly 50% toward $30 per ounce.

The silver price has since corrected by 11% to the current price of $26.40, but remains up more than 45% in three weeks. Remarkably, silver is now up more than 125% from the March lows and we see significantly more upside ahead.

If Biden Wins, Solar Stocks Could Go Ballistic / Companies / Solar Energy

By: John_Mauldin

By Justin Spittler : “We're not just going to tinker around the edges. We're going to make historic investments that will seize this moment in history.”

Presidential front-runner Joe Biden said this last month. He was talking about his blockbuster green energy spending plan. As you may have heard, Biden plans to spend $2 trillion on clean energy and infrastructure over four years if he becomes president.

That’s a staggering amount of money. The Trump administration currently allocates less than $100 billion per year to clean energy technology. So, we’re talking about a 20-fold surge in spending!

Biden also plans to end carbon emissions from power plants by 2035. It’s an ambitious goal. One that would require millions of solar panels, and tens of thousands of wind turbines.

Five Post-Covid Trends and Gold Price / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The disruptions caused by the pandemic of Covid-19 forced people, companies, governments, and organizations to challenge their basis assumptions about their ways of life and conduct. Some of them might be trivial such as more frequent and thorough hand-washing, but others are much more important, amongst them putting more emphasis on health that came suddenly under threat and social relationships that were so missing during the quarantine. So, the key question is when the epidemic is fully contained, what will be the “new normal” – and how it will affect the gold market?
