Weaponizing the Dollar; Gold Mining Stocks Chart Path to Breakout / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: MoneyMetals

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s comments on inflation last Wednesday added fuel to the contra-dollar trade.

During a press conference following the Fed’s decision to leave interest rates unchanged, Powell said, “In order to move rates up, I would want to see inflation that's persistent and that's significant. A significant move up in inflation that's also persistent...

"To move inflation expectations up from where they are, which appears to be a bit below 2%, will not happen overnight."

In other words, the Fed won’t be satisfied until consumer prices rise much higher over time.

Current Stock Market Rally Similarities To 1999 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Euphoria is a type of market rally where valuations, real market expectations, and global market concerns are pushed away from view while a trader based rush to rally takes place.  One of the clearest examples is the 1995 to 2000 DOT COM US stock market rally.  As the Internet burst into homes and businesses across the world, the US-led the way with dozens of new Internet-based IPOs touting glorious expectations, potential earnings and more.  Everyone had the idea this new medium would dramatically change the economy for the better and breakthrough traditional economic boundaries.

The rally that took place in 1995 through 2000 was incredible.  The S&P 500 rallied from 463 to 1535 – +235.57%.  What we find interesting is the “price wave formation” that took place within that rally.  There were a number of key price rotations that took place as the market continued to rally, we’ve labeled them A, B, and C.  The first rotation, A, took place in July~Dec 1997.  The second, B, took place from May 1998 to November 1998.  The last, C, took place between January 1999 and November 1999.  Technically, these rotations are significant because they represent “true price exploration” related to price advancement.  The price must always attempt to identify true support/resistance levels while trending.

How Startup Fundraising Works / Companies / SME

By: Sumeet_Manhas

How does startup fundraising and getting funded really work for startups?

Throw together a pitch deck, run around Silicon Valley showing it off to investors, and rest easy on the weekend with a pile of checks and plenty of commas in your bank account, right? Not exactly. There is typically a lot more involved in fundraising than you see on the surface.

ONS UK Unemployment Statistics Paint a FAKE Picture of Falling Unemployment / Economics / Unemployment

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Today the ONS published it's latest labour market statistics which include headline grabbing news that unemployment has continued to fall to an historic low of just 1.28 million as the below graph illustrates, far below the trough before the financial crisis hit Britain. However there is a fly in the ointment of this rosy picture that the Governments economic propaganda arm (ONS is painting which is that official unemployment statistics have been manipulated lower by successive governments all the way to the point that on their own they are pretty much meaningless. For instance there are over 8.6 million people of working age who are ECONOMICALLY INACTIVE, that's another word for UNEMPLOYED!

Economic Tribulation is Coming, and Here is Why / Economics / Great Depression II

By: Michael_Pento

The global fixed income market has reached such a manic state that junk bond yields now trade at a much lower rate than where investment-grade debt once stood. Investment-grade corporate debt yields were close to 6% prior to the Great Recession. However, Twitter just issued $700 million of eight-year bonds at a yield of just 3.875%. That is an insanely low rate even for investment-grade corporate debt. But, the credit rating on these bonds is BB+, which by the way, happens to be in the junk category.

One has to wonder how fragile the fixed income world has become when investors are tripping over each other to lock up money for eight years in a junk-rated company that is offering a yield only 1.5 percentage points above the current rate of inflation. And, in a company involved in the technology space, which is a sector that evolves extremely rapidly with a high extinction rate. Oh, and by the way, Twitter missed on both revenue and earnings in its last quarterly report. Nevertheless, this issue was so oversubscribed that the dollar amount for the offering was boosted by $100 million just days before coming to market.

Why Every Investor Should Own Hazardous Waste Stocks / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Robert_Ross

There’s only one guy in history who’s built three Fortune 500 companies.

His name was Wayne Huizenga.

Wayne founded automotive retailer AutoNation. He was also instrumental in Blockbuster Video’s growth. He wisely sold his stake for $8.4 billion in 1994.

But Wayne’s crown jewel was Waste Management, Inc. (WM).

Waste Management is the largest trash collection, disposal, and recycling company in North America. It runs a very dirty but very profitable business.

Pittsburgh Evolves into a Technology Hub / Companies / SME

By: Sumeet_Manhas

Steel is the first thing that comes to mind when many people think of the city of Pittsburgh. Nicknamed "The Steel City" and "Home of the Steel Curtain," this once global hub for manufacturing created the infrastructure needed to make the United States what it is today.

Fast forward several decades and the city began to lose its image. Steel production continued to fall in favor of imports. Homes lost their value, and businesses slowly left the once famous city. Since then, it's been a journey for the city to find itself an image, but luckily it has.

Technology has begun to become a focal point for the city as it reinvents itself. If Silicon Valley is our tech city of the west, then Pittsburgh is the tech city of the east. Companies have formed and thrived, producing technologies and intellectual property that are used throughout the industry.

Precious Metals, Copper, CRB Commodity Markets Step By Step , Inch by Inch / Commodities / Gambling

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to update some commodities charts we haven’t looked at in a while. There have been some subtle changes taking place that need to be addressed. Just like the PM complex that topped out in 2011 many commodities also topped out that same year and have been correcting ever since. With the US dollar at an important inflection point it may be time for commodities in general to show some relative strength which they haven’t done for a very long time.

Lets start with this very long term monthly combo chart which has the CRB index on top with the US dollar in the middle and gold on the bottom. Back in April of 2011 the CRB index topped out while the US dollar bottomed out exactly at the same time with gold topping out 5 months later in September. As you can see there is a mild correlation between the CRB and gold with their 2011 trendline both sloping down while the US dollar is sloping up.

Gold Stocks Vs Gold – Not A Good Bet / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Kelsey_Williams

Earlier this year,  various gold stock indices (XAU, HUI, GDX) gained more than fifty percent in just three months. Most of the negativity associated with the sector was brushed aside and replaced by positive expectations for the future.

Of course, the 90-day rush to this year’s highs did not occur in a vacuum. The price of gold rose by twenty percent over the same three-month period. The mining shares, however were considerably stronger.

Going back to the fall of 2018, the price of gold increased by thirty percent and gold mining shares increased by about sixty-five percent. The resulting differential of more than 2-to-1 in favor of the mining shares lends possible credence to the argument for shares over bullion.

Silver Price Remains in 'Corrective Downtrend' / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund charts the longer term picture for silver.

Like gold, silver has been in a corrective downtrend following its peak early in September, and it looks like it has further to run before its done, partly of course because we have a downside target for gold in the $1360–$1400 area before it turns up.

On the 6-month month we can see how it has been stumbling lower within a downtrend and it looks like it will break down through the lower boundary of this downtrend to drop to a final downside target probably at support in the $15.30–$15.60 area. It outperformed gold during the summer run up and has underperformed on the subsequent reaction, which is normal, and as we know, silver is weaker than gold during the early stages of a bull market, so this near-term downside target seems reasonable.

Amazon - Snow Falling Effect Christmas Lights Outdoor Projector Review / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: HGR

With Christmas just around the corner we have been on the hunt for various types of christmas lights to brighten up our home for the festive season. And this snow flurry projector sold by UKEER on Amazon for £29.99 (https://amzn.to/2BcpUu7) caught our attention as it appeared to offer a much wide coverage than the usual animated projectors.

Firstly the projector was delivered very quickly in about half the original estimated delivery time.

Secondly, it's main powered with 5 metres of cable.

Thirdly comes with two attachments to set it in place, a stand to attach to a wall and a ground spike.

Fourthly it is water proof to IP65, so should be fine for outdoor weather.

How to FIX Dirty Disk Windows Hard Drive Volume Error 0X80071AC3 / Personal_Finance / How to Guides

By: HGR

Eventually virtually every Windows user is going to come across the Dirty Disk error message that basically locks a hard drive from being able to write to it as a protection. Which ususally coincides with an unexpected loss of power be it your computer being switched off without shutting down or more usually an external hard drive being unpligged whilst data is being writtne to it. Nine times out of ten, your drive will be fine, but there will evertnaully be that one time when you find that you are no longer ablto to write data to the drive.

What's basically happened is that Drive has had it's Dirty Bit set, and to get to write again that dirty bit needs to be cleared. Which can prove more difficult to do than many web sites and youtube suggest to run CHECKDISK and the problem will be fixed. Instead in reality you will find that you have less than a 50% chance of Checkdisk working.

Canadian Cannabis Stocks CRASH as Canopy Growth Hits a Dead End / Companies / Cannabis

By: Stephen_McBride

It was supposed to be a routine police raid…

But when the cops stormed an illegal pot operation in California earlier this year, even grizzled veterans were shocked by what they found.

They went in expecting to confiscate marijuana plants from a farm. Instead, they found a pot factory cranking out 500 pounds of pot a day. That’s nearly enough pot to supply all legal pot shops in California!

As you may know, California legalized recreational pot in 2018… an act that was supposed to put an end to the illegal pot black market. Instead, the total opposite has happened. Black market pot is thriving.

Retail Sector Isn’t Dead, and These 6% Dividend Paying Stocks Prove It / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Robert_Ross

I’m sure you’re familiar with the “retail apocalypse.” Brick-and-mortar retailers are dying off as people buy more stuff online, or so the story goes.

This trend has taken out household names like Circuit City, Blockbuster Video, and Payless ShoeSource. Even luxury retailer Barneys filed for bankruptcy this year.

All told, about 9,000 brick-and-mortar stores closed in 2019. Meanwhile, e-commerce sales are growing around 5% per year. But there’s more to this story...

Despite the headline-grabbing bankruptcies, about 90% of US retail sales still happen in person.

Top 5 Ways to Add Value to Your Home / Housing-Market / Home Improvements

By: Justin_Weinger

How can you add long- and short-term value to your house? Here are what experienced real estate professionals say are the five best ways to ramp up the potential resale price of your dwelling:

Redo the Bathrooms

At the top of home-shoppers’ lists, fresh, newly redone bathrooms are a key selling point for old and new houses. It’s not the cheapest value-adding task you can opt for, but you will definitely get your money back in the selling price, and then some. If your place has more than one bathroom, try your best to budget for both to be redone. Choose a contractor based on a combination of experience and price and be clear that you want the renovated bathrooms to match.
