Gold to Correct as Stocks Rally / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

It has taken a few weeks to play out but our warning of a correction in precious metals (first on August 18) is coming to pass. 

Last week Gold, Silver and GDX all formed big bearish reversals at multi-year resistance levels. Yes, these resistance levels (Gold $1550, Silver $18.50, GDX 31) date back to 2013.

Bonds and precious metals have benefitted from the shift in Fed policy as well as fears of recession and growth in negative interest rate bonds. 

These drivers could pause or shift temporarily and that would be supportive of stocks and not precious metals. Let me explain.

Market Decline Will Lead To Pension Collapse, USD Devaluation, And NWO / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Raymond_Matison

It is the goal of this article to project the current financial, economic, and geopolitical trends to a logical and credible future outcome.  Some of these trends such as in demographics have been in motion for decades, while other trends such as those for negative interest rates have been developing for a much shorter time frame.  Pension asset accumulation and eventual payout also extend over decades, and therefore are reasonably predictable.  Even money and credit creation trends by the FED have been in place for a long period of time.  Finally, the extended bubble market in fixed income and equities, in light of slowing economic trends, provides some assurance to future price expectations. 

It is anticipated that a market decline in global economic activity will reduce fixed income and equity prices such that it will start an unvirtuous cycle between the consumer as driver to the economy and financial markets.   Market declines will become noticeable by negatively affecting pension asset accounts and actual payouts.  Demographic trends will frustrate maintaining our Social Security viable, and severe measures will need to be taken.  State, municipal, teacher, corporate and individual pensions are already falling short of their promises.  The FED has a publicized goal of increasing inflation, while the President wants a weaker dollar.  They will both succeed.  By the time that we exit from the coming Great Global Recession, our dollar very likely will no longer be the world’s leading reserve currency, which will result in a dramatic decline in the purchasing power of the dollar affecting negatively domestic and foreign dollar asset holders, or those receiving pensions in dollars.  The world will have become financially and geopolitically multipolar resulting in a new world order.

Stock Market Sector Rotation Giving Mixed Signals About The Future / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

It seemed the markets wanted to make a point to alert us that volatility may be here to stay very early in trading this week.  After a fairly flat overnight session with very little price volatility, the markets opened up to a moderately large price rotation (first downward, then back higher) before settling into a broader downside move in the early afternoon in New York.  The interesting facet of this move is that it seemed to be related to price valuations and expectations in certain sectors. Before we get into the details, be sure to opt-in to my Free Market Forecast and Trade Ideas Newsletter so stay on top of these market moves.

As we’ve been suggesting for many weeks and months, we are not out of the woods quite yet.  The US markets may be subject to more price volatility than we have considered while the continued Capital Shift (foreign capital pouring into the US markets) may also be shifting.  One thing is certain, now is not the time to try to set up positional trades in the market expecting longer-term price trends to set up and run over the next few months.  This appears to be a traders market where skilled technical traders will shine by finding opportunities and executing very skilled and targeted trades for profits.

More Wall Street Propaganda / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2019

By: Michael_Pento

One of the best examples of Wall Street’s propaganda machine at work is its willingness to dismiss recessionary signals. The inverted yield curve is a perfect example. Case in point, look at the story that was put out on Market Watch dated November 27th 2006—exactly one year before the Great Recession officially began, the stock market started its decline of more than half and the global economy started to collapse.

Here’s how some on Wall Street and the Fed described what was happening on the precipice of the global financial crisis regarding the inversion of the yield curve at that time: “Bernanke, and his predecessor Alan Greenspan, have attributed the inverted yield curve to a ‘global savings glut’ that has sparked fervid demand for Treasuries and U.S. corporate bonds. Economists have noted that this buying spree is inconsistent with the possibility of a looming recession. In the past inverted yield curves have been harbingers of recession, but a number of economists, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, do not think this is the case in the present instance.”

Stock Market Bears Close to Nail-in-Coffin Moment / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Ricky_Wen

The first week of September played out as a picture perfect breakout continuation to our upside targets. If you recall, the final week of August showcased a massive weekly bull engulf candle that basically eclipsed/retraced all the losses of the prior 3 weeks of August for the monthly closing print. This meant that the bears failed, so it’s time for the bulls to launch their counterattack and nail in the coffin of the bears.

During the first week of September, the bulls did just that as they accomplished their ‘hold half and go’ upside continuation setup on Tuesday, holding between the 38.2% and 50% standard fib retracement of the last week of August’s range with the 2889 low on the Emini S&P 500 (ES). On Wednesday night, the bulls proceeded with the decisive breakout above the 2930s-2940s resistance zone, which was the key massive resistance/supply zone of the past 3-4 weeks. The usual feedback loop squeeze setup triggered a vicious cycle of stop-outs and chasers into the 2955 and 2970 continuation targets within minutes.

UUP Bullish Cycles from May 2011 lows / Currencies / US Dollar

By: ElliottWaveForecast

Firstly the dollar tracking ETF fund UUP  inception date was 2/20/2007. Interestingly the dollar index has a low in March 2008. The UUP ETF fund shows a low in May 2011. The dollar index did make a pullback cycle low in May 2011 however it was well above the March 2008 lows. The bullish cycle up from the May 2011 lows in UUP is the focus of this analysis where it begins on the weekly chart. It should see some further upside before any larger size pullbacks relative to the longer term cycles.

Stock Market Price Structure Still Suggests We Are Within Volatile Rotation / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

This shortened holiday week has been full of crazy price rotation, political intrigue, surprise news events and, we are certain, full of headaches for some traders.  Still, we managed to pull out four consistently profitable trades for our members by sticking to our proven trading systems and deploying effective position sizing techniques.  Not a bad week for us at all.

Today, we are writing this research post to highlight that price is still not “out of the woods” in terms of price structure and/or price rotation.  Yes, there was quite a bit of external news that drove prices higher on Thursday and Friday (BREXIT, Earnings, and China decreasing the lending rates as well as decreasing bank asset levels in an effort to prompt more lending).  These news items continue to drive price action and rotation.  The VIX has settled at 15.00 as of Friday – the lowest level seen since early August 2019.  Our opinion is that this is just a brief pause before more chaos hits the markets.

Buying Pullbacks in Silver & Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Avi_Gilburt

By Andy Hecht : After a very bullish summer, it was a week of reversals in the metals markets. The impact of gravity hit the gold and silver markets late last week after both had made new highs. Meanwhile, copper went the other way as the early week new low led to a significant price recovery by the end of the week.

The daily chart of December gold futures highlights the move to a marginal new high at $1566.20 on September 4 that gave way to the selling that dropped price by over $50. Gold has held the $1500 level so far, but time will tell if the reversal on the weekly chart brings a new wave of selling next week.

Government Spending - The High Price of a "Free Lunch" / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

One of the Ten Commandments is “thou shalt not steal,” and theft is generally condemned in most religions, yet our religious leaders and followers have essentially turned a blind eye to government theft.

Based on a policy of envy, Bernie Sanders, for example, has bluntly stated he intends to tax the rich to fund his programs, as though the word rich itself justifies theft. The current crop of other democratic candidates is offering a beehive of free programs without any real discussion on how to pay for them.

Don't Worry About a Recession / Economics / US Economy

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Everyone seems to be wringing their hands about what they fear is an oncoming recession. Indeed, as a sign of the level of the public’s angst, The Economist magazine reports that Google searches related to the word “recession” have surged.

If that wasn’t enough evidence of the hand wringing, the Chairman of President Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers, the respected Tomas Philipson, recently indicated that he was worried about the steady negative drumbeat in the press: that a recession might be just around the corner. Philipson put his finger on the problem when he said, “The way the media reports the weather won’t impact whether the sun shines tomorrow. But the way the media reports on our economy weighs on consumer sentiment, which feeds into consumer purchases and investments.”

Large Drop in Stocks, Big Rally in Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Brad_Gudgeon

The week ahead, looks treacherous for the stock market, but should be a boon for gold, silver and share mining stocks. The cycles, waves and astro aspects are coming together nicely for a possible quick 6% drop on the S&P 500.

The SPX chart below shows the 16 TD top on Sept 5, along with a first quarter moon and Bradley turn. We are going into the 5/35 week cycle low in a 4 year cycle low from late 2015 due Monday-Friday (9/9-13).  These usually go lower than the previous 10 week low that occurred on Aug 5. I don’t believe we go much below 2780 as an extreme target, perhaps as much as 42 points below the August 5 low of 2822.

US Stock Market Hasn’t Cleared The Storm Yet / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

As much as we would like to report that the US Stock market has recently cleared the future concerns of a global economic recession as well as expanded into a new growth phase, we simply can’t make that claim give the data we are seeing from our proprietary price modeling systems.  Overall, this final quarter of 2019, and early into 2020, may shape up to be a very volatile period in the global markets.

Before we get into the details, be sure to opt-in to my Free Market Forecast and Trade Ideas Newsletter so stay on top of these market moves.

Recently, we posted a research post highlighting the price structure of the ES and TRAN charts that continue to suggest price weakness is still driving overall price rotation.  The TRAN chart is very telling currently as it shows much more substantial price weakness in comparison to the ES, NQ, and YM charts.  We believe the continued price strength is seen in the ES, NQ, and YM charts is related to the continued “Capital Shift” where foreign investors are still pouring capital into the US markets believing they are the safest and most secure investments for the future.

Precious Metals Were Ripe for a Pullback / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Gary_Tanashian

If you hear one peep out of the gold community about a precious metals “take down”, “attack” or any other such aggressive or war-like language you will then be hearing some old fashioned and promotional gold bug orthodoxy. Fortunately, a casual look around the Bug-o-Sphere does not yield too many obvious conspiracy theorists or importantly, cheerleaders.

Indeed, it seems that all too many bugs expected this correction in gold, silver and the miners. That is a good thing because when the real top comes these ladies are going to be out front and greed will be running rampant (quite possibly against a negative fundamental or valuation backdrop as in 2008).

Instead, everybody it seems knew about the high risk Commitments of Traders situation for gold and silver. The CoT is not a timer, but for weeks now it had been a condition that’s been in place for a correction. It’s not a “take down”, it’s a condition of too much speculation that had to be addressed. Now it is. Other CoT data available here.

Five Feet High And Rising - Stock Market Bulls False Sense of Security / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Richard_Mills

How high's the water, mama?

Five feet high and risin'

How high's the water, papa?

Five feet high and risin'

Well, the rails are washed out north of town

We gotta head for higher ground

We can't come back till the water comes down,

Five feet high and risin'

Johnny Cash, “Five Feet High and Rising”

US stock markets on Tuesday were like a teenager forced back to school after a summer of fast cars and girls - insolent and bad-tempered. Snapping a three-day winning streak, the Dow and the S&P 500 both fell after US and Chinese tariffs took effect over the long weekend. The sell-off was also influenced by weak US manufacturing data, and more worries over the UK crashing out of the European Union, after the governing Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons due to a Tory member crossing the floor to the Liberal Democrats.

The US manufacturing index for August was just 49.1, marking the first time in three years that America’s manufacturing sector shrank, stoking fears that the slowdown in Europe - Germany is already in recession - has crossed the Atlantic. 

The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield slid to 1.47%, from Friday’s close of 1.50%. Two weeks ago the 2-year Treasury note was higher than the 10-year, a worrying signal that investors are less willing to risk their money on a long-term debt instrument. Known as a yield curve inversion, this phenomenon has been a near-perfect recession indicator for the past 60-odd years.

Baghdad Donald / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

For Donald Trump, it seems that these are the best of times except that they are the worst of times. How else to explain his contradictory demand that the Federal Reserve cut interest rates by 100 basis points despite his repeated claims that our current economy is "the best in the history of the United States?" That kind of "break glass in case of emergency" monetary policy is something that even the eldest among us have only seen once or twice. And those times have certainly been desperate.

As has been showcased in recent days, Trump can flip-flop faster than anyone in Washington. He wants capital gains indexing on Monday, only to abandon the idea on Tuesday. At breakfast, he wants expanded background checks for firearms, but drops the idea by lunch. But in his call to slash interest rates in a "great" economy, the president flip-flops in the same sentence.

Fed’s Cut Puzzle and Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

At the end of July, the Fed trimmed the federal funds rate. However, the dovish U-turn within the FOMC amid solid US economy remains a mystery. We invite you to read our today’s article about the Fed’s cut puzzle and its find out what does it mean for the gold market.

At the end of July, the Fed trimmed the federal funds rate. However, the dovish U-turn within the FOMC – just half a year after an interest rate hike – remains a mystery. After all, the data indicates that the labor market remains strong – unemployment rate is still at the record low – while the GDP has been rising at a moderate rate. While the inflation rate is below the target, it’s still significantly above the deflation zone. So why the heck did the Fed cut rates? The answer to this question is of great importance as long-term implications for gold differ depending on the possible reason.

First, the U.S. central bank could lower interest rates because Powell could not stand the pressure of the White House and the merciless tweets of Donald Trump. The Fed is, of course, nominally independent, but investors should not be naïve. The past presidents and policymakers also applied pressure on the Fed. The most famous example is the story how in 1965, President Lyndon Johnson summoned William McChesney Martin, the Fed Chairman, to his Texas ranch where Johnson physically shoved him around living room, yelling in his face, “Boys are dying in Vietnam, and Bill Martin doesn’t care.” The only difference is that past presidents tended to stick to creating pressure behind closed doors, while Trump is simply more public. If true, it would be a very positive scenario for gold prices. The politicians love low interest rates, and Trump is a particularly vocal supporter of cheap money.
