Why Would You Even Think About Buying Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: Avi_Gilburt

Gold is a relic of the past. There is no interest from the millennials for gold. The cryptocurrencies are taking demand away from gold. Central banks have been selling gold over the last few years. Interest rates do not support a rally in gold. Gold funds have been closing of late, which evidences the lack of demand for gold.

We have heard so many reasons as to why no one should buy gold. In fact, the people you speak with about gold either view it with disgust (those who own it) or complete indifference (those who do not).

Gold and Silver’s Stormy September / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: P_Radomski_CFA

There were only a few analyses that we started with a quote, and there were even fewer that we began by quoting a song. It may even be the first one ever.

I am the storm and I am the wonder
And the flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

  • Royksopp, “What Else Is There”

And you will have all the above in September. At least if you’re going to pay attention to gold, silver and mining stocks.

Will the Indonesian Rupiah Heading Towards the 16,500 level? / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

As of late, Emerging Markets have been garnering much attention. Unfortunately it was for the wrong reason. Emerging Market currencies like the Turkish Lira, Argentinian Pesos and the South African Rand have been almost in free fall mode.

What is the narrative behind this?

It all started right after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. Needless to say recent financial crisis such as the Asian Financial Crisis in 1998 and the Global Financial Crisis originated from having too much money in the economy. As in the Asian Financial Crisis there were just too much easy money going around in the economy. Banks have been lending out money to unqualified borrowers which in turn used the money to speculate in the housing and stock markets. This eventually pushes up asset prices way beyond their fundamental values. Hence, bubbles are created and the authorities are slow in tackling the problem. They only acted when the crisis is almost out of control. Sounds familiar to the causes of the Global Financial Crisis and the current Emerging Market Crisis?

Gold Price Analysis: 3 Ideas Make Tough Trading / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: WavePatternTraders

If you have been following Gold over the last few years you are probably frustrated like most Gold bulls are, essentially Gold and Gold stocks have gone nowhere for the past two years, although you could argue that the many Gold stocks have a downwards bias the past two years, but Gold is still above the Dec 2016 lows.

There are a number of patterns that I am currently watching and no one idea has a strong foothold, although if any upside fails to move above $1340, then it will make a better case for Idea 3 and a large triangle has been in progress over the last 2 years.

We Have Had 9 Years To 'Prepare For The Stock Market Crash,' So Are We There Yet? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Crash

By: Avi_Gilburt

This past week, I read an article entitled “When Will S&P 500 Valuations Matter Again?,” written by Gary Gordon.

And, in his first bullet point, he said “truth be told, valuations have not mattered for the public markets for three-and-a-half years.” He then goes on to state that “on virtually any methodology one employs, the U.S. stock market is extremely overpriced.”

In coming to this conclusion, he has reviewed price-to-free-cash-flow, price-to-sales, market-cap-to-GDP, and other valuation matrices. Yet, as he noted in his bullet point, these valuations have not mattered for the three and half years where the market added 50% to its price. Yes, that is a 50% return which cannot be supported by traditional valuation methodologies.

Financial Crisis 10 Years Later – No Lessons Learned / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2018

By: James_Quinn

“A variety of investors provided capital to financial companies, with which they made irresponsible loans and took excessive risks. These activities resulted in real losses, which have largely wiped out the shareholder equity of the companies. But behind that shareholder equity is bondholder money, and so much of it that neither depositors of the institution nor the public ever need to take a penny of losses. Citigroup, for example, has $2 trillion in assets, but also has $600 billion owed to its own bondholders. From an ethical perspective, the lenders who took the risk to finance the activities of these companies are the ones that should directly bear the cost of the losses.”John Hussman – May 2009

This month marks the 10th anniversary of the Wall Street/Fed/Treasury created financial disaster of 2008/2009. What should have happened was an orderly liquidation of the criminal Wall Street banks who committed the greatest control fraud in world history and the disposition of their good assets to non-criminal banks who did not recklessly leverage their assets by 30 to 1, while fraudulently issuing worthless loans to deadbeats and criminals. But we know that did not happen.

Now, a month on from the Bank of England’s decision to increase the base rate to 0.75%, Moneyfacts.co.uk assesses the impact this rise has had on the mortgage market.

If you’re one of those people wondering what bitcoin is all about, then you’ve come to the right place. Today we’ll be looking at more information about bitcoin, including the overall bitcoin market. Here’s all you need to know about the bitcoin market.

UK Savers Denied Full Base Rate Rise on Easy Access Accounts / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As we predicted in August, the savings market hasn’t yet fully benefitted from the base rate rise, which savers may have expected. Now one month on, the latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that many of the nine biggest high street banks* have failed to pass on the 0.25% rate rise to their easy access accounts. In fact, the average easy access rate has risen by just 0.06% since last month.

Toward ‘America First’ NAFTA / Politics / Protectionism

By: Dan_Steinbock

Despite the Trump administration’s frantic last-minute efforts to hammer the NAFTA agreement, the attempt failed within the US timeline, so the talks continue. Why is the revised deal so important to the White House?

Last Friday, the trade talks between the United States and Canada broke off without an agreement.

The negotiations on the revised North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are not over, however. The talks continue and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will meet again Canada’s foreign minister Chrystia Freeland.

Super Bullish Gold and Silver Set-Up Does Not Bode Well for the US Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund charts gold and silver and finds some positive signs. If you want to understand the great mass of investors, you don't need to spend hours reading a book written about a hundred years ago, the best way way to do it is to treat yourself to some time watching sheep. You can even make something of a vacation of it by going along to a sheep dog trial, such as the classic ones held on the English–Welsh borders in the heart of sheep country or in New Zealand. It's a fun day out and you can learn from chatting with the farmers, and more to the point, you can learn a lot about investors by watching the sheepdogs and the sheep—all you have to remember is that the sheepdogs are the Smart Money and the sheep represent the great mass of investors, the so-called Dumb Money. If you do go to the sheepdog trials on the English–Welsh borders, remember to tag on a day or two to visit nearby Hay-on-Wye, which is stuffed full of secondhand bookshops where you can find some great old books, and mercifully very few of them are written in Welsh.

The U.S. stock market (S&P 500) has become overbought for the first time in a long time. It’s 14 daily RSI has reached 70 for the first time since late-January 2018 while it remains above its 200 daily moving average.

In other words, momentum has returned to the stock market.

When momentum returns to the stock market, its forward returns over the next year are very bullish. Don’t turn bearish just because the stock market is overbought.

Silver Mining Stocks SIL ETF Q2’18 Fundamentals / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2018

By: Zeal_LLC

The major silver miners’ stocks have been thrashed, pummeled to brutal multi-year lows.  They suffered serious collateral damage as silver plunged on gold’s breakdown, driven by crazy-extreme all-time-record silver-futures short selling.  All this technical carnage left investors reeling, devastating sentiment.  The silver miners’ recently-reported Q2’18 results reveal whether their anomalous plunge was justified fundamentally.

Four times a year publicly-traded companies release treasure troves of valuable information in the form of quarterly reports.  Companies trading in the States are required to file 10-Qs with the US Securities and Exchange Commission by 45 calendar days after quarter-ends.  Canadian companies have similar requirements.  In other countries with half-year reporting, many companies still partially report quarterly.

“Gold is just too volatile” to be an effective inflation hedge.

I recently traveled to Toronto, Canada. My wife and I took a bicycle tour and traveled to the waterfront, the old Distillery District, over to the CN Tower, up to Chinatown, and then through Kensington.

You notice things as you ride around. The people are nice, almost to a fault. The streets aren’t as clean as I expected. The population is very diverse, and they speak many languages.
