Stocks Bear Market Rally Last Gasp Before Earnings Season / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Before I get started with my stock market analysis here is my take on the political assassination of Boris Johnson, who was stabbed in the back Thursday by so called colleagues Julius Caesar style by a Tory party that effectively committed electoral suicide. Britain demonstrates the illusion of democracy where we vote one person and his party in who soon gets replaced with a waste of spacer that the electorate did not vote for! A loss of a PM for any reason should automatically trigger a general election.

Formulating a UK House Prices Forecast  / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

House prices will be higher a year from now, 2 years from now and definitely 3 years from now, the question mark is how high?

Momentum suggests a flat lining market from late 2022 with very light upwards price pressure during early 2023 that could see house price inflation briefly fall towards zero accompanied by maybe a couple of down months before the bull market resumes going into 2024 and 2025.

Net immigration of 300k and an expected Ukrainian influx of at least 200k is going to put the UK housing market under extra strain and upwards price pressure.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The pandemic has resulted in many tens of millions more americans working from home. As someone who has been working form home for a good 15 years I can well understand why house prices have rocketed higher as prospective home buyers both seek out properties that are better suited to working from home, more suburban, quiet office spaces, plenty of storage, or view properties with scope to being upgraded into work from home environments.

Trial Begins in Gold & Silver Manipulation Case Against J.P. Morgan Official / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2022

By: MoneyMetals

Fears of further Fed tightening continue to weigh on metals markets.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve released the minutes from its most recent policy meeting. As CNBC reported, central bankers remain fixated on inflation.

CNBC Reporter: The minutes of the latest Fed meetings show that officials agreed that another rate hike of 50-75 basis points would likely be appropriate at its meeting later this month. Officials also acknowledge that there could be an even more restrictive stance that could be appropriate if inflation remains high. Now, the minutes show that Fed officials were worried about inflation becoming entrenched, that was debated several times in this document. Many participants viewed that as a significant risk.

What are the benefits of doing good deeds? / Personal_Finance / Social Issues

By: Mark_Adan

There are several benefits to doing good deeds, both short-term and long-term. Short-term benefits can include feeling good about yourself, having a positive impact on others, and making a difference in the world. Long-term benefits can include developing self-confidence, gaining moral character, and developing a sense of purpose in life.

Self-confidence is one of the most commonly cited benefits of doing good deeds. When you feel good about yourself, you are more likely to feel confident in other areas of your life, including your work and relationships. Building self-confidence can be difficult, but it is definitely worth the effort.

Does Selling Put Options During A Market Downturn Provide A Safety Net? / InvestorEducation / Options & Warrants

By: Chris_Vermeulen

In a significant market downturn, bearish sentiment, if not outright fear, can drive down the share price of good companies rather drastically.  When the market is in a sustained selling mood, there can be a substantial disconnect between the long-term fundamentals and the technical price action we see on the chart. 

The Temptation to Bottom Fish

What can we do when good companies are trading at what appear to be bargain prices?  We could “stick our toe in the water” and buy shares.  But what if we’re wrong about whether a bottom in the share price is in place?  Or what if the stock takes a very long time to build a base and goes nowhere for an extended period?

What Needs to Happen for the Gold Stocks GDXJ to Hit New Lows? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2022

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Although the general stock market has risen, this trend may soon reverse. Since it often moves along with gold stocks, junior miners can face a fall too.

Let the S&P 500 Be a Clue

Mining stocks declined significantly this week, but they haven’t severely underperformed gold. There is a good reason for it – the general stock market moved higher recently.

What would have to happen for the mining stocks (in particular, junior mining stocks) to decline in a more profound manner and slide well below $30 (in the GDXJ)? For example, the trend in the stock market could reverse.

Guess what – that’s exactly what’s likely to happen based on what’s going on in the S&P 500 chart.

UK house Prices and Yield Curve Inversions / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Bank of England just like it's US counterpart recognises the significance of the yield curve inversions not because it has magical powers but that it tends to act as a self fulfilling prophecy, i.e. if enough people act on such as trigger as they tend to do then YES it will negatively impact on economic activity as market participants respond accordingly.

However in this respect the Bank of England has done a good smoke and mirrors job of masking the importance of yield curve inversions in the UK, which just don't carry as much weight as they do in the US. The UK yield curve has already temporarily inverted in December, but as has been the case for some time it tends to be of a con flip significance. At best UK yield curve inversions signal economic stress that we are already well aware of.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

So what do you think the Bank of England is going to do as maturing bonds are removed from it's balance sheet, I will tell you whats going to happnen, they are going to subvert QT so that most of the money the treasury pays the Bank of England on mautirng bonds is going to find it's way back to Treasury in a technical excercise of deleting maturing bonds off central banks balance sheet.

The only question market is will the clueless mainstream financial press be able to cotton on to the inflationary Weimer Republic money printing scam that the Bank of England and Treasury will be perpertruating or not?

Euphoric US Dollar Slams Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2022

By: Zeal_LLC

The euphoric US dollar rocketing stratospheric to extreme multi-decade highs slammed gold this week!  That vertical surge ignited heavy gold-futures selling, hammering gold into a serious technical breakdown.  The resulting sentiment damage was severe, with traders now convinced gold is doomed to spiral much lower.  But a major reversal is imminent in the radically-overbought dollar, which will catapult gold higher.

Gold has two primary drivers, investment demand and gold-futures speculation.  Investment capital flows are much-larger and ultimately far-more-important.  But because of the extreme leverage inherent in gold futures, speculators punch way above their weights in influencing gold price action.  They totally dominate gold when investors are mostly missing-in-action.  And the US dollar’s fortunes are their main trading cue.

Each gold-futures contract controls 100 ounces of gold, worth $180,600 entering this week.  But traders are only required to maintain $7,200 cash margins in their accounts for each contract traded.  That makes for maximum leverage of 25.1x, over an order of magnitude greater than the 2x legal limit in the stock markets.  At 25x, each dollar traded in gold futures has 25x the gold-price impact of a dollar invested outright!

But that kind of leverage is exceedingly-risky, as a mere 4% gold move against speculators’ bets wipes out 100% of their capital risked.  Always facing fast total ruin, these traders’ time horizons are forced to be ultra-short-term.  They can only care what gold prices are doing in coming hours or days, even weeks are too distant.  That extreme-leverage-necessitated myopia often leaves gold inversely slaved to the US dollar.

How to Prepare for a Hard-Hitting Stocks Bear Market (Think 1929-1932) / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: EWI

This metric of bullishness is higher than it was at the top of the dot-com mania

An important step in preparing for a historic bear market is to embrace cash or cash equivalents.

This may seem obvious, but even with the stock market in a downtrend, cash is shunned by many an investor -- retail and professional. Many of these investors believe the bull market will resume -- sooner rather than later.

As the May Elliott Wave Theorist, a monthly publication which analyzes financial markets and major cultural trends, noted:

The percentage of assets dedicated to equities in American Association of Individual Investors members' portfolios remains near a bullish extreme. ... They think a "correction" is in force but not a bear market.

So, AAII members have been holding more stocks than cash.

The Fed Is Afraid of Inflation and Tightens Its Hawkish Stance / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The Fed gives no illusions: it will maintain its hawkish stance. Meanwhile, gold plunged decisively below $1,800, which has bearish implications.

Yesterday (July 6, 2022), the FOMC published the minutes from its last meeting, held in mid-June. Although the publication reveals no major surprises about US monetary policy, it shows rising worries within the Fed and also strengthens its hawkish rhetoric.

Why? First, the Committee’s members acknowledged that “the near-term inflation outlook had deteriorated since the time of the May meeting.” They also agreed that risks to inflation were skewed to the upside and that persistently high inflation could de-anchor inflation expectations:

Many participants judged that a significant risk now facing the Committee was that elevated inflation could become entrenched if the public began to question the resolve of the Committee to adjust the stance of policy as warranted. On this matter, participants stressed that appropriate firming of monetary policy, together with clear and effective communication, would be essential in restoring price stability.

Commodities: Bounce or Something More? / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Gary_Tanashian

Commodities have been corrected hard, generally to support

It is amazing how compressed the cycles are in the markets these days. But maybe it’s not so surprising when you consider the constant involvement of meddling, manipulating central banks and even governments. Add a dash of hysterical media and the human instinct for knee-jerk herding and voila, there you have it; sentiment in commodities (and the inflation trades in general) going from absolutely rock solid (over) bullish to bleak in the span of a month.

All of this in the wake of an entity that held out dovish as long as it could before being directed by the market to put on its hawk costume and go steroidal in its inflation fighting stance. Seriously, market participants are taking their cues from a monetary authority that itself is taking cues from the bond market’s signaling (tardy though they were on the uptake). The link above shows the 3 month T-bill yield’s directive that the Fed aggressively raise rates back back in February. There were other signals as well demanding the same.

Crude Oil Collapsed Below $100PPB – Has The US FED Broken Inflation? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Chris_Vermeulen

On Tuesday, July 5th, Crude Oil collapsed very sharply, down over 10% near the lows, in an aggressive breakdown of the price. The $97.43 lows reached that day were more than -14% from recent highs (set on June 29, 2022) and more than -21% from highs set on June 14, 2022.

Consumer Discretionary Spending Likely To Fall Further

In a recent research article (published June 9, 2022: CRUDE OIL PRICE AND CONSUMER SPENDING – HOW THEY ARE RELATED), we shared a similar breakdown that took place in Crude Oil in 2009 and how tightening consumer spending often correlates with peaks in Crude Oil when crisis events happen.
