US Interest Rate Tsunami Waves Spotted Just Offshore / Interest-Rates / US Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

We should all be familiar with the aphorism, “as real estate goes so goes the economy.” Anyone ignoring that economic axiom was completely blindsided by the Great Recession of 2008. Well, the collapse of the Everything Bubble most certainly includes the real estate market…and this time around will definitely not be different. 

The plain and simple fact is that home ownership is getting further out of reach for the average consumer as mortgage rates rise. This is especially true for the first-time home buyer. The 30-year fixed rate mortgage is now the highest level since January 2014, 4.64%

Silver Does it Again! Severe Consequences / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In the free analysis that we posted last Monday, we warned that Friday’s session was likely to be volatile and tricky. This seems to have indeed been the case for silver. The white metal declined early in the day only to rally almost 40 cents from the initial low. In our previous alert, we discussed the possibility of silver topping at about $16.65 and this level was reached. Is silver about to take a dive just like it did in late November 2017?

In short, yes. That seems very likely, especially in light of the multiple long-term and short-term factors and we have received a strong bearish confirmation earlier this week. However, we need to supplement the above with a caveat – the decline may not start immediately, but in a few days. Why? Because of the proximity to the triangle apex reversal along with the lack of a visible rally on Friday suggest that we may still be a day or two away from the top.

Has the Stock Market Rally Run Out of Steam? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

On Friday, SPX closed short of the upper Diagonal trendline near 2800.00. weekend, SPX futures rose to 2805.00, then backed away. It is possible that the futures completed the task of testing that trendline over the weekend.

ZeroHedge remarked, “The "goldilocks" mood that was unleashed after Friday's jobs report (high growth, low inflation) has spread around the globe, sending Asian and European markets higher as trade-war concerns took a back seat to economic optimism. The dollar slipped and Treasuries held strady even as the US Treasury prepares to sell $145 billion in debt today (including both 3Y and 10Y Paper), while most commodities fell.”

S&P 500 at 2,800 Again, Stock Market Breakout or Fakeout? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Paul_Rejczak

Stocks rallied on Friday, as investors reacted to better-than-expected monthly Nonfarm Payrolls number release. The broad stock market retraced its late February move down, while technology stocks reached new record highs. Is this a new leg within multi-year bull market or still just retracement following late January - early February 12% sell-off? Let's take a look at possible future scenarios.

Friday's trading session was very bullish, as the main U.S. stock market indexes gained 1.7-1.8%. Investors' sentiment improved following better-than-expected monthly Nonfarm Payrolls release. The S&P 500 index broke above its short-term consolidation and it got close to the late February local high of 2,789.15. The index currently trades 3.0% below January 26 record high of 2,872.87. Both Dow Jones Industrial Average and the technology Nasdaq Composite gained 1.8% on Friday. The latter reached new record high, as it broke above 7,500 mark again.

Just Another Minor Stock Market Pullback Within a Secular Advance / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Donald_W_Dony

The retracement over the last few weeks has sparked many investors and market pundits to suspect that the bull market may be nearing a crest.

Most world indexes pulled back around 10 percent before finding support in late February and early March. And this was just after reaching new all-time highs in January.

Certainly not the kind of pattern that is associated with major tops in the markets.

Do you think we will ever see a week of market moves associated with news events for which you will not shake your head?

Week after week I think analysts say something so stupid that I just want to scream. As I have pointed out so many times over the years, I keep hoping that some form of sanity will grip pundits one day. I keep hoping that they may wake up and recognize the error of their ways. But, alas, I continue to long for that day.

Labour Sheffield City Councils Secret Plan to Fell 50% of Street Trees Exposed! / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The mainstream press has finally awoken up to the fact that Sheffield city council and it's contractor had all along planned to fell half of Sheffield's street trees. Having kept the information contained within the Streets Ahead PFI contract with Spanish owned Amey secret for over 5 years, previously only releasing heavily redacted pages that failed to answer key questions raised by tree campaigners. Where even towards the end of 2017 the council in the face of growing public opposition and protests on the streets, the Labour councilors still stuck to their mantra of having a target of felling fewer than 6000 trees, following which the contract was said to enter a maintenance phase.

China Police Crackdown Following Xi Jinping Vote for Dictator Emperor for Life / Politics / China

By: Submissions

Rongxian Mu writes: China is a one person one vote nation, and that one vote is by Xi Jinping as no one else's vote matters. And so Xi Jinping today voted for himself to become the new Dictator / Emperor for life of the Jinping Republic of China. Meanwhile a heavy police crackdown is underway across major cities of China such as Zunyi as the police crack down hard on the out breaks of unrest in the run up today's vote for himself by Xi Jinping. The people of China are not going to stand for this and thus a growing resistance movement against the rule of the communist dictatorship is taking place and spreading right across China, none of which is being reported on by the official Chinese state controlled media.

Bond Market Interest Rate Yields Are Rising Again… Stocks Are on Thin Ice / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Graham_Summers

The financial media is awash with claims that Gary Cohn’s resignation as Chief Economic Advisor is triggering a market collapse.

While it’s true that a market collapse is starting again, it has nothing to do with Gary Cohn.

How do I know?

Because Gary Cohn first wrote a resignation letter back in August 2017 in the wake of the Charlottesville mess… and stocks exploded higher beginning one of their greatest rallies in history.

For 5 years Labour controlled Sheffield city council has kept virtually all of the the Streets Ahead PFI contract with Spanish owned Amey secret from the people of Sheffield with only heavily redacted pages being released into the public domain that failed to answer key questions being raised.

An Inflation Indicator to Watch, Part 3 / Economics / Inflation

By: F_F_Wiley

“During the 1980s and 1990s, most industrial-country central banks were able to cage, if not entirely tame, the inflation dragon.”
—Ben Bernanke

Ben Bernanke began his oft-cited “helicopter speech” in 2002 with a few kind words about his peers, including the excerpt above. Speaking for central bankers, he took a large share of the credit for the low inflation of the 1980s and 1990s. Central bankers had gained a “heightened understanding” of inflation, he said, and he expected the future to bring even more inflation-taming success.

Of course, Bernanke’s cohorts took a few knocks in the boom–bust cycle that followed his speech, but their reputations as masters of inflation (and deflation) only grew. Today, the picture he painted seems even more firmly planted in the public mind than it was in 2002, notwithstanding recent data showing inflation creeping higher.

NDX makes a new high. What does that mean? / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The big question being asked is what’s happening with the NDX. I spent a considerable time re-analyzing the NDX at all degrees to see what insight I might get. All of the Waves up to January 26 were impulsive. So, how could a complex double zigzag fit in? The answer lies in the fact that a Wave (B) may exceed the length of its corresponding Wave (A). So, while the SPX and DJIA are still making lower highs, the NDX may simply be giving a non-confirmation top.

There is a precedent for this. In January 2000 the DJIA made its top at 11750.20 while the NDX did not make its high of 4816.24 until March 24. However, 17 market days later the NDX was at a low of 3107.42 (35.5% lower). The point of this is that we may be expecting a severe low in approximately the same time period.
