  • Secret Workings Of The Central Banking Syndicate.
    By on May 30, 2011 | 53 Comments53 Comments  Comments
    Central banks provide a mystical approach to solving economic problems although they were initially created to solve short-term financial panics.  The first central bank was the Bank of England which was established in 1694.  It started out as a private institution but eventually took on a monopo...

    By on May 28, 2011 | 35 Comments35 Comments  Comments
    No, the heading doesn’t relate to the market so don’t panic. As stated in Ecclesiastes 3: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” I can’t recall exactly when I first started writing this Market Wrap but I think that it was in late 2007 when it started ...
  • An Amazing Analog: New York Weather And The Stock Mar...
    By on May 27, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    New Yorkers have recently been getting a lot of rain.  Someone recently complained to me that it had rained in New York City for 5 straight days!  As someone who lives near Tacoma, WA, in what we playfully call the “Pacific Northwet” (sic), 5 days does not sound like a very long time....
  • What Does A Fractal Look Like?
    By on May 27, 2011 | 41 Comments41 Comments  Comments
    If the word ‘fractal’ comes up at all in conversation, that conversation is probably being held in a mathematics department. However, anyone who is interested in the Wave Principle and how it applies to the stock market may have stumbled across the phrase “robust fractal.” If...
  • Bad News Ganging Up On Global Markets
    By on May 25, 2011 | 71 Comments71 Comments  Comments
    For the most part over the last few months markets have had to contend with only one concern at a time. If it was the European debt crisis, concerns about it would subside before concerns about rising inflation flared up again, and inflation concerns would die down before economic reports would br...

    By on May 21, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    In last week’s Market Wrap I suggested the following: “The US market is poised to either bounce from existing levels or have a bit more of a move down before commencing the rally that investors have been patiently waiting for during the last couple of weeks. G4 do expect that if the bottom is n...
  • Federal Reserve: Glaring Failure or Complicity?.
    By on May 20, 2011 | 48 Comments48 Comments  Comments
    The antics of our Federal Reserve rival those of the now disgraced IMF chief although they won’t grab as many gossip headlines.  The Federal Reserve has fashioned a system that has allowed economic bubbles to surface every very few years like high school reunions.  Bubbles are not normal. ...
  • EUR/USD: Falling on “Risk Aversion”?.
    By on May 20, 2011 | 48 Comments48 Comments  Comments
    From the May 4 top near $1.4950, the EUR/USD (the euro-dollar exchange rate and the most actively-traded forex pair) has fallen as low as $1.4050 on May 16. In other words, the dollar has gained 9 full cents on the euro in less than two weeks. That’s a huge move, and people want explanations. ...

  • Houses Under Construction At New Record Low
    By on May 17, 2011 | 34 Comments34 Comments  Comments
    Since the triple dip in housing was recently circumvented courtesy of QE2, and was “transitory” in theory today’s subpar housing starts and permits data is the beginning of the quadruple dip. And subpar it was: starts came at 523K on expectations of 569K, down from revised 585K pre...
  • The Global Economy Burns, While its Leaders Fiddle.
    By on May 16, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    China is by no means a panacea of economic equality or perfect policy. It has a fast growing portion of billionaires and accounts for nearly a third of the world’s luxury goods consumption, while its per capita GDP ranks 125th globally, and 2.8% of Chinese live below the poverty line (according ...
  • G4 Weekly Market Wrap, 13th May 2011!.
    By on May 14, 2011 | 51 Comments51 Comments  Comments
    In last week’s Market Wrap I suggested the following: “Whilst the sentiment in the market has been extremely negative in recent times and in spite of the fact that lows often come near the Full Moon dates, the indications are that we may be heading into a positive period in the coming week for b...
  • Martenson: Why Growth is Dead.
    By on May 13, 2011 | 46 Comments46 Comments  Comments
    The end of the second round of quantitative easing (QE II) is going to be a complete disaster for the paper markets — specifically commodities, stocks, and then finally bonds, in that order, with losses of 20% to 50% by the end of October. The only thing that will arrest the plunge will be ...
  • Martenson: The Coming Rout.
    By on May 13, 2011 | 52 Comments52 Comments  Comments
    There’s a scenario that could play out between May and September in which commodities (including my beloved silver) and the stock and bond markets could all sell off between 20% and 40%.  The trigger will be the cessation of QE II and a multi-month pause before QE III. This is a reversal in...
  • The People vs. Goldman Sachs
    By on May 12, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    They weren’t murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it. Thanks to an ...
  • NYSE Short Interest Warns Of Imminent Short Squeeze
    By on May 11, 2011 | No Comments  Comments
    And just like that, the short trap is set: following some sideways movement over the past several months, in which the market grotesquely, mockingly did not proceed in a straight line up, unlike the 8 month “Birinyi Ruler” period from August to March which extrapolated to about S&P...
