  • Gold Bull Climaxes
    By on May 12, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments
    Gold has had a rough time lately, grinding relentlessly lower.  Such technical weakness has naturally spawned increasingly bearish psychology.  This has led to a fringe view growing in popularity that gold’s mighty secular bull has already given up its ghost.  If these new-bear arguments are co...
  • Plunging Commodities Ominous For Stock Markets!
    By on May 12, 2012 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments
    Consumers understandably like to see prices for commodities decline, the more the merrier, particularly gasoline and energy costs. Many analysts also take commodity price declines as a positive for the economy, on the theory that consumers will have more spending money in their pockets, and manufact...
  • Market Update: Checking On Cycles

    A subscriber wrote to ask how the current 9-Month Cycle relates to the current 4-Year Cycle, if at all. First, let’s look at the 9-Month Cycle chart. I have drawn a vertical dashed line on the far right of the chart to mark where the next 9-Month Cycle is projected to arrive — right abou...
  • Faber: Without More QE, Markets Will Crash Like 1987!
    By on May 11, 2012 | No Comments  Comments
    The quote of the day goes to Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom report. Faber says “I do not have a high opinion of the U.S. government, but the bureaucrats in Brussels make the government in the U.S. look like an organization consisting of geniuses.” Marc Faber spoke wi...

    Dissent, feedback, innovation and adaptation are the only sustainable sources of stability, prosperity and well-being.

  • Scary Chart Says Global Bear Market Underway!
    By on May 11, 2012 | No Comments  Comments
    We haven’t seen this analysis anywhere else, but it’s looking increasingly like global markets outside of the U.S. rolled over into a bear market last April, and that their rally off the October low was only a bear market rally within an ongoing bear market. We’ve been saying we expect on...
  • Financial Crisis, Austerity and the European Jobless ...
    By on May 10, 2012 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments
    So, the big news out of Europe today (and the reason why the U.S. dollar and U.S. Treasuries are rising while everything else falls) is that the jobless rate across the pond has reached a record high at 10.9 percent as protests against austerity measures ratchet up in advance of elections this week...
  • Myth Busted: TARP Will NOT Deliver Positive Returns!

    The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) is a program initiated by the US government, funded by taxpayers, in October 2008 to bail out the banking and housing sector after the 2008 financial crisis. Due to the program’s complexity and “repayment” schemes, there has been different e...

    The battle lines have been drawn as the next evolution of the crisis in the Eurozone will likely be determined in the next 12-18 months as austerity runs up against the socialist agenda. The problems are real and the solutions are evident. In order for the Eurozone to survive the shift from a fragme...
  • The Death Spiral of Debt, Risk and Jobs!
    By on May 10, 2012 | No Comments  Comments
    Debt, risk and employment are in a death-spiral of malinvestment and debt-based consumption. Standard-issue financial pundits (SIFPs) and economists look at debt, risk and the job market as separate issues. No wonder they can’t make sense of our “jobless recovery”: the three are in...
  • Initial Sell Signal In, Confirmation Likely!

    In last weekend’s newsletter we wrote,“The good news is that the market is currently hovering just above support at 1360 with further support at 1350 just below it. This has been the case for the bulk of the current correction and consolidation process.  The bad news is that the market ...
  • Be Careful of Claims About Election Years!
    By on May 9, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments
    As is the case every election year, I’m seeing and hearing a lot about how election years are always positive, and getting a lot of e-mails from non-subscribers asking if the market’s seasonality ever works in election years, since they’re always positive for investors. I can tell you how our...

    Last week was spent in Carlsbad, California at the 9th Annual Strategic Investment Conference.  Because of my absence I did not have a chance to follow up with many of the very important economic reports that hit the wires.  Over the last several months we have been cautioning against the bullish ...
