BPR April: Precious Metals Suppression In COMEX Market Continues

As I said last month at this time—along with a couple of Wall Street investment houses, these are “da boyz’—the sellers of last resort—and you can call them what you like. Until they decide, or are instructed to stand back, the prices of all four precious metals are going nowhere—supply and demand fundamentals be damned! As Jim Rickards so correctly put it, the price management scheme is now so obvious, they should be embarrassed about it. But they obviously aren’t.

Market Cycles: Trouble Ahead In The Stock Market

Market Cycles: Trouble Ahead In The Stock Market

Given that the S&P has rallied since early 2009, experienced only a minor correction in 2011, is currently at a cyclic peak, clearly over-bought on a monthly and weekly basis, and has been artificially sustained by central bank easy money, is it likely that the next MAJOR move is up or down? My bet is down.

Silver Projection From Crude Oil & T-Bonds

Silver Projection From Crude Oil & T-Bonds

T-bonds made a 3 sigma move higher in March based on the monthly data through Friday March 27. The crude to T-bonds ratio hit an 11 year low. Lows for the last 20 years in that ratio have marked important lows in crude oil and also important lows in silver since 2000. Maybe this time will be different, but I doubt it. Expect crude oil and silver to rally substantially in 2015 – 2016.

Alert: 3 Sigma Extremes in the Bond Market

Alert: 3 Sigma Extremes in the Bond Market

The March 2015 change in T-Bond prices was a (huge) 3.6 standard deviation move – slightly more rare than a golfing “hole-in-one” and slightly more likely than a “perfect” game in professional baseball. The last 3+ standard deviation move in monthly T-Bond prices occurred in November 2008, during the 2008 stock market crash. Caution is warranted. The global financial system is increasingly leveraged, risky, and appears to be a bubble approaching a “Middle-East or European pin.”

Extremes In The Markets: Expect Consequences (Part II)

Extremes In The Markets: Expect Consequences (Part II)

Debts will increase until a “reset” occurs. Politicians will “extend and pretend” and make MANY promises. The S&P has enjoyed a large rally in the last 6 years. It will correct. Bonds are in a massive bubble, partially created by the low and negative interest rates forced upon the system by central banks. All bubbles eventually burst. Gold and silver and their stocks have been beaten down for four years. They will rally to new highs.

Extremes In The Markets:  Expect Consequences (Part I)

We have many economic and political extremes in our current world. Perhaps this time will be different, but I doubt it. Debt will increase until a “reset” occurs. Politicians will “extend and pretend” and make MANY promises. The S&P has enjoyed a large rally in the last 6 years. It will correct. Bonds are in a massive bubble, partially created by the low and negative interest rates forced upon the system by central banks. All bubbles eventually burst. Gold and silver and their stocks have been beaten down for nearly four years. They will rally to new highs.

This article highlights the main topics covered in an interview between Mr. Frank Suess with the globally renowned Swiss fund manager, Mr. Felix Zulauf.

More And More Americans Look To Protect Their Wealth Offshore

The primary reason to go offshore is SAFETY. The clients and families I work with, almost entirely, are focused on mitigating US-centric litigation risk and political risk. That is where jurisdictional diversification can make a huge difference.
