The S&P 500 has upleg room to run

The S&P 500 has upleg room to run

The US stock markets have been on fire lately, still marching higher even after the S&P 500 powered to its best January in 15 years.  Doubted from its very birth, this latest stock-market upleg continues to inexorably climb the proverbial Wall of Worry.  But while bears keep on arguing for its imminent demise, today’s upleg actually still has plenty of room to run higher.  Despite the naysayers, it isn’t too late to buy in yet. To understand where the winds of probability are likely blowing the stock markets next, we first have to gain crucial perspective on where they have been. And good charts are worth far more than a […]

How Bull Markets Evolve into Bubbles – How about the Gold Bull Market

How Bull Markets Evolve into Bubbles – How about the Gold Bull Market

There is a science to market movements and various trends because human nature is consistent over time. Bear markets follow a pattern as do bull markets. In recent weeks we’ve noted the similarities between the past four equity bull markets. They start off strong for six or seven years before slowing down over the next five years. Then they break to new highs and eventually accelerate into a bubble. As we show in this update, change in valuation explains how bull markets evolve into bubbles. The following chart shows the Nikkei (black) and its price to earnings ratio (blue). The chart comes from DailyWealth but the annotations are mine. In our opinion, […]

Video – David Morgan talks about the rush to commodities

David Morgan tells on Fox Business (TV) that he thinks a rush to commodites and mainly precious metals is coming. That’s higher prices coming, although they will maybe not skyrocket in the very short run.

Lots of people expect a rally in the gold price and silver price in 2012. David Morgan is in that same camp; he expects that […]

The Dollar Confirms a Possible Silver Pullback

The Dollar Confirms a Possible Silver Pullback

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom (for those who invest in gold) , it was the age of (central bank) foolishness, it was the epoch of belief (in Chinese growth) , it was the epoch of incredulity (in fiat money), it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the (Arab) spring of hope, it was the winter of (Syrian) despair.” With several of our own additions in parenthesis, these are the opening lines of the famous novel “A Tale of Two Cities,” by Charles Dickens whose 200th year birthday was celebrated around […]

Peter Grandich believes that we’re in the midst of a stealth gold bull market. Grandich, editor and publisher of The Grandich Letter, recently penned the book Confessions of a Wall Street Whiz Kid, the moniker “Good Morning America” gave to him after he predicted the Black Monday stock market crash in 1987.

Silver Forecast

Silver Forecast: Is Silver Outperforming The Gold Fractal? Below, is an extract of my Silver Premium Update for 25 January 2012: Since my last silver articles (here and here), the silver chart has been following the patterns, I have been tracking, quite nicely. Below is an updated version of the gold vs. silver fractal: I have highlighted the patterns (marked 1 to 10) on gold and silver to illustrate how they are similar. It seems that silver is now just past point 12, and it has broken out at the blue downtrend line. If it follows the gold pattern exactly, it will move along in the channel formed by the two brown […]

Hayek on Money: let the people choose

| February 12, 2012 | Articles: Gold Silver Prices

“With the exception only of the 200-year period of the gold standard (1714 to 1914 in Britain), practically all governments of history have used their exclusive power to issue money in order to defraud and plunder the people.” In 1976, Nobel laureate economist Friedrich Hayek wrote these bold words in a published address called Choice in Currency: A Way to Stop Inflation. In it, Hayek makes the direct and commonsensical argument that the only true way to fight inflation was to keep government honest, and the only way to keep government honest was to take away government’s legal privilege to issue money exclusively. Hayek’s proposal was simple: repeal “legal tender” laws […]

Gold Prices fall after weak Greek reforms rejected

Gold Prices were heading for their second weekly fall Friday lunchtime in London, as they drifted down towards $1700 per ounce following European ministers’ rejection yesterday of the latest austerity proposals from Greece. Silver Prices also traded lower, hitting $33.27 per ounce – 1.4% down on last week’s close. Stocks, commodities and the Euro all fell, while the Dollar gained along with prices for major nation government bonds. “Gains in the US Dollar and consistent disappointment from the European Union regarding the Greece debt deal are curbing any gains in gold,” reckons Pradeep Unni, senior analyst at commodity brokerage Richcomm Global Services in Dubai. “People are just throwing in the towel because […]

Gold Continuing to Fail at $1750

Gold Continuing to Fail at $1750

Gold has now spiked through the $1750 level several times since the end of last month but has not been able to CLOSE THROUGH this level. Until it does, the market will not be able to start a new leg higher in the uptrend. Generally speaking, markets tend to pause at resistance levels until they can gather enough of a spark to take them strongly through those or they retreat and consolidate leading to some basing action. During the latter, some of the shorter term oriented bulls will liquidate longs out of frustration or out of a desire to cash in some profits and bank them. That selling then paves the […]

Why our currency will fail

The idea that the very same economic forces that are currently plaguing Greece, et al., are somehow not relevant to the United States’ circumstances does not hold water. As goes the rest of the world, so goes the US. When we back up far enough, it is clear that money and debt are there to reflect and be in service to the production of real things by real people, not the other way around. With too much debt relative to production, it is the debt that will suffer. The same is true of money. Neither are magical substances; they are merely markers for real things. When they get out of balance with reality, they […]
