Predictions

 

A prediction (Latin præ-, "before," and dicere, "to say"), or forecast, is a statement about an uncertain event. It is often, but not always, based upon experience or knowledge. There is no universal agreement about the exact difference between the two terms; different authors and disciplines ascribe different connotations.

Hello all, and a Happy Wednesday to you all....

Yesterday was a snorefest of epic proportions. On very little volume ( 45 million SPY traded) we ended the day with the DOW off 46 and the S&P off 6.  It was a lot like Monday, we just sat there bouncing up and down in a channel all day, and ultimately ending the show at the low end of that channel.

Happy Tuesday to ya.....

Yesterday we closed out the day flat.  The DOW slipped by 22, the S&P by 3. It was another in a long string of low volume pause days.  I'm not positive but I think it was the second lowest volume day of the year.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As I always do, I hope it was a good one for you all.  I won't bore you to tears with mine, since the weather sort of washed us out, and I have nothing fun to report. 

6.3.2017 - One Gram...The Start? Bookmark

The free letter is up for the weekend and in it we look at the new digital currency backed by a gram of gold, called cunningly enough "OneGram".  We talk about how or if this is going to affect the gold market, since it will allow Muslims that were barred from using gold for transactions, to begin. Estimates are that if just 1% start using gold assets, it will create 1000 tons of demand per year. 

 

Of course we mention the new all time highs too. They seem pretty common lately, despite the obvious slowdown in jobs and manufacturing.

Oh no, Not Gold Again!

Yeah, it’s Gold again. Maybe. Let’s chat about why....

Good morning everyone, we've made it to another Friday. Is it me or do they just roar on by faster and faster?  It sure seems like this week was a blur

Hello everyone, happy Thursday to ya....

So yesterday was another slumberfest that ended with the DOW off 20 and the S&P down 1. Volumes were punk, but "they" did the job of reversing an 80 point drop to just a 20 point miss. They worked the S&P from down 9 shortly after the open, to down just 1.

This morning the futures are quite flat. At 8 am, we have the S&P up 1, the DOW down about 8. However the first round of economic news wasn't so hot. The Challenger Grey layoff report hit and it rose about 40%. Evidently, last month the employers went and laid off about 51K people, the biggest jump in a year.

5.31.2017 - The Dreaded Double Whammy Bookmark

Good evening all, the latest issue of our Free Investing Newsletter is posted, and in this we talk about the distortions infecting the market from two directions. One is the ETF explosion and the other is Central bankers  that are buying stocks, something we didn't see 15 years ago. 

 

When you get done reading this article, you'll understand why fundamentals have flown out the window and stocks that should NOT be up, are up anyway. This is going to be problematic at some point, but for now it's business as usual. Give it a read, and it might clear some things up for you.

The Double Whammy
 
It’s quite hard to write a “financial” letter 2 times a week for almost 25 years and not go over some of the same things.   Knowing that I try my best to change it up as often as I can, so repetition doesn’t bore you and I to tears.
 
However, there’s something that I’ve written about before that I think needs not only closer inspection, but a real hard “think” about the ramifications.  So let’s get started with the first part of the double whammy...
