Good morning everyone, have you seen the futures today?

This is sort of funny in a twisted kind of way. Tuesday we're up 220 for no fundamental reason. Wednesday we lose it all. This morning the  futures suggest we get most if not all of it back again.

Gold, Silver, the Vegas Play, and More

Today’s letter is going to take a bit of a twist from our regular Sunday letters.  Not long ago I mentioned our “Vegas Play” in one of the free newsletters, and it caused a lot of buzz.  When you send out a letter that goes to tens of thousands of folks, you will get praise mail, hate mail and everything in between. Well, I got push back from some saying I was just sensationalizing a lucky play to drum up more subscribers. So with that in mind, I want to do a bit of history searching, and see if that’s really what I was doing.

I have been a precious metals bull in Gold since 2000. I pounded the table on it, and even said in one particular newsletter that “I think we’ll see gold at 1000 dollars an ounce within ten years”.  At the time I wrote that, gold was 295 dollars an ounce. I was soundly mocked and laughed at as a lunatic.  As Gold rose higher and higher I continued to tell folks that I was still buying it and it still looked great.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.

Well, he did it. Draghi brought out the bazooka.  In a policy move that only an academic from Wall Street can understand, if what you've been doing doesn't work, then do more of it.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a good one for you all. Down here in Florida the weather God's smiled widely, as we had two spectacular days of bright sun, blue sky's and 78 degree temps.  It was truly glorious and we took advantage of it. We got our "chores" done Saturday, leaving Sunday wide open for our bike ride and beach walk.  I hope you also got a chance to enjoy the great outdoors.

Morning all, and a happy Tuesday to ya.....

Yesterday was strange on a lot of levels. The Chinese got into the IMF, which everyone and his brother said was "not going to change anything" and yet moments later the market headed deeper into the red, and never recovered.

Good morning everyone, get ready for yet another day of shaking your head and saying "huh?"

Oil and the Big Save

Please don’t take this the wrong way folks, but it has to be said. On Sunday I laid out the numbers that we had to hold, or we very well could have been facing a serious market decline. I titled the letter “Crash alert – High”  I  was NOT predicting a crash in that letter. I was saying that we had very important technical levels that had to hold or we could then see a much deeper correction.  A lot of folks evidently didn’t pay attention to that part. All they saw was “crash” not the levels that needed to break to create one.

On Monday the market fell right down to those levels. Then it chopped around for hours as the “fight was on” between shorts and longs. We had fallen 120, then bounced for 100 then went red again by 40.  The day was very “up in the air” as to where it was going to go. But very late in the session, the FT put out a headline that the Greeks had changed their tune and weren’t lobbying for total debt relief, and willing to work out a repayment schedule. That was the “hot button” the market needed to blast higher off those numbers.

Morning all....

Well at 8 am the first thing we learned is that the ECB has left rates "unchanged". Well there's a surprise eh?  They certainly couldn't raise them, and since they're basically at 0 now, cutting seems pretty desperate.  So, shortly after the ECB announcement, the US futures were up about 15 points on the DOW, 2 on the S&P. Now of course all eyes will be on Mario Draghi, as they expect him to plead the case for massive QE, something he's been jawboning about for two years.

10.22.2014 No European Bond Buying?? Bookmark

Danger Will Robinson!  Or something like that....This entire snapback rally has been manufactured by a couple Fed heads suggesting that maybe QE can stay in place for longer, and some bogus headlines out of Europe suggesting that the ECB was about to go on its own bond buying spree.  Well guess what? Two European ECB officials have now denied that they're doing anything of the sort.  Isn't that interesting?

Well that was fun. Just because the Central banks jawboned about possibly extending QE, we've rallied hundreds of points. It wasn't because we opened more small businesses, or cut taxes or cured cancer...nope. Just the hint that the Fed punchbowl might get refilled fired them up.

But now the ECB has denied that it is going to go on a bond buying spree twice already
