When the global market counterparty, USD (DXY) and the Gold/Silver ratio (monetary, counter-cyclical vs. a less monetary, more cyclical/industrial precious metal) rise moderately the indication can be Goldilocks/disinflation, like the...

In the last few weeks we have been allowing for, even anticipating a renewed bout of inflation concerns as the yield curve (10-2) steepens, nominal yields had dropped significantly to support and now finally CME traders lunge to the ‘no...
