Since the November 8th election, the NYSE has seen seventeen trading sessions with the Dow Jones closing at new all-time highs in nine of them. I’m not going to argue with success, but seeing the stock market do so well after an election...
As I expected, not much happened in the market until the election. The Dow Jones Index remained in the box it found itself in since early September, until last Friday when it broke down 4% from its last all-time high. Then on Monday the...
The box in the BEV chart below contains the Dow Jones Index since the first week of September. With the presidential election so near, it’s not surprising the market hasn’t done much of anything as our “regulated” markets are being...
I’m not surprised: The week following my article illustrating why I believed the gold and silver miners are “historic buys at today’s prices”; gold, silver and their miners get whacked to their lows of the current, so far eight week...

Looking at market history via the Bear’s Eye View (BEV) plot provides a unique insight into the past. When plotted in dollars, monetary inflation makes nonsense of market data spanning decades. A BEV view of the market, where each new...
For the past two months, excitement in the stock market has been hard to come by. On August 15th the Dow Jones saw its last all-time high, and it made seven new all-time highs in a row in mid-July. But these new highs only nudged the Dow...
