I covered municipal bond yields last year as they approached their second anniversary of an amazing and historic yield inversion.  Geeze Louise, muni-bonds pay tax-free income, yet since November 2011 they have yielded more than Barron’s...
Precious metals investors can’t look back at this week’s declines in gold and silver and not be a little upset.  But it’s important to keep in mind that nothing happened this week that reversed the decade long bullish trends for gold and...
On Tuesday of last week (March 5), the Dow Jones closed above its last all-time high of 14,164.53 on 9 October 2007, when it closed at 14,253.77.  As seen in the table below, each day since (until today), the Dow Jones made a new all-time...

“Economic stimulation” is now a way of life for our “policy makers.”  They have no other choice today but work hard all day and all night long.  As Richard Russell has said for decades; “the Federal Reserve must inflate or die.”  He was...
