The Federal Reserve was no doubt troubled by July’s decline in the US unemployment rate to 4.5 percent and increase in job openings to 11.2 million. This is because the Fed’s strategy for reducing the historic price inflation now plaguing the economy — caused by the...
Remember the quaint old days of 2019? We were told the US economy was in great shape. Inflation was low, jobs were plentiful, GDP was growing. And frankly, if covid had not come along, there is a pretty good chance Donald Trump would have been reelected.
A bunch of people are about to make the same mistake again, that they've made over and over and over. Instead of panicking people should have been buying at the bottom.

It was good while it lasted. But now the golden age of near-zero inflation and interest rates is over, and we are paying the price for living in a fool’s paradise since money is no longer free. All this is now changing.

It has been a very rough time for precious metals. In recent months they have endured another terrible selloff that feels like a combination of 2013 and 2008. However, think about how they “looked” technically before major bottoms, like during 2000, 2008, and late 2015...
A little over a year ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Michael Oliver in person at his home in Colorado (listen to that interview here). While he shared a great deal about his unique methods, the main focus of our discussion was the “massive momentum structure”...
As goes Gold's woes, again Bill Shakespeare (significantly paraphrased) comes  to mind, circa 1600:  "...To test the low, or not to test the low? That is the question. Whether 'tis nobler that Gold suffer the slings and arrows by outrageously revisiting 1678, or to...

Inflation moderated a bit in July, fueling hopes that it has peaked. Are they justified? Yes and no, but before I elaborate on this enigmatic answer, let’s see what happened in July. On a monthly basis, the CPI was unchanged then, after rising 1.3 percent in June, as...

The odds for another 0.75% Fed rate hike have risen to around 70% over the last week. This has pushed short-term interest rates and the dollar higher. Gold is slipping back towards critical support. Our cycle work expects one final dip into a September low.

Both gold and silver’s results sagged, but gold stocks are the worst performers so far. What is this decline leading to? Gold moved visibly lower yesterday, silver closed at the second-lowest level in over 2 years, and miners (both GDX and GDXJ) formed their lowest...
