In NFTRH we did a lot of work managing the oncoming correction, the valid reasons behind it (these reasons are beyond the scope of this post, but don’t listen to the perma-bulls, they were more than valid and readable in advance), the now nearly 5 month old correction...

Did the Federal Reserve just usher in the next phase of the U.S. dollar’s decline? On Wednesday, the central bank recommitted to leaving its benchmark interest rate near zero for the foreseeable future.
In recent weeks we wrote first that the gold mining stocks were approaching a bottom and later that they had hit bottom. Bottoms typically occur in an instant. They are rarely a process like tops.
The behavior of the mining stocks since early August is the reason why I am emphatic in recommending to never go “all in” and to keep plenty of cash on hand to take advantage of market pullbacks. The sector had a massive up-cycle since mid-March.

Gold is winding up to set new all-time high record prices next year. I know it may not feel that way for some right now, with gold correcting and consolidating since early August.
Over the past few months, my research team and I have published a number of articles suggesting a broader market depreciation cycle has set up in the US/global markets that may propel precious metals much higher over the next 5+ years. If you have missed these, then...

By now it seems that gold’s refusal to rally despite the USD Index testing new lows is an example of bucking the trend. The same applies to silver and the miners. This trend, throughout recent history, has implied that the stronger the value of the U.S. dollar, the...
We have written much on the topic of economic measurement. Does the dollar measure gold, is it appropriate to say that “gold went up”? Or does gold measure the dollar?
Gold often begins a significant seasonal rally around the time of the Fed’s December meeting. The next Fed meet begins today… and gold is up nicely this morning!

The Governing Council of the ECB met last week, announcing significant, dovish changes to its monetary policy . First of all, the ECB decided to increase the envelope of the pandemic emergency purchase program (PEPP) by €500 billion to a total of €1,850 billion. It...

Silver still has some way to go before bottoming. It has not rallied despite a lower USDX (gold and miners did not rally either) and a higher stock market. Silver has bright days ahead, but not until it passes this most recent downward shift in trend. And please...

Americans may start the New Year without certainty as to who will be sworn in as president on Inauguration Day. President Donald Trump and his supporters can’t find courts willing to consider their evidence of widespread voter fraud. Trump is not likely to concede...

When the market cap of equities reaches 183% of GDP and gov't bonds yield near 0%, or even less overseas, the notion that one can just buy and hold a balanced portfolio is extremely dangerous. The minefield is not packed with IEDs, it is actually replete with...

Here was a reassuring headline last week from Forbes online:  Airbnb’s Higher Valuation Is Reasonable.  What a relief! We can always count on the financial news media to provide a list of reasons why a stock is not overvalued no matter what its price.

Cognitive dissonance is the uncomfortable feeling one gets when, for example, one is in a new place and one ‘knows’ instinctively where east and west is, but then the sun the next morning rises in what one ‘knows’ is ‘west.’ It disorientates one and creates a...

Last week's trading saw gold forming its high in Tuesday's session, here doing so at the 1879.80 figure. From there, a sharp decline was seen into late-week, with the metal dropping all the way down to an early-Friday low of 1826.80 - before bouncing off the same...

An alliterative title, indeed favourably flowery for Gold's having ground up the so-called "weak longs", its gathering fresh ones and getting grooved for the oft-seasonal price rise into year-end.

Since November 16th when the Dow Jones made its first BEV Zero since its -37.5% market bottom of last March, it has remained within 2.5% of its BEV Zero as well as making two additional new all-time highs.  The current chaos resulting from the presidential election...

The full-year 2020 was a wild year for gold. After a strong 2019, the gold price took a hit in March 2020 as global liquidity evaporated and real interest rates spiked. However, the inevitable policy response of rate cuts, massive QE, and huge fiscal deficits...

After making a top shy of its 3740 projection, SPX could retrace down to about 3600 before completing its current minor correction.

After a recent spike to the upside over the past seven days, both gold and silver have turned negative again and could be headed back to their recent low points reached early in the day on Monday, November 30th.

Our proprietary cycle indicator is DOWN, but appears to be bottoming. Gold sector remains on long-term BUY at the end of November. Gold prices have found support at the 200eam.

The gold miners’ stocks are finally perking up again, after spending months slogging through a grinding correction.  Contrarian traders are taking notice, starting to redeploy capital in this high-potential sector.  Gold miners’ earnings and thus stock prices are...

In November, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their mRNA-based vaccine candidate, BNT162b2, had demonstrated evidence of an efficacy rate above 90% against COVID-19, in the first interim efficacy analysis. As Dr. Albert Bourla, Pfizer Chairman and CEO, said:

The gold futures contract lost 0.06% on Thursday, as it fluctuated following Wednesday’s decline of almost 2%. Last week the market has reached a new low after breaking below local lows along the price level of $1,850. Four weeks ago gold sold off 5% in one day...

After an extraordinary rally, gold recently entered an anticipated correction phase, which both math and history suggest is about to re-enter a continued trend dramatically upward. A primary driver for such sustained precious metal strength is an historically...

Markets are in for a very wild ride as Covid continues to be front and center and the stock market is still holding up in spite of the threat. There is an attempt at the Santa Rally, we will see if it succeeds. Nonetheless, renewed investor interest will keep things...

December 10, 2020

The final weeks of the tumultuous year that has been 2020 present opportunities for investors to get their financial houses in order ahead of the New Year. Nobody knows what 2021 will bring. But new political risks are likely to emerge – including the threats of...
