GBP/USD after UK Jobs Report
Earlier today, the latest UK jobs report showed that the unemployment rate dropped to the lowest since 1975, which pushed the British pound higher against the greenback. Despite this improvement, currency bulls didn’t manage to hold gained levels, which resulted in a pullback. How low could GBP/USD go in the coming days? EUR/USD Looking at the charts, we see that EUR/USD moved sharply lower and slipped below the previously-broken 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and the 112.8% Fibonacci extensi

Blame Gold
We have been talking about The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. July 23, 2017: The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. As you probably guessed from the three-word title, the book can be summarized in two words, which are: “blame gold.” This, as we have seen, is actually a relatively new notion, even if it enjoys some popularity today. The general consensus, which later (after 1950) became the Keynesian consensus, did not blame gold, or indeed, monetary policy in general, for the Great D

Bearish Factors and GBP/USD
On Tuesday, British pound move lower against the greenback, which resulted in an invalidation of the breakout above two important resistances. How did this negative development affect the technical picture of GBP/USD?

Devaluations of the 1930s Don't Justify Today's Funny Money Excess
Without question, the Great Depression was a time when the political consensus moved from a Classical “hard money” approach towards a Mercantilist “soft money” approach — leading, ultimately, to today’s “print until the pain goes away” reaction. Actually, this trend had started in the later 19th century, and was not fully expressed until the 1970s – an evolution stretching over a hundred years or more. But, the experience of the Great Depression period of the 1930s st

Gold Market in H1
A lot happened in the first half of the year. Among many important events, Trump was nominated as POTUS, the Fed hiked its interest rates twice and announced plan to unwind its massive balance sheet, and a few important elections were held in Europe, with Macron taking over French politics. How did gold perform in that interesting period? As one can see in the chart below, gold shined in the first half of 2017. The rally started at the end of December 2016, after the FOMC meeting at which intere

Fumbling and Bumbling
As part of our continuing investigations into the Interwar Period, we’ve been looking at a funny episode in 1937. June 18, 2017: The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937 October 2, 2017: The Interwar Period, 1914-1944 I think it has been productive to spend all this time on the 1930s. I feel like we are airing out a lot of past confusion and trauma. Of course, many people may not agree with my interpretations and conclusions. But, along the way, they might get the data and materials to come to their own
