Don’t Fight the Fed! Or the Rest of the World’...
On March 9, 2009, The Wall Street Journal’s Money and Investing section posed this ominous question: "How low can stocks go?" The stench of economic malaise was suffocating as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) rounded off its fourth straight week of losses, and the S&P 500 touched below 700 for the first time in 13 years. Goldman Sachs cautioned the S&P could fall to 400, while CNBC’s Jim Cramer was busily calculating the stock valuations of the DJIA components based on balance sheet cash

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

Bond Market Bear Creating Gold Bull
Gold is climbing as bond yields rise and the dollar falls, over speculation that China is pulling back on buying US Treasuries and Japan signals it is winding down its quantitative easing program. Meanwhile, US debt continues to grow after the Republicans under President Trump pushed a trillion dollars worth of tax cuts through the Senate, that the Congressional Budget Office thinks will add $1.7 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. The dollar, 10 year yields and golds price

Oil Market Update
The paradoxical technical situation for oil that we highlighted in the last update has continued – and has gotten even more extreme. In that update we concluded that oil’s very bullish volume indicators pointed to its continuing to advance, despite COT and Hedgers charts and sentiment indicators showing extremes that would normally call for a reversal to the downside, and that is what has happened. The reason? – Iran – it looked like the United States and Israel, and possibly client state Saudi

Forecast 2018 — What Could Go Wrong? 
Markets If you take your cues from Consensus Trance Central — the cable news networks, The New York Times, WashPost, and HuffPo — Trump is all that ails this foundering empire. Well, Trump and Russia, since the Golden Golem of Greatness is in league with Vladimir Putin to loot the world, or something like that. Since I believe that the financial system is at the heart of today’s meta-question (What Could Go Wrong?), it would be perhaps more to the point to ask: what has held this matrix of racke

Weapon of Mass Disruption

Created by the U.S. Government in the 1960s to build robust communications via computer networks, “Internet” as it was then called had no means of electronic mail, telephony or file sharing, which are the building blocks of today's world-wide web.

Ellsberg: U.S. Military Planned First Strike On Every City In Russia and China … and Gave Field Commanders Power to Push Button
Daniel Ellsberg – America’s most famous whistleblower, the former military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers which helped end the Vietnam war – has just published a book revealing that he was also one of the main nuclear war planners for the United States in the 1960s. Ellsberg said in an interview this morning that the U.S.  had plans for a first strike on every city in Russia and China … and that numerous field-level commanders had the power to start nuclear Armageddon: [Interviewer] So,

  Nietzsche, Trump, and the Political Left 
The German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, warned us back in the 19th century with his famous theme, the “Transvaluation of Values.” An ominous world dictatorship was coming where good would become evil, and evil good. Freedom would be thought of as slavery, and slavery would become freedom. He “boldly prophesied that power politics and vicious wars were in store for the future. What he sensed was an approaching period of nihilism, the seeds of which had already been sown.” [1] Ironically, eve

  Swamp-O-Rama
What America might want to know right now is: how come Hillary Clinton doesn’t have any legal problems? Why aren’t DOJ investigators examining the financial records of the Clinton Foundation? You would think somebody would want to find out how over $120 million of Russian “charitable donations” ended up on its ledgers around the time that Secretary of State HRC approved the Uranium One deal — compared to which, Bill Clinton’s $500,000 payment from a Russian bank for giving a speech around the sa

Thar She Blows!
I’m obliged to file this blog before Robert Mueller’s office releases the name of the first winner in the Russian Election Meddling tribunal indictment lottery. Most of the betting is on Paul Manafort, the Swamp-creature-fixer-lobbyist-grifter who spent his summer vacation of 2016 managing Donald Trump’s election campaign. Before that unfortunate summer internship, Manafort was just a shadier-than-average influence-peddler. It happened that many of his clients were bigshots in foreign lands — Mo

Russian central bank may boost gold trading on Moscow exchange
Elena Fabrichnaya Reuters Tuesday, October 10, 2017 MOSCOW -- Russia's central bank may start buying gold for its official reserves on the Moscow Exchange, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The Russian central bank is one of the world's largest holders of bullion and the switch would boost currently low turnover in gold trading on the Moscow Exchange, which launched a precious metals market only in 2013. The bank has been regularly buying gold as it wrestles with weaker oil price

Effective Market Management: Art and Science
By Gary TanashianFrom Saul Steinberg’s 1954 drawing ‘The Line’The notion that there is art involved in interpreting the economy and financial markets is probably heresy to many market participants and probably 99.9% of economists (that .1% guy being the one who’s excluded from the meetings and egghead social gatherings), whether they be right or left leaning (I always find it entertaining to hear right wing and left wing economists duke it out, as I did on NPR yesterday, coming to diametrically

Radical Appeal for More EU Stupidity
The rise of far-right and far-left parties across Europe is directly related to calls for “more Europe”. Yet, French president Emmanuel Macron makes a Radical Appeal for a More Powerful EU. Bold Actions Macron seeks “bold” actions. He wants an EU “military intervention force”, a common budget, carbon taxes, national conventions to discuss the future of Europe, trade prosecutors to enforce countries to stick with the rules, and a Franco-German cooperation treaty, Mercy!
