Market Report: Economies stalling
It wasn't meant to be like this: six years of global money-printing should have guaranteed economic recovery. Until very recently, there was hope that finally the medicine was having some effect; but in the last few weeks investors have become noticeably more cautious. Is it Ukraine, or is it the slow-down in China? Whatever the story the truth is revealed in the chart of recent US bond prices shown below. The Long Bond yield is leading the way downwards, having broken below the 3.5% level, and

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts - Quiet Trade On Options Expiration - Shamelessness
Today's stock market action was relatively quiet for an option expiration ahead of a three day weekend. The economic news this morning was better than expected. From the oligarchy is audacious department, the BP crisis manager was fined by the SEC for front running the Gulf Oil spill, selling all his family stock holding before the extent of the disaster was revealed. The US markets will be closed tomorrow for Good Friday. Have a pleasant weekend. See you Sunday evening.

Holter muses on China's silver scheme; Barron doubts new raid on gold ETFs
Market analyst Bill Holter, who writes for GATA Chairman Bill Murphy's LeMetropole Cafe and for the Miles Franklin coin and bullion dealer Internet site, speculates, as silver market analyst Ted Butler often has done, that China is the big short in silver. But more so Holter speculates that China is aggressively using its silver short position to yank the gold market down so that it might acquire more gold cheaply.

Another bloodless coup in Ukraine is underway. This time, it's in the Donetsk region.

Why Gold? 85% of Pension Funds Will Go Bust in 30 Years
I have not seen the scenarios run by Bridgewater Associates, but I do have respect for their name and their work.  I would like to know their assumptions. In an inflation, stocks may do quite well, as their inflated valuations keep pace with inflation. Bonds are likely to get obliterated. In a stagflation not so much.  The Fed and the Treasury would like a modest inflation to provide a controllable dilution of debts without opening the door to a debt jubilee for the hoi polloi.  The Fed serve

Gold Futures Halted Again On Latest Furious Slamdown
They are not even trying to hide the gold manipulation these days. You would think with the recent spotlight on gold price fixing and lawsuit filed in March, the manipulators would at least retreat into the shadows for a few months. But this is not the case, as they chose tax day for the largest slam down of 2014. This action is clearly not-for-profit selling, which can only be interpreted as price manipulation. The regulators are bought off and/or appointed by the banks that are doing the manip

This smashed gold futures down over $12 instantaneously, breaking below the 200-day moving averaged and triggering the futures exchange to halt

Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys 
There's been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market -- and the economy as a whole -- isn't the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to

Another Phony Budget Debate 
Anyone watching last week's debate over the Republican budget resolution would have experienced déjà vu, as the debate bore a depressing similarity to those of previous years. Once again, the Republicans claimed their budget would cut spending in a responsible manner, while Democratic opponents claimed the plan's spending cuts would shred the safety net and leave vital programs unfunded. Of course, neither claim is true. The budget does not cut spending at all, and in fact actually inc
