Global Gold Investment Demand To Overwhelm Supply

When the next market crash occurs, global gold investment demand will likely overwhelm supply. When this occurs, we could finally see the gold price surpass its previous high of $ 1,900. Now, this isn’t mere speculation, as we already have seen this taking place in the past. When the broader markets crashed to the lows in Q1 2009 and the 10% correction in Q1 in 2016, these periods were to two highest quarters of Gold ETF investment demand. I don’t really care on whether the physical gold is actually in the Gold ETF’s, rather I like to look at it […]

The Yield Curve Has Not Been This Flat In 10 Years, And Many Believe This Is A Sign That A Recession Is Imminent

Whenever we see an inverted yield curve, a recession almost always follows, and that is why many analysts are deeply concerned that the yield curve is currently the flattest that it has been in about a decade.  In other words, according to one of the most reliable indicators that we have, we are closer to another recession than we have been at any point since the last financial crisis.  And when you combine this with all of the other indicators that are screaming that a new crisis is on the horizon, a very troubling picture emerges.  Hopefully this will turn […]

Obamacare Rage: One Family Of 4 In Virginia Is Faced With Paying $3,000 A Month For Health Insurance

Could you afford to pay $ 3000 a month for health insurance?  Previously, Ian Dixon had been paying $ 900 a month for health insurance for his family of four, but thanks to changes in the Charlottesville insurance market, a similar plan will now cost him more than $ 3,000 a month.  When I first came across this story on Zero Hedge, I have to admit that I got angry.  I was angry at the Democrats for destroying our healthcare system in the first place, and I was angry at Republicans for failing to repeal Obamacare even though they have […]

You Have to Follow the Money

John Del Vecchio really is a nice guy, I promise. But he doesn’t smile a lot. Maybe it’s because he grew up in upstate New York, where you can go weeks in winter without seeing the sun… or maybe it comes from the years he spent working as a forensic accountant and as a professional short seller. But John definitely has a serious, no-nonsense demeanor about him. And let me tell you from experience, you don’t want to be on the opposite side of a trade as him. This seems almost ridiculous now, given the company’s dismal performance, but many […]

Please Contribute To The 2017 Michael Snyder For Congress Money Bomb

Wouldn’t it be great if Congress was absolutely packed with strong constitutional conservatives that consistently fought for true conservative values?  It has been said that our government is a reflection of who we are as a people, and the only way that we are going to take our government back is if we fight for it.  I have talked to so many conservatives that are sick and tired of being betrayed by “Republicans in name only” over and over again, but the only way that we are going to break this cycle is if good people start running and if […]

Is GE A “Black Swan” In Plain Sight?

GE hit $ 8 in 2008. If you short the stock with some patience, in my opinion it’s a low-risk bet that it will drop at least 50% over the next 12-18 months. – From the January 29, 2017 Short Seller’s Journal with GE stock at $ 30 At the end of January, with the stock at $ 30, I presented GE as a “boring and conservative” short-sell idea. The chart technicals suggested that smart money was dumping their shares. Through today, shorting GE stock when I presented the idea has returned 41.6%. I’m sure Bitcoin bandwagon bubble-chasers would sneer […]

Silicon Valley Exec Has Created A New Religion That Will Worship A ‘Godhead’ Based On Artificial Intelligence

I know that the headline sounds absolutely crazy, but this is actually a true story.  A Silicon Valley executive named Anthony Levandowski has already filed paperwork with the IRS for the nonprofit corporation that is going to run this new religion.  Officially, this new faith will be known as “Way Of The Future”, and you can visit the official website right here.  Of course nutjobs are creating “new religions” all the time, but in this case Levandowski is a very highly respected tech executive, and his new religion is even getting coverage from Wired magazine… The new religion of artificial […]

A Bullish Big Picture With Growing Near-Term Headwinds

There’s some growing signs of weakness in this market. Breadth is slipping, credit doesn’t look too great, there’s more new lows versus new highs being made… that kind of stuff. I’m still not getting any major sell signals, except from my high-yield indicator. It flashed a signal today. But there’s word the recent weakness in junk may be due to concerns over how deductions for debt and interest payments will be treated in the Republican tax reform plan. I don’t know. Either way, I’m not seeing any major red flags outside of junk bonds just yet. I’m in “wait and […]
