2021 Olympics in JapanGood morning.
When it comes to investing, it can pay to look where investors aren’t.  A few months back, all eyes were on 10-year bond yields.  In the past few weeks, those yields have been steady, even dropping somewhat.  That’s a bullish sign, and one that’s critical amidst inflation fears.
Another piece of data to consider?  The ratio between the stock market and the price of gold.  Gold prices may be on the rise again relative to stocks.  That can occur in bullish markets, like those of the early 2000s.  Markets may not trend significantly higher, but signs point away from a big drop in the next few weeks.  And what they do point to is a possible push higher for gold.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

“Heads, Gold Wins; Tails, Gold Doesn’t Lose” –Jim Rickards
Daily Reckoning contributor Jim Rickards analyzes gold’s recent history and concludes that, if we don’t understand gold’s price, then we’re asking the wrong questions.  Here’s why Rickards things buying gold is a no-lose proposition… [Read Here]

Saving Millions Isn't EnoughGood morning.
It’s a shortened week for the equity markets and it will be somewhat of a proving ground for the burgeoning bull market.  The old axiom of “sell in May and go away” has frequently proven timely especially given the significant rally we’ve had since the March lows.
However, with Fed stimulus dialed up, will the possibility of reopening and easy money be too tempting for the bulls to keep it going?

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Why Silver Has Never Been a Better Deal Than It Is Today!

Gold is the extrovert at a party.  It takes the spotlight at cocktail gatherings.  It’s the star in the precious metals market most of the time.
This isn’t a bad thing… But when gold hogs the spotlight, people tend to forget about silver entirely.
That’s exactly what’s happening right now.  Investors have driven gold prices through the roof.  Meanwhile, silver hasn’t seen the same explosive rally.  Check it out…

Gold vs Silver

Silver prices are down 3% this year, while gold prices are up 14%.  And in recent weeks, we’ve seen the widest value gap between the metals of all time.
Simply put, silver has never been a better deal, relative to gold, than it is today.  The ratio of the two metals broke out to all-time highs in April.

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
