I knowGood morning.
The half day US markets are open the day after Thanksgiving is usually one of the quietest trading days of the year. 2021 delivered the worst one-day performance for stocks instead, as a new version of Covid out of South Africa, dubbed the “Nu” variant, appeared to be spreading.
While the market has had a selloff and sentiment has flipped from bullish to bearish overnight, we’ve learned from the Delta variant that markets can be volatile, but will likely remain resilient.  Still, traders may want to lighted up on their most aggressive trades, even if that goes against what’s usually a seasonally strong time for the markets to move higher.

BlackFridayI think I’ve received over 100 emails already today offering BLACK FRIDAY SALES of one-sort-or-another.  As a good friend commented on Facebook … “Save 100%. Leave your wallet in your pocket.”

In the wake of a tumultuous few months for the Federal Reserve, the last thing the central bank can afford right now is to give any indication that they don’t have firm control over their policy.

But after the Federal funds rate broke wildly high in September, the Fed seems to have allowed the pendulum to swing too far in the other direction, with rates now moving dangerously low.  Have they lost control over their primary tool to implement their policy?

Big Banks Increasingly Bullish on Gold Prices … 😉

P.S.: “It means that — as far as the next week or two are concerned — the outlook for silver just became bullish.”

Good morning. Between inflation at 40-year highs and two quarters of negative GDP growth, investors in the US are dealing with some tough times.  But compared to the rest of the world, the US looks like one of the strongest places to invest now. Europe is likely in a recession, and its energy shortage due to Russian sanctions will only make it deeper.  In contrast, the US has the capacity to be energy independent.  The US is also food independent, at a time when grain shipments from Ukraine have finally started up again. Overall, investors can still be cautious.  But

Good morning. The stock market’s strong rally of the past few days has allowed it to retrace nearly half of its losses since the start of the year.  That could mark the end of the recent drop – or it could be simply a bear market rally before the longer-term downtrend picks up. Some clues point to further downside.  While the Fed didn’t raise interest rates more than expected last week, they continued to warn on inflation, which still runs hot.  And a number of central bankers have warned that the Fed isn’t ready to pivot yet on its current

Good morning. Last week saw a strong rally for the market, with the best-performing week for stocks since 2020.  That’s in spite of data indicating the economy continues to contract.  As we get into August, however, that rally should cool. On a technical basis, the market has now had a strong rally.  But it also fits the pattern of a bear market rally.  And until the Fed stops raising interest rates, we likely won’t see a sustained rally higher – aka, the so-called “pivot” that will signal a true change in the market’s long-term trajectory. All told, that points to

Today! July 30, 2021 Good morning. The first half of the year saw endless stories about the impact of rising lumber prices.  From adding thousands to the cost of a new home, as well as showcasing supply chain issues in the timber industry, prices have heavily pulled back from their peak but are well above their levels a year ago. Well, there’s a new commodity making big moves higher: Coffee.  A combination of robust demand, and the potential supply shock from frost in Brazil have caused coffee prices to jump over 30 percent in the past two months.  While this

Good morning. Three months ago, when the first-quarter 2022 GDP numbers showed an unexpected drop, we went ahead and called it a recession.  That’s now official (at least by the government’s definition), now that there’s been a second quarterly decline in a row. While some are saying it’s not really a recession… or only a technical recession… things certainly don’t look bad with a -0.9 percent drop.  It’s not as steep as in the first quarter, after all.  But nothing moves in a straight line. Interest rates are now at their highest levels since 2019, when the Fed stopped raising

Good morning. After being told that inflation was transitory for a year, we’re now being told that negative GDP growth for two quarters in a row isn’t a recession.  In the meantime, the Fed continues to raise interest rates aggressively, with another rate hike yesterday. This fast pace of rate increases only makes it more likely that we’ll avoid what the Fed calls a “soft landing” – where we somehow avoid a recession, or just have a mild one, while inflation dissipates from 40-year highs. It’s clear that we still have some turbulence in store for the markets, and that
