Here’s how to play silver’s seasonal trade  

Sometimes it feels like silver has become the forgotten metal, as goldcomes off its best year since 2010 and silver gained merely half as much in 2017. But there’s good reason to be bullish on silver at the start of the year.

Silver’s recent setup gives us reason to believe there is a seasonal trade afoot. Just take a look at what’s happened in years prior: If you’d bought silver on Jan. 5 and have held through Feb. 14, you’ve made money in 13 of the last 15 years.

America Is Going Broke… and Nobody Cares

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Last week, the plot did not so much thicken as congeal.

There’s no changing it now — the cameras are rolling… the costumes are on… and everyone knows his lines.

President Trump went further in becoming the first president independent of either major political party in American history.

After having sided with the Democrats on the debt ceiling, he went back to the swamp to resolve the “Dreamer” issue — the 800,000 children who arrived in the U.S. as undocumented migrants and were allowed to temporarily stay legally in the country.

Then, over the weekend, it was reported that the administration wanted to get back on the Paris climate change agreement bandwagon.

The White House denies it, but it’s now clear that Mr. Trump aims to be a whole lot less disruptive than he promised to be.

And now, with the floodgates open, the U.S. national debt has surged over $20 trillion.

This Is The Dollar’s Worst Year Since The Plaza Accord

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Entering 2017, the USD had been up four years running on a broad trade-weighted basis with 8.6% gains in 2014, 10.7% appreciation in 2015 and a more modest 3.0% move in 2016.

That last year was a less dramatic move, but from May 2nd lows to the 15+ year peak on January 7th, the buck was up almost 9.3% or 14.5% at an annual pace.

Unfortunately for greenback bulls, things have gone wildly off-script since.

Silver Market Update

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The long base pattern in silver continues with positive price / volume action of recent weeks suggesting that it is approaching completion. On its 10-year chart we can see the giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern that has formed in silver, which parallels the one in gold, but is downsloping because silver tends to underperform gold at the end of bearmarkets and early in bullmarkets. The volume buildup of recent months is bullish, especially as it has driven volume indicators sharply higher, with the On-balance Volume line having rather incredibly made new highs this year, which is viewed as a very bullish omen.

Home » Market Analysis » Get Totally Out of Stocks – Deflation Coming – Charles Nenner Get Totally Out of Stocks – Deflation Coming – Charles Nenner

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Charles Nenner, renowned financial and geopolitical analyst, has been saying for a few years that “there would be no market crash until the end of 2017,” and “if people were not positioned correctly, they could lose everything.” It’s nearing the end of 2017, and Nenner says, “I think we are there already. . . . We, personally, are totally out of stocks at this point.”

 

So, where is Nenner telling people to stash their cash? Nenner says, “Put your money in the bond market.  A new bull market in bonds is developing. . . . The people in the Fed are now in their 60’s or 70’s, and what they remember is inflation, inflation and inflation.  I think they are on the wrong side.  It’s very hard for them to turn around and say deflation, deflation and deflation as it is for most market people because they haven’t lived through deflation.  In the last 500 years of investing, deflation is the norm. . . . I think deflation is the problem, and I see hawkish comments from the Fed, and I don’t think they are going to raise interest rates. . . .We are going to have a deflationary crisis coming up.  . . . Interest rates will go lower because we are going into a recession and even a depression.”
