Stock Market Trends Fortecast 2021 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Last year, I published a ‘What To Expect In 2020’ article that everyone seemed to enjoy.  We published this article to help investors and traders prepare for what we believed was going to be an incredibly volatile 2020.  Last year our conclusions was:

“Be prepared for a surprising spike in volatility in early 2020 with a moderately strong potential for an early 2020 downside price rotation which prompts a new price trend and possibly an early test of support (near 280 on the SPY chart).  2020 is going to be a fantastic year for skilled traders – get ready for some incredible price action. “

Our proprietary Adaptive Dynamic Learning (ADL) price modeling system has been calling big and unusual market price trends many months in advance over the past 3+ years.  Some of the biggest trends the ADL predicted very accurately was the 2017~2018 rally in Gold and the 2019 collapse in Crude Oil.

Bitcoin Rally Similarities – Is This The Peak? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The recent rally in Bitcoin is strangely similar to the rally that took place in 2017.  Although the range of price throughout the rally is somewhat different, the structure of price throughout the rally phase is very similar.  Our researchers believe this similarity suggests a peak may be forming in Bitcoin and the big volume on Monday, December 21, 2020, may have represented a “blow-off peak” in price.

Bitcoin 2017 Peak Structure

The following Weekly Bitcoin chart highlights the three rally phases that took place before the peak level was reached in December 2017. Pay very close attention to the structure you are seeing on this chart and the highlights we’ve made to help you understand how the price structure is being mirrored in the current rally phase.

Beginners Guide To Google AdWords - The Agents of Change / Companies / Google

By: Sumeet_Manhas

Seeking online approvals can be the most challenging course that any brand has to follow during its initial years. And that's why digital media marketing services extend several assisting tools for brands to gain online recognition and new business. One popular channel is Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords). However, there has been some debate around how Google Ads doesn’t always generate a strong ROI, and hence there is absolutely no point in getting involved as it will zap your budget. But you should know the problem generally doesn’t lie with Google Ads itself, but more with the campaign strategy employed.

AI Tech Stocks Buying Levels and EC Indicator Explained / Companies / Investing 2020

By: Nadeem_Walayat

My last look at AI stocks buying levels early September had some of the must own AI stocks trading at ridiculously high valuations for instance Amazon was trading on an EC of 148 against a target maximum of 100! Which prompted me to HIT the SELL button on over 50% of my holdings despite the promise of huge gains in revenues as the pandemic sales and profits came in.

Gold and Silver Precious Metals Yellow Flag / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Rambus_Chartology

Most of the time during a bull market the short, intermediate and long term charts are pretty much in sync even during a consolidation phase. Consolidation patterns are needed to bring the overbought condition back to what is normal for a bull market. Consolidation patterns are notorious for wild swings both up and down to shakeout as many investors as possible before the next impulse move can begin again.

What you don’t want to see is a topping pattern such as a double top or H&S top as they are reversal patterns. It is normal to see SMALL double tops – bottoms or H&S reversal patterns at the reversal points in a big consolidation pattern, but you don’t want to see a big H&S top as a stand alone pattern especially after a strong impulse move.

Let’s start with the daily combo chart for the PM complex which shows the potential H&S bottom forming at the last reversal point in the August trading range. To be honest I don’t like today’s price action on this daily PM combo chart even though GLD, SLV, GDXJ, XGD.to and SIL are still holding support on the backtest to their necklines today. The other PM stock indexes have broken down below their respective necklines which is a warning sign the potential H&S bottoms may be failing. So far I view today’s price action as a yellow flag or warning sign to watch this area very closely.

Global Tipping Point: "Good" Debt Vs. "Bad" Debt (Which is Winning?) / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2020

By: EWI

All major U.S. economic depressions were "set off" by this single factor

Isn't all debt "bad"?

Well, in a word, no.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of debt. One of them actually adds value to the economy if handled in the right way, so you might call this a "good" form of debt. However, there's another type of debt (or credit) which hurts the economy.

Can Gold Price Shine Again With Dovish Powell? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Fed Chair Jerome Powell sounded dovish during his press conference on December 16, where he gave a market update after the Fed’s monetary policy meeting. The Fed will remain accommodative for a long time, which should support gold prices.

Last week was full of important events. First, both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines received emergency-use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration . In consequence, the first COVID-19 vaccination in the United States has already taken place, which is great news for America, as it marks the beginning of the end of the pandemic.

Tackling US Infrastructure and Unemployment Crises: The “American System” Solution / Economics / Government Spending

By: Ellen_Brown

A self-funding national infrastructure bank modeled on the “American System” of Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt would help solve not one but two of the country’s biggest problems.

Millions of Americans have joined the ranks of the unemployed, and government relief checks and savings are running out; meanwhile, the country still needs trillions of dollars in infrastructure. Putting the unemployed to work on those infrastructure projects seems an obvious solution, especially given that the $600 or $700 stimulus checks Congress is planning on issuing will do little to address the growing crisis. Various plans for solving the infrastructure crisis involving public-private partnerships have been proposed, but they’ll invariably result in private investors reaping the profits while the public bears the costs and liabilities. We have relied for too long on private, often global, capital, while the Chinese run circles around us building infrastructure with credit simply created on the books of their government-owned banks.

Seeing Stock Market New Highs Through the Prism of AI / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock markets are soaring on the back of vaccines that herald the end game to the Covid nightmare that as I speak is hitting new highs in the US and fast worsening second peaks across Europe. However, much as was for the March crash, the vaccines, covid-19 are all mere blips in the long-term trend trajectory that is being driven by AI and it's full spectrum application. For instance these are the key areas that I identified to focus upon some 5 years ago, though the number is always expanding as AI encroaches on every aspect of our lives which is why my focus is on core AI itself rather than derivatives of AI.

Gold and Miners Are Not in Santa's Bag / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2020

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Do you feel the Christmas spirit when it comes to the yellow metal and miners? Because we don’t. Multiple signs over the past few days point to bearish weeks ahead for gold and the gold miners. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) - the most liquid vehicle for investors and traders to gain exposure to gold mining companies – is indicating that things are only about to go downhill from here and a lack of action from options traders only serves to confirm that.

Despite rallying by 8.7% over a three-day stretch, the GDX traded sharply lower on Friday (Dec. 18), and yet again, failed to recapture its 50-day moving average (unlike gold). Moreover, GDX also closed below its early-December intraday high, while the GLD ETF remained above its analogous price level.

Will President Biden Trigger Inflation for Gold? / Commodities / Global Debt Crisis 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

President-elect Joe Biden is expected to increase further government spending. For this and also other reasons, there is a risk that inflation under Biden’s presidency could be higher than under Trump’s. That would be great news for gold.
Let’s face it, Biden won’t have an easy presidency. And I’m not referring to the fact that he will be sworn in as the oldest president in U.S. history or that he will have to deal with the coronavirus pandemic and the process of vaccine distribution across the country. I’m referring to Biden inheriting an economy with slow growth and too much public debt . Given the debt burden, it should be clear that under Biden’s presidency, real interest rates will remain at ultra-low levels. This is how a debt trap works – the more the debt grows, the less the economy (Treasury) can afford higher interest rates .
Moreover, Biden will have to face the risk of inflation . Actually, some analysts say that the new POTUS could contribute to the rise of prices. Is it true? Will we finally see an acceleration in the inflation rate? Read full article... Read full article...

Silver Price Launches Toward Major Technical Breakout / Commodities / Global Debt Crisis 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Precious metals markets are on the move this week.

They got a boost following Wednesday’s Federal Reserve policy statement. Fed officials kept their benchmark interest rate near zero and vowed to continue injecting $120 billion per month into the bond market.

The central bank seemed unconcerned about bubble-like conditions in equity markets. Nothing seems likely to deter it from pursuing more stimulus for the foreseeable future.

The ultra-dovish Fed helped nudge the U.S. Dollar Index down. It broke below 90 on Thursday to record a new low for the year.

Nvidia’s Chips Have Powered Nearly Every Major AI Breakthrough / Companies / AI

By: Stephen_McBride

 “Within 20 years, machines will be capable of doing anything man can do.”

Take a stab at when this quote is from. It wasn’t this year,  2010, or even during the ‘90s tech boom. It’s from one of America’s top computer scientists: in 1960.

You’ve surely heard about Artificial Intelligence (AI) before. “AI” often conjures up images of intelligent robots taking over the world. You’ll often read that it’s only a matter of time before AI steals all our jobs.

But the idea of humanoid machines is nothing new. It began with the “heartless” Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. By the 1950s, a generation of scientists and engineers were convinced we’d soon co-exist with clever robots.

US Fed Recommits to Misleading the Public About Inflation / Economics / Inflation

By: MoneyMetals

Did the Federal Reserve just usher in the next phase of the U.S. dollar’s decline?

On Wednesday, the central bank recommitted to leaving its benchmark interest rate near zero for the foreseeable future.

Fed officials also vowed to keep pumping cash into financial markets.

Following Fed chairman Jerome Powell’s remarks, the wavering U.S. Dollar Index turned down – hitting a fresh new low for the year. Gold gained modestly on the day while silver got a bigger boost to close solidly above $25/oz, promptly heading to $26/oz the day following.

Precious metals markets have been basing out over the past several weeks. They are struggling to attract safe-haven demand amid record runs in stocks and Bitcoin.
