China Has a Bargaining Chip Against the US in the North Korea Crisis / Politics / China US Conflict

By: John_Mauldin

By Jacob L. Shapiro : Of all the parties involved in the Korean missile crisis, the most difficult to read is China.

China’s talks about the need for a peaceful resolution do little to reveal what China’s real interests and objectives are. And what they are is multiple and conflicting.

Boomers Are Not Saving Enough for Retirement, Neither Is the Government / Economics / Demographics

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : Wall Street endlessly gushes about retirement. Its TV commercials show how wonderful life will be in our golden years—when we are old, yet still healthy and wealthy enough to go hang-gliding every day.

Meanwhile, out here in the real world, most working-age Americans don’t want to talk or even think about retirement. Often this is because they know they aren't saving enough and probably will have to work until they drop dead.

Stock Market Trading Dow Theory / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Christopher_Quigley

In the last Market Brief on the 1st October I outlined that the markets were now back on “full bull”. Since then the Dow Industrials have risen 466 points. The main reason I felt confident expressing this opinion was that while the Dow 30 had not experienced  much of a pullback since mid-May (and therefore was very much “overbought”) the Dow Transports had corrected back  to its 200 Daily Moving Average but was beginning to show renewed technical strength. This indicated that the main trend, as defined by the Dow Theory system, had remained in full force.

Stocks Slightly Higher as They Set New Record Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly:
Intraday trade: Our Friday's intraday trading outlook was bearish. It proved partly wrong because the S&P 500 index gained just 0.1%, and the index continued to trade within relatively narrow short-term consolidation. The market may retrace some of its recent rally. Therefore, intraday short position is favored again. Stop-loss is at the level of 2,570 and potential profit target is at 2,530 (S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is bearish today. Our short-term outlook is neutral, and our medium-term outlook is neutral:

Intraday outlook (next 24 hours): bearish
Short-term outlook (next 1-2 weeks): neutral
Medium-term outlook (next 1-3 months): neutral

EURGBP failed in its attempt to break above 0.9045 resistance and pulled back from 0.9032. The subsequent fall extended to as low as 0.8855, breaking below an important support level at 0.8906 on the 4-hour chart, suggesting that the short term uptrend from 0.8746 is complete.

SCAREFEST 2017 - Take Care on Alton Towers Dangerous Rides! / ConsumerWatch / Theme Parks

By: N_Walayat

It's SCAREFEST October at Alton Towers again when Britain's most popular theme parks stays open LATE, well past nightfall. Just becareful on the rides especially in the dark because it is very easy to get injured if one lets ones guard down. For instance even going into a ride such as the HEX could prove dangerous. Of course not on par with the catastrophic failure of the Alton Towers SMILER ride a few years ago. But nevertheless injuries sustained can ruin the day and take several weeks to recover from as this video illustrates.

Janet Yellen's term is ending at the Federal Reserve. With new appointments, President Trump can indirectly shape US monetary policy for years to come - for better or worse. 

Serving as the “epitome of calm,” Fed chief Ben Bernanke responded to the global financial crisis by cutting the federal funds rate to zero and initiating rounds of quantitative easing (QE) soon thereafter.

Current Position of the Market

SPX Long term trend:  Continues to make new highs with no sign of a major top in sight.

SPX Intermediate trend:  A re-accumulation phase at the 2500 level has produced higher counts which should provide higher prices before a reversal takes place.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done on a daily-basis with the help of hourly charts. It is an important adjunct to the analysis of daily and weekly charts which discuss longer market trends.

Really Bad Ideas - The Fed Should Have And Defend An Inflation Target / Economics / Inflation

By: John_Rubino

Central banks in general and the Fed in particular are struggling to understand a world in which they’ve thrown everything they have at the economy without generating “beneficial” inflation. Their confusion can be traced back to some profoundly false assumptions.

Some Thoughts And Assertions
An inflation target implies that modest inflation is actually a good thing. This is simply wrong. Inflation is a “stealth tax” through which governments confiscate a bit of savers’ wealth each year without admitting it. If explained honestly such a trick would be a political loser always and everywhere.

The Bullish Chartology for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to update you on some of the longer term gold charts we’ve been following which are still hanging in there from the bullish perspective. Keep in mind these are long term charts so changes come slowly.

Lets start by looking at the long term weekly chart for gold which shows its 2011 bear market downtrend channel we’ve been following for a long time now. Back in July of this year the price action broke out above the top rail and just recently the top rail was backtested from above and we are getting a bounce exactly where we needed to see a bounce.

And the cryptocurrency space as a sector is on the cusp of an all-time high as well, sitting at $177 billion, just shy of the $178 billion high hit six weeks ago.

During his visit to hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump shocked the bond market when he told Geraldo Rivera of Fox News that he was going to wipe out the island's bond debt. He said on October 3rd:

You know they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street. We're gonna have to wipe that out. That's gonna have to be -- you know, you can say goodbye to that. I don't know if it's Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave good-bye to that.

Gold And Silver – Think Prices Are Manipulated? Look In The Mirror! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Michael_Noonan

Almost everybody complains or laments how both gold and silver are being manipulated, and they are, going back at least to the 1920’s and 1930’s and not just recently.  Curiously, very few are even aware, let alone consciously complaining, about how manipulated their lives and those of everyone around them have been and continues to be.

It has been a few months since our last commentary.  We used to present one each week, but over the last several months, it makes less and less sense to provide one.  The lies by all governments and the media are too many and too constant, and too many people remain cluelessly content in their chosen ignorance to resist and force changes.

Every time in the past I posted a photo of me with a champagne bottle after bitcoin had hit a new all-time high, it “crashed”. Or, at least it went down quite a bit before quickly retaking new highs.

Not this time, though! Shortly after posting that bitcoin had surged through $5,000 yesterday it continued on to hit a high over $5,700.

Q4 Pivot View for Stocks and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Gary_Tanashian

Reference a post from August 11: Potential Pivots Upcoming for Stocks and Gold Stock Market Status

In the above-linked article we noted several legs that could be kicked out from under the S&P 500’s table in Q4 2017. The stock market blew right through one of them, which was a bearish (on average) seasonal trend for the 2nd half of September. No one indicator is a be all, end all. In sum, they define probabilities. But price is the ultimate arbiter and as of today, price says ‘still bullish’ (says Captain Obvious).
