Gold Plunged but Didn’t Knuckle Under to the Hawkish Fed / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2022

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The FOMC set the stage for a March interest rate hike, which was an aggressive signal. Gold got it and fell – but hasn't capitulated yet.

The Battlecruiser Hawk is moving full steam ahead! The FOMC issued yesterday (January 26, 2022) its newest statement on monetary policy in which it strengthened its hawkish stance. First of all, the Fed admitted that it would start hiking interest rates “soon”:

With inflation well above 2 percent and a strong labor market, the Committee expects it will soon be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate.

M&As: Beware of This Major Sign of a Stock Market Top / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: EWI

Here's what often precedes "prolonged and devastating bear markets"

Inside the three publications that comprise Elliott Wave International's flagship Financial Forecast Service, Elliott Wave International recently documented the many expressions of "financial optimism." Things like crypto mania. Or meme stocks. Or just buying any stocks, all stocks, no matter if the companies that issued them are making money, losing it, or have yet to turn a profit.

And it's more than just the individual investors who are caught up in it. Among the other behaviors this widespread financial optimism leads to are corporate mergers and acquisitions.

STOCK MARKET WARNING ARK FUNDS GROWTH STOCKS 90% CRASH! / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The great valuation reset that I have been warning of for a good 6 months is taking place with a vengeance! As it's not a question of everyone waiting for the Fed act to raise rates because the market is already raising rates anyway and at their sharpest pace in over a year which punishes the high PE garbage growth stocks whilst rewarding low PE strong cash flow stocks.

Look at ARK GARBAGE STOCKS - NO EARNINGS, NO SALES, JUST SOME GARBAGE MANTRA of "DESRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY" THAT SPEWS OUT of CATHY WOOD from time to time! The only thing getting disrupted are the portfolios of all the poor souls who fell for her snake oil sales pitch!

Financial Stocks Sector ETF XLF $37.50 Continues To Present Opportunities / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Recent volatility in the US markets ahead of the Fed comments/actions have prompted a relatively big pullback in almost every sector. Many traders are concerned the Fed may take immediate action to raise rates. Yet, a small portion of traders believes the Fed may be trapped in a position to act more conservatively in addressing inflation going forward. I think the Fed will continue to talk firmly about potentially raising rates. The Fed is more interested in decreasing the assets on their balance sheet before they risk doing anything to disrupt support for the global markets.

Suppose my analysis of the Fed predicament is correct. In that case, the recent collapse of the US markets represents a fear-based emotional selloff of many sectors that may still represent a strong opportunity for a recovery rally in 2022. One of those sectors is the Financial sector – particularly XLF.

I wrote about this on January 7, 2022, in this article: FINANCIAL SECTOR STARTS TO RALLY TOWARDS THE $43.60 UPSIDE TARGET

Stock Market Rushing Headlong / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Monica_Kingsley

Glass half full call on S&P 500 yesterday was vindicated – this yet another reversal has the power to go on, and credit markets appear sniffing out the upcoming reprieve. While rates have justifiably risen, they have done so quite fast in Jan – time to calm down and reprice the excessively hawkish Fed fears. Even if it was just energy and financials that rose yesterday, the table is set for gains across many assets – just check the progress from yesterday‘s already optimistic upturn, or the already fine early view of yesterday‘s market internals.

VIX is calming down, Fed is unlikely to rock the boat too much – such were my yesterday‘s thoughts about:

(…) seeing a rebound on Wednesday‘s FOMC (I‘m leaning towards its message being positively received, and no rate hike now as that‘s apart from the Eastern Europe situation the other fear around).

The sizable open profits – whether in S&P 500 or crude oil – can keep on growing while gold slowly approaches $1,870 again (look for a good day today), and copper stabilizes above $4.50 to keep pushing higher even if not yet outperforming other commodities. More dry firepowder and fresh profits ahead anywhere I look – even cryptos are to enjoy the unfolding risk-on upswing.

The right way to play Climate Change Investing (not green energy stocks) / Companies / Climate Change

By: Submissions

By Justin Spittler : The climate change money continues to pour in…

Two weeks ago California Governor Gavin Newsom proposed a $37 billion budget to fight climate change.

The six-year plan is mostly focused on green transportation and cleaner energy.

And that’s just the latest news…

In November, Reuters reported that “banks, insurers, and investors with $130 trillion at their disposal pledged to put combating climate change at the center of their work.”

$130 trillion!

By Justin Spittler: Something incredible happened last year in the Philippines.

Everyday people were making up to $3,500/month… from playing a video game.

That might not sound like a lot of money to you and me. But you should understand something.

The typical Filipino makes around $878 per month.

And these people making thousands of dollars a month aren’t professional gamers. They’re not part of an esports team. And they don’t receive money from sponsors.

They’re simply playing Axie Infinity.

Quantum AI Stocks Investing Priority / Companies / Investing 2022

By: Nadeem_Walayat

From time to time I get asked by Patrons what stocks would I prioritise exposure to, so that there is no confusion my priority has stayed fairly constant for a good 5 years now as illustrated by the ordering of ny AI stocks portfolio where as far as I can recall Google has always remained primary, numero uno, and why through thick and thin, even if I thought armageddon was just around the corner, Google has remained a constant in my portfolio and represents the pinnacle of what one would deem to be a PERFECT STOCK. Google is PRIMARY, In fact one could just buy and hold Google and nothing else and likely beat the market!

Whilst all of the other stocks do jiggle around in their positions from time, however the primary AI stocks have remained fairly constant for some time. In fact digging into my article archives here is one of the earliest iterations of my AI stocks portfolio list dating back to October 2016 which has aged well noting that Apple had a stock split so that the un split price now would be about $700!

Is Everyone Going To Be Right About This Stocks Bear Market? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Avi_Gilburt

If I'm reading all these articles properly, it seems that we're approaching the end of the world as we know it. In fact, I'm reading expectations of 40%, 50% and even 80% market declines. While I did not receive my invitation to this party, it seems that almost everyone else has and they have chosen to attend.

But, is that how the market works?

When the market was hovering in the 4800SPX region, I reiterated to the members of ElliottWaveTrader.net my expectation that we will likely revisit the 4400SPX region before the market begins its next major rally phase. In fact, I even warned them that the certainty that a new bear market has begun will likely be ubiquitous by the time we strike 4400SPX.

Stock Market Glass Half Empty or Half Full? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Monica_Kingsley

Tough call as select S&P 500 sectors came back to life, but credit markets are a bit inconclusive. Some more selling today before seeing a rebound on Wednesday‘s FOMC (I‘m leaning towards its message being positively received, and no rate hike now as that‘s apart from the Eastern Europe situation the other fear around).

VIX looks to have topped yesterday, and coupled with the commodities and precious metals relative resilience (don‘t look at cryptos where I took sizable short profits in both Bitcoin and Ethereum yesterday), sends a signal of upcoming good couple of dozen points rebound in the S&P 500. Taking a correct view at the hightened, emotional market slide yesterday, is through the portfolio performance – as you can see via clicking the link, yesterday‘s setup needn‘t and shouldn‘t be anyone‘s make or break situation.

Stock Market Quoted As Saying 'The Reports Of My Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated' / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Avi_Gilburt

I have been writing for Seeking Alpha for over a decade now, and I have also been running a service for investors for over a decade as well. And, I think I have seen it all.

One of the things that still strikes me is the extent to which investors will go to cling to their market perspectives no matter how much you try to explain to them how their old perspectives are not accurate or how much you attempt to open their eyes to new perspectives. You can present as much evidence as you want, you can provide as many examples as you want, yet there will still be a huge number of readers who are unwilling to accept anything beyond their own views. There are truly a lot of closed minds out there who simply love the way their blinders fit upon their eyes.

The Synthetic Dividend Option To Generate Profits / Personal_Finance / Options & Warrants

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Many companies regularly distribute a portion of their profits in the form of a dividend to attract investors and incentivize them to remain long-term shareholders. But most companies, ETFs, and commodities don’t pay a dividend at all. When there’s no dividend, the only opportunity for income or a profit comes from a capital gain (or loss) from selling the position.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get regular payouts from “no dividend” investments? As a dividend, these payouts could be used for income. Or, if left invested, our cost-basis could be further reduced with every payout.

Stock Market Relief Rally, Maybe? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2022

By: Monica_Kingsley

S&P 500 closed below the 200-day moving average – unheard of. But similarly to the turn in credit markets on Wednesday, the bulls can surprise shortly as the differential between HYG and TLT with LQD is more pronounced now. The field is getting clear, the bulls can move – and shortly would whether or not we see the autumn lows tested next.

Now that my target of 4,400 has been reached (the journey to this support has been a more one-sided event than anticipated), 4,300 are next in the bears sight. The bearish voice and appetite is growing, which may call for a little caution in celebrating the downswings next. Relief rally is approaching, even if not immediately and visibly here yet. All I am waiting for, is a convincing turn in the credit markets, which we haven‘t seen yet.

The dollar is likely to waver in the medium-term, and that‘s what‘s helping the great and profitable moves in commodities, and reviving precious metals. Crypto short profits are likewise growing – the real question is when the tech slide would stop (getting closer), and how much would financials rebound as well. Not worried about energy – the oil dip would turn out a mere blip.

Why Gold’s Latest Rally Is Nothing to Get Excited About / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2022

By: P_Radomski_CFA

You don't have to be a fortune teller to predict some of the precious metals’ behavior in the market. Any incoming signs take the shape of a bear.

What a signal-rich week that was! At least if you’re interested in forecasting gold and predicting silver prices.

The USD Index rallied, but that was the least interesting of the important developments, as it had already reversed during the preceding week. So, the fact that the USD Index continued its medium-term uptrend last week is not that noteworthy.
