Euro-zone Crisis - The Soon To Erupt Euro Experiment / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Gordon_T_Long

THE EURO EXPERIMENT

It was always blatantly clear that an EU monetary union would inevitably require a political union to centralize decisions about tax and public spending. Without this occurring it was a misconceived and terrible blunder (that some of us argued it was when it was initially constructed) but it is turning out to be even worse than we originally perceived because of its underpinning Euro currency.

We are now witnessing that the EU experiment has become so damaging and divisive that public opinion will now never tolerate a political union. So not only was the cart put before the horse, but the horse will not now contemplate even following the cart at a distance!

ECB ‘Bazooka’ Extended – Will Buy EUR 60 Billion Per Month Until At Least December 2017 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2016

By: GoldCore

The ECB’s ‘Bazooka’ is back and ‘Super Mario’, the European Central Bank’s monetary magician did not disappoint QE addicted markets yesterday by extending ultra loose monetary policies and quantitative easing until at least December 2017.

The euro fell and gold rose 1.1% in euro terms from €1,090/oz to €1,102.85. Stocks globally moved higher, and European stocks look set for their best week since February, supported by the extended ECB currency printing and a calm, some would say complacent and irrationally exuberant, reaction to the Italian referendum.

The Attack on “Fake News” Is An Outright Campaign for Censorship of the Truth / Politics / Propaganda

By: Jeff_Berwick

The buzzword “fake news” has popped into the popular lexicon in recent weeks.

We’ve been using that term for years, though, when referring to the mainstream media.

While poll numbers show that about 9 out of 10 people don’t trust the information they get from the mainstream media, they likely still have no idea just how fake it all is.

Trump Debunks Notion of Russia Interfering in America’s Electoral Process / Politics / US Presidential Election 2016

By: Stephen_Lendman

Claiming it is utter nonsense. Not a shred of evidence suggests it. Irresponsibly blaming Moscow for hacking DNC emails or any other type interference in America’s electoral process reflects longstanding Russia bashing.

In response to being named Time magazine’s person of the year, Trump told the publication that accusing Russia is politically motivated. “I don’t believe it. I don’t believe they interfered,” he said, adding:

Hundreds of jihadists have already laid down their weapons and surrendered while a hardline corps of deadenders continue to fend off the  rapidly advancing army.

Morrisons Cheap £10 Battery Powered 200 LED Christmas Lights Review / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Anika_Walayat

Just how good are battery powered christmas lights as sold by Morrisons and many others? The obvious attraction is that there is no mains wiring involved so should be relatively easy to put up sets of lights all over the place.

This is a review of a string of 200 LED lights bought from Morrisons for just £10, though don't forget the cost of the batteries (£4), so total cost is £14 which Morrisons promises should last 60 days when on their 6 hour timer. Find out in our test if they at least last for the festive season or not and what do they actually look like in our comprehensive review.

ECB Chairman Mario Draghi’s announcement of bigger and better QE this morning should have surprised no one. The fact is that the eurozone is coming apart at the seams and the only tool left to delay the inevitable is easier money. As the following chart illustrates, the euro has been declining since 2008, with the descent accelerating lately.

However, one story that got lost in the Trump firestorm was the fact that it increasing looks like the Irish government will have to seriously contemplate leaving the EU should the terms of the British Brexit “divorce” be hard rather than soft.

Trump Could Fuel A Nuclear Energy Boom In 2017 / Commodities / Uranium

By: OilPrice_Com

With Trump at the helm, sentiment gives way to practicality in the energy industry. For the vast untapped potential of the nuclear energy industry and the uranium that feeds it, this could contribute to a market-disrupting revival that no longer bows to fear and the politics of economy.

While there have been some oversupply issues keeping uranium prices down, the bigger problem has been negative sentiment rather than real fundamentals, but the Trump presidency will see through that.

One Possible Outcome - Future demographic impact on the global economy

Developing or emerging nations are still growing in population, are at a much younger average age, and are eager to own more goods.  They do not yet have the long life span seen in advanced nations, and hence a larger proportion of their population remains as consuming spenders. Their spending patterns will promote the kind of consumer economic model that had existed in the more developed world of Europe and North America in the last century.  Accordingly, consumer spending of emerging nations can be projected to rise for decades.

Crude Oil and Gold, Silver Precious Metals Link / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Nadia_Simmons

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): Short positions (with a stop-loss order at $54.51 and initial downside target at $45.43) are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

On Tuesday, crude oil moved lower and lost 1.66% after data showed that OPEC production rose to about 34.2 million barrels per day in Nov, hitting another record high. In this environment, light crude slipped under $51 and approached the barrier of $50, and thus the short position that we had opened early during yesterday’s session were already profitable at its end. Will we see a drop below the key $50 level in the coming days?

With the U.S. presidential election now behind us, many investors feel they can finally breathe easy again after a nail-biting period of uncertainty since last year. The rally in the major equity market indices since Nov. 9 has been in large part a relief rally of sorts and has been broad-based. The sell-off in bonds has also been an indication of this collective relief.

Protectionist Trump Policies To Crash Dollar, Gold and Bitcoin to Soar / Stock-Markets / Protectionism

By: Jeff_Berwick

Many people seem to think Trump is going to “fix” the US by invoking the isolationist, nationalist, and oft failed economic policy of protectionism. But, as Ludwig von Mises put it in Nation, State and Economy, “From the purely economic point of view nothing speaks against free trade and everything against protectionism.” In other words, there is no economic argument in favor of protectionism. It is not a viable economic policy.

The Jaws of Life : The Most Hated Stocks Bull Market in History! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to update the INDU we’ve been following which continues the upside move since the night of the US elections. Keep in mind some of these consolidation patterns began to form back in 2015 which had nothing to do with the US elections. It’s the billions upon billions of shares that were traded which produced this breakout move that is now being recognized for what it is. Even at this stage of the breakout move, there will be many doubters who will never recognize what is actually taking place. It can be very difficult to think outside of the box when we are bombarded everyday on how bad things are and how bad things are going to get. There has to be the proverbial wall of worry in order to have a bull market. Once the bull market becomes mature then the wall of worry comes down, and everyone is invited to invest in the markets, which will be at the blow off phase like in 2000.

President-elect Donald Trump will soon have the opportunity to put his stamp on the Federal Reserve. And that is making the elite body of central bankers nervous.

On the campaign trail, Trump harangued Fed chair Janet Yellen for pumping up financial markets with cheap money – accusing the Obama appointee of being politically motivated.
