“Government Sachs” Is Worried About the Federal Reserve Note / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

 

As July comes to a close, gold is up better than 9% for the month and has advanced nearly 30% for the year.

Gold’s record-setting rise has been driven by Federal Reserve stimulus, dollar weakness, and strong safe-haven investment demand. Even the Wall Street-centric financial media is taking note:

Financial News Anchor #1: Gold is shining once again, this morning. The spot price is touching all-time highs, as the dollar index sits around a two-year low.

Financial News Anchor #2: Those gold prices have hit an all-time high. The spot price of gold reaching a record.

Gold traditionally surges in times of turmoil. In this case, the economic impact of the pandemic, and those US/China tensions. They are sending investors to this safe haven. But the Federal Reserve's monetary easing measures, they also have a part to play in the price of gold.

Gold Miners Still Pushing That Cart of Rocks Up Hill / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2020

By: Gary_Tanashian

Our hard working miner here (we’ll call him Huey) has been pushing his cart of rocks, first gently downhill from 2016 to 2018 and then uphill to a bull market since May 2019.

As tracked in NFTRH, in 2019 the macro backdrop became positive for the gold stock sector as gold entered a bull market by taking out the 1378 level and its ratios to stock markets began to rise. Gold/SPX is among the most important macro indicators to a bullish gold mining case as a gold price rising in terms of stocks is the key factor in drawing larger investment (e.g. institutions) to the sector.

UK Government to Cancel Christmas - Crazy Covid Eid 2020! / Politics / Pandemic

By: Anika_Walayat

Apparenrtly for many British muslims Eid was cancelled due to the governments incompetent handling of the chinese virus that has seen over 65,000 deaths instead of less than 500 as there should have been if the UK had followed the South Korea model.

So ee are living in crazy times when a government minister can shut down whole areas of the nation by tweet, as was the case ahead of the Eid festivities across the Manchester area of the UK totaling some 4 million people which is a population about the size of Scotland!

So what does one do during crazy times for Eid? Have a crazy Eid slime party!

Covid-19 Exposes NHS Institutional Racism Against Black and Asian Staff and Patients / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Why are black and asians more than twice as likely to die from covid-19 than white patients?

Answer the NHS like much of British society is institutionally racist. This IS the routine experience of staff and patients.

Therefore blacks and asians are warned to avoid NHS Hospitals due to institutional racism, where white staff are more likely to call the police on patients than to treat them as this report by Channel 4 news illustrates where staff call the police to drag an asian father away from his dying 6 year old daughters death bed.

How Sony Is Fueling the Computer Vision Boom / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Stephen_McBride

He didn’t know it at the time, but in 1990 Eric Fossum started a revolution. In the early ‘90s, NASA was firing rockets into orbit every other month. And to take images of outer space, each spacecraft was equipped with cameras.

The problem was, these cameras were absolutely huge—roughly as big as a double-door fridge. Cameras used on spacecraft are similar to digital cameras, except they have to be a lot tougher. And they required tons of heavy wiring to work.

So NASA hired hotshot engineer Eric Fossum straight from Yale, and tasked him with miniaturizing NASA’s cameras. Within two years, Fossum created a “camera-on-a-chip”—a new type of image sensor that was smaller and consumed 100X less power.

Image sensors are tiny computer chips that essentially give cameras a set of “eyes.” They process light from the outside world and transform it into a bunch of 1s and 0s, allowing cameras to render images. Fossum’s “camera-on-a-chip” helped NASA slash the size of its cameras. But more important, his invention laid the groundwork for digital cameras and camera phones.

Corona Crisis Will Have Lasting Impact on Gold Market / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

No matter what shape the recovery is, the epidemic will likely have lasting, positive effects on the gold market.

During the most acute phase of the pandemic and the following economic crisis, there was no time to analyze various WGC’s reports on the gold market. Let’s make up for it!

I’ll start with the report “Recovery paths and impact on performance” about the gold mid-year outlook 2020. The World Gold Council notes that gold had a really excellent performance in the first half of 2020, rising almost by 17 percent (see the chart below), much higher than other major asset classes.

Precious Metals Warn Of Increased Volatility Ahead / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our trading team witnessed a big drop in Platinum and Palladium prices early this morning while Gold and Silver continued to push moderately higher.  We began to question this move and investigate any historical relevance to previous patterns.  Our research team pointed out that both Platinum and Palladium rolled lower just 3 to 4 days before the breakdown in the US stock markets on February 24, 2020, while Gold and Silver were reaching recent price peaks.  Could the patterns in precious metals be a warning of another potential volatility spike and price decline in the near future?

The Key USDX Sign for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Yesterday’s session was indeed volatile around the FOMC, just like we warned, and gold even moved to its previous high, likely forming a double-top pattern. Even though gold moved higher on an intraday basis, it didn’t invalidate its previous breakdown, which was a bearish sign. Gold was likely to decline, and it is declining so far in today’s pre-market trading.

Gold & Silver: Two Pictures / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Jim_Willie_CB

It is said that a picture is worth 1000 words, and thus two pictures are worth 2000 words. The entire financial system is fracturing and imploding, no exaggeration. The entire monetary system is being undermined in a true Weimar sense, in reality. Such a situation almost never has come about without a world war. Since 2001 in the Jackass opinion, the world financial war has been in progress with the imposition of anti-terrorism statutes, with a seminal event in 2008 for the bond implosion. A certain signpost was flashing in 2012 with the installation of Quantitative Easing, better described as hyper-monetary inflation of the unsterilized type. When the REPO market exploded on the scene in September 2019, the death of the USDollar’s foundation was evident to all with vision. When the sequence of CARES stimulus bills was enacted, the assurance for Infinite QE Forever was clear. The time before total sunset on the global reserve currency was declared as near. The Global Financial RESET is officially in progress. A new age is soon to dawn. The role of the USDollar is unclear in future months, probably for black market activity and possibly a transition currency.

The Bullish Case for Stocks Isn't Over Yet / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Paul_Rejczak

The bulls didn't seize upon Monday's stock upswing, and prices declined in what might look as a good-bye kiss to the horizontal line connecting the early June highs. Are stocks about to roll over to the downside? Despite yesterday's deterioration in the credit markets, I think it's too early to jump to such a conclusion.

Technology is holding up, semiconductors aren't weakening relatively to the sector, and the rotation into healthcare, materials, and industrials is very much on. The defensives (utilities and consumer staples) are also improving their posture. Consumer discretionaries are firm, and financials are getting better relative to the index.

Yes, going into today's Fed and especially into Thursday's aftermarket with earnings from selected tech behemoths, the market is likely to move higher if yesterday's AMD results are any indication.

Will America Accept the World's Worst Pandemic Response Government? / Politics / Pandemic

By: Patrick_Watson

Even in normal times, the news describes murders, accidents, wars, natural disasters, and the passing of once-famous celebrities.

Those deaths are usually just headlines. We don’t know the people, and we don’t expect to share their fate anytime soon. We note them and move on.

Ignoring the death news isn’t so easy in a pandemic that could sicken and possibly kill any of us, at any time. Yet people manage to do it. Some think it’s all exaggerated or fake. But even those who see the threat often tune out the news. They’d rather not think about it—and understandably so.

The virus doesn’t care what people think. It will, if given opportunity, try to infect them. A small percentage of those infected will die. Will others care?

In the first part of this article, we discussed how our team evaluates a proper market perspective and how we build a consolidated narrative for our subscribers.  Some times, it is not easy for us to build a suitable narrative or decide on risk factors as our team may not completely agree with one another.  At times like this, we’ll often decide that no action is better than taking any action at all.  Generally, though, our team is able to adopt a consensus narrative related to portfolio allocation levels, general market trends and specific target trade setups for the next 5 to 10+ trading days.

Trump White House Accelerating Toward a US Dollar Crisis / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Dan_Steinbock

As US economy is heading toward its disastrous 2nd quarter results, the Trump administration is considering the expansion of the trade war to finance, which could destabilize the US dollar and derail the post-pandemic global economy.

After its failure in the COVID-19 containment and the expected -53 percent plunge of real GDP growth in the 2nd quarter, President Trump’s re-election campaign is in serious trouble. To deflect the blame, his administration has launched a series of provocative measures against China thereby fueling elevated bilateral tensions.

Worse, the White House is reportedly considering moving from a bilateral trade war to an effort to exclude China from the dollar-denominated international payment network. In Beijing, that would be seen as weaponization of US dollar.

Why US Commercial Real Estate is Set to Get Slammed / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: EWI

Commercial real estate investors are in an especially precarious position should another financial crisis unfold.

A July 18 Marketwatch article titled "The open secret in commercial real estate is that owners regularly take cash out of properties ..." says:

Borrowers, ahead of this [year's] downturn, pulled more equity out of U.S. commercial buildings than ever before. ...

Debt relief conversations already started in April ... between the hardest-hit commercial property borrowers and their lenders.

Since then, delinquent commercial mortgage-backed securities loans have climbed to nearly 10%, rivaling the worst levels of the global financial crisis [in 2007-2009].

Last week, I put out an article outlining my expectation for a pullback in GLD before we head to the 200+ region. Within the comments section, I outlined my plan as to how I am going to play for a potential pullback. However, that pullback has not yet materialized.

For those that have followed me closely for years, you know that I have been heavily long physical metals and mining stocks since I started accumulating them again in 2015, after calling the top in 2011.
