Epocalypse Ahead On Highway To Hell For Global Economy And US Stock Market

First I said I believed the US stock market would plunge in January, but I also said that January would not be the biggest drop, but just the first plunge that begins a global economic collapse: the big trouble for the economy and the stock market, I said, would show up in “early summer.” That’s when the stock market crash that […]

A Window Of Opportunity For Gold

Ever since breaking below the 30-week moving average in late 2016 gold and gold stocks have been in a sideways trading range unable to resume their uptrend.  Gold and gold stocks have had three things working against them during this time frame: weak commodity markets, strong stock markets, and digesting gains from 2016.

Trump Should Release SPR Oil Reserves On Monday

The speculators are at it again in the oil market, pushing up prices beyond the fundamentals.

The S&P closed with a bearish black candlestick on a spike high above the 50-day MA. Volume climbed in accumulation as On-Balance-Volume triggered a ‘buy’ signal.
