If they don’t learn, they will get burned. The advent of self-directed, app-driven retail trading has been a double-edged sword as it democratized investing but also brought unprepared participants into the fold. Now, they’re back in the meme-stock trade and they’re moving markets, for better or for worse.
Biden’s 20-year moratorium on underground mining of copper and critical metals in Minnesota’s BWCA is short-sighted, foolish, and unscientific.
There’s a major event looming, but it’s not what everybody thinks. This time around, what’s important is not the size of the interest rate hike that the Federal Reserve is about to impose, but what Chairman Jerome Powell says afterwards. In the February 1 FOMC...
Psychopathic democide might be eligible for forgiveness in rare circumstances, but blanket amnesty is not in the cards for crimes against humanity.
If 2022 was a test of patience, 2023 will be a test of new highs for precious metals. As longstanding resistance levels in gold and silver are shattered, media pundits will have to redraw the lines on their charts and short-sellers will scramble to cover their positions.
NATO’s proxy war in Ukraine is an unpredictable wildcard on this poker table that will impact the world economy more so than it already has.
Jeremy Grantham, co-founder and chief investment strategist at Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo & Co., is well-respected among the investing community. When he issues a warning, people listen – and just recently, Grantham signaled a stock-market decline that will be fairly mild at best, and painfully deep at worst.
This year’s World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, was supposed to be an opportunity for leaders of developed nations to address issues like inflation, supply-chain disruptions, and the growing wealth gap. At the same time, the pressing issue of overbearing sovereign debt remains largely unaddressed.
Investors and traders anticipate copper to be a top-performing commodity in 2023.
The long expected Russian winter offensive in Ukraine has begun today. Did you expect a breaking news flash on an idiot box or dumbphone?
When it traded between $16,000 and $17,000 for months on end, hardly anyone in the media wanted to talk about Bitcoin. Now that it broke above $23,000, suddenly the pundits and plenty of social media commentators are bullish on Bitcoin. Does this mean the train has already left the station, though?
Dare the woke and awakened to delve into depths of bioengineering evil and Deep State surveillance not imagined since Hitler left this planet.
It’s an easy platform for career politicians to stand on and pander to the crowds. Just call yourself the “green” candidate, the populist who will fight the evil oil companies and wean the world off of fossil fuels forever. This has surface-level appeal, but skeptical minds must dig deeper, ferret out the facts, and look for substance.
As goes January, so goes the year… or so they say, but just as economists were mostly dead wrong about 2022, their outlook for 2023 must be taken with a huge grain of salt. If last year should teach us anything, it’s that the markets will fool most people most of the time and that central bank policy can turn on a dime.
The environment is reminiscent of mid-2011 when the U.S. credit rating was downgraded for the first time in history and the gold bull rallied higher.
It’s not gold or silver’s value that fluctuates, what fluctuates is the perceived and imaginary value of all the useless pieces of fiat paper currency.
2022 was brutal for financial traders, but history shows that back-to-back negative years in the stock market are rare. So, will this year bring a relief rally or more pain? Either way, high inflation means cash is trash and undervalued stocks should perform comparatively well in the long run.
Sanctuary cities are complaining about the ‘onslaught’ of illegal migrants — will they force the Biden administration to do something?
With a 19.4% drawdown, the S&P 500 just had its worst year since the financial crisis of 2008. The NASDAQ fared even worse after a 33% decline, while the Dow Jones’ 9% dip seemed modest in comparison. Indeed, 2022 was a very bad year – or quite possibly, a terrific setup for 2023.
The Federal Reserve’s current monetary policy provides an attractive investment opportunity not seen since before the Great Financial Crisis.
Investors remain ambivalent as 2022 comes to an end, but one thing’s for sure: this wasn’t the year that anybody in the financial press expected. Next year is bound to have its own twists, turns, and surprises, but traders can get a leg up if they know where we are in the current long-term economic cycle.
