Silver continues to keep bouncing off of $18. Don’t think it’s a coincidence – the market is sending you a clear message. Every time the amateur traders panic-sell their silver, there’s big institutional money coming in to buy it at a discount.
The FTX crypto implosion is a potential black swan event where contagion may impact the financial industry and individual investors in unexpected ways.
Red wave or no wave at all, the race in the Senate is too close to call. We knew it would be a nail-biter, but hardly anyone expected a literal tie in the U.S. Senate. Now, the financial markets are struggling just to make sense of it all, not to mention achieve price discovery in stocks.
Everybody and his uncle is pronouncing judgment on FTX, though it’s easy to pile on the cryptocurrency exchange after it’s already circling the drain. The core question here, really, isn’t whether there will be anything left of FTX after the dust settles, but whether anyone has actually learned anything from this.
Gundlach: “Housing prices are doomed and the economy could lose several million jobs… refinancing industry completely dead.”
When it’s time to buy, you won’t want to. This is precisely what makes successful long-term investors so difficult for so many people. Catching the bottom of a bear market is among the hardest things to do, and it’s not due to a lack of research and technical tools.
Friday’s rally was explosive in paper gold and silver, but don’t get too excited because they’re not decisively out of the woods.
It was a quick bump and then a precipitous dump after the FOMC meeting as financial traders combed through Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s heavy words. The official FOMC statement offered a glimmer of hope, but Powell had his “Volcker moment” and threw cold water on any near-term pause or pivot hopes.
What kinds of feelings do you get when a major market-moving event is approaching? Fear, anxiety, loathing? It’s normal and natural to have these feelings, but they won’t benefit you as a long-term investor in great businesses.
It’s the economy, stupid. 8 out of 10 Americans say things are out of control as Europe protests and deindustrialization is silence before the storm.
Unfortunately for some beginner investors, a counter-trend bear market rally can look and feel a lot like the start of a new secular bull market. It might be tempting to get drawn into a trade that feels good and seems to make perfect sense as the stock market jolts upward for a short time.
U.S. east coast has begun fuel rationing as shortages cause higher heating & transportation costs that adds more inflation pressure on households.
Let there be no mistakes or misconceptions: everything that politicians do is political, and there are no coincidences on Capitol Hill. The same is true of the White House, where the commander-in-chief is just now trying to fix the grave policy mistakes of the past two years.
Everyone says there’s a massive recession coming. It’s stated over and over in the financial headlines; even your Uber driver said it’s going to be a bloodbath. When the prevailing sentiment leans so heavily to one side, you know exactly what to do – and it’s not what you want to do.
If orange juice is your favorite breakfast drink, I suggest you get to the grocery store asap and stock up on frozen concentrate.
More and more, the markets are looking for a sign – any sign at all – that the Federal Reserve is ready to back off of its aggressive course of interest rate hikes. Investors are so desperate that they’ll interpret just about anything the Fed says, or even what they didn’t say, as a green light to start buying equities again.
Portions of the river and its tributaries are at record low levels not seen in more than three decades that’s disrupting vital supply chains.
Bond yields and the dollar are up, and practically everything that’s not “risk-free” is down: stocks, precious metals, cryptocurrency, you name it.
