    Oil prices good for US growth? Ah you mean like in 2008-9!

  • The Best Commodity Trade For 2015 - Oil Cash And Carry: Minimal Risk, Huge Potential [View article]
    Then again if the oil price is a harbinger for another Global Financial Crisis as it was in 2008 (is it different this time?) then more downside cannot be ruled out, and you will be sat on losses for a while, and you could buy at lower prices than today. I am not convinced oil can be isolated sufficiently from what is going on the global economy to make this call. It's also just a bit too darn clever not to have missed something.

    Below expectations but not a disaster. Gold up, stocks down?

  • How 2014 Could Be Like 1929 [View article]
    The DJIA 1928-9 comes down from around 380 to 200, that's where the 40% fall comes from... On the 2013-4 version it depends where you project the fall to land exactly but it could still be about 20% on this view. Still history does not repeat but rhyme so who knows?

  • The Gold Bull Market Is Over [View article]
    Come off it the money printing has not even started! This is just a correction in a long bear market (commodity bull markets are typically 14-17 years long). Just wait for QE3 and the soon to be scared to death ECB money printing. But this could be quite a rollercoaster - look at your own position in GLD, that is not a bear market view!

    A great buy when the stock market has bottomed out - but not until then.

  • Watching the S&P 500: Volatility Is Back [View article]
    This is 2008 all over again with high oil prices and a default situation. Then the market reached one bottom in October and the final one the next March. The pattern this year could well be very much the same,

  • Extreme Bearish Economic Expectations Hint of a Powerful Rally [View article]
    Vix is only at 21 so you can hardly say that fear is showing any sign of peaking. Indeed, the set-up is like June 2008 with high oil prices and a major default pending - it could be different this time but how often is that true

  • Why Mining Stocks Are Declining While Gold Is Challenging Record Highs [View article]
    Is it not simply that stocks are rather out of favor as an investment instrument while commodities and ETFs are in vogue. ETFs did not exist in the last precious metals boom and they have done much to attract the smaller (and bigger) investor with their low costs and ease of use. Stocks suffer from individual management decisions and mining is notorious for production problems. So we will most likely get a pop in physical prices far ahead of stocks

    The Comx position on silver is particularly interesting and very supportive of the bullish case

  • Long-Term Chart of S&P 500 [View article]
    Martin Armstrong's 8.6-year cycle has this Monday as a repeat of the 1929 and 1987 crash. His math has impressed many professionals over time, though not his ranting writing style.
