  • Gold's now in a clear downtrend, taking out new technical lows, hit by (3-month old) news big names are selling, and now the chart's starting to form the dreaded "death cross." All the gold bugs need for a perfect bullish setup would be Paul Krugman taking to the air to declare victory for all he believes ... check. GLD -1.7%[View news story]
    Milton Friedman??? LOL!

    I remember the Chicago Boys in Chile and how they destroyed the economy over there. They destroyed the lives of millions. He told Pinochet that if he pushed for deep austerity cuts and lowered tax rates Chile would regain economic growth. What happened was a surge in crime, rampant poverty like never before, children went hungry....it was a disaster.

    The Pension System of Chile was also raided by Milton and his cronies. They said: "ahora nos vamos a dar el banquete total".

  • Saudi Arabia cut its oil exports by 1.3% M/M in December to a 15-month low of 7.06M bpd, while Iraq reduced shipments by 10% to 2.35M bpd, the Joint Organizations Data Initiative says. However, Nigeria increased overseas sales by 14% to 2.29M bpd and Venezuela by 19% to 1.97M bpd, the most since July 2008. WTI -0.3%[View news story]
    Saudi Arabia is cutting exports because demand has been tepid recently. High oil prices are beneficial for the US.


    High oil prices are pushing a lot of innovation that is going off behind the curtains.

    Solar Energy breakthrough is coming.....

  • The NYT backs President Obama's call to increase the minimum wage, although it wants the figure raised further than Obama's "low-ball" proposal of $9/hour. "The argument that a higher wage will kill jobs has been debunked by a range of studies," while it also boosts productivity," the NYT writes. Over on Reuters, Reihan Salam calls the minimum wage "a poor solution," saying there are better, more targeted anti-poverty policies, such as tax credits. [View news story]

  • Large inflows into stock mutual funds continue, with the amount since the year's start now at $24.9B, according to Lipper, the strongest run since April 2000. Do ETF flows show even more of a move towards risk? The mighty SPY moves from first to last, losing $3B in AUM last week, while the Russell 2000 Index (IWM) and the Real Estate ETF (IYR) jumped to the top. [View news story]

  • Added to the reasons why Fed policies are counterproductive is companies spending billions to buck up their pension schemes thanks to barely visible interest rates. It's simple math - as rates fall, liabilities rise, and companies must add funds. Ford will spend $5B shoring up its pensions this year, about as much as spent building plants last year. [View news story]
    "just a storyline in the armegeddon that sets in"

    Oh man I was afraid of Y2K and I thought the world was going to end...

    Then it was the Solar Flares in 2003....

    Then it was the 2008 crisis, where everyone was going to be without a job...

    Then on December 21 it market the end of the world.....


    So now, when is the Armageddon set in, so I can panic again while the cunning make money?

  • "We told you so." Seriously? Barron's thumps its chest in the sort of self-congratulatory, bullish article that could give a fan of stocks pause. "If there's a great rotation going on from bonds to stocks, we may be only in the top of the first inning," says Jason Trennert. The 60/40 stocks/bonds mix is out of favor with many institutional investors, notably big college endowments, which now have 27% of assets in stocks vs. 45% a decade ago. [View news story]
    "missed out on buying last time markets went down"....

    That's the reason you are screaming of doom everywhere.....

    Just like every doomer here on SA, they missed the rally.

    Tack, there is one guy here that lost his home in 2008. He keeps ranting of a hyperinflation collapse.....LOL!

    These doomers missed one of the greatest rallies in our history. Is impossible for them to accept the US economy is recovering; it would show their incompetence administrating their finances.

    AMZN is the king of retail e-commerce, so it deserves a premium. That's all. Shorts should know this.

  • Market recap: The S&P extended its winning streak to eight on strong reports from P&G, Halliburton and others to close above 1500 for the first time since 2007, with the next stop the 1565 high. Not too hot, not too cold: Earnings have come in better than expected, and money seems to be moving into stocks without a stampede. Treasury prices fell on signs the eurozone is healing from its sovereign debt crisis. [View news story]
    Pete, on your mind you can be rich and retire if you want, heck those are your fantasies.
