    When has the stock market NOT been in a period of "instability"?

  • Market Outlook - Watch The VIX For Clues [View article]
    I challenge the author to produce a single credible study that establishes a definitive link between the VIX and future (not current) S&P levels.

  • All Eyes On Syria And The Fed For The Next Gold Price Move [View article]
    Gold is on the verge of exploding upward. The sell offs are manipulations to allow anyone who wants to get in on the action, to do so at lower prices. We need to thank the likes of JP Morgan and of course, the FED for making it so. Aren't they being thoughtful?

  • Last Hour Sell-Offs Becoming The Norm [View article]
    It's September! Holding stocks overnight is risky mainly because if the 'crash' possibility, forget Syria.

  • Natural Gas Tumbles Below $3.60 Despite Ongoing Hot Spell, Surplus Shrinks Slightly [View article]
    I am not waiting for "one final leg lower ahead of winter". I am already in the market and if there actually is another leg down, that would be a bonus and I will commit further to the long side. The bear market in NG is over.

  • Gold's Dead Cat Bounce Is Dying If Not Dead ... Again [View article]
    Robert, even if I don't always agree with your arguments, I enjoy reading your articles and always very entertaining comment section. Your articles are like salt in the hurting wounds of the beat up pro-gold crowd. Is there a bias by the SA editors? Maybe there just isn't that many contributors that are negative on gold. On the other hand, bullish on gold articles always bring in far more hits from the die-hard goldbug crowd.

  • Will Natural Gas Hit $4? [View article]
    Lior, I don't believe that FCG experiences any roll decay due to the fact that it tracks an index that is made up of the securities of a number of NG companies and does not invest in futures. Any etf or etn that does hold futures suffers badly from contango losses, including UNG, UNL, UGAZ, BOIL. Otherwise, good article.

    NG pricing has only one way to go (up for the medium to long term) until it reaches a level that provides a reasonable return to producers for their massive investments. That would be around $5.

    FIDOkid: Thanks for the great commentary. The author has done his homework but their is something wrong with this stock. It continues to perform poorly despite what seems to be descent fundamentals.

  • Stocks: The Winds Of Change Are Coming [View article]
    Eric, for the past twenty years or so, Germany's DAX as well as Britain's FTSE100 indexes have performed with close correlation to the S&P. If, as you are suggesting, that much of the US markets performance is due to the easy money policies of both Bernake and Greenspan over the past 26 years, how do you explain the strong correlation of two of Europe's largest exchanges with the S&P? I certainly don't think anyone would call Germany's monetary policies as one of 'easy money'.

    Good article. The seasonality thing is a crap shoot.

  • Gold Sentiment Update [View article]
    Very nice article. Sentiment can be an extremely important indicator, much more so when it is at extreme levels.The only way the so called "smart money" will ever move into a hated asset class is when the sentiment is at very low levels.

    It was the American love affair with gold ETFs, back in 2009-2011, that drove gold up to it's all time high. Although the American influence on physical gold consumption is not great compared to that of Asia, we should not discount the possibility that the American public could once again be a driving force via the ETFs. If the US dollar begins to falter badly, the Americans can be expected to react in a very bullish way towards gold. Throw in sudden and rapid increase in inflation and things could get very interesting.

  • Weekly COMEX Gold Update: Registered Gold Continues To Decline [View article]
    I was just reading an article about ANZ planning to build a massive warehouse in Singapore. Anyone want to venture a guess as to what that will do for the Comex inventories?

  • Weekly COMEX Gold Update: Registered Gold Continues To Decline [View article]
    While noting that the Comex registered stocks are continuing to slide, the author states "We're not sure exactly what this means". That statement pretty much sums up the worth of the entire article and the author's continued obsession with a useless indicator that cannot be correlated in a predictive way for past, present and certainly not future gold prices. It is what is: a summary of gold stocks owned by banks that are currently using the Comex to store their gold. It would be a false assumption to conclude that western banks are using the Comex exclusively. So, what can be gleaned from the reported totals of just one warehousing facility? From a practical point of view,, not much of anything useful.

    There is simple explanation that the author refuses to acknowledge. The storage of gold is now being spread over a larger group of warehouses than in the past and a decline in the Comex's share of the pot has been the inevitable result. No FED conspiracy, no hidden agenda, no secret bank plot.
