  • Commodities And The Supply Side Of The Economy: Globally Soft Prices [View article]
    Excellent information. It looks like deflation is the longterm outlook , and thus we need to adjust our investment stratagy to comply. Printing $$$$$ will goose the market, and speculators do nothing for the economy. What a sorry mess we got ourselves in.

  • Federal Reserve Continues To 'Tighten Up,' Getting Ready For Raising Rates? [View article]
    A, thanks for your reply, I agree with everything you said, but the rate hike is all about optics, surely 0.25 % rate hike is not destructive to the economy, or even markets, but can effect liquidity and speculators

  • Federal Reserve Continues To 'Tighten Up,' Getting Ready For Raising Rates? [View article]
    SI, well said. Raising rates will strengthen the dollar, hurting the economy , and exports, and further weaken the stock market, and the mortgage and housing market. If they raise rates a little and the roof caves in, so they have to lower them again, they will not only seem powerless but clueless as well, and may have even more negative repercussions. So, what do you do now? That question is above my pay grade

  • Geographical Dependence In Canada: An Explanation For The Technical Recession Of 2015 [View article]
    So the weak Canadian $$ will be of benefit to central Canada. Except the policies of Quebec and Ontario provincial governments driving away investments. See Ontario pension policy, really a tax on employers. Auto industry leaving, you have to have a manufacturing sector to take advantage of weak $$$.

  • The 'Big Long' Gets Bigger As Goldman And HSBC Gobble Up Tons More Gold [View article]
    CC, gold has been a relic for 5000 years, and will continue to shine when all these banks cease to exist. If you print this article in MSM, you would be called a gold bug, and tin hatter. You know the type, you can not eat gold, or buy a candy bar with it. However if you lived in Greece or Cyprus, how much better off you would have been with a gold bar buried in the back yard, than Euros in the bank that you cannot access, and WILL BE CONFISCATED. But that is for an other day

    Love your work Avery

  • The Stock Market's Behavioral Correction Has Begun [View article]
    Michael, I have been a bear for years, looking at the market and geopolitical fundamentals. What with the Greek situation not solved, China now on the brink. The banking situation in Europe and USA. What with Ukraine and Middle East a powder keg. In Cyprus, they raid accounts of clients. You would think A bar of gold buried in the back yard would be more valuable than a Euro in the bank in Greece, but what do I know? I read Hussman, who makes a lot of sense,but has been totally wrong on the market call, but his fundamentals are right. I am really a technician and chart follower but was seduced by the fundamental argument. The charts have been bullish for last 3 years, I suspect not due to fundamentals but QE. Now the charts are showing break downs , and topping formations. So I agree with you, but it has been most painful. What happens if Fed actually lowers interest rates this year rather than hike them? NOT SURE.

    Keep up the good work, enjoy your input, especially on the bond market, which I feel is smarter than the stock market.

  • Still Not Short Gold? Here's Another Chance [View article]
    Short gold? that train has left the station. Could gold go down more, sure. But what have you been doing for 3 years? Not ideal time to short, for large risk, small rewards. Picking up pennies before a steam roller. You may pick some pennies, but risk is very high.
