  • Will Silver Remain Close To $20? [View article]
    @EvProspect: I estimate the breakout coming within 12 months, Q1 2015 at the latest. The 3 yr bear market will reverse and we will see the real rise of silver, upwards of $100 in the years following.

    QE will cause inflation, it is a matter of time. The increase in 'supply' needs to make its way into the economy before we see the effect on price i.e. inflation.

    Currently, the QE supply increase, for the most part, is sitting at the Fed or member banks.

    $17.50 - $17.75 range is the first speed bump to the bottom.

    $15 in July with possibility of $12.50.

    Phiz man, i'll give you that, a touch rough.

    advocate holding physical, but expect further price decline in the next few months before the ascent of money begins in earnest.

    cfetrader maybe the only one with a clue in the room. I will look for prices to drop toward $15 before adding any long positions. Intermediate term puts until then...

  • Bullish sentiment rises to the highest level in 4 years according to the Charles Schwab Active Trader Survey, with 51% of frequent traders in the bull camp vs. just 25% last October. Most bullish sectors: Tech and energy. Least: Financials, healthcare, minerals, consumer discretionary.  [View news story]
    So bearish sentiment was greatest at the October low?

    Shouldn't that stand to reason that breakthrough bullish sentiment will occur at a March high?

  • Is It Time for a Recovery Paradigm Shift? [View article]
    All these are signs of a worsening economic picture in the US, it may not be a stretch to claim that the stock market has been detached from the real economy as an indicator of health.

  • S&P 500 Performance After 2% Declines [View article]
    Agree, the data points are from the large uptrend (60%+) gain in the index. If you believe a downtrend has resumed, these numbers will not hold out.

  • Down on Fed Day Mornings [View article]
    Interesting, but the sample size is admittedly small. Macro conditions since 1994 have not mirrored what is being faced today.

  • U.S. Housing: The Big Picture [View article]
    THe Alt-A and option adjustable rate mortgages are clear concerns painted in this picture (happens to be my desktop wallpaper). What about the Prime Jumbo loans, the so-called "safe" borrowers? See article below.
