  • The bull market in stocks is going to run for the rest of the year, despite the market's already-outsized gains, says Byron Wien. “Over the past three months the pessimistic mood has changed to optimism,” Wien observes, and buying will continue to pick up as more equity "disbelievers" are converted, the economy improves and more companies follow Apple’s lead in paying dividends.  [View news story]
    More evidence the smart money is getting nervous as the usual buyers, retail investors, are long gone leaving the institutions holding the stock grab bag.

  • Stocks are undervalued at current levels, and more and more investors are realizing that, coming off the sidelines and back into the stock market, observes Abby Joseph Cohen. Using one particular metric, the S&P 500 is pricing in a 7% decline in corporate profits for each of the next five years. "That’s possible," Cohen says, "but it’s not likely."  [View news story]
    It looks like the smart money needs to sell, sure I'll buy stocks when they are 20 percent lower :)

  • The Remarkable Rise In The Price Of Silver [View article]
    Sliver did have a nice move on Friday closing up 3.82% on volume of 42,779 however the gain in OI was a mere 1,673. Looks more like short covering then new buying, still the trend is up, for now anyway.

  • Long-Term, Monthly S&P 500 Charts Suggest Bear Market May Be Beginning [View article]
    Sell off performance of stock index futures through today: SP500 lower by 10.27% (up 19.34% from the 12 mo low), Nasdaq100 off by 12.05% (23.43% from its 12mo low) and small cap Russell 2000 lower by 13.40% (still higher by 23.22%), so far this sell off has been a sleeper but listening to the financial news they act like the end of the world is approaching. Am still waiting for the other financial shoe to drop if it does then I'll be there to buy but still waiting.

  • Exactly How Much Can We Expect From Stocks On QE3? [View article]
    I don't think there will be a crash anytime soon not with open-ended QE supporting the market, if anything equities will probably not do much of anything anymore.

  • Survival Rules For A Zombie Stock Market [View article]
    I totally agree, the stock market used to be a real market based on price discovery once, but now, forget about it.

  • Has Inflation Turned, As The Fed Expected? [View article]
    Temporary bottom in Natural Gas at best, any rallies will easily be met with new selling. Precious metals look like they are setting up for another wave lower unless the dollar heads lower from current levels. Still waiting for that overdue correction in equities so until it happens, better opportunities elsewhere.

  • Silver: Rally Remains Strong As Ever Despite Wednesday's Events [View article]
    These big breaks are excellent buying opportunities, that is if you time it right, in futures anyway. Inside days in gold and sliver today so have to see if they can continue to push higher.

  • Natural Gas Continues Its Epic Fall [View article]
    While its not impossible to rule out $2 nat gas, I would be real surprised to see $1 but as nat gas supplies are now 21% over the 5 year average with winter roughly half over coupled with never ending higher temperature outlooks, one can make a compelling case why it could trade $1 but I'll believe it when i see it.

  • Stock-Bull Topping Underway Looks Just Like 2007's Last One [View article]
    A better question to ask if its so easy to make these buy low calls, why even bother with running an apparent subscription newsletter in the first place?

  • Commodity Chart Of The Day: Natural Gas [View article]
    I am in Chi town and I can tell you without looking temps are nowhere near the highs (50s) that I heard on the news just the other day! Leave it to the media to make it seem like spring is here when the reality is winter is just beginning.

  • Commodity Chart Of The Day: Natural Gas [View article]
    Natural gas is now challenging the downtrend from the Nov high as well as bumping up against resistance around 3.334 so market could pull back and if so will be a great time to buy as prices could easily reach 3.520 or higher if this market gets motivated.

    The shorts are the ones bailing out because they are on the wrong side of the market again. Most likely they were assuming winter will be the same as last year which is turning out not to be the case. You know what the say about assuming right?
