Market Sentiment Update For January 19
Let’s not talk about valuation risk or the new administration’s execution risk; let’s talk about what may be the biggest risk for a correction, the sentiment situation.

Gold And Silver At Resistance
It’s been a good bounce so far, but technically that is all we have been able to call it it since it began. If it changes that status to something more, fine, we’ll take note and adjust tack. But as you can see, that has not happened yet.

Not only was the sell-down in Medical Devices (IHI) during Trump's press conference ridiculous, there is a case for beneficial tax policy in play for the sector.

About That Treasury Bond Play; MSM Dupes ‘Em Again
I’d still maintain it is very possible the bond bull ended last summer amid the NIRP hysteria, but this bounce was always in the cards.

GDX Daily Chart Update
Short of a rise above the November highs, the question is 'how strong will the bounce be?' because until it hits 26, it would still be in ‘lower high’ territory.

Dropping Prices Bodes Well For Waymo's Driverless Car Technology

It just died of old age. It was already old when I got it. Then I had a '68 Fastback... it got rear ended and totaled. Very sad day.

Dropping Prices Bodes Well For Waymo's Driverless Car Technology

Maybe it's just me but I get a bad feeling about the disconnect between driver and car or driver and the road. Something fundamentally American would be given over to technology, as with so many other daily functions. To this day I still miss my '68 Mustang convertible.

Why I Don't Use Watch Lists

To manage markets successfully, I have found that you are always working even when you are not. Not necessarily by physically studying spread sheets or various data, but by working at understanding the whole of the macro backdrop at any given time and keeping yourself centered and as 'at one' with the backdrop as possible. It needs to become a lifestyle, in that there are certain habits that need to be formed.

I agree with a lot of your article, but I'd also say we are the sum of our history (good and bad) and it is all valuable.

The No.1 Silver Stock For 2017 (SPONSORED POST)
15 days ago

If the Fed is perceived to be behind the curve (i.e. behind in adjusting for future inflation) long-term yields will rise vs. short-term yields. That is bullish for gold and silver *if* the Fed is thought to be behind on inflation. A rising curve can be bullish for gold if yields are declining but short-term yields are declining faster, implying systemic stress and risk 'off'.

The No.1 Silver Stock For 2017 (SPONSORED POST)

Depends on whether the Fed is perceived as behind the curve or not. But I agree, it is best to have balance in this atmosphere where the economy is stable and the Fed is in hike stance. I am however, long US Treasury #bonds as a contrary (to the rate hike story) play while being long stocks (and cash) as well. #Gold is a long-term portfolio balance to me. #Silver more spec.
