  • Silver Poised to Surge
    By on March 23, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Silver is scraping major support again, after a rough couple months where speculators left it for dead.  But today’s brutal lows and extreme universal bearishness are the perfect breeding ground for silver’s next big rally.  Investors are very underexposed, while speculators have big short pos...
  • Market Cap to GDP: The Buffett Valuation Indicator
    By on March 22, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Market Cap to GDP is a long-term valuation indicator that has become popular in recent years, thanks to Warren Buffett. Back in 2001 he remarked in a Fortune Magazine interview that “it is probably the best single measure of where valuations stand at any given moment.” The four valuation...
  • The Long-Term Dollar Index
    By on March 22, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The words of wisdom often (mistakenly) attributed to Mark Twain – “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme” – come to mind when sizing up the possibilities for another financial crisis sooner-rather-than-later amid all the global hand-wringing about the rapidly rising U.S. dollar,...

    Just a few days ago, the bull market for the S&P 500 turned six years old.  This six year period of time has been great for investors, but what comes next?  On March 9th, 2009 the S&P 500 hit a low of 676.53.  Since that day, it has risen more than 200 percent.  As you will see below, th...

    This commentary has been updated to incorporate the Federal Reserve release of the Q4 Financial Accounts.

  • Sorry, But This is Not 1997 For The Market!.
    By on March 19, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Several months ago I wrote of how super bull markets that last nine or ten years have been once in a generation situations, the last ones being those of the 1920’s and the 1990’s, but that there were enough similarities to 1997 in the current bull market that it could possibly make it into that ...

    By on March 16, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The market has a very long history of making most of its gains in the favorable winter season between October and May, while if there is to be a substantial correction it most often takes place in the unfavorable season of May to October. The pattern is so consistent that academic studies (and actu...
  • The New Dow Ain’t Like The Old Dow
    By on March 15, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Last Friday, it was announced the Apple (AAPL) will join the Dow Jones Industrial Average replacing AT&T. This change will occur on March the 18th after the close of the bell. At the same time, VISA (V) announced a 4:1 stock split. I am not a huge fan of stock splits as they are dilutive to shar...
  • A Patient Fed Considers Losing Patience
    By on March 15, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    I have always argued that quantitative easing and zero percent interest rates were misguided policies to combat economic weakness. But as the years went on, misguided turned into irresponsible, which led to ridiculous, and then turned into dangerous. But lately, the only word that comes to mind i...

    The euro is tanking again, as the ECB starts buying bonds for its long-promised “whatever it takes” QE program. Today’s exchange rate move is dramatic enough to generate headlines like this, from Forbes: Euro Nears Parity With U.S. Dollar And the decline is accelerating: What we’re seeing h...
  • Trading the Parabolic Dollar
    By on March 14, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The mighty US dollar has been red-hot in March, rocketing higher on the incredible divergence of major central-bank policies.  While the Federal Reserve’s first rate-hike cycle in 9 years looms, the European Central Bank has started aggressively monetizing sovereign debt for the first time ever....
  • Ranking This Bull Market Rally
    By on March 13, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    I thought I would post a rather simple analysis using Prof. Robert Shiller’s stock market data to understand the current stock market rally in relation to previous “bull” market rallies. Each rally is measured following either cyclical or secular bear market correction. I have also...
  • Aftershocks, Part 1: That Austrian Bank
    By on March 13, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    Sometimes little things are the start of much bigger things. Probably the most famous historical example of this is the June 1914 assassination of an Austrian archduke who, it’s safe to say, 99% of the world had neither heard of nor cared about. But the aftershocks of the deed produced the biggest...
