Noonan on Gold & Silver: Jettison Your Beliefs & Read Developing Market Activity Instead

fine silver fine gold

Because we know the trend is down, there is no guesswork about trading from the long side in paper gold. There is no need to “predict” the price direction. Just wait for more information that buyers are beginning to increase (which they are not, so far), and then have a strategy for buying in a changing up trend. Presently, there is no evidence of a change to an up trend, so wait for confirmation and keep one’s powder dry.

Historically, the performance of the S&P 500 Index relative to the U.S. Dollar Index has been a good indicator of bull and bear markets but it has underperformed the Dollar Index since mid-2014. It's an ugly warning sign for the market. I see the stock market moving downward from here.

Noonan: “Gold Ain’t Going Higher – At Least For the Short Term” – and Here’s Why

Gold-bars-on-100-and-50-dollar-bill

Does the fast-fading world reserve currency [the USD] look like it is collapsing? A look at the performance of the U.S. Dollar Index does not suggest that it is, weak as it is. If the fiat dollar is not in danger of imminent “collapse,” or even breaking down, then gold does not have this event as an impetus for rallying higher. [Frankly speaking,] until that changes, gold ain’t going higher, at least in the short term.

Goldrunner: Here’s My Take On All That Debt Ceiling Crap

debt-ceiling

All of the crap about the debt ceiling is really about plausible deniability, delivered as propaganda. Threaten deflation and austerity to make a big scene, and force the people to demand the debt ceiling be raised. This is all part of the “show deflation” at critical times when they want to print more aggressively with no blow back.
