Metals and the Bond Market Can Stop This March Madness

Sure, we can discuss oil. But from my perch the bond market, shooting rates higher, and the precious metals with their derivative miners, are the two main forces which can push back on The Fed's likely mistake of focusing on rate cuts and ignoring the possibility of inflation igniting for another wave higher.  On the junior silver miner ETF...

Jerome Powell Starring as Backdraft Ronald

"What would you like to do to the currency and confidence in inflation, Jerome?"  Burn it Gold, silver, copper, and the miners saw a surge as Powell opened his presser with incredibly dovish comments  even though some of the Fed voting members dot plots initially seemed a touch more hawkish than expected.  On the silver ETF monthly chart,...

The Two Most Generous Bartenders in History

If nothing else, Jerome Powell and Janet Yellen may very well wind up going down in history as the two most generous bartenders, proving ample liquidity to markets at each and every juncture for a period of years.  You may be thinking that the current rally in equities, with the broad market refusing to pull back even 2% for nearly one hundred...

Even with the semiconductors soundly red this morning we have seen buyers generally out and about, not sweating the stagflationary PPI and retail sales prints this morning too much. Microsoft is higher by more than 2.5% which, at its $3.1 trillion market cap size, will keep the overall index selling tame unless it reverses.  However, the small...

Finally Feels Like the 1970s Again

The last time we saw a prolonged period of entrenched inflation in this country was during the 1970s. During that period, gold and oil stocks were the two top performers, all the while the "Nifty Fifty" high-flying growth stocks of that era finally saw their collective bubble pop.
