Daily Market Wrap – Tue 20 Dec, 2016

The long-term yield outlook could be the story for 2017

In today’s markets wrap I wanted to focus mostly on the 10 year treasury yield. The trend change that was experienced half way through this year has now moved the 10 year yield up and past the long-term downtrend line. While yields should take a break in the next month of two if in 2017 we continue to see yields slowly rise this will be the most significant story for the financial sector.

Here is the Long-term chart showing the down-trend line now broken.

      He would know. Could he really be spilling his guts?

      The great David McGowan wrote a 60-page expose on pedophilia in the US called ‘The Pedophocracy’. Giuliani is mentioned in this document.

        John K… nothing about the market monoply numbers…it’s the market wrap.

        Chartster… it was an account that was suspended. Looks like the former Georgia house member Cynthia Ann McKinney picked it up and ran with it. She is quite the activist.

        McKinney was re-elected to the House in November 2004, following her successor’s run for Senate. In Congress, she advocated unsealing records pertaining to the CIA’s role in the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the murder of Tupac Shakur. She continued to criticize the Bush Administration over the 9/11 attacks. She supported anti-war legislation and introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

          Years ago I thought Cynthia was a quack. As it turns out, she was right.

          The Rudy Twitter link looks like he saved it on a server, even though his account was suspended ( which is also, telling )

            US Population Grows At Slowest Pace Since The Great Depression; Residents Flee Illinois Again

            According to data released by the US Census, in 2016 the U.S. population grew at the lowest rate since the Great Depression, while the state of New York shrank for the first time in a decade. The biggest loser, again, was Illinois which shrank for a third consecutive year, losing 38,000 people, mostly from the Chicago area.

    Picked up some more $AXU this morning that swung to in the money by the afternoon.

    The Angry Geo was picking on Alexco today and some of his critique seemed to paint a picture that was completely off-base.

    There is absolutely no doubt that the Bellekeno, Lucky Queen, Flame & Moth, and now Bermingham deposits that (AXR) (AXU) Alexco have at Keno Hill are all extremely high grade, and all of those deposits are close to the mill. They have even more deposits and future targets to work there, so it is really is turning into a District Scale resource, and will be economical if they can figure out a solution to the $SLW streaming arrangement. #Silver #Zinc #Lead #Development

    Here is a map of the different deposits on Alexco’s property:

      Once Silver starts heading back up again towards $20, the share-price of Alexco will be many multiples higher.

      Check out this video with the CEO from November for a bit more info based on the reality of what Alexco has planned. They discuss their plan to go back into production in 2017, and how the different deposits play into it.

        Big thanks to CFS for pointing out this interview hosted by Jay Taylor, with Dan Oliver, Michael Oliver, Gwen Preston, and Eric Coffin. Very interesting interview!

        Is Trump Destined to Mirror the Hoover Depression?
        December 20, 2016 – Hosted by #JayTaylor

        Episode Description

        ” #DanOliver #MichaelOliver #GwenPreston and #EricCoffin return. Drawing from Roman history, Dan was one of the few financial analysts who predicted a Trump victory. But be careful what you wish for, Mr. Trump, because in many ways, you are inheriting a mess similar but exponentially greater than that inherited by President Hoover. Can Trump avoid the same outcome? Dan will opine. Michael will provide his usual momentum and structural insights into the markets while Gwen and Eric share the microphone to tell us about some of the exciting Gold and Silver mining companies that will be exhibiting at (MIF) Metals Investor Forum in Vancouver on January 20th and 21st. We will also ask Gwen and Eric for their views on the state of the gold markets and if there are any other metals markets they think look attractive as we enter 2017.”

            It was pretty close to that Fork support on the chart where Gold did hit $1125 and was very close to it where it bounce. We also aren’t out of the wood completely yet hovering around $1130, so overall pretty forkin’ good…..

    David Cates: The Uranium Market is Getting Tight, and There Isn’t Enough Production

    Palisade Radio – Dec 20, 2016

    “David Cates president and CEO of two companies- Uranium Participation Corporation and Denison Mines, joins us to discuss the Uranium market. He says the Uranium spot price has moved upwards in the last week and that uranium stocks have yet to price this move in. In recent months a lack of liquidity and a thinly traded market has limited price discovery, however this has improved recently as more utilities have been buying.

    Over the next few years he expects more utilities to enter the market and good returns in the 2-4 year range as demand increases and supply declines. The current price is not reflective of actual production costs in his opinion. David thinks the spot price should move towards the $40 level and possibly $60 or higher. Very few projects are in the global pipeline to fulfill the looming supply demand gap.

    David says it’s difficult to judge the market supply dynamics and in the grand scheme the market is currently oversupplied, although secondary supplies are being unloaded. This is the cause of the general softness in the market. Some are concerned that China has significant inventory, however he anticipates that this stockpile will look reasonable once more of their reactor builds come online.

    David also discusses a Canadian-focused company, and why he believes the Athabasca basin is the best jurisdiction in the world to be a uranium developer. He says they are set to be the next major uranium producer in this region.”

      Yep, I had posted the drill results up above and was very impressed with their 10% raise in production guidance for 2017. Things are moving the right direction and Jaguar isn’t anywhere close to being valued like peers, so there is a nice value/perception arbitrage opportunity.
