Wrapping Up This Week – The US Markets, VIX, and Commodities

Chris Temple joins me to wrap up this week in the markets. We start with the US equity markets which in the S&P’s case is very close to breaking the lows from early in this year. There is a lot of air under that support if broken. We also look at the move higher in the VIX but no where near an explosion higher. Finally comment on a couple commodity sectors that got hit on the back on weak data out of China and Europe.

    Rick Rule Investing “Know-Who” with Ross Beaty, Part 2

    By Remy Blaire – Sprott Media on – December 14, 2018

    “Gold is being watched like a hawk as volatility extends its topsy-turvy ride through the global equity markets. The price action for the precious metal has been lackluster despite the wild swings in the stock market. With gold slowly edging higher but not advancing at a rapid pace, the safe-haven metal appears range-bound for now.”

    “The steady upward trend in equity prices came to a screeching halt in 2018 as asset prices stumbled and wavered throughout the quarters. Triple-digit moves to the upside and downside ceased to cause euphoria or illicit excessive hand wringing from investors.”

    “The big question remains: has the next bull cycle for gold kicked off? If you ask Rick Rule, president & CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings or established resource investor, Ross Beaty, they would emphasize the importance of recognizing the bottom of the market rather than fretting over the timing of the next bull cycle…”

    The Palisade Blog – Our highlights from 2018

    by @PalisadeRadio on December 14, 2018

    “As contrarian investors – we constantly have to ask ourselves if we have conducted enough research and analysis to determine which markets or metals – over the next few years – will bring us the most profits. Let’s take a look.”

    “In general, 2018 has undoubtedly been a mixed tale for resource investors.”

    “From the beginning of the year until now – the uranium spot price has given us a clear signal that a new upward trend has begun.”

    “And as this has been a market that we have been watching closely for a number of years – our research concluded that it was only going to be a matter of time before a sustained turn around in the uranium spot price would begin.”

    “The precious metals markets, on the other hand, have been met with both apathy and scepticism – testing the patience of all resources investors.”

    “And many investors are perhaps now asking themselves if these two metals will ever begin a new bull run?”

    “A better question might be to ask if what we are witnessing today is simply a long period of consolidation that will finally be resolved in 2019? And once resolved, will the metals and the mining equities give us an obvious move upward?”

    “We believe a bull move is on the horizon – but time will tell.”

      Ex, what is scary is that only in North America and some parts of The Western World do you really see precious metal being met with both apathy and skepticism. The Asians are loaded up with physical and we don’t care. They have thousands of years of booms and busts. China is just getting over The Mao years with so much hardship in their recent past. The West is soon going to find out who owns most of the physical, I’m not sure I want to find out. DT

        DT – Good points about the apathy and skepticism being mostly in the West, but its a much different story in the East. Also, gold flows have been going into Asia by way of the gold melted down in Switzerland from western sources, so that has been the trend in physical for some time. Yes, it may be a real wakeup call to some folks in the not so distant future….
