Richard Postma - The Doctor Is In – Tue 30 Jul, 2019

Why do all markets in the US seems to be in slow motion?

Doc joins me for a general discussion on US markets and a couple other areas that seem to be moving in slow motion. The easy excuse is the Fed meeting tomorrow but there is an argument for this to continue even past tomorrow.

    At $1431, gold is at quarterly Bollinger Band resistance (and $17 above monthly BB resistance).

      For the first time in many years, gold finished the last quarter above the quarterly BB. This is a big show of strength and the yearly BB (currently $1833) will be hit far sooner than most think.

      Gold closed at $1441.80 (currently at $1443 in after hours trading).

      It is encouraging to see the better pricing now that the August futures contract rolled over to the December futures.

        I posted the following chart recently because it shows gold closing the last two weeks above the bear market-based final speed resistance line. There’s nothing half-assed about gold’s action these days…

          Nice to see Gold on the surge and break above the whole series of speed resistance lines. Strong action for sure.

          It’s a real nail-biter going into the monthly close tomorrow with it being a FEDbabble rate cut day, where every word from Powell will get over-analysed.

          Only 3 options:
          – 25 basis point cut (baked in at this point)
          – 50 basis point cut (may surprise the markets)
          – no rate cut (there may be a serious tantrum if they hold out until September)

          If gold can put in a strong monthly close tomorrow, then the miners should get even friskier.

            I wouldn’t want to be Powell tomorrow either, as there is no way to keep the sheeple happy.

            As many commentators here mentioned before they ever started initially raising rates in Dec of 2015… the central bankers have painted themselves into a corner.

            The markets are addicted to cheap money, and the only answer at the time was
            to raise rates, only to cut them again. And….. here we are…..

            #Gold, #Silver investing legend Eric Sprott on Junior Mining Spree

            Frik Els | July 30, 2019

            “The Canadian billionaire investor – also a pioneer in the gold-backed ETF industry – has splashed more than C$139 million on 16 gold and silver #explorers (and some nickel on the side) since May, according to junior mining finance authority Oreninc. $127m of the total found its way to Canada-domiciled companies.”

            Something tells me that the rest of the week will be strong. We know a pullback is coming but there’s just not much suggesting that it will start this week.

            An important resistance comes in at roughly 1470 tomorrow…

            Sprott recently said that he doesn’t buy the seniors so I’ve got that in common with him.

            Yes, in fact Sprott sold a big chunk of his Kirkland Lake shares, to buy up that basket of Jrs.

            Personaly, I steer clear of most of the seniors, as they tend to underperform, however some of the Mid-Tier producers can still have nice torque to underlying metals prices. My passion is more in the Jrs – small producers, development stories, and a basket of explorers, as that is where the outperformance is found.

    Watching the Democrat presidential debate, yet again pure LIES are stated about climate change.

    If you simply want to talk about Co2 as the primary mechanism, the physics involved is on a log scale. (Rounding the numbers slightly from memory) In order to have a global rise in temperature, CO2 concentration went from 400 p.p.m. to 800 p.p.m.

    WHAT concentration of CO2 do you need for the next 1 degree centigrade rise?
    Answer: Another 800 p.p.m. to get to 1,600 p.p.m.

    The next 1 degree rise requires another 1,600 p.p.m. to get to 3,200 p.p.m.
    it is not a linear proportionality.

    In another few decades of increasing CO2 it is a FACT that CO2 changes will NOT be the dominant cause of change in temperature, because changes in CO2 will have to be huge to be significant in effecting temperature change.

    Also not well modeled is plant growth, which increases as CO2 concentrations increase.
    (Plant growth is negative feedback on temperature increases)

    And, of course, the big error is still the assumption of the Sun giving constant output.

      MONSANTO……..should pay every dime it has made back to the people
      Mason begins by offering a brief history of Monsanto in the UK. In 1949, that company set up a chemical factory in Newport, Wales, where it manufactured PCBs until 1977 and a number of other dangerous chemicals. Monsanto was eventually found to be dumping toxic waste in the River Severn, public waterways and sewerage. It then paid a contractor which illegally dumped thousands of tons of cancer-causing chemicals, including PCBs, dioxins and Agent Orange derivatives, at two quarries in Wales – Brofiscin (80,000 tonnes) and Maendy (42,000 tonnes) – between 1965 and 1972.

      Life expectancy dropping in UK probably has nothing to do with monsanto and due to immigration policy.
