Look At The Fear/Greed Index Now

This was pointed out this morning by Peter Boockvar in one of his morning notes… Look at where the fear/greed index is currently and compare that to early January when it was at highest level possible (100).

When fear is this elevated today is showing us nothing is safe. Do not listen to those who say a market crash is good for PMs. It will be when things stabilize but in a rush for cash everything goes down.

        Hi D.T:
        I have been following your posts about the eventual scenario we find ourselves in with artificial intelligence.
        One has to look no further than Commercial Aviation. After watching numerous videos on Commercial Aviation crashes, the common denominator is the Pilots dependence on technology, check lists and just forgetting how to fly the plane.
        Those in charge of the technology have passed the buck on us, those being the FAA.
        In an E-Mail released, the Boeing Execs said of the FAA when they presented the 737 Max to them, and I quote”Like Dogs Watching T.V”
        Another quote was “This Airplane is designed by Clowns, who are in turn supervised by Monkeys.” This was an employee quote in 2017
        Those in charge of the technology when corrupted by greed, dividends, stock prices etc..
        will sacrifice the public, much like we are seeing today with the Algo driven Markets.

          Hi John, Check this short video out called “A Trip Through New York City in 1911.” It has been remastered and colorized. Note how far technology has progressed in 100 years. Our species will not be able to accept all this change and what’s to come in our present form.

            I just received my 1914 $10 Federal Reserve note. On the back it has farmers harvesting Hemp with a four horse team and three men. The advances in agriculture have played a big part as well.
            Thanks for the video.

    The first time the American Sheeple open their 401K statements and they see their retirement going backwards instead of the steady gains they have grown accustomed to, the collective consciousness of these markets will have changed.
    The second time they see their 401K statement going down, the herd will be on the verge of a stampede.

    OOTB:
    Your comment on the David Erfle blog was spot on. You really nailed it.
    One has to look at who are the participants in the futures markets, and in no way does this reveal the true reality of which we find ourselves.
    Rather the reality that the participants want you to believe.
    The only question left for me is whether I will live long enough to see the true reality.

    One last Political note.
    Even if Donald Trump does get re-elected,four years will pass and he will leave.
    You can bet your last dollar the National Debt will still be there and it will be substantially larger.

    The way I use technicals I have targets hit on qqq….with an RSI forming on virtually all intra day time frames and oversold on dayly…Turn around Tuesday?…Unless the market pulls a black monday…but will look at that low Monday, that day, hard!..on day chart this is day 7 of a Tom Demark count so Monday through Wed. can pull a reversal per that pattern and 75% of time market is up even in bears until revulsion occurs

      Hi Jerry…Not sure if you were aware that i was a member of the Brexit Party.
      Cut a long story short , some of us have been working behind the scene , & have been speaking with grassroots movements in , Ireland / Italy / Germany & France who have an interest in following what the UK did . It has taking up a lot of my time , hence my lack of postings over the past year or so….But now this Corona Virius thing has come along its almost but a brake on our talks..Hope that clears up some things.

    Big boyz know this. This is a hard shake off for Powell to cut rates. It won’t over next week though. But it’s going to prove a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire mining shares for cheap! 40 million GDX were bought at market close today.

      Almost every mining stock broke to the downside today.

      There were a few bright spots like Lion One (LIO) or Northern Shield (NRN), but most companies tanked out hard today, and have been plunging most of the week.

      It was more of a sell everything marketplace.

    Today’s low for gold was still $20+ above its quarterly Bollinger Bands. It never traded outside the BBs during the 7 years prior to Q2 2019. This is big-picture strength.

    @Goldfinger – “Maybe it’s a classic sentiment gauge but I’m glad i’m not attending PDAC (a few others appear to also have recently cancelled plans to attend)…the last thing I want to do right now is sit around with thousands of promoters telling me how great their story is.”

    “However, I will say there are tons of “bargains” out there right now….that’s of course if the world isn’t irreparably altered forever. I bought one stock today….just one. You probably don’t want to know which one judging by my P&L last week…. Enjoy your weekend everyone and remember there is a lot more to life than stocks, numbers on a screen, and money. Hug your friends and family, kiss your kids, and presence some gratitude for your life. “
