Lobo Tiggre - The Independent Speculator – Wed 11 Mar, 2020

The good and bad news for metals investors in this time of market panic

Lobo Tiggre wraps up our editorials today by looking at the big picture for metals stocks. With everything selling off huge today, the major gold producers have a near perfect storm (in a good way) to help boost their profitability. It doesn’t mean that these stocks will rebound tomorrow but history has shown us that metals stocks bounce back quickly when a turn or sense of calm enters the markets.

    If we see bankruptcy’s, people losing their jobs, suspending payments of debt, the business world could roll over like a row of tenpins. When one employee loses his job it affects two other jobs in the service sector and it decreases the potential buying power of the country. With oil collapsing and silver down in price what we could really be witnessing is a deflationary cycle, not 2008. DT

      Marty, this is not 2008. If you lived in Canada during or after 2008, we did not have a housing correction, period. This time we are sky high in debt at all levels of life. I think this time will be much more like 1929. DT

    As GreatGameIndia.com details, in a $2 billion race to find a vaccine various companies are infecting humans with Coronavirus for clinical trials. A medical research firm based in the U.K. is offering more than $4,500 to individuals willing to serve as guinea pigs and be injected with two strains of Coronavirus similar to COVID-19 in a bid to find a vaccine for the new deadly virus. In the U.S., another firm is seeking participants for a COVID-19 vaccine study, but the pay is not as high, nor as quick, nor as risky.

      “Late last night, after the court entered the order, we reached a global, final settlement of all issues,” Roberts’s lawyer wrote in an email to Judge Meyer.

      The miners are likely to snap back once earnings results start coming in and an important low could easily be just a day or three away.

        Excelsior says:

        Agreed that the earnings season in the producers for Q1 should be solid at these higher metals prices, and those will start hitting the news wires in late April to early May.

        That would nice to see a significant low put in during the next few trading sessions, followed by a snapback rally.

        There looks to be a lot of indecision and tug-o-war between buyers and sellers on that current weekly candle in Oil. That is good and it is hovering right above that fork support, so this would be a nice place for it to find a little support as well.

        For the first time since 2016 I waded back into the Oil stocks today with a small position in both key ETFs – XLE and XOP. I’m prepared that they can face more weakness as some companies financials will under pressure, but they’ve really pulled back far already from where they were a year ago, or even since the beginning of this year. Those ETFs are liquid enough to trade in and out fairly easily to protect capital or make a quick scalp trade. For now I’m prepared to average down 1-2 more times at key levels, but just wanted a toehold position in place to start building around.
