Sean Brodrick – Fri 20 Mar, 2020

Is there a major revaluation coming for financial assets?

Sean Brodrick joins me today to discuss the move into cash broadly by investors. The biggest worry would be a complete revaluation all of a sudden that could further devastate portfolios.

    Stocks Suffer Worst Week Since Lehman Despite Biggest Fed Bailout Ever
    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/stocks-suffer-worst-week-lehman-despite-biggest-fed-bailout-ever

    The system is starting to implode. Can it pull out of this implosion? If not, just think what November will look like. Trumpty Dumpty will have a big fall and we will all have a big fall. Just think what life will be like under Biden and a woke Demorat majority in the District of Criminals. (Not that it’s any good under Republoclowns but it’s going to get even worse.)

          Oil is still roughly 15% above its low the other day.

          The gold miners ended the week in limbo. They could be bottoming here or setting up for a new plunge…

          Gold is still worth 63 barrels of oil per ounce so the miners couldn’t look better fundamentally despite gold being $200 off its high.

            Oil futures closed at $19.84. Was it really 15% lower the other day? That’s as low as I remember seeing it.

            I’m starting to wonder if that is the wrong futures contract that Yahoo Finance is showing, as it is the April contract at $19.84. (spooky number by the way)

            On “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg’s site, it shows Oil futures closed at $22.43, so maybe that is figure you meant.

            It is interesting that all 4 sites have completely different prices:

            Yahoo Finance: Crude Oil 19.85
            Bloomberg: Oil $22.43
            ExchangeRates: Oil $23.65
            Stockcharts: $22.63

            We’ll call Oil in a range between $19.85-$23.65

            Imagine going a year or 8 months back when Oil was in the $60’s and telling folks…. “Hey, early next year, Oil be trading in down in the low $20’s.”

            People would have shaken their heads in disbelief. Think about the Oil companies at these prices. I sold back out of my XLE in afterhours trading just to not be holding it the beginning of next week. I was playing it for a nice rebound, but the trouncing Oil took today makes me believe we’ll finally start seeing the bankruptcies in the Oil patch.

            There are still some oil producing countries that can make money in the high teens and low $20’s but US and Canadian companies are in deep trouble if these prices stay lower for longer.

    What Is Holding Gold Back?

    By Goldmoney Insights – March 20, 2020

    “Gold prices moved to $1700/ozt a few weeks ago as the market started to price in rate cuts. However, since then, prices have fallen back to below $1500/ozt despite broad market turmoil. We believe this price fall is mainly the result of sharply higher real-interest rate expectations as we are seeing a temporary surge in dollar demand. We think this could change on a dime. Massive renewed central bank intervention will push gold prices sharply higher to over $2600 over the medium term.”

      It should be noted that at the end of this last week, that Silver finally did start outperforming Gold and Thursday and Friday.

      On Friday Silver was up over 4.1% to $12.63, while Gold was only up 1.5% to $1501.10.

      That’s about a 3:1 outperformance in Silver over Gold and what we want to see more of.

      Yeah but that’s because the Elohim / Angels (aka extraterrestrial rulers = gods) nuked Sodom and Gomorrah, scorching the area, and leaving only a pile of salt where her body was. They warned their human buddies to heck out of dodge but she lingered, which was a bad decision, and then kaboom.

      How does that have anything to do with Covid-19, the Oil rout, and stock market implosion, and it’s affects on the resource markets?

        I guess one could draw the analogy that some warned to get their funds out of the markets before things rolled over, but most stayed in because they believed the Fed had their backs and markets can only go up. The mantra repeated so often was that the shorts had been wrong for years and each time there was any sense of a correction, it got bought up and charged higher. I guess in that sense those that remained had their account values nuked, and all that is left is a pile of salt. That works as an analogy.
