      Hi bonzo. Wimbledon !!! no i find tennis boring to watch , but great to play.
      Football !!! no i find i have better things to spend my money on , rather than enrich wealthy , overpaid footballers, & be bombarded by ads from big multi national companys that just want to rip me off with their overpriced goods , besides i have NEVER followed the HERD…… If i was to attend eighter of those two events , it would be with a huge protest banner which would proclaim to the people that they are been shafted by their governments & the bankers….. Time to end my mini rant.
      bonzo……. Have a great weekend , spend it with as many family members as you can.

        Tony, glad to hear you won’t be at Wimbledon or Wembley. I agree that most tennis is boring to watch, but I love to watch Kerber, Federer, and Nadal. I used to love to watch Gabriella Sabatini and Chris Evert, Rosewall, Pancho Gonzales, Borg, Connors, McEnroe, Wilander, Henin, Graf, and Milos Mecir. I will watch England and Italy play on TV but that will be the last soccer I watch until the next World Cup. Go England!

          bonzo – Gone are the glory days of Wimbledon with Federer I feel being the last class act! As for England/Italy I can’t bear to watch:, given that the hysteria either way will only leave England in a worse place! Sorry but my killjoy instincts are now ramped up to the max!
          Best to you and Tony, Andrew

            Andrew, with Federer fading, all I have left is Kerber, and she is 33. And I was rooting hard for the Danes and thought they were robbed by a ridiculous penalty kick given to England.
            Too bad one of the best Danish players took the Bill Gates kill shot a couple of weeks before the 1st match. I hear that in Vienna 50 victims are collapsing each day after getting jabbed, but they keep lining up like cattle to get the shots. Wake up!

      Thomas – Thanks for the info on the Salton Sea Lithium area play. It will be interesting to see how it all develops, and if it comes to fruition as they envision.

      We’ve heard for a decade that there was plenty of Lithium brined in the Oil/Gas wells that could easily be extracted, and it would put an end to traditional hardrock and lithium brine mining companies. A half dozen companies have tried it over the last decade to no avail, and we’re still waiting…. This does look like a new iteration of that narrative, but just in the geothermal pools of lithium brine, but they are spending boatloads of money and the California government is handing out money like candy, so maybe they can make it work.

      We’ve also heard for a decade that there was plenty of Lithium already found on Earth, and for years we heard from pundit after pundit, as they scoffed at the Lithium mining sector as “hopium” and “scamdium” that the big 3 chemical conglomerates (Albemarle, SQM, and FMC [now renamed Livent]) would easily be able to supply the world with Lithium and the world didn’t need any more producers or companies.

      That narrative that the Big 3 are all the world would ever need ended up being completely erroneous and 100% BS, as there have been about 8 more Lithium producers emerge during that time period, with a handful more getting close to moving into production in the next few years. Looks like there was plenty of room for more lithium companies to come to market, and most underestimated what the battery demand would be.

      Was is truly sad is that investors that bought into those “experts” narrative that we as a planet were all good on Lithium and it was a monopoly for just 3 companies, completely missed an excellent opportunity to get 5-15 baggers in the up and coming Li development stories before they made it into production and as they continued on climbing since they’ve made it into production.

      Personally, I’m glad I didn’t listen to chorus of nonsense we’ve heard from most of the resource experts this last decade, and personally was involved with a half dozen of the winners that provided multi-bagger returns.

      Ever Upward!

      Excelsior says:

      It is unlikely that the US will default on their debt, or cease perpetually raising the debt ceiling. We’ve seen dozens of times where there was emotional political theater around raising the debt ceiling, and even a partial government shut down twice, and in the end they always raise the debt ceiling, and always print more money to backstop the growing insanity of government nanny state programs, reckless spending, waste, and graft. It won’t be any different under this administration, just like it wasn’t under any of the preceding ones. Bad decisions will be perpetually papered over, and the US hasn’t been able to mathematically repay this debt for a long time. Rinse and repeat….

      • On July 10, 2021 at 1:31 pm,
        Excelsior says:

        This is also precisely why the Central Banks have not allowed rates to return to “normal” levels of 4%-8% for the last decade as it would implode the system overburdened by all this mountain of debt, and the jig would be up. Until then we’ll see rates rise and fall some, historically rates under 4% are downright silly, so even if they get up to 2% or 3% that is small potatoes, and still “manageable” to the powers that be.

        • On July 10, 2021 at 1:59 pm,
          Excelsior says:

          Another interesting dynamic is that Inflation finally reared it’s head again in 2021 (even though we all know there has been inflation happening all along just not in the warped government calculations of CPI and “core” CPI that strips out energy and food costs).

          Any way you slice it costs have continued to go up in most aspects of life for a long time, and anybody paying for food, energy, clothes, products, or events can easily remember how much things used to cost versus how much they cost now. The erosion of purchasing power has been constant and is a silent and insidious tax on the citizens of any nation. Now even in the US inflation can no longer be disguised even in the government metrics. The genie is out of the bottle now, and try as they may, that inflation genie is not going back in any time soon.

          Sure, we may see inflation readings tame down for the next 2 months a little bit, which will feed fuel to the “inflation is just transitory” narrative, but medium term inflation is unlikely to back down, and much more likely to keep chugging higher.

          The FED has no interest in people getting worried about inflation, because if so, who in the hell would want to buy treasuries offering 1.5% or 2% returns, when inflation is 3-5%? The answer: nobody. This is why they spend so much time crafting the narrative to be just “transitory” because if investors quite buying bonds, then interst rates will skyrocket higher, and this makes that mountain of debt unstainable.

          For the average citizens that want to save money for the future they must contemplate the following: Who would want to park money in CDs or Money Markets paying 1-2% if the inflation is 3-5% and eroding their money more than the paltry saving return they are getting? The answer: nobody.

          There will be a point as the central bankers jawbone things into a boring range, and do their best to tapdance around the reality of inflation running much hotter than they can control, where people will wake up and see the writing on the wall. If they start losing the war, then central bankers will just come out with overt yield curve controls to keep those rates from getting too high which would cripple the debt burdened system, and rising rates would also temper back the general stocks markets.

          As a result, when the larger financial institutions, pension funds, and insurance companies finally wake up and realize they are getting hosed holding bonds, due to the erosion of inflation, then there will be a massive capital migration out of bonds which will look for a home in different assets with a better return or that can keep pace with inflation. That is traditionally in Energy and Precious Metals.

          However, for the last few years, there has also been the phenomenon of investors dog piling into the general stocks markets into a narrow band of lunatic high-flying tech stocks, FAANG stocks, and lately the Meme Stocks, all of which giving the false sense of security that the “indexes are doing just fine and hitting all time highs….” There is sickness under the surface though, and the market breadth is fugly, so really it comes down to an obscene concentration into just a few dozen names, further backstopped by ETFs piling into those same few dozen names.

          If the market does eventually have a capitulation moment, and ALL markets eventually do, then even the “safety” of “no lose” tech stocks and growth stocks to infinity and beyond, that investors are so disproportionately concentrated in, will come crashing down to an end.

          If inflation keeps running hot, and people start to abandon traditional savings instruments or the safe haven appeal of bonds, and rates are artificially held down by Central Bankers covertly through jawboning, or overtly through yield curve controls, then real rates will continue to be negative and there will be few places left to hide. As that plays out the Precious Metals and Energy sectors will be part of one’s financial lifeboat to keep sailing the uncharted waters.

            Yes, that was Sean Brodrick’s perspective as well earlier this week, where he mentioned that Energy is a better inflation hedge than Gold, but that the yellow metal and silver were both still pretty good places to be in an inflationary environment.

            Here is that interview again in case anyone missed it:

            _______________________________________________________________________________

            “Sean Brodrick joins us for a focus on the oil market. Oil has been on a strong and relentless run higher since the crash into negative prices over 1 year ago. We discuss where he is seeing opportunity in the oil stocks. We also carry the moves in oil over to the ongoing inflation narrative and debate as to whether it will be transitory or here to stay.”

          Higher Inflation Is Here to Stay for Years, Economists Forecast

          Wall Street Journal – By Gwynn Guilford and Anthony DeBarros – July 11, 2021

          “Americans should brace themselves for several years of higher inflation than they’ve seen in decades, according to economists who expect the robust post-pandemic economic recovery to fuel brisk price increases for a while.”

          “The respondents on average now expect a widely followed measure of inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy components, to be up 3.2% in the fourth quarter of 2021 from a year before. They forecast the annual rise to recede to slightly less than 2.3% a year in 2022 and 2023.”

          “That would mean an average annual increase of 2.58% from 2021 through 2023, putting inflation at levels last seen in 1993.”

          “We’re in a transitional phase right now,” said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economics LLC. “We are transitioning to a higher period of inflation and interest rates than we’ve had over the last 20 years.”

    It would be ideal and most bullish to see a higher low put in for Gold a reasonable distance above the March double bottom.

    We’d then see a pattern of higher lows from the 2020 March Pandemic Crash low of $1450.90, to the March 2021 low of $1673.30 earlier this year, and it is even still possible that $1750.10 low last week was the next intermediate low before the next uptrend. Even if that wasn’t the low, if Gold stays above $1673 and makes a higher lower in the low $1700s or high $1600s, then it still could be a bullish uptrend in motion.

        Just now caught up with all the Virgin Galactic Richard Branson news today. Another move closer to the general public getting flights to space. Glad it went off safely and it is an interesting milestone for the company.

        I noticed Bezos’s Blue Origin is set to go into space in the not so distant future, but will be going to a higher elevation that Virgin Galactic. Blue Origin tweated out a diss about 50 miles only being recognized as “space” by a minority of people & organizations, but that they (Blue Origin) were going up 61 miles+ and will be more authentic in taking passengers into space.

    The HUI’s long-legged Doji candlestick this week shows that bulls and bears were essentially equally matched. However, since it followed a sharp decline and last week’s bull hammer, I read it as much more bullish than neutral or bearish. Such candles often mark turns. When they appear during a mature uptrend, they are more bearish than bullish.

    It is interesting… I’m catching up on the weekends news and it was peppered with articles about the Meme-stock trend continuing on. This has got to be end of cycle mania we’re seeing, but it is interesting what a force the mobs of new retail investors have become in concert with using social media to create high volume trades as the “apes” pile into mania stocks that are trending.

    The Meme Stock Trade Is Far From Over. What Investors Need to Know.

    Barron’s – By Avi Salzman – July 11, 2021

    “It seemed to be only a matter of time.”

    “When GameStop (ticker: GME), BlackBerry (BB), and even the desiccated carcass of Blockbuster suddenly sprang to life in January, the clock was already ticking for when they would crash again. Would it be hours, days, or weeks?”

    “It has now been half a year, and the core “meme stocks” are still trading at…”

          Why The Meme Stock Revolution Will Last

          Andy Serwer with Max Zahn – Sat, July 10, 2021

          “The economy and markets are awash in money; from stimulus checks, Federal Reserve policy moves and rising wages, all of which are boosting stock prices to record highs.”

          “Interest rates are at record lows which is creating, among other things, massive demand for high-yielding junk bonds, sending their yields below the rate of inflation rate for the first time ever. (Low rates are also contributing to the run-up in stocks, as stocks are now the only investment providing any kind of return.)”

          Betting against all this froth has proven to be a fool’s errand so far, giving proof yet again to the Wall Street adage: “The market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.”

          “And yet there are at least two factors that are potentially different this time around; cryptocurrency and the meme stock phenomenon. I won’t dwell on crypto — and all of its potential and foibles — here, but will focus instead on meme stocks and more broadly, the so-called retail investor revolution.”

          “Before I delve into that though, let me acknowledge that in suggesting something that is unique or new when it comes to the financial markets, triggers another Wall Street aphorism. To wit: “Beware when someone says ‘this time it’s different.’” Meaning, a new business model or trading scheme isn’t really new at its core and the old rules still apply, especially the one that says bubbles always burst.”

          “First, let’s define terms. When I’m talking about meme stocks,* I’m of course speaking of GameStop (GME), AMC (AMC), Blackberry (BB) and a few dozen other usually heretofore off-beat stocks that get talked up online, most prominently at Reddit’s wallstreetbets forum by an army of 10.6 million “degenerates.” These investors share tips, ideas and conspiracy theories and buy and sell stocks and options, sometimes trading these securities “to the moon” (to use the lexicon). Unless you’ve been in hiding for the past year, you probably know how crazy this all is, with GameStop, $GME, the meme stock poster child, going from $3 to $300 and now back to $190, over the past year…”

            The Meme Stock Fantasy Is Becoming a Reality for GameStop and AMC

            The Wall Street Journal – By Spencer Jakab – July 9, 2021

            “The hot companies of the moment are converting hype into real value, following a Wall Street tradition practiced by Tesla, AOL, Cisco and others. But true believers will pay for it.”

            NOK was closest I came to meme stock. Sold some puts at $4 level. It shot up to $9 and back down almost as quickly.

            I’ve traded GME a few times, as well as MVIS and SKT each twice; but never went for the other meme stocks like AMC, BB, BBBY, HTZ, or CLOV, etc….

            There are a few of my pals that are trading options in them and while they were killing it a while back, they got humbled by getting too aggressive and having a few of those trades blow up on them.

            The only one I’m really still tracking is GME where I grabbed a small gambling position in some shares at $184. There are still those fanatics over at Super Stonk that believe it could get squeezed up into the 4 digit arena. I think that is a very lofty outlook for what the retail guys and other institutions and hedgies could pull off, but just in case they have one more big push before the “game” is over… threw some Gamestop logs on the speculative fire. Trading it gives me something to chat with my buddies about, since they have zero interest in mining stocks, and they see precious metals as a relic of the old financial system.

            Regardless, the meme stocks have capture the attention of mobs of retail investors and the larger investing community, and as per the articles posted above, they are having real world effects for these companies that traders dogpile into. It’s definitely a phenomenon to keep tabs on in the markets today.

    It looks to me like gold is now hopefully testing support after breaking through resistance. Fingers crossed this support line and tetra hold of that very important $1796-$1802 area.

    If we can get pass this let’s go and close above $1814 ish on a daily and move to much higher grounds.

          I posted earlier few hours ago this.

          Gold is retesting what was resistance between $1796-$1802. If it can hold it will become support and you we go. A daily cycle close above $1814 and Houston we have take off!

          Turns out it went even slightly lower seems to have run the stops and now we have a beautiful reversal which if we can get into the green would be picture perfect!
