Gold vs. Inflation Expectations

I have a page with several chart based indicators for NFTRH subscribers to review any time they’d like in order to dovetail what they may see there with the ongoing analysis in NFTRH and their own alternate sources as well. One of those indicators is the GLD/RINF ratio, which measures the gold price in terms of the variables that make up ‘inflation expectations’ ETF.

Wouldn’t you know, T-bonds continue to posture to rally

Amid hysterical inflation headlines, Treasury bonds remain firm Of course, inflation is yesterday’s news. That was the news that bonds had been reporting since mid-2020 when yields bottomed and turned up, culminating with a breakout from the Continuum’s limiting moving averages and a possible halt here below the key November, 2018 high. Now bonds are reporting something else. It’s no surprise that as the inflated … Continue reading Wouldn’t you know, T-bonds continue to posture to rally

Stocks fell into a bear market on Friday!

Stocks enter a bear market! Stocks enter a bear market based on some arbitrary percentage that lazy media assign to it. So, like 19% was okay? No dear MSfN, stocks were indicated to have entered a bear market (of some kind) back in February when the weekly chart of SPX crossed its moving averages down (red arrow) and failed to climb above either of them … Continue reading Stocks fell into a bear market on Friday!

The proving ground for Silver

The ‘V’ bounce has come from viable long-term support (not visible on this daily chart) that we observed in an NFTRH update (password protected) a week ago. The daily moving average trends are down, but even within that downtrend it … Continue reading The proving ground for Silver

Gold vs. Bitcoin

The monetary metal has changed trend vs. monetary digits The future of money will have to wait before the new digital munny is ready to take over safe haven ‘liquidity’ status from the old metallic monetary relic. Where the former has the laser-eyed likes of know-nothings Tom Brady and Paris Hilton among its promoters, gold only has history; long, boring, staid, tepid history (oh yeah, … Continue reading Gold vs. Bitcoin

Bonds again diverge inflation headlines

Bonds up today despite alarming inflation headlines The hysteria of the moment, served up as usual by the mainstream financial media off of backward looking data/results, has not resulted in bonds getting clobbered as would normally be expected. As was the case after last week’s CPI hysterics, Treasury bonds of all durations are positive today. This despite the very real and concerning inflation data behind … Continue reading Bonds again diverge inflation headlines

Currencies (incl. Bitcoin) vs. USD

Global currencies and Bitcoin vs. USD Reference a previous post on ‘commodity currencies‘ From NFTRH 705‘s Currencies segment… Everybody in this sad picture is as they were last week. The reserve currency is sucking up all that liquidity fleeing the risk ‘on’, inflated cyclical asset world and the other ‘non-reserve’ currencies are being exposed as the fundamentally valueless instruments they are. Of course USD is … Continue reading Currencies (incl. Bitcoin) vs. USD

Inflation hitting retailers hard

Target and Walmart hit hard with cost increases What good are increased sales when every unit of sales is subject to pressured margins? It’s another manifestation of our antlered friend, the Stag… Ref. from one year ago… Inflation: Going Stag We are already seeing Stagflationary pressure in the above linked ISM report, in Semiconductor supply shortages, in seemingly unavailable labor, in FOOD (as NFTRH has … Continue reading Inflation hitting retailers hard
