Gold Miners/Copper Miners Ratio Is Interesting

The GDX/COPX ratio has broken above the 50 & 200 day moving averages and is still going, despite gold’s ignominious state at the moment. Here’s what gold (GLD) looks like today. Here is what copper looked like at yesterday’s close (in-day today it is a hair under 3, at 2.9981/lb). And yes, that is important support. Against the broader Industrial Metals complex GDX is weaker. … Continue reading Gold Miners/Copper Miners Ratio Is Interesting

NFTRH; A Few Bullet Points on the State of the Markets (Priority: High)

As noted in the previous (public) post, the VIX looks bullish and does not seem in line with a resumed stock market rally scenario. That can change in an instant, but as of right now I don’t like the look of the VIX if I am a bull. Leadership has been falling off with NDX and SOX having tested their highs (NDX to a bull … Continue reading NFTRH; A Few Bullet Points on the State of the Markets (Priority: High)

USD CoT & Sentiment… and a Revision

USD was in a very good contrary sentiment position into late January, as the global anti-USD inflation trades ripped higher and USD dropped. It then flattened out and formed a bottom and base through some up and down market volatility, and has since put on the inevitable rally that its previous sentiment profile and pro-USD markets like the US Small Caps (which began leading the … Continue reading USD CoT & Sentiment… and a Revision

This morning I made a simple post about gold noting that its status of a higher low to December needs to hold to keep its volatile uptrend intact. So that level (1238.30 to be exact) can be used as a ‘stop loss’ on a … Continue reading NFTRH; A Value Proposition in Gold & Silver (med. priority)

“Gold Continues its Decline After Bearish Death Cross”

The title quote was found written on a chart of gold at Bloomberg, referring to the daily chart’s cross of the 50 day moving average below the 200 day moving average. But a “Death Cross” is more often than not a precursor to a bounce or even a significant rally when the cross happens with both moving averages trending up, which they are doing on … Continue reading “Gold Continues its Decline After Bearish Death Cross”

INGN: The Biggest ‘Valuation’ Pig I know Of in the Stock Market

I am short this medical “device” company not because of its chart, which is finally starting to at least give a hint of negativity… …but because of its valuation, especially as the valuation relates to its product, which is Oxygen Concentrators.  Those are not medical devices, they are boxes stuffed with valves, manifolds and tubes that manage oxygen delivery. Here is some Robo-analysis from Simply … Continue reading INGN: The Biggest ‘Valuation’ Pig I know Of in the Stock Market

Aftermath of the Latest Bonds/Yields Media Hype Campaign

None other than “BOND KING” Bill Gross was served up on a platter (along with side orders of Dalio, Tudor Jones and Gundlach) for mainstream financial media readers to consume. “New Bond Bear Market!” they trumpeted, as yields were going to do something they have not done int decades!
