2 year treasury bond yield and 3 month T-bill yield

If you’re a nerd, you find this amazing

2 year Treasury bond yield continues to diverge T-bills Well, this nerd is amazed by it (and several other out of whack macro indicators), at least. The 3 month T-bill yield (close companion to the Fed Funds rate) continues to steam upward in a divergence to the 2 year Treasury bond yield.

Golden Cross bull signals in gold stocks!

Golden Cross bull signals have just been announced by a gold stock always-bull Look, I said I was going to back off directly criticizing smaller promoters in the markets and in particular the gold cult “community” (as it calls itself).

Are we on plan or what?

Inflation signals and economy fading/decelerating as expected That which was built of inflation will deconstruct with inflation’s fade. That’s the rough plan, anyway. It’s important to remember that short-term phases measured in days or even weeks will do what they will do. But the 2023 picture is for inflationary fears, which were so 2021-2022, to fade and along with it the inflated economy (circa 2020) … Continue reading Are we on plan or what?

The gold price as adjusted by major currencies

Gold in global currencies, looking good

Gold price is trending up vs. major global currencies The corrections will come to the nominal gold price, but a real bull market will need participation vs. all major currencies and that is what is happening currently.

The exception is the Japanese Yen, which got clobbered in … Continue reading Gold in global currencies, looking good

Q4-Q1 rally regains its mojo, led by the miners

Copper and Gold miners are leading the Q4-Q1 rally in broad asset markets Back in October we began to plan the prospect of a relief rally that would be fueled by over-bearish sentiment (contrary bullish), ‘Fed hawk’ relief as we anticipated inflation signals to ease, and a post (mid-term) election seasonal pattern that is bullish for stocks. This public article had a lot to say … Continue reading Q4-Q1 rally regains its mojo, led by the miners

Strategy is working well so far

It’s the Q4-Q1 relief play, baby It’s getting easier and easier now to be bullish, but that is the product of FOMO* in the herds. Hence, today was my last day of buying** fallen items across, in order of preference and general acquisition, the Precious Metals, Emerging Markets, outlier/specialty Commodities, select US sectors and Energy (yup, Energy, the formerly “last inflated man standing”) off of … Continue reading Strategy is working well so far

2 year treasury bond yield, S&P 500 and 3 month T-bill yield

Putting the 2 year Treasury bond yield in context

The 2 year Treasury bond yield, T-bill and S&P 500 beg multiple interpretations I called the 2 year Treasury bond yield the most important chart in the world the other day to poke fun at those who use such hyperbole to make a (likely biased) point, but  also to illustrating a likely topping situation in the 2 year yield. Below is the 2 year Treasury … Continue reading Putting the 2 year Treasury bond yield in context

2 year Treasury bond yield

The most important chart in the world!

Just kidding. It’s a reference to some gold bug man staring at a gold chart… …many years ago, labeling it “the most important chart in the world”. Some things just stick with me. 2 year Treasury bond yield is important across the macro Yes, it is very important because it has been a primary guide for the Fed to get (tardy though they were) and … Continue reading The most important chart in the world!
