FYI, Rick Ackerman commenting here on gold (and Apple)

Just a heads up that a guy I’ve known of and respected for many years has been commenting on this post from Monday about the negative divergences to inflation: Not inflation friendly I note it because if one of the typical gold bug knuckleheads had shown up here I’d be disappointed. But a guy who goes his own way and calls it as he sees … Continue reading FYI, Rick Ackerman commenting here on gold (and Apple)

Not inflation friendly

A few inflation unfriendly pictures while everyone huddles on that side of the boat I don’t know. Maybe they’ve obsoleted contrarian theory. Cancel culture and all. But just in case they haven’t there are these pictures to consider. There are more, but this gives the tenor of the situation from a contrary perspective. 2yr Treasury note is firm and diverging upward by RSI. Doctor Copper … Continue reading Not inflation friendly

Copper, copper miners and the Gold/Silver ratio

Copper and copper miners breaking bad I looked at FCX and thought about buying it as it got dropped to a higher low at the SMA 200. Today it has dropped below it (still a higher low to January’s low). I’d be interested, except that the Copper Miners ETF looks even more suspect and the good Doctor himself is threatening a breakdown… DESPITE booming jobs, … Continue reading Copper, copper miners and the Gold/Silver ratio

Not to be outdone, the Gold/Silver Ratio…

Gold/Silver ratio breakout continues apace Slowly it toined (last week man stared at chart while stuck on an airplane at JFK, Brooklyn accent appropriately included)… …and today it continues to break upward. Folks, if you don’t have your chops in order about what an upturn in gold vs. silver, copper and the rest of more inflation-sensitive (and in most cases, cyclical) stuff means you should … Continue reading Not to be outdone, the Gold/Silver Ratio…

Doctor Copper: Finally the breakdown?

As the Copper price finally makes a move that could lead to implosion (this time?) It’s a hard break below the SMA 200 and maybe this time the good doctor will prescribe a counter-cycle. Not so curiously, gold is getting blown up this morning (not quite yet to our downside targets) but oh wait, look at the old monetary man vs. the inflated economic doctor. … Continue reading Doctor Copper: Finally the breakdown?

2022: Still “the golden year”

Gold is following a logical path in 2022 Reference this article posted on 12.30.21: 2022: The Golden Year Gold has done nothing unusual and in fact it has done as would normally be expected. In February it began to rally out of the base on the daily (futures) chart below. Driven by war (easy on the war, terror and pestilence bull rationales dear gold bugs) … Continue reading 2022: Still “the golden year”

Copper/Gold ratio continues to be macro unfriendly

Cu/Au bent but not quite broken Wallowing below the moving averages, the Copper/Gold ratio is vulnerable. It’s a vulnerability that has been in play before to no damaging effect to the cyclical inflation trades. But these things take forever (and a day) compared to our flitting brain waves firing off signals in real time. Once again, the ‘reminder’ chart about the big picture macro. The … Continue reading Copper/Gold ratio continues to be macro unfriendly
