For gold’s outlook to remain bullish, there’s a level that it must not violate. There are still two long picks in the mining stocks, but they have stops that you should honor if they’re broken.
The apparent 6 month cycle upturn remains intact, but here’s why bears can still be expectant and bulls need to protect their assets.
Gold is in a consolidation. Here’s what will signal the next leg up.
Cycle screening measures improved enough last week to hint at an intermediate upturn. We were looking for that so, it all looks good.
Withholding tax collections fell in October. The weakening trend since the tax cut resumed after a brief respite in September. That has all kinds of implications. Here’s what they are, and what they mean to the markets and your investments.

Long term indicators are now signaling a bear market. But the short run could be a different story. Here’s what to look for this week, including the triggers that could accelerate the crash.
Demand for Treasuries at the regular auctions has risen by slightly more than the increase in new issuance lately. But yields continue to trend higher because selling in the secondary market has outstripped demand. With total systemic liquidity waning thanks to the Fed and its central bank cohorts, this is also bad news for stocks, bad news that we have…
Tax collections fell again in September as the Trump Tax Cut continues to bite into federal revenues.

I am writing to you today from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a few hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland. I’m heading for London for a week, and ultimately to Nice, France, where I’m looking forward to spending the winter. It’s a beautiful, lively small city on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. I’m thinking of making my home there. This trip is for exploratory purposes.
As the ship rocked gently through the waves, as often happens in the wee hours of the morning, I awoke thinking about the market. Yes, I know. That’s not normal! I was wondering how the rest of the world viewed the selloff in the US markets on Monday. So I signed into the ship’s WIFI and checked my phone. The CNBC newswire read something like this:
FUTURES RALLY ON EASED TRADE FEARS.
The report predicted a strong open for US stocks.
I smirked and went back to sleep. The overnight markets are like Vegas. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. So goes the pre-market futures trading much of the time.
I checked in again when I woke up for the day and it was the same story. Big rally expected.
Then I went downstairs to the Brittania dining room and enjoyed a nice breakfast. The food and service was delightful as always. I highly recommend a Transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2 for traveling to Europe if you have the time.
I don’t have the time for pure leisure purposes. But I can bring my work along for the ride and I can still communicate regularly with our great publication team, and most importantly, with you. It’s really a lot of fun!
Later, this morning, sometime after 10 AM I again logged into the ship’s satellite WIFI and checked the market. Lo and behold, up…

The US Dollar Swaps curve is kinked at 18 months to 2 years, then is humped beyond 2 years.
The 10Y-2Y swaps spread is behaving in a similar fashion to the 10Y-2Y Treasury curve, nose-diving towards recession.
A renewed surge in strength for the U.S. dollar sunk gold prices over the past week, but we’re about to enter gold’s strongest season of the year.
As the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) made a renewed run to about 97.50, stocks and commodities suffered the con…
Some believe we are headed toward the next great stock market crash.
You can’t stop it.
But you can prepare yourself for just how bad things could get…

The news was one of those instances when you could see they were trying a little too hard. It didn’t make any sense, not anyway in the context to which it was delivered. On September 21, unnamed German officials were supposedly championing a megamerger in the banking sector. The country’s two largest financial institutions might […]
Note from Lee: I have been warning you for months that the stock and bond markets are unsafe. We can’t safely invest for the long term and need to focus on preserving our capital. But we can still make money from them!
There are always ways to profit from the market, regardless of their direction. You can set aside a small part of your capital to trade the market. I give few suggestions for such trades right here in Sure Money from time to time. But there are ways to harvest trading profits regularly. That’s exactly what several of my colleagues here at Money Map Press help you to do.
One of those folks is Tom Gentile.
I’ve been studying Tom’s work was particularly impressed with his Money Calendar. It provides opportunities for big trading profits using just small amounts of risk capital. I’m a bit in awe of the simplicity and genius behind the idea. Why didn’t I think of that!
I’m especially impressed with the years of work and commitment that Tom put into developing this amazingly easy to follow trading method.
The other day, I saw a post by Tom in Money Morning that tells a bit of the fascinating story of how he came to develop the Money Calendar. I’ am reposting it for you here on Sure Money in case you missed it. I think it’s a great intro to one of the best ways for you to extract huge profits from the swings in individual stocks, regardless of market direction! That’s especially useful in the bear market environment that I have warned you about!

Isn’t it obvious that repeating the policies of 2009 won’t be enough to save the system from a long-delayed reset?2019 is shaping up to be the year in which all the policies that worked in the past will no longer work. As we all know, the Global F…
The Dow (DJIA) jumped 545 points (2.1%) in Wednesday’s post-midterms trading. The S&P500’s 2.1% rise was overshadowed by The Nasdaq Comp’s 2.6% and the Nasdaq100’s 3.1% advances. Healthcare stocks surged, with the S&P500 Healthcare Index up 2…
It was a forgettable moment. The Federal Reserve’s Chairman at the time, Janet Yellen, was asked about a key economic statistic and she just couldn’t come up with it. In September 2016, Yellen was on Capitol Hill to testify as she usually did about how things were surely getting better. Rep. Frank Guinta wanted to […]
It’s always a fine line for authorities. There are times when avoiding intervention is more effective than intervention. That’s particularly true when the efficacy of whatever proposed policy is in doubt. If you don’t know for sure that it will work, maybe don’t do it. There are often grave risks associated with plunging forward recklessly. […]
