Calif Polls

Posted by goldielocks @ 23:54 on June 5, 2018  

So far Newsom a Demo who wants to double the tax, increase property tax and against the gas tax repeal a real creep and Cox a republican against all those taxes in the lead of two runners not dependent on party. Was hoping the only two Republicans would be in the lead and at the same time feared it might split the vote.

Even a tiny drop, such as witnessed last February, always results in an ever larger flood of money and new record highs. I don’t believe stocks will ever crash again,

I just don’t believe stocks are capable of correcting anymore (no sarcasm). I’ve heard about the immanent stock crash, that never comes, for years. It doesn’t matter where the money comes from, all that matters is it always comes. Even a tiny drop, such as witnessed last February, always results in an ever larger flood of money and new record highs. I don’t believe stocks will ever crash again, I would sooner believe the Sahara desert could transform into a jungle.

My 401K is now 100% stocks and I have zero fear of even a tiny market drop. My bigger fear was the drop in the value of money and by holding all of my wealth in stocks I no longer have that fear. Jerry Powell and company have my back, any hint of a market drop and the Fed will ride to the rescue. Stocks and Real Estate are 100% insured by the Federal Reserve – it’s too late for me to afford even a modest condo in my area ($800K +) but at least I’m fully and safely invested in the stock market.

Individual stock market caps have gone from thousands to millions to billions and now trillions – Quadrillion market cap companies will arrive soon enough. S&P 500 –> 3000 before the end of June and to surpass 3500 by year end – if you were to ask Ben, Janet or Jerry I’m sure they would agree.

As long as zeros are cheap stocks never will be.

How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb, I mean market, spelled F-E-D.

When liquidity dries up and it’s time to sell there will be no buyers.
Markets will go from one circuit breaker to the other.
Then markets will be closed for days because of the chaos.
Central banks will do QE4 QE5, helicopter money and the financial system will eventually break down.
Just buy a crystal ball and you will see the same.

After being wrong on almost all it’s doomsday predictions the last 9 years, I guess the blind squirrel known as ZH is about to find a nut. Congrats. Too bad stocks are up 300% and gold is down 30% in that period.

You may be correct when you say That’s why PM’s are F’d.

I do know that if you have friends or family call a broker and say they want to invest in gold and silver – the broker – will certainly try to sell GLD, SLV, GDX to them instead of any individual stock of a company.  They will explain how dangerous it is to buy individual stocks when you don’t have to worry about picking a stock when you can buy MANY by buying GDX.

I have this dream that the black boxes and algo’s turn positive one of these days in PM’s and WE ALL reach the Promised Land.  I HAVE A DREAM !

re part:

“existing owners are selling while the number of new gold investors just fell to fresh multi-year lows.” “last month saw the lowest number of new precious-metal investors since May 2014. Down 27.7% from the previous 12-month average”

Comment: Ahhh, finally we are getting near a gold bottom? No. The gold bottom was late 2015. Even with very little buying. So its a bottom for demand only not price. Sounds good to me.

That may be true, however the ones that are in this market are bullish as hell. Can’t get enough of those GDX, NUGT, GLD, and SLV calls.

That’s why PM’s are F’d.

Gold Investing Goes AWOL As Google Searches To ‘Buy Gold’ Hit 11-Year Low

Shutterstock

Gold investing is often seen as a barometer of fear and financial stress.

But while the bullion price has responded to 2018’s stock market drops and geopolitical tensions so far, appetite for gold is in fact weakening among private investors overall.

2018 has already seen gold trade above $1300 per ounce on more days than all of 2016 and 2017 combined. Yet instead of embracing this uptrend, existing owners are selling while the number of new gold investors just fell to fresh multi-year lows.

Last month in fact saw the fewest Google searches to “buy gold” since July 2007 – the eve of the global financial crisis.

BullionVault via Google Trends

Chart of Google search volumes for ‘buy gold’, worldwide, in English, finance category

The giant SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEArca:GLD) shrank 4% across May, erasing the previous two months of share issuance growth with the heaviest 1-month outflow since August last year.

The US Mint meantime reports selling 24,000 ounces of American Eagle gold coins, up sharply from April’s 10-year low as dealers re-stocked inventory but still barely half the last 5 years’ average for May.

Here at BullionVault, last month saw the lowest number of new precious-metal investors since May 2014. Down 27.7% from the previous 12-month average, the number of people using our online gold, silver and platinum market for the first time totalled just 57.2% of the last 5 years’ average monthly count of new customers.

Overall, the number of people starting or increasing their gold holdings rose 12.1% from April’s 27-month low, but the number of gold sellers on BullionVault rose 22.8% to a 4-month high.

Yeah me too I sure hope it’s true. Yep it makes sense for Putin to keep it under his hat.

If it is true you’d think it would start having a major influence on the price …

if putin’s buying gold and unloading dollars, the last thing he would want to do is announce it widely – until he has as much gold as he wants.  such an announcement, or backing russia’s currency with gold would be likely (imo) to raise the pog and drop the po$.  perhaps sharply!

he may be setting up to do that, but is still playing a waiting game to get as many ounces as possible for the $ he has to spend….

….when (if ever?) would he decide he has enough?  that’s the question!!  i suspect he’s playing his cards close to his vest

“No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold.

Putin is not shouting about it all over the world.”

He’s definitely not shouting about it, although even if he were I doubt western media would report it. I sure wish he’d back the ruble with gold or silver, that might help to take the pricing mechanism out of the criminal banksters hands.

First I’ve heard that he was selling for gold…

Grandmaster Putin’s Golden Trap

Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.

No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold.

Putin is not shouting about it all over the world. And of course, he still accepts US dollars as an intermediate means of payment. But he immediately exchanges all these dollars obtained from the sale of oil and gas for physical gold!

To understand this, it is enough to look at the dynamics of growth of gold reserves of Russia and to compare this data with foreign exchange earnings of the RF coming from the sale of oil and gas over the same period.

The Smart Money’s Bailing As Market Complacency Surges

The turbulence throughout the markets last week – thanks to Italy – has given investors their first taste of a frothy summer.
Especially the ‘smart money’- they’re bolting for the exits
The Smart Money Flow Index (SMFI) is a leading-indicator in markets. That means when the SMFI drops sharply, usually the equity markets are right behind it.
And we haven’t seen the SMFI drop this much since the Great Recession of 2008 and the 2001 Recession. . .
What’s going on?
Last week I wrote about the forgotten economist – Hyman Minsky – and his excellent work about the Financial Instability Hypothesis (FIH), which details how an economy shifts through three stages.
From lowest risk to highest risk the stages are: hedged, speculative, and ponzi.
But probably the most important takeaway from the FIH is this simple sentence. . .
The periods of low volatility and market calm are the seeds for high volatility and market chaos in the future; then back the other way around.

Will Trump Fire John Bolton Next?

After he nearly scuttled the historic talks with North Korea by hinting that Kim Jong Un could face a fate similar to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, National Security Advisor John Bolton is being sidelined by President Trump ahead of the historic June 12 summit in Singapore, CNN reports.

According to the report, several senior administration officials have lost their patience with Bolton and his hawkish approach to North Korea, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has pushed to limit Bolton’s role in the upcoming summit, saying it would be “counterproductive” for Bolton to attend certain Oval Office meetings.

Like Trump, Pompeo was reportedly livid following Bolton’s now-infamous Fox News Sunday interview, and in an angry confrontation Pompeo accused the moustached neo-con of trying to scuttle the talks for his own selfish reasons.
