The administration cannot let stocks go down much…that would mean the dems win

Posted by Richard640 @ 18:16 on August 16, 2019  

in 2020 and the nation as we know it would cease to exist…unless martial law was declared…

Captain–not at all! I took no offense….the CNN greed/fear index registered. extreme feat this a.m.-

Posted by Richard640 @ 18:01 on August 16, 2019  

Not sure this is THEE bottom for rates but I think they could have a good bounce from here cause I think stocks are ready to have a strong bounce….from Wolanchuks blog today=

Wow! The CNN fear/greed index went DOWN from 19 to 17 this AM. Now that is insane. It will no doubt adjust and end up up for the day but this dip early in the AM shows how negative the sentiment got. AMD , my main holding, is rocketing. A good sign for the overall market since it was a rocketship when the market was strong


Because they are still trying to sell the rally. Have a look at the P/C ratio.

Of course, this is even more contrarian bullish over the next few days.


dow up 286 but the sp500 up the equivalent of 400 dow pts [WOLLIE]

Russell 2000 up more than that.

R6 – interesting bet – but I agree

Rates in the U.S. are now going to zero like the rest of the world, the bond market is forcing the Fed’s hand.

You should probably bank on that trade, maybe even sooner than you think.

I don’t see how the Fed does anything less than a .5% rate cut in Sept. Anything less will force rates down even further.

With regards to Bob Hoye….who knows…he has the Cabal on his side…

Sorry if that came off the wrong way.

Especially to one of the ballsest traders on this board.

We know you know that.


Buygold–Captain–LOL–take it. up. with Hoye–I’m just. the messenger

Posted by Richard640 @ 16:10 on August 16, 2019  

If today. is the worst we have to endure,  then we. have nothing to fear from a correction–also, don’t forget that a great part of this rally. saw gold go up WITH. stocks…remember we were talking about. Wolanchuk being correct when he said that stocks and gold go up together–so if stocks have bottomed gold could still rise…as for the dread “higher rates”remember that. when gold peaked in 1980,  it took. a what??

a 12% or. 16% 30 year t-bond tp stop the rally!!

Bob Hoye’s COT’s

Posted by Buygold @ 15:50 on August 16, 2019  

Silver looks a bit bullish I dunno.

Gold pretty much the same.


Small caps are getting unduly hit and have been for the last couple of days

Posted by Buygold @ 14:55 on August 16, 2019  

at the risk of making a fool of myself – I just picked up some FSM – Fortuna Silver

If we’re really in a new bull this stuff should snap back.

NEM is up today – go figure.

Well shucks R6

Posted by Buygold @ 13:49 on August 16, 2019  

COT’s have been a mess for at least a couple of months now so Hoye has no argument there.

Maybe Gold is hosed because of the COT’s, I’m just wondering what will happen when the dollar catches up to the falling interest rates.

Course gold and silver ARE the most manipulated markets on the planet. How else could the COT’s be explained?

I’m looking for China to come out either this weekend or next saying they are going to dump US treasuries.

We’ll see what happens.

I’m sure those are all valid concerns, however everywhere I look across the sector I see no froth what so ever. And like Rick Rule said on the Sprott podcast today, participation rates in PM’s are still only one fifth of the 30-year average.

What this means is just to get back to the 30-year average, aggregate investor participation in the sector needs to quintuple in years to come — and far more to return to the 1980 peak.

So some crazy things in the overbought department should be both anticipated and welcomed — not feared at this point.

Peddle to the metal.

Pun intended.

COT, Exhaustion and TD Combo Alerts in Gold

The last time we reported on the COT readings in gold was near the bottom on August 19, 2018; “Specs in Gold are Now Net Short – Daily Sequential & Combo Buys in GLD”. As of August 6, 2019 the Commercial and Speculative positions have reached levels not seen since the gold top in 2016.

While absolute levels of Commercial and Speculative positions are important, we are more interested in the excesses seen in the action around important reversals. The COT signals we utilize are reasonably rare, looking for the RSI(14) in both to be at an extreme while they are outside their Bollinger Bands(50,2). These criteria are in place now.


Last week saw a $100 rally, staying overbought and ‘Exhausted” for five consecutive days.
As of Friday, it has a completed TD Combo 13 Countdown, last seen around the January high. The Sequential countdown is at 12. One more

Geez, maybe $1500 and $17 are in jeopardy after all.

*BofA Merrill’s Ciana Says Yield Curve Could Invert 50 Basis Points, Gold May Hit $2,300

*30-year Treasury bond yield falls below 2% level for first time

Aug 14, 2019 11:12 p.m. ET


After falling to an all-time low Wednesday, the 30-year U.S. Treasury bond yield TMUBMUSD30Y, -2.13% dropped under the 2% level for the first time early Thursday in Asian trading. The longest-dated Treasury bond dropped to 2.06% during U.S. trading, and was last at 1.97%. The 30-year yield’s previous all-time low was set in July 2016, when it touched 2.09% after the U.K.’s Brexit vote. Debt prices move in the opposite direction of yields.

Unless you count tofu-eating, milquetoast, pantywaist, beta, snowflake, self-flagellating, Mom’s-basement-dwelling, environmental science graduates as men

A lecture, furthermore, from a child who hasn’t finished her schooling, whose frontal lobes haven’t formed, who has no sense of humour, whose every utterance is the second-hand opinion of alarmist grown-ups whose doomsday claims she is completely unequipped to assess?

No kind of man that I know of, that’s for sure. Unless you count tofu-eating, milquetoast, pantywaist, beta, snowflake, self-flagellating, Mom’s-basement-dwelling, environmental science graduates as men.

Which I’m not sure I do — and  they probably wouldn’t identify as men, anyway, so I don’t think I’m being judgemental here. I’d hate to be judgemental because that would be wrong.

Housing starts weak

Good for a buck or two in gold, but starting to fade it now.

Could be a gap n’ crap day for the SM but I defer to Captain Hook and R640 on that one.

Interest rates slowly creeping up with the USD, but still down a little from yesterday.

OpEx fun day

Posted by Buygold @ 7:56 on August 16, 2019  

Looks like silver will have to do the heavy lifting if we’re going to have any chance today.

At least we should finish the week comfortably above $1500 and $17

Gold Train

Evolution of the Bullet Train – Shinkansen

I have ridden the first generation bullet, and the newer split-level ‘Max’ (not shown) in Japan.  You can step up to the mark on the platform and set your watch by the arrival and doors opening… always within 30 seconds of schedule.  If the train is more than two minutes late, they refund your ticket price!  Japan knows how to do high speed rail transport to perfection.
