By Dennis Tubbergen | Nov 29, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Stocks had a rough day on Black Friday.  Even though markets were only open for half a day, on an intraday basis the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1000 points.  The Industrials closed down 905 points for the day.  The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ had ugly days as well.           In the “Positions” … Continue reading “Math Doesn’t Lie – Why Taper Talk is Just Talk”

          In this weekly post, I comment frequently on Federal Reserve policies largely because Fed policy is the primary driver of economic and investing conditions.           Over the past dozen years or so, the Fed has created currency literally from thin air, a process known as quantitative easing, and has kept interest rates at artificially … Continue reading “Pension Plan Problems?”

Inflationary Death Spiral – Part Two

By Dennis Tubbergen | Nov 15, 2021 | 0 Comments

          The economic news continues to concern.           As anyone who has been a long-term reader of my posts knows, when the Federal Reserve began quantitative easing programs, a.k.a. currency creation, I suggested we would ultimately have inflation followed by deflation or should the Fed be tempered in its approach to currency creation, we could … Continue reading “Inflationary Death Spiral – Part Two”

Gold Price Analysis

By Dennis Tubbergen | Oct 25, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Stocks continued their rally last week, with many indexes making new all-time highs by the slimmest of margins.           I noted last week that the ‘gaps up’ on the daily price chart are most often closed by falling prices.  This is still a possibility but last week’s price action muddies up the waters from … Continue reading “Gold Price Analysis”

Is a “Lehman Moment” Approaching?

By Dennis Tubbergen | Oct 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Stocks rallied last week although, as I noted last week, technically speaking, stocks look weak.           Last week, we noted that 4 stock market sectors were lagging.  That was a significant development since all sectors that comprise the Standard and Poor’s 500 were positive going into October; that changed.  It’s also relevant to note … Continue reading “Is a “Lehman Moment” Approaching?”

Corruption at the Fed?

By Dennis Tubbergen | Oct 4, 2021 | 0 Comments

Stocks, by my analysis, weakened even more last week.  The first four trading days of the week were negative followed by a nice rally on Friday.  Despite the rally, technicals in the stock market are breaking down by my measure.           4 of the 11 sectors that comprise the S&P 500 turned negative over the … Continue reading “Corruption at the Fed?”
