A Market Perspective

By Dennis Tubbergen | Jan 17, 2022 | 0 Comments

          The potential double top in stocks theory that I put out a couple weeks ago is still holding after last week’s price action in stocks.           While it remains too early to tell, there are many signs that the stock market may be ready to decline.  It is my view that most of the … Continue reading “A Market Perspective”

Financial Markets, the Economy and Currency Creation

By Dennis Tubbergen | Jan 10, 2022 | 0 Comments

            My ‘double top’ theory from last week is holding true so far, but we will wait and see.  If you missed last week’s post, a double top is a bearish formation where prior market highs are approximately reached but no new highs are made.             At this point, it’s too early to tell.             … Continue reading “Financial Markets, the Economy and Currency Creation”

My Thoughts on Stocks as We Begin a New Year

By Dennis Tubbergen | Jan 3, 2022 | 0 Comments

Last week, stocks touched their all-time high levels from November completing a “Santa” rally.  At this point, it remains to be seen what this means.  Since my long-term stock trend-following indicators are negative, I’d have to bet on a double top, which is a bearish pattern, but time will tell. January is typically an important … Continue reading “My Thoughts on Stocks as We Begin a New Year”

Inflation and Deflation Perspectives

By Dennis Tubbergen | Dec 27, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Despite last week’s rally in stocks, the highs of mid-November remain the market’s high point.  As I have been noting, my long-term, trend-following indicators remain negative.           This past week, I began to read the most recent book by James Turk, a past guest on my radio program.  Mr. Turk’s book is titled, “Money … Continue reading “Inflation and Deflation Perspectives”

About Stocks and Bonds

By Dennis Tubbergen | Dec 20, 2021 | 0 Comments

          The stock market highs of November have not yet been taken out and my long-term trend-following indicators continue to become more bearish.  At this point, a “Santa” rally looks less likely especially given the Fed’s recent statements about accelerating the taper or slowing the rate of currency creation.           As the longer-term readers of … Continue reading “About Stocks and Bonds”

A Predictable Pattern

By Dennis Tubbergen | Dec 13, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Stocks rallied last week although they remain off their highs of about one month ago.  Unless these prior highs are taken out, we view the current stock trend as down.  We will have to wait and see if a year-end Santa rally can bring the market to new highs.           Longer-term, I am bearish … Continue reading “A Predictable Pattern”

Will the Fed Taper?

By Dennis Tubbergen | Dec 6, 2021 | 0 Comments

          Stocks continued their rough stretch last week.  While we could see a Santa Claus rally this month as we often do as the year comes to a close, given how extended stocks are from what would be considered to be more ‘normal’ levels, we may not experience the traditional year-end rally.           Last week, … Continue reading “Will the Fed Taper?”

Math Doesn’t Lie – Why Taper Talk is Just Talk

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”

Pension Plan Problems?

By Dennis Tubbergen | Nov 22, 2021 | 0 Comments

          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”
