The Fed's Racetrack: Gold (GLD) vs Stocks (SPY) .. update :vs.CRB : GLD-hr : SPY-hr : GLD/SPYratio / 2 : ab8x5

FLbA40u.gif

 

The Fed's money-printing has maintained confidence in markets - but the money has gone not only into stocks, but also into other areas. For many months, money flowed into commodities like Gold, pushing prices higher even faster than stocks, as the chart above shows. But since Gold's peak in Aug.2011, stocks have outperformed gold. Since then, these two assets have tended to trade counter-cyclically to each other.

 

Ratio: SPX-to-GLD - there's resistance at 200% : ie 2x th3 Gold Price

Date----- : - SPY-  : - GLD- : Ratio : Comment------------
12-29-08 : $86.91 : $86.35 : 1.006 : Chart period begins
09-06-11 : 116.99 : 182.90 : 0.640 : near Gold peak (of $1800
12-02-15 : 208.53 : 100.69 : 2.071 : near Gold low (of $1045.40; GLD: 100.23)
02-11-16 : 182.86 : 119.05 : 1.535 : near SPX low (of $1810.10; SPY: 181.09)
06-30-17 : 241.80 : 118.02 : 2.049 : Latest: may retest R-2.07+ and rollover
=======
Notes: R-0.64 at Gold peak x 1.618= 1.035 / x 1.618 x2 = 2.070 Target for Ratio & SPY peak?

 

"US Stocks-in-Euros" ... SPX-to-FXE or SPY-to-FXE Ratio ... update

This Ratio - SPX to Euros seems to move in a nice clear channel

 

DrBubb's "Early Warning System"

Leading Ratio ... LQD:TLT-Weekly-3yrs : TLT-vsLQD : Copper : HG price : CU price : SPY-10/11 : SMH-6mos

 

I reckon that the LQD-to-TLT ratio should move in harmony with stocks, or maybe LEAD stock moves. If they are moving in different directions, then one should be cautious.  (However, the value of this indicator has become suspect in recent years, after giving some false warnings.)

"GOLD Formula" is : (Fed'l Debt - $4.0 Trillion ) x 119 +$100 : US Govt Debt :: http://www.usgovernmentdebt.us/

The FED must be pleased with the way that money has flowed into stocks, away from Gold. / notes : a b cox cvn


The market is "bipolar", swinging back and forth from a focus on Inflation to Deflation. Bet on swings; and stay flexible. What are bipolar markets? See: http://tinyurl.com/GEI-Manix

Gold's 4-6 months Cycle:

 

The next cycle Low is due any day now /or overdue - and may have come already in early May.

 

GLD: update: end-may: $116.06 +0.44/ UK:GBS: $115.50/ HK-2840: $ 898.5 /7.76= $115.80 : HK-3081: $29.35 r-30.61

GLD.gif : ImgHst.co

 

The longer history of the cycles looked like this: 2013-15 :

 

: Low, Dec.15th,2016: 1129.8 / $103.04 = 10.96 / intraday: 1123/$103= 10.90
Gold-toUSD_zp.png

 

Look what happened after that Dec.2015 Low - a Nice Rally !   And then once again after a Dec. 2016 Low:Gold-toUSD.png

 

In April'17, I said: The Rally "may be petering out in April, and Gold (gold shares and silver), turned lower with bonds."

I anticipated this - and went short, selling Gold positions, and buying puts on TMF, a 3X etf linked to Bond prices.

But this anticipated cyclical low (May/June) either came early, or is coming late - It does not look as distinct (yet!) as prior lows.

So I am relunctant to bet on the Low and Buy at this stage.

 

TMF - this chart was from mid-April

"Rising interest rates, may turnaround the falling dollar, and "put the Kabash" on the rise in Gold..."

These prices tend to move together : TMF, GDX, UGLD, SLV : Bonds, Gold stocks, Gold, and Silver.

And they have been moving in a shared 4-6 months cycle - but this latest dip in Gold has not been accompanied by TMF until this week

 

TMF... 2-yrs : 5-yrs : 6-mos / 10-dthis chart was from mid-April7nuMzVn.gif

:

TMF HAS finally dropped - & with it Bonds, Gold, Gold shares, silver...

TMY is approximately about 9% lower, over just four days

TMF-etc.10d ... update

 : Chart below is updated to 9/01/2017

m46u6D2.gif

: ImgHst.co

 

....prices may be beginning to decouple.

A GAP is opening up between higher Gold, and lower Bond prices - the gap is now about 6% ($100 on Gold) in 10 days

Relative Valuations : Resistance at 200% - Not so futile?  Apparently!

 

SPX -toGold Ratio seems to pull back when it hits 2.0 -

"May happen again soon," I said in early May, and it pulled back from 1.977 ! and then again at 2.012 !

Was I wrong?

In any case, I have bought No Puts yet... Did not pull the Trigger

 

Might we get the exact opposite, and Tony Caldaro believes?

 

STOCKS are very near a Logical Peak

 

In July, U said: "Stocks are... approaching my 'Ideal' Targets"

 

They may have peaked already - as some like Tony Caldaro have suggested.

But ideal looking targets are just ahead :

+ SPX : 2500

+ IWM : $144

 

IWM.png: imghst

 

Caldaro thinks a 3rd-of 3rd POWERFUL UP MOVE may have begun:

 

> https://caldaro.word...day-update-596/

 

Since Tuesday morning’s gap down SPX 2428 opening low the market has now rallied 47-points with only two 6-point pullbacks along the way. The market’s best rally in over a month. The NDX/NAZ are +2.5% for the week, the TRAN/R2K +2.0%, SOX +3.0%, and Biotech +8.0%. Does this broad/steady participation suggest an SPX hourly chart third wave? Despite lots of short-term counts floating around, the market currently appears to be on cruise control. Short term support is at the 2456 and 2444 pivots, with resistance at the 2479 and 2525 pivots. Short term momentum ended the day quite overbought. Best to you NFP trading!

MEDIUM TERM: market inflection point

LONG TERM: uptrend

ARMSTRONG Fans?

 

DGaqDuoXYAExZ6Y.jpg

 

allen kimble says:

Looks like you’re a fan of Martin Armstrong?

I suggest you listen to him on the coming correction/scare(this fall) and then the slingshot higher thereafter. I hope you’d change your losing short position after this.

 

Allen,
I’m confused. Armstrong’s business cycle shows a peak (in November 2017?) and then a big decline all the way in 2020. How do you read the slingshot higher and when will it be?

I have trouble understanding the Armstrong charts.

Thanks in advance,

Joseph

 
allen kimble says:

Hi Joseph,

Martin Armstrongs cycles are not used to be in 100% correlation with the stock market, even though the last crisis(2007-2008)did. According to Martin. Late 2015 was a turning point in people around the world starting to wake up and distrust government. Thus people will be putting their money into private assets (stocks) to shield themselves from the impending government downtrend. Again, according to Martin, in order to start the “REAL” bubble in assets prices there must be a fake move down. That fake move down appears to be some time this fall. After the fake move there should be a slingshot move higher created by the energy from the down move. So in conclusion his thesis is that once government starts to crack, bond yields from around the world will go higher as investors start to flee these instruments in fear governments might collapse. In turn the stock market will go for awhile until it’s unsustainable and then they have to sell private assets(stocks..etc)to maintain or satisfy margin calls. Then…and only then will this time be met with a massive crash. After the bubble rise.

Now……This is what should happen but things have a strange way of just never crashing….banks get bailout…people are continuing buying government debt…etc……Even Martin says it might be delayed until 2030. Tricky..tricky…as always lol

 
  • The 2030’s fit precisely with our work.
    The Protest secular cycle, like the late-1960’s to early-1980’s.
    Rising inflation, rising rates, distrust of gov’t big time, and nearly two decades of sideways stock markets.

     
    • mjtplayer says:

      Tony, according to Martin, the next crisis will be 2018-2020, a monetary crisis in Europe. This is the beginning of the loss of confidence in government. Europe first, the US last closer to 2032

       
  • Perfect! Thanks so much for explaining that well Allen.I could never get that from the small bits and snippets I heard/read from Armstrong before, likely because I only had access to disconnected bits. This clears it up for me. Now I only need the actual times

Peso-euro rate weakens 17% year-to-date

By Wilson Sy (The Philippine Star) | September 4, 2017 - 12:00am
 
peso-B.jpg

 

The main reason why the peso has weakened substantially against the euro this year is because of the extraordinary strength of euro.  The euro is one of the best performing currencies this year.

Reasons why euro is strong

There are a number of reasons why the euro is surprisingly strong this year.  We enumerate them below:

1) Broad-based economic recovery in the Eurozone – Led by Germany which expanded 2.1 percent in 2Q17, the Euro area is growing at its fastest pace since the 2012 EU sovereign debt crisis.

2) Growth continues to surprise to the upside – The euro area economy is poised to achieve above potential growth over the next two years, according to Moody’s.  In contrast to the upgrades in EU growth outlook, the US growth outlook has revised downwards.

3) Unemployment at eight-year lows – Unemployment rate in the Euro area is at an eight-year low of 9.1 percent in July 2017.   In the case of Germany, the unemployment rate of 4.1 percent is at multi-decade lows.

4) Exports hit record highs – Exports grew eight percent in the first six months of 2017 on the back of vehicle and machinery exports.  EU enjoys a trade surplus of EUR 107.7 billion vs. its trading partners

Hedging Rules okay?

 

Bitcoin $4800-5000?  Looks possible now ... 6-mos :

Bitcoin prices hit my Target on Bitmex, and I am now fully hedged (again).

Unfortunately, I got thrown out of my previous "hedged position" at the wrong time, and experienced heavy "rollcosts".

Thus, over the last 2-3 months saw an erosion in my NAV from $4000 to $3100.  It has since recovered to $3600.

But I now have some doubts about the ability to hedge effectively through Bitmex

of my NAV down from

Why gold is up today ... +$13. to $1337

 

t24_au_en_usoz_6.gif

 

This could explain it.

 

Kim’s regime claimed on Sunday it successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb that can fit onto an intercontinental ballistic missile, advancing its quest to be able to hit the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. Earlier in the day it said it now had a bomb with a maximum force topping 100 kilotons -- more than six times the magnitude of what the U.S. detonated over Hiroshima.

Regardless of whether it was actually a hydrogen bomb, the explosion was big enough to “pretty much end an American city” if strapped on an ICBM, according to Vipin Narang, an associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who focuses on nuclear issues. That makes it harder for either the U.S. or China to force Kim to back down, he said.

Tony C on stocks - the importance of Trannies

 

trandaily.png?w=1000&h=

 

We have spent the past two-three weeks reviewing various indices for potential market headwinds to our long-term bullish scenario. The Transports, which we will continue to track in the weekly update, displays a potential completed 5/9 wave bull market at the recent TRAN 9764 high. Since this index often tops months before the general indices, a completed bull market would suggest there are only months left in the general bull market. To confirm the bearish scenario a drop below TRAN 8744 would have to occur. There is the possibility, however, that Major wave 5 (8744-9764) was only Intermediate wave i of Major 5. An uptrend confirmation, then rally to new highs in the TRAN, would suggest the general bull market will not end soon, but continue to extend.

INDU to Gold still in Long term Slide?

 

Hmm if gold clears $1400, then that's a 2 year new high. North Korea's H-bomb detonation today could be the catalyst. This could be the end of the stock bull run, and a resumption of the dow/gold run to 1-1 ratio.

Top or Dip?

 

It is very possible we HAVE seen a Major Top

 

 

$5000-ish was an obvious "ultimate" target - which I identified when the price rose thru $4600.

Now the sell off is heavy

Bitcoin dips another $300 after China’s cryptocurrency crackdown

  • Bitcoin hit a low of $4,037 Tuesday - falling by more than $300 - as it continued to digest a Chinese clampdown on cryptocurrencies
  • The latest drop indicates a 20 percent fall following the coin's $5,000 high over the weekend
  • Several Chinese regulators announced a ban on initial coin offerings (ICOs) on Monday

Bitcoin fell by another $300 on Tuesday after the fallout of a Chinese ban on cryptocurrency crowdfunding methods saw the price of the digital coin slump earlier this week.

The virtual currency fell from $4,584 to $4,350 on Monday...

"The price action has certainly been led by this Chinese salvo - but healthy profits and moving traders to take gains off the table too until the panic calms," Charles Hayter, chief executive and founder of digital currency comparison website CryptoCompare, told CNBC via email.

The bitcoin analyst said that the cryptocurrency crackdown was expected due to "irrational excesses" in the Chinese market.

Clinton Still Feebly Trying to "Resist" Something, Spouts Off about Laughable Meme Website

 

This (new) attempt to the Left to control things may (again) backfire.

Styx finds much humor in the Left's ham-fisted efforts

 

"I'm still not seeing anyone, apart from Bernie Sanders maybe, who can take on Trump"

 

"You've got an echo chamber they built...

This goes with all the other echo chambers at Youtube, Facebook, Google, etc.

But it is less user friendly.  Who is going to use it?

What about being for all people?  This is only for those who voted for Hillary"

 

See, Hillary's new Propaganda machine, Verrit:
