Canada Ignores U.S. Market Manipulation to its Own Detriment

The decrepit state of the resource exploration business in Canada is a direct outcome of American-sponsored market manipulation and subsidies. Who can argue with the fact that investors are going to flock to a market whose downside risk is diminished by a monthly capital injection equivalent to roughly 6.3% of annual U.S. GDP? Who is going to risk money in the structurally deficient equity market in Canada on a company exploring for gold when gold is routinely manipulated downward in […]

Fed Taper Will Induce Market Swoon

The experiment with easing the Fed teat out of the mouths of U.S. corporations and markets that is expected within a couple of hours here is the Big Event this week. Will markets crap out on what will likely end up being a reduction in Fed “asset” buying?

Holdings of so-called short contracts retreated 9.2 percent, the […]

U.S. Economy in Deflation on 5 Fronts – Gary Shilling

Of the seven varieties of deflation, five are already at work in the US economy. Here are the seven varieties and the ways they are playing out. 1. Commodity deflation In 2009 and 2010, increases in commodity prices revived memories of the 1970s inflation spiral that resulted from the earlier mushrooming costs of the Vietnam War and the Great Society programmes. Speculators and investors further inflated that bubble. Many pension and endowment funds, as well as individuals, became convinced that […]

Defeat of Position Limits Direct Threat to Precious Metals Potential

I can’t say as I’m surprised by the announcement late Friday that lobbyists representing JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley, among others, had successfully obtained a judgement quashing the proposed position limits on speculative traders in commodities. According to Bloomberg: “U.S. District Judge Robert Wilkins in Washington today ruled that the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act is unclear as to whether the agency was ordered by Congress to cap the number of contracts a trader can have in oil, natural gas […]
