and Yellen can spin things anyway she wants but higher interest rates are coming. Sure she just do .25 rate increase or what ever in May, June but the direction is up. Furthermore the economies of China, Japan and Europe are all declining so please do tell me how the U.S. economy keeps everyone afloat with an approaching 18 - 19 trillion dollar debt hanging around its neck. Market is way a head of itself as we get closer to pending rate hikes.
A prominent opponent has warned Vladimir Putin his days in power are numbered, as Russia awaits the president's response to the dramatic decline of the rouble. If Putin doesn't leave soon the Russian economy will totally collapse and Russ will explode higher. My guess is Putin is like the "Captain of the Titanic" and will probably go down with the ship. Of course when Putin bails he still will have 50 billion U.S. dollars tucked away some where. But he might have to use half of that for security protection, since every Russian citizen will want a piece of his hide if he pack up and leaves with his bag of goodies.
Dollar ramps higher well into 2015 as the US economy grows stronger and commodities like gold and oil tank. Its Spock logic, unless you never watched Star Trek.
and many think the so called precious metal could be under $1000 an ounce by late January. TIMBER
if so the stock market must think it know such a word. Many wonder if Yellen will get a "set" today and make the move (the right move) and take the chains off coming interest rate hikes. But the market seems to think the 5' dove will always be true to her weaker half and do nothing. Guess we have to wait for 4% unemployment before Yellen make her (way late) move.
Dow up over 100 with Fed at the plate to take a swing at raising interest rates. Market seems to think pending interest rate hike news is either good or that the Fed won't change anything. So is onto to something here or not seeing the forest for the trees? Sure looks to me at 2 pm market could dive but only time will tell. If anything a better bet is to short gold since any sniff of a mid-summer rate hike will send gold tumbling.
then you throw in Russia and possibly Japan and you know the yellow stuff is going DOWN.
Nope - I'm also shorting GLD. Gold going forward is a dwindling commodity and every one know the dollar will strengthen going forward. When we start seeing some good size gold drops investors will panic and unload their gold holdings as fast as they can.
Because no one holds tvix or uvxy more then a day or two. If you bought at $11 and held you had many sleepless nights. But if you trade in on a daily basis you only make money one way - down. At some point Tvix will spike but I assume no one will be around the next day due to Russian Nukes landing in the fruited plain.
As the deadline for nuclear talks between the P5+1 powers and Iran looms on Monday, Israel is warning it could use military power if a deal doesn't meet with its approval, The Jerusalem Post reports. "Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit," the Post quoted Israeli government sources as saying.
Remember - Israel bows to no one and Iran could be in for a "Big Surprise".
because gold is going down and one "shorts have to cover" this puppy will jump into the high teens. Maybe over $20 a share. Gold is no longer in demand and when the floor falls out watch the big boys dump it as fast as they can.
because I'm now forced to tell investors higher rates are coming and our long lasting "free lunch" is over. With a tear in her eye, the Fed Chairwomen says "so love my lovely dove. I'll always cherish you but going forward its "hawk" time.
Agree and buying more. Putin now in Full Implode Mode, shooting vile threats in all directions. Seems the 5'7" midget wants to take on the world as the Ruble melts into the sunset.
Google it guy. Market is tanking because Yellen just blew up the printing presses and said there will be (NO) considerable delay in raising rates. As in coming mid-2015 or sooner. Market smells it coming thus sells off and no Christmas rally this year. So Sad.
as National Guard spreads through out community, nearby St. Louis and half the state of Missouri. In less then 48 hours you are going to see riots like you have never seen before. And those out of control riots will push Spy back to the $190's if not lower. Oh, where is our Attorney General when we need him???
Look out Boys - Putin going to Invade Ukraine this week.
Amid a crumbling peace plan in Ukraine, NATO has reported Russian troop movement near the Ukrainian border. Meanwhile, Kyiv has vowed to protect eastern cities from the rebels trying to exert power over the region.
