House of Cards – QE, Interest Rates & The Boom That’s Bust 14th June 2019

Suppose you were born in the 1950’s, except for some small recessions along the way and two larger stock market crashes, you would have only seen economic growth, prosperity as well as huge growth in overall production. When you live in those circumstances, you can’t seriously consider a completely different scenario to the one that’s always been. After a short period of crisis, you could’ve reasonably assumed a fresh wave of economic growth and the party would once again continue….

Bitcoin Isn’t A Bubble – Our Financial System Is 14th May 2019

You would be hard pressed to not read a mainstream article each week over the last few years that doesn’t make mention to bitcoin being a modern day ‘tulip bubble’. Some articles merely hint at it being one, whilst many outright declare its indisputably a bubble set to burst. I agree, there is a bubble set to burst but its not Bitcoin. Bubbles aren’t the same as speculative build ups over the course of weeks or months. Prices do swing…

Is Gold Repatriation A Sign Of A Coming Crisis? 8th May 2019

Since the end of WW2, many countries around the world have used the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England as the main depositories of their gold reserves. With the onset of the Cold War, this was done out of necessity to keep hard money assets safe after many countries had found their reserves ransacked and their countries ravaged by war. It also made practical sense to have reserves in diversified locations so you can access to markets should…

Gold and Global Tensions – The Ground Shifts Beneath Global Markets And Few Realise It 25th April 2019

Tectonic shifts in how our world works are rare. When they do occur, they throw up the possibility of profound change and realignment.   In 2008, the world experienced one of the greatest financial turmoils in history due to the accumulation of debt that became unsustainable, markets around the world started crashing and major financial institutions, once thought invincible, started showing signs of collapse. Central banks like the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and the European Central Bank…

Quantitative Easing – Its not Brexit That Will Bring The Next Depression 1st April 2019

QE – What Is It? Just over a decade ago, the global financial system came very close to collapse after years of excessive debt issuance, over leveraging and greed by banks, governments and the public. In desperation, central banks chose a solution that had been used on a limited scale in previous market downturns, and aggressively in Japan since 2001 . The solution was quantitative easing, or QE. Used by the US (the Fed), and the Bank of England (BoE)…

CryptoCurrencies – A Beginners Guide To Digital Assets 29th March 2019

When an asset doubles in value in a matter of months, it tends to attract some attention. If it doubles again, it attracts everyone’s attention. Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency, its meteoric rise has become a mainstay of conversation across the world. At time of writing, the bitcoin price now hovers near €3,500 EUR ($4,000 USD). Unfortunately, while most people may be able to say, “I’ve heard of Bitcoin,” a large percentage of them still aren’t quite sure what it is…

Dec 2018 – CryptoCurrencies – Another Market Low Still Out There 10th December 2018

A bottom is not in, but it might be close. Since dropping in mid November, Bitcoin and Ethereum have been pushing their ending diagonals for further lows. The current diagonals are very extended, beyond the fib range expected, particularly ETH. That being said, we are starting to see an attempt in both to bottom, but unless Bitcoin climbs above €3,550 and/or Ethereum above €100, until then, we can’t rule out seeing one more low.   To recap the previous report, the…

Dec 2018 – Gold & Silver – Was That It? 3rd December 2018

As you can tell from the title of this report, we have a question over whether metals have bottomed. As I stated in last week’s report, whilst I would like to say confidently that metals have bottomed, the truth is there still a few downside patterns still incomplete so until complete or market suggests otherwise, we have to expect lower to come. We tend see markets push to the limits when developing long-term bottoms. Overall, the markets are showing similar…

Nov 2018 – Gold & Silver – Final Declines May Be Underway 12th November 2018

In last week’s report, I highlighted the following: “Should we begin downside follow through this week, and break below the lows struck this past week in Gold [$1,212] and Silver [$14.20], that makes it rather clear that we have begun in the final wave 5 in this 2-year correction. Investors need to be prepared for one more push in both markets to the downside in the coming weeks unless the market shows evidence to suggest otherwise. For those looking at this…

Nov 2018 – CryptoCurrencies – Who Hit The Flush Button? 12th November 2018

Last week I highlighted the following: “It’s tempting to be bullish as market sentiment overall seems confident of higher prices. I am bullish as well, but with the patterns I’ve been following still incomplete to the downside and suggestive of lower lows before a true rally can get underway. It doesn’t mean I have to be right, but I prefer to stay honest to the set-ups I see until the market proves me right or not.” I’m going to keep…
