Recently, dairy cooperatives (producers who work together and serve as middlemen between the farms and processors of dairy products) settled a class-action lawsuit for $52 million for working to reduce dairy cattle numbers, which would limit the supply of milk products. Why would farmers do this in the first place?Dairy farms More ››

A A Home | Feed | Blog.rssAre High Taxes in Northern States Ruining Baseball? 0 Views 49 min agoWith another Sunday come and gone, the sports media has noticed that ratings for NFL football are slumping. This is a problem not just for the NFL but for TV stations who have long depended on live sports — and NFL games in particular — as something to hang over the heads of viewers who are increasingly abandoning cable and satellite TV in favor of services like Netflix. Since live TV is largely exclusive to more traditional television providers, NFL football has been More ››

That question and other ones similar to it keep coming up lately and understandably so. Gold usually drops when the USD rises, but lately we do see both rising at the same time. I called a low in Gold recently and have been trading in the Precious Metals sector, but some are having a hard time believing it when they see the USD rising too. Allow me to share my thoughts on this. The following 4 charts are from the weekend report, where I tried to help my readers see the answer that question. More ››

The word disaster represents an opportunity for the astute investor. It is only the uneducated investor that views a market pullback through a negative lens, and this is usually done because they have not taken the time to study the markets. One would be well served if one spent some time in examining the history of stock market crashes and what was taking place before the markets crashed. In every instance, one will find out that the crowd was bullish and every Tom, Dick and Harry was busy giving out financial advice. When the crowd is happy, you More ››

It's just like the ‘Dirty 30's'. People are broke and credit is about to dry up. So precious metal shares can only rally (so far) in ‘fits and starts' as various polices are attempted. Again, the next monetarist salvo should be QE for the stock market (Fed monitizing stocks), and then helicopter money; and, if Trump gets in, his proposed tax cuts would figure into the equation as well. First we need the excuse for all this however, which won't happen until after the election, when interest rates spike higher and equity bubbles burst. More ››

China's currency, the Chinese Yuan, remains pegged to the US Dollar. So when the US Dollar strengthens, the Chinese Yuan strengthens to. For an economy as rife with garbage debt as China (shadow banking debt is over 200% of GDP), this is a DISASTER. With that in mind, consider that the US Dollar is now at 99. More ››
