The Labor Market and the Stock Market

February 1, 2023

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Michele Schneider By the time you read this, the buzz of what the Fed did and Powell’s presser will be over..at least for the day. We will not repeat the obvious. What we are way more focused on is the underlying reasons that the Fed, unless they are willing to goose rates to over 8%, will have little impact on the A) Upcoming Commodities Super-Cycle and B) The unique undefinable labor market which

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


Monday’s rally was the 3rd best performance for the first trading day of October since 1930. When followed by yesterday’s rally, the two-day rally became the strongest since April 2020 when the market was roaring back from the pandemic crash. This rally comes at a very pivotal point in the bear market’s trend as you can see from the weekly chart below. The SPY in the chart is sitting on its 200-week moving average and

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Michele Schneider Monday, the Daily covered some of the warning signs, particularly in the Regional Banks and Transportation sectors. We ended the Daily by writing this: “Transportation and Regional Banks make up nearly 1/3 of the Economic Modern Family.” On their weakness..”Of course, the week is young, so we have time to see if both sectors play catch up or are sending us a meaningful warning message.

This has never ended well for the bulls, but…

March 28, 2022

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


In May of 2021 I outlined a dangerous condition of excessive margin debt that looked remarkably similar to only two other periods in the last 3 decades – 2000 and 2007. You may recall that both of those periods didn’t end well for the bulls. At the time of the post, however, the rate of margin debt growth was at record levels and still growing, and as I noted at the time… While margin debt

Where Are The Reliable Returns?
Secrets to Achieving Better Investment Performance

January 22, 2023

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider and Donn Goodman


Two weeks ago, I visited with my Mother (91 yrs. young) in Phoenix while on a business trip. On our way out to dinner with close friends, we passed a small Circle K gas station with an irresistible offer. It was only Wednesday, and the Mega Millions lottery jackpot was already up over $1 billion. For a measly $2 ticket, I could earn a significant return on my small investment, and I felt comfortable with

The Stock Market is Looking Better But…
Caution is Still Advised.

January 15, 2023

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider and Donn Goodman


Hello Gaugers. It was a good and profitable week for those long in the market these past 5 and even 9 days since the beginning of the year. I have read one article and commentary after another stating that we’re surely in the beginning of a new bull market.

Inflation, What Inflation?

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Michele Schneider We typically have a song or two in my head. After all, watching ticks is musical and has a lot of different beats. And typically, those songs turn into parodies. For this past week, the first song was sealed in our brains after Tesla’s extraordinary run. And then again after Friday’s PCE (Personal Consumption Expenditure) numbers were released. Core PCE excludes food and energy. PCE includes health care, education, haircuts, hospitality

Not Invested in Precious Metals Yet?

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Michele Schneider I personally started out this year saying that to date, gold has been sold on strength and bought on weakness. And that the day strength is bought is the day we begin a much bigger rally.

Trades & Tutorials, by


Last week was a wild week in the cryptocurrency market. Sentiment has quickly changed from 50/50 bullish vs. bearish to almost entirely bullish in just the last 10 days. This is indicative of the significance that non-technical factors can have in the price action of cryptos. On the other hand, technical analysis of recent market action spells out clear trade opportunities that investor sentiment may ignore. Similar to the S&P 500 (SPY) being commonly used
