Mid-September Column Highlights

Mish's Daily

By Mish Schneider

Written by Mish Schneider

As we move into October soon, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of my recent daily columns from September.

On September 13, I wrote a Daily titled Why Higher Inflation Matters and Transportation is Key. In it, I highlighted that the transportation sector and the high-yield bond market would telegraph where the stock market was headed.

The following day, on September 14, I wrote another Daily titled The Market Stabilizes While Transports Hold Their Breath which reiterated  again the need to keep an eye on the transportation industry (IYT) as a gauge of the health of our economy.

The next evening, September 15, FedEx made a shocking Thursday night earnings announcement about a massive quarterly loss and the withdrawal of financial guidance for the rest of the year.

As of Tuesday, IYT led the entire market lower.

Then, for last weekend, I wrote a column titled, The Biotech Sector Should Come Back First, and I explained that biotech, as represented by IBB, should be on your shopping list.

Wednesday, Biogen (BIIB) skyrocketed by 39% today, due to their Alzheimer's drug being successful in a late-stage trial.

That and the QE announcement by the BoE sparked a major rally.

Yet, what about commodities?

I also wrote a column entitled Is Silver About to Outshine Gold? I explained that when analyzing the trend or a trade-in gold (GLD), it's a good idea to look at Silver (SLV) because trends in these metals tend to be reliable when they are in sync.

The Gold/Silver ratio.

The Gold/Silver ratio measures the amount of silver it takes to buy one ounce of Gold. Looking at the above Gold/Silver ratio since 1980, one can quickly identify the highs and lows.

Since the ratio has been published, only three times has it been above 95:1. The first time was in the early nineties.

It was at 95:1 intraday today and closed today at 89:1. Today, silver is cheaper than Gold. The Gold to Silver ratio is at historic lows.

Hence, I leave you with one more dose of free wisdom to consider silver and why it might outperform gold in the coming months.
