Richard’s Thoughts on Intrinsic Money

March 17, 2010

 

The great bull market in gold has been in force for almost a decade.  I've shown where gold, since 2000, has closed higher for nine consecutive years.  During that time gold has advanced from prices in the 200s to its current price of approximately 1124.

 

Now suppose the stock market had done the same thing.  Can you imagine the frenzy that would be greeting stocks today?  Yet, incredibly, the fantastic bull market in gold has elicited little or no excitement from the US public.

Central Bank Frustrations

By Chuck Butler

 

Welcome to another edition of the Butler Patio… I’m currently stuck in S. Florida, so I have no patio to preach from at the moment, but if I put it all down in words on paper, somebody will read it!

 

The Trade War digs its heels in deeper… Gold continues to be subjected to China’s whims, and just when everyone is thinking that it’s happy days are here again, the economy is showing signs of fatigue…  And of course there’s bound to be a discussion about Central Banks and bankers after that heading above, eh?

Daily Recap

The closing bell brought relief of some sorts today, after a brutal beating in the precious metals and not much joy in equities, either. For the precious metals, it was mostly just a matter of the bearish trend running the show, after key support levels were taken out in the last few days. Excuses du jour included a strong dollar and more drama out of the Turkish situation. Sharply lower stock prices caught a break after the announcement of better than expected retail sales, worker productivity, and solid manufacturing output, however.

Remember Real Estate?

by Jon S. Strebler

Dollar Breakout Threatens Rally

By Matthew Kerkhoff

 

The story of 2018 has been one of U.S. growth, but not necessarily global growth. While most major economies around the world are still expanding, they have been decelerating or holding steady, whereas the U.S. economy has been picking up steam.

 

And as is typically the case, a stronger relative outlook for the U.S. has led investors to bid up the dollar, which is causing a reshuffling of the cards. Currencies always have a way of sharing and redistributing growth around the globe, and this time is no different.

Richard’s Thoughts on Whether Dow Theory is Outmoded

Richard’s Comments

 

What's this? A site which calls itself "Financial Sense University" offers a "Requiem for the Dow Theory" by John Tyler and another "expose" entitled just "Dow Theory" by Sol Palha. Both articles present the thesis that the Dow Theory is outmoded and that modern changes have rendered the Theory useless.

 

I've been dealing with these sensational disclosures ever since I started writing Dow Theory Letters almost half a century ago.
