The best performing precious metal for the week was palladium, off 1.44 percent for the week. Citigroup favors palladium in the short term, in response to pollution control, but says substitution risks prevent the bank from taking a more bullish view long term as the price of palladium is now higher than the price of platinum.

More and more, I'm encountering people who are simply infuriated with how our "leaders" are running (or to put it more accurately, ruining) things right now. And I share that fury. It’s perfectly normal human response to be infuriated when an outside agent hurts you, especially if the pain seems unnecessary, illogical or random. Imagine if your neighbor enjoyed setting off loud explosives at all hours of the day and night. Or if he had a habit of tailgating and brake-checking you every time he saw your car on the road. You’d been well within your rights to be infuriated. Full Story

Don’t try to make sense of the above. Instead, let’s just assume that the cryptocurrency universe will continue to expand for a while and narrow the discussion down to a single question: Are cryptocurrencies inflationary? That is, will their spread lead to higher or lower prices for the average person, and greater or lesser financial instability for the markets, and what does this mean for today’s fiat currencies?

This week’s letter will be more like an Outside the Box than a Thoughts from the Frontline. I am feeling under the weather, and while I can read and move around somewhat, I am really not thinking all that well and am not up to wasting your time writing a letter that neither you nor I will be happy with.

For those who may remember, October 19 was the 30th anniversary of Black Monday, the 1987 stock market crash—the day when stock markets around the world crashed in unison. The crash got underway in Hong Kong and then spread to Europe before hitting North American markets. The Dow Jones Industrials (DJI) fell 508 points that day, a decline of 22.6%. As dramatic as it was, most people probably forget the run-up that preceded the crash. The run-up got underway with a low on September 12, 1986 at 1,733.55 and didn’t top until 347 days later on August 25, 1987 at 2,746.64 for a gain of 58%. Full Story

In last weekend’s update it was pointed out that gold’s gap breakout from its steep downtrend shown on its latest 6-month chart below was probably false and that it was expected to drop back as the dollar advanced, which it duly did last week. Bearing in mind that the dollar has about completed its Head-and-Shoulders bottom, it is now clear that a parallel Head-and-Shoulders top is completing in gold as shown on the chart. This chart projects a breakdown beneath the nearby support level to be followed by a drop targeting the quite strong support in the $1200 - $1215 area. Full Story

So the bottom line is, a yield curve bottom and a rotation to a steepening environment is out there somewhere on the horizon. It will either be inflationary or deflationary. But whatever it is, it will not favor many of the best performing items of the post 2011, post-Op/Twist Goldilocks era. I am nimbly long the current asset market party (with a boat load of USD bull fund UUP and cash) and with the mature trend. But for the few looking ahead to trade dynamic changes in the yield curve and possibly even nominal long-term bond yields (again, see 1st chart above) the real party has not yet begun. Full Story

Last week we noted the likely negative impact of a sustained rebound in the US Dollar on Gold. Recent weakness in precious metals has not been much of a surprise considering the sector’s relative weakness months ago amid a weak US Dollar. While the greenback has bottomed, it has yet to push above resistance at 94. Nevertheless, Gold and in particular the gold stocks are threatening more losses even before a push higher in the greenback. It is time to be defensive and cautious. Full Story
