By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 6 March, 2009

It would seem so clear that the U.SA. Tax Authority attack on UBS is going to break the Swiss secret banking system. Will they succeed? After whacking them with a $780 million fine they are now coming in for another attack demanding the exposure of U.S. Swiss account holders in the bank. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Greg McCoach - 6 March, 2009

In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Greg outlines the ‘new’ criteria for junior miners, explains why he favors the juniors over more senior producers and advises a combination of both physical metal and stocks for investors to protect themselves in today’s market. Full Story

By: Daniel Aaronson and Lee Markowitz - 6 March, 2009

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) rose 150 points on Wednesday on hopes of a second Chinese stimulus package. This rally shows the dependence the world has on the resurgence of China and begs the question: Does China needs the US or do we need China? As discussed below, it should be clear that the US needs China. Full Story

By: Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital, Inc. - 6 March, 2009

Talk show host and conservative icon Rush Limbaugh recently ignited a firestorm of criticism for expressing his desire that Barack Obama should fail. Democrats, and even some Republicans, suggested that he had put aside his patriotism to wish for an economic collapse that would result in political advantage for conservatives. However, if you believe as I, and apparently Rush, that Obama's plans will prevent recovery, then wishing that they fail to become actual policy is the right thing to do. Full Story

We will now see if Milton and Anna were correct. We will see if the economy is a simple machine where the mandarins can spin a few dials and pull a few levers and everything will be just rosy in a quarter or two. After all it worked in Japan – didn’t it? Full Story

By: Adrian Ash, BullionVault - 6 March, 2009

In this credit deflation, where the nominal price of all things is shrinking, that which inflated the most should now shrink the fastest. Both its share of total economic value and its absolute pricing are working to reverse their misallocation over the last decade and more. And double the inflationary trouble means double deflation once the bubble has burst – as the financial services industry is only just finding out as well. Full Story

By: Adam Hamilton, Zeal Intelligence LLC - 6 March, 2009

With the S&P 500 slumping below its November panic low, it’s been one tough week in the stock markets. The SPX was holding its own until the Marxist Party inexplicably decided to announce giant and aggressive tax hikes on American investors. So confidence, already very weak after the first true stock panic in 101 years, continued flagging on the Marxists’ plans to steal ever more of the fruits of our labors. Full Story

By: Deepcaster - 6 March, 2009

A measure of just how hapless the U.S. Congress is before the Power of the mighty Private for-profit Federal Reserve is reflected in the foregoing exchange between U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Fed Chairman Bernanke. Bernanke flatly refused to indicate to whom the $2.2 trillion on the Fed’s balance sheet had been loaned to even though American taxpayers’ funds were used to make the loans. Full Story

By: Michael S. Rozeff - 6 March, 2009

Ground zero of the economic depression is the banking system – worldwide. The system is collapsed, exploded, demolished, gone, ruined, kaput. The global banking system was a house of cards, and it has fallen. Governments and central banks everywhere do not yet realize this. They are attempting to rebuild the house from the pieces and scraps scattered far and wide. Better to salvage the pieces that still work and use them in an entirely new system than attempt to rebuild this one on the same cracked foundation and along the same flawed lines that produced this wreck. Full Story

By: David Morgan, Silver Investor - 6 March, 2009

In the February issue of The Morgan Report, we produced a feature that is of extreme significance to those of us who are serious about making money in the mining sector. We have diverted a bit from starting off the report with a quote and instead ask a very important question. "What is an economic mining project?” A question any serious mining investor should ask! Full Story

By: David Schectman - 6 March, 2009

Why is it so hard for most investors to understand that the problems at hand cannot be solved and that the US dollar and all dollar denominated assets are on the verge of a terrible tumble? Full Story

By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 6 March, 2009

Money is money, because it is a great STORE OF VALUE. Oil cannot be money, because it costs $75,000 to store oil in a supertanker for ONE DAY! Paper is NOT money either, because it CANNOT be a store of value when it is being printed to excess, to bail out so many Banker's unpayable debts. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 6 March, 2009

Investigative reporter Alex Jones was on the Coast to Coast AM radio program on Feb 17, 2009 to discuss the progress of a movement in the US states to declare their opposition to the continuous federal encroachment on states’ rights and recognition of the power of the 9th and 10th amendments of the US Constitution. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The Mogambo Guru - 6 March, 2009

There are obviously a lot of differences between me and damned near everybody else, one of which is that I spend a lot of time screaming in outrage about the stupidities of Congress (spendthrift morons and their half-witted commie/socialist absurdities) and the Federal Reserve (for creating too much money and credit, with which to buy the Treasury debt necessitated by Congress’s continual, crazy, catastrophic deficit-spending). Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 6 March, 2009

The E-Mini S&P futures did a touch-and-go landing yesterday that came within a hair of a 675.50 target we’d drum-rolled from 50 points higher. Officially, the three-tick miss was as good as a mile, and so we did not officially initiate a long position in the S&P mini-futures. However, and fortunately, some Rick’s Picks subscribers front-ran the order aggressively, buying just above the low print of the day at 676.25. Full Story

By: Jim Willie CB - 5 March, 2009

A couple of bright friends reported to me some overriding themes at the PDAC gathering in Toronto last weekend. Apparently, some surprise came to them. They mentioned that more than a few analysts, writers, and speakers still do not get it. They actually believe the situation with the USEconomy and US banking system has begun to stabilize. That is like saying a college basketball player has Michael Jordan under control, or a farmer has his Clydesdale horse under control, or a misguided King can call back the ocean tide, or a man has a hurricane under control as he clings to a roof rafter. The USEconomy has entered an accelerated phase of disintegration, while the populace has entered a new panic phase. Full Story

By: Antal E. Fekete - 5 March, 2009

At the long last we got the official explanation how we got into this mess. In his March 2, 2009, column in The New York Times under the banner title Revenge of the Glut Paul Krugman tells us that it is all the fault of the Asians. They save damn too much. They test the endurance of unhappy Americans’ who bankrupt themselves in trying to work off all that darned excess saving fast enough. Even though they do their best, they could not keep up with the prodigious output of the Asians and “global savings glut” is the result. Full Story

By: Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning - 5 March, 2009

Sweden to GM/Saab: Drop Dead! Finally, a nation with a little backbone…a little integrity…a little good sense. And guess what, it’s that dreary socialist refrigerator – Sweden. Asked to bailout its GM-owned automaker, Saab, the country’s Prime Minister just said ‘no.’ Good for him… Full Story

By: Gary Dorsch, Editor Global Money Trends newsletter - 5 March, 2009

“De-leveraging” and “Risk Aversion” are the buzzwords cited by many currency analysts, to explain the puzzling strength of the US-dollar, which has climbed by more than 20% since last July, despite the widely held view, that top Wall Street banks are insolvent and only surviving on artificial life support, and with the flow of credit badly constrained, the US economy is spiraling towards a “Great Depression.” Full Story

By: Mark Pasek - 5 March, 2009

Welcome to the first edition of Gold, Toilet Paper, and Water. I was inspired to name this newsletter after the only investments I feel safe recommending considering what America is facing. Gold, well this one is pretty obvious. Toilet Paper is the one creature comfort you shouldn’t sacrifice; you can probably do without the $4 Half-Caff Soy Mocha-Lattes. And of course water. I’ll bet that you can’t go more than 48 hours without that. Full Story

By: James West, The Midas Letter - 5 March, 2009

Going forward, gold will continue to dominate investor favor, especially when the anticipated reversal of fortune for USD materializes. When exactly that will happen is difficult to pinpoint, but sooner rather than later is my bet. Full Story

By: Bill Trench - 5 March, 2009

The solution to the current recession is to scrap the whole “bailout” bill, and cut government spending drastically. At the same time cut taxes across the board, thus making money available for people and companies to spend and invest, thus creating more demand, thus creating more production, and thus creating more, newer and better jobs which will, in the end, mean greater wealth for everyone. Will it happen? I for one am not holding my breath. Full Story

By: Trace Mayer, J.D. - 5 March, 2009

On 3 March 2009 in the space of a few hours the Armenian dram evaporated from about 300 per dollar to about 400 per dollar and 275,000 drams per ounce of gold to approximately 365,000 drams per ounce of gold. This rapid 30% currency poofing is like when the Kazakhstan currency went poof but without the strategic geo-political considerations. Full Story

By: Andrew Mickey, Q1 Publishing - 5 March, 2009

The only time a manager would do this is if they couldn’t find anything they wanted to buy. In this case, with a short fund, it means Leuthold can’t find much he wants to sell short. That’s a good sign. It might not signal a bottom for the overall markets – and I wouldn’t take it as such - but it shows there are much fewer significantly overly valued stocks out there. Full Story

By: Bill Murphy, Le Metropole Cafe, Inc. - 5 March, 2009

The unthinkable, as mentioned in this column over and over, is at hand ... UNFORTUNATELY.
All of us are going to wake up one day with gold and silver prices up so much in that given day that you will think your computer or TV is broken. REMEMBER...

By: Chris Vermeulen - 5 March, 2009

Gold and gold stocks have had a nice controlled correction over the past 9 days. We look to be nearing the bottom of the bull trend channel, which could be a great buy point. If gold has a reversal around this level, then it would make for a low risk buy signal. But there is one issue, which really concerns me, which I will explain later. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 5 March, 2009

The past several weeks have seen a flurry of reports suggesting that March 2009 will offer a turn date for gold, silver and other commodities and currencies in deference to the plutocrat owned US dollar. As was true with analysts who have suggested that date, I too have passed along a couple of news items which supported that thesis. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 5 March, 2009

Junior Mogambo Ranger (JMR) Phil S. sent me the essay titled “Government: A Successful Failure” by Robert Anderson, erstwhile professor of economics at Hillsdale College and executive secretary of FEE, and posted at Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 5 March, 2009

Has the stock market put in an important low? We doubt it, and we’ll tell you why in a minute. But we should acknowledge that some technicians we know are apparently impressed by the saucer bottom traced out by the Dow Industrials and other key indexes over the last three days. The pattern is shown in the chart below, and if one were a reader of tea leaves looking desperately for positive signs, this classic formation might do in a pinch. Full Story

By: John Browne, Senior Market Strategist, Euro Pacific Capital - 4 March, 2009

In his budget last week, President Obama chose to raise taxes on individuals and businesses. In the face of a worldwide recession that is fast sliding into a depression and even towards an economic catastrophe, it was a surprising decision. It will likely serve only to deepen and prolong the economic decline. Despite the destructive tax hikes, the budget still forecast the largest deficit in world history. Full Story

By: Antal E. Fekete - 4 March, 2009

As far as the U.S. is concerned, the end of ready marketability for its debt would make the sale of its future issues on the present scale very problematic, if not impossible. The only option left would be the direct monetization of Treasury debt by the Fed, but that would trigger hyperinflation in very short order. Full Story

By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 4 March, 2009

Last week, we could barely sell 1000 ounces of silver per day. On Monday, we sold 2000. Tuesday, 4900 oz.! I was very happy to be able to provide that silver, "on a dip", now that I have procedures in place to replace it, and make more! So tonight, we will offer at least 7500 oz. for sale, which is about our top capacity, and would be 150,000 oz./month! Full Story

By: The editors of BIG GOLD, Casey Research - 4 March, 2009

You’ve bought some physical gold – congratulations! We think you’ve made a wise decision. And yes, we’re referring to physical gold that you’ve taken possession of – not electronic gold, ETFs, Perth Mint Certificates, etc. Those are all good choices, but your portfolio is incomplete until you have some coins or bars under your direct, physical control… Full Story

By: John Rubino - 4 March, 2009

After its worst year in living memory, the stock market is due for a bit of relief. Whether it turns out to be a dead cat bounce or a cyclical bottom remains to be seen. But some heavyweight bears are now placing their bets on the long side. Full Story

By: Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning - 4 March, 2009

Angela Merkel to Eastern Europe: Drop Dead! You remember that famous cover story of the New York Daily News? New York was nearly bankrupt in 1975. The city asked the feds for a bailout. To his everlasting credit, Gerald Ford had the backbone to just say ‘no.’ Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 4 March, 2009

For once we can thank the criminal miscreants in the gold cartel for all their suppressive efforts. As they buy time for themselves so they can bail out of dollar-denominated paper assets and roll the proceeds over into gold, silver and other real tangible assets on the cheap via the scheme we have referred to often as the Big Sting Two, they are also letting everyone else in the general public have more time to learn about gold and silver while precious metals are still affordably priced. Full Story

By: Nadeem Walayat - 4 March, 2009

The long ticking time bomb of Eastern European debt is starting to explode with an even greater inevitability as that of subprime mortgages exploding in the United States, as at least in the United States the determining factor of whether or not the mortgage market would go bust is the state of the US housing market. Full Story

By: Peter Grandich - 4 March, 2009

Since turning bullish on precious metals back in the spring of 2003, I have stated we’re a secular bull market that will have short, but sharp corrections. We just had another one. This, IMHO, should be the last one before we enjoy another major leg up. Full Story

By: Roland Watson, The Silver Analyst - 4 March, 2009

I wrote an article some years back pointing out an interesting fact about gold and silver during the great Weimar hyperinflation. That article lay dormant for some time until last October when I suddenly received dozens of emails about it from gold investors. As it turned out, the article had been mentioned on the website of one of gold’s well known commentators and hence the rush of emails. Full Story

By: Paul Hein - 4 March, 2009

So look about once again. What you see is the collapse of a society built upon a bubble of deceit and dishonesty, a society which has been trying to borrow itself into prosperity. It’s happened before, many times. A fiat "money" eventually reaches its intrinsic value. Do we learn from experience? In monetary matters, the answer would seem to be "NO!" And civilization crumbles, on a foundation of fiat. A sound society needs sound money. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 4 March, 2009

Everybody knows that ‘quantitative easing’ or printing money is just around the corner, and the Bank of England yesterday was the first central bank in the world to receive government permission to go ahead. Full Story

By: Dr. Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman - 4 March, 2009

It's immoral to transfer wealth from the productive to the non-productive members of society. The stimulus and the bailouts will only make the problem worse. Government needs to get out of the way and let the market sort itself out. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 4 March, 2009

Through massive spending of money and the realities of war, Rosenfeldt lifted the US out of the great depression. But today is considerable different than the way things were back in the 1930s when FDR came to power. But the Obama efforts to repeat the tactics of Rosenfeldt will never save the day for the ruling plutocrats. For sure, America’s financial future is in serious trouble. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 4 March, 2009

There are many things that scare me in this world, but none is more horrendous than the short extrapolation that came out a few years after government debt went from 78% of GDP in one year to 100% the next. Full Story

By: The Gold Report and Tyler Mordy - 3 March, 2009

It was Warren Buffett who said that you learn who’s been swimming naked when the tide goes out. But it is Tyler Mordy who’s pointing out the few swimsuit-clad investment products standing on the shore now that the tide of economic growth has clearly ebbed—and some of them have a golden glow. Full Story

By: Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning - 3 March, 2009

We’re glad we hoisted our Crash Alert flag when we did. Yesterday, markets all over the world plunged to new lows…with the Dow closing below 7,000 for the first time since 1997. At 6,763…it has only a couple of thousand points left to go. Then, we can begin looking for the bottom. Full Story

By: Theodore Butler - 3 March, 2009

Once again, the recent sell off in silver is explained by the market structure on the COMEX. Once again, clear new evidence of manipulation has been presented. Once again, this evidence is contained in the CFTC-issued Commitment of Traders Report (COT), rendering the source data as reliable. Full Story

By: Axel Merk - 3 March, 2009

Insolvent banks may need to be dismembered anyway, but the longer it is dragged out, and the more money that is thrown at the problem, the more the purchasing power of the dollar gets eroded. And that closes the loop of why we take an interest in this. Full Story

By: Trace Mayer, J.D. - 3 March, 2009

On 10 Feb 2009 I wrote about how the DOW was predictably crashing. On 18 Feb 2009 I wrote about the single digit midgets Citigroup and Bank of America. I am extremely surprised with how quickly these former behemoths are evaporating. Nevertheless, I probably should not be as this is the Information Age and such speed is to be expected. Full Story

By: Steven Saville, Speculative Investor - 3 March, 2009

Although we are anticipating another great depression we want to emphasize that we are NOT anticipating a replay of the 1930s. We are anticipating a drawn-out period of economic contraction, but the details will almost certainly differ markedly from previous depressions. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 3 March, 2009

Global markets verging on collapse dragged bullion lower yesterday, but not by much. While Comex April Gold finished down 1.4%, the Dow’s lost three times as much, falling 300 points on the day, or 4.2%. Rick’s Picks subscribers managed to dodge the bullet with a short position in the Gold Miners ETF (GDX) that has gained 50% since we acquired it last week. Full Story

By: Ned W. Schmidt, CFA, CEBS - 3 March, 2009

Two things happened in the 1960s. Most importantly, that decade ended. Second, consumers and investors began learning to not be fooled by governmental policies and actions. That learning experienced was reinforced by the many policy errors of the 1970s. Full Story

By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 3 March, 2009

Many people continue to be amazed at our super fast shipping, where we ship the SAME DAY as wires come in. One man said, "How can it be done any better?" But that's not our only competitive advanage. No other source on the internet has as many design choices as us when it comes to 1 oz. rounds. Full Story

By: Andrew Mickey, Q1 Publishing - 3 March, 2009

It’s ugly out there and there aren’t too many safe haven investments. And there’s been no sign of a bottom so far. But rest assured, higher energy prices are coming - eventually. The politicians are going to make it so. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 3 March, 2009

The catastrophe of such a thing like that happening kind of dazed me with a sort of petrifying fear, and the next thing I knew they were talking about the federal budget deficit, too, and that the deficit for 2009 “is now estimated at between $2 trillion and $3 trillion, give or take a few hundred billion.” Full Story

By: Dr. Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman - 2 March, 2009

If spending was the solution, we never would have had a problem. During the last eight years, we’ve blown up the size of government and certainly had no want of spending on foreign or domestic policy. The Bush administration increased spending almost 20n its first term, and nearly doubled the national debt by the end of the second term. Certainly the case cannot be made that lack of government spending created the problem or can be the solution. Full Story

By: Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning - 2 March, 2009

Investors are “bloodied and confused,” says Warren Buffett, “much as though they were small birds that had strayed into a badminton game…” By the end of 2008, $30-$40 trillion had been lost, in stocks, housing and derivatives. Investors breathed a sigh of relief when December 31 finally came. But then came 2009! World markets have fallen 18% so far this year…2009 is on track to lose far more than even 2008, which was the worst year in stock market history. Full Story

By: Peter Grandich - 2 March, 2009

The DJIA is down about 250 points as I type. For the first time since this “once-in-a-lifetime” bear market began, the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd who continously appear on CNBC and the CNBC personnel themselves (including the eternal bull Dennis), have a very concerned look on their faces. Full Story

By: R. D. Bradshaw - 2 March, 2009

Long term, probably this report on Chinese counterfeiting may not amount to much. But there is likely some impact on gold and silver coins in the short term. If the plutocrats elect to publicize it and play it up, it could particularly hurt gold and silver short term. Full Story

By: Captain Hook, Treasure Chests - 2 March, 2009

Or should I say, one will need be increasingly brave to live in a rapidly changing environment, strewn with perils and pitfalls not contemplated by the masses (mob) just yet. Slowly but surely process is taking hold in this regard however, and it will accelerate and spread like wildfire as the economy continues to contract, and conditions are officially deemed to be in Depression on a global scale. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 2 March, 2009

The so-called greatest economic boom in history, which supposedly took place in the United States from the end of the early 1980's recession to 2007, was nothing but an exercise in inflation and voodoo finance. It was a smoke and mirrors bull market based on Alice in Wonderland economics. Full Story

By: Gary North, Mises on Money - 2 March, 2009

The gold standard has advocates, but the problem is, there are competing versions. The government-enforced gold standard is the one that gets all the space in the history textbooks. This is because it is the only version governments allow. Full Story

By: John Rubino - 2 March, 2009

Only two things can save the Fed at this point. One is a bailout by the federal government. This recapitalization could be financed by taxes or by monetizing government debt in another blow to the value of the currency. Full Story

By: Neil Charnock - 2 March, 2009

For now buy gold and protect yourselves as you should have been doing over the past 7 years – it is not too late if you have capital left. Food production, clean energy, sunrise industries also have a bright future and change should be embraced. Change can be extremely liberating and valuable if it is faced with a sense of responsibility, learning from the past and positive thoughts / actions. Full Story

By: Gary Tanashian - 2 March, 2009

I want to update the USD ‘scenarios’ first introduced in NFTRH21. We will be keeping a close watch on these proceedings going forward because they are vital to effective analysis, with respect to the timing of deflation-inflation dynamics and our stance. Full Story

The Nasdaq Dubai and World Gold Council launched its long awaited gold exchange traded fund today, which is both Shariah compliant for Islamic investors and 100 per cent backed by physical gold. Full Story

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 2 March, 2009

Those who voted for Hope and Change should have enough of both by now to last a lifetime. Hope has come via the kind of desperate prayers we might employ to deflect an Earth-bound asteroid. Indeed, so dire do our economic prospects appear at the moment that Hope alone may be the only appropriate response. Full Story

This article is in two parts and I will shortly update my article "The Money Matrix - Who Owns the FED (PART 7/15)".

Gold ran at its highs of last March, before reacting back heavily, as expected and predicted in the last update. The 1-year chart makes very clear why it has reacted back so. It hit the upper return line of a steep uptrend channel in a very overbought condition as shown by the RSI and slow stochastic on this chart, and various other oscillators that are not shown. Full Story

By: Peter J. Cooper - 1 March, 2009

There is talk in the gold market of a ‘double top’ and evidence of climatic selling in India. But when I look at the gold chart it reminds me very much of the 2006 top and how investors got the jitters at $730. Full Story

By: Chris Vermeulen - 1 March, 2009

The past 6 months have been every interesting, as the financial markets try to find a bottom while banks go bankrupt and more and more investment scandals continue to pop up on the radar destroying investor’s life savings literally over night. It still sounds crazy, when I hear banks are going bankrupt and it just goes to show anything can happen. Full Story

By: Dr. Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman - 1 March, 2009

I rise to introduce the Federal Reserve Transparency Act. Throughout its nearly 100-year history, the Federal Reserve has presided over the near-complete destruction of the United States dollar. Since 1913 the dollar has lost over 95% of its purchasing power, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve's loose monetary policy. How long will we as a Congress stand idly by while hard-working Americans see their savings eaten away by inflation? Only big-spending politicians and politically favored bankers benefit from inflation. Full Story

In this update from Sascha Opel, former chief editor of the first newsletter about the German “Neuer Markt” (New Market), he gives us his current thoughts on the precious metals market.

There are many slips betwixt cup and lip, and thus this introduction before getting to the FED’s unsound theories. Neither the federal government nor its Constitution have a moral or rightful foundation over any person residing in America who does not consent to them, for civil and political rights include the right of association.

This week Professor Jeremy Siegel (author of Stocks for the Long Run) had an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal showing that stocks are now cheap. I was on Tech Ticker, and Henry Blodgett challenged me about my e-letter last week, where I talked about how expensive stocks are. So which is it? We look at Professor Siegel's work -- and I let you decide. Full Story

By: Andrew Mickey, Q1 Publishing - 1 March, 2009

Government economists must be nice folks. They’ve had to break a lot of bad news to us since this recession started over a year ago. But they’re nice. They’re breaking it to us as gently as possible. They ask, “Do you want the bad news first? Or the really bad news?” Full Story

The Conference Board’s index of consumer confidence declined to the lowest level since they started collecting data in 1967, which is why reported that “Confidence among U.S. consumers plunged to a record low in February, signaling spending will slump further as unemployment soars.” Full Story

By: Warren Bevan - 1 March, 2009

The week was a doozie seeing the major averages head into low ground and signalling more downward movement as the bear market unfolds. We will see a large rally but when is the real question. I see nothing but complacency and ho hum while the indices move lower. The financial news continues to worsen and the markets are confirming this but the mood is as if it was rising. I suggest people put their eyes back in place and see through the forest. Full Story
