Or … Massive Supply Restriction
Use the miss-information and propaganda to your advantage.
The following items are just a partial list of recent inflation, so-called ‘news’.
$3,000 Gold Imminent
That last one … is that like “The science is settled”?
To be fair, there is some truth in the articles. Prices are indeed rising. All types of costs are going up like food, gasoline and on.
Here’s a strange bit of information from an unlikely source.
It turns out that copper (mining) supplies are being restricted in Minnesota. Go to time stamp 2:52, at this link and listen to the next 30-seconds.
Sure, it’s a data point of one but then again, what about all the talk of shutting down sources of oil production?
On it goes. This is supply restriction, not inflation.
It depends on what the definition of ‘inflation’ is.
Here we have one of the usual suspects parroting the now-accepted (but likely incorrect) definition of inflation. Go to time stamp 1:23.
I’m sticking with Robert Prechter Jr.’s definition of inflation and that is: Expansion of credit that causes increased spending that in turn causes demand to rise and then prices rise in turn.
Do we have expansion of credit now … or the destruction (or, soon to be) of credit? That’s called deflation.
Dollar … Still Not Dead
The dollar of course, is the wild-card.
Everybody’s expecting a collapse but darned if that’s just not happening. Actually, the opposite is taking place.
Now, all of a sudden it’s a “Contrarian Trade”. You can’t make this stuff up.
We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of this post.
It postulated there was potential for a significant, medium-to-long term reversal in the dollar.
Getting The Picture
In a way, the dollar post and subsequent ZeroHedge one-year-later recognition of the obvious, define what this site’s all about.
As stated in the ‘About’ section, not every analysis works out. To borrow a quote from David Weis, ‘Sometimes I’m 100% wrong’.
Presented here are analysis, actions, course changes, attempting to maneuver through the largest economic and population collapse in world history.
The main focus is not to increase followership … although that is happening.
As the follower numbers increase, it’s a good sign that more are becoming aware of how manipulated and controlled is the entire narrative.
One way to separate from the effect of the falsehoods, is to become proficient at reading price action. As David Weis used to say, ‘What’s the market saying about itself?’
Which brings us to the current juncture. Gold
Gold, At A Crossroads ?
The current assessment of gold (i.e. bearish or reversal potential) is similar to the dollar from a year ago.
Different from the dollar, are the momentum (MACD, etc.) indicators … which are currently pointing higher.
In the dollar, there was a bullish weekly MACD divergence helping us along.
Not so with gold (GLD).
What we do have, and what the linked list above provides, is a look into a type of mass hysteria.
The ‘pegging the meter‘ article that came out late Friday caused only a blip higher in GLD and GDX.
If we’re at max persistent inflation already, is there any more upside left?
