This is going to be one of those technical discussions that are tedious and long-winded (also to include at least one boring anecdote).
If desired, go to the Summary for the CliffsNotes wrap up.
For the rest, let’s get into it:
A quick look at the news and financial sites has the inflation narrative still raging.
This link to an article on ZeroHedge offers a slightly different perspective than one-way hyperinflation.
At least it says deflation is a possibility.
Back in the day, I used to read as many of these press releases as possible; combine them, put them in a spreadsheet, develop a ‘voting’ system (with variable adjusted algorithmic weighting), look at buy and sell recommendations, try to figure out if MACD, RSI and Stochastics could predict the next move … and then, I would watch Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser.
It’s a frustrating, unprofitable exercise that was ultimately abandoned while the search for market truth carried on; only to be found much later in 2007; that’s a story for another time.
There’s nothing wrong with Rukeyser. In fact, I did use his program (once) in what was at the time, a trade of pure intuition.
During his opening monologue (probably May 19th, 1989), Rukeyser talked about gold reaching multi-year lows.
