Granted dsi didnt nail exact bottom on the way down from april to August. There was one more flush once it hit dec 2015 reading, but eventually it marks top/bottom after getting in a certain zone. so it's still worth noting the reading now @80
Gold is poised to close out January with a fourth straight monthly gain after the Fed's uber-dovish flip-flop seemed to signal that it’s done raising interest rates (reportedly for a while but that's never happened before)...
Once this bottom finally gets carved out. Think it's going to be a big rally where people sell too early and it keeps going up generally into may or so maybe before the next major sell off into summer. Not saying there wont be pull backs of course.
2 year old musing flaws, 1) bottom came august and 2) rather than being v bottom to leave everyone behind it's a stealthy bowl. Generally still on track though, with next significant top due around mayish
Why would investors pile into bond funds? Why now? Why heading this direction for 47 weeks? Why would they be running from stocks and locking in low return / no return investments, AT THIS POINT?
Do you have any real inflation data?
Shadowstats says around 5% inflation for the 1990 model and around 9% for the 1980 model. So why would anyone move to bonds to lock in losses?
Cash buried in the back yard would be about the same, metals are manipulated. Seems the only way to make any "return" is to issue credit like credit card companies, auto loans / leasing, payday lending & banksters do.
