How Far Will Things Fall

I really should tip my hat to Hussman for his insights. He has been exceedingly successful in navigating the bear/bull markets. I truly think that the coming 2 months will not be pretty at all for many markets, and unfortunately gold included. First thing first. Judging from the crude oil chart, it appears that we […]

Yield Curve Steepening Means No Recession

Incidentally Mark Hulbert is posting another bullish post “Ahead of the (yield) curve – Commentary: Post-Fed curve much steeper, a good sign for the economy”.
