“Having a few malcontents is a way of life in the age of cyberspace. But when normal people begin to whine and complain, you just know you’re at an extreme and the dam is about to bust. That’s how money manager Michael Pento found himself a week ago last Friday.
I’m honored to serve on Michael’s “Investment Policy Committee” and that late Friday afternoon, I found my good friend reflecting on how clients had written and called about his strategy up until then and that they concluded he was wrong and they were saying adios. I said to Michael “I’ve no doubt now that we’re right and we’ll be shown to be before too long.” Little did I know in just a week or so, much of what we had forecasted would unfold (I will be recording our next meeting of the “Investment Policy Committee” and have it up here in a few days).
U.S. Stock Market – Make no mistake about it, much of the technical and fundamental bearish factors I’ve spoken about showed themselves to all in recent days. Columbus Day is normally very quiet but the last half-hour yesterday led to major technical damage. But that type of sell-off is usually followed by a sharp and quick counter-trend rally so it would come as no surprise we see such an event in the hours and days ahead.
But having felt after avoiding being outright bearish from the very bottom in 2009 to the start of this year, the fact that all of 2014’s gains have been wiped out makes my belief to be a seller as 2014 unfolded the right choice as of now. Knowing the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd doesn’t just close up shop and go home, and it’s in the government’s best interest not to see a market crash, I think we shall work our way significantly lower into 2015 and beyond versus just plunge straight down. But either way it comes, going lower is the path in yours truly eyes.
Gold – The triple bottom is starting to be formed and while its “Psychologically good to see us heading higher versus lower, we’re not out of the woods yet. Getting above the 50-Day M.A will be comforting and of course above the 200-Day M.A should be the all-clear. Today should be a good indicator if the rally is real as the U.S. Dollar is sharply higher and the stock market likely to see strength early on. If gold just closes off a little or actually up on the day, it should be yet another sign the overwhelming number of gold bears and former bulls are about to get a big shock to their plans.
Oil – Short term the decline helps the economy but longer term it’s a net negative. I think we can see $75 and between now and year-end, oil related equities may come into vogue in my book (but not now).” - Peter Grandich, http://moneytalks.net/peters-content.html
