Two rate hikes since last year have weakened the dollar. Why is that, and what’s ahead for dollar, currencies & gold? And while we are at it, we’ll chime in on what may be in store for the stock market...


The chart above shows the S&P 500, the price of gold and the U.S. dollar index since the beginning of 2016. The year 2016 started with a rout in the equity markets which was soon forgotten, allowing the multi-year bull market to continue. After last November’s election we have had the onset of what some refer to as the Trump rally. Volatility in the stock market has come down to what may be historic lows. Of late, many trading days appear to start on a down note, although late day rallies (possibly due to retail money flowing into index funds) are quite common. 

Where do stocks go from here?..

banks1. How Solid are Canada’s Big Banks?

Maybe Canadian banks are among the world’s best. Maybe the financial system would remain stable if one went under. 

Nevertheless, there is plenty of room for doubt.

2. Is Silver a Better Value than Gold Right Now?

Most people look at the paper price of silver and if it is falling, they mistakenly believe that physical silver is not a good buy because a falling price means too much supply and not enough demand.

3. Here’s how to tell when the Trump rally is over

Through last Thursday, the S&P 500 went 102 straight days without a 1% downward move. Just since Trump’s election, the S&P 500 has added $3 trillion of market value. 

And sure, that type of enthusiasm is unsustainable. But unlike in 2000, the stock market is NOT grossly overvalued.

Todd Market Forecast: Oversold

Todd Market Forecast for Thursday March 23 , 2017

Available Mon- Friday after 6:00 P.M. Eastern, 3:00 Pacific.

DOW - 4 on 900 net advances

NASDAQ COMP - 4 on750 net advances



STOCKS: The market was captivated by the health care debate on Thursday. When it looked like the bill would pass the Dow was up over 80, but when contrary news hit the tape, we saw selling.

The market is oversold by a number of measures and seems to want to go up, but the health care situation is an artificial overlay suppressing prices. This should resolve fairly soon.

GOLD: Gold gave back $4. We've had a good run. Looks to be minor profit taking.

CHART The Dow and other popular averages have been in a downtrend, but it's not being confirmed by breadth. When there is a conflict, breadth usually (but not always) wins.

Currencies from a Central European’s Perspective (1917-2017)

Posted by Peter Fröhlich - SRSrocco Report

on Thursday, 23 March 2017 09:23


The average 100 year old person living in Central Europe has experienced a currency conversion once a decade.

I wrote up this article for the SRSrocco Report to document three things.

1 – People all over the planet should never trust their governments with their money.

2 – Given the history of currency changes, it’s no surprise that people in Central Europe are, generally speaking, much poorer than people in Western Europe or North America.

3 – Protecting one’s wealth in an environment of constantly changing currencies is extremely hard. Thus, people should make the right choices when times are quite OK, because when the really hard times hit, all of one’s wealth can be lost very quickly and easily.

As you will see, there is not much difference between ideologies and governments. They all tend to follow the same practices and, in the end, they all destroy or at least significantly debase their currencies.
