As symbolized by the 3 Amigos, the macro backdrop is riding on to its destiny. That forward destiny is a top in stocks vs. gold (Amigo 1), a rise in long-term interest rates to potential if not probable limits (Amigo 2) and an end to the yield curve’s flattening trend (Amigo 3).

When our zany friends complete the journey, big changes are likely in the macro markets.


Let’s take a checkup on each Amigo and consider some implications as well.

Amigo 1: Stocks vs. Gold

Using the S&P 500 as an example, stocks/gold ratios are still trending up on the daily time frame.

2. Recipe Calls for a Broad Commodities Rally in 2018

With US Dollar breaking to multi-year lows and the 37 Year old Bull Market in Bonds set to go bearish there is going to be dramatic changes in where money flows. Based on previous booms and busts, the S&P GSCI Total Return Index-to-S&P 500 Index ratio above is now at its lowest point since the dotcom bubble, meaning commodities and mining companies are highly undervalued relative to large-cap stocks.

The liquidity will flow into commodities causing inflation…just like it did in 2008. This time the bubble will be in the precious metals market instead of the energy markets though. The metals have held up much better than the rest of the commodity sector. Big money has been accumulating all last year in preparation for what happens when the stock bubble pops. This is why stocks and gold have gone up together for two years. Gold will continue to rise as the bubble in stocks becomes more mature and more and more liquidity starts to move over to the metals in preparation for the stock market implosion that is coming later this year.

Todd Market Forecast: Stock Market Set For Near Term Strength

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Stephen Todd - Todd Market Forecast

on Wednesday, 17 January 2018 04:51

Tuesday January 16, 2018 3:00pm Pacific.

DOW - 10 on 968 net declines

NASDAQ COMP - 37 on 1002 net declines



STOCKS: Today we had a reversal day on relatively high volume. The Dow was up 282 points shortly after the opening and then gave it all back and then some.

That type of activity can mark a significant top, but not normally. Usually it's just a temporary interruption in the current trend. The extreme overbought condition was most likely the culprit. It would actually be good to have a multi day retreat, but I doubt we'll get it.

GOLD: Gold was up $4. Another new low for the greenback helped push up the yellow metal.

CHART: The Volatility index (VIX) moved up 15% today. Any move of over 7% has a tendency to foreshadow near term strength.
