Artificial-intelligence-changed-seo-11. Artificial Intelligence Confounds Its Creators

Advanced artificial intelligence is far from that. Algorithms are constantly learning, often in unusual ways, and at an exponential rate. It’s one of the cornerstones of the New Gilded Age.

Unfortunately, nobody really knows how they learn. And that should scare you, a lot.

2. Canada's 6-City Housing Prices & the Plunge-O-Meter

In March 2017 Canada's big city metro SFD prices coiled about or slid off their near term highs except in Toronto where detached houses, town houses and condos fetched new peak prices; Vancouver strata prices also hit new highs as well. Strata is the new Canadian "can-do" "must-do" "will-do" affordability metric.

Todd Market Forecast: No Reason For A Short Term Sell

Posted by Stephen Todd - Todd Market Forecast

on Thursday, 27 April 2017 16:34


Todd Market Forecast for Thursday April 27, 2017 Available Mon- Friday after 6:00 P.M. Eastern, 3:00 Pacific.

DOW + 6 on flat breadth

NASDAQ COMP + 24 on 250 net declines



STOCKS: The stock market keeps inching higher mainly on better than expected profits, but we didn't like the internals. The NASDAQ was up nicely, but breadth was lacking.

Also, the S&P 500 is in a resistance zone. Let's see how this pans out.

GOLD: Gold was flat. Not much to report here.

CHART The S&P 500 is hesitating near all time highs. I see no reason to issue a short term sell, but I really don't want to recommend a trading position.

Sentiment: Bulls Get Their Groove

After dropping to its lowest level since the election, bullish sentiment on the part of individual investors surged by the most this week since the week after the election.  According to the weekly survey from the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII), after just one-quarter of individual investors considered themselves bullish last week, more than 38% now put themselves in the bullish camp.  So was it the French election that individual investors were so worried about (kidding)?  Even with this week’s increase, a little perspective for this poll is in order, as it has now been 121 straight weeks since bulls were in the majority.


What we will be watching in this poll next week is what happens with bearish sentiment.  In this week’s survey, bears decline from 38.7% down to 31.71%.  Even after this week’s decline, the uptrend in bearish sentiment that has been in place since late last year remains in place (chart below).  If that uptrend breaks, it could be a precursor for a move to a majority in the bullish camp.

“The Donald” at Bat

Posted by Bill Bonner - Diary of a Rogue Economist

on Wednesday, 26 April 2017 07:46

htuOnce again, the big man steps up to the plate.

Once again, he points his bat at the far bleachers.

This is going to be “bigger, I believe, than any tax cut in history.”

And once again, the fans go wild.

The Dow shot up 216 points yesterday as investors dreamed of a home run.

Corporate taxes would be reduced to 15%, it was rumored. Personal rates would go down to 33%, 25%, and 12% in three simple brackets.

And the economy would boom… just like it did when the last “biggest tax cut ever” was rolled out by the first Reagan administration.

Colorful Player

From the cheap seats to the skybox heavies, Mr. Trump always gets the fans excited.

He is a colorful player who gets his mug in the press regularly. He talks big. He swings hard. But he has a hard time connecting with the little ball.

In his first two times at bat since joining the major leagues, he has struck out.

The first time, the pitcher lobbed an easy O’care reform right over the plate. But with the fans cheering him on… and his whole team supposedly behind him… “The Donald” just couldn’t get on base.

Then there’s America’s foreign policy.

Yes, it was a confusing situation. “The Donald” had given sports lovers hope that he might bring a change. But the president saw a curve ball coming his way and… taking a page out of Hillary’s campaign promises… he couldn’t resist.

He swung wildly, sending a foul ball into the crowd, where it knocked out a hot-dog vendor.

“He had it coming,” the sports commentators agreed. “The hot dogs tasted terrible.”

Grand Slam

And now, Mr. Trump is up again.
