Copper, Oil, Gold & US Stocks: BIG PICTURE STATUS

Sometimes I like to trot these lumbering monthlies out so we can quiet everything down and see where various markets are slowly heading.

First of all, as I go down with my ‘strengthening US dollar’ ship*, I also mal-projected copper’s upside. I’d felt that $3/lb. would cap Doctor Copper because it is very clear lateral resistance at a handy 38% Fib retrace.**

Is Copper Signalling inflation or Higher Stock Market Prices

An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it is also more nourishing.

  1. L. Mencken

Many pundits associate higher copper prices with inflation. While this is true to a degree, that is the wrong metric to focus on. Higher copper prices are usually associated with an improving economy. For the past few years, Copper which is a leading indicator did not trend in sync with the markets. It was marching to a different drum beat, but a new trend could be in the works. 

Copper has traded past a key resistance point ($3.00), and it has managed to close above this important level on a monthly basis. The long term outlook for copper is now bullish and will remain so as long as it does not close below $2.80 on a monthly basis. Copper is facing resistance in the 3.20-3.25 ranges and as it is now trading in the extremely overbought ranges. As copper is now trading in the extremely overbought ranges, it is more likely to let out some steam before trading past this zone. A healthy consolidation should provide copper with the force needed to challenge the $3.20 ranges and trade as high as $3.80 with a possible overshoot to $4.00, provided it does not close below $2.80 on a monthly basis.

Now that copper has traded past $3.00 on a monthly basis, the Fed deserves another pat on the back for they have managed to further cement the illusion that this economic recovery is real. Copper is seen as a barometer for economic growth, so pulling off a Houdini is probably going to propel a lot of former naysayers to embrace this economic recovery.

Harvey’s Animals and Robot Seals

Hurricane Harvey hit Texas hard. Much of Houston, our largest city, will be uninhabitable for months, maybe years.

We had no damage where I live near Austin, but like most Texans, I have friends and relatives in the affected areas. We’re all doing what we can to help them—thanks to everyone pitching in from other states too.

Watching the news coverage, I’ve noticed a common scene.

Many flood victims bring dogs and cats with them on the Cajun Navy’s small boats. I haven’t seen any rescuers object. They seem to think nothing of it and even welcome the animals aboard.

Leave them behind? Inconceivable. Pets are part of the family.

This is another example of an economic trend I wrote about last year. It’s not reversing, and I doubt it ever will.

True Priorities

As I said, Harvey didn’t hit Austin, but I know what it’s like having to evacuate in a rush.

Our area experienced several huge wildfires back in 2011. One got close enough that we could see the flames. As the wind picked up, firefighters told us to “Get out of there right now!”

Given only minutes to grab what possessions you can—and thinking you will probably lose everything else—you learn your true priorities.

SP500-Trading-Volume-1982-20161. Martin Armstrong: Is the Stock Market Really Overvalued?

   by Martin Armstrong

All we have been hearing since 2011 is how the stock market is going to crash and then there will be hyperinflation and all sorts of strange relationships that never materialize. They simply focus on the level of the stock market in nominal terms without adjusting it for inflation or showing how it has performed relative to the rest of the economy.

2. Dollar Update as Loss of Reserve Currency Status Looms

 by Clive Maund

The dollar is on course to lose its reserve currency status. This is not something that will happen overnight, it will be a process, but at some point there is likely to be a “sea change” in perception, as the world grasps that this is what is happening, which will trigger a cascade of selling leading to its collapse, whereupon gold and silver will rocket higher.
