Faber 's typically controversial and contrarian views have earned him the label of Dr. Doom, though even his harshest critics must admit that he's been unerringly correct in his market forecasts over the past three decades. He also trades currencies and commodity futures like Gold, Natural Gas and Crude Oil.

Welcome to Deflation

Inflation

People are just starting to grasp why deflation is also present in the USA. Despite all the screaming about Quantitative Easing, most remain confused why hyperinflation has not taken place. Most are Oblivious to the fact that there is a dynamic process involved that is a lot more complex than traditional economics teaches in school. Sorry, but the quantity of money theory does not work. It is way too simplistic and this has led to massive confusion. Even the central bankers are starting to call with questions. Economics is just not as it seems and it has ignored international capital flows confining all analysis to purely domestic situations.

Whole-FoodsThe latest news that Amazon was buying Whole Foods saw a plunge in retail and grocery stocks. Amazon put book stores on the list of bankruptcy victims and we see similar troubles for Sears, the company that made its name using the railroads to deliver goods by mail order – the internet of the 19th century.

The deflationary tone has been in place since 2015.75 and it is a combination of problems, one of which is the technology advancement. Many people see the advance of robots displacing jobs. However, the reason unemployment rose dramatically to 25% during the Great Depression was not from the collapse of industry. It was (1) the advancement of technology with the combustion engine that wiped out agricultural jobs (aside from the horse industry) and (2) the vast dust bowl which then wiped out farms entirely.

Could Recent FANG Weakness Be Signaling the End of the Bull Run?

As we survey the financial markets and global economic backdrop, it appears that a change in the wind could be slowly taking place. Across the tides of global capital markets, a chillier wind may be starting to blow, ushering in what could soon be some sweeping changes in the major trends for primary capital markets. In China, the air of debt deleveraging seems to be taking root, with tightness in the money markets, bond market collapses, bond market closures, and inverted yield curves. In addition, there are also widespread rumors surrounding the viability of an assortment of wealth management products that have embedded duration mismatch problems baked into the cake.

Here at home in the USA, boom times remain in full swing with stock market averages busting out to new highs seemingly day-after-day. Yet, behind the bullish headlines, there seems to be developing a clear pattern of parabolic (terminal) excess within the technology space, a pattern familiar to those market watchers who recall 1999 and 2008.

Above: A basket of Large Cap Technology Stocks with Intermediate ARMS (inverted) is also extremely overbought. These types of readings tend to highlight medium term extremes so even if prices recover, there is a larger overtone to this type of bearish reading.

More Fluctuations Along New Record Highs, Will Stocks Continue Higher?

Our intraday outlook is bearish, and our short-term outlook is bearish. Our medium-term outlook remains neutral, following S&P 500 index breakout above last year's all-time high:

Intraday outlook (next 24 hours): bearish
Short-term outlook (next 1-2 weeks): bearish
Medium-term outlook (next 1-3 months): neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): neutral

The U.S. stock market indexes were mixed between -0.3% and +0.7% on Wednesday, as investors continued to hesitate following recent volatility. The S&P 500 index has reached new all-time high at the level of 2,453.82 on Monday following breakout above its short-term consolidation along the level of 2,420-2,440. It is currently trading 0.7% below that new record high. Stocks have rebounded strongly after their mid-May quick two-session sell-off and continued over eight-year-long bull market off 2009 lows. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has reached yet another new all-time high at the level of 21,535.03 on Tuesday. The technology Nasdaq Composite was relatively stronger than the broad stock market yesterday, as it gained 0.7%. However, it continued to trade well below its June 9 high. The nearest important support level of the S&P 500 index is at around 2,430-2,435, marked by Monday's daily gap up of 2,433.15-2,441.79. The next level of support is at 2,415-2,420, marked by some recent local lows. The support level is also at 2,400-2,410, marked by the May 25 daily gap up of 2,405.58-2,408.01, among others. On the other hand, level of resistance is at 2,450-2,455, marked by new all-time high. There have been no confirmed negative signals so far. However, we can see overbought conditions and negative technical divergences. The S&P 500 index is trading within its two-week-long consolidation again, as we can see on the daily chart:
