A Second Depression Master Plan

We go through a real in-depth discussion this morning of where things are lining up for a potential all-time-high next month (or shortly after). While it is not inevitable, it is becoming increasingly likely as each week continues to bring us confirmation of our long-forecast March area potential All-Time-High. This morning not only will we flesh out some details and give you some trading ideas, but we will also look at the way to prepare for it as we consider parallels to past manias including the 1919-1927 Florida Land bubble … Continue reading

A Fed Rate Discussion

TTo reintegrate our position on what’s ahead, it’s all really very simple: The Election of Trump is a spitting-image of the 1928 election of Herbert Hoover. Tomorrow in our www.peoplenomics.com subscriber newsletter, we will cover parallels between the 2006-2008 real estate bubble and we’ll compare that with the 1920’s Florida Land boom. From Hoover taking the Oath of Office, there were 182 days to the All-Time-Peak as measured by the Dow Jones September 3, 1929. The Hoover-backed Revenue Act of 1929 included a tax reduction. Later, when the Depression had … Continue reading

Coping: Goodbye, Dear Plane

We sold our childhood Thursday. It’s done.  Our dependable old Beechcraft is in the hands of its new owner.  Funds have settled and we are grounded. It’s been a fun ride…and we hope you’ve enjoyed some of our pictures from our air ventures. Was it not for my eyes not being up to it, I would still be flying.  But at 68 and with the Harrison Ford incident out at John Wayne airport (Ford’s only 74) we have decided to exercise the ultimate in good airmanship. Three final safe landings … Continue reading

I Told You This Would Happen

Although the stock market will pull back at the open today, the intriguing topic of the weekend Peoplenomics report is whether we will hit Price or Time in our apparent Replay of 1929: There is a black X (if your eyes are good) which is our first crossing of the present trend with the 1929 data. The red X is the second crossing. The potential upside for the Dow? More on that this weekend for subscribers, but I wanted you to see the chart. One of many we do twice … Continue reading

Coping: Millennial’s Book 7: [keyword: 512 Matrix]

(simple title art) Reader Note: If you are just catching on, each Thursday we’re are doing a chapter each week of a book I’m writing for Millennials – teaching the insights that will (hopefully!) allow them to live long and prosper – and be around to clean up after us Old People who made a mess of getting civilization this far. There are three sections to each chapter. Something you can read to children, a general reader part, and the advanced/business section. We pick up with morning like so… We … Continue reading

PPI and the Cowardly George

The Dow was up a good bit yesterday and Ure’s truly blew out of his latest long (bet the market would go up) position. We may get one – or several – more good runs prior to an all-time high that leads to a huge recession/depression. Or, we may not.  Futures were flat when I checked. The first thing to consider this morning is the Producer Price Index just released: “The Producer Price Index for final demand increased 0.6 percent in January, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics … Continue reading

Coping: Thoughts on Survival Gardening

It’s that time of the year. The mind rotates around to food and plantings… No one in my family has ever been much of a gardener, except for my mom. And frankly, I didn’t learn a whole bunch: Let her and mi sisters pick the Hiumalyana black berries that grow up in the Northwest – and let them do the cheesecloth and dripping. My role was to play with the melted parafin. And I still got some pie and jelly in the deal – great family value stuff. When we … Continue reading

Buckle – Up Monday

You know when Monday is going to be a “building tensions” day when your first round of chess to limber-up the brain goes like this: By the 19th move, the computer was laughing “Mate in 3.”  So I haplessly concluded another entry in my journal:  Don’t play chess near the full moon; scores are lower. Markets, too, get a little nutso around this period.  With yesterday being the full moon, we anticipate things will rally madly for a while, but then calm down, or even decline, as the moon phase … Continue reading

Coping: Process Engineering the Future

So here we are on a quiet Monday. Next couple of days will be hectic as hell, though, so relax and sleep in today – or take a nap if you can – because the second half of the week should rock. Let’s first look at national issues.  The biggie is immigration.  And you will recall that last week we mapped out a bunch of ways president Trump could react…including re-writing Executive Order 12789.  I suggested that because I don’t think there’s a limit on how many E.O.’s a president … Continue reading
