Weekly Futures Recap With Mike Seery

We've asked Michael Seery of SEERYFUTURES.COM to give our INO readers a weekly recap of the Futures market. He has been Senior Analyst for close to 15 years and has extensive knowledge of all of the commodity and option markets.

Michael frequently appears on multiple business networks including Bloomberg news, Fox Business, CNBC Worldwide, CNN Business, and Bloomberg TV. He is also a guest on First Business, which is a national and internationally syndicated business show.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday at 1,177 while currently trading at 1,162 an ounce down about $15 for the trading week after hitting a 10 month low on December 5th at 1,158. However, the trend remains bearish as I think this is just a kickback from oversold conditions. Gold prices are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is lower as bearish fundamentals continue to send money out of this commodity as higher interest rates here in the United States and a strong U.S dollar continue to keep a lid and put pressure on this market here in the short-term. I am sitting on the sidelines in this market as the chart structure has been very poor for several months as prices collapsed right after the Trump election and have not looked back as I'm currently looking at a possible bullish position in silver, but gold still looks to have another leg down in my opinion. At present, I'm also recommending a bullish position in the S&P 500 as it seems to me the higher the equity market goes the lower the gold market goes as I think that trend will continue for the rest of the holiday season which still has 3 weeks left.

Cannabis Stocks Flashing Buy After Worst Week Of Year

Analysis originally distributed on November 23, 2016 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

If anyone thought investing in weed stock was going to be easy, this week was a reality check.

Cannabis stocks collided with two obstacles in the last week.

The first, four of the largest Canadian medical marijuana stocks were temporarily halted because of high levels of volatility.

For example, last Wednesday Canopy Growth Corp (CGC) was surging into a new all-time high above $17 – up more than 20% on the day.

While that was great news for shareholders, it set off the Toronto Stock Exchanges (TSE) circuit breaker. Shares were temporarily halted so the exchange engines wouldn’t melt down like a hunk of warm cheese.

Aphria (APH), the second-largest Canadian medical marijuana company, and Organigram (OGI), the third-largest Canadian medical marijuana company, were also halted last week after hitting new all-time highs.

The trading halts only lasted a few minutes at a time.

However, damage was inflicted. [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,181 an ounce while now trading at 1,175 hitting a fresh 8 month low as prices continue to move southward on a weekly basis as I am kicking myself as I am not short, however, I have not been picking a bottom either. At present, I'm telling investors to avoid this market, but certainly, do not be buying this commodity as I do believe lower prices are ahead as I'm still very bullish the U.S dollar and the stock market as a whole since both of those are negative towards gold prices. The 10-year note today broke 2.40% which is the highest yield since January and I do believe interest rates are going higher which is not another negative influence towards gold prices.

Canadian Cannabis Stocks are Surging

Analysis originally distributed on November 16, 2016 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

It’s been a tale of two markets for cannabis stocks.

On one hand, U.S. cannabis stocks have struggled since eight U.S. states approved new marijuana programs last Tuesday.

For example, industry leader Terra Tech (TRTC) is down 18% in the last five days. Kush Bottles (KSHB) is down 35%.

On the other, Canadian cannabis stocks have been killing it.

Canopy Growth Corp (CGC), the largest medical marijuana company in Canada is up 74% in the last week. Aphria (APH) is up 51%. Organigram (OGI) is up 46%.

This has a lot of cannabis investors scratching their heads.

After all, didn’t the U.S. market just see a big wave of legalization? [Read more...]

Politically-Driven S.O.D. (Sons of Druckenmiller) To Lose Again

By: Gary Tanashian of biiwii.com

You know who they are; they are the ones who denied and denied the ginned up bull market in US stocks that nearly tripled under the socialist regime, circa 2009-2016.  They are the ones who clung to gold well past the caution point last summer.  They are (yes, it’s another snappy buzz phrase to either entertain, bore or annoy you… ) the S.O.D., AKA the Sons of Druckenmiller, AKA politically biased and newly activated market participants.  Reference…

Druckenmiller:  Get out of the stock market, own gold (this helped load the boat full of ill-fated gold bugs in the spring).

The night Trump was elected president, Stanley Druckenmiller dumped gold (this signaled the beginning of reparations to gold’s sentiment profile).  He also became very bullish on the stock market; go figure.

Still feel like following the MSM and these media stars they shove down gullible peoples’ throats?

So the well known and much respected Druck was bullish on gold and bearish on the US stock market until he famously flipped his script literally upside down in a knee-jerked response to the presidential election, which cast off the commies and brought in a man who promised to ‘reshore’ America’s outsourced industries (folks, the smoke stacks are gone and they are not coming back, although more Robots may well be, in time).*  He has promised to cut taxes including especially, corporate taxes, and he has promised myriad other fixes to help the economy trickle down to the long-abused middle class.
