POLL: Do You Think Putin Is Going To Invade The Ukraine?

In all the years I've been following the markets there comes a time like now, when geopolitics takes center stage. I am of course referring to the recent annexation of the Crimea by Putin. The question now is with a very tepid response from the US and the EU will Putin say to himself Crimea was easy I'll do the same thing with the Ukraine. With an approval rating of 80% back home in Russia, Putin and has little to worry about as he practically walks on water in the minds of most citizens.

Do you think Putin will expand his Crimea take over to the Ukraine?

Obama Gives Putin A Billion Dollars!

A friend sent this to me over the weekend, I thought you might find the premise interesting.



The Ukraine buys almost all its energy (natural gas) from Russia. Revenues from natural gas sales are a primary source of income for Russia.

Because of the recent disagreement between the Ukraine and Russia, Russia is raising the price of the natural gas it sells to the Ukraine.

The Ukraine is almost broke and can't afford the increase in the natural gas price because it would be forced into bankruptcy.

Obama just announced the United States is giving the Ukraine $1 billion to assist in paying for the higher priced natural gas it buys from Russia. Continue reading "Obama Gives Putin A Billion Dollars!"

Social mood is another term for the shared inclination of a society. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is a dramatic example of social mood in action.

The stock market shows the mood of society.

And social mood drives social actions -- like public protests and even war.

That means that if you follow the stock market, you'll know what kinds of events are likely to happen in any country. Continue reading "The Crisis in Ukraine: What's Next?"

Ukraine or No Ukraine - Are Stocks At A Tipping Point?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 5th of March.

There's no question about it, Ukraine and Putin have been causing havoc in the world’s markets. While it's easy to get emotional and jump on one side of the market or the other because of the news, that really is no way to trade. The Trade Triangles are free of human emotion and tend to keep you in the big trends and alert you to new trends as they develop.

From an intellectual level, I don't think that Russia is finished with the Crimea or Ukraine. There's going to be a lot of diplomatic talk, but the bottom line is going to be what Putin wants, he is going to get, no matter what the cost. The Chinese have a saying, "May you live in interesting times" and certainly these are more than interesting times.

So what's ahead? It seems that we are almost at a tipping point in some markets and in other markets it would appear as though we are heading into a multi-year bull market. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) I believe has made a major reversal and has embarked on a multi-year bull market. Continue reading "Ukraine or No Ukraine - Are Stocks At A Tipping Point?"
