Off The Cuff: The End Of Buying The Dip?

Things are shifting in the markets, ending many trends
Thursday, September 7, 2017, 7:47 PM

In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

  • Bye, Bye Fisher
    • The Fed's Vice Chair steps down
  • Bye, Bye Yellen?
    • Axel thinks Fisher's departure signals Janet Yellen will be out, too
  • No Decision-makers Left
    • Everyone is on the same train when it comes to the "markets"
  • The Future Of The Dollar, Euro, Yuan & Gold
    • Old correlations no longer hold

Chris and Axel cover lots of ground in this week's Off The Cuff with lots of recent seismic moves -- China's yuan-for-oil-for-gold announcement, the latest ECB statement, the resignation of Stanley Fisher (which may presage Yellen's exit when her term is up in early 2018. Things are shifting quickly in the markets, geo-politically, in the world economy -- even in the weather. Axel warns that the long-standing relationships we've all become accustomed to are fading, and that we need to be prepared for different outcomes from what we're used to.

Off The Cuff: Buy The @%&^ Dip!

This phrase will be a widow-maker in the next downturn
Thursday, May 25, 2017, 5:20 PM

In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mike "Mish" Shedlock discuss:

  • Fake, Fictitious Markets
    • None of today's prices is justified by the underlying data
  • Death By Drowning
    • Too much liquidity is killing our markets
  • Housing Bubble Trouble?
    • Prices now declining in the San Francisco Bay Area
  • Buy The @%&^ Dip!
    • What will happen when this universal strategy no longer works?

After last week's brief re-emergence of volatility in the financial markets, the world's various sovereign plunge protection teams have been hard at work flooding liquidity into the system to push prices back up. Losses will not be tolerated!

And so the "Buy the dip!" crowd is victorious once again. This strategy, mindless as it is, has worked extremely well over the past 6 years -- due to an ever-present influx of 'thin air' $billions supplied by the central banks. But for many reasons, that mindless approach can't -- and won't -- continue forever. And likely not for much longer.
