Our 2017 Christmas Letter

In higher education circles it would be called an SER (self-evaluation report) and people would read it knowingly.

This morning we review how well our market model has done this year (amazingly well, BTW) and we consider a bit of what’s ahead for 2017.  But, not before some talk of the new CPI data (which sucks) and plenty of coffee and charts…

A New Economic Paradigm?

This morning we take a jaunt into the very heart of economic thought.  We’ll be looking at the component-level as to what “makes up” price discovery.

What we come to is the idea that we have emphasized the wrong thing. E.G. the existing paradigm has promoted high unit-volumes of goods.  But, QUALITY has been abandoned because of our belief that “more work is good.”  With Robotics on the horizon, this is plain stupid thinking.  Which we will discuss more deeply after some headlines and where the charts and models have us heading next week..

What’s NOT in "Dimensions Next Door"

Ure is tired this morning — that’s what happens when one stays up all night and talks on CoastToCoastAM with George Noory.  As a result,, this morning we will have a blissfully to-the-point discussion of the charts and the new book (and print edition with free Kindle version) is just out, Dimensions Next Door: Hacking Space-time

You see, the problem is I left something out – and it’s important.  So we will get to that after a few headlines and a look at the market..

Crooked Thinking on the "National Debt"

This morning we explain how the fabled $20.5-trillion in national debt is really more like $61-trillion in debt.

And since we’re in such a dandy, caring, sharing, and giving mood, we will also explain how the supposed Tax Cut passed by the Senate really screws everyone and will at far more than the MSM-hyped $1.4 trillion.

We sure know how to have fun, don’t we?  Gnosh-up, bean-up, and off we go…

Is Bitcoin a "War Substitute?"

Here is a question that will intrigue you if you look for any length of time at Long Wave Economics.  Are there substitutes for ‘war’?  If so, how would government test-bed an economic substitute?  Not too many hints should be needed:  Simply think Satoshi.’  The New World Order’s plan to take down the financial system of sovereign countries.  One World, here we come…

After some headlines and coffee, we inspect the Long Wave and notice where the WTC/9-11 happened and where Bitcoins were introduced.  Two data points doesn’t make a trend but should it raise questions while we can still ask?

The “Secret River”

This past week, I was telling you about how it seems to me  that there is a distinct lack of “adventure” in America among the Millennials.

Sure, life’s hard, sorting out what gender and which of umpteen programming jobs they want.  But after the charts today and a few headlines, a real treat.  A buddy of mine who lived out in “them thar hills”  (and is another old man of the web) shares one of the most interesting tales of adventure you’ll ever here.  So, throw another log on the fire…

Trump’s Tumbler

With a year from the election of Donald Trump, it’s time to begin work on our economics (and therefore market) outlooks for 2018.

As a starting point for this seasonal review I wanted to begin this morning with a look at two years of data in order to assess whether economic  progress has been “real” or “perceptual.” 

After coffee, headlines and those damn bullish charts that as of last week had been calling this bull market run spot-on for over a year..

Scenarios for the Future

We take some time this morning to look at crypto currencies, the future of autos, and where gold may go.

These are all topics of immediate concern to subscribers…but first a few headlines and a look at the charts.  Which, as we expected, ended the week in the U.S. right on our 9-day moving averages…

When Not to Follow Trading Models

One of our readers asked an interesting question that deserves a comprehensive answer this morning:  What is the point of all the Peoplenomics research and charts if *Ure’s truly*  doesn’t religiously follow his own models?

FOGODfear of gap opening down – –which the market is set to deliver in an unusually timely way as our example today at the open. After our usual headlines and coffee, natch.
