The Old Normal

From the April 5, 2018 HRA Journal: Issue 285

Gold got a nice lift off after a widely expected rate hike, but it’s been flat to down as markets have been trading very strangely against each other.  We’ve seen continued high levels of volatility, but those haven’t translated to real risk aversion on the part of equity traders.

Add the politics, namely a trade skirmish between the US and China that could still potentially become a trade war, and we have a market that probably should be more concerned than it seems to be.  Traders are not taking the US president seriously, or at least are assuming cooler heads in the White House will prevail.  I’m not sure that’s realistic anymore as the list of cooler heads at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave seems to be getting shorter and shorter.

Conference Week

From the March 12, 2018 HRA Journal: Issue 284     

It was a busy week at both MIF and PDAC.  News flow has slowed right down now though.  I do expect news in the next couple of weeks from a handful of HRA list companies that have drill and field programs underway.  Those are listed in the first page of the update section.

A return of risk on markets and expectations of a Fed rate hike this month have kept gold in the lower part of its recent trading range.  The last few times the Fed raised rates we saw good gold rallies following them. I’m hoping for another one after the March Fed meeting. Read More

Tug of War

From the March 4, 2018 HRA Journal: Issue 283

The markets have calmed down a bit but the White House is injecting plenty of political uncertainty.  I’m surprised Wall St is taking things as well as it is.  Seems like traders think tax cuts (excuse the pun) trump everything else.  We’ll see.  The complacency didn't work out so well a month ago so I wouldn’t get carried away with it.

I’m finishing this issue at PDAC, having just finished a highly successful inaugural Toronto MIF. I should really be trolling the booths, but the news has been piling up and I wanted to get these updates off to you.  Note that the “news cut off” is March 2nd.  There were lots more news releases as I was finishing this today, and I expect a bunch more tomorrow.  Those will be dealt with in the next issue which I’ll start this weekend.  I had planned to add a copper explorer that is already familiar to SD subscribers in this issue but there were so many updates there wasn’t room.  I’ll get to it in the next issue.  I don’t expect any short-term news from that company, so it shouldn’t make much difference.
