Via Dana Lyons' Tumblr, Since breaking key support 1 year ago, commodities have continued to drop, setting a 13-year low today. This post is not one that is going to spotlight a current potential investment opportunity. In fact, it actually shines the spotlight on a development we highlighted over a year ago. And no, it is not a “told-you-so” or a back-slapper of a post. Consider it more of A) an update and B) a public service announcement. On October 30, 2014, we posted a

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, The "“Jobs Friday" ritual is getting truly absurd. So it can’t be repeated often enough: These artifacts of the BLS’ seasonally maladjusted, trend-cycle modeled, heavily imputed/crafted and five times revised “jobs” numbers have precious little to do with the real health of the main street economy. Indeed, the six-year run of job gains since early 2010 primarily represent “born-again

Five Years Ago There were a couple major points of discussion this week in 2010. The first was the latest Wikileaks document release, which stirred ire from the president who was "considering" legal action as the DOJ tried to figure out how it could twist US law to charge Julian Assange. In the mean time, the government was putting the pressure on others to censor the site, convincing Amazon to refuse to host Wikileaks (though some pointed out Amazon seemed fine with not censoring

By EconMatters    Mario Draghi is a Hype Machine   The Gold Market is pretty interesting here as investors realized on Thursday that much that comes out of Mario Draghi`s mouth is complete hyperbole, because things aren`t nearly as dire in Europe as some bankers try to persuade for additional stimulus out of the ECB, and Germany isn`t going to sign off on the extreme bazooka stimulus measures because Germans by nature are conservative, and there is a commensurate symmetry

Friday's release of a "just right" jobs report, in which the US economy reportedly added 211,000 jobs, more than the 200,000 expected, solidified its position as the "most important" one in recent years, after it was broadly interpreted by economists as the sufficient condition for the Fed to hike rates on December 16, 7 years to the day after the same Fed cut rates to zero. As such, if indeed the Fed does hike, over the next several quarters, the US labor data will take a secondary place in
