@Leon When the U.S. #economy enters recession, we can expect #Trump to call for massive monetary and fiscal stimulus. That's why he calls the Dollar as to high and demands interest rates to stay low. He wants to inflate debt away as most of the European governments and the central banks. #inflation #gold #commodities https://mises.org/blog/trump-abandons-economic-reforms-embrace-war-spending

@Leon @stateside - there are so many war scenarios going on right now with Syria / Iran / Russia / #NorthKorea and even China, that I believe the sabre rattling serves as a distraction from domestic problems in the U.S.(tax-reform, health-care issues, debt-ceiling etc) and the EU as well (integration problems, election in France, national indebtedness of Greece, Italy etc., independent movements > Brexit etc. and NATO's Turkey with its nuclear weapons arsenal in Incirlik on the brink to dictatorship). How does it come that #Trump changed his agenda so fast from "Why waste American lives and American wealth on wars you can't win?" .. Because "the elite" gain power and money from foreign wars! #oil #gold #copper #iron-ore www.internationalman.com/articles/heavily-armed-swamp-critters

@Leon "I authorize my military" Trump says and gives Generals more freedom on ISIS fight. www.wsj.com/articles/trump-gives-generals-free-rein-on-isis-fight-1492218994 - Here is a short timeline of the Pentagon taking the presidential commander-in-chief power away from #Trump On April 16th, the US Army makes largest deployment of troops to #Somalia since the 90s. What does this actually mean for the rest of us? #oil #gold #copper #iron-ore www.thesaker.is/trump-has-lost-control-over-the-pentagon/

@Goldfinger Tops are a process. Very few market participants (if any) get them right and they take time to play out. Take 10-year treasury yields as an example: http://cdn.ceo.ca/1cfcg7n-TNX_4.18.2017.png+ A topping process has been playing out for months and in the last week we have seen a breakdown below previous support (~2.30%). In December I wrote a blog post highlighting the unsustainable sentiment and market positioning that was SHORT treasury futures (betting on higher yields): http://www.321gold.com/editorials/ceotechnician/ceotechnician121416.html I was a day early, yields peaked the next day. Now we are seeing this big move down in yields confirmed by cyclical stocks like $FCX $GLEN.L $VALE $X to name a few. Might be a good time for $Trump to deliver on some of that infrastructure spending...

@Leon "The revelation that the Pentagon didn't send the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier directly towards #NorthKorea as a stern message to Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programs sparked ridicule in some corners of Asia".. and makes #Trump a laughing stock once again. Really, who is willing to die for such a President? #politics #taxreform #infrastructureprogram #oil www.wsj.com/articles/false-narrative-on-u-s-aircraft-carrier-elicits-jeers-in-asia-1492577625 www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-carl-vinson-carrier-wasnt-on-way-to-north-korea-1492559713

@anomalloy World finance leaders are gathering on U.S. President Donald #Trump 's home turf on Thursday to try to nudge his still-evolving policies away from protectionism and show broad support for open trade and global integration. http://ca.reuters.com/article/businessNews/idCAKBN17M0EP-OCABS

@Goldfinger @lukejackson $Trump is a salesman, he can't stop himself from saying things like "BIG" "the best" and constantly talking about things in binary terms i.e. winning vs. losing. It's not a good precedent when the President of the wealthiest country in the world is constantly making promises (and timelines) he doesn't keep. What ever happened to underpromising and over-delivering?

@Leon #Trump now realises the only way his presidency can prosper is to encourage capital flight into America from abroad, and have the debt limit raised to accomodate it. The latest war-mongering against #NorthKorea #Syria and possibly #Iran has much to do with persuading Congress to raise the debt ceiling. This is the end game for the #Dollar and a new dawn for #gold and #silver >Gold's glaring omission https://wealth.goldmoney.com/research/goldmoney-insights/americas-financial-war-strategy/

@jmm Why Canada is unlikely to retaliate to the US on new lumber tariffs. see https://www.cdhowe.org/sites/default/files/attachments/research_papers/mixed/Working%20paper_2017%20Jan_0.pdf "Historically, Canada responded to trade shocks by seeking new trade opportunities elsewhere" See table 3 for an interesting simulation about it. Pages 8,9,10. with one exception: 1930 Smoot–Hawley: Canada imposed tariffs on 16 products: 30% of US exports to Canada. After the US tariffs in lumber, the Canadian currency is moving lower making the Canadian economy more competitive. What is next in Trump's list: wine / Energy / dairy Products? http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/for-a-troubled-trump-canada-is-easy-pickings/ar-BBAjphX? http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/04/24/rachel-notley-donald-trum_n_16209596.html #Trump #economics #lumber #trade #politics

@Goldfinger USD/CAD move is the market predicting fewer greenbacks will be flowing north under $Trump's trade war policies.

@Goldfinger What if knee-jerk reaction of buying $USD is wrong? Tariffs and protectionist policy should actually be negative for a country's currency, the US is different in some ways because of its size of international trade and current account deficits. But US benefits greatly from its 'float' of USD held overseas. What if those dollar holders say "F U" and exchange for euros or $gold or whatever other currency and a tit for tat takes place with US exports which have a comparative advantage with other countries? Thinking out loud here, and $Trump is clear that he doesn't want a strong dollar....

@Highheat I hope this is helpful to some...On Feb. 14th I posted this..@Highheat Been waiting about 4 years to pick up shares in Canam Group $CAM cheap. Got my opportunity this morning. #Trump #Infrastructure. Well fast forward to today and $CAM Canam got taken private for about a 100% premium but the problem is I sold it shortly after buying it. I sold because my fear was that Trump would not use a Canadian company to rebuild US infrastructure...."Men who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon. I found it one of the hardest things to learn. But it is only after a stock operator has firmly grasped this that he can make big money. It is literally true that millions come easier to a trader after he knows how to trade than hundreds did in the days of his ignorance." – Jesse Livermore My point is just being able to recognize deep value is not enough but in fact it takes character to accumulate true wealth. I really hope that I can finally learn this lesson which has cost me more profits than I can even care to recall. We live in a world where it is harder than ever to be right and sit tight but that is what great investors do. John Templeton said never sell a stock unless you have found one that is a 50% better buy which is a good guideline to keep us from trading into poverty.

@Goldfinger I guess $Trump wasn't briefed on how the game is played: http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-says-hell-revisit-horrible-us-south-korea-trade-deal-demands-payment-for-missile-defenses-2017-4 Trump could single handedly destroy US dollar's role as reserve currency. So far he's doing a good job.

@Excelsior #Korelin Economics Report - WEEKEND SHOW – SAT 29 APR, 2017 * INVESTORS AGAIN FAVORING RISK ON ASSETS * "This week started off with a bang. The US markets gaped up along with a major gap down in #volatility (Dana Lyons has some comments in segment 3). Investors continue to shine a very positive light on risk assets which in turn made #gold and other risk off assets sell off. This general concept is discussed along with #Trump’s tax plan and a couple important company updates, one from Mariana Resources on the sale to Sandstorm Gold." >> Segment 1 & 2: The first two segments I am joined by Peter Boockvar, Chief Market Analysts for the Lindsay Group. We discuss the state of the US #economy focusing on the auto sector and consumer and business spending. In the second segment we look at #inflation which seems to be peaking for the time being. > Segment 3: Dana Lyons outline the historic moves in the $VIX that we saw this week. > Segment 4: Chris Martenson from PeakProsperity.com shares his views on the Trump #tax plan. >> Segment 5 & 6: To kick off the second hour Sean Brodrick is back on the show with a new newsletter! We discuss the state of the #gold market and in the second segment he mentions a number of companies ranging from #producers to #explorers and a few #silver companies. > Segment 7: A update from $AUG Auryn Resources on the mobilization to the Committee Bay project. > Segment 8: Big news this week regarding $MARL Mariana Resources and $SSL $SAND Sandstorm Gold. Glen Parsons joins me to discuss the deal and what it means for shareholders. http://www.kereport.com/2017/04/29/investors-favoring-risk-assets/

@Leon There's not much Western media coverage about next weeks election in South Korea on 9 May. The likely winner is a liberal, Moon Jae-in, who wants to reopen talks with #NorthKorea and a review of the THAAD anti-missile system, South Korea doesn't want to pay for anyway. So what is going on with #Trump's foreign policy and his armada in Chinese waters? www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/trumps-terrifying-cluelessness/19762

@Leon Merkels "Watershed Moment" comes right after her conversation with Barack Obama who got awarded with the national peace prize by the German Book Association. They are all in line with Macron's demand for a European Economic Ministry, Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen's demands for a European Army and Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriels' demand to raise military spending .. in my view they are using the momentum against #Trump and his reliability to bring the global agenda on a fast track and if it crashes, they've someone to blame ;-)

@Leon I don't see any difference if the U.S. stays to the Paris climate accord or pulls out - there's still no bio-kerosene for fighter-jets or environmentally friendly bombs available. Therefore, this whole planet will be blown apart anyway, with or without atta boy. #NorthKorea #Syria #Trump

@Leon @nobshere - I agree with your latest remark on #Trump and I wouldn't be happy with Hillary as POTUS neither. The american people elected their president in a democratic way, that has to be respected. Before his flip-flops I really thought he would #draintheswamp and make a change within the corrupt Washington. What I see now is a bully who makes everyone his enemy like in #Europe while supporting terror regimes like Saudi Arabia in use for the military industrial complex. By doing so, Trump is recklessly adding fuel to an already explosive Middle East, pushing the whole world into even more violent confrontations. It really scares me that people do like him as a President if he bombs other countries like #Syria or to raise his approval rate with an armada sent to #NorthKorea www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/05/29/nato-recoils-from-trump-spending-salvos.html

@Leon #Trump's decision to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Accord is short-sighted and ill-informed and it will make the US less and less competitive globally and could lead to carbon tariffs. The US is responsible for ~18% of the World's pollution. Even Saudi Arabia has ratified the climate accords and now Russia (~8% of global emissions) can completely embarrass the US by ratifying the treaty, once again showing how Putin stands with #Europe against the US. #lithium #silver www.climateanalytics.org/hot-topics/ratification-tracker.html

@EpsteinResearch President #Trump suggested his oft-promised border wall could be covered in solar panels in a meeting with congressional leaders, according to sources familiar with the conversation. Trump had convened Republican leaders at the White House for a conversation about their legislative agenda, largely on health care and the debt ceiling. But during the meeting Trump also suggested his border wall could be built with solar panels as a way to pay for it, according to sources familiar with the conversation.
