January 23:    Miners - Turning Up From Mild Pullbacks. Many of the precious metal miners are turning up after healthy pullbacks. The XAU, HUI, GDX and GDXJ have generated Springboard Buys (oversold within flat to rising trends) in the last few days. Risk can now be raised to the recent lows.

“Dealing In The Foreseeable Future”

Charts & Markets had its origins back in the 1970s, when Bob built a “model” from the price history of metals and was retained by some large mining companies. In 1981, presentations to financial institutions included the observation that “No matter how much the Fed prints, stocks will outperform commodities.” Being early in an era of financial bubbles, this was controversial. The “Markets” side of our name includes forecasts of probable major turning points for stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities.

The historical work on potential market excesses has been backed up with Ross Clark’s outstanding abilities to methodically determine technical excesses, either up or down. In so many words, the “Charts” part of our logo, identifies excesses at likely turning points. A “Springboard Buy” registered on November 3rd, 2016.

Bob’s work on the history of political “markets” enabled the call on the popular uprising that is actually the early stages of the greatest reform movement since the early 1600s. A key essay was “American Spring” published on July 4, 2016. Updated on September 28th, it outlined that the popular uprising would likely be successful in the US election, that November 8th.
