You load 16 tons and whaddyget?

What Kondratieff is telling us..

Way back in the days of wind up gramophones, my first 78 was that great number by Merle Travis. Reading an article this morning it resonated as China is said to have added just under 16 tons of Goldto it's reserves.

Maybe it's just the Gold bugs dropping bullish articles around the internet in an attempt to pump up prices. Perhaps they are the same people who tell us the Fed keep dumping massive numbers of Gold sell contracts whenever the price rallies.

Who will win this trade war?

Will Trump give way, roll over and save the talks by winding back on the latest tariff hike, or will the Chinese compromise and agree to curb their expanding technology sector?

Trump has an ego that won't let go and the Chinese cannot lose face, hence the impasse. This is as high a stakes game as ever there was. The latest salvo from China describing the US position as "naked economic terrorism" sets the scene for further escalation.

It's all about China (again)

Plus, don't miss the discount ends Tuesday

The stock and currency markets have been locked in a bi-polar zig zag. It's the China trade talks, or lack of them, that powers the market. It zigs up when ever the mood music is good, then zags down again into depression as the two sides appear as intractable as ever. And that's what just happened this week as the doom intensified:

Stock market manipulation

The second story is how the stock market is about to collapse. The story is getting a little stale now as each mini sell off leads to another rally. Is it because the US Fed has put on hold any more rate rises or is it because of the impending wonderful US-China trade deal, etc?

Back in 1982 stock market manipulation was made legal. Not all manipulation of course but just share buy backs by companies. US congress is now getting hot and bothered. They have only just realised that Trumps tax cuts, and offshore repatriation of overseas company profits, were spent buying back their own shares, not paid out as special dividends. And so they want to ban buybacks again.

Dear Trader and Clickevents reader

I guess we all have a natural naivety built into our DNA. We like to believe what we are told, particularly if we respect the source of the telling. It's also a herd thing. If lots of people are told the same thing, they tend to start agreeing with each other. After all, it must true if everyone believes it.

Far too frequently our beliefs turn out to be the opposite of reality. Central Bankers, politicians and economic gurus' words, statements and policies frequently prove to be the opposite of what actually happens.

As with many things, personal naivety has a spectrum. Ranging from 'I believe everything and everyone', through to the opposite, totally sceptical view, of believing nothing unless seen and experienced first hand.

Way back, in my youth, I had a spell in the car trade that taught me everything I needed to know about supply and demand, pricing and presentation. I rapidly realised I could never believe anyone's description of how wonderful was the condition of their trade in car!

I soon learned to believe 0% of what I heard and no more than 50% of what I could see. A useful policy for anyone trading the markets.
