Trump Buries Tea Party He Once Praised – Ep. 486

Participate in my next YouTube Live Challenge next Monday, July 29, 9pm EDT The Topic: It's Inflation, NOT Deflation Not to Praise the Tea Party but to Bury It President Trump originally won the Republican nomination by appealing largely to what used to be the Tea Party. A lot of Tea Party Republicans ended up embracing Donald Trump; in fact I think a lot of the support that might have otherwise gone to Rand Paul (a Tea Party favorite who went to Washington in 2010 as part of the Tea Party...

A Podcast from Freedom Fest in Las Vegas I'm still here in Last Vegas at Freedom Fest, but I wanted to take some time out to come up to my hotel room here and record a short podcast - otherwise I'd have to wait until Tuesday. There's been a lot of stuff that's happened over the last few days, so I definitely wanted to record something; the quality might not be up to snuff. But I figured I'd talk a little bit about what's been going on in the market. The Action Was in the Metals Markets...

The spread got to almost 93:1, where you can buy 93 ounces of silver for one ounce of gold -...

First Live YouTube Event Welcome to the Peter Schiff Bitcoin Challenge. First of all, I have to make a confession. I really was not familiar with YouTube live streaming and live chatting, and so the way I thought about this in my head; I thought that people were going to be able to talk. Like a Skype group conversation. People would be able to actually engage me and make their case in their own voice, and to be able to have a little back and forth. Post a Cogent Argument I didn't realize...

Recorded June 14, 2019 Gold: Up Today When I recorded my podcast last Friday, I speculated that the price of gold might gap up the following Monday above $1350/oz., but that didn't happen because over the weekend Donald Trump managed to tweet out a face-saving way in which to not impose the tariffs on Mexican products that may have gone into effect on Monday. The markets breathed a sigh of relief. So, instead of gapping up. the price of gold went the opposite direction and gapped down....

But gold actually gapped in the other direction. It gapped down about $13 and it was down all day - never filled that gap. Catalyst for Sell-off The catalyst for the gold sell-off was Donald Trump calling off the tariffs that were supposed to go into...

In fact, on Monday, the tech stocks in particular got beaten up. The NASDAQ dropped by better than 150 points, led lower by the so-called FANG stocks (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google). Google and Facebook, the biggest drop - I think it was something like 6-8%. Part of that had to do with the Justice Department investigating Google. Enlisting the...

Remember, the market was starting to factor in rate cuts, not just an end to the tightening cycle, but the beginning of the next easing cycle. And Jerome...
