Even more “Drano” — Just how bad IS this Mess, Anyhow?

Chris Temple 0

This past week the Federal Reserve announced yet another MASSIVE increase to its "Not-Q.E." program which started the middle of September. Though it raised a few more eyebrows, markets by and large continue their sleep walking, smug in the view that they can spend their time worrying more about impeachment…

THE Blockbuster new part of that Phase One China Deal

Chris Temple 0

(Excerpted from the October 12 issue) On most issues concerning the man I occasionally refer to as "The Orange Wonder," matters and policies are looked at by both Trump sycophants and those with T.D.S. (Trump Derangement Syndrome) with a pre-existing bias based on their already-opinionated views of the 45th President.…

UPDATED: Ecuador’s Turmoil — and Moreno’s Unpardonable Sin

Chris Temple 0

(From the first regular issue for October) Having over the last several years distinguished myself among my peers as a "first mover" of sorts where the story of Ecuador's nascent mining industry is concerned, it likewise falls to me to cut through the emotions and politics to explain as best…

It’s “Gut Check Time” over China…and for Trump

Chris Temple 0

Commentary -- October 4, 2019 These days the only interest the Establishment media and the Democrat Party have over China is whether or not Donald Trump will push them to "investigate" Joe Biden ("Orange Man bad!!" "Impeach 45!!") Yet while the Democrat Party renders itself ever more a clown show…

China on a Cliff’s Edge

Chris Temple 0

(Cover story of the Aug. 12, 2019 Issue) As I describe further along in the issue going out to Members this coming week, the time has clearly come due to the events of just the last 10 days or so to go to a considerably more defensive portfolio posture. Part…

“The World Turned Upside Down”

Chris Temple 0

(From the July 29, 2019 issue) Markets seem both oblivious to and unprepared for a MAJOR change that's looming in the world: the end of "Globalization" as we have known it for three-quarters of a century. As I write in the cover story of this new issue, though Donald Trump…

The Vicious Circle of Factors that Could Impact the U.S. Dollar…and more

Chris Temple 0

As one part of its initial response to the latest tariffs imposed/threatened by President Trump, China has itself threatened it could retaliate by "dumping" its stash of U.S. Treasury debt (it owns about 5% of the total debt outstanding.) This, of course, gives rise to a new wave of warnings…

The Modern Monetary Theory “Debate”

Chris Temple 0

(From the April 15, 2019 Issue) -- I put "Debate" in quotes above since what you are hearing on this suddenly-HOT issue is, for the most part, just another scripted and canned one delivered to us by the Establishment and its two kept political parties. As I explain, there could…

A year in the life of Fed Chair Jerome Powell

Chris Temple 0

(Posted Feb. 6, 2019) -- With all the attention on the president's State of the Union address last night and myriad other matters, you can be forgiven for forgetting that yesterday marked the one-year anniversary at his present post of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Here's a look back at an…

Chris Temple 0

(Posted January 31, 2019) -- I explained following the market close yesterday (Wednesday) why the surprising move in even more of a dovish direction than anyone expected is not ALL good news.

China is the Number One Worry as we enter 2019

Chris Temple 0

(Posted Jan. 3, 2019) -- Even before the breaking BOMBSHELL news from Apple, my cover story for the year's very first issue for Members had to do with China. With the Federal Reserve having started the process of walking back its hawkish stance of 2018, this puts China in the…

The Odd Couple perks up; end of the line for the Fed coming?

Chris Temple 0

Yesterday (Thursday the 15th) I sent out some thoughts to our broader audience on the most important development in the markets of the recent past: Jerome Powell just blinked. While -- as I point out both in my written comments and on yesterday's podcast -- we can't quite yet get…

NEITHER TRUMP NOR OBAMA DESERVE THE PRIMARY CREDIT FOR THE CURRENT “BOOM”

Chris Temple 0

Among the ever more entertaining (and ever more disingenuous and childish) political discourse of recent days has been the public pissing contest between The Donald and his predecessor in the White House over who deserves the credit for the current boffo state of the U.S. economy and markets. In this excerpt…
