Correction importante à venir sur les marchés principaux

Plusieurs fois dans mes billets je me suis avancé sur la possible (probable) correction à venir.

Le timing me fait défaut depuis un bon moment.

Les injections monétaires et taux d’intérêts négatifs tronquent complétement le jeu !

Je veux juste rendre attentif que je sens que nous ne sommes pas loin d’un top de marché important.

Quelques indicateurs qui me font penser cela.

#Gold and the US #dollar: The closing of the gold window in 1971

50 years ago, on August 15, President Richard Nixon closed the “gold window”. It was a “temporary” measure according to what he said on TV this Sunday. With governments, temporary has a very different meaning…


Nixon was forced to do that: The US had printed too much dollars and had not enough gold to redeem all the foreign-held greenbacks.


Have a look at this hereafter chart and you’ll get it immediately.


We are in a pure fiat monetary system since then. Nothing backs the US dollar (or other currencies) except some “confidence”.


The US, supposedly, still have 8,135 tons of gold. The US government refused to audit the gold since 1953. Surprise, surprise…

And in the mean time China is claiming to have more than 14,000 tons : https://goldbroker.com/news/china-gold-reserves-scale-up-for-15-consecutive-years-by-2020-2451

both should be audited

Commodities and precious metals (versus US stock markets) make a new 100 YEAR low

Amazing ! This is the only word I can tell today.

Despite increase in commodities prices, the GSCI commodity index cannot fight (till now) the skyrocketing US stock market.

I would like to mention that the biggest wheight in this index is Oil : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%26P_GSCI

And oil went up recently.

But if we compare this commodity index to the US stock market, this is what we see

First graph vs the DJ index

And vs the SP500

Thanks to Willem Middelkoop for the graph

As already many times said, the stock market seems overvalued !

And the best of is : Precious metals vs commodities index ! If Commodities are low let me show you how low are the precious metals (thanks Crescat)

it is clearly a strong buy !

happy Investing

Golden Flash Crash (english version)

At the opening of the commodity market, gold has been under a major attack.

In 2015, I told you about a violent downward opening (1050 USD per ounce) and then confirmed the increase to come when the price was still at 1300 (https://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/cest-parti-goldy-cest-reparti-goldy/)

What happened this morning very strongly looks like a “cleaning” of stop losses and “weak hands”.

Golden Flash Crash

Dès l’ouverture du marché des matières premières, l’or a subi une attaque d’ampleur.

En 2015, je vous avais parlé d’une ouverture violente à la baisse (1050 USD l’once) et ensuite confirmé la hausse à venir lorsque le cours était encore à 1300 (https://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/cest-parti-goldy-cest-reparti-goldy/)

Ce qui s’est passé ce matin ressemble très fortement à un “nettoyage” des stop losses et “mains faibles”.
