Don’t mistake this site for a chat room

I had a number of questions and comments from my last post (see Wall Street: Where the Wild Things are) when I wrote that my trading account, while still bullish, had taken “partial profits earlier this week as part of his risk control discipline when readings became short-term overbought”. The comments ranged from “where can I find a record of where your decisions to take partial profits” (answer: you can’t) to “why did you not tell us when you made that trade?”/  >Humble Student of...

Precious Metals Update

Our previous advice Regular readers of the blog should remember that back in early July we warned that the probability of safe have assets correcting was very high. This included various bonds (especially long duration), commercial real estate, minimum volatility / high dividend paying stocks and of course the precious metals sector. There has been some serious selling in the Precious Metals market throughout the month of October, with Gold falling 4.5% so far. More speculative assets...

Where In The World Is Tiho Today?

After spending several weeks holidaying with friends throughout the beautiful Adriatic Coastline, which included traveling all the way from Pula to Dubrovnik and islands of Hvar and Brac, we found ourselves searching for some Eastern European culture in a place not regularly visited by normal tourists. It wasn’t difficult to enter the rhythm and start enjoying the old capital city of former Yugoslavia called Belgrade, so we decided to spend over 6 weeks in this multicultural centre of...

Stock Market Clam & Complacency

Let us check out US stock market breadth today. Before we start, I would like to state that the charts above are as of last Friday’s close. As always lets work with three different tools and indicators: a) Advance Decline data; b) Percentage Above Moving Averages data; and c) 52 Week New Highs & Lows data. NY Stock Exchange 10 days Advance Decline line has not been even slightly oversold since February of 2016, when the market experienced a sharp sell off due to Chinese economy...

BHP Billiton and others turn to speak directly to the public

A while ago, a friend sent me an article via WeChat, talking about the top 10 careers that would disappear in the e-era. On top of the list is “journalist,” and I tried to understand the real agenda behind my friend’s action, a tease or a gentle reminder. My attendance of BHP Billiton’s formal launch of its Prospects blog on Sept. 1 has made me realize that it could have been a gentle reminder after all. No pressure, but she nudged me to think in the long run. At the event, Arnoud Balhuizen,...

Finally, A Comprehensive Market Update!

Dear readers, I admit, I’ve been missing in action. I took a prolonged summer break and have been traveling Europe for months now. As a matter of fact, I’ve been traveling the world for 11 months now and have not yet returned back to Australia. Last newsletter, which initially did not work properly due to technical issues (but works now), showed a few places I recently visited including the beautiful Adriatic coastline. Since I haven’t properly commented on asset class performance in...

Rates Rising, US Stocks Leading, August Holidays

Dear readers, I hope this post finds all of you well. In the first week of July I commented on financial market overextension, in particular for asset classes that were and still are deemed “safe” by various market participants. These included nominal Treasuries, inflation linked bonds, corporate bonds, emerging market bonds, US commercial real estate, utilities sector and Gold. So far so good, and it seems that majority of these asset classes continue to correct even as I write...
