April 28th – Treasuries and USD could rally while the S&P may fade; Socialism comes in many flavors, but we always lose; The vast deception in the dumbed-down alt-media

I have uploaded a new market update podcast for April 28, 2018. Click here to go to the show archives page to listen or you can listen on the link below.  I have included links to relevant articles and media on the Show Archives page.  The latest show is on the top of the page.

-Historic high short spec position in the 10-year UST futures. I think we may see a short-covering rally. If this happens the USD will continue to follow.
-Spec longs stretched in the S&P e-minis. Small spec. longs bigger than large spec longs. Small spec. longs at historic highs. Something has to give and the small speculator is NEVER correct in the long run.
-If the dollar continues its oversold rally gold may fade, but 1,300 looks firm. Silver and platinum need to catch up.
-Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have gotten into the rental market in a big way.  Corporate socialism at its best (worst). Small landlords being squeezed out as the landlords of Carleton Sheets’s days are becoming a dying breed.
-Socialism drives costs and debt up. It provides a permanent lift to asset prices. The rich benefit much more than the intended recipient of socialism.
-Amazon loses billions in retail, yet makes billions in net income. How come? Trump won’t stop it.
-A further analysis of how the alt-media has been duped to believe deep-state propaganda. Russia has taken over the legacy patriot media with one logic fallacy after another.
