Biderman on FOX Business: Why economy will slow while stocks grow and why he’s bearish on oil due to heavy ETF inflows


The Fed Will Not Be Raising Rates Anytime Soon. US & Global Economies Entering Recession. But Stock & Bond Prices Should Keep Rising


The Fed will not be able to raise interest rates this year. Why? Sustainable economic growth has not and is not occurring. While most economists are predicting a sustainably growing US economy that will lead the rest of the world out of stagnation, outside of more rapid employment growth there is no evidence that is happening.

TrimTabs’ Charles Biderman went on CNBC with Rick Santelli to talk about the affect of zero interest rates around the world creating a global recession.

Dear Friends and Those Who Have Been Following Me for Years…


Yes, I am asking for a tax-deductible donation. Please do not stop reading!!!
Last year, I founded Biderman’s Practices of Success, or B-POS, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization whose current mission is to create an online course that transforms transition-aged vulnerable former foster youth. Our approach is based upon ontological training (the science of being present to life), something extremely effective and not normally available to foster youth. The main premise is success in life is being able to do whatever it takes to be fully present and totally engaged in the areas of life important to us. READ MORE

Biderman Discusses Major Disconnect Between Stock Market and Economy on CNBC


Below: Santelli and Harris discuss Biderman’s earlier comments.

Chris Hamilton: Is the Printing of the Japanese Yen the Poison Pill for Gold??? The More Yen Japan Prints, the Lower the Price of Gold…Until???


Yen weakness is relative dollar strength is gold weakness…or said otherwise in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. If the correlation hasn’t become obvious by now…the carry trade around the Yen and the BOJ’s plan to depreciate or bust seems to have rather outsized impacts across the market spectrum. My interest is the relationship of gold and the Yen. Seems the weakening of the Yen is driving the price of gold…down. Of course the Yen’s weakness is conversely the dollar’s relative strength…but from ’09 and particularly since Japan’s December 2012 turn to “Abenomics”, Gold and the Yen have moved tick for tick. The more Yen Japan prints, the farther the price of gold falls…ahhhh the irony that gold, the finite measuring stick of infinite currencies, seems now only to be measuring the depths TPTB will go to hide currencies relative worth!

Chris Hamilton: 10,000 Tons of Gold Bought? – The math says China could have easily done it!


Since August ’11 to August of ’14, China has decreased its holdings of US Treasury debt by $9 Billion (according to the most recent TIC data)…while continuing to run record trade surpluses with the US. This means China will have (by year end 2014) taken in $951 Billion in shiny, new, digital dollars since 2011 and simultaneously sold or rolled off $9 Billion in US Treasury holdings…so China will have had to find a home for $960 Billion new dollars.
