At least, that’s according to former hedge fund manager and Goldman Sachs alumnus Raoul Pal.

Stock Market Investing: Watch the False Confidence

By Friday, July 17, 2015
Stock Market Investing False ConfidenceWatching the stock market rise for the fourth straight day on Tuesday, I’m left wondering about the false confidence that appears to be on the surface. My view is that the current state of stock market investing should continue to be guarded with caution and selling into strength. Greece and its lenders appear to have a deal in place; it’s true. But the Greek parliament still needs to approve it. .

Stock Market Right Now: 3 Variables That Could Drive It Lower

By Monday, July 13, 2015
Stock Market DownInvestors were jumping into stock buying on Thursday morning. But while it may be an encouraging sign for the stock market, my advice is not to be fooled by this dead cat bounce. We will likely see oversold buying after bouts of deep selling (as we have been witnessing). I doubt there are sustainable market gains around the corner; unless the global situation changes and corporate America begins to finally .

(Source: Greeks Spend in Droves, Afraid of Losing Savings to a Bailout, July 9, 2015.) Greek banks have been shut down since June 29th, and are expected to remain closed until Friday. The government-imposed capital control of .

Gold Price Manipulation: More Evident Now Than Ever Before?

By Thursday, July 9, 2015
Gold Price ManipulationThere’s increasing noise that questions whether gold prices are being manipulated. Given the current events in the eurozone especially, along with what’s happening elsewhere in the global economy, gold prices aren’t moving higher. In fact, they are going down. The complete opposite of what conventional wisdom says; the precious metal rises when uncertainty increases. For instance, the future of the eurozone is doubtful, to say the least. Will the common .

Trailing 12-month EPS for Dow Jones companies (Most Recent Quarter) $1014.15
Trailing 12-month Price/earnings multiple (Most Recent Quarter)

17.44

Dow Jones Industrial Average Dividend Yield 2.71%
10-year U.S. Treasury Yield 2.14%

Immediate term outlook:
The bear market rally in stocks that started in March 2009, extended because of unprecedented central bank money printing, is coming to an end. Gold bullion is up $1,000 an ounce since we first recommended it in 2002 and we are still bullish on the physical metal.

Short-to-medium term outlook:
World economies are entering their slowest growth period since 2009. The Chinese economy grew last year at its slowest pace in 24 years. Japan is in recession. The eurozone is in depression. With almost half the S&P 500 companies deriving revenue outside the U.S., slower world economic growth will negatively impact revenue and earnings growth of American companies. Domestically, America’s gross domestic product grew by only a meager 2.3% in the second quarter, which will negatively impact an already overpriced equity market.
