Out of the ashes of the Fed: commodities melt-up underway

Perhaps it was no surprise with a pivotal US Federal Reserve interest rate decision pending, but hard assets were taken down 'hard' last week. Copper, gold, silver, platinum and oil crumpled heavily, and reached oversold conditions not seen in months, even years. However, experience suggests whenever multiple commodities hit the ground hard in unison, it is really an opportunity cloaked in panic. When I studied my own forecasts and saw they lined up well with this panic bottom idea, I began to focus on some resource stocks with star power.

Sound bites: Three missiles too far?

While investors are once again fixating on the upcoming March 15th Fed meeting, they should also be paying attention to a high level meeting likely taking place in Tokyo on the same day. Next Wednesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to start his northern Asian tour in Japan. Following his stop in Japan, over the following days he is expected to head to South Korea and China, in that order. A key topic will be North Korea which fired at least four missiles towards Japan earlier this week. Read more » about Sound bites: Three missiles too far?

Oversold INK Canadian Insider Index: Ready to bounce back?

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index.

Sound bites: Insiders run to resources as geo-tensions rise

On Tuesday, the world will get the first serious insight into the Trump administration's priorities when the president addresses a joint session of congress. We got a hint of what may be in that speech when the New York Times wrote Sunday that the president will be asking for a major jump in defence spending. That news comes on the heels of further reports on the weekend from Reuters that China is investing heavily in naval capabilities to beef up its territorial claims in the South China and East China seas.

INK Canadian Insider Index sees a technical sell signal after hitting a new intra-day high

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index rose to a brand new intraday high of 1217.19 but simply could not break through that 1215-1218 wall of resistance which has capped it on its last 5 attempts. The Index then suffered a 27.74 point or 2.3% reset as it fell to 1181.88, which included a 1.37% pasting on Friday.

BNN Notes: Key Market Trends & The Insiders

Before appearing on BNN's Business Day AM with Amber Kanwar and Jon Erlichman today, we wrote up a note for the show covering some key trends in the market and how insiders are positioning themselves. The background note was fairly extensive and we couldn't possibly cover it all in 7 minutes on television. But, I thought it would be worth sending the material to our readers because it covers a lot of ground, focusing on both institutional and speculative situations in the market.

The replay of the interview is now on the BNN website. If you missed the interview, you can watch it here: http://www.bnn.ca/video/insider-trading-trends-in-canadian-heavyweights~... Read more » about BNN Notes: Key Market Trends & The Insiders

INK Canadian Insider Index: set to 'wow' from a bullish double bottom?

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Early last week, the Index continued to trade in a tight range and then on Wednesday dipped to 1180 or 8 points short of its 50-day moving average (1172) before closing strongly near the day's highs. By doing so, the Index is carving out a double bottom pattern and so far this has been confirmed, for the Index went on to gap up and rise 13 points or over 1% over the last 2 days to close at 1200.27 for 7 point gain on the week. The Index's latest chart action is starting to look very promising indeed. Read more » about INK Canadian Insider Index: set to 'wow' from a bullish double bottom?
