Insights: Central bank 2% inflation targeting is accelerating climate change

In this week's Insights, we provide a quick guide to Real Vision's fantastic interview series with the founder of ARK Investment Management, Cathie Wood. In addition, on the topic of climate change, it is time to hold central banks accountable for their role in speeding up global warming. It is not all about the oil patch.

Cathie Wood on the fate that awaits many S&P 500 stocks

Hi, everyone. At the risk of repeating myself from INK Chat, I just want to make sure that everyone is aware of a fantastic interview series on INK Ultra Money this week. Real Vision's Kiril Sokoloff sits down with Cathie Wood, the CEO of ARK Investments.

Cathie Wood this week on INK Ultra Money

Real Vision is releasing one segment each day this week. I watched the first one on Sunday night, and it is worth all 32 minutes. She even provides us with her price target on Tesla (spoiler: it is a lot higher).

Insights: Buying the dip in inflation stocks

In this week's Insights, we assess what our signals on the INK platform are flashing about the prospects for inflation-oriented stocks.

Energy stocks on sale

Insights: A warning sign from precious metals

Read our latest Insights for the key level we are watching on the Gold/Silver Ratio to tell us whether the COVID-19, tapering talk, rising oil prices and deflationary forces are about to overwhelm the bull market in inflation-oriented stocks.

Insights: Intellabridge doubles and the inflation trade gets some help from the consumer

The battle between the inflation bulls and bears is in full swing on INK Ultra Money. However, the US consumer may be tipping the scales in favour of the inflation trade.

Intellabridge rallies as KASH beta rolls out

Meanwhile, crypto-equity Intellabridge which we last featured here on May 30th is on a roll, but a question remains.

Insights: Litecoin, Ottawa's Mastercard and is Binance BC bound?

We also wonder if Binance may consider BC as a place to register. Click here to read.

Insights update

Insights is a bit later than usual this week as we are working on a special announcement.

Insights: Running on a full tank of crude

The INK Canadian Insider Index which tracks mid-cap-oriented stocks has been a top performer so far this year. Oil patch stocks have been driving the index higher. Can the good times continue?

Meanwhile, our insider of the week is a true believer. All this and more in the latest free Insights newsletter.

Insights: Dot plots will not crush the oil price

All of a sudden it has become a scary time for investors as the Fed is musing about tightening monetary policy. However, it is going to take more than dot plots to cool off the oil price.

The Fed cannot stand by the sidelines if it wants to cool inflation

Insights: Everybody is winning

Last week, we suggested that Energy was winning the performance race, but gold was catching up. However, in an absolute sense, this week we conclude that thanks to the Fed's relentless money printing, just about every asset wins as the US dollar gets debased.
