Is the Fed engineering a slow-motion train wreck?

by Ted Dixon

Last month, we suggested the gold market faced one of two scenarios. The first was the case where the Fed came to the conclusion this month that it would have to stop tightening. The second was the scarier situation where the Fed continued to press ahead with its tightening mantra until something broke, such as the stock market.

Based on recent comments by FOMC chairman Jerome Powell, the Fed seems to be relying on the market to tell it when to stop tightening. If this is indeed the case, the central bank should probably put the brakes on hiking rates right now, at least if one of the markets they are watching is the implied inflation rate in Treasury yields.

Trying to build a base for the broad market and pot stocks

by Ted Dixon

Although one week does not make a trend, given recent market carnage, the bulls can be forgiven if they point to some positive developments in the Canadian market last week. Nicholas Winton who writes a weekly technical outlook for the INK Canadian Insider Index noted in his Monday write up that the index (-0.8%) outperformed US markets last week, including the S&P 500 (-4.6%). We would add that the Index also outperformed the large-cap S&P/TSX 60 Index (-2.8%). Both developments are notable. In 2008, stocks outside the United States started to stabilize first. Meanwhile, as we explained in our November 19th report (Are we close to turning the corner?), we will have more confidence that the global selling tide is over once the INK CIN Index starts to outperform large-caps which are seen as a relative area of safety during growth scares.
