BLOWOUT EMPLOYMENT DATA, AMERICAN SMART MONEY WINS THE GOLD BATTLE AGAINST CHINESE

This morning the Department of Labor reported blowout jobs data.  Non-farm Private Payrolls rose 295K vs. 230K consensus.

The end of the Lunar year holiday in China heralded a new battle over gold.  We have been telling you about the running battle between Chinese aggressively buying gold and running prices up and then American Smart Money slamming gold by aggressively selling on the strength.  We wrote, “Only time will tell who wins the battle.”  This morning the verdict is in.  American Smart Money won the battle.  Gold has decisively not only broken the support at $1200, it has also broken the strong support zone of $1182 – $1184.

It is important to note that our very long-term rating on gold is positive.  Our very, very short-term rating on gold has been negative.

Yesterday, we shared our analysis with you that the real reason behind oil run up was short squeeze and our models predicted that the short squeeze would not last.  Now this has come true.  As of this writing oil has retraced 100% of the gains from the recent rally.

Interest rates are rising.

Our very, very short-term early stock market indicator is mild negative, but it can easily turn into a strong positive.

Gold futures are at $1181, silver futures are at $15.87, and oil futures are $50.25.

ECB BOND BUYING TO START ON MARCH 9, CHINA CUTS GROWTH FORECAST TO 15 YEAR LOW

ECB Chief, Mario Draghi, has announced that bond buying program will start in Europe on March 9th.  There is a fair amount of optimism in European markets over this bond buying program.

The momo crowd is aggressively buying gold on the prospect of more money printing in Europe.  However, details of this program have been well-known and this is already discounted in the gold price, it does not make any sense to buy gold because of today’s announcement.

China reduced its growth forecast to 7%, this is the lowest target in 15 years.

Initial Unemployment Claims came at 320K vs. 295K consensus; this number is very disappointing and carries a heavy weight in our models.  Interestingly interest rates are inching up on this number, they should have been inching down.

Yesterday and overnight, oil experienced a massive short squeeze.  The gains from the short squeeze are not likely to last.

Our very, very short-term early stock market indicator is neutral.

Gold futures are at $1203, silver futures are at $16.25, and oil futures are $51.62.

NASDAQ HITS 5,000 ON WAY TO 10,000

NASDAQ hit 5,000 after 15 years.  In the short to medium-term, NASDAQ is very overbought and is likely to experience a correction, even a bear market.  Such a dip will be a buying opportunity.  In five to seven years, it is more likely than not, that NASDAQ will hit 10,000.

Interest rates are inching up.
