Chris Temple joins me today to address the new tariffs announced last night on Mexico that is throwing the new trade deal between the US, Canada, and Mexico into turmoil. Plus some comment by the Chinese that they will be retaliating to the escalating trade tensions with the US. Market are down with the USD while treasuries and gold are bouncing.
Lobo Tiggre, Founder of the Independent Speculator joins me to share his thoughts on the trade tension news regarding China possibly cutting off exports of rare earth elements to the US. We’ve seen volume upticks and some stocks moving higher but is it for real? We then wrap up the call with comments on the moves into safe haven assets.
Chris Vermuelen. Founder of The Technical Traders joins me to share his thoughts on the recent flow of money into safe haven assets. During the selloff yesterday in US markets money moved into bonds, gold, and back into the USD. We discuss just how long this run could last and which sectors Chris is the most bullish on.
With Bitcoin popping higher the question is being asked if the pop is due to safe haven buying or simply a overdue bounce. Ryan Wilday joins me to share his thoughts on the move higher and where he thinks it could go.
We start another week discussing the trade war between the US and China. Tensions are ramping up again and the markets are selling off, with US markets down over 2% across the board. Money is flowing into risk off assets such as treasuries and gold.
Chris Temple and I discuss what this all means for the markets and the economies of each country. There are a lot of comments regarding which country can outlast the other and if China is really dumping US dollars.
Brien Lundin, Editor of The Gold Newsletter joins me to address the fact that gold has been lagging the other safe haven investments. With the USD on an uptrend putting in higher highs and lows and bonds continuing higher, gold still has not broken out or established a more long term uptrend.
