As trade drives markets now some bigger themes need to be noted – Yield Curve Inversions and Fed Policy
Chris Temple, Founder of The National Investor joins me for some comments on a looming yield curve inversion in the US and how the general Fed’s policy will play out for markets. Even with the delay of some tariffs announced this morning the yield curve and Fed policy remain the major long-term drivers that investors need to take note of.
Hour 1 – Rick Bensignor, Marc Chandler, and an update from Great Bear Resources
This week was full of news events that drove markets. The Fed started us off on Wednesday with a rate cut but not the promise of future rate cuts. Trump quickly followed with more China tariffs that turned a markets in the opposite direction.
There’s a lot of information in this weekend’s show that considers the markets and politics around the world. Even though the guests I feature this week are both generalists they both have some very interesting comments on the gold market.
I was also at the Sprott conference for most of the week. I will have a few company interviews coming out next week but in this weekends show we do get an update from Great Bear Resources.

Why do all markets in the US seems to be in slow motion?
Doc joins me for a general discussion on US markets and a couple other areas that seem to be moving in slow motion. The easy excuse is the Fed meeting tomorrow but there is an argument for this to continue even past tomorrow.
Weekend Show Preview – How gold is reacting to economic data and the USD
Unfortunately today is a bit of a slow day when it comes to interviews. A lot of my typical contacts are on route to Vancouver (or getting ready) for the Sprott conference. So I am posting this call with Doc that will be featured on this weekend’s show. We look at the gold market and how gold is holding nicely in the face of a USD that is still in an uptrend.
With yields lower/negative around the world why are US yields not there yet?
Chris Temple joins me today to focus on the bond markets around the world. As yields are lower pretty much everywhere else and in some cases negative, in the US yields are low but still a distance from these other areas. It all comes down to the central banks but something is going to need to play catch up…
With negative yields where can big money find returns?
Marc Chandler, Managing Partner at Bannockburn Global ForEx joins me to recap the major news from this week. We start with the jobs data and how this is shifting some of the expectations heading into the Fed meeting. Next are some comments on the new head of the ECB and the trend of negative yields around Europe. This all leads to a discussion on what mutual funds and large money managers are doing to find yield.
