Gold Is Up Lately. Why Does It Feel So Disappointing?

Since the start of December, gold has outperformed stocks by a nice margin. So why does this feel like such a let-down? Because the stars were aligned for a much bigger move. The structure of the late 2018 futures market had speculators historically short – which normally portends a big price increase. January is also the seasonally best time for gold and silver, since that’s when Asians stock up on jewelry to give at Spring weddings. Meanwhile, gold and silver mining stocks had had a...

Sears confirms ESL selected as winning bidder in bankruptcy auction

Sears Holdings announced that ESL Investments was selected as the winning bidder in the company's auction. Subject to bankruptcy court approval, ESL will acquire substantially all of the company's assets, including the "Go Forward Stores" on a going-concern basis for approximately $5.2B, Sears said in a statement.

Americans' Economic Hope Has Collapsed

Which came first, the confidence or the stock market rally? One thing is for sure, the crash in stocks in December has crushed the hope of Americans that their economic future is going to be better under President Trump. Overall confidence dipped to 58.1 - a 4-month low, but, U.S. consumers this month were the most downbeat on the economy since November 2016, a third straight drop after expectations reached a 16-year high just three months earlier, as the partial government shutdown wears on toward a fourth week...

"This Shocked Us": One Bank Spots A "Career-Ending" Divergence In The Market

While many traders saw the mid-December market meltdown as a "catharsis" of sorts, a long overdue and much-needed "mean reversion" process, one which hit hard stocks that were the biggest winners of 2018 and slammed "momentum" names, those which had enjoyed the biggest pile up of "smart money", while names that had seen little institutional institutional interest (and were heavily shorted) outperformed, arguably bringing some semblance of normalcy to a gaping valuation dispersion, one month later something unexpected has emerged. According...

WTI Dips After Huge Gasoline Build, Surge In US Production

WTI has dropped, popped, dumped, and jumped since last night's surprisingly small crude draw and major product builds from API, but remains around the $52 level ahead of DOE data this morning. “The Chinese are throwing everything they can" at their economy, said John Kilduff, founding partner at hedge fund Again Capital LLC. “That’s the big key to oil markets, especially when you have OPEC and Russia starting to rein in production." Saudi Arabia’s energy minister said he was sure inventories will start to “return to normal averages and this will increase confidence” in...

Mystery Trader Causes Stir With Giant Bet: Will Lose $558 Million If Market Crashes

A mystery trader made a massive bullish bet on the S&P 500 on Monday, putting at risk hundreds of millions of dollars of capital. The bet is reminiscent of, and has drawn comparisons to, Warren Buffett’s giant bet on global stocks more than 10 years ago. On Monday, a trader sold 19,000 S&P 500 put options that would obligate him or her to buy the index at 2100 on expiration in December 2020, according to Reuters. The index would need to drop no more than 22% from Monday’s closing level of 2582 and the bettor stands to rake in $175 million in premiums...

PG&E Stock Hits Record Low, Misses Interest Payment As Bankruptcy Nears

PG&E bonds are crashing and its stock just hit a new record low after the company opted not to make an interest payment today on its $800m of 5.4% bonds due Jan. 15, 2040, triggering a 30-day grace period on the note, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. PG&E is now trading below of the lows of the last bankruptcy (before its bailout). If PG&E goes bankrupt as expected, it will be the first investment-grade name to default without entering the U.S. high-yield market since MF Global in 2011, Bank of America strategists led by Hans Mikkelsen said in a note...
