Last Friday was one of those days that totally confounded some investors.
Take the fundamental economic news. It was pretty solid. The U.S. economy created 192,000 jobs in March, while February’s reading was revised upward, to 197,000. Unemployment held at 6.7 percent, while the average workweek ticked up by 0.2 hours.
As a matter of fact, private employment has now

I just saw a report speculating that gold’s performance this year would be “data dependent,” specifically alluding to quantitative easing and the pace of tapering.
Data is always important, but I’m afraid that narrow view is wrong on two counts.
First of all, those who are focused on whether the Fed tapers more or less for the rest of this

The market hasn’t pulled back very much.
But for selective investors, it’s a nice, little gift — opening up an opportunity to get BOTH quality AND good prices. And if it pulls back further, all the better.
Meanwhile, despite the decline in the markets last week — and despite any further declines — the Weiss Ratings are still very bullish,

Piloting an airplane is said to be composed of 99 percent boredom and 1 percent sheer terror. Similarly, life on Wall Street is often 90 percent tedium and 10 percent pure adrenaline and excitement. Currently, though, we are in the midst of a quiet period where the Federal Reserve is in the cockpit and in complete control.
Sure, technology stocks

It’s time for investors to dream big again. As big as the ocean, the moon and the stars. As vast and wide as your imagination will go, and then find another gear and take it up a notch.
Don’t let temporary pauses or pull-backs fool you:  A new tech stock boom is in progress now that will dwarf those that

Money and Markets Economic and Company Calendar April 7-11
Earnings reports from the past quarter will start to trickle in this week, with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. leading the way for large cap financial services companies.
It’ll be a fairly quiet week for economic reports, but keep an ear out for what FOMC members speaking at…

As I pen this column, gold and silver continue to build a base. That base will strengthen dramatically as long as gold holds the $1,278 level on a weekly closing basis, and silver holds its June 2013 low at $18.18, also on a weekly closing basis.
Meanwhile, the euro appears ready to crack, and deflation still has the upper hand

Before you make any new investment, you should always ask a lot of probing, doubting-Thomas questions. And that’s exactly what I’ve done in recent days with tech stock guru Jon Markman.

Because I think the dollar is doomed as the world’s reserve currency … because I believe gold will one day — not too far off — trade at well over $5,000 an ounce …
And because I think the U.S. economy will eventually slip to number two in the world, behind China …
Most people think I’m a doomsayer on

There’s a lot of claptrap that comes out of the mouths of Wall Street strategists. Ditto for Washington bureaucrats and two-handed economists.
But money talks — and that’s why I find it so important to follow what the Treasury “yield curve” is doing. I started talking about this incredibly important concept last week. Now I want to flesh it out
