Lance Lewis: Gold Miners Suggest Market Crash is Near
Tom welcomes a new guest to the show, Lance Lewis. Lance is the President of Lewis Capital and Publisher of the Daily Market Summary.
Lance outlines his early career as a technology analyst and how it taught him the business cycle. It was much easier back then to make money on the short side of the market, but that always came with risk.
He explains his computer model’s technicals, its weightings, and why gold for him is just another thing to trade. This model provides him with a series of buy or sell signals to predict future market direction. This method reduces the emotion in trades.
He suspects it will take another panic dip to trigger further stimulus and the next move higher for gold. Right now, something is not right about how gold is trading.
Lance expresses concerns about the consequences of a dollar rally when most investors are short the dollar. He says, “At some points rates will start to move up the dollar will rally, and markets will start to tumble, and then the Fed will come running.”
The fact that commodities, in general, have broken out is an indication of looming inflation. Lance questions if the Fed will be able to create and maintain gradual inflation.
Lastly, he explains how investing in mining ETF’s can reduce your downside risk compared to picking individual companies.
