    Gold is priced is dollars so if the dollar gets stronger and goes up versus the basket of other main currencies, you can’t buy so much gold per dollar. So the gold price goes down.
    Amazing watching things play out. DB you’ve been a marvel and it’s so interesting to watch. 
    Re Centrica I don’t think it’s a short term play. And I do think more and more electrification is on the way...
    DYOR etc but it really boils down to if you’re looking to flip it short term or hold for a longer term. I’m with DB on the cycle I am seeing things change everywhere.

    Well I reckon you’re on the money regarding the facts but it seems that sentiment is going to guide things too.
    Heard a lad on Friday on  BBC radio 4  say he thought Brexit/Populism etc were a reflection that the younger generation are waking up to the fact they are going to have a worse life overall than their parents generation. More debt, no house just renting off Boomers and worse health/earlier deaths.
    ...gradually the Boomers will be screwed as nobody wants to buy their stuff.

    Looking into how to be sure if it’s a turn...These candlesticks seem to really help indicate turns and interesting here how Clive Maund buys and sells.

    Really enjoying reading the banter on the twitter threads from David Hunter. He called bear in 2014 and the turn at the low after. He called the low in December and says pms and the SPX will rally from here for the first half of this year. Then a likely bust. 
    Sounds remarkably like Martin Armstrong who says Gold and the DOW will rise together this year in a flight from govt bonds in what he called The Great Alignment. 
    Paging Viceroy... what say you

    Thank You Sir.

    Some lad once predicted this. 
    Ahem... from Page 1.
    …"Once this does hit the central banks will be slow to react with the right response as they themselves will be shocked at the speed and scale.They will panic and print direct into the economy by passing money/debt to governments at 0.1% or zero coupons.."

    Not sure any more. Low wage workers’ taxes going to pay for the failed bankers mistakes doesn’t feel like winners winning and losers losing. 
    Feels like well-connected failures winning I think.

    Exactly.
    Capitalism would have allowed banks to fail in the GFC instead of what happened with QE.

    But they were bailed out by the taxpayer. Us.
    ...so they did fail and the government protected them from failure.
    Isn’t capitalism supposed to let failures fail so only winners win?
