Griz Letter #72 October 27, 2014
Earnings, an FOMC meeting and government reports covering everything from housing, inflation and consumer confidence await investors in what is sure to be a volatile week.
• Earnings have exceeded all expectations will a continuation of that propel the E-Mini and equities higher?
• Will crude oil bounce from the $80 area and hold this support?
• Gold’s failure to hold $1250 could force recent long positions to liquidate.
• Now that natural gas has broken 370, where is the bottom?
Griz Letter #71 October 20, 2014
Once again we can expect high volatility and extreme price swings in all markets covered.
• Is the slide over for the E-Mini?
• Crude briefly dipped below $80, will it revisit this level or have we found a bottom?
• If the E-Mini and equities have found a bottom what does that mean for gold prices?
• Temperatures are downright cold in many areas of the country, what will that mean for the price of Natural gas?
Griz Letter #70 October 13, 2014
By all indications we can expect the same amount of volatility this week as last in all markets covered.
• Will bank earnings scheduled for release this week save the mini from further decline?
• Has gold found a bottom because of the decline in equities?
• Will crude break $80?
• Why is Natural gas still getting a bid even as temperatures have moderated?
Griz Letter #69 October 6, 2014
Third quarter earnings reports for all Dow components will be released starting this week, couple that with the start of October and investors have many reasons to feel spooked.
• Can we expect volatility to increase in the E-Mini now that the Fed is on the cusp of completely ending the asset purchase program?
• Now that gold is below $1200, how much lower can it go?
• Crude oil is trading around the $90 level; will that be the new bottom?
Griz Letter #68 September 29, 2014
As we enter the 4th quarter, it’s time to ask how investors will position themselves for the end of the year.
• Will October follow historical patterns and prove to be a negative month for equities?
• Will gold find any support as we enter the season of increased physical demand?
• If the supply in crude oil is so great then what is keeping it supported?
• With temperatures moderating in the US, what will it mean for Natural gas demand?
Griz Letter #67 September 22, 2014
The Fed didn’t really say much, and that’s just what the equities market needed.
• Since the Fed made it clear that interest rates won’t be rising anytime soon will the E-mini continue to rally?
• Is this the week gold breaks $1200?
• With production of crude hitting 8.8 million barrels in the US, will crude break $90?
• Today is the first day of fall, where do natural gas prices go?
Griz Letter #66 September 15, 2014
There are three major events to watch this week and each could have broad influence across markets. What will the Fed do? Will Scotland vote to become independent? Will geo-political uncertainty derail equities?
• Will the Fed change its guidance or raise interest rates when they wind up their meeting on Wednesday?
• Now that crude has traded near $90 is there more room to the downside?
• Will gold hold $1200?
• Temperatures are projected to be abnormally cold in the Midwest, what will it mean for natural gas?
Griz Letter #65 September 8, 2014
Not even a poor jobs report could stem the rally in equities.
• Will the Fed be forced to re-think their exit from QE as the employment report shows only 142,000 jobs created?
• Now that a coalition is forming to combat ISIS what will that mean for the price of crude?
• Will the weak jobs number support gold?
• Where is the near term low for natural gas?
Griz Letter #64 September 2, 2014
Since we are dealing with a shortened week, I will give a brief opinion on the markets covered in the letter, along with numbers to watch. Furthermore, the daily updates will continue and I will publish a full letter Sunday.
Griz Letter #63 August 25, 2014
Last week of summer and the markets are heating up.
• Will the E-mini finally be able to break 2000?
• Can anything keep gold from falling further?
• Will crude oil hold the $93 area, or is there more room to the downside?
• What will the end of summer mean for Natural Gas?
