The Good Morning Report – 14th December

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. FED kept interest rates on HOLD and indicated rate cuts are coming next year with more on the way in 2025. DOW hit a record high on the news. 

2. Crazy day of trading in Sigma (SIG) which is the company Chemist Warehouse is using to backdoor list on the ASX.

3. Turkey imported 6 million ounces of SILVER last month - it's largest ever purchase. Good on them - drain of metal from the WEST to the EAST continues.

4. URANIUM price continues to rise - just hit US$85/lb - still in a very nice up trend.

5. New Argentinian President Javier Milei just devalued the Argentine Peso by 54% Vs USD....Despite all his pledges to the people of Argentina - he is a US puppet. The guy campaigned on shutting down its central bank yet he hired a former JP Morgan banker to run it, he called NET ZERO and climate change a SCAM but quickly resigned the Paris Accord. And has already hosted Zelensky, so it looks like Argentina is set to become a fresh money laundering hub for the elites....I've now concluded that Javier Milei is your typical lying piece of crap, corrupt politician - he actually had me going for a while!

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 up 22 points to 7257

Sigma Healthcare (SIG) shares initially surged a whopping 76% on the opening to $1.35 before getting thumped back to 99c, with the stock finally closing at $1.04...Traders were trying to make an easy buck by  front running index tracking funds and other institutions that will have to buy SIG once the mega deal with Chemist Warehouse (CW) gets done - but they got absolutely smoked.....At above $1.00 we are probably looking at the combined SIG/CW to be trading on a PE of about 20 times. There is also the risk that the regulator doesn't approve the deal or holds it up.

Random Observation

This is a meeting of some of the most corrupt war mongers on earth.....

Zelensky posted this picture on X. He is with leaders from such firms as Boeing, Lockhead Martin & General Dynamics who BUY congressmen to ensure America is always at war or funding them. It's a huge money game - they get stinking rich on the misery of millions....It really is a CLOWN WORLD - I guess it always has been, but it is just in your face now. They have no shame.

And look...just in: Yanks want our boys to start fighting the Iranian backed Houthi rebels who have been targeting WESTERN OIL tankers. Unfortunately both Dutton and Albo are war mongers as well.


The Day Ahead

  • Our SPI is up 67 points
  • Bitcoin up 3.9% to $42,789

Asian Market Update

LITHIUM Futures are staging a violent surge back up. Volumes would indicate that AUTOS are restocking.

Futures markets in CHINA are all based around physical delivery while the COMEX/LME are giant bankster paper SCAM markets where NAKED SHORT SELLING is at levels that DEFY IMAGINATION*!


Global Market Update

US Market

DOW up 512 points to 37,090

The DOW hit a fresh record HIGH after the FEDERAL RESERVE penciled in a stack of rate cuts for next year. They have basically proclaimed that INFLATION is now over.....Sure prices may be coming down for expensive luxuries that you don't need, but everything else has transitioned to permanently higher levels.

European Markets

Germans down 0.15%, Brits FLAT and Frenchies dipped 0.16%

European markets were already SHUT by the time the FEDERAL RESERVE released its decision on interest rates and associated commentary.

I've been receiving Tracy and Adrian's Good Morning Report for about 5 years now. Apart from it being my fav email to read each morning, it's given me good knowledge and tips leading to great investments. This proof in their expertise lead me to put my super with them 3 years ago and I'm pleased I did. Their easy going attitude and values align with me and they are a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Super Equity!

Tracy & Adrian's knowledge/experience with financial markets, greater global & domestic political/economic impacts & individual companies/stocks is not just unique & refreshing, but also gives great peace of mind. Having a team this capable taking care of your hard earned to help avoid knowable negative impacts, and/or take advantage of opportunities well ahead of time is like nothing I've experienced before. Could not recommend highly enough. Subscribe to Adrian's newsletter too if you want a no B.S. commentary that is unlike the sanitised drivel coming from mainstream financial reporting.

I highly recommend Super Equity to anyone needing assistance or guidance with their Super.

A huge thanks To Tracy And Adrian from Super Equity for sharing their knowledge on the recent Introduction To The Stock market Course I attended. The course was fabulous and gave a great insight on how the world operates from Share Markets, to Economic Cycles, World Currencies and great tips on how to look for opportunities on how and where to invest based on local news and world events along with overseas markets and indicators. Also thanks again Adrian for the Silver coin for 1st prize as part of the demo share market game we played over the duration of the course. Would thoroughly recommend the Stock Market course as well Tracy and Adrian's knowledge on our own investments. Cheers Charlie

We have always highly recommended and will not hesitate to recommend Tracy and team for any and all financial guidance. Thank you Tracy and look forward to your continual support.

Tracy has been an amazing teacher. I have gone from having no idea about what my super was doing and feeling really overwhelmed by the thought of all that it involved, to now being in control and understanding. Through super equity's I have a transparent, easy to understand managed fund. Tracy has even put me into contact with advisors specialised in life insurance and income protection. I cannot thank Tracy enough for empowering me and helping me organise all my affairs. If you need someone patient an knowledgeable to organise your super and investment portfolio, Tracy is the best!!

The service and support received from Super Equity has reached and surpassed all our expectations. Having previous experience with stock brokering firms over an 11 year period has highlighted to me how superior the service and support received from Tracy Askew at Super Equity is. For myself and for my clients. Tracy's in depth fundamental and technical knowledge in all areas of the market reduces many hours of my time in the research needed to be successful and profitable for myself and my clients.
