The Good Morning Report – 7th December

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. Chinese government bought another 23t of GOLD in October - accumulation continues.

2. Macquarie boss says the returns need to be bigger for investors in renewables - in other words she wants us taxpayers to increase the already obscene subsidies for the grift. Nothing Macquarie Bank does is good for the environment -they basically wrote the book on greenwashing.... GREEN = SCAM. AVOID Macquarie Bank shares.

3. Indian and German stock markets continue to make fresh record highs....What a combo that is; India has a rapidly growing economy while Germany is in recession and experiencing STAGFLATION. 

4. Doesn't look like the market was happy with the complexity of Evolution's (EVN) new  copper mine acquisition. Fortunately they managed to get the capital raising done to fund the deal @ $3.80...EVN closed down 13% to $3.60.

5. Pending homes sales in the US fell to the lowest level since records have been kept. Now that's even lower than when they completely locked down the economy for the sniffles.

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 up 116 points to 7178

Economic growth for the September quarter came in at 0.2% Vs 0.5% expected. The big miss was welcomed by investors as it takes the pressure off the RBA to hike rates when the board meets in FEB next year....Kind of funny how sometimes bad news is actually good news for stocks. Overall Aussies are getting squeezed with household incomes falling to the lowest level in 8 years - it truly is a crappy economy for most, which I think will only deteriorate. For us - I remain very optimistic with our investment positioning and think we are set for a glorious run with the metals and other commodities. We're entering a once in 50 year cycle.

Random Observation

Real Estate agents would be having a tough old time....Lowest sales EVER. YIKES!!....Nothing is normal anymore.

The Day Ahead

  • Our SPI is down 20 points
  • Bitcoin up 0.86% to $44,035
  • BHP in US up 0.82%
  • Newmont down 0.14%
  • Block Inc in US up 5.58%

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • Gold up 0.5% to $2046
  • Paper Silver down 1% to $24.20
  • Platinum down 1.3% to $894
  • Copper down 1.24% to $3.73
  • Brent Crude down 3.73% to $74.32
  • Iron ore up 2.2% to $131.85

Asian Market Update

Japan up 2%, China off 0.11% and HSI up 0.83%

The Indian stock market continues to make fresh record highs as its economy and companies within it grow....Plenty of Indian stocks look expensive Vs Asian peers,  but the stronger growth outlook may actually warrant higher multiples. India's market is pretty much the inverse of Hong Kong which is in a nasty BEAR market.

On the ASX we have two listed Indian ETFs: IIND and NDIA.

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW down 70 points to 36,054

OIL prices took another hit overnight as shorts continue to pile in. The selloff happened to coincide with VLAD meeting up with MBS - Saudi Crown Prince.

What are these dudes so happy about?? Their OIL production cuts has been met with steep price declines while the US ramped up production....I think they know what is coming - the end of the PETRO DOLLAR (OIL is sold by the ARABS for USD). The game has changed and the consequences for the current world order and financial system will be profound......GOLD is set to play a central role in the transition away from the PETRO DOLLLAR. 

I'm very BULLISH on GOLD & OIL.

European Markets

Germans up 0.75%, Brits added 0.34% and Frenchies put on 0.66%

German stock market (DAX) rallied again to hit fresh all time highs and this is despite unemployment rising to 5.9% and it's economy in recession....A big wealth divide is opening up across Europe plus we are seeing mass migration as borders have been basically thrown open by the establishment. A violent era is coming for the EU - get the people fighting amongst themselves which will then result in screams for more government control and even greater intervention.

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.

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

No question is to silly, Tracy is always available for any query you have and gives us the time to explain our portfolio and investments. Receiving the daily morning reports has been helpful to understand and learn the market. 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.
