I thought I'd start a thread were we could collect graphs that we see as important.

Below is one that was first posted on James Turk's FGMR website.

I think this is a must read article:
http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article16336.html

Despite this, copper is now way overextended technically and fundamentally. And the driving force behind its hyper-optimistic sentiment today, the levitating S&P 500 stock index (SPX), is growing tired and brittle. Given copper’s incredibly-strong correlation with the SPX since the stock markets’ March bottom, any material stock-market weakness will almost certainly spark a massive wave of copper selling.


With a must see graph:

Copper has become the SPX’s Siamese twin! Since stocks’ despair lows in March, the technical chart patterns of copper and the SPX are almost interchangeable. If I had mislabeled the blue copper line and red SPX line above, not many traders would catch the error with a casual glance. For the most part, copper has been rallying when the SPX is strong and retreating when the SPX is weak.

This relationship extends well beyond the visual to the statistical. Since the SPX bottomed on March 9th, the daily copper close has had a correlation r-square of 94.1% with the SPX. This means 94% of copper’s daily price action is statistically explainable by the SPX’s own! This is all the more remarkable considering I’m using copper’s global benchmark prices from the London Metal Exchange here.

Why would worldwide copper prices follow American stock markets with such precision? One reason only. The mighty advance in US equities has set the tone for universal sentiment. Traders nearly everywhere, trading nearly everything, are seeing the continuing SPX rally and assuming it means underlying economic conditions are improving rapidly. So they are bidding up nearly everything else with it.

That's a pretty horrific divergence of revenues and spending.

At least in the 2002 recession revenues started higher than spending. Now looks like the very worst in history.

I guess the UK is similar.

Looks to me like the QE will have to continue in the US and UK whatever they say about stopping it. I wonder when they will be forced to announce their extension of the program.

As James Turk has been saying for ages, it doesn't really matter what gold does in the short term as it maintains buying power when compared to currency which loses it rapidly. Accumulate gold on any pullback.

During this financial crisis it is much more important to maintain you buying power, to be able to buy when other credit derived assets have depreciated and the crisis is over, than to increase your wealth.

Is this really true? Where did it come from? and when was it published? I am staggered if it true. We are truly FCUK'd. :cry:

Not sure where it came from but saw it in DrBubbs Y shaped thread.

It would make sense to me as we have large public and private debt. Japan has larger public debt, but privately they are a nation of savers.

UK is toast, well known in most places in europe.

I saw this histogram in an article the other day and I was a bit dubious. I don't remember exactly where but maybe it was on marketoracle.
