The View from the Montana Log-Cabin as Gold threatens to the upside earlier than expected

Gold has had another good week, closing at $1880 – up from $1831 a week ago. ShareProphets’ favourite technical analyst, Jordan Roy-Byrne of TheDailyGold.com had been targeting up to $1850 as a point of overhead resistance and it seems that the line has been crossed – seemingly quite easily.

Bitcoin crashes as China pricks the bubble – timber for the AIM crypto plays

Suddenly we dinosaurs who did not understand why a worthless piece of code, which was inherently vulnerable to substitution by other worthless but cheaper pieces of code, was so valuable don’t look quite so dumb. Bitcoin is down by 18% at sub $35,000 having been $64,870 just four weeks ago. This time it is not the prick Elon Musk to blame, the bubble today is being pricked by China.

The charlatan Elon Musk and the bitcoin bubble chapter 2

After part one of the Musk pump and dump and then volte-face on bitcoin, the great fraudster faced the problem that Tesla (TSLA) was still sitting on around half of the $1.5 billion of bitcoin it had bought to great fanfare in February. But this bitcoin is dirty and environmentally tainted said the great green auto-maker – what to do with it?

Crypto cheerleader, the Tesla Charlatan, Elon Musk says now boycotting bitcoin citing new found green concerns

Lying on an industrial scale does not seem to matter anymore but it does – Tesla video

We have seen this sort of time in history before but it is rare. Elon Musk has just filed with the SEC to change his job title to “Techno-king Tesla”. His FD is now “Master of Coin”. These guys are smoking their own bullshit. And bullshit it is because Musk is an industrial scale liar but, for now, the faithful do not care.

Hello, Share Diggers. People like us who invest in shares are a fortunate minority. It’s likely that most folks reading this will have done well out of our pastime year by year.

Bidstack : Broker Stifel is ‘avin’ a Turkish with one of the crappiest notes in history

The key phrase in today’s research report on Bidstack (BIDS) from broker Stifel is “Stifel does and seeks to do business with companies covered in its research reports. As a result, investors should be aware that the firm may have a conflict of interest that could affect the objectivity of this report. Investors should consider this report as only a single factor in making their investment decision.” Put another way, Bidstack runs out of cash in a few weeks, needs to get a bailout placing away with Stifel which will earn 5% commission on that. The report is truly dire.

Updated thoughts on Tesla - stay short

The recent market turmoil has seen some decent gains for those who have been predominantly bearish for a while in the face of an unprecedented bull market. Buying the dips, a wildly successful strategy for the last ten years, suddenly doesn’t feel so clever. My own view as to whether this time might be different was to look at the world’s favourite stock Apple (NASDAQ - AAPL) and see if it would lose its trillion-dollar market cap and then some. That to me would be a signal that the selloff has legs. That has now happened, and I believe that the long overdue reality check has started and is by no means over.

Update on Tesla - still a Short

Two months ago at the UK Investor Show, I tipped Tesla (US - TSLA) as my top short for 2018 at $300. The shares are now 11% higher than that having touched $370 in the interim, so my timing has not been great and for that I apologise. Nevertheless, I still believe that, despite it being a crowded trade, and despite the fact that Elon Musk still enjoys unquestioning support from his cult followers, the company faces existential threats which could overwhelm it in short order and it is therefore the right thing to maintain a short position.

Catalysts at Tesla and Telit - keep selling!

In these benign markets, the word “catalyst” is heard frequently among bears. They may agree that they have found a real turkey, but fret about what specific event will engender a sudden loss of confidence and resultant share price fall. I suggested recently that a cash crunch is the most reliable catalyst for a correction, but it’s not that straightforward as demonstrated by two of my favourite shorts - Tesla (NASDAQ - TSLA) and Telit (TCM), both of which have traded sideways for a while.

Whilst a number of big investors see warning signs ahead for markets but are holding their positions, Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris is taking action: He’s put half of his $5.7 billion net worth into gold. He said in an interview last Monday that he believes gold prices will rally further, reaching $1,800 per ounce from just above $1,300 now, while “overvalued” stock markets crash. “In the end you have China and they will not stop consuming. And people also tend to go to gold during crises and we are full of crises right now,” Sawiris said at his office in Cairo overlooking the Nile. “Look at the Middle East and the rest of the world and Mr. Trump doesn’t help.”
