Avi Gilburt: The market fleeced you again - and, you probably do not even realize it

(Kitco commentary) - Before we move into a review of the last few months of market action to learn what most investors did wrong, I think it is important to begin this missive by reposting something written by Robert Prechter in The Socionomic Theory of Finance

Sentiment speaks: $2,428 target for gold

(Kitco commentary) - I have now been writing public articles for over 11 years on Seeking Alpha. And, through the years, I have covered many topics publicly, including the S&P 500, oil, the US Dollar, bonds, emerging markets, and many others.

Sentiment speaks: have you learned your lesson from the market yet?

(Kitco commentary) - Some people never learn. And, when it comes to the market, I would venture to say that most people never learn.

Sentiment speaks: Have we begun a 20-year bear market already?

(Kitco commentary) - Every week that I publish an article on the stock market, I attempt to show you some very glaring issues as to how the market presented to you by analysts and news reporters alike.

Sentiment speaks: are we ready to rally to 3900+SPX?

(Kitco commentary) - This now brings me to all the posts I hear about how the dollar rise is causing the market to drop. Yet, are we to ignore that the dollar has been in a long term uptrend alongside the S&P500 since 2008/09 when both bottomed?

Sentiment speaks: why would the market rally after the CPI report?

(Kitco commentary) - On October 11, just two days before the CPI number was announced, Bloomberg ran an article entitled, "JPMorgan Says Too-Hot CPI Would Put Stocks at Risk of 5% Tumble." And, they were not the only one.

Is your bank safe? - there will be no more bank 'bailouts'

(Kitco commentary) - When things are going well, no one is really concerned with how safe is their particular bank. But when we move into a financial crisis, some then become concerned, but most still go through their lives oblivious to their banking issues.

Sentiment speaks: The S&P 500 is setting up for a 500+ point move

(Kitco commentary) - I know the title of the article sounds outlandish, but we are now in a region wherein the market is going to decide its next 500+ point move. So, let me take you through my process as to how I arrive at this perspective.

Sentiment speaks: the most important news you likely missed last week

(Kitco commentary) - When I read most articles written in the financial media, they all seem to have a common thread running through them: They all tell you what has happened in the past and they try to come up with reasons as to why it happened.

Sentiment Speaks: This Is Impossible

(Kitco commentary) - Those that have read me for many years know my position regarding trading the news. I believe the news can be a catalyst for a move in the market, but the substance of the news is not determinative of market direction for such move.
