According to Ned gold will stay dormant, but the one to watch is silver. It's been holding very steady for quite some time, just getting ready to pop. Ned is also extremely bullish on the Ag commodities. China is switching to ethanol blended gasoline to help with its air quality disaster. That means corn has nowhere to go but up. The other Ags are soaring as well. Ned believes the rumors of a China-US trade war are greatly exaggerated.

David's new book has just been released. As he explains it there are two conflicting ideas in the world. The American Ideal which says you judge people by their merit and the quality of their character. It's all about the individual. And there's the Marxist Ideal which is all about identity politics and judging people by race, etc. The battle is being waged and the outcome is still in doubt. Look at Al Franken and so many others. It's totalitarianism at its worst. A very timely book that looks at America's second civil war.

John adeptly answers FSN Member Jessy's question wondering if this time really is different. As Mark Twain said, "History doesn't repeat, but it does rhyme." Back in the Great Depression we were still on a gold standard, even though private holdings were outlawed. This put a lid on potential spending, although it wasn't perfect. Now, with the dollar being backed by nothing but a promise from the government, the world's governments can't print us into oblivion, which they are hell bent on doing now.

The recent dramatic market volatility  continued throughout April, as the yield on the 10-year treasury rate topped 3 percent for the first time since 2014. Fears of rising interest rates and inflation helped drive the volatility, along with uncertainty about how aggressive the Federal Reserve might be in its efforts to “normalize” monetary policy under new chairman, Jerome Powell. The Fed plays such a key role in determining how all this uncertainty and instability will play out in the months ahead.

Wall Street knows very well that Powell’s job is a tricky one. In a sense, he’s charged with landing an experimental airplane that was launched nine years ago in response to the Financial Crisis. That’s when the Fed, under then-chairman Ben Bernanke, embarked on a historically unprecedented effort to jumpstart the economy with artificial stimulus, a.k.a. quantitative easing.
