The purpose of this board is global economic trend analysis. It will cover commodities such as oil, gold, silver, and copper, as well as currencies, interest rates, and US treasuries.
|An SI Board Since February 2004|
We will attempt to perform cross trend analysis such as but not limited to: how rising or falling interest rates will affect gold, silver, and oil; how a rate cut or hike in Europe might affect a hike or cut in the US; how a falling US$ might affect a rate cut decision in the UK, Europe, or Australia.
This board is most interested in interest rate plays in all the major currencies: US$, Euro, Canada, and Australia. We are also interested in major market indicies: US, India, Nikkei, etc, but we are not looking for discussion on individual stocks.
Market anlaysis can include what is happening on the housing scene in the US, UK, Australia, etc, fundamental analysis of US treasuries, discussion of commentary from Mauldin, Roach, Fleck or others, and/or technical analysis of currencies, gold or silver.
Our aim is to be on the correct side of the great inflation/deflation/stagflation debate that is raging on SI and elsewhere. Our discussion of these global trends will hopfully help us make better investment decisions in light of fluctuating global economic conditions.
