Historical past Rhymes: 1974-1976 vs. 2022-2024? | Mish’s Market Minute

What number of of you’ve gotten heard me say that commodities are inherently risky?

Clearly, from this chart, you may see that after the oil rally within the mid Seventies, the CPI went from almost 9% in 1974 all the way down to 2% in 1976. Sugar, my favourite barometer of inflation, ran to $.66 a pound in 1974, after which all the way down to round $.08 cents a pound in 1976. Big. As sugar peaked, inflation, as measured by CPI, had a stupendous drop inside 2 years.

Equally, the CPI peaked in June 2022 at round 9%, and right here we’re with CPI at present at 3.6%. If the timeline matches, we might see inflation decline additional into 2024. Nevertheless, the whole lot strikes rather a lot quicker now.

So, let’s assume that historical past rhymes somewhat than repeats. If that’s the case, inflation is due for one more run, even when oil calms down from present ranges.

After the trough in inflation in 1976, it took 4 years for the following peak to hit. In 1980, CPI reached almost 15%. Sugar ran from $.08 again as much as round $.45 a pound by 1980.

At current, if we scale back the timeframes, after 1.5 years of declining inflation, possibly we see one other 2-3 years of climbing inflation.

Does inflation peak in 2024-2025? It might be a bit horrifying, worrying about a lot larger inflation. Nonetheless, we search for alternatives to make cash.

Final week we wrote about gold miners. As we speak, September 18th, GDX the ETF for gold miners cleared the 50-DMA for a second consecutive time and went right into a confirmed recuperation section. And that is earlier than the Fed assembly.

We additionally talked about that miners typically lead the dear metals markets. And all heading larger means extra inflation considerations.

3 technical indicators to notice, and all inline with the IBD interview featured over the weekend.

Calendar Ranges: GDX held the July 6-month calendar vary low (pink line). We think about {that a} reversal. There’s nonetheless fairly a distance to the July 6-month calendar vary excessive (inexperienced line).

Phases: GDX has 2 closes over the 50-DMA, which has a barely unfavourable slope. Nevertheless, the section has improved to Recuperation. Moreover, Real Motion (momentum) exhibits some resistance on the 50-DMA (blue line). Therefore, we want extra momentum.

Leadership: GDX now convincingly outperforms the SPY. That too, nevertheless, wants a lift over the dotted Bollinger Band resistance.
