AI and Robotics – We Are All Low-Skilled Workers Now

BY PATRICK WATSON : The news headlines after last week’s jobs report proved it again: Life is hard (and getting harder) for low-skilled workers. Illegal immigrants take their service industry jobs. Robots take their manufacturing industry jobs.
According to the media, many low-skilled workers have simply given up. They’re dropping out of the labor force, going on welfare, overdosing on drugs. Their lives are terrible, and everyone wants to help.

Cryobanking Could Solve The Transplant Organ Shortage

BY PATRICK COX : What’s the one medical condition most likely to kill you? If you follow statistics, you’d probably say heart disease. Each year, more than a million Americans have a heart attack. And about one in four deaths in the US is due to the condition.
Though heart disease tops most “causes of death” lists, far more Americans die due to the transplant organ shortage. And heart transplants could prevent most cardiac arrest deaths.

Time for Crude Oil Price Drop below $50?

Trading position (short-term; our opinion): Short positions (with a stop-loss order at $56.45 and an initial downside target at $45.81) are justified from the risk/reward perspective.
On Wednesday, crude oil lost 2.57% after the head of the IEA warned of a significant increase in U.S. shale output as OPEC and non-OPEC producers cut output. This news negatively affected the investors’ sentiment and pushed the black gold under important support levels. What does it mean for light crude? View full post on The Market Oracle

Stock Market Interesting, Mixed Session

The stock market indices had an interesting, mixed session. A late rally on both the Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 put them in the plus column, but the Dow did not get into the plus column, although it did come off the lows.
The day started out with a sharp pop to the upside, reaching 5058 Nasdaq 100, filling the gap from yesterday morning. The S&P 500 jumped as high as 2270 1/2, but couldn’t really get over yesterday’s high. The Nasdaq 100 was stronger today. They then pulled back midday, consolidated in wedges, and in the last hour, broke out and ran back up again.

Gold Price 50-DMA Breakout

In yesterday’s alert, we wrote that the decline in the USD Index was likely a temporary phenomenon based on the investor’s needless overreaction – the USD reversed and more than erased this week’s decline. The metals’ reaction was also in tune with our expectations – they reversed. Was this just a one-day phenomenon and will gold rally based on its recent breakout above its 50-day moving average or can we expect more declines in the following days?

Stock Market Dow 20,000: A New Beginning…or The Beginning of The End?

After touching the benchmark 20,000 level last month, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has spent the last five weeks in a tight, narrow trading range just under this level. Famed trader Jesse Livermore theorized in his pseudonymous book, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, that stocks are attracted to major round number levels. In the case of the Dow, the 20,000 level has generated more press and speculation among investors than any number since the formerly mythical 10,000 level was crossed in 1999. Clearly Dow 20,000 carries a tremendous psychological significance, even if it’s a simple case of self-fulfilling prophecy.
