I am returning to focusing on the economy. In the first segment I am going to cover the equities markets, metals, the dollar, Shanghai metal prices, BDI, VIX…All of the Indicators that we’ve been following. I believe that it is critical for us to closely monitor all activity at the beginning of the production chain.

It stands to reason that if ships and trucks are slowing down or even not as full as in a normal economy, this will give us a good idea of the coming Quarterly reports. Ultimately, we are looking for signs like if other countries are no longer using the Dollar.
In the 2nd segment, I am going to be covering all of the economic news items from the past week.
This week, I want to come up with a point system to assign scores to each of the economic factors. For example, let’s say that the VIX is below 10 so we score it with 5 points. If VIX is 10 to 15, we add 10 points and so on. This will be a cumulative score. We could score a down DOW, S&P 500 and Gold. A normal market should clearly show where money is going. If money is coming out of Stocks, it should go into safe havens like Treasuries or Gold. I want to include my audience. We have some pretty bright people and my biggest goal is to try and spot significant changes in the economy.
