VRA Update: Trump’s Pattern Change. It’s Time for Insurance

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

Because pattern/trend analysis is such an important investing concept for active (and passive) investors, it’s time that we address the politlcal elephant in the room…the possibility that the Donald Trump of the campaign trail may not be the same Donald Trump that we now have as President. The possibility that a pattern change is occuring…
Remember, $3 trillion in US stock market gains have occured since 11/8, with much of the credit going to our newly elected president. It’s not called the “Trump Rally” for nothing. Plus, as you’ve heard me cover many times, the first year of a new presidency is when all sorts of bad things tend to happen; the Civil War, both World Wars, Vietnam, plus 9/11…each of these started/took place in a new presidents first year. Add to these, 10 bear markets and 8 serious recessions…with each starting in year 1.
No, I am not off the Trump train. But I’m also not a blind follower, of anyone. And, hypocrisy may be my least favorite personality trait, period.

VRA Update: Wait Til May, To Sell and Go Away

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

All week long, the markets have rallied back off of opening losses…just as we expected…with solid moves higher off of 21 dma, 50dma and 100 dma. Nothing about this market says “sell”.

Remember, April is historically the strongest month for stocks, with a 1.9% average gain going back to 1950 (with thanks to my friends at the Stock Traders Almanac).

VRA Update: An Extraordinary Phone Call

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

While short term overbought, everything that I see is confirming that the 3 month highs we’re seeing right now in precious metals are only just the beginning. The planets appear to be aligned for us. In just the last 2 months the VRA has total gains of more than 370% in our VRA Core Portfolio mining stocks.

Bu today, I have to share some details from a phone call I had with a long time VRA Subscriber from New York. “John” is a senior bank officer with one of the largest banks in the country. I assured him that I wouldn’t include his real name (or the name of his bank), but everything else is as exactly as he told me.

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that you have an even better New Year and 2017.

This past Friday I wrote the last word of my second book. Waves of relief! “CrashProof Prosperity 2.0, Becoming Wealthy in the Age of Trump” should be out of final edits this week.

Typically this is the slowest week in the stock market…but before we decide to phone it in for the next few trading sessions, let’s remember what happened at exactly this time last year.

VRA Update: VRA System Analysis; Major Disconnects and Extreme Readings

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

Good Wednesday morning all. Before we get the latest VRA System update, allow me to share some personal insights on where we are today in the intersection of politics and the investment markets. Some of what I will share here is “emotion” based…and we know exactly how terrible emotion based investing can be. For example, emotional investing was dead wrong about Brexit (after 2 days of heavy selling, the markets soared higher). Of course, emotional investing has been equally dead wrong about Trump winning, with an all out assault on 18 fresh market highs.

VRA Update: The Market Got This Wrong. Gold is Headed Higher

by Kip Herriage Kip Herriage No Comments

This morning, I’m going to focus on a single issue. Post election, like many of you, I have been surprised at the reaction in precious metals and the miners. The conventional wisdom was that a Trump victory would mean “lower stock prices and higher gold prices”…and of course we’ve seen just the opposite…making the conventional wisdom, conventionally wrong…again!

In retrospect, we can make sense of it.
