  • World Charts Look Risky
  • Outside Bars Suggest Reversal
  • Commodities Under Fire
  • Timing on the Copper and Steel charts is Unnerving
  • Energy-related ETFs and Stocks have Huge Caution Signs
  • Watching to see if Gold is the Next Bullish Move (expecting a huge move)

Continuing with my theme of trouble out there, banks, industrials, brokers and energy all had another tough week. The video this week shows 50 or 60 charts corroborating an all-asset testing of risk right here. Bond prices soared, yields plummeted. While the world clings to hope that the recession is still a year away, my charts say otherwise.

Outside weekly bars occurred on a significant number of indexes around the world. An outside bar is when the market makes a higher high and a lower low in comparison to the prior week. The thinking is that the market tested higher prices and got rejected. Then, as the price goes down and tests

Software for Affinity Networks


This post is by Brad Feld from Feld Thoughts

I’m been looking around for software to help me manage an increasing number of affinity networks. These are networks that I’ve created around different topics, such as the books I’ve written – like Startup Communities and Venture Deals – as well as topics I’m exploring with small to medium sized groups of people.

So far I’ve tried a bunch of stuff and have ended up back at email groups, which is the least common denominator. I’ve tried a few different products for email groups and always end up back at Google Groups, which is fine, but extremely uninspiring in terms of anything beyond “creating the group” and “sending around emails.”

I’ve tried Facebook, LinkedIn, and Slack. None of them work. I’m now completely off Facebook, so that’s not really an option anymore. LinkedIn is way too LockedIn and has serious limitations. Slack is a messy nightmare that has a

This past week Laura Shin did an interview with Vitalik Buterin, the founder of the Ethereum project. I am going to run a video of that conversation next week.

Laura started her interview with Vitalik by playing for him and everyone else in the room a bit of this conversation Tushar Jain and I had last fall.

So I am reblogging this conversation so it is fresh in everyone’s minds when I run Laura’s Vitalik interview next week.

HAI Roundtable on AI and the Economy

…the first event at Stanford’s HAI (Human-Centered AI Institute) today.

We were asked to open with the prompt: What do you see as the top three challenges and opportunities that AI presents for the Economy? I suggested:

1) The inevitability of accelerating inequality in our economic system
2) Concentration effects in companies (Google ASIC farms) and cultures (China, unfettered by privacy laws like HIPAA), compounding power laws on fractal scales.
3) The abundant opportunity in a post-employment era
4) Evolutionary divergence in technology (between classical engineering and iterative algorithms)

I’ll share the summary policy/research agenda paper when it becomes available. Meanwhile, here is the summary from the last one, 4 years ago (that I hosted at work).

With: Erik Brynjolfsson (MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy), Reid Garrett Hoffman, Fei-Fei Li (HAI) and James Manyika (McKinsey Global Institute), in this lineup, and John Seely

Progress through Positive Memes!

Last Friday I wrote about the power and danger of the meme of suppressed truth. In the post, I suggested that one form of countering negative memes is through positive ones. Since creating memes is definitely not my strength, please don’t expect any novel GIFs in this post. But let me start with an example of what I have in mind

via GIPHY

Yes, Captain Picard! Star Trek is a great source of positive memes. The show in its various incarnations is one of the only sustained narratives of a diverse post-scarcity world in which knowledge is valued deeply (both scientific and artistic).

And obviously I am not suggesting that this is just about circulating more GIFs from Star Trek, although that’s a great idea. Rather we generally need more positive memes that extol learning, curiosity, grit, accomplishment, etc. Memes here is to be understood in the broader sense of Continue reading “Progress through Positive Memes!”

DP WEEKLY WRAP: Fakeout Breakout; Bond Blastoff

Last week certain indicators had me looking for a short-term market top, and on Wednesday it looked as if it had arrived. But no. On Thursday the market moved to new rally highs on volume that wasn’t too little or too much, so I thought that looked like a pretty solid breakout. But no — it was a fakeout. Friday saw a level of selling that we haven’t seen for some time, and price retested support that goes back to the three important price tops that were formed late last year. So we finally got the short-term top I was looking for, and in our market discussion below we will look for clues as to what might happen next.

General Electric has sold 650 megawatts of joint venture-owned renewable energy projects, less than two months after trumpeting an expansion of its renewables arm.


The sale involved seven projects belonging to Enel Green Power North America Renewable Energy Partners (EGPNA REP), an equally owned joint venture between Enel Green Power North America and GE Capital&rsquo;s Energy Financial Services, GE&rsquo;s energy investing arm.


GE&rsquo;s joint venture partner bought the assets, which had an enterprise value of around $900 million, for $256 million, said the Italian power giant Enel in <a href="https://www.enel.com/media/press/d/2019/03/enel-acquired-650-mw-of-renewable-capacity-from-its-us-joint-venture-egpna-rep" >a press release</a>.


The assets included 25 megawatts of geothermal at Cove Fort in Utah and 13.4 megawatts in Salt Wells, Nevada; 400 megawatts of wind at Cimarron Bend in Kansas and 150 megawatts in Lindahl, North Dakota; and a 59.5-megawatt geothermal-solar facility in Stillwater, Nevada.&nbsp;

Week Ahead: Upsides May Remain Limited; Corrective Moves Likely From Higher Levels

Following an unabated up move over the last several days, the markets finally took a breather on the last trading day of the week. After the session on Friday, the NIFTY has displayed visible signs of consolidation creeping in to the markets, which had become steeply overbought on the daily charts. As the week ended, it also highlighted the major resistance area for the markets on the weekly chart, in the form of the lower trend line of the 30-month-old upward rising channel that the NIFTY broke on the downside.

In our previous weekly note, we had categorically recommended putting prudence before greed and avoiding blindly chasing the up moves. Correspondingly, the NIFTY saw a paring of over 140 points from the week’s high, ending the week with net gain of just 30.05 points (+0.26%).

The markets, on both daily and weekly charts, have shown very evident signs of fatigue.
