    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

Good point but the correlation is weak to the actual, thanks for reminding me we will show the correlation in the next update!

In order for gold to rally like it did in the period between 1929-1934 it has to decouple from the stock market. In the 1929-1934 periods the stock market was going down while gold was rallying to new highs. So far when the market tanks so has gold but if you notice gold recovers faster while the general markets lags. Is it possible that the gold market is setting itself up for the next explosive move up while the market continues down? My predication for 2012 Gold will easily hit 2500.00 an ounce, silver will hit 75 an ounce and the Dow will be at 8700 by year’s end. The gold juniors will have their day. We are in the very beginning of a bear market for stocks. But lastly less not forget that the NASDAQ has been in a bear market for eleven years. It has not touch the highs of 1999 when it was over 5000.

I agree with what you say about the technical analysis, if everybody is reading the same chart they are pretty useless from a day to day basis but for the long term they provide some value when use with fundamental analysis and the study of the stock market along with what’s happening in the world. In other words the tech charts should be just a small part of an investors arsenal.
