Inflation Bugs Puking

By -

The April PPI report continues the disinflationary theme

The April PPI report came in to the disinflationary side, and as a side note unemployment claims jumped to the highest level since 2021. And inflation-centric goldbugs are scattering out of the inflation stuff, a label the majority of them wrongly assign to gold and worse, gold stocks. I just wish I could set my watch by these herds because then I’d sell everything and await the inevitable opportunity they produce.

However, on this cycle I have been much lighter on gold stocks than I will be when the next buying opportunity comes as the inflation bugs scatter amid accelerating real fundamentals *, probably amid a deflation scare if NFTRH’s existing theme, to which I strongly considered an alternative last weekend, manifests. But as yet, no Dedollarisation as USD holds support after the weak inflation data this week.
