Internet changed the world, but we have only seen the beginning. You all know what happend to the print media. Internet relegated the print media to insignificance! Not only have the subscriptions gone, but the ad revenue has dropped dramatically too.
We are now seeing the same with the television. More than 5 million have already “cut the cord”. People ditched ordinary television in favor of online content from the likes of Hulu, Aereo, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, iTunes video and Goolgle Play. This trend will continue and is accelerating too.
Netflix is growing month after month and the ordinary cable TV subscriptions declines every day. A dramatic change. For every one American who ditched cable TV, we saw two signed up for Netflix. Now, you know what to buy and what to short?
Some investors are talking about a bubble in the technology industry. Is that right? Well, Nasdaq is nearing 4.000, and that is a level we have not seen since September 2000. Just months after the tech market collapsed. All this only a few months after the U.S Government shut down for 16 days early in October this year. This bull market is very odd!
Investors are bearish on gold and this precious metal is now trading at $1284,00. Once again below the support level at $1300. It is heading for the first annual loss since 2000. People do not belive in it anymore.
Gold slumped 23% this year and this is the biggest annual loss since 1981. Gold drops because the inflation everyone is waiting for fails to accelerate and the S&P 500 reaches all-time highs. I think people are bearish before Yellen`statement. She is ready to back stimulus until she sees a great growth in the economy.
