By Ryan Puplava CMT – The big question on my mind, is whether this correction will be like the many we have faced or whether this correction is not like the others. The issue is that many of the fear indicators we’ve used in the past to pinpoint capitulation...

Call me a stupid American (you wouldn’t be the first), but, whenever I’m cooking Asian dishes, that great Muppet stand-up comedian, Fozzie Bear, is never far from my mind. As I’m tossing stir-fried vegetables in my iconic, round-bottom Asian cooking vessel, Mr. F. Bear’s signature tagline sits...
