In This Issue   Currencies metals look to bu

first_imgIn This Issue. *  Currencies & metals look to build steam. *  FOMC & RBNZ meet this week. *  Gold pushes higher. *  The data cupboard gets back to work! And, Now, Today’s Pfennig For Your Thoughts! A Black Box For Your Car. Good day.  And a Marvelous Monday to you! Whew! I’m draggin’ the line this morning, as I stayed up 1 inning too long last night! UGH! The World Series is tied 2-2, but if could have found a way to win last night, we could be going for the clincher, at home, tonight. UGH! Oh well, no one said it was going to be easy! My beloved Missouri Tigers lost their first game of the season, Saturday night, blowing a 17-0 lead! It was the first time I’ve seen my Tigers lose, in person that is, in a long time! And it was a cold night! Brrrrrrrrrrr! So, here we are, the last week of Rocktober, and in a couple of days the kids will go Trick-or-treating. I love sitting out on the porch, giving out candy to the little ones, and see how confused they are about the whole thing. It won’t be long and we’ll be talking Turkey, and then Christmas. I actually saw a Christmas commercial on TV last night. Best Buy wins the prize for pushing the envelope on Christmas this year! Sorry about the late delivery of the Pfennig on Friday, Chris was frantically texting me, but I was driving and not paying attention to my phone. There was nothing I could do to fix the problem any way. Which made me think of the predicament that we are in here in the U.S. with debt. Sure there are lots of things that could be done, but unless the lawmakers are willing to address the elephant in the room, it will all be games that people play. On Friday, the currencies took a breather from their weeklong assault on the U.S. dollar, but this morning, it appears that the currencies and metals are building some steam for another weeklong assault on the green/peachback. Chris told you on Friday, when you finally received the Pfennig, which by the way, was posted on the site early in the morning at , well, Chris said that the euro had reached a 2-year high. Again I find a lot of comfort in the fact that I have for a few years now, told people that “with all the negativity surrounding the Eurozone, the euro continues to hold a higher price than the dollar.. So, I would say, What does that tell you about what the markets really feel toward the dollar?  But now that the relative calm that I began to talk about over a year ago, is really comfortable in the Eurozone, the focus has shifted back to the U.S. and the euro can gain even more VS the dollar. Sure unemployment in Italy and Spain is no picnic right now, but the balance sheets of these countries are healing. They can deal with their labor problem once each respective country’s balance sheet is stable.  I know that sounds a bit callous but, sometimes the truth hurts. So for now, the euro gains on the dollar weakness, but its gains will be tempered by the goings on in the peripheral counties of the Eurozone. Elsewhere, the Aussie dollar (A$) spent a couple of days in the doghouse last week, but that appears to be so last week, and now the A$ sets out to make amends for its sins last week. Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Gov. Stevens, will speak tonight, and hopefully he will stick to the party line that low rates are filtering their way through the economy, and there’s no need for additional accommodation at this time. Anything else would most likely be harmful to the A$, so the risk for the A$ tonight is that Stevens goes to a place that he shouldn’t. In New Zealand, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) will meet this week, and hopefully they will keep their eyes on the ball. Recall, I’ve told you that I believe that the RBNZ will look to hike rates in the 1st QTR of 2014, so anything that the RBNZ has to say now that deviates from that thought would not be constructive for the New Zealand dollar / kiwi. I don’t expect the RBNZ to do anything to harm kiwi this week, so kiwi continues to look for smooth sailing. Ok. I just had to stop for the 3rd time already this morning, with a sour stomach, I think I’ll end this shorter than usual this morning, and head back home, apparently, my stomach isn’t going to cooperate with working today. The price of Gold is flat this morning and the shiny metal is trading around $1,350. I was doing some reading last week and came across something that I thought was interesting, and hope you will too.  From:  This is a Gold trader named Gary Savage, talking to the people at  and he was asked about when the bubble phase would kick in for Gold. “Well, my original feeling was that the bubble phase would probably go to somewhere between $5000 and $7000 an oz. but they’ve damaged the supply side fundamentals. They damaged them severely with this manipulation and what typically happens is the more severe the manipulation is and the more artificial the move is, the more violent the move will be in the other direction when the artificial market is broken. So this has been a severe event over the last year and they have really damaged the supply side in gold. So now, I’m thinking we could see $10,000.” Chuck again. But hold on dear readers. Gary Savage thinks that before Gold can head to the Bubble Phase, it will first test some lows and head to $1,000 oz.   YIKES! I sure hope he’s wrong about that!… If you want to read the whole article you can find it at: So. have you followed the news on the reduction of payment amounts on foods stamps (EBT?) As far as I can tell, it appears that on Nov 1st, a lot of recipients will see a $36 reduction in their line of credit each month.  And, also, as far as I can tell, the U.S. Gov’t is preparing for riots, spending millions of dollars to beef up security.   Look, I don’t want to pat myself on the back on this, for this is too serious of a thing, but. Long ago and far away, I told you dear reader, and conference attendee, that when it came to cutting debt, we would have to see a reduction in benefits, and that could lead to social unrest.  Well, it appears that all that could be happening.  If it does, it will not be pretty, and if it doesn’t, well, we can thank our lucky stars, but that doesn’t mean it won’t ever happen.  But these are the things that happen when you accumulate debt like we have. Eventually you have to deal with the debt, and make cuts. The U.S. data cupboard gets back into business this week starting today with two of my faves. Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization will print for September. Don’t expect any miracles here, and you won’t be disappointed, for I doubt there’s much change at all in these data prints from the August numbers.  Tomorrow, we’ll finally see September Retail Sales, and given the indication from the BHI (Butler Household Index) I would have to think that this data will disappoint. We’ll also see the S&P/CaseShiller Home Price Index for August, and then when Wednesday comes along the FOMC will meet. The FOMC will be the Big Kahuna this week. I would have to think, and I’ve already told you this, but the events in Washington D.C. earlier this month, have all but put the kyboshes on any thoughts of tapering this year. So, the Fed Heads will meet, no time to get the board games out for it’s just a one-day meeting, and they will leave rates unchanged, which is a given, according to the Fed Heads from previous meetings, and they will whine and cry about the disruptions to the economy. So, I’m not sure why this is such a big deal this week, but the markets are holding their collective breath, so I guess I’ll play along. For What It’s Worth. OK. Years ago, when the debt accumulation began to really be noticed by people other than me and my dear Pfennig Readers, I told you that when a country gets so deep into debt, there will be taxes like we’ve not seen in our lifetime, and a loss of freedoms. I’ve often said that my grandkids will not enjoy the freedoms that I did. Well, here we go! I saw this story on the Drudge Report last night, and about fell out of my chair. It came from the L.A. Times. (  “As America’s road planners struggle to find the cash to mend a crumbling highway system, many are beginning to see a solution in a little black box that fits neatly by the dashboard of your car. The devices, which track every mile a motorist drives and transmit that information to bureaucrats, are at the center of a controversial attempt in Washington and state planning offices to overhaul the outdated system for funding America’s major roads. The push comes as the country’s Highway Trust Fund, financed with taxes Americans pay at the gas pump, is broke. Americans don’t buy as much gas as they used to. Cars get many more miles to the gallon. The federal tax itself, 18.4 cents per gallon, hasn’t gone up in 20 years. Politicians are loath to raise the tax even one penny when gas prices are high.” Chuck again. Sure, you can toe the company line here and say, “Well, we need to pay for the roads somehow”. But what about the whole Idea that if the little black box can track your mileage, then it can track where you go, and then we have the whole Big Brother thing. Think about that. To recap. The currencies took a breather Friday, on their weeklong assault of the dollar. This morning, it appears the currencies and metals are building some steam for another assault of the dollar this week. The FOMC meets this week, but will probably opt for whining and crying about all the disruptions to the economy. The RBNZ will also meet this week, hopefully there will be no surprises and they will keep to the thought that rates will be raised in Q1, 2014.

On plans for HIRREM research

first_imgOn plans for HIRREM research. The process involves having sensors on different parts of the scalp that are continuously monitoring brainwaves. The software analyzes that very quickly, identifies specific frequencies, and translates those into audible tones in real time. Those are then played back by ear buds in very short order. And the brain constantly changes, so what the individual receiving it hears is a series of tones, in essence providing an opportunity in one sense to listen to the song that the brain is playing—or at least to listen to itself—and, figuratively speaking, because of that rapid updating about information regarding its own pattern, to look at itself in an electronic or acoustic mirror. *** An online version of the study results is in the December 22 edition of the journal Military Medical Research. How does allowing the brain to look at itself in this way help reduce PTSD symptoms? Somehow that rapid updating about its own pattern really does support the brain to make self-adjustments toward improved balance or reduced hyperarousal to sort of reset stress response patterns that had become rewired or kind of stuck because of repetitive or chronic traumatic events. What has been the most promising feedback you’ve received from the 18 service members involved in the pilot study, and what have been the most encouraging results to you professionally? Yes. The exact mechanism remains to be fully understood, but it appears that resonance between the acoustic stimulation and the oscillating networks in the brain play some role, potentially like a musical instrument tuning itself. But, when we see the brain have an opportunity to do that, we observe that in most folks the brain pattern will shift towards improved balance and reduced hyperarousal. And the correlative of that is that now they typically begin to report reduced symptoms. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 31 percent of Vietnam veterans, 10 percent of Gulf War/Desert Storm veterans and 11 percent of Afghanistan veterans have experienced post-traumatic stress disorder. Their symptoms can include insomnia, poor concentration, sadness, re-experiencing traumatic events, irritability or hyper-alertness, as well as diminished cardiovascular condition.Medications to treat these conditions have been available for decades, and they provide relief for many of those experiencing PTSD. But some servicemen and women would prefer not to take medication. They don’t like the way it makes them feel. Side effects like fatigue, an inability to think clearly and others are common.A recent report by the Wake Forest School of Medicine is showing promise for those who suffer from PTSD. The school concluded a pilot study using sound to help military veterans heal without the use of medication. It’s been used in the past for concussion patients as well.In this single-site study, 18 service members or recent veterans who experienced symptoms over one to 25 years, received an average of 19 ½ sessions over 12 days. Symptom data were collected before and after the study sessions, and follow-up online interviews were conducted at intervals of one, three and six months.Dr. Charles Tegeler is the study’s principal investigator. He spoke with WFDD’s David Ford about the technology called high-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring, known by the acronym, HIRREM.Dr. Charles Tegeler is a professor of neurology at Wake Forest School of Medicine. (Photo courtesy of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center)Interview HighlightsHow does HIRREM work? That so many of them had struggled for so many years with symptoms and had tried so many things, and so for them it was wonderful that they were able to observe benefits, reduced symptoms and things they’d struggled with for a long time. And from our perspective, seeing benefits in the autonomic nervous system function. One of the gratifying things with that specific project was that it seemed to be very well tolerated—we had no one drop out of that project—and we also saw durability. We did follow-up up to six months online after they left us to check symptoms, and we saw durability in those symptom reductions up to six months. Is the brain resetting process where the mystery lies for researchers? Ultimately, our vision for the future could be that we could use this to focus on improved wellness, wellbeing, prevention. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to help mitigate the effects of that chronic stress—turn the spigot off before it becomes a raging torrent causing symptoms and diseases? So, looking to try to apply this in other ways before it gets to the stage of severity that many of these initial groups we worked with had reached.last_img read more
