ELECTION JITTERS: FULL-BLOWN MELTDOWN!

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends.

Yesterday, markets absolutely crashed hard.

What’s causing this unbelievable volatility? In one word, it’s the election. This November 3rd, the world’s leading economy, the one that holds the reserve currency status, could erupt into chaos.

The markets were sure that Biden will win due to the polls, which they couldn’t believe would be wrong again, but the reality is proving much more complicated.

For one, Hunter Biden’s scandal is getting suppressed at 20x the force that the bullion banks depressed silver at the turn of the decade. If Trump’s son was in the same shoes, there would have been no COVID-19 coverage anymore – his recordings would be playing 24/7 and spreading like fire on all social media platforms.

The United States media has lost all credibility and any sense of fairness or dignity.

October is notoriously the most volatile month of the calendar year, and the NASDAQ 100 is very close to another flash correction (-10%).

What we’re hearing from Jeff Gundlach, David Einhorn, and Stanley Druckenmiller is distressing and alarming. Gundlach is predicting a revolution this decade. Einhorn has called the top of the tech bubble (as of September 2nd). Druckenmiller is on edge.

Going back more than 120 years, the data shows that October is a unique month; for some reason, the biggest market crashes occur within this calendar month.

As you can see, the tech bubble of today is only half as expensive as the one in the 2000s, so before we start predicting a great depression 2.0, know that we personally don’t treat this volatility as the telltale signs of a huge meltdown.

We acknowledge the fact that stocks are expensive, but we also know that times are different.

Therefore, keep “living” what’s going on instead of looking to build fantasy scripts in your mind like the ones I read about every day that forecast -80% drops as if those occur every Monday morning.

The worst black swan event in a century only managed to move markets down by -35% in March, so think of what -80% really entails…

We live in a world of expensive assets and zero-percent interest rates. At some point in the coming years, the whole thing will have to be reversed, neutralized, or reset – IT’S MADNESS.

On the other side of this chaos, I expect the motherlode of all stimulus packages – wait for fireworks, even if they take a couple of months to kick in.

Governments are under severe threat of existential legitimacy and people want money. They will GET IT, and that is a clear catalyst for commodities.

America Economy Emergency Preparedness Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Major Event markets no one is coming to save you

STOCKS DEMOLISHED: WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?

This article was contributed by The Wealth Research Group. 

Oh man, yesterday proved what happens when there’s uncertainty about a major event, coupled with the CERTAINTY that no Federal Reserve is coming to your aid in the days ahead. This is education for the millennials, who have been trained to expect Daddy Jerome Powell to show up every time they load-up.

There is no BACKUP COMING, no Navy Seals coming to the rescue.

This is it; between now and perhaps the end of the year, price discovery is going to be real. We’re going to see exactly what big money and algorithms think about valuations with nothing to prop up markets.

Panic? YES. Volatility? SURE. Buying opportunities? 100%. Craziness and illogical behavior? EVERYWHERE you look.

This will be one of the most important investment months of your career. By acting responsibly, professionally, and with poise and composure, not with an inability to see positions going up and down like yoyos, one will be able to exploit others’ mental incapability to handle bullets firing above their heads.

For the next few days, the FED is out of the business of putting a floor on stocks; perhaps even more than just a few days…

The major indices are now RED for the month of October.

Famed hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who got his ba**s handed to him for shorting TSLA, is convinced the markets peaked on September 2nd. He believes the bubble is over and cites IPO mania, elevated valuations for the Robinhood app darlings, market concentration (FAANG), options trading volumes being off the charts, and the parabolic charts of some stocks.

On top of that, Rasmussen polled Americans and has issued a VICTORY ALERT for President Trump – what a turnaround.

The same polling company actually found that tens of millions of Americans likely believe that a REAL McCoy Civil War is a possibility.

Courtesy: visualcapitalist.com

This chart has a lot to do with how America got here!

The ability to create currency and segregate it so it ends up in the hands of the rich and powerful to decide what to do with it has led to expensive asset prices, record buyback programs, no wage growth, and the worst income gap in history.

Think about the process of currency creation: how dollars are born and get pushed into the banking system where the institution cherishes safety and lends to the big and the wealthy, STARVING the real economy.

I personally bought shares yesterday, according to the watch lists we have previously published, taking nibbles at companies, not whole chunks.

NEVER buy a full allocation right off the bat; one can be fully correct on the potential of the company and COMPLETELY WRONG on the timing. Being flexible with your purchases (being patient about the process) is the tactic of successful investors.

Nothing is “now or never” – NOTHING. There’s always time to think things through.

The odds are fully in your favor; let the game come to you.

As I see it, if Joe Biden wins (despite this huge controversy with Hunter’s compromised dealings with China), between now and January 2021, it’s going to get sickening at times since the world will be paralyzed until Inauguration Day. If Trump wins, I still don’t expect SMOOTH SAILING because I think a contested result is coming either way, but Trump won’t lose a recount if he wins the initial vote.

THIS IS EXCITING.

NOT AGAIN: Stocks In CORRECTION TIME!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

Obviously, the Democrats have a VESTED INTEREST in making sure the Republicans get down ON THEIR KNEES before a stimulus package is approved since markets would be negatively impacted until it happens.

They want them to beg.

What’s going to happen in the next THREE WEEKS is that you’re going to see what going for all the marbles means!

All of the skeletons, dirty laundry, and smears possible will BE IMPLEMENTED.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

PortfolioWealthGlobal.com believes that you’re ABOUT TO SEE what’s called a RECESSION-FEAR sentiment kick in, since everyone has now BEEN CONVINCED that there’s no recession in sight, so any vaccine delay or SECOND WAVE of infections and hospitalization bumps will BE DETRIMENTAL — investors have made a killing since March, so there will also be profit-taking!

Here’s what we think is most important of all: there will BE VOLATILITY, maybe even for a few months, until the FINAL TALLY is determined and we have an officially confirmed president.

In our opinion, because of Covid-19, the economy is moving towards certain industries, which will get SUPER-STRONG. We actually will have a new report out; the PREVIOUS FOUR (2, 3, and 4) have been tremendous successes.

Do you know who cares most about equities? WEALTHY PEOPLE!

Do you know who cares about jobs? THE REST OF US!

I want to tell you that the best thing you can do is find out how to take YOUR SKILLS and capitalize on them, since this recovery is going to offer plenty of opportunities.

The coronavirus has shown me how limited governments are at solving personalized issues. Everything is either comprehensive and broad-based and just inefficient.

So, what are my notes to you?

  1. If you’re STILL EMPLOYED, see what more you can do for your employer. Begin to get things done with HIGHER QUALITY and come up with ideas for improvement.

Go the extra mile so much that he thinks you’re A CHANGED MAN.

Think and then act as if the business is yours!

You’ll see results; in fact, you won’t believe the outcomes of a CHANGED ATTITUDE and approach.

  1. If you’re BETWEEN JOBS, capitalize on this flexibility. Look at things close by, but this might also be an opportunity to get creative, move to other areas of the country, change careers or work from home.

As much as possible, keep your OPTIONS OPEN.

  1. If everything is fine, KEEP AT IT!

The world has changed; live accordingly.

TOOTH AND NAIL: ARE YOU BETTING ON GOLD $3,000?

This article was contributed by Tom Beck with Portfolio Wealth Global.

Covid-19 is a GIANT MESS, which happened when the world’s economic machine was DOING AMAZING!

Many people WILL SCOFF at this, saying that their own personal situation wasn’t great and that there’s poverty and misery all around them. True, there are and probably WILL CONTINUE TO BE disharmonious circumstances in every city, in every neighborhood, and in each and every country, but those have LITTLE TO DO with the economic machine.

There’s a MAD RACE in place; you’re IN IT, whether you’re aware of it or not — it’s called CAPITALISM and though we keep hearing that “capitalism is broken,” please don’t KID YOURSELF!

If somebody else in your area is getting richer, wiser, more sophisticated, more loved, healthier or JUST BETTER and you are not, he is CAPITALIZING ON REALITY, while you’re not.

Do you want everything to be TRULY FAIR, before you begin to play the game? DON’T BE NAÏVE!

Nothing is fair and especially with governments; their single role is to do the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM to keep the masses in line.

Don’t rely on anything EXTERNAL; all riches start with ACTION on the part of the individual.

Did anyone tell young Warren Buffett to hit the books at age 13? He read hundreds of business and finance books by the time he graduated high school. Did anyone tell Elon Musk to develop PayPal or Tesla?

Do you think Steve Jobs’ mother pushed him to come up with the iPhone?

These people didn’t care who was the man in the WHITE HOUSE, what interest rates were, what their competition looked like or how IMPOSSIBLE AND UNLIKELY it was to become a self-made billionaire — they RE-WROTE HISTORY!

PortfolioWealthGlobal.com believes we’re in a HUGE BULL MARKET for precious metals, but unless one positions himself to make a fortune from it, the WHOLE THING means nothing to him, apart from some bragging rights.

Execute now; it takes DRAMATIC ACTION and relentless commitment to making it happen; don’t be fooled by the media. Success is always the result of a combination of the following:

  1. HIGH CONVICTION GOAL with no excuses – NONE WHATSOEVER about why it won’t get done.
  2. A support group; either FULL PARTNERS on the journey or closely-intimate associates and mentors.
  3. Charming personality; don’t think you can REALLY SUCCEED without an attractive character.
  4. BELIEF!

Put it in SIXTH GEAR and get it done; NO EXCUSES!

Business checks Controversy Donald Trump Economy Headline News Intelwars Jeff Bezos markets negotiating New Normal payments Philosophy Precious Metals stand your ground stimulus The Art of the Deal

GRAND LARCENY: TRUMP’S PLAYING WITH FIRE!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends. 

Donald Trump authored a book called The Art of the Deal. In it, he lays out his philosophy on business and, MORE SPECIFICALLY, on negotiations.

I want to analyze a number of KEY QUOTES from the book since they serve as a benchmark for what we’re about TO SEE NEXT:

  1. “Good publicity is preferable to bad, but from a bottom-line perspective, bad publicity is sometimes better than no publicity at all. Controversy, in short, sells.”

In this quote, President Trump is emphasizing the benefits of BEING CONTROVERSIAL over being boring. He chooses the latter and we believe that he definitely took this business approach into the presidency.

Virtually anything he does has a twist to it that inspires news commentators and headlines.

Here’s what happened JUST TWO DAYS ago:

This Twitter blast SPOOKED MARKETS in a way that was nearly instant. Trump is deploying another strategy that he shared in the book, which is that WHEN NEGOTIATING, you must be willing to say “NO” and to stand your ground.

It’s probably second nature to him, so investors who do not know HIS PLAYBOOK believed this was the end of it, but these are more like OPENING REMARKS.

The whole world has seen COVID-19 shock small businesses, large corporations, and anything in between.

People have been talking about the reset for decades. To us, this was A HUGE RESET — this was it.

There has been an UNPRECEDENTED EFFORT by all governments to weather through this crisis, and the GLOBAL RECOVERY could usher in a period of prosperity NOT SEEN since the end of WW2.

Don’t think in terms of doom and gloom – THINK REALITY.

I own a large amount of physical precious metals. In my opinion, their price will continue to rise over time, so I’m actually COMPOUNDING MY SAVINGS, but what the gold bugs MISS OUT ON is that all they do is HOPELESSLY WAIT for equities to suffer an 80% crash that may or may not occur once every 50-100 years. In the meantime, they aren’t IN THE GAME of equities and real estate, which is a shame, since asset prices are ON A TEAR.

Politicians around the world are operating under IMMENSE PRESSURE to ease, monetize, and stimulate their economies. They are on the brink of SOCIETAL MAYHEM if they don’t!

Everything is RIGGED IN YOUR FAVOR; the market is signaling to you that a massive growth period is ahead of us. We’d SHUT DOWN the global economy, and it doesn’t get MORE DIFFICULT than that, so the contrarian bet is to be engaged, not await some DREADED SECOND WAVE that may never come.

The U.S. will support and stimulate, China will do the same, and Europe will follow suit.

  1. “MY STYLE of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I’m after.”

It takes a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL to actually walk the talk of this great quote. This is literally the essence of being a shark in business, but in order to GET IT DONE, the other side must really like you (since they’re conceding), be distressed (in a weak spot), or be intimidated (Trump applies massive leverage).

It’s easier said than done, but we shall see how Trump makes this quote a reality and IF he is able to get the deal pushed through because Americans are OVERWHELMINGLY SUPPORTIVE of more fiscal stimulus.

  1. “Leverage: don’t make deals without it. Enhance.”

Trump is going for it and you’re either going to HATE HIS GUTS or be a raving fan; very few are in between.

We believe that in the next ten years, the business opportunities that this “new normal” will present are going to create wealthier people than Jeff Bezos.

Get in the game NOW!

Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Economy elections Gold Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden markets Politics presidents selections Silver Stocks volatile Voting

CODE RED: POTUS IN TROUBLE!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz at The Wealth Research Group. 

In one month, approximately ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY Million Americans will vote, if past is prologue. They can either elect the sitting president, Mr. Donald Trump, or his adversary, Mr. Joe Biden. As we speak, Trump has tested positive for coronavirus, has been whisked to the hospital, and is SUFFERING MILDLY and working through the disease.

The markets were DEFINITELY RATTLED on Friday and might open DEEP in the RED tomorrow as well, so with NINE MONTHS out of the way, today’s entire letter is devoted to the MATHEMATICAL RESULTS of following the various WATCHLISTS (four, in total) that we’ve released since March, which have received TREMENDOUS FEEDBACK.

Gold is MIMICKING 08′-11′ RESULTS, so we do anticipate the trend to continue, but there have been BUMPS along the way, since the August 5th RECORD-HIGH, so know that the softness of the miners, as of late, might be a real opportunity to get positioned, if one isn’t yet!

If you haven’t already, I highly suggest going through our 11 TRADING STRATEGIES report, which is a huge help in these types of cases. Access it HERE!

With that, here’s all we’ve ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER since March:

Millions of people got shaken out, since they had no one to bounce their ideas off of, but we hope that our conviction saved you 5, 6 and even 7 figures in your portfolio and retirement, while hedge fund clients were GREATLY DAMAGED by the mistaken thought that they’ll get to see a retest of the MARCH LOWS, thus parking in cash.

I plan to CAREFULLY REVIEW my guiding principles in life again today and spend the day expressing gratitude for living in 2020, surrounded by family, friends and the comforts that we take for granted at times. ACCESS them HERE, if you’d like.

China COVID-19 draconian laws Drama Economy experts Fear Forecasting Headline News Hedge Funds Intelwars markets pandemic plandemic recovery scamdemic Selling taxation is theft TAXES trade war United States

COME TO MAMA: Stocks & Metals BOTTOMED!

This article was originally published by Tom Beck at Portfolio Wealth Global. 

For three weeks, we’ve been explaining HOW CRUCIAL it is not to be PARALYZED BY the incessant fear and drama of those who are comparing 2020 with 1929 – it really isn’t.

There are REAL FORCES in motion, both in China and the USA, the two largest economies, which are GROWTH-ORIENTED.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

People are just NOT DOING their homework; the recovery is underway from this not-so-bad pandemic. The FORCE OF INERTIA behind this willingness to STAND FIRM and live with the disease is great; the masses do not want to be quarantined a SECOND TIME.

The fact of the matter is that we’re seeing an INSANE AMOUNT of selling and the only reason is that there’s an election in the pipeline; it’s not the second wave that is spooking markets. I want to remind everyone that the ECONOMIC MACHINE is bigger than any one president and it’s bigger than any one administration.

Entrepreneurs ADAPT; they adjust to trade wars, tariffs, taxes, interest rates, worker unions – they can PRETTY MUCH absorb all shocks. Just about the ONLY THING they can’t do is face DRACONIAN LAWS, but we’re not there yet…

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Judging by the number of hedge funds closing their doors, we believe this is a HUGE MISCONCEPTION on the part of the value-investing veterans, who equate this to a bubble.

In a world where $13tn is STUCK IN NEGATIVE-yielding bonds, there’s so much MORE UPSIDE for businesses, stocks, commodities, and just about anything!

I implore you to realize that the bubble is in GOVERNMENT DEBT and that the rest is PEANUTS compared to that.

Today, a presidential debate is happening and afterward, the world of investing will have MORE CLARITY on the identity of the leader of the free world in the next four years, but don’t think that STOCKS WILL crash or surge, solely due to that.

I’m positively convinced that a recovery is well IN MOTION and that the level of breakthrough innovation that’s occurring is UNDERESTIMATED.

Stay LONG; it’s the natural position to be in.

Animal spirits Beliefs conflicting numbers COUNTRIES COVID-19 Headline News highs Intelwars Jerome Powell Lessons markets mining stocks NASDAQ Opinions propaganda tools results Stock Market

EPIC SHORT SQUEEZE: NASDAQ Bears Go BELLY UP!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

The NASDAQ 100 has GONE DOWN from 12,420 to 10,833 points from September 2nd to September 23rd, a -12.8% CORRECTION! During that same period, the S&P 500 has HEADED SOUTH by -10% from 3,580 points to 3,226. This is AWFULLY SIMILAR to the period of September 2018.

Back then, the S&P 500 also hit an ALL-TIME HIGH (as it did just recently), went into a DEEP DIVE, flattened in October, and GOT BUTCHERED in December – a total decline of NEARLY 20%!

It was also a BRUTAL PERIOD for precious metals since the backdrop for this WHOLE EPISODE was Jerome Powell’s automatic rate hikes policy.

We have NO SUCH THING on the plate at the moment, so in my view, this was a correction WORTH BUYING and that’s what I did personally.

We believe that the September 2nd ALL-TIME HIGH reached just three weeks ago, will stand supreme for a FULL YEAR.

Markets, as we view them, are range-bound for the next 6-12 months…

There’s an ENORMOUS SHORT POSITION on the NASDAQ 100, which indicates that we’ve probably bottomed for this correction, but we also fail to conceptualize that ANIMAL SPIRITS will prevail.

Between Covid-19, the elections, Brexit, and the already pricy stock market, we’re calling for a SIDEWAYS TRADING pattern.

This is good for MINING STOCKS, because it shines a light, IN CONTRAST, on their growing earnings, thanks to higher commodity prices.

ONE MAJOR LESSON OF 2020

The power of blindly trusting in the INTEGRITY OF LIFE was made apparent to me this year.

Between the various propaganda tools and the hundreds of thousands of conflicting opinions and beliefs on what the right thing to do is, I found I was INCREASINGLY DISTANCING myself from the ceaseless flow of subjective information thrown at me.

More and more, I went inside the chambers of my mind to solidify the characteristics and values that I care to embody in daily living, no matter how OUTSIDERS were behaving. I looked to reach a sense of detachment from criticism.

A major lesson for me is to reach a LOOSENED state of mind towards any statement or action taken by a specific person, keeping a high level of tolerance towards all and a LIGHT VIBE of humor, even when an individual seeks to undermine me.

There are GROWING DISAGREEMENTS between countries and within the country itself; the only way to be effective about it is to LET IT SLIDE, without secretly wanting to have the opposing person AGREE with us or think we’re right. We must show the other side that our way of doing things is better, BY WAY of RESULTS, and not by preaching it to existence.

Optimism is the MAGIC FORMULA; if you can maintain your charm and A DEGREE OF PATIENCE, even when confronted by seemingly impossible conditions, you’ll have a HEALTHY OUTLOOK and I bet you’ll ENJOY LIFE, even in the midst of chaos!

Focus on optimism, patience, tolerance, poise, and humor, even in ADVERSE SITUATIONS; you’ll be most effective.

Business buying now buying the dips Cloud Company CRISIS deep recession demand election equities experts Fear Forecasting health facilities healthy hospitals Intelwars markets Opinions pandemic panic recovery Stock Market Vaccine

PANDEMIC PANIC: 2nd Wave Climax – FED CRIPPLED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

What NO ONE expects is a deep recession; there are a number of CONFLICTING THEORIES as to what the recovery will look like, but nothing about entering a recession. The consensus is that the pandemic is highly contagious, but not lethal; “with a vaccine coming and FEAR LEVELS subsiding, a recovery has begun,” is the general idea.

Where OPINIONS DIFFER is about its strength and inclusiveness of the recovery:

  1. Dichotomy – This is the thesis that claims BIG BUSINESS is eating up SMALL BUSINESS, so the recovery is HAPPENING, but it isn’t a healthy one. We’ll see GDP printing better stats with each PASSING QUARTER, but poverty is increasing, since BIG gets BIGGER and small gets TINY.
  2. Vaccine-Dependent – This camp believes that the PENT-UP DEMAND will be unleashed, once first-responders agree to take the vaccine. That stamp of approval will LEAD to CONFIDENCE worldwide; I want to show you how much DISTRUST THERE IS in the value stocks, which are companies that dominate their industries but are growing slowly and predictably, not fast and sporadically.

The market believes that each company that isn’t on the cloud is going out of business, which has led to a bubble:

You should consider THE FACTS about the pandemic before I move on to the THIRD CAMP, which are the investors who believe in the “V”-shaped or quick “U”-shaped recovery. They’re BUYING DIPS, as I am right now, following our FOUR WATCH LISTS: 1, 2, 3, and TECH.

The MOST IMPORTANT fact is that the PANDEMIC ITSELF isn’t lethal; the real crisis is overwhelmed hospitals and insufficient medical staff.

While no one likes to see CROWDED HEALTH FACILITIES, if those do return, this would be nowhere near the panic levels of March, when healthy people feared FOR THEIR LIVES.

Therefore, to expect markets to price in MARCH LOWS is a bit of a stretch of the imagination.

Instead, be agile in your thinking; there are REAL BARGAINS out there. Flexibility is needed, though. Don’t wait for sellers to hand you once-in-a-generation prices for the second time in six months.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, tight presidential races WEIGH ON PRICES, since it’s a huge unknown factor, especially when the parties are THIS POLARIZED on policy and public ideas.

It’s a tale of two Americas with two opposite agendas.

Where does gold come into the picture?

  1. Slow “V” or Fast “U” – Those who are FREE-MARKET oriented understand that businesses have muscled through the ROUGH PATCH and that capitalistic forces are driving innovation in this post-COVID-19 reality.

Wall Street and institutional money will be ENTERING EQUITIES on this severe dip and you ought to know that BUYING NOW is playing with fire, but I am certainly am.

Gold stocks have also reached their MOMENT OF TRUTH:

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

They MUST PENETRATE below the average of 2.5; that will signal a MULTI-YEAR TREND, which will confirm the bull market. The fact that Kinross and Newmont, among other large-cap miners, are RAISING DIVIDENDS, is a healthy sign of confidence from the most reputable management teams out there.

The September dip has allowed us to find companies with GREAT SUPPORT and I’m going to present new stock profiles, since, as the chart above shows, we’re ON THE CUSP of the REAL MOVE.

Gold might sell in this panic even further, but that’s not the REAL TREND; think ahead by 6-12 months and you’ll realize that inflation is accelerating!

Headline News Howard Marks Index fund Intelwars Jeff Gundlach macroeconomics market bias markets personal portfolio play it safe Ray Dalio Stocks wall street tycoons zero value

RAY DALIO IS DANGEROUS!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global.

Are there people on YouTube or other platforms that YOU’RE ADDICTED to and love every word coming out of their mouths? When I ask around, many tell me that Ray Dalio is a favorite of theirs, or Howard Marks or Jeff Gundlach.

The reason why so many LOVE THEM is because they confirm their bias on markets.

Who wants to listen to someone they HATE and have nothing in common with? I do!

If I see a successful person who has views opposite of mine, I cherish the relationship.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Ray Dalio, Howard Marks and Jeff Gundlach, among others, talk about MACROECONOMICS and I want to tell you that even if they get the macro right, it DOES NOTHING to their portfolios, as you can see.

Look at the performance of Bridgewater Associates for NEARLY A DECADE; they suck, point-blank.

Any institution, college endowment or pension fund that decided to PLAY IT SAFE and go with Mr. Dalio’s firm, had been MUCH BETTER OFF just buying the index fund.

Macroeconomics creates ZERO VALUE when picking stocks; it might help in understanding how to allocate funds among the various asset classes, but it never REPLACES STOCK PICKING skills.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Of course it’s fun to listen to a GURU who confirms your worldview, but there’s nothing QUITE LIKE results. The name of the game is results!

None of these WALL STREET TYCOONS saw Bitcoin like we did!

Portfolio Wealth Global covered Bitcoin below $500, a position that is up over 2,000%!

None of these WALL STREET TYCOONS bought stocks in the MARCH PANIC, but we did, IN DROVES, through the three watch lists reports we published to you!

None of these WALL STREET TYCOONS went big on silver or gold, but we did!

The name of the game is RESULTS.

Owning stocks is PRIORITY NO.1 for any person who is looking to grow wealthier, especially if they’re cheap. In March, they were JUST THAT, but these suits were too afraid to WALK THE TALK, while we issued THREE WATCHLISTS, full of goodies!

Homebuilders are telling us that millennials are entering the HOUSING MARKET; are you going to keep listening to the doomsday crowd, which keeps telling you that millennials don’t have two nickels to RUB TOGETHER, or will you look at facts, objectively?

I’ve been investing in real estate since 2010 and it’s been a GOOD INVESTMENT the whole time.

Don’t listen to the macroeconomic doom forecasts; see what’s happening ON THE GROUND.

Huge alerts coming from us!

BRUISED AND BATTERED: Will Stocks Fall ANOTHER -20%?

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global.

It’s been a WILD RIDE since the March lows; economies have opened-up, newcomers have entered stocks, central banks have bought BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in assets every single hour since March and markets have SOARED BACK!

Literally, it’s been one heck of a move and we’ve participated in the fun, but we have to remember that it was A PARTY, not something that could last more than a short while.

I call it a party since it looks like investors came to HAVE A GOOD TIME, not to own businesses. They’ve been using options, which WORK WELL in raging bull markets but are bad ideas the rest of the time (88% of options expire worthless).

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

When EVERYONE is this bullish and you’ve made short-term bets, you ought to consider booking gains. I’m not talking about long-term portfolio holdings, which you plan on owning for decades.

Central banks now own $25tn in assets; that’s a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT of equities and it puts a floor on prices, since they’re not quick to sell.

Markets have changed. Capitalism has changed and you MUST change with them.

I was watching the Formula 1 qualifying session yesterday and when these machines go 300KPH on the straight, then brake hard and go from eighth gear to second gear, inside the cockpit the G-FORCES applied on the body are 3-5 times one’s body weight. But as soon as the driver takes the corner, he IMMEDIATELY ACCELERATES again and goes on to the next piece of road.

That’s how the markets are behaving; it’s a bull market, but since it’s going SO FAST, when the brakes are applied, it SEEMS FURIOUS, but there’s acceleration on the other side of it.

Bonds are the real bubble, not stocks, generally speaking.

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

My point is that there are STILL many opportunities left in the market; so many companies are trading WELL BELOW their fair value, if their industries return to full activity, without Covid-19 restrictions.

From what we’re hearing about gold, MORE AND MORE wealthy individuals are realizing they just NEED SOME; it’s beginning to go mainstream and I love it.

Citigroup came out and raised their target to $2,500/ounce, so I think that we’re IN A GOOD SPOT!

There’s $6tn in CASH out there in Money Market Accounts and in private hands.

This is a world that is driven by EXCESSIVE LIQUIDITY and that isn’t changing. Consumer savings is still 17%, which is DOUBLE what it was in February, so there’s pent-up demand and both auto sales and real estate starts have been SUPRISINGLY-STRONG, so we see further recovery in the months to come.

Central banks have raised the risk, IRONICALLY SPEAKING, for both high inflation and deadly deflation. Because they REFUSE TO ALLOW any cycle to play out, they’ve created artificial conditions, which is the reason it’s so confusing to see some market veterans POUNDING THE TABLE that a bear market is coming, while others believes stocks are attractive.

These artificial conditions create wealth and income gaps, giant debt overhangs and social unrest.

Gold, TRIED AND TRUE, is the antidote.

2020 bear markets boom China Companies crash critcal thinking Cyber Security Dollar Dot-com bubble experts global debt Gross Domestic Product Headline News Intelwars markets NASDAQ price storm cloud Systems teaching tech disruption thinking U.s. treasuries understand value VIX

FORGET OLD BIDEN: Rookie Investors FAR MORE DELUSIONAL!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. 

We’re not in a Dot.Com bubble, but we’re certainly in a TECH DISRUPTION BOOM!

Companies are re-creating entire industries, and stocks that are just in their infancy are going up by hundreds and even thousands of percent, based on expected earnings and market penetration.

There are amazing opportunities in tech, which is why the NASDAQ is flying to the moon, but owning stakes in a well-diversified ETF of booming tech sectors, such as cloud-based services, payment systems and cyber security, ISN’T A REPLACEMENT for level-headed thinking about price and value.

It doesn’t matter how promising a company looks, there’s a RIGHT price and a WRONG price for everything. It boils down to risk tolerance and alternatives.

If the world of equities was restricted to just a few assets, then prices for them would be higher, but there are thousands of options out there, so BE PATIENT.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, the VIX index going up and the stock market DUMPING HARD is sending yields back down, as the chase for SAFE HAVENS is increasing.

In this world, markets move SUPER-FAST; the bear market, for example, only lasted 34 days. From top to bottom, the -35% MARCH CRASH took only 16 days. Everything happens more quickly than ever.

If one wants to TAKE ADVANTAGE of opportunities, one has to be ready at all times.

What 2020 is teaching me is how valuable of a skill it is to UNDERSTAND PEOPLE and to think about other people’s needs and hot buttons.

Companies and individuals that are experts at knowing WHAT’S IMPORTANT for others find it easier to do business and to increase sales, profits and margins.

One can’t live according to OLD ADAGES that aren’t true anymore, since he’ll miss out on what’s happening today.

The most DAMAGING THOUGHT that I see many industry leaders entertaining is that their sector will return to its pre-covid-19 status, but EVEN THOUGH this pandemic is mostly propaganda, misinformation and plenty of bullshit, the WORLD HAS CHANGED.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, we’re in a PRETTY AMAZING SPOT to enter the commodities sector!

China is CUTTING BACK on its exposure to U.S. Treasuries and that’s a form of dollar debasement.

As you know, debt continues to be a MASSIVE STORM CLOUD, with global debts reaching 230% the GDP, at the same time as equities are reaching that SAME AMOUNT.

The point is that we can’t IGNORE FACTS: the resource segment has a chance to blow out other industries in the years ahead.

Therefore, we have created an INCREDIBLE PORTFOLIO, consisting of four companies to start with. We’ll be strengthening it and offering more diversification with additional profiled stocks in the weeks to come.

This is the IDEAL PORTFOLIO, in our opinion. You can DOWNLOAD IT here and use it as an initial basis for further analysis on your part.

Buy China Cisco Companies Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Intelwars investors march panic markets Profits Sell Stocks Tech VIX

CAUGHT W/PANTS DOWN: Stocks Get DESTROYED!

This article was contributed by James Davis of Future Money Trends. 

The first few days of September were EXACTLY AS PREDICTED. We issued two separate alerts on the reasons why September will be horrible for the markets, and right out of the gate, investors got it HANDED TO THEM.

I don’t think it’s the end of it, either. The fact of the matter is that the VIX has gone up to its highest level in three months, which TELLS ME that profit-taking isn’t over.

Because of that, Future Money Trends is taking UNPRECEDENTED STEPS to add exceptional value to you:

  1. We’re creating our FIRST-EVER tech-focused watch list, which is a MUST-OWN sector. Some segments in tech are so disruptive that not having exposure to them is a CARDINAL SIN.

In order to achieve this, we’re masterminding with tech funds that we have a personal relationship with, and that’s going to be PUBLISHED in 7-10 days from now!

Our three WATCH LISTS we’ve published since the MARCH PANIC have returned high double-digits yields, so I want to stress which stocks are STILL BELOW our buy range. Here are the watch lists: ONE, TWO, and THREE.

As you can see, the gains have been JUST PERFECT. The number of companies that are still attractive to me has shrunk drastically, but there are still a few that are below the limit orders: Ciena, Cisco (close enough to its limit order), Spirit Aerosystems (not Spirit airlines), and there are four companies that are getting close: A.O. Smith (below $42), Resmed (below $160), Chubb (below $122), and TFI International (below $39 on NYSE).

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see, insiders see the WRITING ON THE WALL and know that at these prices, they’d be NAÏVE NOT to take advantage of their options and stock compensation.

A vulnerable tech sector opens the door for the natural resource industry TO SHINE!

Therefore, for the first time in our company’s history, we’re publishing a resource portfolio comprised of 4 companies: a MEGA-CAP, a seasoned miner, a new IPO, and a speculative high-flyer. This is our ideal combination of companies.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

With China continuing to decelerate its TREASURY HOLDINGS and the dollar’s weakness in 2020 at the same time as gold and silver are the BEST PERFORMERS, resource stocks have done amazingly well for us.

Therefore, we embarked upon our GREATEST PROJECT in company history and came up with four company profiles that comprise this portfolio, which will eventually grow to between 10 and 15 stocks.

Emergency Preparedness experts FAAMG stocks Forecasting indexing environment Intelwars markets markets overdue passive political showdown September stock picker trading range

PISSING THEIR PANTS: Markets Horrified – BUCKLE-UP!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

You need to exert a HIGH LEVEL of fortitude to come out on the other side of September with your LIMBS INTACT.

This will be a brutal month for the markets, both because the political showdown is HEATING UP and because we’re officially in pullback territory, which without warning could turn into a FULL-BLOWN correction – investors will be soiling themselves after five months of PURE PROFITS.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

History is definitely telling us that we’ve entered a TRADING RANGE and that indices might CHURN FOR MONTHS, before continuing to go up; it’s a STOCK PICKER heaven, not a passive indexing environment, so be ready FOR THAT REALITY.

As you can see, the S&P 500 HAS CONCLUDED its lengthiest run of new all-time highs in 22 years, so that’s another warning sign that things are about to escalate.

It’s not only that – I’ve assembled a number of KEY METRICS that are irrefutable; the markets are so OVERDUE for a rest!

Here they are: Each and every 60-minute session, central banks have purchased BILLIONS in assets with new fictitious currency units since March. Secondly, bonds are SO MUCH more expensive than commodities that their ratio has hit a ONE HUNDRED-YEAR high (commodities are cheap)!

Thirdly, the FAAMG stocks are trading WILDLY ABOVE their 200dma, which worries me.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The one RIGHT CALL to make this year was to PANIC BUY in March, instead of getting the tremors with the rest of the world. Never in my trading career has the CONTRARIAN CALL been so evident!

Therefore, in the midst of chaos, we published WATCH LIST 1. Since it went online, here are the results: American Express ($78 to $105, a 34.6% return), V.F. Corporation ($51 to $68, a 33.3% return), UGI Corporation ($26 to $34, a 30.7% return), Stanley, Black & Decker ($101 to $160, a 58.4% return) and Travelers ($97 to $116, a 19.6% return).

We DIDN’T STOP there and in April, foreseeing A ROUND 2 sell-off, we issued WATCH LIST 2; here are the results since that report came out: Sysco ($51 to $60, a 17.6% return), Cincinnati Financial ($61 to $81, a 32.7% return) and Axis Capital ($39 to $49, a 25.6% return).

Just a couple of weeks ago, we PUBLISHED OUR LATEST one, which is WATCH LIST 3.

Already, Hyatt Hotels (featured in it) is up 30.4%!

Since stocks have RALLIED RELENTLESSLY, most of the companies are well above their bargain-priced noted limit orders.

The two that are MOST ATTRACTIVE and deserve further research on your part right now are Ciena (CIEN), which announced earnings and dropped 27% in a day (I personally took a position this week), and Spirit AeroSystems (SPR), which is a bet on the recovery in the airline business. I’m also a shareholder of it.

OUR BIGGEST UNDERTAKING EVER:
ULTIMATE RESOURCE PORTFOLIO!

Lastly and MOST IMPORTANTLY, we’ve finished a 4-week long company-wide project, which we tasked ourselves with.

We wanted to be SUPER-READY for when gold surpasses its August 5th all-time high and silver RECHARGES and goes past $30/ounce, so we created the ULTIMATE risk-adjusted portfolio of four companies, initially, with the goal to add 6-8 more companies to it in the COMING WEEKS and months!

Use it as a point of reference to CONDUCT INDEPENDENT due diligence. Access it HERE!

In 2020, we’ve had enormous winners in the resource sector with previously profiled companies; here’s to the streak CONTINUING FOR US ALL!

TIME’S UP: THIS CRAP AIN’T CHEAP!

This article was contributed by James Davis of Future Money Trends. 

This might be the MOST IMPORTANT letter I’ve published since this pandemic GOT STARTED.

In essence, the global markets are now CLEARLY DIVIDED between FOUR DISTINCT sectors:

  1. FAAMG stocks: These are the MEGA-GIANTS and they’re so much more valuable than the other companies that they’re not even in the SAME UNIVERSE. For example, Apple Inc. is already worth over $2T, with a P/E ratio of 37, com is worth $1.7T, and Microsoft is worth $1.7T as well, with a P/E ratio of 37, and Facebook and Google are also trading at these valuations.

These companies are FAR FROM CHEAP but they’re certainly not in a bubble when considering the alternatives.

  1. Robinhood Platform Stocks: This is where a RAGING BUBBLE is going on, which will END BADLY in very SHORT ORDER.

The darlings of this trading platform don’t have COMMON SENSE and they hold stocks for days, perhaps weeks, just enough so that someone else will pay more for them, but the game of MUSICAL CHAIRS will end and it won’t be ANY FUN.

I expect to see companies that go under, stocks that crash by 30%-50%, and plenty of pain since this bubble depends on credit and stimulus and it does not represent OR MIRROR REALITY.

  1. General Equities: Many companies are trading at FAIR VALUATIONS and can be looked at in the context of long-term investments.

We’ve published THREE WATCH LISTS and there are a select few that trade below their LIMIT ORDERS right now.

The fourth economy is the REAL ECONOMY; here, credit and leverage do not play a POSITIVE ROLE. Here, honest and hard-working people deal with what’s available and get NO AID and no blanketed bailouts.

These people, the small business owners, and Main Street enterprises that are the LIFEBLOOD of the economy since they deal in REALITY, not in credit, are FALLING BEHIND.

The system is not directly rigged AGAINST THEM, but it ends up being to their detriment at the end of the day.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

This STRUCTURAL PROBLEM is displayed in the following chart, which shows that credit, translated into HIGH ASSET PRICES, is rising faster than GDP does, so much so that we are in uncharted waters on this front.

It introduces many challenges to the life of the average person, who isn’t IMMEDIATELY DRAWN into the world of credit since they are attracted to what they can access, which is the REAL ECONOMY.

The few who are either from the right background or understood the system early on go into the world of credit, but the majority GET SUCKED INTO a frozen capsule of time, in which real wages do nothing for THREE DECADES.

Misuse of credit has destroyed the real economy and has created many terrifying and unintended consequences.

The people that benefit from this are not the majority, so frustration BOILS INSIDE until it finds an outlet.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

We have two economies, but the DISCONNECTION IS TEMPORARY.

When gravity takes hold of markets, it’s the Robinhood darlings that go down first.

At that point, don’t be surprised to see A WAVE OF DEFAULTS.

Big tech create currency currency debasement experts Federal Reserve Fiat Forecasting free Gold Headline News Income Intelwars markets Media monetary system NASDAQ plandemic Precious Metals Rally Scam Silver Stocks

SUDDENLY SEIZED-UP: Gold Presumed DEAD!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

Gold stocks might have peaked for the COMING WEEKS. On August 5th, we may have SEEN THE TOP for the time being.

Just how amazing was the RALLY, which started on March 18th?

  1. The GDX index, which is comprised of the world’s BIGGEST AND most recognized gold and silver miners, has gone from $19 to $44.50, a 134% return in LESS THAN five months.

Year-to-date, the GDX index is up 37%, compared with the NASDAQ 100, which is up only 33%!

With all the noise that the media is making about tech being the GREATEST PLAY ever, a simple low-fee position with GDX has beaten all of these cloud-servicing, Artificial Intelligence and payment processing wonder kids of the cyber world.

  1. The GDXJ index looks to have ALSO TOPPED, and is up 34.9% in 2020, but HOLD YOUR HORSES; that’s 400% more than the average S&P 500 annual return, so I assume you’re not feeling TOO BAD about that!

Still, in a mature BULL MARKET, the GDXJ would handily beat the GDX, so the fact that it isn’t is indicative of FURTHER UPSIDE POTENTIAL.

The way American finance works, with the FEDERAL RESERVE having so much authority to CREATE CURRENCY, the markets have ceased to be “free.”

The big problem with the rich getting richer isn’t that the poor are FRUSTRATED, since entrepreneurs COULD INSPIRE the masses to follow them; the problem is that the wealthy aren’t doing anything that’s REPEATABLE or leaves a trail of guidelines, since all they’re doing is capitalizing on their UNIQUE ACCESS to cheap credit.

When the poor don’t HAVE A PRAYER to join the rich, elevating the collective wealth of the nation, something IS WRONG!

If someone is doing ALL HE CAN and still gets nowhere, we have a structural failure.

For now, this entire CREDIT ORGY is fueling a great party, but what the participants don’t know is that once the music stops, they’ll be asked to pay for this shindig and it WON’T COME CHEAP!

A country like the USA can create many trillions in currency to offset the revenues and the income lost by the pandemic, but it can’t put the genie back in the bottle; this is CURRENCY DEBASEMENT.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The credit expands and generates wealth for equity holders, while the average person GOES DOWN!

No country can thrive as a bastion of capitalism when its citizens have no part in the FUN OF PROFITS, but only toil from dusk ‘til dawn to make ENDS MEET.

I own gold, silver and other safe havens for this reason.

THINGS ARE NEARING a breaking point; it’s just the way it is, unfortunately!

PULVERIZED: Cash Malfunctioned – BRACE FOR IMPACT!

This article was contributed by James Davis of Future Money Trends. 

Governments and central banks are making A JOKE out of cash. Most people are living paycheck to paycheck or, AT BEST, have savings equal to 90–180 days of expenses, so to them, CASH IS KING because they have none, but if you’re an investor, cash IS DEAD.

Governments and central banks are SCREAMING AT the markets to steer clear of cash; the entire system is designed to signal that fiat currencies are not PURCHASING POWER preservers, but simply government-mandated mediums of exchange.

Nothing shows the NEGATIVE IMPACT of the debt bubble on the real economy more than the chart of Berkshire Hathaway’s stock price compared to gold’s spot price.

Berkshire Hathaway owns insurance, railroads, banks, low-tech, and furniture, among other holdings and it has nothing to do WITH GROWTH companies, save for owning a large stake in Apple Inc., but that hardly counts since it began positioning in it just a couple of years ago.

Main Street, the real economy, has BEEN PULVERIZED as well by the slashing of interest rates and the fueling of the bubble economy.

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

Buffett is operating UNDER THE ASSUMPTION that current conditions can’t last forever, which they can’t, but they can LAST FOR DECADES, and they are. No one could have imagined interest rates staying so low for so long.

Just 12 years ago, had anyone gone ON RECORD laying out how the global economy would be in 2020, not ONE IN A MILLION would have been able to come even remotely close to envisioning this scenario.

This is why beating the S&P 500 is SO DIFFICULT.

Most investors just can’t BRING THEMSELVES to believe that owning equities through thick and thin works, but reality keeps proving otherwise.

Emotional reactions to PRESENT EVENTS are so strong that panic and greed fight each other, and it’s not an EASY BATTLE to win.

This is why I “live” markets; I hold onto no particular opinions if they’re outdated, and my biggest fear is that I don’t breathe the SAME AIR the markets do. My message is that one must be constantly evolving in order to STAY ENGAGED.

Who could PREDICT IN ADVANCE that governments would be able to print trillions in new currency units without causing COMPLETE DISTRUST in the system?

Predicting is impossible, while quickly reacting to realities is ARTWORK.

The powers that be have put so much money in the hands of the average person that the recession was VERY QUICK and the whole debate now surrounds what it will do next. If the stimulus packages keep coming then we’ll have one outcome, while if the government sets the THROTTLE ON IDLE, the next year will be hard to stomach.

Predicting is impossible, while REACTING QUICKLY is the science of proper diversification.

 

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you can see above, there’s AN ENORMOUS trend in play, with tech being the GREAT BENEFACTOR of the past decade in terms of market returns.

Can the winds of change reverse this and bring a decade of VALUE INVESTING back when P/E ratios matter?

There’s no way of knowing, but what is clear is that stocks, as represented by the S&P 500, are mostly down in 2020, save for the BIG FIVE.

This is a STOCK PICKER’S heaven, so we issued our THIRD WATCH LIST.

On top of that, we’ve found an incredible opportunity in a sector that has MASSIVE UPSIDE and can serve as a diversifier, while gold remains our top focus.

We’ll be PUBLISHING CRITICAL DATA on it this week, so stay tuned!

Say what you want about Warren Buffett, but for a man worth $90bn, after donating $37bn worth of Berkshire Hathaway stock in his life, Buffett is VERY HUMBLE. He spends his time playing incognito card games online (usually Bridge) and lives in the same house as when he was just starting out.

Many hate him, while others adore him, but one thing everyone agrees on is that Buffett doesn’t appreciate the advantages of gold. Buffett admits that he doesn’t know a whole lot about technology, a WEAK SPOT, which has caused him to forego investing in Microsoft for the past 30 years, even though Bill Gates is a very close friend of his!

Buffett realized that his weaknesses could be OVERRIDEN if he hired other money managers to allocate the $130bn that Berkshire has at its disposal. One of these two managers purchased about $600M in Barrick Gold shares in June.

When the 13F filings were disclosed last week, this brought shockwaves, since Buffett isn’t crazy about the unpredictability of commodities and their price fluctuations.

It also shows you, though, that Buffett has let go of his need to MANAGE EVERYTHING that Berkshire owns, which is a great character trait.

It’s undeniable that DEFICITS MATTER.

Every country is different; for some, deficits can be enormous, since their GDP is huge as well, but all economies have an EXPIRATION DATE.

America is reaching its own breaking point and now everyday citizens will begin to experience THE DOWNSIDE of this, as the dollar will continue to LOSE SUPREMACY, while “on-shoring” will actually bring manufacturing to the states, resulting in a supply chain renaissance.

Buffett has significant ownership positions in American banks, but those HAVE PROVEN to be duds.

Personally, my instincts say that 12 months from now gold will trade at about $2,200, but that there will also be a COOLING-OFF period between now and then for the spot price.

What I’m going to say might sound CONTROVERSIAL, but stick with me: Since the spot price will be flat, the INVESTMENT ACTION will swing to the mining shares, which will be reporting record earnings!

Buffett, looks like this time you DID NOT leave at the bottom, like with the airlines, but entered at the right time… congrats to Warren!

BUFFETT GOT GOLD: Now I’ve SEEN IT ALL!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends

Warren Buffett doesn’t see the point of holding physical gold. He acknowledges that when there’s GENERAL FEAR out there, investors gravitate towards it BRIEFLY before realizing that the world isn’t ending, thus dumping their holdings and reentering stocks, real estate or private equity. His bottom-line message is that stocks DO BETTER than gold.

We totally agree with the Oracle of Omaha. In fact, in Berkshire’s annual meeting, which I was supposed to attend, my goal was to ask both Warren and Charlie why they’re making a COLOSSAL MISTAKE of comparing gold with stocks in the FIRST PLACE.

Berkshire Hathaway now has about $130bn in cash and short-term bonds. My point is that if he’d CHOSEN TO store the shareholders’ purchasing power for future acquisitions in gold, the company would be GREATLY BETTER OFF.

Buffett is a numbers guy, so it wouldn’t take more than two seconds for him to understand that he has A BLIND SPOT when it comes to gold.

Central banks are the FORCE TO RECKON WITH in today’s world. The confidence that the actions they’ve taken have inspired has been FAR GREATER than anyone could expect.

It seems that the notion that the VERY FABRIC of the financial system could fall apart isn’t a piece of the equation that more than a select few are entertaining AT THE MOMENT.

For us, the Berkshire position in Barrick Gold, worth $564M, is a TESTAMENT of the strength of the GOLD MINING INDUSTRY.

Buffett buys value and he buys FUTURE CASH FLOW estimates. He, obviously, believes that mining gold is good business – that’s a BIG STATEMENT. In the big picture, it means that the fund managers who run Berkshire’s investment portfolio have detected a multi-year trend for the precious metal.

This serves as a STAMP OF APPROVAL for so many others to get into the game.

Buffett’s 1998 purchase of silver, along with Bill Gates’, marked the lows for silver. They understand value, and this action, like their late 1990s expedition into silver, SPEAKS VOLUMES.

Next, I want to focus on 10-year Treasury notes’ real rates because according to the correlation with China’s Credit Impulse, they will be higher in the future, being that they lag by a FULL YEAR!

Not this time; the U.S. Treasury is issuing RECORD AMOUNTS of debt at the same time as the Federal Reserve is monetizing the bonds.

Inflationary pressures are building, but rates won’t rise by much from here.

I’m not certain if the trend of stocks beating gold is over, as the chart above implies, but I know that the trend of MINING STOCKS going higher from here is certainly real because the greatest investor of all time has CHANGED HIS VIEW and has begun to see what we see: MONEY-PRINTING doesn’t happen in a vacuum.

The one thing that’s unique about the COVID-19 CRISIS is that it hasn’t seemed to bring countries together. It hasn’t seemed to help in alleviating differences. If anything, IT EXPOSED the root problems of many countries.

COVID-19 is also the first crisis in which CREDIT EXPANDED, not contracted.

There are many aspects to think about and consider going forward, but one issue that I find EXTREMELY TROUBLING is that no major country has stopped and said that DEBT IS THE PLAGUE – it’s the real disease.

If you want yet another reason to hold gold, know that there isn’t one politician in the world that has REAL POWER and is challenging the STATUS QUO of printing new debt; there are no guards at the front gate!

GOLD OPENS ARMS: WELCOME HOME WARREN BUFFETT!

This article was originally published by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

Buffett is famous for saying that he missed out on Amazon, Google, Facebook, Netflix, and others because “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” but it seems that this opportunity IS JUST TOO GOOD even for old dogs to stand idly by and watch.

Gold has had a CRAZY WEEK, with wild swings, but the big picture remains as ROSY AS EVER. Even after falling by close to 4.6% in the past week, and CLOSING BELOW $2,000/ounce, and even after both gold and silver had their WORST DAY in years this week (silver went down by 13.5%!), the technical analysis is VERY CLEAR: the bull market LIVES ON!

The 50-DMA is above the 200-DMA and the spot price is above both of those. It is a beautiful sight to see – a GLORIOUS WORK OF ART.

While gold, which normally trades inversely to stocks, is RUNNING HARD, the S&P 500 just underwent its best 100-day STRETCH IN HISTORY.

Truly, if one WASN’T SHAKEN OUT in March, and especially if he had THE STAMINA to go long in the MOST OBVIOUS time in human history when buyers were considered to be MAD LUNATICS, one had unreal returns.

So, what now?

  1. People that we would not HAVE DREAMED would be interested in gold, let alone mining it, are now buying into the sector. Berkshire’s 13F filings show a $564mn position in Barrick Gold, the powerhouse of the industry. Others will FOLLOW SUIT!
  2. Inflationary expectations ARE RISING FAST, but the central banks have stated that they’re not even CONSIDERING raising rates. They’re not even considering if they should consider it.

Not since 1991 has there been SUCH A SPIKE in inflationary expectations.

In the past 100 days, the S&P 500 is up just over 50%. In 2009, it was 45%, when in July the market finished a stunning recovery.

The STARK CONTRAST, though, is that the market wasn’t trading at all-time highs back then.

Markets move SO FAST these days that they price in events that are 2-3 years INTO THE FUTURE – they’ll continue to do so. Prices reflect 2022 and even 2023, at this point.

We’re not in the business of crystal balls; our objective is to look at the world around us and FIND OPPORTUNITIES, not guess where they’ll be next.

If what President Trump is planning GOES THROUGH, an additional $3,400 PPP injection is coming to each family of four.

It’s a tremendous stimulus measure with political ramifications. Sending money to families so close to the elections is a tactic that is meant to MAKE ONE feel indebted and obligated to the person who sent it.

With eighty days to go until the ballots, the President will do WHATEVER HE CAN to make sure his powers help him tilt the odds in his favor.

Prepare for another incredible week!

Corporate America Economy experts Federal Reserve Forecasting global takeover Intelwars markets Precious Metals rigged Silver Stocks weaker dollar

R-RATED: DON’T LOOK AT THIS!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. 

In 2008, I went on a rafting trip on Colorado’s Green River. It was exhilarating and combined calm waters with LEVEL-4 rapids. We spent a total of four days on the river bank where guides would prepare our meals. When we approached these LEVEL-4 rapids, the guides would dock the rafts and walk to a nearby scoping point, in order to get a visual and to discuss how to row through the TREACHEROUS WATERS.

On one such occasion, my brother and I rowed AS HARD AS we could, since guides told us to pass a giant boulder from the right, but as hard as we tried, the current pulled us left. We escaped unharmed, fortunately, but it was a CLOSE CALL.

One of the guides, though, got stuck in a swirl; for over a minute, he fought the SUCTION MOTION of the waters, while the rest of the guides were YELLING AT HIM, motivating him to push his hardest. He escaped but was traumatized by the ordeal.

As you can see, the Federal Reserve saw the swirl that came at us in March this year, and it offered a line, sent a rescue boat and all but tried to whisk us out of danger, by simply ensuring stocks can’t GO DOWN!

What comes next has a lot to do with the chart below. As you can see, the dollar index MOVES IN TANDEM with the DEFICIT/GDP ratio.

When the economy is slower and accumulates more debt than the growth of Corporate America can provide for, the dollar weakens.

We’re entering exactly that kind of period. The markets are at all-time highs, but that doesn’t really reflect GDP growth; it can’t, since unemployment is SO HIGH.

Silver’s ONE-DAY puke, which happened this week, is not indicative of any change in the landscape, in our view.

In fact, it only serves to show how much correlation there is between the dollar and silver.

Therefore, when you see this happening again, remember that big picture, which is that the dollar is in a BEAR MARKET.

EXPLOIT WEAKNESS: Silver Falling – BUY, BUY, BUY!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends.

Intuitively, you understand it. Your gut is telling you that silver HAS HAD a great run. You’re just looking for ANY CONFIRMATION that this rally might last JUST A BIT LONGER so you don’t miss out on gains. You’re looking at data and you understand HOW HISTORIC the month of July and the first week of August trading have been, but YOU STILL WANT MORE.

July has been UNPRECEDENTED. We may never see anything QUITE LIKE IT.

Silver might give back some of these gains, but I’m NOT SELLING ANY yet. As remarkable as July and August have been, silver DOESN’T STOP these types of bull markets in this fashion – nothing is over yet.

Take a look:

When silver moves, IT REALLY MOVES, and we’re in one of those time vortexes where it is making headway in warped speed – it can still DOUBLE from here.

Before it does, though, it can consolidate until the end the year between the $25 and $30 range, barring any PRESIDENTIAL UPSET in November or an unanticipated COVID-19 panic.

After that, it will gain MORE STEAM and will push upwards with SHEER FORCE towards $45/ounce. It’s QUITE IMPOSSIBLE to time these since market madness is illogical. In my career, I’ve made FAR MORE MONEY by simply getting the BIG PICTURE right, sitting on MY ASS and letting the cycle play out than by trying to be the genius that times the day-to-day activity.

Look at the chart of silver above, which is 20 years long and dates back to the year 2000. You’ll notice that when silver had its FIRST BIG MOVE in 2003, it gained 170% in just short of three years.

The price doubled between 2009 and 2011 and then rose by 60% and then by another 60%, TOTALING a move from $9/ounce to $49 in LESS THAN TWO YEARS – when it moves, IT REALLY MOVES.

About a week ago, I said that when the GOLD/SILVER ratio closes in on its December 2015 level of 65:1, we’ll have confirmation that the precious metal bull market HAS MATURED.

We’re not there yet, and it looks like CROSSING IT will be a struggle, as it should be.

In war, some battles are more important than others. Some overlooking hills give the enemy such AN ADVANTAGE that we’ll DO ANYTHING to conquer them. Some snipers are so well-hidden and they cause so much damage that a whole platoon is sent to take down JUST ONE PERSON.

The lesson here is that the more time it takes to CHEW THROUGH all the sellers that will appear in the coming weeks and months, the sweeter the victory will be WHEN THEY SURRENDER.

Therefore, I say it UNEQUIVOCALLY: I’m not selling my mining shares or physical metals since ANY EFFORT and every bit of energy spent in attempting to time this trade is A WASTE when my focus should be on how to earn more money in my businesses, so I can put it towards BUYING the DIPS.

If you’re BETTING HEAVILY on higher precious metal prices, this is the one chart that matters. If you FLIP IT upside down, it will look exactly like the gold chart.
