John Rubino – We’re Obsessing Over Our Obsession

from Financial Survival Network

According to John Rubino, somewhere out there is an event or major trend change that will take gold from 1300 to 10000. Then the COT (commitment of traders report) won’t matter. You don’t want to go all in on a minor technical move that causes you to miss the big move. If you miss it you’ll feel stupid for the rest of your life. That’s why it’s so important to retain your physical holdings as an insurance policy for the inevitable move.

Daniel Greenfield – Spying on the Election

from Financial Survival Network

Daniel Greenfield returns… During the election in 2015 Hillary Clinton wanted some insurance and so did Peter Strzok. The senior FBI figure, who had participated in the Hillary e-mail investigation, interviewed Flynn and had been part of Team Mueller, wasn’t looking to State Farm for his insurance needs. Chatting with his mistress, an FBI lawyer who worked for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Strzok worried that Trump might win. “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” he wrote. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.” And thus the scheme was hatched. It went on after the election and its purpose was to undermine President Trump’s presidency.

Howard Davidowitz – Who the Hell Needs a Mall

from Financial Survival Network

Howard Davidowitz says that the economy is starting to blaze. Christmas retail sales were way up, but that increase came from online, not same stores. Home oriented retailers and value based retailers are expanding rapidly. Discounters are crushing it. But there’s a residue of many employees who will be phased out by automation. And 10’s of thousands of stores that will be shuttered. The industry restructuring will proceed ahead for the next decade. We’ll be left with just a portion of the labor market left in retailing. Retraining will only go so far. This is just the beginning. Household names will disappear. There will be a mass redeployment away from retailing and into more profitable and productive sectors of the economy.

The Weekly Perspective with David Morgan for January 14th, 2018

from The Morgan Report

David Morgan‘s weekly perspective for January 14th, 2018…

Today’s monetary system is based upon a lie. The lie is that you can get something for nothing, or perhaps more simply stated, wealth can be printed. History has shown throughout 5000 years that whenever a country has tried to maintain this illusion (lie), failure has been the result. You Can Continue To Grow Your Wealth Regardless Of The Changing Winds Of Politics, The Economy And The Financial Markets. Let me show you how…

Invest in Your Podcast and Yourself (#26)

from Viral Podcasting

Successful podcasting requires a number of values and skills. The biggest investment you will make is your time, assuming that you really want to make a go of this. Your time is your most valuable commodity. We all have limited amounts and therefore any time we undertake a project, we are making the ultimate investment. But your time alone is not enough. Spend a few hundred dollars and get decent equipment. A mixer, a quality microphone, a microphone boom arm and shock absorber at a minimum. Invest in your work space. Make sure you have a very comfortable chair, adequate work area and a pleasant environment that will help you give the best you have. These resources won’t make you a success, there are other factors involved. Rather, they will help you to become the best you can, which is what successful podcasting is all about.

from Financial Survival Network

Al Caicedo is urging caution in investing for the year ahead. We just came off an incredible year with the DOW gaining 25%. 2018 could be a more challenging environment.

Nick Santiago – Look to the Past to See the Future

from Financial Survival Network

Nick Santiago has had a remarkable 11 year run. He called the peak of the stock market in October 11, 2007, to the day. He wasn’t quite so prescient on calling the start of the current bull market, he was five days off. But as Yogi Berra said, prediction is very difficult, especially when you’re dealing with the future. Nick’s had an amazing run and some of his calls for the coming year might surprise you. But he believes the next crash is still a ways off, so you can rest easy–at least for now.

Chris Vermeulen – Where are Cycles for 2018 Heading?

from Financial Survival Network

Chris Vermeulen is at heart a cycle guy. He sees a rally coming in the US Dollar for the next couple of months, along with a pause in precious metals. He believes that the second half will be the time that gold, etc., breaks out. Volatility is increasing in equities and commodities. Bigger up days and bigger down days until the momentum reverses in the various markets. We’re coming to an end in the stock bull market, but they’re still extremely strong. Stocks could have reversed in 2016, however, Trump literally saved the market from a major decline. Trumphoria is still alive and well. There’s just no fear in the market. Such stages could extend much further than anyone believes possible. Chris believes the Utility Sector is oversold and out of favor right now. They could be a very good buy.

Chris Martenson – The Untold Oil Story

from Financial Survival Network

Chris Martenson joined us for another update…

in 2017 new oil discoveries hit an all time low. Prices are up over $60 the barrel and they could go a lot higher. Chris believes that there’s just not enough in the pipeline to satisfy world demand. Same with many other things that society demands. There are limits to our ability to produce in many areas. Challenges are ahead and if there’s another crash, all bets are off.

Silver: Once and Future Money

by James Rickards
Daily Reckoning

The Roman Republic and the later Roman Empire had gold coins called the aureus and solidus, but they also minted a popular silver coin called the denarius. One denarius was the daily wage for unskilled labor and Roman soldiers.

Of course, in the late Empire, the aureus, solidus and denarius were all debased by mixing the gold and silver with base metals. The decline of the Roman Empire went hand in hand with the decline of sound money.

In the early ninth century AD, Charlemagne greatly expanded silver coinage to compensate for a shortage of gold. This was successful in stimulating the economy of the predecessor of the Holy Roman Empire. In a sense, Charlemagne was the inventor of quantitative easing over 1,000 years ago. Silver was his preferred form of money.

Why the GOP’s Anti-Immigration Folly is Fiscally Fatal (Part 1)

by David Stockman
David Stockman’s Contra Corner

The actuarial deficit of Social Security/Medicare (OASDHI) is in the range of $55 trillion on a NPV basis and even in the world of big numbers that’s downright daunting. Therefore we have long felt—and not entirely facetiously—–that the only way to avoid fiscal catastrophe is to annex Mexico.

After all, the average age of its 128 millions citizens is just 26 years, meaning that there are lots of Tax Mules south of the border to bailout America’s rapidly aging wave of Baby Boomers. And there is truly no way to describe the latter except to call it a demographic tsunami: The 50 million Americans 65 and older today will become 80 million by 2035 and eventually 105 million.

So not withstanding the impracticality of annexing Mexico, here begins a tale of labor force demographics, immigration and the fiscal Ponzi embedded in the social insurance system (Medicare and Social Security).

Chinese Physical Gold Investment Demand Surges While Americans Pile Into Stock & Crypto Bubbles

by Steve St. Angelo
SRSRocco Report

Chinese demand for physical gold investment surged in the first three-quarters of 2017 while Americans ditched the shiny yellow metal for increased bets in the crypto mania and stock market bubble market. Even though China’s Hang Seng Stock Market outperformed the Dow Jones Index last year, Chinese citizens purchased the most gold bar and coin products Q1-Q3 2017 since the same period in 2013, when they took advantage of huge gold market price selloff.

According to the World Gold Council, Chinese gold bar and coin demand increased to 233 metric tons (mt) in the first three-quarters of 2017 compared to 162 mt in the same period last year. Furthermore, if we include Indian gold bar and coin demand, China and India consumed nearly half of the world’s total:

Drastic Pension Cuts Will Hit California, Kentucky, Other States

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
MishTalk

The CA Supreme Court will rule on pension cuts. Curiously, the court’s ruling will be irrelevant in case of bankruptcy.

Please consider California’s Brown Raises Prospect Of Pension Cuts In Downturn.

California Governor Jerry Brown said legal rulings may clear the way for making cuts to public pension benefits, which would go against long-standing assumptions and potentially provide financial relief to the state and its local governments.

Brown said he has a “hunch” the courts would “modify” the so-called California rule, which holds that benefits promised to public employees can’t be rolled back. The state’s Supreme Court is set to hear a case in which lower courts ruled that reductions to pensions are permissible if the payments remain “reasonable” for workers.

80% of All Bitcoins Have Already Been Mined…

from Zero Hedge

Almost exactly 9 years after the first were ‘mined’, January 13th marked an important milestone for cryptocurrencies. 16.8 million bitcoins (BTC), or 80 percent of the entire Bitcoin supply, have now been mined.

[…] As CoinTelegraph reports, this means only 4.2 million bitcoins, or 20 percent, are left to mine until Bitcoin’s 21 million supply cap is reached.

[…] BTC contains the 21 mln cap built into its protocol by Satoshi Nakamoto, first mentioned in their 2008 White Paper, as a way to introduce digital scarcity to cryptocurrency. With such a cap in place, the more bitcoins are mined, the more scarcity is produced on the market.

Markets Risk a ‘Brutal’ Fall as They Ignore the Fed’s Latest Warning Shot

Fed’s Dudley ‘is worried that markets will fall in line too late,’ says Wolf Street’s Wolf Richter

by Victor Reklaitis
Market Watch

Markets find themselves in a tough spot, according to the Wolf Street financial blog’s Wolf Richter.

Richter is focused on a warning shot fired late Thursday by the New York Federal Reserve’s William Dudley.

The salvo from Dudley came in the same week that the inflation-obsessed Fed got a fresh reading on consumer prices.

Dudley said the U.S. central bank may have to “press harder on the brakes” at some point over the next few years, increasing the risk of a hard landing for the economy.

“It was a shot before the bow — one of many — for the markets to start paying attention to the Fed,” writes Richter, whose take served as a call of the day for our Need to Know column on Friday.
