Eric Hadik – 2018: A Great Year for Gold

from Financial Survival Network

We’ve been interviewing Eric Hadik joined us to give his views on market action. Gold followed according to expectations, rallying the end of the year and into February. He’s expecting it to go lower heading into March and then reassert the bullish trend through November. Oil went higher and then corrected slightly, probably in anticipation of higher prices later in the year. The dollar had a bounce and is likely to head lower later in the year. And stock markets are showing much more volatility and getting ready lower prices. 2950-2980 in the Stoxx 50 index is the important level to watch. They could be heading to their 2016 lows, which would trigger some liquidation in markets around the globe. Finally, when Bitcoin saw its final surge into December it was indicator of things to come in other markets. As a result gold saw a surge from anti-dollar money flowing into it. It’s got a few more months to go before it goes into the next uptrend.

Steve St. Angelo – It’s All About Energy

from Financial Survival Network

We’re doomed! So says our good friend Steve St. Angelo. The return on energy invested (eroi) is going down to crisis levels. This will result in a future crisis and this is what assures the ultimate value of gold and silver. That’s why there’s so much debt holding up the edifice of the economy. Once the debt goes, everything goes with it.

David Horowitz – Where’s the Racism?

from Financial Survival Network

Noted author and activist David Horowitz joined us to talk about the real racism in America today. As a practical matter, institutionalized racism against African-Americans is all but gone. But racism against whites is all the rage and perfectly acceptable. David believes that President Trump is a beacon of light on the subject. He doesn’t kow-tow to political correctness and calls it the way he sees, such as when he called Liddle Adam Schiff a liar. David believes that we all need to speak out now before it’s too late.

Jeffrey R. Schulte – The Trend is Your Friend

from Financial Survival Network

Jeffrey R. Schulte has spent over 30 years as a financial consultant for high net worth clients. The market has been going up and was heading towards overvaluation, but its recent pullback made things a bit more fairly valued. While this bull is getting long of tooth, that doesn’t mean it can’t continue to increase and reach new heights. Nobody knows what the future economy is going to look like next week, let alone next month next year. So what’s an investor to do? Jeff says it all depends upon your timeframe. If you can stay in for 5 years or more, you have a 75% chance of recovering from any decline. Less time than that and you’re taking a big risk. So let’s see what happens next.

Charles Nenner – Beware of Statistics

from Financial Survival Network

Unemployment at all time lows, consumer confidence at all time highs, what could possibly go wrong, go wrong, go wrong? Well according to Charles Nenner, a lot. These are actually contrary indicators that show the economy is close to a peak. If he’s right, and there’s every reason to believe he is, then there’s rough sledding ahead. We may be getting close to a recession. He sees the dollar heading higher shortly, the VIX Index bottoming and higher oil prices ahead. Gold/silver will be turning the corner after the summer. Check out his twitter feed @NennerResearch.

Carl Schramm – Burn the Business Plan

from Financial Survival Network

Business schools teach that the most important prerequisite for starting a business is a business plan. Nonsense, says Carl Schramm in Burn the Business Plan, who for a decade headed the most important foundation devoted to entrepreneurship in this country. Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Google are just a few of the companies that began without one. Schramm explains that the importance of a business plan is only one of the many misconceptions about starting a company. Another is the myth of the kid genius—that all entrepreneurs are young software prodigies. In fact, the average entrepreneur is thirty-nine years old and has worked in corporate America for at least a decade. Schramm discusses why people with work experience in corporate America have an advantage as entrepreneurs. For one thing, they often have important contacts in the business world who may be customers for their new service or product. For another, they often have the opportunity to strategize with knowledgeable people and get valuable advice. Burn the Business Plantells stories of successful entrepreneurs in a variety of fields. It shows how knowledge, passion, determination, and a willingness to experiment and innovate are vastly more important than financial skill. This is an important, motivating look at true success that dispels the myths and offers invaluable real-world advice on how to achieve your dreams.

Whether it’s a German Shepherd or a Chihuahua, a dog can be an invaluable layer of protection in your home or your life.

John Rubino – To Buyback or Not to Buyback

from Financial Survival Network

As John Rubino sees it, the latest tax cut has merely cleared the way for even more stock buybacks. This does nothing to help the employees or the economy, but the management will profit handsomely. And therein lies the problem. While the employees are getting modest bonuses and raises, upper management is scoring big time. This will eventually lead to unrest and rebellion. Let’s see if he’s right or if the tax cuts benefit the economy bigly.

Make Florida Drivers Great Again

by Kerry Lutz
Financial Survival Network

The much vaunted self-driving car has a problem; it doesn’t drive very well and often suffers from poor judgment. Whether it’s a Tesla, Google Car, Mercedes or any other number of products attempting to dominate the American Highway, they just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. People have been killed or injured in while proving out these technological marvels. However, there’s an easy way to speed up the research and development process, designate the entire state of Florida as a self-driving car testing site.

According to SmartAsset (a personal finance site), for the second straight year, the Florida has earned the distinction of the nation’s worst drivers. By virtually any objective measure, it stands alone, be it fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles driven, arrests for driving under the influence per 1,000 drivers, percentage of uninsured drivers and speeding tickets. This state of affairs is largely due to the state’s unique demographics: tourists, transplants, teens and octogenarians. It’s filled with elderly drivers who’ve forgotten the basics of defensive driving or worse yet, can’t see over the steering wheel. And then there’s those pesky young people who haven’t yet learned the finer points of driving and present an imminent peril to everyone on the highway. Shockingly, Florida ranks #2 in the nation for distracted driving, because in order to get distracted, you’d have to be paying attention in the first place, something Floridians seldom do.

The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again?) of Bitcoin

by Kerry Lutz
Financial Survival Network

This wasn’t supposed to happen. As this article is written, Bitcoin is trading around $11,200. It’s up from breaking the $6000 barrier, but this could well be a dead cat bounce. That’s down from nearly $20,000 in mid December. After all, everyone knows that Bitcoin only goes up. Just like the stock market and housing prices. What gives? What’s happened in cryptocurrencies was completely predictable. In fact, I wrote an article about this very scenario back on December 25, 2017.

Of course no one listened, because when you’re under the influence of dopamine (a powerful neurotransmitter) you’re unable to listen to reason and act accordingly. Effortlessly making money in a bubble is quite gratifying and euphoria inducing. No one wants to come down from the high, you want it to keep going forever. But nothing lasts forever, especially financial driven manias. Just ask the tulip farmers in Holland.

Never Be Afraid to Re-Brand Yourself (#30)

from Viral Podcasting

I came across Tina Conroy at Podfest 2018. Last year she was on the fence about rebranding her podcast and website. Her show was entitled Get Into It. From that title, no one could tell what she was selling, what her podcast was about. I implored her to rebrand. It was a difficult process for her but finally she came up with The Intuitive Woman. This title oozes power. You know exactly what it’s about and why you should be listening. And best of all, success almost immediatley followed. She’s getting thousands of downloads and has an active Facebook group with hundreds of women following her. It’s not always this easy, but it certainly can be. Rebranding and reinvention is a part of life. Embrace it now!

Find The Sentence That Dooms Pension Funds (Don’t Worry, It’s Highlighted)

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

he “pension crisis” is one of those things — like electric cars and nuclear fusion — that’s definitely coming but never seems to actually arrive. However, for pension funds the reason a crisis hasn’t yet happened is also the reason that it will happen, and soon:

The Risk Pension Funds Can’t Escape

(Wall Street Journal) – Public pension funds that lost hundreds of billions during the last financial crisis still face significant risk from one basic investment: stocks.

That vulnerability came into focus earlier this month as markets descended into correction territory for the first time since February 2016. The California Public Employees’ Retirement System, the largest public pension fund in the U.S., lost $18.5 billion in value over a 10-day trading period ended Feb. 9, according to figures provided by the system.

Turkey Will Be Ground Zero in the Next Global Debt Crisis

by James Rickards
Daily Reckoning

Turkey is a beautiful country with a rich history including Greek, Roman and Muslim influences that make it one of the most fascinating places on Earth. It is literally a bridge between East and West: The mile-long Bosporus Bridge just north of Istanbul connects Europe and Asia across the Bosporus Strait.

Turkey has been a magnet for direct foreign investment from abroad and dollar-denominated loans by international banks to local enterprises. This investment enthusiasm is understandable given Turkey’s well-educated population of 83 million and its rank as the 17th-largest economy in the world, with a GDP of just under $1 trillion.

This Time is Completely Different – But Not in a Good Way

by David Stockman
David Stockman’s Contra Corner

If you don’t think the stock market is a giant accident waiting to happen, just consider the two most crucial developments—-soaring stocks and soaring deficits— since November 7, 2016.

First, on the lunacy side of the equation, the S&P 500 was up 35% at its 2873 peak on January 26, and now the dip-buyers, chart-readers and robo-machines are trying mightily to retest that level after the short-lived 10% correction at the turn of the month.

But here’s the thing. The pre-Trump market at 2130 on the S&P 500 was already trading at a nosebleed 22.4X LTM earnings of $94.55 as of Q4 2016. Consistent with the pig-through-the-python profits mini-cycle of the last four years, which flows from the parallel commodity/industrial/trade cycle, LTM earnings for Q4 2017 have now come in at $106.84 per share.

Mueller in Hot Pursuit

by Andrew P. Napolitano
LewRockwell.com

Last Friday, a federal grand jury sitting in Washington, D.C., indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian corporations for conspiracy and for using false instruments and computer hacking so as to influence the American presidential election in 2016. The indictment alleges a vast, organized and professional effort, funded by tens of millions of dollars, whereby Russian spies passed themselves off as Americans on the internet, on the telephone and even in person here in the U.S. to sow discord about Hillary Clinton and thereby assist in the election of Donald Trump.

Though an indictment is a charge only, it presumably relies on hard evidence of a wide and deep Russian project — so wide and so deep that it could only have been approved and paid for by the Kremlin. President Trump’s national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, characterized the allegations in the indictment as “incontrovertible.” The New York Times reported over the weekend that its Russian sources have now revealed that more than 1,000 people in Russia were involved for over three years.

Bill Murphy & Chris Waltzek on GoldSeek Radio – February 21st, 2018

by Chris Waltzek
GoldSeek Radio

Bill Murphy of GATA.org, returns with his perspective on the PMs and Bitcoin. After soaring to 20k and then plunging to less than 6k, investors are searching for safe haven assets with lower volatility, such as gold and silver. Bitcoin recently eclipsed 10k, due in part to anticipation surrounding the lightning network upgrade, where developers seek to reduce Bitcoin fees and vastly improve transaction rates. In addition, investors anticipate the NASDAQ to adopt new Bitcoin investment products in the next few weeks / months, such as ETFs and related derivatives, further increasing liquidity via new investment options. Top crypto developer and visionary techno-wizard, Daniel Larimer, founder of Steemit and BitShares, joined the EOS team with legendary Brock Pierce.

The End of (Artificial) Stability

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

The central banks’/states’ power to maintain a permanent bull market in stocks and bonds is eroding.

There is nothing natural about the stability of the past 9 years. The bullish trends in risk assets are artificial constructs of central bank/state policies. As these policies are reduced or lose their effectiveness, the era of artificial stability is coming to a close.

The 9-year run of Bull-trend stability is ending as a result of a confluence of macro dynamics:

1. Central banks are under pressure to reduce, end or reverse their unprecedented monetary stimulus, and the consequences are unpredictable, given the market’s reliance on the certainty that “central banks have our back” is ending.
