Chris Martenson – Greece Continued Implosion and Venezuela Going Mad Max

from Financial Survival Network

Chris Martenson says that Greece is cooked. They’re getting their payments stretched out and deferred nearly into the next century. But where’s the growth going to come from. Greece is in a full scale depression. Austerity is killing Greece, 10k businesses shut down so far this year and 250k since the crisis started. And have you seen Venezuela lately. Lines to get everything, people going Mad Max to eat. What’s a socialist to do? Answer, look to free markets and true capitalism.

TJ Walker – Diamonds Start Growing on Trees or in Laboratories

from Financial Survival Network

TJ Walker says that the days of mining diamonds from the Earth may soon be coming to an end. There’s a lab in Singapore that actually grows investment grade diamonds in their laboratory. And they can’t be told from their natural brethren. Will diamonds become so plentiful that they become worthless, or will they be able to keep the lid on the production and keep supplies limited. TJ believes they can and will. What do you think?

Stephen Moore – Fueling Freedom

from Financial Survival Network

Stephen Moore, a well known Wall Street Journal Editorial Board member has written a new book about the Fracking revolution. A war has been taking place in the US and around the world. Fracking, whereby previously unobtainable oil is now produced in amazing quantities has revolutionized energy production. However, there’s a segment of the country that believes that Green Energy is the way to go. Unfortunately, at the present time it’s just not viable. That’s why all of Obama’s Green Initiatives have failed miserably. What’s next? The world’s appetite for energy is increasing, although more slowly as a result of the poor economy. But eventually the US will be a major energy exporter and Stephen Moore believes it’s the best thing for the US and the economy.

High Frequency Trading with Scott Patterson, Author of ‘The Quants & Dark Pools’ (Episode #676)

from The Creating Wealth Show

Jason Hartman is joined by author, Scott Patterson to discuss high frequency trading, of which roughly 70 percent is driven by computers. Scott says the firms using artificial intelligence for high-speed trading make it nearly impossible for the little guy to compete in the markets. According to his book, Dark Pools, these robot systems trade in milliseconds. High frequency firms flood the market with buy and sell orders, effectively clogging up the system and posing a threat to other firms. While this electronic exchange made the system more effective, one has to wonder if this trading style hasn’t become detrimental to the markets overall when trading successfully is defined by milliseconds. Scott coined the term “A.I. Bandits” to describe electronic high frequency trading. Scott also discusses the history of quant strategies based on his book, The Quants, a mathematical scientific approach to outsmarting Wall Street, which led to the recent financial crash. He calls the quant system “a classic tale of hubris.” Scott Patterson is author of The Quants and his new release, Dark Pools, and is currently a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where he covers financial regulation from Washington, D.C. He has also written for the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Mother Earth News. He has a Masters of Arts degree from James Madison University. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

Bix Weir – Time for Trump and Sanders to Unite




from Financial Survival Network

Bix Weir believes that in order for the country to survive the coming crash, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders must unite forces. Otherwise the American Public will remain polarized and incapable of acting in their own best interests. This will effectively play into the hands of the bad guys who want to impose one world government and a global currency, thus enslaving humanity. Bix is convinced that it’s been their plan and goal all along. Will Trump and Sanders break down the partisan divide and unite for the good of America? It’s a long shot but stranger things have happened before.

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Eland joined us today to discuss the country’s future relations with the Mideast. Ivan believes that the US’s growing relationship with Vietnam is a good starting point for the Mideast. His views on US foreign interventionism and militaristic adventurism seem to align well with candidate Trump’s view of things. Require definable US interests before getting involved in situations that might not work out well. Restraint is often the best response or action.

Famous Hedge Fund Manager Reveals Top Gold Pick

by Daniel Ameduri
Future Money Trends

Dear Reader,

New York Times Best Selling Author and Hedge Fund Manager Marin Katusa, of Katusa Research, shocked investors this week with the revelation of his top gold pick. In an interview about China’s own debt crisis and the massive amount of money flowing into the gold sector, Marin Katusa revealed that his top gold holding is a small gold accumulator, Brazil Resources (TSXV: BRI & US: BRIZF), who has acquired over 10 million ounces of gold through acquisition!

Buying up gold assets during the bear market, now Marin sees this company as a golden ticket for investors. With a total of 13 million ounces of gold-equivalent resources, this is the one stock he’s actively writing million-dollar checks to, and he stated he’s already the single largest shareholder through his funds.

UK Immigration Crisis Hits New Extreme, Catastrophic ONS Migration Stats Ahead of EU Referendum

by Nadeem Walayat
Market Oracle

The latest ONS data released this week shows an ACCELERATION in the rate of mass migration into Britain, in what amounts to a continuing 17 year long exponential trend of out of control immigration with net migration of +333k in the year to December 2015 added to Britain’s population, an INCREASE of 20k on the preceding year which illustrates that immigration is STILL ACCELERATING. Which literally translates into a DAILY flood of near 1000 people turning up on Britain’s shores and demanding housing, education, school places, jobs and benefits such as tax credits, housing and child benefits, health & social services that have been buckling and breaking as illustrated by social housing that in most cities has been in a state of total paralysis for many years now.

Andrew Maguire – Ignore The Pullback, Gold To Surge Above $1400 On The Next Leg Higher

from King World News

Today whistleblower and London metals trader Andrew Maguire told King World News that KWN readers around the world should ignore the pullback in the gold market because the price of gold will surge above $1,400 on the next leg higher.

Andrew Maguire: “Whenever we see such a synthetic divergence develop between the wholesale physical markets and the paper-centric non-delivery markets, it allows the commercials (and central planners), who have exposure to the physical markets, to not only take the short side of these naked longs, but to do so with impunity…

A Few Questions To Those Who Slam Gold

by Graham Summers
Gold Seek

Gold is perhaps the most maligned asset class in the world.

On an almost weekly basis the financial media mocks Gold and publishes articles claiming it is a terrible investment.

It’s rather odd, as less than 1% of investors actually owns Gold. Why is it so important to trash an asset class that almost no one actually owns?

Actually, forget that question, I’d like to see answers to these questions instead…

If owning Gold is such a bad idea…

Trump’s Secret Weapon – Massive Hillbama Premium Increases Coming Soon

by Wall Street Journal
David Stockman’s Contra Corner

Big health plans stung by losses in the first few years of the U.S. health law’s implementation are seeking hefty premium increases for individual plans sold through insurance exchanges in more than a dozen states.

The insurers’ proposed rates for individual coverage in states that have made their 2017 requests public largely bear out health plans’ grim predictions about their challenges under the health-care overhaul.

According to the insurers’ filings with regulators, large plans in states including New York, Pennsylvania and Georgia are seeking to raise rates by 20% or more.

Here’s What the Best Stock-market Timing System is Telling You to Do Now

Expect the market to bust out in early June, then gradually fade

by Mark Hulbert
Market Watch

The stock market will exhibit strength through June 7, and then weaken until the end of June.

This remarkably precise prediction comes from the stock-market timing system that has the best record of any tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest over the past three decades.

Better yet, the system couldn’t be simpler: It trades on nothing but the calendar, exploiting seasonal strength around the turns of each month as well as prior to stock-exchange holidays.

There is a catch, however, and it’s potentially a big one: Despite having an outstanding long-term record, this system has lagged the market over the last decade. Following its lead going forward depends on whether you think the past few years are the exception or the new rule.

A Guide to the Trump-Sanders Debate

by Ryan McMaken
Mises.org

It looks like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are planning to debate each other. Drudge today is calling it “the debate of the century.”

Color me skeptical. If it happens, the debate will provide some entertainment for political junkies, but the areas of disagreement between the two are actually quite small, and the debate is likely to focus on “soft” issues like being polite to women. Don’t look for much debate on issues that get to the heart of the economic system.

The debate’s primary significance is in how it marginalizes Hillary Clinton, but as an actual “debate” this event will be almost totally about slogans and style since the candidates already agree on many key issues.

Gold Looking Vulnerable While Gold Stocks Correct

by Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT
The Daily Gold

Last week we highlighted our gold stocks bull analog chart which showed the gold stocks correcting at least 20% at this point during both the 2008-2009 and 2000-2001 recoveries. We concluded that gold stocks were likely to continue to correct in the days and weeks ahead. While that has played out so far, we should also note that Gold is suddenly looking more vulnerable.

Unless Gold has a big bounce the next two days then its monthly chart will show a bearish engulfing candle for the month of May. That implies weakness in June. Key support levels are $1180 and $1140. The bearish reversal in May takes Gold back below its 40-month moving average at $1252. The 40-month moving average has been an excellent trend indicator for Gold throughout its history and it is the last line of defense for bears. They defended it, now bulls will need to defend $1180 and $1140.
