The Weekly Perspective with David Morgan for February 21st, 2018

from The Morgan Report

David Morgan‘s weekly perspective for February 21st, 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…

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.

George Matheis – Man’s Best Friend and Best Protector

from Financial Survival Network

George Matheis Jr. has branched out. He’s now training dogs for personal protection. Whether it’s a German Shepherd or a Chihuahua, a dog can be an invaluable layer of protection in your home or your life. Since they can perceive danger, hear far off potential intruders and defend their master to the end, they’re better than any alarm or other self-defense tool.

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!

Market Report: Weaker, but in Consolidation Pattern

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

Gold and silver continued their consolidation of the last few weeks, becoming progressively less overbought in the process. Since last Friday’s close, gold was down $18 by early trade in Europe this morning, at $1329. Silver over the same time-frame is down only six cents at $16.60.

[…] The principal factor behind gold’s weakness relative to silver is the dollar’s continuing dead-cat bounce, where its index futures cash value gained about 1% over the week. Under the pretext of rising US Treasury bond yields, the bears have been able to induce relative weakness in the gold futures contract.

We Only Have One Cop…

for your school but we have six armed officers who will guard a coward’s house 24×7 so he doesn’t have to answer questions from the media:

We sent @BrianEntin to BSO Deputy Scot Peterson’s Boynton Beach home to try and talk to him about his resignation today. Were met by 6 @PBCountySheriff deputies standing guard outside his home. They prevented us from approaching the house. pic.twitter.com/1QPlmeHtqb

So, students and parents at Parkland, along with anyone else, let’s see if I get this right.

This specific officer knew about Cruz’s intentions as he was alerted about a prior call to the Sheriff’s Office stating that Cruz intended to shoot up a school — in 2016. He did nothing.

108 Months of Global Easing Ends: Tightening vs Recessions

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
MishTalk

108 months of global easing by the Fed, ECB, and Bank of England comes to a halt.

Global tightening is on the way. What can possibly go wrong?

I took an excellent chart from a Liz Ann Sonders Tweet and added recession dates.

Note that in 2001 it did not take much tightening before a recession started. Then like now, the Fed was positive everything was under control.

Global Growth? Retail Sales Flopped in US, UK, Canada, Germany, and Australia.

Stock Market Climbs as Fed Report Suggests No Need for Four Rate Hikes in 2018

10-year yield continues to ease; dollar rises

by Mark DeCambre and Barbara Kollmeyer
Market Watch

U.S. stocks climbed Friday as U.S. benchmarks looked set to end an up-and-down stretch of trade on a high note, amid consternation about rising bond yields and the reemergence of long-stagnant inflation.

A Federal Reserve monetary policy report, however, offered little sign that the central bank was overly concerned about the type of out-of-control inflation that might warrant more than three rate increases in 2018.

How Global Growth and Infrastructure Are Driving Commodities

by Richard (Rick) Mills
Ahead of the Herd

The global economy is booming again after years in the doldrums, commodities are back in a big way, and metals prices are for the most part, way up.

In our last article showing how commodities are the place to be in 2018 , we looked at five drivers: inflation, the low dollar, economic growth, the relative undervalue of commodities versus other sectors, and tightness of supply. This article expands on the economic growth argument, and explains how commodity prices are being moved by a bevy of infrastructure projects around the world – all demanding “yuge”, as Donald Trump would say, amounts of metals.

The Fancy Goat: How to Make Shit Happen

by Joe Jarvis
The Daily Bell

I’m sorry for cursing, but I have to be frank. Most people just don’t do the required work to get what they want. They may work hard in other areas, usually to someone else’s benefit. But the timing just never seems right to do the work to make the changes they want in their own lives.

This is a story of two people who did, and are still doing, the hard work. This is the story of two people I believe exemplify the drive for freedom. This is a philosophy I try to impart, and sometimes fail, while writing for The Daily Bell.
