October 10, 2019 | Wall Street’s Silver Little Secret

  There’s a problem with gold and silver. It’s not that no one wants to buy them. They have the exact opposite problem … The heavy-hitters on Wall Street are already backing up the truck. Here’s the little secret they don’t want you to know: They aren’t done loading up. I have two charts to […]

October 10, 2019 | A Critical Moment for Uranium?

A slew of new reports on old news about Donald Trump’s Nuclear Fuel Working Group (NFWG) is hitting the wires today. That’s because the NFWG is supposed to report its recommendations by next Monday.     I haven’t seen anything of substance that’s new in these reports, but the reminder of the deadline is apparently […]

October 10, 2019 | The Cost of a Political Divide

QUESTION: Trump Impeachment. Y’know Marty, since the Democrats have tried unsuccessfully for so long to find some dirt on Trump, the guy must be squeaky clean, no? NMM ANSWER: Impeachment occurs when someone does something while in office. It is not based on what they did before. All the stuff they bring up from his […]

October 10, 2019 | Fantasy Planning Yields Financial Disappointment

Each week I encounter nice people with deeply flawed retirement plans.  Many have been aided into misguided thinking by financial-sector marketing and salespeople, planners, even their accountants.  This is a problem because faulty assumptions in money management tend to end in a nightmare.  Working with sober return and withdrawal expectations is the best antidote, and […]

October 10, 2019 | Metals & VIX Are Set To Launch Dramatically Higher

The recent rotation in the US stock market and US major indexes have set up a very interesting pattern in the Metals and VIX charts.  Our researchers believe precious metals, Gold and Silver, are setting up a new momentum base/bottom and are beginning an early stage bullish price rally that may surprise many traders.  If […]

October 10, 2019 | Don’t Inhale

Was it just months ago this blog was labeled not only pathetic but paleo? The crime: suggesting legal weed might impact real estate. Especially rentals. And the question was posed: would you want to be a landlord renting space to junior potheads growing plants in the shower and exhaling odours into the paint? The moisters […]

October 9, 2019 | The Emerging ‘Nightmare’: Created By America’s Baby Boomers!

The facts are available to discern. Why will our millennials and Gen X citizens have to solve our financial problems. The Baby Boom generation (1971 – 2019) has created a nightmare situation for those that follow (our children and grand children). Let’s review the facts for everyone to discern. These official numbers reveal why an emerging […]

October 9, 2019 | The World’s Largest (Democratic!) Biometric Prison

Whenever they talk about India and its “inevitable” rise to world economic dominance, establishment hacks like Thomas “Iraq War booster” Friedman always seem compelled to note that the country is “the world’s largest democracy.” They might want to talk to the residents of the now-defunct Jammu & Kashmir before invoking that phrase, but the underlying point seems […]

October 9, 2019 | The Trap

When the cost of money tanks, debt swells. People devote more income to making payments. They save less, spend less and worry more. Liquid assets vanish. Children go shoeless. Dogs run free. Relationships crumble. But realtors and divorce lawyers are happy. Audi guys, too. That may be a tad exaggerated. But you get the drift. […]

October 9, 2019 | The Allure of Upswings in Miners and Silver

The entire precious metals sector rallied yesterday, but the upswing was particularly visible in case of silver and (especially) mining stocks. Both: silver, and miners moved to new October highs. Silver’s breakout was tiny, but miners rallied relatively significantly and that’s the part of the current long trade that’s particularly profitable. Of course, these profits […]

October 9, 2019 | Debt Free in 30: Real Estate, Personal Debt, and Recession Indicators

Good discussion on investment and economic risks in Canada today. Real Estate, Personal Debt, and Recession Indicators with Ben Rabidoux – Debt Free In 30 – A Personal Finance Podcast – Ep 266. Is a recession coming? Are private lenders replacing bank mortgages? And is that causing more risky investments? On today’s podcast, our guest […]

October 8, 2019 | The ‘Dollar’ ($1) a Number circulated via Photons! What?

Let’s think about this currency called the ‘dollar’ (now a cyber currency). It is typical of all currencies on this planet. Today, our dollar is a virtual ‘number’ ($1) within consciousness. The ‘number’ derives (comes) from the mind of a bankster. The ‘number’ gets typed into a computer account (our money originates and is stored within […]

October 8, 2019 | Should Americans Hoard Cash?

QUESTION: Martin, I appreciate all the information that you provide and just got done reading about money shortage and hoarding. Would it be good for US citizens to hoard also? Is there any difference in hoarding dollars or gold and silver coins? Thanks for your comments. DM ANSWER: In order for gold and silver to be a […]

October 8, 2019 | Fed Seeks Firm Grip On Interest Rates, Supposedly Not QE

Powell was busy yapping away about the need to control interest rates, looking more than a bit foolish in the process. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says the Fed Will Increase Supply of Bank Reserves, but supposedly it’s not QE. The Federal Reserve will soon increase its purchases of short-term Treasury securities to avoid a recurrence […]

October 8, 2019 | Why and When to Sell

A reader wrote in to say that he owns way too many junior resource stocks. Many are deep in the red. But when he looks over the list, he remembers why he bought them and can’t bring himself to sell in the face of that potential. I understand. It hurts to realize a loss. It’s […]

October 8, 2019 | Boo

What is it about October? Volatile weather. Volatile markets. Elections. Shorter days. Falling leaves. These are weeks when investors brace for a financial roller-coaster ride. For well over a century this month has sucked. Stock market gyrations during October have averaged 38% more than any other slice of the calendar. The biggest, scariest declines have […]

October 8, 2019 | GE Offers a Blueprint in Corporate Governance Changes Needed

As I have been pointing out for a couple of decades now, aggressive risk-taking and unsustainable return assumptions in retirement plans and pension funds are a reliable recipe for disappointment and financial hardship. The trouble is it can take years before the inevitable becomes obvious, and by then it is often too late to make […]

October 7, 2019 | Our Elites, the Fed, Trends Emerging!

Our media and our government elites assume that our Fed is a lawful/constitutional entity which promotes peace, progress, and fairness for our markets. But is this image valid given today’s Fed operations? Let’s think about this entity more deeply! It’s history is essential to understand! This video might help with understanding! Today’s Wall Street Journal […]

October 7, 2019 | Precious Metals Desk at JP Morgan Criminally Charged

The precious metals Desk at JP Morgan Chase on September 16, 2019, was criminally charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with being a criminal enterprise for approximately eight years in its manipulation of the prices of gold, silver, and other precious metals. The head of that desk and two other precious metals traders were charged […]

October 7, 2019 | US Stock Markets Trade Sideways – Waiting on News/Guidance

Our researchers believe the global concerns centered around Banking and Debt within the Emerging Markets and Asia/Europe are very likely to become major issues over the next 3+ months.  These potentially dangerous issues could have far-reaching pricing ramifications for almost all of the world’s financial markets.  This weekend, we received first-hand information from an associate […]

October 7, 2019 | On Wall Street, the Whoopee Cushion Rules

The Dow Industrials ended the week with an 800-point Whoopee Cushion bounce that recouped two-thirds of a 1300-point loss suffered days earlier. The swoon, exhilarating as it may have seemed to traders, will do little to brighten an economic picture that has gone from boom to gloom since mid-summer. One might think the dark cloud […]

October 7, 2019 | Inventor of the Yield Curve Indicator Explains Code Red Now Flashing

The discussion below with Campbell Harvey is insightful. The ‘could this time be different’ questions are common, but in reality, GDP growth is routinely revised lower months and years after initial estimates, so the fact that recent quarters have reported still positive GDP growth to date, does not mean that a recession may not be already here […]

October 7, 2019 | Flyers

Being in a political debate is no treat. Especially when you have a ton to lose. I know. At the end of my first term as a member of Parliament (I was a Tory then – the good kind, a PC) the election featured a wild event one night in my riding. There were thirteen […]

October 6, 2019 | Pay Close Attention to This Gold & Silver Signal

One of the most important signals of a precious metals bull market is flashing “green.” And I want to make sure you don’t get left in the dust when the profit train rolls out. I’m talking about the gold-silver ratio. The price of gold divided by the price of silver. And boy, is it ever […]

October 6, 2019 | The World’s Largest (Democratic!) Biometric Prison

Whenever they talk about India and its “inevitable” rise to world economic dominance, establishment hacks like Thomas “Iraq War booster” Friedman always seem compelled to note that the country is “the world’s largest democracy.” They might want to talk to the residents of the now-defunct Jammu & Kashmir before invoking that phrase, but the underlying point seems […]
