March 19, 2019 | Charlie Brown, Lucy’s Football and Gold

Gee, I sure hope you didn’t miss the gala launch of our three-part interview series today! We just finished streaming the first one this afternoon.

March 17, 2019 | Could Britain’s Long Emergency Crash on Our Shores?

By now, you’ve heard that Parliament voted to push the battle over Britain’s exit from the EU, or “Brexit,” past the original March 29 deadline. Now it’s June 30. Maybe Britain will leave then. Maybe it won’t. In this chaos, it’s hard to tell. One thing’s for sure — the extension of the crisis is […]

March 13, 2019 | Washington’s Big Wednesday Will Crash on America’s Shores

Did you ever see the surfer film “Big Wednesday?” It stars the late, great Jan-Michael Vincent as one of three surfers who experience the ups and downs of life — and surfing — over the years. The story comes to a head in 1974, when enormous waves crash onto their beach. By then, their innocence […]

March 7, 2019 | Is King Dollar Facing a Death Cross?

The U.S. dollar has been on a roll in 2019. The greenback is up about 2% from the low it hit in early January. In currencies, 2% is a big move. So, this is bringing dollar bulls out of the woodwork. But those bulls may be headed for the slaughterhouse. That’s because a longer-term signal […]

March 5, 2019 | The Dead Horse in the Foyer

The happy talkers on TV want you to think all is fine with the world. The White House and China are going to come to a deal on trade, and everything is going to be just fine. But that just ain’t true. Not by a long shot. The happy talkers are trying to paper over […]

March 3, 2019 | The Hottest Metals Right Now Are …

Not gold or silver. Though they do look good. (And if you downloaded my free gold report, you’d know which gold stock looks really good.) Instead, I’m talking about base metals. Copper, aluminum, nickel and zinc. Base metals are having a great year — up 12% so far. Why? China is stimulating the heck out […]

February 27, 2019 | Gold Waves a Battle Flag!

If you’re watching the action in gold recently, you know it’s bullish. Should you sell this rally? I’ll give you my thoughts, as well as a way to play it. First, let’s recap. I told you back at the beginning of the year that gold was making a bullish move. Also in January, I told […]

February 23, 2019 | Weekend Roundup — The Fed Flips, Brexit Wrecks-It, Gold and More!

The mainstream media is fixated on the on-again/off-again U.S.-China trade deal; so much so that some important stories are slipping through the cracks. Here, I’ve rounded up important, need-to-know briefings and charts on everything from a flipped-out Fed to a looming Brexit crisis to gold, oil and debt. Consider this your “must read” for the […]

February 21, 2019 | Is ‘Sleeping Lion’ Lithium Ready to Wake Up and Roar?

Lithium and lithium stocks roared like lions through 2017 into 2018 … but they fell asleep in January of last year, and they’ve snoozed ever since. Well, now there’s strong evidence those sleeping lions are ready to wake up and roar. And you can play this mega-trend, this supercycle, for potentially big bucks. First, let’s […]

February 14, 2019 | A ‘Kiss’ Before a Post-Valentine’s Day Market Swoon

The market has enjoyed a nice rally since it bottomed in late December. So is it all clear for the bulls? No! Make that: Heck, no! The macro news keeps getting worse. Something that hasn’t gone up? Retail sales. Data out today revealed that those fell 1.2% in December, their biggest one-month drop since 2009. […]

February 10, 2019 | Shining Brighter Than Gold

It’s no secret I’m bullish on gold. But there’s something going on with another metal. Something that makes me more bullish on it than I am on gold. The metal I’m talking about? It’s silver! And silver miners? Well, they’re like diamonds in the dustbin at recent prices. Now, here’s where you may think “Sean’s […]

I have three powerful gold charts for you. If you aren’t bullish now, you should be by the time you finish reading this short article.

From an increasingly favorable supply/demand balance to strong central bank buying, gold has lots going for it. Use any short-term pullback to get on board! Happy Year of the Pig!

Gold is soaring. Soaring! It just clocked its highest finish since mid-May, and is enjoying its longest win streak in a month. Suddenly everyone is a gold bull.

January 29, 2019 | Gold is Whispering … are You Listening?

I have been recommending gold positions to my subscribers recently … and I’m poised to add more. Because gold miners are whispering to us right now. And they are saying: “Prices are going higher. A LOT higher.” This all relates directly to the things I’ve been pounding the table about recently. The economic timebombs about […]

January 27, 2019 | The Fed Lights a Fire Under Gold

I think we’re hitting an iceberg, and the lookout (the Federal Reserve) is too scared to tell the passengers. In fact, the Fed is so scared, you can smell the sweat. But rather than be the bearer of bad news, the Fed is passing out party favors. So, the crowd on Wall Street keeps the […]

January 24, 2019 | When the White House Agrees with Me, WORRY!

You know I’m worried about how the government shutdown could hurt the economy. On Tuesday, I said the longer the government shutdown drags on, the more it grinds down imports, exports, consumer spending and more. And if it keeps going for weeks … months … it could throw a big wrench in the works for […]

January 22, 2019 | For Want of a Nail, an Economy is Lost

My friend Phil is waiting by his mailbox for a board game that’s made in China. No, the game is nothing like “Monopoly.” It’s called “Resident Evil 2,” and is based on a zombie movie starring the lovely and talented Milla Jovovich. And the fact that it is not in my friend Phil’s waiting hand […]

January 20, 2019 | The Mother of All Shutdowns Points to 2 Red-Hot Investments

We’re looking at a breakdown of law and order. By that, I mean if the government shutdown continues another week, even the federal courts will run out of money. They will lose the ability to function with any semblance of normality. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. At 28 days long as of […]

January 17, 2019 | Market Set Up for a ‘Kiss’ Before a Swoon

The market enjoyed a nice rally this week. So has my bearish outlook changed? No. Make that: Heck, no! The macro news keeps getting worse. • On Monday, Chinese exports badly missed expectations, falling 4.4% vs. estimates of a rise of 4.8%. This is on top of slumping car sales in China. This raises the odds […]

January 15, 2019 | Wall Street & Washington Are Running America into the Ground

I like to think of myself as an optimistic guy. Not today. Today, I have to come to grips with an ugly truth. And yes, there’s an investment angle in this. As a nation, we depend on our leaders to guide the country along, hopefully to a better tomorrow. Too bad for our children, then, […]
