Money Always Moves from Weak Hands into Strong Hands

Precious metals expert Bob Moriarty advises investors on how they can avoid the disinformation and invest with the smart money. Over the last 15 years I have come to realize just how much disinformation and simply bad information there is available to readers of financial matters. Much of what you watch and hear is simply wrong. People wonder why they consistently lose money and it’s simple. The best-informed investor is the most profitable investor. But that’s not in terms of quantity of investing information; it has far more to do with quality of investing material. Listen for the signal and learn to ignore the noise. If you reduce investing to the financial atom level, it really has to do with money flow. Money always flows from weak hands into strong hands. That’s something you should have learned in kindergarten. The smart money buys at bottoms and sells at tops. The dumb money sells at bottoms and buys at tops. I’ve heard that 70–90% of investors lose money and if the number is accurate, that’s why. So anytime you make an investment, forget location, management and balance sheet. Look to see what the smart money is doing and what the weak hands are up to. Do the opposite of what the dumb money is doing. That makes you the smart money automatically. Nowhere is this truer than with commodities. The amount of disinformation is absurd. No matter if you worship at the house of God the Father, God the Son and … Continue reading

Gold Equity Correction Overdue

Technical analyst Jack Chan foresees a gold bull market correction, which he believes would make an excellent entry point. Our proprietary cycle indicator is down. GLD remains on short-term sell signal. Gold stocks as represented by $HUI have not had a consolidation this year and it is long overdue. The big picture remains the same in the dollar as the multi-month consolidation continues. Summary A bull market in gold and silver has been confirmed, but no bull market is sustainable on a nonstop price spike, therefore, it is not if but when a correction will begin. Bull market corrections can be very sharp but short lived, therefore, the next cycle bottom could be an excellent entry point.

Weekend Edition: Doug Casey on “Brexit”

Weekend Edition: Doug Casey on “Brexit” By Justin Spittler Editor’s note: It’s been a month since “Brexit”…the historic event that wiped out more than $3 trillion from the global stock market in two days. But what happens now? Today, Casey Research founder Doug Casey breaks down what the decision means for Britain…and how it foreshadows some big changes in the world at large. On June 23, the UK had a referendum in which 52% of voters opted to leave the European Union. I applaud Britain for leaving the corrupt, costly, and dysfunctional EU. It may be the best thing that’s happened to Europe since the end of World War 2. And, I think, it signals the start of some major new trends. In principle, the idea of the European Union sounded good. All the signatory countries joined a customs union so goods and people could flow freely. The idea was to both increase general prosperity and decrease the chances of another war. It sounds very libertarian—in principle. But in practice it turned out very differently. And may wind up doing the opposite of its intended purpose. Europeans could have had all the benefits of free trade simply by eliminating all import duties and quotas—a very simple and costless solution. Having duties and quotas amount to putting your own country under embargo. They increase the costs and decrease the availability of foreign goods and services; that lowers a country’s competitiveness while decreasing its standard of living. It sounds insane. Why would … Continue reading

Doug Casey on President Hillary Clinton

Doug Casey on President Hillary Clinton… World War III… and the Deep State By Nick Giambruno Will Hillary Clinton win in November and ensure the Deep State stays in control? I recently sat down with Casey Research founder Doug Casey to discuss this. Doug is a former classmate of Bill Clinton and has met him several times, including once at the White House. Doug shared his insights on why a Clinton win could accelerate the onset of World War III. We also touched on how Donald Trump will destroy the Republican Party… and why it’s a good thing. I think you’ll find our discussion insightful. Until next time, Nick Giambruno: There is a popular conception that only the “best and brightest” go into government. I think this is a sacred cow that needs to be slaughtered. What’s your take, Doug? Doug Casey: It’s a real problem when a pernicious myth subverts reality. Everybody believes that the institution of government is like Camelot—a wise ruler assisted by noble paladins. Maybe that meme gained traction in recent times with John Kennedy and his good-looking wife, Jackie. They looked like an ideal couple. They weren’t. But they were a lot better than what followed for the next 50 years… The fact is that the high levels of government do get people with high IQs. They can pass tests. They’re skilled at manipulating both laws and people. But they tend to be of low moral character, number one. Number two, despite their high IQs, … Continue reading

The Blind Leading the Clueless

The Blind Leading the Clueless By Jeff Thomas (Gregory Mankiw, an economics professor at Harvard, interviews Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen.) Most of us watch television. In part, we seek to be entertained, but, additionally, we often seek to be enlightened as to “what’s going on.” In a difficult era like the present one, in which some of the most prominent countries are experiencing the onset of an economic crisis, virtual cartoon characters are competing as choices in political contests, governments are becoming increasingly rapacious and a police state is developing rapidly, it’s not surprising if the average person questions, “What on earth are they thinking?” Well, there’s no shortage of media exposure to answer that question. Today, there are a multitude of channels offering 24/7 “news,” from which we may hope to glean some insight as to what the leaders of the world are thinking. Yet, in spite of the endless folderol being offered, the leadership vision remains about as clear as mud. They don’t want war, but are invading more countries than ever before in history. Political hopefuls are vague at best regarding their proposed platforms for action, yet they attack each other as though they’re reporters for the tabloids. Governments continually speak of their wish to lighten the load on the common man, whilst heaping laws, regulations, fines and taxes on him like never before, and whilst heaping billions in tax dollars on their cronies in the financial industry. They claim to seek greater security for all, … Continue reading

Here’s What Happens When the World Overdoses on Debt

Here’s What Happens When the World Overdoses on Debt By Justin Spittler Bonds are no longer assets. They’re liabilities. You might find this hard to believe. After all, most folks think of bonds as a safe way to grow their money. For decades, you could make a decent return of 5% or more in government- and investment-grade bonds without risking big losses. Not anymore. These days, most bonds pay next to nothing. Some have negative interest rates, which means owners must pay interest on the bond instead of earning interest. If you own a bond that pays a negative interest rate, you’re guaranteed to lose money if you hold the bond to maturity. And yet, folks are lining up to buy these bonds. Dispatch readers know we’re in this mess because governments have gone mad trying to “stimulate” the economy. Central banks have cut rates more than 650 times since the 2008 financial crisis. Global rates are now at the lowest level in 5,000 years. Low and negative rates have done nothing for the global economy. The U.S., Europe, Japan, and China—the world’s four biggest economies—are all growing at their slowest rates in decades. About the only thing these policies have done is put investors in serious danger. Today, we’ll explain why the global financial system is more fragile than ever…and we’ll show you two proven ways to protect yourself. • You can’t escape negative interest rates… More than $13 trillion worth of government bonds now have negative rates. That’s more … Continue reading
