Inflation With a Slowing Economy

Everything was down hard this week. Of course, sandwiched between down days was a face ripping short covering rally that served to whiplash your editor in and out and then back in to taking a modest short position (SH-NYSE Proshares short S&P). Like Pavlov’s dog, the market has been conditioned […]

Financial System on Edge of Collapse

Saying this was a “risk off” week would  be  an  understatement  and we  may have come within a whisker of having the entire global financial system face the undertaker. It may be easy to criticize the Bank of England for abruptly taking a 180-degree turn, from getting ready to raise […]

Is Inflation Turning Hyper?

Bob Moriarty, Michael Oliver and Quinton Hennigh are this week’s guests.

A Brutal Week for Markets

Brutal! That’s the only way to describe this week’s action.

Alasdair Macleod, Michael Wood and Patrick Highsmith return.

Supply Chain Disruptions and Inflation

John Rubino, Patrick Highsmith and Michael Oliver are this week’s guests. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the world engaged in global trade on a scale never before in world history. The U.S. entered into this new era by off-shoring major industries in countries with low cost labor. That […]

The War in Ukraine is a “Venus Fly Trap”

This is the most difficult time in my 50+ years of investing because the world as we have known it since post World War II is rapidly changing with the West and its very dishonest fiat currencies very rapidly declining toward the dustbin of history. Most all of America’s institutions […]

Why Gold May be Poised for the Next Big Bull Run

“It is best to avoid the orthodox notion of playing Gold Stocks off the threat of dollar depreciation, which makes positioning golds as not much more than speculation on foreign exchange conditions. When positioning on the real price (of gold) one is looking at earnings, which is investing. And profit […]

Rose-Colored-Glasses

Waiting for Gold’s Next Turn
