Where is Jim Rogers Investing His Money Now?

On the radio program, Jim Rogers and Michael Oliver return this week as guests.

Jim’s vision of an impending bankrupt western world caused him to move to Singapore. Other guests on this show understand the destruction of Keynesian economics but the advantage Jim has over all the others is time spent among common people in over 100 countries.

No one has a more intimate understanding of the social, moral, financial and structural fiber of nations. From his perch in Singapore we will ask Jim where he is investing his money these days. Does he still look favorably at Russia as he did the last time we spoke? What if anything might a Trump Presidency mean for geopolitics and investing around the globe?

As always we will ask Michal for his latest sense as to how the various markets are shaping up now? How close are we to a breakout in the entire commodity complex? How much further will gold rise before it hits its first major resistance? Are the dollar’s days numbered as Alasdair Macleod suggested last week?

Michael OliverJ. Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism.
