Investment Strategies In An Economic Maelstrom?

Financial investing at this point can no longer be considered business as usual. Everything you learned in Business 101 has been nullified and/or usurped by the Fed and other global central banks. Application of 101 business rules require a fair market system and there’s been nothing fair about the fact that global central banks have hijacked the global economy, printed enough fiat currency to sink the unsinkable, and implemented quantitative easing manipulations that have “floated” economies for years, but gutted the global economic foundation in the process.

Central banks are finding themselves caught in a self-created trap. Due to a combination of failed monetary programs and an extremely over-extended “wait and see” delay in taking corrective actions, central banks are finding themselves in a no-win situation. Raising interest rates at this point can only disincentivize business and market investment, while drying up cheap money that sectors like housing have been gorging on. Yet, if central banks continue to lower interest rates, they risk currency devaluation and open the door widely for money outflows.

The British Pound recently fell to its lowest level in thirty years. Eurozone economic growth shrank from a .6% GDP increase in Q1 to a .3% increase in Q2. In spite of a good jobs report at the end of last week, U.S. retail sales in July were unchanged, while a .5% rise had been anticipated and July producer prices dropped .4% while a .1% rise had been anticipated. Even China, which posted a 6% year-on-year industrial production increase, managed to fall short of market expectations.

Even broad-based exposure in Blue Chip stocks is probably not a good strategy, due to a peaking stock market, running on its last leg at best. Perhaps a spread of emerging technologies is a better stock play, but regardless, physical precious metal investment is not only a great hedge against catastrophic economic collapse or convulsions, but also offers a tremendous opportunity for both short and long term growth.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about,
    why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening
    to read?

    1. Not clear on what you’re referring to as there is no video associated with my article whatsoever. The article attempts to be informative and instructional, perhaps you could read it again with new eyes.

  2. While this will not change a thing, unless those that run and control the monetary system, get serious and wise to themselves and realize that the crash will not make them an exception of being counterpart to one of the worst controlled crimes in history! The minipulation and death of all humanity! In which you will have to stand trial before GOD ! Those involved read the words constantly!!! “IN GOD WE TRUST” I wanted to make sure all understand that, before I go into the STUPID ADVICE to have everyone buy gold ! It is not, that it is good advice ? Buying gold is fine as long as it can be afforded ! IT IS LIKE TELLING A PERSON TO BUY A CAR, OR BUY SOME BETTER CLOTHES, WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE MONEY ! hOW SMART IS THAT?? Like Gold is $1309 to $1400 dollars an ounce ! We the people have been suffering for many years ! There is no middle class any more! Most every one is living on credit! they have no money, they buy on credit. If they have a pay coming ,they go deeper in debt! So GOLD IS FOR THE RICH! IF THE PRICE GOES DOWN THEY BUY MORE! IT IS A GREAT SENSE OF SECURITY AND I AGREE ON THAT! SOMETHING FOR THE RICH TO GAZE AT OCCASIONALLY AND BUY WHEN IT GOES DOWN! HOWEVER ,THE GREED WILL NEVER LEAVE AND THE ECONOMY WILL NEVER FLOURISH FOR THE POOR ! UNTIL WE DEFEAT THE POWER OF DARKNESS AND BRING THE GLORY OF GOD AND ALL ITS HAPPINESS ! WONDERS ! AND BLESSINGS ! HERE ON EARTH . WE NEED A JUBILEE AS IN THE BIBLE. LEVITICUS: CHAPTER 25, 8 – 55.

    1. Thank you for your comment Felix. In God We Trust is a motto that this country was founded on and I could’t be happier or agree with it more. Unfortunately, personal rights have become the main concern of most American’s and human rights have been relegated to the back seat. Your comment indicates a complete misunderstanding of my message. That’s why it’s critically important that you understand exactly what I’m saying.
      The wealthy can invest 10%-15% of their assets into precious metals and have a protective nest egg when the dollar collapses or other negative market conditions prevail. But it is even more important for those without assets to have as much as possible invested in precious metals, because when calamity strikes paper assets will tank and precious metals will soar. History bears this out in every aspect, I’m not pontificating, simply reporting. That’s why I pray that God-fearing people have the courage to realize that self-preservation is an obligation and not an option. Precious metals have a history of long-term appreciation and shot-term protection, which is why whatever savings a citizen can muster are better invested in precious metals than any other financial instrument. The Weimar Republic was a great example of what I’m talking about. People burning their currency to keep warm pretty well sums up the lesson I’m trying to express. If you’ll read today’s entry http://www.goldjournal.com/2016/08/19/timing-in-the-market-is-everything/ you’ll understand why an urgent response and understanding is more important than ever before. “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Trust in God an do your best to take control.

  3. What i do not realize is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.
