The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

9.8.2018 - Elon Musk smokes weed. So what? Bookmark

Hey everyone, the big news Friday was that Elon Musk was on a pod cast with Joe Rogan and he was sipping whiskey and took a toke on a pot blunt. The financial stations were going nuts asking if he should be doing such things while running his companies. But I have a better question. 

The podcast was over 2 hours long and he covered some pretty interesting stuff. His view on how dangerous AI could become is what those stations should have focused on, not whether he should be on camera taking a hit.  I share his view of AI, I think it has the ability to be a very scary development.  Go read today's newsletter, it's worth the time. 

 

In the market commentary, we are trying to figure out if the news about more tariffs is what sank the market, or was the market willing to sink and needed an excuse?  It's a good question.  Give it a read. 

9.1.2018 - Labor Day, Mom and Thank You Bookmark

Hello everyone, and welcome to your Labor Day weekend. Remember that the markets are indeed closed on Monday. 

In today's letter, I express a personal struggle that I just went through with my Mom. At 89, she's not quite the spry old gal she once was, and after a short hospital stay, she's needing some time in a rehab. But the five days between the hospital and going to rehab really opened my eyes to a lot. I was simply not prepared. 

 

so I talk about that, and then in the market commentary, we consider the idea that maybe September will bring us something of a fade. While it's October that produces the big crashes, September is generally the worst month of the year. So, we'll chat about that.

8.25.2018 - Free Financial Newsletter is up Bookmark

Hello all, the Sunday edition of the  Financial Intelligence Report is up a day early. In the General commentary we talk about the problem of posting what you might think of as innocent fun on your facebook page, could come back to haunt you. Time and time again, employers and law enforcement has used peoples social media pages to look for "bad things" they've posted. 

 

It's worse if you're a concealed weapons permit holder and you have to unfortunately shoot someone. They will scan everything you've ever posted to see if they can make a case for you being a "killer".  

 

In the market commentary, we discuss the current market, where the S&P is perched at all time highs. We give the 3 examples of what could happen next, but then we explore all the buy backs, the central bank intervention, and question how far this might go. It's pretty good reading, if it does nothing but open your eyes. 

 

Ya know all these stock buy backs we see? Did you know that until 1982 they were illegal? Well they were, they were considered a "market manipulation". Now we see almost a TRILLION dollars worth of them!  So give the market section a read, it's pretty interesting. 

8.18.2018 Why Gold is Falling Bookmark

For months I've been suggesting that it's the Chinese that are manipulating the price of Gold lower, to offset the devaluation of the Yuan. While it sounds like a conspiracy theory, it was actually pretty logical. Well, I discovered an article by Jim Rickards that wraps it up and puts a bow on it. 

 

I have reprinted the entire article and it perfectly describes what I've been saying about the Yuan, the SDR's and Gold. It's an interesting piece and by all means you need to read it. It's on the site now, under the category Free Newsletter on the right side of the page. 

8.15.2018 - Free Investing Newsletter is up Bookmark

Hello all, the new newsletter is posted on the site. In this one, we chat about some of the effects on the human body that the roll out of 5G might have. Yes that's controversial, but it makes an interesting read. Why are so many people depressed? Why are so many people doing irrational things? Could it be that all the millions of cell phone signals flying through our brains 24 hours a day has overwhelmed our natural defenses? I believe so and that's only 4G. 

 

In the market section, we ponder the market's next move. The chop lately has been horrific as even today the DOW was down over 300 points at one moment, and ended the day down just 135. Could we be entering a period of sideways  chop, bouncing between the highs and the 50 day moving averages again? It's possible. Give it a read, it's good stuff. 

8.1.2018 - How Not to get Shot Bookmark

I was going to use the free Investment newsletter to talk about, well, investing and all things market today. But I had to veer off that path, and try and give you guys some tips on how not to get yourself shot. It seems that on Monday out in Colorado, a police officer shot a man. The problem was, the man was the 'good guy" that had just shot a home invader that broke into his home. 

So the general commentary is how not to get yourself shot. Then in the market commentary, we talk about this insane market where one day there's tariff news, then "restarting trade talks" then more tariff news, etc. It's manic as it follow the headlines up and down. But we also talk about some of the economic indicators. Housing is getting soft, copper is plunging, big tech isn't doing as well as it was, etc. 

 

You can make the case that the market's in trouble. 

7.25.2018 - Market goes Boom! Bookmark

The Wednesday evening edition of the Free Investing Newsletter is up, and you're going to like it. Why? It's considerably shorter than normal!  In a massive mistake, I left the actual article that was scheduled for tonight on my office Computer and never forwarded it to myself here at my wife's office. Since I have to pick her up at the airport, I can't run back up there and send it. So, I cobbled some ideas together. 

 

One of them is this: The EU has decided today to work a bit closer with Trump on trade, maybe lowering taxes and tariffs. If that catches on, they're going to be very happy. We could see that carry the market momentum to new highs. Wow, I didn't think that would happen, but it's looking possible now. 

 

Give it a quick read, and then on Sunday we're going to publish an interesting "back and forth" about how it could happen. Or not. 

 

 

7.4.2018 - Happy 4th of July! Bookmark

The 4th of July is when we celebrate the Declaration of Independence. But did you know that it was actually created on July 2nd? in today's free investment newsletter, we discuss the reason behind the Declaration. Was it to alert King George? Was it a rallying cry for the colonists to get behind? No, actually it was neither of them specifically, but it was both of them and something much more important that got that paper signed. 

Check out today's free investing newsletter and see the "twist" that most people aren't aware of. It's pretty interesting and hey, the price is right. 

6.30.2018 - The latest Article is now Posted Bookmark

In a twist of the time/space continuum, somehow the Sunday edition of the free investing newsletter is actually posted on Saturday evening. Yes folks, it's there in all its glory. And, what prey-tell is in this issue? CIVIL WAR. What??? Yes, you read right. Is the US barreling towards a Civil war?

 

The fight between the truly fringe left and the moderate to far right people is escalating daily. Protests, shout downs, following politicians into Movie theaters and restaurants, etc. Day after day, there's some unhinged lunatic communistic leftist, threatening Republicans and even threatening to assassinate the President. This isn't a fad, this started over 2 years ago and is still building momentum. 

 

So, we talk about that in the general commentary, and then in the market commentary, we mention things such as the giant intra-day reversals we've seen lately. They're really stunning. Wednesday for example, the DOW started the session with a gain of 285 points, yet it ended the day RED by 165. That's some stunning turn around. What's it mean? Why that sort of volatility? We chat about that and more, so please give the letter a read, it's good stuff. 

6.27.2018 - Field Day Revisited Bookmark

Hi Everyone, 

In today's free investing newsletter, we start off with a review of the weekend's "field day" for ham radio operators. As you might or might not know, when there's a serious emergency such as a hurricane, often it is only the short wave operators that have the ability to communicate. Cell phones and land lines are often down for days and even weeks, but a proper short wave set up can always operate. 

So this past weekend the wife and I went to a local club to see how they set things up in the case of an emergency, and we had a blast talking to the people and checking out their equipment. 

 

In the market commentary, we talk about this manic market, where it can start off the day with the DOW gaining 285 points and end the day in the RED by 165. For 6 solid months now the market has bounced, dropped, popped, dipped, and gone totally nowhere. Now we have the DOW below its most important moving averages, and the S&P has failed its own 50 day. Is the end near? Are we going to bounce, or see a roll over? We discuss that and more.
