Gold, Silver, the Vegas Play, and More

Today’s letter is going to take a bit of a twist from our regular Sunday letters.  Not long ago I mentioned our “Vegas Play” in one of the free newsletters, and it caused a lot of buzz.  When you send out a letter that goes to tens of thousands of folks, you will get praise mail, hate mail and everything in between. Well, I got push back from some saying I was just sensationalizing a lucky play to drum up more subscribers. So with that in mind, I want to do a bit of history searching, and see if that’s really what I was doing.

I have been a precious metals bull in Gold since 2000. I pounded the table on it, and even said in one particular newsletter that “I think we’ll see gold at 1000 dollars an ounce within ten years”.  At the time I wrote that, gold was 295 dollars an ounce. I was soundly mocked and laughed at as a lunatic.  As Gold rose higher and higher I continued to tell folks that I was still buying it and it still looked great.

Jobs For Who?

On Friday we got the non farm payroll report. Estimates were for a gain of 183,000 jobs. But when the number hit we didn’t print 183K jobs, we printed 271,000 blowing away even the most bullish estimates. Inside the report it was all rainbows and unicorns. We saw the unemployment rate fall to 5%, and we see wages rose an astounding 2.5%.  A better report you simply couldn’t make up!!  In fact that’s true, because they made this one up, and it was the best they could do.

You’ve Been Double Crossed

 

We face a dichotomy. It certainly doesn’t get much press and frankly most people never put two and two together, but I believe it is something we need to at least give some thought to.

 

We know the Central Banks of the world have inflated bubbles of enormous size in both bonds and assets, especially equities. Why have they done that? Well the common thinking is that they’ve done that to ward off economic disasters and keep economies moving higher.  Okay, let’s go with that for a minute.

The End

Pretty harsh words they are…”the end”.  It usually means you’ve finished the movie or finished the book. But it also means you’ve finished “something” and in our case the something is the great Nixonian error of “let it be”  fiat money.  The end of that particular experiment is indeed nearing its end.

One of the issues that a person like myself has is that because we are not “widely” known, my voice has little sway over public opinion. If you’re a TV star, or movie star, or basket ball player for the Heat, anything you say will be followed by a tremendous amount of people “backing you up”.  The most obvious examples of that are fashion trends. When a few Hollywood “A” lister’s started wearing “ugg” boots for example, there was such a public rush for them, the company “ran out” and had to increase production by over 400% to keep up with demand.

Big Money and Easter

(Rich and Wealthy aren’t necessarily the same)

In many circles this is the most holy week of all. From Palm Sunday through “Spy Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and Easter itself, this particular time of the year is incredibly important to millions of people.

Because of its solemn importance to so many, I’m not going to go off about the elites, the criminal bankers, the crooked politicians. I’m not going to diatribe about provoking Russia, endless mindless wars, race problems, gay activists, or any of a million other topics just ripe to discuss. No. We’re not going to talk about “bad things” and what you have to do about it.  If you’re looking for a rant, stay tuned for next week because I have some things to “go off” on that need discussing. But for today, in the spirit of the season, I want to talk about being rich. Do you need big money to be rich?

They’ve All Been Wrong

Over the course of human history there’ve been quite a few people that have called for the end of the world, the end of civilization, the end of humanity, you name it. Yet here we are on March 24 and the sun came up, folks ate breakfast and for the most part, life goes on.

Likewise there’s been no shortage of folks calling for all manner of doom and gloom over the years. I cannot count on both hands how many people have called for financial collapse, global financial Armageddon, and populations reduced to eating bugs in their front yards to survive. Yet this morning the traffic on Rt. 75here in Sarasota is horrendous as people flock to the beaches, the bars, the eateries and to work.

10.8.2014 Market Plunges Again! Bookmark

Back on Sunday, September 21, we did something unusual, we devoted the entire newsletter to the market. Why? It was giving us all kinds of signs that the market might be topping out in the short term. So we presented all the reasons why, from the high valuations, to the insanity of the Ali-baba IPO, to the confirmed "Hindenburg Omens" , to the crashing commodities index, to you name it.  Here's a couple quotes from that letter...
