Mornin' all, welcome to a new day.

Yesterday afternoon looked a lot like so many that have come before. Down and sloppy for most of the day, with a push towards the flat line in the final hour

Global Control?
 
Before we get into today’s chat, I want to mention something. On Wednesday I did a piece about preparing for the possibility of a disaster, where in your tap water is no longer available. Many don’t understand that in a true disaster, often the pumps are shut down, OR, there’s no power to operate them. So finding and filtering water is a very important part of being prepared.

2.20.2015 Will Dane's Unpeg? Bookmark

Not too long ago, the Swiss shocked the world by removing the peg to the Euro, which caused some wicked currency fluctuations for over a week. Along the way, many nations has slashed their interest rates to 0, and some have gone as far as "negative rates".  Now we see the Dane's talking about how they might see the need for  "capital controls" as they too have a harder and harder time keeping their currency stable in relation to the Euro.  Their currency is in free fall this morning, despite the denials that they would actually have to go that route.

NOTE>>  Because of overwhelming response to the options tutorial that we wrote a few weeks ago, we’ve decided to do a webinar next Saturday at noon.  The webinar will focus on a handful of major topics, such as using options as a hedge, how to use them to mitigate volatility, we will cover gold, oil, stocks, plus options for leverage and as a hedge. The online webinar will run for a minimum of two hours, and generally end up doing 3.   I invite you all to come and participate in this event. I’ll personally be doing a large part of the options training, so if you’re one of those folks that have been afraid of options, or really don’t understand them, this is THE event you want to come see.

I have a nice “coupon” for all you InvestYourself readers. The Webinar will be 85.00 for the general public, but if you use my promo code, you get in for 75.00. Here’s the link…

1.16.2015 Swiss Fall Out Bookmark

The move by the Swiss National Bank to remove the peg from the Euro, has tossed a lot of the global currency markets into a frenzy. Already we've seen two currency brokerages go bust and there's certainly more to come. FXCM has been halted since the pre market as they too try and figure out if they can remain solvent.

Yesterday I opened the day by saying we might have to tighten up our seatbelts. Today it looks like we might have to snug up our shoulder straps too.....

The fall out from the Swiss decision yesterday to unleash the peg from the Euro is still sweeping around the globe and the fall out is already starting. I mentioned to you all that this was going to create issues, and sure enough we are hearing of two currency brokers already that have declared insolvency over this. There will be more to come.

1.15.2015 The Swiss Go Nuts Bookmark

Overnight, the Swiss national bank pulled two incredible moves...

First they cut their overnight rates to -0.75%. Yes you read that right. If you're an institution and you place money in the Swiss National bank it's going to cost you about a percent for the honor of doing so. But that wasn't nearly as "wild" as cutting the peg to the Euro. What they did there was remove the ceiling that the Franc could extend above the Euro, and it instantly soared higher on the news.

We might need to tighten the seatbelts today.....

Last night the futures continued higher and higher. It looked like the "double bottom" I mentioned in the Newsletter last night was holding and the traders were willing to put in a snapback form of a rally. But then something happened....

The Swiss National bank decided out of the clear blue that they would 1) cut interest rates to NEGATIVE 0.75% and 2) they would remove the ceiling caps on their currency in regard to its relation to the Euro. 

12.3.2014 Is It Time For Gold? Bookmark

The interesting reversal in gold on Sunday night was really something special to watch. While the Swiss decided they like fiat currency more than a gold backed currency because the Central bankers scared them to death about voting yes, gold recovered it's 35 dollar drop and went positive Monday. Then it held up pretty well Tuesday. So is this the start of something we should take note of?

12.1.2014 Post Holiday Reality Bookmark

The Swiss voted no on bringing their gold home and backing their currency with a 20% weighting. The rich hated the idea, as did the Central banks and they pushed hard to frighten everyone into believing that printing money out of thin air is the only way they can deal with the European Union's woes. So they scared the population into shooting down the initiative. I suspect that in the future, the Swiss people will lament that decision.
