A Logical Approach To Investment Strategy Development
Professional Coaches Study The Game And Their Opponents Successful coaches in any sport break down film to better understand the small details that lead to long-term success. The same principles can be applied to the financial markets, trading, and investing. Michael Lombardi, who worked with NFL coach Bill Belichick for five years in Cleveland, and then during the 2014 and 2015 seasons in New England, on attention to detail via The Ringer: Belichick treats every game like a Super Bowl; no

North Korea’s Nuclear Tests Could Trigger A Super Volcano
Following North Korea’s sixth nuclear test, nations across the globe are ramping up defense systems and bracing for the worst.  But it isn’t only radioactive risks scientists are worried about now. North Korea’s nuclear tests could disturb mountains in the Changbai range, along with the still-active Mt. Paektu, triggering the first eruption since 1903. “I was a member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defense which studied ways for NASA to defend the planet from asteroids and comets,” ex

THE STAGE IS BEING SET FOR A GLOBAL INFLATIONARY EVENT
The U.S. Federal Reserve has aggressively inflated our money supply during the past dozen years. It has performed this act in its effort to stimulate our economy and forestall a potentially damaging period of economic weakness. Prior to this time, and in ever increasing amounts as the years passed, dollar credits have hemorrhaged from our nation. This was largely the resu

Venezuela Has Officially Abandoned The Petrodollar – Does This Make War With Venezuela More Likely?
This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Venezuela is the 11th largest oil producing country in the entire world, and it has just announced that it is going to stop using the petrodollar. Most Americans don’t even know what the petrodollar is, but for those of you that do understand what I am talking about, this should send a chill up your spine. The petrodollar is one of the key pillars of the global financial system, and it allows us to live a far higher

With a Central Bank, Bank "Deregulation" Can Be a Bad Thing
Leading Federal Reserve policymaker Stanley Fischer has hit out at plans to unwind banking regulation, calling it a "terrible mistake."President Donald Trump and republican politicians have advocated the repeal of Dodd Frank, a major piece of post-crisis legislation, and the loosening of some capital and liquidity requirements in a bid to ease banks' ability to lend.In an interview with the Financial Times on August 16, 2017, Fischer said that loosening capital and liquidity requirements is dang

Bitcoin Bloodbath May Become A Massacre As THREE Chinese Exchanges Confirm Shutdowns and More Are Coming
The last couple of weeks have seen a virtual bloodbath in crypto currency trading with the majority of all publicly traded digital coins and tokens experiencing losses ranging from 20% to 98%. The carnage began when rumors swirled that China would limit ICO (Initial Coin Offerings) due to rampant fraud and uncertainty. The rumors quickly turned to reality, when earlier this week one of China’s largest centralized crypto exchanges announced that they would be closing their doors to domestic curre

Mises stands between us and 1984 
On this day in 1949 Yale University Press published Ludwig von Mises’s economic treatise, Human Action. Later in 1949 another book appeared, George Orwell’s 1984.  Almost everyone has at least heard of Orwell and 1984.  The same is unfortunately not true of Mises and Human Action. Both books are attached to their authors as if they were extended surnames.  Orwell is 1984, Mises is Human Action.   Among the many who’ve read it, 1984 is regarded as a premonition of what could happen if th

Outlook for the dollar price of gold
Now that gold has become overbought on Comex, the price is vulnerable to being trashed, yet again, by the too-big-to-fail banks. It is a familiar operation in gold futures markets, where speculators buying contracts protect themselves with stop-losses.All the TBTF banks need is a pause in the speculator’s buying and a little good news (bad for gold). Ideally, the active contract will be running into maturity, so the speculators are forced to put up or shut up: in other words, sell the contract,

Irma Veers West, Heads for Tampa: 5.6 Million Asked to Evacuate, Largest Evacuation in History, Full-Scale Emergency in Keys
The hurricane models now suggest Irma will veer west, missing a direct hit on Miami. Instead, expectations are the storm will track up the West coast of Florida towards Tampa. Winds died down to 125 MPH over Cuba, making Irma category 3, but the models expect Irma to be category 4 when it strikes Southern Florida. Here is the latest from AccuWeather as of 11:32 EDT. After blasting the northern Caribbean, deadly Hurricane Irma will turn toward the United States, unleashing destructive winds, fl

Who’s Going To Eat The Losses?
Unsustainable. Many more people need to understand what that word really means, and how it applies to pretty much everything in the current human living arrangement. Especially the so-called 'developed' nations. Here’s the dictionary definition: Let's take these three definitions one at a time. First: our entire economic model, which dependent on borrowing at a faster rate than income (GDP) grows, is something that simply cannot be maintained at its current rate or level. Check. Second: depleti

Blowing Off The Roof
Of all the absurd Washington pantomimes none has been as reliably entertaining and maddening as the annual debates to raise the debt ceiling. Although the outcome was always a foregone conclusion (the ceiling would be raised), the excitement came when fiscal conservatives bemoaned the perils of runaway debt and “attempted” to exact spending restrictions through threats “to shut down the government,” (which often led to news coverage of tourists being turned away from national parks.) On the othe

Major Gold-Stock Breakouts
The gold stocks are off to the races again, with big gains mounting.  They just staged major breakouts, shattering a vexing consolidation that had trapped them for an entire year.  Such momentum early in gold’s strong season is a very-bullish portent.  As higher prices improve both technicals and sentiment, buying begets more buying.  With gold-stock prices still quite low in secular terms, their upside remains huge. Gold stocks are a small contrarian sector wi

GOLD HAS BROKEN OUT – DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND
The coming gold and silver moves in the next few months will really surprise most investors as market volatility increases substantially. It seems right now that “All (is) quiet on the Western Front” as Erich-Maria Remarque wrote about WWI. Ten years after the Great Financial Crisis started and nine years after the Lehman collapse, it seems that the world is in better shape than ever. Stocks are at historical highs, interest rates at historical lows, house prices are booming again and consumers

Silver: The Red-Headed, Freckle-Faced Stepchild
In grade school, I had a classmate named Craig McVeigh who was easily one of the most maligned kids in the school because as a big lad standing a full hand width taller than anyone and weighing thirty pounds more than anyone, he was never allowed to play in any sports that involved physical contact. Craig was fair, with bright, curly red hair with freckles adorning most of his exposed skin. Most of all, this lumbering giant of a boy was decidedly unlucky. He couldn't catch a break with a butterf

When the United States Owned Most of the Gold on Earth
Few Americans know that, just after World War II, the United States owned most of the gold bullion on earth – about 22,000 metric tonnes. In fact by 1945, it owned over 80% of the gold held by nation-states and central banks – an impressive display of economic power. Now it owns just over 8000 metric tonnes, which repr
