Jeffrey Nichols of Rosland Capital, returns to the show with his latest insights on the precious metals sector. A new uptrend suggests the multi-year selloff may be reversing course. With signs of sluggish economic output, our guest suggests that Fed policymakers could back-peddle on the new interest rate policy, reversing the upward course, eventually moving rates into negative territory, similar to the ECB and BOJ, for the first time in national history. The inflation adjusted or real interest rate may already be negative, depending on the source. In addition, investors should brace for either a new wave of QE or a novel approach to boost economic growth. But even if the Fed maintains a hawkish stance, gold will likely rise anyway, due to supply shortages. Gold could soon eclipse the 2010 zenith, ascending above $2,000 per ounce as soon as the end of next year, yielding 100% profits to investors who accumulate the metal at currently discounted prices. If our guest's forecast is correct, the yellow metal could climb as high as $3,000-$5,000, within seven years.

CEO of Brazil Resources (BRI.V), Amir Adnani makes his show debut - Mr. Adnani has a reputation for moving projects rapidly into production. Fortune magazine lists Mr. Adnani in the prestigious ranks of “40 Under 40, Ones to Watch” North American executives. One top investment fund owns 17% of BRI shares - legendary precious metals investor, Rick Rule of Sprott Asset Management. Mr. Adnani has partnered with Mario Garnero of Brazilinvest, the top merchant bank and financial partner in Brazil. His success strategy involves a two prong approach: identifying exceptional partners and employees as well as acquiring discounted properties. As a BRICS nation, Brazil is the eighth largest economy in the world where officials have nurtured and fostered a mining friendly reputation, including a reasonable gold royalty rate of 1% (The World Bank, 2015). Two key mines are located in northern Brazil, the Sao Jorge project and the Cachoeira project. The Sao Jorge project is 100% owned, includes paved highway access, a nearby workforce, and a hydroelectric power source. In addition:
• The property is located near major gold deposits,
• Is in the proximity of an operational mine,
• Government incentives include a 75% reduction in income tax during the first ten years of the project.

The second project, Cachoeira benefits from a solid infrastructure and close a nearby highway, three deposits with near surface mineralization, previously examined and consolidated by major producers: Kinross and Luna Gold Corp. Brazil Resources has a uranium ore property in Alaska - the Whistler project has the unique benefit of $10 million in previous exploration by major firms in the industry, providing a treasure map left by earlier explorers. In addition, the geological strata share similarities with key uranium discoveries.

Summary:

  • Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group (BMG), notes the Tobin Q ratio and the Shiller index indicate a high probability of a 50% stock market correction.

  • The scenario presents an interesting contrarian opportunity for inventors to exchange overvalued stocks for undervalued gold.

  • He compares the current PMs correction to the late 1970's, when gold ascended by 750%.

  • If the prediction unfolds in similar fashion a gold price of approximately $8,000 - 10,000 could unfold.

  • Our guest makes the startling revelation that gold performs best during periods of economic deflation.

  • A key study spanning 300 years of financial data revealed that gold soars in purchasing power relative to most alternatives amid monetary contractions.

  • Our guest chiefly recommends bullion PMs, which provide the best safe haven characteristics in a world awash in paper assets.

Chris welcomes Nick Barisheff, Chairman of Bullion Management Group (BMG);
he cites the Tobin Q ratio and the Shiller index, which indicate an impending equities market correction of up to 50%. The scenario presents an interesting contrarian opportunity for inventors to exchange overvalued stocks for undervalued, gold. He compares the current PMs correction to the late 1970's, when gold ascended by 750%. If the prediction unfolds in similar fashion, a gold price of approximately $8,000 - 10,000 is possible. Our guest makes the startling revelation that gold performs best during periods of economic deflation when compared to inflation. A key study spanning 300 years of financial data revealed how gold soars in purchasing power relative to virtually every alternative. So analysts have unwittingly ignored one of the most appealing safe haven characteristics of the yellow metal. Our guest chiefly recommends PMs bullion, which offers the best safe haven characteristics in a world awash in paper assets.

Summary:

  • Dr. Burton Malkiel, Professor from Princeton University returns to the show to discus the 11th edition of his magnum opus, A Random Walk Down Wall Street.
  • His outlook for 2016 is somber - equities and most asset classes seem overvalued.
  • The CAPE P/E ratio, currently near 23 in the US, which indicates US shares are overpriced relative to global shares, on a historical basis.
  • When valuations are extended, diversification is most necessary, buffering the impact of increased volatility.
  • Although the professor agrees with the host that 2016 will be a year of Fed rate hikes, tame economic conditions will likely hold policymakers in check.
  • The idea of market unpredictability is comparable to quantum mechanics, where Einstein could not accept quantum theory.
  • Instead of predicting price outcomes, probability theory facilitates enhanced portfolio return.
  • Even the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett has publicly denounced active investing, instructing his heirs to engage in passive index investing.
  • The professor offers his favorite index fund with a low expense ratio, the ETF: (VTI), with a remarkable expense ratio of 1/20th of one percent, 0.0005%.
  • Using such low expense ETFs, the typical individual investor can easily outperform virtually all top money managers and hedge funds.
  • Adding bonds to stock index funds is advisable.

Dr. Burton Malkiel, Professor Emeritus in Economics from Princeton University returns to the show to discus the 11th edition to his magnum opus, A Random Walk Down Wall Street. His market outlook for 2016 is somber - equities and most asset classes seem overvalued given the CAPE P/E ratio currently near 25 in the US. US shares are overpriced relative to global shares, on a historical basis. Nevertheless, when valuations are extended, diversification is most necessary, buffering the impact of increased volatility. In addition, economic conditions are currently more stable than noted by most in the extreme blogosphere - he sees no collapse on the horizon. Although the professor agrees with the host that 2016 will be a year of Fed rate hikes, tame economic conditions will likely hold policymakers in check, limiting the extent of their operations. The idea of market unpredictability is comparable to quantum mechanics, as Einstein could not accept quantum theory, his colleagues embraced the idea, creating a vibrant new field, which culminated in the Silicon Valley revolution, computing and the internet . In similar fashion, instead of predicting price outcomes, probability theory facilitates enhanced portfolio return. Even the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett has publicly denounced active investing, instructing his heirs to engage in passive index investing. The professor offers his favorite index fund with a low expense ratio, the ETF: (VTI), with a remarkable expense ratio of 1/20th of one percent, 0.0005%. Using such low expense ETFs, the typical individual-investor can easily outperform virtually all top money managers and hedge funds. Adding bonds to stock index funds is advisable.

  • Our guest expects the Fed to backpedal with the new rate hike policy, with the announcement of a new wave of monetary expansion this year, QE 4.
  • Policymakers are pushing on a string - monetary expansion is far less affective with each installment.
  • Although the equities indexes are being buoyed by a few key shares, the majority of stocks are in bear market territory.
  • Dr. Faber questions the veracity of official US economic figures, noting a high likelihood of a recession in early 2016 despite official indications to the contrary.
  • After years of stagnation, gold shares are outperforming most sectors, as their relative value encourages wise investors to allocate funds into the XAU.
  • Dr. Faber recently added to his gold position, using weakness as an opportunity to procure sound money at a discount.
  • The storage cost for physical gold bullion is low making the yellow metal an ideal asset to outperform other commodities amid a 2016 rebound rally.

  • The next decline will require the formation of an entirely new currency.

Chairman of SchiffGold.com, Peter Schiff returns to the show with dire warnings of a looming currency crisis, that could make the previous "Great Recession" seem tame in comparison. The multi-year bull market in stocks may be viewed in retrospect as a Fed fomented bubble, which crushes million of retirement portfolios. Artificially low rates inspired large corporations to repurchase their shares via cheap debt, which can only end badly for investors. Although US retail sales are solid, better leading economic indicators like the Dallas Manufacturing Index and the US Weekly Leading Index are rolling over (Figures 1.1. & 1.2.). The dollar was on the verge of collapse during the credit crisis, but was saved by the bailout - our guest is convinced that the next decline will require the formation of an entirely new currency. His work indicates that eventually, momentum will return to the gold market, making $100+ days commonplace culminating $5,000 gold.

  • Russian and Chinese firms present appealing investment opportunities.
  • Jim Rogers holds short positions in US shares, in anticipation of further volatility on the heels of the Fed rate hikes.

Chris welcomes back Jim Rogers from his Singapore office, who says a financial crisis is imminent. His largest currency position remains the US dollar, which will likely rally into a bubble which eventually implodes in spectacular fashion. Although not a safe haven, the US dollar seems impervious relative to most global currencies, for the moment. He continues to monitor the gold market for signs of capitulation, to add to his stockpile. Russian and Chinese firms present appealing investment opportunities. Jim Rogers holds short positions in US shares, in anticipation of further volatility on the heels of the Fed rate hikes and more hikes expected in the new year. If a meaningful correction does not come to pass and shares blast to new records perhaps doubling from current levels as top analysts have forecasted, the final economic endgame could follow, leading to a crisis of epic proportions. The guest takes interest in a contrarian investment - the zinc market is off over 90%, making ETF shares (ZINC) a potential turn around candidate in the coming weeks / months / years.

Summary:

  • Chris welcomes back Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics, the subject of a new riveting documentary The Forecaster (2015).
  • Watch the theatrical trailer video (Figure 1.1.).
  • At the heart of his investing methodology are international money flows.
  • The recent FOMC rate hike could actually be a boon for US equities indexes, as investors direct funds from sluggish international zones.
  • The discussion includes the threat posed by a cash-less society, an economic ontology gaining momentum domestically and worldwide.
  • The Forecaster shares his stock market forecast: expect 26,000 - 27,000, with a potential for 40,000 on the Dow Jones Industrials followed by extreme volatility into 2017-2020.
  • The dialogue returns to the domestic economy - up to 70% of the national debt stems from interest on debt.
  • Westerners could learn much from the economic miracle in Japan - following WWII, Japan became the 2nd largest economy worldwide.
  • Since then, China has followed its own path, capturing the title of second largest superpower by building up the infrastructure.
  • The chat concludes with an interesting discussion on the nature of market forecasting, expert systems and genetic algorithms, useful for improved prognostication.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. Chris welcomes back Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics, the subject of a new riveting documentary The Forecaster (2015), which sold out in theaters across Europe - watch the theatrical trailer video (Figure 1.1.). At the heart of his investing methodology are international money flows - his models suggest when policymakers dictate slowing economic conditions by raising rates, geopolitical instability inevitably follows. By holding rates artificially low, the banking system cannot effectively direct interest benefits to borrowers. Nevertheless, his work indicates that the recent FOMC rate hike could actually be a boon for US equities indexes, as investors direct funds from sluggish international zones in pursuit of higher US rates. The discussion includes the threat posed by a cash-less society, an economic ontology gaining momentum domestically and worldwide. The Forecaster shares his stock market forecast: expect 26,000 - 27,000, with a potential for 40,000 on the Dow Jones Industrials followed by extreme volatility into 2017-2020. The dialogue returns to the domestic economy - up to 70% of the national debt stems from interest on debt, which could have been directed instead to productive uses, such as the fragile infrastructure and improved education. Westerners could learn much from the economic miracle in Japan - following WWII, the nation of few natural resources and a crushed industrial base, rose to economic prominence, the 2nd largest economy worldwide by importing most of the required resources as well of as the efforts of well meaning policymakers who understood the importance of supporting industry, business and the entrepreneurial spirit. Since then, China has followed its own path, capturing the title of second largest superpower by building up the infrastructure, instead of just accumulating massive debt level. The dialogue concludes with an interesting discussion on the nature of market forecasting, expert systems and genetic algorithms, useful for improved prognostication.

His latest NY Times Bestseller, Get What's Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security, outlines must know tips on how the Social Security law has changed. Key secrets require action before April 30, 2016. If you or your spouse or friends / family turns 66 by then, this is a must read stocking stuffer. What will you or your parents do, if they live longer than expected? Although a long-life can be a blessing, without proper planning, the longevity risk and the financial strain could be overwhelming. The professor outlines simple steps to increase monthly benefits by at least 6%, which can translate into tens of thousands of additional benefits per year and hundreds of thousands over a long retirement. He shares an example from the book of a 63 year old lady who suspended retirement funding and wished to restart benefits a few years later at a much higher rate. However, she was given false information on several phone calls and visits to the office, noting she was no longer eligible - the mistake nearly cost her the entire retirement benefits. The Professor suggests taking your documentation to the local office and presenting your proof as evidence. In addition, spousal support is available in many disability cases, often overlooked due to the shock / trauma of the event. He created a bookmark worthy website titled, Maximize My Social Security.com, which includes the required software for maximizing benefits.

Nevertheless, for the first time in years, our guest has turned somewhat bearish on US shares, due in part to a recession in the domestic manufacturing sector. His outlook is the most bearish in years - the forecast calls for no further new records in US shares. In addition, the recent ETF scandal made investors question their portfolio allocation - 40% of stock market volume stems from ETF trades. A few of his favorite portfolio candidates offer growth at a reasonable price (low relative P/E ratios) that carry solid dividends including, Costco (COST), among several interesting opportunities.

Recap.:

  • Best selling author / mathematician / economist, Dr. Leeb and the host discuss a disturbing trend in the domestic economy.
  • Despite the lowest Jobless Claims numbers in decades, economic growth remains anemic.
  • Given the 75% odds of an FOMC rate hike at the December meeting, the first in nearly a decade, the strong dollar and resulting higher rates will continue to put pressure on the mortgage / housing sector as well as the general economy.
  • The combination will push the already struggling economy passed the tipping point, into full blown recession.
  • As predicted by the Dr. and the host on this show for months, the Yuan finally gained reserve currency status this week, changing the global monetary structure forever.
  • Dr. Leeb's work indicates that the inclusion of the Yuan in the SDR currency basket could cap the Greenback advance and encourage gold bulls.
  • The duo agree that the economy is facing a flock of black-swan like anomalies such as: negative interest rates, global debt explosion, and rehypothecation, to name a few.
  • Once the rate hike threat passes, both agree that commodities, oil and the precious metals will likely ascend to new bull market records.
  • In addition, China has unveiled a new crude oil market index, which may become the de facto benchmark worldwide, potentially marking the end of the Petro / Dollar era and a new period of Petro / Yuan dominance.
  • Dr. Leeb discusses his meeting and correspondences with World Chess Champion Gary Kasparov.

Best selling author / mathematician / economist, Dr. Leeb and the host discuss a disturbing trend in the domestic economy - despite the lowest Jobless Claims numbers in decades, economic growth remains anemic. Given the 75% odds of an FOMC rate hike at the December meeting, the first in nearly a decade, the strong dollar and resulting higher rates will continue to put pressure on the mortgage / housing sector as well as the general economy. The combination will push the already struggling economy passed the tipping point, into full blown recession. As predicted by the Dr. and the host on this show for months, the Yuan finally gained reserve currency status this week, changing the global monetary structure forever. Dr. Leeb's work indicates that the inclusion of the Yuan in the SDR currency basket could cap the Greenback advance and encourage gold bulls. The duo agree that anomalies offer the best insights for solving problems in complex systems - the economy is facing a flock of black-swan like anomalies such as: negative interest rates, global debt explosion, and rehypothecation, to name a few. However, once the rate hike threat passes, both agree that commodities, oil and the precious metals will likely ascend to new bull market records. In addition, China has unveiled a new crude oil market index, which may become the de facto benchmark, worldwide, potentially marking the end of the Petro / Dollar era and a new period of Petro / Yuan dominance. Although both the guest / host concur that the US is their favorite nation on earth, not since WWII has the US faced an economic / military rival - the new ontology will cause major imbalances in the geoeconomy, resulting in a reshuffling of influence from the US and NATO, to China and the rest of the BRICS nations. Dr. Leeb discusses his meeting and correspondences with World Chess Champion Gary Kasparov, making him the envy of many chess nerds, the host included.

Summary:

  • Chris welcomes Dr. Martenson from PeakProsperity.com - Dr. Martenson categorizes capital into eight essential types in his new must read book, Prosper!

  • The good doctor is concerned about a potentially risky period of economic deflation, were insufficient money And credit are available to sustain high debt levels, with as much as $200 trillion in default risk.
  • The event will lead to central bank intervention by way of massive monetary stimulus, such as QE to infinity.
  • Although paper promises, such as stocks And bonds, remain the investment du jour, the deflationary event will reduce paper claims to their intrinsic value: zero.
  • There are too many paper claims And too few assets to back them - eventually the pendulum will swing back from the current extreme to the other apex.
  • Wealth safe havens will regain their place as the de facto investment classes, such as gold, silver, precious metals shares, oil And commodities.

    The discussion includes the challenges facing modern medicine And the viable alternatives that everyone can use to their benefit.

  • The Dr. notes that 80-90% of physical ailments begin with inflammation, in the kitchen, mirroring the thoughts of renowned physician, Dr. Mark Hyman.

  • By identifying a few key dietary changes / lifestyle improvements, an effective course of treatment unfolds, free of charge And without any side-effects. The plan involves a two prong approach.

Chris welcomes Dr. Martenson from PeakProsperity.com - Dr. Martenson categorizes capital into eight essential types in his new must read book, Prosper!, including wealth capital, social capital And health capital. The good doctor concerned about a potentially risky period of economic deflation, were insufficient money And credit are available to sustain high debt levels, with as much as $200 trillion at risk of default. The event will lead to central bank intervention by way of massive monetary stimulus, such as QE to infinity. Although paper promises, such as stocks And bonds, remain the investment du jour, the deflationary event will reduce paper claims to their intrinsic value: zero, as Voltaire noted. There are too many paper claims And too few assets to back them - eventually the pendulum will swing back from the current extreme to the other apex. Given the sea change of events never faced before, including negative interest rates, rehypothecation, unimaginable debt levels, saber rattling, soaring poverty levels, wealth safe havens will regain their place as the de facto investment classes, such as farmland, secure real estate, gold, silver, precious metals shares, oil And commodities.

The discussion includes the challenges facing modern medicine And the viable alternatives that everyone can use to their benefit. The Dr. notes that 80-90% of physical ailments begin with inflammation, in the kitchen, mirroring the thoughts of renowned physician, Dr. Mark Hyman. Modern medicine arguably began in Greece with Hypocrites: "Let your medicine be your food, and your food be your medicine." By identifying a few key dietary changes / lifestyle improvements, an effective course of treatment unfolds, free of charge and without any side-effects. The plan involves a two prong approach:

1. Exercise: most people sit at a desk or behind a steering wheel throughout the day with little or no exercise. However, recent peer-reviewed journal articles find that standing up and walking each hour, every hour, even for just a few minutes, is more effective than jogging a marathon and combats diabetes, obesity and other serious chronic diseases. By setting a computer or iPhone timer to 60 minute intervals, a brisk walk becomes a welcomed break in the daily routine.

2. Diet: by eliminating all forms of sugar from the diet including corn syrup and fructose, blood glucose levels can be much better regulated naturally, reducing inflammation, lowering insulin resistance and resetting the pancreas. In addition, veggie burgers, nuggets, bacon and patties have been improved in taste / quality so substantially, that meat can easily be eliminated from the diet by even the most ardent aficionado.

Summary:

  • Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and editor / columnist for the Wall Street Journal / Business Week returns.
  • His work indicates a collapse of the national economic "House of cards," is imminent, no longer a question of if, but merely a matter of time.
  • A few leading banks carry more debt individually than the entire world's output: global GDP (GWP: $76 trillion), according to the World Bank.
  • In order to stop the doomed system falling into a deflationary sink-hole, interest rates have been held low to the detriment of retiree's.
  • Unlike all previous economic recoveries the latest has coincided with a declining labor force participation rate.
  • His work indicates that the gold market is rigged, to maintain US dollar hegemony.
  • Eventually the process will be reversed, resulting in much higher yellow metal prices.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and editor / columnist for the Wall Street Journal / Business Week returns to the show. His work indicates a collapse of the national economic "House of cards," is imminent, no longer a question of if, but merely a matter of time until the foundation crumbles. A few leading banks carry more debt individually than the entire world's output: global GDP (GWP: $76 trillion), according to the World Bank. In order to stop the doomed system falling into a deflationary sink-hole, interest rates have been held low to the detriment of retiree's dependent on interest income. Unlike all previous economic recoveries the latest has coincided with a declining labor force participation rate, indicative of a discrepancy between the reported positive employment numbers and reality. His work indicates that the gold market is rigged, to maintain US dollar hegemony. Eventually the process will be reversed, resulting in much higher yellow metal prices.
