Usually, these are direct threats to your wealth. Think a stock market crash or bond market collapse. But occasionally, we’ll tell you about other kinds of threats. Today is one of those days… In this issue, we’re going to talk about the “War on Cash.” As you may know, this is an ongoing effort by governments to eliminate paper money.

Uruguay banned cash transactions over US$5,000. But this upending of the global cash economy isn’t just a foreign affair. Former U.S. … Continue reading

Gold to Explode After Second Rate Hike

Daniel Ameduri, founder of the Wealth Research Group, traces the correlation between Fed rate hikes and the trajectory of the gold markets, predicting a long-term bullish period for the precious metal. Since launching Wealth Research Group at the beginning of 2016, I have dedicated a considerable amount of time understanding precious metals, and their relationship to other factors and assets. From 1971, when gold began trading freely, there have been times of massive inflation, credit crises, deflationary periods, high interest rates and low ones, peace times and excessive wars, currency devaluations and even negative interest rates. The economy went through so many situations and conditions the past 45 years that it’s easy to see why people have stopped doing research themselves blindly listen to mainstream media talking heads. The narrative that investors are being fed with right now is that gold doesn’t produce yield, so rising interest rates would absolutely … Continue reading

Major Royalty Companies All Good Buys Now

Adrian Day reviews recent results at some of his favorite gold and silver royalty and streaming companies and asserts that they represent, as a group, the lowest risk way to gain exposure to the sector. Silver Wheaton Corp. (SLW:NYSE; SLW:TSX US$18.69) is a streaming company with approximately 55% of its revenues from silver, 45% from gold. The stock has been extremely weak since it reported good quarterly results. Depreciation hurt the bottom line, but quarterly “production” rose 17%, up over 50% from a year ago. Most mines on which it holds streams performed well. “Silver Wheaton Corp. is my favorite way to gain exposure to silver.“ The problem is looking ahead. Production is essentially flat through 2020 after years of steady growth, though there is optionality on several nonproducing projects. The balance sheet, while reasonable, is a bit of a constraint on a major acquisition, with just $126 million in … Continue reading

What Doug Casey DID NOT TELL INVESTORS In His Recent Interview


December 3, 2016 By Dudley Pierce Baker   I love to follow and listen to the legendary newsletter writers and analyst and am amazed that they tell investors some of the facts, but rarely all of the facts which investors need to know to make the best decisions. Doug Casey was recently interviewed by Peter Spina of and and the complete interview below is around 20 minutes. What caught my attention immediately was comments on two of the companies that Doug commented on favorably. These two Canadian gold companies have long-term warrants trading. Why the hell would you not bring this to the attention of investors? Good chance that he doesn’t know either. As a subscriber to my you would have immediately asked the same question. If you didn’t already own the stock warrants in either of these companies you could have at least considered them … Continue reading

Trump Makes the U.S. Stock Market Great Again

Technical analyst Clive Maund analyzes the charts since Trump’s election and sees a positive picture for the U.S. stock market. The broad U.S. stock market actually looks better overall than it has done for several years, which may come as a surprise considering it has been in a bull market since as far back as early 2009. On the 10-year chart for the S&P 500 Index we can see that a potential top area developed from early 2015 through the middle of this year, which has now been aborted by recent gains that have seen it break clear above resistance at earlier highs. This index remains within the big parallel channel that started to form back in 2010–2011 and appears to have its sights set on a run to the upper boundary of the channel again, which will result in BIG gains from the current level. While we can speculate … Continue reading
