Ralph Acampora CMT, Altaira Wealth Management & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - October 18, 2018.

Mp3 format.

 

Highlights

Ralph Acampora returns to the show, a highly respected name on Wall Street and the co-founder of the Chartered Market Technician designation (CMT). The former Director of Technical Research at Smith Barney, Kidder Peabody, Prudential Securities and Knight Securities, sees a more rosey picture on US equities, with the Dow Jones Industrials / Transporation indexes recently at a new record levels, confirming a Dow Theory buy signal. One priviso - the next rally must post new record highs or more ominous conditions could unfold. Our guest also pooh-poohs the risk of interest rate hikes - not until rates climb to 5% should analysts sound the alarm. According to one media report, the 30 year US Treasury actually outperformed US shares just slightly over the 35 year bull market, which could lead to a profound reaction as soon as 2018 due to expected FED rate hikes. In addition, the recent tariffs on US trading partners may not pose a major threat to share prices.

Axel Merk, Merk Investments & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - October 10th, 2018.

Highlights

STATE of EMERGENCY: FL / NC / SC / GA: Hurricane Michael (2018) Makes Landfall in Panama City FL - 155 MPH Winds - CAT 4.

  • Axel Merk, head of Merk Investments returns to the show after a two year hiatus with a unique and positive outlook on the gold sector.
  • Merk Investments is monitoring the yield curve closely; while inversions typically mark recessions, occasional false signals are still possible.
  • Using central banking policy as a guide, the new Fed Chief, Jerome Powell is expected to continue raising rates a bit too far similar to predecessors.
  • The market has not yet fully priced the additional rate hikes and impending inflationary pressures.
  • This conclusion leads to the key takeaway point: given Merk's economic outlook, where paper assets with cash flow exposure to much higher rates suffer relative to commodities, such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium and crude oil, the PMs should outperform US equities and make a compelling alternative to competing asset classes.

Bill Murphy & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - October 4th, 2018.

Highlights

Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns to the show with encouragement for PMs bulls. Gold miners just found a 90 kg $15 million "mother lode" gold nugget in Western Australia after only 4 days of work. In similar fashion, both Bill Murphy and coguest Michael Pento agree that gold will soon ascend beyond $2,000 creating vast fortunes seemingly overnight for prepared gold investors. However, silver could be the sleeping behemoth as 7.5 billion global inhabitants scramble to shield their shriveling purchasing power from the ravages of a global, systemic currency-fiasco, the 80 : 1 gold to silver ratio could close abruptly and return to the more historical norm of 10 : 1, catapulting silver to triple digits, post haste. Case in point, palladium is approaching $1,000 as analysts forecasts indicate the industrial metal could eclipse the current gold price, $1,300. In similar fashion, silver could outpace the expectations of even the most staunchly bullish investor, climbing 100 fold in the coming years to four digits, especially given John Williams' and Nick Barisheff's $10,000+ gold thesis. Moreover, the analysis of Ronan Manly of BullionStar supports Gata.org, the LBMA is regularly trading 130 times more paper contracts than bullion available in the vaults and 11 times more paper gold is trading world wide than has ever been mined.

Highlights

  • Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC returns to Goldseek.com Radio with his latest economic insights.
  • While most analysts are oblivious to the current financial risks, Michael Pento says the next crisis is already underway.
  • Global central bank QE operations will turn negative for the first time since the Great Recession 10 years ago in 2019 (black line in graph) (figure 1.1.).
  • Global equities markets, copper, lumber and many key markets are currently signaling economic distress.
  • Since the 1950's an economic recession followed 9 out of 10 times after the yield curve inverted; the curve could invert as soon as this Dec.
  • The Fed is expected to raise rates for the 4th time this year.
  • Pento Portfolio Strategies points to the $20 trillion national debt level and that of China.
  • These unsustainable burdens could add to the growing risk of economic contraction.
  • Public debt has increased from $4 trillion to $15+ trillion drastically increasing default exposure amid sharply higher rates.
  • The Dec. Fed rate hike will push the Pento 20 multivariate regression model into a short position on US equities by the end of 2019.
  • For the first time in a decade - commodities, PMs and cash will be the assets du jour.
  • Key takeaway: gold and especially the XAU / HUI will skyrocket, with AU quickly ascending above $2,000.

Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC. returns to Goldseek.com Radio with his latest economic insights. While most analysts are oblivious to the current financial risks, Michael Pento says the next crisis is already underway as global central bank QE operations will turn negative in 2019 for the first time since the Great Recession 10 years ago (black line in graph) (figure 1.1.). Global equities markets, copper, lumber and many key markets are already signaling economic distress. According to our guest, since the 1950's an economic recession followed 9 out of 10 times after the yield curve inverted, which will take place as soon as the Dec. FOMC meeting, where the Fed is expected to raise rates for the 4th time this year. Pento Portfolio Strategies points to the $20 trillion national debt level and that of China, which recently grew from $1 trillion to $30 trillion, 50% more than the US; these unsustainable burdens could add to the growing risk of economic contraction. In addition, public debt has increased from $4 trillion to $15+ trillion, drastically increasing default exposure amid sharply higher rates. Key takeaway: gold and especially the XAU / HUI will skyrocket, with AU quickly ascending above $2,000 amid chaos in emerging markets, slowing corporate buybacks, declining growth in China and increased tariffs. The Dec. Fed rate hike will push the Pento 20 multivariate regression model into a short position on US equities by the end of 2019, for the first time in a decade - commodities, PMs and cash will be the assets du jour.

  • Fed policymakers wind down economic stimulus operations.
  • The PMs found a floor around $1,200 - once the $1,450 barrier is eclipsed, the uptrend in gold / silver investments will restart with gusto.

Founder of the Trends Research Institute and Globalnomic® Trend Forecaster Gerald Celente returns with essential insights for savvy investors. His Global-nomic models indicate the 10 year bull stampede in US shares could end soon. US shares could be completing a key cycle top, as corporate insiders curtail record stock repurchases while liquidating their positions as Fed policymakers wind down economic stimulus operations. Concurrently, the PMs found a floor around $1,200 - once the $1,450 barrier is eclipsed, the uptrend in gold / silver investments will restart with gusto. The guest / host agree that crude oil, the lifeblood of global economic output could soon soar to $100+ per barrel, slamming the brakes on global / domestic economic output. In addition, the Trends Forecaster is particularly concerned by increased tensions between the super powers and their allies in the Middle East - the powder keg could ignite a global conflict of epic scale. Health Tips: #1. The avocado is quite possibly the most heart-healthy food on earth, surpassing even the banana in potassium. #2. Table salt is comprised of 1/3 sodium 1/3 sand and 1/3 iodine - the sand enters the arteries, causing tears along the way, which is in turn are plugged by cholesterol, blocking the blood flow - i.e., hypertension is not caused by cholesterol or sodium, but by adulterated table salt. Himalayan / Celtic salt may be advisable for improved health. #3 The epidemic of suicides among young US veterans could be slowed with a remarkable friend, who's always there for them 24 / 7: please forward this link to any high risk individuals: Your new best friend from Microsoft, Zo.ai.

Martin Armstrong & Chris Waltzek PhD - September 25th, 2018.

  • Global financier, Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics rejoins the show with his latest market commentary.
  • Armstrong's next Investment Seminar - Annual conference is located in Orlando Florida, scheduled for November 16-17.
  • According to Mr. Armstrong, "Tangible assets survive," when paper assets evaporate, making collectible items and PMs invaluable during financial crises.
  • Last week, Dr. Copper blasted higher by 8%; the semiprecious metal is used extensively in a broad array of industrial products such as electronics.
  • From a financial standpoint, copper is often viewed as a key barometer of global economic output, the backbone of the technology sector.
  • The strong move higher suggests improving economic conditions in the world’s second largest economy, China.
  • Media sources confirm increased demand from the rousing tiger nation and low stockpiles indicative of the perfect conditions for commodities.
  • Despite technical damage incurred by the US dollar following the sharp selloff last week our guest believes the Greenback will remain the go-to currency. The high yielding US dollar continues to attract global money flows, as investors seek much higher relative dividend yields.
  • Our guest expects this trend to also boost US shares prices. Health Tip: the host suggests discussing melatonin supplements with a general practitioner to boost the immune system and improve rest, when taken 3 hours before bedtime (figure 1.1.).

Global financier, Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics rejoins the show with this latest market commentary including positive thoughts on tangible assets, like gold and silver. Martin Armstrong's next Investment Seminar - Annual conference is located in Orlando Florida, scheduled for November 16-17. According to Mr. Armstrong, "Tangible assets survive," when paper assets evaporate, making collectible items and the PMs invaluable during financial crises. Meanwhile, last week, Dr. Copper blasted higher by 8%; the semiprecious metal is used extensively in a broad array of industrial products and in particular, electronics as the backbone of the technology sector. From a financial standpoint, copper is often viewed as a key barometer of global economic output, so the strong move higher suggests improving economic conditions in the world’s second largest economy, China. Media sources confirm increased demand from the rousing tiger nation and low stockpiles indicative of the perfect conditions for commodities. Despite technical damage incurred by the US dollar following the sharp selloff last week our guest believes the Greenback will remain the go-to currency, in turn sending the US shares indexes to new records in 2019. Elsewhere, the high yielding US dollar continues to attract global money flows, as investors seek much higher relative dividend yields - our guest expects this trend to also boost US shares prices. Health Tip: the host suggests discussing melatonin supplements with a general practitioner to boost the immune system and improve rest, when taken 3 hours before bedtime (figure 1.1.).

Dr. Raymond Moody M.D., renowned psychiatrist and author of best-selling Life after Life (1974) as well as cofounder of The University of Heaven makes his show debut. The host is reunited with the former forensic therapist 30 years after sitting in Dr. Moody's undergraduate class, who embarked upon a remarkable-lifelong scientific journey to uncover the truth about life beyond death. Our guest outlines an intriguing model of the most frequent experiences outlined by those whose minds / bodies reached clinical death, but who fortunately were later resuscitated. Dr. Moody talks with Dr. Eben Alexander, a Harvard educated and senior neurosurgeon who entered a coma as an atheist but reemerged with a profound / inspirational spiritual-experience rivaling that of even the most ardent believer (Figure 1.1.). Dr. Moody is giving a seminar on his latest findings in human logic in Montreal on October 20th, 2018, presenting what some colleagues are calling the biggest breakthrough in the field since days of Dr. Kurt Godel's Incompleteness Theorem. The Central Intelligence Agency was so intrigued by the concept officials invited Dr. Moody to present his hypotheses where he facilitates other scientists in bridging the gap between the macro / micro world's, unifying Einstein's field equations with the subatomic models of the quantum world first put foward by physicists Neils Bohr and Heisenberg. Another interesting application of Dr. Moody's seminal research might involve improving quantum computing, where binary code is inadequate for programming the language of more probabilistically based, quantum outcomes.

John Williams & Chris Waltzek - September 19th, 2018.

 

Recap

  • John Williams of Shadowstats.com returns to the show with dire comments on the domestic economy.
  • US policymakers have attempted to revive the domestic economy via $14 trillion QE policies requiring $100 billion per month in QE operations.
  • The last of 9 interest rate increases will occur in the current rate hike cycle as of December, 2018 (Hunter & Pento, 2018).
  • The official economic numbers may be skewed - when properly adjusted for Real inflation (10% vs. 3% officially) retail sales are flat to negative.
  • All the world's key central banks have plans to lower / halt QE operations by the end of 2018, reversing from net positive QE to net negative QE.
  • The plan will contract the Fed's balance sheet while significantly lowering financial liquidity to the detriment of US shares / Treasuries.
  • John Williams doubts policymakers will remain hawkish for long as the global QE liquidity must continue to maintain US dollar reserve currency hegemony.
  • Given his assumption that the purchasing power of the reserve currency is "doomed," our guest has identified a singular means to escape what he views as inevitable North American, hyperinflation, via gold and silver coins / bars.

John Williams of Shadowstats.com returns to the show with dire comments on the domestic economy. Over the past decade, US policymakers have attempted to revive the domestic economy via $14 trillion QE policies requiring $100 billion per month in QE operations; analysts expect the final of 9 interest rate increases in the current rate hike cycle as of December, 2018 (Hunter & Pento, 2018). Nevertheless, the official economic numbers may be skewed - when properly adjusted for Real inflation (10% vs. 3% officially) retail sales are flat to negative and much of economic output is overstated. Ten years later, all the world's key central banks have plans to lower / halt QE operations by the end of 2018, including the Fed, which will reverse from net positive QE to net negative QE within 6 months. The plan will contract the Fed's balance sheet while significantly lowering financial liquidity to the detriment of US shares / Treasuries and related financial markets, including the key money center-banks (Figures 1.1 & 1.2). However, John Williams doubts policymakers will remain hawkish for long as the global QE liquidity festival must continue to maintain US dollar reserve currency hegemony. Given his assumption that the purchasing power of the reserve currency is "doomed," our guest has identified a singular means to escape what he views as inevitable North American, hyperinflation, via gold and silver coins / bars.

Highlights

  • Peter Schiff, head of SchiffGold, Euro Pacific Capital, and Euro Pacific Gold Fund (EPGFX) returns with comments on the financial sector.
  • Our guest notes that gold reached a bear market nadir in 2015 and is building a base for a new bull run.
  • Once the move begins in earnest, the gold / silver ratio will collapse as silver outperforms gold during much of the advance.
  • Washington expressed disappointment with the decision of Fed Chair Jerome Powell to continue with the national rate-hike policy into 2019.
  • Although Powell has publicity noted the Fed would "Do whatever it takes to tame inflation" Peter Schiff and the host doubt containment plans will work.
  • Policymakers may be taking their cues from misleading economic models.
  • Curtailing inflation could prove more challenging than during the last severe deflationary crisis in the early 1980's when the US was a global powerhouse.
  • In 2019, investment flows could favor gold as rate hike expectations diminish and the Greenback flounders relative to competing currencies.
  • The flattening yield curve suggests rates could invert next year implying a recessionary environment, lowering demand for US equities in favor of the PMs.

Washington expressed disappointment with the decision of Fed Chair Jerome Powell to continue with the national rate-hike policy into 2019. Although Powell has publicity noted the Fed would "Do whatever it takes to tame inflation" Peter Schiff and the host question if containing the resulting inflation will be plausible. Policymakers may be taking their cues from misleading economic models as curtailing inflation could prove more challenging than during the last severe deflationary crisis in the early 1980's when the US was the leading, global-manufacturing powerhouse. In 2019, investment flows could favor gold as rate hike expectations diminish and the Greenback flounders relative to competing currencies, thereby increasing gold's investment appeal. In addition, the flattening yield curve suggests rates could invert next year implying a recessionary environment, in turn lowering demand for US equities in favor of the PMs.

Highlights

  • FREE OFFER! - Crawford Perspectives is offering the Sept. Report for those who respond today (arch.ah.crawford@gmail.com)
  • Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives for 41 consecutive years, rejoins the show, commenting on gold, financial markets and Hurricane Florence.
  • Florence is a category 4 storm headed directly for the Tar Heel State.
  • Gold remains the de facto dollar alternative given that over 96% of the Greenback's value has eroded since 1913.
  • Arch Crawford cautions US equities investors that Sept. / Oct. are typically very challenging months for the shares indexes.
  • The discussion shifts over to the cryptos, where Ethereum broke below $200, touching $170.
  • Although our guest notes positive price behavior, if the panic spreads to Bitcoin it could lead to a retest of $5700.
  • The southeast is bracing for winds of up to 130 mph and strong tidal surges by Thursday evening.
  • Similar to last year's Hurricane Harvey that decimated Puerto Rico and surrounding islands all the way up to NC.
  • Officials have already declared a state of emergency and evacuations are underway.
  • The current inland trajectory reveal high odds that the storm will pass due north of Atlanta, covering upper South Carolina.
  • The range includes the Greater Greenville region, north to Asheville and Charlotte.
  • Western North Carolina will be impacted, such as Cashiers, Glenville, Cullowhee, Sapphire, Sylva, Hayesville, etc.
  • It is advisable to check the current storm trajectory daily / hourly as weather patterns are as unpredictable - reliability of forecasts diminish over time.
  • Tens of thousands of FEMA trailers distributed in the wake of 2005 Hurricane Katrina still have toxic levels of formaldehyde, literally embalming occupants.
  • The VIN numbers are tagged on the trailer hitch side and searchable in the online database.
  • All trailer denizens are advised to check the FEMA trailer search online. Any formaldehyde readings above 6-8 ppm are deemed carcinogenic - FEMA trailers regularly register 14 times that figure.

Similar to last year's Hurricane Harvey that decimated Puerto Rico and surrounding islands all the way up to NC, where power outages were widespread for days following the storm, officials have already declared a state of emergency and evacuations are underway. The current inland trajectory reveal high odds that the storm will pass due north of Atlanta, covering upper South Carolina including the Greater Greenville region, north to Asheville and Charlotte. Western North Carolina will be impacted, such as Cashiers, Glenville, Cullowhee, Sapphire, Sylva, Hayesville, etc. However, it is advisable to check the current storm trajectory daily / hourly as weather patterns are as unpredictable as turbulence where the reliability of forecasts diminish over time. According to the work of Henri Poincare via the Three Body Problem, storms fall into the category of chaotic systems, that that make only initial conditions highly perfectible, so the storm path could shift at a moments notice. Side note - tens of thousands of FEMA trailers distributed in the wake of 2005 Hurricane Katrina still have toxic levels of formaldehyde, literally embalming occupants - the VIN numbers are tagged on the trailer hitch side and searchable in the online database - all trailer denizens are advised to check the FEMA trailer search online. Any formaldehyde readings above 6-8 ppm are deemed carcinogenic - FEMA trailers regularly register 14 times that figure.

  • Professor Laurence Kotlikoff, from Kotlikoff.net and author of the FREE book: You're Hired! says gold and silver investors could emerge victorious.
  • The shackles of over $200 trillion in total US debt / financial obligations and a potential trade war with key trading partners looms above the markets.
  • Investors should procure portfolio insurance such as gold while curtailing US equities / Treasuries exposure.
  • Our guest questions the wisdom of threats from Washington to impose an additional $200 billion in tariffs on China.
  • The trade skirmish has already impacted lumber imports from Canada that increased the average new home prices by over $9,000.
  • The professor notes the US government is bankrupt, which makes long-term Treasuries risky relative to shorter term US notes as well as US equities.
  • The American per capital savings rate has plunged in recent decades from 15% (similar to Japan / China currently) to 3%, suggesting very little flexibility of the typical domestic home to withstand unforeseen economic hardships.

Professor Laurence Kotlikoff, from Kotlikoff.net and author of the FREE book: You're Hired! says gold and silver investors could emerge victorious amid the shackles of over $200 trillion in total US debt / financial obligations and a potential trade war with key trading partners. Investors should procure portfolio insurance such as gold while curtailing US equities / Treasuries exposure. While unfair trade imbalances have existed for decades, our guest questions the wisdom of threats from Washington to impose an additional $200 billion in tariffs on China - the trade skirmish has already impacted lumber imports from Canada that increased the average new home prices by over $9,000. The professor notes the US government is bankrupt, which makes long-term Treasuries risky relative to shorter term US notes as well as US equities that appear to be expensive from a valuation basis. The American per capital savings rate has plunged in recent decades from 15% (similar to Japan / China currently) to 3%, suggesting very little flexibility of the typical domestic home to withstand unforeseen economic hardships.

The latest Listener's Q&A segment includes phone calls on the timely topics of gold, the Kinesis project and stocks / bonds from friends of the show, Marcus, Trenton and longtime listener John in Sunny San Diego. Marcus begins the dialogue with comments on the gold backed cryptocurrency project from Down Under, Kinesis regarding key team member's, Andrew Maguire and CEO Coughlin. According to Goldseek's top brass, the Kinesis digital currency project appears to be legit: latest Kinesis project paper in .PDF form. One key caveat, initial public offerings are very tricky to navigate and involve higher than typical risks. For instance, the Komodo ICO was a stealth currency with an excellent underwriter and in such demand pre-ICO that 30 days of attempts were oftentimes required just to place a buy order. While Komodo was one of the best performers in history, following the opening day the token price crashed from the 50 fold the ICO price to the pre-ICO price over a few weeks. The key takeaway point; in most cases and for most investors it is advisable to wait for an ICO to enter the public market arena so that organic price discovery can reveal true value. Another case in point, the SALT lending platform ICO was solid and vetted every single US investor, thousands of hours of professional due diligence followed. Nevertheless, the price dropped abruptly from the opening price and remains in recovery mode. One advisable source for ICOs is the Smith - Crown website. Unless a solid ICO is available at pre-ICO offering earliest bird discounted prices, oftentimes called the beta level, it is typically advisable to wait for a weekly chart bottom following an ICO. Regarding the COMEX gold / paper contract ratio, we’ve heard from years from the GATA.org folks that there’s simply little gold to cover the contracts, something like 1 / 100 ounces / contract and James Turk regularly warned our listeners that a force majeure could unfold at any point where the exchange simply defaulted on the gold obligations. Elsewhere, shifts in the yield curve indicate a flattening yield curve including expectations that the short yield could eclipse the longer yield by summer of 2019, as the Fed wraps up it’s rate hike cycle and the EU / China / Japan finally turn hawkish following the Fed, in turn putting the greenback under pressure. Market forces could soon favor the Yen, Yuan and Euros over the dollar in anticipation of higher yields. It could also put pressure on the US stock market advance as soon as January of 2019, as investors anticipate the rise of alternative currencies and the positive impact on competing indexes such as the Nikkei, DAX, and in Shanghai. Lastly, Trenton claims to be an an investor in the sound deck.io blockchain that could potentially ignite a creativity revolution as artists have greater incentives to create and share their best work. It is advisable that everyone do their own due diligence and remain vigilant to the risks associated with new projects.
