During a correction, gold falls from the skies. It is on these rare occasions when every asset falls in price that you want to be ready to buy – a lot.

Sell almost everything. The stock market is topping and multiple factors are screaming to take profits and become more defensive on stocks. The rest of 2020 could be a lot like 2018.
The economy is in a borderline depression, but the money printer goes brrr, so Robinhood buys everything in sight. Maybe it’s different this time, and speculation completely unsupported by the facts or valuations, will turn out just fine.
We saw this new correction coming. How long will last and how low will it go? Tomorrow’s webinar will be a doozy.
Today we game out the potential scenarios for the stock market in the short, intermediate and long-term. While the rally might continue a bit longer, there is a certainty of at least a retracing of the rally for a small correction. There are also worse outcomes if the economy does not have the “V” shape recovery that many are hoping for. This is piece is open to members and those with a “Free Library Card.”

Here we have a quick take on whether to own a physical gold ETF, gold stocks or both. Given the amount of money printing going on and more coming soon, gold is likely to have a resurgent bull market that has been a long time coming. We see gains of 200-400% in the next 5-10 years. You will need a Global Trends ETF membership or higher to see this piece.
Stop looking at the world as if it changes every day, things more slower than that. — We will find a bottom when the markets decide we have found a bottom, watch the technical indicators. — When we see signs of stability in the market coming off oversold on the daily, weekly and monthly, then it will be time to get back in. —

Our research shows that over 100 companies in the S&P 500 are at serious risk of becoming zombies or going bankrupt.
