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. —
People are asking me: “Kirk, do I think we still the stock market with another leg down?” My answer is yes. Could I be wrong? Sure, absolutely.
Summary The Senate relief bill seems 50/50 to get approved “as is” by the House of Representatives.”Unanimous Consent” by the House could be used to pass bill, but several Reps do not feel comfortable doing that.It think it is even money that the House proposed their own bill and takes […]
The coronavirus COVID-19 recession and crash will not be short or shallow. We should expect more economic damage. The stock market is still overvalued and likely to fall further. Use this correction as a chance to position your asset allocation into the “smart everything” and alternative energy world that is developing. It is there that enough growth exists to generate gains. Our research shows that over 100 companies in the S&P 500 are at serious risk of becoming zombies or going bankrupt.
The Fed announced that it has “infinite” money today. The great devaluation is on. Helicopter money is here. I have a non-correlated asset you should buy to replace your bonds. Don’t look at the picture, that’s only taking stock of and mining half way to the answer.
Tonight’s webinar preparing us to when and how to buy ETFs for our asset allocation requires a paid membership. I have put a “half price” discount code with all services at the sign-up pages. Please try us on for size at half price. By this point, you probably see the value. We got out early near the highs and we will get back near the lows by scaling into attractive sectors of the economy.
Oil stocks were crushed in recent days. There is a small “hope rally” going on. I am taking that opportunity to clean out the last of my oil stocks and move onto greener sustainable investing pastures.
Oil and oil stocks are crashing as Russia and Saudi Arabia squabble. Russia’s motivation is clearly retaliation against U.S. shale over recent sanctions on Russia. Investors should not expect a quick or deep recovery for most oil stocks. Oil on the other hand holds some promise. Access with membership or a Free Library Card.

Coronavirus is causing severe human suffering. The equity markets are also suffering. However, valuations were looking for a reason to correct. The stock market can easily drop another 25-35%. Use this correction to move away from “old economy” disrupted investments and move towards “smart everything” and alternative energy world investments.
The Coronavirus is a tragedy causing human suffering. For the stock market, it is merely a match lighting the over valuation tinder. Expect far more disruption soon. – Members Only Content, however, you may dead this piece with a “Free Library Card.”

In our annual forecast we suggested an early year correction driven by a volatility event. On Twitter in early January, I posted that coronavirus was the most important story developing. It is now threatening the stock market and global economy. Here’s a simple way to think about volatility now.
Every quarter we update our watchlists. These 2020 “Very Short Lists” have been scrubbed and expanded dramatically.

Screening for stocks should help you whittle down to a list of companies that you can spend time studying. These basics will help you whittle out about 80% or more of the market. This will leave you with a very good chance to buy great companies at low prices.
We have now moved past the “beginning of the end” of the oil age. While there might be one more cyclical bull market in store, the 2020s will mark a profound shift in energy usage. The advent of EVs is upon us and petrochemicals will fail to grow as projected due to better technology driven options. You need an exit strategy from oil and gas stocks.
The repo market is in disarray and Fed bailing is now approaching a half trillion dollars. Is this QE or a bailout? I suspect it’s a stealth hedge fund bailout. A big one.
This piece is available to anybody with a subscription or a FREE Library Card. Find out how we are trading the first half of 2020 and what might develop. Hint, we expect volatility to increase in 2020 and the year to potentially be a lot like 2018 ending in a crash.
This is my summary 2020 outlook. As I have discussed before, prognostications though often accurate, have difficulty providing precise enough time frames to trade. Because of that, I think investors should consider different scenarios, from most likely to least likely, and have a game plan for each. — You can access this piece with a Free Library Card!
