Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse  or the New Dawn

Figuratively speaking, the Four Horsemen are trashing our world. In opposition to the Four Horsemen are the Four Rays of the New Dawn. Gold and silver will continue to be hated and denigrated by western central banks and governments. Asian governments, central banks and individuals will continue to love and accumulate gold and silver. Ask yourself why Asians want gold and Wall Street wants paper.

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

In the latest Advisory Board which took place earlier in October, the investment landscape driven by the disinflationary forces signaled by the Incrementum Inflation Signal were discussed. Based on that signal, it seems that the inflation/deflation-tug-of-war is very intense these days. The signal switched to “neutral” at the beginning of August and then very quickly it indicated “disinflation” once again. A rather dramatic move in the USD, commodities, gold and silver followed. As can be seen on the following chart, the signal works well in real-time.

What Has Recent History Shown About Inflation, Debt, Prosperity?

Wars will continue but may not be decisively won or lost. Debt and currency in circulation will rise exponentially. Consumer prices will continue increasing.
Gold, silver, crude oil, gasoline and food will become much more expensive. Voters will continue voting for politicians and wars even though both cause prices to rise. The number of Americans on food stamps (SNAP) will continue rising. Unemployment statistics will fall in election years but the actual number of Americans working full-time jobs will decline.

Rate Bounce After Fed Meeting Pushes Dollar Higher and Gold Price Lower

Although today’s Fed announcement didn’t really change anything, the financial markets continued to anticipate higher U.S. rates. The first chart shows the 5-Year Treasury Note Yield climbing close to its yearly high. The 10-Year T-Note yield also bounced. The widening spread between U.S. and foreign yields continues to support the dollar. The second chart shows the Dollar Index hitting a new recovery high. That pushed most commodity prices lower. The orange bars in the second chart shows the Gold Trust falling to a new low.

Loss Of Confidence Over The Last 40 Years, aka The Trust Bear

Expect more spending, debt, wars, and price inflation. Expect higher food and energy costs, a devalued dollar, and less confidence in governments and paper currencies. Expect more stock market crashes, corrections, booms, and blow-offs. Expect more “happy-talk” from politicians and financial TV while most of the US, Europe and Japan suffers through what appears to be an on-going depression. Expect long-term economic safety with gold and silver, perhaps ONLY with gold and silver.

Why The Gold Price Rose $50 On Thursday June 19th

As I started writing in these pages in 2014, inflation is becoming a real problem in America. Years ago, I started writing about how all this money the Federal Reserve is creating out of thin air would become inflationary. That’s exactly what is starting to happen now. I have said it many times before: inflation in the U.S. economy is going to be a major problem. Gold is the best hedge against inflation. That’s why it’s an important part of any investment portfolio.

Good Reason for Doom and Gloom

Good Reason for Doom and Gloom

Inflation to any degree is not an act of God. Neither are currency nor stock market crashes. Central bankers create these calamities and then ride off into the sunset, earning six-figure speaking fees and multimillion-dollar book deals. The positive reinforcement they receive ensures they’ll repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Warnings must be issued constantly. Bad things are going to happen to the finances of individuals who aren’t prepared.

20 Years of Inflation in Debt and Prices

20 Years of Inflation in Debt and Prices

Expect more debt and higher prices for stocks, energy, gold and silver. Expect more volatility as prices adjust for the latest shock, insolvency, war, and announcement from the Federal Reserve or supposedly important politician. The powers-that-be know the game is “Inflate or Die” and while they might not be all-powerful, a century of increasing prices indicates they will probably get what they want.

Why Gold Isn’t A Perfect Inflation Hedging Tool

It’s no news that inflation is one of the biggest retirement risks. There is a school of though that allocating a portion your self-directed IRA to precious metals – like gold or its stocks – could help hedge against inflation. In fact, with buzzes going around that inflation is around the corner, gold IRA rollover is becoming increasingly popular. But, in reality, gold isn’t the ultimate inflation-hedging tool it’s being made to be. Here is why.
