Gold Stocks Are Not Expensive At All

They are not expensive at all. I think they are still cheap despite the fact that many of the gold stocks are now at multiyear highs as gold hits another 52 week high. I think relative to where they have been in the past and where they are going, you can still buy these stocks, I think they have a long way to run.

Switzerland Is The Strongest Economy In Europe

They talk about making Britain more like Switzerland. That would be a great thing. Switzerland is not in the EU and they have the strongest economy in Europe. So you do not have to be in the European Union to have a strong economy, in fact a lot of the countries in Europe are struggling because of the burden of regulation coming out of Brussels.

The Markets Are Way Overreacting

I think the markets are way overreacting to what the implications are for the U.K. to leave the European Union. (SPDR S&P 500 Index ETF (SPY), SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), Euro Currency Futures, EuroStoxx 50 Index)

Yellen Is Still Pretending

Janet Yellen is still pretending the Federal Reserve will eventually allow its balance sheet to shrink. It will not shrink, it will explode to new highs!

The Gold Trade

Somehow a lot of people jump to the conclusion that the gold trade is an uncertainty trade, a political chaos trade but that is not really what is going on here. The price of gold is not going up because of what is going on in Europe. It is going up because of what is happening in the United States, more specifically in Washington and even more specifically at the Federal Reserve.

Gold & The British Referendum

I think gold (SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD)) is going to go up regardless of the way the British vote. I think they should vote to leave but wether they stay or wether they go its not going to influence my decision wether or not I want to own gold.

The Next Crisis Will Be A Dollar Crisis

We are not prepared for what is about to happen which again will be much worse than the 2008 financial crisis. It is going to be a dollar crisis, it is going ultimately to be a sovereign debt crisis and it is going to bring this bubble economy to its knees.

European Banks: Trading Lower Than They Were At The 2009 Lows

The European banks are lower than they were at their 2009 post Lehman financial crisis low. That is a huge decline in those European banks. They got negative rates over there. This is another example of what happens when you go to bed with the devil.

Markets: U.S. Dollar, Emerging Markets

Once the Federal Reserve has to admit that we are in a recession, what are they going to do? They are going to cut interest rates, start printing up a lot of money, the U.S. Dollar tanks, commodity prices are going to rise and all of a sudden a lot of the emerging markets are going to be in better shape, a lot of the countries that were hurt by a strong U.S. Dollar and by the fear of higher Fed rates, those economies are going to take off.

This Trade Is Just Getting Started

This trade is just getting started because the U.S. Dollar is falling and gold is rising when people still expect the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. Imagine what is going to happen when they expect them to cut.

We Are Going Into A Currency Crisis

It is going to be awful. Do you remember the financial crisis of 2008? You think that was bad? This is going to be worse. But it will not necessarily be concentrated in the stock market. I think that the Government, the Federal Reserve, their main goal is to make sure that the stock market does not collapse again, to make sure that the real estate market does not collapse again. And they may succeed but only by sacrificing the U.S. Dollar.

We are going into a currency crisis and this crisis will be much bigger than the financial crisis. The impact it is going to have on the average American, on their standard of living is going to be much more pronounced.

Crude Oil Prices Close Above 50 Dollars A Barrel

There Is A Bubble In Sovereign Bonds

The reason people are buying European bonds at negative yields its because its a bubble.

During the real estate bubble investors were buying investment properties that had negative cash flows. Meaning that the rents collected were not enough to cover the cost of owning the property. Now, why were they doing that? Its because they believed that the price of the real estate would go up despite the fact that it had a negative cash flow. They thought that there would be a greater fool who would pay an even higher price and endure an even bigger negative cash flow. So it was the greater fool theory.

That is what is going on now with European sovereign bonds trading at negative rates of interest except the greater fool is the European Central Bank (ECB). People are buying these bonds not because they are dumb enough to hold them to maturity. Nobody going to hold a negative yielding bond to maturity, you are guaranteed to lose money.

People were buying these bonds to sell, they think they will find a greater fool willing to pay an even higher price and get an even more negative yield. That fool is the ECB with their bond buying program and they will buy these bonds regardless of price. This is a gigantic bubble!

Why The Fed Will Not Raise Interest Rates

The reason why the Fed will not let interest rates go up is because if they let interest rates go up, we cannot afford to pay the interest on our debt and we would have to default. To avoid the embarassment of a default they keep interest rates artificially low. But I think its better to be honest and default than going through a currency crisis that we are heading to.
