Featured Guests
Ralph Acampora, and Harry S. Dent Jr.



Summary

  • Economist and best-selling author Harry S. Dent Jr., returns with positive comments on the PMs sector.
  • The gold market follows the commodities cycle , which continues to advance. Every investor should allocate 5-10% gold / silver to to their portfolio to improve investment diversification.
  • Investor's appetite for the PMs continues to improve, in the wake of news of huge losses related to security issues in the Bitcoin encryption methodology.
  • The positive trend in US equities is directly correlated to negative rates - investors have few options other than chasing risk to boost expected returns.
  • Weakening economic conditions will persist, which could lead to a new round of QE4 and subsequent inflation.
  • Given the startlingly muted economic fallout in the UK following the Brexit, Spain, Portugal and Italy may exit the EU, improving the prospects for PMs.

  • Leading Wall Street technician, Ralph Acampora of Altaira Wealth Management returns with his technical view on the markets.
  • His outlook on the PMs metals is positive; gold could advance above $1,400 per ounce.
  • Nearly 50 years ago, Stevenson and Bear (1970) outlined an alternative to the EMH; sometimes display years of long-memory (trends).
  • Our guest highlights the importance of key investing factors: price, time and sentiment, culminating in a fusion investing approach.
  • Fusion investing involves combining economic themes, fundamentals and technical analyses.
  • Reminiscent of the chess match between Russian Grandmaster Gary Kasparov vs. Deep Blue, the fusion approach yields a nearly invincible approach.
  • Ralph Acampora prefers the contrarian perspective, noting he's "very excited, because no one else is..."
  • He cannot recall a time in his 50 year trading tenure, where so many investors were weary of US stocks.
  • Such investor nervousness typically coincides with favorable markets. The shares index breadth remains highly bullish, suggesting an impending "meltup."
  • Case in point, the price rebound following the infamous Brexit announcement indicates substantial underlying strength / accumulation.
  • The financial shares continue to underperform, presenting an enticing valuation opportunity.
  • Our guest leaves the listener's with sage advice on US equities, "Stay bullish."

Summary:
  • Chris welcomes back Bob Hoye, senior investment strategist at Institutional Advisors.
    His new peak momentum indicator tends to identify market zeniths and subsequent new bear markets.
  • It currently suggests gold and silver correction could soon pass, clearing the path for a new primary bull market.
  • His work on the silver market ranging from the 1500’s to today indicates that the current divergence in silver relative to gold could portend a financial crisis.
  • Bob Hoye is convinced that restoring confidence in the global currency system due to profligate policymaker decisions will require a global gold standard.
  • Canada officially has sold 100% of its gold reserve stockpile, near the bottom of a multi-year bear market.
  • Homes are overpriced in many towns, especially McMansions.
  • Junk bonds and many stocks are entering bear market.
  • Gold stocks are positioned to benefit from the financial volatility.
  • Chris welcomes James Turk of GoldMoney.com - he's watching the gold / silver ratio closely.
  • The current reading near 80:1 may represent a significant relative value for silver, especially given the naturally occurring, geological 10:1 ratio.
  • Were silver to merely return to the traditional level, the price would leap to three digits, even if the price of gold remained static.
  • Just five years ago, the gold / silver ratio approached 30:1 - a similar figure would put the silver price 2.5X's higher, approximately $35 per ounce.
  • Due in large part to negative lending by global central banks, the cost of storing gold is negligible, relative to the cost of negative savings rates.
  • Investors are understandably more concerned by the return of their funds than by the return on their funds (Will Rogers).
  • James Turk's inflation forecast suggests that millions of PMs investors will benefit from the outcome.
  • Peter Grandich of Peter Grandich and Company rejoins the show with positive comments on the PMs and crude oil, markets.

  • Contrarian investors may continue to benefit from nearly universal bearishness - investors are gun-shy, presenting buying opportunities.
  • Trouble in the US hedge fund industry could put downward pressure on the stock indexes.
  • The remarkable share recovery since 2009 is a direct result of hedge fund related buying and dovish Fed policies.
  • Officials may be boxed into a corner, forced to implement QE 4 or an alternative machination to hold together the shaky, economic house-of-cards.
  • Leading Wall Street technician, Ralph Acampora of Altaira Wealth Management returns to the show with an overview of key support levels in the markets.
  • Ralph Acampora agrees with several recent guests that gold and silver have seen their lows - selloffs present buying opportunities.
  • The yearlong trading range in US equities includes wide swings of 2,000 points in the Dow Jones Industrials.
  • The Eurozone is grappling with Grexit issues, which is stifling economic growth.
  • Our guest assures listeners that both domestic and EU equities markets will likely rebound from current levels.
  • US stocks could reach new zeniths this year.
  • The technical position of crude oil continues to improve.
