Show Highlights
  • According to Harry S. Dent Jr., investors should ignore FOMC rate hikes and buy gold - slower job growth could cap US equities prices in 2017. The imminent
  • Greek default slated for this July could be another stumbling block for the financial markets.
  • Implementing the new tax cuts / health care plan proposed by the Administration could be challenging.
  • The Echo Housing Bubble is tied to bubbles in US equities / bonds, all of which threaten to topple the global financial system.
  • Harry S. Dent's economic model indicates a long-term economic downturn began in 2008 and continues to this day.
  • The current economic uptick is merely a fata morgana. Outside the USA, the EU and China are facing their own bubble-troubles.
  • Our guest expects gold and commodities to emerge as the strongest markets along with India during the impending crises.
    Jeffrey Nichols of Rosland Capital returns with comments on the recent FOMC rate decision and the potential impact on the PMs sector.
  • The rate hike appears to be a nonevent; the gold market ignored the FOMC - anticipated the rate hike.
  • Traders continue to focus on real interest rates - the everyday, nominal rate adjusted for price inflation.
  • The official inflation numbers may be bogus - our guest questions the validity of the figures noting that the CPI vastly understates the cost of living.
  • The CPI fails to reflect the shift in consumer tastes away from luxury items in favor of cheaper consumer goods / smaller package sizes.
  • Investors prefer the precious metals as a means to shield their investment portfolios from insidious inflation.
  • The growing problem of underemployment continues to plague the nation.
  • Tens of millions of American's have accepted employment / wages well below their skill / experience level.
  • Jeffrey Nichols finds a bifurcated American economy, where a few thrive economically, while the majority struggle to make ends meet.
  • The gold-bull market never ended; bullion and shares are poised for astronomical gains.
