  • The Remarkable Rise In The Price Of Silver [View article]
    Silver is trading at or near 100 Day MA with an upside to at least touch 35 over the short term. It's remarkable how it has been trading with base metals and yet if you have a Long Term Outlook it's it the most undervalued as a Precious Metal.
    As Industrial use Japan & the U.S. Are looking for alternatives in Rare Earth Elements and are testing boundaries with Silver.
    To many people use the correlation of The Hunt Brothers Scenario which was manipulation. Not to say that Chinas Finance Minister has openly accused the U.S & EU for surpressing the price of Precious Metals.
    This was in a Forbes Article and they believe Gold should be 5000 per ounce & Silver should be 600-930 per ounce depending on Demand.
    Long Term I would not doubt this considering what happened with Palladium when Ford just swept in and PALL has never been the same.
    There is not a single Corporation who will want a supply chain disruption & the thinner our electronics are is the more PSLV being used.
    If Gold does reach levels per ounce that are to expensive you can & most likely would see the Historic levels come back to that ratio.
    The U.S had the largest strategic stockpiles of SLV in the world which is all gone.
    It's encouraging to see SLV going up on it's own accord and if you have a long term outlook Silver in my opinion is the BUY of THE CENTURY.
    Do not trust everything you hear on CNBC
    China is making Currency pacts with Countries Japan, Brazil, Russia, even the U.K. Their goal within less than 10 years is to become The World Reserve Currency.
    The Chinese Government is encouraging their people to buy Gold & Silver. This is what may be checkmate.
    If we loose Our Status as The World Reserve Currency we will see a devaluation in the USD that would likely have GLD & SLV truly go parabolic & do what China wants it to do.
    All year in 2011 I wrote blogs of Chinas Government buying Gold quietly. China is now the 2nd Largest Holder of Gold in the World just behind the U.S.
    Call them what you want but they think long term & we have a Government that is Broken & Corrupt ALL of them with their own Agendas. Senators, Congress are not subject to rules of Insider Trading and you can read the book "Throw Them All Out" it has names of Politicians that were buying options on SQQQ FAZ QID etc. During the financial crisis. It makes me sick & they are KILLING America.

  • Precious Metals Pullbacks In Perspective [View article]
    As a former employee at MS we are seeing for the first time the UUP which is the Dollar Bull Index go up along with Gold going up at the same time. For years we surpress the price of Precious Metals. King Dollar would come in and wipe it all out. Your not seeing this trend and I am watching it dwindle away along with our standing on the world stage. There is one thing about charts, they will never show you the future. You are starting to see countries Nationalize Gold Mining, you are starting to see GDX GDXJ NUGT miners that are starting to hold their own supply along with cash on their balance sheet.
    This has taken new form and the history books and financial models are being re written as we go. What scares me the most is we are in the most volatile markets the world has ever seen. Up 2-3% Down 2-3% etc and it's happening almost daily.
    I give Warren Buffet much credit as an American Icon & Leader investing into FSLR. Gold has everything to do with America as our fiscal house is a disaster and the dollar is starting to loose it's influence as the World Reserve Currency
    -So much so that June 2012 China is Year of the Dragon is opening their own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy in their own currency and start flushing out our paper as it's no secret their Finance Ministery openly accuses the U.S. & EU for surpressing the prices and Gold should be at 5000 dollars an ounce and Silver should between 6-900 an ounce all at a minimum based on record deficits.
    - There is still lack of liquidity in the system. Unless your a Fortune 500 Company.
    - bottom line is WE HAVE NO GROWTH.
    - We need Government & Private Sector to start caring about America instead of dirty deals, Corruption, Lobbyists because they are KILLING AMERICA! We need to rewind 30-40 years on Regulation and get going again otherwise I'll be buying Gold Forever as the only TRUE preservation of wealth since civilization started
    -Right now all we have are iceos who come & go running Americas Largest Corporations that were built by TRUE American Ideals and these guys just pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings with huge pay and no accountability. Jeff Immelt who runs GE & Brian Moynihan who runs BAC have lost TRILLIONS in shareholder value and net worths and these guys one day leave with a few hundred million that they just got paid to do. The question is what did they do?
    - Between the 2 if they both had a 1/4 of a heart and some brains Moynihan can help fix housing & GE can innovate and bring jobs back home.
    - I can't even get into the TRILLIONS of dollars of Intellectual Property GE gave to China along with all the American jobs that went with it
    - The worst part is Obama has him as our jobs czar. I thought I would never see a jobs czar in America!
    - so if I had to choose to invest in the S&P which has gone nowhere in over 10 years or Gold Long Term I will choose the Gold. The next shoe to drop is the insurers and whole life policies and variable annuities

  • Not So Golden Years: How An Aging Society Can Impact The Markets [View article]
    Boy, You Baby Boomers Sure had it All figured Out. It w as your. Parents My grandparents both in WWII that led to the most thriving economy in them world.
    Generation X and Y Simply go to the FACTS
    Americaenergyindepende... shows 4-6% of the land mass covered with Solar would Electrify AMERICA
    If their off a few decimals then you throw wind turbines along the coast like every other country is doing.
    Oh yes then there is HYDROPOWER. That was technology we used in 1936!
    The Hoover Dam produces more than 6 BILLIOM KW of Electricity a YEAR.
    A Quantum Leap in technology. GM had an all electric car in the early 90s. Jack Nicholson was driving a car that ran on steam but when GM came out with the EV-1 TM ran frantic thus created the hybrid. TM is now the largest car company in the world and GM and F went back to their grass roots. NOTHING. They know how to make cars that run on 80 mpg for YEARS.
    Bob Lutz as GM committed crime selling his stock as an insider and coming out publicly that GM is going to be fine and the Volt will catapult them into the 21st Century. I'll be glad to say they have not even sold 10,000 Volt cars.
    FACT- We have averaged 800 new regulations every year fot the last 20 years. Thanks Baby Boomers.
    Then you decide to turn THE most important thing to the future of the America and our youth and our children's futures.
    You decide to turn EDUCATION into CORPORATION. With rising costs of food, gas, insurance, taxes, rules, regulations, every empire has crumbled within.
    For an investment thesis people will have to look at their portfolios in much shorter durations. FACT - 70+ % of ALL mutual funds do not even outperform the SPY
    The USD is going to have its consequences if Baby Boomers that sitting in our Nations Capitol of Washington DC most of which were lawyers, village and county supervisors who never earned their own paycheck and have NO clue that small business in America Employs most Americans.
    I hear lack of Demand, Uncertainty, can't this can't that.
    What came first the chicken or the Egg?
    The United States needs to do something big again. Nothing has been done in 1/2 a Century.
    We need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Plan where our trucks can run on UNG and battery and cars run battery.
    Take utility companies OUT. We have the technology to be FREE.
    LDK STP FSLR TSLA I share the vision of the Future of Elon Musk.
    Sure maybe every household pays a flate rate bill to maintain and do upgrades as needed.
    Do that and you get your money back. We are over 15 TRILLION in debt with nothing to show for it.
    With a project like this you secure our National Energy needs and give permanent stimulus to every household in America.
    In return you will see an increase in our National Saving rate and an increase in consumer spending which would help cut our deficits in the Long Term
    Politicians think each election and the real iceos think by the quarter but NOBODY is thinking LONG TERM.
    If we do not start stocks on the DIA QQQ SPYbwill trade tandem with their or near book value due to lack of any growth and as those multiples come down so will prices just like in Europe.
    Our banks were downgraded Chinas banks were upgraded last month - Bloomberg
    JPM along with 4 other banks hold approx 70+% of ALL U.S. Assets.
    And people are more worried about healthcare were AETNA JNJ PFE GSK will have to compete rather than dominate and actually use cures instead of helping symptoms. After all healthcare is 1/3 the Economy.
    So all said and done the S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years
    All large Corporations that are sitting with TRILLIONS overseas should have Moral Obligation to Invest in America as I can assure you the people who founded these companies would have and Presidents before him Harry Truman FDR Eisenhower all wanted Universal Healthcare.
    Eisenhower warned of Corporations and Politicians and the Corruption that would come.
    This is Politics and Profits now in a world that is evolving and we are not.
    Oil Entitlements Over NASA is a DISGRACE to our Country.

  • It's Time To Bring Out The Howitzers [View article]
    You cannot under estimate the Chinese. Its like underestimating your biggest competitor.
    -The Chinese of middle class and above are spending but have a much larger savings rate than Americans
    -American companies are at MUCH greater risk than just CAT & TEX. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
    -American Corporations are as short sighted for their quarterly earnings as a politician is to get re-elected
    -We have no Real Growth in the U.S. GDP Figure has been inflated to higher food and energy prices
    -China is building components for our military with contracts from Raytheon to Boeing Northrop which they are literrally and intentionally putting bad, re used and dummy parts in military applications which are putting our soldiers in harms way. No accountability to Raytheon.
    -China is now the 2nd Largest Economy in the World and they are laying their groundwork as most major economists forecast they will over take the U.S. as the largest economy in the world in less than 20 years at best. They already know our military supply chain.
    - Forbes Article Chinas Finance Minister has openly accused the U.S. & the EU for suppressing the price of precious metals
    - June of 2012 China is opening their own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy Gold , Silver , Palladium , Platinum etc in their own currency. China has purchased record tonnes of Gold this year and cut back Silver Exports by 5% and all Rare Earths. They equate the amount of debt and money printing in the world that Gold GLD / IAU should be at 5000 dollars and Silver SLV should be anywhere between 600-930 per ounce depending on demand
    - The Chinese Government recently planted bug devices in our Government Computer Systems and Servers that go to the Pentagon, White House, CIA, NSA etc. which has been in the news along with the Raytheon mess which is Embarrassing and DISGRACEFUL and you can Google or YouTube it because it shows the lack of incompetence we have here at home.

    - China only allows a 49% controlling interest where they own the majority of the 51% interest in ALL of our American Corporations that set up shop and we give and gave and continue to give our most precious commodity is our intellectual property and the theft and Piracy of it.

    - The constant devaluations of the S&P in the last few years is just the beginning as China does develop will become our biggest competitors against our largest Corporations.
    This means less Revenue, earning downgrades across the board with our Blue Chips
    Example U.S has Google - China - BIDU
    Apple - Lobovo
    GE BA DOW MSFT ORCL which they have all used Piracy.The Chinese Government took and uses Oracles Software in their own version and Boeing will have new competition in 2 years or less when they find themselves competing against the Chinese selling planes at half the price with the contracts they just signed. It just saved them Hundred of Billions in R&D and time. Quantify that from every company doing business in China!
    - The CEO of Dow Chemical said it best, the people making the products for us and are handling all sorts of parts and components are going to be the ones who will most likely be making the 2,3,4,5th Generation of products for the future.
    - They have BOTH the U.S. & EU technology and innovation that they are using as their platform and not only did we hand it to them on a silver platter, we paid them to Doug with the most unfair trading practices and more complaints with the WTO than any Country in the World.
    - The questions that I ask any economist, analyst or Dr. suess is how much in FUTURE LOSS IN REVENUE ALONG WITH ALL THE AMERICAN JOBS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY LOST AND MORE JOBS THAT WILL BE LOST WILL IT HAVE COST US FOR SHORT TERM QUARTERLY PROFITS AND NO LONG TERM GAIN.
    - We have real iceos who are now running Americas Largest Corporations that help and built this Country who pinch pennies for short term profits with no real Long Term Gain or MORAL OBLIGATION to our Country.
    - Evaluating the DJIA or SPY or QQQ, the S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years because we have had no REAL growth.
    - These are the things we should be talking about because anyone who reads this should worry about their children's and their children's children future because America is at The Tipping Point
    - I can sit here and you can look at my stock recs which have all done well but we need
    - For those who think China is in trouble then look at why Americas banks were downgraded and Chinas banks were upgraded just this week. You can just invest in FXI to get most exposure to Chinas largest Corporations like an equivalent to The Dow 30 as a less risky investment but getting the exposure to China. They are elusive and cannot be trusted. They have made their intentions very clear by their actions and plan to become the largest economy in the world and they are right on track.
    - Chanos has been wrong, Soros has been wrong and Paulson has all been wrong and they are not playing with their money but OURS. They use your money from your 401k,Mutual Funds, ETFs and they are funds upon funds that are pooled and traded ALL DAY LONG. They will buy 100,000 shares of a stock for 1/8 , 1/4 or a point and then they are out. Do the math when you do that every second of the day and leave us with crumbs of 3-5-7 % if your lucky. It's creates no growth in the country
    - ICEOs need accountability based on performance. Clearly the Status Quo is NOT working

    - America has the largest debt in our Nations History of over 15 Trillion Dollars and yet we are in DIRE straits for investment. American Corporations sitting on TRILLIONS IN CASH HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO INVEST IN OUR COUNTRY OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN GREEK TRAGEDY!

    - We do not need a "Jobs Bill" We need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Project that would be a jobs bill. A GAME CHANGER. Like The Manhattan Project. It would help pay down the deficit over the long term, it will solve our problem of Our Nations Security on Energy Policy
    - The Pickens Plan is great & Nat Gas is great but to go from one liquid gold of oil to another liquid Gold of Gas should be PART of the Solution and not the golden egg that gives the entire country a job is just nuts
    - The Recovery Rate of Employment in the U.S. Is getting longer to the point any economist or anaylst with 1/2 a brain will tell you the numbers are SCARY.
    - Its time we clean our own backyard from Political Corruption, Corporate Lobbyists that leads to A Divided House, A Divided Nation, Social Unrest and we loose sight on what is important, what is FACT and work on solutions & I would challenge anyone to debate on CNBC anytime for America!

  • Only 80K New Jobs, But Unemployment Rate Drops To 9.0% [View article]
    The Hoover Dam was built in 1936. It produces over 4 BILLIONkw of electricty a YEAR. 70 years later and a QUANTUM LEAP in technology we are still using the same Old Crap! These numbers are DISGRACEFUL. People must keep in mind that this is also the holiday seasons where employment number would come up a hair so it's not real Rocket Science. There is no chart anyone can show me that will predict the future. The bottom line is America needs an overhaul. A REAL GAME CHANGER. Americas Corporations have TRILLIONS on the side lines for "Uncertainty". One thing is certain is Government and Private Sector need to get together and put America back together or we will have our own Greek Tragedy! We have had this debate of this ridiculous 4% increase in taxes that lead to the downgrade in our Country. Unemployment is still at record levels, the government is Floored with CORRUPTION and until we fundamentally fix our problems here at home nothing will change. It will keep us right here with a divided Nation, Social Unrest, high unemployment, record foreclosures, banks not lending. American Corporations that were founded and built during the Industrial Revolution are being run by BaBy Boomers who pinch pennies for quarterly earnings with no long term view on the horizon. A 4% tax increase is the LEAST of our problems and there is no Question that OUR American Corporations have a fiduciary responsibility to invest here at home. We are loosing ground so fast before our eyes! If the founders of half these companies that are now publicly traded were still alive I would assure you half the CEOs would be fired. Eisenhower and or Roosevelt would have had the other half locked up as Communists. We do not need a jobs bill or paint a bridge. We need a National Smart Grid Infrastructure Plan like The Manhattan Project. We are still talking about going from one liquid gold of oil to another liquid gold of nat gas which is great and should be PART of a solution. The day China no longer needs us they can dump our debt on the open market and we would be a 3rd world country overnight paying 20 dollars for a gallon of gas. Not only is America giving them the technology we are paying them to do it with nothing in return coming back to the states but cheap products. They have stolen Intellectual Property Rghts, Piracy and NO Economist can answer the question that the TRILLIONS it will cost us in the future in lost revenues and American Jobs when they turn the tides and compete against us. Their own Government uses Oracles software, only difference is they copied it and made it their own. Great! China is investing 10 times more in Renewables than we are because they have a long term outlook. Our politicians long term outlook is their next election our our Corporations long term outlook is there next quarterly earnings report. The durations of recovery in unemployment from our recessions are getting longer and longer to the point these numbers are outright scary and I worked on Wall Street. Any Economist or Analyst with 1/2 a brain will tell you that. We need real Change and Leadership. Corporate America owns our government and they are the ones who really dictate Policy. That has to go to or eventually The American People will do it for them. We need to invest in America. WE THE PEOPLE make up 70% of GDP! You don't bite the hand that feeds you! Corporate America has a MORAL obligation. Our Founding Fathers would have called it DUTY! China has one interest and that is to be the largest economy in the world. What do you think they will be like then??

  • Thinking Very Long Term [View article]
    The one thing I can say is I am sick and tired of the same commentators coming on CNBC saying something different every day for the trade and the quick buck. I like Kudlow but he's gone a bit Hollywood. We have had cheap money, low tax rates, all loopholes after years and nothing has changed. I even like Joe on Squawk Box but put some new people and faces on their with new ideas. I saw one of their Guests on today and he was saying how cheap market valuations are comparing from 50 years ago. The country only grew and stocks went up because American companies and small business were thriving because we were the leading global manufacturer that we made our merchandise that we sold to the rest of the world. The scary thing was he was from Wharton! We are competing globally. I am not a gold bug or silver bug as they do not pay a dividend but I would most certainly buy SLV and GLD for the long term just based on simple economics 101 of supply and demand and DBA of course. We need American Leadership. We NEED a Neil Armstrong Landing on The Moon Moment in our Country.An investment is not trying to throw money at a problem, it is when you get a return on your investment. How about RADICAL AMERICAN THINKING - FREE ENERGY to every household. FACT- 3% of AZ land mass covered with solar would electrify our country. You would have an immediate increase in consumer spending, the national household savings rate would go up, and you would have the unemployment rate go down because business would hire right here in our own country from GRASS ROOTS demand. We would also have an actual Nation Security Energy Policy as well protect and serve America. Its time we Revaluate ourselves for LONG TERM solutions for America. If the Govt wants to throw money out you might as well just give each American Citizen a million dollars each and call it a day and make everyone a millionaire. We need to take the lead again, not look to China or Brazil for Hope. Its time the world looks at us again for LEADERSHIP. We need to take the lead again, not look to China or Brazil for Hope. Its seems like everyone's attitude that it can't can't can't be done. It can. TheHoover Dam was built 70 years ago and produces over 4 BILLION kw per year. Now 70 years later with the Quantum leap in technology FREE ENERGY is not possible? I would upgrade our electric grid and infrastructure at the same time. We have Solar, Wind Geothermal, Hydropwer etc. It's RIDICULOUS, and bad American policy and back door deals over the past 30 years have come home. We need CHANGE. Or the status quo of sending money to terrorist for our energy and sending money to the communists in China who is by the way going to be the largest economy in the world and we handed it to them on a silver platter of not only stealing our technology but we are paying them to make stand have taken our intellectual property rights and there will not be a thing we can do about it. I wonder how many trillions that will be worth in the future of loss revenue and how many American jobs that was worth. Our American Corporations own our government and dictate policy and President Eisenhower saw what over 50 years ago, in his outgoing speech he warned us that we should NEVER let our corporations sway American policy with the massive growth we had in this Vast "Industrial Military Complex". Google or utube it and I can go on because Chinas plan is to become the world reserve currency and by 2012 which is the Year of the Dragon and they do go by their culture as2011 is the Rabbit so they have been quiet but Forbes has the article that China will have their own metals exchange so they will no longer need dollars which is part of their plan to become the world reserve currency and they may go back to the gold standard and have already accused us of surprising the price of GOLD as that should be 5000 an ounce and SILVER should be 600-900 an ounce. Anyone reading this can Google it and they are setting the stage and buying PHYS gold at record numbers this year as part of their strategy for global strength. We have no fair trade agreements, you cannot own anymore than 49 percent interest when doing business with them and they are half our size and it's our money building these factories. Imagine when they become the larger economy which most economists predict. I think everyone should read Thomas Freidmans books who is well respected and should be on TV daily. I am an expert in this and I would challenge anyone on CNBC for debate for America! Anytime

  • The Fiscal Cliff: QE Slayer [View article]
    BA is simply behind the 8 ball. Innovation has been lacking for years at best and to bow down and thank China and the Middle East your multi billion dollar contracts FXI Chinas market has underperformed but they have TRILLIONS in Surplus and own many tangible assets such as OIL UNG USO stockpiles of CU JJG DBC Commodities as we have already met peak OIL and yet we already have the proven technology with using other BIOF and propulsion systems.
    Yet you BA NOC RTN sign these multi billion dollar deals with China YINN YANG which I would look to trade but do not trust them as THE GREATEST TRANSFER OF WEALTH IN HISTORY of China taking our INTELLECTUAL PROPERY and has already become our competitors.
    This is not rocket science when you take away market share and eat at earnings Corporations first step is employment which many jobs will never come back. Just look at GE MSFT INTC CSCO ORCL GM AA X etc and basically from every industry except for the American Companies that are Innovators Ex. AAPL GOOG FB who have opened new markets and created wealth from GRASS ROOTS.
    WE ARE MISSING GRASS ROOTS GROWTH. Plain and simple.
    LNVGY.PK Lenovo is just one example That China has used our technology and taken away market share in the PC industry away from HPQ and DELL making them the No.3 largest PC maker in the WORLD and yet many have never heard of them.
    China is also No.1 in owning the most PMs mines GDX GDXJ GLDX GLTR GGGG RING (All ETFs) in Precious Metals that are operating and even ones that have yet to drill with GLD PALL PTM and one of my favorite SLV which I believe is the most undervalued at this point.
    China cut SLV exports by 5% this is by no accident and are also cutting back on REE s REMX which is Rare Earth ETFs
    They are increasing in their technology and have the fastest super computer in the WORLD that even surprised the brightest here in America
    USO UNG UGAZ DBA JJA all commodities will increase in price due to higher demand and as wages here in the U.S. have been flat since the 80s there are more Millionaires in China then there are in America and China has a rising middle Class where we carved out ours.
    I'm all in favor of Free Market Capatilism but there is nothing free when you cut out a middle class and small business who cannot get loans from XLF BAC WFC USB JPM etc to grow their business while we have rising OIL UNG Gas which was almost 1/2 the price several years ago.
    We devalue the USD and the day will come when China Economy will become larger than ours and the USD will no longer be the World Reserve Currency. Where will GOLD be then? And we played right into Chinas hand to replace it with the CYB Yuan which will appreciate all on its own because their Currency will be PHYS backed by GLD so imagine the outflows of money and the inflows into China.
    One must understand the Chinese. They do not care about where their stock market goes. They think Long Term and we have iceos who come and go pinching pennies each quarter to appease Wall
    We need A MANHATTAN PROJECT. Even bigger. If The Fed wants to take 3 Trillion than CREATE A NATIONAL SMART GRID INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT. This will spark innovation with many college students who cannot get work, this will CREATE JOBS, INCREASE CONSUMER SPENDING, INCREASE THE NATIONAL SAVINGS RATE AND HELP PAY OUR DEFICITS DOWN OVER THE LONG TERM.
    American Energy Indepence did a study, If we were to take 6% of AZ land mass or Southern region of The U.S. and cover it with Solar this would electrify America and help SECURE AMERICAN NATIONAL SECURITY ON ENERGY!
    If they are off a bit then you have wind turbines that should be on each side of our coasts which NOC can use OPTT to protect our shore lines from Russia or Chinese Submarines that have come across our shores.
    China tries hacking into EVERY aspect of Americas Ecosystem both Military and Industry Daily and buy out our smaller companies that trade like AONE who has joint ventures with TSLA GM F and several others to gain and advance in Chinas Ecosystem.
    By 2040 China is estimated to have a GDP of 120 TRILLION Dollars and make up 40% of the WORLS ECONOMY.
    The U.S. is estimated to make up only 14% of the World Economy. THE BIG QUESTION. What would happen if the USD was no longer The World Reserve Currency? Then a PHYS GLD SLV bubble may come along as we loose grip and alliances in our New Geopolitical Landscape.
    My investment thesis is DBA JJG JJA DBC GLD SLV PPLT PALL GDXJ GDX GLTR GLDX GGGG RING and the best performer so far this year NUGT which I bought @7.92 premarket and you can see it in my stock recs.
    We have a broken house of government that no longer has the luxury of party politics whether your a Dem or Rep. THE PARTY IS OVER!
    It's so bad they had a Special on CNBC about it.
    We built The Hoover Dam almost 100 years ago and it produces 4 BILLION KWT of Electricity a Year and yet We have a QUANTUM LEAP IN TECHNOLOGY and there has not been anything on the drawing board nor have we built anything in over 1/2 a Century with a ROTTING Infrastructure.
    Instead of utilities companies charging for Natural Gas UNG it can be based on a flat rate depending on the amount of square footage a home or business would have and this is an INVESTMENT where America will gets its money back as a NATION.
    I'm tired of the can't can't can't crowd. Those are CORPORATE LOBBYISTS who bought our Government and own it filled with CORRUPTION and THE STATUS QUO HAS TO GO otherwise we will have our own GREEK TRAGEDY!

  • Gold Confirms Investments In China Will Eventually Be Worthless [View article]
    S&P just upgraded Chinas Banks while downgrading ours. Your article is an ILLUSION.
    We Have the most Corrupt system of them ALL.
    A system that President Eisenhower who was the only General to be President of the 20th Century displayed in his outgoing speech. It was not of happiness. It was of worry, he was worried for the future of America. You can YouTube it. He invented the word "The Industrial Military Complex" and said we should never let corporations sway our Political views and interests domestic or abroad. WELL - He were are buddy! Our Government is in a Gridlock, People are Divided, 30 years of back door deals, income inequality and ALL signs that have lead to Social Unrest which we are seeing here at home.
    Let's worry about America!
    By the way, the Chinese are building their own space station and now are the second largest holders of GOLD in the World.
    They hacked into the U.S Chamber of Commerce, last year our 10 largest Oil & GasComapnies, FBI, NSA , CIA and they are crawling all over Washington. They are now Innovating just as Japan did.
    They are now the 2nd largest economy in the world with a growth rate that dwarfed that of Japan and have more Internet usersand mobile users than we have in our entire population with all AmericanCorporations doing business in China.

    Oh yes, they are building their own Space Station Literally.

    They are forming currency pacts with Japan, UK, Russia so they do not have to use the dollar, the less it is used the more will be floating around that could potentially be a threat as a hard decline in the dollar might be GrEAT for exports with Multinational Corporations but would cripple our economy and our People here at home. We will be like Europe where they pay double what we do for gas.

    The day may come where we loose our status of the USD as The World Reserve Currency.

  • How To Earn 20% On Industrial Dividend Stocks [View article]
    The biggest risk America has is NO REAL GROWTH. We have iceos that come and go who basically pinch pennies for quarterly earnings and we are giving away our most PRECIOUS COMMODITIES which is our INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
    CAT has done great and the use of option contracts have increased by approx 20% this year alone as actual share volume in buying stocks have been some of the lowest levels on record and who can blame them.
    However this chart is a bit dangerous just as any other chart as this is based on a one year duration.
    I worked on Wall Street and I would encourage everyone to look at your portfolios in shorter durations due to economic conditions
    There is no chart in the world that can show future outcomes and as we globalize do not kid yourself when China is not re-engineering CAT machinery , BA planes, GE products across the board and we have to quantify that to most of our Multinationals.
    - the exception would be MCD , KO and a few others.
    - Long Term this is our greatest risk
    - The CEO of DOW Chemical said it best. The people who are manufacturing our iPads, kindles, smartphones, along with all these components are going to be the people who most likely going to be the ones that make the 2nd, 3rd,4th,5th etc generations of products.
    - Then you have to worry about how much market share they will take away over the long term and the competition will be fierce and eating away at our market share.
    - This is something that nobody can quantify. Nail Ferguson is one of the few Economist from Harvard who is speaking about this and the problem we face Long Term which has everything to do with CAT and the entire DJIA
    - The fact is the S&P has gone nowhere in the last 10 years.
    - When picking stocks you have to worry about management, market share, cash flows, balance sheets but within the next 20 years we need to invert our economy, fix housing and rebuild America.
    - Organic growth is our only chance to survive and stay competitive

  • The End of Growth In The United States [View article]
    ICEOs that come & go and run some of Americas Largest Corporations who pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings and are as short sighted with no NO REAL GROWTH and giving up our most PRECIOUS Commodity which is our Innovation & Our Intellectual Property

    Our biggest threat is China
    -China is building components for our military with contracts from Raytheon which they are literrally and intentionally putting bad, re used and dummy parts in military issued machines and putting our soldiers in harms way and there is NO accountability.
    - This is one example now quantify that to the Dow 30 and the majority of Americas largest Corporations.


    - China only allows a 49% controlling interest where the Chinese own the majority of the 51% interest in ALL of our American Corporations that set up shop and we give and gave and continue to give our most precious commodity is our intellectual property.

    - The constant devaluations of the S&P in the last few years is just the beginning as China does develop will become our biggest competitors against our largest Corporations.
    This means less Revenue, earning downgrades across the board with our Blue Chips

    GE BA DOW MSFT ORCL which have all fallen victim to China from Piracy and theft of Intellectual Property. The Chinese Government took and uses Oracles Software in their own version and Boeing will have new competition in 2 years or less when they find themselves competing against then selling planes at half the price.
    - The Chinese have BOTH the U.S. & EU technology and innovation that they are using as their platform and not only did we hand it to them on a silver platter, we paid them to Do it so they have a very solid foundation to build upon with the most unfair trading practices and more complaints with the WTO than any Country in the World.
    - The question that I ask any economist, analyst or Dr. suess is how much in FUTURE LOSS IN REVENUE ALONG WITH ALL THE AMERICAN JOBS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY LOST AND MORE JOBS THAT WILL BE LOST WILL IT HAVE COST US FOR SHORT TERM QUARTERLY PROFITS AND NO LONG TERM GAIN.

    - We have real iceos who are now running Americas Largest Corporations that help and built this Country who pinch pennies for short term profits with no real Long Term Gain or MORAL OBLIGATION to our Country.
    - Evaluating the DJIA or SPY or QQQ, the S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years because we have had no REAL growth.
    - These are the things we should be talking about because anyone who reads this should worry about their children's and their children's children future because America is at The Tipping Point

    - For those who think China is in trouble then look at why Americas banks were downgraded and Chinas banks were upgraded just this week. You can just invest in FXI to get most exposure to Chinas largest Corporations like an equivalent to The Dow 30 as a less risky investment but still getting the exposure to China.
    - China is elusive and cannot be trusted. They have made their intentions very clear by their actions and plan to become the largest economy in the world and they are right on track.

    - ICEOs need accountability based on performance. Clearly the Status Quo is NOT working

    - America has the largest debt in our Nations History of over 15 Trillion Dollars and yet we are in DIRE straits for investment and we have NOTHING to show for it.
    - Rotting Infrastructure, 1/3 of our Countries Bridges are deemed unsafe to drive on and underneath us Millions of Miles of Pipelines for water, gas, electric are also rotting. You need only to watch the special they had on CNBC to be disgusted on wonder where ALL of our money goes.
    - American Corporations sitting on TRILLIONS IN CASH HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO INVEST IN OUR COUNTRY OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN GREEK TRAGEDY!

    - We do not need a "Jobs Bill" We need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Project that in itself would be a jobs bill. A GAME CHANGER. Like The Manhattan Project. It would help pay down the deficit over the long term, it will solve our problem of Our Nations Security on Energy Policy

    - Its time we clean our own backyard from Political Corruption, Corporate Lobbyists that leads to A Divided House, A Divided Nation, Social Unrest and we loose sight on what is important, what is FACT and work on solutions & I would challenge anyone to debate on CNBC anytime for America!

  • Following The Big Money To Gold [View article]
    When we decided to go off the Gold Standard many years ago it basically was due to the fact that the U.S. Dollar was the safe haven of all currency around the world. Now they look at us and since we now have the largest debt of 15 Trillion dollars in debt that is unsustainable the value of the dollar naturally comes down. Not rocket science. The biggest problem is the entire world is trying to devalue their currency which is a zero sum game. Gold at 1750 can be the next leg up I'm sure w ith extreme volatility on the way. Just follow the money. Central Banks are buying and. The Elephant in the room is China is opening their own Prrecious Metals Exchange in 2012 so they can buy in their own Currency. As long as there are low rates, massive debt around the globe and money printing it will keep up the price of GLD and SLV I think is the best buy of all precious metals. You can find some great miners as prices are sustained at these levels. Even if Gold went to 1500 these Miners are going to have explosive growth. You have to do your homework as all miners are not created equal.

  • Q4 Outlook: Caution - Radioactive Markets [View article]
    There are several positions and ways to to protect your portfolio if your an active trader. SDS and SH is good but you also have the SPXU that is an inverse on the SPY and if you are bullish the SSO is up approx 50% for the year.
    For the DIA is DXD and SDOW
    And you can also SH the NDAQ Nasdaq OMX using SQQQ as the Nasdaq is a bit more volatile because of the giants of AAPL and GOOG If those 2 stocks got beaten down in the same day it will impact the NDAQ in particular
    I'm bullish on GLD IAU SLV and the Miners for the long term from the GDX GDXJ NUGT and if your bearish on the Miners you can trade ticker DUST. NUGT and DUST are much more volatile as they are leveraged by 3 and NUGT has done me well along with many of my stock recs as I was a Broker at MS and use to work on Wall Street. I own NUGT @ 7.92 S @ 2 flat HL @3.79 just to name a few. Those are not even my best.
    If you want more exposure to SLV there is USLV AGQ DBS UGLD SLVP SIL SIVR PSLV GGGG RING WITE GLDX GLTR which gives you the exposure to PMs markets with Platinum and Palladium PPLT PTM PALL ETFs and ETNs
    Another trade is FSG which is Bullish on GLD and Bearish on the S&P and there is also HDGE which helps protect your portfolio
    We have seen a recent uptick in the VXX and it is another way to trade a Choppy Bear Market so you can trade VXX VIIX UVXY TVIX and no volatility in a bull market the XIV has done VERY well this year.
    I'm keeping my : on USO UCO DIG and DUG along with UNG UGAZ which are all OIL and GASL trades and investment ETFs.

    China has made THE GREATEST TRANSFER OF WEALTH IN HISTORY as many American Companies that are publicly traded and chopping at the bit to gain access to The Chinese markets also gave away their companies most PRECIOUS COMMODITY which was their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
    Example Boeing BA signs a multi billion dollar contract with China they will never see recurring orders again because the Chinese remanufacture the planes and will sell them at a much lower cost. They even have their own version of our most advanced stealth fighter already in production thanks to BA NOC RTN LMT and who knows what else if it was their staff our China just hacked into them the same way they hacked into our Oil and Exploration Companies. They even hacked into The U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Obama recently cancelled a contract that was on the news and there was even a Special on CNBC of China hacking into DUK and the CEO admitted openly on the Senate Committee of the Energy Companies that were hacked they did no upgrades as they can't afford to eat into their earnings for Wall Street
    Multiply this when they have advanced U.S. technology along with the EUO and the entire EU and Japan has given them the LARGEST Ecosystem to build upon and throughout the world China ranks No.1 in students education, they have the fastest supercomputer in the WORLD.
    They have invested appropriately and patient waiting to buy up on a super sale in the EUO and the USD declines. Look at the UDN UUP UUPT
    They have Hacked into GOOG and have their own version BIDU One Google spokesperson said it was the most advanced thing they have seen.
    They have TRILLIONS in surplus and spending in all the right places.
    They are No.1 in owning most of GOLD SILVER PLATINUM PALLADIUM and have an OUTRIGHT MONOPOLY on Rare Earths which is essential to many things we use daily and have cut back exporting these and I think the REMX Rare Earth ETF is a great way to gain exposure on the markets.
    There is more demand in the world and despite what you here on CNBC the fact is our banks were downgraded twice while theirs were upgraded and PTR overtook XOM as the Big Oil Giant.
    Just a cuople of weeks ago a new study is that there are more Millionaires in China then there are in America and there Middle Class is on the Rise while our Government over the past few decades have carved out our Middle Class
    It's Corruption of the HIGHEST order of Congress Senators and Super Pacs whether your a Dem or Rep THE PARTIES ARE OVER.
    We as a Nation cannot afford what these politicians argue about their own personal ideology while Americans have rising Food, Energy, Property, School, Taxes Insurance Premiums, Student Debts and on and on.
    WE NEED OUTSIDE THE BOX THINKING OF MASS PROPORTION AND A NATIONAL SMART GRID INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT to create jobs for young and older to merge as one Generation worked with their hands and head and the Newer Generation with Computer Skills can spark MASSIVE Innovation Reducing Energy cost would Increase Our National Savings Rate and Increase Consumer Spending which would help cut our deficits over the Long Term
    As the USD declines so does our purchasing power and prices from everything go up including Commodities DBC DBA are essential in our daily lives and our wealth so much so that our friendly Canadians are more wealthy than American per capita.
    Our Politicians are so CORRUPT with their BS Organizations and Foundations its in OUR FACES.
    So the fact our CEOs who come and go pinching pennies to appease Wall Street for the Short Term with no Long Term view and without ANY accountability based on performance not only will BA NOC LMT RTN pray for contracts you have ORCL which China uses but ORCL does not get paid and INTC AMD MSFT the PC makers like HPQ DELL doing business in China gave them ALL they needed so they created Lenovo LNVGY.PK which is now the 3rd largest PC maker in the World.
    This is "The Law of Diminishing Returns" as the S&P has gone nowhere in 13 years.
    If you take away market share it will eventually show up in the earnings. It's not Rocket Science and yes China will have their bumps but they will also have their solutions with the TRILLIONS they have in surplus.
    The Geopolitical Landscape is changing before our eyes and water Resource ETF PHO is another way to gain exposure.
    There is also TZA TNA FAZ FAS depending how active of a trader that someone is
    Our Government needs to cut back all the red tape as to my amazement of FACT that over the last 20 years we have over 300 new regulations every year which has carved out our Economy and the average small business start up only last 18 months.
    Our companies that trade on the DIA SPY QQQ are getting their earnings from the Emerging Markets EEM and have forgotten the founders of most of these companies would be rolling in their graves as to have a Moral Obligation to have Government and Private Sector work with each other on initiatives to reform the tax code healthcare and Industries across the board as a MORAL OBLIGATION as they would not exist if it was not for AMERICA.
    To trade China is the FXI and if your very bullish there is also the leveraged ETFs YINN and YANG
    The FACT our Government chose OIL Entitlements over NASA is an Absolute DISGRACE to our Nation as NASA has created advanced telecom microprocessors to Satellite and beyond which went to the Military and eventual came to the Private Sector that created Industry here in America which is something we need the most.
    GRASS ROOTS GROWTH IN AMERICA

  • Forget About QE3, Look To The 'Fiscal Cliff' For Gold's Next Big Move [View article]
    You hit the nail on the head but here's what your missing and why GLD and SLV may increase.
    I use to work on Wall Street with several liscences and if you ask 10 economist on where the DIA QQQ SPY all these economists on CNBC you will have 20 different answers.
    It is our debt. All you need to do is look at the chart of our debt and the decline of thebusd value and the increase of PSLV and PHYS IAU / GOLD it's all there and a 2nd grader can read it.
    The higher the debt and dysfunction in our Government on BOTH sides the less confidence countries will have in our currency.
    We got lucky with the eu and the EUO where Money flows went into the dollar however China is forming currency pacts with the BRIC Nations as well as Japan and China being the No. 1 Largest Owner of Gold Mines in the World there actions speak for themselves. They think long term and our government thinks about each election cycle.
    In Europe they pay alot more for UNG that would put the U.S. straight into recession.
    The eu total deficit is 5.8 Trillion so we are running a deficit almost 3 times of the ENTIRE EU with a corrupt and dysfunctional government on BOTH sides.
    The greatest fear is China has been very open about the Yuan CNY replacing the USD as The World Reserve Currency.
    Money flows would pour into the Yuan increasing the value with Beijing having to lift a finger or policy and our Quality of Life would Diminish. Never in U.S. History have we been in this position. The very fact our politicians chose OIL Entitlements over NASA is a DISGRACE to all of us.
    As far as trading you can look at my stock recs NUGT is a great trading vehicle and the UVXY TVIX HL and GDXJ. Long term portfolio durations will no longer exist like my Grandfathers generation. Now you have to bet on the jockey as much as you have to bet on the horse on many occasions when buying long term. GE DUK PFE ED CSCO AAPL GOOG TSLA or F IAU for GOLD has a lower expense ratio then GLD but if your trading options in GLD is much more liquid.
    We are all American First.
    It's time we clean our own backyard otherwise we will have our own Greek Tragedy.

  • A Simple Formula For The Fair Price Of Gold [View article]
    This is the CRAZIEST chart I can ever see & you want to go back 200 years where their was slavery so free labor would make any country the wealthiest on the planet. Then you forget about only 50 years or so until the stock market crash of 1929 which then follows the Great Depression.
    After than we had WWII which not by fault but made this Country SO RICH. Who do you think was selling metals, concrete, cars, parts, planes, infrastructure and it was President Eisenhower who is the only General of the 20th Century That was President of The United States of America.
    His outgoing speech was not playful but a WARNING SIGN. You can YouTube it and his outgoing speech warned us and he created the word and said our Vast "INDUSTRIAL MILITARY COMPLEX" and that we should never let our political views lie with Corporate Interest as it would surely can be our demise.
    HERE WE ARE. Corruption has never been so in our face on BOTH sides of the isle with their BS organizations & BS Foundations that is KILLING America.
    I did not know this till today that our Politicians are creating an average of 800 Laws a Year for the past 20 Years! This will without any hesitation or mental reservation dampen growth in our Nation.
    We have record corporate profits without jobs. Average Americans productivity has gone up 45% because now 2 people have to work since wages are flat from 1980 but the rising cost of fuel, food, taxes, consumption of many other goods have gone up & quality of life goes down so divorce rates have been going up and has become a norm.
    In order to create an article you must know history. I am not a gold bug but I was a broker and trader in futures and commodities at Morgan Stanley.
    Why don't you pull up the chart of the dollar and the rising debt which in theory gold should be much higher.
    Many countries are trying to get out of the dollar. The S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years, in fact Art has brought a better return than stocks. It was on the Kudlow Report.
    Here comes the kicker, unless we start manufacturing again and use some type of Model of Germany and build upon it your missing the BIGGEST PICTURE.
    WE ARE LOSING MARKET SHARE!
    Ex. Boeing, GE signs a multi Billion Dollar Deal with the Chinese it will only be ONCE. You will NEVER see it come back again because China which is the market we all want to be in saves themselves 100s of Billions in R&D and got Modern Technology for Pennies on the USD. This has given then a great foundation for their Innovation & Education. The best part is they are getting U.S & EU technology which is the best of both worlds. Do not discount Eurpean Engineers.
    This is called "THE LAW OF DIMISHING RETURNS"
    Unless Corporations Unite or relocate their short term profits will lead to Long Term Losses & The worst part is we have REAL iceos who are running Americas largest Corporations who pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings with absolutely no accountability & at this point the Real Founders of these Corporations are rolling in their graves and they should have a Fidicuary & Moral Obligation to Invest in the place whence they came is The United States of America.
    If this Status Quo Does NOT Go Their will Eventually be a Revolution.
    I do not knock anyone and I commend you for your efforts on the article but You have to look at the BIG Picture and America. We have CORRUPTION that is KILLING America and its People. AA is under 10 dollars and US Steel is at 25-28 dollars, GE at 18 etc. Believeme the list goes on. That is "The Law of Dimishing Returns" Do you think Jeff Immelt cares about America?
    Do you think Larry Elison cares about America?
    I have not seen one patriotic Bilionaire do anything for the exception of Warren Buffet investing into FSLR. We need A REAL GAME CHANGER & DO THE IMPOSSIBLE. That's what America was all about yet I have yet to see anything great happen. Now we have the can't can't attitude and makes me sick. Buy Gold & Silver Miners this year and I think you would do just fine. Picking investments is easy. I out did Paulson & Soros. They just use other people's money. Give me a Billion and I'll show some returns.

  • Bespoke's Commodity Snapshot [View article]
    SLV , AGQ , UGL , GLD , IAU , ZSL , GLL Trading into these on Monday on calls and puts to spread them out you could make money on both sides of the coins all in the same month and long term to buy physical gold and silver on the dips. If your trading then you pray for this volatility as long as your on the right side but as an investor there are some good companies that you can buy which are volatile but not as bad. I think FCX , BHP , RIO which have nice yields trading at lows. What many people don't know in the mining industry is the iron ore is becoming less quality and they are having to go deeper into the earth to find these metals and demand is barely keeping up with production. Within 10 years it will be much harder to buy precious metals as governments around the world are going broke. As a result you may start to see nationalization of gold mines which has already begun with Venezuela and more countries may follow. Europe is still in trouble and the U.S. Has gone from surplus to the largest deficit in our history. China has been very outspoken and call dollars hot money and they have been very vocal in saying the U.S. Should not be the world reserve currency. This weeks newswire says China has been buying massive quantity of gold for their long term plan. Most economist say within 10 years Chinas economy will be par with the U.S. And when that comes they will become the new world reserve currency and already accuse us oft surprising GOLD and SILVER and they sayy GLD should be at 5,000 dollars and SIL should be anywhere between 6-900 per ounce. Read between the lines because when they do become the world reserve currency they will go back to the Gold Standard and those prices will be realized to their benefit. By that time we will be waking up and it will already be to late. Profit from Politics but we should care about the future of America. How about RADICAL American thinking. FREE ENERGY for America. If we took 3% of Arizonas land mass and covered it with solar we would electrify the ENTIRE country. If we did this as part of Obamas jobs plan you would see an immediate increase in consumer spending, the savings rate would increase. Businesses would hire here in the country from GRASS ROOT DEMAND and as a result of that the unemployment rate would go down and we would secure our National Defense on Energy and we would upgrade our infrastructure and electric grid and help the environment all in one shoy. Wake up America! Time for Leadership in The World.
