Less than six months ago we celebrated the forty-five year anniversary of the final death of the gold standard in August of 1971. President Nixon abandoned the restrictive link to gold so the U.S. could print unlimited dollars whenever it wished. He was able to get away with this because of a substitute America concocted to maintain strong demand for U.S. dollars.

 

They called this the “petrodollar system.” The Federal government entered into a consecutive series of special agreements with Saudi Arabia from 1972 to 1974. This arrangement ensured the Saudis would enforce a new rule for all oil trades. They would all be transacted in American dollars.

 

The deal maintained the dollar’s unique status as the reserve currency of the planet. Countries had no choice but to continue utilizing the now gold-delinked dollars in international trade. In exchange for this accommodation, the American government pledged to protect the survival of the Saudi Royal family and kingdom. This system has successfully endured for over 40 years.

Last year in 2016, the bilateral relations between America and Saudi Arabia reached all time lows. Newly minted President Trump is not going to make it any better either. He is the first American leader who is overtly anti-Saudi royal family since this convenient arrangement of the petrodollar commenced.

 

This means that the long-lasting petrodollar system Saudi Arabia makes possible is no longer a given. Even if the Saudis never decided to delink oil sales from dollars and to push the rest of OPEC to follow suit, the monopoly of the arrangement has already been compromised. China and Russia already have signed agreements and begun trading oil bilaterally in their own currencies instead of dollars. Other countries have threatened to do the same.

The system may not collapse overnight, but it is already on the way out now. It ensures a currency crisis of some sort is in the future for the American dollar and all investments priced in it. The new system will not favor dollars nearly so heavily as the present one does. When demand for a currency drops, the value of the currency declines alongside it.

 

There are only two real choices for a successor to the American petrodollar. The worst of the two is the favorite of the globalists like the International Monetary Fund. They have been slowly but steadily building up the SDR Special Drawing Rights currency for decades now, not coincidentally since about the same time as the end of the U.S. dollar gold convertibility.

 

SDRs do include U.S. dollars in a smaller quantity. Presently the SDR is comprised of 42 percent dollars, 31 percent euros, 11 percent Chinese renminbi, eight percent Japanese yen, and eight percent British pounds. The petrodollar failing is what the globalists need to substitute their SDR unit in the near future.

The other choice is for a revived gold standard. President Trump and some of his advisors like gold personally. He is also genuinely against globalism. His recent statement, “We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of globalism” reinforces this idea. This scenario would also make gold the smart choice.

Is Your Retirement Portfolio Ready for the End of American Dollar Dominance?

 

The declining U.S. dollar will mean your purchasing power for foreign goods is greatly reduced. It likely will spell trouble for the stock and bond markets where most of your traditional retirement account dollars are based. In this case, or the alternative one where a new gold standard arises, gold will be the best place to have at least a part of your retirement assets.


This precious metal outperformed the last time the global currency system changed, with the yellow metal rising more than 2,300 percent from $35 to $850 in the under ten years from 1971 to 1980. You can count on it to hedge your portfolio against any post-petrodollar scenario as well.

Now what can they expect from “Trumponomics”?

 

Donald J. Trump was officially inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. In fairness, this is a happenstance that few in the world thought they would ever see. That is, of course, except for the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for the billionaire real estate developer and entrepreneur. So, what can we expect from the new President’s economic policies and how might they benefit investors who own physical gold?

 

trump_c0-292-900-816_s885x516

During the Presidential campaign Mr. Trump offered that his policies would create 25 million jobs by revising the tax code, reducing government regulation, changing US trade policy, focusing on American energy, and cutting government spending (Source: Trump Campaign website). Let’s look at each of these.

 

The Trumponomics plan to create 25 million new jobs in the next decade is a little light on detail and maybe a little heavy on optimism. But, I’m all in on the hope that it can be achieved. The President-elect’s plan boils down to getting the US economy growing at a sustained 4% clip for the next decade. That’s ambitious – but doable.

 

Since 1950, annual US GDP growth has averaged well above 5%. This is the case even after the post-World War II boom, which as the chart above shows ended in the 1970s. The United States has experienced declining GDP growth rates since the early 1980s. But, many of the President-elect’s economic policy comments do sound Reaganesque. So, if his administration can pull it off, the United States economy could grow at rates not seen in decades.

For gold investors it is well to point out that during the Reagan Presidency the high inflation rates of the previous decade declined in a meaningful fashion. However, they remained well above 2%, which the US Federal Reserve has pegged as its target.

And, as historians will confirm, inflation is good for hard assets such as gold.

 

Mr. Trump’s promise to revise the tax code has one important component as it relates to gold prices. Reducing the corporate income tax rate ought to have the intended consequence – the repatriation of trillions of US dollars. But, it will likely have another unintended effect. The likelihood of lower tax rates in the United States will also attract foreign investment in domestic plant and equipment. As overseas companies set up US subsidiaries and pour money into the US economy, the dollar is likely to strengthen further relative to other currencies. This could put downward pressure on gold prices.

 

President-elect Trump has also vowed to reduce government regulation. In and of itself, this does not appear that it would have any impact on gold investors. But, a component of Mr. Trump’s plan to reduce government regulation is to also undo most of the Executive Orders signed by President Obama. Among interest to gold investors is Executive Order 13603, which revised and renewed Executive Order 6102 issued in 1933 by Franklin Roosevelt giving the US government the right to seize gold from private investors. The removal of this order should have a demonstrably favorable effect on gold investors.

 

The most important aspect of President-elect Donald Trump’s economic plan is his stance on foreign trade. And, this is the issue that could have the most dramatic impact on the price of gold. Just his use of the term “America First” has created nervousness among world leaders. This even though not one word of policy specifics has been uttered by anyone in the developing Trump administration.

 

The unease with the idea that America would pursue protectionist trade policies was a key component of the speech given yesterday at the World Economic Forum by Xi Jinping, President of the People’s Republic of China (Source: World Economic Forum, President Xi’s speech to Davos, January 17, 2017).

 

This is a critical issue since restricted trade, let alone a trade war, between the United States and China, could have negative repercussions throughout the global economy. Whether or not a trade war is probable, the possibility of one is likely to have a negative effect on the value of financial assets. And, for this reason alone, investments in gold make sense.

 

Another aspect of the President-elect’s suggested economic policies that could affect the price of gold is his stance on American energy. As we experienced in 2014, the collapse of crude oil prices put downward pressure on most commodities. While an economic revival of the American oil patch should not put a lasting weight on commodity prices, it may produce more volatility in energy prices. The uncertainty this could inject into the global financial system could be bad for financial assets, which I suggested earlier, would bolster the case for including gold in diversified investment portfolios.

And, finally, it is difficult to predict how cutting US Government spending might affect the price of gold. Too much cutting risks economic slowdown; too little affects budget deficits. This is a double-edged sword. Unfortunately, a double-edged sword can cut both ways. As a cautionary measure, therefore, I would encourage investors that don’t already have an allocation to gold in investment portfolios to consider it.

Dow remains above 20,000 while S & P, NASDAQ slip.

From a technical perspective, the stock market looks great right now. Yesterday the Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 32.40 points to close at another record high after hitting the vaunted 20,000 milestone on Wednesday. Curiously, both the S & P 500 and the NASDAQ Composite Index each closed lower on Thursday. And, broader market statistics from yesterday’s action on Wall Street tell an interesting story.

Among all listed shares on the New York Stock Exchange, on Thursday, decliners beat advancers 15 to 14 with advancing volume being eclipsed by declining volume by some 735 million shares. When one looks at price action in the over the counter market a similar picture emerges. Yesterday’s declining issues beat out yesterday’s advancing issues by 17 to 11. And, volume painted a similar picture, with 947 million shares trading lower on the day compared to 853 million trading higher (Source: Market Digest Online).

What are fundamentals telling us about this market?

As of yesterday’s close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading at nearly 21 times last year’s combined earnings of the 30 companies that make up the index. When one compares this to the historical average of closer to 15, the market clearly appears richly valued. Stock prices can remain expensive relative to historic norms for only so long. Either earnings have to rise to justify price levels or prices need to fall back in line with more reasonable expectations.

As it stands right now, those companies that have reported earnings for the fourth quarter of 2016 have mostly beaten expectations – at least bottom line expectation. Revenue increases have been harder to come by. This suggests is that those earnings “beats” are coming from cost cutting, not real growth. At a certain point, either earnings have to catch up or prices are likely to fall (Source: Jack Ablin, Chief Investment Officer, BMO Private Bank).

Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf (ah, bear)?

There is an old adage on Wall Street that bull markets climb a wall or worry. Yet there does not seem to be much worry out there right now. Bullishness is rampant among investment banking firms from Goldman Sachs to Merrill Lynch. There is hardly a bear to be found these days. Even the traditional measures of fear reveal that few are afraid of the big bad wolf…or in the case of the stock market…a bear. Consider the CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX.

The VIX is considered a gauge of fear in the market. It is an index derived from the implied volatility of a basket of S&P 500 options and futures contracts looking out 30 days. On Wednesday, the VIX traded at its lowest level since 2015. It didn’t move much yesterday, suggesting that there is not much fear in the market right now (Source: Chicago Board Options Exchange).

Can the market sustain a trade war?

Interestingly, the Dow has achieved its most recent milestone in the face of a growing threat of trade tensions with a number of America’s global partners. From China to Mexico the risk of a trade war is brewing. Yet, the market seems to ignore this. Increased tariffs on imports are a tax on US consumers and traditionally this is bad for equities.

Adding gold to portfolios makes sense.

All of this leads one to the conclusion that adding gold to portfolios makes sense, even in an IRA. The reasons are twofold.

Gold has long been considered a safe haven in times of trouble. And, trouble often appears when things look cheery and bright. The Dow at 20,000 is a reasonable indicator that investors believe that things are indeed cheery and bright.

The second reason is that portfolio diversification is beneficial. Over the long-term a well-diversified portfolio consisting of stocks, bonds, and cash provides protection against the risk of short-term loss inherent in an all equity portfolio. When investors add gold to portfolios of financial assets this risk mitigation is enhanced. The addition of gold to portfolios of stock, bonds, and cash can reduce the portfolio’s standard deviation of return (widely accepted as the measurement of portfolio risk) while at the same time bolstering the portfolio’s long-term return.

With the Dow at record highs it may well be a prudent move to reduce a portion of one’s exposure to equities and allocate at least some of that to gold.

Is a lower Yuan really a case of currency manipulation or is there more going on here?

By Tony Termini

 

The Chinese Yuan began 2016 at 6.4837 to the US Dollar. Today the currency exchange rate stands at 6.8995. That represents a tad more than a 6% decline in a little more than a year’s time (the higher the exchange rate, the fewer US Dollars one Yuan can buy). And, according to US President-elect Donald Trump, this is the result of blatant currency manipulation. But is it? The facts point to something else. And, that something else should concern investors more than if the Chinese government were actually a meddling currency manipulator.

 

Yuan

(Chart Courtesy of X-Rates.com)

 

Our research suggests that China is in the early stages of what could ultimately become a full-blown currency crisis. If this is the case, then the Yuan could trade as low as its 2005 level of 8.2665.

A currency crisis begins as investors lose confidence in an economy and begin to pull money out of it. This capital flight hastens a decline in the value of the local currency. We would argue that this loss of confidence and subsequent currency flight began with the selloff of the Shanghai Composite Index in June 2015.

 

1-Year Chart Shanghai Index


(Chart Courtesy of Stockcharts.com)

 

As the chart above illustrates, the market has not recovered from that decline and currently trades at a little more than half its valuation at the 2015 high.

 

As a side note, but also as a timely reminder that bolsters our case that investor confidence has not yet returned in earnest to Chinese equities is the fact that in Monday trading the Shanghai Composite Index suffered its biggest one-day loss in more than a month, falling more than 2% before recovering only after government-backed investment funds intervened.

 

We believe that the origins of China’s current economic woes were the artificial and unsustainable growth rates the economy experienced in the last decade when in some years GDP rose by more than 14% (Source: The International Monetary Fund, World Economic and Financial Surveys, November 2008).

 

Since then, year-over-year GDP growth has slowed consistently and current estimates put 2017 economic expansion at between 2.7% and 3.4% (Sources: The International Monetary Fund, World Economic Outlook Report, October 2016, The World Bank Global Economic Prospects Report, January 2017).

 

Slowing economic growth absolutely engenders capital flight and we don’t see a reversal of this trend. In our opinion, this is what is causing the Yuan to be as weak as it is. If growth continues to slacken, which we believe it will, then unemployment rates in the country are likely to rise. And, we would not be surprised if the country’s current official reports cite numbers that are slightly lower than reality. In the final analysis, if the growth rate of the Chinese economy slips further, it would be more evidence to us that indeed the country is suffering from the early stages of a run on its currency. To put teeth into that argument one only need look at China’s foreign reserves. In November, reserves hit a six year low (Source: Reuters, December 7, 2016).

 

That trend continued through the end of 2016. According to the Chinese State Administration of Foreign Exchange, official reserve assets declined by more than $220 billion in 2016. In addition to the decline in US dollars held in reserve, the country’s reserves of Special Drawing Rights decreased by an amount equal to an additional $100 billion. So, why should investors care if there is a run on the Chinese Yuan?

 

Investors should be concerned because a currency crisis in China would have major repercussions around the world. To put this into perspective it is well to juxtapose China’s current situation with events surrounding the Asian Currency and Financial Crisis of 1997/1998. In July of 1997 the Thai Bhat collapsed because a lack of foreign reserves forced the Thai government to float the currency rather than support its peg to the US dollar. This happened after a prolonged period of remarkably high economic growth rates. Those growth rates were unsustainable and eventually the strain on the economy and the country’s currency came to a head. Yet, instead of it being a local matter, Thailand’s currency crisis spread throughout the region, which in general had also experienced remarkably high, and yet unsustainable economic growth rates (Source: Federal Reserve Bank of New York, “What Caused The Asian Currency and Financial Crisis?”, January 1998).

 

What followed the collapse of other currencies in the region was a worldwide selloff in financial assets. While the selloff was not an uncontrolled panic, in the United States stock prices lost some 7% of their value in what has come to be remembered as the “mini-crash of 1997” (Source: US Securities and Exchange Commission, Trading Analysis of October 27 and 28, 1997, September 1998).

 

So, we believe that there is risk that China’s current currency problems could pose a larger threat to equity investors. And, it is for this reason that we maintain the perspective that a prudent investor should allocate a portion of his or her portfolio to gold.

According to the White House Press Office, President Obama received a classified report on Thursday regarding possible “Russian meddling in U.S. elections.”

The report comes a week after the President ordered the closure of two Russian “compounds” in New York and Maryland and the expulsion of 35 Russian “diplomats” from the country. Whether or not the report identifies a “smoking gun” proving Russian involvement in the hacking is at this point likely a moot point. The Obama reprisals are water under the bridge. What’s important now is that the situation doesn’t get any more stressed.

The risk of a renewed cold war between the United States and Russia already exists. And, this is the case even as Present-elect Donald Trump downplays the seriousness of the accusations and possibly even the validity of the intelligence behind them. Unfortunately, Trump’s opinion in this matter may not even matter

Both Democratic and Republican lawmakers agree that Russian intelligence activities in the U.S. need to be addressed and that renewed sanctions ought to be part of the country’s response. However this plays out, it could get messy. And, given Mr. Trump’s unorthodox approach to politics – and his unpredictable nature – the degree of messiness is yet to be determined.

For investors, all of this could pose problems. Wall Street doesn’t like uncertainty and it absolutely abhors political messiness. Perhaps you’ll recall the worldwide market correction that took place after the Brexit vote last June.

So, perhaps now is a very opportune time to consider adding gold to portfolios. And, history has proven that this could be a savvy play for investors. Here’s why.

The Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union lasted some 44 years, between 1947 and 1991. During that time the S&P 500 provided stock investors with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.59%.

dow-jones-100-year-historical-chart-2017-01-05-macrotrends

(Data and Chart Source: MacroTrends.com)

In comparison, investments in gold over the same 44 year period offered a CAGR of 4.90%.historical-gold-prices-100-year-chart-2017-01-05-macrotrends

(Data and Chart Source: MacroTrends.com)

To put the 1.31% difference between the return on gold and the return on stocks into perspective consider this. One thousand dollars invested in gold at the beginning of the Cold War would have grown to $8,205.81 by the time the Cold War ended in 1991 – better than an eight-fold increase in value. On the contrary, had an investor kept that same one thousand dollars in the stock market, the investment would have grown to just $4,720.46 – just a few hundred dollars more than half of what gold returned.

Okay, in fairness, that was a long time ago and U.S./Russian relations have gotten a lot better since 1991. Yet this is not the first time that the two superpowers have had issues over spying. And, such issues do tend to make the stock market nervous.

The Obama administration contends that meddling in a U.S. election goes beyond the pale of the type of run-of-the-mill eavesdropping the two nations have been conducting on one another for the better part of the last 100 years. Yet, Russian President Vladimir Putin categorically denies his country’s involvement.

So did Dwight Eisenhower in May of 1960 when the Soviets shot down an American U-2 reconnaissance plane flying over their territory. At the time, the U.S. denied the flight had been a spy mission and said that the U-2 was merely a weather plane. Unfortunately, when the Soviets produced pilot Frances Gary Powers as proof that President Eisenhower had lied, things got a little sticky. The incident fostered a level of mistrust so profound between the two nations that by October 1962, the Soviets were installing medium-range ballistic nuclear missiles in Cuba (Source: U.S. Department of State Archive).

I’m not suggesting that the current flap is likely to lead to a modern day corollary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. But, it is noteworthy that Russian foreign policy does fly in the face of American interests overseas. But, no one should be surprised by this.

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer in 2012, Mitt Romney said that Russia is “without question our number one geopolitical foe… when countries such as Iran and North Korea cross the line…when Assad…is murdering his own people…who is it that always stands up with the world’s worst actors? It’s always Russia” (Source: The Wall Street Journal).

When one tosses in the fact that the incoming President currently takes a seemingly much less “hawkish” approach to Russian mischief than many in Congress, it is impossible not to wonder what could go wrong.

Trump and Putin may indeed rekindle the “bromance” they seemed to enjoy during the 2016 Presidential campaign. On the other hand, they may not. Affairs of state require delicate finesse. Here words matter. And, a 3:00AM Tweet-rant could be construed badly.

So, in an environment that has seen financial assets rise in value some 14% in the last twelve months, much of that coming just since the election, my belief is that the market is priced for near perfection. Any little disturbance could knock it off course. A serious hiccup in world affairs could do worse.

As a result, I stay firm in my belief that some exposure to gold in a well-balanced, diversified, durable investment portfolio makes sense.

When it comes to thinking clients, many of them find that they are initially quite enthusiastic about obtaining exposure to physically held gold and other precious metals. What invariably happens is they get into a conversation with their financial advisor and begin to have cold water dumped on their heads in the form of numerous objections. The reaction from many a financial advisor to a client’s burning desire to include gold in a portfolio all too often comes down to one of several unfair responses, like:
• Gold is a dinosaur, a relic of the past, a pet rock…

• Why would you even consider owning an asset that does not pay any sort of yield?

• Gold rings are a great investment in your future, gold coins and bars are a complete waste of your time…

• Even dentists no longer use gold to fill teeth, why would you want to bother with it!

• It’s fine if you want to speculate with your money, but don’t you dare call buying (especially physical) gold investing!

Today we will go through some effective responses to help win over your financial advisor in your plan to acquire some physical gold with a portion of your retirement or investment portfolio funds. It is important to convince your financial advisor in this cause. If you do not, you can be sure that he or she will be constantly watching your gold holdings expenses versus returns and trying to convince you to cash out whenever you are underwater and your stock/bond portfolio mix is having a day in the sun.

Why You Would Want to Enlist the Support of Your Financial Advisor in your Quest for Gold Holdings in Your Portfolio

You and your financial advisor are a team, and if you are fortunate, a seamless one that works well together at that. Many of these professionals can be convinced in theory that gold and the other precious metals provide a hedge against chaotic economic times, inflation, currency devaluation, or volatile stock and bond market performances, even if they believe the yellow metal to be imperfect in practice. The truth is that they will never approve of the fact that your hoped-for physical gold inventory will never earn interest or receive dividends of any kind as would traditional asset classes.

This is why your goal is to convince them to go along with a relatively small allocation to gold, somewhere from five to 25 percent maximum. Once you get them on board with this idea, you will find your client review conversations proceed a whole lot smoother both in times when gold is basking in the glory of its outperforming traditional assets in the middle of a financial crisis or other geopolitical mess as well as when gold is down for the proverbial count temporarily. It will always be difficult to win them over on the idea of physically holding gold though, just because a smart financial advisor will not want you to have to earn still greater price appreciation in your investment just to cover storage and safekeeping fees for the gold.

Here are several good responses you can work on for the big confrontation with your financial advisor on putting a portion of your assets into physical holdings of the yellow metal.

I’m aware that it doesn’t pay dividends, but that’s not why I’m investing in it

First of all, you must be prepared for the credible and intelligent argument they will throw at you regarding the lack of dividends or interest on your physical gold holdings. You can not win this debate on its own merit. Acknowledge that you are not investing in gold to earn a steady return, rather you are interested in owning a worthy hedge against chaotic economic events or runaway rampant inflation. Gold and commodities in general are still considered to be alternative investments. These make a strong pillar in your portfolio, so long as they are not the only such pillar holding up your investments. This is why you diversify into gold holdings, not sell your entire paper portfolio to cash into a tangible yellow metal hoard.

I just need a security in case of a systemic collapse

Do not let your financial advisor tell you that gold is a pet rock only suitable as a hedge for investors who live in a small third world nation. It is true that this is a good category of investor for gold and the precious metals, but anyone who is a considering, reading, thinking person should be concerned about the possibility of a systemic crisis or even collapse even in the developed world. Remember that no empire in world history has lasted forever. In fact, most nations and empires have averaged around 250 years from rise to fall. The U.S. is as close to 250 years now as matters, and the major Western European powers are well past their average life expectancy by centuries already. No financial advisor in his or her right mind will argue with the fact that gold can and does perform well as a store of real value in times of economic and/or political distress.

Hasn’t gold held its value better and/or appreciated more than most any other asset class over the longer term?

This is a constantly debated topic, with neither side ever able to convincingly claim victory and strike down their opponents on the subject of whether gold has outperformed both inflation and the major asset classes of stocks and bonds. This chart below makes a convincing case for owning gold at least since the U.S. (and rest of the world more or less) abandoned the gold standard for the final time in 1972 under then-President Richard Nixon. Look what happened to gold prices in inflation adjusted terms from the early 1970s through the financial crisis of 2008-2009 and everything after:

goldinflationadjusted

A simpler way of understanding this argument lies in the value of gold example from one hundred years ago versus today. If in 1917 you owned a one ounce gold coin, its value was then fixed at $20 US dollars. This would buy you a high quality personally tailored suit in New York City or London at the time. Fast forward to 2017, when that same gold coin is worth over $1,100. That price will still fetch you a handsome designer or tailored suit and then leave you something left over for a nice dinner out as well. Has gold held its own value over the past century? The convincing answer is that these numbers do not lie. Has the U.S. dollar held its value relatively well in that time frame? Gold was fixed at $20 per ounce a hundred years ago. Today it rangers in the $1,100 to $1,350 per ounce range. RIP dollar.

More recently, gold has outperformed stocks and bonds in a typical 60 percent/40 percent mix of the traditional asset classes in four out of five years of the Great Recession and financial crisis from 2008 to 2012, as you see in this chart. This is the case whether you compare straight gold holdings to the traditionally mixed 60/40 portfolio or compare a portfolio with a 25% gold component:

2008-2012-periodgoldvsstocksbonds

As to whether or not it has outperformed stocks and bonds over the longer term, the answer is murkier. It depends on to which stocks and bonds you are referring. There are a number of individual securities whose underlying companies did fantastically well over the decades, such as Gillette, IBM, and General Electric. There are far more corporations and firms that failed, went bankrupt, or never really amounted to much, along with the prices of their stock shares. As far as the S&P 500 itself goes, it is easy to understand the returns on the index comparative to gold over the past century:

sp-500-five-year-performance-long-term-view-2014

What this tells you is that depending on your timing of entry into and exit from U.S. stocks, you might have outperformed gold over the longer term if you were trading the S&P 500 basket or an ETF religiously based upon it. The same is true for gold. Remember though that you are not trying to convince your financial advisor to entirely abandon the traditional two main asset classes of stocks and bonds from you overall portfolio. Instead you only want him or her to agree to let you put somewhere between five and 25 percent of your portfolio funds into physical precious metals.

Can You Name Another Asset That is Not Tied to the U.S. Dollar and Economy?

This is an argument which will leave your poor financial advisor speechless. The answer is almost resoundingly no, with the exception of international stocks and foreign corporate or sovereign bonds denominated in another currency like euros, pounds, or yen. Given the choices of gold or foreign denominated and based assets, most financial advisors will not love the idea of these foreign denominated and based assets as a hedge. Once you show them the inevitable alternatives to a physical gold hedge, they are a lot more likely to cooperate and finally see your point of view.

Then move in for the proverbial kill by asking your financial advisor, “What is going to protect my portfolio during the next financial crisis if I have no precious metals within it?” When they are silent, give them a moment’s pause for maximum effect before delivering the coup de gras with this appropriate final analogy. “If you were a football coach, would you play a team without any defensive line?” Then reassure them that you will not either.

In the final days of the Obama administration, as the transfer of power gets underway to the new Trump administration, the geopolitical world is as exciting, dangerous, and volatile as ever. The dangers from China and Russia have prompted the incoming Secretary of Defense to warn about the enormous threats to the world order. Fiat Chrysler has been caught cheating on emissions in another market rocking scandal. Hard Brexit fears are rocking the currency world again, and the Turkish Lira has just touched its all time low amid a credit rating downgrade.

Incoming American Secretary of Defense Warns World Order Under Greatest Attack Since WWII

 

Incoming President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Defense Retired General James Mattis is not nicknamed the “Mad Dog” for nothing. In his senate confirmation hearing last week, he warned that the world order is under attack. He was not just talking about the usual level of danger either. General Mattis opined, “I think it’s under the biggest attack since World War II, sir, and that’s from Russia, from terrorist groups and with what China is doing in the South China Sea.”

 

Senate Armed Services Committee John McCain followed up this line of query by asking if he thought there might be valuable lessons from history on how to handle Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia. Among his remarks Mattis mentioned, “Since Yalta, we have a long list of times that we’ve tried to engage positively with Russia. We have a relatively short list of successes in that regard.

 

The retired general carried the warning a step further by calling Russia’s meddling a direct threat against NATO and the United States. He added the United States must recognize, “the reality of what we deal with” with Russia and Putin who is busy attempting to “break” the NATO alliance. The general suggested the defense against Russia and the other American enemies will require economic, diplomatic, and military actions in order to defend the country. His revealing and direct comments make it sound like the possibility of future military action in defense of American interests abroad is now officially back on the table.

 

Fiat Chrysler In Trouble for New Diesel Emissions Scandal

 

The Volkswagen emissions scandal shook the auto industry around the world and had significant impacts on the stock of the largest German carmaker less than three years ago. Now a new bombshell has been dropped as yet another major automaker has been called to task by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA accused the Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler of installing software within the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee models which permits them to surpass their allowed pollution levels. While the EPA did not go all the way to call this program another “defeat device,” it did state that the manufacturer did not reveal their existence and purpose in advance.

 

Fiat’s stock cratered on the news as you might expect. The company is not accepting this lying down, claiming that it does in fact live up to all of the regulations and requirements which apply. It promises to work hand in glove with the incoming President and his administration in order to fight the charges.

 

The last thing the firm wants is to endure the problems that Volkswagen suffered from lawsuits on every front, including in the European Union, the United States, and Australia to name a few. Back in September of 2015, the German car making giant accepted responsibility for employing such defeat devices in its vehicles. This past Wednesday, Volkswagen finally settled on a $4.3 billion fine which brings the price tag in penalties for the scandal to around $21.9 billion worldwide.

 

Hard Brexit Fears Crush the British Pound Again

 

The Brexit slow motion divorce from the European Union is an agonizing process that seems to go away for a few weeks then reappear with a vengeance. The latest episode in the saga came from the Sunday Times report that government officials have told Prime Minister Theresa May that her upcoming comments will lead to more of a market correction. Two different sources have stated the Prime Minister is willing to walk away from the customs union and single market of the European Union if she has to in order to recover British control over both immigration and lawmaking. This forced the British pound sterling to plunge under $1.20 before recovering somewhat.

 

This drop represented only the first sub $1.20 dip since the now-infamous “Pound Flash Crash” of October. At that time, the British currency notched a full three decade low at $1.1841. The currency is not only in free fall against the dollar. It has suffered at the hands of all its proverbial rivals before this week’s long-awaited speech May will give Tuesday. Gold rose on the news as equities dropped.

To make markets still more jittery, there is a report from Bloomberg that says Her Majesty’s Treasury will talk with the major banks immediately following the landmark policy speech in order to help calm the anticipated market reaction. All that Downing street will say is that the Prime Minister is looking forward to a positive new relationship with its old partner the EU. The government looks to be increasing the toughness of its approach with the European Union despite these comments.

 

Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer, made it clear that the U.K. will do whatever is necessary in order to increase its regional and global competitiveness if the European Union will not allow it to have unfettered access to the single market once the nation withdraws. Markets have seen this as a potential warning that the British will spark a race to the bottom with the neighboring countries by slashing rules on employment and corporate taxes in an effort to retain and attract top talent and major businesses to the U.K.

 

Turkish Lira Reaches All Time Low Versus the Dollar As Moody’s Cuts Credit Rating

 

It was not only the British pound taking it on the chin this past week either. The Turkish Lira has made a new historical low of only 3.7790 versus the American dollar this past week, a day after having made a prior all time low. The Lira declined around 17 percent measured to the dollar last year 2016. This made it the emerging market with the second poorest performing currency, behind only the Argentine peso.

Turkey’s problems are complex and manifold nowadays. Most recent among them is the Moody’s credit agency cut to the national credit rating last Monday. The cut was accompanied by a negative commentary on the country’s outlook. The comments from Moody’s stated that the security risks increasing sharply over the last several years has dramatically worsened the nation’s current economic reality and future prospects. They said it will even probably lead to a greater number of bad loans which the major Turkish banks are holding.

The country’s only hope at the moment is that the Republic of Turkey’s Central Bank will ride to the rescue at its upcoming monetary policy meeting to be held on January 24th. Still, analysts are skeptical that this will save the day for the embattled Turkish lira. “The only thing that will arrest the decline of the lira at this point is a sharp hike in the 8.0 percent 1 week-repo rate by at least 200 basis points, or a miraculous turn in investor sentiment. Don’t expect any miracles,” warned SEB’s Chief Emerging Market Strategist Per Hammarlund.

Everyone has been focusing on the potential negatives to Britain for leaving the EU in their now infamous Brexit referendum decision, but up till now they have not much considered the downsides to the EU itself. This past week the painful truth regarding the severe budget shortfall the EU will soon experience when Britain stops contributing finally hit home. Scotland threatened to leave the United Kingdom if the country loses common market access to the EU. The Euro continued what is now being described as its inevitable march towards parity versus the U.S. Dollar. Scandinavia closed its last coin mint production facility as it spurns cash in circulation more than any other place on earth. These are all excellent reasons to stay long gold.

Brexit to Mean Severe Budget Cuts for Remaining EU Member States

Denmark has identified the proverbial elephant in the room that no one much in the European Union has been addressing with Britain leaving the block. Absent the second largest single nation contribution the EU budget enjoys from Britain, the EU and its remaining member states will soon have to work with a significantly tinier budget. Germany is the largest contributor every year, but they have already made it crystal clear that they do not wish to fill in the British 7.6 billion euro hole that Britain will soon leave, per the Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen. “The EU cannot continue spending the same amount of money when one of the largest countries, one of the largest contributors, leaves,” he warned.

This fiscal alarm bell speaks volumes of how acrimonious the hard talks will be for EU members after the British are gone. The common block has enjoyed spending a yearly budget of approximately 140 billions euros since the last time they agreed on the seven year budget. National governments are famous for fighting for everything ranging from research support to agricultural subsidies. The year 2020 will mark the end of the present budget period, and this will be the very first instance where the EU has been forced to cut spending. Jensen has spoken all too truly when he added that there will no longer be a place for the generous levels and types of programs which have existed so far. Chief among the programs which will suffer most grievously are the huge amounts of money the EU has devoted lavishly to agriculture in the form of subsidies to countries such as France, Denmark, and Eastern European countries. “We need to look very critically at the expenditure, even the more difficult parts,” he added.

brexit-vs-eu-budget

This is likely to increase tensions in a block already showing signs of fractures at the seams. The Eastern European member states hold on dearly to the agricultural subsidies which they count on to build their smaller economies. Key to them are the industry and agriculture development funds along with the regional development programs. All of these will likely suffer as Britain no longer contributes. In the end, the EU is likely to threaten Britain with its beloved access to the single market. If they do not keep making generous contributions, ala Norway’s model, then they will likely find themselves shut out in the proverbial cold. This is becoming known as the pay to play model for Brexit. “There’s no such thing as a free lunch, not even for a country like Britain, which has been a close ally of Denmark for many, many years. So if the EU is to stay open to Britain, then Britain has to follow the same rules as other countries like Norway,” Jensen threatened matter of factly.

Scotland Threatening to Leave U.K. If It Loses Common Market Free Access

Speaking of dangerous matter of fact threats, Scotland issued one of its own this past week. Scotland will hold yet another independence referendum from the U.K. if the British lose Scotland’s beloved and essential access to the common market, per Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. “Independence must remain an option for safeguarding our European status, if it becomes clear that our interest cannot be protected in any other way,” she warned in an op-ed piece in Sunday’s Financial Times newspaper. It is unclear if Britain will allow Scotland to hold another legally binding referendum only a few years after the last one which was convincingly decided in favor of keeping the United Kingdom together. Also unsure is how the Scottish Independence Party would garner enough votes to actually win such a referendum if they are even permitted to hold one.

Euro Heading Towards Parity as Interest Rate Direction Disparity Increases

Followers of global currency majors will have noticed that the euro versus the U.S. dollar has been dramatically declining in recent weeks. Now Dutch investment banking giant ING Group has announced that the increasing divergence in U.S. and European monetary policies will cause the euro value to decline to parity against the resurgent U.S. dollar. This past Thursday saw the euro reach a 13 year low versus the dollar as it reached as low as 1.0357.

The strength of the dollar has been powering the currency on as the Federal Reserve has been talking up a more aggressive interest rate increase path for 2017 to match the apparent pickup in U.S. economic momentum. At the same time, the European Central Bank has recently announced an additional 540 billion euros of quantitative easing stimulus injection into the staggering euro zone economies of the European Union. This is likely to only continue and increase as inflation in Europe continues to struggle to rise. “With the U.S. economy close to reaching escape velocity and sustainable two percent inflation, it will only reinforce the downside risks to EUR/USD,” ING wrote. The euro last saw parity status against the EU more than 15 years ago.

Scandinavia Moving Forward with Cashless Society

At the end of December, the last operating mint in Scandinavia will close. Denmark has elected to outsource its coin production to Finland in the example set by Norway and Sweden. The Danish Central Bank has already abandoned banknote printing domestically. They are not even in a hurry to source a replacement producer for the bills. While other countries including India and Venezuela are abandoning high denomination cash notes and bills, Scandinavia leads the race to do away with cash in circulation. One of the main arguments in favor of this strange trend to all electronic forms of payment revolves around the side effects of effectively reducing tax evasion, organized crime, money laundering, and drugs distribution.

relative-cash-in-circulation

As the chart above clearly demonstrates, Denmark and Sweden are among the countries with the absolute smallest percentages of coins and notes in circulation today. Back in 1991, checks and cash accounted for fully 82 percent of transactions in Denmark. In that time period where the utilization of physical currency has dramatically declined, the portion of the country’s economy occupied by the black market has declined precipitously by a third from even 2012 to 2014, per the Tax Ministry of Denmark. The chart below illustrates how steeply cash usage has fallen in this period in Denmark.

A cashless society is also one in which it is hard to protect yourself from economic crises and profligate government spending. This is a reason why gold will assume an even more important role in your retirement accounts than ever before as the global war on cash makes it more and more difficult to find and utilize it as an at least somewhat secure store of value.

Last week we learned that the government’s total debt has reached an incredible $19.5 trillion. Since they hit $18.5 trillion in November of 2015, this means it only took them 10 months to pour another trillion onto the national debt pile. The government managed to do this without fighting a recession or a major war.

Nearly all of the money they receive in tax receipts goes to mandatory entitlement programs and the mounting interest on all of this debt. The net result you get from this is debt financing for most traditional government programs such as defense spending, the IRS, and airport security. The government has not suffered from a shortage of lenders in the past.

This is all starting to change now. The Treasury Department’s own most current data reveals that two of the largest foreign lenders to America, China and Japan, have already started reducing their over $2.3 trillion worth of American debt instrument holdings.

The Federal Reserve has been a reliable buyers since the financial crisis as well. They have increased their debt holdings from $479 billion immediately before the financial crisis erupted in 2008 to today’s present $2.46 trillion. This is an impressive over 500% increase in less than a decade.

They will not be a reliable buyer in the future though. Thanks to Congress seizing $20 billion from the Fed at the beginning of 2016, they have a miniscule .8% capital ratio now. This makes the Fed nearly insolvent and unable to create trillions more dollars to buy debt without creating economic instability for the United States.

The biggest single holder of U.S. Treasury debt remains the Social Security fund. For decades now, the program has loaned all of its tax take surplus to the federal government. They have provided trillions of dollars to the U.S. government in these years.

The problem with this source is that both Social Security and Medicare are nearing the end of their so-called surpluses. The board of trustees from Social Security has recently explained that the two largest trust funds start delivering critical deficits in 2020. Only 14 years later they will be depleted.

This gives them only four more years to loan money to the federal government. You can see that the government is going to have to find someone else to loan it money when its largest lender disappears. Otherwise they are forced to resort to capital controls.

This is already happening in Europe. The European Union’s new banking bail in rules mean that they seize account holders’ money over certain minimums whenever an institution is in trouble. Cyprus already did this a few years ago on all accounts over 100,000 Euros.

In European and other countries where negative interest rates are the order of the day, the banks have begun passing through to customers the negative rates. Sometimes these are explained in the forms of new fees to keep cash in current accounts when they do not want to say you have to pay for the privilege of keeping money in the bank.

There is even a move gaining traction in Europe (and the U.S. is studying it) to outlaw holding physical money. This would trap money in negative interest rate banks accounts.

The writing is on the wall. The U.S. government’s debt financing situation is unsustainable. They will be looking for additional dollars to appropriate within only a few short years.

Turkey has become the centerpiece or neighbor of many of the crisis spots presently rocking the world.

It is at the heart of the developing world economy, a G20 member, an important component of NATO, a critical part in the war against ISIS, an irreplaceable partner in controlling the migration crisis into Europe, and a key player in the revived cold war with Russia.

It is safe to say that there could not be another single country in the world with more potential for kick starting a world wide economic meltdown than Turkey today.

The Failed Coup is Cause for Concern

There are a number of reasons why you should be concerned about destabilization in Turkey. First consider what just went down there. The failed military coup of a week ago did not get the media coverage it deserved.

This was no mere handful of disgruntled military officers and their battalions attempting to change the regime by force. The resulting crackdown has detained or arrested tens of thousands of individuals so far.

You have not seen the detentions limited to military personnel either. Civil servants, teachers, journalists, religious leaders, and other have all been targeted for sharing the sympathies of the coup plotters.

Turkey Is the Key on Many Critical Global Issues

The stability of Turkey is critical to the world for a number of reasons. You may not be aware of Turkey’s economic importance to the world economy and the global markets. The country represents the 17th largest economy on earth.

It is one of the leading developing market economies in the world. The nation is also one of only a handful of net exporters of food, a critical issue in a region that imports much of its food stocks.

Turkey is an important constituent of the G20. When the coup occurred, developing market currencies and stock markets all took significant hits.

A developing markets crisis sooner or later comes back to haunt the economies of the developed world and the stock markets and personal investments of people like you living in the G7 nations.

Turkey is also a critical member of NATO and a lynchpin in the campaign against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. They may not have any forces directly committed to the ongoing war against the mother of all terrorist organizations. They are letting the U.S.-led coalition utilize their massive air force base in Incirlik near the Syrian border.

Turkey is also the central player in determining how out of control the migration crisis to Europe becomes. Nearly all of the migrants utilizing the Greek Islands route into Central and Eastern Europe (over a million last year alone) start their migrant journeys in and cross through the territory of Turkey.

If they are unable or unwilling to cooperate in restricting the flow of these hapless souls trying to get into the European borders, then the European Union itself could be overwhelmed.

The EU project itself would be doomed if the over 2 million refugees currently living in Turkey decided en masse to make a go for Europe.

Probably the most serious consequence of this recent failed coup in Turkey revolves around the impact it has already had on Russian and Turkish relations. Somehow the plot has pushed Turkey deep into the affections and admiration of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The two countries that only a year ago were hardly speaking have suddenly become seemingly the best of friends.

In the new cold war that has been brewing between Russia and the West since they invaded the territory of the Ukraine, Turkey’s cooperation is crucial.

The Stability of Turkey Impacts Your Financial Stability

For all of these reasons, you should keep a sharp eye on the conditions in Turkey.

Any one of these issues has the potential to threaten the stability of the entire world order, the global economy, and worldwide as well as U.S. financial markets like the ones in which you are invested presently.

If you have not invested some of your assets into safe haven gold yet, now is the time to move a portion of them into the time tested metal. Do not delay with so much on the line in increasingly unstable Turkey.Gold vs Bonds, Which Direction Should You Take for Safety?

Has your financial planner been trying to get you to invest in sovereign bonds from various countries?

The problem with many sovereign bonds today is that an enormous percentage of them come with negative yields, meaning that you pay the often troubled sovereign country for the privilege to use your money.

This is supposed to be a favorite safe place to park your hard earned cash. But is it really so safe to lend your money to troubled sovereign countries like Japan and the various countries of the European Union?

Consider why these bonds deliver negative yields in the first place. How did it come to pass that sovereign countries can require you to pay them to utilize your money?

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan would have you to believe it is because of competition.

His thoughts on the matter: “Whenever you see strong currencies in a normal market, they’re spread against say Spain and Italy’s 10-year notes, it’s relatively stable through time. But as the rates overall go down, clearly at some point as the rates go down you’re going to pick up negative rates for the highest-quality currencies – like of course the Swiss franc – and I think that this is just a passing fancy.”

Greenspan can call it like he sees it, but does this justify you putting your hard earned investment dollars into vehicles in which you pay to participate?

The Real Reason So Much Sovereign Debt Pays Negative Yields

The numbers of negative debt yielding sovereign bonds that you see offered today are truly eye watering.

Two years ago almost none existed. In February of 2015, the entire amount of global debt with negative yields amounted to a “mere” $3.6 trillion. One year later by February of 2016 this amount had practically doubled to reach $7 trillion. Less than a month ago, it reached $11.7 trillion. Now it has achieved a staggering total of over
$13 trillion
per last week’s published calculations of Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

That now exceeds 50% of all government debt issued on the planet! If this is just a temporary new normal that Greenspan believes, then why is the trend of negative sovereign debt continuing to double in ever shorter time frames?

The answer is not one which will inspire confidence in you. The Bank of Japan and European Central Bank have been increasingly engaged in massive quantitative easing. In an effort to jump start failed Japanese and continental European economies back to growth, these central banks have been throwing everything including the kitchen sink at their economies.

These central banks are busily printing money (debasing their currencies) and using this money to buy up sovereign and even corporate debts now in an effort to prop up the markets. The governments then take these extra proceeds to use as spending money to try to boost production and GDP within their own sinking economies.

The byproduct of this activity to bolster sagging and even stagnant economies results in falling government sovereign bond yields. More printed up money demand for these securities leads to ever lower and lower yields.

So in the vast majority of cases, sub-zero sovereign bond yields do not represent higher quality, no-risk government bonds at all as Greenspan would have you to believe. Instead, they reveal the nations
that are struggling the most.

Think about it, and it makes perfect sense. Japan has been caught in a downward deflationary stagnation spiral for more than two decades now. They continue to throw money at their bond markets and banks in an effort to increase economic activity.

Yet after years of doing this, the economy has not at all improved. Do you really consider Japanese sovereign debt
tied to an economy that has not materially grown in nearly twenty-five years to be safe haven
debt?

Look at the EU and its national countries’ sovereign debt. This largest economic block in the world has not yet reached its former GDP and growth levels seen just before the financial crisis erupted in 2007/2008. This is more than five years after the crisis officially ended!

You might be able to make a case that sovereign bonds from countries such as Norway, Switzerland, and Sweden are more likely to be safe haven places to park your investment dollars. Yet if things are so rosy in these countries, why do they need to issue government debt at all?

The answer is that there is no such a thing as safe haven positive yielding sovereign government debt. Gold is your safe haven destination of choice.

No government can print or effectively manipulate gold. While it may not pay a yield, at least you do not have to pay anyone to keep your money invested in it.

US Printing $85 Billion Per Month

 

Did you know the Federal Reserve is printing $85 billion per month of new money through a program called Quantitative Easing? This is the 3rd round and like all the last programs it has to come to an end. Did you know this could be one of the greatest investment opportunities since the financial crash of 2008?

Let me explain…

The last time they ended Quantitative Easing 2 was June.31, 2011 and at the time gold was sitting at $1500 per ounce while silver was sitting at $34 per ounce. In less than 2 month of ending Quantitative Easing 2 by August.22, 2011 gold skyrocketed to over $1900 per ounce while silver moved to over $46. If you do the math that is a 35% increase in silver and a 27% increase in gold in LESS than 2 months! The reason this happened is because gold and silver are the ultimate hedge against the devaluation of the dollar and as they print more money… gold and silver become extremely valuable.

The time to buy gold and silver is now. If you are like me and you do not have immediate cash available to purchase gold and silver… then do what I did. I discovered a way to take an existing retirement account and move it into physical gold and silver you can hold, completely tax free WITHOUT your financial planner.

United States the next Cyprus?

Did you know that in the past they have reset the financial system in the United States? When this reset occurred millions upon millions of Americans lost their hard earned wealth in the blink of an eye. The grim reality is that this could happen again in the near future. Signs of this happening again in the United States are all over. Earlier this year the Cyprus government tried to levy all bank deposits in their country and all depositors were set to lose 6% of their deposits and 10% if they had deposits over €100,000. This desperate move made by government was used to raise money for the growing sovereign debt issues in Cyprus.

The sad truth is that the United States is not far off for Cyprus. Earlier this year Detroit declared bankruptcy and 20 more cities may face the same reality. The writing is on the wall. In a recent news article from Bloomberg it revealed that Washington is looking to regulate IRA and 401(k) accounts and if approved would require all private holders to invest a percentage of their account in a U.S. Treasury debt-backed government annuity.

If you think you are helpless against the coming times… you are WRONG. I have made it my personal mission to find a loop hole that could protect my retirement account in the coming times and I want to share it with you. Did you know that the last time they reset the financial system in the United States the price of gold increased overnight by over 40%?
