Debt doesn’t matter…

That’s a slogan that’s gaining popularity among economists.  It’s music to the ears of politicians on both sides of the aisle.  It gives them permission to continue their out-of-control spending…
Of course, we’re talking about the national debt.  The U.S. now owes $26 trillion and has another $153 trillion in unfunded liabilities.  It’s hard to imagine a number that big … A trillion dollars has 12 zeros.
In one sense, the economists are right.  The debt doesn’t matter – because it’s never getting paid back.  The government will continue to print more money to pay the interest for as long as it can get away with it.
The system of ever-expanding debt works great for politicians with election promises to fulfill, and for people and corporations on the receiving end of the dole.
But if you’re reading this, chances are it doesn’t work so well for you…

and It’s Market Update: August 1, 2020

The recent ascent of gold and silver prices have many talking, and for good reason.
Due to the convergence of five major factors, we’ve got you covered on what’s propelling prices higher, and why each metal still has much more room to run.  [Get the details on this week’s historic rise here…]

Forget $1,911 – Gold Soars Towards $2,000 (And Silver Climbs Even Faster)
After blowing past the prior record set in 2011, many experts predict gold will soon reach even greater heights.  Here’s why they say the run is far from over.  [Read Here]

“Dollar Debasement” Driving Gold’s Record Rise, Says Goldman Sachs
After facing downward pressure for years, the dollar has begun to crater in recent months, contributing to gold’s historic ascent.  Here’s what could be next.  [Read Here]

After Record Week, Next Stop $2,300 Gold and $30 Silver?
The recent ascent in prices have our customers talking, and for good reason.  Here’s what’s propelling them higher, and why each metal has much more room to run.  [Read Here]

Gold currently at $1,978.64 (+3.9% over last week), silver at $24.51 (+7.1% over last week)

SAY OF THE DAY

“Investors have focused on a rise in record prices for gold, but silver’s up nearly
25% in July — the metal’s second-biggest monthly gain on record — and it’s still
undervalued compared with the yellow metal.”

Being liked by people is often considered more important than having authority or talent. (There are some individuals who don’t have much skill or intelligence, but they are successful because people love them and would do anything for them.)

Doctors spend more time with patients they like; they ask them to come back more often for further check-ups.  Judges or juries give lesser penalties to guilty parties whom they like.  Students learn faster if they like their teachers.  People like doing business with people they know and like.

The more friends you have, the better your chances of having more people like you.  Having many friends means that you have a support group and safety net who you can rely on – and ask help from – any time you need one.  Here are 10 ways to make people like you very much, they include:

    1. I need a bigger nest egg Give sincere compliments.
    2. Focus on them and their interests.
    3. Smile genuinely.
    4. Say these three magic words more often. (I like you!)
    5. Offer value.
    6. Share your secrets.
    7. Make him/her laugh.
    8. Find similarities.
    9. Mirror him/her.
    10. Conform to his/her primary sense or senses.

These ten techniques will not fail you in making anyone like you …  A Lot More!  (The more activities you participate in, the social events you attend, the more you mingle, the more face-to-face meetings … exposure and familiarity relaxes people.)  Volunteer your time and expertise!  People like to help other – they really do.  Most of them will appreciate and remember what you’ve done for them and return the favor.

Law of reciprocity.¹  🙂

¹ It’s considered by many to be the most powerful law of human nature.  Basically, it states that, “If you do something nice for me I’ll do something nice for you.”

Nice words for nice prospects.

Certain words and phrases make it easier for prospects to accept what we say.  Here are some examples.

  • “If you are like me …”
  • “I am not sure if this is for you.”
  • “This may not be your cup of tea, but …”
  • “How would you feel if …”
  • “I bet you are a bit like me.”

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

01-JANUARY 21-2022

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
