Who’s Going To Eat The Losses?

The only question that matters regarding today's markets
Friday, September 8, 2017, 11:25 PM

Younger generations that are being asked (goaded?) to step into an increasingly flawed future begin to resist. Which is completely understandable. They have nothing to gain if the status quo continues.

At the same time, the older generations mostly just settle into a stubborn insistence that everything will be fine if everyone will just do more of precisely what got us into the mess in the first place. Younger people should step up to make sure Medicare/Social Security/pensions remain fully funded, and buy the financial assets and homes of downsizing seniors at top dollar. The boomers have everything to lose if the status quo changes.

What happens when a culture’s dominant narratives are not just unsatisfactory, but entirely unworkable?  » Read more

Van Halen, M&Ms, And The Next Market Downturn

How watching the right indicators will avoid disaster
Friday, September 1, 2017, 7:28 PM

Believe it or not, the rock band Van Halen found a brilliant way to teach how having good indicators is key to achieving success.

This is extremely true for the world of investing, where you're deploying capital based upon an expected future return. How do you determine when it's a good time to enter into an investment? Once in it, how do monitor the conditions supporting your rationale for holding it -- are those changing? And if so, are they getting better or worse? When should you exit the position?

For all of these questions, the better the indicators you use, the more accurate and informed your decision-making will be. And the better your returns as an investor will be. » Read more

Dangerous Markets Webinar

Featuring Grant Williams & Lance Roberts
Tuesday, August 29, 2017, 2:31 PM

By an increasing number of metrics, today's financial markets are more overvalued than we've ever seen before. The price-to-sales ratio for the S&P 500 has never been this high. The same is true for its price-to-earning-growth ratio. Interest rates have never been this low -- in 5,000 years of human history!

Which is why, via our new webinar platform, we're giving you insider access to two of our favorite world-renowned market experts, Grant Williams and Lance Roberts, who regularly produce some of the most valuable -- and actionable -- analysis and commentary on the financial markets, the global economy, and the future actions of the central banking system.

The event itself will take place on Wednesday, September 13 at noon EST/9am PST. It will last approximately an hour and a half.

The price to participate in this webinar is $25, unless you are an enrolled member of PeakProsperity.com (i.e. paying subscriber with access to our 'Insider' content). In that case, it's FREE» Read more

Harvey Is A Major Still-Unfolding Disaster

How many Texans wish they had done more in advance?
Monday, August 28, 2017, 2:27 PM

Superstorm Harvey continues to wreak epic damage to Texas, particularly Houston.

But it’s not the wind, it’s the rain. Epic, record-breaking, unbelievable amounts of rain.

It’s entirely possible that the entire region will not get back ‘to normal’ for months, if not years. » Read more

Why The Shale Oil "Miracle" Is Becoming A "Debacle"

Dispelling the magical thinking behind the hype
Friday, August 25, 2017, 9:21 PM

The central point of this report is that the US is deluding itself when it comes to energy abundance (generally) and oil (specifically).

The bottom line is this: The US shale industry resembles a fraudulent Ponzi scheme much more so than it does any kind of "miracle". » Read more
