    Sven Henrich: It's Make Or Break Time For The Markets

    Stocks are poised to break big, one way or the other

    It's make or break time in the markets cautions Sven Henrick, technical analyst and lead market strategist for Northman Trader.

    His weekly flurry of trendline charts warn that the major indexes have been compressing in rising wedges that increasingly point to a binary outcome: either a massive new leg up that will result in the market making new all time highs, or a bad breadown that could waterfall into a 2008-style correction.

    His reams of data increasingly suggest that today's global elevated asset prices are in no way justified by the fundamentals of the underlying world economies. And that someday — perhaps quite soon — a reckoning long overdue will occur.

    A Primer On Investing For Inflation-Adjusting Income

    How to build sustainable passive investment income
    by Adam Taggart

    Executive Summary

    • Understanding the benefits and risks of the notable options for passive income:
      • Cash & Cash Equivalents
      • Bonds/Loans
      • Dividend-Yielding Stocks
      • Real Estate
      • Business Ownership Through Private Equity/Private Placements/Local Investing
      • Royalites
      • Annuities

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Primacy Of Income, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    “Financial independence” is defined by most as having enough passive income to cover all of your living expenses. While a worthy goal for all of us, even partially achieving that state will make your life tremendously less stressful than the hundreds of millions (in the US alone) who fall far short of it — and will only fall farther behind during the next deflationary wave when asset prices fall, job losses spike, and government subsidies become more scarce.

    In Part 1, we laid out the rationale for why investing for income is becoming more important than ever as the Era Of Gains draws to an end.

    Those who put in place a diversified portfolio of relatively low-risk passive income streams, inflation-adjusting and tax-advantaged wherever possible, should be much more financially resilient than the general masses after today's Everything Bubble ruptures.

    The good news is that there's a variety of options worth considering when constructing such a portfolio of income streams. Here in this primer, we identify many of the most noteworthy along with their general benefits and risks.

    The challenge, of course, comes in the application of this information. Which options are best for you, given your specific situation, needs, goals, and risk appetite?

    As always, let me make a few things absolutely clear. The information presented below is NOT personal financial advice and is provided for educational purposes only

    And as always, we recommend working with a professional financial adviser to build an investment plan customized to your own needs and objectives. (If you do not have a financial adviser or do not feel comfortable with your current adviser's expertise in the market risks we discuss here at PeakProsperity.com, consider scheduling a free consultation with our endorsed adviser)

    Suffice it to say, any investment ideas sparked by this report should be reviewed with your financial adviser before taking any action. Am I being excessively repetitive here in order to drive this point home? Good…

    With the above said, the primer below should give you plenty of food for thought for how you may wish to design your own income-generating portfolio.

    Running out of gimmicks to goose 'earnings' growth

    So, did the nauseating last few months of 2018 signal the end of the secular bull market? Or is the rebound that kicked-off 2019 a sign that the uptrend is still intact? Or it is just a dead-cat bounce?

    Lance Roberts, chief investment strategist and chief editor of Real Investment Advice, returns to the podcast with fresh data that suggests the bear market that emerged late last year is still in play.

    Of greater concern to him, though, is where things are headed from here.

    Is This Downturn A Repeat of 2008?

    Crashes differ, so be cautious about your assumptions
    by charleshughsmith

    Monday, January 7, 2019, 9:50 AM

    Are we in a repeat of the global financial meltdown and recession of 2008-09? The sharp drop in equities is certainly reminiscent of 2008. Indeed, the December decline is the worst in a decade. Or are we entering a different kind of recession, the equivalent of uncharted waters?

    And if we are entering a recession, what can central banks and governments do to ease the financial pain and damage? We can’t be sure of much, but we can be relatively confident central banks and states will respond to the cries to “do something.”  This poses two questions: what actions can central banks/states take, and will those policies work or will they backfire and make the recession worse?

    Scott Tinker: Can The World Energy Supply Become Fully Sustainable?

    Just possibly, but we'll have to make HUGE changes
    by Adam Taggart

    As we claim often here at PeakProsperity.com: Energy is everything.

    Will our global society be able to transtiton off of its extreme dependence on fossil fuels? And if so, can we do so without too much pain?

    Scott Tinker is the Director of the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin, and founder of the non-profit Switch Energy Alliance, which is dedicated to helping humanity address these key questions.

    Tinker remains confident a much better future energy-wise is possible; but will require a tremendous shift in behavoir, investment and technological innovation.

    In his eyes, society can make the transition. But will it? That's a lot less certain…

    Will Your Retirement Efforts Achieve Escape Velocity?

    Sadly, most of us will outlive our savings
    by Adam Taggart

    The concept of 'retirement', of enjoying decades of work-free leisure in your golden years, is a relatively new construct. It's only been around for a few generations.

    In fact, the current version of the relaxed, golfing/RV-touring/country club retirement lifestyle only came into being in the post-WW2 boom era — as Social Security, corporate & government pensions, cheap and plentiful energy, and extended lifespans made it possible for the masses.

    But increasingly, it looks like the dream of retiring is fast falling out of reach for many of today's Baby Boomers. Most will outlive their savings (if they have any at all).

    Will you?
