    In this week's podcast, Michael Pento, fund manager and author of The Coming Bond Bubble Collapse, explains how the United States is fast approaching the end stage of the biggest asset bubble in history.

    New Harbor: Now is the Time for Discipline in Protecting Wealth

    Lower stock & bond prices ahead
    by Adam Taggart

    The stock market has been on an upward streak for the past two years, with the Dow and S&P near their all-time highs. Recently, though, they've shown signs of toppiness. And certainly, the macroeconomic risks loom larger than ever. Where are equity prices most likely to go from here?

    Interest rates on bonds have nearly doubled off of their historic lows from a year ago. That puts downward pressure on bond market prices, as well as a tremendous number of other important asset classes, like housing. Where are interest rates most likely to move next?

    For these (and other) reasons, the current environment is extremely challenging for investors.

    Warning: Stocks Likely to Crater from Here

    Losses of over 50% (!) may be in store
    by Chris Martenson

    I don't relish the job of constantly pointing out the risks to the equity markets. But since few on Wall Street seem willing (or able) to do this, I'm "making the call" for a market correction, as enough variables have aligned to indicate a high likelihood of stocks heading downwards from here.

    I've only given one other such warning about equities before, and that was in March of 2008, when I warned of the possibility of a 40% to 60% decline in stock prices by Fall. I am making a similar call today, with the understanding that I am usually a bit early to the game with my views.
