    The Waiting Is The Hardest Part

    Tom Petty's anthem for today's investors

    The stock market is now 70% higher than it was as the previous bubble peak immediately preceding the 2008 Great Financial Crisis.

    Reflect for a moment how painful the crash from Sept 2008-March 2009 was. How much more painful will a crash from today's much dizzier heights be?

    Answering Your Requests for a Recommended Financial Advisor

    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, September 26, 2011, 2:18 PM

    One of the most frequent and urgently-voiced questions we receive from our readers is: “Can you recommend a financial advisor, ideally one aligned with the “Three Es” outlook of the Crash Course?”

    And with the turbulence in the market over the past year — most notably the huge price swings in the stock market and precious metals in the last two months alone — we’re seeing a notable increase in demand for these investment manager referrals.

    Which is why we spent the better part of this year performing due diligence on a number of advisors to find a firm we felt comfortable endorsing. I’m happy to report that we’ve finally selected one.

    Key criteria in our search were:

    • investment strategy
    • experience
    • quality of customer service
    • trust

    Here’s how Chris announced this in a post to our enrolled users earlier in the month:

    What Should I Do? The Basics of Resilience (Part 7 – Protecting Wealth)

    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, August 24, 2010, 10:13 PM

    Note:  This article is part of a series on personal preparation to help you answer the question, “What should I do?”  Our goal is to provide a safe, rational, relatively comfortable experience for those who are just coming to the realization that it would be prudent to take precautionary steps against an uncertain future.  Those who have already taken these basic steps (and more) are invited to help us improve what is offered here by contributing comments, as this content is meant to be dynamic and improve over time.

    Graduates of the Crash Course series emerge aware that, economically speaking, the next twenty years are going to be completely unlike the last twenty years.  This invariably leads to the question, “How do I prepare financially?”

    We have entered some truly treacherous investing waters, where we must question everything and accept nothing, even (and especially) the base assumption that any given currency, be that the US dollar or euro or Yen, will retain its value.  Is a ‘double-dip’ recession coming?  Nobody knows for certain, but all the warning signs are there.  Our view is that it’s best to start thinking about preserving and protecting your wealth now, while you still have that opportunity.  The bottom line here is that you should not be taking your cues from what your neighbors seem to be doing, but instead being sure that your own house is in order.
