    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.

    The Importance Of Knowing

    Without insight, action is useless
    by Adam Taggart

    At Peak Prosperity, we strive to help people advance in three key areas: KnowingDoing and Being.

    Doing and Being are the resilience-building steps we recommend. Helping folks develop their own personal action plans in these areas is the main focus of the seminars we run.

    But Knowing? That's the essential first part to master. Without sufficient understanding and insight to guide you, any action you take is merely groping in the dark.

    Are You Infuriated Yet?

    You should be. I certainly am...

    Both the pension and health care crises are infuriating and self-inflicted wounds.

    We could have avoided them by making wiser choices in the past. We didn't. We could limit their damage by making better choices today. We almost assuredly won't.

    Anybody who studies the system and its math comes to the same conclusion: the corporations have all the power and they are misusing it for private gain.

    An easy prediction to make is that this simmering anger of the populace is going to start boiling over more violently in the coming years. Welcome to the Age of Fury.

    Too Good For Too Long

    Over-extended systems contract quickly & violently
    by Adam Taggart

    Having just lived through the massive fires in northern California — on top of watching news reports over the previous weeks of similarly abrupt "before/after" transitions in Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico City, Las Vegas and Catalonia — I have a new-found appreciation for the maxim that when it arrives, change happens quickly — usually much more quickly than folks ever imagined, catching the general public off-guard and unprepared.

    We humans tend to think linearly and comparatively. In other words, we usually assume the near future will look a lot like the recent past. And it does much of the time.

    But other times it doesn't. And that's where the danger lies.

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

    How watching the right indicators will avoid disaster
    by Adam Taggart

    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.

    Dangerous Markets Webinar

    Featuring Grant Williams & Lance Roberts
    by Adam Taggart

    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

    Richard Sylla: This Is An Inherently Dangerous Moment In History

    Low interest rates are causing distortions & mis-allocations
    by Adam Taggart

    "The rates we’ve had in recent years, including right now, are the lowest in history. The book that I co-authored on the history of interest rates traces back to the code of Hammurabi, Babylonian civilization, Greek and Roman civilization, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and early modern history right up to the present. And I can assure our listeners that the rates that they’re experiencing right now are the lowest in human history."

    So says Richard Sylla, Professor Emeritus of Economics and the Former Henry Kaufman Professor of the History of Financial Institutions and Markets at New York University's Stern School of Business. He is also co-author of the book A History Of Interest Rates

    We invited Professor Sylla onto the podcast after hearing his work favorably referenced by the panel convened at the recent hearing held by the US Congress titled: “The Federal Reserve’s Impact on Main Street, Retirees and Savings.”

    Based on his deep study across the scope of millennia of human history, Sylla warns we are at a dangerous moment in time.
