    Hard working professionals often aren’t as financially successful as we think they are.

    They find themselves much more of a slave to their paychecks than they want to be. While the financial freedom they dreamed of when starting out on their career continues to remain an elusive goal.

    New Harbor: A Time For Staying Out Of Harms Way

    Preserving your financial capital
    by Adam Taggart

    Given the brutal start to the markets in the first three weeks of 2016, we thought it a good time to check in with the team at New Harbor Financial. We have had them on our podcast periodically over the past years as the market churned to ever new highs, and have always appreciated their skepticism of these liquidity-driven ""markets"" as well as their unwavering commitment to risk management should the party in stocks end suddenly.

    So, how is their risk-managed approach faring now that the S&P 500 has suddenly dropped 8% since Christmas? Quite well. Their general portfolio is flat for the year so far — evidence that caution, prudence and hedging can indeed preserve capital during market downdrafts.

    We've invited the New Harbor team back on this week to hear their latest assessment on the markets, as well as how they're approaching their portfolio positioning moving forward.

    Jim Rogers: Turmoil Is Coming

    Predictions on the markets, gold, Greece & more
    by Adam Taggart

    Two years since his last interview with us, investor Jim Rogers returns and notes that the risks he warned of last time have only gotten worse. In this week's podcast, Jim shares his rational for predicting:

    • increased wealth confiscation by the central planners
    • a pending major financial market collapse
    • gold's return as the preferred safe haven investment
    • more oil price weakness, followed by a trend reversal
    • Russia's rebound
    • a China bubble reckoning
    • agriculture's long-term value

    For Heaven’s Sake: Hedge!

    If you're not positioned defensively by now, you're nuts
    by Adam Taggart

    Last fall, I wrote an article titled Defying Gravity that warned of the absurd price levels that stocks and bonds had risen to. Less than a month later, the stock market abruptly dropped by 7%. Those who didn't seek safety in advance were left licking their wounds, panicked not knowing if the painful down-draft was over.

    So here we are roughly six months later, and the same warning bells are ringing — just louder this time.

    2014 Year in Review

    The year we piled up risks like a global game of Tetris
    by David Collum

    I have not seen a year in which so many risks—some truly existential—piled up so quickly. Each risk has its own, often unknown, probability of morphing into a destructive force. Groping for a metaphor—I love metaphors and similes—I feel like we’re in the final throes of a geopolitical Game of Tetris as financial and political authorities race to place the pieces correctly. But the acceleration is palpable. The proximate trigger for pain and ultimately a collapse can be small, as anyone who’s ever stepped barefoot on a Lego knows.

    New Harbor: Hedging 101

    How to defend against a market correction
    by Adam Taggart

    This week’s podcast build on our recent report on hedging, driller deeper into how the technique can be used to offer protection against falling asset prices.

    There are numerous ways to hedge, which vary in cost and complexity — with several being quite simple and low-cost (such as building cash or employing stops). But many investors don’t practice them, mostly out of unfamiliarity. Which is a shame, as often a small degree of defensive planning can provide substantial avoidance of large losses. (In fact, our recent poll has discovered that one of the most common and cheapest methods of hedging — setting stops —  is hardly used by PeakProsperity’s readership.)
