    At this point, as go the leading Tech stocks, so go the markets.

    So much capital has crammed into the tech sector this year that it boggles the mind.

    But we’re now seeing a trajectory that we’re familiar with — a near-vertical blow-off top.

    It’s hard to find an asset class that has performed better in 2020 than gold and gold mining stocks.

    As we committed to last week, this week’s video focuses on the precious metals and the exceptional performance gold is exhibiting right now after many years of disappointing returns.

    John Rubino joins us this week to discuss the implications of the massive price bubble the Fed continues to blow in stocks and bonds.

    His command of history shows that what’s happening today has plenty of historical precedent, and always ends in painful currency crisis and social revolt against the ruling elite.

    Will this time be any different?

    For weeks now, we’ve been warning that the ongoing melt-up in the markets isn’t sustainable. The higher it shoots, the more painful the inevitable correction will be.

    Well, yesterday (Thursday, June 11) was certainly painful…

    Mess with the bull and you get the horns…

    That’s the continued lesson this uber-distorted market is beating into investors: Don’t doubt the rally; it will never end.

    Which is why now is one of the most trying and trecherous times in history for investors.

    Off The Cuff: Waking Up To A Changed World

    Covid has unleashed decades-worth of transformation all at once
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, June 1, 2020, 5:03 PM

    10

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • How covid has accelerated decades-worth of change
    • Why industries & social behavior are permanently affected
    • It will take years for the new landscape to stabilize
    • Why the economic pain and inequality will lead to greater social unrest

    Covid-19 has forced an immediate and permanent transformation of the global status quo, and we are in the early stages of understanding exactly how. But it is becoming clear that the pains involved will not be over quickly and that things will take years to stabilize.

    Wolf explains how everything from jobs, to home prices, to social behavior, to financial assets will continue to be buffeted well into 2021, and how the actions of the Federal Reserve are exacerbating the complaints of injustice that underlie the multiplying protests around the nation.

    Market Update: Decision Time!

    The window to act before the next market break is likely very, very short

    As the market continues to seek out its maximum stupid price limit, it’s now decision time for investors.

    If you’re still long stocks and bonds at this point: Do you now sell to protect your gains?

    If you’re skeptical of today’s prices and sitting in cash: Is now the right time to start shorting the market?

    If you’ve recently been laid off: Do any of the new options offered by the CARES Act that enable you to access retirement funds without penalty make sense for you?

    With markets this overextended, your window of time to take action will likely be quite brief.

    REPLAY VIDEO: ‘Ask Anything’ Q&A Webinar

    Watch Chris & Adam field *more* questions from PP subscribers
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 24, 2020, 6:45 AM

    12

    Here’s the replay video of Friday’s “Ask Anything” Coronavirus/Market-Meltdown Q&A webinar #3.

    Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as these historic challenges we face remain fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    Don't fall for them; now more than ever

    Last week’s observed bearish engulfing has so far proved a non-event as the markets continue to reach maximum stupid heights lifted by Jerome Powell’s recent soothing remarks to the nation on 60 Minutes.

    The trouble is, so much of what Powell said in that interview just isn’t true.
