    Executive Summary

    • My recent portfolio changes & the rationale behind each
    • 6 strategies for positioning your portfolio for the next market downturn
    • Deciding which strategies are most appropriate for you

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Realistically, What’s Left To Power Asset Prices Higher?, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    This is an update to the premium report Assume The Crash Position issued in March of this year. It details the changes I’m now making in my portfolio, which  build off of the logic used in the two earlier short positions I notified Peak Prosperity insiders about.

    The first was back in fall of 2018, which yielded a 50%+ return when the market fell between October and September.

    The second yielded similar 50%+ gains when stocks fell in May of this year.

    But before continuing further, let me make a few things absolutely clear. This is NOT personal financial advice. This material is for educational purposes only, and as an aid for you to discuss these options more intelligently with your professional financial adviser(s) before taking any action.

    (If you do not have a financial advisor or do not feel comfortable with your current adviser’s expertise with the investment vehicles discussed in this Part 2, then consider scheduling a free portfolio review/consultation with our endorsed advisor)

    Suffice it to say, everything discussed in this report should be reviewed with your financial adviser before taking any action. Am I being excessively repetitive here in order to drive this point home? Good…

    Ok, with that said, here are the specific new positions I have taken in my portfolio… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Sven Henrich: It's Make Or Break Time For The Markets

    Stocks are poised to break big, one way or the other
    by Adam Taggart

    It's make or break time in the markets cautions Sven Henrick, technical analyst and lead market strategist for Northman Trader.

    His weekly flurry of trendline charts warn that the major indexes have been compressing in rising wedges that increasingly point to a binary outcome: either a massive new leg up that will result in the market making new all time highs, or a bad breadown that could waterfall into a 2008-style correction.

    His reams of data increasingly suggest that today's global elevated asset prices are in no way justified by the fundamentals of the underlying world economies. And that someday — perhaps quite soon — a reckoning long overdue will occur.

    Tuning Into Reality

    Here's the hard data that they *don't* want you to see
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, February 22, 2019, 5:48 PM

    8

    Executive Summary

    • The central banks are the key players at this stage. When they fail, the system will fail.
    • How today's Frankenmarkets are poised to collapse
    • Where we see the most convincing signs that the global economy is now falling into recession
    • Why we should expect bad times to lead to even worse decisions

    If you have not yet read Part 1: We're Living In 'The Groundhog Show', available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    The reason I still get angry and frustrated from time to time is because we’re just wasting very important time and resources that really ought to be dedicated to other pursuits.

    As I watch the US electorate recklessly lurch from one emotional outrage to another, I truly wonder if this is really just the emergent outcome of how events spread virally — or if it’s not something more intentional and sinister. Is this all a program designed to keep people revved up but pointed in the wrong directions?

    So if you find yourself increasingly feeling that things are really off track, that’s probably because you’ve also been paying close attention to the news. Whether by design or default, this doesn’t speak well to our ability to rally effectively to address the many massive predicaments society faces.

    As an ex-Facebook executive said about the nefarious aspects of the social media phenomenon he helped to create, “No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth; you are being programmed.”

    That closely matches what I am seeing in the online world now. And it’s really unfortunate, because the stakes are so high. We really need to begin preparing for a very different future.   

    Which is hard, if not nearly impossible to do in a fractured and polarized world such as the one that’s been emerging over the past few years.

    The central banks are at the very center of it all.  The financial markets have taken on a new significance in the world and are now one of the prime, if not the prime, signaling mechanisms used by central planners to communicate with the world.

    So it's critical to understand that the most important factor in play is…

    Off The Cuff: A Matter Of Desperation

    The Powers That Be are out of options that work
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, January 17, 2019, 9:23 AM

    24

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and James Howard Kunstler discuss:

    • Zig-Zag Markets
      • There's a war going to keep prices propped up
    • A Matter Of Desperation
      • The central planners are out of tricks
    • The Masses Are Getting Angry
      • And are turning their ire on those in control
    • Our Broken Political System
      • Furiously focusing on all the wrong issues

    Jim Kunstler returns to share his views on what's ahead in 2019. Like Peak Prosperity, he sees the coming year as one when the forces of reality start to re-exert themselves after a decade of magical thinking.

    Those in control of the system have juiced it as hard as they could for as long as they could, and now the limits to that 'extend-and-pretend' era are quickly becoming visible. And the bottom 99% is beginning to realize that not only was the “prosperity” of the post-GFC recovery largely fraudlent, but what there was of it went as spoils to the elites. Expect further social outrage like we're currently seeing in France to boil over into many other countries in the coming months.
