Financial Trends in Early 2018

 
Gold, Bitcoin, and oil have been up while the rest of the market was waiting for the Consumer Price Index reports to come out. But the stock market rose 200 points on the day after losing 300 points, likely on the expectation of central bank intervention and the Federal Reserve. The overall forecast on the economy has been rosy, but the retail numbers are telling a different story.

US retail sales unexpectedly dropped when they were predicted originally to rise in January of 2018. The retail sales in holiday spending of December 2017 were flat when compared to the previous year. Gold prices were up 2% because of the inflation that is set to pour in when interest rates go up. US household debt has risen to all-time highs at the same time.

Volatility in the emerging markets due to weak currencies and high debt

 
The recent massive drop in stocks could be the end to the Trump rally which lasted for an entire year in 2017. Cryptocurrency has picked up recently adding back $100 billion USD to its overall market capitalization in what appears to be a recovery for cryptos at large.

The US government budget proposal shows a real lack of fiscal conservatism while at the same time Trump is applauding a $.25/gallon raise in gas taxes. This is going to be a real burden on the average American consumer, the same consumer that is not benefiting from all-time stock market highs and the 95 million Americans not participating in the labor market, but still not officially counted as unemployed.

With the outrageous distortions in the economy, don’t count on mainstream media or the US government to protect your retirement account. Only the banks will be bailed out, you won’t. For this reason it’s a great idea to use this 2nd chance of a stock market stabilization after its 3,000 point drop to look into a IRA gold rollover.

Russia still being blamed for America’s election results

 
Even without proof, the insane political atmosphere in the US is relying on claims that Russia somehow tampered with the US Presidential election without any real proof. It’s a sad day when they think that a few posts on social media by Russians could somehow sway the average American of sound mind to vote any one way.

At the same time US airstrikes in Syria is being reported to have killed up to 100 Russian soldiers, who were legally invited in by the Syrian President. American forces are still illegally occupying Syrian ground with a troop presence of 2000 soldiers.

Gold and Silver Could See Unprecedented Price Rises in the next 5 years

 
Silver is set to rise in the next 5 years dramatically due to supply and demand factors, which sees a strong industrial need for mankind to innovate towards a more green economy. While gold and silver seem to be stuck in a trading range, copper and other metals have gone up significantly lately, but lack of manipulation in the more industrial metals could account for this.

Silver supply has faced multiple deficits in recent years, thus making it a bit strange that the price has not already risen, but readers of our blog already know the recent for this. As for gold, according to Jim Rickards, the amount of toxic debt laden paper currency floating around the globe demonstrates in theory that gold price is severely undervalued and could be the great equalizer in resetting the global monetary system.

Gold Mining Production Tough Times Could Be Over

 
A lack of demand in gold mining and silver mining was experienced in recent times but now mining stocks are picking up again, which reflects the possibility of what Ron Paul said when he stated a gold bull market is just around the corner.

Additionally, huge consumers of silver like Samsung, Toyota, and other technology giants are going to need more silver in the coming years. All the good news for gold and silver means owning the best gold IRA is advantageous indeed for the average retail investor.

Gold Price Boosted by Inflation Concerns

 
Cyclical commodities like silver and gold are seeing price surges with recent Federal Reserve comments about raising interest rates due to an “overheating economy”. A dollar bear market along with equity volatility are seen as the catalysts for silver being on pace to have a record year with gold following close behind. The fundamentals are strong and Gold ETFs are seeing a lot of incoming investments.

While gold ETFs are the preferred choices of holding gold for the Western world, physical gold demand remains high in Asia and other parts of the world. This is why holding a Gold IRA is so important as you can get the benefits of holding gold and the inherent tax benefits along with having a custodian store the gold for you until you’d like to take delivery.

Bitcoin is also seeing a recent uptick from its most recent lows where it touched off of the $6,000 price point, and now sits about $10,000 per BTC. Cryptocurrency and physical precious metals remain the last few vestiges of monetary freedom away from the fiat currency system.

Forecast for the Price of Gold in 2018

 
With the recent vertical spike in Bitcoin and gold hovering around the same point it has for several years, it’s looking like gold and silver are due to catch a rocket in 2018. With the dollar bear market and closer examination of the market and price action fundamentals for gold, the monthly charts for the Dow Jones and its exponential, parabolic growth in the last few months are spelling potential doom for stock market and equity prices.

Stock market correction could hit $18,000 for DJI

 
Experts are predicting the market’s top heavy status to see a near term reversal in the coming year. A rollover of stock prices is expected as the stock market has made unparalleled record highs in 2017, while the US dollar has lost about 12% of its buying power.

What does this all mean for Gold and Silver?

 
Short term gold and silver may appear somewhat weak at first glance, but looking past the superficial veil of the metals market demonstrates that according to technical analysis, we’re seeing a price for silver coiling up and being primed for a massive breakout to the upside. As is usually the case, gold and silver prices follow each other and with a “stable” US dollar i.e. weak dollar and over priced stock market, with bond yields going flat, gold and silver could see some significant buying activity and price upticks in the medium to long term future.

2018 is shaping up for gold pretty well, so this is good news for people who are considering investing in a Gold IRA rollover.

Charles Nenner – Buy Gold, Market Crash Coming

Charless Nenner suggests stock market crash is on the horizon

 
Charless Nenner is calling the stock market as a top right now and is correlating the 4.1% official unemployment rate to a potential upcoming market crash. When looking at the facts, Nenner is deciding that the bull market end is closer than the pundits and “experts” on TV will expect.

While the market may not see the bottom fall out of it immediately, the recent weeks in the stock market have proven that a 1,000 point drop in equities and stocks is more than just a theoretical possibility. On the heels of a year of stock market records with a Q1 2018 1st month hyperbolic rise in prices of stocks, Nenner is suggesting that the market may turn sideways but the overall direction of the market should be sideways action with a massive low expected in 2020.

Most people are following the herd when it comes to investing

 
According to Nenner, he believes that inflation is going to rear its ugly head but we will also see deflation. He expects that the price of oil and natural gas will come down, but that gold and silver will see a major buying opportunity in mid 2018. Most people however are not ready for the stock market to go nowhere for a few years if not much lower, and even see funds pouring back into the bond market.

With a raise in interest rates, Nenner predicts that bonds will be a buying opportunity in 2018. While this move is relatively controversial compared to the average investor, he believes this is sound strategy and planning keeping the concept of market cycles in mind. He does not understand why people would be going long the market at this point.

2018 could be a big year for the gold IRA

 
If the market goes down and people sell off, gold will be a perfect opportunity for investors looking for something of value to hold and not wanting to be in cash. Home builders are already seeing 25% losses in their stocks indicating the housing market is seeing less demand, which could be the canary in the coal mine tipping off those waiting on the sidelines to get into a Gold Individual Retirement Account.

Nenner thinks that the stock market could go down all the way to $5,000 which would represent a loss of over 75% of the entire value in equities and stocks. Nenner has worked with several investors who have historically been able to pull out of the markets before an ominous crash.

Gold cycle is bottoming in mid 2018

 
People should realize, according to Nenner, that you buy gold to hold and maintain value, but he also predicts that gold could see a rise of 200% in 2018, especially in the midst of global political instability. He is considering holding gold for a year to a year and a half minimum.

The Truth About The Stock Market Crisis. Prepare Yourself.

 
The recent drops in the stock market could be a preview of things to come as the US government and Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing policies officially end, with the Fed Reserve still tossing banks billions of dollars to remain liquid even as they raise interest rates for the first time in 10 years.

Free Houses for Minorities?

 
The federal government started buying up mortgage backed securities after a massive round of handing out loans to unqualified home buyers under the Obama era. After the program was seen as a failure, it’s been quietly swept under the rug, while artificially propping up home prices to even higher highs, now making home ownership out of reach for many Americans.

The Federal Reserve has also been notoriously buying up bad investments and its own Treasury notes in an attempt to artificially keep the markets stable after terrible policy decisions made based on political correctness. In essence a massive scheme and a scam, all the bond-buying an securities the government has been purchasing is a de facto stimulus program, or another bank bailout. The government is officially guilty for trying to meet diversity programs and encouraging banks to lend to unqualified buyers, and it has caused a massive housing bubble that is ready to pop.

$85 Billion in buying up debt per month in 2013

 
The government buy-ups of failed securities and instruments hit a peak in 2013 when the US government started buying up 85 billion every month of them. Imagine the wider effects this artificial picking of winners and losers has had on the average American, with many Americans now having no chances of home ownership. And this shakedown and shake-out of real potential buyers has resulted in the banks and the government owning the private property that Americans should be owning.

Under any other political system this might be called communism. But in America, it’s called stimulus. With all the irresponsible actions of the central bank and the government, there has never been a better time to get an IRA rollover to gold, since the stock markets are largely dependent on the banks and the Federal Reserve, whose actions demonstrate this type of manipulation does not last forever. Consider 2008 if you need more proof of what happens when a few big companies get bailed out for their irresponsibility, and in the process create a nation of renters.

2018: Things To Come for Stocks, Cryptocurrencies, Gold & Silver – Mike Maloney

 
When trying to look into the future, it’s best to use the lens of history, according to Mike Maloney. Low volatility could be the quiet before the storm as reported by a Yale expert economist. In the last 20 years, the VIX volatility index for stocks has seen record lows in an extremely short period of time, in just the last 2 months.

Many people are speculating that the Federal Reserve and the government are actually shorting the VIX in order to keep the VIX price down. The VIX is a measure of how unstable the markets currently are, and allows traders to invest in another instrument though it can be identified as a warning signal as well.

The VIX tells the tale of how retail investors get slaughtered by the big guys on Wall Street

 
Because the VIX is showing such a lack of volatility, or at least it was until the end of January when the market dropped 3,000 points, that’s when most investors should be taking action in the opposite direction of the herd, according to Mike Maloney. The current streak of low volatility is a telling indicator that people should prepare for a market correction. Matched with a lack of market pullbacks and the P/E ratio of stocks hitting near all-time highs, the market is looking like less of a safe bet every day.

The fair value of a stock i.e. a reasonable price-to-earnings P/E ratio for a stock is 12 to 15 times revenue for the price of a share of stock.

We have not visited the undervalued area for stocks, not even close, yet.

 
Maloney predicts that the Federal Reserve’s stimulus and artificial propping up of the stock market with zero % interest rates, the lowest in history, will ultimately become ineffective very soon, and the market will reverse to fair value.

So What is Undervalued? Cryptocurrencies and precious metals

 
At this time it will be very advantageous for anyone who has decided to get a 401k or gold ira rollover to protect their hard-earned wealth and retirement accounts.

This Amazing Chart Shows Bitcoin Investors Diversifying Into Gold & Silver – Mike Maloney

 
In the last few months lots of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency has been flowing into gold. Crypto investors realize by and large that the crypto market is extremely volatile, however there is a solid undervalued market floor/bottom for precious metals, thus making gold and silver a great investment forking opportunity for people holding Bitcoin.

I’ve said in previous posts that Bitcoin investors would do well to take some profit and put it in gold. And now we’re seeing just that. With the markets overvalued along with the housing market and recent drops in the bond market, cryptocurrency along with gold and silver are primed to launch.

Best ways to invest in gold and silver

 
I myself hold cryptocurrency and precious metals because I strongly believe a weak US dollar, stock market highs and a housing market that’s seeing less customers every month going into 2018 creates the perfect environment for the crypto market which has a very low market cap and precious metals which have hovered at their relative lows for several years to explode to the moon.

Most people may not want to hold 10 pounds of silver or gold at their house, and that’s understandable. Still, people with ETFs and IRAs or 401Ks are going to want to consider taking a partial rollover to Gold IRA to receive the tax benefits as well as storage by a custodian until they choose to take delivery of the physical metals themselves.

One thing’s for sure, 2018 is shaping up to be one heck of a year for Bitcoin and Gold, regardless of which one you hold.

Rob Kirby – Bankers Will Send Gold and Silver Prices to the Moon

 
If they stop pushing the price of gold down in the markets with paper shares, the elites fear the rise in the price of gold would lead to mania and a loss of confidence in the current fiat monetary system, according to Rob Kirby in a recent interview with Greg Hunter. The Federal Reserve and the central bankers have been dumping paper contracts for gold with the London Gold Fix and on the COMEX to artificially suppress the price of gold and silver, but their ammunition is getting less effective by the day.

“They have lost the power to smear the market the way they used to” says Kirby, largely due to the fact that entities around the world like in Asia are buying up physical gold at an insatiable rate. The end-game of this is that the Western world will not be able to fix the price of gold and silver to an imaginary number to maintain the teflon appearance of the US dollar intact.

The appetite for physical metal in the East is enormous, and it’s not going down any time soon. The demand for gold in the US/Canada is very small compared to Asia, where it’s difficult to acquire tons of gold and silver. But times are changing, and the reason why is because the entire world is getting fed up with the “Fed” itself.

We’re going to experience precious metal being put on the blockchain

 
Monetary elites will see that “crypto-ized metals” will finally present a force that can defeat the manipulation in the Western based fiat monetary and banking system, bringing much-needed reality to the entire physical metals market. Most gold and silver metals investors and traders are already privy to the fact that a large amount of underhanded chicanery.

The US has also been relying upon the fact that oil must be purchased in US dollars, but with China creating the petro-yuan set to release in March of 2018, the US dollar’s days of freeloading off the backs of the rest of the world’s economies could be coming to an end.

Right now, no one can really redeem shares of SLV and GLD except for the bullion banks like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs, in theory, and the process is shrouded in mystery. It’s ambiguous for a reason according to Kirby, and I think readers of our blog can see why. This is why putting precious metals on the blockchain stands to eliminate the selling of paper shares for metals that may not even exist, or selling the same piece of gold on paper 100 times.

This is why instead of investing in Gold ETFs on the stock market, putting your money into a gold backed IRA is the best option for holding significant amounts of gold and silver without having to store it all in your woodshed behind your house, though the option for taking physical delivery is there should you choose to hold it yourself.

$21 Trillion USD Unaccounted for by the US Government

 
More than an entire year’s worth of US GDP is missing from only 2 government departments. Dark money that is not accounted for is thought to exist in the government’s coffers for manipulating and propping up the current status quo like the US stock market, bond market, housing market, as well as cover military actions abroad.

Kirby and Greg Hunter both speculate that large amounts of dark money distort the true figure on the amount of circulating US dollars in the world, and they say the elites do this for a reason using offshore banks and foreign entities. This could explain how the bond market is getting rescued on a daily basis in the markets, which is evident on the charts and technical tracking indicators.

Bed bugs may be the furthest thing from you mind right now. At least I hope they are. For many people, however, they are indeed top of mind, because many people around the world cannot attain a good night’s sleep due to the tiny parasites which used to be the things of nursery rhymes, but are now the things of nightmares.

Bed bug products can be bought online instead of Wal MartFrom causing people to wake up from itching and scratching, to eventually ending the expectation to have a solid 7 – 9 hours of uninterrupted REM sleep at night, bed bugs are the root problem for a lot of sleeplessness being experienced by folks regardless of location or income.

To make matters worse, they are very hard to kill. And this is exactly why I wanted to give a short list of facts to help people out there get rid of bedbugs.

Bed bugs treatment

 
Bed Bugs treatment starts by tidying up your home and vacuuming the seams and cracks of your mattress, box spring, carpet, bedroom, sofa, and anywhere else something could be hiding near your sleep area.

Bed bugs signs

 
The first bed bugs signs are usually bites. When people notice bed bug bites they usually assume spiders, mosquitoes, rashes, etc. and this loses valuable time.

Bed bugs bites

 
Bed bugs bites are normally very small, red, and in large groupings. For instance, bed bugs seem to love the neck and face area and will leave a cluster of 10 – 20 bites when they decide to stop for dinner. These bites often turn into large red rashes on the skin and when people scratch them, it can turn into skin damage.

Bed bugs symptoms

 
Bed bugs symptoms, aside from the bites, include clusters of black specks and tiny black dots in and around the mattress seams and between the box spring. You may also find areas of splotchy brown, red, and black along with the shells of bed bugs when they shed their old skin, as well as egg casings. This is usually where the bedbugs congregate during the wee hours before looking for food.

Bed bugs bites pictures

 
Bed Bugs Bites pictures look like this:

Bed bugs spray
 
The obvious knee-jerk reaction is for people to look for some type of bed bugs spray. This is because we have been conditioned through marketing as well as other psychological factors associating firearms with killing things, to look for some type of firing mechanism to kill insects on contact. However, this is a futile and illogical endeavor, as this will not kill bed bug eggs or the bed bugs hiding in the walls or between the mattress.

How to get rid of bedbugs

 
Ultimately, when discovering how to get rid of bedbugs, you will want to avoid the high-priced exterminator who will often expect you to shell out thousands of dollars and even sign onto a monthly contract. You’ll also want to bypass buying products that don’t kill the eggs like bed bug sprays, as well as chemicals that could harm you or your pets.
