Recession is Now a 75% Probability According to This Leading Economic Indicator

Recession Now a 75% Certainty

 
Some other points mentioned in the video include:

*84% of CFOs surveyed predict a recession by 2021

The survey surprised the surveyors when so many CFOs were in near total agreement that a recession would be here by 2021, if not sooner. A global slowdown is in effect, however the American and Western mainstream media will not touch this topic. It’s always about Trump and either what he’s doing or not doing. In other words, just more fake news.

*Fewer young Americans getting drivers licenses

While getting a driver’s license used to be as American as applie pie, Generation Z’ers are now enrolling in driver’s education courses at later ages, and fewer are going to the DMV to get that all-coveted freedom pass. With Uber, Lyft, and limited resources to include insourcing menial wage jobs to foreigners and immigrant workers (some illegal), the average American 16 year old is now competing heavily with men twice their age who are willing to practically kill themselves to do the same job.

*Labor market supply oversaturation keeping wages flat

Again, globalism reveals its ugly head, with many Americans entering the workforce later for jobs that pay less and offer fewer hours, while women joining the workforce and letting in massive amounts of immigrants more than doubled the labor market, thus driving down prices of labor since the 1970’s.

*Real inflation and CPI around 7 – 10%

The government has consistently changed the way it keeps tabs on metrics such as inflation and the CPI (consumer price index), even going so far to ignore the cost of basic goods because at the end of the day, the Federal Reserve is not there to do anything but protect the global banking elite and keep Wall St looking good.

*Millennials can’t afford to buy homes, have too much debt

With a lack of good jobs, millennials are graduating college with record student loan debt that many will never be able to pay back working a “normal” job. When I waited tables, I encountered a bartender who told me she had over $100K in student debt. I nearly collapsed when I heard that and she said it as casually as you might ask for an extra napkin when having lunch.

*10,000 baby boomers retire every day and need to be wary of market downturns

With 10,000 people becoming 64 every day over the next couple of years, a baby boomer will benefit from being mentally and psychologically prepared to protect their investments, 401k and IRA while they still can. Ensuring that once you leave the workforce your investments are more heavily divided into lower risk assets while being ready to sideline your stock holdings into cash are one way to prepare. We offer a free gold IRA investing kit to help people with this as well.

How to Protect Your 401k or IRA from a Stock Market Crash

How long do stock market crashes last? How long does it take to recover your losses once a major market downturn occurs? What % of your 401k/IRA should be in stocks/bonds/cash?

With so many Americans leaving the workforce to retire on a daily basis, and over half of them heavily invested into the current stock markets through their current 401k or IRA, it is becoming increasingly important for new retirees to develop a plan to survive an incoming recession.

The next recession is already underway in this blogger’s opinion, going off of economic fundamentals such as slowing retail sales, the Federal Reserves’s decision to stop raising interest rates even a little bit, housing prices dropping and new home starts decreasing, as well as other indicators such as record corporate debt, record personal debt, record student loan debt, and record auto loan defaults.

Fortunately there is still time, but how much time, is anyone’s guess. So for now, retirees should be mentally prepared to adjust their portfolios at the onset of the next recession, since they are not likely to be able to continue working to wait out the market for a recovery, as many unfortunately had to do in 2008. Since it takes an average of 6 or 7 years for stock prices to recover (if the stocks’ underlying company did not go bust during the crash), most people simply cannot afford to hang out in the workforce until they’re 70 years old.

So here’s some things you can do either right now or when you’re reasonably sure the recession has begun in the stock market. Remember, the stock market is not always a good indicator of the real economy, and may be the last domino to fall.

How to Protect Your 401k or IRA from an Impending Stock Market Crash

 

*A general rule is to have your age in bonds

If you are 60 years old, then around 60% of your holdings should be in safer financial instruments such as bonds and treasuries. The rest could be in stocks, though even that gets riskier as the recession approaches.

*Be ready to convert your stocks into cash and sit on the sideline for the time being

While it’s impossible to time the market, as the clock ticks on, it becomes clear that no business expansion cycle lasts forever. The current expansion cycle, largely boosted by central bank manipulation like quantitative easing as well as corporate stock buybacks and tax cuts for the wealthy, is about to break the record for the longest boom period in market history.

A retiree/potential retiree could start selling off their stocks gradually now and getting into cash in a money market fund or money market bank account. Remember, there is a difference between the two, as the former is not FDIC insured, but is still considered relatively safe

*Take advantage of the only remaining bargains on the market

Gold and silver remain historically undervalued and have found price stability for the last 5 years. While precious metals don’t always go up in price/value tremendously when the economy appears to be doing well, once the recession hits and investors flee to the exits, you can expect metals to go up once again as the Federal Reserve bakes more inflation into the US dollar.

One great way to invest in metals is to invest 30% of your current IRA or 401k into a Gold IRA rollover. We offer a free kit on this site to qualified investors. Just click the link below to find out more.

Americans Are Having Less Sex and Jewelry Stores Are Closing Down Across the Nation

Major Jewelry Stores Closing Down in Large Numbers in the US

 
Record numbers of Americans have stopped having sex as jewelry stores across the country close their doors. Add this to the fact that more peope in their 20’s still live at home with their parents, and you will see the true state of the economy right in front of your bedroom eyes.

In what should come as unexpected news, more retail outlets that were once dependent upon the now waning American middle class are shutting down as the consumer is simply tapped out. This comes on the heels of the worst retail quarter since “the Great Recession of 2008 – 2009”. But this time, the experts in the mainstream media won’t be able to blame this massive round of closures on a shift of consumer sentiment and habits to online shopping.

After all, how many women do you know would be impressed to learn you bought her engagement ring off Amazon.com?

In addition to this, and also not surprisingly, Americans polled in a recent survey are having less sex in the last 30 years. To me this is just one more indicator of the true state of the economy. Less money, less dates, less home buying by the younger generations, less opportunities, less marriages, less babies, and yes, less sex- all things to expect during a period of bleak economic activity, just as it was in the Great Depression.

Other Economic Factors That Point to an Upcoming Recession

 

*Unfunded liabilities mean 100+ trillion in national debt

Think the national debt is only $22 Trillion? A deeper look into the balance sheet shows that with unfunded liabilities such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the average American owes a whopping $700,000 to be able to pay all this off.

Of course, we know this will never happen, and the current financial system marches on, but it won’t last forever, just as no world reserve currency in history has. Eventually, inflation will eat away at the purchasing power and global acceptability of the US dollar, and a reset will occur- hard or soft landing notwithstanding.

*Malls seeing less foot traffic since August of 2018

Foot traffic in malls peaked in August of 2018, and again, this has more to do with people not having disposable income than a shift in online sales. The slowdown is a global one, and we can expect more retail closures as 2019 rounds the halfway mark. So far we’ve had more retail closings in 2019 than the entirety of 2018, so it’s not looking good for those who think we can avoid a recession.

*US auto sales drop in Q1

With the average price of a car increasing $1,000 year-over-year since 2018, less consumers are opting to sign on for a loan to buy a new car. While this price increase represents a 3.1% change, we are told by the Federal Reserve that inflation is only 1.9%. But they wouldn’t lie to us now, would they?

*Trump calls for more quantitative easing and lower interest rates

It seems that even Trump knows the economy has run out of steam. A 2016 candidate once called the stock market a bubble, but President Trump applauded the bubble he inherited once taking office, and now he wants to keep air in the bubble.

*Washington D.C. experiences highest level of gentrification

If you were worried that the size of government was getting smaller, don’t worry, there’s no chance of that and the current gentrification leader in the nation is Washginton D.C. It would appear that $4.7 Trillion dollar annual US budget is not going to waste among government workers, as they move into new neighborhoods and buy up condos in the beltway.

*Gold will do very well in a recession, analysts predict

With all the market manipulation, the one shining star left that is not massively overhyped and overvalued remains precious metals like gold and silver. Sure, they aren’t sexy and they may not make you tons of money during supposed economic good times like we’re having now (yet people aren’t having sex? huh), but gold and silver are in a perfect position to rise during the next economic downturn and as the Fed prints money to infinity.

Don’t miss out on a golden opportunity to load up on precious metals with your portfolio while you still can before their price goes through the roof.
