The smart money, the kind that moves first at the slightest sign of trouble, is on the move again. In a market I’ve previously reported on. A market I call the “off-the-grid” market. I can’t say I blame these savvy investors. If I had the kind of money we’re talking about, I’d be doing the same thing. Getting off the…

The largest and worst sovereign debt crisis, ever, is rapidly approaching. Greece is now at its tipping point. As I pen this issue, the government of Greece is desperately trying to stave off default on a 750 million euro repayment ($835.7 million) to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Whether Greece gets concessions or not, won’t matter. Because come June, Greece…

Some analysts seem to think there’s an inflation scare in the air. Their thinking is that Europe’s economy is looking a tad better while the U.S. economy is looking a tad weaker. Therefore, they claim, the dollar is going to fall while the euro rallies, hence, inflation is coming back to the U.S. But the fact of the matter is…

I’ve been receiving so many email questions of late, about almost every market, that I decided to devote this week’s column to answering the most important ones. So here we go. Do note that the questions have been edited for clarity and brevity … Q: Rumors abound that the Chinese yuan will soon be given reserve status by the World…

Last week, I told you that I couldn’t even count the number of analysts who mistakenly believe Europe’s financial crisis is over. Today, I’m going to tell you about those who are wrong about Asia. I can’t even count the number of analysts who still predict doomsday for China. Or, in fact, for all of Asia — based on some…

I can’t even count the number of analysts who believe Europe’s financial crisis is over. They claim that the massive 25 percent-plus decline in the euro is starting to stoke inflation … that economic indicators are starting to turn positive … that the recent record highs in Germany’s DAX are proof positive the crisis is over … and more. But…

My answer: Absolutely not! No way has gold bottomed. Yes, it’s trying to rally again. But the bounce came as no surprise to me, or to my premium members, who, just last week, I warned another bounce was coming. But that’s all it is, the recent action is nothing but a bounce. Gold hasn’t even been able to get back…

I’ve often been criticized over the past year for not being short-term bullish the stock market when I’m so bullish long-term, expecting Dow 31,000 in the years ahead. The reason that I am not bullish short- and intermediate-term though is simple: Markets never go straight up. Indeed, to make big moves up, a market must first make a big move…

I am continually amazed at how many investors and analysts hang their investments and/or trade decisions on what the Fed does or doesn’t do, says or doesn’t say. As if the Fed controls the markets! Or any central bank, or combination of central banks for that matter! Simply put, central banks have no impact on an economy or on market…

I’m now in the 1,300-year-old Tibetan Town, in Dukezong in Yunnan province, southwest China. A mix of mostly Tibetan Buddhists and Muslims, the area, with its dramatic scenery inspired the fictional paradise of Shangri-La described in the 1933 novel “Lost Horizon” by British author James Hilton. To say the surroundings of mountains, streams, sheep, yack, Tibetan Monks and Imams is…

All I can say is WOW! China is on the move again, big time, with the new Silk Road already ramping up, part of an infrastructure investment that will total $1 TRILLION when all is said and done. It’s all part of Beijing’s commitment to build out Western China, where the bulk of the population lives, including a whopping 30…

I’m writing to you today from the 30th floor of the Hilton Chongqing in Chongqing, China — where I just arrived to kick off a two-week tour of China’s Silk Road 2.0 — the 21st century version of the ancient, 2000 year old Silk Road trading route that connected China to Europe and beyond. You probably never hear of Chongqing.…
