Trump Will Debase The U.S. Dollar

Mr. Trump has said that the U.S. Dollar is too high, he is going to destroy and debase the U.S. Dollar.

Stock Market, U.S. Economy & Trump

He promised that he was going to get American companies to get all the money that they have deposited off-shore with tax incentives but so far any of that has happened and that is one of the things that made the stock market go up. So far, none of that has happened and the economy continues to get worse. (SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), Russell 2000 Index ETF (IWM)

The Economy Does Not Seem To Be Booming. Why Are Stock Doing So Well?

The U.S. stock market is hitting all-time highs, which is a bit peculiar given the state of the world and the state of the economy. The economy does not seem to be booming, it's all based on expectations.

Russia Is Still Very, Very Cheap

At the moment you should buy Russia and not buy China. I still own China, I am still bullish but if you are looking for something to buy, Russia is still very cheap. Russia is one of the most hated markets in the world, it is very, very hated as you know.

Trump: I'm a Little Bit Confused

I am a little bit confused. Maybe Mr. Trump is confused too. He has promised dozens of times that he would start a trade war with China, in this first day in office he would impose a 45% tariff, he would start a trade war with Mexico and Japan and none of that has happened, so I am not quite sure of what has happened to Mr. Trump. Maybe he is just a politician like the rest of them.

India: It Has Been A Disappointment

Mr. Modi has been a disappointment. I bought Indian shares when it looked like he was going to win but I sold them. He has not done anything. And that demonetization thing, I mean, that was just theft. (WisdomTree India Earnings Fund ETF (EPI), iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index ETF (EEM))

The U.S. Dollar Will Go Higher

I own a lot of U.S. Dollars because turmoil is coming and the Dollar will go higher, it will get overpriced and may even turn into a bubble.

Mine Nationalization: Is It a Serious Risk?

I do not think there is much risk of mine nationalization. There may be in some countries where there is internal political problems. I am just racing around the world in my brain trying to think where somebody may nationalize mines and I do not see that happening. I do not see that as a very serious risk.
