Stock Market: Trade Wars Are Bad

Many people that are investing in the stock market know the trade wars are bad, they know that tariffs are very bad for the economy. Nobody wins trade wars, nobody ever has. Everybody suffers and when this happens and Mr. Trump starts talking the market goes down because investors know Trump doesn't understand, he's got a couple of advisers who don't understand. Trump thinks he's smarter than the history.

Stocks: The Market Always Fluctuates

One of the things I've learned is the market always fluctuates, it's always going to do that. For a while  we've been having fluctuations because of the trade war. I hope that's going to calm down soon, market will have a rally and you should be worried about next year and the year after.

Gold: The Correction Is Not Over

In my view, and I have a little bit of experience, when there`s a lot of bad news and something like gold does not go up, it means its not going to go up. The correction is not over for gold.

I Don't Think This Is The Beginning of World War 3

I don't think this is the beginning of World War 3 (WW3) but be worried because certainly in the next couple of years Mr. Trump could do something. I'm worried anyway, I'm watching closely.

Gold: I Expect It To Go Under a Thousand

I'm the world's worst market timer, I'm a horrible short-term trader but I expect gold to go under a thousand at which point I hope I'm smart enough to buy a lot of gold.

Currencies: I Don't Want To Own The Euro Currency

You're gonna see a lot of strange gyrations but I own the Renminbi. I don't want to own the Euro currency I don't want the British Pound I don't even want to own the Swiss Franc. You know most currencies are very seriously flawed compared to the Renminbi which also has flaws but in the meantime I own it now.

Stocks: Bear Market Later This Year

We'll have a rally and it could be a big rally but then that will be the last rally and then we start going into the bear market later this year or next year. It's been ten years or nine years depending on how you count since our last bear market and that's an unusually long period of time.

Gold Will Trade Below 1,000

I expect gold to go under a thousand at which point I hope I'm smart enough to buy a lot of gold. Before this is over gold is gonna go up a huge amount and whenever people lose confidence in governments or currencies they always have bought gold and silver.

Nobody Has Ever Won a Trade War

Nobody has ever won a trade war. It's not good for anybody. Everybody who's tried it in the past has learned, let's stop this as soon as we can. But unfortunately Mr. Trump doesn't know history and the people around him are very keen on trade wars.

Currencies: The Yuan Is My Second Largest Holding

I own some Renminbi. It's probably my second largest holding of currency, I mean, it's minuscule compared to my US dollar holdings but I'm already there. Everything may go down against the US dollar when the turmoil comes and the US dollar goes up a lot. Everything will go down against it I suspect that the Renminbi will go down less than anything else.

US Dollar: China & Russia Are Working On A Competing Currency

China and other countries are little tired of being bossed around because of the US dollar so they're looking to develop competing currencies. Russia, China  and other countries as well. 

So it is a process, this usually takes a while. It took many years for the US Dollar to replace the British Pound. But it is now underway, it won't happen this year, it won't happen next year but it's the beginning of another blow for the US dollar.

Trade War: China Will Strike Back

You think the Chinese are sitting idly by, China is a major buyer of US agricultural products, and it is obvious that they will aim for this sector as the most painful for Mr. Trump.

Bear Market, Trade War

The next bear market in stocks will be the worst in my life, and this is only because of debt. But in the event of a trade war, the situation will be worse than a disaster!
