How To Look For Potential Investments

You look out the window, you look at the market, you read the newspapers, you listen to the investor's podcast, whatever. Wherever you see that people are down on something and it's depressed and there may be an investment opportunity there.

Agricultural America is pretty depressed right now as you probably know and maybe it is an area where there's a opportunity but just because something's depressed that doesn't mean you should be investing there because it can stay depressed for a long, long time. You have to find a change that's taking place and change doesn't happen every day. But if you can find something cheap and if you can find a positive change, maybe you should do more homework and find a potential investment.

Gold Is Not A Currency, Just A Commodity Like Any Other

There is no simple answer in the investment world. It's a combination of everything and that's the case with gold and everything else. Gold has been around for thousands of years, gold has had many periods when it's been in a bull market and many periods when it's been in a bear market. It's just another investment. I know that many people think it is a currency but gold is just another investment like everything else, just another commodity like everything else. Go back in history and you will see that gold is just another investment like everything else whether we like it or not. (SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD), Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX))

Agritrade Resources Is Intriguing

Agritrade Resources is intriguing to me since it is in coal business which most people don’t like and it is in Indonesia, which some people don’t like also. (Jim Rogers has taken an advisory role to the board of Agritrade)

Gold Has Not Had Enough Of A Correction Yet

If gold collapses to $950 an ounce I would rush in and buy a lot of gold. Price is the main determinant. Time also, if this was 2019, I would rush in and buy some gold. Gold has not had enough of a correction yet and there are still too many gold bulls. (SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD))

Stock Market: The Impact of Higher Interest Rates

Higher interest rates are definitely coming from the market  and from the Federal Reserve and what that does to the stock market, we will see.

Traditionally, when the Federal Reserve raises interest rates three times you should become very worried and on the fourth you should not be worried, you should run for the hills.

India: Not One Of My Favorite Stock Markets

India is not one of my favorite stock markets (one of the reasons being) it is at an all-time high. I do not like to buy stocks when markets are at an all-time high as I do not want to get on a moving train because when you do that you will get hurt.

The Party In Stocks Will End Soon

The Indian stock market is not the only one going through the roof, look at European stocks and the US indexes. I think the party in stocks will end soon, but I am very, very bad at timing it.

The Future of Money: Bitcoin, Digital Currencies

Will it be Bitcoin? I don't know. But it's going to be electronic money and over the computer. One of the reasons is because politicians do want to get rid of cash. They don't like us all having cash because if it's cash they don't know what we're doing with it. Maybe your are going to see your girlfriend or maybe we're drinking whiskey or buying marijuana or something they want to know. 

They want to control it so if all our money is electronic the politicians can completely control us and so therefore their favor of getting rid of cash. So it's going to happen. I'm not in favor of it by the way, you know, I want to go have a drink with you, give it to my girlfriend or something else but they don't like that.

Markets: US Dollar, Gold, Silver & Chinese Currency

The US Dollar is going to go higher as the turmoil increases worldwide. As the US Dollar goes higher, gold and silver will probably continue under pressure. At some point the US Dollar will get overvalued may turn into a bubble. I will have to sell my US Dollars and I will put my money into gold and silver or maybe the renminbi the Chinese currency which by then should be convertible.

You Should Be Buying Russia, Not China

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. (Market Vector Russia ETF Trust (RSX), iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index ETF (FXI))

The Future Of Money Will Be Digital

We do have a gigantic money problem in the world, so I suspect that the solution as things get worse will be some sort of electronic or computer money. Now, will it be Bitcoin? I do not know. But it is going to be electronic money and another reason for that is that politicians want to get rid of cash.

Crypto Currencies

They are on my radar but I do not own any digital currencies, I never had, I never quite got it. The world does have currency problems, money problems, and these problems are going to get worse. Everything in the world is being changed by the computer and it will continue to be.
