When I was a financial advisor, clients always asked me two very uncomfortable questions: “What are you invested in?” and “Where can I put my money to make millions of dollars investing $10,000 or less?”

What made these two questions most uncomfortable: I was not allowed to answer them. The firms' policies where I worked and the regulatory rules prohibited me from directly (or indirectly) recommending speculative investments.

The good news is that after almost 20 years of experience, I am no longer a practicing financial advisor.

I can now share my…

The media and the US government think we are all stupid. Unfortunately, most people are too busy with everyday life and just trying to survive: the government and the media count on this.

Their mantra is “keep the masses busy and keep them distracted, so no one figures out the truth.” Ask Marie Antoinette how that worked out for her?

When the peasants have no food, they tend to roll the heads of the state.

To give you a true measure of the economic crisis the US is hurriedly…

The US and global economies are on the brink of collapse; this is the best answer to the question, “Why buy gold?”

Mob mentality would be humorous if it weren’t so dangerous. Everyone wants to buy when something is going up, yet everyone wants to sell when the same thing is going down.

We are emotional creatures; consequently, human nature is to do the wrong thing at the wrong time.

When the stock market crashes, everyone wants to sell, yet when the stock market goes up, everyone wants to buy.

To determine the best action to take for any given…

Investing in gold for return on investment in 2021 has been the theme of many of my recent posts.

From my years of experience with the financial markets advising clients and financial advisors where to invest their money, I have never seen a more precise signal than I do right now to invest in gold.

For a more in-depth analysis of my thoughts on investing in gold and the potential return on investment, please see the following articles (in chronological order):

Gold has been a hot topic lately. For example, just yesterday, Goldman Sachs increased their future gold price forecast. Similarly, Warren Buffet’s recent significant gold investment made headlines all over the world.

Weeks before those announcements, I also told investors to buy gold (Money: Investing During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Money: Investing in Gold, Investing: Return For Investment, and Money: Investing in Gold for a Huge Return on Investment in 2021).

Both Goldman Sachs and Warren Buffet just reconfirmed that right now is the time to invest in gold.

Subsequently, investors continue to ask me how to buy gold, how to…


Public service message highlighting a life-threatening vehicle recall

Vehicle recalls are announced so frequently they are often ignored. I know, because I was shocked to learn about a serious recall that I also dismissed as “just another recall.”

Recently I stumbled across an appalling video on YouTube from 60 Minutes Australia that sickened me to my core. Roughly 100 million people are driving around with a ticking time bomb in their cars and, like me, they may be completely unaware.

Everyone should see this video below and check to see if their car’s airbag is one of those affected by this important vehicle recall:

Investment return is always top of mind for investors. Currently, the average US bank savings account is paying just 0.06% and bank CD rates are at historic lows. As such, most people are losing money when compared to inflation.

Investors always ask, “Where can I put my money for a double-digit return for investment?” In normal circumstances, the answer is investing in the US stock market.

Most of the time, keeping money invested in the US stock market for over ten years should yield that desired return for investment (on average), but these are not normal times.

With over eighteen…


3 reasons why gold is going higher

Gold has quietly been hitting historic highs. Yet, the majority of investors seem to be missing any indication something is wrong with the economy. Furthermore, investing in stocks has continued to buoy the stock market.

As I recently wrote, “I have never been more concerned about the fundamentals of the US and global economies than I am right now.”

With over eighteen years’ experience as both a financial advisor and manager supervising the investment of billions of dollars in client assets, I have learned to keep a constant eye on the spot price of gold.

When gold increases significantly, investors…


A warning for every investor and the actions you should take right now

Through my financial services career spanning almost two decades, I was once responsible for supervising an entire company of financial advisors who invested billions of dollars for clients.

As such, I have never been more concerned about the fundamentals of the US and global economies than I am right now.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused a global recession and struck particularly hard here in the USA. Yet, currently, the US stock market has almost completely recovered from its coronavirus-induced plunge.

What does this mean for you and your money?

This is a good time to reevaluate your investment holdings and…
