The Danger

Bob Rinear, July 11 2018

I feel horrible that I’m saying this stuff in my own country. I think you should be able to wear or support just about anyone or anything (that’s legal) that you like.

The Global Economy is Between a Rock and a Hard Place

James Corbett, July 7 2018

The Gold Slam

Bob Rinear, June 20 2018

Each day that goes by brings us one day closer to the “end game.” One would have to be genuinely silly to try and put a date on that event, but you all know it’s coming. The US dollar’s days as the world reserve is going to come to an end.

Metals?

Bob Rinear, May 2 2018

Rates are rising. We just hit 3% on the ten years. If rates bust through that and get out of hand, servicing the debt loads at the corporate level is going to get ugly. There’s more than a good reason to think that the stock market could truly roll over.
