Andrew Z believes that the economy, especially the job market, is looking highly favorable. As a result, wage inflation is happening and therefore the Fed is more likely to raise rates than to leave them unchanged. Spending is going up and so are real wages for the first time in decades. Therefore, the market was overtaken by fears of higher rates and less spending. However, these fears might have been overblown. In any event, it's not over yet. Volatility is the byword.

This wasn’t supposed to happen. As this article is written, Bitcoin is trading around $8300. It’s up from breaking the $6000 barrier, but this could well be a dead cat bounce. That’s down from nearly $20,000 in mid December. After all, everyone knows that Bitcoin only goes up. Just like the stock market and housing prices. What gives? What’s happened in cryptocurrencies was completely predictable. In fact, I wrote an article about this very scenario back on December 25, 2017.

Of course no one listened, because when you’re under the influence of dopamine (a powerful neurotransmitter) you’re unable to listen to reason and act accordingly. Effortlessly making money in a bubble is quite gratifying and euphoria inducing. No one wants to come down from the high, you want it to keep going forever. But nothing lasts forever, especially financial driven manias. Just ask the tulip farmers in Holland.

What's up with Memo-gate, Q Anon and the coming storm surge in Washington DC. One thing is for certain, things will never be the same in our nation's capitol.

There were many weather related stories in 2016 and tragedies they controlled our newsfeed. What were the most severe of the year?

A survey shows millennials are missing out on practical skills such as map reading or fishing, compared to other generations. When asked to perform some simple tasks such as forming a single knot or swimming a short distance, more than half were unable to accommodate.

Researchers also found that most people under the age of 44 prefer to use Google Maps and Satellite Navigation to get around, but half of over-55s stick to a paper street map. On top of that, just a third of the 2,000 surveyed knew how to spark a flame by natural means. How will these people ever be ready for survival?

Disaster Preparation Authority and Author Anthony Kovic is properly versed in the area of preparation and uses the info in his books to help people cope with the fear of impending severe weather.

Anthony Kovic can discuss this by answering the following:
* Why are millennials so out of touch?
* Why is the weather becoming more severe and what can be done to prepare for it?
* What are some of the impacts of severe winter weather?
* What the steps to take to be ready for an Emergency?
* How long should your survival kit be built to last?
* Why is it important to be ready for an unexpected disaster?

The market finally had a pullback. Was it just a 3 day event or is this just the beginning? Paper profits aren't real money until you sell or liquidate. It's always better to sell before the crash, but why are so few unable to execute? It's all tied into the human psyche. Dopamine is so good, we want the good times to keep rolling along. But they don't and you need to be prepared. Otherwise, you'll be left taking out usurious payday loans and that's a losing strategy.

What a great combination, Amazon, JP Morgan-Chase and Berkshire Hathaway are teaming up to provide healthcare. In big business we trust, or do we? Dr. George believes that nothing good can come of such a combination. They will further shift the system away from the patient and towards the payers. Imagine Amazon telling you where to buy drugs or Berkshire tells you what doctor you can see. While this is taking place, the free market is giving patients greater choices than ever. Find out how you can opt out of the system. Dr. George makes it easy.

Legendary investor Frank Holmes returned to discuss the latest developments at his cryptocurrency miner Hive Blockchain Technologies. Our sponsor, Hive raised over $200 million last quarter and is poised to attain profitability in the very near future. The recent cryptocurrency decline hasn't had much affect on the company. They were profitably mining Ethereum when it was $300 and it's close to $900 now. And come September, they'll be mining Bitcoin too. Everything is looking up for this crypto miner.

In just a few short months we've gone from a stock market that was almost completely devoid of fear to one that is driven by it. Just look at the volatility index, it went from 11 in December to over 50 last week. It's settled down quite a bit, but it's still around 27. If John is right, this trend will continue into the future and could mean big gains and losses too.

Staggered by Donald Trump’s unthinkable victory in the presidential election, Democrats have continued to be pummeled by the Trump’s tax reform, the supercharged economy, his withering tweet-scorn for them and their media flunkies, their own failed government shut-down, and a rousing State of the Union address that raised his poll numbers and made the Democrat Congressmen in the audience look like pouting prom wallflowers. And now comes the “Memo,” the House Intelligence Committee’s exposure of the slow-motion coup engineered by partisan FBI and DOJ functionaries, and other deep-state members of the “resistance.” Now it’s up to “We the People” to demand accountability from these abusers of the public trust and violators of the Constitution.

The Deep State of the Union Address really showed a totally defeated and humiliated Democratic Party. They sat there stone faced and petulant. The Democratic Party is dead. Perhaps a new party will arise from its ashes.

The Bitcoin bust should come as no surprise to any listeners and readers of FSN. However, what may come as a surprise is that it's not over yet. We're going to see repeated bubbles in the Cryptocurrency space. That's just the nature of the market. Perhaps we really do need a gold-back, gold-convertible Crypto. That could have a market stabilizing effect  and make the Gold Crypto the reserve crypto currency.

Car scams are all the rage these days. Scammers get you to wire money for a car that they've advertised. They get your money and you never get the car. It all seems so real and that's why we get so easily fooled. Another major scam is that fraudsters send you a link to report a fraud to the FBI. But it's not the FBI you're sending all your personal info to, and they quickly drain your bank accounts and run up your credit cards. The scams keep on coming!

Some of Jason's observations about the economy and investing. 

Dow falls 300 points as slump extends into second day
The Dow dropped more than 300 points Tuesday.

Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon's plan to get into the health insurance business sent health care companies tumbling. UnitedHealth (UNH) fell 3%, CVS(CVS) was off 5%, and Walgreens (WBA) shed 3%.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that Apple will make 20 million fewer iPhone X's this coming quarter than it had originally planned. The iPhone X, Apple's newest and most expensive phone, hit stores in November. Apple will give investors an update on sales Thursday during its year-end earnings report.

Apple (AAPL) sank 1% early Tuesday.

The market selloff so far is just minor turbulence in a relentless climb. The Dow closed down 177 points Monday, its worst day since September.

If the Dow closes down by more than 100 points Tuesday, it will be the first time since April 19 and only the third time since the November 2016 election that the Dow has fallen triple digits two sessions in a row.

"With higher interest rates globally and the State Of The Union speech on tap tonight, this could simply be some end of month jockeying," said Ryan Detrick, senior market strategist with LPL Research.

The Dow is up 8,000 points since President Trump's election. A growing global economy, strong corporate earnings and a wave of consumer confidence are pushing stocks higher. Congress' tax cuts and Trump's deregulation agenda have investors and CEOs feeling optimistic.

Gerard Lameiro joined us today for an interesting discussion about the scandals surrounding President Trump. They're not Trump's scandals but those conducted by the Deep State to keep him from the presidency, both during the election and after. There's something very rotten in DC (District of Criminals) and for whatever reason, they despise the President. It's all coming out soon. Will Trey Gowdy be appointed Deputy Attorney General or Clinton Special Prosecutor?

Jeffrey Christian joined us today. We discussed the stock market, precious metals and Bitcoin. Jeff believes that Bitcoin is relatively unimportant at this point. Because it's so small in terms of investors and dollars, central banks are willing to let the market do its thing and sort out the cryptocurrency space, at least for now. He believes that recent stock market decline is temporary, but further down the road there's going to be a major decline. As always, he endorses gold as the ultimate insurance policy and believes everyone should have some. And he's bullish about its investment potential going out a number of years. He says the people buying today are not the fear motivated buyers of yesteryear, but rather they perceive it to be an undervalued asset and are seeking capital appreciation. That's a big change in the market and will have major future consequences.

Over the last few weeks there has been more than enough bad news (Korea, Bitfinex, Tether, India, etc.) to point the finger at why we've seen such a big sell-off. From a technical trading standpoint, you can also point to the charts. In a little over a month, from November 11th to December 17th, Bitcoin was up 260%...this is a big move. As of today, we've retraced (or given back) nearly 75% of that move just described. Jared is currently looking at the next support level coming in at around 8588 and some change. With the SEC and CFTC chiefs set to meet with the Senate next week (on February 6th), and doesn't expect to see much of any bullish activity until the uncertainty of that hearing has passed.

Jeff Berwick has been a friend of the show almost from its beginning. He's had a number of impressive calls recently. He was urging readers of Dollar Vigilante to take some crypto-profits months ago, as were we. The Bitcoin crash, much like its rise, has been orchestrated. Jeff believes that all crashes are deliberately planned and executed. Which is why we need to defeat the central banks. At the present time crypto currencies are our best hope. But be prepared! It's a war. And join Jeff's Anarchapulco conference via livestream.

It happened. Bitcoin, which only ever goes up, is near $7000, down over 60% from its high of nearly $20,000. If you've been listening to this show, there should be no surprise. It was inevitable. The DJIA lost 666 last Friday. Another inevitability, but predictions of this bull market's death have been greatly exaggerated, for now.

Mark believes that fundamentals do not justify the massive gains in US stocks in recent years (rise of over 300% in the S&P 500 since 2009).

Does the U.S. have a perfect 'Goldilocks economy' or a vulnerable 'Food stamp economy'? Are we in a ultra low interest rate, liquidity driven "everything bubble"? Is margin debt one of the factors driving speculation in stocks and a stock market bubble?

Is there 'irrational exuberance' and overly bullish sentiment as seen in the recent headline 'Stock market never goes down anymore'?
Very important to keep up ongoing education in world of fake news bombardment.  Also important to own hard assets including physical gold and cold hard cash outside our digital financial and banking system.

There are times in life that are extremely difficult and one often doesn't know where to turn for help. Dr. John Huber is writing a book to help those people out. It's easy to lose site of what's happening and you wind up forgetting that there's an industry of people dedicating to helping you get your life back on track. Look to friends for referrals, check websites for reviews and consult your health insurance company's directory of service providers. Then see if the person you wind up choosing is the right one. If not, repeat the process and life will get better.

Wayne Allyn Root joined us for an interesting discussion of the President's first State of the Union Address. He believes that the Dems have totally lost it. What they have is Trump Derangement Syndrome on steroids. They are no longer able to look objectively at anything. The country is doing better and yet they're livid. Who's side are they on anyway? They're fighting the battle after they've lost the war. They're similar to those Japanese soldiers who were abandoned on small islands, only to find out 20 years later that the war was over. What will it take to make the Democratic Party great again?

David Erfle is following his dream by publishing JuniorMinerJunky.com. He didn't start out being a mining stock analyst, rather it was something he fell into. Last year he was up 145%. He believes that this year is going to be even better. The metals markets are looking up and so are interest rates and business lending. Historically, these have been good indicators for the future price of gold. Regardless, David will still be working away looking for those undervalued gems that are ready to take off.

Barring a Black Swan event Angela Sloan wouldn't be surprised if the Dow doesn't hit 30,000 this year. She doesn't believe that the tax plan is "baked in" yet and a lot of investors with money on the sidelines are starting to jump in. Americans overall are very optimistic and and that the emotion will keep the market pumping as well as the economic numbers. A "correction" would give us all an even better buying opportunity.

A Black Swan event such as North Korea hitting a "target" with a missile or the powder keg in the middle east blowing a fuse could cause some volatility depending on how President Trump handles the situation. If he "pushes back" to win it will have little impact, but if the President hesitates you will see volatility. President Trump isn't  the type to "hesitate." He will push back to WIN!

If O'Bamacare is "fixed", the Wall is built and Trump can carry out his other goals this market will continue to soar. Angela is EXCITED!!

Max Porterfield is CEO President and Director of show sponsor Callinex Mines (CNX-TSX.V). He's got over ten years of experience in natural resources and financial markets. From what we're seeing, higher prices, higher interest rates, signs are pointing to a major bull market in commodities. The price of Zinc has nearly double to $1.60 per pound, which is great news for Callinex. Add to that the increasing resource estimates of their Nash Creek Project and things are really looking up. Max believes that when we look back at this period in time, it will prove to have been a major investor opportunity.
