If you’re like us you’ve been sitting around with nothing else to do other than to contemplate the global economic disaster that we’re currently enduring. Is it a deep state plot, an act of utter incompetence by our leaders or just a bunch of well intentioned pointy headed bureaucrats in over their heads? It really doesn’t matter which. This disaster has been completely mishandled from the get-go. So says noted retired critical care physician, Dr. Ted Noel, the time for quarantines was when the Coronavirus was first discovered by China. According to study, the disease could have been halted in its tracks if China had done the right, which of course they didn’t. It was a simple matter of quarantining Wuhan and the surrounding areas. Once 10’s of thousands of Chinesetravelers were allowed to leave Wuhan, the entire world became infected. The virus was out in the wild, as Dr. Noel observed. 

At that point the best thing for governments and health specialists to do, was to reverse quaranntine those in the vulnerable segment. Theh infection rate had already gone full hockey stick and there was no way to stop it. The good news, however, is that the virus is extremely suceptible to heat and humidity as numerous studies have shown. This will result in a dramatic cessation come spring and summer. 

Most people are actually immune to the virus, as high as 80 percent, as we discovered from the infection rates experienced on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. Tee actual death rate was 1 percent, likely increased by ineffective medical treatment on the ship. 

The problem in Italy and NYC is that their medical systems were socialized and therefore and inadequate to the task. An administrator gets to play G-d. His decision determines who will live and who will die.

Dr. Rana Al-Falaki --- Women’s Empowerment Expert, says that, 
"The nation’s newest New Normal is still taking shape, but the confusion and uncertainty over what lies ahead in efforts to contain the Coronavirus is escalating anxiety levels in ways that are unprecedented."

To help combat anxiety and depression around the crisis, self-care is going to be critical. This includes deep breathing, healthy eating and exercise, and most importantly – a POSTIVE MINDSET. However, none of this will be easy during a pandemic.

Amazing how there’s no data on how many people actually recover. The flu kills far more people than the Coronavirus. We’re getting information from the media that supports a narrative. There is a bright spot. The quinine based drugs appear to be effective. Why is the NHI holding back. They already have a 2005 study that shows these drugs effective against Coronaviruses. Government has been completely ineffective in its response. We need to get off our partisan stool. Government is not working for the people.

If you haven’t noticed, the world is a complete mess. $5 trillion in stimulus is coming down the pike. The so-called experts have led us down the path of ruin. It’s up to the individual to steer clear and survive. In the past 20 years, this is the third massive liquidity event. The fire sales are about to begin. Stock market losses shouldn’t effect your burial plans. More saving and less spending is the key. Perhaps we’ll see a change for the better in business and in society.

The coronavirus continues to spread. It has hit U-S bases worldwide and, in some cases, has diminished America's capacity to defend our interests around the globe. But how bad is it?

"Whenever an outside entity invades a military operation - or changes what it is we need to do - there is reason for concern," says long time Intelligence, Counter Terrorism Expert and former Green Beret Brian Boyd (see short bio below). www.boydintelligence.com

Another major concern is that the military may not have an adequate supply of coronavirus testing kits at installations overseas, especially in the U.S. Central Command area of operations. In fact, several U.S. military exercises have been canceled or significantly scaled back to prevent the spread of the virus.

So what happens next and are our interests in danger?

Print, print, print and print still more. Italy, Germany, France and Spain are all throwing money at the problem. The aftermath is going to be that economies will be failing all over the place. The credit cycle was turning down when the pandemic hit. And now the solution to create new money and credit. We were just about to fall off the cliff and along came the Coronavirus. Businesses no longer have clients willing to buy their produce unless they’re supplying essentials. The dollar is central to the entire system. Within a month there will be a banking crisis in Europe. That will be remedied by money printing. 

In the US the supply chain has been interupted. Payments are not flowing. This has a cascading effect. It’s enormous, it’s bigger than GDP. This is having a major negative impact upon total production and this will result in bankruptcies. Banks will reduce their lending to lower risk. The money coming from the Fed must help the payment streams and solve the credit contraction problem. There will come a point when it becomes practical for a country to back its currency with gold. It must have a credible currency and must get it’s financial house in order. You cannot have a gold standard and be running a deficit. It cannot be done.

It was always going to happen, the catalyst was the shock. Who would have thought a pandemic would trigger the global financial collapse. Early Monday morning the Fed announced the largest QE program in history. It’s unlimited, literally infinite. Free money is on it’s way. Helicopter money is on its way. Free money is coming to you soon. There’s time to wait to get it right. The people in charge are the Herbert Hoovers of our day. They have unlimited funny money to play around with. Just hit a key and the money shows up. The money itself is meaningless. There’s a point at which the money being dumped into the economy will affect the value of the currency. We’re getting there. 

If you’ve raised a lot of cash and it’s just sitting there, you’ve got to be thinking about inflation. Some of that cash is going to flow into precious metals. People sold everything to get their hands on cash and now some of that cash is flowing back into gold and silver.

Comrade DiBlasio is a complete imbecile. He refused to close the schools and refused to order additional supplies. He wanted to imprison people in their own homes. At the same time he wants to release prisoners from jail. He’s more concerned about the criminals than the honest citizens. During the 1980’s when the Soviet Union was stationing war materials, Comrade D was all in favor. The teachers were munitying against him and then he finally had to close the schools. And it’s all Trump’s fault. The politics are completely out of hand. An emergency such as the one we are facing should bring people together and politics shouldn’t get in the way.

As usual, the American Taxpayer is getting the short end of the bail-out stick. The taxpayer won’t be paying the tab for the latest round of corporate welfare transfer payments. Since we’re already running trillion-plus deficits, the currency holders, savers and bond holders who will pick up the eventual tab, after seeing their asset ravaged by inflation and all of society. And for what? Flashback to 2008, when the nation’s banks and investment houses were caught flat-footed by the mortgage meltdown, a crisis of their own making. They were given trillions in cash with virtually no strings attached. Large portions of the bailout went towards bonuses for these unworthy titans of finance.

Scott’s radio show is Financial Insanity and that is exactly what’s happening now. The Market’s collapse has taken us back to May 2017. This is how today’s financial advisor sends your money to a mousetrap. From 1899 to 1921 the market went nowhere. When the PE shows 30, it’s time to head for the exits. This is the time to do something. From the year 2000 to now the stock market is only up 96%. Insurance would have done much better. It's never too late to get your financial house in order.

Chris says money is moving just like it has in the past 5 panics. This is normal technical behavior in this type of market. There will be a huge move when money comes back into the stock market within several weeks. This will mark the first bounce in the bear market. All the countries of the world are pumping and dumping money into their economies. Eventually the music will come to an end. Dumping trillions may work out well but maybe not. Whatever happens, it’s going to be a major plus for precious metals and mining stocks.

Heye Daun, CEO of Osino Resources, is very confident that he's found another major gold deposit. He's already founded and sold off two companies and it looks like he's well on his way to a third. This project is on the same belt as the last company, so Heye is feels good that he will achieve similar results. 7 of the first 8 holes came up positive. It's a huge district scale project that could be something very special. Heye believes that it will eventually become a producing gold mine. Best of all, after the recent over-subscribed financing, Osino is fully funded for 2020 and the better part of 2021. So now Heye can do what he does best, drill and find massive deposits of gold. And Namibia, while located in Africa, is extremely stable and mining friendly. All the pieces are in place for an incredible success.

The Wuhan Coronavirus should be over between April 15 to May 15 of this year, according to Dr. Gerard Lameiro. In the end it won’t have any affect on the outcome of the election, President Trump will be re-elected. And further to that point, neither Joe Biden nor Bernie Sanders will be the candidate. Dr. Lameiro predicts that Trump will get 42% of the Black vote and therefore Michelle Obama will be the nominee. We’ll agree to disagree on this one. I believe PA Governor Tom Wolfe or MN Governor Tim Waltz. Let’s see what happens next.

The outbreak of the Wuhan Coronavirus has led us to a complete panic. Everyone is thinking of social distancing and there is a point to it. But scientists have been disagreeing about how long the virus will last on a surface and other vital info about it. We need to be washing our hands regularly to sleep well, exercise and eat well.

The current situation is similar to the height of Yellow Journalism, which brought on the Spanish American War. Less than 8,000 people worldwide who have died and of course those the numbers will go up. Only 200k people worldwide have the actual virus. Over 600k die annually from the flu, 500k in the US from smoking every year. And we’re shutting down the world. The economic damage will be profound. The bulk of the economy is small business and they’re not getting any bailout. Many of them will be pushed over the edge. Flu season takes place during cold weather, not warm. There’s empty hospital beds now in China and South Korea. The real question is will it reoccur next winter. 

What about the damage to the stock market? Martin’s model shows the decline starting in January 2020. This crash will be a combination of 2008 nad 1998. This is what a liquidity crisis looks like. Same with the repo crisis, banks won’t lend to other banks. Europe is refusing to do any bailouts. This isn’t QE, it’s providing liquidity to a market that no one else will lend to. 

Eventually the market will bounce. It will go to new highs in the years ahead. This is a lack of confidence in government. The worst thing the Fed could have done was cut rates to zero. It was all out of ammo and the markets called its bluff. The resulting decline undermined confidence the Fed and all of government. Similar to what caused the gold advance of the 1980’s. What's next, will we start tipping waiters in toilet paper? 

This will eventually lead to a major advance in gold, not yet but it’s lurking out there. Negative interest rates won’t work. Look at Europe. They have to kill the market to save it. 

Martin talks about his meeting with Trump at Mar a Lago. He commends Trump for having the ability to change his mind and change course. Trump still doesn’t know whom he will actually run against. We’re far better off with Trump than anyone else. We’re currently heading into a major monetary crisis. They never let a good crisis go to waste. 

They’re pushing very hard to eliminate currency under the guise of preventing the Coronavirus and other diseases. The difference between the US and Europe, US currency issued since the founding is still legal tender. Europe cancels it’s currency at whim. They claim that this will end bank runs and eliminate cash hoarding, or so the thinking goes. Trump won’t go for it. What comes after Trump, who knows? 

Stock Market will be in the doldrums for a while to come. We might go down the 1st week of April with a test of the 19,000 level. Big risk is going into the end of the quarter. There will be continued liquidation. Cash is king, regardless what Bridgewater has to say about it. The business cycle always wins. Eventually people will see that government doesn’t have the power to be Santa Claus to everyone. After the 1st week of April, things should calm down. Martin believes that the press should be investigated. A repeat of Hurst and Pulitzer in the early 1900's.  

We’re heading back over 30,000 and the long term hasn’t changed. A test of 40,000 is likely by 2024 and by the time we end the cycle in 2032 the Dow could be 65,000. But what of the US Dollar

Noted economic historian Bob Hoye joined us for a recap of the latest meltdown. As the saying goes, "There's nothing new under the sun." Bob has studied every credit bust in known history. There's a lot to be learned from the past. For instance, during a credit bust, the reserve currency experiences an increase in its purchasing power. And, gold mining stocks do extremely well because energy and other costs head south. Base metal mines do poorly, leading to a decrease in byproduct production of precious metals. Bob is extremely bullish on precious metals, once the current lows are retested but fail to go lower. Interesting times.

Author, Advisor, Investing Guru Jerremy A. Newsome is on a mission to enrich lives with mentally liberating education. Since the age of seven, he has been fascinated with investing and growth and even convinced his father to match his investment deposit for some Apple stock back in 1995, which would be worth $14,000,000.

His passion for helping others enrich their lives through investing led him to found Real Life Trading in 2014. This starting point has allowed him to assist and enrich tens of thousands of lives while also growing the company organically to a seven figure business.

In November 2014, Jerremy Alexander Newsome launched Real Life Trading, a company designed to make trading accessible to everyone. This starting point has allowed him to assist and enrich tens of thousands of lives while also growing the company organically to a seven figure business.

Jerremy started his love for business and growth at the age of seven, after watching the movie Forrest Gump with his family. Do you remember the scene, where Forrest said, “Lt Dan invested in some fruit company and now we don’t have to worry about money any more.”? Growing up dirt poor, the thought of never having to worry about money seemed appealing. He asked his father to explain investing and his father taught him about Apple Computers. He begged him to invest. Finally, his father agreedto match his deposit, dollar for dollar. He saved $1,500 picking blackberries and selling them door to door. They bought $3,000 worth of AAPL shares back in1995. To date, they would be worth $14,000,000.

During the past week of market volatility and great declines he was up nearly 6 figures. How'd he do it? Listen and find out.

While the markets continue to slide and gold/silver have been especially hard hit, we may be close to a bottom, at least that's Nick Santiago's take. John and I have been talking about this eventuality for years now. I was almost ready to change the name of my website and podcast, for fear of becoming less relevant. But all that's changed. Preventive prepping can save you great angst if done properly. One thing is certain, if you wait until the crisis begins, it's already too late. Just try to buy some toilet paper now. There's reason for hope and optimism, even at this low point. The human race is first and foremost a learning organism. Each crisis provides an invaluable lesson and helps assure our continued survival. And that's what's most important in the end.

While silver may be down, it's not out. Things are happening at Greg Crowe's Silver One. At the Candelaria Project recent drill results were quite encouraging, with one hole returning 1129 over 8m true width, within a 27.62 meter interval that averaged 350 gm/t silver grams per ton.

As if that wasn't enough, a sample from the Company's recently acquired Phoenix Silver Project yielded a 417-pound native silver vein fragment in which a specific gravity test indicates high-grade silver. No assay was performed since this is an extremely rare museum grade specimen, worthy of preservation in its own right. While this might not be indicative of of the mineralization hosted on the property, but it's an amazing very positive find.

Joe Biden has entered a new phase of his cognitive impairment, it's gone from disorientation, verbal gaffes and speech impairment to uncontrolled anger, bursts of profanity and a general loss of control. The next phase will be uncontrollable anger leading to violent outbursts. Visit any nursing home and you'll find people in a similar state. There's one very close to my home in FL and regularly there's multiple police cars and ambulances called to quell residents' acts of violence. Joe's well on the path and therefore, he's never going to make it to the nominee. His illness is progressive and soon it will be obvious not only to the world, but the Democrat Party as well. 

Coronavirus/Wuhan Virus has apparently run its course in China and it will run it in the US shortly as well. Spring is coming and pretty soon the so-called civilized world will come to this conclusion. The rate of confirmed infections in the US isn't doubling daily. Rather it seems to have topped out at 30 percent per day. And looking at the map, northern states are being affected far more than those in the south. It is becoming more likely by the day that the virus will subside when warm weather moves in. Then we'll see how pointless this entire exercise was. 

Central banks are priming the pump and blasting money out into the world. At some point this is going to lead to a massive rally in stocks and precious metals. So fear not. Maybe not stocks but certainly precious metals are building up for a massive increase. Get ready for more.

Noted conservative commentator and YouTuber joined us for a look at the coming Democrat landslide loss. It appears that Bernie Sanders has lost his fight, if he ever had any in the first place. He refuses to address the Biden Crime Family and their documented acts of corruption. He ignores Joe Biden's obvious cognitive impairment and says it's off limits. Much like he did in 2016, when he refused to address Hillary Clinton's damn email server. That doesn't sound like much of a winner to us.

Biden on the other hand seems ready to fight the world, especially his prospective voters. He is losing it and our guess is he's not going to make it to the convention and in any event is never going to be the Democrat presidential candidate. He would have lost against Sanders, had not the Party Elites forced Buttigeg and Klobuchar to drop out of the race. What were they promised. It seems likely that the elites refused to give Liawatha Warren anything, so she dropped out after Super Tuesday, when it became obvious she couldn't win (which everyone but her already knew). 

Bill and I discussed Joe Biden's rapidly deteriorating mental state, which can no longer be hidden from the public. Bill, unfortunately has personal experience dealing with a close relative in a similar situation. How long will it be before Biden turns violent. This is a clear case of elder abuse and the enablers should all be held accountable. 

We also discussed the Coronavirus and how bad it is and how bad it will be. While there are many opinions to the contrary, it has  already peaked in China and we're seeing slower spread in the Southern States than in the Northern. California which has many cases, is showing far fewer cases in the Southern Cali than Northern. Which may lend credence to the seasonality effect, but it's too early to tell. 

And finally we discussed Trump's character flaws, of which he has many. But he's willing to fight for capitalism and to fight for the preservation and prosperity of Western Civilization, something no president since Reagan attempted. And that's important for the future of America and the world. We've seen China's inhumane response to the Coronavirus and we don't want to see them leading a world where the individual is completely subservient to the totalitarian state.

Nick's been warning about a market plunge for months now. And now here it is. It's been very quick and painful, but great opportunity is ahead. So many people are jumping out of the plane, it's leaving much more room for the remaining passengers. The news is secondary, the market always tells us what the price will be. Nick believes there will be a huge bounce in the markets, probably around or shortly after the election. Gold's case has not changed. Silver, the red-headed step child will follow suit, but later. If it wasn't the Coronavirus, it would have been something else.

Coronavirus fears are clobbering the stock market — is it doing the same to your retirement?

Concerns about the spread of COVID-19 have pushed stocks lower. 

The coronavirus has reached a handful of countries across the globe, including the U.S. — and now, it’s touched retirement plans too. 

Concerns about the spread of the disease and a global financial slowdown are driving deep dips in the stock market. Retirement portfolios are not immune to market volatility, worrying some savers that they may lose valuable assets they’ve been stashing away. 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -2.00%   and the S&P 500 SPX, -1.90%   both dropped more than 6% over Monday and Tuesday, in part due to fear of the coronavirus spreading around the world. The S&P 500 suffered the biggest two-day loss since 2015 this week. Naturally, some retirement portfolio balances are waning as well, requiring advisers and financial firms to talk through these issues with their clients. 

As always, many financial advisers are telling investors to remain calm. Market volatility is normal and expected, especially for long-term goals like retirement.

Investing can be emotional — after all, people are putting their life’s savings in an account to generate enough income for them to live comfortably in their old age when they can no longer work — but financial advisers say that even though the uncertainty can seem frightening, most retirement savers should not act on any market volatility at this time. 

“For people who have a financial plan that tells them how they should be invested, deviating remains the single most destructive action to their wealth,” said Chris Chen, a financial adviser at Insight Financial Strategists in Boston. “For those who have no financial plan, now seems like a good time to get one.” 

Investors may be worried about the impact of the coronavirus on their portfolios, but it’s still too early to say what meaningful effect it will have, said Scott Bishop, partner and executive vice president of financial planning at STA Wealth Management in Houston. The sooner the virus is contained and there’s a sustained recovery, the faster the economy will rally, he said in an email to his clients. The longer the virus is out and affecting other regions as well as travel, the greater the impact on corporate earnings, which is a long-term driver of global stock markets, he said. “In hindsight, we will know for sure, but we have some past experiences that are very similar — and in the past experiences like this, the market has been very resilient,” he said. 

The Dow dropped 800 points, or a 3.05% decrease and the fourth biggest single-day drop in history, on Aug. 14, 2019, but investors’ portfolios were not harmed in the long run, said Andrew Westlin, a financial planner at online advisory firm Betterment. Those who bought shares on Jan. 2, 2019 and held on to them were up 24% at the end of the year (so someone who invested $10,000 at the beginning of last year would have $12,428 at the end of the year). Those who sold out of the market entirely on Aug. 14 lost out on 12% of gains. In the previous scenario, they’d have walked away with $11,061, Westlin calculated. For those who decided to buy back in when the Dow recovered the 800 points (which was two weeks later) would have seen a gain of 19%, compared to the 24% for those who simply stayed invested. 

Similarly to the Aug. 14 drop, the impact of coronavirus fears will likely be short-lived for the stock market, as it has been for other pandemic-level health issues, including HIV/AIDS, SARS, Ebola and Zika, said Melissa Sotudeh, director of advisory services at Halpern Financial in Rockville, Md. China’s economy is larger than it was in 2003 during the SARS outbreak, and is much more integrated into the global supply chain, but there are many reasons to believe the impacts will be temporary, she said. “The coronavirus is not a reason to change your portfolio strategy,” she said. 

Still, some investors may just not feel comfortable with the market fluctuations, at which point now may be an appropriate time to adjust the risk in their portfolio, Westlin said. “The approach we take is looking at how long you have to save for a goal — that’s how we come up with the right level of risk,” he said. “At the end of the day, the investing strategy and risk we choose is a trade off.” The key is to avoid rash decisions sparked by fear of a downturn, he said. 

Market volatility often shows the value of having bonds in a portfolio, Sotudeh said. “The ongoing income from your bond funds helps stabilize your portfolio, and these securities become more attractive to investors when equity markets are unstable, causing their prices to rise,” Sotudeh said. 

There’s one other time when a person may want to consult a financial professional about their portfolios amid market volatility: when they’re nearing retirement. These investors have less time for their portfolios to recover, and if they’re too heavily invested in equities, they could curtail their future assets. Studies have shown some baby boomers are investing much more in risk than they should

That’s why advisers typically suggest investors stay logged out of their retirement accounts, or tune out any sensational talks about a market downturn or steep drops in stock indexes. 

“Timing the market is futile but sticking with your allocation in the up and downs prove to be the best course over the long term,” said Christopher Beste, a financial adviser at RFG Advisory in Vestavia Hills, Ala. “We can’t control the markets but we can control emotions.”
