We talked with the Gold and Oil Guy today, Chris Vermeulen. He says that Gold is still in a bear market, like it has been for the past three years. There's an opportunity to pick up a quick profit when it rebounds from its current plunge, but don't be fooled. It's all setting up very nicely for the ultimate bull market that's getting closer. Same with the much maligned Toronto Venture Exchange (TSX:V), which is at record lows due to its composition of miners and resource companies. Chris believes that when it comes back, it will come back very big, so consider the ETF. Chris is very bearish on Oil and doesn't see it for quite some time, so don't chase it lower. Believe the technicals, not your heart.

John writes, "Global capital is looking for a place to hide. But after decades of enthusiastic currency creation and financial engineering, there’s way too much of it for any one country to accommodate. This mismatch between money knocking at the door and available space is leading the handful of remaining safe havens to put up “no vacancy” signs in order to avoid being swamped. Among the things they’re trying is negative interest rates. That is, if you want to deposit money in a Swiss or Danish bank or lend money to the Japanese or German governments you now have to pay them for the privilege.

This sounds a little crazy, and from a historical perspective it is indeed highly unusual. But it’s exactly what you’d expect in a world of ever-increasing debt and ever-more-exotic financial speculation: Too much bad paper gets created which eventually blows up, causes instability and leads worried investors to value return of capital over return on capital. They all pile into whatever seems most likely to still exist a decade hence, forcing (or enabling) the managers of those assets to charge rather than pay interest."

Dave Barnett has found the key to investing locally and profitably. Find local entrepreneurs who need capital and either don't want to deal with a bank or who are priced out of the small business loan market.

He show;s you how to do it too in his book Invest Local

Our guest and friend Woody O'Brien joined us for a wide ranging discussion about what's happening with the world economy and the oil patch. He sees oil going back up in price at some point because the so-called surplus is just not great enough to keep the price down for long. Also he's extremely bullish on cyber-security and loves the HACK etf. As always he's bullish on food, because of rising population and the fondness of humanity for 3 squares a day. And as usual he's down on the banksters for putting the world in the current mess it finds itself in as today. There's so much more. Woody has a talent for cutting through the bull.

According to the Survival Doctor James Hubbard, the vaccine critics are all wet. The science behind vaccines is well established and beyond repute. Before the measels vaccine, approximately 1000 Americans per year died of this illness. Once vaccination became near universal that number went down to zero. In addition, Dr. Hubbard says the fears of adjutants and preservatives used to store and suspend the vaccine agents have been completely disproven and have only been kept alive due to the power of the Internet. But you need to be the judge. 

We also discussed how one needs to react to life threatening situations. Because the average person has not received medical training and is not prepared for such events, the odds are panic will set in when confronted with these situations. The key is preparation. Only by preparing can we expect to avoid the onset of panic to stressful, traumatic situations.

Goldmoney's Director of Research Alasdair MacLeod stopped by yesterday to give us an update on what's happening in Europe. Since he's based in the UK and he's beholden to no one, he's got a great perspective on things and they're not pretty. Seems the Greek Government has been taken over by a group of determined adolescents. Their solution to everything is, when in doubt spend more money that you don't have. Raise the minimum wage, increase bankrupt pension payments, hire more civil servants to do nothing and on and on. The very same behavior that has caused the crisis across the globe. And of course they're expecting a different outcome a la Krugman. Good luck on that one! 

And Alasdair explains that this will no doubt lead to an exit from the Euro and it's spawning similar movements in Spain, Italy and elsewhere. The failure of leadership is nearly universal and the results will be catastrophic. More good news for your weekend. Buy gold and silver and forget about it!

John Manfreda is convinced that oil prices will return to and exceed their former highs, sooner rather than later. Whether he's right or wrong, there are some screaming buys among the downtrodden sector in the stock market. As usual the baby has been thrown out with the bath water. There's some dividend plays that would bring a smile to Benjamin Graham's long withered face. John tells you all about them.

Howard Davidowitz lists a half dozen more stores that are in bankruptcy or closing down, including such names as Radio Shack, Jones New York, Izod and Delia's with many more on the way. The economy is sinking and the White House is doing nothing but doubling the debt and increasing the number of people living in poverty. Howard calls it crackpot economics. The American People gave the Democrats a failing report card in the last election and Obama and the Party are in denial. Howard says the Democrats can't even negotiate with him. He listens to no one, except perhaps Al Sharpton. And it's no better overseas with the latest defeat Yemen. Which explains why Obama and Biden have never had jobs. Obama and the teachers' unions cannot and will not be evaluated.

Rob Kirby is first and foremost a seeker of truth. He sees that the globalist system is a method of enslaving humanity. Key to that system was the Euro. With the death of the Euro becoming more likely by the day, he believes that extremely tough times are ahead for all of us. Soon the dominos will begin to fall and it will end with the dollar. Everyone needs to be prepared for this eventuality.

John  LeBoutillier and I discussed the latest scandal in New York and its affect upon the political future of the state. John believes that we need a full time legislature and that outside income for the state assembly and senate should be eliminated. This would shut down the major source of corruption. We also discussed the emergence of Scott Walker as the leading Republican presidential contender. John is worried that he won't sustain attacks from Jeb Bush's vicious campaign team. However Walker beat Wisconsin's public unions and the leftist courts, so there's hope that he'll make it. The real question is whether he can beat the mainstream media and that remains to be seen.

Tekoa DaSilva of Sprott Global Resource Investments is still high on the resource sector. But he cautions that you've got to buy quality at this point in the cycle. Otherwise you could just be gambling. The major resource companies are poised to prosper when the precious metals cycle finally turns, which it will. There's also a number of companies out there which have large cash hoards and are trading for less than the value of their cash alone. But you've got to look closely and make sure that they're poised for growth. In short, there's much to be excited about for the informed investor.

David Morgan is still a believer in precious metals. While gold and silver have backed off a bit from their New Year's Rally, that doesn't change the reasons why they're going higher in the long term. Global debt continues to increase at geometric rates. Unsound economic and governmental practices haven't changed and when individuals and companies look for safety, they have few other choices available. David also has a special project that he's made available to subscribers that he describes as low risk, high profit potential. All the more reason to pay attention to the Morgan Report.

Bestselling Author and fellow Libertarian Charles Goyette joined us for a discussion of what's going on in America and around the world. While the forces of deflation and inflation appear to be slugging it out, the real loser is the middle class. Charles believes that they are the bulwark against totalitarianism and the protector of freedom. When they decline, freedom declines along with them and that's exactly what's been happening since the crash. Can this trend be reversed? We don't know now and can only hope that the forces of freedom regain the upper hand.

Gerald Celente has been following America's Downfall through his Trends Journal for decades. No need to recount all of his incredible calls. He's disgusted with the quality of leadership in the country. He believes that the people in high places only desire is to keep America mired in war and to keep the populace brainwashed in front of their TV's. It's time to end the madness and that's why he started Operation Peace. He's hoping to mobilize millions to demand peace and bring prosperity back to the land. It's time for a revolution. Start by getting healthy and putting only quality food into your body and quality thoughts into your mind. If enough people do it, there's no stopping us.

Dave Kranzler has been following housing price trends for many years now. Government can spin, create new low downpayment and now downpayment schemes, but if people aren't working or are underemployed, it's going to be very difficult to get the housing market going again. What we're seeing in most of the country, with the exception of the internationally influenced markets like New York City and Miami, is a market that's going nowhere fast and Dave believes it will stay that way into the indefinite future, until something changes in the general economy at large. 

And when it comes to employment numbers, they were cooked last month just like they've been cooked for years. They're really at depression era levels. The head of Gallup Research finally came out and said so, at the risk of being disappeared. So you can pretty much take it to the Too Big To Fail Bank.

Finally, Dave's just put together a report showing that while Amazon is a great company with wonderful service and hard to beat prices, they have a problem; they're not making any money and have been relying upon debt to stay afloat, just like the American Economy. How much longer can they go on like this? Will they go the way of Brick and Mortar retailing?

Gary Christenson has been studying precious metals prices for many years. He has a valuation model that shows that the metals are quite undervalued at this particular moment. The key is filtering out the daily moves and gyrations. That's the time when manipulation takes place. Once you filter this out, you get a clear picture and you understand the true direction and where you need to be investing.

John writes, "Tuesday’s markets really liked hearing that Greece’s new “radical-left” leaders had, once in office, backpedalled on their demand for debt restructuring. Now they apparently just want the country’s unmanageable debt to be rescheduled. See Hopes for Greek Debt Deal Rise After Athens Softens Tone.

This, of course, is just semantics. Either a big chunk of Greece’s debt somehow goes away or its economy implodes, so whatever they call the deal it will have to amount to a massive haircut if it’s to prevent a default in 2015. 

Meanwhile, Syriza’s other policies include reversing electricity and oil privatizations, re-hiring of laid-off public sector workers, scrapping recently-streamlined labor laws, raising the minimum wage and restoring the practice of paying an extra month’s benefits to pensioners. In other words, if given free rein they’ll do exactly the things that always produce a bloated public sector that leads to excessive borrowing that in turn guarantees a currency crisis."

Aaron Clarey has taken on a new and unlikely mission, releasing the Black Man from poverty. His new book The Black Man's Guide Out of Poverty is due to be released shortly. What are his keys to achieving this result? Quite simple actually, stay out of trouble with the law, entrenpreneurship and get away from trouble makers. Seems simple and many of his clients at Asshole Consulting are Black and have hopefully already taken this advice to heart.

Robert and I discuss our weight-loss journeys and how we got serious about restoring our health. It all started with a recognition that something was wrong and that if we didn't change it, we were going to have major health problems down the road. Then a visit to the doctor, some medication, major lifestyle changes and presto weight-loss and our lives have changed for the better.

We sat down with Michelle Seiler-Tucker to discuss the Vaccine debate. For many years children have been forced to receive vaccinations against many diseases. Lately many people have been opting out of the program and once extinct childhood diseases have come raging back. The question is, should parents have the right to decide whether their children should receive these vaccines? Michelle comes down on the side of parental choice. 

And speaking of choice, there's no better choice to decide to your financial freedom than owning your own business, which Michelle is an expert. But you're almost always better buying an existing profitable business than starting one from scratch. Something else to think about.

Jordan Goodman is known for his commonsense attitude towards personal finance. He's always looking to help you get that extra edge, whether it's helping you pay your mortgage off decades early or getting extra yield in the safest possible way. He says that low oil prices and the crisis in Europe insure that the dollar's value is going to continue going up. So you need to think outside the box to insure that the value of your investments is stable and to keep on earning healthy returns. He has answers which is why he's called Americas Money Answers Man.

Barry Stuppler has been selling precious metals and rare coins for decades. Last year he achieved a major milestone in getting both houses of Congress and the President to pass a major piece of anti-counterfeiting legislation that will help stem the flow of phony precious metals. And it's just in time too, because the market for gold and silver has been heating up since the 1st of the year. With the Euro crisis, Greece, the unpegging of numerous currencies and lots of other trends, currencies are getting riskier by the day. It's no wonder that demand for bullion is going up.

Bill Holter has been observing the current world crisis with increasing alarm. The debt merry-go-round is spinning faster and faster out of control. Now that ECB has begun QE in earnest and the Swiss have broken the Euro/Franc peg, it's hard to imagine how much longer the system will stay afloat. Greece's debts are unsustainable, the derivatives bubble is about to be popped and counter-party risk is about to become the term dujour. Will there be a systemic collapse leading to seizure of the credit markets? Bill thinks it could happen, but we all certainly hope not.

It's been a while since we last connected with our good friend and colleague Jay Taylor. We've learned much from him over the years. One thing is that governments never learn and that they'd rather keep giving out goodies and feeding their socialist programs, the truth be damned. That's one of the reasons the world finds itself in the current crisis, failure to treat its citizens as grown-ups. Until we all understand that there are no free lunches or EBT cards, we can expect the crashes to keep on coming and to keep getting worse and worse.
