Can a once leading candidate rebrand herself and take back the lead? We will know the answer shortly as Hillary Clinton attempts to be a lighter, funnier and more warm individual. At this point in time, everyone knows who she is and what she's all about. Can she really be trained to be a warm and fuzzy individual? Loren Michaels appears to have let her campaign staff write the script and the mainstream media is a vital assistant in the effort. But the time for rebranding has probably expired.

Noted real estate expert from Tampa, Jamie Meloni and I discuss the new movie 99 Homes, coming out this Friday. Of course the banks, as always, are the bad guys in this movie about a foreclosure victim who realizes that if you can't beat them then the best way is to join them. Things get crazy from there and many distortions and exaggerations take place. But it's probably worth the watch.

Everything is falling apart. John writes, "After the markets failed to embrace its most recent interest rate dither, the Fed dispatched pretty much its entire PR team to make sure we understood that rates would rise Next Month For Sure. 

Then everything kind of fell apart. Emerging market capital flight accelerated…"

We spoke with Frank Vernuccio about the growing threats that the country faces. He sees the threats from Russia, China and Iran growing and little being done about it. Is it time to increase the defense budget and start taking things more seriously? Frank thinks it is.

Stock markets got slammed, especially the Toronto Venture, which is close to all time lows. Precious metals were down, especially platinum-due to the growing VW Scandal. Energy continues to decline back to earlier year lows. What's an investor to do? Mickey says buy gold and platinum as an insurance policy and keep some greenbacks close by as well.

Throughout all the turmoil in the various markets, Jason's business is booming. Stocks will come and go, but there are only so many single family homes and land as well. Foreign money is flowing into the US, seeking a safe haven. In addition, financial repression continues unabated, thereby providing very few investment alternatives that will yield a decent return, without taking huge risks, such as high yield junk bonds. In addition, Jason will be hosting an event in Orlando, Florida, where I will be attending and MC'ing. Go to and sign up now. There's a special offer for the FSN Community. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Raul Villacis ranks in Top 1% of Hispanic Entrepreneurs and is a mentor and globally known influential speaker and business coach. He says that successful entrepreneurs are sometimes seen as super human. These people often defy all the odds and keep at their goals with relentless tenacity.

In actuality, there is something special about successful entrepreneurs, though perhaps not a superpower. Instead it’s a different way of thinking. For example, there are seven unique traits that virtually all successful entrepreneurs share. These traits show how their mindset differs from most people and thus leads them to find unimaginable success. Raul helps his clients get into that mindset and start acting like the successes they wish to become, with amazing results that follow.

Lane Mendelsohn is the CEO of Market Technologies and developer of the VantagePoint financial trading software. Lane's father Louis, started trading stocks and commodities in the 1970s and, shortly after personal computers were invented, began developing technical analysis trading software for his own use as a commodities trader. In May 1983 he introduced the concept of strategy back-testing and optimization in trading software for personal computers in a series of articles published in Futures magazine and released of ProfitTaker Futures Trading Software, the world’s first commercially available technical analysis trading software that performed strategy back-testing and optimization on PCs." Even at that time his back tester was so sophisticated and intricate that it handled commodity contract rollovers and lock limit conditions. Currently, Lane claims that the software is 86 percent accurate and the firm has helped thousands to successfully trade in these increasingly volatile markets.

Jordan Goodman joined us today. As we've discussed in the past, markets continue their downward trend and interest rates are staying artificially low, there aren't a lot of investment alternatives. Jordan still believes that paying down your debt is crucial. In addition, bridge financing is still yielding 6 percent returns, not bad when banks are paying nearly nothing. Jordan isn't overly optimistic about the near term future and is in a defensive posture until further notice.

John writes, "The US markets awoke to news of several big, disturbing overseas events:

Glencore implodes. Think of Swiss commodities giant Glencore as a modern version of Enron, in the sense that it owns physical assets like mines and oil wells around the world and runs perhaps the biggest commodities derivatives trading desk. And — also like Enron — it’s apparently unprepared for extreme commodity price volatility. This morning its stock price plunged even further and its credit default swaps — the cost of insuring payment on its its bonds — blew out to record levels. 

If Glencore loses its investment grade rating as now seems likely, its access to cheap capital will evaporate and it will fail. This matters for several reasons, the most important of which is the company’s unspecified but certainly huge derivatives book which, like AIG’s in 2008, is a serious threat to the leveraged speculating community. 

Commodities from oil to gold are down hard on the news. 

Saudi Arabia cashes out. The world’s dominant oil exporter can’t pay its bills with crude at $50 a barrel so it’s spending down foreign exchange reserves and borrowing hand over fist. This morning it was reported that the Saudi sovereign wealth fund — a major player in global bond and equity markets — was cashing out and bringing its money back home. "

Danielle Park joined us for a discussion about the Central Bankers' inability to keep the system going. As a result, stock prices are headed much lower and this will put pressure on governments to purge the system and bring back morality. How effective this restoration will be remains the questions. But also driving this transformation is technology, especially the breakthroughs coming in energy and transportation. The two combined together are forcing changes at all levels of society, and the financial system is hardly exempt.

Erik Hadik has been warning for a while that the Russian Bear would be rearing his ugly head. And he's absolutely correct. From Crimea to Syria Russia is on the move. This combined with other factors should lead to high volatility and higher precious metals prices. 2016 is the year to watch.

We spoke with John Rubino today about the intractable situation the Fed now finds itself in. To raise or rates or leave them where they are is the question. Raising them could further strengthen the dollar and thus hurt exports. Leaving rates at near zero isn't really helping things either as shown by the dismal economic stats. Perhaps there is no monetary solution to the quandary. More likely it calls for some true leadership that has been totally lacking up to this point.

Like so many other things in life, selling your home is a process. Real estate expert and author Brett Furman suggests that rather than waiting to do the work when you actually list your home, get a head start. It also often pays to bring in a home inspector to evaluate what work needs to be done and how much it will cost to have it completed. That way, you'll know exactly what you're up against and be able to avoid the last minute scramble to get it done.

Craig Hemke says the Fed works for the banks, not for the people. Therefore, if they determine that it's in the banks' best interest to raise rates they will do it. Forget the burgeoning national debt and the fragile world economy, the only thing that matters to the Fed is the well being of their masters, the Banks, especially the Too Big To Fails. If that seems irrational, it shouldn't. The Fed's real purpose is to protect and to help the Banks flourish. And that's exactly what it's done throughout it's history.

As usual the numbers don't lie. Gordon T. Long and I predicted over a year ago that the Great News coming out of Detroit was more about easy credit than about solid fundamentals. Fast forward a year and now the truth is beginning to become obvious. Auto leasing is way up and the supply of cars about to come off-lease is going sky high, thus driving used and new car prices down. Around the globe auto makers are going to take a major hit. From China, to Germany, to Mexico, to the good old USofA, the story is the same. Markets artificially goosed up by easy credit. But the day of reckoning is getting closer.
