Markets are in for a very wild ride. Covid taking front and center and the stock market is still holding up in spite of the threat.There’s an attempt at the Santa Rally, we'll see if it succeeds. However, markets will close higher for the year. Renewed investor interest will keep things moving to the upside. They’re looking beyond. Rally will continue into January. More stimulus is certainly coming and the markets can't get enough of it. At some point there will be a pretty sharp connection. Perhaps another March crash. But until then, individual industries are rocketing higher. EV market is on fire. Big money is flowing into it. How long will they print for and drive the Dollar down? Nominal returns aren’t real returns. 

Gold and precious metals are the ultimate insurance policy. For obvious reasons. You need physical things and we’re coming into a commodity super-cycle. Where do you go when currencies are falling. 

Copper has had an impressive upward move. It’s a good sign on the overall economy. Fundamentals are down, but markets are saying otherwise. Oil is recovering and this could be a full-fledged bull market. One reason why metals have been under-performing. Gold and silver are still in a very positive bull flag pattern. 

Platinum could be on the verge of great returns. It was near a breakout. Could be a multi-month/year breakout. It’s not a crowded traded. This is how bottoms are created. 

Interest rates will be stagnant for well into the future. Bonds are starting to show some signs rallying upward. The Fed can't afford to raise rates now or forever.

What does they term insanity really mean? It’s actually a legal term  when a person doesn’t not know the difference between right and wrong at a particular moment when a crime was committed. Mental health professionals deal with mental disease and personality disorders. 

Finally, there are new approaches in this area. Many efforts to treat the mentally ill, until recently, have been ineffective. Now, there’s great hope that mental illness and personality disorders can be effectively treated with hallucinogens? Society is desperately seeking ways to help these people change for the better. You can teach some people to change their behavior, but changing their thoughts isn’t going to happen.

Case studies have indicated there’s an improvement treating them with psychedelics. There’s great a volume of studies done by Russian psychiatrists that show high cure rates of depression and other mental maladies. In the West, the area has been dominated by big Pharma and it is very hard to publish research into hallucinogen treatments. In short, there’s no money in it.

But all that’s changing now. Widespread use of Ketamine to treat a variety of illnesses is going truly mainstream and Dr. Huber is helping to lead the way. We’re on the brink of a major breakthrough in treating mental illness and it can’t come soon enough.

2020 will be remembered as the year of the Pandemic and the ridiculous response to it. This has created a precarious situation for the economy and could be just what precious metals needed to really take off. We saw record high gold prices in 2020, but silver lagged behind. Now all that could be changing. John shares with us a number of his top picks for 2021. And there’s some really good ones here. Plus there’s one long-shot pick that could pay-off big time. Whatever happens, 2021 is going to be heck of a ride.

Right before Biden’s electoral victory, JPMorgan had called another 5% price hike in a “blue wave”.

Though Trump loves gold and adorns everything with the precious metal, the precious metal itself was banking on a Biden win.

Why? Because what it loves more than anything is the Biden-backed promise of monetary stimulus

Historically, gold has risen consistently on similar economic packages…

And today is no different.

But the best way to take advantage of a transformative year for gold is at the center of the next major discovery …

Today markets are making new all-time highs. There’s been a disconnect in the market and the real economy. November was one of the best months ever. Value stocks are under performing and it’s been all about growth stocks now. Has it peaked or is it time to go elsewhere? Money should be rotating into dividend paying companies. Dividends are still relevant according to Andrew. He believes that vaccines will help the economy recover, but we don’t know when and how fast. There will be bumps in the road. Are value investors becoming an endangered species? What about Tesla? Just upgraded today and it’s been going parabolic. Andrew believes the volatility isn’t right for his clients and the valuations could be too high. It could get hammered in a down market.

Gerald called the Covid Collapse back on January 28, 2020. Coronavirus was a forgone conclusion. It’s a war, the Covid war. The governor of New York has turned into a petty dictator. Another phase of the war. Biden claims, it’s patriotic for everyone to wear a mask? It's time to think for yourself. If not, we will follow our leaders to our destruction. Off to the Covid war. History is repeating itself. 99.7% or 99.8% recovery rate. We must unite and fight. We need to set brushfires of freedom. The Great Reset is upon us. Will you just shut up and take it?

Against the wall of worry stocks have miraculously highs with leadership switching from the Fangs to the small cap Russell 2000. Dollar has been going lower, Fed still working its magic, and Fed and treasury are working hand in hand. Will we see major food inflation and inflation throughout the economy? Inflation could let the air out of the market bubble. Oil is no longer playing any role in Fed inflation measures. Will the Fed’s hand be forced? Will Biden raise taxes? We don’t know what the Senate will be. There’s always black swans flying around the geo-political scene. You need to be able to read the chart. The little investor this year has helped it go higher.

A recent visit to New York City during Thanksgiving week showed us what we already knew, New York City is dying on the vine. Riots, Covid, extremely poor leadership and the inability to control costs and properly manage the place is leading to a tremendous crash. New York City, State and many others will be receiving a tax-payer funded bailout in 2021, regardless who is president. It's just a matter of what strings are attached. We also discuss the impending failure of the Three Gorges Dam, perhaps on 12-21-2020, that gold and silver have probably turned the corner and much, much more.

"We saw it coming.... Deep down, we suspected that, after capitulating to mandatory lockdowns, masks, and  social distancing, we would be told to 'man up' and stand in line for MANDATORY vaccines" cautions Carole Lieberman, M.D., M.P.H. Dr. Lieberman is not only a Board Certified Psychiatrist, with a Masters in  Public Health, she's a recipient of an NIMH Fellowship in Epidemiology for her UCLA research on how to use the media to prevent and treat physical and mental disorders. 
 
Carole Lieberman, M.D., M.P.H. ('America's Psychiatrist') , a board-certified Beverly Hills psychiatrist and bestselling author is available for interviews.
 
Dr. Lieberman is NOT telling people NOT to get the vaccine. Indeed, she says, "If you want a vaccine, by all means, go for it. But, if you let the government 'force you' to put something into your body, they will have  crossed the final frontier and your freedom is over!" Dr. Lieberman clarifies, "Does 'mandatory' mean they will come to your house, hold you down and stick a needle in you - like it or not? No (at least not at the moment).  
 
But, there are other ways of 'forcing' you to do this, and they have already begun. Even if no actual 'law' is  passed that makes it a crime to refuse the vaccine, there are already plans to make life impossible for people who won't simply comply." Here are seven examples: 
 
1. Vaccination certificates and Immunity passports have quietly become part of the language used when talking about coronavirus - and each has scientific and ethical downsides, as well as black market potential. 
 
2. Ticketmaster is making plans to verify your vaccination status via smartphone or whether you've tested  negative within a 24-72 hour window before a performance. Every event you want to attend - from the Lakers to Lady Gaga could be off-limits without proof of compliance.
 
3. Although it may be unconstitutional for the Federal government to make a law requiring you to get a vaccine,  they could do it in more surreptitious ways - such as requiring proof of vaccine to get a passport. 
 
4. A more serious threat is state and city governments, that can make such laws and create penalties like they have done for people who don't wear masks or who dare to take a walk in the park. These could be fines, taxes or worse. 
 
5. There is already precedent for Covid19 vaccine mandates to cite - such as when NYC required people in parts of Brooklyn to prove they got the measles vaccine or pay $1,000. Covid hotspots around the country could require the same. Some hospitals require staff to get flu vaccines. Schools require vaccines for certain diseases. But, none of these mandates were accompanied by other draconian measures like we have seen with Covid19. 
 
6. Companies could fire employees who refuse to get vaccinated, except in rare circumstances where  accommodation could be requested. 
 
7. Airlines, restaurants, stores and stadiums could also make the vaccine a condition of entry, just like they have done with signs that say, 'No shirt, no shoes, no service'."
 
Vaccines have been touted as the cure for the pandemic, so its no wonder many people are excited that they're almost here. But, before we roll up our sleeves - or pull down our pants - to get the needle, we need to not only thoroughly investigate the safety of each vaccine, but we also need to 'follow the money' to see who is getting  rich by promoting mass vaccination. Bottom line: Just like with lockdowns, masks, and social distancing, it must be each individual's FREE CHOICE whether we want to take the vaccine or not."

And copper is crushing it:

How many things have to be soaring before we're in an inflationary environment? 

Still no action on stimulus and all kinds of benefits running out before year-end. 

Economy is starting to slow as people have to dig into savings to buy basics.

Gold still falling. Where's support? Does seasonality matter this year?

Biden's administration is looking like classic business as usual. All Clinton/Obama retreads. 

In other words, the Dems learned exactly nothing from half the country voting for a populist. The mid-terms might be brutal.

Osino Resources (sponsor) keeps hitting milestone after milestone, with no end in site. This is exactly what successful investors desire in an emerging junior miner along with being: well financed, well-run and an aggressive driller.  To date, their Twin Hills Central project has yielded impressive results and now there’s a significant new discovery at the Clouds Target, which further enhances and validates  Osino’s amazing potential.

If as expected, there’s significant mineralization between Clouds and Twin Hills, then the company will become a major success story. Osino’s CEO Heye Daun  plans to grow the resource and he expects investors to be pleasantly surprised when it’s released in 2021. Osino is Daun’s third venture, and this one really seems to be the charm. Which is why, as shareholders we are extremely optimistic.

According to Dan Ferris, editor of Extreme Value, intrinsic value has never changed throughout history. How you go about analyzing it is another story and it has changed much over time. Whereas, we used to use book value, asset value and other objective measures, now we look more to future events. The idea of reducing the value to book value or p/e no longer makes sense to Dan. The numbers are all history and they’re the result of actions taken by management in the past. This type of analysis can easily miss the boat. You look at what management did and ask if they can keep doing it or do it even better? Are there hidden assets that could be put to better use? Hidden assets tend to find you. Dan looks for optionality. The ability to grow over time even if it’s a wasting asset. Dan gives an example of finding companies that are rolling up their industry and consolidating it. Insurance and waste management are examples. You never know when a deal will come along that will transform the company. Dan is is industry agnostic and will examine any and all industries. Right now he’s avoiding commercial real estate and retail for obvious reasons. He’s North America focused but could go outside the US should the opportunity arise, but Dan is reluctant. And why should he, he's found amazing success right here at home.

First, to all FSN Community Members, Happy Thanksgiving! While we are certainly living through unsettled times, there are many reasons to be thankful and banish despair from our lives. Years later when I look back at this time, it will have proven to be an amazing time of growth on many fronts. Spiritually, emotionally and materially.

Human growth and potential are harder to realize during the easy times. As I have repeatedly told my children over the course of their lives, you learn way more from failure than from success. I also want to share with you a recent discovery. I just came across the work of YouTube sensation Wim Hof. I have found his breathing exercises, when combined with my meditation practice, to be of immense benefit. It has revealed to me that in order to find true happiness, we must always focus within and act to lessen the impact of external affairs upon our lives. In other words, who is President should have no effect upon your internal state of joy. 

That’s a little more philosophical than I usually indulge in, but during these unprecedented times, there’s every reason to hope for and expect better times ahead. But as always, it must begin with a transition from within.

The pull back in gold prices has been widely expected and anticipated. Gold bull markets don’t go up in a straight-line. Of course it’s painful to see your portfolio value go down quickly. But Jamie says that even at $1800 gold everything in mining stock portfolio is still worth holding on to. When it comes to Bitcoin vs. Gold, Jamie observes that there’s no leverage in BTC. Gold miners give an opportunity for major leveraged returns. While BTC has had a major move, it hasn’t gone up 100 or even 10 times. What we do know is that we don’t know what will happen with Bitcoin during these uncertain times. However, based upon history, we can  get a very good idea what will happen to precious metals. And that’s why the case for mining stocks is so compelling.

Andy Schectman, CEO of Miles-Franklin joined us. We've seen a rather rapid decrease in precious metals prices during the past week. But Andy isn't concerned in the least. It's just an effort by the bullion banks to squeeze out weak holders. But it's destined to fail, because the people who actually take delivery from the Comex will not be cowed. They are family offices, hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds who understand that the time to buy gold is now. Andy explains that we are approaching contract expiration and that the goal is to stop this group from standing for delivery. It's all part of an elaborate effort to stop the outflow of metals from the Comex. And it's doomed to failure. Which is why the price for gold is going up no matter what.

Landmark Danish study finds no significant effect for facemask wearers

Only minimal stimulus seems likely during the transition. (Funny how anything less than a trillion dollars seems minimal these days.)

Is another broad-based crash like March coming?

How do you prepare for something like that?

-- Equity put options – example of an S&P 500 put that more than doubled in March while the market when down 20%. 

-- Stop loss orders – though they don’t always work in flash crashes.

-- Go to cash now and book a month at the beach. 

-- Low-ball good until cancelled buy orders. (Examples of gold mining stocks that tripled from their March lows.)

Expect gold miners to report great earnings and massive cash flow in January and Feb, which will support their stock prices.

GR Silver Mining (sponsor) currently has 20 Geologists working round the clock to expand their already impressive resource. Four drills are turning and more are on the way. The Company is proof that the harder you work, the luckier you get. While building a connector road to an underground access tunnel, the team came across some interesting geological samples. Upon closer look, they found extensive mineralization that should substantially add to their NI 43-101 resource. Marcio and the team are more excited than ever, and he believes they’re on the cusp to achieving their 100+ million ounce goal. GR is extremely well-financed, with C$8 million in the bank, so there’s need to go back to the market for additional capital to continue their aggressive drill program. Which is why we’re extremely optimistic and currently acquiring shares.

Market Forecast for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. Volatility is the theme. There’s so much uncertaintly that we could go anywhere. Changing political directions mean it’s up in the air. There’s lots of pains in Blue States, small business, restaurants, etc. People are stocking up on swimming pools and RV’s. Services are getting slammed. Employees will have to retrain and reinvent.

Instability economic, political and geopolitical will be a major theme for the coming year. Without a political change we’d have less uncertainty. Change can freeze spending and investments. A recession could be triggered.

Inflation outlook with trillions being printed out of thin air. Low interst rates and flooding money, real estate home prices aren’t falling. The supply of resale homes is dropping and so is demand. There are indicators that inflation could be a growing factor. Not sky-rocketing yet.

Above everything else, just keep saving and saving. You might need the funds to live on or you’ll have a great opportunity when prices come down

Stock markets have been trading on hope and optimism. 40 years ago was a similar tumultuous period. The Iranian Revolution and the Russian invasion of Aghanhistan. It’s the 40 year cycle taking place. The 40 year cycle has repeated itself very closely. We had the March meltdown, the spike recovery, and then new lows. Very similar to 1980. Anohther intermediate peak in coming this month and continuing to swing, which will lead to another leg up peaking in May 2021. But there are down swings coming.

Gold/silver coming peak again in May 2021. We could see a bottom by the end of 2020. Gold will move up with the stock market and then an inflation driven peak. Gold below $1800 before the end of the year and silver could hit $19. The Dollar has been bottoming and could see an increase at the same time. And perhaps a settling down geo-politically could be around the corner.

US Dollar, a rebound through mid-December. March 2021 could see the Dollar bottom, perhaps near the 2018 low of 88 on the DXY. The dollar was fortelling a democrat in the Whitehouse. Eric mentioned that several months ago when we last spoke and appears to be correct.

Interest rates have apparently hit their lows in mid 2020. Eric had been calling this a while. And it appears we’re there now. The high should hold for a couple of years. Rates will be edging higher. Government spending is going to cause rates to rise or the Dollar standing could be injured.

John Paul Mendocha --- Turnaround Specialist, Serial Entrepreneur and Author of “Remote Work for a Better World”& “Most Businesses Fail in the First 5 Minutes: It Just Takes Them 3 to 5 Years to Realize It” 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses to rethink their marketing plans, both now and into the future. The current pandemic has been a threat to the entire global economy and without a doubt; businesses took the biggest hit of all. 

While several brands already declared bankruptcy in the wake of eroding resources and dwindling assets, there are still many who would follow the same suit, provided the financial activities do not start the earliest. The post-lockdown era will see brands competing frantically for attention and eventually, survival and growth will depend on the strategies, proactive approaches, and certainly capital infusion. Where do they start? Do they all need a Turnaround?

  • What are the best ways to approach a turnaround post COVID-19?
  • Is reevaluating your brand the best strategy to take?
  • Is using Fear as a motivator a proper way to build a presence?
  • Final say: Shutdown or Turnaround? ---Which way makes more sense? 

John Paul Mendocha uses his expertise from his new book, “Remote Work for a Better World,” to share his tips on the best approach in the post COVID-19 era.
