Gary Wagner stopped by the show today to explain why technical analysis along with a fundamental grasp of the underlying economic trends and issues gives us the best understanding of where gold and silver are heading. He is quite sure that the vicious precious metals correction has run its course and that we are now witnessing a new upward leg in the precious metals/commodities super-bull market. This means returns for those who are in already will abound, and buying now will be extremely positive. 

It always seems hardest to jump into a market that appears to be bottoming out in the hopes that you will catch the next wave up. It requires an ability to ignore the pundits and the so-called experts and keeping your wits about you. Gary's been doing it a lot of years, and he's displaying very little concern about the downside of this move. No one knows for sure what tomorrow will bring, however we do know that history often rewards those who have the ability to deviate from the pack.

Dan Miller, internationally renown life coach and author of many books proves you only need 48 days to do the work you love and were meant to do. As he says, "Our mission at 48 Days is to foster the process of imagining, dreaming and introspection, to help people find their calling and true path, and to translate that into meaningful, purposeful and profitable daily work." What could be greater than this? Sounds too simple and easy to be true, but the Financial Survival Network is proof that it isn't. Using the techniques outlined in Dan's books and website, I found my calling--and a large part of the work I do is to help you find yours.

Surviving and thriving in the new economy isn't easy, but it can and is being done by many. Stop living your life by default and stop leading a life of quiet desperation. Take control of your future by taking control of your present. There's absolutely no reason for you to ever do a job that you don't enjoy and that doesn't provide you with the personal satisfaction you desire and crave.

Smash Minerals--Soon to Become a Smashing Success--01-11-12

Are you starting to believe that junior mining companies are destined to become the hottest market sector? There are many many juniors out there, so finding the right ones who are poised for success is the key. Adrian Fleming, CEO of Smash Minerals thinks he's on to something. And he's done it so many times before that he could be right. His last major strike, Underworld was so to major Kinross and that left Adrian with a problem. He loves starting new mining companies and going for the gold. So he reached into his phone directory, starting building a new team and thus Smash (SSH-TSXV) was born. 

They're currently merging with Prosperity Goldfields and they have a number or large claims. They're well capitalized and have committed to an aggressive exploration program, for which they have high hopes. Will Adrian strike gold yet again, for someone with his record, success is never an accident.

We've all been plagued by the late night commercials where a New York Lawyer, in an ugly cowboy hat and ill fitting designer suit, harangues us to let him handle our case for Social Security Disability Benefits. His voice is winy and you'd probably just give him the case to shut him up. However, little do most of you know, he's cleaning up on the deal! The Binder & Binder firm grossed $88 million last year, and the Binders went home with one quarter of the gross, $22 million! This is so shocking, it almost restores our faith in free enterprise. Except, firms like these are gaming the system because they know there's really very little legal opposition to obtaining disability benefits for their client. The Federal Government thinks these cases are so piddly, they usually don't even assign a prosecuting attorney. The only thing standing between Binder and their legal fees is an overworked and under-appreciated Administrative Law Judge.

In 2001, roughly 7 million disabled Americans collected Social Security Disability. Today, there's nearly 11 million collecting. Have we gotten that much sicker as a nation? Or is there something else going on? Much of the increase could be attributed to states that have encouraged welfare recipients to apply for Social Security Disability Benefits because over time it helps reduce the state's Medicaid roles as recipients get switched over to Medicare, for which the states contribute nothing.

The next time you're wondering why Social Security is quickly becoming insolvent, look no further than Binder & Binder, after all, "You have enough to worry about."

The International Forecaster joins us again, this week for our bi-weekly chat. Bob and I discuss the gold and silver New Year's take-off. We touch upon the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's review and investigation of the CME group. The C.F.T.C.'s has been tasked with looking into the leading causes of the MF Global failure. Check out a great interview Bob posted about this at www.theinternationalforecaster.com.

Most of us thought Jon Corzine was finished, we were all sure he would never work on Wall Street again. However, Corzine is rumored to be going back into business and is even looking for new office space near the New York Stock Exchange. MF global is attempting to get everyone their money back, but why didn't CME stand behind their clients from the beginning? Regardless of who's really at fault, Bob predicts major changes in the way the Comex and other exchanges operate and a whole new level of transparency. There's really no other choice if we expect markets to continue functioning.

Bottom lime, these government agencies aren't helping the public. Instead, they aim to serve the industry or group they are supposed to be monitoring, and this is upsetting the gold and silver markets. You should always remember there's two sides to debt, and when it comes to taking customers' funds, a thief like MF Global can never pass good title to stolen goods. Gold and silver are doing well, and at present, notwithstanding government manipulation to the contrary. Bob predicts the next stop is 1700, then 1800 and 1900. The fact that gold and silver are increasing while the dollar's in a up trend and the Euro's getting slammed is a major bullish indicator. Never forget one of the International Forecaster most telling lines, "inflate or die." It really explains everything you need to know about financial markets.

Mickey Fulp, the Mercenary Geologist, says that 2012 will be a big year for gold, silver, mining companies, and commodities, including energy. Mickey knows from whence he speaks. He's been a professional freelance geologist for decades. When it comes to picking junior miners on the fast track, Mickey has a simple method of assessing their prospects. He goes to resource shows around the world, sits down with senior managers and asks the tough questions--and this is exactly what is needed. Mickey amusingly quotes Mark Twain's 100 plus year take on mining companies, "A mine is a hole in the ground with a liar standing next to it." Those words are truer today than ever before. Most new mining ventures, just like most startups end in failure. The key is picking the 10-15% that have the management expertise, ore quality, and proper capital structure.

While this sounds difficult, Mickey has been doing it forever. The other factor is buying low. Many junior miners will double and then lose 50 percent within the course of a year. So if you purchase the right company at the right time, this is a sure fire prescription for profits. Then after the company doubles, simply sell half and take your money off the table. What could be simpler?

We're back on with Jeb Handwerger to discuss "The January effect," and how to pick the best mining stocks. According to Jeb, gold and silver miners will rise again in 2012, and the time honor trope regarding the month of January reigns true as the first week of the New Year shows stocks opening on a bullish note. When asked about the best gain for 2012, Jeb says investors must look at undervalued junior mining natural resource assets--he recommends companies with strong financial positions that are progressing toward a stage of mine development.

As you're all aware, the Euro has been breaking into new record low levels. While many are concerned, Jeb states that there is a Golden opportunity for mining stocks emerging in this Eurozone crisis. While many people are concerned going into the dollar with long term treasuries, the major mining companies are looking to transfer their growing cash positions into undervalued European natural resource assets. As the Euro sinks into new lows, European mining capital is flowing in the right direction as miners costs are going down and margins are going up. 

As we look into precious metals as the true base for currency, we're going to need the mining companies to produce more. Demand has not subsided; in fact, we're in a bull market regarding gold and silver--the trend has not been violated. Although gold finished higher for the last 11 years, Jeb really likes silver for out preforming gold in 2012. Regardless, it looks like this is going to be an up-year for gold and silver mining stocks. You should stand strong--this is not a time to sell for pennies on the dollar!

Ranting Andy is back, relaxed and a little calmer after the new year. We got right down to business. Bob, a listener wanted to know why there's no apparent shortage of silver in the marketplace now. Andy explained that while the paper prices were certainly depressed, the current premium on Eric Sprott's Physical Silver ETF has hit a new historic high of over 30 percent. Sprott's ETF is unique in that holders are permitted to convert their shares into physical silver. This means that investors are willing to pay higher premiums than are charged by metals dealers in the physical market. And those physical premiums have been on the rise as well. So when it comes to price and supply of silver, there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.

And then of course, there's the fact that no publicly traded markets are functioning properly at the present time. They may have been mortally injured by governmental and large bank manipulation as well as an undermining of confidence by the MF Global collapse. No matter how you figure it, zero percent interest rates, off balance sheet gimmicks by the government and the large financial groups and collapsing asset values, there is no longer a means of determining objective values. The markets are now a ponzi scheme that are used to seperate unsuspecting marks from their cash.

Cyrus a devoted listener to the Financial Survival Network asked several questions. And this is one of the great things about doing a show, listener feedback. Have you wondered what the US will look like if there’s a complete economic meltdown? Or how much longer it will take? What about the government’s willingness to bring on a false flag attack to justify going to war once again? And if that war does come to pass, will it be a World War or just another case of military adventurism?

These are all important questions for which you will receive my opinions. We love listener feedback and urge you to call or write us. We’ll probably read your question live or play your voicemail message. So keep the questions coming.

Zerohedge.com is one of the best financial sites out there. They have the insider track on so many issues and have a full depth understanding of the fraud and theft that has been taking place in our financial system for way too long. They believe that Dr. Ron Paul has elevated the presidential debate by raising important issues such as geometric growth of debt, ceaseless money printing, the gold standard and much more. 

However, to the casual observer, it appears that Dr. Paul has been marginalized by both his election opponents and the main stream media as well. While he had a respectable showing in the Iowa Caucuses, further successes are questionable and less likely. Whereas he has gained somewhat of a following, especially among the younger people, we suspect that his  affect upon the ruling elite and the population at large will show itself after the grand collapse has occurred.

A short tribute to man's best friend, my constant companion for the past 14.5 years, a true loyal friend whom I shall eternally miss. Baily, a female border collie, expert herder and all around great dog. She suffered on for many years because she just couldn't stand the idea of leaving us. She was always on guard for any potential threat, be it wolves, coyotes or bad people. She was smart, full of life and always ready to help out. 

R.I.P. Baily Lutz!

We interviewed Rick Ackerman yesterday, and he hit us with his prediction that the dollar was headed up. However, he was emphatic this was not an indication of the dollar’s fundamental health but rather a sign of the Euro’s impending slide. The buck is “The best looking horse in the glue factory.” Unfortunately, while misery may enjoy company, it doesn’t make anyone any happier.

These are exciting times in which we are living, and there is an end to the major eruptions that we are witnessing. Rick’s hidden pivot system can help keep you ahead of the trend and ready for the next Black Swan.

Some of my best thinking takes place at the gym; it must have something to do with the enhanced oxygen supply and the high level of endorphins. While doing cardio and aerobics, it suddenly dawned on me that what the world needs is a special bankruptcy court, just for countries. That way, when a country becomes insolvent, they would do what companies and individuals have been doing for hundreds of years, file Chapter 11 (a reorganization plan). When things are really bad they could file a Chapter 7 and simply liquidate the country and go out of business altogether.

It really makes total sense. A trustee could be appointed to make the decisions that politicians just can’t bring themselves to do. Like reducing excessive retirement benefits for government workers, or drastically reducing entitlement programs. The current system is failing so an alternative must be found shortly. Perhaps this is it.

Andrew Horowitz (TheDisciplinedInvestor.com) has been investing most of his life, but he's not locked into any one type of investment. He's concerned about politicians whose attitudes are to avoid unpleasantry today, in order to enhance the odds of electoral victory tomorrow. Horowitz believes this can-kicking behavior has been going on for a long time, and the situation will continue unabated for quite a while. It is therefore extremely important to regularly revisit your investments, especially stocks, to ensure that the reasons you initially made the purchase are still applicable.

Horowitz an optimist by nature, but he believes that as markets change, so must your strategy. His advice is highly regarded and widely followed. Even if the world is going to end shortly, there's really not much you can do about it--so be happy for today, invest as if there will be a tomorrow, and hope for the best! Andrew has a great sense of humor and is very engaging; he really knows his stuff.

Ed Steer the produces Gold & Silver Daily for CaseyResearch.com. This is a free publication that is vital to anyone who is watching the controlled demolition of the global financial system. Most nights, he starts writing around 7pm and hits the send key 5am the following morning. Ed's been a long standing member of GATA (Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee) and has a unique understanding of the manipulated financial and precious metals markets. He's extremely wary of the primary ETF's (Exchange Traded Funds) GLD and SLV and believes that CEF, GTU and the Sprott funds are much safer and secure alternatives, especially because their metal is not stored in the United States.

Ed is appalled at the United States's decline. He says that the upcoming election is merely a contest of puppets who will ultimately be controlled by the financial power elite. He's extremely wary of the future and believes that a financial implosion is rapidly descending upon us. And the only safety in an unsafe world is clearly gold and silver.

Bix Weir of RoadtoRoota.com joins us this week to discuss the impending implosion of the world's financial markets. Bix believes the mother of all crashes is happening very soon, possibly as soon as this March. It could be triggered by the CFTC's implementation of position limits for silver as well as other commodities and their upcoming definition of SWAPs. This is supposed to be done sometime in January, with a 60 day implementation period to follow, and Bix believes this could and will trigger a market crash. He warns us to keep an eye on the European situation--the European and US banks are up  to their collective eyeballs in derivatives, which have been likened to weapons of mass financial destruction. The bank collapse in Europe could lead to bank collapses in the US, so follow Europe closely as this could be your last warning to get all of your monies out of the US banks.

The widespread financial fraud has been on-going. We've been printing our way to prosperity since the early 70's. So hold onto your metals, they're the only answer to the government's debasing of currency. Gold and silver are going to be freely traded, and soon! Probably by the end of 2012. Free markets will rise again; unfortunately, we're going to have to live through the crash to get there.

John Grisham has been an international, best selling author for nearly 20 years. His specialty, legal thrillers like The Firm, The Rainmaker, The Litigators and many others; Grisham has also written a couple of children's legal thrillers as well. He's sold over 250 million books, ranking him among the most successful authors on the planet. I've enjoyed his earlier works; but recently, I've found that his work was starting to feel like it was written from a standard outline. However, his latest work, The Litigators, seems to have broken this formulaic mold. 

The story centers on David Zinc, a Harvard grad and burned-out, 5th year associate of a top firm with impeccable credentials. His future is extremely bright until the day he opts to go on a major bender instead of heading into work. The fun begins when the protagonist gets fired and subsequently hooks up with the ambulance chasing firm of Finley and Figg. Things are looking up, but then it all hits the fan again. In order to avoid sanctions and a potential multi-million dollar liability for filing a frivolous action, David goes up against his old firm in the courtroom. 

The Litigators is an absurd farcical look at practicing law in the 21st Century. It will provide consistent laughs; highly recommended.

Bill Murphy, former pro-football player and Wall Streeter has been leading the charge for over a decade. He claims that the precious metals markets have been fixed by the government, for the purpose of propping up the bankrupt fiat money system. The country and the world have been living beyond their means for decades and now it's all coming home to roost. Politicians and the political system have failed to stem the world's desire for ever bigger and more powerful government. Other than Congressman Ron Paul, no one has stepped up to the plate to make the case for free markets and limited government.

Originally, when Bill started his movement, he was treated as a conspiracy crank and was fitted for a tin foil hat by the mainstream media. Thirteen years later, his foresight has become accepted wisdom. According to Bill, it is clear that governments will do anything they can to avoid making the tough decisions and if that means manipulating precious metals' prices, so be it. Pretty soon, we'll find out if Bill is right. Just keep watching the prices of gold and silver and you will too.

Ron Hera, the well respected and highly regarded proprietor of HeraResearch.com explains what 2012 will look like. And it ain't pretty. The governments of the world seem hell bent into leading us all into a financial dark ages. Ever expanding debt and currency units cannot end well. It never has and never will. Until policy makers are willing to face the facts that the financial system is not facing a liquidity crisis, but rather a insolvency crash, nothing can change. It's as if you went to the Doctor and he treated you for a common cold, when you were really suffering from pneumonia. You might feel better for a little while, but the disease could wind up killing you.

We are witnessing the death throws of the current financial system. A new system will be born from the ashes of the old one, but there will be much suffering and pain until it happens. You need to prepare for 2012, because while the world might not end on December 21, 2012 (It better not because that's my wife's birthday), we could be facing a new financial world order in 2013.

The Financial Survival Network grew by leaps and bounds in 2011. We went from virtually no listeners to 10's of thousands in just a few short months. We are preparing for 2012 and you need to also. That means putting into place three plans: 1)A Personal Financial Survival, 2)A Physical Survival Plan and 3)A Family Survival Plan. I have committed to revising and finalizing my plans and I will be sharing them with you in 30 micro trainings on www.KerryLutz.com. 

In addition, we plan have a number of events in the second half of the year. So please sign up at <a href="www.kerrylutz.com">KerryLutz.com</a> now. They're coming out very soon along with the revamped Financial Survival Toolkit.

There are big changes ahead for the New Year. We talk about a number of emerging trends and what you need to know to deal with them.

As long as you take the proper steps and know what's in store, you'll probably make it through and wind up in a better position than where you started. The key to dealing with change as in dealing with life is Preparation!
