GM announced positive earning reports while deciding to shutter 5 US assembly plants, discontinue car production and offshore more manufacturing to Mexico. Is that really winning? It's a trend that's been in place for nearly 40 years, but Jeff is hopeful that the new USMCA deal will help raise wages and competitiveness of the US economy. Things are starting to heat up in China and the question is whether compromise will lead to an agreement. Right now it's anyone's guess. Trade is a evolving issue.

It's no secret that Justice Ginsberg has had her share of medical challenges. And having been witness to many people who've suffered similar fates, we're extremely sympathetic to what she's going through. But she has no business still being on the High Court. She's been fading for many years and has become a mythical figure. How much longer can she continue on down this path? Probably not much, which is why she should be allowed to enjoy a quiet retirement and not expected to be the torch carrier against a republican dominated court. More on gold prices,

What about the government shutdown and do we need a TSA? And what is a non-essential government worker? Surely one we can do without. And the dirty secret is that once the government reopens, they'll get all their back pay, even if they were furloughed.

Noted credit expert Robert Siciliano joined us today. The good news is that all 4 credit bureaus must provide now allow consumer's to freeze their reports upon demand. The bad news is that there are now 4 credit bureaus and most people don't take advantage of this security measure anyway. You need to shred all your mail and let your password manager assign your passwords. Allow for push notifications on all your credit cards. This will enable you to pick up on any fraudulent use in near real time. This can help keep you safe. But there's so much more to data hacking and illicit data sales. You can only do so much and then it's up to the government and fate.

JOB GROWTH SURGES BY 312,000 IN DECEMBER Job creation ended 2018 on a powerful note, with non-farm payrolls surging by 312,000 in December though the unemployment rate rose to 3.9 percent. The jobless rate, which was last higher in June, rose for the right reason as 419,000 new workers entered the workforce and the labor force participation rate increased to 63.1 percent. The participation level was up 0.2 percentage points from November and 0.4 percentage points compared with a year earlier. A broader measure of unemployment that includes discouraged workers and those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons held steady at 7.6 percent. In addition to the big job gains, wages jumped 3.2 percent from a year ago and 0.4 percent over the previous month. The year-over-year increase is tied with October for the best since April 2009. The average work week rose 0.1 hour to 34.5 hours. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting job growth of just 176,000, though they projected the unemployment rate to fall to 3.6 percent. The wage number also was well above expectations of 3 percent on the year and 0.3 percent from November. The report, released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, comes amid concern over whether the U.S. economy is part of a global deceleration, despite turning in its best year since the Great Recession. Is it real or are we headed to a recession? Keep your eye on the real numbers.

Real estate has seen quite a rise during the current cycle. However, our economic world is complicated; everything is \connected. While the stock market has been taking its lumps, what will be the effect on real estate? Danielle believes that it's going to come down as well, for a number of reasons. Obviously the wealth effect brought on by rising stock prices can act in reverse. There's also the necessity of many investors to liquidate their holdings, both due to demographic reasons and the need to pay debts and cover losses. Any way you slice it, real estate is probably going down.

2019 is beginning to look a lot like 2010. Economic growth will be hard to find. Metals should start going up smartly later in the year. The Fed will be buying all the debt that's being produced. People will realize that there's no plan and that there's no turning back. No going back to normal. The past 4-5 years were a time of relative economic tranquility, but that's over. Calling in the Plunge Protection Team because the market dropped 20% was the tip-off according to Craig. De-dollarization continues unabated which will lead to declines in the USD.

David Moadel is the Chief Analyst and Opportunity Researcher for David discusses why the next 10 years is going to be a lot different than the last decade and you need to be prepared. Real estate, gold and cannabis are his three main themes. 

David’s journey from newbie to influencer began as a teenager, when his father first began teaching him fundamental, time-tested principles in the vein of Graham, Buffett, Munger, and Bogle. Being young and doing what teenagers are known for doing, David tried doing things his own way at first – with disastrous results, as you might expect.

Finally, ready to accept and adopt his father’s strategy of building wealth over time, David became success in this. David soon began teaching these principles to others on an informal basis: friends, family members, and just about anyone who would listen. It soon became apparent that David was a natural-born educator with a talent for breaking complex concepts down and make them accessible to learners of all backgrounds.

Throughout the years David has devoted himself to the teaching field: he has earned a master’s degree in education and Florida teaching certification, and has taught at the elementary, high school and college levels. Having taught fifth-graders for years, David earned a reputation as a devoted educator who truly cares about his students.

While teaching in the public school system, David noticed that while the students were forced to learn chemistry and trigonometry, no allowances were made in the school day for any sort of basic financial education. As a result, these students were growing up with no foundation, destined to make poor financial choices. David decided to dedicate his time and efforts to making much-needed financial education available to the public.

David’s down-to-earth and patient instructional style made him an instant hit on YouTube and other social platforms, and in his role with Portfolio Wealth Global, David is now able to pass his father’s investing wisdom on to investors all over the world. With this solid foundation – updated with modern strategies for an ever-changing marketplace – David is proud to serve the investing community with strategies to build wealth for a lifetime.

Like the much vaunted butterfly affect, so too with financial markets and debt. We go merrily along out way thinking everything is fine, only to discover that we were wrong. While we totally mis-called the market from 2011 to late last year, eventually the chickens come home to roost. And then Apple has a major miss and the market can't stop going down. But wait, the next day everything is fine and the market goes way up. There's something happening here, but what?

If the purpose of a market is price discovery then clearly there's something major wrong with what passes for markets today. Numerous times throughout the day, questionable series of transactions take place which leads markets heading in a direction that is favorable to the powers that be. When will markets begin to serve their primary function? And what about those yellow vests in France, why have their protests been completely ignored by the lame stream media? Obviously things are not nearly what they appear. And old man debt just keeps rolling along.

It's easy to get depressed and anxious when you see the value of your investments go down daily. However, you need to find perspective. Dr. Huber suggests a vigorous exercise regimen to help you manage the stress. Perhaps seeing someone can help you deal with it. But don't go out on ledge thinking it will solve anything. A study of unsuccessful jumpers off the Golden Gate Bridge, found that all of them believed they could handle any life situation once they experienced a jump. Seems that it's an excellent way of putting things in perspective.

It's been a long wait but Bob Hoye turned bullish on gold in November. According to economic historian Bob, it's merely following the path that it's followed many times in the past. He still believes that the dollar will continue to be the best looking cow in the slaughter house. A lot of people went into the market as pigs and are going to come out as sausages.

Daniel Greenfield believes that the problem with Millennials is that they just won't grow up. They're leaving the home later, marrying later and have children even later than any generation before it. That's why they're so attracted to an attractive moron like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Adds credence to never trusting anyone with a hyphen in the last name. But grow up they must and the crash will help them do that just fine. Get ready for the Millennials to grow up really fast. And watch what happens when they try to impeach President Trump. It's the Dems Obamacare.

There have been warnings for decades and now it's finally coming to pass. Pretty soon, interest on the public debt will become the largest line item on the federal budget. It's going to slow down economic growth and require dramatic restructuring of your government and the services it provides. Jeff is looking forward to limited or no growth for 2019. After that it's anyone's guess. But the future looks bleak.

Noted federal employment lawyer Jonathan Bell explains that regardless of what we may think of federal employees, they're people and they will suffer from the shutdown. Now there's a lawsuit that's been brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act to aid them. The law, which may cover federal government employees provides that employees cannot be forced to work in the absence of being paid a salary. Will it work? That remains to be seen.
