Great news! According to Joshua Jensen a/k/a JJ the CPA, the stimulus is starting to arrive. It's amazing to think the US Government can give away hundreds of billions in such a short period of time, but they're actually doing it. Let's hope it provides a lifeline to small businesses across the country. JJ give the latest updates on all the various stimulus programs being doled out now and how you can get your piece of it. Don't be too proud or humble, even if you think you don't need it, apply for it and if things turn out great, you can always give it back. Lot's of great actionable intelligence here.

JP Morgan has stopped making business loans and they’ve tightened up their mortgage lending standards to at least a 700 credit score and 20 percent down. No doubt other banks will follow. It’s reminescent of the their move last year when they completely pulled out of the repo market overnight. Gold coincidentally rose $22 per ounce while we were speaking. Not a bad move for a monday.

John Feneck is now an unabashed gold bull. There’s good reason, with gold’s recent break past the $1700 resistance point. He’s been in the sector for decades. He’s an authority on ETF’s and fully comprehends the current composition of the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX). He believes that a metals portfolio must be balanced between majors, such as Newmont and juniors. They both offer amazing profit potential. Besides the monetary story, QE to Infinity or Death  - whichever comes first, there’s an incredible energy play as well. With energy prices at generational lows, the cost of digging an ounce of gold or silver out of the ground has plummeted. Mines are shut down all over the world, awaiting the passing of the Coronavirus. The story has never been more compelling than now. 

John began his career in 1992 as an equity analyst on the Merrill Lynch global allocation fund (MALOX). From 1993-2019, John was a senior executive for Mutual Fund and ETF providers, spending most of his career at Merrill Lynch Funds (now Blackrock) and JP Morgan Chase Funds. He was ranked #1 in both gross and net sales once at Merrill Lynch and three times at JP Morgan Chase (out of 40 senior executives.) John has conducted over 250 seminars and has been part of an investment roundtable at 4 global events. He has also been a contributor to Live Gold Prices | Gold News And Analysis | Mining News | KITCO .

RC Peck says yes. While we can't know the future, we certainly can expect cycles to repeat themselves with regularity and RC is helping to educate people so they don't see their portfolios get whip-sawed, which is what always happens during market disruptions. It happens over and over again, you zig when you should zag and zag when you should zig. RC's system could be the cure.

Jim Welsh says get ready for the market retest. Stocks have been heading higher. It’s not unusual to a substantial rally after a market crash. We’ll see how long it takes to get America back to work. What will people do after the pandemic ends? It will take longer for life to get back to normal than expected. Q1 and Q2 will show awful numbers, but the market has probably factored that in. It will also depend upon treatment options and their effectiveness.

Globalism, Leftism and the mainstream media are truly headed down the tubes. Amazing what a pandemic will do. We're no longer fixated on transgender athletes and who should be able to use what restroom. It's on to important business. The MSM's latest fake Trump news borders on the absurd. It seems that Trump and his family trusts own shares in a mutual fund that owns shares in a big pharma company that makes Hydroxychloroquin (a drug showing promising results in treating Covid 19). From that twisted bit of logic, Trump has been pushing the drug because he will profit from it. His actual indirect interest in the company is between $99 to $15,000: hardly a potential windfall. Maybe his interest is because the drug actually appears to be helpful in treating the Coronavirus. Who would have ever believed that? 

Will Joe Biden make it to the virtual Democrat convention? Steve believes that it's virtually impossible to kick Biden off the ticket at this late date. I'm betting that a bathtub accident takes him out. What do you think?

Global markets have rebounded from the massive crash that took place over the past weeks. Is it a genuine recovery or just a major SnapBack rally? Danielle, reviewing market history, believes it’s latter and not the former. We’ve seen these rebound rallies many times before and they generally peter out after around a 50 percent retracement. Let’s see if this one really is different. Perhaps with the imminent of the coronavirus pandemic, things will go back to some semblance of normal, but don’t count on it.

Argentina defaults on its debt for a change. Housing market implodes. While many of us working at home haven’t felt the full brunt of the quarantine, those who have to go to a physical job there’s risk involved. Housing isn’t the epicenter of the collapse this time, it’s more collateral damage. Houses are not a substitute for savings. Second homes will become a luxury that few can afford. Most people are used to bubble market prices and that’s about to change. And Airbnb hosts are in real trouble, no one is traveling or going on vacation. No one wants to go into a stranger’s house right now.

The private sector has stepped up to the plate. New tests, vaccines and drugs are being tested and approved very quickly. There’s been some success with Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine. Many private companies are working night and day to find treatments and vaccines. Many companies are stepping up to the plate to provide needed supplies and protective products to the public. Often the government is slowing it down or denying access to drugs in life or death situations. How are countries with Medicare for All systems working, not well in Spain and Italy. California hasn’t seen its cases explode yet. Probably because of its spread out nature and lack of mass transit.

Individuals need to be very wary of ETFs. We’re just getting a taste over what will be happening during the next decade. What started out as wonderful convenient way to invest in the market has turned into something completely different. Avi believes they should only be used as trading vehicles, not to be held long term. And when it comes to the leveraged ETFs forget about it. They’re designed to go to zero. Avi is also very bullish on silver and gold, for obvious reasons. Oil will remain in the duldrums but expect a snap-back rally. Lots more here for investors of any level of sophistication.

If you're a Small Business owner, Independent Contractor, Freelancer, Sole Proprietor - The 2020 CoronaVirus Stimulus Package could be a lifesaver! Here is the link to go and get ALL of the Resources we have put together === https://bit.ly/2Uy8LEV Make sure you get at least the $10,000 COVID-19 ECONOMIC INJURY DISASTER LOAN APPLICATION ==== https://bit.ly/39u3F0R go to this video to learn how to apply for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Application ===== https://youtu.be/YKVjDK5jHrg. Heather Havenwood (Like A Boss Podcast and Influencer Tribe) and I recorded this special briefing for you. Welcome to your emergency financial survival briefing. Please watch and share this with other people in your community and small businesses. Small businesses, really are the health and the breathing mechanism of America today. It's extremely important that we insure that as many as possible survive. There's a lot of things that got passed in the stimulus package, but much of it still isn't well known.

It wasn't just a blank check. There are different tiers for different businesses and governments. There's state, there's federal and SBA. There's literally different things. There's emergency loans, there's emergency grants. And so much so over the last what three days, Kerry you and I had been scouring the internet. You had the audacity to read the bill Cray Cray. You are, but that's who you are. So what we're doing is he's going to be going into the details of these different kinds of packages. I'm not going to call them loans because some are some art, some are grants, some are just gifts of the government. And there's a lot of um, a confusion out there. Even lawyers and accountants don't really exactly know what's going on. So we explained to you who Kerry Lutz is. So he's a financial guy now. Absolutely. That's, that's what we're here to do. I'm actually willing to having a phone call here in a couple of hours with a doctor, an MD who's got a general practice in San Antonio, and he was referred to me, but my other friend who's a doctor, he's like, please help them. You know? Um, so everyone's freaked out. And the, the challenge with all of that is that, uh, there's a lot of misinformation happening. You know, the end of the day, this, some news package just was signed on Friday, late Friday actually. information is still being brought out. As you know, Kerry I walked, went to three banks today, uh, to talk about one particular a loan program that was talked about in, in the Congress, the bill and all the bankers are like, we don't know what you're talking about. So there's just a lot of information. Our job here today is to help you as much as we possibly can. All right, so let's kind of dive in. My job is to keep a macro view on it and Kerry going to dive in a lot to the minutia. So let's start with the individuals. You know, what's in it for the individual who's not business? It is the $1,200, is that right, Kerry? Yup. Basically $1,200 if you're a married couple and you're under a certain income level, generally $75,000 each, then you'll each get 1200 and then $500 each for each dependent that's listed on your tax return. So it could be a substantial amount of money for a married couple. My partner business partner, he's got six children and a wife. So he's Yeah, small down payment. Okay. So we're quickly though on that cause something I learned last night, you and I are talking about if you, you need to make sure that you have to file your 2018 Taxes, correct? That is correct. There's no, you can't really tell whether it's going to tie it up or not, but they're going to base these payments on 2018 on your return. Heather, it wouldn't surprise me if it goes out early next week. I've never seen the government move as quickly on anything. when I was in New York and nine, 11, we had all these programs and they took months to get and and so New York might actually have an advantage here because they still have that infrastructure in place for their grants and loans that took place after nine 11. These programs can work for you. There are programs in this bill that will help you. Gig economy, financial contractors. I'm pursuing, I'm a, I'm a, I'm a consultant basically, right? I'm a one person employee. I have people that work for me, but they're all contractors. Uh, I thought for sure I'm not going to get anything. And uh, last night I, uh, along with Kerry, we filled out information to get a $10,000, what do you calls all loan? $10,000.

It seems like this crisis has been going on forever now. To think that just a few short weeks ago everything was relatively normal. And now, the economy has been stopped dead in its tracks and we're all sitting home wondering when it will be over. But the worst of the economic turmoil hasn't even hit us. The government is busy with helicopter and we're about to see the first installment. What will this mean for gold, the Dollar and fiat currencies in general? And as we stated, Joe Biden was merely a placeholder candidate who's replacement appears, for now, to be NY Governor Andy Cuomo. Just according to the script. We'll have to see when the much anticipated global reset will take place.

Was there a global overreaction to the Coronavirus. Probably yes and for good reason. Shutting down the global economy was probably not necessary, but what were the options. Deaths are increasing but they're not to the point of a mass die-off. Isn't easier to protect the most vulnerable people, then to quarantine the healthy. It will be interesting to see where we go as we move further ahead and as we learn more about the virus.

The moves in the gold market during the past month have been insane. We’ve seen a false breakout, a crash and then a false breakdown. It all comes down to where you close the period. The fact that gold rallied back to its pre-crash peak is quite encouraging. It recovered all of its losses and got back to its previous point. Therefore, that’s reason for great optimism. While the volatility has made it difficult to get a bead on the market's direction, the trend remains upward. Jordan says it could still go a bit lower, but after the retest it will likely head much much higher.

Student loan borrowers can suspend payments for 60 days without interest

Borrowers with federal student loans will be able to pause their payments for two months without interest accruing, President Donald Trump and the Education Department said Friday. The move is an effort to help those financially affected by the spread of the coronavirus. Trump had announced last week the government would waive interest on federally held loans last week, but few details had been available. The suspension will be in effect for at least 60 days, and it started on March 13. "Right now, everyone should be focused on staying safe and healthy, not worrying about their student loan balance growing," said Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in a news release. "I commend President Trump for his quick action on this issue, and I hope it provides meaningful help and peace of mind to those in need.”Colleges have gone online:In two weeks, the future of college has become uncertain, thanks to coronavirusBorrowers will have to contact their loan servicers to request the pause in payments. It's unclear how quickly those agencies will be able to respond to those requests.Those who still want to make their payments can do so. The payment in that case would be applied directly to the principal balance, which may allow some borrowers to pay off their loan more quickly. Those in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program who have to make 120 payments before their loan is forgiven may also be interested in continuing to make payments, the release said. College student loans: Debt hits a new high in 2018, though growth slows, as free tuition plans spread

The department also authorized suspension of automatic payments for borrowers more than 31 days delinquent as of March 13, or anyone who becomes 31 days delinquent.

Pausing loan payments is one of the many financial measures lawmakers have considered to ease the financial burden caused by the coronavirus. Some Senate Democrats have proposed that the Education Department be authorized to make payments on borrowers' loans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan called for a pause for three months and would give DeVos the ability to suspend payments for an additional three months on top of that.

If you’re like us you’ve been sitting around with nothing else to do other than to contemplate the global economic disaster that we’re currently enduring. Is it a deep state plot, an act of utter incompetence by our leaders or just a bunch of well intentioned pointy headed bureaucrats in over their heads? It really doesn’t matter which. This disaster has been completely mishandled from the get-go. So says noted retired critical care physician, Dr. Ted Noel, the time for quarantines was when the Coronavirus was first discovered by China. According to study, the disease could have been halted in its tracks if China had done the right, which of course they didn’t. It was a simple matter of quarantining Wuhan and the surrounding areas. Once 10’s of thousands of Chinesetravelers were allowed to leave Wuhan, the entire world became infected. The virus was out in the wild, as Dr. Noel observed. 

At that point the best thing for governments and health specialists to do, was to reverse quaranntine those in the vulnerable segment. Theh infection rate had already gone full hockey stick and there was no way to stop it. The good news, however, is that the virus is extremely suceptible to heat and humidity as numerous studies have shown. This will result in a dramatic cessation come spring and summer. 

Most people are actually immune to the virus, as high as 80 percent, as we discovered from the infection rates experienced on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. Tee actual death rate was 1 percent, likely increased by ineffective medical treatment on the ship. 

The problem in Italy and NYC is that their medical systems were socialized and therefore and inadequate to the task. An administrator gets to play G-d. His decision determines who will live and who will die.

Dr. Rana Al-Falaki --- Women’s Empowerment Expert, says that, 
"The nation’s newest New Normal is still taking shape, but the confusion and uncertainty over what lies ahead in efforts to contain the Coronavirus is escalating anxiety levels in ways that are unprecedented."

To help combat anxiety and depression around the crisis, self-care is going to be critical. This includes deep breathing, healthy eating and exercise, and most importantly – a POSTIVE MINDSET. However, none of this will be easy during a pandemic.

Amazing how there’s no data on how many people actually recover. The flu kills far more people than the Coronavirus. We’re getting information from the media that supports a narrative. There is a bright spot. The quinine based drugs appear to be effective. Why is the NHI holding back. They already have a 2005 study that shows these drugs effective against Coronaviruses. Government has been completely ineffective in its response. We need to get off our partisan stool. Government is not working for the people.
