Simon Black – Investment bank manager: “Nobody knows what the f**k is going on…”

Financial circles in Hong Kong are buzzing today on the new Goldman Sachs projection that gold may drop below $1,000 an ounce.

And in merely suggesting such a death sentence for the metal, Goldman’s pronouncement pushed the paper price of gold contracts down $20+.

Many technical indicators underscore Goldman’s views. There’s very little floor for gold prices below $1,200, signaling that gold could gap down quickly.

Mike Maloney: $2,000 or $5,000 Gold is Absurdly Low – Gold Price Will Double the Dow

Mike Maloney of GoldSilver.com says our monetary system is doomed. Maloney contends, “It’s a 100% failure rate. No fiat currency has ever survived, now all of them are fiat. So, this shift will be the most dramatic in world monetary history. It’s going to be the world’s greatest wealth transfer in history. Therefore, it’s the greatest opportunity in history.” So, how high will gold go? Maloney says, “The more you study it, predictions of $2,000 or $5,000 gold becomes absurd. It’s absurdly low.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with precious metals expert Mike Maloney and producer of the new video series “Hidden Secrets of Money.” Share and...

The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold And Silver

This report lays out an investment thesis for gold and one for silver.  Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. My timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold (and silver) as investments are laid out in the full report.

The punch line is this: Gold and silver are not (yet) in bubble territory, and large gains remain, especially if monetary, fiscal, and fundamental supply-and-demand trends remain in play.

Robert Kiyosaki – 8 Surefire Ways to Earn Passive Income

Everyone wants to make more money, but very few want to work more hours. The best way to work less and make more money is to learn how to generate passive income. Passive income can be described as income that is received at regular intervals that does not require a lot of work to sustain it — money that you automatically make whether you work any more or not. If you want to earn more money, the following are 10 ways to make money passively in no particular order for income potential: 1. Dividend Investing Becoming a stockholder in a company is a great way of earning income with very little time involved. Buying shares in the business, you can then decide whether you wish to receive quarterly dividend checks (money earned from your investment) or to reinvest the money back into more shares. Dividend investing is easily one of the most popular sources of passive income. 2. Rental Property When you buy rental property, you can start receiving monthly income almost immediately. The work involved requires buying the property one time only. After your mortgage on the property is paid, anything left over is considered passive income. 3. Peer-to-Peer Lending, e.g., Lending Club Online you will find a wide variety of peer lending groups. When you become an investor, you are simply lending a certain amount to other members of the group who need to borrow money. With Lending Club, you can expect to earn a 9% interest on average. 4. Building Websites If you have a knack for building websites that can generate a high amount of traffic, you have a great opportunity to earn passive income. Many people find that by simply creating an information site about a topic they are passionate about, they can get high traffic and earn income by either selling the advertising space on the site or by joining an ad revenue sharing program. Website building is hands-down the most reliable way to make money online. 5. Bonds Many individuals are earning a lot of passive income by investing in bonds. These treasury bonds, also known as T-bills or T-bonds, are long-term investments. When the bonds mature or come due, you earn money on them. For example, you could purchase a $ 100 U.S. Savings Bond for $ 50, but when it comes due, you get the $ 100. 6. Writing a Book If you write a book, you can earn royalties for as long as people keep purchasing it. Many great authors receive monthly royalty checks on books they wrote twenty years prior. All you have to do is look at authors like Stephen King and Danielle...

Robert Kiyosaki – Want to Retire? Stop Chasing Returns

When you’re in the accumulation stage of life, investment returns are an important consideration for achieving various financial goals. Once you retire, however, you live on income, not investment returns. Unless you acknowledge this basic fact and change your mind-set from a return chaser to an income accumulator well before you plan to retire, you increase the risk of outliving your assets. It isn’t easy to change old habits. When we’re in our 20s, 30s, and 40s, many of the goals we plan for require accumulation of a fixed amount that will be needed on a specified future date. The fixed amount will either be used all at once, e.g., down payment on a house, or over a certain number of years, e.g., college. In either case, the required amount can be projected using an appropriate assumed inflation rate. The ability to achieve the foregoing types of goals is dependent upon three things: (a) amount of time between commitment to begin funding the goal and the future date when the targeted amount is needed, (b) rate of return needed to achieve the goal which can vary depending upon whether it’s funded by a lump sum, installment payments, or a combination of both, and (c) availability of funds required to achieve the goal. The second item, rate of return, is critical. The greater the return, the less the amount of funds required to achieve a particular financial goal. In today’s low-interest rate environment with few opportunities available to capture return from fixed-income investments such as CD’s and bonds, investors are chasing returns more than at any other time in recent history. For those of us in our 40s, 50s, and 60s who want to plan for retirement, we need to gradually shift our focus from investment returns to income. A constant flow of sustainable income that will cover our expenses is essential for minimizing the possibility of outliving our assets. Unlike asset accumulation goals that are attained with an inflated fixed amount that’s used all at once or over a defined number of years, retirement is an open-ended proposition with many unknown variables. For starters, the retirement date, itself, can be a moving target. It’s often accelerated for health and other reasons; however, it’s also deferred in many cases. Second, we’re unable to plan for the number of years we’ll spend in retirement since we don’t know when we’re going to die. Finally, more so than at any other time in our lives, we need to acknowledge, and plan for, the potential for sizable one-time and continuing health-related expenses, with the likelihood of occurrence increasing at the end of our...

Robert Kiyosaki – 4 Reasons Why I Don’t Use A Mortgage Broker

I can see the benefits of using a mortgage broker; buying a home is stressful enough without having to worry about visiting multiple lenders and trying to understand the different rates, terms and conditions of your mortgage. If the mortgage broker is doing their job, they will find you the best rate and terms according to your needs. That all sounds pretty good, so why aren’t more people using a mortgage broker when they buy a house?  Let me share 4 reasons why I don’t use a mortgage broker, and probably never will: 1. They Push the 5-Year Fixed Rate Most of the mortgage broker ads I’ve seen claim you will save money using their services because they can locate the lowest 5-year fixed rates in the market.  The problem is, home owners would have been better off opting for the variable rate instead of the 5-year fixed rate nearly 90 percent of the time. Using a mortgage broker to obtain the lowest 5-year fixed rate likely ensures that you will be worse off financially in 5 years while your broker and your lender make money. 2. I Had a Good Relationship With My Bank Even though I recently became fed up with my full service bank and switched to no fee banking, I actually had a pretty good relationship with my bank.  Walking into my branch and asking about mortgage rates was not an intimidating process for me as a first-time home buyer. Now that I’ve moved into my 3rd home and gone through several mortgage renewals and a mortgage refinancing I’ve received plenty of perks for staying with one lender, including waiving home appraisal fees and interest penalties.  And my variable interest rate mortgage has always been within 0.10% of the best available rate in the market. 3. Bad Reputation My first impression of a mortgage broker was not at all positive.  They send out flyer’s in the mail encouraging people to refinance and use the money to take a vacation, buy a new car, or increase their amortization and consolidate debt.  They post rates on their website claiming their mortgage rates are more than 2.00% lower than the big 5 bank rates, even though they are clearly displaying the banks’ posted rates and not the best available rate online. Mortgage brokers are also quick to spread fear over pending interest rate hikes while strongly encouraging home owners that they need to “lock-in” now.  Much like mutual fund sales people, mortgage brokers get paid (or get paid more) if you buy a particular product.  Yes, their services are free to you, but you need to understand how they are being compensated for your business. 4. Do It...
