sdfaer"In Europe if you are an institution or a wealthy individual, your choice is to put money in the banking system. It is not very safe either and you will get zero interest rate."

ET Now: What happens to the equity markets? Do they still stand out on a relative basis as opposed to other emerging markets or do you think they can pick up strength on their own in another quarter or two?

Marc Faber : First of all I would like to say that the Indian markets started to perform well long before Mr Modi was elected. At the end of 2013 the markets already started to rise considerably and this increase in prices has continued. Last year the market was up.

There is difference between various asset classes. In the US we have essentially high valuations by any measurement. In Europe, we have lower valuations and in emerging economies we have the lowest valuations. So from a longer-

Three Hurricanes Headed Our Way

hurricane-nasa-andrew-sequenceThere are three financial hurricanes hurtling towards our country and most people are oblivious to the coming catastrophe. The time to prepare is now, not when the hurricane warnings are issued.

Hussman makes his usual solid case that stocks and bonds are as overvalued as they have ever been in the history of investing. People are under the false impression that bonds are always a safe investment. The fact that you are already getting a negative real return on bonds doesn’t seem to compute with math challenged Americans. Over the next ten years you will absolutely lose money in bonds.

Liquidity in both the stock and bond markets is thinning considerably. In bonds, quantitative easing by global central banks has resulted in a scarcity of available collateral, a collapse in repo liquidity, and increasing frequency of delivery failures, all of which is shorthand for a bond market that is becoming less liquid and more fragile to any credit event. Meanwhile, risk premiums are minuscule. Avoiding a negative total return on 10-year bonds now requires that interest rates must not rise by even one percentage point over the next three years. Bond yields have historically covered investors against a meaningful change in yields before resulting in negative total returns. On a one-year return horizon, bond yields presently cover investors for a yield change amounting to only about 0.25 standard deviations – matching mid-2012 as the lowest level of yield coverage in history.

The fragility of the economic, financial, and social systems of the U.S. is at extreme levels.

KWN-Pento-II-372015-1728x800 c.....Will U.S. Seize Gold?

Richard Russell:  "Subscribers may remember that I thought the stock market would have a melt-up before it settled into a destructive bear market. It occurs to me that the chances of a melt-up are diminishing because the market is losing its upside momentum.

Prepare For Something Worse Than 1929 – 1932

My thinking is that the market is preparing for one of the worst bear markets in history, one that will out do the 1929-32 affair.

Art, Land, or Gold

imagesThe chief executive of the world’s largest asset management corporation made comments this week that suggested gold was passé. He said gone are the days where gold acts as the de facto store of wealth. Instead, those with excess cash flow are looking to acquire condominiums in international cities or are making a bid for contemporary art; however, gold is being viewed as nothing more than a relic of the past.

Blackrock’s CEO, Larry Fink might be regarded as one of the most sought after minds in international finance. And for a man that preaches a long term view that suggests all investors remain fully invested in the stock market, as that is the asset class that boasts positive returns over the long run, he is taking a rather myopic view on gold.

The rationale for owning precious metals like gold is simple when looking to acquire and retain wealth. Governments
