Take a Moment Because This is Incredible

MC horz cropped - 2013Two years ago Martin Armstrong’s Computer Model predicted the Trump Presidential win and the Brexit vote. In 2013 at the World Outlook Financial Conference, Martin gave the date in February, 2014 for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This year Marty’s model predicted the independence vote in Catalonia - but that wasn’t the one that blew me away.

In September, I asked Marty about Bitcoin. He told me it was tough to get a read because of the lack of historical trading data and volume numbers. With that in mind, he said the short-term chart looked like the uptrend could carry much further than most people expected but – and it was a big BUT – his computer model was forecasting a top starting the week of December 18. (The actual peak was December 17th and 18th.)  

I don’t know why I was surprised. I’ve been following Marty’s model since 1983 and in that time it has accurately predicted so many major events from the date of the fall of the Berlin Wall to the top of the Nikkei Index in 1989.

I could go on but allow me to share one more story. Forgive me if you’ve heard me tell it before but it’s worth repeating. The first time I saw the documentary about Marty - The Forecaster – in 2014 I was shocked to see a slide from our 1998 World Outlook Conference in one of the scenes.

The slide read:

  • 1998 Collapse of Russia
  • 1999 Low in oil and gold
  • 2000 technology collapse (like railroads in 1907)
  • 2002 Bottom US share market
  • 2007 Real Estate Bubble – Oil hits $100
  • 2009 Start of Sovereign Debt Crisis
  • 2011 – 2015 Japan Economic Decline
  • Euro begins to crack due to debt crisis
  • 2015.75 – Sovereign Debt Big Bang

There it was…all of it happened…absolutely amazing – so maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised with the Bitcoin call.    

So What Now

Regular attendees of the World Outlook Financial Conference heard Marty’s forecast in 2013 that the Dow Jones was on its way to 18,000 and once breaking that barrier would hit 23,700, which it did this year. And when it broke through that number – another major move to the upside would take place.   In November, in anticipation of the speed of which the markets are moving, Marty published a new report called How To Trade A Vertical Market... obviously great timing given the Dow just added the fastest 1000 points in history.  But for how long and how far?

We’ll get the answer this year as Marty’s model has already predicted that 2018 will feature a Panic Cycle, which could come shortly after the World Outlook Conference. More importantly The Panic Cycle will feature major moves in both directions depending on the specific market. As Marty says, Panic Cycles are notorious for trapping people on the wrong side of the market, so obviously it’s essential to be on the right side in order to protect yourself and profit from what’s coming.

Adding to the volatility is that Marty forecasts 2018 as the beginning of the Monetary Crisis Cycle, which impacts every market.

We’re already seeing it in the weakness of the US dollar and the accompanying strength of the euro and to a lesser extent the loonie. But is the US dollar weakness an opportunity to buy? Conversely is the euro strength an opportunity to play it to go down? Get those questions right and you can make a lot of money.  

Marty’s Summation

This is going to be a crazy year that seems to be divided into two trends in many markets but not all.”  And by the way, he is responding to a ton of requests, including one from me, and he is producing a special report on Canada that will be available at the Outlook Conference.

Marty will be with me Friday night, February 2nd and again on Saturday afternoon, February 3rd.   We’ll cover stocks, gold, interest rates, the bond market, currencies and oil.

It’s an incredible opportunity to hear who I consider the top forecaster in the world.

One More Question:  Why Does He Do It

Armstrong Economics is in demand throughout the world. They advise on literally trillions of dollars worth of investments. The Wall Street Journal called him the highest paid financial advisor in the world.  So why does he find the time for us no matter where he is in the world?

Simply put, there are two reasons. First off, we’ve been friends for over 35 years and he has always been generous with his time and support. And secondly, he has a major commitment to helping individuals, (especially our children who are inheriting this financial mess), navigate through these increasingly volatile and chaotic times.

I hope you to take advantage of the opportunity. If you already have your ticket great! Tell a friend, tell a family member too!

Sincerely,

Mike

Why Tech is Targeting the $15 Billion Mattress Market

On the surface, the sleep industry appears to be a relatively undesirable space for a startup.

Beds and mattresses are heavy and bulky, and sales are traditionally based on a tactile experience that consumers have with products in physical stores. Holding inventory is expensive and risky, and shipping is a nightmare.

Sure, people are willing to shop online for almost everything these days – but when up to 40% of life is spent lying on a bed, isn’t that a product that should be tested out before a purchase decision is made?

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

Despite the conventional wisdom to the contrary, the $15 billion mattress industry has seen the entrance of several ambitious startup companies, and they are starting to put a dent in market share.

Today’s infographic from Online Mattress Review tells the story of how disruption is occurring in this unlikely space – and it all starts with big changes to the business model to make online mattress sales more palatable for both the company and the consumers.

AN UPDATED MODEL

Here are a few key ways online mattress companies, like Casper or Purple, have changed up their value proposition to customers to make life easier for themselves:

Money-back guarantee
By offering a money-back guarantee of up to 100 days, online mattress companies give customers plenty of time to test their product. This reduces the chance of buyer’s remorse.

Going all-in on memory foam
Memory foam, as well as other mattress types that can be compressed down in size, allow for fast and easy shipping. Consumers can take a box the size of a filing cabinet and easily navigate it around corners and doorframes in a household setting.

Fun, relationship-based marketing
To appeal to the millennial market, Casper has taken on some quirky initiatives, such as creating Insomniabot-3000 (a chatbot for people who can’t sleep), and a Labor Day Mattress “Sail” boat cruise.

COMFORTABLE GROWTH

In 2016, the market share for online mattress sales was 5%, and it’s expected that the number for 2017 could be at least double that.

While tech startups and the sleep industry may seem like strange bedfellows at first, it’s clear that consumers are embracing the chance to get in bed with the idea.

....World Debt Is Rising Nearly Three Times As Fast As Total Global Wealth

Some nasty dark clouds are forming on the financial horizon as total world debt is increasing nearly three times as fast as total global wealth.   But, that’s okay because no one cares about the debt, only the assets matter nowadays.  You see, as long as debts are someone else’s problem, we can add as much debt as we like… or so the market believes.

Now, you don’t have to take my word for it that the market only focuses on the assets, this comes straight from the top echelons of the financial world.  According to Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report 2017, total global wealth increased to a new record of $280 trillion in 2017.  Here is Credit Suisse’s summary of the Global Wealth 2017: The Year In Review:

According to the eighth edition of the Global Wealth Report, in the year to mid-2017,total global wealth rose at a rate of 6.4%, the fastest pace since 2012 and reached USD 280 trillion, a gain of USD 16.7 trillion. This reflected widespread gains in equity markets matched by similar rises in non-financial assets, which moved above the pre-crisis year 2007’s level for the first time this year. Wealth growth also outpaced population growth, so that global mean wealth per adult grew by 4.9% and reached a new record high of USD 56,540 per adult.

Total-Global-Wealth-chart

This year’s report focuses in on Millennials and their wealth accumulation prospects. Overall the data point to a “Millennial disadvantage”, comprising among others tighter mortgage rules, growing house prices, increased income inequality and lower income mobility, which holds back wealth accumulation by young workers and savers in many countries. However, bright spots remain, with a recent upsurge in the number of Forbes billionaires below the age of 30 and a more positive picture in China and other emerging markets.

There are a few items in the Credit Suisse’s summary above that I would like to discuss.  First, how did the world increase its global wealth at a rate of 6.4% in 2017 when world oil demand only increased 1.6%??
