NOTHING is certain or guaranteed in Markets.... ever. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a charlatan.

That said, within Bressert's Cycle framework the norm is that a new Intermediate Cycle in any asset should test or breach the Intermediate Cycle downtrend before topping and those are my expectations based on my current analysis on both Gold and the USD.

With that as background, my Gold chart shows these expectations.

2017 02 10 featured imageEducation is a BIG part of a having a Plan B… especially when it comes to money.

In light of the obvious risks that we discuss on a regular basis, safeguarding (and growing) our savings is absolutely critical.

Finance can be a little bit scary and seem quite complicated at first.

No one comes out of the womb a financial expert. And they certainly don’t teach this stuff in a government-controlled public school system.

But just like speaking a foreign language or learning to drive, knowing how to properly manage money is a SKILL.

And it’s one that can be learned. By ANYONE.

The difference between knowing versus NOT knowing how to manage money can have an EXTRAORDINARY impact on your life.

Simply being able to generate an extra 1% to 2% annual return on your investments can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra wealth over 20-30 years.

As with any other skill, learning about finance takes some time and patience. But the reward is extraordinary.

I wanted to pass along an email today that highlights key characteristics of the world’s most successful long-term investment strategy.

It was written by my friend and colleague Tim Price, a UK-based wealth manager who is a disciplined master of “value investing”.

This strategy is absolutely worth understanding. Learning it can truly have an enormous impact on your life.

— From Tim: —

Successful investing involves having an edge.

And if you do not know what your edge is, you do not have one.

So which investment strategy actually works?

wisdom-002Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. – Proverbs 19:

One thing I would like to add is that not all advice is good advice, so it’s vital to filter out the noise from the facts. One of the easiest ways is to follow, listen and learn from people who have or are walking the successful path.

Finding an edge is something that we all want.

Investing is a zero sum game so when you are buying, there is a person on the other end who is selling.

How do you know that you’re correct?

By listening to wise counsel.

The path forward is never clear, but with the advice and guidance by value investing greats, it makes is easier to march forward.

Take these words of wisdom on finding an edge from people considered masters in value investing.

(Courtesy of Value Investor Insight)

Human beings are subject to wild swings in their levels of fear, risk tolerance and greed. That won’t change. I base my whole approach on buying when others are fearful and selling when others are greedy. The reason Shakespeare is so relevant still today is that his plays were all about human nature, and human nature never changes.

A few weeks ago, we observed the single most extreme syndrome of “overvalued, overbought, overbullish” conditions we identify (see Speculative Extremes and Historically Informed Optimism) at a level on the S&P 500 4% higher than the syndrome we observed in July. The S&P 500 has climbed about 1.5% further since then, and all of the features of this syndrome remain in place.

As I noted in December, except for a set of signals in late-2013 and early-2014 (when market internals remained uniformly favorable as a result of Fed-induced yield-seeking speculation), an overextended syndrome this extreme has only emerged at the market peaks preceding the worst collapses in the past century.

The 10 Habits of Relentless Action

51b04884431d9493bb05d647641443d8“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” -– Leonardo da Vinci
Have you ever noticed how some people seem to perpetually be winning, moving forward all the time, despite the fact that they may not have gone to the "best" school, or come from the “right” circumstance, or quite frankly, even be that bright? However, those people seem to be able to attract success to them in an uncanny way, always doing things and constantly moving in the right direction.

Others seem to languish. They have the ‘right’ degrees, and seem to have all the right answers and have all the trappings of success, but they really do not seem to achieve much. It’s all talk, talk, talk! . However, look behind the veneer and it is all talk!
I believe the difference is action!

Talk is cheap, while action is priceless. The difference between these two types of people is that the talker is busy describing what he plans to do, while the action taker is busy actually doing it.

Nothing happens without action. Action is like the fuel in an engine. An engine can have lots of potential energy but can only be turned into kinetic energy and forward movement once fuel is added. Without fuel, it will sit there, looking pretty for a while but eventually, all the other cars will pass it and it will slowly rust away. Action is the fuel of everyday living.
