Those are great results but that’s the whole point of inviting some of the top analysts in the English speaking world to the World Outlook Financial Conference for the past 29 years. Obviously past performance is not a guarantee of future success but the results we have achieved over the years have not been by accident. Our analysts have been chosen precisely because they have strong track records.
No, they are not right every time, but their uncanny ability to read the various investment markets while employing proven risk management techniques has clearly raised their probability of success dramatically. Whether you’re interested in stocks, gold, oil, real estate, interest rates or currencies - we bring in the top analysts to the World Outlook Financial Conference to cover them all.
It’s an incredible line-up for Feb 2nd & 3rd, 2018. Martin Armstrong has been called the highest paid financial advisor on the planet. Heck, I’ve called him the top economic forecaster in the world. Let me give you just a couple of examples. At the Outlook in 2013 he correctly predicted the date of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the accompanying massive outflow of capital that would push the US dollar and stocks higher. More importantly he clearly predicted the rise of the Dow Jones Index through 18,000 and told the audience to buy every dip because the next stop was 23,700. We came within a quarter of a percent of his target this month so I can’t wait to hear what he has to say now.
Mark Leibovit will also be at the 2018 Outlook. Mark has been Timer’s Digest Timer of the Year, Gold Market Timer of the Year and Long Term Timer of the year. While he’s been great in all those areas – my favourite of his forecasts came at the 2014 Conference where he told us to start to invest in marijuana stocks starting with GW Pharmaceuticals at $67. Mark has repeated his recommendation of the marijuana industry every year. I think it’s safe to say that was a good call but I’ll be interested in what he has to say this year as the industry and the stocks become more mainstream.
I won’t go through all the 2018 speakers right now (they’re available HERE) but let me give you just one more example of the quality of analyst featured at the World Outlook Conference. Keystone Financial’s Ryan Irvine has been producing a World Outlook Small Cap Portfolio for the past 8 years – and as I said past performance is no guarantee of future success but I like my chances. The Small Cap Portfolio has returned double digits every single year – no exceptions.
Obviously I want to hear Ryan’s picks at this year’s conference. I’m worried it will cost me too much money if I don’t!
What Will Happen in 2018
The easiest prediction is that the rate of change will continue to increase, which will produce big price swings in a variety of investments.
Goldman Sachs just predicted four more interest rate hikes in the States in 2018. If they’re right, it will have a huge impact on the US dollar. The loonie will go down as a result unless the Bank of Canada raises our rates with them. And if they do what will be the impact on real estate and Canadian stocks?
Currency moves are going to provide a huge opportunity for those who position themselves properly. I'm pleased to say that the currency recommendations at the Outlook Conference have made a lot of people money but I think 2018 will be an even bigger year.
I continue to be most worried about the government bond market. If rates rise, bonds will certainly go down, which is why I’ve been telling people to get rid of government bonds with maturities of 3 years and longer. At the 2018 Outlook we’ll talk a lot more about the vulnerability of government bonds.
The Pension crisis in Europe and the States will also be a big story in 2018 with major financial implications, as well as social and political ones. We’ll talk more about how to position yourself to both protect and profit from the pension problems.
The Bottom Line
The level of volatility and the violence of the moves in all markets necessitates taking advantage of the best possible research and analysis available. While financial programs and conferences often feature cheerleaders for a variety of products or industries, we focus on top flight independent analysis. The bottom line is that I am confident that our analysts can make you back the price of admission many times over.
Periods of historic change provide incredible opportunities and incredible danger.
At the 2018 World Outlook Financial Conference and on MoneyTalks, I’m trying to help you avoid the danger and take advantage of the opportunities.
I hope to see you there.
