    I strongly disagree with your –

    “However, mid year, all indexes will drop by half, setting up a 2nd half rally.”

    I think a rally will be seen in the first quarter. That will be the last chance to get out, before a relentless slide into 2010 cuts the major indices, at the very least, by 50%.

    Other than that, I think the bubble in bonds will face profit taking early in the New Year.

    And if Gold trades under $500, it will be for a nano-second creating the trade of the next several years. I’d load up in the 600’s.

    In other words, you predict a continuation of the trends seen in late 2008. Hard to argue w/that.

    Regarding the $, while I agree it should perform the crap Euro and Sterling, I look for it to continue to fall against the Yen, ultimately breaking its all time low (from the mid-90s) of about 79 (trading about 90 today). Once it breaks the low, who knows how much it might fall.

    You paint a nice portrait of a deflationary depression. However, I would just remind that if you follow the logic of a deflationary depression in the direction that you have laid out, then, one is absolutely talking about another large leg down in the valuation of assets in the banking system. There is no way the Dollar, and the Treasury issuance and monetization required to deal with that outcome, can survive.

    In a deflationary depression, there will simply not be enough economic activity to service current credit card, mortgage, and commercial loan debt. All of the good borrowers will get sucked down in that leg. The escape valve will be the USD.

    The USD is entering a tight envelope now where both successful reflation or a deepening of deflation will hurt it very badly. The USD needs a muddle through case to survive.

    Oh: you should have predicted the risk of collapse in US Treasury bond prices–I know, I know–even though many are thinking the same thing. Sometimes it’s OK to join the other observers. After all, the capital hiding in Treasuries is all price-insensitive institutional and foreign CB money.

    Anyway, I enjoyed your predictions. Better arm yourself with some Bullion (no ideology in that advice–just saying what will likely work to preserve purchasing power)

    All these predictions are just plain SILLY,
    especially Roger Weigand’s.

    ON WHAT ARE THEY BASED? Governments worldwide are pumping money into the system and USA home values are already rising.

    I predict ANYBODY with 10% down will be able to get a 4%-4.5% 30-year new mortgage; or ANYBODY will be able to get a mortgage re-fi at those same rates in 2009.

    I predict that car sales will be HIGHER in 2009 than they were in 2008.

    I predict oil will trade ABOVE $70; the DOW above 11,000 at some point in 2009.

    I predict the Government will BAIL OUT THE STATES to the tune of $200 to $300 billion,
    probably population-based BLOCK GRANTS.

    And I am ALWAYS right, as evidenced by my record right here on Ibankcoin.

Forget cars, get a bicycle, and i don’t mean cards. Collect plastic bottles, essential for flushing toilets when water works cut out. And above all, learn to make candles again, like you did in kindergarten.

    Whoo Fly, that’s some bleak shit.

    Things are fucking real bad in our propped up, debt-ridden, economy. We are at the cuss of an economic paradigm shift. When Reagan became president, we started down a (good) path of less regulation, less taxes, free(r) trade, and free(r) markets. BUT, we also allowed these new wealth creators to become distorted by jackasses with no oversight, and no risk to themselves, which ultimately lead to the disaster that we’re now dealing with.

    I hate these motherfuckers who greased their pockets at the expense of the American Way. These motherfuckers should have to give it all back … all of them! Starting with these Fuck-Asses:

    Henry Paulson
    Angelo Mozilo
    Chuck Prince

    Great predictions Fly but I think the bond bubble will start its long term price deterioration early in the coming year in anticipation of the “Helicopter Money Supply Economics” and the 2009 pseudo AAA two Trillion dollar borrowing orgy.

    It’s back to the future 1970’s time’s two or more. Unless money is real almost all country facing bankruptcy will chose to avoided depression by inflating.

    Fortunately for the unaccountable politicians most people do not understand currency devaluation.This makes it its much easier for them to avoid responsibilities,avoid paying debts in real dollars and blaming others for higher prices.No bankrupt country as borrows’ money at 0% for very long (if you know one please tell me.) This is an illusion of safety but the tie is coming down and very soon every one will realized that the emperor as no close.

    My predictions:

    – I will win the Nobel Peace Prize after inventing the “Biscuit & Gravy Diet” sending many unsuspecting fatties to a premature grave, saving billions in health care costs.

    – I will personally acquire Dynamic Materials Corp for $50M in cash, and will sell the POS to Monsanto just in time for the launch of “Clad Corn” a grain so indestructible you can eat it, pass it, and nano gift it to poor souls starving in Hanabawazastan or Detroit, your choice. As a result, I will be the keynote speaker at the 2010 TED conference. JakeGint will make $100M by brokering the transaction and getting a 1% vig on each ear of corn sold.

    – Drug addicts will replace expensive, luxury, habits with “hot, hot coffee” injections. Under my supervision, Dunkin’ Donuts will launch a philanthropic effort to start Hot Hot Coffee Clinics (HHCCs) in every US city. Bono will partner with HHCC, via his PRODUCT RED effort, to brand the coffee (RED)EYE GRAVY. I will be named an honorary member of U2.

    On a slightly more serious note:

    – Plastic surgery will become Age of Excess’ badge of shame.

    – Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. will become the hottest teen shopping destinations, with mainstream media features covering the phenomenon.

    – Two new social conscientiousness movements will take root amongst teens, but not truly felt in mainstream society for 5 – 10 years: 1) A new spiritual revival, rejecting materialism in favor of faith and its mandates for social justice, 2) A rejection of capitalism and in its stead a new American Socialism will emerge.

    – Google will acquire Twitter

    – Steve Jobs will retire

    – EMI will be bankrupted, Apple’s iTunes will acquire exclusive distribution rights to EMI’s catalog of music. Warner and Sony Music will form an alliance with Amazon to counter this.

    That is all for now.

    Here are some of the worst predictions that were made about 2008. Savor them—a crop like this doesn’t come along every year.

    1. “A very powerful and durable rally is in the works. But it may need another couple of days to lift off. Hold the fort and keep the faith!” —Richard Band, editor, Profitable Investing Letter, Mar. 27, 2008

    At the time of the prediction, the Dow Jones industrial average was at 12,300. By late December it was at 8,500.

    2. AIG (AIG) “could have huge gains in the second quarter.” —Bijan Moazami, analyst, Friedman, Billings, Ramsey, May 9, 2008

    AIG wound up losing $5 billion in that quarter and $25 billion in the next. It was taken over in September by the U.S. government, which will spend or lend $150 billion to keep it afloat.

    3. “I think this is a case where Freddie Mac (FRE) and Fannie Mae (FNM) are fundamentally sound. They’re not in danger of going under…I think they are in good shape going forward.” —Barney Frank (D-Mass.), House Financial Services Committee chairman, July 14, 2008

    Two months later, the government forced the mortgage giants into conservatorships and pledged to invest up to $100 billion in each.

    4. “The market is in the process of correcting itself.” —President George W. Bush, in a Mar. 14, 2008 speech

    For the rest of the year, the market kept correcting…and correcting…and correcting.

    5. “No! No! No! Bear Stearns is not in trouble.” —Jim Cramer, CNBC commentator, Mar. 11, 2008

    Five days later, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) took over Bear Stearns with government help, nearly wiping out shareholders.
    6. “Existing-Home Sales to Trend Up in 2008” —Headline of a National Association of Realtors press release, Dec. 9, 2007

    On Dec. 23, 2008, the group said November sales were running at an annual rate of 4.5 million—down 11% from a year earlier—in the worst housing slump since the Depression.

    7. “I think you’ll see [oil prices at] $150 a barrel by the end of the year” —T. Boone Pickens, June 20, 2008

    Oil was then around $135 a barrel. By late December it was below $40.

    8. “I expect there will be some failures. … I don’t anticipate any serious problems of that sort among the large internationally active banks that make up a very substantial part of our banking system.” —Ben Bernanke, Federal Reserve chairman, Feb. 28, 2008

    In September, Washington Mutual became the largest financial institution in U.S. history to fail. Citigroup (C) needed an even bigger rescue in November.

    9. “In today’s regulatory environment, it’s virtually impossible to violate rules.” —Bernard Madoff, money manager, Oct. 20, 2007

    About a year later, Madoff—who once headed the Nasdaq Stock Market—told investigators he had cost his investors $50 billion in an alleged Ponzi scheme.

    I never has the dishonour of viewing your pathetic dvd’s, nor would I ever waste my time.

    People like you often find themselves in front of FINRA for an on the record. Although I do not wish that upon you, it is coming. Unfortunately, mark my words.

    As for my identity:

    I am not a sociopath and have no need to self promote, in the manner that you shamefully conduct yourself. I am dutifully employed and do not make a living through promoting pink sheet stocks on the internet, for a group of hapless homos, who regularly frequent your advertisement page, I mean “blog.”

    At the end of the day, you’re just some loser trying to impress people with your idiotic strategies, while I’m simply bowling on people like you—for fun of course.

    Now fuck off.

    Only a couple of quibbles, as usual:

    GOOG will trade down to $250.

    GOOG has already traded to $250 so this is not a stretch.

    Taxes will rise, drastically.

    Does not make much sense given the rest of your scenario, unless you think Congress has suddenly grown balls.

I disclose all my positions ahead of time, outline exactly what I’m gonna do before I do it, detail my entire strategy for all to see and anticipate, hold long enough not to trade against my subscribers…if I’m forced to stop trading, then so be it, aint nobody gonna stop me giving my opinion, an opinion which has proven to be right the vast majority of the time.

    I love how you back away from your track record, pussie…typical cubicle monkey behavior, enjoy your imaginary success

    The PPT will remain an enigma, never becoming available to any of the readers of iBankCoin.

    MOS and POT will continue to yo-yo 15-25% on a bi-weekly basis, making tidy profits for traders, before falling victim to the grain/corn debacle in the 2nd half.

    Pam Anderson’s Boobs will implode.

    Entire housing tracts in the Inland Empire and Riverside County of Southern California including: Indio, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs…will be vacated due to water bills exceeding mortgage payments.

    The Fly will have a book published.

    Americans will finally realize that WIC “free money” style programs, bleeding huge amounts of cash on illegal immigration, have been terrible for the national economy and jobs, and actually demand some serious change.

    Unemployment will reach 17%

    CNBC will terminate all male anchors, replacing them with hot, young, well-educated, big-titted babes

    iBankCoin will hire Cramer to work in the Peanut Gallery.

Besides why would Sykes be posting on this blog. He’s too busy banking coin on his. While why would FLY even bother responding to Timmay.

    3. Yes I manage a small account, its a friggin test account so my subscribers can see how to and not to trade…neandertahls dont understand why I’d only trade with a small % of my assets, but then again, they, like The DipShit Fly, think the road to riches is making 20-30% managing millions annually.

    4. I’m banking $50k/month teaching the poorest of the poor how to trade…wait til u see what i make as my acocunt grows to $100k, $250k, $500k, it’ll put your shitty management fees to shame

    Tim Sykes wrote a book about his great success as a hedge fund trader (who happened to go bust).

    He now post on his own site which traffics amateurish trading products.

    Sykes has little cash – so his posts are on covestor instead of running a hedge fund since his last one went belly up.

    Both of you are fighting over the Internet about your Internet blogs. People read this site because it’s funny and entertaining amongst the mundane sites that do nothing but sell their own crap. Hopefully the PPT doesn’t cloud your original intentions- entertainment and trading ideas.

    The major difference between Fly and Tim is scalability. Fly’s money management strategy can be used with any sum of money. The only thing that stops the Fly is the size of his bank’s vault.

    Remember, fighting on blogs is like winning the Special Olympics. Even if you prevail, you’re still fucking retarded.

    I begged off issuing a forecast issue a year ago [for 2008] but feel comfortable doing one for next year 2009.
    Lets get right to it.

    Jan 2nd,
    Fly gets back to work after taking the last month off.

    AAA corporate bonds
    …Probably up in price but not radically.

    Jan 18th, Fly swears off all inverse ETF’s…AGAIN.
    Mrs Fly finds out he lost more on inverse ETF’s and hits him in the side of the head with a cast iron pan. She don’t like her future divorce settlement squandered and means business!

    Gov’t Bonds-
    This is a tough one.
    They are going to tank and are a bad long term bet IMO, but the timing of that tankage is uncertain. The FED is hell bent to do whatever it takes to get the economy moving in a direction other than South and they have stated a willingness to print up all kind of digitial money and use it to buy Govt. Bonds. [and also, get 30 yr. Mortgage interest rates down to 4.5%] to keep Treasury Bond prices high and yields low or lower.
    With such a big printing press, well oiled, they may well be able to continue to prop up bond prices and keep yields artificually low for a while. [or even make yields go lower-maybe] If one owns these, one may want to keep a firm eye on the exit for signs the bond market is going to revolt at the revulsion of what the FED is doing. But, since this will be the antithisis to a “free market”, trying to time the T-Bonds price demise ahead of time is…I’d say, impossible. [not past this year though]

    March 23rd.
    Mr Fly breaks toe kicking yet another bony old man down an elevator shaft. The injury is egregiously painful as Fly writes on the blackboard 100 times.
    Thou shalt treat others as they would wish to be treated.

    The U.S. Stock Market:
    To me, this is the side show to the main feature.
    I’d guess The Dow and S&P would be up at year end 2009 but the U.S. stock market is still the side show.
    Until proven otherwise, the U.S. market is in a secular bear market that started in 2000. It has been and will be punctuated with cyclical bull markets which are quite playable but not everlasting.
    2009 will probably see some nifty upside action at some point which will make investors feel a lot better than they did in Oct. Still, a cyclical bull in a long term bear is about the best one can hope for. Even cyclical bulls feel pretty good though.
    China Stock Market:
    Again, tough call.
    The World Bank still believes China will grow 9.1% in 2009 after 9.3% this year.
    I think the wold Bank is smoking goofy weed. .
    Growth is likely to be more like zero to plus 5% with near zero likely the first 3-6 months and then growth after that.
    Their main export markets are hurting badly and will continue to do so for 4-6 months at best before there are those first signs of recovery in them.
    Domestic consumption, while growing in importance, is not sufficient to offset this.
    Gov’t spending [and stimulative policies] will be cranked up and that will help but, with the normal delay before results show up.
    I think China is a rifelshot approach for the next year.
    Those companies who’s growth can remain very high will be big winners as their valuations got compressed like nothing I’ve ever witnessed. I’m quite sure doubles will come from this area. Those companies tied to the economy or commodities will have to slug it out for attention and favor. They will have to show their earnings can hold up reasonably well in order for the stocks to do well.
    The Big cap china stocks in FXI?. I don’t know them well enough and by now, the FXI has had a very large gain coming off it’s Oct lows. That move takes away some upside potential but like the U.S. I’d guess the FXI still ends the year higher than now. It’s not of high interest though and picking individual [China] stocks should prove far more lucrative becasuse the market did not discriminate when it took them all down. There are some real good girls the market took down and as cooler heads prevail, they should go to honors class.
    It’s hard to pick [the best] individual winners as surprises can and do occur but I will say that as of right now, stocks with the charactericts of China Sky One Medical are the kind I’m talking about. Even though CSKI has more than doubled in two months, the stock is still cheap compared to it’s growth rate and chart wise, it’s a beauty.

    April 19th.
    Cheaters catches Mr. Fly at Starbucks sharing a grande hazelnut Latte with his secret lover Jackson. Fly pays off Cheaters and Mrs Fly is none the wiser.

    Real Estate_
    Hard to make blanket statements here as there is commercial and residential real estate and they have their own dynamics.
    Residential real estate may finally find a bottom this year but I don’t have a lot to back that up with other than some faith that the Fed’s and Gov’s efforts at reflation and stabilization will start taking hold. [it’s also hard for individuals to play without buying select properties].
    I wish I knew REITS better as there has to be some great long term values in here. This is really a big area because it encompasses everything from shopping mall reits, storage building reits, warehouse reits, apartment complex reits, medical center reits and a lot more.

    Now finally we come to what is of main interest here. The BIG opportunities for 2009.

    The U.S. Dollar:
    I believe the U.S. Dollar should experience significant depreciation against gold.
    The only thing that makes me the least uneasy about this bet is that it looks so sure. I really mean that.
    How the Dollar will fare against other fiat currencies like the Yen and Euro looks less certain. It’s more a battle of the weaklings here. The fundamentals of each country or zone are not supportive of a strong currency. There is great temptation for competetive devlauations which I’ve covered in a recent email.
    From where it stands right now though, it appears the Dollar should decline against a basket of other currencies but in some respects this is like trying to pick winners and losers among the worst and near worst of football teams when they play each other.
    None of them look good compared to the #1 “currency” or monetary store of value which is gold.
    If this gold outlook seems like a boring rehash of what I’ve been liking and writing about since 2001, let one consider that gold has gone up 7 years in a row. It’s up about 5% this year so far and if it holds those gains, this makes 8 in a row.
    Almost nothing else has outperformed gold since the 2001 low. It has way more than tripled since then.
    I was not willing to committ to a statement of 2008 outperformace a year ago, but I am willing to do so for 2009.
    The Gold/Dow ratio has declined from it’s peak of 44 oz of gold to buy the Dow to now, with Fridays move up in gold, the ratio moved to just under 10 to 1. Gold at $870 and the Dow at 8,500. Just divide gold per oz into the Dow to get the ratio.
    Over the next few years [2012-2015?], that ratio should move towards my many years ago target of 5 or under. Events and responses [economic] the last few months lead me to conclude there is even a possibility the Dow Gold ratio could move to less than 1 to 1. One ounce of gold could sell for more than the Dow. I’m not saying it is a probability, but it’s odds, as a distinct possibility, have moved much higher than they were before about Sept of this year.
    A 5 to 1 Gold dow ratio has huge implications of where one would want to be invested. Should the ratio move to less than 1 to 1, it obviously would be a far different world than what we are living in now. Needless to day, the investment implications are enormous.
    Gold is not a side show for “them/me/we- [alternative investment investors]”.
    The Stock market is a side show for gold. The stock market is being strangled year by year by an ever tightening noose of a compressing Gold Dow ratio.
    A secular bull market in stocks is all but impossible in an environment where the Gold Dow ratio goes from 44 to less than 10 [as it is now] and quite possibly to well under 5. All one can get are cyclical bull markets within a long term secular bear. [unless the outcome of what is being done results in a hyperinflationary boom that takes all assets far higher in nominal terms, but not much higher in depreciated currency terms] Gold is the most pure form of money.
    It’s the standard of monetary measurement….one who’s quanity can not be inflated by the whims of man. That is quite unlike Fiat currnecies like the U.S.Dollar who’s quantity can and has been inflated far beyond that required to maintain economic growth. The U.S. Dollar has lost 95% of it’s purchasing power over the last 100 years and will continue to lose purchasing power.
    Gold supply-annual mine production is actually less now than it was at the start of the gold bull market. Gold had gone from $250 an ounce to $850 an ounce despite Central Banks selling between 400 and 500 tons a year and in all likelihood with the U.S. Gov’t leasing part of it’s gold to bullion banks who have sold it into the market.
    There is increasing interest among Mid East and Asian Govt’s to hold more of their wealth reserves in gold as diversification away from having so much concentrated in U.S. Dollar denominated assets which, in their view, look increasingly vulnerable as the U.S. goes on a “[re]inflate or die” quest to vanquish deflation.
    The Chinese only have a small reserve of 600 tons of gold and are considering adding to that to the tune of 4,000 tons over time. [all central banks hold about 29,000 tons of gold] The world looks different when one looks at gold and currencies the way I do now.
    Gold has been desireable by man for thousands of years. That will not change in our lifetimes.
    Gold has a history as a countries vital reserves of wealth-especially that backing it’s currency.
    That is true even for the Unites States. Even though the U.S. Dollar became The worlds Reserve Currency in 1981, severing it’s ties to gold backing…The Govt still holds an enormous quanity of gold [over 8,000 tons]. If the U.S. truly felt that Gold was an ancient relic, no longer useful, it would have long ago sold all of it’s gold. That has not happened. It’s a vital asset and is seen as such by almost every major country in the world.
    An ounce of gold 1,000 years ago is the same as an ounce of gold now. The only thing that changes over time is the value of fiat currencies that are measured against it. If a country has a sound fiscal and monetary policy, it’s currency holds it’s value [or even increases in value] against an ounce of gold. If a country has unsound fiscal and monetary policies, it’s currency is debased-devalued vs. that one ounce of gold.
    The U.S. has had unsound policies which has resulted in it’s currency being devalued by over 60% vs. gold since 2001.
    In the next 5-7 years it’s quite possible the U.S. dollar will go on to lose over 90% of it’s value vs. that ounce of gold.
    I’d also expect the Euro and Yen to lose value vs. an oz of gold. If fact, even the formerly favored and always strong Swiss Frank hit a new low vs gold [1 month ago], so even the Swisss Frank is no longer being seen as a sound currency.
    As previously stated, we may even get to the point where the U.S. Dollar is officially devalued vs. gold in an all out effort to jump start this deflation gripped economy and pay off debts with devalued dollars officially instead of just unofficial policy. If not official, it will be unofficial with a wink and a nod. Result will end up the same.
    I did not intend for this to end up being such a long statement about gold, but I do not think one can operate well in the investment world going forward without having this kind of base of knowledge and outlook. So much is going to be about currencies, their relation to gold, and the implications of all of it for world investors.
    The longer the U.S. Federal Reserve tries to prop up [buy with instant created Dollars] or increase Gov’t Treasury bond prices, the effect will fall on the U.S. dollars shoulders as it deprciates even faster against gold.
    Silver should also do very well in 2009 even though it’s much more the industrial precious metal. The price got depressed enough that it’s industrial use curtailment got fully discounted in it’s low price and that low price gave no benefit to it’s residual monetary value which is still present.
    Two stocks that I really like in the Silver area are Silver Standard Resources SSRI [which I used to own but have been out of for a couple of years] and Silver Wheaton SLW [which I still do own from a buy about 3 yrs ago.] Both are up about 140% from their lows two months ago but technically and chart wise, they look fantastic to me me right now. With my positive outlook for silver in 2009, I think they look good for long term gains also. My favorite of the two by a very slight edge would be SSRI. One can also buy SLV which gives one almost an ounce of silver for each share purchased.
    Buying actual silver has become a tough proposition because of the huge premiums one must pay unless taking delivery of a futures contract of 5,000 ounces each.
    Premiums have also become high for buying retail forms of gold which includes small bars and one ounce coins. Not as high as for silver but compared to pre-2008, high premiums now.
    One can go with the gold ETF symbol GLD which gives one almost 1/10th of gold for each share purchased.
    Another route is to go with an ETF of gold mining stocks like GDX. GDX got dirt cheap vs. the underlying price of gold in Oct and has rallied back very strongly with a gain of almost 100% in the avg gold mining stock since the Oct. lows.
    I still feel they are a decent value-maybe even slightly undervalued vs. the price of gold and they could be considerd as a way to play golds likely ascent. Some of the better individual gold stocks would be IMO-Barrick ABX, GoldCorp GG, Kinross KGC, Randgold GOLD, Both Gold and Silver are up about 20% off their fall lows, so the GDX ETF of big gold stocks going up nearly 100% in that same time shows how much they have been playing catch up and it shows how absurdly depressed they got relative to the gold price at the depths of the fall panic selling in almost everything.

    Aug 21st.
    The anointed one with flowing 18K gilded robes starts looking at charts and ups his gain for the year from 36% to 59% over the next 5 weeks. He feels so good, he forgets his vow and kicks yet anohter old man down the stairs. This time Fly has learned his lesson. Kick only fat old men,not bony ones.

    Crude OIL-I don’t think I’ll speculate on where crude will end up 2009. The futures say higher than where it is now and I’d go along with that but have no strong opinion and no strong urge to play it at this time. It’s actually difficult to play for a lot of reasons I won’t take the time to go into other than give one example: If you buy USO the ETF of crude oil, you are buying futures contract on crude which the ETF rolls over to new contracts when the old contracts come due. The forward futures are a lot higher priced than the current spot price [in significant contango], so holders of USO are faced with constantly eroding premiums. One could bet right on the directin of crude and end up not making much money because of the contango erosion over time.
    Playing low crude by buying EXXON or Chevron??. That seems pretty dicey as both are already trading at a price where buyers are already pricing xon and cvx. as if crude is more like $75/barrel than the current price of $40 or so.
    The grains?
    I think they will show solid gains by year end. There has already been a good recovery with corn bottoming at $3/bushel and last Friday it went over $4/bushel. I think there is still room for the big 3…soybeans, corn, and wheat to be priced higher at the end of 2009 but 2007 highs are probably not in the cards unless there is really severe weather [drought] in the big soybean or corn growing areas. [including S.America. for Soybeans- now experiencing dry weather].

    Fly chokes on a grape being fed to him by his trusty servant Seymour. Seymore performs a tracheotomy on his master with Fly’s prized Breguet Pen.
    Fly lives, but Seymore is summarily fired.
    Again.

    Copper, nickel, zinc etc…who knows? Probably some recovery but it will take solid signs of world growth resuming to get the base metal prices really moving up.
    That’s about it.
    Going to be a very interesting year.
    Above are my opinions only and you decide what is right for you. As always, do your own DD.
    Opinions and feedback, always welcome and appreciated.
    Naturally I reserve the right to change my mind on any of these opinions as circumstances unfold.
    Good luck to all of you in the New Year.
    Thanks, SC
    OH yes…How about CASH…currently THE most popular investment of them all?
    Even at zero or 1% interest rate it’s a good place to be with deflation taking the prices of many “goods” lower [in the short term] which means you get to buy more next month than you could this month [except for medical, college tuition etc].
    While one is always fortunate to have cash…the more the better [g], as an “investment”, it’s likely to be a poor choice long term.
    “Good investment” along with a Fed Statement “we will do whatever necessary” to reflate are not highly compatible phrases.
    I think eventually cash loses value through currency depreciation.
    I think cash will severely underperform gold and many other “targeted” investments like high growth companies selling at severely discounted values to their likely worth. [Some are located in China…much to your non-surpise by now]
    TIPS…Treasury Protected Securities are probably a good [buy and] place for one to be with their long term “ultra safe” money as they provide a nice return of 2 or 3% above whatever inflation turns out to be.
    Yawwwnnn.
    Finally…gold will not always be good. There will be a time where it will get overvalued vs. stocks and currencies and then it will enter another 20 year plus bear market where the Gold Dow ratio will expand greatly. That time is likely to still be far away.
    If you follow this forecast, you are likely to end up wealthy…
    and psychotic…
