It is assumed that all markets are manipulated by central banks and its also assumed that the regulators look the other way. If this is the case, then how is an investor supposed to make money and assure that his funds are safe?
The simple answer is to keep an percentage of your portfolio in precious metals such as silver and gold particular and keep it stored outside he banking system.
With so many systemic risks and counter-party risks today… This strategy just makes sense! The biggest issue I find today is that a lot of people I talk to are in what I call a frozen haze- this frozen haze means that there is so much information thrown at them everyday they become frozen to the point of paralysis and the hazed look on their face is simply mass confusion.
They know they should do something, but they don’t know what that something is. I want you to know and realize that this is why the Silver News Surfer is here. I want to be able to share the information that I have access to and give you solid “make sense” recommendations based upon your individual investment goals.
I feel that once you understand some simple facts about manipulation and counter-party risks, they will make more sense to you then you will have a more clear vision of what to do. Please trust me folks, the frozen haze approach is not the right approach – we live in a different time now.
Just a couple of reminders of just how much things have changed we only have to go back the last 12-18 months… Remember the LIBOR rate scandal, US being downgraded for the first time in history, remember MF Global’s collapse and how Corzine is still walking free, yet none of his clients who lost all their money have never seen a dime of it?
Remember other bankrupt firms such as PFG Best, Knight Capital, Barrett Capital? These firms are gone and so is all the investor funds! Can you recall more scandals then I have mentioned.. All in the financial system? The same financial system you are choosing to trust with most of your investment dollars because you are too confused about what to do! Be confused no more folks… I’m here to help you!
This is a very challenging time folks and challenging times call for challenging decisions… But it’s the lack of any decision that puts us more at risk. If you believe only one quarter of what I’ve said today then you should have at least 10% of your portfolio in precious metals… If you believe in your core the way I do that this system is rigged, then you should have 20-30% in silver & gold… Doing nothing would be your biggest mistake!
I would first like to earn your trust, then I would like to earn your business, please email me with any questions, concerns or otherwise. The only stupid question there is – is the question that is not asked!
Enjoy the weekend!
