Being speechless today, here are the top headlines…

Precious Metals Complex Flashing Buy Signal – It looks like gold and silver stocks bottomed on Monday, April 21, and that gold and silver also bottomed this week.

Really? The usual reaction is, “the stocks have been hammered, gold is off over 30% from its highs, and silver is down nearly 60%. Sentiment is low, few people are interested, and gold and silver will probably crash again in a few weeks.”

We have been conditioned to expect lower prices in spite of:

  • Massive demand for gold from the Chinese Central Bank
  • Massive demand for gold and silver from the public in both China and India
  • Reduced supply from mining
  • Increasing public demand for both gold and silver in the US and Europe
  • Increasing realization that paper currencies will inevitably be devalued more each year. “Inflate or die” is the central bank mantra.
  • Weakening US dollar and increasing shift away from the dollar by China, Russia, Iran, India, Brazil, and other countries.

And don’t forget that central banks everywhere are openly and excessively printing their paper currencies to encourage inflation, politicians are fomenting wars, and the global monetary system is more and more unstable every day.

Accidents can happen, and those accidents will justifiably encourage people to shift assets to something solid and real – like gold and silver. But, you have heard it all before.

These Are The Top Financial Concerns Of Ordinary Americans – While institutional investors and money managers have a very specific list of worries when it comes to their “financial concerns” such as Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO), monthly/quarterly performance and redemption requests, losing top traders, what the year end bonus will be, order fill slippage, being front-run by HFT algos, what the Fed chairwoman may say any given day, whether it is 3:30pm or if it is a Tuesday, ordinary Americans have a far simpler list of concerns.

According to a recent Gallup poll, the one thing that has most Americans very/moderately worried is “whether or not they have enough money for retirement.”

Putin Is About To Unleash Terror On The West – The United States is already going after Putin pretty hard with sanctions, and now they are rumored to be looking into his personal finances and trying to find out where his stash of billions is held in the West.  At some point Putin is going to have to respond because he can fight back economically.

I would say from that measurement alone that Russia seems to be in infinitely better shape than the United States.  The Russians also have a massive trade surplus as well as a comfortable current account surplus, but the U.S. has remained in deficit on both of them for as long as I can remember.

So, the fact that the Russian debt has been downgraded to just above junk, what does that say about U.S. debt?  Nobody in the West talks about this.  But there is one way that Putin can strike back, and I’m going to give you a little history lesson here:

Russia hit by more sanctions – Major oil companies with interests in Russia scrambled Monday to respond to new U.S. sanctions against Russia, as the United States on Monday imposed measures against seven Russian government officials and 17 companies linked to President Vladimir Putin in its latest action to punish Moscow for its intervention in Ukraine.

An Open Letter To Silver: Listen, Silver: We Need to Talk – From Casey Research:

Dear Silver, Happy anniversary. It was on April 25, 2011 that you hit $49.80 per ounce in the New York spot market. Today, three years later, you sell for around $20, nearly 60% less.

Is your bear market almost over—or are these low prices here to stay? Your price has lagged gold this year, so your normal volatility is lacking. How much longer will you be stuck? Read Silver’s Answer:

The World’s Most Undervalued Asset – Ted Butler: First off, it is pretty audacious to label any investment asset as the world’s cheapest when you consider the implications of that claim. Most of the world’s investors are value oriented, always on the prowl to find undervaluation and if they could identify the single most undervalued investment opportunity, it would only be a matter of time before they descended upon it.

Simply put, if you could identify the most undervalued investment asset in the world that would be another way of saying you had identified the world’s best investment opportunity.

Fed taper to cause ‘severe recession – The Federal Reserve’s move to eliminate its monthly asset purchasing program will cause a “collapse in asset prices and a severe recession,” according to economist Michael Pento.

It will be all part of the end of the so-called wealth effect touted by former central bank Chairman Ben Bernanke, who asserted that rising asset prices in the stock market and elsewhere would help boost confidence and generate economic activity, Pento charged in a blog post Monday.

Market Turning Points – I have presented a case for the formation of an important market top in the DJIA.  At this time, it is a possibility which borders on probability, but which is by no means certain until it has been proven correct by the market itself.

The good news is that we should know quickly whether or not this is a valid interpretation of the market’s position.  Early May is a time to be especially alert for the verification of the scenario presented above.

Excuse me please… May I have your attention?

Stop getting so darn emotional about your investments. We are not asking you to buy stocks at all time highs here folks and we’re not asking you to buy US dollars either –

We’re saying to take those weak dollars in the midst of rising prices everywhere and 4 year lows in precious metals prices and exchange the dollars for the real money… gold and silver – It’s only been proven for 5,000 years. What’s there to get emotional about?

The high cost of emotional investing – The best investors have a well-thought-out, disciplined investment process and only succeed when sticking to, and making decisions based on, their process.

The investor who attempts to time the market—or index, rather—is most likely guided by emotion. Attempting to time the index fund without a well-thought-out process can lead to dismal returns and loathsome regret. In most cases, it would benefit this type of investor to seek the guidance of an investment advisor.

Silver $50: Three Years After the Shortage there is a “Brand New “Smart Money” Now Betting On Gold & Silver Sector – Why you ask? Well when Renowned money manager Felix Zulauf warned King World News that the world monetary system is going to collapse I would assume that some people are heeding his warning!

Are ‘dollar bugs’ insane? Blind? – Gold (and silver) have been considered valuable assets and a protector of wealth for 5,000 or so years. Forget what you think about it today or why you hold these views, this is history talking to us.

For whatever reason(s), countless millions of people through time have clearly shown that, to them, gold and silver are either “real money” or a good “thing” to hold onto. To me, it’s always unwise to ignore perceptions and realities that have clearly stood “the test of time.”

Maybe you think a gold bar is no different than a dumbbell, but people from multiple societies through multiple centuries have shown they think otherwise. And are still showing they think otherwise. To dismiss gold (and silver) as a “barbarous relic” is to dismiss ages of collective wisdom.

It’s a free country (well, maybe) and people can accept or reject any notion they choose, but these people (in my view anyway) should at least acknowledge that their opinion is not shared by, say, billions of people.

Make fun of me if you will, but I trust gold a lot more than I trust the people who print paper dollars.

Traders Bet Silver Streak to End With Gold on Inflation While silver has wiped out almost all of a 15 percent gain through the first two months of the year, the cost of bullish contracts on an exchange-traded fund tracking the commodity has climbed to a three-year high relative to bearish ones. Traders are betting prices will rise with gold amid quickening inflation, a return of overseas demand and as the conflict in Ukraine continues.

Silver is a precious metal, but it’s also an industrial metal and it’s taken a real punch in the face in the past few months,” Mark Sebastian, director of trading and investments at Swan Wealth Advisors Inc., said by phone from Chicago. His firm manages about $1 billion. “You’re probably seeing some pressure on puts and a bid on calls because the metal’s cheap.

Approaching Indian Festival May Help Put Floor Under Gold Market – Gold demand is picking up in India ahead of a key festival and should help curb any further weakness in international prices, said analysts with several consultancies.

Nevertheless, observers say the festival itself likely won’t be enough to spark a sharp rally considering the continuing restrictions on gold imports into India and recently lukewarm Chinese demand. However, analysts do look for an eventual relaxation of the onerous Indian import rules, which should then help consumption, although they do not see this occurring until sometime after spring elections.

The Akshaya Tritiya festival occurs in India on May 2. Additionally, May is considered one of the two “wedding seasons” in the country.

“That is typically a strong buying period in India,” said Rohit Savant, senior commodity analyst with CPM Group. This is significant for the market since India historically has been one of the world’s largest consumers and until last year was the No. 1 gold buyer in the world, before being overtaken by China.

World War III on the Horizon? – Russia and China are becoming closer thanks to Obama and his insane policies behind the NSA that have left America trying to find friends in a dark hour. The sanctions being imposed on Russia have sent China into its camp. The USA is finding it increasingly more difficult to be the bully in the school-yard. No former administration has ever acted with such arrogance and blind stupidity than the Obama Administration.

The net result is to empower Russia and to inspire a new dynamic-duo of Russia-China against the USA. China supported Russia, when Western countries launched an anti-Russian campaign. With both of their economies turning down, this is by no means the proper time to impose sanctions. All this policy is doing is re-enforcing Putin and placing him in the position where he must become more aggressive or seem weak in the shadow of Obama.

Now onto the breaking news that matters…

 

This Will Cause A Massive & Historic Spike In Gold & Silver – What is going to cause this massive spike, among other things, is a lack of gold.  I think what is first going to happen is that it will be very difficult to get hold of physical metal.  Last year the Chinese purchased almost the entire annual global gold production, and that is just one country.  And the Chinese are continuing to purchase at that massive rate.

But we also see the Russians, Thais, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, etc., are all buying gold.  We are talking about all manner of countries in the East.  But we are not seeing anything like that happening in the West.  When was the last time the United States added to their gold reserves?  I don’t think that has happened during the lifetimes of most people who are alive today.

But getting back to what will cause this massive spike, I think physical gold is going to be extremely difficult to source because there will be a run on physical gold.  Most of it has gone to the East, to India, China, and the other Asian countries, and the coffers in the West have been severely depleted.  So when people around the world finally realize there is a lack of available physical gold, the upside move promises to be historic.

Now onto protecting your wealth…

Here are 4 easy steps you can take to find piece of mind in the turbulent & volatile times ahead…

1. Don’t lose sight of your investment time-frame.  You’ve heard it time and time again but some of your portfolio is for long-term investment.  So, don’t let the current gyrations in any market cause you to make drastic changes to money you won’t need for 10, 15 or 20 years.   If you don’t need your money for 5 to 10 years stop worrying about it, don’t lose sleep tonight about the level of your investments 10-20 years from now.

Remember about 10 years ago, some of us said “I want to have a million dollars and then I’ll retire?” Well, the bad news is that with costs continually rising and the value of our dollar continually falling even $1M may not be enough for retirement and this is why I stress the immense importance to preserving your purchasing power TODAY with gold, silver and color diamonds!

2. Every financial crisis feels like the end of the world while we are in it.  If you were to look at the headlines during any one of the past financial downturns you couldn’t differentiate them from today. Every time we go through a financial crisis whether it’s the savings and loan crisis in the 80’s or the dot.com crisis or even the most recent mortgage crisis, the message is the same…

This time it’s different, things will never be the same, the sky is falling and so forth.   Everything isn’t rosy, but we will recover from this.  We need to avoid making decisions based on emotion and fear.  The media is in the business to sell papers or increase viewers.  They are going to sensationalize our economic situation. Good news does not provide high ratings.

Take a deep breath, hug your kids, love your wife, walk your dog, live your life and stay the course – this too shall pass. Now, from time to time it may be necessary to adjust your portfolio depending on the market financial conditions, such as the current state of affairs with the value of our dollar and the inflationary pressures we feel on Main St. Look, Investors Must Know How We Got Here And Where We Are Going we’re not all as dumb as the banksters think we are… are we? (BTW, You should really click the link above and read it)

3. Don’t pass up a twice in a lifetime opportunity to invest in precious metals at exceptionally low values. (The first was in 2010-2011) Sure it has been exceptionally painful to watch the metals portion of our portfolios drop by 40% or so since 2011, but what a great opportunity we have today. What else can you buy today for $20.00 that has and will continue to have value?

If you have a long time horizon now is a great time to invest in the precious metals.  I encourage you to invest a set amount of money (into silver for example) every month using a dollar cost averaging, therefore, you won’t have the emotion factors of greed or fear.

Now is the time to invest, (at or near these low’s) not to sit on the sidelines. It is always darkest before the dawn.  Remember, the metals market is counter-intuitive – you feel like selling when you should be buying and you feel like buying when you should be selling.  Therefore, right now we should be buying!!!   When you feel it is safe to buy again it will be too late.

4. Choose your battles and focus on what you can control.  You can’t control the fluctuations in the stock market or where that market is headed for example (although we all know its at an all time high and we are approaching the month of May).

However, you can better prepare yourself for a weak economy or another massive down turn in the financial system. Today, as I’ve noted here, its increasingly important to have a set portion of your portfolio (somewhere around 20% of your working portfolio) in precious metals and have it stored in your possession… PERIOD!

As for the Silver News Surfer, It would be a great honor to work with you, earning your trust, then earning your business – Isn’t that how relationships should start?

With the news coming at us faster than we can keep up, I wanted to help you get prepared for the “what ifs” that life throws at us….

The recent fires around the world remind us how crucial it is to plan for unexpected financial misfortunes.  An important part of financial planning is ensuring you are adequately protected from life’s calamities.  You can’t control what life throws at you, but you can ease the blow by being prepared and keeping your financial life in order. (ahem! Does 2008 ring a bell)

This may seem obvious, but we have a tendency to procrastinate when it comes to precautionary measures.   You should always maintain an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. You should review your portfolio insurance on a regular basis.  While most of us have home, life and auto insurance, many of us do not even consider portfolio insurance – our financial surroundings change and you may need to make some adjustments.

Make sure that you have adequate portfolio insurance to offset any calamity that the financial system can throw at us at any given time. A good adviser can help you assess the risks that are unique to your situation and ensure you are adequately covered.

In addition to portfolio insurance, you need an emergency plan to help you react quickly, should a disaster strike.  I recommend keeping all of your important documents and assets in a safe – Go to Home Depot and buy a safe. Inside the safe you will see 2 indents, one in the back and the other at he bottom. Drill that sucker to the stud in back of the safe and to the stud under the safe and fill it with your assets that you want protected… this is now your Central Bank.

I suggest hard assets, some cash, important documents and if you are on the same page as most of us, a diamondback .380 inside on the top. Why? Because I’ve always felt that when people have nothing to lose, they lose it and you will want to protect your family and the safe contents at all costs.

Be sure to back-up important computer files at an off-site location.  Document all of your personal belongings and special features of your home with a video or pictures; this should also be kept in the safe.

You also need to be prepared should something happen to you.  If others are dependent on your income, consider term life insurance to help them get by without your assistance.  If you are a primary wage earner, consider long term disability insurance to provide income if you are unable to work.

You should have a current will and health power of attorney.   When reviewing your will, be sure to review beneficiary designations for your retirement plans, annuities, and life insurance policies and your hard assets.

Generally, if you live within your means, stay out of debt and save 10–15% of your income, you will be better prepared to handle financial disasters that may arise.

Hope that helps shed some light – Oh, one more thing… stop procrastinating damn it and DO IT NOW!

Richard Russell – The Dollar Will Crash In A Matter Of Months – Money managers are frantically searching for income or profits.  So the question is — is the risk worth the potential reward?  As far as I’m concerned, the potential profits in these markets are not worth the risk.

I’m increasingly worried about holding dollars.  We can still trade in tangible unbacked dollars for real wealth, silver and gold.  I’m buying all the physical precious metals I can, while they are still available.

I think we are seeing the greatest transfer of wealth (West to East) in all history.  China is amassing a huge hoard of gold while I don’t know how much the US and the English speaking nations actually have.  The western central banks’ policy of selling gold to knock down the price is a disaster (and China must love it).

The US will lose its reserve currency advantage within a few years or probably less time.  Our defense against a weak economy is always to print more money.  In a matter of months, I see the dollar crashing.

Several Factors Suggest A Big Move Is Coming For Gold

The Mission Of The Silver News Surfer Has Always Been & Will Always Be – To Preserve Your Wealth, Protect Your Purchasing Power and Create Generational Wealth!

May Health Wealth And Success Be Yours!

 

I sure hope you had the chance to read the report I sent last Tuesday about the 6% interest program, If not, read it here.

Now onto protecting your wealth…

Several Factors Suggest A Big Move Is Coming For Gold – Thank God for the manipulation. We get to buy at lower prices.  I just wish they manipulated the price of food, clothing and shelter lower as well. – The oppressive and illegal manipulation of the gold market is starting to show unintended consequences again.

At the beginning of April the LBMA (London) gold forward rate (GOFO) turned negative again.  It’s been getting more negative every day this month.  The GOFO is the interest paid on dollar/gold swap transaction.  Ordinarily, it involves a party who pays interest to borrow dollars, using gold as collateral.

But when there’s a shortage of physical bullion, it means that one party needs to borrow gold and will pay interest plus put up dollars for collateral. It means that, at the current moment in time, it is perceived to be riskier to hold dollars than to hold gold.

Because there is a shortage of physical gold, the lender of the gold is being given the market value of the gold in dollars as collateral plus a rate of interest to compensate him for the risk that he might not get his gold back.  Think about that for a moment.

Currency Manipulation: The ECB Finally Said it – The head of the European Union’s monetary agency, Mario Draghi, said in Washington last week that the strengthening of the euro exchange rate would require further monetary policy accommodation. Huh? What did he just say?

Now here is something that doesn’t seem to be MANIPULATED. True, (Roy) people might not want to barter a diamond for food or ammo, but I’m not saying to park all your money in a rare color diamond, I’m just saying a portion of it.

Lets say you’ve got $100K allocated to hard asset protection – Tell me how $75K in gold and silver and a $25K color diamond doesn’t make sense – Because if the spit hits the fan like some think it will, it would be a heck of a lot easier to transport a 2 karat rare color diamond than the $75K in silver or gold.

I am looking all over and I see real wealth buying up assets. They’re buying art, real estate, rare color diamonds and yes, gold and silver too – just about any hard asset that they can park some money into until the smoke clears.

Lets say for the past 20 years you’ve been contributing to your IRA, 401K or even a savings account… If you took that money and protected it with a hard asset like a rare color diamond, you can’t tell me that you would not be far better off than if you didn’t. I mean, a 10-15% price appreciation for the past 40 years… with no down years! Source: Sotheby’s Auction House

I think that people sometimes forget that an IRA/401K is a long term savings plan for retirement and you want something with stability and long term growth… Right?

Just so we are crystal clear, I am A GOLD & SILVER BULL! Probably as big as they come. But I’m also a realist and as such, I would never park all my money or wealth in one asset class, no matter how good people say it is.

Gold and silver are money and because they are money and money is manipulated, I feel that it will always be manipulated… both to the upside (controlled) and the downside (uncontrolled). With that said, that’s why, in your best interest… I always promote diversity in hard assets – spread it across the board!

Now, of course, there are pros and cons to any investment you make, but these rare color diamonds have very few…

Odds favor a 10%-20% correction: Strategist – Stocks could be setting up for a 10 percent to 20 percent correction, and the odds are good that it will be soon, according to Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P/Capital IQ.

Stovall has been expecting a 10 to 20 percent correction this year, but he says it’s more likely to begin during the second quarter, based on historic market patterns. The S&P 500 was down 4 percent from its April 4 high in Tuesday trading.

2.  You can buy more ounces of gold for your money now.

3.  Gold is now, as always, a core asset that is essential in a political, economic or personal crisis.

What Really Happened at the Fed’s Secret Meeting…Gold’s Going to Go Ballistic, Silver Too – You saw how gold futures traders hung onto every word of Fed officials… hence the massive sell-off that spawned a gold anomaly by year’s end.

Lesson learned? Don’t stay so obsessed with what the Fed’s saying.

It’s painfully clear that they have lost control. The QE experiment will go down in the history books as a failure when all is said and done.

With no real signs of economic improvement on behalf of three rounds of quantitative easing — including Operation Twist — the consensus must be that massive money printing wasn’t exactly our economy’s knight-in-shining-armor (more like a whimsical summer fling at best).

In the meantime, the Fed is walking on eggshells to maintain an illusion of stability. With the end of the stimulus comes an adversely affected international high yield bond market, emerging market currency depreciation, and a reignited gold and silver bull run…

The Rising Costs For A Trip To The Grocery Store– Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases.

Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation’s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water crisis.

That could have “large and lasting effects on fruit, vegetable, dairy and egg prices,” according to a recent USDA report, which said the full impact has yet to be felt.

They are competitors to a paper currency backed only by the full faith and credit of a country, which spends roughly $1 Trillion more each year than it extracts in revenue.

Now look at the following 20 year graph of silver. Instead of being at all-time highs, like the S&P, it is off nearly 60% from its high. Silver looks like a better place to park, as Richard Russell says, un-backed junk currency called Federal Reserve Notes, instead of in the S&P.

One Of The Greatest Opportunities In More Than A Decade – Even with recent weakness, the MACD-indicator has now turned to a buy signal.  That’s a great signal since we are at such extreme levels, and in my opinion this is a very rare opportunity that should not go unnoticed by savvy investors.  Looking at the short-term picture, there’s a falling resistance line stretching from 2011 that has not yet been broken.

When the HUI breaks this resistance it will result in a short-term rally, and it also suggests that the ratio will have finally seen a major turning point.  This will mean a massive out-performance by the mining shares vs. the S&P 500, Dow Jones, and the NASDAQ.

Is Silver In A Bull Or Bear Market? – On the shorter time-frame, David Morgan expects a stronger than average summer for the metals. The Ukraine situation which results in Russia opting out of the dollar based payment system, will have big repercussions. That will not happen overnight, nor should one expect a massive and sudden market participation. This trend will likely put a floor below gold.

Big money will enter the precious metals complex as soon as a trend is established. They do not try to pick a bottom or top, but rather ride a trend. Silver’s trend is above $21, a price level which was tested twice. For a trend to be established, it should stay above it with big volume.

For more conservative investors, it is the $25 or $26 level that is critical. Breaking those levels on big volume will be the confirmation that the bull market is still present. The importance of those levels should not be underestimated, given that “old support becomes new resistance.” Given how (commodity) markets work, one can expect at least 3 attempts before silver will pierce through it.

Richard Russell – The Cheapest Thing On The Planet Is Silver – My advice, as it has been, is to move to the sidelines while holding large positions in physical silver and gold.  Regardless of what the markets do, silver and gold represent eternal wealth, and the bid to sleep undisturbed at night.

No amount of money is worth the loss of peace of mind.  The power of gold opened the American West and populated Alaska. Men have spent their lives searching for gold.  You can own gold by the simple action of swapping Federal Reserve notes for the yellow metal.  I advise you to do it.”

This Chart Shows Us How Bad The Economy Really Is: “Flashing Red Warning” – Forget about all the minute-by-minute noise for a moment and take a look at the following chart. It gives a very simple overview of earnings growth trends for stocks listed on the S&P 500 on a quarterly basis.

Last year saw what analysts would call fairly robust growth, and they had no problem citing these numbers for evidence of economic recovery. We’re curious what they’d call it now, considering this chart shows a massive collapse in earnings per share growth across the board.

Pay close attention to that yellow line, which indicates growth (or lack there of) for the first quarter of 2014. According to Zero Hedge this is a Flashing Red Warning as earnings growth plunges to its lowest levels since 2012:

Why the Chances of a Total Collapse in Stock Prices Are Increasing – Dear reader, each passing day, the stock market is getting riskier…the chances of a total collapse in stock prices are increasing. Now is a good time to preserve capital, rather than expose your portfolio to key stock indices just like pension funds, active fund managers, and other individuals are doing. Many indicators we follow suggest a market sell-off is closer than many anticipate.

Mark Twain once said, “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.” For stock market investors, the time to pause and reflect is now.

Everywhere you look (except in these pages), you’ll find individual investors and institutions bullish on key stock indices. It’s like they believe they can only continue going in one direction—up. Not much attention is being paid to the fundamentals that suggest a market sell-off is nearing.

Here Is The Reason Gold & Silver Are Being Hit Again…

The Mission Of The Silver News Surfer Has Always Been & Will Always Be – To Preserve Your Wealth, Protect Your Purchasing Power and Create Generational Wealth!

May Health Wealth And Success Be Yours!

Now onto protecting your wealth…

ABSOLUTELY NO REASON AT ALL!

The world is on fire and precious metals are getting slammed?

Here we are at the one year anniversary of the biggest metals smack-down we can remember on record in 30 years! I’ll never forget it.

For no reason at all, gold and silver were executed on tax day, April 15th, 2013 and one year later to the day, for the same reason (which is no reason at all)…

Gold:      –$ 32 sitting at  $1,292.

Silver:     -$.60 sitting at  $19.40

I have one word for you today… CHOICES!

Now Onto Something Really BIG! 

Please read entirely…

Well friends, today is the day! I can officially release the information I’ve been waiting to share with you.

Here is something I would like to introduce to you and I will explain why its so BIG!

This has been in the works since December of last year and with thousands of dollars paid to some of the best attorneys that represent the financial industry, we are ready to launch this exciting program.

What if there were a “type” of account, that instead of paying you 1% to 1.25% in interest… IT COULD PAY YOU UP TO … 6% interest

You know… like the good old days!

Would that appeal to you? I mean think about it. Your deposits at your bank are not even paying you what the FED’S dual mandate is calling 2% inflation! (even though you and I know that inflation is much higher) and is projected to rise even further; but your savings is only paying you 1%-2% if your lucky.

I have a close friend of mine who told me he locked up 250K on a 5 year CD three years ago to get 4.5% interest on his money and if he needs to liquidate, there is a $9,000 penalty! The kick is that they no longer offer a 4.5% anywhere today and “real” inflation is even above that!

TIMING IS EVERYTHING!

Grab your last months statement and see how much interest you’ve earned – I dare you! Most people don’t want to look because they are disgusted with the result. Not only the minuscule interest is hurting your savings… but look at the fee’s you are being charged – Read High fees eroding many retirement accounts and 5 Signs You’re Not Ever Going to Be Ready to Retire

Now, take a look at the research on yields that I have come across recently…

Savings accounts with the highest yields – “The average savings account has a measly 0.06% APY (annual percentage yield, or interest), and many of the nation’s biggest banks pay rates as low as 0.01%. But there are actually some accounts that pay yields closer to 1%.”

Makes you want to run to the bank right? Friends, look at how they are trying to dress up a 1% interest rate! You can put all the lipstick and make-up on it that you want, but when you turn on the lights, its still ugly!

Also, here are the Top High Yield Savings Accounts across the board as far as my eye can see…

Also, from The New York Times… Here is Why Savings Account Rates Are So Pathetic 

Well friends… now you, (if you’re qualified) have options!

What if you had the option of either receiving this 6% interest each month deposited right into your personal account, or letting it compound annually? Which option would you choose?

That’s right. There is no typo here… I said you have options!

Either let it compound for the term or receive the interest each month deposited in your account to help with your monthly expenses.

For most people, (as discussed here this past week) they are still in the stock market because they need cash flow and monthly dividends to help pay for the things they need each month. Mind you, they are nervous as all can be because the DOW is topping and we are approaching May (sell in May and go away ring a bell?) Now, look how over-extended the S&P 500 is… The bigger they rise, the harder they fall. We should all know this from experience right?


PastedGraphic-1-1

 

Also, everyone on the planet is saying look out below, but what other choices did you have if you needed monthly income?

This is why I have partnered up with and wanted to introduce you to an opportunity, so you have choices – BETTER CHOICES!

I collaborate with and partner with an influential circle that realizes that “together, we can accomplish more!”

So… when you have problems… I go find solutions!

The only reason I went out to find this is because of you, my faithful readers and friends.

Last year you asked me to lower my fees on physical silver and gold, and in order to do that, I had to resign as the Sr. Vice President of a large US Bullion Dealer where I  served for more than 5 years so I can have the flexibility to control costs and pass them on to you. (among other reasons) Then, I chose to stick with a HOME DELIVERY ONLY business model, because in my opinion, having a portion of your assets outside the banking/financial system is crucial, especially today.

Also last year, you asked me what other hard assets would be as good as gold and silver but not fluctuate so much with the market conditions… what did I do? I searched high and low and I brought you color diamonds as a way to preserve your wealth with virtually no market volatility – and remember, according to Sotheby’s these rare color diamonds have increased in value 10-15% each year for the past 40 years!

Then, you complained (and rightfully so) about how your bank was only paying 1-2% interest on your money and you could see your savings eroding right before your eyes… what did I do? I went out and co-developed a program that may pay you up to 6% on your money because again, I don’t focus on problems friends… I focus on solutions!

Now, I need you to know that NOT EVERYONE WILL BE QUALIFIED for this program, so don’t get mad at me. I tried my hardest to get everyone qualified because I believe everyone deserves this type of return but our attorneys said no way… not yet. You know the old saying that the man with all the gold makes all the rules right? (like China will be soon)

Well, similar to this explosive program… We have the best program available anywhere today, so we get to make the rules! No one, no where, no how is paying 6% interest on your money and with that, there are certain rules and guidelines we need must follow.

I REALLY HOPE that you trust me on this one and call me for more information…

Now onto the breaking news that matters…

Is the Market Primed For a Major Collapse?

Today’s the 2nd-Greatest Opportunity to Buy Gold Since 2002! Here’s Why – Nick Barisheff: Considering the strengthening fundamentals we witnessed for gold in 2013, despite its poor price performance, it appears that an opportunity similar to that of 1976 is a strong possibility.

Gold rose 450% from 1971 to 1974. It then retreated 43% over the next 18 months. Many investors lost confidence and sold their holdings vowing never to invest in gold again. However, during the next four years gold climbed 750%. A similar percentage increase from today’s price would see gold trading above $10,000 an ounce [$1,200 +450% = $10,200].

An Open Letter From A Reader

The Mission Of The Silver News Surfer Has Always Been & Will Always Be – To Preserve Your Wealth, Protect Your Purchasing Power and Create Generational Wealth!

May Health Wealth And Success Be Yours!

I received a note from a reader yesterday and I wanted to share it with you. If someone goes out of their way and takes their time to write, I want to listen and share it because maybe you feel the same way he does – Then at the bottom of the email today, I will focus on the solution…

I truly appreciate and respect when people speak their mind –

Begin:

Look, I do not know anything, like you do…

I read your blog faithfully every day and am impressed by your research and understanding, I even agree with all your assessment.

…yet you do it all wrong when trying to sell your silver and stuff – I think.

Now, do not take it wrong, but I might not be alone with this. I like to trade my stuff online, knowing the prices an all. I know some of the shady-looking outfits dealing with metals, and I’m telling you, I do not even go on the same side of the street. I am very uncomfortable even to ask anything.

So, when I go to your website, I am greeted with a registration questioner. I do not see any help about the process of buying – selling metals. I do not know where to go get it, how much is it, or where and how to sell it… So I deal with GLD and SLV… Sorry, I am stupid.

I think you also could do much better, if instead of registering, you would concentrate on helping to understand the exchange process, where and how to buy, where and how to sell. I am not interested holding a bunch of these metals and fear for my life… I need to be able to buy and sell with great ease, like I do my paper-metals.

Thanks, and I appreciate your good work with us.!

Frank M.

End:

Dear Frank,

First of all, I don’t think you’re stupid, just confused and I sincerely appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to write. I’ve always said that I do this research blog for you folks… just ask me or tell me what I can do better for you and I will do it to the best of my ability.

First, I guess I take for granted that I get a lot of new subscribers who come on board each day/week/month and I ASSume that everyone reading knows me and knows how to go about acquiring silver, gold and color diamonds from the Silver News Surfer – For that I apologize and now realize how I’ve been dropping the ball.

Now, if some of you are like Frank, holding onto GLD/SLV because its easier to trade “paper-metals” as he put it, then please read this report here Also read “Stay away from the SLV”

Then read Who Can I Trust With My Investments. If you want to know what one of the biggest name in wealth management has to say about protecting your wealth… read it here

That being said, let me explain how easy it is to own real silver that is purchased through the Silver News Surfer

Before I go there, let me table the trust issue. As I noted in yesterday’s email, I have several very happy and very satisfied customers and most of these people would be happy to attest to this fact. Also, I’ve been writing the Silver News Surfer for about 6 years now, so I’m not going anywhere anytime soon – More importantly, I am not a fan of the federal prison system, I hear the food there sucks!

With that said, I am not going to prison for your $10,000 investment or your $1 million investment. I like my freedom (what’s left of it) and I love my wife! So, you send money in, you get product home… PERIOD!

Now, with that out of the way, lets move on to my process…

First of all, suppliers of silver and gold charge a “premium” to purchase physical metal because you are buying the real metal, you should never pay commissions to buy physical metal, only the spread/premium.

Any conscientious supplier of silver will charge only a nominal spread/premium, somewhere in the vicinity of $2 and in some cases $4 and I’ve seen as much as $5 over spot, depending on the silver coins you are buying. (IE: American Eagles are the most expensive) The Silver News Surfer premium is down around $2.30 over spot and can go a bit lower for higher volumes.

The reason that I don’t post the different kinds of silver is because I am the type of individual who wants to go to work for you. I don’t want to just give you a few choices of what I have when I can get anything on the planet. I want to get to know you and your goals, then I can make recommendations that make sense for your particular situation.

For example… If you want to build a legacy – using gold and silver, then it may make sense to buy the eagles or other beautiful coins, whereas if you just want to make money for a certain period of time, then generic rounds with low premiums may make more sense.

This is a relationship business and I try to never forget that!

Moving on… once funds are received, you receive an email confirmation receipt of the funds within 1 hour, once the funds are cleared through bank wire (which is the best and easiest way to fund for expeditious delivery) or check (5-7 business days to clear before a price can be locked in) After the price is locked in and metal purchased, you can expect approximately 7-10 days for your metal to arrive discretely at your door.

Now, when silver makes the move that covers your premium and then some (for your realized profit) and you start to get anxious and want to sell, simply pick up the phone and call me and tell me how much you are shipping and when. As soon as the shipment hits my door, I’m on the phone with you to give you the live “bid” spot price of the day and that’s it. Its really that simple, easy and painless and all the while, MOST IMPORTANTLY, you have the physical asset in your possession and its outside the banking and financial system.

When it comes to the color diamonds, it is even easier…

First, you decide on your investment amount. The minimum is 20K. The funds are wired directly to The Diamond Market. When funds are received, a Representative of the company will call you and ask what you want you piece to represent for you and your family. They want to get to know you and make the best piece possible for you and your personality so you can be proud to own it, show it and leave it as a generational gift that you will stay in your family and that you will be remembered for forever… that friends is called legacy!

(If you remember the report I did this week on that wonderful new estate tax that came with the unaffordable health care act – It shows that when you die, your estate will be taxed up the wazoo too! It goes from 0 to 55%.)

The next step is that the color diamond comes to you with a GIA certification, (which is THE GRADING COMPANY of color diamonds) so you know its real and not synthetic. Also, it comes with a third party independent appraisal so you know the value of it when you get it – then what I think is the most phenomenal and impressive part of the whole process is that you get a 7 Day Free Look!!

If you don’t like it and are not completely in love with it… send it back! Try doing that with stocks, gold, silver, a car… anything – especially a large investment! That’s how much The Diamond Market believes in what they are doing for people – Storing wealth for generations to come!

That’s it friends, that’s the whole process and my fee’s. I hope, by disclosing all and showing transparency, you can come to trust The Silver News Surfer for your gold, silver and fancy color diamond purchases.

If you’d like to talk to anyone of my strong references, please call or write…

May health, wealth and success be yours!
