When I first met Martin, almost 20 years ago in 1995, we immediately hit it off. We talked of bubbles past, present and future. We both knew, instinctively, that it was only a matter of time before the world would experience such a rash of bubble–blowing, that nothing, absolutely nothing, would ever be the same again.
Together, we set out on a mission: To expose the shenanigans both on and off Wall Street. We tore apart the financials of companies like Enron and WorldCom. We repeatedly warned investors of their imminent demise.
We warned of the Asian financial crisis in 1998, and the demise of Long Term Capital Management, the first major financial derivatives bombs that exploded and nearly took down the U.S. banking system.
We warned of the Mexican “peso” crisis, and how investors would be fleeced by the investment bankers.
We exposed the crooked sales pitches that Wall Street used to get you to buy just about anything under the sun, investments that brokers themselves knew hardly anything about, or worse, laughed at, but which they could sugarcoat with such finesse it would make a candy-maker shy.
|Investors should think on their own, to dispel all the misinformation that’s out there.|
We harped, over and over again on conflicts of interest on Wall Street. We exposed crooked gold and silver bullion dealers. We left no stones unturned in our efforts to protect investors.
We warned of the real estate crisis, harped on and capitalized on the birth of emerging markets, caught the entire rally in the gold market since 2000, and its turn into a temporary bear market in 2011, and more, much more.
We will continue to warn investors of the dangers that Wall Street and Washington seem to perpetually create for investors.
But by the same token, we will also always do our utmost to help you profit from them.
Because very simply put, no matter how insensitive Wall Street or Washington is to your wealth, we’re the opposite …
And we want you to have as many informed opportunities to protect and grow your wealth as is humanly possible.

That’s especially true in today’s global economy, where central banks and governments all over the world are determined to save — not you, but their own butts — and at your expense.
It’s also why Martin has set out on a mission to help you profit from further rallies in the market — with stocks that are fundamentally strong and pay good dividends even WITHOUT the wind in their sails from money printing and other government schemes.
It’s why I am constantly harping on investors to think on their own, to dispel all the misinformation that’s out there, to avoid buying into conspiracy theories, and to recognize markets for what they truly are …
Subject to free market forces that no investment banker, central bank, or government can ultimately manipulate or control.
It’s also why we are searching out many new ways to help you profit — including strategies to help you grow your wealth as America’s enormous bond bubble continues to burst … as the dollar continues to rally … and as gold and other tangible assets continue lower in their temporary, but powerfully disinflationary, bear markets.
2015 is going to be a banner year for YOU. According to my models, it will be a year as significant, if not more so, than 2008, when the real estate crisis hit.
It will be the year sovereign debt markets collapse … the year the euro plummets into an abyss, and with it, the entire European Union experiment.
It will also be a pivotal year in the war cycles, with more conflicts due to hit, all over the globe. From increased cyber espionage to more social protests against authorities.
From increasing currency wars, to outright trade wars.
From domestic and international terrorism, the increased frequency of civil protests and wars, to outright international conflict.
And the markets — all of them — will be ripe for the picking.
We’re lining up new products to help you profit … revitalizing existing products to make sure they are up to the task … and fine-tuning every aspect of our research, our economic models, our trading models and more.
As for the markets right now, gold and silver may have one more bounce in them, but they remain in bear markets which will bottom in 2015.
Most commodities also remain in bear markets, even oil, which will not see its lows until it moves below the $50 level. And no, the decline you’ve seen in oil is not a conspiracy theory, designed to break Putin, as so many conspiracy theorists claim.
It’s disinflation, which is striking almost everywhere, depressing the prices of most tangible assets, while providing still more fuel for the long–term bull market in the Dow, which will see the 31,000 level, in the years ahead.
For now, I wish you a very, Merry Christmas!
