SHOW NOTES – America’s Artificial Economy: What You Should Know
Commentary on the financial markets and an update for precious metals investors
On this week’s Follow the Money podcast, Jerry Robinson provides his commentary on the second Presidential debate and the latest economic news. While the U.S. stock market remains in correction mode, recent economic data suggests that America is finally beginning to grow again. Housing starts and home prices are up, retail sales are on the mend, and consumers are borrowing more. Jerry explains why this seemingly good economic news is actually a sign that inflation is just around the corner.
Later, Jennifer Robinson shares 12 different places that wealthy investors are stashing their cash to protect against future inflation (besides gold.) And Jerry names the world’s 15 fastest growing economies along with his investment ideas.
Last week, we warned that the markets were in full correction mode. On Friday, stocks had their biggest one-day losses in over four months. All key S&P sectors closed firmly in negative territory, led by materials and tech. Despite the rough patch on Friday, the S&P 500 is still hovering above its 50 day moving average and its key support level of 1420-1425. If that level is broken next week, we will begin taking profits and raising cash.
Next, we are joined by Precious Metals advisor Tom Cloud who provides his insights on the week’s action in the gold and silver markets.
To hear what Tom Cloud thinks lies ahead next week for gold and silver, listen now.
PRECIOUS METALS COMMENTARY – GOLD IS ON SALE
In the latest Presidential debate, Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama both revealed that they plan on taking the U.S. Dollar lower versus the Chinese Yuan. Gold, however, continued to be pressured by a strengthening dollar. As you can see from the chart below, gold broke down below its 50 day moving average this week. Next week, pay particularly close attention to the key $1720 support level. If the price closes below that level on strong volume, it may cause gold to drift lower in the short term. We will be buying more if this occurs.
