    Has anyone sat down and wondered just why we keep hearing that our economy is improving but that we still need trillions more in stimulus? Has anyone sat down and looked at the actual numbers from the CDC that show Covid is nowhere near as deadly as presented and wondered why we shut our economy dow…Read More

  2. Weekly Article 09/18/2020 – ADV Are You Ready?

    Another Fed meeting has come and gone and basically nothing much has changed. The outcome, which I am sure was totally expected, is that interest rates will be held low for as long as possible and there is no amount of “money” that the Fed won’t create to buy assets and manage virtually all pr…Read More

  3. Weekly Article 09/11/2020- Are You Positioned Correctly?

    The illusion of “normal”. This is a phrase I have used often in the past but I believe that where we are at right now exemplifies just how Abnormal our current circumstances are. I hear Larry Kudlow come out and say we have a “spectacular recovery” going on. Our President calls it a SUPER-V!…Read More

  4. Weekly Article 09/03/2020 – ADV Disconnected

    As I looked at Facebook this morning one of the first things I saw was a post that showed the “markets” were rising and that this person was giddy with excitement. I guess I might be too if I had no clue that the “market” has nothing to do with the underlying economy at all. The economy is d…Read More

  5. ADV Update 08/28/2020

  6. Weekly Article 08/25/2020 – ADV What IF?

    I see many articles out there promoting the idea that the Fed and other central banks are losing control of the situation that they themselves have created. They make many good points about the fact that the debts that have been piled up globally could not ever be repaid with the current values of t…Read More

  7. Weekly Article 08/20/2020 – ADV Misinformation?

    There is a lot of information being disseminated out there. Too bad a lot of it is more mis-information than facts. I see many people like Steve Mnuchin and Larry Kudlow coming out and talking up the economy while I am witnessing a depression take place right in front of my eyes. I am watching small…Read More

  8. Weekly Article 08/12/2020

    I have spoken many times about our “markets” being nothing but an illusion and that all prices are fake. I believe I have made that point enough but there is another set of circumstances which, it appears to me, is skewing people’s view of reality also. As the government is setting up for anot…Read More

  9. Weekly Article 08/05/2020

    Many people have been surprised by the large gains in the precious metals sector recently. The only surprise to me is how long it has taken to play out. The question now seems to be “How far can this go?” It is anyone’s guess but I think it is safe to say that there will be major upswings and …Read More

  10. Weekly Article 07/29/2020

    It’s been a long time since I have written specifically about the gold and silver markets. Generally, I like to keep an eye on what is happening economically, politically, socially and geopolitically to try and determine what assets might perform better than others in the future. Many of my recent…Read More
