1. Weekly Article 05/27/2021 – ADV $400,000 – A Sign?

    Many Americans are blissfully unaware of what is actually happening in the real world. My guess is that the 24/7 propaganda machine-previously known as mainstream media is constantly bombarding the herd with mostly political and feelings stories rather than real news. This is why so many are not pre…Read More

  2. Weekly Article 05/20/2021 – ADV Cure Or Disease?

    The answer to nearly every problem in the past few years is “print” money. I remember when Covid first came out the central banks conjured up trillions of currency units. As far as I know, it didn’t stop the spread of the disease. As people’s incomes were decimated the central banks conjured…Read More

  3. Weekly Article 05/14/2021 – ADV What MIGHT Lie Ahead

    Sometimes we can look at history and make some interesting observations about what might lie ahead from where we are today. In regard to bitcoin, and many other cryptos, I have many times said that it was like the Dutch tulip mania back in the 1600s. We look at that today and think how could anyone …Read More

  4. Weekly Article05/07/2021 – ADV Buy Low Sell High

    Buy Low and Sell High. Pretty simple sentiment that very few are actually able to pull off. Some traders will say buy high and sell higher. Of course, they are counting on the “greater fool theory” that even though an asset is grossly overvalued someone will come along and pay more at a future d…Read More

  5. Weekly Article 04/29/2021 – ADV Inflation

    INFLATION. Almost every financial commentator is talking about it. According to the Fed, it will be transitory or in other words just a temporary phenomenon. While this latest bout of inflation appears to be exceedingly strong at this time, there are many forces at play here. My guess is that it wil…Read More

  6. Weekly Article 04/23/2021 – ADV Monetary Insanity

    I am wondering if anyone is really understanding just how much money creation is actually taking place. Of course, what we know is scary enough. The Japanese are “printing and buying” virtually all assets and most central banks are ‘printing and buying” most assets- whether they admit it or …Read More

  7. Weekly Article 04/16/2021 – ADV It Will Play Out

    Finally, we had less than 600,000 people file for first-time unemployment last week. I was wondering when we would run out of new claims since they have been persistently high for well over a year now. How high? How about 3 times the average prior to last March’s meltdown. Hopefully, we can now ge…Read More

  8. Weekly Article 04/08/2021 – ADV In Our Face!

    So many people my age are saying the same thing. We can’t recognize the country that we grew up in anymore. While the changes have been taking place for a long time the massive shifts have become more apparent as those “in charge” are so emboldened that they don’t even try to hide the fact t…Read More

  9. Weekly Article 03/31/2021 – ADV Price/Value

    Warren Buffett- “Price is what you pay- value is what you get”. What value are people actually getting these days when they buy stocks and bonds? Or for that matter real estate? At least real estate has a tangible value that will likely never go to zero which many paper assets can and often do- …Read More

  10. Weekly Article 03/26/2021 – ADV Stunning

    Earlier this week I wrote an article that highlights just how manipulated the metals markets actually are. Of course, you could make this point about ALL “markets” its just that most other markets are being artificially held up rather than being held down. I have many people who are frustrated b…Read More
