After the recent trading action in gold, silver, the mining shares and the volatile stock market, we thought it was important to hear a reminder from the great ones.
The Godfather of newsletter writers, Richard Russell, on how he believed the end game would unfold: “The most important lesson in investing is never to sustain a big loss. With this in mind, I have and still do advise my subscribers to be out of all common stocks except for gold shares, and to be positioned in silver and gold bullion, holding the actual metals in a safe place.
Bull Market Top?
I have gone over the usual and even unusual methods which warn of a major bull market top. I could list them all, but that would take half a page of concentrated writing.
I know that all bull markets must end or go to the sky, and this bull market will not rise to the sky. I conclude that there must be a massive foolery coming up, something that current advisors do not know about.
Bear Market Will Be Massive
Yet I know that bear markets cause losses, and the question on my mind is … how will the next bear market create losses? I have only two theories; first, the market will decline in a jagged see-saw pattern, a pattern that creates no fear. The market drops ten percent and analysts declare that this is the long awaited and long expected ten percent correction.
But the general market continues to decline, and investors remain in the market waiting for the inevitable rally that will conclude the correction. No rally comes, and stocks continue to decline, suddenly there is a realization that this is no correction but a bear market, and down goes the bear, taking billion of shares with him.
The other scenario that I envision is one day, with no previous warning, the market drops and a huge gap, over a thousand points in the Dow opens. The authorities close the exchange for three days and when the market opens, it gaps down again. When the market finally opens again, thousands of stocks open well below their previous closes and a bear market is on.
Thus, this bull market continues while lacking all the conventional signs of a top. My advice to my beloved subscribers is that at this point, the potential loss outweighs the possible reward. The odds of a loss outweighs the possibility that this bull market could rise to the sky.
Gold And Silver Are Key
One last thought, being on the sidelines with silver and gold gives me peace of mind, a psychological calm that no amount of money can buy.
Big Money Is Preparing For A Devastating Worldwide Collapse
Speaking of panic, the auction prices for outstanding art and jewelry are up and off the charts. I just reviewed prices from Sotheby’s and Christie’s and items selling for over $100 million are not uncommon. Big money is paying close to this much for portable tangibles. Along with auction prices, amounts paid for select New York real estate are almost incomprehensible.
I ask myself why billionaires are willing to pay seemingly insane prices for outstanding tangibles such as Picassos and classic cars. They are preparing for the collapse of currencies and the days when rare tangible items will be a form of money.
