What Investors Can Learn From the Japanese Art of Kintsukuroi

What Investors Can Learn From the Japanese Art of Kintsukuroi  - What investors can learn from the Japanese art of Kintsukuroi or Kintsugi - art of repairing broken pottery with gold- Investors and savers can protect their savings with gold- Savers and investors are being punished by negative to low interest rates- Global debt levels, stock bubbles and reduced liquidity will lead to crisis- Reinforce cracks with gold prior to money pot shatters Source: Wikimedia Editor: Mark O'Byrne Kintsukuroi or Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold and silver. The Japanese like to consider it a way of not only repairing the item but also transforming it into something new which is pristine and has a new potential. For the philosphers in the art world they like to ask how can something of such beauty be created from a shattered vase or bowl? Our politics, markets and economy are broken. With each passing day we see more evidence of a globalised, interconnected world that is also increasingly politically and financially fragmented. In turn this is raising tensions between and within countries. Especially between the 'haves' and 'have nots.' We have seen this before, many times in history, when the greed of mankind and his belief in infallibility leads us to believe we can perform unprecedented financial experiments. The more we push on with the experiments, rather than learning from history, the bigger the cracks and damage. Jim Rogers recently expressed his disgust at banks’s claims that had they not acted as they had in response to the financial crisis then things would be worse. Rogers disagrees, all they have done is papered over and widened the cracks… "propping up zombie banks and dead companies is not the way the world is supposed to work. ... It's been nine years and we have nothing to show for it [economically] except staggering amounts of debt.” In order for Kintsugi to transpire the artist must ‘see’ a cracked pot differently. A new perspective has to be taken. The pot is not broken, it is not useless instead it is something which has potential to become stronger and better. We must begin to look at our economy in a similar light. Our savings are not useless, in the same way our economic system is not useless. But they are weak in their current state, they should be made stronger rather than forced to take on more pressure. The art of seeing differently Last week, came the news that global debt levels were 327% of world gross domestic product (GDP), at $217 trillion in the first quarter of 2017. We have added over $120 trillion since the financial crisis. In the weeks before the world’s top money managers had rung the warning bell that this pot was ready to crumble. Marc Faber told CNBC that ‘everything’ is in a bubble with the risk that: “One day this bubble will end,”  and as a result people will lose 50% of their wealth. Mohammed El Erian, part of the global financial elite but someone who we should all listen to, has also expressed similar concerns to Faber. He wrote on Bloomberg that because of reduced liquidity resulting from simultaneous policy tightening by central banks, he has some serious doubts about the sustainability of the current overextended bull market in stocks. Meanwhile Bill Gross believes markets in the US are at their highest risk levels post-2008 as investors are paying a high price for taking chances. The low (and negative) interest rates of  central banks are artificially driving up asset prices. This is creating little growth in the real economy and as a result is punishing individual savers and businesses. Even those who are generally more concerned with individual wellbeing rather than the health of the global economy are now getting involved in firing warning shots. Life guru Tony Robbins has warned that ‘the crash is coming’ both in a book and on a regular podcast. He recently pointed to the falsehoods that we are all being told about the system, "We are in a really artificial situation. There is a new high, on average, every month. Feds around the world have been printing money.” But, this is the world we live in. Should we wait and see how it plays out? Bury our heads in the sand? Or, should we instead think about what we can do differently. How we can look at his situation and take a new perspective, give it some potential and extended future? Like the art of kintsukuroi we may be able to give it a second chance, with gold. Gold is for everyone: Some are already filling the cracks with gold “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway Countries around the world (including large nations such as Russia and China) are acquiring gold at an accelerated rate in order to diversify their reserve positions. When you consider the already substantial reserves in the US, Germany and the IMF, we may already be moving quietly towards a default gold standard. There is a reason these countries and organisations are accumulating and/or holding onto gold. They know that when things take the inevitable turn for the worst, gold will alleviate the financial and monetary damage. They know this because whilst their economic policies might not reflect any knowledge of history, history including the recent crisis shows them that gold has survived history because of it’s ability to hold value and act as a safe haven. Unfortunately the chances of the majority of the world’s leaders realising how they can fix the cracks before they become breaks, are low. But that doesn’t mean investors can’t embrace gold to fix the cracks that their finances and investments are exposed to. As with the broken pots, gold just needs to be a small part of your portfolio. A small allocation confers stability and insurance. Jim Rickards argues that the solution to the risks we are all exposed to is to allocate 10% of your portfolio to physical gold or silver:‘That will be your insurance when the time comes.’ Whether it is 5%, 10% or 50%, gold should play a part in your portfolio to give it strength in the tough times that are no doubt ahead. Just one look at the table below (from guru Tony Robbins) and you can see how little an amount needs to go in, in order to fill the cracks and reduce volatility and enhance returns in a portfolio. All Seasons strategy via Ray Dalio via Tony Robbins You might ask why isn’t there a rush to gold if it’s the way to secure our portfolios? Only the smart money is diversifying into gold now - as was the case before the first financial crisis. Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics recently said: ‘Gold and the stock market will take off when people realize that government is in trouble. When they lose confidence, that is when they will start to pour into tangible assets.’ Conclusion - Reinforce the financial cracks with gold Really kintsukuroi is about highlighting imperfections. Many reading this might ask why on earth one would want to highlight the imperfections in the banking system and the global financial system rather than just starting from scratch. We don’t need to go so far as to lose our wealth in order to realise how we can protect ourselves. There is no changing the damage that has been done. We cannot erase the past, only learn from it. How do you learn from things? By remembering what has happened and by incorporating those lessons into every day life. We can do that with gold. We can learn from the past mistakes and bring gold into our portfolios to protect and grow our wealth. Gold has consistently proven itself in times of economic distress. Those who have benefited the most from this are the ones who bought their insurance and reinforced the cracks prior to the shattering crash.

Why Are Financial Advisors Keeping Quiet About A 25% Risk-Free Return?

Interested in precious metals investing or storage? Contact us HERE    Why Are Financial Advisors Keeping Quiet About A 25% Risk-Free Return? Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)       American financial advisors have tough jobs. It’s hard to keep clients happy when bond yields are near zero and stocks are trading at historic highs.   However, a quick look at the data suggests that there is a simple investment available to nearly 120 million Americans that will enable them to earn 15% risk-free, after tax, and in many cases, much more.   Yet, financial advisors are keeping quiet. So are politicians and big bank economists.   This column does not provide investment advice. That said, according to one expert, the best financial move most Americans could make would be to pay down their credit card balances.   “It seems obvious,” says Edouard Pahud, a Montreal-based financial and management consultant. “However, high current debt levels suggest that many consumers aren’t getting the advice they need.”   Pay down credit card debt The stakes are huge. According to CreditCards.com, the average credit card interest rate was 15% last year. That means paying off a credit card balance equates to a 15% annual return.   Better still, paying down debts is risk-free.   Creditcards.com figures that the average American between the ages of 18 and 65 has $4,717 worth of credit card debt. At a 15% rate of interest, using a minimum payment level of $189 a month, it would take 10 years to pay that down.   Total payments would amount to $22,869, including a stunning $18,155 in interest costs.   Worse, says Pahud, those interest costs come in “after-tax dollars”, which means that the real returns related to paying down credit card debt are much higher.   “A person in the 40% tax bracket would have to earn an extra $25 for every $15 he wants to pay down on his credit card loans,” says Pahud. “That means his real returns from paying down interest bearing credit card debt are near 25%.”   Why aren’t Americans getting the straight goods? What is stunning is how few financial advisors are explaining this simple strategy.   According to the US Census Bureau, 183 million Americans own credit cards. Of these, around two-thirds (say 120 million) carry revolving balances and are thus subject to those high rates of interest.   Clearly many financial advisors aren’t doing their jobs. Why that is, is unclear. In today’s busy world, perhaps advisors just assume their clients aren’t carrying credit card balances.   Marc Faber, of the Gloom Boom Doom report, suggests that many Americans burdened by credit card debts simply don’t have access to good financial advice.   Another possibility is that financial advisors, as a group, are just one example in an entire class of experts who aren’t giving Americans the straight goods.   Politicians, economists and teachers also at fault For example, economists learn about the “Paradox of Thrift” in their first weeks of Econ 101, which states the importance of individuals paying down their debts. But when was the last time a big bank economist said that publicly?   Politicians know the dangers of high debt loads too.   However Donald “I am a low-interest rate guy” Trump would never risk telling Americans to pay down their debts in a forceful way, as that would hurt his election chances and his real estate business.   Trump is not alone. Politicians of all stripes quietly pray that Americans will borrow more, hoping that the resulting spending and economic activity will put voters in a good mood come election time.   Perhaps the worst culprits, though, are the nation’s teachers. Today’s high school graduates emerge from 12 years of drudgery knowing essentially nothing about saving and financial management.   What else aren’t they telling you? Given the lousy advice Americans are getting, it’s hardly surprising that the American Association of Individual Investors calculates that two-thirds of clients don’t trust financial advisors to act in their best interests.   But there is a lot more at stake than just credit card balances.   Because if financial advisors aren’t providing advice about a simple trick that will help earn clients a 15% (and in many cases 25%) risk-free, after-tax return, maybe they are missing other stuff, too.   For example, gold bugs complain that mainstream financial analysts don’t give precious metals the respect they deserve.   We don’t take a position on this.   However, investors would clearly be well-served by asking harder questions of all their experts and leaders.     Questions or comments about this article? Leave your thoughts HERE.         Why Are Financial Advisors Keeping Quiet About A 25% Risk-Free Return? Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)

Там нет никаких валютных войн

До золотых жуков дошло, что валютных войн нет. Ваш покорный слуга это утверждает с 2011 года в различных публикациях, в мае 2013 отдельной статьёй по теме: Валютные войны? Или? С важной оговоркой: нет валютных войн между центробанками-эмитентами резервных валют, но есть их общая война против валют остального мира. Разумеется, для западных жуков эта война почти незаметна. Две цитаты с Запада:Пишет Louis Cammarosano:There are no “Currency Wars”.Там нет никаких валютных войн - просто скоординированные манипуляции центральных банков.Центральные банки в скоордининированной эстафете по очереди обесценивают свои валюты."Валютные войны" - часто повторяющийся городской мем. smaulgld.comВторое высказывание от известного инвестора с большим стажем Марка Фабера:The point is however the following: the central banks around the world have engaged in money printing and it’s not at all a currency war. It is a coordinated effort by central banks that are run by some professors who’ve never worked a single day in their lives in the private sector to kind of bail out the system. Now this bailout will of course fail. And when it fails, the question is what will happen then.Пойнт в следующем: центральные банки по всему миру вовлечены в денежную эмиссию, и это вовсе не валютные войны. Это скоординированные усилия центральных банков, в которых работают некоторые профессора, что никогда не работали ни одного дня в своей жизни в частном секторе, чтобы хоть отчасти выручить систему. Теперь это спасение, конечно, не удастся. И когда это не удаётся, вопрос что будет потом.Я держу около 25% своих активов в драгоценных металлах. Не знаю, будет ли серебро идти более или золото, но факт - просто я хочу, чтобы некоторые активы были вне банковского сектора. Потому что банковский сектор находится в ведении академической мафии. Они являются разрушителями покупательной способности денег. Профессора в Федрезерве - они не заботятся о простых людях. Они даже не независимы. Они правят как будто кто-то говорит им: "Вы делайте это, вы делайте то." В значительной степени это банковские картели... Покупательная способность денег будет продолжать снижаться. schiffgold.comФабер уже попадал в поле моего зрения в 2012 г. - Стиглиц, Кругман, Шлаэс, Фабер... Ну что ж, он продвинулся. Справедливости ради следует отметить, что Джим Рикардс - бывший разведчик и автор бестселлера "Валютные войны" скорректировал свою позицию в таком же ключе два года назад: Оперативная программа обороны БРИКС в валютной войне.В сентябре 2014 я обозначил условие, при котором и до каких пор для евро будет формироваться новый коридор:Если свопы не появятся 25 сентября (свопы открывают по четвергам) - можно рисковать, ибо значит ФРС-ЕЦБ для евро опустили коридор. Харибда Феду: подключается ЕЦБ.Разумеется, несколько неожиданно, что процесс затянулся, но учитывая глубину погружения евро, большая скорость всплытия доллара чревата кессонной болезнью в Штатах.Понимаю, многим мой аргумент об отсутствии или наличии свопов как индикаторе коридоров в согласованной эмиссии внутри ЦБ-6 кажется недостаточным. Дескать, если бы коридоры стояли до сих пор, как простояли с 2012 до весны-лета 2014 гг...Ещё в дек-2011 я предупреждал, что коридоры не могут быть вечными и будут корректироваться время от времени.Посмотрим теперь на самую прыгучую в шестёрке валют - японскую йену: падение прекратилось 8 дек 2014 г. и с того дня она болтается в коридоре 116-122 на фоне растущего по миру доллара. Так вот: падение прекратилось как только появился валютный своп между Банком Японии и ФРС:И этот своп обновляется каждую неделю с того дня. См. Federal Reserve Foreign Exchange Swap Agreements. Сумма незначительная - 1...3 млн долл, хотя по договору она не ограничена. Не ограничена, как стало модно говорить, от слова "совсем" - даже срок действия договоров между ЦБ не ограничен - см. Валютные свопы навсегда! То есть этот символический миллион-три был как флажок.А вот первого апреля появился своп на 810 млн долл. Это уже значит, что некие непонятливые спекулянты быкуют в прямом и переносном смысле доллар к йене... но получат по рогам. И какую бы сумму желающие быковать не ставили на повышение доллара, Банк Японии покроет её долларами, прокачанными от ФРС через бекдор. Подробнее о своп-правилах см. Swapfaqs. Кстати, эти 810 млн долл являются ничем иным как краткосрочной эмиссией ФРС с возможностью бесконечного продления - заметьте, без всяких там объявлений. Конечно, сумма не столь значительна, но понадобится - напечатают и 100 и 200 млрд долл - такое уже было не раз.P.S. Привет нашим экспертам - четыре года талдычат из дуроскопа городской мем. Пожалуй, из всех на тв можно отметить лишь одного эксперта - если пожелает, то вставлю сюда его имя - он иногда отмечается у меня в блоге под разными никами. Кстати, с товарищем связана одна интригующая история: осенью 2013-го он за три недели до спрогнозировал день в день обвал на русской бирже и после этого события сразу удалил свой блог - народ в догадках выдвигал самые невероятные версии о профите и судьбе предсказателя :)
