Can we talk?

CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE DISCUSSION

I think this is a critical time for you and me to have a serious conversation about your investments.

Nearly three months ago, I promised that the entire Weiss Research team would do whatever it takes to bring you practical, actionable strategies for growing your wealth …

And also for KEEPING your principal and profits intact in spite of any storm clouds on the horizon.

Since then, the S&P 500 has surged to all-time record highs.

At the same time, just as our team has warned you, gold and other commodities have plunged.

Now, I’m asking you to do me a very important favor:

Help me help you harness the enormous power of this rally — by filling me in on your investment approach and your financial goals for the rest of the year.

Each day for the next six days, I will send you an email like this one, asking you an important question.

Simply click the link in the email to jump over to my personal blog to answer that day’s question and to discuss your answer personally with our analysts and me.

Today’s Question of the Day:
What percentage of your portfolio
is invested in U.S. stocks today?

Please click this link and give me your answer now!

My team and I will use your answers as the basis for new online briefings and other free services offered to Money and Markets readers.

This should be fun, informative and I will be in your debt.

Thanks in advance for your help with this …

Good luck and God bless!

Martin

Except for some investments in mutual funds, I do not have any investments in the United States. The problem is that the way the United States is going after any tax money they can get, any investments in $US stocks or land is taxed on my death. It is also possible that if the investment is significant, the US Government will take the position that they are entitled to a portion of 100% of my assets, even thought they are not, and have never been in the United States. That would be significant.

Dear Mr. Weiss, Thanks for thinking of me. I am a retired working woman. My nesteggs is primarily IRA that roll over from 401K. So I am the smallest of the small investors. My investment are on Vanguard Enengy Fund, Vanguard Prescious Metal Fund, Vanguard Emerging Market Fund. The first 2 are not meeting my expectation but I don't know the good way to pull money out or should it be done at all. I am looking for growth, the more aggressive, the better it is. Those funds are over 95% on stock. I am willing to look into junior mining, but not sure whether it should be on profolio.

Virtually none of my money , except for a few select inverse etf's. and foreign country etf's. Maybe, 5% invested. I'am all in cash, and I am looking to trade currencies but have not taken the plunge into the market. I believe all commodities and most all currencies will deflate in the next few years, before we go through a period of hyper inflation. Basically I don't think the Fed can artifically keep the Dow and S & P up for much longer and have taken most all my money on the sidelines. I am not seeking a return, I think it is more prudent to keep what is mine, recognizing the fiat system we live in robs savers and rewards lazy people who believe they are entitled to what the rest of us earned. In short, I think the risk reward profile for the market is a lot of risk for little reward.

I don't expect the American people will ever understand where money comes from. Money as you know does not represent ink on paper. Article 1, section 10 of the constitution clearly defines what money reall is. I don't this has ever been repealed.

Hi Martin, I have liquidated most of my US stocks and now are still holding Yamana Gold (AUY), EPD and WPRT in small quantities. I am waiting for the stocks I sold earlier to fall lower than 10-20% before I start to accummulate some more. I understand May is the month when most punters will take profits or cut loses. Normally, I will invest about 10% of my local and US stock portfolio in US stocks. I would very much like to sell short the market when the market come down. But my current three local brokers do not allow short selling. Hence, even though there are certain US ETFs that can be sold short, my brokers do not allow me to trade in these ETFs. So, it is a one way traffic for me, that is to do cost averaging when the stocks fall and hold them until it reach my level of profit of say 10-20% before I dispose of them. If the fundamental of these stocks change from positive to negative, I will just dump them quickly. Overall, I have made a profit of over S$60,000 only on those stocks I sold. If the stock market is inactive or moving sideway, I will trade forex.

I have no investments in U.S. stocks. I simply have two IRA's in precious metals. One Roth IRA with 1000 silver eagles & one traditional IRA which was ~$30k of gold & some cash ~$20k. I rolled over my 401k two yrs ago to the precious metal IRA. I'm 67 & still working full time. It seems like any time I try to invest - even in something quite sound like Gold I still lose. I'm not sure what to do, but I think the Roth IRA requires I keep my investment for 5 yrs before taking a distribution. I have another 4 yrs to go on that. I hope silver will climb back up by then. I feel very cautious now. I don't have any more money I feel I can lose. I also know nothing about investing in stocks. John.

In my trust, managed by a bank, I have 34% in equities, 7% in REIT, 17% in "alternatives" such as gold and MLP fund. Unfortunately, the rest is in fixed income because that is what the bank wants me to be in. It is a constant battle to get it changed !! I have an IRA loaded with bonds also and am trying to decide if I can do a self-directed IRA,but it looks complicated.

The rest is in ETFs such as DDP, DTO, EUO, UNG, DGZ - movements of commodities, currencies. Some cash. Fixed Index Annuities: Out of my reach and rides up with the market. Never goes down. No matter what happens, this money is safe. 401K. As a rule, I never speculate this money. It remains as cash.

I live in Canada now but have lived and worked in the US for many years. I am retired and look after my investments myself. I selectively take into account advice from your analysts, namely Larry and Nilus and have subscribed to their newsletters in the past. I am also receptive to advice from other analysts, as long as they reflect the following fundamental views: 1. Bonds or bond funds are not safe for long term holdings. 2. Gold and silver are commodities. Gold shares are equities. 3. All markets are manipulated by the governments some more some less. 4. Emerging markets are dangerous places for our money. 5. European and Japanese markets tend to be deflationary. 6. US markets are also deflationary but the government is trying the hardest to fight this trend. They will prevail in the end (I hope) and create eventually an environment where there is a moderate inflation that supports healthy growth and reduces the debt burden. Currently, my combined portfolio is approximately 30% in cash, mostly in US Dollars, 30% in CDN short term bonds or CDs, 10% in Canadian stocks or ETFs denominated in CDN dollars and about 30% in US stocks or ETFs.

Am holding off for a while to see if this market has enough legs to keep going up, but have serious doubts it does. The incredibly large amount of new $'s (our's, EU's & Japans') doesn't seem to be working its stock market magic anymore.

The answer to the question is: less than 5% of my portfolio is invested in U. S. stocks. I don't plan on going over 5% unless my current investments take-off like gangbusters. I have numerous other investments, but do not care to discuss them in this forum. I am an old man fighting a half-dozen illnesses and chronic depression, so I am devoting less and less time to "acquiring stuff," including money. More time is being spent playing with my grandchildren, riding my Harley-Davidson, going to church, praying for the sorry state of this nation to improve, and trying to keep my wife happy. No offense intended to Weiss Research, its customers, or the USA, my home for which I fought and was wounded in a useless war which was a gigantic mistake by our pols.

About 30% mostly in oil/gas Canadian dividend stocks and US fast foods. 30% in metals although I'm beginning to wonder if buying more is the right path. Could we be in for a gold bear market for n years? If Japan is buying our bonds and stocks and not gold that will prop the US up for maybe a long time. 20yr treasury rates are going down so somebody besides our fed is buying them. Then you still have the Europeans reeling from the Cyprus bank heist which undoubtedly will be a model to follow here too. Perhaps Japanese and European banks are having to sell off Gold to get enough to cover withdrawals. So the scramble will be to get money into safe places like ????? Russia in 1997 when we were there was using US dollars for a currency. Not roubles! We might be at 10% inflation right now but notice how all the currencies seem to stay relatively the same including those fiscally responsible ones like Canada. So they are losing value too despite being good. Fundamentals don't seem to matter. So when does the real inflation hit? Will Japan collapse first? When?

Martin, I will not have time to pull together my notes. Perhaps I can mention a few of my issues, and return later with neatly organized details. Increasing sovereign debt and debasement of currencies may push equities higher. As I continue writing, I'll simply refer to currencies as dollars. US dollars, national debt and the Fed make up an entirely separate topic. Individuals and funds are exchanging dollars for stocks. Stocks are perceived to retain value better than dollars. Also, there is presently more perceived reward in stocks than precious metals, so gold and silver are in disfavor. Buying stocks with near-zero interest money helps inflate the bubble; but I think this should be considered separately. Here's a thought experiment. Consider broad-based ETFs like Vanguard's VT. Pick VWO, VEU or some sector you may like better; but VT makes a good case. Also, pick iShares, SPDRS or any others. I can imagine ETFs like VT becoming a currency of the future. We might trade shares of VT instead of dollars. The connection between value and ETF shares is more apparent than the connection between value and dollars. Gold and silver are not dead. I think sovereign nations are quietly hording the stuff. One day we may see a gold backed international trade currency. Trade can be based on paper receipts (the currency) connected to audited stockpiles of gold. The Fed does not have a stockpile of gold than can pass audit. There has been no full audit since the 50s, and apparently that audit was not rigorous. Why must Germany wait 10 years before receiving its gold? I wish I had time to keep up with this story. I once studied the possibility of market manipulation. I was stunned by what I discovered. On my reading list: Dark Pools Currency Wars Some of the Amazon commentary for Dark Pools is interesting—technical and beyond my understanding. I don't have time to keep up with everything. I learn enough to make decisions about where to put retirement savings, then consider the opportunities for making new money. Short version, my opinions... I'll head over to the blog. I'm sure there are things I need to learn. Regards, John

Dear Dr Weiss; I have been a subscriber to the Weiss group for over four years and I am presently in the Weiss Elete Group. I have been in almost every group you have started since the beginning of 2009. Unfortunately I feel overwhelmed by the reading material, the many choices, and many loses due to recommendations and some wins. By the time each Weiss Group gets there recommendation approved, much of the early gains are lost. I have $400,000 invested in Mutual fund with several brokerage firms and $125,000 with Fidelity in stocks which have given my only about a 4 -5% gain each year for the past 10 years. Of the $400,000 invested in the mutual fund market, $240,000 are in a 403B and $155 is in a variable annuity with AIG. $100,000 0f the $155,000 is not taxable. The remaining $130,000 is invested with Fidelity in 68 different stocks, mostly recommended by the various Weiss Groups combined. Still I am only gaining 4-5% yearly with alot of worry and frustrations, and time consumming effort. I am 72 years old and my wife is 68 years old. We are both retired with $50,000 in pensions and social security combined. We have no debts and a house paid for. We also own no gold or silver. We are both conservative people and are very worried about the direction our country, our government , and our monitary system is headed. We have worked hard to save what little we have. I pray for wisdom and we do not know where to go from here. Respectfully yours, RW

Overall, I think you're doing a nice job. A consistent 4-5 percent return is good, I think. I read much more commentary than I want to read. The commentary helps me understand what's going on in the world economy. Specific recommendations are somewhat secondary. Also, good recommendations may head south before heading north. Lack of patience has been a problem for me. I would recommend owning a few Swiss Helvetias or similar 90 percent gold coin. Otherwise some Canadian Silver Maple Leafs. There is lots and lots of bad press for variable annuities. Finding a good one will take a long time. Each is based on hundreds of pages of legalese. The legalese defines the real product--what you bought. The direction of the country? Put on your seat belt and pray. J

Jan April 17, 2013

37% in stocks....I just retired and since the indicators are all lousy for the economy and the market, I played it safe. Once I get accustomed to my retirement needs, I'll do some shifting. Being more into bonds does not make me feel safer, even avoiding long-term bonds, but I got hit with a large tax bill for liquidating some holdings to purchase the ETFs that you recommended so there doesn't seem to be much I can do with government calling the shots.

As to the specific question. More than 50 percent in US stocks. Mostly related to infrastructure (railroads, utilities, etc.). I also invest in MLPs. I'm behind on my MLP research. Some stocks in consumer staples and healthcare. I managed to move from 401k funds availability to PCRA. That's the best thing that's happened in a long time. I am now turning off these fingers. I don't contribute much to blogs. Two posts...very unusual for me!

Good Day Dr. Weiss, I would like to write back and forth, but at this time I do not have any investments except my IRA but soon my “X” will get half of that and the other investments I foolishly paid on a house I should have not bought in the first place. Yes, I will soon be divorced and I will have to regroup and begin on the financial journey once again. Bottom Line and Up Front, at this point, I do not want to waste your time Dr., but I am interested in input like I am reading above. It will be a slow road for me, but I am determine to get to a level where I can retire again.

I have 22 percent in stocks and ETF's, but of this a significant amount is in GLD which is offset temprarily by some GLL. Therefore I really only have 10 percent in stocks and ETF's. With the market at a near all time high I find it hard for me to invest in more equities. But I also realize that the Price Earnings are favorable so maybe I should, don't know. I am retired and have no other income so I need some investment income. With inflation looming on the horizon I question the value of our US dollar. No easy solutions for me. Got any ideas? Walt

Thanks, Martin, for providing opportunity to "sound off" ! I have so enjoyed my membership with you and your people. Currently value the info from Nilus (Easy St), Larry Edelson, Income Superstars most helpful. I have been on the sidelines for maybe 1 1/2 years with mostly cash, but just now am jumping back in with the help of my wonderful advisor: *tired of living on principal only! Stock Funds only (equity-income combos): 20% ( income superstars!) Fixed Income (Bond funds and equity-income funds): 43% Prec Metals 5% Cash 32% I am in my 70's and mostly retired so need to be very cautious of course. Have another CD that matures in August - what to do? I am a HUGE fan of Sir John Templeton - held for years his Templeton World Fund that worked so well. However, D Davenport's new present makes me hesitant to take notice of because I am always leary of any "new-fangled" idea or trend. I tend to stick to the oldies but goodies.

I don't have the time to recover from mistakes. My wife is 21 years younger than me and dependent on our assets. To find a safe haven we have invested about $75,000 in Gold Bullion Coins which have rato nged in prices from a High of $1,800 oz to $1,350 today. So I made another mistake - however, I believe it will bounce back in the near future - I don't see any positives for the economy. OK I HAVE SAID MY PIECE, NOW I'LL LISTEN TO YOURS!

I have a little different perspective on investing. I'm not a very good investor and I think the stock market is rigged! Therefore, I look at investing from the perspective of buying INSURANCE. It's my opinion that the Bankers and the Government are wanting to steal the remainder of my life's productivity. Afterall, they have already taken 40% of what I have produced and would like the rest. As far as stocks are concerned, it doesn't matter how good the company is, how good the products are, or how well the company is managed. The Insiders know long before we investors know where the stocks are going, and so do our Senators and Congressmen! Can you imagine Martha Stewart went to JAIL for the same thing that our Senators and Congressmen do everyday. My latest strategy has been to seek out a few people who seemingly know what they are talking about. As an example; Doug Davenport is someone I believe has a very good grasp on market issues. And, I agree with his approach, ETF's. To more accurately answer your question, here is my plan: 1.) For INSURANCE I purchased 1,000 shares of SQQQ. The reason is that if the market goes South, SQQQ goes up 3X. Therefore, I have an INSURANCE policy. 2.) I have subscribed to Inflation Survival Strategy, and like what I see. 3.) I have gathered a lot of CASH. 4.) Also, I think Larry Edelson is on top of the issues as well. 5.) Additionally, I've purchased some income producing real estate with cash. In conclusion, I believe it is just as important to be able to keep what you have worked for, as it is to invest hoping to accumulate additional wealth! The percentages of investment are all up to the private investor. It is a matter of what provides the most security for your personal situation.

Dear Dr. Weiss: I invested about $ 4,000 in penny stocks only to see them disappear. I've had success with only one stock for a modest gain. I'm so gun-shy now, I hesitate to invest anything, especially now with Obama running wild. I did subscribe to your info, but I'm still afraid to buy anything. Thanks for your interest. I wish you well.... Vince

We have 96.77% in U S Equities, which is likely to remain so for a long time. Our account has been with the same financial advisor for over twenty years. Our advisor and the company he works for ( over 175 years in business ) is very prudent and conservative. We like that approach to the equites markets. Also, the company does not pressure him to sell selected stocks or other investments. Hence, no gonzo trades are ever initiated. However, at one time, I was a Master of the Universe commodity trader which allowed me to retire at age 35 from any 9-5 job job. I was fortunate to be in the Silver market during the 70's ( I am currently writing a book on my trading insights that I gained from over eight years as a trader ) and I am looking to get back into the highly speculative commodity market again; this time in the Interest rate market. I would be happy to share some insights with your readers if they are so inclined. Please let me know.

Dear Weiss Team. I have been getting the Weiss publ. now for some time. I am enjoying them very much since I use them to get my bearing on the situation as they come. I do not have any investments in the US nor in Canada. I have very limited money,s to my name.My wife is in controll of it and she has everything sown up her way and nothing will move her to keep it her way, Banks and GIC's. She will not go of it come high hell or water. She cannot see that she is loosing most of the money which was supposed to be for our retirement do to inflation and devaluation of the dollar, Can. or US. Most likely she will tealize when it is to late. That l;ittle money what I have I have invested in silver bars and rounds. In my mind I am going back to 1945 in Germany. Money was worth nothing but if one had barter material one was ok. I have never forgotten this and I will oplay my chances with that. I do n ot have much silver but it will get my over the hump when the time comes, hopefully never but no one can know for sure. I have a little realestate and also have my survival kit just in case. I am not a prepper but I do not want to get caught with my pants down, like so many will if it happens. I like to continue to get your e mails as in the past.

I probably have not listed all of them and I feel, if the Silver coast me $30.00 and my cost with the expenses would make the Silver coast me $45.00. I feel I am in the hole for $15.00 an ounce before I can get even and I do not want to do that. Then I have been trying to get some help from the Letters I have subscribe but they promise us the world and do not even close to give us any good advise so we can have a good shot at making a little money. there was one guy from ST. AUTHORITY who had this deal on a 801k Retirement Plan, that was better than a 401K plane but he never gave us the information on it. He kept on stalling us, it was also in his next letter to us. That was 6 months ago and I am still waiting. Anthony Cortese, Palm Coast, FL

Hi Martin: I am currently about 80% invested in bonds, about 15% invested in ETF's and about 5% invested in U.S. Rare Gold Coins (I have been a coin collector for 50 years). I am afraid of gold bullion coins because the government can just declare it illawful to hold and/or trade gold (except for collector coins which have a defined universe and a precedent under the Roosevelt Administration) and gold mining stocks are very volitile and are dependent upon the mine's abilities to mine gold profitably (if the price drops so does the profit to the mine). Hope this helps. Tom

I am 67 & my wife 57; we have about 5% of our net worth invested in US stocks, mainly ETFs, that have done very poorly so we are in the "red" with them (TBT & FAZ notably). Should we "hold em" or "fold em"? We also have some EUO; it's gone down too but only 1% so plan to stay put there. We have a term annuity coming due this month and plan to buy gold with it. What is your recommendation as a "buy-signal" price? Our biggest asset is our home - paid outright; valued around $250,000 and in a highly-sought-after scenic town. No intentions to sell! Our retirement income or around $2,500 a month meets our needs with no "frills" and an emergency fund too...

Dear Dr. Weiss: I am currently invested 75% stocks, 10% corporate bonds, the balance is in annuities, both fixed rate and variable. I also own a tip. I believe that gold and silver will come back again. This market is gripped by fear! I believe as you probably believe in the law of diminished returns. The more QE that we do the less effect it will have! I believe that this market is being driven by the Bernanke bubble! Savers like myself are being penalized! Van Hyack, VanMises and Rothbart always stated that cheap money leads to malinvestments. When the stock market, bond market and dollar bubbles pop, we will be in very serious trouble. Dr. Weiss, I share your fears that when these bubbles pop, there will be shock, followed my demonstrations and then violence. Innocent people will get hurt. Since Ive retired, I have begun to study monetary policy. I have read many books on this subject. I have come to this conclusion. the world has come full circle. Mankind has bartered, we used copper and silver coins, we had a bi metallic system in the 1800's. The least imperfect monetary system is gold. It has always maintained its value. I would like to call your attention to a 44 year period of history from 1870 to 1914. During these years the world was at peace! Every country, with the exception of China was on the gold standard! China was on the silver standard. We had globalization due to the industrial revolution. Unfortunately World War1 started and our world has not been the same since. I believe that we will returnto the gold standard. It is a shame that millions of people will have to suffer the ravages of inflation before it happens. We should be mindfull that Article 1 section 8 of the Constitution calls for the True gold standard, where paper notes can be redemed for gold. We have already experimented with the Gold exchange standard which did not work. It is time that we educated our fellow citizens on the basics of this discipline. Dr. Weiss, thankyou, I have learned a lot from you. I would appreciate your comments. God Bless, Robert Calabro.

Martin, I have nothing invested. I have simply been interested and attempting to be a student. I got out of the market in 2002 and now, at this moment, I'm reminded of your advice to not invest anything I cannot afford to lose. I have enough cash, hopefully, to cover six months expenses. I had thought I would invest some of it in the hope of growing it - like the story, "$500 turn into $10,000." But now, I'm not so sure. I'm not hopeful at this point. I have some gold and silver. I have a government annuity and social security and that is my situation at the age of 80 years. My daughter is deaf and wants to go to an art workshop in Maine (she works for the VA in Cape Coral) and I want to help her and will. As far as investing, I have waited for the down turn in stocks, thinking I would buy in, but not so sure right now. I appreciate your "Money And Market" reports and "Uncommon Wisdom" each day. And, yes, I do want to continue receiving them, even though I am unsure what I will do, if anything. Thank you. Elizabeth Sither

I made good money on my investments in 1Q2013 but sold everything after the first week in April. I don't like what I'm seeing, viz. a cooling U.S. housing industry, a slight drop in GDP in China, and worst of all, an apparently accelerating economic situation in Europe where unemployment has now reached an unbelievable 12%. I also had taken a small position in GLD and made money, but felt insecure in the position and sold it out. Had I held it, I would have been swept down the tubes with the sharp drops in price just 2 days later -- whew! And Larry, who's been right about gold and silver, says not to buy it back so I won't. Frankly, I'm comfortable sitting out the market and am sleeping well again.

75% but it is an annuity which guarantees a yearly return if the market goes down and I get the upside. I don't consider this investing. It is insurance for my wife if something happens to me since I am over 70. I have been out of the market but started buying gold and silver and will invest more at current and lower values. I prefer gold miners to gold and some silver. I also think GGN is value at current levels. I have no interest in Real Estate and as an individual do not want to be a land lord.

I only invest/trade securities traded on U.S. stock exchanges but I do not limit myself to what I would call U.S. based companies nor to their stocks only. However, I have reached an age where I am moving heavily toward depending on, say, only two to four others for my investment advice. In particular, I have high hopes in your Inflation Survival Strategy. However, I am also trying to move further away from trading and more toward longer-term investment type investing. One thing I am finding very frustrating these days is dealing with "numerous" investment advisor types each with their own independent approaches and almost daily e-mail interruption to my personal life.

Hello Martin, I'm sorry to have missed your personal phone call. My husband and I took your fathers newletter for years. My husband passed away nine years ago and I continue to sign up for your newsletter. I am 82 years old, on a limited income, making sure I live within it, totally debt free. While raising a family of four kids on a very low middle income, we didn't have the resourses for much savings and while we did buy some gold coins my husband never made much of an effort to "save for the future". There are many senior citizens who did not have union jobs to assure them of an income after retirement so they depend totally on Social Security. Thankfully, I did have a union job which at the present time helps keep me independent along with my S.S. But, for how long is unsure. I am not into stocks and bonds, that is totally out of my know- how. I do have some money saved and would like to buy some silver when it drops to where the best price would be. I do not know which Company would be the best to buy from but I read your advise on these issues. Thank you for asking me this question and for listening to my answer. I pray for our great nation everyday and for people like you who are working to help us through these difficult times caused by too many politicians working for personal gain instead of for the people who elected them. God bless you, Doris Parnel

The bulk of our holdings are in two American Funds, mine Capital Income Builder (CAIBX) and my wife's Income Fund of America(AMECX), the rest of investments are in Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP) and Seadrill (SDRL) for income. We have held these funds for years and are satisfied with their performance. Our main concern is that our country is on the verge of bankruptcy due to an extraordinary debt load and when the dollar loses its power as the anchor of world currencies, interest rate increases will make our debt unsustainable. However, we are in our eighties and expect this may affect our children and grandchildren more than us. It would be a double whammy for them because they would lose our legacy assets just when they needed help the most. Countries with solid currencies could buy our assests cheap as Japan did at one time and owned much valuable real estate in the United States such as Hawaii and New York Rockerfeller Center. That happens when our dollar is just script. i.e. an IOU.

I live in Australia. Currently 5% US shares. 30% Australian shares, 65% cash. Will be changing that profile over the next month with DD's ETF recommendations. My concern is the Australian dollar to the US dollar. If the US dollar goes down and I'm in US shares, then my whealth is reduced.

The money I have in the US is only in cash, because due to the fact that I live and do business overseas, the brokerage firm which my US bank works with refused my request to do investments through them (disqualified). If you can contact me with another reliable firm I’d be happy to do business with them.

I do not invest in the US markets I only focus on local Australian Markets. My main connnection is with Larry and his focus on Gold and silver and find this valuable to say the least. I prefer local as they are much easier to follow on the ground so to speak.

About 45% stocks. Goals for remainder of year. Employ cash into stocks when markets take inevitable dips-assuming they are just dips and not the prelude to a recession. No more money into bonds now. Await the washout in gold and commodities that seems to be underway before employing cash there. Play the dollar against the commodity currencies and the euro and yen.

Last fall I was advised to go to cash by your organization. At the same time I followed all your investment advice. Since then I have missed the 2-3000 point gain in the DOW, and at the same time your investment recommendations are down about 30%. Not sure I can afford your investment advice. Mike Bemboom
