The Universal Laws of Success

What if we were in the midst of a gold rally, and no one was talking about it? Now that gold is up 7-8% over the last few months, Dan sheds light on why the uptick is so unreported, going largely unmentioned by mainstream media like The Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. Dan thinks the answer lies in the aftermath of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting, and the dovish interpretation that prevailed. Clearly, the Fed is now thinking about supporting asset prices, now that their stated objectives of reaching full employment have already been met. Of course, that has some inevitable consequences. “If you screw with the market this long, the market says, “Uncle, Uncle!” And you gotta have some gold.”

How to Invest for a Recession

Dan launches into this week’s episode dissecting the warning from billionaire investor Ray Dalio, who’s saying there’s significant risk of a recession in 2020 – not just in the U.S., but a global slowdown. While no one can tell the future, there is one grim statistic on Dan’s mind that doesn’t dispute this claim.  He then introduces this week’s podcast guest, Christopher Irons.  Christopher started writing about finance and "pulling the curtain" back on the B.S. of the industry under his moniker Quoth the Raven in 2013. Since then, he has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and Barron's, has made Seeking Alpha's list of Top Bloggers, Forbes' 100 Twitter Accounts in the Financial World to Follow, and has shared the stage as a speaker with acclaimed investors David Einhorn, Andrew Left, Ben Axler, Jon Najarian and many others. He's got a firm opinion on Tesla – and a prediction on exactly how the stock’s downfall will come about. And he’s not shy about calling another household name “fraudulent.”  In fact, Christopher is known for his blistering analysis behind shorting companies, starting with the first presentation Dan ever saw of his, titled “Short the Whole $%#@*&$ Thing.”
