Here are the latest items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. And it bears mention that most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of JWR. (SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor.) Today’s focus is on Predictions for 2018.
Precious Metals (Predictions for 2018):
First up, at Kitco: Decrypting 2018: The Outlook. (Has auto-start video.) JWR’s Comments: Any SurvivalBlog readers who has not already hedged into precious metals hasn’t been paying attention to the world around them. The stock market and the U.S. Dollar are poised for a huge break, and possibly a grandiose collapse. Hedge your way out of your Dollar-denominated investments. Small physical silver (nothing larger that 1 ounce) is still your best bet. Silver is both a hedge on the Dollar and a form of insurance to keep your family fed, in the event of a full-blown collapse. It is wise to have some silver coins on hand for barter!

These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who particularly watch individual markets. And due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” investing news. We often “get the scoop” on economic and investing news that is probably ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!
