Silver Market May be Embarking on Important Price Rally

The silver market appears to have broken upward through important resistance at $15 per ounce on the weekly and monthly charts, closing at $15.73 per troy ounce for the trading month of May 2009. On both charts, it appears silver could reach as high as the $17-$20 range, with a potential blow-off top potentially reaching the old 1980 high range at $32-$42 per ounce. This may occur in the next one to two years, perhaps much sooner.

Obama and Bernanke May Destroy the U.S. Dollar to Repay National and Foreign Debt

As the dollar begins to cascade down once again with the dollar index at 81.64, many market participants, including this writer, are coming to the conclusion that America's domestic and foreign debts will be repaid with dollars that are worth much less. Many participants agree that the U.S. Treasury bonds that we and other nations hold will end up being worth less in real terms (i.e., will be able to buy fewer goods and services), and perhaps a great deal less in future years.

The Ownership Society: Worthy Concept, Poor Execution

I am not a great believer in the governing abilities of our former President, George W. Bush, but I do think his concept of having wide swaths of Americans participate in an ownership society was a laudable goal. The concept included large numbers of Americans riding a wave of prosperity engendered through ownership in appreciating assets such as homes, businesses and retirement accounts. This was viewed as a ticket toward upward mobility. At least that was the theory.

Obama to U.S: Nobody should be Rich, and don't get Sick!

A member of the Obama team said recently on a major financial television network that the savings in the administration's budget are coming from changes in our healthcare system, and yes, from tax increases. I guess in this new world, federal spending cuts have morphed into tax increases!

The Future of the Dollar: Worth Less or Just Worthless?

The fate of a nation is often dictated by the fate of its currency, like it or not. Should there be a national and/or international loss of confidence in a country's paper currency due to the authorities' reckless fiscal and monetary policies or the inability of a country to meet its financial obligations, the currency may become almost worthless, as history has shown. In these cases, national economies have sometimes been destroyed.

Will This Stock Market Go Lower?

A long term bull or bear market in equities may last as long as 16 years, as was the case in the bear market from 1966-1982. That long term bear market included a deep 48% retrenchment in the Dow Average in 1973-1974. The market rose powerfully out of that 1974 bear market bottom, and stocks then traded in a range until the new dawn of the long term bull market beginning in August 1982 as a free market Reagan administration took over the reins of power.

Why Some Investment Managers Fail to Preserve their Clients' Wealth

Many advisors on Wall Street, including many mutual fund managers, many hedge fund managers and many bank trust departments, fail at their primary task: preserving and/or growing their clients' capital.
 
Such managers may suffer from the" institutional imperative," or "group think." This is where the players in the market may be blinded by the raw emotion (bullish or bearish) of a given market's movement or trend and act accordingly with the will of the herd.
