“…The equity selloff that began…[last] October is intensifying and threatens [financial] advisors, MFDA dealers and investors with a high probability of a 50-70% loss of capital and a corresponding loss of income in 2019. A decline of…[that] magnitude…[would] have devastating effects on retirement portfolios [with] many investors…not recovering in their lifetimes.”

“The final quarter…[of] 2018…[was] a textbook display of why investors must own gold…Investors who do not own monetary gold may find themselves dangerously exposed to market volatility without the much-needed diversification/portfolio insurance that gold offers. If the current downturn in the market continues, as the world’s leading financial experts predict this asset may be the only form of wealth preservation that works.
….Since late September, [as illustrated in the chart below,] gold has outperformed all traditional asset classes. This trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, as the world’s central banks seek to unwind the effects of their unprecedented and deleterious monetary policies introduced after the last financial crisis. Those who ignore what is happening right now are placing their financial well-being in harm’s way.
Experienced financial professionals understand that gold bullion is an alternative to cash. Ray Dalio, chairman of the largest hedge fund in the world (Bridgewater & Associates), once stated that, “If you don’t own gold…there is no sensible reason other than you don’t know history or you don’t know the economics of it.”
…[In addition,] the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) that sets the rules for central banks and commercial banks has stated that “monetary gold is a risk-free asset on par with US Treasuries and US dollars.”
I hold financial professionals who recommend monetary gold to their clients in the highest esteem as it is their sage advice that will protect…[their clients] from the unprecedented dangers they face today in the markets. [Can that be said for your financial advisor?]”
