We are knee-deep in some MASSIVE changes coming over the next few months, but I had to stop and take a moment to share my thoughts with you regarding an email that was sent to us this week about gold, and making investment decisions…
First things first, let’s talk about the recent price declines in precious metals…
Personally, I don’t even pay attention to the price any more, which is why I haven’t bothered writing about it recently.
The fundamental reasons I own gold and silver have not gone away, and in fact they’ve only gotten stronger…
The Eurozone is crumbling as expected, and that process will only continue to accelerate.
The US continues to accumulate debt at levels never before seen in human history.
The nuclear derivative time bomb continues to flare up and remind us that it’s still out there ticking away.
The only two outcomes to all of this, are still the only two outcomes… A massive global depression unlike anything the world has ever seen if de-leveraging is allowed to take place.
Or hyperinflation if the banking system continues to paper over the debt-deleveraging by simply printing trillions upon trillions of more dollars.
Taking a look at the latest riot pictures coming out of Greece, it’s safe to say that the politicians and bankers would rather press, “print”, than look out the window at burning cars and anarchy.
I have not sold a single ounce of my gold or silver, and I will not until this process plays out. Because the US will be the last man standing, I expect that to happen here within the next three years.
In the meantime, I could care less about the price of metals. I have zero emotions about the topic. I know the reasons why I own metals, I know human and financial history, and I know the inevitable outcomes that lay ahead.
If gold and silver drop another 50%, I won’t be selling… I’ll be backing up the dump truck.
Now with that in mind, let’s talk about that email we received this week…
“First of all I would like to thank you for the top-notch content you are delivering. I’m learning a lot!
At this moment, the only issue I have is not knowing what I should do but convincing my wife to the following actions we should take.
I have 30% of my portfolio in metals but I would like to move to all-in scenario and my wife says I’m crazy. This issue is now becoming a source of discussions at home.
A future idea for our portal: “Ways to convince family members to take action”.

As we all know, I am not a Financial Advisor, so I can’t tell you what to do with your money, I can only share my opinion when it comes to my own, and investing strategy in general…
Way back in the beginning of 2008, I put around 90% of my investable cash in precious metals. There are three reasons I did that…
1. I’m a risk-taker by nature.
2. I didn’t know any better.
3. I have the skill-sets and cash-flow businesses in place that allow me to recover from mistakes made due to my ignorance and lack of experience.
I could afford to make a move like that, because I could make it all back within months because I own my ability to generate cash flow on demand through businesses.
Over the past three years, I’ve continued to diversify my asset holdings into infinite banking and cash-flow real estate… Both are vehicles strategically chosen because I expect them to do well during deflation or hyperinflation.
At this point, the % of my investments held in precious metals is probably around 50% and dropping as I’ve continued to diversify. As stated above, I’m not selling my metals, I’m just buying different assets with new funds.
If you have a job, if you’re on a fixed income, or if you simply can’t afford to lose a substantial amount of your money, I think you’d be crazy to, “put it all on black”, as you’re suggesting Nuno.
That’s a decision that someone makes based on emotion, instead of strategy and experience.
My advice is to call a Financial Advisor who understands what’s taking place around the world and the importance of precious metals, but who can also help you create a strategy that’s safe and profitable no matter what happens.
