The Gold Meltdown – What Happened?
In today’s Trade School video, we’re going to be looking into what caused the recent meltdown in gold prices. How could gold drop so precipitously in such a short time, given what’s going on in the world? Did it have anything to do with the ETF GLD or was a country forced to sell its precious metals to satisfy creditors?
I will share with you how you could have systematically made money in gold using our Trade Triangle technology, which has produced some very positive results over the years.
Since 1975, there have been 13 bear markets with an average drop around 14%. This would put gold below the $1,300 level, around $1,280.
In this short 4 minute video on gold, I will illustrate the importance of having a solid game plan and a market-proven approach. We will go through each trade in gold and share with you the results of using our Trade Triangle approach from the beginning of the year.
This approach is not for everyone, but we think you will agree that the results certainly speak for themselves.

If you recall, I showed you a way to increase the income you can earn from stocks you already own.
I showed you exactly how to do that using Australia & New Zealand Bank Ltd [ASX: ANZ] shares as the example.
Of course, it’s not a completely simple solution. If it was, everyone would do it. It involves you taking some steps to educate yourself on how it works, and then putting it into practice.
As I said last week, it’s a great way to boost your income, but it’s not for everyone. And I certainly wouldn’t suggest you do it without doing the background work first.
After all, you wouldn’t drive a car without taking lessons. And a heart surgeon undergoes years of training before they’re allowed anywhere near the aorta or ventricle of a live person.
The same goes for using this income-boosting strategy — learn it first, before you try it. [Read more →]

One of the most frequent questions I’m asked goes something like this:
“I’m a newcomer to this shares lark, how do you buy shares?”
Well, let’s answer that question here.
Now, I’ve only got limited space in Money Weekend so this week I’ll give you a crash course in buying shares. And in the next Money Weekend I’ll give you a crash course in selling shares.
But, I should point out that if you become a member of one of our paid advisory services – Australian Small-Cap Investigator, Diggers & Drillers, Australian Wealth Gameplan, Sound Money Sound Investments or Slipstream Trader – you’ll receive the free e-book “How to Buy and Sell Shares for Profit”.

It’s not hard to understand the stock market rally in liquidity terms. Cash is coming off the sidelines and into shares. You saw that with an APRA report this week showing that super contributions jumped to the second-highest level ever in the 2011–2012 financial year. Super contributions totalled $117.5 billion for the year, with super assets growing by $49.6 billion to $1.4 trillion.
That’s a lot of money in the system. When it moves around and into stocks, you’re going to get a move in the markets. And because the ten largest stocks by market capitalisation make up over 50% of the ASX/200, a move into just a handful of stocks can translate into big move in the index.
The key to understand is that liquidity works both ways. When sentiment is bullish and credit is cheap, money flows into stocks. In the deflationary scenario I highlighted by reviewing John Exter’s work, liquidity flees from risky assets into safer ones. But what does that really mean? [Read more →]
