Investors Bets $2 Billion on Stock Market Collapse

We talked a lot about where the big investor put their money that works for them. The reality is, this group represents just the 1% of the population. But it’s good to know where these groups are going to, by looking at their strategy, the 99% can learn how to at least take care our money. Remember the investments is just for this group, not for the 99%.

Lest’s check what Mr. Soros, a multibillionaire, put his money that works safety.  After this analysis, what you do for securing your money?__

Soros nearly doubled his ownership in a U.S. gold-mining companies ETF [Exchange-traded fund] and initiated new stakes in other gold producers, suggesting the big names in hedge funds continued to have confidence in the yellow metal, Reuters reports.

Soros Fund Management increased its stake in Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF to 2.05 million shares valued at $54 million at the end of the second quarter, compared with 1.16 million shares in the first quarter.

“Gold-mining stocks are considered relatively cheap. It also suggests that Soros may be thinking gold prices are near the bottom of the range,” Bill O’Neill, partner at commodities investment firm LOGIC Advisors in New Jersey, told Reuters.

Soros also initiated new gold investments including 1.33 million shares in call options of the Gold Miners ETF valued at $35 million, and 1 million equity shares in Allied Nevada Gold Corp.

Meanwhile, Soros slashed his stake in Barrick Gold Corp. by more than 90 percent to less than half a million shares valued at just $8.8 million in the second quarter after boosting ownership of the gold miner in the first quarter.

Gold has become increasingly attractive to hedge-fund managers who are long-term investors as real interest rates remain negative,” said Axel Merk, a Moneynews Insider and chief investment officer of the $400 million Merk Funds, a family of currency mutual funds and the Merk Gold Trust, a gold ETF.

Investors have stayed away from the metal amid mounting speculation that the Federal Reserve will increase its benchmark lending rate. The central bank reduced its monthly bond-buying program to $25 billion on July 30, making a sixth consecutive $10 billion cut, while it held borrowing costs near zero percent.

Goldman Sachs last month repeated its prediction that gold will drop to $1,050 in 12 months. The bank cited accelerating U.S. economic growth. Friday, gold fell 0.9 percent to $1,304.30 an ounce, paring an earlier decline of 1.7 percent.

Speculators decreased bets on a gold rally by 15 percent to 104,111 futures and options in the week ended Aug. 5, the biggest drop in two months, U.S. government data show.

Money managers who oversee more than $100 million in equities must file a Form 13-F within 45 days of each quarter’s end to list their U.S.-traded stocks, options and convertible bonds. The filings don’t show non-U.S. securities or how much cash the firms hold.

Investors pay close attention to the quarterly filings because they provide the best insight into whether the so-called smart money has changed its sentiment toward gold as a hedge against inflation and economic uncertainty.

However, rival money managers cautioned against putting too much weight into what is apparently a pessimistic view of U.S. stocks, given that Soros Fund Management may simply be looking for a hedge to counterbalance its many long stock positions.

“Hedge fund stocks have really gotten destroyed in the last three weeks,” one long-short stock manager told CNBC. “We’re in a difficult time here.”

In September 1992, Soros made at least $2 billion on his shorting of the English pound forced the Bank of England to devalue the currency and leave the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM).

__So, now we know Mr. Soros will be going to secure his money with Gold, what are you going to do?
Let me suggest a simple strategy: exchange your money for gold too, but more simple, start with 1 gram at the time, no investments, no ETF, no Brokers fees, and no risk.

Take your gold in your hands, like the countries, the billionaires, the rich and the smart people that don’t trust in their fiat currency.

10 Ways Rich People Think Differently

bill-gates-2

Microsoft cofounder and chairman Bill Gates, who is consistently ranked as one of the richest people in the world, speaks at the 2013 Microsoft shareholders meeting.

If you ask Thomas Corley, being rich has very little to do with luck and everything to do with habits.
Corley, who spent five years monitoring and analyzing the daily activities and habits of people both wealthy and living in poverty (233 wealthy and 128 poor, specifically), isolated what he calls “rich habits” — and many of them are simply patterns of thought.

“I found in my research that wealthy people are by and large optimists,” he says. “They practice gratitude and look at happiness like a habit.”

Corley, who presents and explains many of his findings in his book “Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals” and on his website, defines “rich people” as those with an annual income of $160,000 or more and a liquid net worth of $3.2 million or more, and “poor people” as those with an annual income of $35,000 or less and a liquid net worth of $5,000 or less.

Here are 10 ways Corley found that rich people think differently, based on statements with which they identify.

habits exercise

1. Rich people believe their habits have a major impact on their lives.
“Daily habits are critical to financial success in life.”
Rich people who agree: 52%
Poor people who agree: 3%

Wealthy people think that bad habits create detrimental luck and that good habits create “opportunity luck,” meaning they create the opportunities for people to make their own luck. “When I looked at luck,” Corley remembers, “a lot of rich people said they were lucky and a lot of poor people said they were unlucky.”

2. Rich people believe in the American dream.
“The American dream is no longer possible.”
Rich people who agree: 2%
Poor people who agree: 87%

“The American Dream is the idea of unlimited potential, that you can make it on your own,” says Corley. In his study, the vast majority of rich people believed that wealth is a big part of the American dream (94%), and that the dream is still possible.

3. Rich people value relationships for professional and personal growth.

“Relationships are critical to financial success.”
Rich people who agree: 88%
Poor people who agree: 17%

Not only do rich people feel that their relationships are critical to their success, but they put a lot of effort into maintaining them, making a habit of calling up contacts to congratulate them on life events, wish them a happy birthday, or reaching out just to say hello. “When I applied the hello calls and the life event calls to my own life,” recalls Corley, “I ended up making another $60,000 as a result.”

habits of wealthy people

4. Rich people love meeting new people.
“I love meeting new people.”
Rich people who agree: 68%
Poor people who agree: 11%

Hand in hand with valuing relationships comes making new ones. Rich people both love meeting new people and believe that being liked is important to financial success (in fact, it’s a whopping 95% that believe in the power of likability, compared to 9% of poor people).

5. Rich people think that saving is hugely important.
“Saving money is critical to financial success.”
Rich people who agree: 88%
Poor people who agree: 52%

“Being wealthy is not just making a lot of money,” explains Corley. “It’s saving a lot, and accumulating wealth. Many of the people I studied aren’t wealthy because they made a lot, but because they saved a lot.” He’s trying to instill what he calls the 80/20 rule in his own children: Save 20% of your income while living on 80%.

Gold savings_patrickiturra.com

6. Rich people feel that they determine their path in life.
“I believe in fate.”
Rich people who agree: 10%
Poor people who agree: 90%

Poor people are significantly more likely to believe that genetics are important to becoming wealthy, and significantly less likely to believe that they’re the cause of their own financial status in life. “Most of the wealthy people I talked to were businesspeople who weren’t always wealthy,” Corley explains, “but they had this attitude that they could do anything.”

7. Rich people value creativity over intelligence.
“Creativity is critical to financial success.”
Rich people who agree: 75%
Poor people who agree: 11%

While rich people are more likely to believe that creativity influences success, poor people are more likely to think that being “intellectually gifted” is critical. They’re also more likely to believe that wealth is usually accidental. “If you look at my stats, you’ll find that a lot of wealthy people were C students,” says Corley. “There’s more to wealth than just being smart.”

Richard-Branson

8. Rich people enjoy their jobs.
“I like (or liked) what I do for a living.”
Rich people who agree: 85%
Poor people who agree: 2%

“Many of the wealthy in my study loved their job — it’s not an accident,” says Corley. In fact, 86% of the wealthy worked an average of 50 hours or more per week (compared to 43% of the poor), and 81% say they do more than their job requires (versus 17%). Corley says it’s related to the idea of creativity being important to financial success: “These people found a creative pursuit that could turn into monetary value. When you engage in a creative pursuit that can make money, the rewards are often obscene.”

9. Rich people believe that their health influences their success.
“Good health is critical to financial success.”
Rich people who agree: 85%
Poor people who agree: 13%

“One of the individuals in my study told me ‘I can’t make money in a hospital bed,'” Corley remembers. “Wealthy people think that being healthy means fewer sick days, which translates into more productivity and more money.”

rich people planing

10. Rich people are willing to take risks.
“I’ve taken a risk in search of wealth.”
Rich people who agree: 63%
Poor people who agree: 6%

“A lot of the wealthy people in the study were business owners who started their own businesses,” Corley explains. “They became successes because they were master self-educators who learned from the school of hard knocks.” In fact, 27% of the wealthy people in Corley’s study admit they’ve failed at least once in life or in business, compared with 2% of the poor. “Failure is like scar tissue on the brain,” Corley says. “The lessons last forever.”

9 Things Rich People Do Differently Every Day

flying-wealthy

What you do today matters. In fact, your daily habits may be a major determinant of your wealth.

“The metaphor I like is the avalanche,” says Thomas Corley, the author of “Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals.” “These habits are like snowflakes — they build up, and then you have an avalanche of success.”

Corley spent five years studying the lives of both rich people (defined as having an annual income of $160,000 or more and a liquid net worth of $3.2 million or more) and poor people (defined as having an annual income of $35,000 or less and a liquid net worth of $5,000 or less).

He managed to segment out what he calls “rich habits” and “poverty habits,” meaning the tendencies of those who fit in each group. But, Corley explains, everyone has some rich habits and some poverty habits. “The key is to get more than 50% to be rich habits,” he says.

And what are those rich habits that are so influential? Here are a few:

yoga_pants_generic2

1. Rich people always keep their goals in sight.
“I focus on my goals every day.”
Rich people who agree: 62%
Poor people who agree: 6%

Not only do wealthy people set annual and monthly goals, but 67% of them put those goals in writing. “It blew me away,” says Corley. “I thought a goal was a broad objective, but the wealthy said a wish is not a goal.” A goal is only a goal, he says, if it has two things: It’s achievable, and there’s a physical action you can take to pursue it.

2. And they know what needs to be done today.
“I maintain a daily to-do list.”
Rich people who agree: 81%
Poor people who agree: 19%

Not only do the wealthy keep to-do lists, but 67% of them complete 70% or more of those listed tasks each day.

3. They don’t watch TV.
“I watch TV one hour or less per day.”
Rich people who agree: 67%
Poor people who agree: 23%

Similarly, only 6% of the wealthy watch reality shows, compared to 78% of the poor. “The common variable among the wealthy is how they make productive use of their time,” explains Corley. “They wealthy are not avoiding watching TV because they have some superior human discipline or willpower. They just don’t think about watching much TV because they are engaged in some other habitual daily behavior — reading.”

4. They read … but not for fun.
“I love reading.”
Rich people who agree: 86%
Poor people who agree: 26%

Sure, rich people love reading, but they favor nonfiction — in particular, self-improvement books. “The rich are voracious readers on how to improve themselves,” says Corley. In fact, 88% of them read for self-improvement for 30 minutes each day, compared to 2% of poor people.

5. Plus, they’re big into audio books.
“I listen to audio books during the commute to work.”
Rich people who agree: 63%
Poor people who agree: 5%

Even if you aren’t into audiobooks, you can make the most of your commute with any of these commute-friendly self-improvement activities.

6. They make a point of going above and beyond at the office.
“I do more than my job requires.”
Rich people who agree: 81%
Poor people who agree: 17%

It’s worth noting that while 86% of rich people (compared to 43% of poor) work an average of 50 or more hours a week, only 6% of the wealthy people surveyed found themselves unhappy because of work.

7. They aren’t hoping to win the jackpot.
“I play the lottery regularly.”
Rich people who agree: 6%
Poor people who agree: 77%

That’s not to say that the wealthy are always playing it safe with their money. “Most of these people were business owners who put their own money on the table and took financial risks,” explains Corley. “People like this aren’t afraid to take risks.”

8. They watch their waistline.
“I count calories every day.”
Rich people who agree: 57%
Poor people who agree: 5%

Wealthy people value their health, says Corley. “One of the individuals in my study was about 68 and worth about $78 million. I asked why he didn’t retire, and he looked at me like I was from Mars. He said, ‘I’ve spent the last 45 years exercising every single day and watching what I eat because I knew the end of my career would be my biggest earning years.’ If he can extend his career four to five years beyond everyone else, that’s about $7 million for him.”

9. And they take care of their smiles.
“I floss every day.”
Rich people who agree: 62%
Poor people who agree: 16%

Private Issue Global Gold Currency Revealed

Why wait for governments when the Free Market can fix the currency crisis itself? Dan Girolmo, a Karatbars Gold Director Elite joins Gary Franchi to roll out the worlds first private issue international Gold Currency.

 

Fiat money is, of course, “fake” money. It is printed on paper, and secured by no real collateral. Commodity money is the opposite. It is still printed on paper, but is usually secured by collateral of some kind (usually gold ie: the gold standard).

Most fiat money is actually secured by the issuing government’s ability to keep its currency stable. This is how America operates it’s currency. It keeps its value based solely on the American government’s ability to not screw it up. It allows for much easier manipulation of the currency, but can be risky during economic turmoil (like right now).  [Commodity Money vs. Fiat Money]

Wall Street concerned over China’s gold hoarding

China-Gold

If you are the type of person that thinks “when the gold price is going down” its not time to “invest” in this precious metal, then maybe you will be actually waiting for the price will to go up to sale. Check out  what the major investment bank in China does when the price goes down.

The People’s Bank of China, China’s central bank, is the world’s biggest gold hoarder and the bane of Wall Street traders, reports the Chinese-language financial news website BwChinese, citing a Hong Kong financial analyst.

Leung Hai-ming told the portal that China’s central bank took advantage of the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program in 2013, when the price of gold fell by 27%. The bank bought in over 1,000 tonnes of gold, representing almost one third of the world’s 3,756 tonnes last year.

goldcore_bloomberg_chart2_09-12-13

There is reportedly less than 180,000 tonnes of gold reserves left, and only 20% of that remaining gold is tradable. This means that the People’s Bank of China will likely keep hold of the gold, limiting the gold trading volume — a concern for both the US government and Wall Street traders.

Leung said that the US Federal Reserve loans gold to investment banks such as Goldman Sachs, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and others every year to trade in the market. The amount of gold ranges between 400-500 tonnes and the move acts to artificially suppress gold prices. When the prices are in their favor, these investment banks buy back the gold and return it to the Fed.

But this measure is absolutely useless because China’s is hoarding the gold and does not follow the rules, Leung said. When it sees that gold prices are going down, the first thing it does is buy them, and does not sell when prices continue to fall. It seems that Wall Street cannot do anything to counter China on this, according to Leung.

The analyst said that the People’s Bank of China is putting pressure on Washington and Wall Street as the US dollar has been linked with gold prices since its rise as the leading global currency. The Fed hopes to manipulate gold prices in its favor, Leung said, but the Chinese central bank is standing in its way.

The 99% of the population has to understand to “protect” the money that already earn. Take a chance of the lowered price and buy 1 gram at a time…. on your own time, no obligations, free account and be ready for the new monetary policy.

7 traits the millionaires have in common

billionairesAmassing wealth without a trust fund is no easy feat. There isn’t a magic recipe for making millions, but certain ingredients can help.

Hard work, education, smart investing, frugality, risk taking, and plain ol’ luck were some of the main factors ultra-high-net-worth investors used to describe themselves when surveyed by the Spectrem Group.

Entrepreneurial: Going into business is a common path among the wealthy. While there are plenty of doctors, lawyers and corporate executives in the $5 million-plus group surveyed by Spectrem, those who go on to become business owners tend to build an even higher net worth.

Always on the clock: The 40-hour work week is like a part-time schedule for many, especially those who have built businesses. A 60- to 80-hour work week is more the norm, as are working vacations, according to certified financial planner Doug Flynn of Flynn Zito Capital Management.

High energy: Many high-net-worth individuals have a lot of energy, don’t need much sleep, and enjoy generally upbeat attitudes, according to psychologist James Gottfurcht, who runs Los Angeles-based Psychology of Money Consultants.

The super wealthy also tend to be visionaries, said psychologist Kristen Armstrong, a strategic wealth coach at Ascent Private Capital Management. She described many of her clients as “force of nature” people.

040927_branson_hmed_930a.grid-6x2
Billionaire moguls Richard Branson

“I see again and again that they have a really great ability to envision possible futures … [and] an amazing ability to focus their efforts and energy once they see a possibility.”

Extremely confident: Gottfurcht said most of his clients who made their wealth possess what he calls an “expansive, healthy grandiosity.” By that he means a sense of “I can do anything.”
They’re also open to creative ways of achieving their goals.
Armstrong, too, said her clients have great confidence in themselves and others, and firmly believe the world will accommodate their business ideas.
Also common, though, among some of Gottfurcht’s wealthiest clients is what he termed “narcissistic personality disorder.” That is, they think they’re special, “require excessive admiration,” have a high sense of entitlement and lack empathy for others, he said.

Discerning: For all their confidence, Armstrong’s clients know they’re not the smartest person in the room on every given issue. But they know to surround themselves with people who are — which will help them realize their vision.
Among business owners, those who do best are the ones who move past sole proprietorship, and partner with others to expand their enterprises, said Flynn.

Modest: Despite glamorous Hollywood portrayals of the rich life, many multi-millionaires live more modestly. Most of Flynn’s richest clients have chosen not to bump up their lifestyles in lockstep with their growing wealth.

“They still wear their old plaid shirt,” he said. Or at least the men do.
Risk tolerant, but not impulsive: Anyone who runs a business is by nature a risk taker, Flynn noted. But there are no investing swashbucklers among his clients.
They have some short-term investments but tend to have a longer time horizon than most investors. Whether they invest in a stock or a building, they stick with it as long as it still makes sense to them.
But they won’t go all in on one bet, according to Flynn.

“There’s always the guy who bets it all on something, gets lucky and then gets out. But that’s not the recipe for most people,” Flynn said

credit money vs commodity money

commodity moneyMost people believe that interest is natural to money. However, the way in which money is created determines whether interest is applicable or not.

Two forms of money creation have dominated over the last 5000 years — creating money out of credit and creating money out of gold or silver – with humanity going back and forth between centuries-long domination of credit money and centuries-long domination of gold and silver-backed money.

Credit money is newly created on the back of borrowers’ creditworthiness. It is debt obligations enforced by civil law and backed by provisions for bad debt. Since credit money is legal agreements that require only paper and inexpensive credit risk insurance to create, credit money doesn’t have to be borrowed from anyone and therefore doesn’t attract interest – credit money is interest-free.

On the other hand, gold-backed money cannot be created as required by the demands of trade – the supply of gold-backed money is limited to the amount of gold in the world. Therefore there’s not enough for everyone to trade their goods and services with. Those that are short of gold-backed money have to borrow it from the few that hold the world’s gold-backed money and pay them interest for doing so. Gold-backed money bears interest.

The amount of credit money created matches what borrowers can afford and hence matches the amount of goods and services traded in the economy. Credit money is also backed by provisions for bad debt. Therefore the creation of credit money does not contribute to inflation. The gold supply, on the other hand, has no relation to the amount of goods and services traded in the economy. Gold-backed money is therefore inflationary and deflationary.

Many centuries ago, when taxes became payable in gold and interest-free credit money was outlawed, we were forced to abandon interest-free credit money and use interest-bearing gold-backed money instead. Those that were short of money now had to borrow it at interest from the few that held the gold supply instead of creating it interest-free and inflation-free. Once the generations forgot that we were forced to start using a form of money that continually and unreasonably Transfers Wealth, through the mechanism of interest, from the vast majority to a wealthy minority, we accepted interest as being natural to money and believed interest-bearing money to be the only option.

Although banks haven’t used gold-backed money since the 1930’s and only use credit money, we still pay interest on credit money even though it’s mathematically illogical. The seeming complexity of our banking system — called the fractional reserve banking system – obscures the fact that banks do not effectively lend out deposit holders’ money but issue borrowers with newly-created credit money. 500 years of gold-backed money has apparently conditioned society to believe that interest-bearing money is the only option and that interest is due on the money lent out by banks.

Banks are not in the business of lending out deposit holders’ deposits, as society purports them to be, but are actually credit clearing houses that clear our credit money of credit risk. In exchange for this service banks should only receive a credit risk insurance premium and an administration fee but on top of this banks charge interest to pay over to deposit holders.

Luckily it’s again legal for people to create their own credit money systems. As long as we pay our taxes in our interest-bearing official currencies. The only significant interest-free credit money system in place in the world today is one in Switzerland which is used by 25% of all Swiss businesses. No wonder Switzerland has had one of the most stable economies in the world since a group of Swiss businesses created this interest-free credit money system in the 1930’s to help themselves out of the Great Depression.
