Today, in Episode 15 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss evidence that we are living in a computer simulation, using research by Carl Sagan, the topics of the pursuit of happiness, academics v. education, critical thinking, self-education and anecdotal tales of business school, martial arts training, and pop culture references of Charlie Chaplin, The Truman Show, and The Staggering Depths of Blissfulness. If you listen to this podcast, you will also discover a hidden gem about where gold and silver asset prices are heading, with spot price lows of about $1,160 an ounce for gold and $14.30 an ounce for silver recently established.

Today, in Episode 14 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the philosophical question of whether or not we are actually any more free than the prisoners of Plato’s Cave even though the vast majority of us have freedom of choice. It is not the lack of options in our lives that make us live less than free lives, but the fact that most of us ignore the options in life that provide us the most freedom while living our entire lives within very limited choices of societal constructs that have been pre-constructed and pre-engineered to control us.

Improve Your Life Immediately By Eliminating this One Huge Time and Energy Waster | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_013

August 20th, 2018
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Today, in Episode 13 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the one massive time and energy waster in which nearly all of us engage on a daily basis. Simply eliminating or vastly reducing this aspect from our lives is the easiest way to free up time so that we may reach our life potential and maximize our happiness. As odd as this sounds, sustainable happiness in life requires discipline to achieve.

The most time and energy wasting task is not only a time waster, but it also stunts our intellectual growth, our creative development, and our sense of community with others, an aspect of life that is essential to avoid depression. So eliminating this one huge time waster not only will increase our productivity, but it will also massively improve our happiness and life while eliminating large portions of anxiety and depression.

The 3 Elements to Live a Fearless, Valuable Life | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_012

August 20th, 2018
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Today, in Episode 12 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the 3 elements necessary to live a fearless, valuable life – community, self-education, and love. I elaborate on why those in power economically and politically in all nations are so intent on ensuring that these 3 elements are missing from all of our lives, the tactics deployed by them to ensure their absence in our lives, and the steps we can take to ensure that we embrace these elements and live a unique life distinct from the rest of society. To listen to “3 Elements to Live a Fearless, Valuable Life” as well as to subscribe to our podcast to be notified of future Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcasts, please click here.
I cover (1) the distinctions between schooling and education, (2) the reasons why no one should ever become a parent without these three elements, and (3) the reasons why these 3 elements alone are not enough to produce a memorable life full of a state of flow and harmony, but require a deeply understood and conceived moral framework to accompany them.

Bitcoin, Gold, Silver, US Markets, Emerging Markets, Education Reform: Here’s a Sneak Peak into our Patron Only skwealthacademy Content

July 19th, 2018
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

After nearly 13 years of producing free content on this blog and youtube, we finally had to give in and start a patreon account at www.patreon.com/skwealthacademy due to  persistent censorship and demonetization issues. We also will be posting very shortly under skwealthacademy at steemit.com so make sure to check us out there as well.

In the meantime, although our patreon account is only a few weeks old, here is a list of the Patron only content already available to new skwealthacademy patrons, from newest content to oldest content (though the oldest is only a couple of weeks old). All of the below content is accessible to Patrons at the above link.

skwealthacademy podcast: After Its Surge Over $7,500, Where Does BTC Head From Here? And What’s in Store For Gold and Silver Prices After Persistent Summer Weakness?
In this podcast, just released on 19 July, I discuss the implication of the latest BTC price surge on prices for the remainder of the year as well as the likely direction of gold and silver prices after this persistent summer price weakness (which I correctly predicted would happen in June and July).

skwealthacademy podcast: An Exploration of Confirmation Bias through the Syrian ConflictIn this podcast, I explore the concept of confirmation bias, to which all of us fall victim to various degrees, through the often emotionally biased lens of war and nationalism. Without understanding our vulnerability to confirmation bias and how this psychological weapon is used against us in financial markets, we will never be able to make intelligent investment decisions.

skwealthacademy podcast: What Are Plunging Emerging Market Stock Markets & Currencies Forecasting for the Future of Developed Markets?In this podcast, I look underneath the surface and discuss what emerging market frailty in 2018 is predicting for the future of developed markets.

skwealthacademy article: Understanding Why Bitcoin Has Lost 70% of Its Price This YearThis article, was released to patrons, of course when BTC was challenging the $6,000 resistance level. This very lengthy article explores all the reasons, often never challenged and almost never discussed anywhere in the mainstream media, for BTC’s decline from its high of $20,000.

skwealthacademy podcast: Two Questions that Illustrate the Flaws of Modern SchoolingThis is a look at the real mission of institutional academics that originated due to the need of industrialists for obedient worker to fill their factories during the Industrial Revolution, and the evolution of the institutional classroom setting to still fulfill this need, but in a setting in which the factories have transformed into warehouses, manufacturing plants, and global corporate offices. I discuss how critical thought has been stripped out of the classroom in this podcast.

Orwellian DoubleSpeak is Making the Public Apathetic to the Next Global Financial Crisis on the Horizon | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_11

July 18th, 2018
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Today, my podcast is an exercise in critical thinking as I examine why the mainstream media’s embrace of Orwellian DoubleSpeak has created (1) mass public ignorance of the root causes of the 2008 global financial crisis, (2) a mistaken belief that massively price distorted bubbles (the bubbles of everything) are sustainable “growth”; and (3) apathy to the severe dangers already in existence beneath the surface of the global financial system, that will soon manifest in a more severe phase 2 of the 2008 global financial crisis, not just in emerging markets but in developed markets as well.

Why the “Gold is Ready to Explode Higher Any Day” Narrative Hurts the Truth Movement About Gold

May 21st, 2018
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

I have long lamented the incessantly click-bait “gold ready to explode higher any day” and “silver ready to explode higher any day” headlines that torment the precious metals community frequently throughout most years.  I have always kept hedging strategies in anticipation of these large price raids, and notification of bottom price targets and notifications of reversals in prices exclusive to my clients, though I certainly have released my share of general warnings about lower prices in opposition to those have called for imminent breakouts higher on my blog here and through my various social media (skwealthacademy) channels, most recently calling for lower gold and silver prices on the way on my SnapChat channel (skwealthacademy) before rising prices could be sustained.

The unfortunate part of click-bait gold and silver headlines is that they almost never come true and they raise serious skepticism about other solid information such websites that release such click-bait type of headlines generate, especially regarding the manipulation of PM prices lower by pro-petrodollar, anti-gold, anti-sound money Central Bankers. Consequently, it is of my opinion that such click-bait gold and silver price headlines perform massive damage to the understanding of reality and truth about gold and silver prices in the precious metals community as they erode all confidence about other articles that promote truth (even ones that appear on the same website).

To begin, such headlines have almost zero beneficial impact to anyone, as exact breakout dates of gold/silver prices are notoriously difficult, if not impossible, to predict. Thus, the release of articles that gold/silver price breakouts will happen “any day” is almost guaranteed to compel wrong decisions that lead to losses by the type of naïve investors that place all their faith in such articles. Secondly, there is nothing wrong with articles that state that consolidation patterns are forming that point to higher prices in the intermediate term with no implication that a massive breakout is on its way in just days or a couple of weeks. Many click-bait gold and silver articles are clever enough to never name a specific date while implying that the breakout is just days to a couple of weeks away. And these are the ones that perpetually damage the truth movement in gold and silver to the point where one can show GATA discovered documents whereby bankers make admissions of manipulating gold prices lower, show them to a skeptic, and still have a skeptic dismiss them as rubbish.

This is the result of a brainwashing process that ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmeanov elucidated, whereby one could drag a skeptic of government-committed atrocities to a gulag, show the skeptic dead bodies and solid evidence of these atrocities, and the result would be the skeptic claiming that the whole scene was fabricated, with dead bodies flown to the site by those that wanted to fool him into rebuking his loyalty to the State. So this is my sincere request for all those in the gold and silver community to cease writing such click-bait headlines as we need to eradicate all these type of articles if we really want to properly prepare people for the time when the bubble of everything (BOE) collapses. This is not a call to eradicate any articles whereby opinions are provided, as everyone, including yours truly, has been wrong about intermediate-term predictions in the past, as it is humanly impossible to have a 100% positive track record. However, this is a call to eradicate all articles in the gold and silver community about specific price predictions with specific dates, as those types of articles are near guaranteed to be 100% wrong, and to eradicate all articles with sensational headlines, as those types of articles are nearly 100% guaranteed to lead green investors into bad decisions. Even if one 100% believed that a higher breakout of gold/silver prices is “imminent” within days, a better way to write such articles to protect against the possibility of such events not materializing, as is the case almost all the time, is to caution against excessive optimism until the breakout has been confirmed.

And in response to the recent wave about imminently higher gold and silver prices, here is a warning for those positioned for an imminent breakout. My own analysis shows that there is a strong possibility for further significant falls in gold prices, which would likely drag silver prices down further as well, before the big breakout happens. Will this prediction be right? Again, this is just my opinion as of 21 May, when gold prices are at $1,290 an ounce and silver prices are $16.42 an ounce as I write this sentence. For those of you that follow me on Snapchat, even as silver prices rose at the end of last week in contradiction to falling gold prices, my Snapchat followers know that I warned that intraday spikes higher in silver and gold prices were likely temporary, with the bottom not yet in, before the big downward spike in gold prices happened last week. However, as I re-assess my position every day based upon further data, this is my opinion as of right now, and it could change or be reinforced further based upon additional data over the next few days (and I will inform my clients as such). Sometimes, downward falling gold and silver prices can quickly reach a bottom, and on occasion, violent reversals in PM prices do happen from a bottom. Still, you won’t find me predicting crashes to $1,200 gold or $10 silver or parabolic rises to $10,000 gold or $100 silver, because sensational predictions to the downside serve about as much purpose as sensational click-bait headlines to the upside. Besides driving traffic to the upside, they provide little to no education about the future of gold and silver prices.

Before I end this article, I want to state that 1 100% believe that manipulation lower of gold and silver prices is real, with manipulation to the upside occasionally taking place as well, though manipulation lower is far more common. If manipulation was not real, then YouTube/Google likely would not have censored my YouTube channel to the point where they choked off nearly all views on my channel from 20,000+ views per video with less than 15,000 subscribers to just a few hundred views per video even though my subscriber base more than doubled to 30,000 subscribers. Secondly, Google wouldn’t have refused to pay me my rightfully earned substantial accumulation of thousands of dollars of Google Ad revenues on this very blog years ago (after which I removed Google Ads from this website) while refusing to answer of my inquiries demanding an explanation for their decision had this blog not contained information that threatened their world order. But have no fear, I will continue to upload more content on Steemit and D-Tube as well as my The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, which you can find on iTunes, in the near future. Remember, all, even though people with money will always try to silence the truth, we have different avenues open to us to pursue and we don’t need to stay on Twitter, Google, YouTube, and Facebook to address our audience. In fact, we shouldn’t.

2017 Global Physical Gold and Silver Demand: A Fact Vs. Propaganda Update

October 11th, 2017
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Recently, the western banking cartel media has been out in full force to mislead everyone regarding a narrative of falling and “soft” demand for physical gold and physical silver, as they typically frame the market in the US as representative of the global market when this is patently false. Furthermore, the usual suspects, like Goldman Sachs bankers, have piled on to this misinformation by calling for a plunge in gold prices, but more on that later. First let’s discuss the misleading statistics being disseminated by the mainstream financial media regarding physical gold and physical silver demand. Last month Reuters reported plummeting silver Eagle coin sales for Q3 at 3.7 million ounces, and attempted to frame weak US physical silver demand as weak overall silver demand by calling the silver coins data “the lowest in 10 years”. Furthermore, they attempted to frame physical gold demand as weak by referring to the Q3 2017 American gold eagle coins sales of 38,500 ounces as a 80% plunge from the same quarter, prior year. If you were to read just this one article to gauge physical gold and physical silver demand worldwide, you would likely believe that demand was dead and that no one was interested in buying physical gold or silver anymore, as the Reuters journalist literally provided zero context to these numbers. As I’ve repeatedly stated for the past 10 years, anyone can use statistics to present a biased and false picture of reality by stripping presented data of any context. This is precisely what the Reuters journalist did.

Furthermore, Bloomberg hopped on the “no one wants to buy physical gold and physical silver” Reuters bandwagon as well with a similar narrative of gloomy gold demand by reporting last week that “sales of gold coins [in the United States] in the first nine months of the year shrank to the lowest in a decade.” As well, various mainstream US financial websites prominently reported that demand for US Mint produced gold bullion has fallen off a cliff this year, with the first 5-months of 2017 only generating 185,500 ounces of gold sales, yielding a projected 2017 annual figure of only 445,200 AuOzs sold.

What to Expect From the FOMC Meeting Today

September 20th, 2017
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

In my last newsletter, which you can subscribe to here, I stated that one should not be misled by the immediate gold and silver price movements that result from the geopolitical instability around North Korea, as the intra-day volatility in gold and silver prices caused by geopolitics will not change either the short-term price trends or long-term gold and silver price behavior that is ultimately still decided by the global currency wars and the crumbling purchasing power of major global currencies like the US dollar, Euro and Yen. I also mentioned that “since inception of our CIO newsletter, our CIO newsletter portfolio has still easily outperformed the S&P500 by nearly 20% and our benchmark XAU Gold and Silver Index by more than 140% over this multi-year period. To accomplish this, we have not been blindly bullish gold and silver every year, but have been bearish gold and silver assets [when appropriate] and [have] taken appropriate hedges when needed to guard against downturns in gold and silver asset prices.”

Though I speak of general trends in this newsletter, I supply specific strategies to my subscribing members of my CIO newsletter and Platinum membership, and two things I spoke of in the last newsletter came to fruition in my subscription memberships. Last week, we locked in gains on some PM mining stocks and opened up some hedges that would rise in price in the event gold and silver prices fell, as I felt a short-term downward trend in gold and silver was about to happen. Both turned out to be solid moves as the PM (precious metal) mining stocks we sold have since dropped in price and our hedges have risen in price in significant amounts for a one-week timeframe.

Gold and Silver: False or True Breakout?

August 29th, 2017
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailby feather

Here’s what I had to say about spot silver prices a few weeks ago in my free newsletter (you can sign up for it here): “Silver [was] smashed considerably lower than $15.68 to $14.34, but that smash, as I had predicted, literally only lasted but for a New York minute, as most of the smash from above $16.00 an ounce to $14.34 was literally regained in just a few minutes.” And since then, silver has risen from that smash low of $14.34 by a whopping 22.2% in less than two months to its current price of $17.52 as I write this sentence. I also wrote in these free newsletters that interest in gold and silver assets, due to cryptocurrency price spikes, are at lows that rival the lack of interest during the 2008 financial crisis, when Central Bankers smashed gold lower than $700 an ounce and silver to sub $9 an ounce prices. I stated a month ago that the extreme level of disinterest in gold and silver assets, given their wealth preservation qualities that have withstood centuries of time and the current escalation of the global currency war, was quite ludicrous. I further stated that the low prices of gold and silver assets were a bargain that everyone was overlooking, and continue to overlook today, given the instability of the global fiat currency system and due to the ongoing mania in cryptocurrency prices. And I still believe that gold and silver asset prices will boom in the coming future, even though many previous gold and silver bugs have completely given up on gold and silver and even mistakenly traded in their ENTIRE physical gold and silver stacks for cryptocurrencies today.

The extreme efforts of the global Central Banking cartels to continue to control gold and silver prices, including the massive dump of gold and silver prices to cause huge price spikes downward, pre-Janet Yellen speech last Friday, continue to clearly illustrate that the number one threat to their fiat currency system is not any cryptocurrency, but physical gold and physical silver. The intolerable and unacceptable situation taking place in Venezuela, where it has been reported that 3 out every 4 people in the country has lost an average of 8.7kg of weight (nearly 20 pounds) in the past 12-months, illustrates the most dire effect of the Central Banker-led currency wars, in which they have destroyed the purchasing power of the Venezuelan bolivar and destroyed most of the savings of people in their country, even though the mass media is squarely and falsely laying all the blame on their citizens’ dire financial condition on their current and former Presidents.

In any event, let’s take a quick look at a couple of charts below. We see that gold’s break above $1,300 was a very important break not because $1,300 is a nice even number, but because the five previous weeks this year (the circled weeks on my chart) gold tried to break through this barrier, Central Bankers rebuffed each prior attempt. Furthermore, as the below chart is a weekly gold chart, I am not even illustrating the multiple times in daily gold charts in which gold has been rebuffed multiple times in past weeks during daily trading sessions when it approached the $1,300 mark. Of course, the end of each month is a historically week performance period for spot gold and spot silver prices, so even if bankers attempt to rebuff gold and silver prices again in the next few days, if gold can close this week above $1,300, that is all that matters. If this happens, then this will be a very positive development. If it is pushed back below $1,300, then once again, the sustainable upward trend in gold prices will have been delayed. However, you can also see that several weeks ago, spot gold prices already broke above its 50 and 200-week average as well as above its weekly downward trend line. Thus, a weekly-close above $1,300 this week, followed by another weekly close above $1,300 the next week will be a very important development.

Regarding silver, you can see from my circled prices on the weekly spot silver chart that every time bankers have dumped paper silver in the silver futures markets in London and New York to suppress prices this year, that silver has rebounded, but each time, only rebounded to previous levels or topped out at a lower high. You can also see that weekly silver, with yesterday’s significant price rise, broached both the 50 and 200-week averages in one day, but even if silver prices are pushed back below the 200-week average in the next few days, as long as it stays above the 50-week average at week’s end, this will be a very positive development for silver. You can also see a red rectangular box I’ve drawn in the chart below, as the weekly silver spot price will need to continue to rise and close within this rectangle to close at a higher high after suffering a price knock down, something it has not done all year. This will be a very positive development when it happens before year-end. As well, if the silver spot price can broach the top of that rectangular price range, this event will be strongly significant towards the building of a sustainable higher silver price trend.

Are we really living “free” lives as we believe we are, or are we truly being shuttled through the very limiting confines of pre-determined systems that we fail to ever question? Today, I explore how the vast majority of us, no matter where we live in the world, stick to choices within a pre-determined academic system from age 6 to age 21, and then from a pre-determined corporate system from age 21 to age 65, and believe that we are living “free” lives, when in reality, we are really living lives within pre-determined systems of very limited choices. I also discuss the massive difference between schooling and education, which a large majority of us confuse as being the same.  In future vlogs, I will discuss how to escape this pre-determined “matrix” of life to live a free and rewarding life. To learn more about the future launch of our online academy SKWealthAcademy, a completely revolutionary educational platform that focuses on application of knowledge v. rote memorization and critical thinking v. behavioral conditioning (and emphasis on exam scores), please read our revamped SKWealthAcademy fact sheet here.
