The Fourth Stock Peak – Dangerous Investing Environment


Economic conditions appear to be creating a dangerous investing environment at this time.

Bonds and cash pay very low returns now.  Currencies almost everywhere are losing purchasing power.  Gold and silver prices are falling.

The stock market has stormed up but a comparison of the Dow Jones from 1960 to 1974  and from 2000 to now is troubling.

Notice four peaks representing over bought markets during a 17 year sideways bear market.

2000 to now Dow chart from  www.stockcharts.com

Has the Dow reached the fourth peak ready for one more sideways bear crash?

This site has tracked the Dow’s 15 to 20 year year cycles for many years and the  patterns are eerily similar.   There are many reasons why we could now see another sharp retraction in the Dow and these charts support that thought.   In 1974 the Dow collapsed nearly 50% before the great run up that began in the 1980s.

This means we should be very cautious and think beyond the Dow.

Multi currency investing offers one way to gain added security and profit in such dangerous times.

Jyske Bank, one the Denmark’s largest banks  has recently announced a new asset management development that can help make multi currency investments.

This is our 45th year of recommending multi currency portfolios for a better retirement. During these four and a half decades we have always  recommended “do not trust any one currency or banking system”.

Now it is easier to protect your retirement savings and make them grow. There is a new way to have a protected retirement through the bank safety of Canada and Denmark.

Many countries are plagued with excess and hidden debt that no one currency can be trusted.  The continued loss of the US dollar’s purchasing power can diminish better retirement opportunities.

Since the release of my first book “Passport to International Profit” written in the 1970s, I have preached and practiced being beyond any one currency system by being a One Man Multinational.

The core message in “Passport to International Profit” is to integrate your lifestyle with your investing and business, plus take advantage of what numerous countries have to offer financially.   The first basics steps in this process are:

#1: Live in one country you love.

#2: Bank in a second country that is safe and that you really enjoy.

#3: Invest in more than one strong currency.

Merri and I believe that being global is vital from an investing and business point of view and enlivening for one’s lifestyle.  With modern travel and communications technology, why not?

For the past 25 or so years the core of our multi program has been via an account at Jyske Bank… Denmark’s second largest bank.  Since 2008, our account and those of other Americans using Jyske have been managed by Jyske’s subsidiary Jyske Global Asset Management (JGAM).

A very positive evolution has now taken place.  JGAM announced the transfer of that management role to ENR Management in Montreal, Canada as of September 13, 2013.

Here is why I am delighted to see this new service.

First, before I explain why Americans gain seven benefits from this change, let me hasten to say that all managed assets will remain at Jyske Bank in Denmark… as the custodian.

Yet the transfer of the management role to Montreal brings these seven positive benefits.

Benefit #1:  Assets are now managed and regulated not only through the Securities Exchange Commission, but through two of the world’s safest banking communities in the world, Canada and Denmark.

Here are the Top Seven Safest countries to bank in based on the World Economic Forum’s Global ranking index.

World’s Soundest Bank System Rating:

1.    Canada
2.    Sweden
3.    Luxembourg
4.    Australia
5.    Denmark
6.     Netherlands
7.     Belgium

Benefit #2: Advisory clients will be able to have more control and input in their accounts and choose a larger variety of investments.

JGAM as a Danish company had to follow US and Danish securities regulations which inhibited the ability of JGAM to allow clients to select individual shares.  This rule will not inhibit as many investors when assets are managed from Canada.

Benefit #3: Minimum balances will be lower. I understand that the new minimum will be $100,000 compared to the previous minimum of $200,000.

Benefit #4: Fees on smaller accounts will be lower.  JGAM’s fee on smaller accounts was 2%. ENR will charge 1.5%

Benefit #5: The managers will be physically closer.   No matter where one lives in the USA,  Montreal is closer than Copenhagen.  Those of us on the U.S. East coast will get to visit our investment mangers without jet lag.

Benefit #6: Montreal is my favorite North American city. Though Copenhagen is one of my favorite European cities,  Montreal is also great… North American efficiency with European style.

Benefit #7:  Great people to deal with.  Thomas Fischer will join ENR so we get to continue working with him. We get the added benefit of Eric Roseman.  I have known Eric, the head of ENR, even longer than we have worked with Jyske.   Eric is the perfect example of a student who raced ahead of his teacher.   Eric gained some of his first inspirations to be a multi currency investment manager as one of my readers in the 1980s.   He wrote to me: “You are like my Jedi Master and I’m the apprentice. Learned so much about investing from you when I first got started.

His investment management skills as an investment manager have evolved far beyond mine so I will be very pleased to have him help manage my multi currency retirement account with ENR.

Thomas Fischer will be on the ENR investment committee and available to talk with clients.

For more information contact Thomas Fischer at fischer@jgam.com

See ENR Management’s website at www.enrassetmanagement.com

Non US clients will continue dealing direct to Copenhagen with Jyske Bank Private Bank as always. Non US investors contact Henrik Bøllingtoft Henrik.boellingtoft@jbpb.dk

Wherever you live do not trust any one bank, any one country, any one currency.  A financially sound retirement depends on banking in safe countries and holding strong currencies.

Multi Currency Value Investment Seminar

October Investing Seminar

One (of eleven) sessions at our October 17-18, 2015 Value Investment Seminar looks  at seven portfolios.   Each is based around a Primary Portfolio which consists of equal amounts of country ETFs in each of Keppler’s good value ranked markets, with a weighting of 70% in developed markets and 30% in emerging markets.  This is, an easy to start, very slow trading, safe and secure, worry and stress free portfolio that still has excellent profit potential.

The second and third and fourth portfolios are the Primary Portfolio with trailing stops.  One portfolio uses a 25% trailing stop,  one 20% trailing stop and one uses the smart stop system created by Dr. Richard Smith.  This system  uses algorithms that provide alerts when to sell and when to reenter shares.

The fifth is a derivative of the Primary Portfolio that replaces ETFs with and or includes income producing equities.

The sixth is a Disaster Portfolio to protect wealth if events around the world become really unglued.  The seventh portfolio is the higher risk, leveraged portfolio that includes some speculation in currencies and commodities.

The goal of this study is not to recommend any one portfolio or approach but to help subscribers to understand the characteristics of each so they can better determine how to invest themselves based on their financial means, needs, experience and skills.

Gain the importance of experience & mathematics.  Invest better than a hedge fund manager.

As a run up to my 50th year of speaking and writing about savings and investments around the world I decided to ask my friends who are mathematical and legal geniuses to share a weekend with us to cut through the fog of rapid change and learn how to beat the systems that can seem so bewildering.

Hedge Funds were the fashionable place to invest in the 1990s, but since then their performance has been falling.

However some hedge fund managers succeeded for one simple reason.  A Telegraph article “How can we avoid the next financial crisis?  Urgently listen to those who foresaw this one” explains why  a few managers succeeded, when it said:  It’s no coincidence that the biggest winners of the downturn – John Paulson, Paolo Pellegrini and Jeffrey Greene – were approaching 50 years of age. They retained vivid memories of past real-estate problems.  Youth was a detriment to pulling off the greatest trade ever and to preparing for the downturn.  

The successful hedge fund investors succeeded where most failed because of their experience.

I’ll provide the 50 years of experience at the seminar.  I have been through the rise of gold to over 800 an ounce (in the 1970s) and silver to $48.  I experienced the stock market’s bear that began in 1968, the Black Monday crash in 1987 when the Dow had its biggest one day drop ever and the dotcom bubble as well as the collapse in 2008.  I worked my way though the first dollar devaluation in 1971, the Plaza Accord arranged dollar collapse and two major downturns in the Japanese yen, plus invested through the 1970s, 1980s and late 2000 recessions.

We’ll share how these experiences which prepares us for our investments now.

Michael Keppler provides the Math.

The idea of using math to find good value equity investments led me to ask mathematical analyst, Michael Keppler, to join us in the Blue Ridge for the seminar.

Fwd: keppler

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.

Red Lining Your Investments

According to Keppler’s analyses, an equally-weighted combination of good value markets offers the highest expectation of long-term risk-adjusted performance.  His mathematical predictions have been eerily accurate as the red line below shows.

Each quarter Michael shares with me (and other professional investors) his “Total Return Predictions”.

Click on chart to enlarge.

This chart shows the entire real-time forecasting history of Keppler for the KAM Equally-Weighted World Index, he started in 1993.  Keppler continually shows what his mathematical formulas predict for markets four years ahead.  These numbers are based on mathematical relationships between price and value over the previous 15 years moving forward in monthly increments.  In this way Keppler uses numbers to continually adjust to the ever-changing market norm.

Keppler’s chart includes two remarkable episodes.  The first in the period when global equity markets peaked and crashed over a five-year period from 1997  to 2001.  Keppler’s Equally-Weighted World Index predictions stayed above the upper forecast band and accurately predicted the recovery and how much global markets would rise.

The second remarkable period started in October 2008, when again Keppler’s forecasts accurately showed where markets would reach as they fell below the lower forecast band.

Imagine the extra profit professional investors have today when they invested in these depressed good value markets before they again rose.

Keppler’s projections now indicate that global markets are expected to rise from between 2.1%  and 13.0 % in the next three to five years.

Learn about Keppler’s projections and about Asset Allocation from Michael Keppler in person at our Value Investing Seminar October 17 & 18 in Jefferson, North Carolina.

Learn amazing tax benefits as well.  I have invited my tax preparer, Conrad Oertwig, to join us.  

Seven of tax secrets that Conrad will share include:

* How Dutch-treat entertainment allows you to deduct your own meals.

* How to entertain for business and help the charity of your choice because a charity sporting event produces double the deduction of a business meal.

* How one magic word can allow you to deduct your daily transportation costs between your home and another work location.

* How to earn an extra $11,425  by using antiques as office equipment.

* How to gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business.

* How to reduce tax by having a second office in the home.

* How to travel by cruise ship and deduct up to $680 a day.

Plucking common sense from the tax law is time consuming and difficult work.  For more than 25 years, Conrad has gained great satisfaction by helping his clients extract tax dollars from the tax law.   He has over 400 tax savings tips and will share some of  the most important lessons at the seminar.

To help you get an early start on tax savings, I will send you Conrad’s report “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax… for the One-Owner Business” when you enroll in the seminar.  I’ll also send you “The Silver Dip 2015” as soon as it is released.

Join Michael Keppler, Conrad Oertwig, Merri, and me, plus video presentations by Leslie Share, Eric Roseman, Thomas Fischer and Richard Smith.   The “Value Investing Seminar” looks at how to protect purchasing power and pensions with value investing.  The course teaches how to add safety and create profits by spotting multi currency and global equity cycles through good value mathematics.

Get “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax & The Silver Dip 2015”.  Join us Saturday, Sunday, October 17-18, 2015, Jefferson, North Carolina.  Enroll here $499. Couple $799.

Hear from other speakers via video.  The seminar will include online presentations including:

One way to protect our wealth and freedom is to have a good attorney who understands how to use appropriate planning so you can also be protected rather than hurt by the tax laws.

Leslie Share:  How to use and benefit from US tax law living overseas and for wealth preservation.

les-share

Leslie has been our friend and adviser of more than 30 years, and I have asked him to speak to the seminar online at the October Value Investing seminar.  Leslie is an attorney in Coral Gables, Florida who specializes in general, corporate and international taxation, estate and gift tax planning, internal revenue service matters at the agent and appeals level plus most important, he specializes in wealth preservation.

He has the highest possible Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, Florida Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.

Leslie is the type of attorney who can help gain asset and wealth protection if you live in the US or abroad.

The best way for boomers to protect their wealth is with good value income producing shares.  Not everyone can wait for their assets to grow.  Many need investments that create income now.

Eric Roseman: How to select good value income producing shares.

erci roseman

Eric Roseman

I have worked with Eric for decades and use his ability to select good value income producing shares.  Understanding the intrinsic value of any equity is an elusive concept, but one of the best ways to assess value is by looking at the income it generates.  Eric is a master at sniffing out the shares that provide a good income now as well as potential appreciation later.  Learn from his strategic ideas for current market conditions.

Thomas Fischer:  The impact of  multi currency leverage leverage on portfolios.

thomas-fischer

Thomas Fischer has been a friend and investment adviser for nearly two decades.  As a former currency trader in Germany and London, he has a keen sense of currency fundamentals and how and when to use leverage.

Richard Smith: How to overcome the behavior gap with Trailing Stops.

dr richard smith

Dr. Richard Smith, founder and CEO of TradeStops.  Richard earned a PhD in Math and Systems Science, and even he had to learn the hard way that it takes more than intelligence to win in the game of investing.  He has spent the last 10 years researching and developing algorithms and services that give individual investors the tools they need to remain in their personal investing comfort zone, and to succeed!  With his background in mathematical theories of uncertainty combined with his own investing and trading experience, Dr. Smith understands risk management and how to use it as a self-directed investor to master the market.

Finally at the seminar I’ll review the 50 Golden Rules of Investing.  Learn how to protect against shady investment advice, unreasonable and hidden fees.  Learn how to protect yourself from your own emotions.  Learn when it is best to buy shares and determine which type of share is best for you.  Find out how to avoid the loss fear syndrome and stop getting caught by great sounding stories that can rob your wealth.

In 1986 I wrote  a report called the Silver Dip that showed how to borrow 12,000 British pounds (US$18,600) and use the loan to buy 3835 ounces of silver at around US$4.85 an ounce.

Silver had crashed in 1986, I mean really crashed, from $48 per ounce.   As prices decreased from early 1983 into 1986, total supply had fallen to  449.7 million ounces in 1986.  Mine production was restricted by the low prices at this time, with silver reaching a low for this period of $4.85 in May 1986. Secondary recovery also was constricted by these low prices.

Then silver’s price skyrocketed to over $11 an ounce within a year. The $12,000 was now worth $42,185.

The loan was in pounds and in May 1986 the dollar pound rate was 1.55 dollars per pound.  So the 12,000 pound loan had purchased $18,600 of silver.  The pound then crashed to  1.40 dollars per silver.  The loan could be paid off  for  $13,285 immediately creating a $5,314 profit.  So the profit grew to $47,499 in just a year.

That’s remarkably close to the promise, but in one year n stead of four.

This is why the “Silver Dip 2015” will be one of the seven portfolios, the most speculative, we will study at our October 17-18 Investment Seminar in Jefferson, North Carolina..

This is also why I am releasing a new “Silver Dip 2015” report.  The same conditions are in place for gold and the Silver Dip looks at both speculations in silver and gold.

There is also another, much safer, once every 30 year opportunity that I have described in a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”  This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small good value investments.  The mathematics behind the idea of this investment strategy are currently extraordinary.  Currency diversification has always been important for safety, but right now a multi- currency opportunity is brewing and has more profit potential than we have seen in over three decades.

Our Investing Seminars started 32 years ago when one of the best set of three currency and equity conditions ever existed.  Over these decades, our semi annual seminars have updated what’s going on in global investment markets and what to do.  Yet in all those years, few times have conditions offered as much long term opportunity as in 1982.   The Dow alone rose from 1,000 to 14,000 in that period.

Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffet explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said: Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Now three of the great economic conditions have returned.

Conditions have come together just as we saw at our first seminars in the 1980s.  The US dollar, the US stock market and the price of oil are acting almost exactly as they did in the early 1980s.  Knowing these conditions and why they have merged and what to do about them can help you create a fortune.

Learn how to gain this potential (we’ll review three ways to accomplish this at the seminar) in the Keppler Good Value Country Strategy with ETFs (Country Index Exchange Traded Funds).  For example there are currently ten good value developed markets, Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.  You can easily create a diversified portfolio in each or all of these ten countries with Country Index ETFs.

We review Country Index ETFs at the seminar and look at specific portfolios you can create to tap into these three economic conditions.

Share my 50 years of experience. Gain advice that is sterling as we head towards my golden anniversary of writing about saving, finance and investing.  Our value investing seminars are filled with valuable information but we have fun and take time to relax and socialize as well.

We look forward to joining us this October.

Pension Protection Mathematics – Time Deceit


Pension protection mathematics are filled with deceit because of the essence of time.

Last February we began a series on pension protection and the deceits of intervention.  The first article New Program Increases Pension Risk  shared  how new regulations that began in New York City were allowing municipalities to borrow from their pension to fund their pension.  This is one of the most deceitful moves I have seen… the snake eating its tail.

 

circle

Does borrowing money from a pension to make a payment into the pension really make sense?

Now at least we can see one honest comment about pensions from a New York City official. It is an honest statement about a universal pension deceit from New York’s Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

He said:  “If I can give you one piece of financial advice: If somebody offers you a guaranteed 7 percent on your money for the rest of your life, you take it and just make sure the guy’s name is not Madoff.”

This quote comes from a New York Times article entitled “Public Pensions Faulted for Bets on Rosy Returns” by Mary Williams Walsh and Danny Hakim.

Here is an excerpt: Few investors are more bullish these days than public pension funds.

While Americans are typically earning less than 1 percent interest on their savings accounts and watching their 401(k) balances yo-yo along with the stock market, most public pension funds are still betting they will earn annual returns of 7 to 8 percent over the long haul, a practice that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg recently called “indefensible.”

Now public pension funds across the country are facing a painful reckoning. Their projections look increasingly out of touch in today’s low-interest environment, and pressure is mounting to be more realistic. But lowering their investment assumptions, even slightly, means turning for more cash to local taxpayers — who pay part of the cost of public pensions through property and other taxes.

In New York, the city’s chief actuary, Robert North, has proposed lowering the assumed rate of return for the city’s five pension funds to 7 percent from 8 percent, which would be one of the sharpest reductions by a public pension fund in the United States. But that change would mean finding an additional $1.9 billion for the pension system every year, a huge amount for a city already depositing more than a tenth of its budget — $7.3 billion a year — into the funds.

But to many observers, even 7 percent is too high in today’s market conditions.

“The actuary is supposedly going to lower the assumed reinvestment rate from an absolutely hysterical, laughable 8 percent to a totally indefensible 7 or 7.5 percent,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a trip to Albany in late February. “If I can give you one piece of financial advice: If somebody offers you a guaranteed 7 percent on your money for the rest of your life, you take it and just make sure the guy’s name is not Madoff.”

In short, most pensions are relying on unrealistic projections to have enough to meet their obligations.   This is a very neat form of hidden inflation.

Seven percent may be a long term

Here are three simple facts can help you spot distortions in equity markets.

The first fact. Overall we should expect the global economy to grow at about 3%.

This first fact was confirmed by Alan Greenspan in his excellent book, “Age of Turbulence”. He wrote:

“A major aspect of human nature-the level of human intelligence-has a great deal to do with how successful we are in gaining the sustenance for survival. As I point out at the end of this book, in economies with cutting-edge technologies, people, on average, seem unable to increase their output per hour at better than 3% percent a year over a protracted period. That is apparently the maximum rate at which human innovation can move standards of living forward. We are apparently not smarter to do better.”

This gives us a baseline for how much an investment should grow.

If an economy rises faster than 3%, it is distorted. During early stages of excessive growth, investors will be attracted. Shares will rise faster.

If the economy remains robust, shares become overbought. Then watch out! A correction will come.

This leads us to the second fact which is “All investments have risk”.

Rather than wasting time trying to avoid risk…which cannot be done, investors should look at three risk elements instead.

#1: How much risk is there in any particular investment?

#2: What perceptions do the markets have of the risk?

#3: What risk premium is due?

Bank accounts and government bonds, for example, are perceived as the safest investments (especially if government guaranteed). A look at their long term history shows that they pay about 3%. So if a bank account or government bond pays less…in the long term it’s bad. If it pays more…that’s better. Yet the idea is that bank accounts will not really make money. They will just keep up with growth…at 3%.

To get real growth requires taking risk. If an investment appears to be less safe it will pay more than 3%. This is called a risk premium.
Bonds pay more than bank accounts because they are perceived to be less safe. Stocks pay more than bonds because they are perceived even riskier. Emerging market stocks pay more than major market stocks. Emerging market bonds pay more than major markets bonds.

Over the long run, bonds issued in countries and currencies perceived to be stable pay 5% to 7%.

Stocks in major countries should pay 7% to 10% annual return in the stock market as a function of global growth, long term earnings growth plus risk premium (above bank accounts and bonds).

To attain higher growth than 7% to 10% investors must either increase risk, trust luck or spot distortions.

This is good because the market is almost always wrong. Most investors always trying to avoid risk. Most investors dump their wealth into investments that are perceived to be safe. This creates excessive demand and lowers value and actually makes the perception wrong.

Knowing this helps wise investors spot deceits in the dimension of time.

Take, for example, the emerging market trend that has been created by an imbalance in labor costs around the world.

There are 6.6 billion people on this earth (give or take a few hundred million). 1 billion of these people live on a dollar a day. 2.5 billion live on two dollars a day. This means that there is a vast pool of cheap labor that can create goods at bargain prices. Mature economies are buying these goods at such an increased rate that 20% of all goods produced now cross a border, mostly from poor countries to the rich.

This means that emerging economies are growing much faster than 3%. They are catching up and this has caused major markets to slow down.

Yet emerging economies are perceived to have greater risk.

Smart investors have seen the value create by this distortion and have been cleaning up. They have been paid a huge risk premium when the risk has not been real!

The risk has been eliminated by low labor costs in poor countries and improvements in communications and transportation.

From 200o to 2010, the average annual return on emerging markets was 19.81% compared to 10% for major markets.

The Emerging Markets longest down turn was six months and the biggest drop 55%.  For major markets the longest down turn was also six months and biggest drop 53%.
So we can see that there has been no more risk in emerging markets than major markets… plus the upside has been much better.  This has now changed and you’ll see why below after looking at the third fact.

The third fact is that periods of high performance are followed by times of poor performance.

Emerging stock markets have outgrown major markets by about 7.5 times in the last seven years. Yet their economies are only growing about twice as fast.

Major markets have grown on average about 6.5% per annum for the past seven years….a little below what they should.

This has led to the point where emerging equity markets around the world correct down and major markets up a bit.

Yet in times of global panic as we have seen, all markets tend to drop. This means that at this time, major markets which may have been somewhat undervalued and should be rising are being pushed down by the drop of emerging markets (which should correct themselves).

Understanding these three facts leads us to know that a portfolio of European shares is a great bargain at this time…. but there is a special time risk.

Micheal Keppler stated in his latest major market valuation:

In my more than 30 years’ experience, I have never seen such a bad sentiment towards continental Europe. After a strong start in 2012, chances are good for a continuation of rising stock prices in general for the coming years.

If history is any guide, chances are better still for the Major Markets Top Value Model Portfolio.

This view is supported by our implicit three-to-five-year projection for the compound annual total return of the Equally-Weighted World Index, which now stands at 15.3 %, down from 17.6 % last quarter.

The upper-band estimate of 13,835 by March 31, 2016 implies a compound annual total return of 20.7 %; the lower-band value of 9,223 corresponds to a compound total return of 9.0 % p.a. Even our worst case makes equities look attractive — please see chart below, which shows the entire real-time forecasting history of Keppler Asset Management Inc. for the Equally Weighted World Index.

These numbers are based on relationships between price and value over the previous fifteen years. Given the current low levels of interest rates – real rates are negative in most places – I would like to point out that we do not have to be right with regard to the magnitude of our projections, but only directionally for investors to make money.

keppler tags:

This is why we have been recommending High Yield shares at this time.  Most are major market equities that provide income and growth potential… plus make it easy to diversify.  This is why we are weighted into Northern European and Italian banking shares shares that we feel offer extra special value and extra risk premium.

There you have it. Understanding the 3% solution and what markets have done shows a distortion. Blue chips may be oversold more than emerging shares now.

In the long term, emerging shares will rise. Poor people remain and are willing and able to make goods that others will buy. This will push their economies higher faster than in major economies. Yet for now the three percent solution shows that major markets and high quality shares are more likely to recover from the current doldrums first.

Jyske Global Asset Managers agree. Thomas Fischer recently wrote:   We had our investment committee meeting yesterday  and we decided to sell our commodity currencies and increase exposure to dividend paying stocks.

We looked at the market and asked ourselves “Where will the money go?” and we believe investing in “global Gorillas” with world wide income, good cash flows and revenues will be the place to be. Cash pays nothing, bonds are low yielding and commodities have done nothing for 9 months.

JGAM’s latest update said:  We have decided to sell our positions in Carlsberg and FLSmidth & Co and establish new positions in Vodafone Group and Nissan Motors. Additionally, we have added to some of the existing positions in defensive and/or dividend paying stocks such as Nestlé, PepsiCo Inc., Statoil and Novartis.

Global investing has proven itself to be more profitable. Why not? Modern communications and transport coupled with a vast pool of low cost labor almost guarantees this fact. Now knowing three more facts based on the 3% solution can give you an edge when it come to taking advantage of the ups and downs in this global trend.

However we have to take into account the impact of time

A look at the Dow Jones Industrial for the past 10 years shows great volatility.

equity chart

We can see this better in this long term global equity chart at www.affinity-consulting.com

equity chart

Global equity markets are quote high now and we can see the formation of a head and shoulders pattern suggesting a downturn.

Investments in the overall performance of global equity markets in 1999 made a nice profit if held until 2007.   There was a window of profit taking for about one year (2006 to 2007).

What if we have another downturn and it takes as long as it did from 1999 to 2006?

Can you or your pension wait for another eight  years before you start to take funds?

This is one reason why we are more focused on good value shares (more likely to rise sooner),  good value dividend paying shares (that can provide income so they do not have to be sold at a bad time),  good value real estate (can earn rental income) and your own micro business.

Markets will rise. Markets will fall. Global population will increase and the global economy will expand.  History suggests that these are fundamentals we can depend upon unless there is a really major disaster.  However these fundamentals only work for us when we give them enough time.  Plus global institutions have enough risk now that a downturn (if the EU divides for example) may take longer than normal.

We should not rely totally on pensions that have not adequately protected against the risk of time (assuming 8%… even 7%  growth is a sure sign they have not).   The way to be sure you have extra income and enjoy life to the fullest is to have a purpose that also creates an income.

Schedule 2015  Seminars and Courses

We conduct our Investment seminar at Jefferson Landing in Jefferson North Carolina.

Join Merri and me for all the courses and seminars that we’ll conduct to help you gain positive solutions to your economic, financial and lifestyle concerns.

Here is the courses we currently have scheduled in 2015. 

October Investing Seminar

One (of eleven) sessions at our October 17-18, 2015 Value Investment Seminar looks  at seven portfolios.   Each is based around a Primary Portfolio which consists of equal amounts of country ETFs in each of Keppler’s good value ranked markets, with a weighting of 70% in developed markets and 30% in emerging markets.  This is, an easy to start, very slow trading, safe and secure, worry and stress free portfolio that still has excellent profit potential.

The second and third and fourth portfolios are the Primary Portfolio with trailing stops.  One portfolio uses a 25% trailing stop,  one 20% trailing stop and one uses the smart stop system created by Dr. Richard Smith.  This system  uses algorithms that provide alerts when to sell and when to reenter shares.

The fifth is a derivative of the Primary Portfolio that replaces ETFs with and or includes income producing equities.

The sixth is a Disaster Portfolio to protect wealth if events around the world become really unglued.  The seventh portfolio is the higher risk, leveraged portfolio that includes some speculation in currencies and commodities.

The goal of this study is not to recommend any one portfolio or approach but to help subscribers to understand the characteristics of each so they can better determine how to invest themselves based on their financial means, needs, experience and skills.

Gain the importance of experience & mathematics.  Invest better than a hedge fund manager.

As a run up to my 50th year of speaking and writing about savings and investments around the world I decided to ask my friends who are mathematical and legal geniuses to share a weekend with us to cut through the fog of rapid change and learn how to beat the systems that can seem so bewildering.

Hedge Funds were the fashionable place to invest in the 1990s, but since then their performance has been falling.

However some hedge fund managers succeeded for one simple reason.  A Telegraph article “How can we avoid the next financial crisis?  Urgently listen to those who foresaw this one” explains why  a few managers succeeded, when it said:  It’s no coincidence that the biggest winners of the downturn – John Paulson, Paolo Pellegrini and Jeffrey Greene – were approaching 50 years of age. They retained vivid memories of past real-estate problems.  Youth was a detriment to pulling off the greatest trade ever and to preparing for the downturn.  

The successful hedge fund investors succeeded where most failed because of their experience.

I’ll provide the 50 years of experience at the seminar.  I have been through the rise of gold to over 800 an ounce (in the 1970s) and silver to $48.  I experienced the stock market’s bear that began in 1968, the Black Monday crash in 1987 when the Dow had its biggest one day drop ever and the dotcom bubble as well as the collapse in 2008.  I worked my way though the first dollar devaluation in 1971, the Plaza Accord arranged dollar collapse and two major downturns in the Japanese yen, plus invested through the 1970s, 1980s and late 2000 recessions.

We’ll share how these experiences which prepares us for our investments now.

Michael Keppler provides the Math.

The idea of using math to find good value equity investments led me to ask mathematical analyst, Michael Keppler, to join us in the Blue Ridge for the seminar.

Fwd: keppler

Michael is a brilliant mathematician.  We have tracked his analysis for over 20 years.   He continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each stock market’s history.  From this, he develops his Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  His analysis is rational, mathematical and does not cause worry about short term ups and downs.

Red Lining Your Investments

According to Keppler’s analyses, an equally-weighted combination of good value markets offers the highest expectation of long-term risk-adjusted performance.  His mathematical predictions have been eerily accurate as the red line below shows.

Each quarter Michael shares with me (and other professional investors) his “Total Return Predictions”.

Click on chart to enlarge.

This chart shows the entire real-time forecasting history of Keppler for the KAM Equally-Weighted World Index, he started in 1993.  Keppler continually shows what his mathematical formulas predict for markets four years ahead.  These numbers are based on mathematical relationships between price and value over the previous 15 years moving forward in monthly increments.  In this way Keppler uses numbers to continually adjust to the ever-changing market norm.

Keppler’s chart includes two remarkable episodes.  The first in the period when global equity markets peaked and crashed over a five-year period from 1997  to 2001.  Keppler’s Equally-Weighted World Index predictions stayed above the upper forecast band and accurately predicted the recovery and how much global markets would rise.

The second remarkable period started in October 2008, when again Keppler’s forecasts accurately showed where markets would reach as they fell below the lower forecast band.

Imagine the extra profit professional investors have today when they invested in these depressed good value markets before they again rose.

Keppler’s projections now indicate that global markets are expected to rise from between 2.1%  and 13.0 % in the next three to five years.

Learn about Keppler’s projections and about Asset Allocation from Michael Keppler in person at our Value Investing Seminar October 17 & 18 in Jefferson, North Carolina.

Learn amazing tax benefits as well.  I have invited my tax preparer, Conrad Oertwig, to join us.  

Seven of tax secrets that Conrad will share include:

* How Dutch-treat entertainment allows you to deduct your own meals.

* How to entertain for business and help the charity of your choice because a charity sporting event produces double the deduction of a business meal.

* How one magic word can allow you to deduct your daily transportation costs between your home and another work location.

* How to earn an extra $11,425  by using antiques as office equipment.

* How to gain $12,976 by using two vehicles for business.

* How to reduce tax by having a second office in the home.

* How to travel by cruise ship and deduct up to $680 a day.

Plucking common sense from the tax law is time consuming and difficult work.  For more than 25 years, Conrad has gained great satisfaction by helping his clients extract tax dollars from the tax law.   He has over 400 tax savings tips and will share some of  the most important lessons at the seminar.

To help you get an early start on tax savings, I will send you Conrad’s report “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax… for the One-Owner Business” when you enroll in the seminar.  I’ll also send you “The Silver Dip 2015” as soon as it is released.

Join Michael Keppler, Conrad Oertwig, Merri, and me, plus video presentations by Leslie Share, Eric Roseman, Thomas Fischer and Richard Smith.   The “Value Investing Seminar” looks at how to protect purchasing power and pensions with value investing.  The course teaches how to add safety and create profits by spotting multi currency and global equity cycles through good value mathematics.

Get “7 Secrets to Paying Less Tax & The Silver Dip 2015”.  Join us Saturday, Sunday, October 17-18, 2015, Jefferson, North Carolina.  Enroll here $499. Couple $799.

Hear from other speakers via video.  The seminar will include online presentations including:

One way to protect our wealth and freedom is to have a good attorney who understands how to use appropriate planning so you can also be protected rather than hurt by the tax laws.

Leslie Share:  How to use and benefit from US tax law living overseas and for wealth preservation.

les-share

Leslie has been our friend and adviser of more than 30 years, and I have asked him to speak to the seminar online at the October Value Investing seminar.  Leslie is an attorney in Coral Gables, Florida who specializes in general, corporate and international taxation, estate and gift tax planning, internal revenue service matters at the agent and appeals level plus most important, he specializes in wealth preservation.

He has the highest possible Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, Florida Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.

Leslie is the type of attorney who can help gain asset and wealth protection if you live in the US or abroad.

The best way for boomers to protect their wealth is with good value income producing shares.  Not everyone can wait for their assets to grow.  Many need investments that create income now.

Eric Roseman: How to select good value income producing shares.

erci roseman

Eric Roseman

I have worked with Eric for decades and use his ability to select good value income producing shares.  Understanding the intrinsic value of any equity is an elusive concept, but one of the best ways to assess value is by looking at the income it generates.  Eric is a master at sniffing out the shares that provide a good income now as well as potential appreciation later.  Learn from his strategic ideas for current market conditions.

Thomas Fischer:  The impact of  multi currency leverage leverage on portfolios.

thomas-fischer

Thomas Fischer has been a friend and investment adviser for nearly two decades.  As a former currency trader in Germany and London, he has a keen sense of currency fundamentals and how and when to use leverage.

Richard Smith: How to overcome the behavior gap with Trailing Stops.

dr richard smith

Dr. Richard Smith, founder and CEO of TradeStops.  Richard earned a PhD in Math and Systems Science, and even he had to learn the hard way that it takes more than intelligence to win in the game of investing.  He has spent the last 10 years researching and developing algorithms and services that give individual investors the tools they need to remain in their personal investing comfort zone, and to succeed!  With his background in mathematical theories of uncertainty combined with his own investing and trading experience, Dr. Smith understands risk management and how to use it as a self-directed investor to master the market.

Finally at the seminar I’ll review the 50 Golden Rules of Investing.  Learn how to protect against shady investment advice, unreasonable and hidden fees.  Learn how to protect yourself from your own emotions.  Learn when it is best to buy shares and determine which type of share is best for you.  Find out how to avoid the loss fear syndrome and stop getting caught by great sounding stories that can rob your wealth.

In 1986 I wrote  a report called the Silver Dip that showed how to borrow 12,000 British pounds (US$18,600) and use the loan to buy 3835 ounces of silver at around US$4.85 an ounce.

Silver had crashed in 1986, I mean really crashed, from $48 per ounce.   As prices decreased from early 1983 into 1986, total supply had fallen to  449.7 million ounces in 1986.  Mine production was restricted by the low prices at this time, with silver reaching a low for this period of $4.85 in May 1986. Secondary recovery also was constricted by these low prices.

Then silver’s price skyrocketed to over $11 an ounce within a year. The $12,000 was now worth $42,185.

The loan was in pounds and in May 1986 the dollar pound rate was 1.55 dollars per pound.  So the 12,000 pound loan had purchased $18,600 of silver.  The pound then crashed to  1.40 dollars per silver.  The loan could be paid off  for  $13,285 immediately creating a $5,314 profit.  So the profit grew to $47,499 in just a year.

That’s remarkably close to the promise, but in one year n stead of four.

This is why the “Silver Dip 2015” will be one of the seven portfolios, the most speculative, we will study at our October 17-18 Investment Seminar in Jefferson, North Carolina..

This is also why I am releasing a new “Silver Dip 2015” report.  The same conditions are in place for gold and the Silver Dip looks at both speculations in silver and gold.

There is also another, much safer, once every 30 year opportunity that I have described in a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”  This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small good value investments.  The mathematics behind the idea of this investment strategy are currently extraordinary.  Currency diversification has always been important for safety, but right now a multi- currency opportunity is brewing and has more profit potential than we have seen in over three decades.

Our Investing Seminars started 32 years ago when one of the best set of three currency and equity conditions ever existed.  Over these decades, our semi annual seminars have updated what’s going on in global investment markets and what to do.  Yet in all those years, few times have conditions offered as much long term opportunity as in 1982.   The Dow alone rose from 1,000 to 14,000 in that period.

Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffet explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said: Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Now three of the great economic conditions have returned.

Conditions have come together just as we saw at our first seminars in the 1980s.  The US dollar, the US stock market and the price of oil are acting almost exactly as they did in the early 1980s.  Knowing these conditions and why they have merged and what to do about them can help you create a fortune.

Learn how to gain this potential (we’ll review three ways to accomplish this at the seminar) in the Keppler Good Value Country Strategy with ETFs (Country Index Exchange Traded Funds).  For example there are currently ten good value developed markets, Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.  You can easily create a diversified portfolio in each or all of these ten countries with Country Index ETFs.

We review Country Index ETFs at the seminar and look at specific portfolios you can create to tap into these three economic conditions.

Share my 50 years of experience. Gain advice that is sterling as we head towards my golden anniversary of writing about saving, finance and investing.  Our value investing seminars are filled with valuable information but we have fun and take time to relax and socialize as well.

We look forward to joining us this October.

Save Steps to Success in Difficult Times


Here are seven tips on how to fight hard times… plus a recorded interview on where to invest in 2012.

Yesterday Scotland really celebrated the New Year. This is perhaps the biggest holiday of the year and there are some good hardy Scottish traditions behind this celebration.  Cleaning the house on 31st December and clearing all your debts before “the bells” at midnight are two.

Wouldn’t the world be different if all of society actually did that?  The hard times faced now are based much on the fact that governments around the world have not been willing to clean the house each year.

“First footing” is part of the celebration as well and to ensure good luck for the house, the first foot should be male with symbolic coal, shortbread, salt, black bun and whiskey.

I hope there was one of the “First Foot” in your home.  Instead of whiskey and short bread (almost certainly not in your resolutions)… here are seven steps we all can take to prosper in hard times… or any time.

Plus there is a 38 minute interview with Thomas Fischer of Jyske Bank on  what the economy holds in 2012 and what to do in the year ahead after these seven steps .

The steps below are good for prosperity anytime.  When economies boom, we might ignore them and succeed.  If we ignore them now during a recession, it is at our peril.

#1: Look for every way you can to trim expenses.

#2: Do not be inflexible or proud. A seminar delegate told me about a friend who had risen from a zero net worth to having an Internet portfolio worth $300 million. “Then,” the delegate said, “he lost it all when the bubble burst. He went right back to where he started.”

That was not quite right. That investor did not go back to where he started. He most likely acquired bad habits when he thought he was worth $300 million! Unless he shed those habits when he went broke, it will make it harder for him to succeed again! In good times, we may think we deserve a certain way of life or that some things (luxuries for instance) are our inalienable rights. Really our only economic right is to spend a little less (maybe 90%) than we earn.

#3: Always save. No matter how tough the times always try to save at least 10% of your income. Those who do this almost never run into economic trouble.

#4: Look harder for the silver lining. There are more opportunities in bad times than good. An old British saying is “Where there is muck there is brass”. Business is solving problems and difficult times create problems. Look for ways that you (and/or your investments) can help others squeeze through tight times.

#5: Be positive. One of the greatest risks in recession is a can’t win attitude. If the economy falls drastically (say 30%), you still only have to be in the top 70% to get by. The entire history of modern humanity has been one of long term growth chopped by short term recessions. Current conditions are nothing new.

#6: Remain true to your economic plan. Use three phase investing.

Do not panic.  Stick by your investments (assuming they were made intelligently to begin). This will increase your odds of success and help you with step seven.

#7: Maintain perspective. Rethink Priorities.  Use a slowdown to rethink your grueling schedule.  Think about pursuing work that might pay less but is more meaningful. We live in the richest, most incredible era that mankind has ever known. Our poorest have more than the richest of just centuries ago. Yet this can be hard to remember when caught in the day-to-day rush of the material rat race.

Here is a 38 minute interview with Thomas Fischer of Jyske Bank on  what the economy holds in 2012 and what to do in the year ahead.

Delegates of either our January or February seminars in Mt. Dora can also attend the New York seminar FREE.

Thomas Fischer and Jyske Global Asset Management will host a one day New York seminar on where to invest in 2012 with David Darst of Morgan Stanley and Peter Berizin of BCA Analysts.

This is an incredible opportunity because David Darst is managing director and chief investment strategist at Morgan Stanley, Smith Barney with responsibility for asset allocation and investment strategy. He was the founding president of the Morgan Stanley Investment Group after he joined Morgan Stanley 14 years ago from Goldman Sachs where he held senior management posts within the Equities Division and earlier, for six years as resident manager of their private bank in Zurich.  He  earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and was awarded a BA degree in Economics from Yale University.  He has lectured extensively at Wharton, Columbia, INSEAD and New York University business schools. For nine years he served as a visiting faculty member at Yale College, Yale School of Management and Harvard Business School.

Wow… what a resume.

David is an incredibly powerful speaker and a key part of  his beliefs is that the power of American innovation could create a huge positive economic recovery and this offered excellent investing opportunity.

Seven Secrets of Self Publishing

Here are seven secrets that can help you earn as a writer and self publisher.  

gary-scott-photo

Join me as a wirter and self publisher.

These secrets are important because growing numbers of unknown writers have become famous writers and rich by self publishing over the internet.

Take for example Amanda Hocking.  After self publishing her first book at Amazon.com in the spring of 2010 she became one of the the best-selling e-authors. In the next year her book sales grossed approximately $2 million.

In 2011, St. Martin’s press paid Hocking more than $2 million for the world English rights of a four book series.  In 2013 she sold another series to St. Martin’s Press.

E.L. James is another such story.  She sold 250,000 copies of “50 Shades” via Createspace and Amazon.com before publishers noticed her and published the erotic romance trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed which sold over 70 million copies worldwide, setting the record as the fastest selling paperback of all time.

Hugh Howey is a third example.  He was working for $10 an hour in a book store when he self published his novel Wool, typing in a storage room during his lunch breaks. Soon he was earning over $100,000 a month on Amazon. This helped secure a six-figure book deal from Simon & Schuster, and an option for film by Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner and Alien.

These are great inspirations.

I know Hugh.  This type of success could not happen to a more deserving and talented person.  He deserves every accolade he receives and he does not take a bit of this success for granted. Hugh is pouring enormous energy into be worthy of his readership.  We’ll share some of Hugh’s secrets in a moment.

Neither you or I are likely to have this type of success.   That’s not bad.  The good news is… we do not need this type of success to have a rich and fulfilled lifestyle.  Self Publishing offers so many opportunities that one can have a life that most people only dream of as a journeyman writer, instead of a super star.

May I hastily add that the path to stardom begins as a journeyman… so the journeyman’s path brings success without stardom… but can also lead to stardom.

What most success stories like those of Hugh Howey or E.L James or Amanda Hocking rarely share is the many hours of writing they devoted before their self published book sales soared.  They were journeymen first… stars second.

The sevens secrets are the journeyman secrets… call them a writer’s armory of tools that allows almost anyone to create successful publications for income and fulfillment.

Take Merri’s and my publishing business as an example.  

Merri and I are not writing stars.  We are journeymen who have for 40 years, year in a year out, earned solid income writing and self publishing dozens of publications about multiple subjects.

Some years that income has been more than solid… over a million dollars.  Yet in terms of stardom, we are hardly known.

In a moment you’ll see why that’s fine for us and probably for you too.  First some history.

Merri became involved in self publishing over 40 years ago… first helping a veterinarian publish a book on a very specific market… animal acupuncture. Then she showed a needle point artist how to sell more books to an even more specific audience… “needle point enthusiasts”  about her needle point work to an audience larger than the population of the city she lived in.  This led Merri to eventually become Executive Editor of an award winning magazine in Florida.

My story allowed me to work and live from Hong Kong to London to Europe to Eastern Europe, then the Caribbean and then Ecuador… making millions in the process of following my adventures… having fun… while helping a large readership adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Self Publishing has created exactly the lifestyle we desire allowing us to span the world, have homes in Hong Kong, England, a farm in North Carolina, orange groves and home in Florida… hotel and condos in Ecuador and work that we love and feel has meaning and purpose.

Self Publishing has become a new business art form and the seven secrets can help you start your own self publishing business now.

Everything in publishing is new and exciting and changing.  Publishing is being recreated by the wonderful power of destructive technology.  Everything seems new… except the seven secrets.  Change in the publishing industry is disturbing many.   We love it due to these seven secrets we call the 7Ps.  The 7 Ps are so fundamental to writing and publishing that new technology enhances rather than reduces their power.

The First P is Passion.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it AND create income with self publishing.  This can be your direct ticket to the kind of fulfillment you’ve always wanted in life. Whether you want to travel the world or live as a recluse, work 12 hours a day or not work much at all,  you can set your schedule to succeed, if you’re willing to learn these seven secrets on writing to sell.

You can start part-time with any dream, passion, and budget.  Once you’ve created a product, you’ll enjoy the “multiple effect” of producing profits over and over again.

So the question is… What do you love to do?

What’s Your Passion:  An example is that thirty years ago, a client of Merri’s had a passion to help people who were in pain?  He published a series of pamphlets explaining various chiropractic disorders in very simple terms.  For example: “What Is Whip Lash?”

The pamphlets contained solid information, but were simple 5″ x 7″ brochures with drawings and explanations. He sold them with a rack to chiropractors, who put them in their offices for patients to read.  These little self-published items sold year in and year out for decades.

There are thousands of ideas of this sort that can lead to big business.  It’s just a matter of defining and then acting on your passion.

Although I can work when I please and go where I wish, for me the most important reason for being a publisher is the satisfaction it brings. I love the projects I take on, so work doesn’t feel like, well… work.

I’m passionate about investing, so I write and self publish ideas about investing.  Merri and I love Ecuador… so we wrote about Ecuador.

What do you love?  If you love golf, then you can write and sell publications about golf.  Love travel, fishing, dogs, dolls, or art?  Write and sell publications in these fields.

Are you concerned about crime, war, poverty or environmental issues? You can publish information products that help reduce these concerns.

Would you like to help the world be a more spiritual place? Publish a newsletter, write a book (or hire someone to write it for you), record a tape… publish something that enlightens people.

Whatever your passion, you can immerse yourself in it and earn income by publishing for ereaders, print on demand, CDs, lists, bound books, or any format you choose.

This is why stardom is not the main goal for most writers and self publishers.  To be immersed in our passion and get paid well for it.  That usually enough.

The seven Ps are:

#1: Passion

#2: Problem

#3: Person

#4: Profitably Priced Product

#5: Prospecting Pathway

#6: Promise

#7: Presentation

In 1974,  I had a business that never got ahead. I was almost penniless, in debt and living from hand to mouth. Then I discovered these seven secrets. They helped me write and sell book after book and report after report.  Since then, our self publishing business has brought in millions.

How to build a solid business.

The key to building a successful self publishing business is to use the Golden Rule of Simplicity and the 7Ps to create your publication.  The premise behind the Golden Rule is that if you have a passion… you have a problem.  Your problem is a desire to fill.

The Golden rule of writing uses a writer’s desire as a compass to direct the creation and sale of the publication.

Here is the Golden Rule of Simplicity:  Your Desires Are in Others.  Your Desires ID Markets. Your Habits Reveals Pathways. Your Emotions Create Stories. Your Demands Create Publications.

This creative pathway works whether your publication is written by hand and sold on the street corner or published for Kindle at Amazon.com. These simple but basic fundamentals guide the creation of your works whether you use the most sophisticated equipment and algorithms  or are totally low tech.

The first time I exposed others to the secrets in Self Publishing was in a weekend seminar.  We offered the course for $1,500 and were surprised when 80 delegates enrolled.  People from all walks of life attended—chiropractors, businessmen, investors, doctors, realtors, inventors, airline pilots, engineers, and housewives.

Merri and I were so overwhelmed by the response, we decided to make it available to a larger audience. We created a course based on our current self publishing activity.

That was more than 20 years ago and thousands have used the course as it has evolved over the decades.  You can see a few current success stories at the links at the bottom of this note.

This course is not theoretical. It describes step-by-step how Merri and I built a million-dollar international business and how we are running this self publishing business right now.   We use the 7Ps today just as we did four decades ago to create a strong six figure annual income.

Another thing that is unique is that Merri and I do this entire business by ourselves with the help of David Cross, our son-in-law and webmaster.  You will not have to build an organization to self publish.  Though we have over 35,000 readers who have subscribed to our ezine and though we have have made millions we still work from home.  You’ll be able to do the same—if you wish—because the course includes everything we did and do—explained in vivid detail.

To this end, I have created a special offer.  When  you enroll in a Writer’s Camp, I’ll immediately send you an online course  “Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher,” which is normally $299.   I’ll also send our online course on how to use the internet and a website in your business  and three additional bonuses.

Bonus #1: Get the 50 minute Video Workshop worth $99 “How to Start Your Own Internet Business” presented by our webmaster David Cross,

Bonus #2: Get FREE, the $299 online course “The Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have an Internet Business”.  To read more  about this course click here.

This wonderful beach runs all the way to San Clemente (where we have our penthouse).  The point in the far distance is San Clemente.

From Crucita, there are many miles of empty beach walking. At low tide, you can walk round the point and then walk even more miles all the way to Bahia.

Back to Crucita. Many of our readers live here. We helped many buy lots for these houses about 15 years ago.

Happy Oops… New Year


Here’s one way to get a good start in the new year.  Let my 2009 error make you a hero in 2010.

Sometimes… no matter how much experience… there are ways to screw up…  as I recently did.

See below how this mistake can not only bring extra cheer to you in 2010… but can help you gain wealth… better health… asset protection and make you a hero (or heroine as the case may be) as well.  Plus save you some cash as well!

First let me share how rosy our holiday has been… filled with Ecuador roses.   (Roses like this will be part of your heroship because in a minute you’ll see how to get an Ecuador rose bouquet absolutely free…. exactly at the most important time.)

We received 100 roses… we had ordered 50 and a kind reader sent us 50 more. Thank you Barry!  After sharing, we still had a number of wonderful bouquets around the house.

Some have become wilted by now.

Though they are not so great on the stems… they still look good on…

ecuador-roses

off the stalks on…

our dining room table.

The pinks really held up and remain in our kitchen.

ecuador-roses

These roses lasted nine days because we care for them. Instructions are included when you get Ecuador roses.

Other good ones have regrouped into a New Year’s bouquet standing in our living room.

ecuador-roses

Readers loved their Ecuador roses as well.

One wrote:  Just wanted to send a note about the roses. They are breathtaking. We cannot believe just how beautiful they are. Arrival was exactly on schedule, again they are perfect. We got them for our own house, which is an Assisted Living Facility for the Developmentally Disabled, six men with mental challenges live here with us. But the roses are so lovely we are allowing them to take some to their families. We want to thank you and yours for sharing with us such a lovely gift.  Makes us want to move even more.   You will definitely be getting more orders in the future from us AND our friends.

Now let me confess… my screw up.  Then we’ll share two great benefits (an Ecuador rose gift and more) that this error can bring to you.

Merri and I have been conducting seminars for over 30 years.

In that time we have learned many lessons.  For example…  one important lesson is… do not conduct a seminar anywhere near Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s Day.

So what did I do for 2010?

Before I admit everything, please let me mitigate this screw up by saying that scheduling these events is not the easiest task in the world.

One has to take into account US holidays, Canadian holidays…. Ecuadorian holidays… religious holidays of all sorts… what one’s competitors are doing, what our friends at Jyske Bank are doing plus in 2010 we have a Cotswold wedding to factor in  (our youngest daughter is to be married… yea!) as well.

Plus our business has really boomed.   By last October, when we normally schedule our seminars for the year ahead…  I was already being bombarded with requests for a 2010 schedule.

What more can I say.  I simply goofed under pressure and set up our first ever expanded Quantum Wealth International Business & Investing seminar for Feb. 11-14  in Mt. Dora, Florida.

In other words this course’s schedule is not near… not close… but right on Valentine’s Day.  I shudder!

Plus once our schedule is set and reservations come in…the dates are pretty well set in stone.  In the last 30 years or so I have missed a seminar only twice… once when my dad died and once last year when my mother had a serious illness. (She has recovered really nicely thank you very much).

If Merri, our kids and my mom (plus me of course) are breathing and are likely to continue to do so for a week… then our seminars are conducted!

So I realized: “I had to turn lemons into lemonade.”

I had to create a Valentine’s celebration as part of our February seminar.

I have done this in three ways so here is what I am going to do for you…. to make you a Valentine’s hero!

If you attend our course this February 11 to 14  and bring your partner! I’ll give you a bouquet of beautiful Ecuador roses to enjoy at the seminar.  If your spouse does not come, you can take the roses home… The course ends about noon so you can get back home on Valentine’s Day, and with some of the nicest roses you can imagine, to say “Happy Valentine’s Day”!

You’ll be a Valentine’s hero!

Yet there are two more great Valentine’s treats in the works… that will make you a Hero with a capital H.   We’ll see these other benefits in a moment.

First, let me describe the benefits (beyond being a Valentine HERO) of attending the seminar.

The seminar begins in Mt. Dora (about an hour from Orlando airport) Thursday February 11 with “Quantum Wealth” a one day workshop conducted before our regular Florida International Investing & Business Made EZ seminar.

This workshop helps you learn how to attain wealth continuously, effortlessly, in a fulfilling, enjoyable and positive way.  This workshop will help you stop worrying about money, bad governments, the falling dollar… inflation and all the future other horribles. Quantum Wealth reduces stress… improves health and helps income to flow from doing what you love.

We have been incorporating the ideas of Quantum Health and Quantum Wealth into our courses and seminars for decades… but our  February 2010 Florida schedule made it possible to devote an entire day to this portion of the course.

International-Investments

Delegates enjoy coming to our home during the “Quantum Wealth – International Business & Investing Seminars” Here is a group at our North Carolina home.

The foundation of Quantum Wealth is to integrate:

* Logic with intuition.  The benefit is increased prosperity from better adaptation to change.

* Desire with action.  The benefit is more enjoyment and fulfillment from life.

* Good health with everlasting wealth. The benefit is reduction of stress, more energy and feeling better.

ecuador-savings

Join us here, this February at…

emp-terrorst-attack

our new Florida home…where we will enjoy a Valentine’s Day celebration.

Bringing delegates to our home for a home cooked meal is an example of a quantum wealth benefit.

This is fun.

Yet there is more.  This process helps delegates hear, see and feel the authentic reality of the ideas we share.  We do not spout ivory tower, unattainable theory.  Our seminars share what we do… how we live… and how we have developed our lifestyle. Our mission is to help you see what we do, so you can blend our lessons into a lifestyle that is better… happier… richer…easier for you.

I have never heard of other seminars offering this… an integration of what we speak about with our actual “at home” lifestyle.

Here are the 21 main points we cover in our one day Quantum Wealth Workshop.

#1: Quantum mechanics & frequency how they all connect.

#2: Three aspects of being – air – fire – water… how to balance and integrate them.

#3: Three ways to integrate brain waves and be in the zone… 60 cycle sound… L- theanine and meditation.

#4: The Andean – Indian Connection. How Ayurved and Andean relate.  Three fundamentals of longevity. Eat right, work hard and sleep well. Nutrition, exercise and purpose.

#5: How dis-ease develops and is stopped.

#6: Nutritional goals: Improve digestion, avoid dis-ease here first.

#7: How to use cleansings. Melon, pineapple, apples-grapes, vareshna, chelating, cinnamon-sweet pepper tea, steam and mists.

#8: Teas. How and when to use cedron, chamomile, lemon verbena, peppermint.

#9: Relaxers. How to use chamomile, valerian, lettuce and milk, hot water, vata press.

#10: Fire reducers. How to use peppermint tea, aloe, cream massage, frozen grapes.

#11: Water reducers. How to use cinnamon tea, paprika, cloves, ginger, ginger-black salt and lemon juice.

#12: The power of ritual & routine. When to eat, think, exercise.

#13: How to spot imbalances. Moods, physical signs. pulse testing.

#14: Quantum leap. How energy, colors, organs, glands work together and change every seven years.

#15: Shamanic exercises-yoga, llama walk, lizard, sun salute, crab and mouth release, ring chew, etc.

#16: Deeper Digestion.

#17: How to use the senses, taste, six flavors.

#18: How to use color.

#19: How to use sound.

#2o: How to use essential oils.

#21:  How to gain Super Thinking abilities, increased intelligence and super thinking into our Super Thinking + Spanish for many years but now have added this to our international investing and business seminars to create quantum wealth.

There are at least three simple ways to turn on this super thinking ability:  meditation, listening to 60 cycle music and taking Theanine.
These three steps integrate four categories of brainwaves, ranging from beta waves, the fastest of the four different brainwaves to alpha, theta and the final brainwave state, delta. Delta brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency.  Deep dreamless sleep takes you down to the lowest frequency.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely we gain unimaginable intellect.

Merri and I meditate twice every day to tap into this energy.

Plus we listen to 60 beat ten cycle classical music as we work. You could count the number of times we have missed our meditation routine in the last 20 years on one hand. This helps us enormously.

This type of music, along with deep breathing exercises for relaxation moves the mind into Alpha and deeper states as well.

Health benefits are gained as blood pressure can drop, heart rates slow and the mind becomes calmed… and you become smarter.  You tap into your higher intelligence and are more likely to have… and  enjoy… success.

A third avenue that helps enhance intelligence is Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide) one of the chemicals found in green tea. Theanine is used to reduce stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming agents. Scientific evidence shows that Theanine stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, making the user feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. It also helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan. As might be expected from a calming supplement, Theanine may be able to lower elevated blood pressure as well.

Our Quantum Wealth workshop looks at how to use super thinking to tap into deeper intelligence and what to do with this intelligence in business, investing and life so you improve the way you absorb, retain, recall information and think forever. The one day Quantum Wealth workshop prepares you to gain more from the international investing segment of the course that starts Friday February 12 when I join Thomas Fischer of Jyske Global Asset Management and our webmaster to review where to invest in 2010.

international-investment-seminar

Here is Thomas speaking at a previous seminar.

Quantum wealth shares our lifestyle.  International Business & Investing shares  how we create income through service and invest globally… plus shares our most valuable contacts and sources of knowledge.

Inflation makes it increasingly hard for almost everyone to keep up with the faster and faster pace of the rat race that captures most of the world…especially in economic downturns we have experienced for the past two years.

International investments and international business unlocks the restrictions of the rat race.

Economic stress grows…debt…rising cost of insurance, increased liability…inflation lurk everywhere. More crowded…more change…more push.  The falling dollar and economic hard times are shredding purchasing power.

This leave us few choices.

We can join the rat race or…find enjoyable ways to invest and earn.

The second day of the seminar (Friday Feb 12) looks first at multi currency investing.  Multi currency portfolios are usually slow moving, safe, conservative investments but they can be really profitable as well.

How safe?

The portfolios we create and review at our courses are composed of mutual funds and shares and are developed with the help of one of the world’s safest banks. The mutual funds and shares are held at that bank at all times.

Suppose we get specific.

That safe bank is Jyske Bank…well established with a history of over 100 years. Jyske is Denmark ’s second largest bank, with 450,000 clients in Denmark and over 30,000 abroad.

Jyske Bank has over 23 billion euros in assets and also happens to be one of the leading currency traders in the world. The Danes have always been big currency traders because as a small naval country surrounded by England , Sweden , Finland , Russia , Germany , Norway and other countries…they have always had to deal in many currencies.

This historically gained expertise means that unlike most banks (that trade only eight hours a day) Jyske maintains a 24 hour global currency and commodity dealer service. Many other large banks use Jyske to handle their off hour currency positions. This means that Jyske is huge when it comes to multi currency activity. In fact their turnover reaches $50 billion dollars a day.

That’s safe.

Each course reviews global economics and updates ways to adapt and prosper in current conditions.

This portion of the course reviews what I am doing as multi currency investor myself.  For example during the 2008 downturn the recent Global Portfolio Currency Breakdown of my own personal portfolio looked like this.

Ecuador Real Estate 12.0%
Real Estate  31.0%
Euro 10.5%
Emerging market Currencies 10.0%
Danish kroner 9.9%
US$ 8.2%
British pound 6.0%
Swedish kroner 4.0%
NZ$ 3.7%
Australian $ 1.0%
Canadian $ 1.0%

By late 2009 that portfolio had shifted to

US $ Real Estate 50%
Non US Equities   3%
Emerging Bonds 11%
Bonds                   26%
Ecuador Real Estate  (for sale) 15%
US$ Short             -5%

my liquid portfolio was diversified in these currencies:

US$  -5.0%
CAD  7.0%
NZD  7.0%
AUD   7.0%
$ Bloc   16.0%

GBP   8.0%
DKK  10.0%
SEK   4.0%
EURO 39.0%
Euro bloc 61.0%

TRY 6.0%
HUF 7.0%
BRL 6.0%
EMCS 6.0%
Emg Curr  25.0%

Now I have made another big shift in my portfolio. At the seminar you’ll see my updated portfolio and why I have made these changes.

Most teachers do not actually share their own personal portfolios…  Just as Merri and I share our home and lifestyle, we share how we invest and explain why our portfolio is designed for our circumstances at any one time.

This provides you with two benefits. First, sharing why we adjust our investments helps you understand how to adjust yours.

Second, and most important, we invest real time. The data shared in our courses is about global investments you can make in the here and now. What you learn is not dated theory, but up to the minute fact! Many delegates come to course after course to update their portfolios.

We share our most valuable sources of information as well.

For example, Thomas Fischer Senior VP of Jyske’s Global Asset Management group will join us from Copenhagen to speak about where to place your current international investment allocation… along with four others… six of our friends and most valued sources if data… will be on hand to help you.

My personal investment adviser Anders Nielsen, also with Jyske, will be on hand to speak privately and answer any of your personal questions.  Our friend and tax attorney of more than 20 years, Joe Cox will share information at the seminar as well.

multi-currency-debt

Here I am with Anders at a previous global investment session.

Here are a few of the international investing and business subjects we review at this course.

#1: How 100 years of global economics can enhance your international investments and international business now. Learn how history reveals currency distortions that create international investment opportunities to borrow low and deposit high. For example right now you can borrow Japanese yen at below 3%, Swiss francs below 4% to invest in international investments, international business, international real estate or other international currencies that pay 5%, 6%, 7% and even more. In one case we’ll show why it is smart to borrow Swiss francs at 3.75% and invest in international Brazilian bonds that pay up to 10% or more!

Subjects in the international investments sessions include a review of global stock markets, international currencies and international interest rates and how they are shifting versus the greenback.

Another session looks at where to find the best value international investments globally right now, plus how to spot the hottest international investment trends before they become hot.

We also cover how to cash in on currency shifts by making international investments through the Multi-Currency Sandwich (Borrow Low-Deposit High) tactic. This is a perfect time for such international investments using diversification of currencies and taking advantage of the currency distortions that now plague investors around the world.

Currency experts from Jyske Bank (Thomas Fischer was a currency trader for many years and Jyske is one of the major currency trading banks in the world) will provide data at that course on this subject.

We’ll study international investment portfolios that offer the advantage of diversification, in several cases into nine currencies and nine different investments of which more than half have strong A to AAA ratings. We will review any changes made in the international investments portfolios we track and update what and how currencies and interest rates may move in the months ahead.

#2: We’ll look at international investments in emerging stock markets and emerging bond markets as well. 2007 was the seventh consecutive calendar year in which international investments in emerging markets outperformed developed markets. In 2007 the MSCI overall Emerging Markets benchmark was up 23.8 % in US dollars compared to the MSCI World Total Return Index being down 0.08 % in US dollars.   See why 2008 fared worse for emerging markets and how this creates more potential value.

In 2008 emerging markets fell faster and further than major markets… but once again in 2009 they led the global investment pack.  Anders Neilsen, my Jyske account manager, is one of Jyske’s bond experts and will be on hand to answer bond questions.

This February’s International invest sessions look at which blend of emerging and major markets may work best in 2010.

How profitable? Though Jyske Global Asset Managers have been extremely conservative this year, their managed portfolios have risen between 12.2% and 34.4% depending of the risk profile and the size of arrangement.

Those with more emerging markets in 2009 made even more.  The emerging markets index (in US dollars) was up 58.99% compared to 23.05% for the major market index. Over three years the index on emerging markets was up 37.88% versus 17.27% for the world index. The emerging market index was up 35.63% compared to the world’s index rise of 18.43% over five years.

Then emerging markets recorded their highest ever quarterly returns in the second quarter 2009, and posted strong gains for the third quarter, up 37.4% in three months, which ranked as the ninth best in equity market history.

You’ll learn why in 2009 we were investing in BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China).These 4 countries now generate approximately 27% of the world´s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  The average annual GDP growth of a BRIC nation was greater than 7% before the recession, as compared to approximately 2% for a G-7 nation.  In the first three quarters of 2009, the growth rate for the Chinese economy beat expectations with an outstanding 8.9%.   We’ll look at a special BRIC trading idea in our 2010 seminars.

#3: One session will especially focus on international investments in alternate energy and water. For example we’ll see why Hyflux (water cleaning membranes mainly in China ) rose from $1.50 to $5 in less than a year (and why it then fell dramatically). We’ll see why water shares are destined to grow. We’ll look at Vestas (windmills) shares also up from $50 to $106. Plus we’ll update our Green Portfolio. These shares are especially interesting now as they were especially depressed in the global meltdown.

This course goes far beyond just international investments in stocks, bonds and currencies. Other sessions cover:

#3: How to cash in on distortions in international real estate from Ecuador to Lithuania! We have gained much more than just profit and international business and international investing opportunity in our international real estate searches. We have gained incredible luxury, heart- warming sweetness, breath-taking beauty, much better health and pleasant surprises at every turn. Having lived, worked and played in Ecuador now for over a decade and a half, we’ll focus heavily there, but Ecuador real estate opportunity is just one small part.

For example we’ll see how to own Ecuador and Smalltown USA real estate for pleasure and profit.

The third session of the course looks at how have an international business for fun and profit.

Merri and our webmaster, David Cross join me in the third part of the seminar to look at how to have a small international internet business.

This portion of the seminar is highly practical and usable because it focuses on how to start really small…with minimal investments of time and capital.

Plus we show how to stay small (yet highly profitable) if desired. International business sessions include:

#1: How to have an International and Ecuador Import-Export Business anywhere.

We’ll especially zero in on Ecuador export business opportunities in carved wood, ceramics from Cuenca, carpets from Guano, silver and gold jewelry from Chordeleg, paintings and art, textiles from Otavalo, leathers from Cotacatchi and flowers from the Andes . For example you’ll learn how factories make bread dough jewelry that can be fashioned into high school and college mascots and purchased for pennies apiece (to be sold for dollars abroad). You see how the only native American owned mill produces coats, shirts, sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves in school colors of your choice (at really low prices). These can be sold for ten times their cost.

Here is what one delegate to our course wrote: “Warm greetings for you and Merri! I’ll be on that list of Millionaire women very soon, thanks to your wonderful guidance and tips. Thank you SO MUCH for the good work that you both do!!!”

Another shared this: “I love to travel, but since I’m not independently wealthy, I also need to make money. I made one of my dreams come true. I went to Ecuador . I attended Gary & Merri Scott’s import/export seminar, we visited artists, markets and villages. It was a treat to see the great variety of handmade items and meet the friendly artists. I started to see the possibilities. I filled my suitcases in no time. Most of those things were sold to coworkers and friends and covered the costs of my trip. Yeah!”

“I returned to Ecuador in October. I spent two weeks attending Spanish classes in Quito and the next two weeks shopping. Once home, I sold my goods at an international bazaar and again paid for my trip expenses.

“Do I plan to continue? You bet! I have ideas for other places to sell my goods and some great material for travel articles. I am learning more each trip and gaining experience and confidence and most importantly, I love doing it! Attending your workshop was the catalyst that gave me the courage to take the plunge. Thank you for enriching my life.”

#5: How to write and use publishing, seminars and how to use international internet opportunities to create your own global business from your home. You can run your global business from an office or at home! The internet makes this more possible than ever before.

In the course we use case studies of what we are doing now to show how to start small and grow on the internet! Imagine this. Merri and I have a tiny international business. Just two of us run this operation from a remote farm in the Blue Ridge, a small village in Ecuador and the Florida countryside. Yet our website is ranked among the top 20,000 sites in the USA.

By starting small and building with stepping stones and harmonious foci we now almost own several profit generating phrases at Google.

At the course, we look at how we use the Seven Ps (Person, Problem and Promise, Product) to zero in on key phrases. Then we use the Fifth P Promise to develop new customers. The Sixth P the Prospecting Path and Seventh P the Presentation we use at the internet.

This knowledge has really helped previous course delegates. Here is what one previous delegate just shared:

“Gary , I have been working on my website, healthy-holistic-living.com site and I figure it is time for another update. It is really hard to believe it, but my site just keeps growing and growing and I am now averaging 2000 visitors per day!

“What I find to be most amazing is that in just a few short months my site is #1 out of over a million sites and sometimes even millions of sites! As you always say the internet is the ‘Great Equalizer’ anybody given the right tools can compete on the internet.“

You will learn how to use the same system to expand (or start) your business globally!

#6: How to Cash in on Smalltown USA.

We’ll look at properties for sale in Central Florida. These areas have two unique features. First, they offer great real estate value. Second, they are great places to visit and live and do business.

Many readers combine a trip to our Florida or Blue Ridge courses with a chance to look around and inspect some property for sale.  Learn how demographics and population push (plus the water) and new Florida investments that have come to this area are likely to make this a hot spot in the decade ahead.  In Florida they often visit Orlando about an hour away… plus look at the great lake front properties available at really low prices.

We’ll introduce you to brokers we have used in Florida at the seminar.

#7: How to use the latest tax savings and offshore legal structures to gain the ultimate asset protection. Learn how to gain more than cash-freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self-sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction…by combining very small amounts of money with your time and energy in an international business.  Our friend and attorney for more than 20 years… Joe Cox will be on hand to speak and answer your questions also.

Previous course delegates have included business people, brokers and professionals, doctors, dentists, lawyers, retirees, couples wanting to get into international business together, insurance agents and marketers who want to enhance their existing business or build a second sources of income through international investments and international business.

Ecuador Currency


Ecuador’s currency is the US dollar.

When Merri and I first arrived in Ecuador the currency was the sucre and it took 3,000 sucre to buy one dollar.  About five years after we arrived the sucre had dropped to about 8,000 sucres to buy a US dollar.  Then a decade ago the Ecuadorian economy went into self destruct and the sucre collapsed all the way to 25,000 sucres per dollar.

ecuador-real-estate-for-sale

The dollar still goes a long way in Ecuador. You can still buy beach condos like this for under $24,000.

This created incredible real estate bargains.  I began buying Ecuador real estate which is one reason I can sell Ecuador real estate now at below the market and still make a decent profit.

ecuador-real-estate

Large fixer upper houses like this in the Andes can still sell for less than $29,000.

However getting out of the sucre into the greenback was in a way like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire…. because since then the US dollar has dropped a lot in value compared to other currencies such as the euro.  Excerpts from our latest Multi Currency portfolio report show this fact.  Here is what that message said:

Since we are beginning a new decade it makes sense to look back a decade at the past multi currency action.

A reader just sent this note:  Dear Gary, I am worried by the breaking news that the “Bolivarian Alliance” is creating its own currency.

The news says:   “Countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) agreed to introduce regional common currency, the SUCRE…”During the ALBA summit on Dec. 13 (In Cuba), nine member countries including Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Venezuela announced the introduction of new virtual currency in January 2010.”  Thanks.

These countries have been announcing this type of stuff for quite some time.

You can see a 2007 article I wrote about this at Ecuador Currency Opportunity.

Announcements by governments are easy.  Actions not so much so.  Getting all these countries to actually do something together is not such an easy task.  Not much has happened from the 2007 announcement and I do not expect much to happen from the 2009 announcement.

Most of the countries above face enormous social and economic challenges in the decade ahead.  Keeping their own currency stable will be hard enough.  Creating a new one easy… but maintaining it hard.  Getting all these nations to work together to create one currency seems pretty unlikely.

The European Union and euro whose nations enjoyed  much greater economic success and stronger political stability, than the nations above took decades to create. The euro was driven by a real fear… a repeat of WW I and WWII.   Yet the euro has taken many decades to form.

Should we expect quick action for a union by Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Venezuela? Remain watchful but do not expect anything too soon.

A better way to answer the US dollar dilemma  is to invest in the best value BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and speculate on the ups and downs of their value.

Here are excerpts from a recent Multi Currency Update I sent to our multi currency portfolio subscribers.

BRIC currencies make sense because these countries are still viewed as emerging markets… but they now are major economies.

Together, these four countries generate approximately 27% of the world´s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The BRIC economies are also growing faster than in the Western world.  The average annual GDP growth of a BRIC nation was greater than 7% before the recession, as compared to approximately 2% for a G-7 nation.

The future growth of the global economy depends largely on the BRIC economies continuing growth.

The simplest way to invest in BRIC economies is with a BRIC ETF like iShares MSCI BRIC Index Fund. This ETF tracks the MSCI BRIC Index and invests in about 260 different companies in these four countries.  Invest and leave the investment alone for long term growth.

Jyske Global Asset Management recommends BRIC allocation as below :

If you have a Low Risk profile                  : up to 5%
If you have a Medium Risk profile          : up to 10%
If you have a High Risk profile                : up to 15%

A more complicated but potentially more profitable approach is to weight your investments more heavily in the good value BRIC countries and sell shares in the BRICS with poor value.

Heavier speculation  could buy the good value BRICS and short the low value BRICS.

For example you can see below why right now may be a good time to sell investments in India and invest in China.

Learn how to read this entire update on why to sell these BRICS now as a Multi Currency subscriber.

A March 2009 report entitled “Ecuador Economic Worries” shows why the dollar’s fate is not so important to Ecuador when it says:

A number of readers have sent questions about Ecuador economic worries. One regular Ecuador economic worry I receive is that Ecuador will stop using the US dollar as its currency.

There is little doubt that Ecuador’s economy is in a mess.

Which economy is not?

We’ll look at this Ecuador economic worry in a moment, but to put this worry into perspective, may I share some other economic worries at the same time… plus post some photos from our friend, Dennis Goff… such as this shot from a boutique hotel in Manta, Ecuador where you can stay for $52 a night.

ecuador-economic-ideas

Ecuador has economic worries, yes, but are they worse than the economic worries in Europe or the US?   The photos show that while we worry we can be in paradise on a shoestring budget.

Read the entire article Ecuador Economic Worries here.

You may well wonder why I would make such an offer and ask why the cost is so low? Let me answer this question frankly and from the heart.

First, it helps us do a better job for you. We feel greatly enriched when we can really help our clients improve their lives. We have learned through years of experience the best way to do this is to meet with you regularly. We can best help you learn how to improve your health and wealth through continual expansion of knowledge.

Second, we gain enormous fulfillment from the many friendships we form through the years. Our friends have enriched our lives tremendously. Let me explain this in more detail.

As a member, you will be part of our international family that meets intensively over the next year to examine ways we can make our lives better. Our goal is beyond just having money. Our goal is to have quantum wealth… good health… wealth and fulfillment through service.

Though I give all course delegates my very best, I cannot help but to do a better job for those who come again and again. As we meet often; your particular wants, needs and desires become clear, and it is easier for me to point you in the right direction.

Another phenomenon is that repeat delegates help each other! They get to know one another, help each other learn, share their insights, make contacts and gain more wealth.

Out associates in Ecuador, are experienced business people who live or work and conduct our real estate and export courses.  They can also act as your local backup for the business.

Lifestyle for Two. There is more! I have learned at my courses that many repeat delegates were couples.

We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO!  You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)

Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!

This optional, free Quantum Wealth workshop shows how to apply the intelligence to business, investing and lifestyle.

We have blended this method of gaining increased intelligence and super thinking into our Super Thinking + Spanish for many years but now have added this to our international investing and business seminars to create quantum wealth.

There are at least three simple ways to turn on this super thinking ability:  meditation, listening to 60 cycle music and taking Theanine.
These three steps integrate four categories of brainwaves, ranging from beta waves, the fastest of the four different brainwaves to alpha, theta and the final brainwave state, delta. Delta brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency.  Deep dreamless sleep takes you down to the lowest frequency.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely we gain unimaginable intellect.

Merri and I meditate twice every day to tap into this energy.

Plus we listen to 60 beat ten cycle classical music as we work. You could count the number of times we have missed our meditation routine in the last 20 years on one hand. This helps us enormously.

This type of music, along with deep breathing exercises for relaxation moves the mind into Alpha and deeper states as well.  Health benefits are gained as blood pressure can drop, heart rates slow and the mind becomes calmed.

This is a simple as listening to relaxing Baroque music such as Handel’s Water Music. A few others compositions at this cycle include Corelli’s Concerti Grossi, Op. 6, Violin and Orchestra in No. 2, 8, 5, 9. or J.S. Bach’s Fantasy in C Minor and Trio in D minor or Vivaldi’s Five Concertos for Flute and Chamber Orchestra.

Music has been used for centuries to induce states…babies being lullabyed to sleep, sea chanteys and harvesting songs to ease workers while laboring. Eastern mystics and South American shaman have used music to carry them to unusual states of consciousness.

Your body relaxes and your mind becomes alert in these simple forms of relaxation.

The Soviet psychologist, I.K. Platonov, found it was possible to just use a metronome beating at 60 to enable the mind to take in and hold more strongly.
In choosing a recording of a slow movement, simply check that the tempo is about 60 beats a minute. When a composer writes a piece of music, he indicates the speed at which he wants each of the different movements or segments to be played.

These indications of tempo are generally given in Italian. You will often see them on the different movements of a concerto. For instance, allegro indicates a tempo of around 120 – 168 beats to the minute, andante around 76-108, adagio from around 66 to 76, larghetto 60 to 66 and largo 40-60 beats to the minute. Some performers and conductors may set a tempo somewhat faster or slower than what the composer indicated. To check out the tempo of a recording, be sure it’s at around 60 beats a minute. You can check it with a metronome or against a clock with a second hand. It’s LARGO that we are striving for.

Here is a portion of the music list provided with that study.

Bach, J.S.: Largo from Concerto in G Minor for Flute and Strings. Bach and Telemann Flute Concerts and Aria to The Goldberg Variations.

Corelli, A.: Sarabanda (largo) from Concerto #7 in D Minor.

Corelli: 12 Concerti Grossi op.5

Handel, G.F.: Largo from Concerto #1 in F. Music from the Royal Fireworks.

Telemann, G.: Largo from Double Fantasia in G Major for Harpsichord.

6 Fantasias for Harpsichord Vivaldi, A.: Largo from Winter. The Four Seasons

A third avenue that helps enhance intelligence is Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide) one of the chemicals found in green tea. Theanine is used to reduce stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming agents. Scientific evidence shows that Theanine stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, making the user feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. It also helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan. As might be expected from a calming supplement, Theanine may be able to lower elevated blood pressure as well.

Our Quantum Wealth workshop looks at how to use super thinking to tap into deeper intelligence and what to do with this intelligence in business, investing and life.

This course changes the way a person thinks and learns forever.

Then Merri and I along with Thomas Fischer of Jyske Global Asset Management conduct our three day International Business and Investing Course. See more details of this International Investing & Business course here.

Here are what a few people say about our courses.

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized my expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Hi Gary and Merri,  I wanted to thank you so deeply for a wonderful informative 3 days this past weekend in North Carolina. I learned a lot, was completely stimulated in many realms and found your attitudes, goals and ambitions refreshing and wonderful. So thank you thank you thank you. I was not disappointed. Merri had assured me I would not be and she was right.  I hope to stay in touch and again I thank you so much for the knowledge and life philosophy you shared with us all. Renie

Dear Gary and Merri, We were so excited by all the possibilities that came up at the IBEZ seminar that our 700 mile drive home seemed almost short! My husband and I had an action plan ready to execute as soon as we got home… thanks to the step-by-step guidelines from your webmaster. Thanks for showing us a road map leading into an exciting, profitable future. Priscilla

I would like to thank you and Gary for a wonderful course. We thoroughly enjoyed all the information presented by Gary, Thomas and David. And we thank you for your hospitality with having us to your lovely “piece of paradise” in North Carolina. The lunch was delicious and your presentation of import/export items was quite interesting. We look forward to visiting Ecuador in September of 2010. And we look forward to visiting and staying at your hotel in Cotocatchi. Thank you again for a truly life changing and life enhancing weekend. And we also wish your loved ones a speedy recovery and good health. Best regards, Randy

Dear Gary and Merri:  We so enjoyed attending the IBEZ Seminar this past weekend in Jefferson, NC.  We loved the high country area, the nice people we met and particularly enjoyed the visit and tour of the New River Winery. We had a long drive home on Sunday and were sad that we had to leave and not be able to join you and our group for lunch at your farm and sad that we missed Merri’s cooking.  We hope someday in the future we may have the opportunity to visit your property as we heard it is quite beautiful.  Besides all of the relevant information, your emphasis on honesty and the importance of not be deceptive was reassuring.  The bottom line is, that what gave real value to the information we were receiving and what made us feel comfortable was, that we felt you, Thomas and David were all people of good character.  Something that is very important to us.  Thank you, Gary and Merri, for providing a wonderful Seminar.  Mike

International Investing & Ecuador


International business and investments can enhance profits. We have proven this by sharing ideas on global investing for over 41 years.

Here I am conducting a weekend International Business and investing Course. Just then I was talking about how to have a real global business importing roses (and showing samples just brought in from Ecuador ).

International-Investments

This particular day we invited everyone up to our home. It was crowded but the delegates loved it!

As you can see we are pretty casual at our courses. This may be different than most but this is what we try to share…ways to be different for fun and profit.

International-Investments

I conduct most of our International Investing and business seminar along with Thomas Fischer from Jyske Bank. We cover global economies, markets and currencies.  Here is Thomas speaking to the group.

International-Investments

Plus we talk about exports. Merri started in the export business, bring products from Italy Germany and Mexico.

One day during our seminar we have lunch for afternoon tea at our house.   Here is a group lounging on our front porch In North Carolina.  Delegates were enjoying a great end to a  summer day in the Blue Ridge. One of our horses decided to join in.

International-Investments

Our Appaloosa “Lucy” listens in (or does she want an apple?).

International-Investments

“Blaze” and “Harriet” join the course as well.

We share a lot about international investments and global business over three days.  Delegates love this course and return again and again. I know one in the group was attentive. Ma, our pumpkin patch hound. Now you can see why dogs are called man’s best friend.

International-Investments

Here are what a few of the delegates shared

“Thank you for a wonderful experience. The whole package was great: the informative, stimulating, life-affirming conference that opened our minds to global possibilities; the luscious, natural, wholesome, lovingly-made food that nourished us with God-given energy; the crisp, prana-filled, tree-fed mountain air that reminded us that it is a pleasure to breathe in and connect to our earth, to ourselves; and last but not least, your hospitality. Thank you.”

“Dear Gary and Merri: Please receive my most heartfelt thank you for the wonderful time I spent in NC. The countryside is picture perfect and your farm is an idyllic retreat, with pine tree forests, streams, a lagoon, and the horses and geese to wrap it up. The group was wonderful and very warm to our projects. It couldn’t have gone better. Your friend

”Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity. I really enjoyed to be there.  Your conference was excellent. My drive from Jefferson Landing took me 2 hrs 12 min. It was a beautiful one. We (my wife and I) safely arrived to Hungary. When we got here we learned about the Sunday night riots and turmoil. Do not worry about us the country is perfectly safe and calm. This was only a pre election political tactics. However this incident confirms my view about any government. We have to be careful and never trust any government. These recent Hungarian incident proved Gary’s point about diversification and about multi currency and about multi market sandwiches. Thank you very much again”.

“Good Morning Merri & Gary: I sincerely enjoyed the three days spent and was thoroughly motivated by the knowledge imparted during the three days.”

“ Gary, We were pleased to be able to be at the IBEZ seminar this past weekend and we enjoyed it immensely. Thanks once again.”

Ambato Condos & Apartments For Sale


Here is a paid advertisement for Ambato Ecuador condos & property for sale.

ambato-ecuador-real-estate-for-sale

Ambato Ecuador condos and commercial shops… Ecuador income producing property for sale.

Ambato is one of Ecuador’s important cities but has been largely ignored by expats.  This gives readers a chance to have income producing real estate at a lower price than you’ll typically find in Quito, Cuenca or Cotacachi.

ambato-ecuador-real-estate-for-sale

These are Ambato condos and income producing properties with this view.

San Juan de Ambato is a city of about 150,000 (half the size of Cuenca) located two hours + (depending on how fast you drive) south of Quito in the central Andean corridor.

The city is cut by the Ambato River and surrounded by tall mountains. This is the capital of the province of Tungurahua and is at an elevation of 7,500 feet (about the same as Cotacachi).  It is called the “City of Flowers and Fruit” and “Garden of Ecuador.”

Ambato’s economy includes fruit, tanneries, food products and textiles plus is a main transportation hub, since the Pan-American Highway passes through there.

The city of Ambato was founded in the late 1600s and declared independence from Spain in the early 1800s.  Ambato was the seat of the first printing press in Ecuador; this was originally installed in 1670 by Jesuit missionaries to print copies of the Bible.

Construction here is very solid due to a massive earthquake many years ago. It is described as one of the most earthquake-resistant places on earth.

Ambato is a modern city because all old buildings were destroyed by the earthquake.

Ambato enjoys a mostly warm and sunny climate. The average temperature during most of the year stays between 60 to 70 degrees F.

The views from these condos cover most of Ambato.
