Ted Bauman, an expert in finance, can tell a lot by a quick look at the stock market. He’s so good at it, that he can tell you when it’s about to crash. He has been writing for Banyan Hill Publishing now for some time. Recently, he explained 3 possible outcomes that may arise if the stock market crashes.
Ted Bauman believes that the bull market may continue, but he also had the guts to say it could crash all the same. Everyone likes to get his opinion because of his experience and his proven track record. He went to college in South Africa, and what he learned there for low-risk investment strategies was nothing short of astounding. His newsletters that he writes today here in the United States are all focused on low-risk investing, the financial climate of South Africa.
Banyan Hill was singing praises for Ted Bauman after he published a newsletter that was focused on 3 possible outcomes for a crashing stock market. He talks about three primary areas including a return to the average ratio, yield curve recognition, and crash and bounce. The first one is based upon his opinion that US Stocks are overvalued.
The yield curve recognition has to do with long term interest rates staying low. Ted Bauman says to know the difference between the curves and the short-term yields, is can challenging to recognize. While the S&P could drop more than 25% if there is a crash, a majority shift of the house would impact it more than ever. That’s when we have to think about things.
Thirdly, Ted Bauman says that a rise could follow a drop. A quick drop could occur after rules-based selling. Overall, he says that waiting things out is better, but he always goes back to history to look at similar situations. Panic induced actions is where the markets can really experience a problem. Making decisions that are thought out and well-planned are better than freaking out and making a really bad choice before spending or investing.

Unlike most financial advisors Matt Badiali spent his life building an entire resume as a geologist before he realized he had true potential and skill in the world of finance. He has developed a reputation for himself as an individual who can spot a natural resource stock worth investing in. He recently made a bold claim about silver potentially being a phenomenal investment. Silver, like many other commodities, has recently taken a severe beating. The price was pushed down to $14.15 at the beginning of September. Silver is very close to hitting its 2015 low. Silver had a nice bounce in the first half of 2016, but it could not hold the momentum. Matt Badiali tells investors that the current price action in silver had not been seen since the 2008 Housing Crisis.
Matt Badiali pointed out that the strength in the United States dollar is the reason that we have been witnessing the decline in the precious metals. The dollar tends to be a safe-haven during geopolitical uncertainty. Many countries around the world are facing problems with their currencies devaluing, so they are dumping their own currencies and buying dollars. A strengthening dollar will usually be bad for commodities and they will tend to decline. The strong dollar and weak commodities have been the trend for a good portion of this year.
Matt Badiali tells investors that over the past couple of years cryptocurrencies have gained popularity because there is growing distrust in fiat currencies. He says that people who would have put their money into gold and silver many years ago are choosing the cryptocurrencies instead, which is why the cryptocurrency market skyrocketed in a short period of time. Matt Badiali places a contrarian view on silver. He says the silver prices are historically cheap, and the fundamentals for owning silver have never been stronger. Industrial demand for silver has continued to grow year after year. For us to have our modern economy and with other countries around the world pushing for cleaner energy, the demand for silver will only go higher. At these extremes in silver, it is possible for investors to make serious gains.
