Commodities Boom Only In ‘Early Innings’by Adam Taggart
Back in December, Saxo Bank’s Steen Jakobsen predicted a massive boom in commodity prices was dead ahead. Not many others shared that view back then.
But, boy, was he ever right.
Commodity prices have exploded in the five months since that interview was recorded.
And more important, in Steen’s eyes we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. He predicts commodity prices are going to continue heading higher, a LOT higher, from here.

The Many Ways We’re Being Manipulatedby Adam Taggart
Every hour of every day, we’re bombarded by attempts to influence our behavior — what to buy, how to vote, what to click on next…
And most of the time, we are completely oblivious to them.
As humans, we have psychological triggers that, once activated, make us much more vulnerable to the schemes of marketers, politicians and anyone else looking to manipulate us — as well as to separate us from our freedoms and our money.
Nobody understands the science of persuasion better than Dr. Robert Cialdini, famously known as “The Godfather of Influence”. In today video — which is one of my favorite interviews I’ve done so far — he identifies the specific techniques being used to pull our strings, and explains how to best defend against them.
When The Market Unravels There Will Be “No Place To Hide”by Adam Taggart
Few people alive understand how Capitol Hill and Wall Street work better than former Congressman and financier David Stockman.
And he is deeply concerned that our current political, monetary and fiscal policies are setting the stage for an epic breakdown in the economy as well as the financial markets.
Bond Market Troubles Will Take Away The Fed’s Printing Pressby Adam Taggart
Those cheering today’s sky-high asset prices say they don’t worry because “the Fed has the market’s back”
And they haven’t been wrong to-date. There’s no doubt that the Fed’s $trillions in monetary stimulus has pushed the prices of stocks, bonds, real estate and nearly every other asset class to all-time highs.
But the Fed’s ability to print money with impunity may not last forever. In fact, veteran money manager Bill Fleckenstein warns it could end this year.
We’re In Uncharted Territoryby Adam Taggart
Investigative journalist Bethany McLean is an expert on crisis.
She has written New York Times best-selling books on the collapse of Enron (The Smartest Guys In The Room) as well as the mortgage industry and Wall Street abuses that led to the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (All The Devils Are Here and Shaky Ground).
So when she says she’s deeply worried about today’s macro environment, we’d better take notice.
“This Looks Like The Market Peak”by Adam Taggart
Stocks, houses, commodities, Bitcoin – the price of nearly everything is up double digits vs last years pre-coronavirus highs.
Have the trillions in stimulus ushered in a new bull market in, well, everything? Or have they helped blow the biggest asset price bubble in history?
Macro analyst Wolf Richter suspects the latter. And he doesn’t think we have much time left before it bursts.
Surviving Burnoutby Adam Taggart
Burnout often results when the demands of our work and/or our lives become mismatched to our capacities as human beings.
As many of us are working harder for longer in an uncertain economy while simultaneously juggling the responsibilities we have in our personal lives, it’s not hard to see that it’s increasingly easy for that mismatch to occur.
In this podcast, we learn effective strategies for coping with burnout — including ways to avoid it altogether — from Dr. Jacinta Jiménez, a Stanford trained, award winning, licensed psychologist and author of the newly-published book, The Burnout Fix.
Want To Invest In Farmland? Here’s Howby Adam Taggart
Farmland is a “holy grail” asset class for many investors.
It’s tangible, produces income, and has inherent underlying value — making it a great inflation hedge.
And even better, it offers the chance to do well by doing good. There are increasing opportunities to convert poorly-managed conventional farmland to organic status through sustainable practices AND command much higher profits in the process. Smart farmers are now able to create superior business while healing the soil at the same time.
So, how can you get access to this attractive asset class?
Farmland investor Craig Wichner explains how in this week’s Market Update.
