There’s a little trinket you can buy when visiting the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington D.C. Many school children on field trips often take a bag of it home with them for a souvenir. You may have seen one before.
Its a little clear plastic bags of shredded U.S. currency. I actually have one sitting on my desk. But while many of these kids are fascinated with these small bags of money, little do they know that they are literally holding their future in their hands.
The virtual destruction of the U.S. dollar—and dozens of other currencies worldwide—is happening right now as world leaders and central banks around the globe appear to be carrying out a massive orchestrated suicide attack on their own currencies.
In the last 12 years alone, the dollar has lost 35% of its purchasing power. The Japanese Yen is down 30% against the dollar just since the first of the year.
Governments around the world are following the U.S. and printing money with impunity—at least for now. Their stock markets are rising, interest rates are at record lows, home prices are recovering, citizens’ are spending and feeling a sense of recovery so all appears to be well right?
Unfortunately the purchasing power of Americans has already been cut by 30% since the financial crisis, and those of other nations around the world are also being seriously eroded by this dangerous game of chicken that only guarantees that those in power get re-elected.
We Break it, We Cry.
You Break it, You Buy.
When I was in school I remember visiting a small consignment shop that had a witty sign on the door. It said “We Break it, We Cry. You Break it, You Buy.”
It was a polite way of saying, that if you break something in the store, you will have to pay for it. Unfortunately in today’s world, where personal responsibility has become an almost obsolete word, the fed and other central bankers have decided to change the meaning of this sign giving it a new twist: We Break it, You Buy!
In other words you and I, our children and grandchildren, and all future generations are going to be paying a long time for the reckless printing of money happening today. (U.S. debt already totals just over $17 trillion)
We’ll be paying with skyrocketing inflation, a lower standard of living for our children, a period of extended economic contraction, deep recessions, and chronically high unemployment just to name a few.
The Biggest Financial Gamble
in the History of World.
It’s already happening. A falling U.S. dollar has eroded the purchasing power of American’s by 35% since the year 2000. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics what you could buy for $1 in the year 2000 now costs you $1.35. All this while U.S. consumers are already struggling to keep up with everyday expenses for food, energy, and soaring student loans.
The dollar has only recently stabilized because the economic situation in Europe is even worse.
What history will say about this worldwide monetary experiment called “quantitative easing” is yet to be seen, but they will talk about the Feds plan that started it all after the financial crisis of 2008. A plan that is quite possibly the biggest financial gamble in the history of free markets.
Then it will be discussed how other nations round the world played follow the leader and tossed the dice themselves hoping to win big and avoid snake eyes in this reckless game of monetary craps.
But then they will have to talk about one country that took it to the next level. I’m talking about…
Japan’s Plan to Print 270 Trillion Yen
by March 2015.
Under a plan announced in April the Bank of Japan is set to double its money supply target to 270 trillion yen by March 2015 by purchasing (printing money) an estimated 7.5 trillion yen of government bonds every month.
This massive stimulus program dwarfs every previous QE program by a long shot. It is the pet project of the Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda whose risky plan is to double the amount of yen in circulation with a goal of generating two percent inflation in two years.
It is the largest QE effort of any nation to date and will equal at least 40 percent of Japan’s GDP, compared to “only” 17 percent for the Fed and their first three QE efforts. In essence, it will do in two years what it has taken the Fed five years to accomplish.
It’s the Fed Plan on Steroids!
The Japanese Yen is already down more than 30% against the U.S. Dollar in 2013 alone. And it’s about to get worse.
Today, total outstanding debt in Japan is more than two-and-a-half times the size of their economy making Japan the most heavily indebted nation in the developed world. Many experts see Japan as the next country most likely to experience a massive economic collapse in the next two years.
Japanese Consumers Could See
Price Increases of 25% to 50%.
It’s anyone’s guess however if and when inflation will skyrocket. That’s the joker in the deck right now. While this aggressive plan will result in a huge devaluation of the yen (already down 30% against the dollar in 2013 alone) helping boost Japan’s exports, the citizens will take it on the chin with significantly higher costs for food, energy, and commodities.
And just like it played out in the U.S., their currency is down significantly since the start of their plan while their stock market has soared. The Japanese market is up a whopping 52% since November 2012 while the yen has fallen more than 30%.
Chinese economists say Japan’s actions will start a currency war. They have called the Central Bank of Japan’s plan to double its monetary base a form of “monetary blackmail.”
The main goal behind the plan may sound familiar. It’s a plan to flood the country with money in an attempt to boost their sagging economy.
Top economists in China are incensed at Japan’s latest plan and are calling on the Peoples Bank of China to retaliate by weakening the Yuan as a way to fight back against Japan’s new currency war.
Bold Monetary Plan Could Cripple Other Nations in the Region
Tsinghua Li, a former advisor to the People’s Bank of China recently said, “The massive monetary stimulus by the Japanese Central Bank could spell doom for other nations in the region.”
Billionaire investor George Soros who has made about $1 billion on the falling yen in the last year recently said “If the yen starts to fall, which it has done, and people in Japan realize that is likely to continue and want to put their money abroad, then the fall may become like an avalanche.”
One of the more dangerous results of these currency wars is that it could jump start a wave of carry-trades where investors borrow money in low-interest yen, and invest it in high-interest rate countries driving up the costs of their goods by making imports much more expensive to their citizens.
A Super Wave of Currency Crashes
Any Investor Can Profit From
While a currency war is a race to the bottom that few win in the long run, fortunes are being made right now by those investing in the demise of these currencies.
I’m not talking only about those with six or seven figure investment portfolios, hedge fund managers or those with risky forex accounts. I’m talking about the average Joes with modest online brokerage accounts, who know little more than how to buy and sell a stocks online.
Those buying one simple investment with symbol YCS about six months ago, are now 48.91% richer. It’s the ProFunds Ultra Short Yen ETF that bets on a falling Japanese yen with two times the leverage. Two other ETFs that short the Japanese yen JYN, and EZJ are up 68.94%, and 39.44% respectively.
Take a look at the chart below and see how as the Japanese Yen was declining in value (FXY or the red line) the ProFunds Ultra Short Yen ETF (YCS or the green line) was soaring.
What’s better is that you could have bought in your basic, no frills online brokerage account, and you could sell it in a second, at any time as well. That’s the beauty of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), the ONLY investments we use here at my new advisory called Cash Cow.
Trying to invest in currencies on your own was very risky and expensive before ETFs came along. But today this is one of the few areas of the market where the power is the hands of the average investor.
For instance did you know that you can short the whole country of Korea with one ticker symbol? For little or no cost?
Or that you could make a simple bet on the coming collapse of the U.S. bond market and rising interest rates?
Want to invest exclusively in Chinese energy stocks, companies that avoid overly aggressive accounting practices, the Brazilian sugar crop, or go three-times long in Italian Treasury bonds? Then there is an ETF that lets do just that. Simply, and affordably.
ETFs Give You The Opportunity
to Make Huge Profits From the Rise
or Fall of Virtually Any Asset Class.
ETF’s virtually changed the landscape for investors when they were first introduced. Here’s just a few of the many ways ETFs put the power of investing into the hands of every investor:
Thanks to ETFs you can cash in on this tremendous opportunity right now.
You are virtually guaranteed an opportunity to make a killing IF you know the right ETF’s to invest in. That’s because…
There’s Always a Currency Bull Market
Investing in currencies is what I call a zero-sum game. Think of it like an old see-saw on the neighborhood playground. If one country’s currency goes down, another must go up. What is stimulus in one country becomes an economic attack in another.
For instance the extraordinary loose monetary policy in the developed world today has resulted in record low interest rates (near or at zero) which has sent a flood of liquidity in search of higher yields.
Similar to those with CDs, money market funds, and savings accounts today who are seeking out REITs, junk bonds, and dividend stocks in an attempt to generate higher income. It’s the same with currency wars though on a much larger scale. In the currency trading arena today, more than $5 trillion worth of legal tenders change hands every day.
Signs of an All-Out Currency War
There is no doubt that today we’re in the midst of a currency war that shows no signs of ending anytime soon. Here’s a few pieces of evidence for those who may be a bit skeptical:
World Bankers are Desperate to Win the Race
to the Bottom and Keep Their Currencies
as Low as Possible...
…they won’t stop at anything, and will run over anyone or any country to make it happen. Even manipulating the price of gold, or trying to eliminate gold as a safe haven currency is not out of the question.
Though we are not suggesting any coordinated conspiracy here, everything points toward the possibility that this could be happening right now. And while it may work in the short term—just like all the printing of money around the world—they can’t hold back the forces of supply and demand much longer. Eventually, gold will become part of a reserve currency basket resulting in much higher prices in the coming years.
Until that happens there are huge opportunities to make big money by following the big money. My more than 30 years in this business has taught me that short term it’s dangerous to buck such powerful worldwide trends even though fundamentally they may make no sense at all.
Of course the media as usual is barking up the wrong tree blaming China’s “subpar” 7.5% growth in the latest quarter (expectations were for 8%). They see the “slowdown” as dampening the demand for gold in the future!
There are some inconvenient truths and facts however, that they seem to have somehow over looked.
While World Governments
Try to Suppress Gold Prices,
Demand by Investors
Has Never Been Stronger.
Is gold being black balled? Not by real investors. Sales of gold coins and silver coins have gone through the roof while the price of the metal temporarily declines.
So what gives? Is this just some great paper gold pyramid scheme being played out by a bunch of rich central bankers and hedge fund managers?
Hedge funds, world governments, and big boys may be playing around with the paper price of gold but main street investors know the real value of gold today and are buying hand over fist.
Just a few weeks ago the U.S. Mint reported 209,000 ounces worth of gold coins were sold in April which is up from just 62,000 reported in March. This is the highest level of sales since December 2009. So far in just the first four months of 2013, over 502,000 ounces of gold coins have been sold which is UP 118% from the same period a year ago.
We’re All Sold Out! Check Back in a Few Months.
In fact demand for gold coins has been so strong that the U.S. mint had to suspend sales of the 1/10th ounce gold coins as its inventory shrank to near zero. In other words, they had no more coins left to sell!
What’s more since the price of gold initally started to fall in April sales of gold bars have also soared. Retail stores worldwide that sell gold jewelry and coins are reporting a frenzy of demand so strong, that they can’t keep enough in stock to satisfy the demand.
Chinese gold imports just hit an all-time record high of more than 225 tons last month alone—and the numbers for the rest of 2013 are expected to exceed even that.
While all this was going on the world’s largest gold backed ETF (the SPDR Gold Trust) posted its biggest monthly outflow of physical gold in more than 8 years unloading more than $6.6 billion in just a few short days.
At the moment the trading in gold by institutions and governments has all the markings of a liquidity grab not unlike what we experienced during the heart of the 2008 financial crisis. Hard assets of all kinds being sold with the proceeds being invested in bonds and the safety of cash. Sellers wanting out, regardless of fundamentals or cost, turning what should have been a normal correction into an outright assault on the metal.
However, the one thing investors can take solace in is that when it comes to political intervention in the financial markets or the artificial debasing of today’s currencies, there are always huge profits to be made somewhere.
And thanks to ETFs average investors can make a fortune on the follow-the-leader, fumbling bumbling monetary policies of world leaders trying to manipulate currencies for their own benefit.

The race to the bottom is really just beginning, but the field is getting more crowded every passing day.

5 Revolutionary New Commodity ETFs to Transform Your Retirement.
Today’s hottest commodity is finally about to make its debut on the American market, and you can be one of the first to get in on it!
We believe they will be the new gold, and that they will outshine practically every other investment in the decade ahead.
But until now, it has been almost impossible to get in on them. You can’t buy them on the normal commodity exchanges. And few companies that mine them today are publicly traded. And the biggest ones are not listed on U.S. Exchanges.
But now thanks to what we believe was one of the most exciting ETF launches to hit markets this decade, you are able to buy into them for just one click or a call to your broker.
Plus in this report we also reveal 4 more of what we believe will be the hottest new commodity ETFs to come along this decade.
The Bond Bombshell: How to Turn the Coming Clash of Markets and Civilization into Breakthrough Profits.
The harsh truth of the matter is the American bond market has already collapsed.
And whether you know it or not your retirement portfolio is still probably entrenched in these bonds.
That’s why I want to send you — FREE of charge — our latest and probably the most important investment report we’ve ever released.
It’s called The Bond Bombshell: How to Turn the Coming Clash of Markets and Civilization into Breakthrough Profits.
Understanding the tumultuous events that we explain in The Bond Bombshell, and how they will play out is critical to your financial future.
They will disrupt the whole order of business…turn conventional investment wisdom on its head…and throw the power over once again from stocks and bonds to commodities and currencies.
This is a monumental flip. One we haven’t witnessed on such a scale in a hundred years. And the way you play it could mean the difference between poverty and investment success.
Protect Yourself and Profit From the Senseless Monetary Policies of Today’s World Leaders
Being in this business for more than 30 years, and authoring more than a dozen books on economics and investing I’ve seen just about everything there is to see on Wall Street. And I can’t blame you for wanting nothing to do with those fat cats any longer.
But sometimes doing nothing is the most costly action you can take—or not take.
The central bankers throughout the world today recklessly participating in these destructive currency wars have only their own self-interests in mind. Their actions will soon cause major financial damage in the not-too-distant future. You can either take action today or let them determine the fate of your financial future.
Though no one knows for sure how all this money printing will affect our future, currency wars will be with us for the foreseeable future and that means you have one of the biggest opportunities to profit that I have seen in more than 30 years.
The next decade has all the makings of being a destructive period for many investors in America and around the world. But for some, it will be a period of great prosperity and wealth accumulation the likes of which they’ve never before experienced.
I want that to be you.
You are now at a crossroads. The question is, what are you going to do about it?
Opportunities like these don’t come around very often. Sometimes all it takes is one or two investments to deliver life changing wealth. I think today is one of those times you need to take decisive action.
Join us now and start cashing in on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
I look forward to personally welcoming you aboard.
