Every spare minute I have goes into charting, reading the headlines or trying to figure out where the dollar will go next. The purpose of this website is to bring to you the most interesting videos and articles I find in the world of business and finance and, of course, my podcast. I go out and speak with the experts in the field and bring you their analysis so you can have an edge in your everyday trading.
This is perhaps the greatest financial presentation I have seen (and trust me when I say I have seen a lot of them). Grant Williams has a mastery of the subject matter and can easily add humor along with one mind-boggling point after another. Brilliantly done, Grant.
The average medical cost for a family of four in the U.S. is $28,166 in 2018. That's up about $5,000 from 2013. My guess is that 40-60% of this is just monopoly pricing power by hospitals and pharma. https://t.co/r2R4n8cXrW— Matt Stoller (@matthewstoller) May 23, 2018

In this episode Jesse Felder joins Jill to talk about the FANG stocks, comparing this recent frenzy to the dot com mania. What happens if the winds change and the FANGs stop rising day after day? We also discuss the "Everything Bubble," what it is and what you can do to protect yourself from falling victim to it.
My guest this episode is Tim Knight, who has been a trader since 1987. Knight founded Prophet, a web-based technical analysis company that was acquired by Investools (and, later, Ameritrade) in January 2005. In his professional role as a hedge fund manager today, Tim relies on technical analysis as the primary basis for his investment decisions. He also hosts a daily show on the TastyTrade network, Trading the Close. The interesting thing about Tim is he is not only a great chartist, but he is also a permabear. (Even if you eternally optimistic about the markets you can still gain insights from Knight.) In this episode we discuss charting, how Tim got his start in the business, his thoughts on the Federal Reserve and if he thinks the next crisis is just around the corner.

He writes for Agora Financial and is the editor of Jim Rickards' Gold Speculator. He is a gold and mining expert that was a presenter at the Sprott Natural Resource Conference in Vancouver, BC, where I was able to interview him. King explains what problems he sees on the horizon, why commodity prices have been going lower and why he is begging you to add gold and silver to your portfolio.

This interview took place on the phone August 12, 2018.
