Getting Rich On The Stock Market Trend of The Decade

You're going to have to see this to believe it.

First though, since it's so shocking — let me explain it in these terms…

Imagine if you could buy a Ferrari — for the price of a used Honda Civic. That scenario mirrors the opportunity that has me so excited to write to you about today: Incredible value and quality. Enormous benefit. At pennies on the dollar.

Of course, what you're about to read has nothing to do with buying Ferraris. But it could make you incredibly wealthy…this year.

Over the next two years, you'll witness the greatest surge in gold prices in market history - at least 100% above where gold sits today, as I write this.

I'm so convinced, I'll even make you a guarantee.

More on that guarantee in just a second.

But even better, I've just discovered a way for you to sneak into the soaring gold market for next to nothing, with what I call "penny-per-ounce" gold.

That is, doing this is a "backdoor" way to own as much of a position in gold as you like... for the equivalent of paying a single cent per ounce.

There's no alchemy involved. And no trick.

It's just a gold market "loophole" most investors know nothing about.

I'll show you here in this letter how it works.

It's no skin off my nose if you opt not to do this. I'd just hate to see you miss out. And even if you decide it's not for you, you'll still want to know about the astounding silver stock for 2010 I'll name for you.

You can it pick up right now for a 40% discount to what it should be worth on Wall Street... plus, in this same letter, I'll show you the best way to play gold using the powerful new efficiency of gold-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs)... not to mention, the single best gold stock to own right now and possibly for the next several years, if you choose to own only one.

Here's the clincher...

I'm going to give you all four of these recommendations... and all the information you need to act on them... FREE.

The symbols, the buy and sell targets, and specific step-by-step instructions on what to do. No charge.

Why would I do that? You'll see.

But first, let's dig in and get started...


What if, just before the biggest gold price surge in recent history, you could get your hands on a large stash of the yellow metal... for less than one penny per ounce?

There's no alchemy involved. No secret technology. And no smoke and mirrors. But a small, upstart new mining company is doing exactly that.

Its technique is simple.

But it's just about the only company across the entire mining industry that's able to do this, right now.

In 2005, it mined about 100,000 ounces this way. For 2006, it quadrupled that haul, using this same technique. Now it's on track to be a million-ounce producer... with at least 12 million ounces of gold still in the ground.

The math is simple...

Four Times Your Money Even if Gold Prices Don't Budge Another Inch

Think about it.

Anybody who can get gold out of the ground for a penny...

And sell it for even $500 per ounce or $400 per ounce, stands to make a handsome return. And so do their shareholders.

What I'll show you here is gold hitting as high as $700... a $1000... or even $2,000 per ounce... over the next 12—24 months.

Owning shares of this company could mean at least a 400% gain in that time period, even if only half of what we're calling for comes through.

So here's how this works.

For most miners, getting gold out of the ground is done pretty much the same, across the industry. But not for this wily little company I've been telling you about.

What it's done is invent a way to mine the gold — and rich veins of raw copper — at the same time.

The copper mining is so lucrative, the profits more than cover the cost of pulling the gold out of the same hole. And that means close to 100% upside potential on the gold, no matter what the current spot price on the market.

Any way you slice it, they're booking massive profit.

At Least 2 Years of Locked-in Value, No Matter How High Gold Actually Soars

Right now, this "little" undiscovered new mining company already has five mines up and running. Plus one more under construction. And three more projects after that heading into development.

It also has enormous land holdings with lots of undisclosed mineral potential. Plus, it just swallowed whole another holding with as much as 2 million more ounces of gold in the ground.

Add that to measured and recorded reserves of 12 million ounces... plus another 14 million ounces that are either "inferred" or "proven and probable."

Sound rich?

Don't forget, I haven't even said anything yet about the nearly 2 billion pounds of copper tucked under this company's territory. And copper is the key to this whole secret.

Because it's the steady flow of cash from the copper — remember, this company has innovated a way to get both the copper and gold out of the ground at the same time — that's making the gold production, in relative terms, possible for less than one penny per ounce.

Here's the best part...

This little company's savvy management had the foresight to hedge the entire copper reserve, by making deals that locked in its copper sales at record levels for essentially the next two years.

So even if the global economy keels over and copper prices in general fall, this company will keep on raking it in on their copper discoveries... which means it keeps on getting the gold out of the ground for next-to-nothing at the same time.

Did I mention?

This company has no debt. It's also sitting on a massive pile of cash. And that pile just keeps getting bigger. This is partly why the best stock for 2010 not only has huge upward potential, but it also pays a dividend.

This is a powder keg waiting to pop. With gold prices creeping higher... and then accelerating... this isn't going to stay off mainstream radars for long. You'll need to make a move on this soon.

I want you to have everything you need to make the call, as educated about the pros and cons of this as possible.

So I've commissioned the best experts on my team of analysts to write it up, in a FREE special report I want to send you. It's called Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead!

I'd like to get this into your hands as soon as possible. At no charge. Inside, you'll find out everything you'd want to know about "penny-per-ounce gold." You'll also discover even more brilliant and innovative new ways to get in on the sudden new surge in the yellow metal, inside this same free report.

But maybe, you're already asking yourself...

Why Gold and Why Now?

Before I rush you that FREE report, let me ask you this...

Do you remember the last time gold sold for over $2,000 an ounce?

Of course you do. Maybe you didn't think of that way. But actually, gold has already sold for more than $2000 per ounce. Let me show you.

First, you have to think for a moment like it's 1971. Gold is selling for $35. This is the year Nixon breaks it from ties to the dollar. Gold prices start climbing. By 1975, it's hit $196. And by 1980, we're talking $850. Sure, you say, that I remember.

But maybe you also remember, back then you could also make $27,700 a year and it was a pretty decent living. About as good as making $100,000 per year today.

You could also buy a house for $50,000 then and, just on an inflation basis, it would be worth $250,000 today. (In real estate terms, it might sell now for $500,000 or more). And back then, you could retire on $270,000 in savings... and it would be as good, today, as being a millionaire.

So you can see, trying to compare yesterday's gold price to today's — on an even basis — is like trying to compare apples and armadillos!

In today's dollars, 1975 gold at $196 is more like $750 in the current market. And 1980 gold, the peak year at the historical price of $850, would now clock in closer to $2,176. And remember, this is only what you get using the most conservative market calculation of gold's worth. There are other, even more telling ways to value gold.

Try this on for size...

$38,349 per Ounce!

Remember, for a good part of America's history, every dollar in your pocket was a dollar backed by gold. So it's not so crazy to ask yourself... if America has 8,180 tons - or nearly 261.7 million ounces - of gold in reserve... how many dollars does that buy?

The answer will shock you.

When dollars became unhinged from gold, the printing presses at the Fed cranked up. By 1980, for every ounce of gold in America, the financial system carried $6,966 in cash. That's $1.8 trillion total. But get this, by the end of 2005, the total real money supply shot to over $10 trillion.

That's $38,349 in circulation for every ounce of gold in reserve!

Of course, it's even higher now. The printing presses are still cranking, well into 2008. Only now, it's much harder for you to know how fat the actual money supply has gotten. See, by March 23, 2006... the number had gotten so embarrassing... the Fed actually "retired" a number called "M3," which was the most broad-reaching measure of how much cash floats around in the system.

Yep. Instead of fixing the problem, the politicians just stopped talking about it. Is that any surprise? Fortunately, you don't need Washington's help to get the real picture of what's happening today in the economy... or to find out what's next for the price of gold.

Because you can just read on and see for yourself...

Precious Metals Megatrend: 3 Charts and the Truth

I'm about to show you three charts.

Take a look at these first two side by side...

A hundred different snapshots could show you the mess we're in. Soaring personal and government debt. A plunging savings rate. Record-high mortgages as a percentage of GDP. Plunging yields on 10-year Treasuries. Soaring but "hidden" unfunded government liabilities, to the tune of $53 trillion...

But none show it better — and more plainly — than these two I'm showing you right here, above. The first is our skyrocketing money supply. The second is our plummeting purchasing power. That's about as plain as you need to get.

How so?

Because this is the starkest vision you'll ever get of the absolute carnage that's piling up in a "secret war" Washington's fighting right now... and has fought, unsuccessfully, for the last 20 plus years. No, not the war in Iraq. Or Afghanistan. Or even some possible future conflict with Iran.

This is another kind of war... right here at home.

The enemy is the dark nemesis of a dead and stagnant economy. And the Fed secretly fights to hold it off desperately every single day. This is a worse enemy than recession. It's the enemy called deflation, an economy where nothing moves and nobody buys a thing.

The weapon of choice in this ongoing secret war is to flood the market with cash and easy credit. Because regular cash and credit injections make everyone feel rich. The theory goes, when you've got cash and low-priced credit, companies borrow and expand. Consumers borrow and spend. Families borrow and buy homes.

Which is why, since 1950, the total amount of money in circulation has soared well over 3,000%! And it's all good... or seems good... until it goes all wrong.

See, the trouble is even money can't escape the natural law of supply and demand. When there's too much of it floating around, each dollar is worth that much less relative to the whole. Suddenly, you've got price inflation.

Suddenly, every dollar you have in the bank is worth less.

Hemingway called it the "first panacea of a mismanaged nation."

And in our case, it's helped plummet the purchasing power of our dollars by a mind-blowing 96%. The dollar's worth today is just pennies compared with what it bought a century ago. In fact, its worth is just a fraction now — as we just demonstrated — compared to the last time gold prices boomed, in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Only now, unlike then, the "wiggle room" we have left now between us and a complete dollar implosion is so thin it's practically transparent. Could total implosion actually happen? Absolutely.

Take what relatively new Fed Chairman professor Ben Bernanke famously said in a speech at the National Economists Club in Washington, in November 2002...

Like gold, U.S. dollars have value only to the extent that they are strictly limited in supply. But the U.S. government has a technology, called a printing press (or, today, its electronic equivalent) that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost... We conclude that under a paper-money system, a determined government can always generate higher spending and hence positive inflation.

In other words, if you want to juice an economy... turn on the printing presses and make it as easy as all get-out to borrow money at a low, low rate of interest. Bernake and others in the Fed think that's no problem. They think they can handle it, just so long as short-term interest rates don't go to zero.

But a brilliant and famous colleague of mine — someone I'll introduce you to in just a second — completely disagrees. Flooding the market with easy money, he recently told me in private, is more like burning your furniture to keep warm. It cannot last as a stopgap measure. It's courting disaster.

He and I both like to think an even smarter economist, Ludwig von Mises, got it right instead, when he said...

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of the voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.

See, thanks to all that Fed-driven loose credit, consumer debt has soared. It's never been higher. In 1987, when Alan Greenspan first took his job in Washington, consumers where in the hole by about $10 trillion. Where are they now? An unbelievable $37.3 trillion in the red - or nearly 350% of GDP!

Think about that.

As a whole, Americans owe 3½ times more than the entire U.S. economy — the largest in history — produces in a year. If you or I owed that much on a personal level, we'd be suicidal.

Meanwhile, the government doesn't seem to worry. It spends money even faster. It borrows even deeper. Even this administration now, with full knowledge of the implications of a credit disaster, has already borrowed more money since 2000 than every White House since the time of Washington!

By 2017 - says the Heritage Foundation - our federal deficits should be soaring by at least $1 trillion per year. After that, it will jump to $2 trillion. That's not how much we'll owe. It's how much we'll add to what we owe... every 12 months, for as far as the eye can see.

Doesn't that sound, to you, like we're at a turning point?

Then, they had Paul Volker, who crushed inflation. Today, we've got Ben Bernanke, who embraces it. Then, they had a national debt of just $845 billion. Today, it's between $8.2 trillion and $53 trillion, depending on who you believe.

Then, we had a hostage crisis in Iran. It ended. Today, we've got Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Nigeria, Afghanistan... and an unending "war on terror." Plus bin Laden still hiding in caves and Chavez mouthing off in oil-rich Venezuela.Then, you paid 78 cents for gas. It recently hit the highest recorded price at $4.05. Oil then cost $38 per barrel. Today, it's closer to $130. Then, the oil shortage was political. Today, it's physical - supply just can't meet higher demand.

Then, the weak dollar still bought more than the dollar today. And our only real economic competitor was Japan. Now you've got China, India, the euro... and a resurgence in Japan.

Brace yourself. Because while this might spell doom for most Wall Street stocks of 2010, it virtually guarantees a global resurgence for resource investments, silver and especially gold. Protect your wealth and grow your riches with the cutting-edge resource recommendations in Outstanding Investments.

If There's a Crossroad on The Way to Catastrophe...This Is It!

Here's the third chart I promised you.

And though you might not know it at first glance, this one is a doozy...

This is what's called a "yield-curve inversion."

The recent one you're looking at above first happened on Dec. 28, 2005... and it has remained inverted... on this last occasion, it's basically been upside-down for the last few months. This is bad. How bad?

Think dynamite and a tripwire.

See, normally a yield-curve inversion should be an extremely rare event. Until very recently, it's only happened six times since 1970. And guess what... five out of those six times, a major recession followed within the year.

This is so precise an indicator of recession, in fact, that it has only been wrong once in the past 40 years. One study published by the New York Federal Reserve pegged it as a better measure of what will happen to the U.S. economy than the U.S. stock market of 2010 or any other general index of other leading indicators.

Translation: When the curve flips, we'd better listen.

On the day of this inversion above - practically at the moment the lines crossed - the Dow plunged 105 points. What happens the next time, when the curve inverts not just for an afternoon, but for a week or more? Or months at a time?

This is like holding back a flood with a cork. The longer the yield curve is out of balance, the bigger the disaster that follows. And there's only one way to stop a yield-curve inversion from happening.

The Fed has to slash short-term rates. Will they?

Bernanke would love to. In fact, he's done some cutting already.

But he's trapped between a rock and a hard place.

Slashing the rates means an even bigger dollar collapse. And even higher credit debt, at a time when few Americans can afford it. It would also mean less overseas confidence in the U.S. economy. And that alone could spark a whole new wave of disaster.

See, when all those overseas bondholders out there see the United States disintegrating its economic base, that's all she wrote! They'll start dumping the dollar and our debt investments with abandon. I'm sure you're smart enough to see where this is headed...

That kind of unraveling is the perfect recipe for $2,000 gold. Which is why I want to make sure you're in a good strong position before this next radical power move in gold unfolds...


This next move is easily one of the best ways anybody can double their money in 2008. You rarely see something this close to a pure play.

At the center is a town so tiny, it may as well be the end of the world. And what, just seven years ago, used to be one of the tiniest junior mining companies in the industry.

Today, both are suddenly sitting on what could be $27 billion worth of unprocessed gold — "that's like finding more gold than the government stores in Fort Knox, all in one location" says one of my smartest investment research colleagues.

Nobody imagined it was down there.

At best, they all thought, they've got just 7 million ounces.

Not only were they wrong, but suddenly this junior miner doesn't look so "junior" any more. Because it now owns one of the largest single gold deposits in the world, with as much as 33 million ounces underground.

Thanks to a partnership with one of the world's largest senior mining companies, this once-undiscovered firm can get that gold out of the ground for about $233 per ounce.

At today's gold prices, that's pure profit of as much as $700 or more.

Here's what's truly incredible...

The $40 Billion Treasure Wall Street Forgot

This same firm has another 13 billion pounds of copper tucked underground, just south of the border of the Yukon, deep in the north of British Columbia.

Up until recently, it cost too much in water and electricity to get that copper out of the ground. And that knocked the wind out of this firm's share price when investors figured costs would spiral out of control.

I don't know if you've paid attention, but copper demand — and prices — have exploded in recent months. That's completely changed the equation.

One of the massive gold miners — I can't say which one or it would give away too much — offered $16 per share just to buy this company and their options on these two mineral-rich properties outright.

If they just made that offer again, without any other changes in the company's outlook, you're talking an instant 94% gain in the shares just since the start of this year.

That alone is enough to nearly double every dollar invested.

Before the end of 2008.

But feel free to expect a much bigger move this year, especially as those 33 million ounces of gold and 13 billion pounds of copper come online.

While you can't wait too long on this second move, you can still read the full story for yourself before you decide. It's all in the FREE copy of Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead! that I want to send.

All I need is your permission to put it in the mail... or you can download it yourself, five minutes from now, from a link I'll give you at the end of this letter.

But before I show you how...

Allow Me to Come Clean: Why I'm in Love...With Gold

My name is Addison Wiggin.

I'm sure you've guessed, gold is more than a "fad" investing idea for me.

I've followed these market forces behind the yellow metal for years. I've even written about it, in a New York Times best seller that maybe you've read, called Financial Reckoning Day.

I wrote about these forces again in a second New York Times best-seller, Empire of Debt. And again in a quick little book, also a best-seller, called The Demise of the Dollar.

This is not, in short, new territory for me.

I've hit the radio circuit to talk about this too, appearing on over 350 local and national interview shows. Maybe you've also seen me talking it up on television, from ABC News and Forbes on Fox to Bloomberg Television.

I've even just put the wraps on a new feature-length documentary called I.O.U.S.A. — with a team from Hollywood — to get this message out to the public. It debuted at Sundance just recently. And should be in theaters very soon.

And at least part of that documentary should give viewers all the reasons I'm giving you here, about why a major move into gold will be essential for growing and safeguarding your wealth over the years ahead.

I don't say this to brag. I just want you to be clear, this isn't coming from out of the blue. In fact, I also head a multi-million dollar international research organization that's very much focused right now on exactly the same opportunities we've just talked about.

And really, that's why I'm writing to you today.

See, finding and assembling the world's best experts in this field is what I do. It's my life calling. I've been at this for the last 15 years. And in that time, nothing makes me more proud than what we've managed to do with one of those ventures, a powerful, major force in the resource advisory industry called Outstanding Investments.

Maybe you've heard of it...

Outstanding Investments was ranked by respected and impartial industry watchdog Mark Hulbert as the No. 1 performing advisory letter over a five-year period in 2005 and again in 2006. That's quite an honor. Here's a glimpse at how we did it...

 In 2002, our readers locked in 84% gains on Corner Bay... 96% gains on EOG Resources... 75% gains on American Water Works... 136% gains on R.J. Reynolds... and 137% gains on KeyWest Energy.... plus another 151% gain on Wheaton River Minerals... 162% gains on Intrepid Minerals... a solid 332% gain on Glamis/Francisco Gold... and 668% gains on Metallica Resources

 In 2003, our readers socked away another 88% gains on Northgate Exploration... plus 105% gains on Gentry Resources... 151% gains on Tocqueville Gold... 235% gains on Niko Resources... and 249% gains on Coeur d'Alene Mines... just to name a few

 In 2004, Outstanding Investments readers closed out PetroChina with a solid 174% gain... plus another 55% on Atacama Minerals... 116% gains on Cameco... 24% gains on the Canadian Oil Sands Trust... 32% gains on Southwest Water... and 270% gains on the July 2005 silver calls... plus a slew of small and fast winners

 In 2005, we took in another 43%, 44% and 45% gains on Harmony Gold, Schlumberger and PetroKazakhstan Inc. and posted 50% gains on CONSOL Energy just a few weeks later. We hit with a fat 55% gain on both Suez SA and Petro-Canada... and 73% gains on Wheaton River Minerals and Anadarko Petroleum Corp., plus 85% on Precision Drilling... 86% on Kerr-McGee... 88% on the INVESCO Energy Fund... 101% gains on the ICON Energy Fund...107% gains on Norsk Hydro... 108% gains on Anglo American PLC... 160% gains on Western Oil Sands.... and an impressive 179% gain on Talisman Energy

 In 2006 and 2007, we hauled in another 83% on Placer Dome... 147% gains on BG Group PLC... 78% gains on OMM... 87% returns on Walter Industries... and a hefty 177% on Coeur d'Alene fact, in 2007 alone, we averaged 79% gains across the board and scored a cumulative gain of 317%.

 And so far in 2008, we're already up 255% on Foundation Coal Holdings... 165% on Goldcorp... 164% on Newmont Mining... 369% on EnCana Corp... 358% on Velero... 509% on American Century Global Gold... 1,011% on Suncor Energy... just to name a few.

I'd like to send you a FREE report so you can see what I'm recommending you do right now. Read on for more details... then click the button at the end of this letter to send for your FREE report.

Like I said, I couldn't be more proud...

Mark Hulbert, the no-nonsense industry watchdog, recently ranked Outstanding Investments as the No.1 performing investment advisory letter over a five-year period in 2005. In 2006, he put us among his top-ranked performers yet again.

And it's no wonder. Especially with the winners you could have found in the Outstanding Investments over these last several years...

Like the 332% we logged on Glamis/Francisco Gold... 668% gains on Metallica Resources... 249% gains on Coeur d'Alene Mines... 83% gains on Placer Dome... 156% already on Newmont... and 540% gains already on American Century Global Gold...

Plus plenty of non-gold gains, too.

Like 137% on KeyWest Energy... 174% on PetroChina... 270% gains on the July 2005 silver call options... 160% gains on Western Oil Sands... and 179% gains on Talisman Energy...

One of the biggest reasons for our success is the string of brilliant analysts we've been able to entice on board to lead Outstanding Investments readers to that top-performance position.

Maybe you've already heard of our current top analyst, Byron King.

When it comes to gold and other metals, oil, gas, energy — even the politics and trends that move resource markets — there's a good chance nobody is as qualified as Byron.

See, unlike most market analysts, Byron actually has in-the-field experience.

He's even what you might call a "rock-hound."

Byron's a geologist with a degree from Harvard.

After graduating with honors in the 1970s, he broke into the oil industry. Byron worked as a geologist in the exploration and production division of a major oil company — one of the Fortune Top 20.

When he got tired of that, he did what no other analyst would do — and joined the U.S. Navy, logging over 1,000 hours flying navy bombers as a tailhook aviator... including more than 127 death-defying carrier landings.

(Ask your broker if he has that on his resume!)

Not one to sit still, after leaving the Navy, Byron worked as a practicing attorney in Pennsylvania for 17 years, during which time he became one of the most sought-after resource experts in the country.

He's been invited to give speeches across the U.S. and Canada, he's written countless articles for major publications, and he's been interviewed by even more, from small town journals to national newspapers like The Globe & Mail and the Los Angeles Times.

Byron once even met with M. King Hubbert himself, the genius who discovered the "Peak Oil" crisis that would plague world petroleum... 20 years before it actually happened. Again, that's not a claim your average energy market analyst can make.

You couldn't ask for a better pedigree.

What's Byron saying right now?

Byron and I are both pretty excited about the future of most commodities. But we're very excited, right now, by the future of gold.

In your FREE copy of Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead, you can see what Byron and his Outstanding Investments team are recommending right now to readers.

Just give me permission to send you a copy.

And then, I'll ask you to do something for me. With your permission, I'll ask you to let me also start sending you — at no risk to you — up to a full year of FREE issues of Outstanding Investments too.

Inside those issues, you'll read about all kinds of ways to make money — not just on gold, but surging new alternative energy investments, oil and gas, corn, sugar, and soybeans, and the China-driven resource boom... plus plenty more.

All FREE for up to a full year. You can find all the details at the end of this letter. The thing is, however, Byron and his readers are already moving on these opportunities I'm telling you about. So time is of the essence.

Let me at least rush you a FREE copy of this groundbreaking report, Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead!... so you can look over these simple recommendations and see for yourself.

All five picks are geared for 2008 and beyond. And you'll find all the information you need on each of them packed into the report. Which is, as I've said, yours free just as soon as you tell me you're ready. Just follow the steps at the end of this letter.

But don't wait too long.

If only because the pressure behind gold prices just keeps increasing by the hour. For instance, take a look at this...

Precious Metals Megatrend: China's Secret Endgame

Fan Gang, director of China's National Economic Research Institute, stood in front of a standing-room-only crowd at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

In tortured English, he said...

The U.S. dollar is no longer, in our opinion, is no longer a stable currency. It is devaluating all the time, and that's [making] troubles all the time. So the real issue is how to change the regime from a U.S. dollar pegging to a more manageable reference, say, euros, yen... those kinds of more diversified systems...

And it's not just China. Malaysia is also shifting from the dollar. So is Indonesia. And Thailand. And possibly Japan. But who could blame them?

China and Japan alone own about $906 billion of the $1.1 trillion of U.S. Treasuries held overseas.

But a weak dollar is a wasting asset. To the Chinese, it's starting to look like a giant pile of liabilities. Yu Yongding, who sits on the Chinese central bank monetary policy committee, told the China Securities Journal he was worried America would drop interest rates in 2006, putting pressure on the dollar and the yuan.

"More seriously," he said, "China's economy would take a big hit if the U.S. dollar weakened sharply due to such factors as a bursting of the U.S. property bubble. The loss for China's foreign exchange reserves would be extremely serious."

They won't hang on for long.

Publicly, the talk is of China moving more of its currency reserves away from the dollar and to the euro. And that might happen. But the euro is only paper too, backed by its own debt problems at home.

The real story is China quietly converting those dollars into... you guessed it... GOLD.

China just recently cashed in about 2.4% of its dollar reserves to buy gold. It has a better track record than the dollar. In fact, gold has a better track record - historically - than any paper currency.

On Dec. 28, 2005 - the same day as the first in a series of recent U.S. yield-curve inversions that we just talked about, an economist at China's biggest brokerage firm, China Galaxy Securities, quietly hinted China's central bank should quadruple its gold reserves in the very near future.

Japan's central bank has also talked about cranking up its gold reserves. So have the central banks of South Africa, Argentina and Russia. In November 2005, Russia said it would hike up its gold reserves from 5% of total financial reserves to 10%.

That's double what it's already holding now.

To get it, Russia would have to absorb its own entire gold output for the next three years. That's a long time for the rest of the world to go without Russian gold production.

Any more whispers on the news about this or the China gold reserve hike could send gold prices skyrocketing overnight. You'll want to be ready to profit on this surge as soon as you can.

Here's another way most other investors will miss...

Epic Boom Opportunity #3: The "Blue Chip" Gold Mining Share Nobody's Talking About

When gold takes off, major "blue chip" gold producers like Newmont, Barrick, and AngloGold grab lots of headlines. But there's another of the top 10 producers that's not getting nearly as much attention — yet.

Now is your chance to grab it before soaring gold prices push it higher.

This company owns one of the five largest inventories of gold deposits. Plus it owns nine operating mines in five different countries, including the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Chile, and even Russia.

But here's where it has its biggest "undiscovered" edge.

This major miner has three very promising projects in development that could easily up its output to levels 60% above where they are right now. That's a lot of new gold. And coming on line over the next two years.

What's more, this company does it all with an extremely tight rein on costs, with profit margins running an impressive 18%.

And by the way, this company is also one of a few beneficiaries of a 131-year old federal law that literally gives it the U.S. land it mines and all the deposits underneath for only $10 per acre.

That's given this company more mineral-rich land holdings than 99.5% of their competitors. At the same time, this company trades for $174 of market capitalization per ounce of gold reserves, which is one of the lowest premiums among major mining companies.

Call it "cheap gold."

Especially considering what you would have to pay for those other major gold stocks for 2010 I mentioned.

It's no wonder this one company recently attracted some of the top talent from every corner of the industry. It's also no wonder that more than 57% of this company's shares are in the clutches of institutional investors.

And that trend is only going to speed up, given the top-quality deals and acquisitions this company has already cooked up, which should send its total gold production soaring even faster over the next three years.

You can read all about this "undiscovered" mining major, along with all the other opportunities we've already talked about, in your free copy of Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead!

Here's something else you'll find inside...

Epic Boom Opportunity #4: THE SAFEST WAY TO OWN GOLD

What's the safest way to own gold today?

It has to be the new gold-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

These did not exist two decades ago, the first time legal gold investing in the United States set the markets on fire. And now they've completely revolutionized the market for gold, in more ways than one.

The way they work, you buy shares. Just like you would in a mutual fund. Each share is as good as holding a title to real gold. When you put money in, the gold ETF buys physical metal and stores it, to back your shares.

As if you had the gold itself in your own safety deposit box. Only the ETF saves you the trouble of ever storing, transporting or insuring the metal.

I recommended my Outstanding Investments readers get in the more liquid of the two main gold ETFs on the market. And I've got some recommendations to share with you on how to get started on this yourself, in your FREE copy of Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead!

But here's something you might not know about ETFs.

By cracking open the gold market to more marginal metal investors, all the fundamentals of gold investing have changed forever.

Suddenly, pension funds, young investors and retirees who want to dabble in metals can do so. More easily than they ever could before. But all these millions of dollars in new electronic gold transactions have to be backed — by law — with real gold.

So the success of the gold ETF is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The more investors it attracts, the more gold it buys. That cranks up pressure on the rest of the gold market. And gold prices tick higher, making the ETF look even more attractive all over again.

Take the ETF we have in our Outstanding Investments portfolio.

It first came out in October 2004, with a float of about $200 million worth of gold holdings in its portfolio. In the first year, the total float ballooned to $1 billion worth of bullion.

Now it's over $9.94 billion!

That's $9.94 billion worth of physical gold that has to come off the market, just to back the fund's investors. The bigger that fund gets, the higher the gold price rises. And around we go.

If you don't own a chunk of this ETF, now would be a good time to get in.

Meanwhile, we're tracking another gold fund right now — not an ETF — that you should also own. Since it was first added to our Outstanding Investments portfolio, it's already up 509%. But you can still get in now and watch it go still higher. This select fund has averaged 77% gains over the last seven years. In one recent year, it soared 81.2% in less than 12 months.

Buying it now may be the simplest and safest way for you to take up positions in all the biggest gold shares — like Newmont, Barrick and Placer Dome — without paying commissions on all those separate trades.

Plus, this particular fund also takes a stake in physical gold. So this is a way for you to safely take a position in bullion too.

Read all about it in upcoming issues of Outstanding Investments. But be sure first to send for your FREE copy of the report, Bullion and Beyond: Five Stunning Ways to Get Richer on the Epic Metals Boom Ahead!

But first, here's something else most investors don't know about...

Precious Metals Megatrend: The Hidden Cost of Terror

The Milken Institute did a study that estimated the short- and long-term costs of Sept. 11.

Outside of the loss of human life, the immediate hit was about $53 billion. In the weeks that followed, another $47 billion disappeared thanks to lost economic output in the U.S. economy. Plus another $1.7 trillion that disappeared from the U.S. stock market of 2010.

Then the costs REALLY started to add up...

Airlines and aerospace, tourism and travel, hotels and motels, restaurants, the Postal Service and the insurance industry all suffered. Just in the first month, at least 125,000 people lost their jobs. Another 1.6 million jobs evaporated over the next year. And businesses retooling for the new "terror economy" had to spend an extra $151 billion.

This is where what's called the cost of distortion comes into play - the ripple effect from a shock event like this can cause people to behave in strange ways for a long time to come.

Think about it.

Governments wasting billions they otherwise couldn't have, because every new security bill gets passed. Nations fighting battles they otherwise wouldn't have, because every conflict suddenly looks connected to the war on terror. Individuals and businesses not spending money in ways they otherwise would have, because they're afraid to take the risk.

Air travel falls. Tourism falls. Trade suffers and foreign investment dries up. In 2002, 29 ports on the U.S. West Coast shut down for two weeks. Two hundred ships, carrying over 300,000 shipment containers, just sat in the water.


Railcars and warehouses all over the country waited too. Along with freezers and grain elevators and companies who had to shut down their production lines. More jobs disappeared. And the added insurance costs against security shutdowns tacked on another $30 billion to the cost of doing business in America.

You might remember pundits having plenty to say about how we recovered so quickly from the attacks. Yet new estimates put the uncovered costs, so far... at close to $2 trillion!

And remember, this is only one event we're talking about.

You and your family pay roughly $450 extra every year in taxes to cover the cost of a bloated Homeland Security agency. The same agency, by the way, whose air marshals have been caught sleeping on planes... and who hold up flights with huge security lines... and whose airport inspectors still let weapons and even dummy explosives slip through security.

You can never know how much a "war on terror" will cost.

Because fighting terrorism is like fighting a hurricane. You can see it forming on the radar screen. You know when it's headed your way. But you don't know what to expect when it lands. Or how much it will cost you over time.

Every enhanced cockpit door on a plane costs $30,000 to 50,000. Screening every bag carried by airline passengers will cost taxpayers an extra $4.7 billion just for this year.

Ten million dollars to teach bus drivers how to deal with terrorist passengers. Twenty-two million dollars to teach terrorism safety techniques to truck drivers...

Two and a half billion dollars for highway security. Seventy million dollars for a student Homeland Security fellowship program. Twenty million dollars to renovate Homeland Security headquarters.

As I said, it all starts to add up. Along with the undetermined future costs of Iraq... Afghanistan... and now maybe Iran... over the next decade, could set us back as much as $5.7 trillion!

Nobody knows for sure.

But the true hidden cost is the risk premium this creates for the foreign investors who lend us money for all this extra spending. This is how instability destroys faith in the dollar.

It's also why, in unstable times, the value of hard assets like gold, oil, and other real resources are even more likely to take off. Here's one more way for you to get rich on that reality...


Which gold stock would you buy if you only wanted to own one? Well, so far our Outstanding Investments readers have already seen 163% gains on Newmont Mining so far.

They've seen another 249% gain on Coeur d'Alene Mines... 332% gains on Glamis Gold... and 668% gains on Metallica Resources. Just to name a few. But these opportunities have already sailed by.

Your best bet is the gold company I'll tell you about right now. It's not small. In fact, it's one of the mega-producers I'm sure you already know by name.

What you might not know is this one gold producer will land leagues beyond competitors for 2008 and beyond...

Turn Every $1000 Into $30,000

See, just a couple years ago, this company was on its back. Mines were dying. Gold production had collapsed.

Then this company did something.

With just a little under $600,000 invested in a whole new wave of gold exploration technology... they took the entire mining industry into the innovation age.

Applying new discoveries in applied math, advanced physics, and computer graphics... to the age old business of digging holes in the earth and calling them mines... it got its payoff.

Within months, this company discovered 110 new pockets of undiscovered gold on property their own geologists has once given up for dead.

A shocking 80% of those new deposits turned out to be jammed with gold. Enough to crank out over $3 billion in new discoveries over the years that followed.

Once again, you can do the math. Any way you slice it, turning a half-million dollars in R&D costs into over $3 billion is stunning. But that wasn't all of it.

The shares in the company also took off.

Every $1,000 invested in this company's stock soared, over that same period, to a stunning $30,000. That's impressive. But here's why this one innovative little mining company is just beginning to hit its stride...

Ten Steps Ahead of Every Other Gold Producer

There's already the usual stuff going for this company that you'd imagine for any world class mining share. For instance, it has no company debt. Zilch. It also has $300 million in cash sitting in its bank accounts.

But it's this company's surprising move to "new tech" mining innovation that's really given it the edge. And, quietly, put it ahead of just about all of its mining competitors.

Take what it costs this company to get the gold out of the ground ­ just half what major mining companies like Newmont, Anglogold, Barrick, and Harmony pay for the same product.

Meanwhile, this company is also producing gold faster than its competitors too. More than 10 times faster than Newmont... triple the production rate of Newcrest... and better than five times the rate of Anglogold or Gold Fields.

In short, this one company crushes the nearest competitor.

Which makes it a perfect share for you to own as gold soars over the 12—24 months ahead. Political risk for this company is minimal. And all their gold is what you call "unhedged" — which basically means they'll start reaping even greater rewards as gold values go up.

And did I mention? The best stock to buy also pays a dividend.

Annually, 18 cents per share. And the company promises to hike up that rate even higher as the gold price goes up. It's like getting paid to own one of the best and safest gold stocks for 2010 in the entire industry.

I Also Want You to Try Byron's Best Picks FREE For Up To a Full Year

I believe you are like me.

I believe you know, as I do, that while $1 million worth of dot-com stock certificates isn't worth much more than kindling these days...

Raw real resources like copper... cotton... platinum... silver... natural gas... steel... oil... coal... and especially gold hold real and tangible value for civilization.

And that's what Outstanding Investments is all about.

While some stock investments can crash and fall to zero... we cannot exist or do business more than a few weeks, a few days or even in some cases a few hours... without the commodities that matter...

Oil to burn... land to stand on... copper pipes and wires in our walls... circuitry in our computers... electricity to power our lights, our appliances, the Internet... lumber, steel and grain... and precious metals like gold and silver to help us protect our wealth.

We've always stood for making a fortune in rich resource plays, even when it wasn't popular. But over time, the strategy has consistently paid off...

With a 151% gain on Wheaton River Minerals... 162% gains on Intrepid Minerals... a solid 332% gain on Glamis/Francisco Gold... and 668% gains on Metallica Resources, all in 2002...

Plus another plus 105% gain on Gentry Resources... 151% gains on Tocqueville Gold... 235% gains on Niko Resources... and 249% gains on Coeur d'Alene Mines, all in 2003...

116% gains on Cameco... 174% gains on PetroChina... and 270% gains on the July silver calls, all in 2004...

In 2005, 107% gains on Norsk Hydro... 108% gains on Anglo American PLC... 160% gains on Western Oil Sands.... and an impressive 179% gain on Talisman Energy...

And in 2006 and 2007, we locked in 83% on Placer Dome... 147% gains on BG Group PLC... 78% gains on OMM... 87% returns on Walter Industries... and a solid 177% on Coeur d'Alene fact, in 2007 alone, we averaged 79% gains across the board and scored a cumulative gain of 317%.

And so far in 2008, we're already up 255% on Foundation Coal Holdings... 165% on Goldcorp... 164% on Newmont Mining... 369% on EnCana Corp... 358% on Valero... 509% on American Century Global Gold... 1,011% on Suncor Energy... just to name a few.

What I'd like to ask you to do — in return for giving you all five FREE picks in the Outstanding Investments "Bullion and Beyond" Library... plus all the other gifts we've talked about... is simply agree to give the award-winning Outstanding Investments monthly advisory letter itself a try.

Like I said, right now you can have this trial subscription FREE for up to a full year. FREE. I'll show you month to month what Byron's watching, what he's recommending and what to do next with the holdings we'll track in each issue in our highly ranked, resource-focused Outstanding Investments portfolio.

FREE, you'll find out how to shore up your wealth safely with bullion investments. And FREE, Byron will also walk you through even better and easier ways to get in on the same mega-trends.

You'll get to keep all this at no charge. Along with everything else I'll send. No questions asked. But in order to make this possible, there's only one small thing more I'll need you to do for me.

(Yes, there's a catch. But it's one I'm confident you'll like very much.)

See, it's not free — on my end — to send out these newsletters. Or to put together, print, and mail out the library of five special investing picks I'll be giving you at no cost to you.

So, just to be sure you're as committed to these ideas as I am... here's what we're going to do. I'm making this possible by simply slashing the subscription rate I'll offer you by half.

So, let's say you sign on for a year's worth of Outstanding Investments. It's like getting six full months of issues, FREE. Gratis.

What you pay to sign on need only cover the second half — by which time, you'll have had six FREE issues, all the FREE picks, and the rest of my gifts to you, to make money and to decide if this is for you.

Doesn't that sound fair?

And then, if you decide right away to sign on for two full years of issues, the same kind of deal applies — you get the whole first half of your subscription, or 12 full issues, FREE. You're getting a two-year membership, but at only the one year price.

What's that price?

Normally, others would pay $99 to get 12 months of issues. You'll pay only $49 — half price — which means you're getting six of your 12 issues absolutely FREE.

To get 24 months of issues — two years of Outstanding Investments — others would normally pay $198. You'll pay only $89 — actually LESS than half price — which means you'll get 12 of your 24 issues absolutely FREE.

I can't think of a better deal. Or a better way for you to get plugged in fast to all the opportunities both Byron and I see playing out over the coming year and well into 2009.

But there's still more...

My Revolutionary "'Double-the-Value' Guarantee"

At the very start of this letter, I told you I would make you a guarantee that gold would soar at least 100% above today's price levels, or you pay nothing. Let me be more precise.

Gold prices, obviously, change every day.

When I first made Outstanding Investments' "gold at $2000" prediction public, it would have had to soar 257% to hit that mark.

Now that margin is narrowing.

As of this writing, it's now only a 100% move. That would mean double the value of an ounce of gold today. And that, you might say, is still a big jump. But I'm so sure the Outstanding Investments call is right on the money, I'm willing to back it myself, with my own reputation on the line.

That is, if gold doesn't close that 100% gap by the time your Outstanding Investments subscription — both the trial and paid parts — is finished, then I'll eat my words. Your entire sign up costs are on me. I'll refund every penny, if you feel that's what's due.

All I ask is you read the issues... study the picks... visit the website and dig into the archives and extra materials... and then decide for yourself what Outstanding Investments can do.

In fact, if you decide to cancel for any reason, even up to the very last day of your very last issue... you just let me know and I'll still give you a full refund. Even if gold has crossed the milestone mark Byron and I say it will.


Because I know already it's no accident Outstanding Investments wins awards. And it's no accident Hulbert ranked it the No. 1 performing advisory letter of the last five years in 2005 and again in 2006, either. We're onto something. And I'm confident, after you give Outstanding Investments an honest try, you'll think so too.

You won't want to cancel, at the end of the subscription period. In fact, I'm confident you'll beg to renew. Because you'll have the chance to make too much money on these opportunities not to.

Sign up, read and profit, share what you find with your family.

Then wait. Watch the gold cycle. Watch the other rich resource opportunities we'll talk about in upcoming issues. And then you decide what you'd like to do.

You risk nothing by giving this a try. Your only risk is sitting on the sidelines. Even if you don't decide to stay on, everything we send is yours to keep. This is entirely up to you.

I hope that sounds fair.

More importantly, I hope this sounds like something you're ready to do. Byron's other readers are already locking into these soaring trends for the long term. I hope you'll decide to act on them sooner rather than later, too.

Trillions Phantom Economy Finally Ignites

I was shocked. And if you've read my irreverent commentaries on the madness of today's markets in the popular e-zine The Daily Reckoning, you'll know it takes a lot to do that.

I've known, and worked with (and even published) hundreds of financial analysts and economists over the past few decades. And I've been fortunate (mostly anyway) to be privy to a lot of diverse, unconventional and original financial ideas, radical predictions, and unusual investment styles in that time.

But recently one unique and private group of like-minded libertarian global investors has surprised me.

I've been reading financial reports from them for a number of years. And though I was impressed by their prestigious and extensive advisory team who were collected from all corners of the financial globe, and boasted everyone from Swiss bankers to asset protection masters, currency traders to commodity experts, I ignored their direst financial warning…

There was one special report that was originally sent out over four years ago that was truly remarkable. And there is certified evidence by the U.S. Post Office that this report was mailed to investors and influential decision makers in the U.S. and overseas.

You can bet it made its way to the corridors of financial and political powers in Washington and New York. Yet its message and urgent warnings were derided as "fear mongering" by people like the Fed Chief at the time.

Yet this report…published long before the word "derivatives" ever hit the front page… predicted with uncanny accuracy the global financial meltdown stemming from the untamable and unregulated growth of the now $592 trillion global derivatives market—a shadow market they called "the Phantom Economy."

This report warned of hidden financial time bombs, which were lying in America's banks, and which they believed could detonate at any time…setting off a devastating chain of events that would end up causing the greatest financial meltdown since the Great Depression.

The world now knows these financial time bombs as derivatives. And this rare group of global investors (call them financial shamans or money mystics if you like) were indeed right. For their apocalyptic prediction is of course what we are now bearing witness to on Wall Street and global markets today.

Just below is an updated copy of the original report. It's to warn you of the next great shocks that are about to rock the markets…and show you how to shield your wealth and turn disaster into opportunity in the continued fallout. 

You might have been one of those investors who received the original report, and maybe you'll recognize it. For they have been sending updated versions of this ominous market warning over the past four years. In fact, even well after this summer when many of Wall Street's so-called "best and brightest" money managers were telling investors that the worst was over, this group was warning that on the contrary - the worst was yet to come.

They couldn't have been more terrifyingly right.

As I watched in disbelief at the unprecedented chain of devastating financial events that unfolded weekly, sometimes even daily, in these past months, I remembered that contrarian global investment group. I remembered their warnings. While the world sat in shock and awe, unable to believe what was unfolding on Wall Street, watching their retirement portfolios go up in smoke, along with their credit and faith in the American economy, this group were not even surprised.

On the contrary, they were very well prepared for these financial shocks…and they've watched their investment recommendations fly in the face of falling markets everywhere. Their contrarian global approach, their trust in alternative assets, and in investments that lie far off the Wall Street radar, have rewarded them greatly.

And now investors have started to huddle at the gate of this private investment group. As one reader, John Shook, wrote:

"I used to subscribe to this service several years ago. I also used to get emails…that always warned of bank failures and the derivatives issue that would cause this. I cancelled my subscription back then because it seemed like too much boogie man stuff…well apparently it was all true. I am now watching my brokerage account dwindle away each day feeling very stupid and powerless… I should have listened back then and got my money the hell out a few years ago.  Im afraid most of my financial advice comes from my advisor who just wants me to leave it with him and ride this out forever….if u can send me a link to some sound advice Id appreciate it…" – John Shook, Arlington, VA

Your Invitation to Join One of the World's Most Contrarian (and Effective) Investment Groups

Below is the latest issue of their private investment letter, which is a special edition on the global financial crisis…including their latest predictions for where they see it going next. They urge you (as do I) NOT to listen to the Wall Street and Washington rhetoric…that no matter what kind of false sense of financial security they might be pedaling, the crisis is far from over.

But they also reveal a number of alternative investments that are poised to fly when almost everything else comes crashing to the ground…including one of the most depressed investments of the last generation, which they believe will return 2 to 10 times your money in the volatile years to come. Have a read of this contrarian group's advice, and if you find yourself nodding in agreement, then why not try a no-risk introductory membership to this organization? It might change the way you invest forever, as it's evidently done for thousands of others!

It is estimated that over 700 banks (with trillions of dollars in assets) will come crashing to the ground.  Hundreds of hedge funds will collapse, along with a number of major private equity firms. Corporate bankruptcies will soar. And another $20 Trillion will be wiped off Global stock markets of 2010. And no amount of Fat-Chance Packages or Bailout Band-aids from the Fed will help this time.

But this one bombed-out investment (that's been trading at depression level prices for 18 years now) could soar two to ten fold as the world comes undone.

The nightmare scenario has begun.

We've been warning people about it for over 4 years now. And while the powers at be would love you to think that they've got everything under control, you'll soon see that once the next wave of the global derivatives disaster hits, no amount of Fed fiddling will be able to contain the crisis this time.

While we originally warned that JP Morgan might be ground zero for the global derivatives disaster, Jamie Dimon (who's been called the world's greatest banker) was soon employed to unwind their giant derivatives portfolio and reduce their exposure and risk.

Although he managed to do this with some success, other players took up the slack and the derivatives bubble continued to grow unchecked and unregulated.

We later sent out warnings of a new demon derivative that had begun to proliferate like wildfire…which threatened to take down banks like Wachovia, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Deustche Bank, and hundreds of other hedge funds and financial institutions.

Bill Gross, the legendary bond investor, called this particular type of derivative one of the banks' most "egregious concoctions" to date! It's the now infamous investment, which goes by the name of the Subprime CDO (Collateralized Debt Obligation). The investment derives its value from the subprime mortgage markets.

These investments were basically bets on whether or not the average American homeowner with a poor credit rating could make his monthly mortgage payment on his inflated home.

For bankers and mortgage brokers, loan applicants who previously would have been considered bad risks suddenly became great clients. That's because the higher risk these borrowers represented, meant ultimately the lender could charge higher rates and fees…and then quickly sell the loan off to unsuspecting institutions.

And in a world of low interest rates, low inflation and easy credit they were a gloriously effortless way for banks and hedge funds to reach for yield. The risk was low and the reward high…at least until everything started to go wrong…and these miracle bets began to rapidly unwind…

Pop Goes the Largest Leveraged Asset and Credit Bubble in History 

You see, as we mentioned before, these derivative bets are bought on an enormous amount of leverage.

For example, any wealthy individual can go to a broker these days and put down $1 million, and then leverage this amount 3 times. The resulting $4 million ($1 million equity, $3 million debt) can be invested in a fund of funds that will in turn leverage this $4 million another 3 or 4 times and invest them in a hedge fund; then the hedge fund will take these funds and leverage them another 3 or 4 times and buy derivatives like subprime CDOs, which are often themselves leveraged 9 or 10 times!

At the end of this long credit chain, the initial $1 million of equity can become a $100 million investment, out of which $99 million is debt (leverage) and only $1 million is equity. So we get an overall leverage ratio of 100 to 1.

It was this kind of new Super-Leverage which helped create the largest asset and credit bubbles in the history of humanity, including a global real estate bubble, a mortgage bubble, a bond bubble, a credit bubble, a commodity bubble, a private equity bubble, a hedge fund bubble and the mother of all economic bubbles: the global derivatives bubble.

It's how global stock markets grew from $25 trillion to $50 trillion in just 5 years, and how the global derivatives market leapt from $100 trillion to almost $600 trillion. In economic terms, these bubbles grew in the blink of an eye.

And now they've all begun to bust at the same time—plunging us into the deepest de-leveraging since the Great Depression.

You see, when you have this kind of monstrous amount of leverage built into the system, a mere 1% fall in the price of the final investment (the CDO) can wipe out the initial equity, and create a chain of margin calls.

And here's where the real problem lies: The one we've been warning investors about for over four years now…the one at the very core of the credit crisis. 

The amount all these traders have to put down in order to place their derivative bets is based upon their credit rating. The stronger their credit rating, the less they have to put down.

Now if their credit rating is downgraded, they have to put up more money to cover the bet. In order to do that, the bank, hedge fund, money market fund, private equity fund, etc. must sell its investments. Problem is, it's unable to sell many of its investments (like CDOs) - because nobody wants them, so it has to sell its good investments (like its top stocks for 2010). And naturally when things sell, prices drop, which causes further selling, and further downgrades and so on…

And that's what we are seeing in global markets right now. It's why top stocks investments and markets that seem far removed from the subprime mortgage meltdown are being affected by it.

But the worst is yet to come.

The Catalog of Crises

It's not only that we have a financial crisis, we also have a banking crisis, a credit crisis, a food crisis, an energy crisis and a commodity crisis.

We've already seen $10 trillion wiped off global stock exchanges in just a month. And that was after trillions of dollars had been injected into the system from central banks the globe over…

And now the next demon derivative is about to whip down Wall Street and wipe a further $20 trillion off global exchanges, spinning the world into what might end up being a global deflationary collapse.

We'll tell you about this demon derivative in this Special Crisis and Opportunity Issue on the derivatives time bomb…and we'll show you how you can not only protect yourself from it, but multiply your wealth many times over by buying the small clutch of alternative investments, which are poised to leap 2-10 fold when the derivatives bubble finally blows. 

We'll tell you about the countries that leveraged the most, and those that leveraged the least, and we'll show little-known ways to make money off them all…more money than you may have ever made in your life.

We'll introduce you to radical new financial innovations that can give you access to exotic currencies, booming markets and opportunities that were once reserved only for the world's richest investors. We'll show you how to invest more like the world's best-performing university endowments, but for no more than it would cost you to purchase a best stock to buy or mutual fund on American markets.

But before we do, let me first tell you why no amount of fed fiddling, bailout band-aids or fat-chance packages will save the markets this time.

Wall Street's Next Demon Derivative Delivers Final Blow

You've heard of the subprime CDO (the derivative at the core of the current crisis). Now another kind of demon derivative is about to take the spotlight. It's called the CDS (Credit Default Swap). And you'll soon understand why, no matter what central banks do, it will deal the final blow to the global financial system. 

At its very simplest a CDS is an insurance contract. And it's made between two parties, one of whom is giving insurance to the other in hopes that he will be paid in the event that a financial institution or corporation, fails. However, Wall Street big-wigs have been very careful not to call this investment an insurance contract because if it were insurance, it would be regulated. So instead they use a magic substitute word called a 'swap,' which by virtue of federal law is deregulated.

And this is where we run into trouble. Because what was originally intended as insurance has now often become once again a highly leveraged speculative bet. Now in a typical CDS deal, a hedge fund will sell protection to a bank, which will then resell the same protection to another bank, and such dealing will continue, sometimes in a circle. And this practice has the potential to put investors into webs of relationships which are not transparent.

Since the U.S. Treasury has not classified these derivatives as "insurance," they trade free of any government regulations. Because of that, the firm selling the CDS is not required to set aside any reserves from the premiums received to insure against possible future loss claims.

This obviously makes the sale of the Credit Default Swaps potentially very profitable. But if the bet goes sour, and the company defaults or goes bankrupt, then that small bet can get very expensive.

So what was essentially supposed to be a safe insurance contract is now a series of highly leveraged dangerous bets. And in the past seven years trading in this market has leapt a mind-boggling hundred-fold.

This new CDS market now stands at a size larger than the entire capitalization of all the world's top stock markets of 2010 combined.  

And since these bets are all based on the future credit worthiness of a country, company or consumer (basically a bet on the ability of a party to repay his debts), they're all about to go horribly wrong.

In a global economy made up of thousands of corporations and institutions, many of which borrowed 10-100 times their capital in the past few years, most will be un able to repay their future debts – meaning these new demon derivates are going to unwind at a rapid rate…with fall-out so large it will dwarf the current damage caused by the crisis so far. 

Why Bailout Band-Aids Won't Save the System

Central banks around the globe have already injected trillions of dollars into the system. And while these bailout band-aids have helped, the problem is too big now. A band-aid might be good to cover a blemish or an abrasion, but we now have a gaping hole in the financial system: One that is growing larger every day.

Plus the government's ability to deal with a crisis of this magnitude is unfortunately limited. Over 700 banks are already in critical condition…150 of them (with a trillion dollars in assets alone) have Texas Ratios of 1:1. (A Texas ratio is a measure of the banks' credit troubles. And historically when banks have reached 1:1, they fail.)   

While the Fed does have the ability to bail out banks, how many more will they have to bail out before investors start to lose faith in the whole American financial system. But even if they were to take the unlikely action of bailing out every bank, it still wouldn't be enough.

They'd need to bail out the hundreds of non-banking institutions too, including all the hedge funds, money market funds and private equity funds that are also on the brink. And they'd need to bail out the thousands of crashing corporations and the millions of already bankrupt mortgage holders. That's what is needed to save the system…to prevent a tsunami of foreclosures, an implosion of the corporate sector, not to mention the coming torrent of defaults on credit cards, auto loans and student loans.

And the tragic reality is it can't be done. These kind of non-banking bailouts lie beyond the abilities of the Fed.

In fact, in another urgent investment bulletin we sent out to investors in the summer of 2007 entitled "Gluttons at the Gate" we warned about the coming bursting of the Private Equity bubble. Ten of the biggest Private Equity outfits (Ex-president's clubs, as we called them), were busily buying up hundreds of companies on extravagant amounts of leverage. And they weren't just buying up small firms, they were buying up some of America's most iconic brands, including: Hertz, Dunkin' Donuts, Baskin-Robbins, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Warner Music, Neiman Marcus, J Crew and Toys "R" Us.

They de-listed these companies from the public exchanges, stripped them down, cut their costs and their workforces, loaded them up with debt, charged them questionable fees and rushed them back to public markets at warp speed.

To quote industry insiders, they "bought them, stripped them and flipped them."

But the success of this buyout binge hinged on one very important factor: a booming economy.

You see Private Equity firms use the rising sales of the companies they acquire to pay back their enormous debt loads. But in a recession when sales tumble, they will be unable to make the crippling repayments. They will default. This is what we're starting to see happen. Since they bought up trillions of dollars worth of companies (a significant swath of the global economy) the impact will be enormous. Corporate bankruptcies will soar. Private Equity firms will be unable to launch them back onto public exchanges. They'll be stuck owning ailing assets. And many will get crushed under the burden of their huge debt loads.

Global Stock Market's Next $20 Trillion Culling

Corporate default rates were a mere 0.6% in 2006 and 2007. But in a typical U.S. recession these rates surge above 10%. In a severe recession they'll soar even higher. 

And once the tsunami of corporate bankruptcies start to flood the market, it is then that we will bear witness once again to the devastating power that these demon derivatives carry. For the intricate web of relationships, including all the banks, hedge funds, money market funds and investors that bought insurance on these faltering companies, will want to be paid. Problem is, many won't have the funds to pay up. They'll go bankrupt.

It's why AIG – the world's biggest insurance company— fell and had to be bailed out by the banks.

And it's why Lehman Brothers also went bankrupt. And even if the Fed had saved them it would've only slowed down the meltdown. It wouldn't have stopped it. Because this time, the bets have been too big, and they've burrowed too deep into the global financial system…

Nothing will be able to stop the coming catastrophic implosion of the Credit Default Swap market. Even if the Fed could inject funds into every hedge fund, money-market fund and corporation (which they can't), the sums would need to be so large that it would destroy the very fabric of the American financial system anyway. 

Once the CDS marker starts to implode, there will be a run on the banks…and a run on top stocks to buy for 2010. And expect the coming CDS—driven global stock market crash to dwarf the last crash, which saw $10 trillion wiped off global exchanges in a matter of weeks, as investors priced in a global recession. This time they'll be pricing in a severe recession and maybe a depression. Expect a further $20 trillion to get wiped off. And because of the lack of transparency in the CDS market, everyone will hoard cash, making the credit crunch even worse…leading to a complete systemic financial collapse. The curtain will have finally fallen on the Wall Street era.

In this time there will only be a few profitable money havens left: A small clutch of markets who were not built on phantom finance…whose stock, real-estate and bond markets were not pumped up on super-leverage and hot financial air…whose governments support massive surpluses NOT crippling deficits…and whose citizens rank among the world's greatest savers, not the world's greatest spenders. Some of these economies are also awash in natural resources, others are sitting on trillions of dollars in cash. Their banks are among the best capitalized in the world. They barely dipped their toes into the risky subprime CDO and CDS markets. They are thus far better equipped to weather the coming financial storm than most other bubble economies.

And thanks to The Sovereign Society, and their vast array of global contacts, you'll be able to access them more easily and cheaply than ever before, including:

"The One Investment that ALWAYS Flies When Almost Everything Else Falls!"

The world's biggest credit and asset bubbles ever created in the history of humanity are all starting to burst at the same time. So where do you go for safety and profits?

I'll tell you where: The one investment on Earth that didn't get pumped up on cheap credit and phantom finance…the one investment that didn't boom when almost everything else did…the one investment that went nowhere in the last 18 years, only enjoying brief booms when the rest of the world started falling apart – like in 1998 after the collapse of LTCM, 9/11, etc.

This investment thrives on chaos…flies when everything else falls…dances when everything else dies…

I'm talking about the Japanese yen. Ironically it was the yen (and the Bank of Japan) that was also the single biggest source of cheap money, which helped fuel the recent and unprecedented bull markets in top stocks to buy for 2010, real estate and commodities. But it didn't do it to inflate global asset bubbles. It did it in hopes of jump-starting its own depressed economy. So it offered investors the globe over the cheapest source of financing on the planet…loans at near 0% interest. It was basically FREE money. And so irresistible was it, that investors came from everywhere to dip their toes into the deep waters of this enchanted money pool. Everyone from Private Equity firms to hedge funds…from money market funds to Japanese housewives dived in.

These firms and investors borrowed up every cent they could – some estimates say the sums reached as high as $2 trillion.

Problem was, instead of plowing this money back into Japan's depressed market, as the authorities had hoped, the bet back-fired. Instead these investors took the cheap money and plowed it into greener financial pastures, which largely was anything that could offer them a bigger yield than 1%. They piled into New Zealand and Australian dollar currency CDs, Chinese, Brazilian, Russian and Indian stocks for 2010, emerging market bonds, Eastern European banks, oil, gas, copper, corn, Google, global real estate, DOW stocks and a whole lot more.

And why not? If you can borrow money at near 0% interest, then deposit it elsewhere and reap 3, 10 even 20% annual returns, it's a license to print money. And for a long time it was.

The market has a name for this kind of fairy-tale bet.

It's called a carry trade.

Problem is this carry trade is coming to a tragic end.

Make 2-10 Times Your Money as the World's Biggest Bet Unwinds

You see in order for the Japanese yen carry trade to continue, it depends on one very important factor.

Japan and the yen have to stay depressed.

Japan in effect has to sacrifice itself in order to save everyone else. For if its market and currency start to take off, so too could its interest rates, which would be catastrophic for the thousands of betters who borrowed these cheap Japanese yen loans. Their loan payments would quickly soar.

All those who become unable to make their higher monthly payments would have to start to cash out of the investments they bought with the loan. Many would start to panic too, in fear that their interest rate would continue to climb and the yen would continue to strengthen, making their payments increasingly harder to make.

This would lead to a massive global sell-off of all these high-yielding bubble assets, and money would flood back to Japan, which would in turn enforce the trend even more. And the cycle would feed on itself.

The world's biggest bet would rapidly unwind, deflating asset bubbles the globe over, but it would also finally turn one of the world's worst-performing investments (the long-depressed Japanese yen) into one of the world's best.

And that's what we're seeing happening in global markets right now. But it's only just beginning. When the Credit Default Swaps market implodes, it will spin the world into deeper chaos, and more and more money will flood back to Japan, setting off a yen currency rally like the world has never known. 

The yen is the ultimate crisis-proof investment.

And we'll show you the best ways to play it, including revolutionary new financial instruments that can allow you to invest in the yen currency just as easy and as cheaply as you would a DOW stock. Plus we'll show you little-known ways to magnify the returns on this currency play 10, 20 - even 30 times. That means every 10% that the yen appreciates against other major currencies, you could make up to 300%.  

You'll learn all about it in a special investment alert we'll send you absolutely FREE when you sign up for a risk-free trial membership to The Sovereign Society. It's called The Great Unwind: How to Make 100-1000% on the Collapse of the Carry Trade.

And that's just one of the many extraordinary benefits you'll receive as a member of The Sovereign Society.

Easy Profits on the "Recession Currency" When the DOW Goes Down, the YEN Goes Up

(You see, whenever the DOW takes a hit, the yen rallies. Few investors know this: but the yen has been an almost fail-proof hedge against sputtering best stock markets. This isn't some random coincidence. In truth, Japan is the "black market" of credit that funds the DOW - to a very large degree. And when that credit becomes more expensive, the world's biggest investors have no choice— they MUST sell off assets and repay their loans. This cycle feeds on itself: As yen loans are repaid, the value of the yen rises— pushing other debtors' interest rates higher. And as more and more debtors sell off investments to repay their ballooning loans— a massive deflationary effect spreads across the world.  Cash becomes scarcer... Nearly everything is worth less. Except the Japanese yen. It flies! 

The Harder the Crash the Bigger Your Yen Currency Gains Will Be

In the last 21 years, three major market crashes were coupled with huge rises in the yen's value.

The One Investment that May Even Trump Japan's Juggernaut

In times of crisis, people grasp for tangible investments, things like gold and silver, and other essential commodities that the global economy simply can't do without.

In the last commodities bull market, gold went up a staggering 23-fold. That was through the inflationary '70s – one of the worst periods for U.S. stocks in economic history. In times of uncertainty, investors rush to gold. And in the oil-credit-confidence and commodity-shocked-times ahead, gold will shoot to the stars.

This won't be like the gold bull market in the '70s. It will be much bigger. For we now have a lot of new players on the global stage. And as energy shocks, commodity crunches and derivatives disasters continue to rock global markets, these new players will get very hungry for the immortal metal. The 2.3 billion Chinese and Indians have already begun to show their voracious appetite for the metal. But this is only the beginning. When gold lust spreads from the contrarians to mainstream investors to the general public, then you'll truly see that there is no rush like a great global gold rush.

What's more, there hasn't been a big gold discovery for many years. And despite soaring global demand, the World Gold Council expects gold production to stay flat or even decline over the next few years. The infrastructure is already woefully inadequate to meet current demand. But once demand really heats up, a massive supply gap will open up, causing the price of gold to skyrocket.

The argument for gold today is so compelling, there really is few greater investments for the volatile times ahead. In a special investment alert we'll rush you when you sign up for a risk-free trial membership to the Sovereign Society you'll learn all about some of the best ways to invest in this precious metal. It's called: Dirt Diggers: 7 Great Ways to Profit from $2500 Gold and $75 Silver!

Plus, in the special private monthly bulletins and daily e-letters we'll send you when you join, you'll also learn about many more little-known ways to profit safely from gold, silver, silver bullion coins, precious metal mining top stocks to buy and mutual funds, platinum, rare coins, colored diamonds and other commodities…
