Our guest notes that portfolio diversification remains the hallmark of financial success, yet the typical stock / bond portfolio embraces inadequate asset weighting.
Proper diversification requires the adjustment of overall portfolio beta via negatively correlated assets to stocks / bonds.
Gold fulfills this requirement better than virtually any competing alternative investment.
According to research form BMG, the typical 60/40 stock and bond portfolio requires at least a 20% gold component to prepare for the coming market volatility - geopolitical instability.
By raising cash from selling overvalued investments, such as shares, Nick Barisheff proposes that the gold component will rise parabolically
Additional threats to investors include news that Saudi Arabia, China and Russia could continue to divest US dollar denominated assets and shun dollar based oil transactions.
This will further weaken the petrodollar arrangement while augmenting the appeal for sound money assets, such as gold and silver.
The theme has already occurred as evidenced by several new trade agreements.
Might this subtle yet sea change event share a correlation with the growing question homelessness epidemic facing the world's "wealthiest nation?"
Our guest derives the true value of gold as over $10,000 and advises monitoring the price of bullion gold for a divergence from the ethereal, paper contracts.
He further hypothesizes this event will occur at $3,000-$5,000 per ounce. Once this happens he suggests a startling price projection of $50,000 per ounce.
Nick Barisheff leaves the listener's with a valuable market axiom, "Put 10-20% into gold and hope it doesn't work."
The host likens gold to the ballast of a sailboat keel - no noteworthy captain would hoist the sails without first securing the keel - gold is the perfect keel ballast for every portfolio.
Continuing the intrepid investigation into the TI phenomenon, the Vice Channel presents a groundbreaking expose of the holocost-like world of the TI (figure 1.1.).
Chris Blasi, President of Neptune Global LLC underscores gold's 4000 year track record as sound money, noting further that the year 2000 gold bull market is still underway.
Now that the 50% retracement has past from the 2011 zenith, new records are anticipated.
The third year of a multi-year bull advance could yield the most profitable stage of the 18 year bull market.
His PMC ounce system had its genesis in 2008 and represents a diversified portfolio of PMs with a weighted position in silver, gold, platinum and palladium.
The PMC ounce system oftentimes outperforms the individual markets via lessened risk / volatility (figure 1.1.).
In addition, palladium (PALL) has doubled in price over the past year on the heels of solid auto manufacturing numbers and related demand for catalytic converters.
Related PMs could follow suit, advancing sharply as economic euphoria returns to the mean, improving the case for wealth insurance.
Chris Blasi expects gold to increase by at least 2x's, mirroring the sentiments of several experts in the PMs field.
His most conservative number is $2,500-$3,000 by 2020. On a percentage basis silver could outperform gold, climbing from a current price of $16 to $75 in approximately two years.
The physical gold / silver bullion markets are so thin, once the uptrend begins in earnest, our guest concurs with the host, investors who hesitate to purchase at current bargain prices may face significant bullion premiums in the coming weeks / months.
A remarkably heroic radiologist and a researcher Dr. Daniel Leibovitz M.D. / Dr. Robert Duncan, risk their careers, livelihoods, reputations and lives in defense of the targeted individual community (figure 1.2.).

$10,000 Gold: Why Gold's Inevitable Rise Is the Investor's Safe Haven (please click the image:)
For the past decade, Nick Barisheff has focused on the world of precious metals and the advantages of investors holding physical gold, silver, and platinum bullion . As president and CEO of Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG), a precious metals management company, he uses his understanding of the precious metals markets to develop strategies, products and services for clients looking to integrate bullion into their portfolios. His view on the precious metals sector is that gold, silver and platinum in bullion form, are a vital component of a client's financial program and should make up ten percent or more of a well-diversified portfolio.
In 2002, he launched BMG and BMG BullionFund, Canada’s only RSP eligible open-end mutual fund trust that purchases equal dollar amounts of gold, silver and platinum bullion. More recently, BMG expanded it products by launching BMG Gold BullionFund and the BMG BullionBars program. Mr. Barisheff specifically designed all BMG products to meet the three fundamental attributes of owning bullion: liquidity, no counterparty risk and independent of management skills. In 2011, BMG became an Associate Member of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA).
Widely recognized as an international bullion expert, Barisheff writes numerous articles on bullion and current market trends, which are published on various news and business websites. Nick has appeared on BNN, CBC, CNBC, Sun Media and does countless interviews in leading business publications across North America, Europe and Asia. He is a soon to be published author with his book $10,000 Gold: The Inevitable Rise and the Investor’s Safe Haven. Every investor who is seeking the safety of sound money will benefit from Nick’s insights into the portfolio-preserving power of gold.
Through BMG, Mr. Barisheff is continuing to develop products and services that allow investors of every level, from institutional to “do-it-yourself” individuals, take full advantage of buying and holding uncompromised bullion in a diversified portfolio.
