Trump Trade Wars Could Bring Real Wars




 If there is a trade war I assure you we should all be very, very worried. Trade wars through out history have never worked, nobody has ever won a trade war. (iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index ETF (FXI), SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY))

Jim Rogers Bearish on The Japanese Yen




I am skeptical about the Japanese Yen. Some people consider the Yen as a safe haven when compared to the U.S. Dollar. It will be stronger then the Euro Currency (EUR) or less weak than the Euro,

I should say, but I would not buy the Yen either. There is some money that goes to the Yen on the mistaken view that it is a safe haven too, but the Japanese have gigantic debts as well, their internal debts are higher than in the U.S. and it is not a place to put money.

Interest Rates Shooting up Worldwide



 There is no question that interest rates are going to go higher all over the world. We have a very artificial situation with interest rates at zero, negative interest rates in some places. That is not normal and it will not last!

Jim Rogers Warns : When Interest Rates Rise Junk Bonds will Collapse






Junk bonds will be in trouble when interest rates rise I know when interest rates start going up again permanently when the bull market really does come to an end and the interest rates, government bonds, interest rates are going to go very, very high ...., very high if I told you how high you would probably hang up now and not listen to me anymore. But in 1981 interest rates – short term interest rates in America – were over 20%, bonds were yielding over – long term bonds – was yielding over 15%.


 We've had these long, long bull and bear markets in bonds in the United States and we probably will again. So when interest rates go higher the junk bonds are going to get destroyed both by interest rates and by credit defaults because many of them are in fact junk, the companies are not great creditors and they're going to pay the price.
