The fed is “buying its own debt”, AKA printing money without any backing of any kind to the tune of about 5% to 10% of our economy each year, debasing our currency. Meanwhile prices go up but the federal government claims inflation is low to keep the smoke and mirrors going. And then people like you come along saying how the stock market is going up so all is well... Never mind that the dollars purchasing those stocks are worth less each day so it take more of them to buy the same quantity of stock... In addition since the government is faking the inflation numbers CD’s, savings accounts, bonds pay practically nothing compared to the rate the dollar is declining in value so you are loosing money in any of these type “investments”. So the only game in town to try to hold on to any wealth you may have is precious metals and the stock market. Gee I wonder why those have been rising... And you think that’s a good sign... Amazing...
The stock market is rigged now. Stock prices no longer have a relationship to earnings. An easier game to play is commercial real estate where prices do track earnings, and capital gains taxes can be avoided forever. The way to deal with low interest rates and high inflation is borrow as much as you can and sink it into an income producing property. Most investors leverage their money times 4. If you can't by a medical office building for the Obamacare wave you can start out with a 4-plex rental. If you live in one unit you can get a 30 year fixed loan with very little down. Sometime in the next 30 years that fixed rate will be worth more than gold. Commercial real estate investors typically make 12% annual return on their money which is better and safer and taxed less than anything else right now.
Gold and silver have been used as money and a store of wealth for thousands of years. Every fiat currency that has existed ultimately collapsed. Every. Single. One.
Like every 'bubble' the last guy in will be left holding the bag and then crying 'how could this happen'!
