The Financial Intelligence Report is the monthly newsletter bringing together some of the sharpest minds from the worlds of finance, investing, and economics.
Containing insights and opinions not found anywhere else, The Financial Intelligence Report gives readers an unprecedented look at how events are likely to unfold in the United States and across the globe over the coming weeks, months, and years, as seen by our panel of experts.
This distinguished group comprises individuals from numerous countries with a broad range of backgrounds and fields of expertise, including:
James Dale Davidson — author of numerous books including The Sovereign Individual and founder of the National Taxpayers Union.
Lord William Rees-Mogg — along with Davidson, co-authored The Great Reckoning, The Sovereign Individual, and Blood in the Streets.
Robert Wiedemer — author and economist who accurately predicted the collapse of the U.S. housing market, equity markets, and the private debt and consumer spending bubbles in his 2006 book America's Bubble Economy.
Axel Merk — portfolio manager for the Merk Hard Currency Fund as well as the founder and president of Merk Investments, an independent investment advisory service.
Hans Parisis — Belgian-born bank economist who has advised global billionaires and governments on the financial markets and international investments.
Arnaud de Borchgrave — noted editor and journalist who covered most of the world's major news events, including 18 wars. He was appointed editor-in-chief of The Washington Times in 1985, a post he held until 1991.
The Financial Intelligence Report also features a rotating cast of experts, such as investment guru Jim Rogers and renowned financial publisher Steve Forbes, who give exclusive interviews or content to The Financial Intelligence Report on an ongoing basis.
The investment recommendations from our panel of experts have thoroughly trounced the markets. Just take a look at this chart:
If you had invested $100,000 in the model portfolio of The Financial Intelligence Report in 2003, the end result would have been $405,000. If you had invested in the S&P, the result would be a dismal $155,000 . . . a difference of $250,000.
The consortium has put together a track record that is impressive not only for its success, but also for its ability to accurately predict many of the events that have impacted the global economy over the last few years.
In our January 2008 report, we stated, "We have long touted investing globally. However, several countries are linked to commodity prices . . . We also believe China's economy is racing for a major fall-off. Continue to look for price opportunities as stock market woes in the United States and Europe may spread to emerging markets."
As you can see in the chart below, Chinese shares fell sharply.
In April 2008, we gave readers our insight on oil prices. We recommended taking a position in the ProShares UltraShort Oil and Gas ETF (DUG) as a way to profit from a sharp drop in oil prices. In the June 2008 issue we reiterated our stance, telling readers "Continue to hold and buy this position; it is sure to show big returns as oil prices fall."
As you can see, soon after our oil call, crude nose-dived from its $147 high to the mid-$20 range as hedge funds fled their oil positions in a panic. Oil oversold and sharply rebounded, of course, but the timely price prediction was dead-on for our subscribers.
And finally, in February 2009, one of our experts made this call: "We soon should be in a market rally that lasts anywhere from six months to two years. During this period, the Dow could regain anywhere from 50 to 100 percent of its losses, which would mean a Dow ranging from 10,500 to 12,000 in the coming 24 months."
As you know, the market hit bottom the very next month, and went on a historic rally that continues to this day.
Having access to this information before these events occurred allowed readers of The Financial Intelligence Report to safely position themselves to avoid the devastating consequences, and profit from the unique opportunities presented by our expert panel.
