As the markets have rebounded to ever more ludicrous heights this year, a singular question has become increasingly urgent. To wit,
“How can I avoid becoming collateral damage when the inevitable breakdown happens?”
That question has become red hot with salience this week as the US/China gong show unfolds in Washington. The level of confusion, conflicting signals and sheer incompetence is so high that even the Wall Street chart-monkeys are getting vertigo.
Unfortunately, whether there is a further interim trade truce or even some kind of face saving shape-of-the-table “deal”, which merely initiates further rounds of uncertainty-generating negotiations, doesn’t really matter. What’s happening is that Wall Street and Washington have run out of room to kick the can on trade and a host of other incendiary issues.
The Fed has become a confused tower of babel, Washington is bitterly divided and paralyzed politically like never before, the national debt and US treasuring borrowing are soaring and the Orange Swan in the Oval Office is close to being completely out of control.
These conditions would be problematic enough in normal times—yet this moment is anything but normal. The system just can’t take any big shocks because the Fed is out of dry powder, main street is buried in debt and Wall Street is feverish with end-of-the-bubble speculation,
Literally, anything could happen next.
So to address these fraught conditions head-on, we will be holding a free webinar on Saturday, May 18th at noon ET.
We will be discussing our latest political, economic and market outlook with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com. We’ll identify the risks that most concern us and the key crash indicators we’re watching most closely.
But more than just data, we also want to give you ideas for action—-for how to avoid becoming collateral damage as the two ends of the Acela Corridor threaten to stumble into a monumental collision.
That’s why we will also be joined by the managing partners of Peak Prosperity’s endorsed financial advisory firm who will field live Q&A from the audience regarding your most important questions on prudently navigating today’s dangerous markets.

And don’t worry if you can’t attend the webinar when it airs live. A replay video of the full event will be sent out afterwards to everyone who registers.
One thing you can be sure of is that it’s only going to get more turbulent, confusing and unpredictable from here. So now is the time to get prepared and to put in place a portfolio strategy that can weather whatever may come barreling down the treacherous pike ahead. Register for this webinar now.
