The stock market today, at 170% of GDP, is not in any regard reflective of the underlying conditions of global central banks tightening into a worldwide recession. This statement from Michael Pento, our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio. Your host, Dennis Tubbergen, talks with Pento about the comparison of today’s equities market to the 140% gap in the 2000 tech stock bubble, the 104% gap in the 2008 real estate bubble, and the potential for a deflationary depression.

Michael Pento is the President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies with more than 27 years of investment experience. He was the portfolio creator and consultant to Delta/Claymore’s commodity portfolios that raised more than $3 billion, distributed through Claymore/Guggenheim’s sales network.

The markets are down over 20 percent this year, but it’s only the beginning according to our guest this week on Retirement Lifestyle Advocates radio, Mr. Michael Oliver. “We’re talking about a 12-year plus bull market that went vertical on the S&P, sevenfold increase due to monetary policy and credit, and a 16-fold increase in the Nasdaq-100. Those sort of bull markets you’ve never seen in the history of the United States. Your host Dennis Tubbergen talks with Mr. Oliver about the markets, and why gold doesn’t behave like other commodities.

Michael Oliver has been studying markets for over four decades, but it was the 1987 stock market crash that became his “aha!” moment and converted him to what he calls “momentum structural analysis.” Mr. Oliver is the CEO of Momentum Structural Analysis LLC based in Greensboro, North Carolina. He is also the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism. Since 1992 Momentum Structural Analysis has provided unique technical research to the financial industry – banks, RIAs, hedge funds, and mutual funds – as well as to individual investors.
