Wealth in Multi Currency Waves

by | Jun 30, 2010 | Archives

There is wealth in catching multi currency waves.

See multi currency waves below.   Having captured just four would have made you one of the wealthiest people on earth.

We just completed our International Investment & Business Course in West Jefferson, North Carolina.

Here is what a few of the delegates wrote to me about this seminar.

“Thank you so much for your invitation to your seminar.  I was thoroughly impressed with your choice of speakers and your emphasis on ‘wholistic’ investing.”

“Gary,   Thanks for a great Seminar and a great afternoon tea.  I have met many ‘like minded’ folks this weekend.”

“We are grinning from ear to ear – pleased about the interest in his work and the positive flow of $.  Thanks so much for your southern hospitality as always, and the opportunity to get together again.  You are the best!  Hopefully you are giving the throat a well needed rest, and that the both of you are feeling the love and warmth and balancings we are sending your way.”

“Hello Gary,  I got back to Virginia at 1 AM yesterday and am finally catching up on paperwork today. This is the most fun that I’ve had in ages! I plan to spend this long weekend putting together the format, formulas, reading and figuring out the underlying financial concepts. Look forward to your data input.  Thank-you again for so much meme generosity.”

These courses look at how to invest and do business globally as well as how to prepare mentally and physically to succeed in times of rapid change.

Thomas Fischer speaks at many of our courses and often shares market waves that made some investors really rich.


Here is Thomas speaking to a group at our North Carolina home.

The seven waves are:

1970s: Gold


1980s: Nikkei 225


1990s: Nasdaq


2000s: Crude oil
I reviewed seven multi currency waves I have followed over the last 42 years.

During the 42 years I have been investing abroad, I have enjoyed seven golden trends.

#1: 1970s Gold & Silver.

#2: Japan , Germany , Switzerland , England, Australia and Hong Kong .

#3: 1980s. The Tigers, Taiwan , Singapore Malaysia and South Korea  & Turkey .

#4: 1990s. South America (which led me to Ecuador).

#5: 2000s. China , India and Eastern Europe .

#6: Good Value Real Estate Throughout.

#7: Bet Against the US Dollar Throughout

The biggest of these seven trends has been the declining US dollar as this chart from the Grandfather Economic Report shows. The dollar drop has accompanied all the other trends.


Now an eighth trend, perhaps the most powerful of them all, Green Investments is warming up.
We can see this in an excerpt from an article in yesterday’s USA Today Money Section entitled  “Tesla Motors stock finds buyers on first trading day”
by Kathleen Galligan which says:

DETROIT — Shares of Tesla Motors climbed in their trading debut Tuesday even though the carmaker that has never made money and has sold just 1,000 cars the entire time it’s been in business.

Tesla’s performance was a feat in a sour market that has forced many companies looking to raise funds through IPOs to accept lower prices to get deals done.
Investors snapped up Tesla’s shares even as the broader markets took a beating. The stock soared $6.89, or 40.5% from its offering price, to close at $23.89 — marking the second-biggest first-day gain among initial public offerings this year.
Tesla’s IPO came on a day when U.S. stocks fell more than 2% — following Asian and European markets lower — on worries that the economy is slowing. Tesla’s shares initially traded as high as $19, but quickly pared that gain. The company’s shares rose 99 cents, or 5.8%, to $17.99 in midday trading.
The company trades on the Nasdaq stock exchange under the ticker “TSLA.”
This looks like a really bad investment to me.  Yet despite the fact that the market (as we recently warned here) is in a negative mode this share is performing well.
Why? Because green is hot.  The deterioration of our environment is a huge problem. Problems create opportunity and investors know it.
At the June North Carolina seminar we looked at seven places to invest now including green investments. They are:
•Multi Currency Interest Spreads
•Value Markets
•Emerging Markets
•Water Alternate Energy
•Truth & Cohesion
•Real Estate

Join me with Thomas Fischer in Copenhagen this August or next Ocotber in North Carolina.

The strong US dollar makes this the year to enjoy Europe and Thomas Fischer at Jyske just sent me this note: Gary due to the increasing US dollar, the fee for our August seminar in Copenhagen for Americans has dropped from about $2,050 to $1,700, a 15% discount.

I love attending these seminars because of the great speakers and this year one speaker will be Bjorn Lomborg known as the “Skeptical Environmentalist.”  See more on Lomberg here.

Another speaker will be Jeff Rubin. Rubin was the Chief Economist for CIBC, a North American investment bank for 20 years. See more about Rubin here.

One of the key note speakers is Kenneth Rogoff  who is the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Rogoff is the former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund and has predicted “a bunch of sovereign defaults” in the next few years. He gave a warning that Greece is likely to be the first domino of several to fall.

Ezra Klein economic analyst for the Washington Post writes about Rogoff:  In their book “This Time is Different,” Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff construct the richest and most detailed history of financial crises that anyone has developed. Their data set covers 66 countries, five continents and eight centuries, and gives them an unparalleled ability to see patterns and predictors amongst different types of crashes. And see them they do. I spoke to Rogoff about the causes, trajectories and solutions to financial crises earlier today.

See details on how to join Merri and me at Jyske’s bi annual Copenhagen seminar here Global Wealth Management Seminar.

Some great things about the Copenhagen conference are the seminar of course…then there’s the stunning food and the wonderful visits included…This package includes:
accommodation at the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel for four nights, (25-28 August) including breakfast,  Reception and dinner at the bank’s Copenhagen offices, seminar fee and materials for the seminar sessions on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. full lunches on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, canal & harbour tour on Friday in the late afternoon, four-course gala dinner with entertainment and dancing on Saturday evening, and a Sunday excursion including lunch.

Merri and I always go on the excursion also to Silkebord with a drive out into the country, lovely food, picnic cruise and a chance to see the main office and the trading center.  This is always our most interesting, favorite and delightful conference…and we hope you will join us there!  We love the stroll along the harbor, the fresh air, wonderful meals and interesting people from all over the world.
