It turns out retail investors are sitting on less cash than they ever. That means the majority of their money is invested and NOT sitting on the sidelines.
And can you blame them?
The market just continues to climb. Everyone is suggesting it's going to go higher. Sure, there are a few voices on the outside suggesting we might be running hot, or even headed for a disaster but in a world where yield is scarce what else you can do?
You stay invested, you invest more. It's the blind leading the blind right now, but I'm reminded of some very sage advice I got when I was learning to trade.
"When the retail money shows up, it's time to get out."
What that means is, when uneducated money is the fuel for a stock, sector or market it's time for you to look for an exit because that's what all the smart money is doing.
How do we know the smart money from the dumb money? That's the catch. You only find out after the market corrects.
I'm not saying get out; I'm not saying stay in. What I'm saying is this market is no longer running on sound fundamentals, and the stupidest investors on earth have the bulk of their wealth invested. If that doesn't give you pause, I don't know what will.

Answer a simple question for me...
WHEN in history has an increase in technology and production lead to an overall decline in a societies standard of living?
Even if you look at war and the massive increased in the technology used for violence, the overall result has been a decrease in casualties due to the discriminating nature of the tools of war now being utilized.
It's silly to think our lives will be diminished with the advancement of AI. Jobs will be lost, that's a given, but there will always be a place for humanity to provide value and meaning to themselves and others if they only seek to find it.

Yeah, that last one got me too. It appears that in an attempt to make the shutdown sound as bad as humanly possible CNN may have overstepped in it's reporting when it suggested an asteroid might strike earth while NASA's program to monitor the sky was on hold.
I question the need for the program at all given the fact that there's nothing you can do about it if a gigantic rock decided to crash into earth. Better to just live in blissful ignorance.
Luckily he's not under oath this time, so when the truth comes out, he won't be eligible for another purgery charge.
You'd think people would learn from the mistakes of the past, so they don't repeat them, but most of the politicians I've known seem to live in a kind of reality denial that allows them to support and promote the most ridiculous ideas for the sake of their ideology.
Enjoy the Show!

I know you've all been wondering what happened to Darren and the truth is, a lot has happened over the past year that I haven't been able to talk with you about, but today I break the gag order and spill the beans.
The truth, I'm afraid will be far less interesting than the speculation that it's important you know everything that's been going on behind the scenes.
I've also got a KILLER article on capitalism that gave me some great ammunition to discuss what's wrong with our current system and how you can ensure you come out on top.
See you next week!

As you know, we don't do anything in a vacuum here. All the news I discuss is carried forward from day to day, and on this episode, I've got a lot to share.
As you know, Venezuela is in turmoil. They are in the final throws of economic collapse brought on by socialist policies run amuck.
But how much of Venezuela's problems is America facing? We'll discuss today.

Apparently, a clean bill of health from the president's doctor isn't enough to stop CNN from questioning, among other things, his calcium count.
Can I just ask...is anyone shocked that the 71-year-old narcissist president doesn't have a SINGLE medical issue? I guess it's possible but come on. LOL
All that said, CNN is no longer legitimate news. It's embarrassing to watch.

Logic might dictate that the Democrats would get shackled with the backlash from a shutdown resulting from their unwillingness to negotiate a short-term stop-gap but if you think that, you'd be wrong.
No, this time the shutdown is happening because the president rejected a deal he said he would accept and Democrats "care" too much about the "children" to allow a funding bill to go through without DACA.
But there is one shining light from congresswoman Tusi Gabbard who gave a very clear rationale for North Koreas actions. I'll play you the clip on today's show.

The Stock market gapped up to nearly 26,000 today and briefly spiked above it before retreating. As of this writing, we're resting near yesterdays close.
It's a bad sign (when the market gaps and retreats like that). It's a signal a retracement is coming.
More and more people are starting to sound warning bells about the euphoria in the market, but nobody wants to miss the upside.
If you need an example of this, you can look at bitcoin. I don't like it as an investment due to the high volatility, but my warnings of an impending disaster have been met with an explosion in the price of the aspiring currency.
If you're a fund manager, you can't afford to be out of this market even if you think the wheels are coming off because if you're early, even by a little, you'll miss earnings and your investors will bail.
It's a big problem on Wallstreet. Nobody wants to be the first one out. Everyone rides the wave until the recession hits and when the dive happens, you just hope you lose a little less than everyone else.
I've always said no one cares more about your money than you do and if you want to really control your financial destiny, you need to understand what is happening with your investments.
There's a lot of different concerns when it comes to tariffs, but I thought I'd spend a little time discussing the issue in detail.

Lots of people screaming about the president's comments over immigrants from "shithole" countries.
Truth is this entire debate is about using young as political pawns in a game to get more money and more "stuff".
Frankly, I don't have any respect for someone who would do that or the group of men providing cover for the president as he does it.
This is my first show from the new studio in LA, and I'd love to tell you it was a barn burner but there were a lot of moving pieces. All I can say is, the show is going to ROCK this year.
Finally, before I let you go I wanted to let you know that I will be the keynote speaker at the San Diego Libertarian Party Convention on January 27th. I'm going to put together a meetup for anyone who wants to attend.
Here are the details:

We've talked about this before on the show, but it's been so long I thought it would be a good idea to revisit it today.
The government wants power and to have power they need control. They use central banks to control your money and if they get their way they will use those banks to prevent you from ever having the freedom to use that money without their knowledge.
A lot of people dismissed this as conspiracy theory, but like many of the conspiracies we've outlined on the show, this one isn't a theory at all. It's a fact.
But what would a cashless society mean to you, your money and your life? Would it really be all that bad? Tune in today to find out.

Even Fox News is jumping on the net neutrality fear mongering. In an article from their website they claim "On Thursday, the FCC repealed Obama-era net neutrality rules, junking the long-time principle that all web traffic must be treated equally."
What do they mean "long-term principle"? The current regulation has only been in effect since 2015! And what about the claim that all web traffic must be treated equally? Why? Why can't I buy faster speeds if I want to? Why can't I save money if I don't want or need faster speeds?
And let us not forget the underlying truth about net neutrality. The regulation attempted to fix a problem that didn't exist. It was an excuse for the government to finally get it hands on one of the last "free" markets on earth. And the sad thing is, most people championed the move.
Now that it's been repealed what changes can you expect? None, absolutely nothing will change. There wasn't a problem before, and there won't be one now. What you may see are new options in internet speeds based on the needs of the consumer but you aren't going to be throttled or blocked by your ISP from seeing specific content.
