  • Time Is Running Out for Maximum Gains on This Olympic Trade

    The 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games start in just three days, on Aug. 5. That means there's not much time to put on this beautiful trade that's shaping up.

    This trade has it all: a short window with little uncertainty, the potential of windfall gains in the near future, and for folks who are buying in this market, the chance to grab an outperforming long-term investment, too.

    The time is quite literally right to make this move. Here's what I mean…

    Some of us will remember the 2008 Beijing Summer Games. They were spectacular, of course, but they were also 12 whole hours out of sync with the U.S. East Coast. The 2012 London Games were even better, but they were five hours ahead of schedule. Peoples' favorite events were live at really inconvenient times, and "spoilers" were practically unavoidable, letting down some of the most rabid sports fans and putting a damper on consumption.

    But the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games will be just an hour ahead of one of the world's biggest, richest media markets.

    And one of America's biggest media companies is taking some remarkable, high-tech steps to make a killing on Americans' insatiable taste for real-time Olympic entertainment.

    In doing that, it's setting itself up for even bigger gains long after the Olympics are over...
  • Glencore Collapse Could Be Even Worse Than Feared

    A lot of powerful voices have joined me in warning about the potential threat that Glencore Plc. (LON: GLEN) poses to global financial markets. Bank of America, for instance, has published a report on the true size of the fallout. As you'll see in a moment, it's staggering.

    But since we talked about Glencore late last month, something insane has happened: The stock has gone up.

    But not for any good reason. The company has not righted the ship. The surge is only due to short-sellers covering their positions.

    The ugly truth is, the company is still a "shining" example of exactly what's wrong with these markets.

    And I fear individual investors will get caught in the mess and wiped out on a stock like this or some of the others around it.

    That's why I want to call out the misapprehensions and lies that are causing this "fauxcovery" and show you what's next.

    Because it could end up even worse than I thought...
