How Higher Interest Rates Can Cause a Stock Market Crash

The news surrounding the Fed earlier this month had many investors wondering how higher interest rates can cause a stock market crash.

How to Profit from Every Major World Currency… Before Central Bankers Kill Them

By my count, there are no less than 180 currencies circulating as legal tender in the world today. There are several dozen alternative and digital currencies in play, although how useful they are remains debatable.

But for the time being, just five currencies – the Big Five – fuel the global economy. They are, in order: gold (anyone who tells you gold is a commodity and not a currency is an idiot – probably a dangerous one, like Ben Bernanke);

  • the U.S. dollar;
  • the euro;
  • the Chinese yuan; and

Until that day (which just might get here sooner than you think), these currencies will go up and down relative to one another in a kind of domino effect.

And that's precisely where the most profitable trades are...
