BONDS FLASHING WARNING SIGN - Why NOW Is the Time to Be a Crisis Investor

The Team 
JUL 14, 2022

The bond market is flashing a big warning sign...

For the first time in 40 years, the annualized real yield of bonds is negative.

That means bonds, typically viewed as a “safe” investment, aren’t protecting investors' portfolios like they used to. In fact, they’re not even yielding enough to keep up with inflation.

Best-selling author, Mike Maloney of, invites Ronnie Stoeferle to discuss this phenomenon and what it means to your portfolio.

Ronnie is a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and a Certified Financial Technician (CFT), who works as Managing Partner for Incrementum AG. His firm has poured over 140 years of bond and equity data, and compiled their findings in their latest research report, “In Gold We Trust”.

The conclusion?

We could be in for some more rough times ahead…

“While equities are still yielding pretty high returns, the annualized real return on bonds is in negative territory for the first time in almost 40 years. So that would kind of suggest that the bond markets have seen a lot of pain, but for equity markets we’re probably not there [max pain] yet…” – Ronnie Stoeferle of Incrementum AG

Mike wholeheartedly agrees with Ronnie’s assessment. He says, “We’ve seen, probably not even half of the pain yet [in the equities market]. It depends whether or not we’re in a recession or if we’re going into a recession…”

With all of this chaos and uncertainty in the markets right now, and the price of many equities plummeting, there are some incredibly good deals to be had out there, if you’re willing to be patient and disciplined…

But – Ronnie and Mike both agree that investors need to use caution when investing in stocks. These rough times we’re experiencing today could be just getting started.

Fortunately, Mike believes there is one thing that you can do – right now – to help protect yourself in this market, and during a potentially looming currency crisis.

“A lot of people are panicking right now. I’m not. I feel good. I’m in precious metals. This is the time to sell equities and buy precious metals…”  – Mike Maloney

Mike believes it’s critically important for everyone to own real assets like gold and silver… Because history shows time and time again, that during times of crisis, gold is the asset people turn to.

If you already own gold – or are thinking about purchasing some for the first time – this is a video you don’t want to miss.
