D.R. on Varney & Co.: Trade and Currency Wars Are the First Step…

On my weekly appearance on Varney & Co. yesterday, many concerns for the market came up. I couldn’t emphasize enough that the analysis saying a U.S. recession is imminent in the next 9 months, I simply don’t buy. Instead, we can expect within that time frame a global economic recession of that level. While that may sound worse, the U.S. will actually be the best off compared to the rest of the world. See the video below for more details.

So while the trade and currency wars are of real concern, that’s not the only front in which China has become a threat. My associate Dr. Kent Moors, a former high ranking intelligence officer and advisor to the highest levels of the U.S. government has informed me of China’s increased militarization of the South China Sea putting not only their neighbors on alert, but U.S. soldiers stationed there. For the past several years, China have been occupying a chain of the Paracel Islands and from there Beijing has been upgrading facilities in the region… deploying surface-to-air missiles, building 20 hangars at the airfield, upgrading two harbors and performing substantial land reclamation.

D.R. on Mornings with Maria: Protect Yourself from a U.S. – China Trade War

While I was in New York last week for my regular weekly appearance on Varney & Co., I had a chance encounter with one of the biggest names in financial journalism, Maria Bartiromo, in the Fox Business Green Room. While we chatted, Maria very graciously invited me to be on her show.

And so, early this morning, I made my very first appearance on Mornings with Maria to discuss the renewed tensions between the U.S. and China over trade deal negotiations.

As I mentioned in my video update earlier, China has reneged on previously agreed provisions in trade negotiations, prompting the President to announce a new round of sanctions on Chinese goods.

Maria and I had a great conversation about what is spooking the markets about the latest posturing from the world’s two largest economies, and what it will make market conditions look like in the remainder of the year.

We also talked about how the U.S. has the upper hand in negotiations, what they need to accomplish with any new trade deal, and – most importantly – a few companies where you should be placing (or “hiding”) new investments to insulate your portfolio from trade war volatility.
