Gold could be the next big trade

The only stock that I think has a great upside potential from here and in fact the GDXJ, the Junior Gold Mining Index is up 41 percent since the October lows and gold is up 14 percent since the October lows and this year 9 percent.

Over the last 4 months, the sentiment on Gold was the most bearish I have seen. 

I think gold has a lot of upside potential, because I think people will wake up finally. I say finally that if they could short, sell short the central banks, that is the trade of the century. The central banks will be exposed of what fraud they commit.

Most people would rather have an unpleasant experience than do nothing

Recently, Bloomberg published an article by Michelle Fay Cortez (July 4, 2014) entitled: “Shocking: Many Pick Electric Jolt Over Solitude in Study.” 

The article explains that most people vastly prefer passive activities like reading or listening to music over spending just a few minutes by themselves. People tend to avoid being alone with their own thoughts.

According to the study published, "Being alone with no distractions was so distasteful to two-thirds of men and a quarter of women that they elected to give themselves mild electric shocks rather than sit quietly in a room with nothing but the thoughts in their heads. Maybe the mind is built to exist in the world, and people would prefer to have a negative experience rather than none at all."

Randy Kasten who is the author of “Just Trust Me: Finding the Truth in a World of Spin” explains that, “The ability to think critically is one skill separating innovators from followers. Critical thinking reduces the power of advertisers, the unscrupulous and the pretentious, and can neutralize the sway of an unsupported argument.”

Marc Faber says everything will collapse in the end game

I happen to believe that eventually we will have a systemic crisis and everything will collapse. But the question is really between here and then. Will everything collapse with Dow Jones 20,000 or 50,000 or 10 million?
