Wealth Cycles and Why You Can’t Trust The Experts

 

 

Do you ever wonder why the same people who told you to buy and hold became curiously silent when the poo really started to hit the fan in the last major market meltdown? Some cynics have advanced the theory that it’s because many of the so called ‘financial advisors’ are getting a cut of your money whether the market rises or falls.  Now while this is true, I don’t see why they wouldn’t have given the sell signal when it became obvious that was the prudent thing to do? Perhaps it’s something as simple as their inability to discern the major trends known as ‘Wealth Cycles’.

 

What are ‘Wealth Cycles’?

Simply put, wealth cycles are huge market trends that occur usually over a decade or more and involve the transfer of a major chunk of the total market investment. It’s typical that by the time ‘Joe or Jane Six-Pak’ get on board, the cycle has already reached the bubble portion of its lifespan and no surprise here, the trading and brokerage houses do quite well but Joe and Jean are left feeling as empty as their bank accounts.

The easiest way to demonstrate wealth cycles and their impacts is to review the last three major ones that would have any man and woman very, very rich IF they had the foresight to invest at the right time and sell just before the bubble burst. Let’s take a look…

 

1. The 70’s Gold Craze

This one started off innocently enough. In 1971 gold was bumbling along at a paltry $42 an ounce.  The US dollar as well as all other major currencies were backed by gold so there was very little risk and very little fluctuation.  All that changed when Dick Nixon took the US off the gold standard and partly to defray the crippling cost of the Vietnam war, ran the printing presses flat out.  The sudden influx of money into the system made all the banks and financial investors nervous and they fled to gold.  The price started to climb and within 10 years the price shot to over $800 an ounce. You can guess when Joe and Jean bought their gold.  Yes, that’s right.  Right around the $600-800 range.  Just in time to see it spike and crash down to just below $300 in 1982.  If only they had known about it when gold was at $50 or even $60 they would have done just fine. But like so many of us, they got a hot tip from their friendly broker, wouldn’t you know? 

 

2. The 80’s Dot Com Boom

Just as gold began to lose it’s luster the money started to pour into the Nasdaq and the technology companies. All of a sudden, companies that had never developed a single widget, much less a profit, became the ‘go to’ place for investors.  Huge amounts of money poured into tech businesses and share prices doubled, then quadrupled, then went up by a power of ten. The sky was the limit and more and more people climbed aboard and fortunes were made. Joe and Jean arrived with all the money they could borrow and put it on the table. All of a sudden questions were being asked and projections were no longer considered cast in stone. The big investors began to bail.  Joe and Jean borrowed more and waded in deeper…

 

3. The Real Estate Debacle

When the big money fled the dot coms it needed a stable place to invest. People were fed up with high risk and only possible high reward investments. What could possibly be safer than real estate? Good old solid land with real buildings and real returns came into vogue and things began to churn. Soon more money than anyone had every imagined began to pour into real estate deals around the world. England, Spain, Ireland and in time even the good old US of A all had a turn. Tragically, with the same results. Yes, many people made money but many lost everything when the bubble finally burst and there were millions of sellers and very few buyers.

 

Now Let’s Suppose…

Just for a minute, imagine if you had the ability to see what you should have bought and when. And then, even more importantly, when you should have sold it all and gone to Vallarta for a holiday.  Sounds pretty surreal doesn’t it? But then again a lot of people did just that.  And retired. How about you? How would you react now if you knew where you should be putting your money to take advantage of the current wealth cycle? Would you be interested enough to at least take a look? And then, do your Due Diligence to make sure that you’re getting the straight goods. Look here and gather real,  timely advice that you will need to make the most of the current wealth cycle.  Don’t be like Joe and Jean and let the prime opportunity pass you by before you get involved.

    Hi Sigrid! Great post you have here! I wasn’t too familiar with the Gold craze because I was too young, but the other two, yes – those were EPIC times in history.

    Thanks so much for the great post.. It’s definitely something to think about and knowing the past, helps us anticipate how we can capitalize on the future.
