June 30, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: GLD , SKF , SRS

I ignore most talking heads on CNBC, many are "empty suits" and/or "paid liars". I do follow Marc Faber. If you look at Mish Shedlock's blog or the Big Picture you will see Marc Faber's book Tomorrow's Gold. I cannot recommend it enough, especially for "bulls", "buy and holder", the young, the CNBC followers.... well everybody really.   [more]

RBS issues global stock and credit crash alertBy Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, International Business Editor
Last Updated: 12:19am BST 19/06/2008

The Royal Bank of Scotland has advised clients to brace for a full-fledged crash in global stock and credit markets over the next three months as inflation paralyses the major central banks.

"A very nasty period is soon to be upon us - be prepared," said Bob Janjuah, the bank's credit strategist.

A report by the bank's research team warns that the S&P 500 index of Wall Street equities is likely to fall by more than 300 points to around 1050 by September as "all the chickens come home to roost" from the excesses of the global boom, with contagion spreading across Europe and emerging markets.   [more]
