Fast and Furious: Time to Buckle Up

Jan 11 – In today's Big Picture, Jim Puplava and Chris Preitauer discuss Financial Sense Wealth Management's annual forecast where we give our own view for 2019. While there has been talk of recession in 2019 or 2020, the numbers seem to tell a different story and some of our conclusions may surprise you. We discuss what triggered the selloff in oil and what happens when you approach the end of a Fed rate raising cycle.

Then, in the latter half of the program we also look at the escalation in the trade war between the US and China, and political discord as we now make history with the longest government shutdown ever.
