Part 2: Central Bankers are Revving Up the Helicopters
Yesterday, I noted that three former central bankers were openly advocating for central banks to implement “helicopter money” during the next economic downturn.
Helicopter money consists of the Fed printing money and funneling it directly into the economy by either:
- Directly financing government budgets.
- Paying money directly to citizens.
The idea of helicopter money has been floating around economic circles for years, but to my knowledge this is the first time we’ve seen three former central bankers openly calling for it.
These central bankers are:
- Philipp Hildebrand: Former head of the Switzerland’s central bank
- Stanley Fischer: Former vice-chair of the Federal Reserve
- Jean Boivin: Former Deputy Governor of Canada’s central bank
Put simply, these are three HIGHLY connected and influential former central bankers. In this regard, their article can be considered a blueprint for what’s to come as far as central bank policy during the next economic downturn.
Now, the big question is, “how do you profit from this?”
The simplest answer for “buy and hold” investors is: buy gold.
Gold: A True Store of Money
Below is a chart showing gold priced in U.S. dollars (dark blue line), Euros (orange line), and Yen (light blue line).
You’ll note that gold has exploded higher against all three currencies right around the same time: mid 2019.
It is not coincidence that gold did this around the time central banks began talking about introducing extreme monetary pressures. In a world in which every central bank wants to devalue its currency, gold represents one of the true stores of money that can’t be devalued.
Bear in mind, the precious metal is extremely overbought and needs to correct or consolidate. But if you’re a “buy and hold” investor, the precious metal is one of the best places to look going forward.
However, if you’re looking for larger, faster gains, helicopter money is going to represent a “trader’s paradise.”
Volatile Currency Markets Equal Profits
You see, as central banks begin to implement helicopter money, it’s going to result in EXTREME volatility in the currency markets.
For anyone who knows how to “get in, make money, and get out” this will represent one of the greatest trading opportunities in history.
This is why I’ve spent the last six months developing a proprietary trading system, Alpha Currency Profits, to do exactly that.
Since its creation, Alpha Currency Profits has shown returns of 52% in two days, 75% in five days, 79% in four days, and even 100% in just four days.
And mind you, those are just the gains we’ve seen since early JUNE!
If you’re interested in seeing these kinds of returns, you can find out more about this unique trading system below… and the best part is, we’re trading currencies without touching the dangerous foreign exchange (FOREX) market!
