If you want to invest in stocks do what I'm doing. Invest internationally, invest in foreign stocks. The valuation gap is enormous you've never had foreign stocks so cheap relative to two US stocks.

Let me get to what's been going on in in the market. The big story in the market is the continued weakness in the US dollar.
Remember the Dollar Index rose about 6% between the election of Donald Trump and the inauguration day. The reason for the rally was the optimism surrounding all the economic growth that we were going to get as a result of tax cuts, deregulation, all this stuff that was going to happen.
Of course all this was also going to result in a tighter Federal Reserve because we were now going to have fiscal stimulus and so we weren't going to need as much monetary stimulus. Now remember at the time I argued that that was nonsense and of course so far I'm being vindicated because here we are were six months into the Trump presidency and nothing has happened.

Given the weakness in the US Dollar and the weak economic data, Gold should be moving up a lot more than it is. I still think that there's still a lot of overhang there's still a lot of short selling going on but I smell the mother of all short squeezes coming.

The Australian dollar (AUD) is very close to a two-year high it's at more than a one-year high as is the Canadian dollar (CAD) which was very strong on the week on the back of a rate increase by the Bank of Canada but the US dollar fell across the board, obviously foreign stocks better than US stocks given the tailwind that they have from appreciating currencies.
