This Investment Doubles if the Euro Implodes

The euro zone is facing major changes in 2012, and one very real threat is the possibility that one or more nations will exit the monetary union.

But before you say “good riddance,” the ripple effects will reach far and wide … and your money could be in danger — even if you think you don’t have any exposure to the euro.

Find out how to protect yourself — and the investment that could double in value from today’s levels — by watching today’s video.

Best wishes,

Kevin

Hi, this is Kevin Kerr for Uncommon Wisdom Daily.

Almost exactly a year ago, Estonia adopted the euro as its primary currency. And as we approach 2012, most people in this country regret that decision. The euro zone is plagued with various problems, and faces huge hurdles in trying to stay together and grow the single currency.

In my opinion, the dream of a united Europe — with one currency and borderless trade and commerce — was noble but unrealistic. Amid today’s instability, fear, poverty, high borrowing costs, weak currency and talk of a break-up, that is now painfully obvious.

The primary problem is that the cultures and history of the various EU members are vastly different. The idea that many of those barriers could or even should be broken down was misguided. What works in Greece, clearly doesn’t work in Milan or on Fleet Street.

The biggest losers are the small responsible countries, like Estonia, where I live. Our debt-to-GDP ratio is just 6.6%, but we’re tied to the fate of France, which has an 85% debt-to-GDP ratio.

I do not think the euro or the euro zone is going to disappear entirely. But it will face some drastic changes. Today I want to predict what those changes will be, and tell you how to protect yourself and profit from them.

First of all, I think the chance of some countries leaving the euro zone in early 2012 is about 70% to 75%, in line with many other analysts. The exit of one or more nations could cause an immediate run on the banks. Savers would rush to put their money into a core euro country, which would bring down the financial system of the departing country overnight. Companies and private households would not have access to loans. ATMs would dry up.

Fear and panic would cause social unrest and even riots. And don’t expect the government to come to the rescue, because it’ll be bankrupt.

This is not just a hypothetical situation. There is a growing consensus that Greece will have to exit the euro zone. And even some in France are discussing pulling out of the monetary union and returning to the franc. If that happened, the franc would depreciate by between 30% and 50% once it was reintroduced, which would cause the French government’s debts to explode even higher. This, in turn, would set off a hyperinflationary spiral.

Next, bankruptcies will multiply in the banks of Southern and Eastern Europe. And that would almost certainly bring about the downfall of the core northern EU countries, because they have lent their struggling neighbors huge sums of money over the years.

Ultimately, we’ll see exploding unemployment, surging prices and declining currency values, combined with widespread government defaults and isolation from international creditors and markets. I don’t think it’s a stretch to envision a socioeconomic nightmare, including rioting and martial law.

In this type of environment, the best safe harbor is gold. As investors rush into the precious metal, I wouldn’t be surprised to see gold prices double from their current levels.

In order to take advantage of the problems in Europe, you should consider adding gold to your portfolio, in the form of bullion bars, coins or numismatics. You can also buy options on gold futures, an ETF like the SPDR Gold Trust, or even some key mining stocks. In addition, you could bet against the euro by shorting the currency directly, or using an ETF like the ProShares UltraShort Euro, ticker symbol EUO.

As we ring in the New Year, the best gift you can give yourself is the ability to protect your wealth, and profit from the major changes that are sure to come.

For Uncommon Wisdom Daily, I’m Kevin Kerr, wishing you a safe, happy and healthy New Year.

Your thoughts on “This Investment Doubles if the Euro Implodes”

  1. Good Morning everyone

    Kevin is Smart
    and silver too

    thank you merry safe and happy new year

    pete

  2. You and Larry need to have a sit down. He says PM will implode and you say they’re going to the moon. What’s an investor to do? I’m more in your camp, that’s the logical choice.

    1. Read again John: Larry predicts much higher prices for gold, it’s just that there will be a correction along the way.

      1. Gary…Umm…What? Larry sees gold going between 1250 and 1450 in Jan. and a MINIMUM of 23 for silver. Now Kevin comes out and says he thinks gold could go to over 3000. Do you see a little difference of opinion here? And if you say well their time frames are just a little different then that makes it pretty easy for them doesn’t it? PM’s go down they’re right or go up they’re right. I can make the same predition. When you’re paying for a service you shouldn’t get these mixed messages, it just adds to the confusion.

  3. Kevin, you desperately need some rest–You are not looking well. I understand we are setting of the edge of
    one of the most critical money making opportunities of my life time and I am almost 70. As you say that
    this debacle was doomed for failure from the beginning, and as usual the government know it alls have
    given us an exceptional opportunity to profit as our global financial well being is on the verge of
    “A World of Hurt”.
    I am glad Kevin, Larry and Mike are around to guide us through this mess. Timing is everything and I believe
    you are all correct. One question, which came first the Chicken of the Egg?? Proper sequencing of attack
    will prove to be the most profitable and I believe through your information and prayer we are on the front
    line of some very exciting times.
    Be Blessed,

    Cliff
    PS get some sleep!!!

  4. Ditto. My perspective is that you are both right. Initially, were the Euro to collapse, the US$ would surge and gold would drop (based on past responses). This would would last a short period before the US$ showed its weakness and then PMs would take off. Is this how you (and Larry) see it happening?
    I assume that the DJI would collapse with the Euro, in which case wouldn’t shorting the DJI (SDOW) be as good a bet?
    Cheers
