Consequences of bailouts being felt

A lot of people are being ruined. Any pension plans, endowments, etc., are suffering because they invest for the futures and are finding that their situation has gotten worse. We are doing this at the expense of people who save and invest. We are doing it to bail out the people who borrowed huge amounts of money. The consequences are already being felt.

Turmoil in markets cause US Dollar to get stronger

The US dollar is partially gaining strength because there is turmoil in the markets; people are worried about the Middle East, Russia, and when people are worried, they quickly resort to the US dollar to make payments. The US dollar is not safe haven anymore, but people don't understand that. 

As long as there is turmoil in the world, the dollar will go higher and higher, and this will hurt many countries and economies. And my plan is when the dollar goes higher and higher, I will sell the US dollar.

Oil and commodities still in long term bull market according to Jim Rogers

We are going to have a bit more correction in crude oil prices and some commodities. I hope to buy some commodities when this correction goes far enough. The world is running out of oil in most countries, and the bull market in crude oil is still not over in my view. When crude oil goes down further, I would rather buy the commodity than sell.

Jim Rogers on Gold October 2014

I have not been buying gold for a long time. I hope that I may get another chance to buy gold some time this year or next. If gold prices drop below $1,000/ounce, I hope to buy a lot more gold. Meanwhile, I have not bought nor sold gold though I have hedged some of my gold.
