How to Go Rogue and Liberate Your I.R.A. from the U.S. Monetary System

Go to school.  Get a job.  Open up a 401K or I.R.A.  Fill your retirement account with mutual funds and stocks and bonds.  Better yet, government treasury bonds.  That’s the story the government, the public school system, and the mainstream media have been spinning for decades.

Ask anyone who turned retirement age around 2008 how well that plan worked out for them…

Retirement accounts plunged between 14% and 40% that year, depending on the types of holdings.  Leaving anyone forced to live off their retirement funds fighting for scraps – after working their entire lives to build up their savings.

Now, the government wants to “help” with Obama’s new myRA plan.  Knowing what you know about government, do you think following their strategy will have you rolling in riches?

In order to acquire the lifestyle you crave, it takes thinking differently, going in your own direction, and discovering an entire world of opportunities.  In other words - Going Rogue.  Not just buying more of the same U.S. based stocks and bonds.

Even gold and silver are too mainstream, and the central banks regularly manipulates their value in order to line their own pockets.

Your I.R.A. is a powerful tool.  By allowing you to defer taxes, it allows for compounding growth.  Provided you aren’t stuck holding a number of undervalued, depreciating assets.  Especially ones that are tied to the U.S. dollar whose entire future is at stake.

Unfortunately, with a conventional I.R.A. approximately 99% of the world’s investment opportunities aren’t available.  You’re stuck with overvalued, volatile, manipulation filled stocks.  Or mutual funds, which make a decent return when the market it doing great…  However, fall apart quickly when the market stops.

Just by moving your I.R.A. offshore however, an entire world of prospects opens up.  An opportunity to hold precious and strategic metals in your retirement account…  And a host of other investment ventures not available to most U.S. citizens.

Step 1 – Create an offshore corporation

Building a legitimate business is the key step in this strategy.  In addition, by building that business offshore, you gain benefits like better privacy, more flexibility, and less regulation.  It’s not nearly as difficult as it sounds.  Of course, you’ll need competent legal advice…  In the jurisdiction of your choice.  However, most times you won’t even need to visit the country of origin.

A secondary step is opening a bank account in the name of the LLC or corporation.  This can sometimes be a little more difficult, but with the right help doesn’t take long.


Step 2 – Open a Self Directed I.R.A.

In order for this strategy to work, you need a self-directed I.R.A.  One where you have full control over management.  And can choose what the I.R.A. invests in.

You’ll need to find an administrator who’s well versed in offshore arrangements like this.  Not many are, but they do exist.


Step 3 – Have your I.R.A. invest in the LLC or offshore corporation you created in step 1.

Most people don’t know this, but your I.R.A. can make certain foreign investments.  One of these is a private offshore corporation.  Your I.R.A. needs to buy stocks in this firm.

Now, just like any other type of investment, your I.R.A. benefits from all of income generating activities of your company.

Your offshore corporation, depending on the jurisdiction, will have limitless business opportunities to explore.  Many more than you can personally as a U.S. citizen.  And certainly more than you are allowed to take advantage of directly in your I.R.A.

By investing in a company you control, an entire world of profits opens…  Including owning precious or strategic metals.  This is traditionally impossible, or at least extremely limited, in your I.R.A.

Obviously, this article barely scratched the surface of this little known and underutilized strategy.  But when you have all the details, it’s a powerful tool for compound growth towards your retirement.

The U.S. financial system is in peril.  The path they are laying out to follow puts your future wealth at risk.  The traditional model of going to school, getting a job, and saving for retirement is dead.

The people who succeed, and live the lifestyle of their dreams, are the ones that step away from the herd, investigate all options available, and chart their own course.  The ones who go rogue.

An offshore I.R.A., when managed correctly, opens you up to global opportunities most people never dream about.  Download your free guide now.

How the Ukraine Crisis is Affecting Precious and Rare Metals Prospects

Ukraine CrisisPrecious metals have always been strong during times of economic uncertainty.  And economic uncertainty reigns strong during crisis’s like we are seeing in the Ukraine.

As we have talked about in previous articles, rare strategic metals have many of the same safe haven properties as precious metals.  But the also have the added advantage of being necessary for technological and military applications.

The violent uprising in the Ukraine is already having an effect on precious metal prices.  According to, in an article titled Precious Metals Shine as Ukraine Crisis Deepens:

Precious metals have found their feet following yesterday’s sharp sell-off. The deteriorating situation in Ukraine continues to lend buoyancy to safe-haven assets, although the stronger dollar is limiting the upside for some buck-denominated assets, including gold.

Gold and Silver are both seeing increased prices with silver shooting to $21.00 and Gold climbing above $1330.

We see precious metals price growth as a strong indicator for powerful growth in rare strategic metals, adding one more reason you should strongly consider adding rare metals to your portfolio.

An Introduction to Tantalum’s Use in Capacitors

Tantalum being mined 2Take a moment and think about everything you do on a daily basis… And the tools you use to do it.

Think about it…

You talk on the phone, work on your computer, drive your car…

Maybe you run to your fridge, or turn on the air conditioning, or watch TV…

What tools do you do on your job?

How many of those tools and tasks use electronics?  And how many of those electronics contain a circuit board?

I’ll give you a hit to the second question…  Its all of them.

And almost everyone of those contains a capacitor.  And most of those capacitors use Tantulum as a critical component.

According to Tantalum Capacitors 101, an article appearing in Tantalum Investing News:

A capacitor functions much like a battery in that it stores and charges electrical energy. It is composed of two conductive plates separated by a non-conductive substance called a dielectric. One plate is positively charged (the anode) and the other is negatively charged (the cathode). The dielectric is necessary to keep the opposing charges separate.

Tantalum is the most common dielectric in use today.

You can learn more about how capacitors function, and why Tantalum is so important (and shows such great future demand) by reading their entire article here.


Swissmetal Inc. offer clients three baskets containing Tantalum: The Key IndustriesConstruction & Engineering and Defense & Aviation, which makes it now accessible for private investors to purchase and profit from the increase in demand  over the years to come.

The History of Precious and Rare Metals as an Asset Protection Strategy

metals1In the course of American history since the Great Depression, there have been ups and downs in the stock market and the in the economy—with the most recent tribulation being the housing and financial crises in 2008. This sent major banks and financial institutions reeling, and necessitating the need for a taxpayer funded industry bailout. It is not surprising that the average investor today is wary, with their finger precariously positioned over the eject button. How can you protect the portfolio of assets you have worked your whole life to accumulate? How can you hedge against future earthquakes and aftershocks in today’s volatile global economy and adopt an asset protection strategy that will protect you and your family for the years ahead?

Turning To Precious Metals

Many investors have, for a long time, turned to gold and silver, and to a lesser extent platinum, to protect their interests against the inflation of paper currency. At one time in the US, and elsewhere, paper currency was backed by a reserve of gold bullion, and could be redeemed for gold or silver on demand. But after the market crash and the resulting depressions of the 1930’s FDR, fearing a run on banks recalled all gold bullion and certificates into the treasury in 1933. Here, the government could have the reserve necessary to start printing paper money that would fund the pubic works projects that would get America back on its feet.  Private Citizens were no longer allowed to own gold bullion beyond a hundred dollars— while the government horded this precious metal in Ft. Knox and other government vaults across the US, as a basis for the printing of paper money that was to follow.

Governments have known for a long time that one way to stave off the effects of a recession is to increase the money supply. In 1934, one year after gold was recalled; congress raised the conversion rate from $20/ounce to $35/ounce, increasing the bottom line of the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet by 70%, enabling them to put even more paper money into circulation. Inflation continued until 1970 where Richard Nixon took us off the gold standard completely and announced the US government would no longer covert dollars to gold bullion—knowing there was not enough gold in the world to back up all the paper money that had been printed up to that time. Then in 1974 Ford signed a bill that permitted Americans to own gold bullion once again. Ever since then precious metals, most notably gold and silver, have been in demand as a solid piece of any investment portfolio.

Just recently a huge spike in demand for silver, fueled by the electronics industry, has renewed interest in precious metals as not only a hedge against inflation and asset protection strategy, but as a sound investment in and of themselves. As an asset protection strategy, the acquisition of precious and industrial metals is unrivaled in today’s tumultuous global economy.

Investments in precious metals are liquid assets and a valuable asset protection strategy with intrinsic and inherent value in and of themselves, and have the following features:

  • Real intrinsic value
  • Inflation proof
  • Investment insurance
  • Easily bought and sold and stored (liquid)
  • Responds to global markets
  • Adds diversity to any portfolio

There are many choices to consider in the lineup, beyond gold and silver that have real intrinsic value in today’s high tech, industrial, manufacturing, electronics and defense industries. In addition to gold and silver, chromium, gallium, tungsten, indium are just a few of the precious industrial metals that have real applications and value in today’s marketplace.
