2013 FORECASTS PERFORMANCE
1.Weak Oil Prices
Q1 2013 but Higher Oil Prices H2 2013 i.e. Summer/Fall Rally
[Weak Q1 low April/modest Summer Rally-Good]
caps (DJIA) will outperform small caps. They should also
outperform Nasdaq for much of H2 2013. [Wrong]
AVOID Germany & Australia; Buy Canada H2 2013.
[Germany wrong/Australia underperformed/Canada V up H2-Good]
will be largely seasonal (Down Q2 and Up Q4). Silver is at
great downside risk especially Q2 2013, and likely to under
perform in 2013. Copper is positive and a buy H1
2013. [Gold down Q2/weak Q4- 1/2 right/ Silver collapsed- Bulls
Eye!/Copper bottom Q2- then modestly positive-Fair]
International companies benefit from
cheap euro and flight to safety (in euroland).
Note: The need for Euro Hedges recommended 1.33
and recommended unwind 1.23.
will be mixed in 2012, but mostly a buy for 2013.
Note: Buy 1.23 OB Sell
Copper – 2012 Target $4 OB
Reached 3.98 in February.
Rebuy in H2 2012!
Silver by March/April- Potential bottom Target well below
and lackluster industrial demand Ideally
We issued a sell on a $37.20 on February 29th!!
will be lower later this year before US Presidential
elections i.e. more often below $100 than above.
We reached our P2 Target of $78 June 28, 2012!
Sell Markets June 30/July 1 and
July 21/22 - A work in progress but so far, so VERY good.
Own Silver until March/April
2011. Then Sell April 25 & April 29 at 49.42-- Bulls
Sell Insurance Stocks before
March (and Markets). Japan disaster on target (but
not localized) yet global markets did not drop as much as
Sell in May (May 2 & May
10) and then go away. Beautiful top!
China is "going down" at least
until early September- this will also strongly effect
Winter 2010 - ~ Jan 15 Solar
Eclipse will be the top of 2010. Yes & No.
1/19/2010 DJIA 10725 into
mid Feb it fell to test 10,000 but then rallied
thereafter well above 10725.
Spring 2010 -April 22-April 30

drop strongly post the July Eclipse- Wrong
Our Summer 2009 forecast- Major
Chinese Market Correction Post July 22nd Solar Eclipse -
Yes Bear Market 20%+ correction.
Our Spring 2009 forecast: Buy
Silver in May - Silver ended May with its
biggest monthly gain in 22 years!
Our Winter 2009 forecast:
The US Dollar will drop to Fair Value .81-.80- Spot on.
Our Summer forecasts: Sell oil
147 to 76, Gold from 990 to less than 832, buy the US$ to
$85 was perfect to within one day!
Our Fall forecasts buy gold
September 12, Buy Dow 8000, Sell/Reverse 9600,
buy 8500 and sell 9000 gave us 3000 Dow points in
Our first MAJOR forecast for
2008 was that Gold would break out to all times highs (above
$850) on January 2, 2008. We were spot on to the DAY!
Our next major recommendation was to sell Oil circa $100 and
to short the XOI at 1550 [>20% ROI in less than 1 month].
We recommended covering our January 2 shorts January 21 &
22, and go long Tuesday 8.07am 13 minutes before the "surprise" Ben interest rate drop
rally, covered by end of day and then go long again
next day at 9am! for an incredible 3 part trade.
Profitably forecast the largest weekly drop in March of the
CRB index (gold, silver. Oil, Wheat etc) in 50 years!
2007 had more than its share of accurate forecasts: Our major
forecast was the 2007 US Real Estate Crisis. US Dollar
Dropping below .80 in September along with our major play Gold and
Silver was well timed all year: Q1 Gold & Silver Rally, Sell
$722 then buy again a rally gold bottom circa August 22 past
$700; Silver bottom August 22 $11.51 then major rally, $800
gold to the day (October 31). Additionally, we forecast quite
accurately much of the recent stock market turmoil including such astrologically timed days as the August 28th
Dow 280 point drop, September 7th Dow's 249 point drop and
October 19 366 point drop.
Going forward, it is appropriate to change our performance
tracking as we are no longer making public most of the forecasting
work we provide to money managers, hedge funds and our
institutional clients, e.g. the Fed Move on interest rates
August/September the day after Ben was hired.
Just as many investors may be upset about not selling more NASDAQ
stocks last March,
next year they are likely to be upset about NOT having bought more
quality Nasdaq stocks this March. In April, U.S. stocks finished their best month in almost a
decade: Nasdaq gained 15 percent, the Wilshire 5000 index rose 8.1%,
the S&P 500 rose 7.7% and the Dow 8.7%.
Shortly after 911, we wrote: FALL CLEARANCE STOCK MARKET SALE:

US economic slowdown and secular US$ weakening. 1Q

IHITF comes home
IBM favorite DJIA stock returned a positive 42% in 2001!
Bond Yield rallies reversal second half of year into 2002
[Second half of the year forecast not valid]
2001 UIT reached 28% January 29, 2001. [34% ROI locked in

1998 January UIT up 23% by May 14, 1998 & 31% one year,
140% 2 years* after expenses.
1999 January UIT up 30% by April 28, 1999** after expenses;
up 52% 3/7/2000.
2000 January UIT results up 13% 3/7/2000 after expenses. Then
cashed out = 17%.
2001 January UIT up 28% January 29; locked in..
* 134% 12/28/99 rollover, but 140% at close of 2
year period 12/31/99.

TEN TOP 2000 FORECASTS
2000 UIT up 17%.
IBM, BA, DISNEY, GM and JNJ vs Dow Dogs
BUY ECU/SELL US$ from 104 onto .95 OB and ECU 1.12+ [ECU
fall exceded .95, reversal forecast followed with buys in
May .88 to .92. May 19th bottom was timed to the day]
Sell US Bonds to 6.80, then accumulate to 6.50 OB
[Reached 6.75 on first run]
IHITF comes home [First double 3/3 from $.53 to $1.23 as
of 3/7. Second double forecast did not materialize ].
DJIA target 7001.67 extended till May; avoiding
Technology stocks from after January effect is over until
after the Saturn/Uranus pass. [DJIA broke the important
10,000 floor, but blood forecast showed up in Nasdaq only,
not as much in the DJIA.]
Holland and Canada favorite 2000 countries [Canada was
number one, and Netherlands in top 5]
Gold rallies above $350 [2/4 Gold exceeds P1 to 314, but
fully rally did not materialize.]
January 21 is the first of our three key dates in 2000.
[One week after DJIA high, FEAR first entered into the
investor Zeitgeist THAT day.] May 5 (3-5) and October dates
showed market rollercoasters.
May 2000 is the ring pass not for momentum/value
investing. [Yes correct, in May investors finally became
fearful after a 40% Nasdaq drop]
TOP 10 1999 FORECASTS
1999 UIT up 30% (After expenses) by April**
Euro decline versus US dollar (Exceded P2 target of 102.40)
Oil dramatic recovery (From $10 to $25+)
Japan drop from May (~17,000) on [First dropped to 16,000
then rose to 18,000+, then trading back and forth below 17,000
before rising again. Not a trading loss, but still a wrong
Gold mid-year/Fall rally [Initially, problematic as Gold
broke 20 year lows. However, our XAU marker of 60 soared past 90
[up 50%] and Gold reached our target price of $325 by October.]
Buy US bonds to 4.90 and Sell to 6.40. [Perfect buy and sell]
7001.67 December 31 trading target: under 1% target, BUT
First quarter top broad market/Nasdaq second qtr [Wrong
here, although the Internet sector which was the primary target
of our shorting did peak in April].
Summer collapse of Tech stocks [Phase one Internet stocks
down 40%; Phase 2 Saturn/Uranus midJuly perfect to the day
with the Nasdaq top July 16, although this did not hold as we
expected. Phase 3 November fundamentally right with
Microsoft to the day, otherwise Nasdaq went to new records so a
mixed call- 2 out of 3.]
July 1 and November 5 Market pivots [July 1 was the day after
the Fed reversed course and raised interest rates and days
before Rubin and Mr Yen's resignations. November 5 the day of
the Key Microsoft ruling. Our earlier two 1999 pivot days
forecast were highly significant: one a monthly top, the second
the start of the Yugoslavian War.]
TOP 10 1998
1998 UIT UP 31% one year; 2 year performance

direction due to Fed intervention)
