    What radio stations are you broadcasting. I’tm looking for one that doesn’t need an app from an android.

    The reason Google is free is that they sell advertizing and they sell information about your interests to companies that use that data to target ads to you. Many think that’s not a bad trade-off. You’ll love Greece. Don’t miss a wonderful dinner at 10:00PM when the restaurants are packed.

    Subject: Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

    every American
    must read the the following;
    The facts.
    The truth.
    We have Morons running America.
    We have an Islamic in the White house.
    GOING. DO YOU??????
    Very interesting read.
    Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

    1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

    2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

    3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

    4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

    5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

    6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

    7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

    8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

    9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

    10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

    11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

    12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

    You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

    This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

    To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature

    It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

    a.. The U.S.Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years
    to get it right and it is broke.

    b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
    right and it is broke.

    c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938.You have had 71 years to get it right
    and it is broke.

    d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right;
    $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the
    poor” and they only want more.

    e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years
    to get it right and they are broke.

    f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970.You have had 39 years to get it right
    and it is broke.

    g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence
    on foreign oil.It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion
    a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
    and it is an abysmal failure.

    You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our
    throats while overspending our tax dollars.


    Folks, keep this circulating.It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.


    I know what’s wrong. We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
    We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
    In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey..And now Pakistan ……..previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

    Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks…

    AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.

    Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn’t it?

    99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

    I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did

      Government doesnt care about profit…because they use other people’s money.

        Roubini in your camp: “Nobody has gone to jail since the financial crisis. The banks, they do things that are illegal and at best they slap on them a fine. If some people end up in jail, maybe that will teach a lesson to somebody. Or somebody hanging in the streets.”

    • Bill Taylor says:

      Suppose that we had a flat tax, say 15% on purchases, except on food and R/X How much revenue would the goverment
      have to waste. The only way we will ever get out of this hole the gov has dug , is the flat tax, abolish the IRS,and Cooperation taxes. Watch our jobs come back to the US from
      foreign countries.

    • James says:

      Your a fool if think Wal Mart stands for anything but a huge doorway for Americans to give their hard earned money to China.

  4. Alfred Buonaguro says:


    Your show is always tops but your rant today on “Mugging” Stanley was priceless. It ought to be incorporated into Harvard Business School courses on markets. Keep up the good work. Al B

    • gary kaltbaum says:

      Unfortunately, their actions forces a rant like that…would rather be complimenting them on doing the right thing.

  5. Dennis says:

    Gary, I’m thiking things are going to get worse before they get better. With the Presidental Election this year and what’s going on in Europe. There maybe a dead cat bounce, but it won’t be long lived. were heading back to 2008. We have had a Jobless recovery since 2008 and realestate has been out of favor too.

    • gary kaltbaum says:

      Won’t argue…Europe, especially places like Span, Greece are horrid…better not hit here.

  6. John L says:

    Hi Gary,

    A year or so after Iceland was on the brink of complete collapse and bankruptcy, Reuters ran an article today that pointed to a great picture of a true recovering economy. Sure they imposed strong capital controls, raised taxes (I am not a proponent of this) and used some austerity measures, but they also did something no other country had the grapefruits to do. They let their BANKS GO UNDER!!!!! and they also brought charges against their Prime Minister in special court.

    They have virtually no unemployment and have a great move up in GDP. Wake up people this is how it is done.

    Bravo to Iceland. They are truly in a recovery mode. Here is the link to the article.–business.html

    I am almost certain of something. John Corzine is not looking at this island nation for asylum. LOL


  7. Fran says:

    Semis are one sector which you always mention. I use the ETF RYT to gauge the technology sector. Wou;d you please tell me if this is an okay match for what you call semis? Or do you have a better one?

    Been listening for about six years.

  8. John L. says:

    Gary, I am sure you were saying the same thing today. The “Rumor Mill” at it once again causing the markets to avoid a decent distribution day. I sat there in disbelief watching the S and P Mini futures contract and the Tick just explode up at precisely 15:30 EST. Volume up on Nasdaq 37% according to IBD. Small caps from what I know still got a hit today. Apple is strong like bull and from my figures, had that been down the Nasdaq would have been down another .5% at the low of the Day. I am sure you have the same question, how come they do not investigate this crap. With that being said, this invisible hand garbage is really interfering in the markets more now then I have noticed before. Waiting for the correction since all my indicators are completely topped out. The markets just keep touching the 9 day MA and bouncing off and It has been going on since Jan. Everytime they touch the 9 day the market goes into flight. The Russell closed below it today, so we will have to keep an eye on that divergence.

    Decliners/Advancers according to were just under 2/1.

    I am affraid that if they keep this crap up that the correction will over-correct for all the garbage that has been going on as of late.

  9. leroy loveland says:

    Through the Fed Resv, the banking cartel are being protected and highly rewarded for greedy and stupid loan practices. Your article is good. What can we do? The responsible people need to support and vote for Ron Paul.

  10. OPmoney says:

    C’MON!!!!!!!!!! $12,801.23 DOW close???? What??? THE BUCK TWENTY THREE and change is NOT gonna make it obvious!!!!

    WHEN is the SEC going to put a stop this???

    Really! Frickin Quant/algorithmic IDIOTS! Gimme a break!

  11. OPmoney says:

    Your “LEARN FROM THIS” comments are RIGHT on the MONEY! Risk capitol, START one store, one of something, one of anything ala CMG and GROW a business IS the American way, more like the non-entitlement American ideal of yesteryear. However, the only question today is; do you BUY CMG here thinking it’s going to $400.00? Do you sell CMG now and wait to see the correction, ref. see “Is Chipotle Overvalued? Let’s Compare It With Peers” :

  12. OPmoney says:

    Swaps in Euros for USD has Fed be all it can be : THE lender of LAST RESORT. WHY the Market is sooooo excited? SEE Dire Straits:

    “Money for nothin’ get your chicks for free”

    Now, WHEN (not if) the Euro tanks guess who’s left holding the BAG? RIGHT, the US taxpayers; it’s he price YOU pay, still pay for years to come, for all the sub-prime derivatives SOLD with a wink and a nod to those sods in the UK.

  13. says:

    Hey Gary,

    You mentioned you would be posting a chart of when to buy stocks. Sounded like it might have been a seasonal chart. Just wondering if you were still going to be sharing that info. Thanks!

  14. Mike Epperson says:

    If you will go to Sy Harding’s webb site he already has all of the “sell in May and go away” happenings calculated for you. It is really great reading. You may not have to do much research as he as already done it.

  15. OPmoney says:

    What? Still stuck in a range??? What happened to the printing of money theory taking it out of this range/over and above/back to new highs? Gimme a break, even Dennis Hynes claims the Market is simply “front-running the FED’s QE3″ – but so what? None of this has taken the Market anywhere but lower.

    New Normal is a “Humpty Dumpty” Market:

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
    All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
    Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

    I remain in CASH.

  16. John J says:


    This would help us give us a guidens in this market:

    William O’neil ( how to make money in stocks page 151)
    “If you are reading this book for the first time near the begining or middle of a bear market, DO NOT EXPECT THE PRESUME BUY PATTERNS TO WORK. Most of them will definitely be defective. You absolutely do not buy break outs during a bear market. Most of them will fail.
    The price patterns will be to deep, wide and loose. They will be third and forth satege bases; have wedging or loose, sloppy handles or show V FORMATIONS MOVING STRAIGHT UP FROM THE BOTTOM OF A BASE INTO NEW HIGHS…………”

  17. OPmoney says:

    Pulling up a chart of GMCR today; this one now exemplifies the Market I see going forward for all current/similar “leaders.” These stocks are over-extended and being drawn, or will be drawn in to its longer term trend line.

    I could have sworn Brian mention this one a couples times to put on a watch list/ “consider buy on pullback” when it was +100? Was this stock being overextended not a consideration back in September?

  18. OPmoney says:

    RE: what will take this Market out of the range it is stuck in? You write: “As far as catalyst…how about the trillions in leverage put out by our fed as well as now, europe…which is now following the fed into the abyss. At least europe states they are indeed unsing leverage…which means they are printing money.”

    Is it possible your “leaders” are now overextended as a result of all the “leverage” to date? Any more “printing” will just “pop” that bubble too? I do not recall the analyst that said MCD would lead the Market out of this mess a year ago, that stock has grown to the sky, but it only looks very lonely up there – a leader, with no followers.

    Unfortunate, but the “real” industry type stocks are 3X’s behind MCD’s stellar rise to stardom; so which is the true reflection of the Market, of an economy flooded with all this monetary easing going on? A 5-yr chart of CAT or MCD? Which will see $100sh 1st?? I tend to believe neither, at this time it is more likely $65-$75sh is nearer the trend-line of each.

  19. OPmoney says:

    PMI was “required” for all those low quality mortgages of the day and today? FUNNY, PMI insurance was just shut down in AZ for making new policies & taking in money all the while it is unable to pay it’s customers even at 50% rate of monies it owes. Just another PONZI scheme – many thanks to our government. So why are these people not going to JAIL?

  20. Greg Stawarz says:

    Rare “Zweig Breadth Thrust Reversal” triggered today. Signifies a reversal strong enough to propel the markets up another 20% over the next 12 months. Ideas?

    • Gary Kaltbaum says:

      Never heard of it…but just looked it up. They called one on August 16th which failed. I am not a big believer in these things…bullish or bearish…my favorite was the Hindenburg Omen which was supposed to kill the market in 2010…never happened. Just watch price and volume. If market wants to go up 20% in next year, we will see it. I hope it is right.

  21. gary k says:

    Laura…dont worry about conspiracies. Things can move up on light volume because a lack of sellers. But low volume moves are always suspect.

  22. gary kaltbaum says:

    Chris…the one thing that sticks out for me is the wild swings…impossible to play. 10% up in days…10% down in days…then 10% up in days…just no way to commit. I am in agreeance with just about everything you feel.

  23. chris says:

    Your show my favorite in spokane on 1230. U try your best and do a great job and dont pretent to know everything like phils gang or the other shows like tom obrien on 1230. With that being said u might be right about the low important last week. And U have a great point of just go with the trend. Tho the trend changes so fast in this volatility that by the time u figure it out it goes to another trend. Honestly I was hoping the dow jones would fall to 5,000. I mean this bull crap in europe is just a bandaide and here the banks lie all the time like bank of america. And I think they would be better to let the banks fail and all the other corporations on the long term. It not the end of the world if the dow goes to 5,000. Okay its a 65 percent drop. During the depression the dow dropped 94 percent from high to low. Japan dropped over 80 percent from high to low and there functioning still. I think america lies but the other countries are worse like europe japan and all those other countries. I moved my money into stable fund in 401k at dow 12,500. I dont know why nobody not talking about how having oil prices over 3.50 a gallon for around 4 months is not going to hurt earnings like it did in 2007. More energy cost more the companies have to lay off and more cut in there earnings on energy cost. With the defiecet unde barak crap obama going up three times as much as bush and bush acted like a democrap anyway. But he had a democrap controlled congress to influence. And during clinton years clinton had republican controlled congress and had more sympathy despite his sexual problems for the american people. I was hoping the euro go back to 120 versus the dollar and i got caught up and it a little late now i was skying high going long the dollar. And was doing well until europed smarted off with there banks are fine and there not. It just a lie. And i dont know why these damn investors believe them. Your right the market dont give a damn what we think. If u were on right side volatility 90 percent and could recondnize like for example the euro going up quick from131.60 area and got out at 132.10 than u could make a lot of money but i suck at that. And currencys are just as hard as stocks. U dont know when a stock might blow up in your face a high flying and miss earnings and down 50 percent before u can get out. And open up down after hours at 50 percent down. Currencys are just more leverage in margin. Mosty likely a currency not going to open down 50 percent but it could 5 percent. chris but i will say over all u do your best and it hard in these damn markets there so frustrating and stressful to get where u dont have to work and retire before 60 and fire your boss.

  24. Dan says:

    Great Show and Awesome Website. Thanks for your unbiased insights.
    Got a question about Gold and even Silver. It looks like both have been building base for 2 weeks, especially gold. Do you think it’s a good time to get in now? Given the fact that UK and perhaps ECB will be printing more money, gold seems to have a good breakout potential. Thanks.

  25. Mark says:

    Why the heck does the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame keep snubbing Rush?

  26. Mike Epperson says:

    What are you buying in the high yield field? as you talked about on today’s program?

  27. Patty says:

    Just saw you on fox news. I’ve been paying taxes since I was 16, and have had to take out loans in recent years just to pay my taxes…ridiculous. EVERYONE should pay the same rate, and there should not be loopholes for the rich. I’m tired of barely making it every month while watching the rich get richer through their connections and tax loopholes. I support Obama’s belief that the more affluent Americans should pay their fair share. I’m just going to take a wild guess…you fall into the more affluent category don’t you?!

    • gary k says:

      Actually, I am open to anything if they would do the right thing with the money. Unfortunately, they are all corrupt with our taxpayer dollars and to add to that…the next 8 years of our taxpayer dollars hhave alreay been spent…half of that because of this president.

      • Laura says:

        Then, we need to take back the control of the money supply from the Federal Reserve, if we are ever to have control over our Congress and our country financially again. For decades, the political elite and the ultra-rich corporate cronies, along wtih the ultra-rich world elitists, have been raking our money into their pockets. We can NOT trust the Federal Reserve. They have way too much power over the masses financially with all their bubbles and manipulations. I hope someday it’s not too late before the masses “get it”. Democratic operatives are trying to make it into a class warfare, but they fail to go for the mother load–the Federal Reserve.

        And, if there is any way possible, we need to make it illegal for politicians to take campaign contributions from corporations and special interest groups, and limit it to say $200 maximum from each American.

    • TJB says:

      Patty…please don’t tell me you’ve also fallen for this president’s emotional rehtoric and ridiculous accusations about the “rich” (which are false, by the way). The “rich” pay more than they’re “fair share” already. Go to the IRS website and look it up. In 2008, the top 1% of wage earners paid about 38% of ALL INCOME TAXES collected by the US. Meanwhile the bottom 50% (so, about half of the country) paid a mere 3% of all taxes. Now you tell me…who isn’t paying their “fair share”??? The truth hurts.

      As far as your claim of taking out loans to pay your income taxes…I don’t buy it. If you had a tax bill, you had income. There is no way you should have needed to take out a loan to pay your income taxes.

      As a disclaimer, I am a middle class “joe”. I’m not rich. If the rich had to pay more taxes, it wouldn’t affect me at all. However, I don’t believe in this liberal theory that just becasue there isn’t enough to go around anymore…the poeple who actually have money should just give it to people who don’t, becasue they can “afford to”. In absolutely no way is that “fair”.

    • Mike says:

      I don’t belive in using class envy for politicle gain, no matter what side you’re on.

  28. Bobby Castillo says:

    Another great call Gary!

    • Gary Kaltbaum says:

      Dude…dont blink…I trust nothing…

      my best call has been to be a spectator.

      • Bobby Castillo says:

        Don’t blink Indeed. I just find it amazing that the day before this rally began you mentioned on your show that there was to much bearishness and that a rally was likely, not certain, but likely. Long and behold, 2 day rally. Just like your call on silver, you mentioned “it looked like the left side of the Eiffel tower”, day after, it came crashing down. I’m sure there are many other great predictions you’ve made, as I’ve heard you mention them on your show. A friend of mine who went on to be a stockbroker told me about your book, which I read and really enjoyed. In reading your book, I found out about your show, and I have been listening every single weekday morning, ever since. I find your knowledge of the markets very inspiring. I’m 25 years old and have been following the markets for only 4 years, but I hope to one day possess the knowledge/discipline that you have when in comes to investing. I just put in an order for How to Make money in Stocks by William O’Neil, and I will be making my way down the list of books you have listed on your “great books” tab. I’m also putting your CD-Rom course on my Christmas wish list, because I have to get a copy of that. Off the topic here, but my father was a professional electrician for 30+ years (way differesnt professions), and while I was growing up he tried to teach me as much about the profession as I was willing to learn. Eventually, he was diagnosed with diabetes and his health began to deteriate. He no longer has the ability to teach me the things he once was able to. I here you talk about your kid/kids often on the show, and if I’m not mistaken you have a boy who is in his early 20′s. I just wanted to say, Kaultbaum Jr., (I’m sure you already are) take as much knowledge as you possibly can from your father, it truly is vaulable. I have a list of people that I just have to hear when it comes to the market names like, Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Jim Rogers, Ira Epstein, Max Keiser, etc….I’m glad to have added GaryK to that list. I’ll be stopping by soon.

    • Mike says:

      Put up two line charts of IWM. Make first one weekly and take it back to October 2009. Make second one Monthly and take it back just past 2007 top.
      Put weekly on left, put monthly on right. Take time to look at this weekly double bottom vs the one last summer. Take time to look at how this top on weekly is much larger than the one before last May. Then realize that last year took 4 months to confirm.

      Not sure but I think I found something here and we needed the Double bottom with higer low over S&P 1150 before you could see this.

      • Laura says:

        IWM is getting overbought, imho. Can someone please explain to me how the prices go UP on REALLY LOW VOLUME? I thought the markets were about supply and demand of stocks. Doesn’t appear so. If Wall Street raises prices, & I know Market Makers can do this legally, does that mean they are hoping to draw small investors in, so they can slam it down later on?? All our baby boomer friends don’t trust the Wall Street scene anymore.

  29. Bryan says:

    Love your track record on equities, Gary, and you’ve helped me a lot. However, the cash you’re holding has a negative real return and also depreciated 15% to gold in the past 10 weeks. I can understand not wanting the “gold bug” association, but it rallied $300 last time you called a double top (june 27), and now you’re looking for another top? I hope you can clarify if this is purely a technical call, and if so, maybe you should refer to it as a “pullback”. But if you see a fundamental reason for an intermediate or long term top, on what basis? Do you agree w/Helicopter Ben on gold not being a currency?

    • gary k says:

      You are forgetting my flexibility…I thought in May it had topped but said if it broke to new highs, it would be negated…

      as far as my calls…technical calls…

  30. Laura says:

    Agree on Obummer’s new pick and your thoughts about him. But, what else can we expect for the most part from the Harvard cronies?

  31. Eric K in AZ says:

    Gary, Just wanted to let you know that I echo your sentiments regarding our inept government. We should all march straightway to our nation’s capital and run them out of town, like they did when the West was wild. Please continue to host an exemplary radio show from which I’ve learned a great deal since listening.

    Well wishes,

      It is easy to sit on the sidelines and say they are bums. Let’s see who has the courage to stand up to Grandma and say, “This program is unsustainable (medicare.)” My parents go to the doctor for a diversion. It’s cheaper than a movie!! They can have all the tests they want in a quest for “perfect health.” It won’t help (they are in their 80s.) I believe we pay about 360 billion a month on this program (but it varies based on usage.) At least Social Security is a predictable monthly expense. I bet you could shave a cool 100 billion a month off this colossus–now we’re talkin’ real deficit reduction. Any volunteers to run on that platform? … [crickets chirping.]

      • gary kaltbaum says:


        With all due respect, it ISN’T easy to give crappy opinions of our politicians. It is the last thing I want to do. But they have made it easy. And frankly, anyone that has been courageous enough to talk about this coming trainwreck, has been labeled as extreme and uncaring. Only when it really blows up, will they then do something about it.

        Remember, many told the politicians of the impending blow-up of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and all the other criminal enterprises…and nothing got done until all heck broke loose.

      • wyhydro says:


        One day the game will be over. People like GaryK and Rick Santelli expose our problems and they are then labeled by the media. I have followed GaryK for 10 years, he always speaks the truth, even when it hurts. We need average citizens to speak out more, you don’t need a radio or TV show to speak out. This is still America, Obama was elected President, not KING.

      Gary, this website is a gem!! How wonderful to get your ideas on the market throughout the day. To those who have listened to your radio show over the years, this is a welcomed addition.

    Hi Gary. I have been listening to you for about 10 years now, and find your commentary very worthwhile and credible. Thanks for all you do, as I think you truly have your listener’s best interests at heart, both financially and otherwise. Keep up the political commentary, even though the self appointed PC police will certainly condemn you for it.

    Gary: Love your new Web Site.
    On several occasions you mentioned that I do not tell you about my RIX Strategy. I’m sure you know that I can’t tell you the formula or the components. But I will say this. Each day my mathematical formula converts the action of the NYSE and NASDAQ into numbers that represent the trend. If the markets continue up these numbers will increase and visa versa. These numbers tell me precisely when the trend of these markets turn up and turn down. I developed this Strategy in 1964 and tested it for 7 years before I was sure it worked. And it has identfied every intermediate change in the trend since then. It does not tell me how long a trend will last, but 4 out of 5 up moves have resulted in positive returns. Not bad, I guess. Jim

    Great new website Gary. I’ve listened to your show since summer 2008 and studied the books you’ve recommended (as well as yours) and as a result, saved my butt during the 08 crash. As a result, I have a much better understanding on how technical analysis and the markets work. Thanks for all you do.

  40. Laura says:

    Gary, the speed trading computers took my money again! I hate this stock market. The values of stocks seemingly have nothing to do with price movement, and apparently the GS speed trading software is even raking money off the human being hedge fund traders. I’m sick of all this! I don’t know if it’s true, but it sure feels like all these Wall Street gangsters are nickel & diming our portfolios to death! Ok. I’m done venting. Sorry!

    Buddy Lee says:

    “I enjoy listening to your program and appreciate your honesty. With so many pundits available, it is nice to hear one who doesn’t have an agenda. If the average secular bear market lasts for 16-17 years, that tells me Barack Obama will be re-elected. That would make the end of his second term (2016) coincide with the beginning of the next bull. What do you think about my hypothisis?”

    • gary k says:

      My persoanl opinion is that if economy and employment stay the way they are, this President has no chance for re-election. He won because of independants but also he won because he was able to bring out the Bush-haters and the excitement as he was a new entity. He has lost the independants for good. And I think the excitement for him as well as the Bush-haters are gone…meaning many who came out to vote, will not. But there are 15 months left…anything could happen.

  42. Tom says:

    I’ve been addicted to Gary’s radio show since 2004. I consider it part of my daily routine. Even if I get home at late, I just have to listen to the show.

    I also purchased Gary’s book.

    So glad I protected my capital by going to all cash a few weeks ago ………

  43. Laura says:

    Your analysis to be cautious is spot on! I am wary of CNBC using the Bernanke meeting as an excuse to have such a “strong rally”, and so, I’m in your camp, not that the market can’t go higher, but if we look at the Big Cap Tech names, they really haven’t had a major drop like the rest of the market, and I think we need a real wash-out for an authentic strong rally. I hate to say it, but the thing I see as having a negative for the Street is the political campaigning going on. Anything that threatens Wall Street’s umbilical cord to the WHouse & Congress and the “status quo” would send this market into a tailspin. I expect this to happen this fall. Political momentum is building in unexpected ways. The desire to have power is so strong on Wall Street, the Big Banks, and the Federal Reserve that I fear what they will do. Remember how they pushed the button to threaten Congress with the DOW down 700 points the day after Congress voted against the Banking Bailout? They already use high speed trading programs against the little guy to scare him out of shares. How long will it be before the Baby Boomers trading in their accounts get fed up with this?? Anyway, thanks for your words of caution. That’s important.

    • Gary K says:

      I think everyone is fed up.

      I do not blame CNBC touting the Bernanke meeting this week as long as they explain that markets could be hit if he does nothing. Frankly, they could be hit if he does. It’s a mess out there when you have to wait on one man’s thoughts…one man who has been wrong most of the time.

  44. Puru Kumar says:

    Hi Gary, I listen to you on KFNN 1510 in Phoenix metro area. As a result I am a well informed and empowered investor. Your new web site looks great and it will help me further. Thank you for educating a generation of investors who wants to live a comfortable life and be contributing part of society.

    Keep up the great work… Puru

  45. Dodie says:

    Absolutely love the modern look. I loved this content. Thanks for the marvelous blog post.

  46. Kurt S. says:

    Gary Kaltbaum is the single best financial talk show host in America. It is hard for me to listen to other business radio shows because I all I hear their is their “Stay invested at any cost” agenda. Gary is intellectually honest and can be taken at his word.

  47. John L. says:


    Though we never met personally, I was first introduced to you while living in the Clearwater area during the DotBomb era. At your recommendation on your program, I studied William Oniel and Stan Weinstein over and over for years. I do not live in the listening area since I have moved to Texas, but I do stream your show at least once or twice a week. I attribute my ability to time the market to you and your radio program. I went to cash the last week of May 2011 and influenced one young man I work with do the same. Now he just smiles at me, every morning when he checks the futures. He now understands the importance of Volume and Price action.

    Your influence over the years regarding the markets has been instrumental in my studies of equities and world markets and I pass this on as often as I can. With that being said, I never fail to mention who lit the fire and guided me over the years. Thank you so much for your show and your insight during the last ten years.

    P.S. This young man I mentioned above had his dad go to cash three weeks ago and saved him a good deal of money. Again, Thank you!

  48. Fred Rosa says:

    Hi Gary,
    I’ve listen to you on the radio for many years, sold my income and growth stocks recently. Thank you for getting me out of harms way. Bought a precious metal ETF (GLTR) in October of last year and has done very well for me. Do you think I should stay in GLTR with what’s going on Washingtion D.C. and Euorpe.

      There is a chance the gold/silver complex topped yesterday for a while. Gold looks to have climaxed in the past couple of days.

  49. william hanks says:

I can’ thank you enough.I will continue to listen faithfully every evening .. Thanks for all your work an comments it is helping me learn allot.

    Thanks your friend William…..

  50. web design says:

    Thank you, I have recently been looking for info about this subject for ages and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure about the source?

  51. Steve says:

    Love the new website!

  52. Jose says:

    Gary; thanks for being so honest and calling the market as you see it. I’ve been listening to you for the last 10 years and reading your commentary on the web, but the radio show in South Florida is no longer aired. You have saved me lots of money and have helped me walk through the maze of Wall Street and the so many pundants who, as you always state, are wrong 99% of the time. It is amazing how these pundants make wrong calls all the time and are still on TV, shame on them, the networks that allow this nonsense and the retail investors who follow such wrong calls. Also wanted to admire you for being so brave and speaking out about the “Washington Cult”; it is a shame the way this great nation is treated by the shameless and crook politicians who only look out for themselves and put us deeper into the hole; they must all be fired and prosecuted for destroying our “American Dream”. You are the best and keep up the good work!

  53. Jason says:

    Gary Your honest assessments of the market have tremendously helped made me a more disciplined investor. Your compassion towards your radio listeners are unmatched by any other investment radio program out there in my opinion. You truly do take the time to educate your listeners with sound investment strategy in bull and bear markets to protect their capital. Your also spot on with your assessments in what is wrong in Washington D.C. and do a fine job explaining how crony politics affect an individuals ability to obtain wealth and prosperity. I hope you stay around for some time to come. America needs more people like you that are great teachers for political awareness and navigation to reaching prosperity. Thank You.

  54. Cary says:

    You can spend a lot of money with other services..WHY? Gary provides an overview of the market in an informative, unbiased, view. Learn to follow the leaders and understand the direction of the market. And Study. Thanks for a wonderful show and website.

  55. James-Neil says:

    Hi Gary, I am a long listener since about 1998. Through the years, I have learned sooooooo much from you and Brian….Thanks. It yet took a lot of additional study on my part…sometimes 10 to 15 hours a day, 7 days a week for months and months, years and years. I am actually very good at this now I am glad to say. Thanks again to you and Brian and God Bless you and you family.


  56. Bryan says:

    Thanks Gary for publishing your insights. It is really hard to get good, trustworthy financial commentary. I haven’t found anyone else who combines macro and technical analysis to predict markets as well as you. The “paid to play” crowd and the “establishment” are blind to reality. I moved last year from Phoenix to East Texas and no longer get your radio show, so this new website will greatly help me!

    One suggestion is to expand your comments on the gold rally. Thanks to its safe haven currency status and correlation to global money supply, it has been defying gravity. Therefore, I am surprised you haven’t strongly urged people to protect themselves via gold (GLD)? In my opinion, it will continue to defy technical analysis until governments start acting like adults. Given your political views, I’m sure you would agree that things will need to get much worse to restore fiscal / monetary sanity.

    • Gary K says:

      How about this?

      I think gold climaxed in the past couple of days with it now looking like the climax in silver from back in April.

    • Michael says:

      Never expect the market to “defy gravity” and “defy technical analysis” It is best to have discipline. Recognizing climax tops using technical analysis always end the way GLD is coming down.

  57. Prasad says:

    Gary you are the best. I used to listen to you in Princeton. I left the US to start my own business in India in 2005. I still listen to your program. Whenever I see crazy movements in stocks I download your program and listen. I know to the date how you called the top in silver. Similarly in late 2007 and 2008. When you said things don’t look good in 2010 – I sold a bunch of stocks in India. Within 3 days all those stocks went down. Other people just say things. You are a doer and an achiever. May God keep you good forever and help share your wisdom to all those who can listen to such a voice of reason.

  58. Erik Wells says:

    Thanks for all the hardwork and insight. You have SAVED me from many mis-steps and my “buck-oh’s” thank you for that!
