Glencore Just Put These High-Profit Trades on Our Menu

5 | By Shah Gilani

Thanks to the connections I made during my days as a trader and hedge-fund manager, I’ve enjoyed meals at some of the world’s finest restaurants.

Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed this immensely.

But I’m also smart enough to know that there are times when simple fare is the best fare.

Today I’m going to show you seven different ways to cash in on the looming “Glencore Moment.”

And I’m going to do so by applying some semi-sophisticated trading strategies to some of the simplest fare in today’s markets – exchange-traded funds.

But don’t let that simplicity serve as a turnoff.

The profits you’ll pull down will be as zesty as any you’ll achieve anywhere – especially given the substantially reduced levels of risk posed by my ETF strategies.

And if you do as I say, you’ll be writing to me to relate your easily financed haute cuisine forays.

Let’s take a look…

Thanks to Glencore, That “Ticking” Sound You Hear Is the World Stock Market

It’s the biggest commodities-trading player on Earth.

And it’s in big trouble.

I’m speaking, of course, about Glencore PLC.

Its near-term prospects are bleak.

And thanks to its size and market influence, the ripple effects of any problems will be widespread.

For instance, if the company can’t pare its debt load fast enough, if it can’t sell assets to raise cash fast enough, if ratings agencies knock its thin investment grade rating down to junk, if commodities prices keep falling, Glencore could implode – violently.

The disruption caused by a Glencore meltdown would be global: The company’s implosion would affect commodities markets, debt markets, derivatives markets, emerging markets and, of course, U.S. and global stock markets.

As someone who’s closely watched the company for many years (I even wrote the story of Glencore’s infamous founder for Forbes magazine several years back), I’m as well positioned as anyone to tell you what’s really happening.

Here’s the truth about how close the company is to the edge of the cliff, how markets would be affected by a Glencore “credit event,” the signals that will tell you a crash is imminent – and how to protect yourself and profit from this company’s extreme difficulties.

Let’s start with the “players” who set these potentially calamitous events in motion…

Could This “Rocktober” Rally Bring the Market to New Highs?

Investors need to keep one eye open during the recent market rally, Shah warned viewers during his latest Fox Business appearance. With the economy slipping backward and disappointing numbers floating in, Shah believes we could be approaching “a very precarious situation” that will be keeping investors on their toes through the rest of 2015.

Will the markets hit 18,000? Or will we see a correction that could send the markets tumbling to new lows?

Shah helps soothe skittish investors by answering all these questions and more in this video.

Glencore’s Murky Past and Uncertain Future

5 | By Shah Gilani

The story of the man who started Glencore PLC – and why he fled the United States (and needed and got a presidential pardon) – is a crazy one.

But it pales compared to the ongoing story of Glencore itself – how this Swiss firm grew from one of the most powerful private commodities company in the world to the globe’s most powerful publicly traded commodities company… and how relentless growth in pursuit of staggering personal wealth drove Glencore’s existence and global markets to the edge of an abyss.

It’s a story I know well: As a trader, I followed the company closely for years. And I actually chronicled the Glencore saga for Forbes several years back.

So no one is better-positioned to bring this tale to you.

That’s why you should listen when I say that if Glencore can’t survive over the next few months the company’s collapse could splatter the markets in a manner that’s every bit as gruesome as the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008.

First, I’ll relate how Glencore came into existence.

Then, I’ll detail how the company could easily implode.

Finally, I’ll let you know what to look for so you’ll know Glencore’s brakes have failed and it’s heading over the cliff, taking global markets with it.

Plus, I’ll show you some ways you can make some big money on this potentially horrific crash…

Six weeks ago, during an appearance on Fox Business, Shah was the only market expert to predict a 20% drop for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Now, with recent events in Syria putting more pressure on the markets, Shah warns we could be heading even lower than that.
