Global Alternative Investments
Over his 33-year career in the investment industry, Sid Klein
has consistently written commentary under different eponymous
banners, including Sid Klein's Daily Fax and, most recently,
the Sid Klein Global Strategy report.
As of December 2014, to
respond to the challenges of today's investment environment,
Sid Klein's attention has turned from writing market commentary
to structuring products that are not otherwise available to
meet and satisfy today's investment exigencies.
Sid possesses one of the most successful publicly verifiable
long term track records of timing and analysis in the investment
world, within the context of broad coverage of the global markets
and major asset classes.
Globally today, he sees secular equity bull markets as winding
down, while expecting resumptions of, and accelerations within
the precious metals' secular bull markets, even more.
The selection of the products' preferred currencies (so as to
maximize returns and lower time premiums) remains a fluid variable
during these currency wars that, in the bigger picture, devalue

Using structured products of his own design, Sid Klein's objective
is to minimize risk relative to maximal leverage - no mirrors,
just experience and knowledge.
As example, silver's inflection point and resultant sundry products
illustrate that greater leverage is achieved, the more that
one seeks safety. Such is the effect of today's manipulated
and bizarre investment world.
Further example: the Yuan's inflection point was seen, but against
All global factors are critical in structuring product, including
the strategic choices concerning leverage factors.
In all, the factors are many, and one skilled in macro financial,
economic and political analyses, coupled with extensive experience
in time premium assessment, is best suited to fully benefit.
Asymmetrically-trending asset classes and markets help smooth
portfolio volatility; therefore, requisite knowledge and experience
benefit those seeking to hedge, or simply profit.
A collapse from global equity peaks would be consistent with
the fundamentals of a secular gold bull market that will have
been supported by currency devaluations and historically high
bond prices which, together, provide investors few global long-only
Hence, the need to structure
products into which one chooses to invest, either to smooth
portfolio volatility (hedge), or perhaps experience windfall
profits by seizing today's time premium levels.
Key also, therefore, is the unfolding action in the rates-markets
and the roles that the latter play in structured product selection
- specifically, leveraged principal-guaranteed notes,
and the very long term warrants that
seek to benefit from Sid Klein's macro analyses.

"Kudos for Sid Klein who has demonstrated par excellence
understanding of the gold market."

"Sid tracks Tokyo more obsessively than most on this side
of the Pacific...and it shows in his calls."

Robert Prechter The Elliott Wave Theorist
"I know of no other service that has consistently forecast
and timed the precious metals with such precision. Nor any writer
who has analyzed the major Eastern and Western indices and equity
themes with such acumen since 2000. So, we're asset allocaters
who read SKGS."

"When I was writing the International Trader column, a
weekly musing on non-U.S. bourses that I created and launched
in BARRON'S in February 1978, I found Sid Klein's comments on
doings in Tokyo to be both informative and prescient. To refresh
your memory, the Nikkei-225 index closed at its alltime high
on the last trading day of 1989. Early in 1990, Sid correctly
insisted that the top was in. It was. Years later, he also called
the bottom in Tokyo, and urged his clients to start buying again.
After retiring in March 2000, I became very interested in gold
and gold stocks. I still am. Sid also follows this sector and
believes it's in a secular bull market. My agreement is another
reason to read."

"In the first quarter of 2000, Mr. Sid Klein advised me
to trade-in my New Economy stocks for Japanese domestic value
equities; no one has ever given me more timely advice."
