When it comes to elections, Jim Rogers has always maintained a simple stance – the markets are not going to change that much! He does note though that history shows that if the incumbent president wins then the stock market is likely to go up next year but if the challenger wins then the odds are lower. The challenger tends to have a ‘clean up’ attitude, according to Rogers. But he does add that regardless of who the boss of the White House will be, the Fed and Central Banks world over will continue printing money.
On the candidates and their expected policies, Rogers says economies never like taxes being raised which is something Joe Biden has indicated as his potential policy action. Raising taxes has rarely been good for the market, says Rogers. He further expects Democrats to curtail the big energy firms, break up the big tech companies.
His allegiance to Gold & Silver remains. Rogers continues to maintain his stance of an expected continued run-up in both precious metals and advises investors to not sell any of these. He continues to own a few US Dollars as well. “When the US$ gets overpriced in the next year or 2 or 3 then I will sell it. I hope I get my timing right,” says Rogers.
Rogers identifies BlockChain as the next big disruptor. “Blockchain is going to change everything we know,” says Rogers. He believes that some big financial firms could even disappear in the tech wave while some may manage to make the Banking-Fin Tech transition
