I have been in the renminbi for almost two years now and have achieved about a 42% return. I got hit on a futures trade where I shorted the US dollar prematurely otherwise, I would have had a year to date return of about 200%.
I should have known the US would continue to manipulate the market and try to hang on by a thread to their reserve currency standing. I even have the bulk of cash assets offshore in a Hong Kong bank and highly suggest that you all go offshore as well. When genius investment gurus like Steve Sjuggerud break camp from the US dollar and even go as far as to suggest Canadian equities...well let's just say the writing is on the wall in neon pink! I'm very excited about this article because it proves that I was right despite some Wall Street types saying I pulled the trigger too soon. I just don't want to get blind-sided and should shouldn't either.
Jim Rogers has one of the greatest track records in history… He delivered a 4,200% return to investors of his legendary Quantum Fund in the 1970s… at a time when the U.S. stock market returned just 47%. And then he walked away from managing money. Today, Jim and I agree on a major investment idea. We agree that the time has come to move a portion of your money OUTSIDE of the U.S. dollar… and into a place you’ve probably never considered.
I have a simple way to make the investment… and I believe it’s the safest place to park your cash over the next few years. Jim is more ambitious. He believes it could be a triple-digit winner. Either way, it’s an idea you need to consider today.
Let me explain…
This summer, Jim predicted that China’s currency could soar by 300%, 400%, or even 500% against the U.S. dollar in the next couple decades. “If anyone wants to sell renminbi, I’d be willing to buy,” Jim said.
And just last month, Jim said he expects China’s currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s most important currency in the next 20 years. (He is so optimistic about China, he moved his family from New York to Asia, and his young daughter now speaks fluent Mandarin.)
Anyone investing in China’s currency over the last few years has done well. Just this week, the dollar hit a new low versus China’s currency… the renminbi. In fact, the dollar has looked pretty bad against the renminbi over the last decade. Take a look:
The renminbi is undervalued by 30%-50%, according to The Economist magazine.
China’s currency has appreciated 3%-4% per year in recent years. I think that’s our “base case” going forward. However, we might do much better than that in the coming years… thanks to Janet Yellen.
“There will be a prolonged period of appreciation for the renminbi,” Li Daokui, a former adviser to China’s central bank, said when he heard Yellen got the job. He knows Yellen will keep printing money and keep interest rates at zero for a “relatively longer period,” which would further weaken the dollar.
So we can expect to earn 3%-4% a year in profits simply by holding cash in China’s currency – with the potential for much bigger gains if smart people like Jim Rogers are right.
The easiest way to make the trade is through a U.S.-traded exchange-traded fund (ETF) that pays a 3.3% dividend.
I’m talking about the PowerShares Chinese Yuan Dim Sum Bond Fund (DSUM).
This fund holds a portfolio of “dim sum” bonds. A dim-sum bond is issued OUTSIDE of China, but it is IN China’s currency. This is exactly what we want.
With DSUM, you’ll earn a 3.3% dividend. PLUS, you’ll get the renminbi’s appreciation – around 3%-4% a year, maybe more. You may also see a capital gain as DSUM’s bonds increase in value. It could add up to 10% a year… in an income investment.
You MUST face the facts… You have too much of your wealth in the U.S. dollar…
Every day, our politicians are actively making the U.S. dollar more unattractive in global markets. Meanwhile, China is actively making its currency more attractive.
According to one of the best investors of all time – Jim Rogers – the renminbi could overtake the U.S. dollar within 20 years as the world’s most important currency. And he says it could go up in value by 300%, 400%, or 500% in the next couple decades.
You can choose to ignore this trend and see your wealth in U.S. dollars shrink. Or you can position a portion of your portfolio in China’s currency to take advantage of it. I recommend parking some of your cash outside the U.S. through shares of DSUM.
