Financial Advise Stock Market Crash Great Depression Inflation Deflation Bear Market Jim Shepherd's financial advisor service uses a financial investment model that 
		accurately predicts the financial long-term changes in the US financial stock market. The financial investment model used by Jim's financial advisor 
		service predicted both the 1987 and 1929 stock market crashes. Many other smaller interim financial moves also were predicted, including the
		beginning of the 2000 Bear stock market in late 1999. Both inflation and the current descent toward deflation, that was responsible for the great
		depression, are measured by this same financial investment model that has been used to predict both bear markets and new bull markets,
		far in advance of anything available in the U.S. financial markets.

The man who's been predicting the financial future since 1982

During the late 1970s Jim Shepherd identified the top of the real estate market and sold all the holdings in his development company making his first million dollars at 26 years old. A couple of years later when people began forming line-ups around banks waiting to buy gold at over $800 per ounce, Shepherd knew it was time to sell once again. The price of gold collapsed shortly thereafter.

However, Jim's success in real estate and precious metals had not been complimented by the advice he was receiving about the stock market. He had become increasingly unhappy with recommendations that were coming from so-called professionals who always seemed to recommend an investment that had risen dramatically and then fell shortly after being recommended.

Having an analytical mind Jim set about researching old data looking for patterns that were consistent with changes of the stock market and the economy. His research went on for years until he slowly began to see some patterns developing. Further analysis showed the patterns were consistent with each approaching major directional change. When he back-checked the data over a 100-year period it clearly proved that he had created a model that had accurately predicted every major change during that period. He began using his model in 1982 and by September 1987 it had produced its first signal, a sell signal for stocks. You can imagine his excitement, when shortly thereafter, that sell signal was followed by a Critical Mass signal, a warning that a stock market crash was imminent.

Jim was an options broker at the time and knew how profitable this knowledge could be to him and to those clients who believed in him. And yes, there were some who were doubters and of course there always are. Jim and the believers bought deep-out-of-the-money put options on the S&P; 500 index and waited. They were soon to be rewarded when the crash came on October 19th 1987. That event increased the value of each option from around $200 to over $30,000. Jim's clients who followed his advice became instant millionaires on that day (and Jim for a second time) and many of them are his clients to this day.

Because Jim's time was finite, he was only able to deal with a limited number of investors seeking his investment recommendations, Jim was eventually coaxed into writing an investment newsletter and by late 1997 The Shepherd Investment Newsletters had been born. Jim Shepherd's investment newsletter met with rapid approval and has continued to provide the vehicle wherein thousands of investors craft their investments based on the signals from his model and from Jim's exceptional analytical and technical skills.


We anticipate the very high probability, that during the next year, Jim's investment recommendations should appreciate by an additional 50%, not including the possible use, again, of options that brought Jim's clients huge profits in 1987, 1991, 1994 and 1998. We cannot and do not recommend the use of options.

This environment is not like any we have seen since the 1930's

Traditional mortgages are becoming more difficult to obtain. Given that there are vast amounts of mortgage dollars that fall outside of the conforming category, one would be hard pressed to think of how home prices will do anything but decline for a lot longer than most analysts think. In fact, I am talking about perhaps the most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression.
