Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 18, 2004
MarketThoughts (http://www.marketthoughts.com), a stock advisory and educational site operated by Henry To, CFA, and Rex Hui, trading systems programmer brings to you an exclusive one-on-one interview (http://www.marketthoughts.com/john_mauldin.html) with best-selling author and the leading financial thinker, Mr. John Mauldin. We spoke to John Mauldin on a recent trip to Houston and we discussed everything that would qualify as the most important issues of today - such as the recent bear market in stocks, a continuing decline in the U.S. dollar, demographics trends, and even controversial issues such as outsourcing or "offshoring." This is a must-read for any serious investor who wants to protect his or her family from the upcoming financial and demographic storms that may lie ahead.

The mission of MarketThoughts.com is to provide the highest level of performance, service, integrity and education to our readers.

We provide our readers with a twice-a-week commentary designed to educate subscribers about the stock market and the economy beyond the headlines.

In January 2000, the cofounder, Henry To, CFA of MarketThoughts.com alerted his friends and associates about the huge risks created by the historic speculative environment in both the domestic and the international stock markets. Through a series of correspondence and e-mails during January to early April 2000, he discussed his reasons and the implications of this historic mania, and suggested that the best solution was to sell all the technology stocks in one's portfolio. He also alerted his friends and associates about the possible ending of the bear market in gold later in 2000, and suggested that it was the best time to accumulate gold mining stocks with both the Philadelphia Gold and Silver Mining Index and the American Exchange Gold Bugs Index at a value of 40 (today, the value of those indices are at approximately 100 and 230, respectively).
