Peter Schiff and Jim Rogers are probably the two most well-known go-to guys for this.  Marc Faber is another.  Click for their respective websites.

Frank Shostak (adjunct scholar at the Mises Institute) runs a consulting firm, Applied Austrian School Economics, that actually provides in-depth assessments and reports of financial markets and global economies from an Austrian perspective.

There is a "personal finance" section in the Mises Store, and it's mostly comprised of Rogers' titles.  Schiff also has a couple of books on the subject, namely Crash Proof 2.0 and The Little Book of Bull Moves.

But others have asked this question in the past.  You might check out those threads:
