Dollar Reserve Currency Dying But Meantime No Respite For Precious Metals

Dollar Reserve Currency Dying But Meantime No Respite For Precious Metals

In a nutshell, if the elites have their way, and to date they remain unopposed, the fiat Federal Reserve Note, aka the debt “dollar,” will be replaced with some form of a new international currency, or perhaps Special Drawing Rights, an international basket of currencies. All money may exist as computer credits that can be readily tracked. If anyone dare oppose the bankers, poof, your credits just disappeared, and you have nothing. Bankers rely on debt largesse and fear.

Silver’s Technical Outlook Shows A Potential Bullish Setup

Silver’s Technical Outlook Shows A Potential Bullish Setup

If silver does manage to bounce back from any of these support levels, it could go on to break the bearish trend line before embarking on a rally towards $18.80 level – this being the meeting point of the 200-day moving average and the 61.8% Fibonacci level of the last downswing.

Remarkable Action on Dollar and Gold Charts

Sean Brodrick rightfully observes on his blog a remarkable action in both the US dollar chart (as tracked by the UUP fund) and the gold chart (as tracked by GLD). The chart below shows the dollar and right below both dollar and gold. In particular, the rising dollar comes with a stable gold price, which is not the most regular pattern. It is a positive for gold though.

The Price Of Gold And The Art Of War

The Price Of Gold And The Art Of War

When growth slows in capital markets, the bankers’ daisy-chain of credit and debt breaks down; setting in motion defaulting debt which ends in recession, deflation or, in extreme cases, a deflationary depression. A deflationary depression is a fatal monetary phenomena where the velocity of money—circulating credit and debt—falls so low capital markets are no longer self-sustaining. This happens after the collapse of massive speculative bubbles such as the collapse of the 1929 US stock market bubble which resulted in the world’s first deflationary depression, the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Gold Asset Markets Showing Signs Of Fatigue

Gold Asset Markets Showing Signs Of Fatigue

Gold has had a chance to rally but some of the components of the gold asset markets are now starting to show some signs of fatigue. The price itself , as represented by the Gold Trust ETF, the GLD, looks as though it is trying to form an inverse head and shoulders. In order for this bullish pattern to be completed we would need to see a break above the $120. The hesitating KST in the lower panel throws some doubt on the possibility of the pattern being completed.

Infographic: The Many Phases Of Silver

Infographic: The Many Phases Of Silver

Like the moon, silver has many phases and is the most dynamic of the precious metals. Its dynamic properties give it the most uses of any metal, which include those in commerce, health and industry. In its first phase, silver acted as a monetary metal. This infographic describes how the Persian empire, the Greek and Roman empires had used silver in their economic and monetary system. In the second phase, silver was a health metal. In phase 3, silver played a role as an industrial metal; today, silver has thousands of uses.

The Day People Will Need Insurance, Gold Will Not Trade At $1200

The Day People Will Need Insurance, Gold Will Not Trade At $1200

Say what you want about the gold price languishing below $1200, and say what you want about the technical picture or the “6,000-year bubble,” as Citi’s Willem Buiter recently termed it; but know this: gold is an insurance policy and the time to assess gold is when people have a sudden need for insurance. When that day comes — and believe me, it’s coming — the price will be the very last thing that matters. It will be purely and simply a matter of securing possession and at any price. That price will NOT be $1200. A “run” on the gold “bank” would undoubtedly lead to one of those Warren Buffett moments when a bunch of people are left standing naked on the shore.

Ronald Stoeferle: Opposing Forces At Play In The Precious Metals Complex

When taking all ongoing trends into consideration, it becomes clear that there are opposing forces at play in the precious metals complex. U.S. Dollar strength and disinflation, supported by the ongoing oil price collapse, are providing headwinds for the metals; on the other hand, a recent rise in fear in the euro area, combined with continuing loose monetary policies, result in favorable conditions.

Events Impacting Gold And Silver Prices In The Week Of December 15th

For the week commencing December 15th, there are some key economic releases that could cause significant volatility in the gold and silver price, as well as two major central bank speeches. Below is a more detailed calendar of economic data in key markets. We expect increased volatility on Wednesday, with CPI figures being released in the U.S. and Europe, as well as a speech of the U.S. Fed. As we are in the two last tax loss selling weeks in the U.S. and Canada, gold and silver are vulnerable. If the prices of the metals would hold up, it would be a very healthy sign; a replay of last year could be in the cards.

All Debts Will Eventually Be Extinguished

Under today’s paper monetary system, debts and other financial obligations are never extinguished. They are merely passed from one person to another and eventually become an obligation of the government or its central bank. In the U.S. all debts become obligations of the U.S. government as federal reserve notes are by law obligations of the U.S. government. Since the Bank of England is a department of the British government, its bank notes are obligations of the British government. Nevertheless, these debts will eventually be extinguished.
