Gold or Crushing Paper Debt

Gold or Crushing Paper Debt

Our financial world seems more unstable and more dangerous than usual. Which has been safer under difficult economic and political conditions during the past 3,000 years – gold or debt based paper?

The Correlation Between The Gold Price and Bitcoins

The Correlation Between The Gold Price and Bitcoins

In mid-September, there seems to be a sudden change to a positive correlation between the gold and bitoin prices. Our magnitudes of change appear to become more alike in size and direction. There are 30 days of data calculated in generating the correlation. Therefore, the speed of this change suggests a significant shift in the that calculates the correlation value. What does this mean? We think that it may show that gold and bitcoin have been making large price movements together.

Gold Price vs U.S. Debt Ratio In 2014: A Major Disconnect

Gold Price vs U.S. Debt Ratio In 2014: A Major Disconnect

Gold has tracked the expansion in US debt pretty handily. The correlation between the two is +0.86. In 2011, the rise in the gold price became overextended relative to the rise in US debt. Then it decoupled and went in the opposite direction. This is a similar trend to what occurred in the early 1980s. And if one expects that relationship to resume, then gold looks anomalously cheap relative to the rising level of US debt.

Another Sign Of Gold Moving Back Into The Financial System

Another Sign Of Gold Moving Back Into The Financial System

Desirable or not, it’s happening. The US dollar’s days are numbered. Now, gold, with its millennia-long history is making a comeback. We’re not just talking about it as a store of wealth or a speculation, but as a regular form of currency.

Truthseeking: How The Elites Are Running The World, The Dollar And Metals

Truthseeking: How The Elites Are Running The World, The Dollar And Metals

None of these stories are news-headline-grabbing, but they are pieces of the puzzle that, when put together, a picture of how the elites run the world suddenly appears. They are in control. No one can oppose their power. China and Russia are opposing them, right now, and their strength, backed by huge natural resources, [Russia], and massive amounts of gold, [China and Russia], engaging and encouraging other countries to build and grow from within, may very well win the day and be the catalyst to bring down the Empire of Chaos, led by the evil cabal of debt serpents, the elites.

Dollar Gold And How It Affected Gold Since The Financial Crisis

Dollar Gold And How It Affected Gold Since The Financial Crisis

As the dollar has risen to a level not seen since the first outbreak of the euro problem in mid-2010, it would seem as if the level of dollar stress might be somewhat heightened, though it is impossible to know exactly if that is the case and to what degree. It looks as if the breakout of gold prices below the range that had been so stable since early in the year would add evidence to that theory. Gold prices under these conditions will act inversely, as funding pressures where gold is used as a substitute collateral are depressive. That would further suggest, if correct, that central banks may be back into supplying gold where they were likely absent only a few months ago.

Why Money Is Worse Than Debt

Why Money Is Worse Than Debt

Governments and Central Banks (which are like economic Siamese twins) not only print Fiat Money but on top they make the cost to print more money, issue new debt and serve past debt ridiculously low….In reality, Real Interest rates (nominal interest rate less real inflation rate) or the cost to issue more fiat money has even become negative. Propaganda must be extremely solid to keep such a mirage alive and absolute no accident may happen.

Currencies Break, Gold Price Not

Currencies Break, Gold Price Not

With credit markets in Europe and the US taking a bit of a pause for profit-taking or reassessment, it is notable that currencies have not. The euro finally broke free of what looked like a steady range, though unfortunately to the downside. While that may be celebrated by orthodox economists in Brussels and elsewhere, it should not as such devaluation has led to no place good in the recent past. Curiously, however, the ultimate indicator of such risk, gold, has remained in its rut while these other pieces notoriously shed such contented framing.

The Price Of Gold and The Art Of War

The Price Of Gold and The Art Of War

Only fools and the ideologically impaired believe that today’s capital markets are free. In free markets, prices are determined by supply and demand. In capital markets, supply and demand considerations are subordinated to capitalism’s increasingly dysfunctional monetary menses, i.e. credit flows, emanating from central banks. Of all markets, today’s gold markets are the least free. Based on history, we know that gold will soon again experience a meteoric rise in spite of government attempts to the contrary.

Is Euro Gold Decoupling From Dollar Gold?

Is Euro Gold Decoupling From Dollar Gold?

The US Dollar has rallied significantly since July of this year. Consequently, gold has come under pressure, as the yellow metal has gone from $1,340 an ounce in July to $1,251 today. At least, that is what we read in mainstream media. But here is the key point. Gold has come down in US Dollar terms, but not in Euro terms. So, in other words, Euro gold has held up much better than Dollar gold. This article examines the evidence.

Precious Metals And The Dollar

Precious Metals And The Dollar

I would describe most of the exuberance regarding the dollar as wishful thinking at best. The news just this morning about the American job market, for one, hardly justifies any great faith in the underlying power of the US economy. And the fact that the ECB feels the need to adopt the same kinds of radical monetary policies practiced by other western nations like the US and Japan, only confirms the view of many dollar bears that the West is on the decline, and other powers (most notably China) do have reason to seek at least some diversification away from the world’s reserve currency.

NWO Equals Deceit, Debt, & War. Precious Metals A Casualty.

NWO Equals Deceit, Debt, & War. Precious Metals A Casualty.

If you want to know why your holdings of physical gold and silver have remained under suppression, it is because both are anathema to paper fiat currencies, and the ones who are in control, the moneychangers, will not tolerate competition against their fiat Ponzi monopoly scheme. Not until the elite bankers lose control of the fiat US “dollar” can you expect to see dramatic price increases for gold and silver, irrespective of any and all fundamentals and more widely recognized efforts of manipulation.

A Glimpse Into Our Monetary Future

A Glimpse Into Our Monetary Future

China is most likely evolving towards a gold backed Yuan. They are actively promoting the Yuan as a trade currency, as evidenced by almost daily announcements of bilateral swap agreements. On the other hand, the nations of the BRICS announced their own monetary fund which is evidence of a growing number of initiatives in which countries are moving out of the US Dollar. Putting all this together, it seems that an SDR based reserve currency with a more important weighting of BRICS nation and some parts in gold, is a very likely scenario.
