Countdown To The Debt Ceiling Deadline

The Treasury Department declared a debt ceiling deadline of November 3rd. Outgoing House Speaker John Boehner will try to push through a debt increase before his scheduled departure on Friday (when he’ll likely hand over the gavel to Paul Ryan). If Congress can’t come to an agreement this week, markets could get rattled on the looming possibility of a U.S. default.

Elite’s NWO Secretly Operates In The Open. Gold And Silver Charts.

With the manipulated markets, the globalist’s central bankers are doing what they can to prop up the failing “dollar.” Within the space of a month, the fiat dropped from 97 to 94 and then rallied back above 97 for no discernible reason, surely not one that made sense. For as long as the chart of the sickly fiat “dollar” can give the appearance of ‘health,’ gold and silver are unlikely to rally. That said, anything is always possible, so gold and silver should be treated independent of this development.

Citibank Calls for Helicopter Money Drops across Globe

Citibank Calls for Helicopter Money Drops across Globe

Perhaps the central planners will even start mailing us all checks – early tax rebates or the like – so we go out and spend. Buiter’s call for shoving money down everyone’s throat is representative of the philosophy that pervades the Federal Reserve and Washington DC: There can never be too much stimulus or money creation. If stimulus is failing, it is simply because it is inadequate. It is time to double down. Couple Buiter’s request for “helicopter money” with his recent modest proposal to abolish cash – an idea gaining real traction with policy makers and the major banks – and you have everything you need to know about why it is important to hold physical gold and silver.

Markets And People Never Change. Gold And Silver Chart Analysis.

Markets never change. They are always the means for money powers to distribute their gains to the unsuspecting masses, and like the markets, people never change, always set up for being fleeced. One of the most important markets to watch is FX, foreign currencies, for that is where the demise of the Federal Reserve’s fiat Federal Reserve Note, more commonly accepted as the “dollar,” will play out.

Gold Price Correlation With Federal Funds Rates Since 1971

Gold Price Correlation With Federal Funds Rates Since 1971

If the Federal Reserve’s rate-hike cycles were indeed gold’s arch-nemesis, this zero-yielding sterile asset should have been hammered in the great majority of them. Instead gold actually rallied through 6 of the 11 modern Fed-rate-hike cycles! And at average gains seen within these exact rate-hike-cycle spans of a staggering +61.0%, gold did amazingly well. Gold often didn’t just weather rate hikes, but thrived in them!

Central Banks Are In Trouble

Central Banks Are In Trouble

Central banks are in trouble. The belief that a committee of academics can manage an economy is wilting as more and more question their role. The trillion euro quantitative easing and absurdly low and falling interest rates smack of desperate times and desperation. The vast injection of make-believe money will act as a great boost to the make-believe economy noted in official statistics. The one-per cent will certainly add to their paper wealth. It will not help the real economy though – the one where businesses employ people to produce goods in the hope of making a profit. Quite the opposite.

Is The Mainstream Financial Media Questioning Central Bank Credibility?

Is The Mainstream Financial Media Questioning Central Bank Credibility?

Jim Rickards discusses the observation that the financial mainstream media is increasingly questioning the credibility of central bank monetary policies. “I don’t actually think that the fundamental state of the world has changed. What has changed, it has become more visible. Analysts, investors and mainstream media are starting to wake up to things like currency wars, the save haven nature of gold, etc. I think the reason for that is that until you reach the zero rate bound, you can pretend it it’s a normal rate cutting exercise. Once you hit zero that pretense is gone and the currency war becomes more explicit.”

Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

| November 26, 2014 | Category: Investing
Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

The investment rationale for gold is the inverse of that for all paper currencies. Cheering for the rise in the dollar relative to other currencies, as measured by the DXY, is in our opinion seriously misplaced. The rise in the index is more a matter of sinking non-dollar currencies (or, more precisely, systemic subsidence) than an ascending dollar. No paper currency offers protection from monetary transgressions because of national borders: What happens in Europe, Japan, or China does not stay in Europe, Japan, or China. To function well, the global financial system must be seamless.

Gold Prices Higher Due To New Developments In Financial Markets

Gold Prices Higher Due To New Developments In Financial Markets

By publishing this statement, the Dutch Central Bank basically admits that holding gold increases the public trust in the central bank as an institution, and that’s a statement which should not and cannot be underestimated as it basically means that only physical gold can be trusted and that the gold should be stored inside the country. ‘He who owns the gold makes the rules’ once again seems to be up-and-coming again.

The Swiss Referendum On Gold: What’s Missing From The Debate

The Swiss Referendum On Gold: What’s Missing From The Debate

The problem of central bank overreach is certainly not isolated to Switzerland. Since the financial crisis 6 years ago, central banks around the world have interfered in and manipulated bond, foreign exchange, and equity markets on an unprecedented scale. These unelected institutions have actively redistributed wealth from one group to another and compete against one another to adjust the purchasing power of their national currency downwards relative to other nations without the knowledge of their populations. For over 3 years the SNB has been operating opaquely behind the scenes substituting another currency for its own, converted its citizen’s savings into EUR, and imposing a stealth tax on European imports without public consent.
