Even with the sharp decline from last month, and the overall decline since September of 2011, there is still bullish spacing. It occurs when the current swing low is above the last swing high, from 2008. It tells us that buyers have been willing to buy into the market without waiting to see how the last swing high will be tested, an overall bullish condition.

A short but powerful documentary shows the similarities between the evolution towards the hyperinflationary period in the Weymar Republic in 1923 / 1924, and the USA today. The similarities appear to be striking!
The media encourages us to believe that practically everything in our economy is either good or getting better. It is not. Trust your instincts and observations more and government statistics and the mainstream media less.
In a recent interview, Doug Casey talks with Peter Schiff about his expectations of the gold price and the future of the dollar. They discuss the role of the central bank(s) in today’s debt crisis and conclude that the Fed is trapped. They end with some tips on where individuals and investors can go to with their money.
In a recent interview with Gold Silver Worlds, John Rubino (co-author of “The Collapse of the dollar” and owner of DollarCollapse.com) explained how bad the economic fundamentals really are. The economic situation looks under control currently, but John Rubino is convinced we are now in the eye of the storm. He concludes that the longer this unbalanced situation goes on the faster the eventual collapse will play out. John Rubino published his book in 2004 together with James Turk from GoldMoney. The main theme of the book was that governments in the US lost control over their spending and borrowing, which would ultimately result in some sort of catastrophic crisis. [...]
Lindsey Williams is the man who, because of his contacts in the oil industry, correctly predicted that the world price for oil would fall from roughly $140.00 per barrel to less than $50.00 per barrel. He confesses how the high level agenda’s of our leaders look like, at least for the coming four years. He explains five trends that will prevail in the coming four years. He mentions also the objective for the price of gold: by 2016, it should go to $3,000 to keep pace with the debt creation.
An amazing list of real facts was published by The Economic Collapse Blog, entitled 75 Economic Numbers From 2012 That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe. An excellent article that presents 75 facts & figures, based on research or surveys, indicating the real state of the US. Reviewing those facts and comparing them with the messages in the mainstream media and the government, we see such a huge disconnect.
Admittedly, these are challenging times. When confronted with challenges, people tend to think more outside the box. The aim of this article is to understand our current path by looking from a broader perspective than we are used to. What if indeed these times are different? Can we find evidence that helps us understand in which direction we are heading? GoldSilverWorlds interviewed Darryl Schoon who provided a lot of insights for this article. Darryl was one of the few people who correctly predicted the big financial crash of 2008/9. He is the author of several books (highly recommended reading). Today, December 21, 2012 is a day that is anticipated by many. [...]
The new Thunder Report is out. The author reviews the macro economic prospects for 2013-15, based on the long wave or Kondratieff Cycle. In the past, following the Kondratieff Cycle gave a 91% probability on success. It is now signalling that a new crisis is looming on the horizon. Excessive debt is the key driver. The Kondratieff Cycle is in its last of four big cycles that started in 1788. The end of this large cycle will be characterized by debt reduction through INFLATION and by DEFLATION in the prices of almost everything in terms of gold. That’s why the title of the current edition of The Thunder Report is [...]
We often read or hear quotes like “paper money eventually fail” and “paper money always returns to its intrinsic value which is zero.” In this article, we provide evidence why these statements are true, backed by research in which 599 different forms of paper money have been analyzed. We explain in an easy to understand way what money fundamentally is, how monetary policies of governments are affecting everyone of us and how gold is first and foremost an alternative form of money (for each and every one of us, not only for an elite). Courtesy of Vince Cate for the incredibly valuable research and David Morgan who referred us to [...]
Michael MacDonald and Christopher Whitestone did a superb Q&A with GoldSilverWorlds. In their book “The Silver Bomb” (available on Amazon.com), they wrote about their views on the world and the markets. They have summarized it and enriched with recent facts and figures. The markets are completely bought and paid for, corrupt, and manipulated … “a farce”. We are in a corruption bubble, the largest corruption bubble the world has ever seen in modern history and perhaps in all history. This is the first time that the world has been united within instant communication, instant information, instant deposit or receipt of funds into any bank account or financial institution. Michael says: [...]
The author does a terrific job again, this time in summarizing the most important thoughts about the current economic effects on the monetary policy of the US government (in casu QE3). Although a lot has been written about QE3, it can be difficult for people with no economic background, to connect the dots between monetary actions, economic effects, personal risks. Furthermore, with a limited understanding of monetary matters, it can be difficult to distinguish the benefits that are argued by policymakers versus the real benefits / risks. From that point of the view, the following article succeeds in bringing an understandable summary of what really is happening in our economy as [...]
Today Peter Schiff spoke with King World News about what he described as “The perfect storm.” Schiff also discussed gold, the Fed, mining shares, and much more. But first, here is what he had to say about mainstream fund managers and gold: “I think that what’s going on is that most mainstream investors, who invest other people’s money, see gold as a bubble and are waiting for it to burst. People think the price of gold is going to go down. They think the Fed is done easing.” Peter Schiff continues: “Everybody is waiting for the other shoe to drop for the price of gold. If you look at the price of gold [...]
