Although today’s Fed announcement didn’t really change anything, the financial markets continued to anticipate higher U.S. rates. The first chart shows the 5-Year Treasury Note Yield climbing close to its yearly high. The 10-Year T-Note yield also bounced. The widening spread between U.S. and foreign yields continues to support the dollar. The second chart shows the Dollar Index hitting a new recovery high. That pushed most commodity prices lower. The orange bars in the second chart shows the Gold Trust falling to a new low.

Eventually we’ll have a collapse or deflationary bust in asset markets. That’s inevitable. Printing money can postpone such a collapse but eventually the bust will occur. Every inflation, whether consumer price inflation or asset inflation, eventually comes to an end. I hold physical gold for the reason that one day I may not be able to remit money from one country to another. I don’t know when this final systemic collapse that I am foreseeing will occur but all I can say is that in monetary, inflationary times, when inflation is measured properly, in real terms: stocks usually don’t do particularly well but gold does.
Central banks around the world are now printing money virtually out-of-thin air, virtual money, in order to provide the requisite liquidity that severely stressed capital markets require. This money, however, never reaches the economy-at-large. It is instead fueling asset bubbles in global stock markets sparked by the speculative frenzies induced by the bankers’ excess credit.
As we have finally arrived in the magic year 2014, in which almost every economic and business cycle is trending down, it seems that things are perfectly lining up for a melt down. If it would have been true that the debt crisis was contained (like our political leaders try to make us believe), then there is a huge divergence with recent trends. This article looks at six different trends which are lining up for an historic sell off in the markets. As readers observe, we stay as factual as possible.
The value in projecting what the collapsing governments may do to their citizens is not merely an exercise in speculation. If the reader concludes that there is a significant percentage of likelihood that any of the above are coming his way, he would be well-advised to assess whether they are developments that he feels he could live with. If not, he might wish to assess how much time he has before these events become a reality and what he may do to sidestep their impact on him.
Ponzi-financing is the final stage in the bankers’ 300-year old ponzi scheme. An extreme deflationary collapse is about to take away all what credit created and the take-away will not be easy for those attached to the world that is passing away. The global economic collapse along with increasingly severe earth changes, e.g. record heat, record cold, earthquakes, drought, floods, etc., are the trigger events for a paradigm shift of cosmic proportions. The rebalancing of universal polarities is underway. A better world is coming.
This is an interview with Jim Rogers, conducted by Birch Gold Group. The topics that are covered range from monetary policy, the stock market frenzy, currency wars and precious metals.
There are just 2-3 anonymous investments to avoid being robbed by NWO socialists: physical precious metals, cash, Bitcoin (with reservations). Each of the 3 has advantages & disadvantages, foreign currency accounts potentially being planned as an escape. Of course, the big drawback of gold is the nasty performance.
In a Q&A with GoldSilverWorlds, Peter Schiff, explained why the mother of all collapses is still in front of us and shared his top tips on how to protect financially. Looking at the course of the economy and the markets, Schiff sees a confirmation of the outlook he presented in his books. The collapse of the dollar is unavoidable and will be the worst of all crises.
The U.S. economy is being overwhelmed by a loss of faith and trust in politicians, government, and bankers, excessive debts, artificially low interest rates, unsustainable deficit spending, expensive wars, QE (money printing) to infinity, “Inflate or Die” monetary policy, potential derivatives implosion, Obamacare and so much more. A slow-motion collapse is occurring and most of us do not see it.
The U.S. stock market is near all-time highs, while politicians and economists are blathering about recovery, low inflation, and good timess. To the extent we rely upon the fantasies of ever-increasing debt, money printing, and credit bubbles, we are vulnerable to financial collapses. Perhaps a collapse is not imminent, but it would be foolish to ignore the possibility.
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.
