The answer to “What difference does it make?” is that western economies plus Japan are currently in debt overdose mode which requires exponentially more debt for survival … so the agony of withdrawal occurs now … or later, when it will be even worse. The purchasing power of our debt based fiat currency will be exponentially eroded until the catastrophic “debt withdrawal” occurs. You can: Protect your purchasing power with silver and gold, or Trust that purchasing power will not decrease, in spite of 100 years of history. Paper dies, gold thrives! Paper dies, silver thrives!
The Western U.S. Dollar based monetary system is headed for a disaster. It is inevitable and just a matter of time. Investors who are chasing equities and bonds and who have ignored gold and silver due to the low paper price are losing out on the best buying opportunity of a lifetime.
Systems will reset and change when exponential growth at current or reduced rates becomes impossible. The transition is likely to be difficult, dangerous, and the ensuing trauma will not fade quietly into the night. Exponentially increasing debt supported by nothing more than exponentially increasing promises will end in national and/or global disaster. When the reset comes, and it may be years away, would you rather hold assets that are based on debt, trust in a possibly insolvent counter-party, and denominated in the currency of an increasingly insolvent government and central bank . . . . or physical gold and silver?
Don’t believe the lies or trust that unbacked debt based paper currencies will survive (they never do). Learn from the lessons of history – gold and silver have been money for thousands of years. The western world currently has amnesia about the true nature of money. Asia has not forgotten the value of gold and silver. Convert increasingly risky dollars, euros, yen, bonds, and other delusions into gold and silver while you can. The window of opportunity will not remain open much longer.
While it is impossible to function without a bank account, it is imperative for individuals to do whatever it takes to preserve their wealth. If there is a financial collapse coming, your bank and your government are not going to do a darn thing to save you. And, instead they will destroy your wealth and leave you destitute. This is why it is important to hold both physical gold and silver.
The interesting observation is that most months of the first half of this year, silver coins were more popular than gold. January 2014 was the only significant exception. One should note that this chart shows the dollar value of gold vs silver coins. As silver is about 60 times less expensive than gold, it means that the number of coins sold were many times higher than the number of gold coins sold.
We see charts as the “improved mousetrap,” as it were, and superior as a tool for market timing over fundamentals, or any other similar undertaking, for relating to what and when to buy in the markets. Still, there are not that many converts who pay more attention to what the market is saying. The one thing we know for sure is, regardless of whatever one has in the form of expectations, they are always subordinate to the final arbiter over price, and that is the market itself. The best we can say about gold is that it may be transitioning from its protracted down trend. The signs that gold remains under pressure are still there, bearish spacing, lower swing highs, etc, and that means any buying has to be very select, or not at all, again, profit being the only objective.
For every valid reason that so many others are advocating the purchase of physical gold and silver, demand, shortages, Chinese buying, exchange disappearing physical, etc, etc, we echo those sentiments and suggest/advise to keep on buying, but hold it personally. However, for more salient reasons, such as discussed in our last several commentaries, as well as this one, there are far more important reasons to buy and hold gold and silver: They are money.
The delusions regarding the value of paper currency, usefulness of the Fed, government entitlements, the welfare and warfare state, and continual growth are weakening. The ultimate reckoning may be sudden or slow, but it will not be pretty for the unprepared. Gold and silver will remain valuable and a store of value over the next 60 years.
Here I am, directly and consistently accusing two of the world’s most important financial institutions of market manipulation (making sure I send each all my accusations) and I have received no complaint from either. I don’t think that has ever occurred previously. Now I am taking it one step further; presenting a guide for how and why JPMorgan and the CME should be sued for their manipulation of gold, silver, and copper.
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 this interview with Claudio Grass, our friends at SGTReport talk through several fundamental points related to free markets (Austrian economics), the concept of money and the precious metals markets. Claudio Grass is the Managing Director of Global Gold, a bullion company specialized in storage of physical precious metals outside the banking system in safe jurisdictions like Switzerland. We have chosen four underexposed insights related to gold.
