Tuesday December 23, 2014 - Central Banks can only momentarily control prices and cannot possibly reverse a trend !

Central Banks Secretly Controlling all Futures Prices-Chris Powell ! Referring to my interview with James Turk some years ago (see home page), the DANGER does come out of the East. Few people realize this. The Chinese have - like idiots - over the years accumulated $ 4 trillion of US-Dollar reserves. This is absolutely stupid. China can crush the Dollar in seconds time....and such will probably happen sometime in the future when China for some reason is forced to do so.
Regarding Gold, remember that in March 1968 the Gold Pool failed because there was a shortage of Physical Gold and the Central Banks were not prepared to carry more losses....
The CME Group’s most recent 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) lists its customers. Included in that list are governments and central banks. This is really a sensational development. Nobody can trade against central banks, they create infinite money. If central banks are secretly trading in the futures markets, there are no markets.

Monday December 22, 2014 - The Sheeple don't really notice anything, but just repeat whatever their rulers tell them." - Plato (427-347 BC)
If you're buying Real Estate because interest rates are low, you're probably making the biggest mistake in your life. It is true that fiscal allowances and Interest Rates do influence the end price of Real Estate. One must however be advised that these can actually also affect the price of a home in a negative way. Buying Real Estate in countries where the Real Estate Bubble still has to pop (France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Canada,...) is absolutely not a great idea. On the contrary. By doing so you do no more than chain yourself to an asset which is about to do you a lot of harm. Real Estate is a High Order Capital Good and its price ALWAYS comes down during (hyper) inflationary recessions and depressions.
"Selling a house with a mortgage is actually a clever way for Bankers and Politicians to restrict the movement of people without putting them in jail." Sheeple are the customers of Governments (politicians) and Bankers. If the Herd moves away, they are loosing their income (taxes). During times of recession and depression there is no better way to control the Masses by making them buy a house with a mortgage!?
Putin can now single handed terminate the EU and the USA (and so can China). President Vladimir Putin assured Russians on Thursday that the economy would rebound after the rouble's dramatic slide this year but offered no remedy for a deepening financial crisis. Defiant and confident at a three-hour news conference, Putin blamed the economic problems on external factors and said the crisis over Ukraine was caused by the West, which he accused of building a "virtual" Berlin Wall to contain Russia. At times sneering, at others cracking jokes, he ignored pressure to say how he will fix an economy facing what his economy minister calls a "perfect storm" of low oil prices, Western sanctions over Ukraine and global financial problems. In my opinion the crisis will solve itself...what goes around, comes around !

Friday December 19, 2014 - Western politicians are children playing with matches in a powder room !!!
Bank deposits are gone, worthless digits on a computer, a Mirage... Those who are still keeping important balances on accounts with the banking system, should better withdraw the funds and burn the money, at least they will be able to enjoy the fire. It really is beyond all imagination to see that there are still millions of people who keep BELIEVING in the Bank system.
On December 11, 2014, the US House passed a bill repealing the Dodd-Frank requirement that risky derivatives be pushed into big-bank subsidiaries, leaving our deposits and pensions exposed to massive derivatives losses. The bill was vigorously challenged by Senator Elizabeth Warren; but the tide turned when Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorganChase, stepped into the ring. Perhaps what prompted his intervention was the unanticipated $40 drop in the price of oil. As financial blogger Michael Snyder points out, that drop could trigger a derivatives payout that could bankrupt the biggest banks. And if the G20's new "bail-in" rules are formalized, depositors and pensioners could be on the hook.
Clever investors see through the smoke curtains and are preparing for the worst. Even if such means they have to invest the bulk of their savings in Barbaric Gold. Physical supply is drying up. Looking at the current conditions from a wholesale perspective, the very tight supplies of immediately deliverable gold here in London, which is the central bullion hub, are in worse shape than in 2001 or 2008. I have never seen a situation where miners, refiners, fabricators, and the like, have been finding it so hard to borrow gold that it’s forced them to seek very expensive alternative hedges, or to fly gold from other hubs into London, which is ramping up the premiums.
How long will the West be able to buy oil and gas from Russia in exchange for physical gold? And what will happen to the US petrodollar after the West runs out of physical gold to pay for Russian oil, gas and uranium, as well as to pay for Chinese goods?
|No one in the west today can answer these seemingly simple questions. And this is called "Checkmate", ladies and gentlemen. The game is over.
We need to drop the ruble to the maximum, and then buy all that we can, giving away the dollars that are no longer needed and not guaranteed by anything. This will help concentrate all of the roubles inside the country and to assign their price independently, while holding and then releasing more money to the market. (a Russian business man)
Russia may seek China help to deal with crisis. Off course they will. Earlier this evening China's State Administration of Foreign Exchange's (SAFE) Wang Yungui noted "the impact of the Russian Ruble depreciation was unclear yet, and, as Bloomberg reported, "SAFE is closely watching Ruble's depreciation and encouraging companies to hedge Ruble risks." His comments also echoed the ongoing FX reform agenda aimed at increasing Yuan flexibility which The South China Morning Post then hinted in a story entitled "Russia may seek China help to deal with crisis," which which noted that Russia could fall back on its 150 billion yuan ($24 billion) currency swap agreement with China if the ruble continues to plunge, that was signed in October. Furthermore, two bankers close to the PBOC reportedly said the swap-line was meant to reduce the role of the US dollar if China and Russia need to help each other overcome a liquidity squeeze.
IMF Now Ready To Slam The Door On The U.S. And The Dollar [2014 = 7] The IMF, under Christine Lagarde, has insisted that if the U.S. did not approve its part of the reforms, the IMF would be forced to pursue a "Plan B" scenario. The details on this "plan B" have not been forthcoming, until now. I suppose that if it is all random, then it is a rather convenient coincidence that the U.S. just happens to be on the verge of losing veto power in the IMF just before they are about to bring the BRICS into the SDR fold and supplant the dollar.
Obama and the Cuban surprise: Of course peace is at stake, a peace which is no more than a vain word, moreover. Ask China, India, Brazil, Iran, etc., if the West still conveys any image of peace.
The question is WHAT the Americans will come up with next....something will have to be done to keep the US-Dollar and all fiat paper money from drowning...Better prepare for the unexpected NOW!
- xx is starting a new upleg and is a buy.
- xxxxxxx, xxxxand other xxxx co's show a strong reversal under heavy volume. See section of xxxx shares to check more shares which are also in a BUY position (bottom of trading channel).
- More bullish action also for xxxxxxx. These are the canary in the mine indicating we'll soon see higher prices for Gold and Silver.

Thursday December 18, 2014 - Gold has gone up by 56 % in 2014 when expressed in Rubles ! -
Updated Sections: World Stock Market Indexes , Crude Oil ,
The supply of physical gold is drying up. Several Executives have decided to abandon the precious metals trading business partly because of difficulties in finding steady supplies of gold where the origin could be well documented.
At this point owners of gold should start to realize the gold they thought they owned, even if held safely in a deposit box deep in a gold vault in a safe offshore location, in reality "belongs" to someone else!
Right before the Weimar Revolution, Gold and the German mark behaved exactly like Gold and the Dollar today.
Right before the Weimar revolution, Gold collapsed before it exploded. I suspect that is what is going on here and now. Gold now working itself out of a bottom and getting ready to run. While we don’t know for sure, we do know that odds heavily favor a big move coming in the future on the upside for gold. Right before the Weimar revolution, the exchange rate of the German Mark was up versus most of the other currencies. In those days, many of these 'other currencies' were actually backed by Gold.
The Ruble and the advent of Hyperinflation in Russia? A small shop near Moscow is reviving memories of 1990s runaway inflation by stating prices in an unofficial unit pegged to foreign currency to protect against a steep fall in the ruble, according to a radio station. The Uslovniye Yedintsy (UY) or 'conventional units' were a common sight on price tags in place of rubles after the collapse of Soviet communism in 1991 and the rampant inflation that followed from abolition of price regulation. The unit price can be kept relatively constant, while the equivalent value in rubles the customer pays can be changed in line with the higher cost of, for instance, importing the goods.
|Traders are betting Russia's next move will be to sell gold...a suicidal bet it is !
The ruble plunges risk setting off a systemic bank run. “A large-scale run on deposits, once under way, would make capital controls pretty much unavoidable,” he said, adding that the authorities may start by forcing state-controlled companies to sell foreign assets and repatriate funds.
The ruble has now fallen 56 percent against the dollar over the past year. Russian GDP has shrunk to $1.1 trillion, smaller than the economy of Texas, and half the size of Italy’s. The effect has been to double Russia’s external debt to at least 70 percent of GDP, a high-risk level for rating agencies.
Off course, if as some sources pretend, Putin is selling his Gold to cover for the crashing Ruble, the Gold market could see temporarely relief. But such doesn't seem to be the case. A Reserve fund of 4 trillion rubles will shelter Russian economy from a drop in oil prices. The Russian economy is ready to face a new wave of crisis and the government is considering a variety of scenarios, including a strong drop in oil prices, said Vladimir Putin in an interview with TASS. As of November 1, 2014, the reserve fund had $90 billion or close to 4 trillion roubles, which is 5% of Russian GDP. (Putin was already smelling fish last month).
What is happening to the Ruble is nothing more than an extended financial war. The price of Oil is rigged in a similar way they rigged the price of Gold. In my opinion, as long as the system stays afloat, there is very little one can do...except be patient. [the last Russian Hyperinflation was seen in the late 1990's]
In case we don't have a hyperinflation in Russia, we may well see one in the USA (Americans are doing their utmost best). US Senate passes $1.1TRILLION spending bill . Vote ends threat of government shutdown and ensures funding for federal agencies until September, but battle over immigration reform postponed . The $1.1tn US budget finally cleared Congress on Saturday night after hours of last-minute legislative bargaining that secured a number of unexpected wins for Democrats but failed to stop a controversial plan to help Wall Street banks. The so-called “cromnibus” – a 1,600-page omnibus spending bill that funds most of government until next September – passed in the Senate by 56 to 40 votes.
Wednesday December 17, 2014 - This year's XMas present comes with the compliments of the US-situation-room
Obama ending the alliance with Saudi Arabia and killing the Petro-dollar.
This is a financial war organized by the USA to preserve the value and power of the Fiat Paper Dollar.
They killed Saddam Hussein and Khadaffi for it. These leaders also tried to weaken the Petro-dollar and had therefore to pay with their life for these actions. The Ruble is crashing. Russia had to increase its key interest rates to 17% in order to support the currency....all because (as a miracle) the Oil Price keeps sliding below its marginal production cost. And it is said the price of oil is crashing because DEMAND is not rising fast enough!?
|The Russian central bank's ratio is 12.5% — literally almost TEN TIMES GREATER than the Fed. The foreign currency reserves of Russia are about 5% of the Russian GDP and Russia has A LOT OF GOLD...a lot more than the USA*
* the FED holds no Gold - only certificates redeemable in gold.
No financial analyst seems to notice that such a price movement : too much, too fast and too deep is no natural market behavior but the result of manipulation (with the help of derivatives). As a matter of fact what we see: cheaper oil, cheaper gold & silver , a crashing Ruble and a strong Dollar is exactly the opposite of the reality. Nobody mentioning that this fata morgana is created on the paper markets with the help of derivatives.
|For the Americans it is of vital importance that a larger part of the world trade keeps being invoiced in us-dollars. The less dollars, the harder it becomes to manipulate the Dollar and to keep its role as reserve currency....
Russia has been walking exactly the same path as Saddam Hussein and Khadaffi. Because it would be too obvious and it is actually impossible for the CIA to organize a Libyan-style revolution in Russia, the Americans operating in the Financial Situation Room are reverting to financial weapons of mass destruction: paper markets, derivatives and Hollywood (the mainstream media). For the Americans it seems to be a win-win situation and makes the journey to home this Xmas a lot cheaper. At the same time it hurts all the opponents (BRICS) of the Petro- and US-Dollar which are (for no reason) trying to kill the role of the DOLLAR as reserve currency by making deals where the USA is not a partner.
Tuesday December 16, 2014 - Why would anybody pay interest on worthless fiat money?
Updated sections: World Stock Market Indexes , Gold & Silver Majors , Gold & Silver Juniors
With the zero interest rates we have today, this means that paper money has virtually no value because when this money can be issued in unlimited amounts it obviously has no value except for the intrinsic value of the paper.
Artificially lowered interest rates - the fundamental instrument of economic intervention in all the developed countries, practiced in the US by the Federal Reserve and in the EU by the ECB - are detrimental to Labor, whether Manual Labor or Management Labor, i.e., detrimental to both the working class and the middle class. Artificially Lowered Interest Rates Cause Stagnating Wages and Unemployment. (prof. Antal E. Fekete)
|Why would anybody pay interest on worthless fiat money!?
The coming financial calamity will involve hundreds of trillions of dollars in un-backed derivatives. If the derivative bubble pops, nobody knows what is going to happen, and it’s obvious it has to pop. It can’t just keep growing. Depending on who you read, some people say it is up to two quadrillion dollars. It’s virtual money, and it cannot keep going on.
|The largest class of creditors of any bank is the depositors.
Theoretically, depositors are protected by deposit insurance up to $250,000 in the U.S. and 100,000 euros in Europe. The FDIC fund has $46 billion, the last time I looked, to cover $4.5 trillion worth of deposits. There is also $280 trillion worth of derivatives that the five biggest banks in the U.S. are exposed to, and under the bankruptcy reform act of 2005, derivatives go first.
|How are you keeping your profits? Still holding worthless bank deposits because you're afraid the paper price of Gold will come down?...or have you come to appoint where you understand the risk ?!
So, these banks large are basically exempt from these new rules. They just snatch the collateral. So, if you had a big derivatives bust that brought down JP Morgan or Bank of America, there is no way there is going to be collateral left for the FDIC or for the secured depositors. This would include state and local governments. They all put their money in these big banks. So, even though we are protected by the FDIC, the FDIC is not going to have the money. . . . This makes it legal for these big 30 banks to take our money when they become insolvent. They are too-big-to-fail. This was supposed to avoid too-big-to-fail, but what it does is institutionalizes too-big-to-fail. They are not going to go down. They are going to take our money instead.”
Monday December 15, 2014 - Fracking is history at these energy price levels - Sooner or later this is gonna hurt the US-Dollar
Fracking is history at these priece levels. As oil prices slid a further this past week , closing at levels not seen since 2009, there are an ever-increasing number of countries at risk of default, recession and destabilization. With current global oil production outweighing demand, and the dollar continuing to move from strength to strength, foreign currencies are losing value, with the Euro falling to two year lows against the dollar. Meanwhile, fears are growing over slowing economic growth in both China, with weak import data, and Japan, with greater than expected third quarter shrinkage in its economy. Global markets are not a pretty sight at present and several big players in the energy scene find themselves in precarious positions with regards to both energy and economic security.
This is about High Order Capital Goods, Communicating Financial Vessels and China: China's stock mania decouples from economic reality. The stock boom comes as Chinese industry battles with massive overcapacity in everything from steel to shipbuilding, coal output, cement and solar panels China’s stock market boom has reached outright mania, with equities galloping higher at a parabolic rate, despite threats of a crackdown by regulators and the continued slowdown of the national economy. The Shanghai Composite Index has risen 32pc in the past six weeks, blowing through 3,000 to a three-and-a-half-year high even though corporate earnings are declining steeply.

The new Swift system or this is gonna hurt the US-Dollar badly... Sanctioned Russian banks begin testing national payment system next week. "The pilot project involves SMP Bank and Rossiya Bank, those for which the story is very critical and important. These are quite large banks," the head of the Russian National payment system (NPS) Vladimir Komlev said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV. The move comes as a part of Russia's ambitious initiative to move away from the Western dominance of its financial markets. Last month the Russian Central Bank said it would have its own international inter-bank payment system, an alternative to the global SWIFT network up and running by May 2015.
Gazprombank, Rosbank, Alfa Bank and Ural Bank for Reconstruction and Development are among eight other banks to join the pilot project. They were selected based on the size of business, location and technology platform, Komlev said. (Note they also developed their own CREDIT CARD system)
note: the US and the EU must be run by Morons...or is it maybe that they are just panicking!?
CME Implements Gold, Precious Metals Circuit Breakers Up To $400 Wide (Algorithms may become history once the law is changed.)

Friday December 12, 2014 - Oil shares have all fallen back on the bottom of their long term channels and those who have not are very close. Yields are unseen in history. Sales it is !
|What we see and what we have in the Oil & Energy sector is nothing more that a financial WAR and a battle of life and death for the US-Dollar.
Following video clip shows how bad the intelligence level is of the American financial analysts and mainstream media. It also proofs they don't have a clue about the problems in Ukraine, Russia, the Middle-East and they have not the slightest suspicion we are living a battle for the survival of the Dollar and the American society/economy. Really sad. The Americans have NO IDEA of what is going on internationally. The Mainstream media don't report about the ongoing financial war between Russia and the USA and the battle for survival of the US-Dollar.
Trader Rob Raymond of RCH Energy believes that just as we witnessed the popping of the housing bubble, we are in the midst of the popping of the energy bubble...
A new Study Claims US Shale Gas Quantities Grossly Exaggerated US government estimates of the amount of natural gas that can be extracted by fracking may be far too optimistic , according to a new study by the University of Texas (UT) at Austin. In 2013, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) issued a report saying that, according to its analysis, shale wells, which require fracking to release their gas, would be productive at current levels for “over 30 years,” that is, at least until 2040. But researchers from UT’s Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering say shale gas production may peak 20 years earlier, followed by a rapid decline in output. If the UT scientists are right and gas production begins to fall off around 2020, all those billions of dollars put into gas-based vehicles and infrastructure will have been wasted. The crash of the Oil prices below the marginal production price will speedup the process and bankruptcies will see that SUPPLY comes down.
Where do you keep your savings!? 5 Big Banks will Survive Next Financial Calamity-Everybody Else Bankrupt !
- xxxx, xxxxx and xxxxx are three majors which have been able to keep the mining price of Gold within low limits and they are a BUY
- note how the Oil correction has almost not affected the shares in the Natural Gas section...some of these equities are actually trading higher than before the oil correction.
- The ZAR - Euro looks TERRIBLY bad.
- xxxxx have eased back (or almost) to their long term support levels. NOW and soon is another opportunity to buy more.
- xxxx shares all sit on the BOTTOM of their trading zone and are a BUY at present level! (even for traders that is)

The Swiss franc was manipulated, Gold was,...and each time again it worked and nobody went to jail. So why not also rig the price of Oil!? After all with 1.4 quadrillion derivatives a lot can be done.
According to the BIS when discussing markets: "The highly abnormal is becoming uncomfortably normal. Central banks and markets have been pushing benchmark sovereign yields to extraordinary lows - unimaginable just a few years back.
There is something vaguely troubling when the unthinkable becomes routine." And now the routine of the unthinkable has forced Deutsche Bank to look at the unprecedented disconnect between the collapse in energy assets and the general market - which continues its hypnotized, low-volume levitation - and conclude that it makes absolutely no sense:
"We find current dislocation between deep distress in Energy assets and marginal reaction in broad market indexes to be inconsistent with each other. Either energy has to rebound noticeably, or it could pull broader market indexes lower. Who would have predicted oil prices in the sixty-dollar range a year ago? Something is not right about these markets. Don't get burned and watch out for as we head into 2015; ignore at your own peril.
Oil shares have all fallen back on the bottom of their long term channels and those who have not are very close. Yields are unseen in history. Sales it is !
- The xxxxxxr is on target and a sell signal is brewing. Expect a weaker xxxxx to push the xxxxx sector higher.
- The xxxx is oversold and a buy signal is in the make versus the xxxxxx.
- The xxxxx is oversold and a buy signal is in the make versus the xxxxx and the xxxxx. xxxxxxx is preparing a breakout.
- The xxxxxx is on target versus the xxxxxx and is a buy.
- The xxx has landed on a support zone versus the xxxx (positive for xxxx in general).
- xxxx expressed in xxxxx has broken out and the xxxxxx is a buy at present level.
- We also have a Breakout for xxxxx + price has broken through the 200 day EMA (bullish).
- We have a FALSE BREAKOUT (Bull trap) of the xxxxxx. Check the PF chart for the pattern as it looks EXACTLY as the PF chart of the xxxxx. Important because the xxxx is often the Canary in the Mineshaft for the xxxxx.
- Stop buying xxxxxxx for the time being and focus on the xxxxxx sector instead. Most xxxxx are breaking out and are a buy.
- The shares in the xxxxxx have fallen back on the BOTTOM of their Long Term trend channels = strong long term support levels !

Tuesday December 9, 2014 - no strike if you tax the rich (wealth & capital gain tax).
This is what the Democratic Majority DEMANDS : Hear, hear,....TAX the RICH and give us the money! If the Belgian government agrees to consider a capital gain and/or wealth tax , the liberal union will - as a compensation - call off the national strike planned for 15 December. Clear is that the Democratic Majority fails to understand that CAPITAL or WEALTH is accumulated LABOR and that by treating capital in this way the majority will destroy the economy. Worse is that it will take 3 to 4 generations before the situation can be corrected. Not very wise .....More than ever it is important to ensure that you arrange for a Permanent Residence in a fiscal friendlier country. Especially if you do not have to live permanently in this country. Act NOW! We can assist you.
|Those who worked hard and saved during their lifetime have become GAME!
We have PEAK Oil. Oil is a finite energy supply, and the demand for it is relatively inelastic with respect to price because it has few direct substitutes. That should mean the price of oil should never drop so sharply - ever. Yet, oil has fallen nearly 40% this year. Today the price of oil per barrel is too low to ultra-deep offshore (Nigeria, Angola, Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, Arctic projects), part of the Canadian oil sands and US shale oil (look at the graph of an oil company shale ...). It is 10 to 20% of world oil production is threatened (the present) and investments in exploration (the future). With the peak of production, this situation can not last more than a few months ...

Over the past year twice as many White people were killed by US police officers than Black people. Why then did the White Americans not protest? GARNER PROTESTS SPREAD ACROSS THE COUNTRY “Thousands gathered in New York Thursday for a second day of protests after a grand jury announced its decision not to indict the police officer involved in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner. Massive crowds of protesters demonstrated in Foley Square, in Lower Manhattan, as well as in major cities, including Chicago, Pittsburgh, Boston and Washington.

When the system collapses PRICE will come down but VALUE will not. At that time it will be important NOT to liquidate your positions. Even if we have a CRASH...Keep your securities registered in your name DIRECTLY with the company or with a transfer agent. Do it preferably in a country where the government guarantees the Transfer Agent and the bank. This CANNOT be achieved by keeping the shares with your bank. Remember that by keeping shares with a commercial bank, you only have A CLAIM on your own shares and the bank can use your shares as a collateral for its obligations.

Friday December 5, 2014 - it is not possible to regulate the economic activity by printing more or less money (QE-Tapering).
Updated sections: Natural Gas ,
This video proofs that Central Bankers belief that they can regulate the economic activity by creating more or less money. During decades this policy was tested in Japan... and although there is clear evidence that it does NOT work, they persist in applying it over and over again. The marginal effect of any additionally created unit of money DROPS constantly. This is true for ANY KIND OF MONEY. Also for gold. At one point, these forces even become NEGATIVE: i.e. the more money is printed, the worse its impact on the economic system (as is already the case in Japan). Because of the monetary policy (Quantitative Easing - printing money) we can - from now on - expect any moment that the forces of nature wake up the monster called Hyperinflation.
- just because Gold is so scarce and its mining marginal, this metal is extremely well fit to act as money. Just because of the very characteristics of gold, abuses are very hard, if possible at all.
- the video clip also explains the mechanics and the reason behind real estate bubbles.
Goldman Sachs and Obama played with matches and did start fires. Unfortunately not exactly the fires they had planned. The consequence not only affects the American Frackers but is also and again weakening the World Position of the US. Dollar.
"There’s so much Oil oversupply that Middle East crudes are now trading at discounts and it is not economical to bring over crudes from the U.S. anymore," said Tushar Tarun Bansal of consultancy FGE in Singapore. U.S. oil became uncompetitive against similar grades from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates after Gulf producers began dropping prices in August to maintain their market share in an oil market glut.
Thursday December 4, 2014 - U.C. - Beginning of 2016 banks of 51 countries will automatically exchange all your financial information with each other.
Banks in Portugal, Spain, Italy, and the UK have begun restricting how much customers can withdraw. Banks in the United States have begun restricting their customers' international wire transfers And of course, banks in Cyprus completely froze people out of their accounts. Everyone from the International Monetary Fund to leading Harvard economists have been calling for capital controls (which could lock your money inside a failing banking system). "Wealth taxes" are also being proposed... again by the IMF, as well as several central banks around the world. Poland nationalized private pension funds last year, and the new US MyRA program has been set up for you to loan your retirement funds directly to Uncle Sam. Thanks to FATCA and International agreements, as soon as 2016 banks of 51 countries will automatically exchange financial information with each other.
- The days of the Dollar as dominant currency are counted.
- The USA is no more the dominant military power in the world: they still have the military power but cannot afford to use it.
- The police is not there to SERVE and PROTECT the people but rather to protect those who are in power.
- Elections don't make no difference. The structural system is so deep en-rooted that whatever party is in charge, the result is the same...debt and future obligations rule politics.
- Your bank is not safe. Not are they unsafe but even if it is safe, you're sure to loose money on tax and inflation adjusted bases by holding your savings there.
- Bank deposits are just part of commercial banks’ capital structure, and also that they are far from the most senior portion of that structure.

- expect bearish action for the US-dollar to start between XMas and New Year (except if we have more war in Europe)
- we have a MAJOR breakout for Gold as soon as the Euro price breaks up through the € 990 resistance level.
Wednesday December 3, 2014 -The financial market is filled with fools and the battle for truth and justice has begun.
The Damp Rag, having driven millions of Europeans into poverty and unemployment, hits the Jackpot ! If you're Belgian, it's time to be ashamed and maybe throw up. Former European Council President Herman van Rompuy will receive around $900,000 over the next 3 years as a "transition allowance" for doing absolutely nothing in retirement. Van Rompuy will pay a reduced "EU Community" tax rate, considerably lower than the Belgian income tax rate on his ill-gotten gains. [Van Rompuy is better paid than Obama]
When Obama took office in 2009, the national debt was at just $6.3 trillion up from $3 trillion at the beginning of Bush’s tenure in 2001. Bush doubled the national dent in just 8 years. Obama is set to triple the national debt in less than 8 years. More than $7 trillion of additional US national debt will have been accumulated over the 8 year duration of Obama's two presidencies, which is more than the accumulated U.S. national debt of all previous U.S. presidents combined.
|The Total U.S. Debt to GDP ratio is now over 300%. Such debt levels ordinarily give rise to debt crises and currency crises.
The U.S. debt position increasingly has all the hallmarks of a Ponzi scheme. To this national debt, one must add astronomical expenses of more than $200 trillion of U.S. government unfunded liabilities such as medicare, medicaid and social security. Household debt--including mortgages, credit cards, auto loans and student loans -- remains close to $12 trillion. [click on the picture for the life figure]
Silver is up over 17% from its intraday lows today – this is the biggest positive swing since decades. Indian silver demand was so strong this year (because of the import restrictions on Gold) , that it even produced a significant draw-down of U.K. silver inventories. Matter-a-fact, India had to access silver from China and Russia because available supplies from the U.K. were not sufficient. The LBMA (London Bullion Metal Exchange) itself doesn't hold any silver stocks, but its member companies do. These stocks may be unallocated or allocated (often allocated to ETF holdings) and GFMS survey these stock levels once a year ahead of the silver survey in May.
This is not just slowing down, no this is playing with matches in an oil field. Unless energy (crude oil) makes a very significant immediate recovery fracking is history..and oil prices will go up again with a revenge.
|If the Swiss are 'all-in' in favor of more debasement, I think this is a very powerful signal that we are headed for hyperinflation on a global basis in the not-too distant future."
At a time where many countries repatriate their national Gold, the crooks in Ukraine managed to ship all the national Gold to the USA ! Following to a stunning announcement by the head of Ukraine’s central bank, Valeriya Gontareva, we learned that (virtually) all of Ukraine’s gold was gone. It was only a matter of time before Ukraine’s people finally got angry and demanded some answers. That time came earlier today when as Interfax.ua reported "a Kiev-based court has instructed Kiev prosecutors to bring an action against National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Governor Valeriya Gontareva on charges of abuse of power or misuse of office to obtain illegal profit, the Vesti newspaper reported on Tuesday." [The bulk of Ukraine's gold was flown from Ukraine to an undisclosed place in the USA when the troubles in Ukraine started. If gold is worthless, barbaric metal, WHY then did they trouble themselves in sending an American cargo plane to Ukraine at all ?]
Tuesday December 2, 2014 - This is how Gold feels about the Swiss NO : price is up by $ 80 !?

Switzerland is one of the countries which has between 1993 and 2014 sold most of its Gold holdings. Russia and China are the largest buyers. (where are the brains...? certainly not in Switzerland!). Today Gold did send a CLEAR SIGNAL to all those (Authorities, Bankers, Mainstream Media,...) living in LALA-land ! Those amongst you who still don't understand what is happening NEVER will...not even when Gold is trading at $ 10,000 per troy ounce.
There is NO economic REVIVAL in the USA and the Depression gets worse ! So much for all those on planet Earth who still believe the PROPAGANDA sold by the Authorities and their Vassals, the Mainstream Media. The National Retail Federation just reported absolutely abysmal numbers: sales during the four-day Thanksgiving holiday period crashed by a whopping 11% from $57.4 billion to $50.9 billion, confirming what everyone but the Fed knows by now: the US middle class is being obliterated, and that key driver of 70% of US economic growth is in the worst shape it has been since the Lehman collapse, courtesy of 6 years of Fed's ruinous central planning.

This is a world UPSIDE-DOWN. Nominal Interest rates are at a historic low level. Real rates are negative..and yet the economy continues to slide further into a depression. Communicating financial vessels will lead us to higher stock market indexes until an accident happens...
|You cannot tax business at no cost, like you cannot create money at no cost.
Government bonds across the euro region rose, sending yields from Austria to Spain to all-time lows, on speculation the European Central Bank will expand its asset-purchase program to include sovereign bonds. Germany's securities climbed as a report showed investment in the nation fell last quarter, putting the strength of Europe's largest economy at risk. ECB Executive Board member Benoit Coeure said yesterday the central bank won't make a hasty decision to add more stimulus and will hinge any measures on economic data. The ECB's policies already include purchasing covered bonds and asset-backed securities. The Netherlands sold 10-year debt at a record-low auction yield today.
Government intervention does work....in achieving exactly the OPPOSITE of what is seeked. Sweden is a text book example that government intervention and socialism doesn't work. (click to enlarge). France applied the same idiocy (60% of GNP is generated by the Government) This country is now bankrupt. Debt also doesn't work. The higher DEBT, the lower GDP. Even with extremely low nominal interest rates (and negative real rates) an economic system cannot be stimulated. Mainly Government profits from Low or negative interest rates as it allows them to survive longer.
Opponents of a Gold controlled monetary system blame Gold for the Great Depression of the 1930's. Today, even without a Gold standard, the economy sits in a depression...Who are they gonna blame this time?
The Gold-rigging-game is coming to its end while riggers are being sued. HSBC, Goldman Rigged Metals' Prices for Years, Suit Says. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) and HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) were sued in New York over claims they conspired for eight years to manipulate prices for the precious metals platinum and palladium in what plaintiffs' lawyers say is the first class-action lawsuit of its kind in the U.S. Standard Bank Group Ltd. and a metals unit of BASF SE (BAS), the world's largest chemical company, were also sued. The four companies used inside information about client purchases and sale orders to profit from price movements for the metals used in products ranging from jewelry to cars, according to a complaint filed yesterday in Manhattan federal court.
|The DRAMATIC ACCUMULATION will result in FIRE works....
More and more countries decide to repatriate their Gold holdings. They probably do so because they assume Gold is worthless, barbaric and has no value whatsoever!? If the Swiss vote YES, the Swiss National Bank would be forced to buy the equivalent of around 70 per cent of total global gold production for the next three years if the referendum being held in Switzerland next Monday is passed. Gold prices could easily double within a matter of weeks. Recent polls have suggested an early surge in the 'yes' vote to 42 per cent has declined in recent days. Note that french politicians now also want to repatriate their gold.
A Gold backed monetary system does control money supply and does restrict the Central Bankers. This is EXACTLY what it should do...Note how starting in 2008, the Swiss have added THIN AIR.... to their balance sheet...under a gold standard such is simply impossible. With Switzerland edging toward an important referendum on its gold holdings, high-profile critics and advocates have added their voices to the argument. Meanwhile, the country's citizens have been quietly increasing their own personal reserves. Russia’s central bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina told the Russian lower house of parliament that the central bank had purchased 150 metric tons of gold this year, nearly double the 77 tons purchased in 2013.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries considered a cut of 5 percent in output, but in the end, they did not alter their output. OPEC’s production will probably increase, unofficially, following today’s meeting, in a desperate search for a little more revenue. The Saudi’s have no interest in cutting their supply to help rivals. Moreover, their unofficial goal, presumably shared by other countries in today’s closed-door meeting, is to knock back US shale oil production. Marginal production price of US shale oil is $ 75 , therefore American Shale Oil producers are already in the RED.
