This article is not politically motivated – the writer has no political agenda or affiliation – and the motivation for producing it is to enable you to understand the pivotal role that gold will play in thwarting the Empire’s imperialist ambitions, and how this means that the price of gold – and silver – will skyrocket, and sooner than many think possible. When you know that this is set to happen, and you understand the key reasons why, you will be able to position yourself to profit greatly from this profound and seismic global shift.

Copper New Bull Trend? A correction first makes sense...

After what appears as a 5-wave rally; a correction lower would make sense.  But, it also appears a new bull trend may be underway.

King-World-News-Look-At-This-Shocking-Undervaluation-In-The-Gold-Silver-Markets-864x400 cThe futures were higher overnight, although I couldn’t tell you why, but it didn’t take long for those gains to be erased and the market was slightly weaker in the early going. This morning I took the opportunity afforded by the bounce over the last couple of days to reload some of the puts that I sold Friday morning. I only bring that up to emphasize the point that, for the first time in ages, I have begun trading around on the short side, however minutely.

Governments to Control Large Cash Transactions

Wolfgang Schaeuble 1-15-2016

I have been pointing out the crisis we face moving forward. The gist of this is the total fiscal mismanagement of government for which we, the people, are always blamed. This hunt for taxes has led down the path of arguments for eliminating currency. While people think Bitcoin is an answer, they do not understand government’s hunt for taxes no less the lack of a true rule of law. The government need only pass a law that anyone who fails to report what they have in Bitcoin is criminal and they get to confiscate all your assets.

Switzerland has its “wealth tax” which they argue is nothing just 0.02%. However, it requires you to report all assets worldwide. They then know precisely what you have and it is merely one vote away at anytime to raise the tax or impose criminal penalties for failure to report everything. Yet, once Switzerland has that info, under G20 they must share it with all other governments.

We have stood by and watched India cancel all high denomination notes. Try walking around with €500 notes in Europe and they look at you funny or won’t accept them. ATM machines have been reduced in Europe to taking a maximum of €200 in cash at best. This is all th hunt for taxes because government cannot function ethically no less morally.

Now the German Federal Minister of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, is proposing to control all large cash transactions claiming this will prevent black money transactions and money laundering. Of course, they see these two issues not as typical crime like drugs, but tax avoidance.

Learn Your Market History Now Or Be Forced To Learn It The Hard Way Later

George Santayana was noted as saying:

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”

As human beings, we all have a limited life span. And, as one generation fades away, we often see the next generation growing in its shadow, but forgetting the lessons learned by those who came before them. Sadly, it is a fact of life. 

Today, we see the stock market and certain assets like Bitcoin rising to heights never imagined by market participants even 5 years ago. Yet, we believe the reasons for the rise in price are different today than they were in generations past.

Many analysts and market participants are certain that it is purely due to central bank’s actions that we are creating a new bubble. In fact, someone forwarded me what some deem as “analysis,” which stated that “bubbles are a symptom of central bank monetary policy.” And, sadly, many market participants believe this to be true. 

Unfortunately, too many are willing to adopt what they read as truth, without testing it through the prism of intellectual honesty. So, let me present you a question to test the ultimate “truth” presented about central c22cb6033f069963e4a07f627e3e9627banks and bubbles: What central bank caused what is considered to be the first speculative bubble in modern history - “Tulipmania?” 

For those who are unfamiliar with history, in the 17th century, which is regarded as the Dutch Golden Age, contract prices for tulip bulbs reached extraordinarily high levels and then dramatically collapsed in February 1637. At the peak of “tulipmania,” a single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsworker. 

Yet, there was no central bank that was involved in this event. And, amazingly, this has been the case study for what we deem to be a “bubble” within markets. Moreover, it has been determined that this bubble was caused by the “madness of the crowd,” as coined by Charles Mackay. So, again, no where do I see any central bank involvement in this case study of a market bubble.

You see, Mackay concluded that crowds often behave irrationally, especially when dealing with financial markets. This irrationality of the market is what causes bubbles to occur. While we may want to view a central bank as the “rational reason” for such bubbles, the ultimate point is that there is nothing rational about bubbles. Therefore, rational reasons are immaterial, if you really think through the issue carefully. 

Unfortunately, most are too willing to adopt the commonly held fallacies about financial markets rather than engage in any independent thought. So, they simply propagate the commonly held fallacies, which causes them to be even more widely adopted by the masses, as the great majority of the public will never test these perspectives through a prism of intellectual honesty and truth.
