All around the world, lawmakers are making an urgent push to eliminate the use of physical cash.

It's not only the recent demonetization in India - it's also the Western nations that want to eliminate big denomination bills, including the U.S. and Europe.

See who declared war - and who is going to get caught in the crossfire - in today's "can't miss" infographic for The Money Project.

BIG MOVEMENT AHEAD IN THE SILVER MARKET… Serious Trouble In The Paper Markets


Posted by Steve St. Angelo - SRSrocco Report

on Wednesday, 18 January 2017 07:39

The Silver Market will experience a significant trend change in the future due the unraveling of the paper markets.  Already we are witnessing a lot of political turmoil and havoc as President-elect Donald Trump gets ready to take over the White House in the next few days.

It’s also logical to assume the policy changes President-elect Trump wants to make will cause serious ramifications to the highly leveraged debt-based fiat monetary system… whether he realizes it or not.

Craig over at TFMetalsReport.com recently interviewed Paul Myclhresstabout the huge problem the Chinese government is dealing with as they liquidate Dollars to prop up their banking and economic system.  I highly recommend listening to that interview if you haven’t.

Thus, the continued liquidation of U.S. Dollar Reserves by China and other countries is probably the reason for the ongoing decline in International Reserves covered in Hugo Salinas Price’s newest article, The Further Decline In International Reserves:

PLATA-International-Reserves-JAN-13-2017

Over the past 29 months, the decline in Reserves took place at a rate of about $42 billion dollars a month. At this rate, by the end of 2017 International Reserves will likely decline by another $504 billion dollars, to $10.31 Trillion, which will increase the decline from the peak in 2014 to 14.31%.

As we can see from Hugo’s chart above, countries continue to liquidate their official reserves (mostly U.S. Dollar reserves) to prop up their financial and economic systems.  This is a very BAD SIGN… likely to get much worse in the future.

Gold update and more …


Posted by Larry Edelson - Money & Markets

Last week I told you about gold’s long-term prospects: $5,000 at least.

And if you’ve been following my shorter-term forecasts for gold, then you know that they’ve been spot on. I’ve been calling for an extended short-term cycle low — which we got on December 15 at $1,124.30 in the February 2017 futures contract — and then a rally.

That rally is now underway, and this past Friday gold hit as high as $1,207.20.

Here was my previous AI Neural Net forecast for gold, then I’ll show you an update:

You can see the rally through January 12 on this chart. You can also see how the rally should stair-step higher in mid-April before a mild pullback sets in.

How high can gold go by then? Not a whole lot higher. Maybe $1,350 to $1,400.

Now, here’s my latest AI chart for gold: The shape is changing a bit, as it should be, but the overall forecast remains the same: A rally in April before pulling back. Note that this chart is a tad behind the action, since my live forecasts and AI charts are reserved for members of my paying services.
