Gold and Silver Demand Beginning to Undo Government Intervention

I’m just perfectly content stacking my physical gold and silver because I know in the end, these uneconomic systems that are just a sham and illusion like this, they just can’t go on forever. And we’ll patiently wait for that end to come. Though I’d love to see that happen next week, I think there’s reason to be optimistic. Then we’ll just see what 2017 holds.

What If The Market Crash Is as Rigged as Everything Else?

There is an almost touching faith that markets are rigged when they loft higher, but unrigged when they crash. Who’s to say this crash isn’t rigged? A few things about this “crash” (11% decline from all time highs now qualifies as a “crash”) don’t pass the sniff test. Take your pick–here’s three good reasons to engineer a “crash” that benefits the few at the expense of the many.

Will China Decide to "Beggar its Neighbours" and Play The Gold Card?

Will China decide to “beggar its neighbors”, the US and Europe? The only way that the US might counter the Chinese move, would be to revalue gold in Dollars; which is to say, the US would have to effect a corresponding devaluation of the Dollar against gold, to nullify the effect of the Chinese devaluation of the Yuan against gold.

Is Russia Planning a Gold-Based Currency?

Repercussions of Russia on a gold-exchange standard would be immense. A gold standard would be politically appealing, transforming ruble to a formidable currency & reducing outflows significantly. As a pro-gold stance is anti-dollar, speculation about how US would react raises questions of whether an all-out currency war would follow.

Rise of the Petro-Yuan & the Slow Erosion of Dollar Hegemony

Linking the dollar to international oil trading was key to creating a new version of dollar primacy (“dollar hegemony 2.0”) & by extension, in financing another forty years of American hegemony. With the rise of the “petroyuan,” movement towards a less dollar-centric currency regime in international energy markets is already underway.

Will US succeed in Breaking Russia to maintain Dollar Hegemony?

We are witness to the greatest struggle of our age – the battle to maintain global dollar hegemony & with it US economic, military & political dominance of the entire planet & this struggle is now coming to a head. US debts are now at such levels that if the US dollar loses its reserve currency status, the US economy will implode.

The Rise of the Petroyuan and the Slow Erosion of Dollar Hegemony

For the last 40 years, a pillar of dollar primacy has been the greenback’s dominant role in international energy markets. Today, China is leveraging its rise as an economic power & as the most important incremental market for hydrocarbon exporters in the Persian Gulf & the former Soviet Union to circumscribe dollar dominance in global energy.

Will there be an Epic (final) US Dollar Rally?

The overall down-trend of the US dollar is clear. But one must remember that counter-trends are typically far more powerful than many expect – and many counter-trends last far longer than expected as well. Let’s discuss the factors that could conceivably bring about the mother of all counter-rallies in the USD.

Is This the Beginning of the End for the Dollar?

While the notion of the dollar losing its status as world reserve currency had appeared muted for some time given the lack of alternatives, it is now gaining credence, with calls in China for a new reserve. Gold will play a crucial role as a stabilizer & offset the dollar decline by a higher gold price.
