Oil Price Volatility Off The Charts - What Explains The Incredible Volatility?

Oil prices are at their lowest levels in more than a decade, but the daily up & down moves are leaving investors with whip lash. What explains the volatility? What is new is the instability in the financial markets. China’s slowing growth; Emerging market currencies crashed; Fed rate hikes may or may not be forthcoming, etc. This all adds up to a period of incredible volatility.

Steve Forbes on the Presidential Race, Fed Recklessness and Gold

In terms of gold, unless you’re a jeweler, I see it as an insurance policy. It doesn’t build new factories or things like that. What it is, is insurance that if things really go wrong you’ve got something that will balance your portfolio. Not that you’re going to make quick money on it, but it’s like an insurance policy. You hope it doesn’t have to be used, but if it does you’ve got it.

Is the Federal Reserve Finally Being Forced to Consider Main Street?

How can the Federal Reserve help Main Street? The conventional wisdom is that zero-interest rates help Main Street by lowering the cost of borrowing. Zero-interest rates incentivize speculation, not investment & have also stripped savers of billions of dollars in interest. They can lower the cost of commodities & goods by strengthening the U.S. dollar via raising rates.

Gold Is Exceptionally Cheap At The Moment

Gold is exceptionally cheap at the moment because the radical monetary policies practised by the world’s leading central banks have led to a resurgence of confidence in financial assets and the resultant multiyear rally & an egregious mispricing of risk by investors at large.

Lies You Will Hear As The Economic Collapse Progresses

Ever since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd & ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets & as the economic collapse situation becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase. Its a common tactic by the establishment elite to string the public along with false hopes so that they do not prepare while the system crumbles.

Keeping the Low Interest Rates Bubble-Boom Going

A normalization of interest rates, after years of excessively low interest rates, is not possible without a likely crash in production and employment. If the Fed goes ahead with its plan to raise interest rates, times will get tough in the world’s economic and financial system. Why then do the decision makers at the Fed want to increase rates?

The U.S. Economy Slows to Stall Speed

The US economy is slowing to stall speed, the point when gravity overcomes the lift provided by central bank free money. This long-term weakening of the economy is the direct result of financialization & the Federal Reserve’s policy of propping up impaired debt with more debt & constantly bringing demand forward with zero interest rates.

Silver and Gold: Opportunity and Protection - Why Now?

Silver and gold, at current prices are an excellent investment, but more importantly, they are insurance & protection against the probability that our financial system will go critical as a consequence of years of QE, Zero Interest Rates, massive fiat money creation & deficit spending that has generated about $200 Trillion of global debt.
