“The G-20 Financial Massacre”, Instability in Major Currency Markets?

Global financial storm is coming!

Global financial storm is coming!

  • “The G-20 Financial Massacre”, Instability in Major Currency Markets? 
    by Bill Holter, http://www.globalresearch.ca/ 
    Very “quietly” the world’s 20 largest economies will meet in Brisbane, Australia later this coming week. I use the word “quietly” because here in the U.S. almost no mention of the upcoming meeting has been made. I even searched for news on the event and almost could find none. Strange?
    -
    Well yes and no, quite strange because it surely is big news especially with all that has been going on but not strange because here in the U.S. we must keep a happy face on things which very well may not be the outcome this time around. I wasn’t sure how I was going to write this piece but I guess it’s just easiest to tell you what I think the result will be and then explain why.
    -
    In my opinion, once this meeting is over next Sunday all hell could break loose financially. I say this because much has already been put into place ahead of time and it is my expectation the U.S. and her dollar will at a minimum be taken off of “the top shelf” or at least be pushed back from the front. Let me put forth some of the many available dots and see if they can’t be connected.

    -
    First, if you remember last year’s summit, president Obama was not pictured in the center as the U.S. has always been at nearly all meetings such as these traditionally. If I recall, I believe I commented that he was positioned on one of the ends and I took it as “not a very good sign” at the time. This time around, president Obama will arrive as a “neutered” force after the Democrats lost total control of Congress. This fact is not lost on the world, they now know president Obama has no collateral nor clout left and will be the lamest duck president in history. One could argue this point but he has lost Congress while having the lowest public approval rating of any U.S. president.
    -
    We also know that China has been making business deals, setting up renminbi currency hubs, and either preparing for or actually doing trade in local currencies or their own all over the world. The Chinese have been forming these deals WITHOUT the use of dollars. Russia, who for the last 5-6 months have been the focus of “Western sanctions” have also been active in doing trade deals, particularly with China. If you recall, Russia achieved their “Holy Grail” gas deal earlier this year with China worth an estimated $400 billion.
    -
    Mr. Putin announced this past Friday a 2nd deal with China which will further intertwine the two nations in trade. Please also remember that Russia has recently made moves on Arctic energy reserves while U.S. “majors” such as Exxon/Mobil will not be able to participate in unless they break Mr. Obama’s sanction rules. Are the sanctions “good” for American business?
    -
    Before the upcoming G-20 summit there will also be two other meetings scheduled early this week, APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Coordination) and also a BRICS meeting. President Xi of China released a statement this past Sunday regarding the upcoming APEC meeting  by saying “China wants to live in harmony with all its neighbors”.
    -
    Please understand that this is not just a “flowery” comment, it is the way China thinks and does business. The world understands this and also understands how the U.S. has been doing business for years. The BRICS “pre G-20 meeting” has already announced goals including the launch of new BRICS bank, its funding and also the restructuring of IMF quotas.

    -
    I would like to speak of “the timing setup” before going any further. There will be these two pre meetings and then the G-20 meeting itself… and also another piece of breaking news which I find VERY curious! It has been announced out of London that UBS has agreed to a fine for …wait for it …wait for it…”manipulating the prices of gold and silver!!!

China Hoarding Gold to Challenge U.S. Dollar?

China_Gold

  • China hoarding gold to challenge U.S. dollar? 
    by Eric McWhinnie, The Cheat Sheet, http://www.usatoday.com/ 
    In a world filled with fiat currencies, how important is gold’s role in the financial system? Proponents often view the precious metal as a hedge against economic chaos, while critics typically claim gold is hardly more than an unproductive rock. Interestingly, some countries appear to believe gold is quite important, and one former Fed chair explains why.
    -
    Alan Greenspan, who served at the helm of the Federal Reserve for nearly two decades, recently penned an op-ed for the Council on Foreign Relations discussing gold and its possible role in China, the world’s second-largest economy. He notes that if China converted only a “relatively modest part of its $4 trillion foreign exchange reserves into gold, the country’s currency could take on unexpected strength in today’s international financial system.”
    -
    Greenspan also believes the downside risks for China stockpiling gold are limited, at least from a pure investment point of view. “It would be a gamble, of course, for China to use part of its reserves to buy enough gold bullion to displace the United States from its position as the world’s largest holder of monetary gold,” he wrote. “But the penalty for being wrong, in terms of lost interest and the cost of storage, would be modest.”

UBS To Settle Gold/Silver Manipulation Charges!

Beware_The_banksters_Cartoon

  • UBS To Settle Gold/Silver Manipulation Charges! 
    by http://investmentresearchdynamics.com/ 
    Intrinsic currencies like gold and silver, for example, are acceptable without a 3rd party guarantee.  – Alan Greenspan, (LINK)
    -
    The Financial Times is reporting that UBS has agreed to settle charges against it by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority that it engaged in the manipulation of the gold and silver markets.  While it may come as a surprise to chart wranglers like Trader Dan or interminably hot air windbags like Dennis Gartman and Martin Armstrong that gold and silver are manipulated by the big bullion banks, UBS has de facto admitted to such illegal activity.
    -
    This comes on the heels of a £1.5 billion pound ($2.4 billion) settlement agreement (to be announced Wednesday) that includes UBS, Barclays, Citigroup, HSBC, JP Morgan and RBS connected to charges of foreign exchange market rigging.
    -
    If these banks are rigging forex trading, it means that they are de facto rigging gold and silver.  Why?  Just ask Alan Greenspan:    “Gold is a currency. It is still, by all evidence, a premier currency. No fiat currency, including the dollar, can match it…Gold has a monetary characteristic which is intrinsic.”
    -
    I’m wondering if part of the $40 move higher in gold on Friday was driven by insiders – i.e. the banks – who knew that the UBS gold/silver manipulation settlement deal was going to be announced by the FT today (Sunday, November 9).

Gerald Celente: World is in a Currency War and Heading Towards WORLD WAR 3!

  • Published on Nov 7, 2014
    GERALD CELENTE – World is in a CURRENCY WAR and Heading Towards WORLD WAR 3

    Gerald Celente, publisher of the Trends Journal tells us where he thinks the next military threat for the US will be and what’s in store for the economic relationship between the US and Russia If there’s one thing that should be clear, it’s that nothing the government or their banking partners have done to solve the economic crisis has been for your benefit. They’ve enriched themselves, yet again, on the backs of the American people.
    -
    All the while, they’ve told us that everything is getting better. But anyone who’s paying attention know that nothing of the sort has happened. We continue to shed jobs. Hundreds of thousands of people are still losing their homes. Personal debt is rapidly approaching 2007 levels. The U.S. government has borrowed more money than what we can ever hope to repay. What will it take to change the course of the future? As America, the world superpower, gears up to elect its commander-in-chief, each candidate touts his leadership experience; Obama the Osama Slayer vs. Romney the Corporate Commando. Each lists his credentials, saying in effect, “this is why I should lead and why you should follow your leader.”
    -
    There is no “We the People” until “I the Person” is willing to stand up and speak for himself or herself. Paul Craig Roberts – former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, former editor of the Wall Street Journal, listed by Who’s Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world, PhD economist – wrote an article yesterday about the build up of hostilities between the U.S. and Russia titled, simply: “War Is Coming”. In the article, Roberts notes: As reported by Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge, the Russian response to the extra-legal ruling of a corrupt court in the Netherlands, which had no jurisdiction over the case on which it ruled, awarding $50 billion dollars from the Russian government to shareholders of Yukos, a corrupt entity that was looting Russia and evading taxes, is telling. Asked what Russia would do about the ruling, an advisor to President Putin replied, “There is a war coming in Europe.” Do you really think this ruling matters?”
    -
    In January, well-known economist Nouriel Roubini tweeted from the gathering of the rich and powerful at the World Economic Forum in Davos: Former Goldman Sachs technical analyst Charles Nenner – who has made some big accurate calls, and counts major hedge funds, banks, brokerage houses, and high net worth individuals as clients – saysthere will be “a major war”, which will drive the Dow to 5,000. Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan (and many world leaders) admitted that the Iraq war was really about oil, and former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill says that Bush planned the Iraq war before 9/11. And see this and this. Libya, Syria, Iran and Russia are all oil-producing countries as well … We’re in the middle of a global currency war – i.e. a situation where nations all compete to devalue their currencies the most in order to boost exports. Brazilian president Rousseff said in 2010: Given that China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa have just joined together to create a $100 billion bank based in China, and that more and more trades are being settled in Yuan or Rubles – instead of dollars – the currency war is hotting up. What happened to [Libya’s] Mr. Gaddafi, many speculate the real reason he was ousted was that he was planning an all-African currency for conducting trade. The same thing happened to him that happened to Saddam because the US doesn’t want any solid competing currency out there vs the dollar. You know Gaddafi was talking about a gold dinar.

Leaders of BRICS Countries to Hold Negotiations Before G20 Summit!

BRICS-Logo

  • Considering the fact that the Russian Ruble is under constant attack by the west, it should come as no surprise should the BRICS decides counter-measures. As many as 100+ nations have agreed to the return to the gold standard. The announcement was supposed to have been made in Feb 2014. But the United States refused to comply and instead started a few wars: Ukraine, ISIS(ISIL) terrorism in Iraq and Syria … ie “F*** You!”
    -
  • The message from Russia and China (BRICS alliance) is very clear: an all out assault of the western global hegemony. Total replacement: BRICS Development Bank to replace IMF / World Bank, alternative Russo-SWIFT to do away with Anglo-SWIFT, BRICS Central Bank (Gold Backed), Gold Trade Settlement system instead of USD, Ruble-Yuan oil settlement instead of USD … etc. The question is whether they will up their schedule from Feb 19, 2015 Chinese New Year period to much earlier, for an announcement on Gold revaluation and Gold Trade Settlement system. Ie. Bye bye USD! Bye bye Gold/silver price suppression.

  • Leaders of BRICS countries to hold negotiations before G20 summit! 
    by http://rbth.co.uk/ 
    The leaders of the BRICS countries will meet before the G20 summit in Brisbane, Australia, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said. 
    -
    “The main task is to reach agreements on the main issues on the agenda of the G20 summit. Specifically, the meeting will address the implementation of the decision to launch the new BRICS Development Bank and the pool of contingent currency reserves with a total capital of $200 billion, which was mentioned in the previous summit,” Ushakov told a briefing on Friday.
    -
    Ushakov said special attention will be given at the BRICS meeting to issues relating to the reform of international financial institutions, specifically, redistribution of IMF quotas.
    -
    “The BRICS countries favor prompt implementation of the 2010 agreements as the most just and meeting the modern economic reality,” he said. Ushakov said the meeting will also address international issues, specifically, the intensification of the interaction between the BRICS countries in the settlement of regional conflicts, issues relating to the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, counterterrorism, drug threat, and international information security.
    -
    Ushakov reiterated that Russia plans to give attention to trade expansion and increasing technological and industrial cooperation.
    -
    The BRICS countries create almost 30% of the world’s GDP ($15.4 trillion) and make up the world’s largest market because some 3 billion people (40% of the planet’s population) live in these countries.
    -
    Ushakov said the gold and currency reserves of the BRICS countries are approaching $5 trillion and the amount of mutual trade within BRICS had almost doubled in the past five years, from $170 billion to $300 billion. Ushakov reiterated that the upcoming BRICS meeting is especially important to Russia because Russia is the next chair of the organization. “The next BRICS summit will be held in Ufa on July 8-9, 2015, simultaneously with the SCO summit,” he said.

Physical Gold Shortage Worst In Over A Decade: GOFO Most Negative Since 2001 !

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold rules!”

  • Physical Gold Shortage Worst In Over A Decade: GOFO Most Negative Since 2001 ! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com 
    The last time there was an systemic physical gold shortage was in July 2013. It is then that, for the first time in 5 years, the 1-month Gold forward offered rate, or GOFO, went negative. We said
    -
    Today, something happened that has not happened since the Lehman collapse: the 1 Month Gold Forward Offered (GOFO) rate turned negative, from 0.015% to -0.065%, for the first time in nearly 5 years, or technically since just after the Lehman bankruptcy precipitated AIG bailout in November 2011. And if one looks at the 3 Month GOFO, which also turned shockingly negative overnight from 0.05% to -0.03%, one has to go back all the way to the 1999 Washington Agreement on gold, to find the last time that particular GOFO rate was negative.
    -
    Fast forward to today, when as noted over the past week there has been a massive shortage of precious metals – most notably silver which as of this moment is indefinitely unavailable at the US Mint - as a result of the tumble in the paper price, and following 8 days of sliding and negative 1 month GOFO rates, today the physical metal shortage surged, as can be seen by not only the first negative 6 month GOFO rate since last summer’s much publicized gold shortage when China was gobbling up every piece of shiny yellow rock available for sale, but a 1 month GOFO of -0.1850%: the most negative it has been since 2001!

Fabian Calvo: World Reserve Currency in Line for Next Crash!

  • Fabian Calvo: World Reserve Currency in Line for Next Crash! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 
    Real estate expert Fabian Calvo says forget about the Fed’s recent announcement that it was ending its QE, or money printing program. Calvo contends, “Anyone who thinks the Fed is not somehow fueling the money printing through currency swaps taking place in Japan or in Europe right now is just fooling themselves.  This economy has not gotten any better. The only thing that’s changed is the unprecedented scale of the money printing that is being injected into the economy.”  
    -
    So, why is the U.S. dollar gaining in value against other currencies?  Calvo says, “I actually think the dollar rising is another huge manipulation forward, and I think it is a last ditch effort by the Fed to keep the dollar as the world reserve currency.  So, that way, you will have a lot of people with this race towards the bottom which will continue to devalue their currency in order to make their exports cheaper.  Ultimately, this ends really, really badly.  I don’t really believe this so-called bull run in the dollar is anything but fabricated, just like the rise in stocks or the rise in real estate prices.  I think Japan unveiled, just last week, historic quantitative easing. . . . It’s unprecedented in the history of modern economics.  Japan will go down as well as all of these other currencies that are being printed into nonexistence.”

    -
    As far as recent bad news coming from the U.S. housing market and recession fears in Europe, Calvo says, “I think this is part of the conditioning and setting the precedent for the Fed to continue to inject liquidity around the world, particularly in the West.” Calvo, whose company buys and sells $100 million in real estate annually, goes on to predict, “I think when the next crash happens, it’s not just going to be the stock market or the bond market that’s going to be on the line. It’s literally going to be the world reserve currency on the line.  That’s what I talk about in my book ‘The Global Economic Reset.’ The West and the western banking systems are doing everything they can, and they know that event is coming.  They are doing everything they can to control it before it becomes completely unraveled.”

German Precious Metal Dealers Report Huge Run on Silver Coins!

Silver Eagle coin. Going ... going ... gone soon!

Silver Eagle coin. Going … going … gone soon!

  • German Precious Metal Dealers Report Huge Run on Silver Coins! 
    by  
    Precious metal dealers in Germany have literally been run down after the latest slump in gold and silver. Wholesalers already expect deferred deliveries.
    -
    The latest plunge in gold and silver late last week has led to a sharp increase in demand by German precious metals investors, which also continued on Saturday. There was a particularly strong demand for silver coins. “On Thursday and Friday people had to draw numbers in order for us to control the run”, reports Andreas Heubach, CEO of Heubach Edelmetalle in Nuremberg. “On both days we sold each around 40,000 silver ounces – incredible”, he said. “Demand is back – and hysteria as well”, he evaluated.

    -
    Tremendous Run
    “The run is tremendous, even today on a Saturday”, Christian Brenner, CEO of Philoro Edelmetalle GmbH in Leipzig and Berlin reports. Despite the high counter trade level in September, demand has increased by 100 percent, online-trade even soared by 300 percent.
    -
    “Run is not the right expression“, says René Lehmann of Münzland in Dresden. “We’ve seen up to 80 percent of our regular customers taking advantage of the slide to build up more positions. On those two days, on Thursday and Friday, we made approximately 50 percent of our monthly revenue”, he reports to Goldreporter. Maple Leaf (1 oz.), 1 kg Lunar and ½ oz. Great White Shark were particularly in demand, since Münzland had a special offer on them. In gold especially 1 oz. Maple Leaf and 1 oz. bars have been purchased. The ratio of buyers to sellers has generally been at 50 to 1.
    -
    Dominik Lochmann, CEO of ESG Edelmetall Service GmbH & Co. KG, confirms the surge in silver coins that are subject to differential taxation. Even higher taxed 1 kg silver bullion did very well.

Warren Pollock: Pompeii Type of Event Coming!

  • Damage Control Going to Wear Off in 2015-Warren Pollock! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Multifaceted analyst Warren Pollock says the “damage control is going to wear off in 2015.” Pollock explains, “If you look at the role of the President of the United States, his primary role is to be the public relations officer for the status quo.  At the turn of the Bush Administration, as that administration failed, there was a lack of damage control.  We are going to see the same thing as Obama leaves office timed to the end of 2015.  There is a tremendous amount of effort to protect vested interest that goes on within the White House, and they will do anything to stop things from coming unglued.  They are doing this on a day-to-day basis, and the moment they stop, or there is a pause or contention, or lack of consensus, then it is most likely, at that point, that things will become unhinged and unglued.  I can assure you, the next President of the United States, whether Republican or Democrat, will be known as a great failure.  He or she will be held responsible for the total decline of the United States.”

    -
    Pollock says people around the world refuse to see reality and are in denial. Pollock explains, “It will start to become unhinged in 2015 at the next election cycle. What we are going to see is a tremendous amount of rationalization.  If you look at things the way they are today, everyone denies there was a financial crisis.  Everyone denies that Fukushima existed.  Everyone denies the U.S. government is insolvent.  Everyone denies there are global imbalances between the U.S. and China.  All of these elements of denial are really rationalization.  The facts have changed around everyone’s outlook, which have remained static and the same.  That’s why things have this appearance of normalcy.  I think things will become more surreal around the end of 2015.”

Putin to the Western Elites: World War III Is Inevitable!

Russian TU-95 Bear strategic bomber!

Russian TU-95 Bear strategic bomber!

  • Putin isn’t stupid. He knows the strength of the west lies in the global currency hegemony! The expression of this global hegemony is the USD. The west has continuously attacked and crashed the Russian Ruble. Ie. financial WW3. No war will be triggered by Putin until Russia/China alliance kill the USD! The longer the Russia/China, BRICS, alliance drag out the situation without war, the better it is for them. They will get stronger and watch the west disintegrate economically.
    -
  • Massive amounts of physical gold are flowing from west to east. It is a matter of when the BRICS alliance will announce a return to the gold standard and abandonment of the USD completely. A huge revaluation of the price of gold upwards by the Chinese is rumoured to happen around the Chinese New Year (19 Feb 2015, Dr. Jim Willie). A gold backed trade settlement system will be instituted ie. they will not accept USD in trade settlement any more. If United States want to import stuff, it will have to be with hard asset like gold, USD created out of thin air will not be accepted.

  • Putin to the Western Elites: World War III Is Inevitable! 
    by , http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/ 
    In his strongest speech, ever, directed at the United States, in front of the rest of key members of the Western world, Putin drew a line in the sand with regard to American imperialism.
    -
    The following are excerpts of Putin’s speech delivered at the Valdai conference in Sochi, just a few days ago. The speech was directed at Western elites.
    -
    “Russia will no longer play games with the United States and engage in back-room negotiations… Russia is prepared for serious agreements, but only if these agreements are conducive to collective security… All systems of global collective security now lie in ruins. There are no longer any international security guarantees at all and the party responsible for the destruction of global collective security is The United States of America…
    -
    …The builders of the New World Order have failed by having built a sand castleRussia favors a conservative approach to introducing innovations into the social order, but is not opposed to investigating and discussing such innovations, to see if introducing any of them might be justified…
    -
    …Russia has no intention of building an empire of their own, but will not go fishing in the murky waters created by America’s ever-expanding “empire of chaos…
    -
    …Russia’s challenges lie in developing her already vast territory)…Russia will not attempt to reformat the world in her own image, but neither will she allow anyone to reformat her in their image. Russia will not close herself off from the world, but anyone who tries to close her off from the world will be sure to reap a whirlwind. Neither is Russia willing to act as a savior of the world, as she has in the past…
    -
    …Russia does not wish for the chaos to spread, does not want war, and has no intention of starting one. However, today Russia sees the outbreak of global war as almost inevitable, is prepared for it, and is continuing to prepare for it. Russia does not war, nor does she fear it…
    -
    …Russia does not intend to take an active role in thwarting those who are still attempting to construct their New World Order, However, Russia will oppose their efforts if they begin  to impinge on Russia’s key interests. Russia would prefer to stand by and watch them give themselves as many lumps as their poor heads can take. But those who manage to drag Russia into this process, through disregard for her interests, will be taught the true meaning of pain…
    -
    …Russia’s will rely not on the elites to set the tone for the future, and these decisions will result from the will of the people…”
