Bill Holter: Entire System Based on Debt with Historic Liability

  • Bill Holter: Entire System Based on Debt with Historic Liability
    by Greg Hunter’s
    Financial writer and precious metals expert Bill Holter is “not worried at all” about the current price smash down for precious metals. Holter says, “We live in a world where all liabilities are more than all liabilities in history. This whole system is going to come down. . . . If you see a house burn down, the only thing left is the foundation. That’s the only thing left because the foundation doesn’t burn. That’s what gold and silver are, and that’s what’s going to be left when this house of financial cards burns down.”

    Why are dark powers intentionally driving metal prices down? It’s all part of a very simple thought control message. Holter explains, “Basically, it’s so the people believe that gold is bad and the dollar is good. It’s basically to support the dollar, and also thus support the Treasury market. . . . This has to have an official backing to it. It could not be done if they were not given a pass. This would not be going on if there was true rule of law. . . . We don’t have free markets. There are no markets. All markets are rigged. . . . Markets should be panicking that we are moving towards hyperinflation. All markets are locked down, and they are locked down by derivatives. . . . In 2008, there were $1.4 quadrillion in derivatives. How is it possible that derivatives are larger than the system as a whole? The answer to that is because derivatives have become the system. Derivatives are what price the system. You are basically putting up one cent to control $1. So, it’s easy to put the price of something where you want it to be.”

    Holter contends, “The entire system is based on debt. The entire system is a liability. So, some people are getting some of their money out of the system into real money (gold and silver) which is no one else’s liability. . . . The biggest thing is there is too much debt in the system. Everybody owes everybody, and all you need is one link in the chain to break. All you need is one entity that cannot make good on what they promised.”

    Understanding this chart will also help you understand why “this cannot go on forever” and perhaps help you see that we are at the end of this grand experiment and WHY the system MUST reset, as well as how gold can protect the value of your work and wealth over time.

John Rubino: Next Recession Could Blow Up Financial Markets

  • John Rubino: Next Recession Could Blow Up Financial Markets
    by Greg Hunter’s (Early Sunday Release)
    Unemployment is near 3% and President Trump is calling for rate cuts and quantitative easing. Is the economy doing well or getting ready to tank? Financial writer John Rubino says, “We went from being at all-time highs to down 20% in sort of a flash crash in two months towards the end of last year. That told the Fed and the other central banks that they can never tighten again. This is it for this cycle and for the entire remaining time of today’s financial system for higher interest rates. They abruptly announced to never mind about those four rate hikes that were going to happen in 2019. We (the Fed) are not going to do anything. If we do anything, it will be in the opposite direction and cut interest rates and a new round of QE, etcetera and etcetera. The stock market went right back up to record levels. . . . The end part of this story is how good all this is for gold. . . . The next thing from the Fed will be a rate cut, and it will increase and not decrease its balance sheet. . . . We are going to go preemptively to monetary easing, and that’s really new. This is very, very new. You normally don’t do this. You wait until you see a bear market and a slowdown in the economy that gets people laid off before you start aggressively easing. Apparently, we are going to do that stuff before that stuff starts happening. Who knows what the impact of that will be? If it works the way they want, more people will get hired, wages will pick up and we’ll have inflation in the 4% or 5% range before you know it.”

    So, with near record low yields on bonds and near record high prices for stocks, Rubino has just one question. Rubino says, “What’s cheap? Gold and silver. What is down and what is cheap relative to the fundamentals. It’s not just the price of gold and silver, it’s how much gold and silver exists relative to how much paper wealth is in the world. The amount of gold and silver that we are bringing out of the ground is growing at 1% or 2% per year. The amount of paper wealth in the world is growing exponentially. . . .Gold is moving back into the center of the global financial system.”

COLLAPSE SIGNALS 101: Rush IPOs and False Valuations

  • ITM Trading Streamed live 3 hours ago
    Link to the Slides and Sources:…
    I cannot give you many guarantees, but this one I can give, at some point, all assets and instruments go to their true fundamental values. That’s why it’s important to identify the true value. Is something overvalued, fairly valued or undervalued. You want to buy when the asset is undervalued. Since central banks targeted specific assets/instruments for reflation (stocks, bonds, real estate) and used their almost unlimited money printing machine to fund this reflation, there is no good price discovery in any markets. The rise of the Unicorn may be one of the unintended consequences. The fall of the unicorn might give rise to a black swan event that no one is even thinking about now. I’m wondering if you have a game plan. We do, it’s called the strategy. We’re here if you want to know more.

YIELD CURVE, MELT UP… Q&A with Lynette Zang and Eric Griffin

  • ITM Trading Streamed live on Apr 2, 2019
    Link to the Slides and Sources:…
    Question 1. William L: Barron’s saying that the threat of a yield curve is over?
    Question 2. Ben P: Is it possible the melt up is actually a bull trap?
    Question 3. Gang: Why do “experts” say there’s an everything-bubble with nowhere to hide your wealth, and then in the same interview say you should have no more than 20% of your wealth in precious metals?
    Question 4. Julian H: From looking at the gold charts in Venezuela and what their cost of goods are year over year it appears that the purchasing power of gold has increased 5 times (500%). If this is correct, is it a good example of what could happen here in the USA?
    Question 5. Maxim G: Are people like me who paid off debt stupid? When the great financial reset comes, wouldn’t indebted people benefit more from it?

The Coming Credit Meltdown Will Be As Bad As The Great Depression And The Financial Crisis: Deutsche

  • The Coming Credit Meltdown Will Be As Bad As The Great Depression And The Financial Crisis: Deutsche
    by Tyler Durden,
    With investor attention increasingly focusing on what most believe will be the catalyst for the next financial crisis, namely a tsunami in corporate defaults as a result of the disastrous combination of record leverage, higher rates and an economic slowdown, overnight we presented the view of FTI global co-leader of corporate finance and restructuring, Carlyn Taylor, who predicted that “a spike in defaults is on the way, sooner or later.”

    The expansion is pretty long in the tooth and there’s definitely a lot of buildup. The activity level of restructuring is rising, maybe not at the rate of bankruptcies, but the pipeline of companies we think are going to end up in restructuring, based on metrics that we analyze, that volume has gone up. And we’re so busy, which we don’t think is just market share, because we think our competitors are also very busy.

    Yet while investor worries have centered on record corporate leverage…

CASHLESS, MELT UP, GOLD PRICES… Q&A with Lynette Zang and Eric Griffin

  • ITM Trading Streamed live on Mar 26, 2019
    Link to the Slides and Sources:…
    Question 1. Mike R: Do annuities keep pace with inflation so I can at least hold onto my purchasing power during the term I hold it?
    Question 2. Larry G: What happens with the cash you are holding if they force us to go cashless? Will we be given a chance to redeposit?
    Question 3. Evan W: You talk about the melt up and melt down phases. You say markets are beginning to break down, but then you say we are in the melt up phase. Could you explain the difference and where we are currently in the melt up or melt down phase?
    Question 4. James R: If the banks are able to control the supply of gold through releasing any quantity back into the market, why is gold a good long-term investment if its price is limited by central banks?
    Question 5. Paul S: when I think of deflation, I relate it to lower prices, hence gold and silver would decrease in price during times of deflation. From what I gather from information you have presented, this does not seem to be true. Can you tell me if this is the case and also explain why the price of gold would rise?

Jim Rickards: FedRes Desperate for Inflation Bullish for Gold

  • Jim Rickards: FedRes Desperate for Inflation Bullish for Gold
    by Greg Hunter’s (Early Sunday Release)
    Four time best-selling author Jim Rickards says the Fed “throwing in the towel” on rate hikes is signaling a big problem for the economy. Rickards says, “The Fed was tightening to get ready for the next recession. . . . You need to cut interest rates somewhere between 4% and 5% to get out of a recession. How do you cut interest rates 4% if you are only at 2.25%? The answer is you can’t. You have to get to 4% before you can cut 4%, and that’s what the Fed was trying to do. . . . How do you raise rates in weakness to get ready for the next recession without causing the next recession that you are preparing to cure? That was the conundrum. I never thought they would get it right . . . and, as of now, it looks like they didn’t get it right. Meaning, they tightened so much to get ready for the next recession they slowed the economy.”

    Rickards says, “Bernanke painted them into a corner, and they can’t get out. There is no escape from the room. By the way, one of the reasons gold is preforming so well, the Fed has proved that they can’t get out of this. They got into it, but they can’t get out of it because every time they try, they sink the stock market. They sink the housing market. They raise the specter of recession. They slow economic growth. They don’t want that. So, they sort of pause and maybe tiptoe back into it, but they really can’t get out of it.”

    On gold, Rickards says, “People always say there is not enough gold to support commerce and trade and the money supply. I always remind them that is nonsense. There’s always enough gold, it’s just a question of price. At the current level of around $1,300 per ounce, that’s too low. . . . What price does (support commerce and trade)? So, if you take . . . supply and say back it by 40%, divide by 33,000 tons, that comes to $10,000 per ounce. Could it be higher? Sure . . . if you used a larger money supply, you would need a higher price. If you would use a larger percentage . . . that would be a higher price. If you do that math, you can get to $40,000 per ounce easily. I want to make this clear. These are actual calculations based on actual numbers that are publicly available for money supply. It’s not made up. It’s not science fiction. It’s just a simple question. If you wanted to go to a gold standard today without causing deflation, given the amount of gold and given the amount of money, what would the price have to be? The answer on some very conservative calculations would be $10,000 per ounce. . . . The time to buy gold is when sentiment is low and people hate it. . . . So, the bull market is intact.” We are in the fourth year. Bull markets start off slow because of all the bad sentiment, but then they gather momentum. So, it’s still not too late to jump on this train, and my expectation is this will pick up. . . . The signal the gold market is getting right now is the Fed is throwing in the towel. . . . They made some headway, but it came at a high cost because they slowed the economy . . . and they can’t continue. . . . Now, they are going to be desperate for inflation, and that is very bullish for gold.”
