  • “Obama Set Up the Next President For a Major Recession”… And A Giant Crash Is Coming
    by Michael Snyder, November 21st, 2016, Economic Collapse Blog 
    Editor’s Comment: The past many months have carried a lot of noise about the coming crash, about a tipping point that may be fast approaching. The economics are simply giving way, and they can’t hold the illusion forever. Now that Donald Trump will be calling the shots, the money powers can usher in collapse if they wish, and have ready their scapegoat. It won’t just be Trump the man or the president, but the people who elected him, who backed Brexit and who gave up on their system. They people who let loose the chaos that now consumes us.

    Their rage, their anger and their desperation is brewing unrest. The ascent of populism in the political arena has put the establishment in retreat, and revealed, at last, a most dangerous atmosphere, from which collapse can properly precipitate … one in which all regulatory steadiness on the part of the system has been thrown off balance and out of whack by popular revolt. By the time the hammer falls, and the markets fall to the ground, the people rioting in the streets and losing their civility when ATMs stop working and store shelves go empty – these people will become the face of the disaster. The banks have been planning the next rise and fall for sometime; the next phase is all digital, and tightly monitored and controlled.

    We Are Being Set Up For Higher Interest Rates, A Major Recession And A Giant Stock Market Crash
    by Michael Snyder

    Since Donald Trump’s victory on election night we have seen the worst bond crash in 15 years.  Global bond investors have seen trillions of dollars of wealth wiped out since November 8th, and analysts are warning of another tough week ahead.  The general consensus in the investing community is that a Trump administration will mean much higher inflation, and as a result investors are already starting to demand higher interest rates.  Unfortunately for all of us, history has shown that higher interest rates always cause an economic slowdown.  And this makes perfect sense, because economic activity naturally slows down when it becomes more expensive to borrow money.  The Obama administration had already set up the next president for a major recession anyway, but now this bond crash threatens to bring it on sooner rather than later.

    For those that are not familiar with the bond market, when yields go up bond prices go down.  And when bond prices go down, that is bad news for economic growth. So we generally don’t want yields to go up. Unfortunately, yields have been absolutely soaring over the past couple of weeks, and the yield on 10 year Treasury notes has now jumped “one full percentage point since July”…

James Rickards: End Game for the Global Economy

  • Published on Nov 18, 2016
    On Mises Weekends this week, James Rickards joins Jeff to discuss The Road to Ruin, his latest book outlining what financial elites have planned for the next financial crisis. Rickards highlights a number of policy tools governments and central bankers have created for themselves, and points to their handling of recent crises in Cypress and Greece bail-in approach as patterns for the rest of the world.


    But, with the Federal Reserve and their peers around the world still unable to normalize their balance sheets following 2008, the real question is: “who is going to bail out the central banks?” Jeff and Jim discuss the answer to that question—and how people can protect themselves—in an interview you won’t want to miss.

Double Up On Your Prepping, The Collapse Is Most Likely Going To Occur In 2017: James Wesley Rawles

Rob Kirby: Globalists Will Crash Markets And Blame It on Trump

  • Rob Kirby: Globalists Will Crash Markets and Blame It on Trump
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby explains the violent moves in the markets by saying, “We really do not have markets anymore. We have interventions, and we have massive fraud committed on a daily basis in what we call our capital markets. Our capital markets have become nothing more than a crime scene.”


    Look no further than the gold market on election night. The stock market was 800 points down in the red, and gold was way up in the black.  All that reversed in a matter of a few days.  How did the powers pull off a stunning reversal, especially with the skyrocketing price of gold?  Kirby says, “It was roughly 8,000 metric tons from late election night through Friday.  It’s up in the area of three years of global production in the paper markets in the space of three days.”

    Who has 8,000 tons of physical gold for sale? Kirby, who buys gold by the ton for his clients, says, “It is not for sale anywhere.  If someone actually had 8,000 tons of gold to sell, I would suggest to you that if it was transparent, there are very serious players in the world that would actually pay a premium for it. . . . It’s a staggering amount, and the old saying goes if something is too good to be true, it isn’t true.  It is too big of a story to believe that there exists 8,000 tons of gold to sell because there clearly isn’t.”

    Does that mean a crash has been avoided? No, and Kirby goes on to explain, “The globalist operators have infested both the mainline DNC (Democrat) and RNC (Republican).  They are infested with globalists.  The central bank of the United States, the Federal Reserve, is the backbone of the globalist system.  The globalists are acting in crisis mode right now.  So, paying heed to the notion of never letting a good crisis go to waste, it wouldn’t shock me at all for what the globalists have in store for us.  They have contempt for humanity, and they would let the markets absolutely sewer the minute Donald Trump is sworn in, if he lives that long.  That’s where I think we are headed, and the plans may be hastened.”

    Kirby has wealthy contacts and clients all over the world. What are they telling him about the big down move in gold?  Kirby says, “They basically can’t get enough of the stuff, and it is getting harder and harder to get as time goes on to source meaningful amounts of physical bullion.  People who are buying bullion are not turning away in the slightest.”

    On his clients and contacts, Kirby goes on to say, “Everybody seems to be on edge. I’ve never seen people more on edge.  There is a lot of resentment because of all these interventions.”

    In closing, Kirby says, “The globalists are going to crash the markets and blame it all on Trump. Then, they will say he’s the reason why it crashed.  This way they can, in their minds, try to get rid of Trump.  If Americans’ 401ks go to zero, they are going to want someone to blame, and they will fall into line. If the globalists blame Trump, it will be off with his head.”

Clif High: Federal Reserve & Clintons Doomed. DOW & Gold $125,000 — Hyperinflation Coming

  • Clif High: Federal Reserve & Clintons Doomed. DOW & Gold $125,000 — Hyperinflation Coming
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Internet data mining expert Clif High predicted that “Trump would win” the election and that Hillary Clinton would go “missing” after the election. Sure enough, Hillary was missing the night of her defeat.  What does that mean?  High thinks, “That there was a breakdown among a very delicate relationship among a lot of powerful parties that failed to deliver as promised.  The plan didn’t work.  So, now there is no real plan “B.”  There never could be under the circumstances.  We are in a situation where there can’t be a plan “B” for the Federal Reserve, for example.  They (FED) have to go on a certain path, they’re doomed.  That is true of the criminal organization we call CGI (Clinton Global Initiative).  Any criminal gang, no matter where it is in the social order, progresses along a certain path, runs into opposition and dies.  It always happens, and it always will.”

    So, does Clif High think Hillary Clinton is in jeopardy? High answers, “I certainly do.”  High’s data mining also shows that “Clinton minions are worried . . .  all I get in the data is all these people have fear and worry.”

    On the financial front, High contends we will have inflation and deflation at the same time. And High says interest rates are headed up and will continue to rise.  High explains, “My definition is deflation, but maybe we should define it as debt destruction and inflation.  The powers that be and the Federal Reserve in the data sets that I have are showing that they are really worried and start to get worried by the 12th of December, and it breaks out into the public in early January.  They are worried about the destruction of all of this debt by dollars pouring back into the U.S.  The debt is actually being paid off by all this money coming back into the U.S.  It’s not an actual increase of actual cash.  It is a destruction of all the derivatives . . . It is debt destruction for sure. . . . Also, a component of the hyperinflation is they can’t destroy all the repatriated dollars (flowing back in) fast enough.  So, some of those do show up in the supply chain of the digital cost we have to deal with. . . .So, as this deflation starts, the hyperinflation is already going to be ongoing.”  In short, High says your home will go down in value while you are paying much more for supplies to live in it.

    On gold and silver, High says never mind the recent price drop. High says, “They’re real money, always have been, and you are going to need it. . . . How can it be silly to hold real money? Americans are going to have to face up to the fact that we have been deluded by a propaganda press that was attempting to sow a particular viewpoint around the world.  We tried to conquer the world with dollars and the threat of bullets . . . . Our dollars were accepted all around the world, and people gave us real stuff for those green pieces of paper.  They’re not going to do that anymore.  So, if you want that coconut from Malaysia . . . you are going to have to pay something that has value.  Those little green pieces of paper will not after a short period of time.  They are going to have value inside the country for a while, but outside the country, people are going to say I want gold or silver or oil.  I want to see something of value.”

    High can’t name a price for gold and silver, but his “predictive linguistics” says, “At some point in 2017, probably past mid-year, we’re going to be looking at hyperinflation so bad that the DOW will be measured around $100,000 to $125,000. Meaning, the dollar will be so worthless that it will take $125,000 to buy the little basket that is the DOW.  I also have language that says an ounce of gold will be approaching the DOW in terms of value.  This is not ludicrous.  In the last depression in 1933 and 1934, after the shutting of the banks . . . we had a point where gold and the DOW were the same, and gold dominated the DOW for decades.”

  • I hope everyone is prepared for a meltdown eventuality. Jim Sinclair and Bill Holter in their latest interview (with Greg Hunter) which I posted a few days back said (paraphrasing) : “Financial market may go into lock down mode by Monday, should Trump win!!” Ie. the financial system, banking system, stock market … may not open. And it could reverberate worldwide!
  • I believe the Illuminati will use the opportunity to trigger a global economic, financial and currency meltdown. I may be wrong but can you afford to suffer the consequences should I be proven right? S&P500 and Nasdaq both down 4% as I type this. Fast moving market.

James Rickards: Huge Inflation Coming With Coming Economic Meltdown! Money Riots Possible in Next Economic Crash

  • James Rickards: Huge Inflation Coming With Coming Economic Meltdown! Money Riots Possible in Next Economic Crash
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Three time best-selling author James Rickards says the next economic crash will lock you out of your money. Rickards has a new book titled “The Road To Ruin.”  Rickards paints a scary possible scenario for what is coming and contends, “The global elites have a secret plan for the next financial crisis.” Rickards goes on to explain, “They are going to lock down the system when the crisis hits.  In 1998, everybody wanted their money back, and they printed the money.  In 2008, everybody wanted their money back, and they printed the money.  In 2018 or sooner, everyone is going to want their money back, but they are not going to print the money.  They are going to tell you that can’t have it.  They are going to lock down the system and close the banks.  Money market funds are going to suspend redemptions.  Stock exchanges are going to be closed, and they’ll say it’s ‘temporary.’  That’s what Nixon said when he closed the gold window in 1971. . . . They will do it to buy time until they can flood the market with SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights IMF currency).”


    So, do we get inflation or deflation in the upcoming economic crash? Rickards says, “You might get some deflation first, but I don’t expect that because central banks are trying so hard to cause inflation.  The natural state of the world is deflation right now. . . . But governments can’t have deflation, it destroys the tax base. . . . So, you have natural deflation and policy inflation, and they are pushing together.  It’s an unstable equilibrium, and at some point, it is going to snap one way or another.  If it is deflationary, and I don’t expect this, the policy will be even more money printing. . . . As far as the SDR’s are concerned, it will certainly be inflationary. . . . You may not be able to save the world, but you can save yourself and family by getting into some assets that will stand this inflation and be non-digital.  Any digital money can be locked down with a few key strokes. Non-digital money such as gold, silver, fine art, land, natural resources, water and there is a long list of things . . . those are the things that are going to last. . . . The other point I make is that when this happens, it will happen very quickly. . . . You won’t know it in advance, and the stock market will be closed when you decide to get out of the stock market.  You may not be able to get gold.  Right now, you can get it . . . but in a panic when it’s going up $100 per ounce per day, you’ll be watching the price go up, but you won’t be able to get it.”

Deutsche Bank WARNING: Fears ‘Robot Traders Will Trigger GLOBAL CRASH’ on THURSDAY

breaking-get_ready_for_the_collapse_of_deutschebank

  • Deutsche Bank WARNING: Fears ‘Robot Traders Will Trigger GLOBAL CRASH’ on THURSDAY
    by SIOBHAN MCFADYEN, http://www.express.co.uk/ 
    EXCLUSIVE: THE FUTURE of Deutsche Bank could be decided on Thursday when bosses release its third quarter results, warn experts.

    The news could spark a sell-off contagion that could lead to another global financialmeltdown and a bail out by Angela Merkel’s government despite her opposition to German state intervention.

    Analysts are warning that ultra high frequency trades triggered by machines could lead to a perfect storm and could have serious knock-on effects for other banks exposed to the firm’s risky assets book.

    Germany’s largest lender has been hit by unprecedented sell-offs losing 52 per cent of its value in just a year and is struggling to ward off its crisis. The bank has announced massive job cuts ahead of a £11.4billion fine from the US Justice Department. And it has been muted that up to 5,000 jobs could go in America alone. Now investors, including their biggest stakeholder Qatar, are said to be on edge as they get set to reveal their latest financial data.

    Sources say hedge funds are sharpening their claws to make a killing at any cost. Academic Dean at London Academy of Trading, Paddy Osborn,  said: “It’s the high tech hedge funds who will do it. “Those guys are putting in maybe 50,000 orders into the market every second and they get a very low trade to order ratio, maybe only 20 to 30 get executed in a second and then they all get cancelled and then they put another 50,000 in the next second, it’s not something a human being could do.

    “The orders are triggered by the movement in the price, so a lot of them are speculating in a trend following type strategy, so if the price starts to move in one direction they want to take a position in that direction.

    “It’s a simple strategy but it’s very, very fast, so if you trigger one order that pushes a price a bit low then that could trigger another and another and that’s what caused the flash crash in 2010, and I think it probably contributed to the one we saw last year as well after China spluttered a bit.

    “In the US only two per cent of institutions who are trading equities use algorithms but nearly three quarters of the volume is innovated by this two per cent of companies in terms of the number of trades.”
