Crush the Street: Will We See A 10/1 Gold-Silver Price Ratio?
The world economic and financial system is in serious trouble.
With the coming collapse of U.S. and global oil production,
this will destroy the value of most paper assets and real
estate. Thus, the 99% of investors trying to move into
physical gold and silver to protect wealth, will find out how
very little metal will be available. This could cause the
gold-silver price ratio to drop closer to 10/1… or even lower.
I discussed this with Kenneth Ameduri at Crush The Street...
Fed Intervention Has Completely Destroyed The Markets Dave
Since late 2012, the Fed has been able to orchestrate the
markets with heavy doses of direct and indirect
interventionary tactics. It’s used a combination of money
printing, plunge protection and propaganda to keep the stock
market propped up, interest rates near zero and the price of
gold suppressed. But, if the action over the last four trading
days are any indication, the Fed is increasingly losing its
ability to control the markets. This is most evident in the
apparent break-down in market sector correlations. From
roughly late 2012 through early 2016, the Fed has been the
US$/yen as a “lever” with which to push the S&P 500 up and the
price of gold down...
A Significant Upward Revaluation Of Gold Is Now On The Horizon
Similar to the legendary Damocles, whose life was threatened
by a sword held up by a horse’s hair, a decline in asset
prices nowadays represents a latent threat to the fragile
economic recovery. Gold delivered the strongest quarterly
performance in 30 years in the first quarter of 2016. Many
technical indicators and sentiment gauges suggest that gold
has gone through a classical cycle, which reached its low
point last year amid maximum pessimism with a final wave of
panic selling. Our analysis confirms the view we have already
expressed in last year’s report: A significant advance in the
gold price is to be expected...
The Current, Soon To Be Called Out, Federal Reserve Blueprint
As I discussed this weekend, and many times before, Central
bankers are no more than heavily-armed Keystone Kops – who
each day, attempt to “kick the can” another 24 hours. To that
end, they are rapidly losing control of global economies,
financial markets, and political regimes; and thus, in their
last ditch desperation to acquire those last, painstaking
inches, they have supplemented 24/7 market manipulation and
unprecedented money printing – like an iceberg, far more
covertly than overtly – with what amounts to weekly, if not
daily, “de facto FOMC meetings.” In other words, the walls are
closing so rapidly, they are now “jawboning” as intensely as
they are manipulating markets and economic data...
The Economy: It’s Worse Than I Thought Dave Kranzler
The stimulative effects of the Fed’s money printing program
have faded. The subprime debt default crisis that plagued the
housing market in 2008 has been replaced by a general
reflation of subprime credit issuance that includes housing,
autos, student loans and personal loans. Synchrony, formerly
GE Capital Retail Bank, is advertising a high yield savings
account that pays 1.1% interest, or 8x the national average.
That’s because Synchrony is funding a plethora of high
interest rate consumer lending platforms which primarily
appeal to subprime borrowers. Look for Synchrony to blow up
sometime in the next 24 months. Same with Capitol One, Ally
Financial and Credit Acceptance Corporation, among others...
Deflation = A Rise in the Standard of Living Jeff Nielson
In the world of health-care; we would never think of
postponing treatment (or abandoning it altogether) because the
medicine “tastes bad” or because our therapy produces some
temporary pain. As responsible adults, we recognize that such
medicine/pain is unavoidable. Only children seek to avoid the
bad-tasting medicine and complain about the temporary pain
caused by therapy. What happens if we refuse the bad-tasting
medicine and/or refuse the painful therapy? With respect to a
disease such as cancer, the answer is simple: we die. With
respect to the economic cancer of inflation (and all of the
bad debt/malinvestment it produces), if we refuse the
bad-tasting medicine of deflation, the economy dies...
Hundreds Of Paper Claims For Every Available Ounce... KWN
This bond panic has resulted in stock liquidations in many
world markets. Hopefully this will make the investment public
more cognizant of the extreme risks that exist today in
conventional financial markets — bonds, stocks, and real
estate — all of which are in the throes of historic financial
bubbles. There has been an unjustified faith in the ability of
central bankers to control things, and that’s allowed the
economy and financial markets to continue without any serious
dislocation. I personally have a much less charitable view of
central bankers. I think that many of them are disingenuous
academics who do not comprehend the risks that they have
created in the global economy and financial markets...
Death of the Bakken Field has Begun: Means Big Trouble For The
Unfortunately, the propping up of the U.S. market by the Fed
and the domestic shale energy Ponzi scheme is running out of
time. This is why it is imperative for investors to start
moving out of Bonds, Stocks and Real Estate and into physical
gold and silver to protect wealth. For the wealthy investor or
institution that believe a 5-10% allocation in physical gold
is good insurance, you are sadly mistaken. While Donald Trump
is receiving more support from Americans in his Presidential
race, his campaign motto that he will “Make American Strong
Again”, will never happen. The America we once knew is over.

Silver Will Be A Top Performing Asset In The Next Financial
Crisis Chris Vermeulen
When investors realize that they are holding worthless
currencies, the big money will rush into the precious metals.
Consider this: The total world’s investment holdings in silver
are a paltry $50.8 billion, compared to $3.04 trillion in
gold, as shown in the chart below. Did you know that the hedge
funds alone manage around $2.7 trillion, according to Barclay
Hedge data? Even if a small portion of the trillions sloshing
around out there decides to enter into silver, the white metal
will shoot through the roof...
James Turk – How To Survive The Coming Financial Storm KWN
The reality is that the Fed is caught between a rock and a
hard place. First, we are seeing the failure of their
Keynesian policies. They are probably scratching their heads
wondering why all their money printing and interventions to
bring about artificially low interest rates isn’t working to
revive the economy. A lot of PhDs are ending up with egg on
their face. Second, Fed policymakers no doubt recognize that
higher interest rates will further weaken economic activity
because the debt loan being carried is just too high. More to
the point, with a moribund economy, there is not enough wealth
being created to service today’s level of debt...
