The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Schizophrenic gold market has highest level of long open interest since November while price continues to drop

Despite the fact that naked short contracts for gold (and silver) in the future's market continue to be dumped by a combination of bullion banks, hft algorithms, and perhaps even the Federal Reserve's own trading desk, open interest on the long side of the monetary metals continue to increase as well.  And while this buying has not been enough to keep the price from falling close to $50 over the past three weeks, geo-political events coupled with what appears to be a declining economy are leading investors to rush into gold at levels not seen since last November and following the Presidential election.

Investors continue to pour their money into the safe haven of gold, pushing net long positions of the precious metal to their highest level in five months. 
Amid rising tensions over the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, surprise missile strikes in Syria and the first round of the French presidential election, investors have felt little need to pull out their assets out of the precious metal. Instead, a series of events have led net long positions of gold to reach 200,677 contracts, or 624.2 tons, as of April 25, up 2.5% from a week before, according to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The position marks the highest level since early November last year. 
Meanwhile tensions on the Korean Peninsula remain, as North Korea on Monday suggested that it would continue its nuclear weapons tests despite repeated warnings from U.S. President Donald Trump. 
While some concerns are lingering, other political risks are looming too. The latest one is the tax reduction plan proposed by Trump last week. The proposal, which would cut corporate tax to 15% from 35%, is seen as unlikely to win support, and "investors are questioning its viability," said Koichiro Kamei, a financial and precious-metals analyst. "Uncertainty is spreading over the Trump administration's ability to deliver on its promises, and it is making investors reluctant to let go of gold." - Asia Nikkei

China markets on verge of bypassing dollar and selling oil futures in Yuan

A little over a year ago, China finalized an agreement with Russia where they would be allowed to purchase as much oil as they desired from the global energy titan, and pay in currencies other than the Petrodollar.  On Nov. 21, the 2nd largest global economy fired a new shot across America’s bow, and stands of the precipice of allowing oil to be bought on the futures market in Yuan, creating a direct conflict with dollar domination, and officially ending the petrodollar’s monopoly as the world’s sole reserve currency.

Corn report lays out the future direction for the economy

With the ongoing drought across the globe, and especially in America, corn production and yields are quickly becoming one of the most vital data indicators in the economy.  On Aug 10, the USDA issued its projected corn harvest for 2012, and the results were a 17% drop in yields, and a dire outlook for several industries and communities that rely upon the farm staple.





The U.S. Department of Agriculture Friday slashed its forecast for corn production this year by about 17% as drought conditions in key growing regions worsened.
Farmers are now expected to produce just 10.779 billion bushels of corn this year, the USDA said in its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report. That's a sharp drop from the 12.97 billion bushels the agency predicted a month ago and the reduction exceeded expectations from some traders and analysts.

The new forecast puts U.S. corn production at its lowest since 2006, the USDA said. - Marketwatch
For farmers, investors, futures traders, and ethonol producers, this chart is of vast importance today, in the coming day.



At the end of June, corn futures were selling for 657 a contract.  Today, corn futures reached an inter-day high of 827 per contract, an increase in price of 26% in less than a month and a half.  Projections could raise corn prices to between $10 and $11 per bushel, which would create a price in inflation in food and ethonol to record highs.
