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?

Gold's unstoppable rise coupled with bond crashes the final warnings for a coming monetary collapse

Contrary to central banks and financial pundits, it is the bond market, rather than the stock markets, which provide the true signals for the strength of an economy and of a currency.  And this has never been so true since the world went forward with its credit based monetary system.

Yet in addition to this, the one commodity which also acts as a warning sign for monetary and financial collapse is gold.  And it has proven accurate on at least three occasions going back to the 1970's when the precious metal was removed as a backstop for all global currencies.


As we begin the second half of 2016, some interesting events are taking place that go far beyond last week's Brexit vote and possible future ending of the European Union project.  First, the number of global sovereign bonds that now have negative yields are at $11.7 trillion, and is a number that is climbing daily.  And secondly in the U.S., where the dollar remains the global reserve currency and the U.S. Treasury the most important credit vehicle, yields for treasuries have fallen to their lowest point since the 1950's.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note sat lower at 1.004 percent, after hitting their lowest level in four years, according to Reuters. The yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower at 2.241 percent after hitting a new all-time low. - CNBC
U.S. 30-year yield hits lowest in at least 60 years.  Treasuries post highest return in 17 months in June * Bond prices pare gains after ISM PMI data beats forecast * Fed monitoring Brexit's impact on U.S. - Fed's Fischer - The U.S. Treasuries market rallied on Friday, with the 30-year yield hitting its lowest since the 1950s in a worldwide scramble for bonds on expectations of weak global growth and more policy stimulus from major central banks. - Yahoo Finance
Even during the 2008 Credit Crisis did bond yields for the 10 and 30 year never get so low, which validates that the world is rushing full on out of their own financial instruments and are willing to take even a smidgeon of return in exchange for a flight to safety.

But as we have seen since January, U.S. bonds aren't the only signal of a move out of stocks and faltering currencies.  In fact, gold has been the best performing asset for the entire year, and as more and more geo-political and economic events reveal themselves to place the global financial system on the precipice of collapse, the monetary metal will not only soar past its all-time high, but ultimately be the only true safe haven when even the dollar no longer acts as a currency of strength and stability.

Gold crosses $1300 and silver $18 on first trading day in May

Last week we wrote about the importance of gold closing above its heavy resistance point of $1285, and whether the bullion banks would attempt to naked short the price on Sunday with a massive number of paper contracts.  And as we begin a new trading month here in May, it appears that we had at least a minor capitulation from the cartel as gold not only rose above $1300 per ounce this morning, but it is mirroring the dollar as the reserve currency continues to decline precipitously.
A lack of intervention in the Yen and strength in EUR have combined to weigh on the US dollar. Bloomberg's USD Index is back at one-year lows as, while overnight chaos sent stocks higher, it has driven investors into the safety of bonds (Treasury yields down 2-3bps) and precious metals. Gold topped $1300 and Silver $18. - Zerohedge

Chinese gold fix just the fist step in a two year plan to move away from dollar hegemony

Analysts in Hong Kong admitted on April 20 that the implementation of the new Chinese gold fix is just the first step in a multi-year plan to move the Far Eastern economy completely away from the dollar, and back to a gold backed monetary system.

The new gold pricing mechanism that started on April 19 at the Shanghai Gold Exchange will allow China to eventually move all price discovery away from London and the U.S., and then use their authority to bring gold back into the trade and currencies over the next few years.


China's shift to an official local-currency-based gold fixing is "the culmination of a two-year plan to move away from a US-centric monetary system," according to Bocom strategist Hao Hong. In an insightfully honest Bloomberg TV interview, Hong admits that "by trading physical gold in renminbi, China is slowly chipping away at the dominance of US dollars." Gold, silver, and petroleum "are the three USD-based commodites that China wants most control of" according to Hong but "gold in particular is one of the commodities that China is hoarding very hard." - Zerohedge

With Shanghai now establishing a new price discovery, Russia wants to join with China to create joint Eurasian gold market

April 19 was a monumental day for the global physical gold markets, with the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) setting a new price to compete directly with London and the U.S. Comex.  Yet this move is just the first of many in China's long-term strategy to bring about a worldwide return to a gold standard.

And now it appears that they won't go it alone as on the same day of China's gold price determination for the world's largest gold market, Russia wants to join in as their central bank is now in talks with Beijing to create a joint Eurasian market that will be almost bigger than the Western metals markets combined.


The Bank of Russia and the People's Bank of China want to create a joint platform that would unite gold trading by the world's two biggest gold buying countries.
“BRICS countries are large economies with large reserves of gold and an impressive volume of production and consumption of this precious metal. In China, the gold trade is conducted in Shanghai, in Russia it is in Moscow. Our idea is to create a link between the two cities in order to increase trade between the two markets," First Deputy Governor of the Russian Central Bank Sergey Shvetsov told TASS. 
China is the world's largest gold producer. Last year it produced 490 tons. Russia is third after Australia with about 295 tons produced last year. Overall, the countries make up 25 percent of the world gold production. 
At the same time, the central banks of Russia and China are the world’s biggest gold buyers. Since the end of 2008 the gold reserves of China have nearly tripled - from 600 to 1,762 tons. 
Among the countries with the largest gold reserves, China is fifth and Russia is sixth after the US, Germany, Italy and France. - Russia Today

Outside of 'official' gold reserve tally's, it is estimated by insiders that both China and Russia own more than 40,000 tons combined, which would be greater than all reported reserves held in Western central banks.

It's Official! China sets new Yuan denominated gold price at Shanghai Gold Exchange

On April 19, China officially validated the rumor and initiated a new Yuan denominated gold price at the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE).

Officially setting the opening price at 257.97 Yuan, or $39.87 per gram, China has now thrown down the gauntlet against London and the Comex for control over the global physical gold market.


China launched its yuan-denominated gold benchmark on Tuesday in Shanghai as it seeks to secure more sway in the pricing of the precious metal.
The Shanghai Gold Benchmark Price (code: SHAU), is the quote for trading of 1kg, 99.99 percent purity bullion, denominated in the Chinese yuan and derived from multiple rounds of trading. 
The benchmark was set at 257.97 yuan per gram on Tuesday, the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) said in a statement. 
The benchmark also lays the foundation for shifting bullion trading in Shanghai from mostly spot to derivatives to increase the appeal of yuan-denominated bullion trading as financial instruments for both domestic and global investors. - People.CN

Negative interest rates in Europe lead Austria to highest gold sales in history

While the U.S. and most of the Western economies talk down gold and the need to protect your wealth in a physical asset, one sector of the Eurozone is setting new records for physical gold sales in the wake of negative interest rates.

In 2015, the nation of Austria set a new record for gold sales, with a 215% increase over the previous record set one year earlier.  And their 1.3 million ounces sold was greater than all sales made between the U.S. and Australia mints combined.


The Austrian Mint sold 1.3 million ounces of gold in 2015. This was up 215% from 2014 when the Austrian Mint sold 910 million ounces of gold. Austrian Mint gold sales in 2015 exceeded the combined 2015 U.S. Mint American Gold Eagle and Perth Mint gold sales. 
Austrian Mint spokeswoman Andrea Lang told Bloomberg News that the Austrian Mint’s gold sales were a reaction to the negative interest rates instituted across the European Union. A common knock against gold is that it doesn’t pay interest. That complaint is neutralized when gold is compared against cash deposits, which lose money by remaining in bank accounts and are subject to potential “bail-ins” whereby depositors may lose some of their deposits if the banks where they keep their money become insolvent. 
Gold was the best performing asset in the first quarter of 2016 and the Austrian Mint expects sales to remain strong through 2016. Indeed, in the first quarter of 2016, the European Central Bank announced additional stimulus and took interest rates further into negative territory. These initiatives should make gold even more attractive to cash depositors in Europe. - Finance.Townhall.com

When the SGE declares its own gold price next week, the arbitrage battle for gold really begins

April 19 is the expected day the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) is to declare its own Yuan denominated gold price in the world's largest physical gold market, and we are now less than four days away from what could be a radical sea change in the entire precious metals industry.

This is because no one yet knows at what price the SGE is expected to open with next week, but since the market currently marks up gold sales with as much as a 40% premium already, chances are extremely good that it will be much higher than the price long controlled by London and the U.S. Comex.

And should this truly be the case, where China announces a price that is greater than the Spot price determined in Western markets, then part one of China's gambit will be revealed, and it involves an arbitrage scheme meant to entice a shifting of all metals Eastward, using the greed of the West to accomplish this.

An arbitrage is when one market buys or sells an asset at a much different price than another market, allowing customers and investors the chance to skim profits from the difference between the two prices.  And an example of this would be if the SGE offered a buy price of say $1600 in U.S. dollar equivalent, where the current Comex spot price is $1235.  This difference in price would trigger a run on the Comex, where investors would try to buy up all available gold contracts, demand delivery, and then sell it to the SGE and collect the difference in profit.  The result of course is that the West would suddenly be drained of all their gold, and now China would have sole control over the global gold market.

Analyst Dr. Jim Willie also spelled this out in an interview he did earlier this week.

The Chinese attack within the Gold market could hit Satanist bankers where they live, in the fire of mid-April.... The arrival of the Gold futures contract in Shanghai poses an additional risk for the Western banker cabal, a grand crime syndicate which extends to the energy firms, the military industrial complex, the big pharmaceutical firms, and the press networks. 
A real valid bonafide Gold contract which delivers physical gold would enable vast arbitrage to buy cheap in London and sell dear in China. Any acceleration in the arbitrage activity, combined with any sincere attempt to set the Gold Fix in a reasonable manner that puts equilibrium as priority, and the Western bankers will face the USDollar kicked to the curb and possible global boycott. - Rogue Money
It is no coincidence that one time London Gold Fix committee member Deutsche Bank came out yesterday and admitted to the fraud and manipulation that has long taken place in the Western gold markets, and these revelations will provide China a strong boost for their new pricing mechanism if/when it comes out next week.  And besides just investors rushing to leave the Comex and begin participating in the SGE, a more important group of metal players will just as likely do the same, and they are the miners and refiners of gold and silver who will gladly take their production and move East to finally get a price worthy of their output.

Paper traders helping to keep gold prices going higher as market fully into bull run

As many gold holders know, the paper markets are much greater than the physical and can have extreme effects on price and direction.  But with gold in 2016 having its strongest start since Americans were allowed to once again own the precious metal back in 1974, an interesting synthesis is starting to emerge.

And that is the paper traders, particularly those in the options market, are moving en masse into the Bull camp and helping to keep gold going higher even as the Fed seeks to depress the price in order to protect the dollar.

Amid gold's best start to a year since 1974, options traders continue to bet on more gains.

Gold responds favorably as Fed Chairman Janet Yellen shows central bank has no idea what to do for economy

Yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen spoke at the Economic Club of New York and left monetary markets without direction, and investors rushing into safe havens outside the dollar.  In fact, while the Fed Head spoke contradictory words that the economy is both strong, and also uncertain in nearly the same sentence, the dollar reacted by selling off against most currencies, and gold rose more than $20 by the close of trading.

Perhaps the telling point for Yellen was the fact that on Monday, the Atlanta Fed downgraded its Q1 GDP estimate to below 1%, showing that December's rate hike was a huge mistake in an environment of continuing deflationary recessions.

"the Atlanta Fed will have no choice but to revise its Q1 “nowcast” to 1.0% or even lower,which would make the first quarter the lowest quarter since the “polar vortex” impacted Q1 of 2015, and the third worst GDP quarter since Q4 2012. It means one-third of already low Q1 GDP growth has just been wiped away.” 
Moments ago the Atlanta Fed which models concurrent GDP, slashed its Q1 GDP from 1.4% (and 1.9% last week) to a number not even we expected: a paltry 0.6%, which would match the “polar vortexed” GDP print from Q1 2015
Should the number drop even more, will be the lowest since Q1 of 2014 when the US economy suffered its most recent contraction of nearly -1%. - Zerohedge

Gold sales about to ramp up in India as jeweler strike ends with agreement over import duty

With the world's largest population of gold buyers about to shift into high gear following the end of a jewelers strike that has hampered sales of the metal within India, the price of gold is expected to make a sharp move upwards due to the resurgence of people more than ready to purchase tons of the metal for ceremonies, holidays, and personal acquisition.

In a strike that has seen the jewelry industry battle government regulators over import duty taxes and restrictions to gold, a compromise was reached on March 21 that should begin to have significant effects on the price and supply of the metal worldwide.


Major news in the gold market over the weekend. With the world’s largest gold-consuming nation reaching an agreement to resume metal sales for the first time in nearly three weeks. 
That’s in India. A critical gold consumer globally, where buying had been idled since the beginning of March by a nation-wide strike by the jewelry sector.  
But that strike is now officially over. With the president of India Bullion and Jewelers Association, Mohit Kamboj, announcing late Saturday that jewellers have reached an agreement with the government to return to work.  
Details are still emerging, but here’s one of the most critical takeaways: as part of the back-to-work deal, the Indian government will not roll back the1% sales tax on gold that it announced in a surprise move as part of its February 29 budget.  
That sales tax had been the major trigger for the jewelers strike. But it appears that India’s gold sellers have relented on demands that the government shelve the extra levy.
Whatever the case, the good news for the gold market is that India will now be buying again — for the first time since February. Which should give a lift to gold prices — especially with reports suggesting there is a lot of “pent up” demand here after the 19-day strike. - Pierce Points

Whether it is physical gold or paper gold ETFs, everyone is jumping on the bull market bandwagon

Here in the alternative media, when it comes to gold we try to advocate one important point... if you don't hold it, you don't own it, and thus we always cite the importance of owning physical gold rather than futures contracts or equity based ETF's.

But most Americans still don't have a true understanding of the power of physical gold, and instead trust in their brokers to provide them good information for both investing, and wealth protection.  And as the price of gold has moved into bull market territory, even brokers who have dissuaded their clients in the past to refrain from buying gold are now changing their tune to recommend gold as an asset in the paper markets.
Yesterday marked the 40th day in a row that total known holdings of Gold in ETFs rose. Not since January 6th has the precious metal seen a reduction in holdings. This is the longest streak of increased holdings since ETFs were born...

The expectations that gold will once again become a recognized form of money are growing, but this time when it does it will no longer be restricted to a price determined by governments, but instead by the market which will use it as a checks and balance against paper fiat currencies.
(GB) Do you think that gold and silver are actual money? 
(PS) They are not actual money now. Right now we have pieces of paper that used to be redeemable in gold and silver but are now not redeemable in anything as money. I think gold and silver would be used as money if we had a free market, but unfortunately we don’t. I think that when the collapse in the dollar occurs, there will be a widespread return to using gold and silver as money, or at least having other currencies backed by gold and silver as money again. With today’s technology the transition will be much easier than if we had tried to do this in the 80’s or 90’s. 
(GB) That said, do you recommend people to buy physical precious metals? 
(PS) Absolutely. If anyone has been following me for any time they should know that I do not put a lot of faith in fiat currencies. While there are some currencies that are relatively better than others, the reality is that all currencies are fiat at the end of the day and therefore subject to fall all the way to zero. I personally think the dollar is the most dangerous currency of all because of what the Federal Reserve has been doing for years at unprecedented levels. Gold and silver offer the only protection from outright currency collapse and bank failure. What we saw in 2007-2008 was just small taste of what is to come. Gold and silver are the only assets which can offer you protection from such an event and actually increase your wealth. I recommend putting anywhere from 5- 20% of your liquid net worth in gold and silver. - Peter Schiff interview via Silver Doctors

Gold prices are up over 20 percent against nearly all major currencies since beginning of the year

Yesterday I wrote about how gold had moved into a Bull Market since its lows back in December of 2015.  The definition of a bull market is when an asset increases by at least 20% from its low.

But a new report out by Mark O'Byrne at Goldcore is showing that gold has not only moved up by more than 20% in the U.S., it has also become a bull market against nearly every major currency including the Euro, the British Pound, and the Yen.

So to put it in perspective, the entire world is now rushing into gold... as an investment, as a safe haven, and because it is the best performing asset in 2016.

Gold has surged another 4% this week to bring year to date gains to 20% in dollar terms, 19% in euro terms and 24% in sterling terms. We were interviewed by PickingAlpha.com yesterday afternoon and looked at what is currently driving gold prices higher in all currencies. 
The sudden rise of gold prices and whether it is sustainable was considered. As was the British economy in the run up to Brexit referendum and the vulnerability of sterling due to the second largest current account deficit in the UK's post war history and London's property bubble. 
The impact of the Chinese slowdown and the 1% rise of the Indian Duty tax, followed by country’s numerous jewelers’s strike and the outlook for Chinese and Indian demand were also looked at. 
Gold is the strongest currency in the world so far this year. Gold prices began the year at $1,062.25/oz, €974.32 and £716.36 per ounce.  Prices have surged in all currencies internationally and today's AM fix was $1,271.50, €1,158.67  and £898.93 per ounce. Or to put it more correctly, fiat currencies are being devalued and again losing value versus gold ...  as they do over the long term. - Zerohedge

Gold makes it back to Bull Market status

It has been a long five years, but for the first time since it reached an all-time high of $1940 in 2011, gold has officially returned to a bull market on March 3.

Gold prices have climbed 21% since their December lows, and last week moved over its Golden Cross technical.

This move into bull market territory has also not been lost on the mainstream, where J.P. Morgan issued a Buy call for gold yesterday as well, and to diversify out of stocks into the precious metal.

Got Karatbars? Central banks and hedge fund gobbling up gold bullion at rates not seen since the early 1970's

In two different eras in recent memory, governments and central banks worked in tandem to dissuade people from accumulating gold by both destroying the price, and by using negative propaganda to make precious metals appear to be a worthless asset.  Those two time periods were the early 1980's and the past five years starting in 2011.

But when it comes to gold, it is only false perceptions that have allowed its value to deteriorate in relation to currencies like the dollar and euro.  And while a large portion of the American and European populations divested themselves of precious metals following the advent of Quantitative Easing and zero interest rates, behind the scenes the gold that was being sold off here was quickly being bought up in the East, and by peoples outside the West who saw the depressed prices as a golden opportunity to hedge against the monetary destruction being implemented in the U.S. and in Europe.

One of the more interesting cases in the gold selloff was with a hedge fund known as the Permanent Fund, which leading up to 2011 had accumulated over 1.4 million physical ounces of U.S. gold eagles in its possession.  And like many who began to dump their gold following QE, ZIRP, and the drop in price from the all-time high of $1940, Permanent Fund became a key contributor in facilitating the fall in price by dumping their inventory onto the market.

But as with all cycles in the business model and in history, eventually the circle comes back around and a new study into the two entities that were prime instigators in the selling off of gold since the beginning of the century, both central banks and Permanent Fund, are now not only accumulating it once again, but are doing so at rates not seen since the period between the end of the gold standard in 1971, and the implementation of 20% interest rates in 1980.
While "greed was good" in the '80s, it appears "gold is good" in the new normal. As much as the barbarous relic is despised by all the mainstream money-peddlers in public (aside from those who have left the familia like Alan Greenspan), it seems to be loved in private. Central banks have been net buyers of gold for eight straight years, according to IMF estimates, the longest streak since the first troops were deployed in The Vietnam War
As Bloomberg notes, Russia, China and Kazakhstan among the biggest hoarders, International Monetary Fund data show. Countries purchased almost 590 metric tons last year, accounting for 14 percent of annual global bullion demand, the World Gold Council estimates. Central bankers are using the metal to diversify from currencies, particularly the dollar, said Stefan Wieler, a Toronto-based vice president at GoldMoney Inc., a financial bullion services firm. - Zerohedge


Chart: Bloomberg

There is only one reason why a central bank would accumulate physical gold when they have the legal capacity to print paper money at will, and that is to prepare for a return to a gold standard.  And when this will occur, or how long it will be before it takes place may be intrinsically tied to how quickly the next financial crisis comes to the global monetary system.  And ever since the beginning of 2016, analysts by the dozens have pinpointed this year and possibly into the next as being inevitable for a full scale collapse to take place which will force the current paper money system to either die off, or have to change.


As the saying goes, millions of people can't be wrong, and it makes no difference if those people are in the U.S., Europe, India, or the Far East.  And for those people who are paying attention to what is really occurring in the global monetary system, their choice to buy physical gold at a time when central banks are working desperately to keep people in paper money and paper assets means that they will not only be protecting their wealth from negative interest rates, bail-ins, capital controls, and inflation, but it also means they will have the one true asset that will allow them to come out way ahead when gold is once again recognized as the basis of real money, and the foundation for the system that emerges out of our debt induced wreckage.

So how can you get into physical gold when convenience and affordability are major factors in choosing whether to protect your wealth or continue trusting in governments and the paper market system?

You can so this with a company called Karatbars




Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.


The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?

To learn more about Karatbars, you can contact the individual who sent you this article, and click on their referral link to open a free account and begin buying, or building your own gold savings or business with the company of the future.

Germany's biggest financial institution Deutsche Bank tells investors to buy gold

Was it prudence or capitulation that led Germany's largest, and invariably most insolvent financial institution Deutsche Bank to tell their investors on Feb. 26 to buy gold?  But either way this recommendation could not have come at a better time.  This is because two days ago gold hit what it known as a 'Golden Cross' on technical charts, meaning the trend for prices is upwards and headed towards a strong bull market.

And perhaps most importantly, Deutsche Bank stands on the precipice of not only becoming bankrupt themselves, but they have the potential to take down many major banks in Europe and the United States due to their $70 trillion in derivative exposure.


Buy gold as “insurance is warranted” Deutsche Bank have advised in a note issued today.  
The embattled German bank has said that rising economic risks and market turmoil mean investors should buy gold for insurance.
Since the beginning of the year gold is by far the market's best performing asset, and in a recent look at historic trends is the best start for a year since 1980 when it completed a massive bull run from $35 per ounce to $850 an ounce over the course of a decade.

Watch for gold to spike upwards this weekend as India may remove import duties on the precious metal

By a long shot, India is and has been one of the largest gold buyers and collectors in the world.  But over the past two years government officials have slowed down their purchasing through a series of draconian duties on gold imports that have driven the population to change course and accumulate silver at record levels.

This weekend however may change this course once again as it is expected that the import tariffs that suffocated the flow of gold into the markets will be removed, causing the potential for a $50 spike in gold to over $1300 in the short term, and a medium term price rise to over $1400.
All lights for gold are green, and rather than beginning a correction, gold may be poised to intensify its rally. 
Investors with widely differing views on gold all seem to be pressing their buy buttons at the same time. That’s something that has not happened in a long time. The bottom line is this: 
Key bank economists are forecasting a new upcycle for commodities, which will begin later this year, India may cut the import duty on Sunday night (February 28), Shanghai prepares to launch its gold price fix, gold ETFs are adding serious tonnage, the chartists are happy, and most discussion of US interest rate policy (whether hawkish or dovish) is bullish for gold. - Silver Doctors
In addition to this, all eyes in the precious metal world are focusing on April when China's physical gold market, the Shanghai Gold Exchange, is expected to begin pricing gold in Yuan rather than dollars, and setting in motion the end of U.S. and London hegemony over determination of gold prices.

Karatbars affiliate V, the Guerrilla Economist interview on SGT Reports

Late yesterday, our very own Karatbar affiliate V, the Guerrilla Economist spoke in an interview over at SGT Reports on NIRP (negative interest rates), and what will happen to gold as people rush out of the banking system and into the safe haven of precious metals.


And like V's assessments, others are also forecasting the coming super rise in gold prices due to failing central bank policies and a new oncoming global collapse.

Earlier this month, as retail investors lost confidence in the global economy and broader stock markets, an air of panic began to set in. Reports indicate the lines were literally forming around the block at gold stores throughout London and elsewhere. It was, by all accounts, the very scenario one might expect in an environment where trust in government and central banks has been eroded. 
But it’s only the beginning, explains Auryn Resources executive chairman Ivan Bebek in an interview with SGT Report, as nation states and large investors are trying to get their hands on gold as fast as they can: 
Before any big move in gold we have always seen extreme volatility or volatility pick up. This was just a taste of what’s to come in the next few years… We’ll look back at this and be reflecting on how minimal this move was compared to what’s going to happen as we go forward… 
It’s a smart money trend… they can see where their countries are going… where the world economy is going… it’s surprising how late they are to the party… late to a very small door to get a bit of gold that’s out there… it’s going to be a remarkable reaction when that all comes to fruition. They’re just positioning themselves for what’s to come and that’s what they have to do. And getting back into the gold trade, the gold business and hoarding gold… they’re doing that because they see a very big gold market coming ahead like the rest of us. - SHTFPlan

JP Morgan analyst admits people having more confidence in gold than in paper money

Feb. 11 was a watershed day for gold as the metal rose more than $60 at its peak to have its best single day in seven years, and the second highest single day move in history.  And according to many analysts, including one over at JP Morgan, this rise is not an anomaly, and is showing that people are finally losing confidence in paper currencies and rushing as fast as they can into gold.
There is a serious credit contraction underway, I think [Yellen] should acknowledge that. I think she has to look at the capital base being wiped off the banks in this downdraft and equities: that's not supposed to be happening right now. They're supposed to be bulletproof, and oh, by the way, gold at $1,200 an ounce, what does that tell you? It tells you that in a flight to quality, in a safe haven, people have more confidence in gold than in bank deposits or paper money. I think things have gotten out of control." - Zerohedge
This assessment is certainly true in both China and London where some bullion dealers experienced a rush into gold so great, people were lining out around the block just for the chance to purchase dwindling supplies.
London-based ATS Bullion added it had been inundated with orders for the past week. The firm has sold 4,000 gold bars and coins since February 1, a 40pc rise on the same period a year ago when it sold 1,500.  
"It's been crazy - it's been the best week since 2012. We've had people queuing round the block," said Michael Cooper of ATS Bullion, a family run firm that trades online and also from an outlet in the West End. - Telegraph

Comex gold pricing mechanism being used to cover up the ongoing financial crisis

In a short presentation on Feb. 5, famed metals analyst Mike Maloney details how the Comex futures market be the mechanism that is being used to cover up an ongoing financial collapse in the global markets.  And judging by the reaction yesterday alone for gold, which was pushed down using 1.2 billion to naked short the market only to retrace the $20 it lost and end the trading day up $18.00, shows that even this institution is losing its ability to sway investors away from precious metals and as a hedge to protect the declining dollar.

Got Karatbars? As stocks fall into Bear market levels, and economies fall into recession, gold is moving once again

Ownership of gold has always meant different things to different people.  In India for example, it is not only an important part of everyday culture, it is also where most people hold their wealth in the form of jewelry.  In fact, it is estimated that Indian households own over 20,000 tons of gold, at an current value of around $950 billion.

But in the U.S. and Europe, gold ownership fell following its removal from currencies in 1971, and even the Internal Revenue Service categorizes physical gold simply as a collectible, and not as an investment or money.  And the mania that drove gold prices up to $1980 just a few years ago was built on fear of the financial meltdown that occurred in 2008 when stocks, bonds, and debt threatened to collapse the entire banking system.



Yet that philosophy is now changing, and especially since early 2015.  And with gold and even silver purchases exploding from hedge funds, banks, and a growing coalition of citizens, shortages have been created that have not only stabilized gold prices at a strong bottom, but have secured support to where these prices are beginning to rise despite the concerted effort of the government to depress them in the paper markets.  And as falling stocks, bonds, the fear of a global recession, and the failing confidence in central banks begins to accelerate, gold is once again becoming the one asset to own as wealth protection is now more important than chasing yields, or trying to invest in chaotic markets.
The $15 trillion rout in global equity markets since May is reawakening the lure of gold for investors seeking safety. 
Hedge funds and other large speculators more than doubled their net-long position in bullion last week, just three weeks after they were the most-bearish ever.

Ownership of precious metals have always been a mainstay of a diversified portfolio until brokers and money managers chose to eliminate this option and push investors and retirees into strictly paper based assets.  But the problem today is that all that paper is tied to the dollar, and what happens if the dollar itself is the thing to collapse as many analysts are predicting will happen in the coming months or years?  Because the collapse of the dollar would make all these investments and retirement accounts insolvent, worth zero, or at the very least lose 40-70% of their value as the replacing currency would have to be devalued to accommodate the massive amount of debt owned by Wall Street and the Federal government.

So how can you be assured in protecting your wealth and owning affordable physical gold in a way that protects you from all market chaos, and from any potential currency collapse?

You can do all of this with a company called Karatbars



Buying gold through Karatbars is one of the easiest things on the net.  In fact, the business model of Karatbars is to sell gold in affordable quantities, such as 1, 2.5, and 5 gram increments, and allow customers to get into the metal without having to shell out $1200+ for a single ounce coin.

And as added perks to signing up with Karatbars, as a customer or affiliate, Karatbars is working on a new e-wallet system that functions just like an offshore bank account, and is outside the authority of the banking system.  From there, you can take your fiat currency in any denomination... dollars, euros, yen, etc... and purchase physical gold which can either be delivered directly to you, or stored for free at one of Karatbar's vaults.

Additionally, any gold that you buy can easily be sold back to Karatbars, or any metals dealer, and if with Karatbars it is then exchanged for currency that is uploaded to you through a pre-loaded debit Mastercard which is connected directly to your e-wallet.  And as we know, MasterCard is recognized in nearly every country around the world, and usable in any currency that accepts it.

But perhaps the best feature with Karatbars is their affiliate program, where you can earn money off commissions from getting others to sign up and become a customer or affiliate.  Not only do you receive commissions from their purchasing of physical gold, but you also earn commissions from anyone who buys a commission package, with that money going directly into your debit MasterCard when you have enough units to cycle.

Imagine the ability to earn the money in which to buy your gold savings simply by purchasing a commission affiliate package one time, and then getting others to sign up and do the same thing.

How many businesses or entrepreneurs can build an infinite business with spending less than $400 of their own money?  And there is never a mandatory requirement to buy beyond what you desire, on your own schedule.  And there is nothing to lose, because you're using money (paper dollars) to buy gold (physical money) and in the end you don't lose a thing.


The global financial system, along with dozens of respected economists, are telling us that now is the time for the end of our current form of money, and the beginning of the transition into a new monetary system that is expected to be backed by gold.  And with banks, governments, and even Harvard professors mandating that central banks have no choice but to eliminate cash from usage by the people to stave off collapse, will you wait until it is too late to make a decision on how you will protect your wealth, and be able to function within the coming new monetary system?
