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?

Mainstream business analysts finally get on board with Bitcoin as they start to advocate ownership of cryptocurrencies in clients portfolios

It is ironic that as mainstream business shows such as CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox Business News vilified Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies for years, they are all of a sudden now getting on board once the digital currencies showed themselves to be the best performing assets of 2017.

Yet this acknowledgement of Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple, and many other crypto's being a viable investment appears to be only the beginning as more and more investment managers are advocating to their clients that cryptocurrencies need to be a vital part of their investment portfolios.

Boris Schlossberg of BK Asset Management has joined the cadre of investment advisors who see bitcoin as a way for investors to hedge their bets against market uncertainty. Schlossberg, according to CNBC, sees bitcoin as an addition to an investment portfolio in the wake of political uncertainty. 
Schlossberg sees parallels between bitcoin and gold, and he noted that bitcoin is being called the “new gold,” due to its ability to retain value over time. 
He noted that bitcoin is holding steady following its 92% rally this year. Speaking Wednesday on “Trading Nation,” Schlossberg said the cryptocurrency is holding at steady highs, and that when there is a big move for any type of instrument, there is usually some continuation. 
Bitcoin is clearly signaling more demand, Schlossberg observed. He favors it as a hedge play moving forward. - Crypto Coins News
Additionally, a contributor to CNBC on May 28 analyzed Bitcoin the same way he would an investment and highlighted the risk - reward potential that it and other cryptocurrencies offer.
"I wish I’d invested in Bitcoin," is a response I usually hear when I tell people how much they could have made off the cryptocurrency if they had bought it at the start. Just to be clear, if you bought US$100 worth of Bitcoin in 2010 when it was worth 0.003 cents each, you’d be sitting on more than $88 million. 
It all sounds so easy. But for regular investors in Bitcoin - those not heavily involved in the cryptocurrency world - Bitcoin has a confusing reputation. It’s known to be highly volatile with wild price swings, but at the same time some, such as Bobby Lee, the co-founder and chief executive of Bitcoin exchange BTCC, have called it a safe-haven asset. 
"When the existing money system has problems, people turn to Bitcoin, sort of like people used to go to gold in the old days," Mr Lee told CNBC in a recent interview. - The National AE
While most in the crypto world believes Bitcoin is a currency, most of Wall Street and the rest of the mainstream financial world believes it to be a security.  And with more and more brokers and institutions starting to advocate its purchase and ownership of cryptos in personal and joint portfolios, the volatility will continue to be high, and everyone who owns a cryptocurrency must respect this and trade accordingly.

First hedge fund managers, and now stock brokers advising clients to buy physical gold

When several billionaires and hedge fund managers like George Soros, Stanley Drunkenmiller, and even Lord Rothschild began purchasing gold in their portfolios, and advocating it for their clients, the lid was fully removed as confirmation of the new precious metal bull market.

But it appears that the next phase is now taking shape for the mainstream's buying into the gold bull rally as stock investment broker Charles Schwab this week suggested to their clients that the time is right to buy physical gold as a key component in their investment portfolios.


A Guide to Investing in Gold 
Learn about why gold is considered to be so valuable as well as various vehicles that allow you to hold an interest in gold. 
By: Schwab Trading Services 
Investors and traders have long held a great fascination with gold. Some of this fascination is no doubt related to the mystique that surrounds the yellow metal. Some of it is also due to the intrinsic value involved in holding a piece of essentially indestructible metal. In any event, due to its unique qualities, gold has long offered investors a one-of-a-kind investment opportunity. 
In this guide we will discuss the reasons why this has been, why it remains so, and why gold will remain a unique investment opportunity far into the future. But even more importantly we will also detail a variety of investment vehicles available that can allow you to hold an interest in gold and to participate in bullish and/or bearish price movements in the world’s most renowned precious metal. 
The decisions regarding if, when, and how to allocate investment capital to gold are personal ones. The purpose of this guide is not to tell you when or even whether to make such a commitment, nor to tell you which investment vehicle to choose. The goal of this guide is simply to provide you with an understanding of: 
1. Reasons why an investment in gold may be right for you. 
2. Primary factors that can affect the price of gold. 
3. Commonly used investment vehicles for trading gold and their relative advantages and disadvantages. - Charles Schwab letter to clients

Got Karatbars? Billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer says everyone should be 5-10% in gold

Paul Singer is a world renowned bond fund manager, and a force that has even taken Argentina to the brink regarding sovereign bonds his fund owns.  But as the paper asset markets begin to hemorrhage, including stocks, bonds, and even the dollar, the billionaire hedge fund manage is now telling everyone that there is a different asset they need to be in.

That asset is gold.  And in your portfolio or wealth savings the metal needs to make up at least 5-10% of your money.
“In a world where the value of paper money is affirmatively aimed at being degraded by central bank policy, it’s kind of surprising to me that gold can’t catch a bid,” the billionaire and member of Bloomberg Markets 50 Most Influential said at a conference in Tel Aviv on Wednesday. “I like gold. I believe its under-owned. It should be a part of every investment portfolio, maybe five to ten percent.” 
Singer took aim at monetary policy makers for a staggered economic recovery from the 2008 financial crisis, and what he called the "cult of central banking" in which investors turn to regulators such as Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi to solve the ills of the global financial system. And while those policies have "levitated" bond and equities, Singer is surprised by how little the investors he meets with own gold. 
Every institutional portfolio should be 5-10 percent invested in gold to protect against zero interest rates that are degrading the value of paper currency, Elliott Management Chief Executive Paul Singer said on Wednesday. 
Gold was the one tradable asset that has been "treated unfairly", he said at the Sohn Investment Conference, adding that his fund holds gold through options. 
"Gold is the only real money," Singer said. "Gold would do well if people felt they needed some real asset to protect against inflation, government policy and/or diversification from stocks and bonds." - Zerohedge
Singer's comments in Israel comes on the same day the dollar reached a 'Death Cross', where its 50 day moving average crossed below its 200 day average.  A death cross is often an indication that an asset is on a downward trend, with this technical indicator not occurring for the U.S. currency since 2013.




Gold prices have been climbing in relation to the dollar, Yen, and Euro since the market downfall back in late August, and along with silver, is being bought by the ton by major banks like J.P. Morgan and HSBC.  And with new expectations of at least $1200 per ounce by the end of the year, and projections of $1400 by the end of next year, the mainstream is slowly changing their tune on gold after years of talking it down, and shorting it in the Comex futures market.


Yet for most people, being able to afford gold at near $1200 per ounce is most often unattainable.  And with few options open since shortages at dealers and brokers are leading to premiums on the spot price of sometimes more than 30%, how can you protect your assets and your wealth in the metal that has proven its value worldwide for over 5000 years?

The answer lies in 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, you can have the power to move your money into a free e-wallet 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?

Ron Paul’s golden portfolio

Have you ever wondered what Ron Paul invests in, and keeps in his portfolio?  If you guessed gold, you would be correct.  If you guessed physical gold and gold mining stocks, you could be Ron Paul’s financial planner.
On Aug 20, a report was published on former Congressman Ron Paul’s stock holdings, and other investment assets.  And as many can guess, Paul’s portfolio is made up of primarily silver and gold mining stocks, with a smattering of real estate and cash.

New report shows that gold is not only prudent but vital to a balanced portfolio

The debate over how to hold a balanced and equitable portfolio has been argued over for ages, with many paradigms being shattered as one economic crisis replaces another.  From buy and hold, to diversification, to high-risk young, low-risk old strategies, the number of ways to invest are as prevelent as the number of brokers.

But a new independant study on investing shows that in today's economic environment, holding and owning gold is not only prudent, but vital for both wealth protection, and system breakdown protection.

The independent research from highly respected New Frontier Advisors (NFA) confirms the importance of gold as a portfolio diversifier to investors in Europe and to investors exposed to the euro.
 During a period of extraordinarily serious economic uncertainty in the Eurozone, continued concerns about economic growth in the US heading into an election year, and the possibility of an economic slowdown in China, the World Gold Council (WGC) wanted to examine the relevance of gold as a strategic asset for euro-based investors to protect their portfolios and to mitigate the systemic risks being faced.
The report, ‘Gold as a strategic asset for European investors’, commissioned by the World Gold Council, explores gold as a strategic asset across five sets of asset allocation studies, including four using historical data spanning 1986 to 2010, and one using the 1999 to 2010 time frame.
 The third party research builds on the now considerable research and academic literature showing that gold adds significant diversifying power due to its low or negative correlation with most other assets in an investment portfolio.
 Gold’s relevance as a strategic asset is continuing to grow. This will continue in a world facing the real risk of a global recession and even a Depression, poor investment returns, currency devaluations and wars and very high monetary and systemic risk.
 Put simply, when used as a foundation asset, gold has preserved wealth throughout history and again today.
 Gold’s unique properties will protect savers and investors in Europe and internationally against the monetary and systemic risks being faced in 2012 and in the coming years. - Goldcore

While this study focusses mostly on Europe, all one in America needs to do is go back three years and see how close our own economic system came from default and collapse.  The environment here and abroad is 10 times worse than 2008, and the opportunities for currency collapse are growing, while gold remains constant as the sole hedge against that collapse, and a vital part of anyone's portfolio in today's market.
