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?

Immediately following Brexit results, google searches to 'buy gold' soared 500% as investors broke towards only real safe haven

One of the primary reasons that gold shot up to $1940 following the 2008 Credit Crisis and subsequent stock crash is because long standing safe havens like currencies, bonds, and real estate no longer provided an outlet during a time of financial crisis.  And while these three asset classes eventually recovered between 2011 and 2016 thanks solely to central bank interventions, when the next crisis or black swan would come as it did on June 24, monetary conditions were so levered up that they once again were unable to act as an outlet or safe haven for one's wealth once the carnage began in nearly all markets.

And this showed up in a most powerful way as immediately following the referendum vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, searches on google for the terms 'buy gold' shot up over 500%.

According to Google, the number of internet searches for the phrase "buy gold" spiked by 500% after the Brexit results trickled through around 5am. Investors flocked to the safe haven asset during Asian trading while the pound plummeted to a 31-year low. 
Today, as is customary after the fact, everyone was euphoric on gold: "gold could rise to $1,400 whilst other precious metals such as platinum, offer attractive fundamentals," said James Butterfill, head of research & investment strategy at ETF Securities. Virtually every other investment bank followed suit and even Goldman came out, when the traditionally goldophobic bank had no choice but to raise its gold price target following today's meteoric gold surge. 
Which is great, however all of it was, as noted,  after the fact. 
The truth as all those who buy gold after the devaluation learn, is that for gold to be a store of value and preserve purchasing power it has to be acquired before some catastrophic, devaluing event, which as yesterday's Brexit showed, tends to be utterly unpredictable. - Zerohedge
Sadly, Americans and most Westerners tend to wait until after the fact to prepare themselves for a crisis, even with days, weeks, or months of advance warning that the disaster was on the horizon.  And whether that crisis occurs from nature, war, financial or any myriad of other inevitable events, those willing to prepare in advance will not only be sufficiently protected before it happens, but will also be able to afford their preparations at much cheaper prices when the sudden rush into commodities like gold leave the majority out in the cold as supplies and prices become out of reach.

CNBC All-American economic survey has more investors choosing gold over stocks

Each quarter CNBC surveys a number of of American investors to determine key data points in regards to finance, the economy, politics, and investing.  And similar to the survey they put out three months ago, more investors prefer to buy gold over stocks.

Real estate remained the number one choice for investors, but this asset class has risen primarily due to the newest housing bubble that began in 2011 from central bank money printing and zero percent interest rates.  But it is the major shift away from stocks and into gold over the past six months that has many investors believing the economy is headed towards a downturn, and that stocks in general are overpriced in their own equity bubble.

Interestingly as well when you break down the numbers, those who intend to vote for Donald Trump have a much greater desire to own gold and divest themselves from stocks than those who want to see Hillary Clinton win the November election.  And this shows the fact that many Americans believe something is wrong in both the government and the economy, and are choosing outsiders (gold and Trump) in their investment and political choices.

Millennials trust more in gold than in stocks in new survey

Every quarter, CNBC does a special report that they call the All-American Economic Survey.  And in their newest one on Nov. 3, investing trends for millennials showed an immense opposition to stocks and more trust in both real estate and gold.
Part of this appears to be the fact that many millennials have grown up in the decades of the dot com bust and the 2008 credit crisis which saw their parents and grandparents lose upwards of 40% of their retirement portfolios tied to the stock markets.  And with the millennial generation known for truth and straight talk over political correctness and subterfuge, perhaps it is not surprising that the younger generation has a much greater distrust in banks and Wall Street, and has little appetite for riskier investments, especially since the markets are manipulated so highly by the Fed and by HFT computer trading.

New York realtors using Bitcoin to fuel the real estate bubble

Never let it be said that businesses and investors will ever be short of opportunities to spend their money, especially in this era of Fed induced cheap currency.  Like foreign and domestic casinos that allow gamblers to bet on such esoteric things like what time the newest heir to the throne of England would be born, to Wall Street firms opening a bond fund to speculate on the success of ex-convicts, people with money will always be willing to seek profits when standard markets no longer look good.

So it should come as no surprise that a real estate broker in New York City is jumping on the Bitcoin bandwagon, and opening up a new channel for home buyers in the realm of luxury housing to use the digital currency to expand the re-inflated housing bubble and keep the exuberance going.
