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?

With foreigners avoiding bonds, liquidity should move strongly into gold and silver in second half of the year

With foreigners for the most part selling bonds rather than buying them, signals are flashing that the 30 years bull market in bonds is just about over.  And with foreign economies around the world running into currency problems, slowing growth, and the threat of capital flight, economic Marc Faber believes that a huge portion of foreign capital will be moving into gold and silver in the second half of the year.

Economist Marc Faber, who is known in many circles as Doctor Doom for his oft gloomy forecasts, says that stock markets are overvalued, but stops short of saying that a crash is imminent. Though valuations are high and sentiment is dangerously optimistic, Faber argues in a recent interview with Fox Business that there are huge money flows still making their way into U.S. equities. 
And over the next three to six months Faber says much of that liquidity from foreign and domestic investors may start moving into precious metals and precious metals stocks:
[There won’t be a sell off] in the near future… but if you look at the valuation of stock they’re high. If you look at the valuation of the US dollar it is high… If you look at the money flows in the last few weeks a lot of money has flown into US equities, both from domestic investors and international investors… as a contrarian this is not a particular good sign. 
However, there is a lot of liquidity in the world… the liquidity will move into precious metals and precious metals stocks… so I would be long gold shares, silver shares, platinum and the underlying physical… 
I also think that sentiment is much too optimistic about stocks and far too pessimistic about bonds… - SHTF Plan

When the bond market crashes if just 1% of that money went into precious metals it would empty world supply

A few days ago, the market designated 'Bond King' spoke at an annual economic forum in Chicago and laid out a scenario that if the 10-year Treasury Bond reached and stayed above 2.60%, it would signal the end of the 30+ year bond rally and bring in a bear market that could crash domestic and global bonds around the world.

If the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note moves above 2.60 percent, a secular bear bond market has begun, investor Bill Gross warned on Tuesday. 
"Watch the 2.6 percent level. Much more important than Dow 20,000. Much more important than $60-a-barrel oil. Much more important that the Dollar/Euro parity at 1.00.   
It is the key to interest rate levels and perhaps stock price levels in 2017," Gross wrote in his latest investment outlook to clients.

Yet in addition to the benchmark Treasury Bond potentially shifting into a bear market here in 2017, global bonds are running on the opposite end of the curve where nearly $16 trillion worth of them are priced at negative interest.  And back in June Bill Gross warned that this could lead to a consequence far greater than just a bear market, as it could create an environment in which the entire $82.2 trillion global market could collapse outright.
Gross: Global yields lowest in 500 years of recorded history. $10 trillion of neg. rate bonds. This is a supernova that will explode one day.
Thus 2017 has the potential for two real negative scenarios in a market that is much greater than that of the equity markets.  Because in this era of credit based finance, where nations and central banks must continually create new debt to pay for or roll over existing debt that has now reached a level of 325% of the world's annual GDP, any crack in the bond markets could easily lead to a collapse in the sovereign institutions themselves.

So if this year does see a crisis, or even outright collapse in the U.S. or world bond markets as being predicted by more and more analysts, what asset classes are available for investors, governments, central banks, and individuals to move their money into?

Stocks?  For sure, a large portion of money would rush from the bond market into stocks.  But with PE's now well over 20 since the market spike beginning in September of last year, this market is extremely over-valued even right now.

Real Estate?  Indeed, real estate at the high-end commercial and residential levels are still rising in price, but with overall prices back to the same 2006 levels that signaled the end of the first Housing Bubble, there is still too much risk to make it a good replacement.

So what does that leave for people to move tens of trillions of dollars into that would be of minimal risk and would protect their wealth?  The answer of course is gold, silver, and other precious metals.  But with so many purchasers still buying the metals at nearly all levels (central banks, governments, institutions, and individuals) since the 2008 financial crisis, and spikes in buying going on nearly all the time because of financial crises taking place in India, Venezuela, Britain following Brexit, and even China because of their currency woes, it would not take much money at all to completely wipe out the global supplies remaining in the open markets, and drive the price up to levels that might not even show a bid at all.

In other words, make gold and silver priceless.

China dumps $108 billion in reserves as the Far East economy uses dollars to protect currency

In overnight trading, China experienced an equities meltdown following their largest devaluation of the Yuan since August.  And at the heart of protecting the RMB in this trend of currency intervention is a new report on Jan. 7 which shows that the Far Eastern economy dumped $108 billion in dollar reserves in the month of December, dropping their reserve totals from $3.438 trillion to $3.330 trillion.
Much of this devaluation, equity declines, and dollar dumping are in response to the growing global recession that is not only hitting most emerging markets, but has daisy chained over to Europe and the U.S. where China is now the tail that wags the dog, and for the most part dictates the actions and reactions of the rest of the world that follows their market results.
