silver maple sales

In a surprising update, Canadian Silver Maple Leaf sales for the first half of 2014 surpassed sales during the same period last year According to the Royal Canadian Mint’s Q2 2014 Report, just released, sales of Silver Maples hit a new record of 15.4 million ounces in the first half of the year.
In the first half of 2014, combined U.S. Silver Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf sales hit a new record of 39.5 million ounces Even though this is only up slightly higher at an additional 500,000 oz compared to 39 million in 1H 2013, it is still positive growth while Gold Eagle and Gold Maple sales are down a staggering 54%.

It appears Wall Street fantasy has combined with Hollywood realism to produce an escalating melodrama of otherworldly fictional distortions on a genuinely dystopian Earth.
When it comes to orchestrating an elaborate hoax to conceal mass extinction of humanity,  expect the extraordinary.  Expect the unexpected.  Expect something you will likely be overwhelmed by.  Something you have never conceived in your own mind.
Beware that 911 was a coded declaration of war against the people.  The central and primary weapon has already been declared and has been fully activated.   The war is deception.

Jim Willie joined TFMetalsReport this weekend for a special holiday podcast.   In this excellent report from the Hat Trick Letter editor, Willie discusses:

  • This week’s announcement by Gazprom that they will begin accepting payment in rubles and yuan
  • The escalation of US and EU sanctions against Russia and how they are failing/backfiring
  • Willie explains the US’ motives for provoking Russia via Ukraine: To entice Russia to prematurely move to place the Ruble into a reserve currency status, and ultimately, to blame Putin/Russia for the coming US dollar collapse!
  • The growing isolation of the US as a economic superpower
  • The eventual emergence of a new global currency regime & collapse of the dollar

The following story is a warning as to why centralized power is so dangerous.  It doesn’t matter whether the power is political or corporate, overly centralized power in all forms must be resisted whenever it appears.
The worst of all worlds is when centralized political and corporate power unite in an unholy alliance, which is what has happened to America in recent decades.
The primary problem with centralized power is that sociopaths (for obvious reasons) gravitate toward, and greatly covet, positions of power.
When this occurs, the combined forces of oligarchy simply begin to rapaciously feast on the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of the United States in 2014.
Enter Timothy DeFoggi, the one-time cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who received several awards for his government “service” over the years.  The self-proclaimed man of “many perversions,” frequented a child porn site called PedoBook where he “exchanged private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers.”

You’re probably thinking, why does everyone put up with it?  Why don’t they just stop taking payment in U.S. dollars for their oil?  Why don’t they walk away from the entire system, altogether?
What do you think this current financial war is all about?  That’s right, it’s all about whether the rest of the world will be able to live their lives free from the oppression of the U.S. Petro-dollar system.
But, let me answer your a question with a question of my own:
You don’t honestly think that the crooks in the Federal Reserve, or D.C. in general, are going to give up this “exorbitant privilege” of having the world’s reserve currency, without a fight, do you?
After all, several countries have already tried to break away and escape from this system, and the results for each of those countries were deadly disasters!

gold

The pattern of trading in precious metals changed for the better this past week.
August is a notoriously poor trading month, with traders in the northern hemisphere on holiday, or at least not thinking about markets.
September is wake-up time, and statistically the best month for gold.
Will this be the pattern this year?

The current bubbles in financial assets — in equities and bonds of all grades and quality — raging in every major market across the globe are no accident.   They are a deliberate creation. The intentional results of policy.
Therefore, when they burst, we shouldn’t regard the resulting damage as some freak act of nature or other such outcome outside of our control. To reiterate, the carnage will be the very predictable result of some terribly shortsighted decision-making and defective logic.
Blame can and should be laid where it belongs: with the central banks.

  • Chinese silver inventories decimated in Shanghai, while US & Royal Canadian Mint sales remain on pace for all-time sales records
  • The Doc puts Ebola death totals in perspective- Are the powers that be manufacturing a crisis to usher in martial law & restrict American travel, or are we facing a bonafide Ebola contagion?

  • With gold & silver refusing to break down on the thinly traded last week of summer, we look ahead to gold & silver trading when the traders and bullion banks return to their desks Tuesday- is the long await rally dead ahead?

The Secret Gold Cycle

Get Ready for a Fall 2014 World Commodity Bull Market Breakout! 

Cycle analysis indicates the third and final 7-year tidal wave of the 21 year Grand Tsunami Gold Bull Market cycle began this past July 2014;  Gold has been consolidating in the 7th year of sabbatical rest within a Symmetric Triangle and one final push lower is still possible before a breakout arrives this fall 2014 that lead to World Commodity Bull Market Breakouts!
There remains a very probable possibility of a commodity inflationary price spike and should this inflationary spike occur, Gold would easily achieve $2000 by year end.
If no inflationary spike arrives in 2014 (as cycle analysis favors it will occur) expect Gold to still close the year closer to $2000 than $1300.
The 7-year Gold cycle dictates a THIRD Gold Bull Market breakout comes this fall 2014 and runs for the next 7-years into the year 2020-2021!  This THIRD and final Bull Market cycle will be nothing like the prior two 7-year cycles.  Do not expect either of the 2 prior 7-year cycle tops to match the THIRD.  In the end, the THIRD cycle will once again add up to 7-years and all 3 cycles will add up to one grand 21-year tsunami as Gold hits $10,000+!

While the Comex utilizes highly leveraged paper contracts to control the price of silver, physical metal continues to be drained out of the Shanghai Futures Exchange.  In just one week, total inventory has declined by another 24%.
At the beginning of August, there were 148 metric tons of silver on warrant at the Shanghai Futures Exchange.  In just three weeks, 29% of the total inventory was removed.
The majority of this decline took place last week when 22 metric tons were withdrawn on Friday alone.

Wall Street banks are getting hit by cyber attacks every single minute of every single day.  It is a massive onslaught that is not highly publicized because the bankers do not want to alarm the public.  But as you will see below, one big Wall Street bank is spending 250 million dollars a year just by themselves to combat this growing problem.
The truth is that our financial system is not nearly as stable as most Americans think that it is.  We have become more dependent on technology than ever before, and that comes with a potentially huge downside.
An EMP or a massive cyberattack could conceivably take down part or all of our banking system at any time.
