ebola

A top Ebola scientist that is working in the heart of the outbreak in Liberia says that this version of Ebola looks like it could be “a very different bug” from past versions.
If what you will read about below is true, we could be dealing with some sort of “super Ebola” that nobody has ever seen before.

As part of our weekly webinar series, it was a distinct pleasure and honor to welcome Eric Sprott.
In this wide-ranging, 47-minute discussion, Eric offers his comments and analysis on:

  • Chinese gold demand and the continuing drawdown of the GLD.
  • Market conditions needed to facilitate an expansion of the PHYS and/or PSLV.
  • The mining stocks. Eric also offers his key metrics for evaluating miners that can make it through this current downturn.
  • What mistakes we’ve made over the past three years and how to prepare for the future.
  • The ongoing deviation of the gold: silver from historical norms.

Argentina

Although the productive class of Argentina is no stranger to being vilified by a populist government whose grasp on power rests on praising the dignity of poverty, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has managed to take things to an entirely new level.

smash

The Federal Reserve and bullion banks, through decades of body-slamming the silver “market”, have actually removed silver so far from “Bubble” status, that you couldn’t see it with the Hubble telescope!
Instead of expanding upward and outward, it has been forced inward and downward, through the numerous crimes of these crooked institutions.
In fact, silver has become something far more unusual
: it has become a reverse/inverse bubble.
It has far undershot any sane and fair valuations.  It hasn’t just limbo-ed under the bar of rightful value, it has taken the subway, and then jumped down a mineshaft, and crawled safely 5 miles below those bars of rightful value!
The true bubble in the world is the 1 quadrillion(1,000 trillion) dollar OTC derivative market.
The true bubble in the world is the U.S. treasury market.
The true bubble in the world is the U.S. dollar, which is simply a debt unit that the U.S. treasuries are measured in.
Those real bubbles have been propelled where they are, by governments and banks simultaneously smashing silver’s price through the earth’s crust.
But all those bubbles are about to meet a hard, silver wall of reality.
Silver’s moment will arrive.

gold bottom

This bottom may be the longest yet.
This is psychological warfare and does not resemble the true PM physical market at all but it is contrived through manipulation to depress speculation so that physical buyers will stay away from PMs and trust bonds and equities while Ebola and ISIS rip up the daily headlines.
The DOW is off 1,000 points in just a few days, fear of deadly disease or decapitation stories is gripping the news and gold and silver have plummeted?

Does any of this make any sense?  FEAR UP, gold down?
Can you spell M-A-N-I-P-U-L-A-T-I-O-N ?
Stay thirsty for physical, my friends, the day of redemption draws near!

sovereign man

With a combined position of nearly $2 trillion in US government debt, against which they hold little or no capital buffer, US banks are now EXTREMELY vulnerable to a bond market sell-off.
The global economy shivered when the consequences of lending to subprime homebuyers came to fruition.
Just imagine how it will quake when the US government – the largest subprime borrower in history – eventually defaults (or hyperinflates) its debt away.

There’s nowhere in the world the tremors won’t be felt.

  • Outlook for gold & silver- Will precious metals stay low?
  • Who is responsible- Are China and India manipulating precious metals?

china

The surge in foreigners buying up U.S. real estate has been well documented in recent years. Of all this buying, no nation has demonstrated a bigger increase in purchases than China. In fact, it is estimated that 24% of all foreign purchases of domestic real estate this year have come from China, up 72% from last year.  In some California communities, 90% of real estate buyers are from China. Yes, 90%.   Naturally, many of them are buying multi-million dollar homes in “all cash” transactions.
Well it appears that one of those communities is the 57,000 person Los Angeles suburb known as Arcadia.
The suburb had a relatively insignificant Asian population of 4% in 1980, but it is now 59%.

The outlook for gold is now more positive than it has been for some time. After a prolonged period of low volatility as funds invested in ever-greater risk, markets have snapped and volatility has jumped.
In short, we are swinging very suddenly from complacency to reality.

GATA’s Chris Powell joins us this week for a power packed show discussing:

  • Powell’s view on the endgame- Central banks will revaluate gold upwards substantially overnight, after which the gold suppression will start again from a much higher level  
  • Massive Chinese gold accumulation: China doesn’t want a free market, they want control of the gold market!
  • If Gold & Silver Markets Are Not Rigged, They Are the Only Markets Not Rigged- Free markets are restraints on Central bank power!
  • Physical vs. certificate bullion- Chris asserts that if you’re taking certificates at a bullion bank, you might as well flush your money down the toilet!  
  • Physical PM investors are fighting every central bank in the world- they won’t relinquish their power easily until the last ounce of metal is drained from the markets.
  • Is the collapse of the fiat system imminent, or will the struggle against Central banks go on for decades?

swat milk raid

President Obama, who has notably ignored our open Southern border, welcomed illegal aliens, and refused to institute a travel ban from Ebola-ridden countries, has a hardcore solution for Americans who are potentially suffering from Ebola.
He’ll just increase the police state another notch:

The world’s financial markets are changing dramatically with the Federal Reserve on the verge of ending its third quantitative-easing campaign.  The Fed’s massive deluge of inflation drastically distorted markets, which are finally starting to normalize.  The precious metals were crushed by the Fed’s artificial levitation of the stock markets, leading to extreme futures shorting.  But that looks to have peaked, a very bullish omen.

bottom of the barrel

Today’s big news came from China where weekly demand (gold withdrawals) came in at 68.4 tonnes. On a 7 day week this works out to 9.77 tonnes per day The world ex China and ex Russia (the keep all gold produced) produces 6.02 tonnes per day (2200 tonnes per year).
Hot on the heels of a huge importation of gold into India it sure looks like they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for metal.
Let’s head immediately to see what the data has in store for us today.
