Expect a vicious repeat of the “stagflation” of the 1970s, but with prices rising FAR more rapidly than incomes, except for the top 1%.
Expect silver, gold, mining stocks and the silver to gold ratio to rise rapidly in 2017 and 2018:

Early Stages of a Short Squeeze?
With Options Expiry Over, the Naked Shorts Have Released Gold and Silver to ROAR HIGHER:

Since mid-December 2016, when gold appears to have bottomed out from the manipulated price “correction” that began in August, gold has been trading in defiance of the Fed’s attempts at price control.
Yesterday’s trading action is case in point:

Current stock market valuations are not sustainable – A Great Crash Is Coming. 
It may not happen next week or next month, but it is going to happen. 
And when it does happen, it is likely to make what happened in 2008 look like a Sunday picnic…

There’s always the chance that court-ordered discovery – assuming these banks have not destroyed and wiped clean any evidence – could reveal the truth.
And the truth will set the gold/silver price free.

BRACE FOR IMPACT – As the DOW Sets Record High After Record High, Market Expert David Morgan Warns A Market Crash Is Coming…

Returning to a gold standard would strip these criminals of everything.
It would most likely collapse the Wall Street gangs and strip the deep state in Washington DC of their so-called power.
Returning to a gold standard, as Greenspan is seemingly alluding to, would transform our economy and return the power to the people as President Trump has been discussing the past several months.
Below, you can hear for yourself Alan Greenspan discussing gold and silver as currency, and how he REALLY feels about gold and silver being returned to the monetary system:

Silver in particular has a crucial week of trading ahead due in large part to the head and shoulders pattern the bullion banks have painted onto the weekly chart by capping silver prices over the past 10 days, combined with March expiration.
If they are successful, momentum traders and algos will pile onto the paper short side, targeting sub $14/oz silver.
If they are not and silver is able to break away towards $18.50, the very real potential for a short squeeze exists…

The Warning Signs Are There. 
Collateral damage to wealth during times of currency devaluations, tariffs, and trade wars is inevitable, but those who remain ignorant of the underlying causes are doomed to bear the full burden of the fallout.

An incredible amount of fraudulent, virtual silver is being created in order to cap price and paint the chart.
Will JPM and the rest of The Evil Empire be successful once again in capping price and routing the Specs?
The reaction to today’s FOMC minutes may help to determine the outcome:

The coming War on Cash is also designed to bring in black-market cash from the bottom 40% who use cash businesses as a tax avoidance tactic.
As for precious metals–imagine a “wealth tax” that is first imposed on millionaires.
Who will say that “taxing the rich” is a bad idea?
Then the definition of “rich” will be adjusted downward.  Anyone owning gold is “rich,” correct?
