imagesThe credit bubble has been identified, recognized and “pricked”, the equity markets are only a symptom. Do not be fooled by any strength this coming week, it should be used to raise cash.
As September moves in, the September-October timeframe looks like a disaster.
What may start out as circuit breakers being hit now, will ultimately be the plugs yanked out over the next couple of months. I believe a market closure is in our near term future.

Gold and silver will be your ONLY lifeboats…

vaultI was told years ago by a “famous” trader I was nuts regarding backwardation.  He told me it didn’t exist on COMEX and LBMA didn’t matter.  What possible explanation can be given for the current situation on COMEX (which supposedly “does matter”) where backwardation clearly exists from the August contract all the way out to December?
SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG…

end“It’s like if in a casino and everyone starts winning, mysteriously either the lights go out of someone pulls a fire alarm …no more gambling!  I think the PPT knew they were going to be overwhelmed, if this were the case and I was the chairman of the NYSE, I would run upstairs and pull the plug out of the wall.  …Problem solved …for now!

holterMy fear is we are not in 2008 anymore, the coming collapse will change the world order to one unrecognizable to today. 
The U.S. is in fact “broke” as we spoke of at the beginning.  The “realization” of this not only can happen but WILL happen.  Sadly, because of how badly the U.S. has treated the world over these last years, we will be given no mercy when negotiating our bankruptcy. 
It will be a real live wolf at our door!

Bernanke-Dimon-Fed-TunnelI assume JP Morgan and the Fed are one and the same.  There have been stories JPM has amassed 350 or more ounces of silver.  We also know China/Russia/India have been huge buyers of gold.  We now know JPM has increased their derivatives by over $3 trillion in just one quarter.  It is obvious to me, they are the ones sitting on the paper prices of gold and silver.  This would make sense for the Fed to attack the metals and thus support the dollar.
In fact, standard procedure in any war is to strengthen your currency while weakening your opponents.  I believe the neocons know the bottom of our “gold barrel” is close at hand, they have decided to go ALL IN on price suppression.

chinaIn the past, total open interest always dropped going into FND, now it is not.  Not only are all July contracts closed out being rolled into September, the total is rising rather than declining sharply. 
I first wrote last August about the situation where huge open interest in the September contract dwarfed the available silver for delivery. 

My speculation then as it is now, I believe somehow the bulk of the open interest in the nearby month is of Chinese origin
Call it the Chinese “Kill Switch”:

collapseThe world is not going to end.
It ALREADY HAS, and you have not noticed.
They will cause a chain reaction financial dark energy that cannot be stopped by any central bank or all central banks together.

stormI cannot stress how important it is now for you to be on guard for anything at any time.
A market closure, though likely over a weekend, can occur during ANY WEEKDAY! 
Do not allow yourself to be lulled to sleep by any rallies from here or stories of how “the storm has passed”.
It is ONLY BEGINNING! 

panicEric Sprott, Bill Holter, and Greg Hunter join TruNews’ Rick Wiles for a MEGA PM Round-table interview breaking down the Greek End Game, and how the collapse is likely to play out.
Sprott explains why the US and EU cannot afford the fallout of a Greek collapse and the nation turning to Russia, and why the banking cartel must avoid a Lehman style liquidation by any means possible...
Is the biggest financial debacle in human history ALREADY UNRAVELING?
Full MUST WATCH 60 Minute MEGA Financial Roundtable With Sprott, Holter, & Hunter is below:

collapseFor CNBC or any media outlet to downplay a Greek default is plain evil deceit at its core. 
Greece owes close to 350 billion euros and when the amount of written derivatives are included we are probably talking well over 3 trillion euros!
Please remember when a “default” occurs, the “notional value” of derivatives positions becomes the true at risk amount.  This was the problem caused by Lehman Brothers in 2008, derivatives which had been supported by margin alone (and very thin at that) saw margin calls explode and the demands of 100% notional payments began
This is why no one, ever, can be allowed to fail.  Because then the triggers are pulled and notional settlements begin …with a minor problem

Derivatives simply cannot perform because they total more than the value of everything else added together on the planet. 

imagesThere is no such thing as a derivative that does not have an implied or defined interest rate characteristics. This is the chain that connects them all.  That makes this problem larger than one quadrillion dollars…
Here is the concept you must understand: 

Notional value of a derivative becomes real value of the derivative in the event of derivative bankruptcy.
This unwelcome change in the interest rates market, the bond market, is truly the GOD OF DEAT for the world’s financial system.
When the smoke clears, gold will be the only true measure of value (a definition of money) with gold’s only mechanism for price discovery being the now growing and transparent physical market, the paper market will be in tatters as will be the paper exchanges and paper public companies that own these exchanges.”

hyperinflationWhat I believe we will see is what we have always seen as a final result of fiat currencies, a collapse of confidence. Call it what you want, a deflationary collapse, or hyperinflation, the end result will be “confidence” in the U.S. dollar will collapse.
A break in the confidence of fiat currency will end with many currencies being replaced, this is a major part of your coming “re-set”.
Ask yourself this, in a financial collapse, “what will be safe”?  Will your bank, broker or insurance company be safe, or even still solvent? Will our over indebted government be safe?
Will the pieces of paper or digital credits issued by this “safe” government and held by your “safe” institution …really be safe?

Sinclair Hong KongFrom Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Recent Bloomberg analysis says if China backed its currency with gold, the price would need to be 50 times higher than it is today.
According to Bloomberg, that would be a gold price of around $64,000 per ounce, which is much more than gold expert Jim Sinclair predicted a few years ago.  Financial writer Bill Holter weighs in, “That was a few years ago, before some of the QE, and Jim has said that $50,000 gold may turn out to be laughably low. . . .”
