Jim Rickards is watching those dates very closely. He says the markets are sleepwalking just as a shooting war with North Korea could be much closer than anybody realizes…
Jim Rickards interviewed by Greg Hunter
Is there a danger in October as many believe there could be? Four time best-selling author James Rickards says “yes,” and it comes from increased tensions with North Korea. Rickards says, “We have a window from October 10th to October 21st. What is the significance of that window? October 10th is the anniversary of the communist party of North Korea. Kim Jong Un is getting ready to test more missiles. . . .
We have two catalysts. The anniversary on October 10th and war games (with South Korea) on October 21st. In that window is when I expect one or more missile tests. That’s going to be another wake up call to the markets. The markets are sleepwalking . . . they don’t understand this war is coming, and it is coming. A shooting war, a pre-emptive war, a kinetic war with the United States against North Korea, I do expect by mid-2018. . . .
Kim Jong Un thinks we are bluffing. We are not.”
