The Most Gigantic Wealth Destruction
King World News with Egon von Greyerz

November 27 2015

In a King World News article of November 27, Egon covers the following topics:

Stock markets worldwide are now in the final stages of a secular bull market. Bulls of this magnitude are not killed off easily, especially when they are being fed with paper. Thus we could see the current strong trend in markets continue for yet a few weeks. But once the bear trend starts in earnest stocks could fall 75-95% in real terms over the next few years.

At the same time gold will resume its long term uptrend in 2016. Thus in order to preserve wealth for coming years, investors should exit the stock market and hold gold and some silver. Gold could easily gain 1,000% in the next few years as stock crash.

Desperate central banks will try to save the world by printing unlimited amounts of paper but they will fail.

Paper Gold Doesn’t Glitter

PAPER GOLD DOESN’T GLITTER

by Egon von Greyerz

Today when gold in US dollars is making a new correction low, the paper shorts are elated. They believe they can win this game of frightening every gold investor to sell their holding. But this elation is likely to soon turn to desperation.

Supply tight in gold and silver

As I have discussed many times, the physical market in gold and silver is very tight. Bullion banks have low stock levels and central banks have leased or sold a major part of their gold. But since they refuse to be properly audited they are desperately trying to hide the real position. China and India are continuing to buy more than the annual production of gold by the miners. And the supply situation from the refiners is tight with delivery delays for bigger orders.

Collapsing Global Trade is an Ominous Sign

The World Is Now On The Edge Of Total Collapse
King World News with Egon von Greyerz

November 09 2015

As Ludwig von Mises said: “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

An illusion of prosperity

Between “American Idol” and Fox News, no one will ever understand what is really happening. But sadly that is all most people in the West are exposed to. Neither ordinary people nor the better-off understand that the world is living on borrowed time. For a hundred years the world economy has lived on a lie and a corrupt financial system based on few real values but instead on printed money and a fractional-reserve banking system. The synthesis of these two elements has created a perceived prosperity unprecedented in history. Little do people understand that the false wealth and high standard of living have not been produced with honest work or investment but with printed money and credit that have created the illusion of prosperity…

A Bull – Fed On Paper Money

by Egon von Greyerz

 

It seems that a bull fed on paper money has eternal life. Whatever the news is, stock markets worldwide react positively. It takes a long time to kill off a secular bull even if it has the wrong diet.

When will the Bank Bubble Burst

When will the Bank Bubble Burst

When will the Bank Bubble Burst

by Egon von Greyerz

We just had another confirmation that banks are dealing in sums which they don’t understand themselves. A junior employee in Deutsche Bank (DB) paid $6 billion to a hedge fund which was the gross value of a position. He should have paid the net. That in a nutshell shows the uncontrollable exposure of the banking system which will lead to its downfall.

How can a junior employee in a major bank pay the incredible sum of $6B without any controls whatsoever? This is a world gone mad. Governments print trillions, banks issue derivatives in the quadrillions and banks transact in hundreds of billions every week. The zeros no longer mean anything and have no value. This is all routine stuff for the people dealing in these sums and no one has a clue about the risk or the real exposure.
