KING SOLOMON AND 666 GOLD

What is history’s greatest illusion? Is it the Indian Rope Trick or is it performed by Houdini or maybe David Copperfield. No, this is an illusion which is so big that the whole world has fallen for it. Virtually every individual in the Western world and also many in the East believe in this illusion.

SILVER – GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

There is one spectacular investment opportunity today that virtually no one talks about. It represents less than 0.1% of global financial assets. This investment has a potential upside of 36x or 3,500%. The downside is extremely limited since supply is finite and demand strong. It is selling at around production cost and has a real intrinsic value. It has also been money for thousands of years.

THE DECAY AND DECLINE OF THE WHOLE CAPITALIST SYSTEM

The world is now standing before a seminal moment and virtually nobody can see it. There has not been a more critical moment in the last 50 years than what we are now facing. In 1971, the world faced a similar situation. At that time, only the Chinese understood the consequences of Nixon’s decision to close the gold window.

MAD WORLD – CURRENCIES TO ZERO, BONDS MINUS ZERO

How far down the rabbit hole will the world go? It seems that just like in Alice in Wonderland, things are getting more strange by the day. If it continues at this speed, the rabbit hole will soon become a black hole without a bottom. Bonds cost money to hold, currencies are soon worth nothing and gold will reach at least $7,000 before it reaches $700.

THE GOLD BULL IS ALIVE AND KICKING

Maecenas was a well known benefactor in Rome for Horace and others. His name has come to mean benefactor, in many languages called a mecenate.

The loss of a benefactor can be very serious for anyone on the receiving end of his alimonies. For a century, the world has had the most generous group of benefactors ever. These benefactors have created immense wealth in the world. Even better, they did it without any major effort. All that was required was a printing machine combined with some book keeping wizardry.
The problem is now that these wizards will very soon be revealed as the biggest swindlers in history. With money printing and debt expansion they have created a $2 quadrillion Ponzi scheme of debt, derivatives and unfunded liabilities.

GOVERNMENT ACTION WILL PUSH GOLD EVER HIGHER

History is full of mad leaders from the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, the Roman Emperor Caligula to many English and French kings as well as modern examples. But the question is if we have ever had such a mad world as today. Globally, ethical and moral values have vanished and decadence is rampant. And financially there is zero discipline as leaders are attempting to set aside the laws of nature. This is for example totally obvious in the manipulation of the world economy which is done on a greater scale than has ever been done in history.

NEXT 5 YEARS NOT ABOUT WINNING BUT SURVIVING

The messages from the ECB and the Fed couldn’t be clearer. They are seeing major problems in the financial system and in the world economy and they will do whatever it takes to save the system. But they will fail.

The autumn of 2019 will see a major shift in sentiment as markets turn from a secular bull to a secular bear. We are likely to see major crashes in many global stock markets. Virtually no one is prepared for this so there will be both panic and despair.

STOCKS NO BID – GOLD NO OFFER

It is not difficult to understand Cassandra’s enormous frustration. She was given the gift of accurately predicting important events and her curse was that no one would believe her. Some of us are certain that we can now see the biggest bubbles in economic history coming to an end with totally devastating effects for the world. But like Cassandra, we are also cursed since more than 99.9% of the world’s population would not believe our predictions.

CONFIDENCE AND EUPHORIA WILL TURN TO FEAR AND DESPAIR

Investors today have Hobson’s Choice. But they still don’t understand the options open to them. Thomas Hobson had a livery stable of 40 horses in Cambridge in the 16th-17th centuries. But customers only had a choice of one horse. They could either take the one nearest the door or none at all. So Hobson’s choice in simple terms means “take it or leave it”.

Egon von Greyerz interviewed by Lynette Zang

“A Crazy World! We have the biggest bubble ever in history and it will all end in tears.” This is how Egon starts the interview with Lynette. Egon goes on to discuss that we we will soon begin a most spectacular secular bear market in stocks and bonds. Central banks will panic as they fail with their rescue attempt of the financial system. They can never save a world infested with debt of $250 trillion.
In addition, the real derivatives amount outstanding is at least $1.5 quadrillion and when counterparty fails, the derivative bubble will implode.

GOLD IS FOR FREEDOM AND BENEFIT

Lemmings have a herd mentality. But following the crowd, can have grave consequences like falling off a cliff and drowning in the ocean. Many investors have the same instinct. They follow the crowd and buy or sell when other people do. This probably won’t end in the same disaster as the lemmings, but following the crowd virtually never leads to a successful long term investment performance.

SWISS BANK LOSES CLIENT’S GOLD

Don’t let your bank hold your gold. They might not find it. A gold investor told us recently that his Swiss bank had moved the client’s gold from the bank’s safe to a private vault in the name of the bank, in Zurich. The client was aware of this move. But then the problems started. The gold was allocated and the client had the bar numbers. The client wanted to store the gold through our company and instructed the bank. But the gold wasn’t there any more. The gold was supposed to be segregated but the bank had stored it in the collective vault. And the client’s allocated, numbered bars were not to be found anywhere.

GOLD PRICE SIGNALS NEXT GLOBAL CRISIS

Finally it happened although it took 6 long years to break through The Gold Maginot Line at $1,350!

This resistance was a lot stronger than the original French one in WW II since it took the Germans less than a year to penetrate it in 1940.

I JUST WON A $1 MILLION DOLLAR WAGER ON GOLD!

At the beginning of last week, I was challenged with a wager on the gold price. The individual, who called me a “gold pumper”, wanted to bet $1 million on the gold price going below $1,000 before it reached the Maginot Line at $1,350.

Since the gold price was $1,325 when I received the challenge, the odds looked pretty good to me. Gold only needed to go up $25 for me to win $1 million but down $325 for the challenger to cash in. Thus, a no-brainer really, especially since I was totally convinced that gold would break the Maginot Line soon.

GOLD MAGINOT LINE BROKEN – TIME TO BUY INSURANCE

The breakout in gold and silver that we have been patiently waiting for is now starting.
The long term up move in the precious metals, which have been pausing since 2011, is now resuming. We can with confidence expect all the short term resistance levels to be broken. The first obstacle was the Gold Maginot Line at $1,350. As I have said for quite some while, this 6 year resistance was always guaranteed to break. It has already been broken in most currencies, so gold in dollars was never going to hold out for much longer. And today it happened in Asia and Europe with gold reaching $1,358.

BRITS – GOLD MORE LIKELY TO SAVE YOU THAN ATLAS

Will Atlas save the world? Global debt of $250 trillion can neither be serviced nor ever repaid. More likely, it will continue to grow exponentially until the world financial system collapses under the weight of the debt plus unfunded pension and medical liabilities of at least $250 trillion plus derivatives of $1.5 quadrillion, making a total of over $2 quadrillion.

WITHOUT GOLD THE WEALTHY WILL BE WIPED OUT

The massive explosion of wealth in the world could be a sign of general prosperity but that is certainly very far from the truth. The printed money and credit expansion has only benefited a very small minority. The gap between the rich and the poor is getting ever wider but it will soon shrink dramatically.
