Gold Price Signals Next Global Crisis

GOLD PRICE SIGNALS NEXT GLOBAL CRISIS June 27, 2019 by Egon von Greyerz 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. But we must remember that the rising gold price is a warning signal for the coming economic crisis. In my article on February 14th I said. “No one must believe that the line will hold. It is extremely likely to be penetrated conclusively in 2019 and most probably within maximum the next three months.” It took four months for the break to happen so I was one month out. Still it had to happen. I also said in the article that: “once it is broken, the correction of gold is finally over and we are on our way to new highs and much beyond.” So that’s where we are today. The break has now finally taken place and I doubt that we will see $1,350 decisively broken on the downside in my lifetime. The 6 year resistance line has now become an extremely strong support line. Yes, gold will go quickly to $1,650+ on its way to new highs and far above that. As I have said many times, we will see levels that no one can imagine today. GOLD RALLY HAS BARELY STARTED The precious metals rally hasn’t really started yet. Gold … Continue reading

Hyper-inflationary Gold at $175 Billion Dollars

HYPERINFLATIONARY GOLD AT $175 BILLION DOLLARS August 2, 2018 by Egon von Greyerz The Sword of Damocles is hanging over the world economy, held only by a single hair of a horse’s tail. With such visible danger, the problem could have been fixed easily by either using a gold chain or even removing the sword altogether. But the elite, and central bankers have had other plans. Instead of replacing the hair with a solid metal chain, the sword is today hanging by a very fragile thread that can break at any time. The global financial system was on the verge of collapse a decade ago. Central banks around the world, led by the Fed injected around $25 trillion in loans and guarantees. Banks like Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Bank of America got trillions. (see table below). Today, more than ten years since the Great Financial Crisis started, the debt problem has become uncontrollable. Global debt has doubled since 2006 and together with derivatives and unfunded liabilities risk has grown exponentially. So $100s of trillions increase in debt and liabilities has not bought the world enduring stability but instead weakened the foundations on which the world economy rests to an extent that the next rescue attempt will totally fail. NEW WORLD ORDER GOVERNMENT It is therefore inevitable that the Sword of Damocles will soon drop and cause irreparable damage to the world. We can speculate if central bankers are totally unaware of the risks or if they have a hidden … Continue reading
