Skulderna i världen har aldrig varit så höga som de är idag samtidigt som man trycker pengar för att hålla systemet igång. Guld och silver har varit en del av det monetära systemet under flera tusen år. De senaste dryga 40 åren har man dock valt att lämna dessa ädelmetaller utanför och det har medfört ökade skulder och ett ohållbart system.

According to China Daily, the "recent overweighting to stem A-share plunge has made China Securities Finance Corp (CSF), central bank-backed refinancing institution, among top 10 shareholders of many listed-firms, reported Securities Times on Wednesday."

As you can see from this graph the open interest in silver is historically correlated with the directional price movement of silver. This correlation blew up and the amount of paper silver open interest on the Comex began to go parabolic last summer, while the price continued to head south. This is direct evidence that that Comex paper silver is being used to push down the price of silver.

Grekland håller på och förlorar sin suveränitet och det kommer inte

Publicerad 2015-07-14 11:51:00 i Ekonomi,

Here is Reuters with this little known fact:

One of the preconditions imposed on Greece for a deal is that it signs into law European rules that would put euro zone authorities at the ECB and in Brussels, rather than Athens, in charge of identifying and closing or breaking up sick banks.

This in turn could lead to a shake-up of the sector that could see some banks close, with losses pushed onto bondholders and possibly even large depositors. In such circumstances, there would be little that Athens could do to prevent this.

One European official had told Reuters that the number of big banks in the country could be reduced from four - National Bank, Piraeus, Eurobank and Alpha - to as little as two.

Unfortunatley, the moment the Greek government votes through the "deal" required bySummit document SN 4070/15, the Greek government will not only hand over sovereignty to €50 billion of Greece's choicest assets to some escrowed fund controlled by Belgium and designed to liquidate Greek assets to repay the Troika, it will also give up all control of the nation's €120 billion or so in leftover personal and corporate deposits, also known as unsecured liabilities.

And since the banks are undercapitalized by at least €25 billion, and realistically over €60 billion, if one takes into account NPLs which at 50% are a very optimistic estimate for a country in depression for 6 consecutive years, the first decision the ECB will do once it realizes the sorry state of financial affairs in Greece is to do precisely what the government could have done but did not have the guts when it still had control: overnight it will out about 50% of Greek depositors.

In other words, Greece is about to hand over the keys to the only thing that is forcing it to hand over the keys.

Unfortunately for Greece, there will be absolutely nothing its government can do to avoid this because on Wednesday, the Greek government will vote to hand over its sovereignty to Europe for, sadly, absolutely nothing in return.

The Chinese people, it is well known, already have a cultural affinity to gold. That attachment just received a shot of adrenaline. Prior to June, trading volumes on the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) were already running 20% higher than the previous year.  Now, with crash psychology affecting thinking up and down the spectrum of investors, SGE is reporting volumes off the charts. In early July, Want China Times reported that "SGE posted a record trading volume of 48.33 million grams in a single day in late June." (48.3 metric tonnes, a big number.)

Håller Grekland på och förbereder för en ny valuta

Publicerad 2015-07-09 11:55:00 i Ekonomi,

Håller Grekland på och förbereder för en ny valuta som skall ersätta Euron när Tyskalnd säger nej till nedskrivning av Greklands skulder. Bankerna kommer inte att öppna föräns det finns pengar i systemet och att möjligen några banker har fått göra en Bail-In för att säkerställa att man har pengar och betala tillbaka ECB med. Hur som helst så kommer en stor del av den grekiska befolkning förlora stora delar av sina pengar. 
Ett land med så stora skulder som Grekland (gäller inte bara Grekland utan en stor del av västvärldens länder) har bara två allternativ för att komma på fötter igen. 
1) Alla skulder skrivs av och man börjar om från början. Inte troligt då Tyskland med flera länder motsäger sig          starkt skuldnedskrivning för Grekland. 
2) Man går ur EMU och inför en ny valuta som kommer att handlas betydligt under Euro värdet. Inflationen          kommer att bli mycket hög och man inflaterar bort skulderna. Problemet är att skulderna är i Euro så man  kommer inte att betala tillbaka sina skulder utan EMU länderna får skriva ned fordringarna och skattebetalarna får  än en gång stå för notan.

The following chart shows the global gold price. This chart expresses the gold price not in US dollars, but in the trade-weighted external exchange value of the dollar. It appears as though the correction has ended and the gold price has entered a new uptrend in the autumn of 2014.

The prevailing divergence between perception and actual price performance can also be discerned in the table below. Last year, gold exhibited a negative performance solely in dollar terms. With a decline of 1.5% the loss was however quite moderate in the face of a historic dollar rally. One can also see that in euro terms a gain of 12.10% and in yen terms a gain of 12.30% was achieved. On average, the performance in the currencies under consideration here amounted to a solid 6.16%. Since the beginning of the year 2015, gold has done very well, too.

Throughout history, Central Banks have tried to inflate away debts for as long as possible. They do this right up until:

 1) The debt loads are impossible to manage, or…

2) It becomes politically unsavory to print more money… or

3) The System implodes.

Guld och silver går bra i deflations tider

Publicerad 2015-07-06 15:55:16 i Ekonomi,

Suppose, however, that inflation expectations will weaken … would that be bad for precious metals? The answer to that question is to be found in the last chart. During deflationary periods, like the ones that started in 1814, in 1864, the Great Depression of the 30ies and the financial crisis of 2008, gold did remarkably well. It is during those periods of “financial stress” that gold shows its real value, i.e. preserve wealth and provide protection against other assets.


Guld/silver relationen brukar följa börsen men inte denna gång vilket tyder på att börsen skall ned eller silverpriset upp eller en kombination.

Publicerad 2015-07-06 15:52:54 i Ekonomi,

A correction in the stock market is certainly in the cards. Why? Because traditionally the gold/silver ratio is generally negatively correlated with the S&P 500. In other words, as the gold/silver ratio goes up, which happens typically in a disinflationary environment, stocks tend to fall. Over the last 25 years, that correlation has held very well, but is diverging for 3 years ago.

Håller man på och förbereder en Bail-In i Grekland för att klara bank systemet

A Greek bail-in could resemble the rescue plan agreed by Cyprus in 2013, when customers’ funds were seized to shore up the banks, with a haircut imposed on uninsured deposits over €100,000.

It would be implemented as part of a recapitalisation of Greek banks that would be agreed with the country’s creditors — the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank.

Brexit, Grexit och nu kanske även Austexit.

First it was all about a potential Brexit from the EU, while recently attention has turned to the possibility of a Grexit. But now there is talk of another rebellion with Austria to debate the possibility of having an EU In/Out referendum, after an anti-Europe petition gained widespread public support.

The question of a European Union membership referendum must now be discussed in the Austrian parliament after a petition calling on Vienna to leave the bloc surpassed 100,000 signatures – the required amount to facilitate parliamentary discussion.
