There have been almost no contracts served on the Crimex for several months. When you think of this in Holmesian terms using convergent logic this makes no sense. Here we have a “market” with 400,000 contracts open interest and nobody uses it for actual physical transactions, not even a little. Contrast this with Shanghai, which is all about deliveries and withdrawals, a true bazaar. Meanwhile, quite understandably, Singapore and China are racing to create their own “Asian fix” price beginning March 12.
Apparently the cognoscenti think that looting is only going to apply to other people, like Greeks and Austrians. But the mechanism for this is fully in place.
Now we learn the Greek government is contemplating using pension deposits to fund the IMF loan due next week. This is the marker of another corrupt cabal-compromised regime. Incident No. 2 is the failure of Hypo Bank in Austria. Last week the cabal’s minions gave the aptly named Hypo a AAA rating. Now, Hypo has halted payment of 8 billion euros of debt. Next comes the bail in whereby the bond holders and the depositors get hosed.
A total solar eclipse on March 20 falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar. According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment. This sky event is juxtaposed between a rare blood moon or tetrad sequence. This tetrad happens to fall on four major Jewish holidays.
The economic numbers reported this week and especially Friday had a distinct odor to them. It was not only that they revealed a very sick U.S. economy, it was that they were actually reported as such. The University of Michigan survey, as a prime example, is nothing more than a Potemkin Village, made-up, propaganda number. It was reported as a big drop only because the cabal may be starting a new narrative. The algos buy gold when these weak reports prevail.
One thing needs to be kept in mind concerning Boris Nemtsov’s murder: He was a politician past his prime. According to a recent Levada Center poll, many Russians didn’t even know he existed. Nemtsov didn’t even manage to get elected as mayor of Sochi, winning a mere 14% of the vote in the city’s 2009 mayoral elections.
Nemtsov was unpopular even among the opposition; this comes from being a Yeltsin-era politician. Many even argue that Nemtsov was a “decorative” asset for Putin as a stable, familiar, relatively honest but powerless opposition figure.
There are a number of conferences and shows going on in Canada. In the past this is where deals get done. Mark Barstow, the CEO of Randgold, suggests that he sees more mergers and acquisition opportunities appearing in the mining industry.
“Never have I seen an opportunity like I feel is appearing in the market for M&A before, in 30 years,” Barstow said.
The Guardian newspaper out of the U.K. is a stooge of the police and deep state. Nothing comes out of them without a tension or agitation agenda. So when it broke the story of a Chicago black site — an untold place where police secretly detain and interrogate citizens — it is by design. This is psyops conditioning to get the sheeple used to the fact that these black sites are all over the U.S.
After watching a little of (the ugly) Janet Yellen show yesterday, I only have one thing to say and ask: Will the people of this planet leave their fiat money in insolvent sovereign bonds where they have to pay interest to (the bad) crooks? Will they leave their cash in (the bad and ugly) banks controlled by crime syndicates that have the authority to bail them in and take their deposits? Or will they find (the good) ecstasy of gold? I really don’t think this is rocket science.
