Will Gold Prices Soar After March 2019?

By Arkadiusz Sieroń– Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

After the Salzburg summit, the prospects of the Brexit deal are gloomy as never before. Will gold gain on failed talks between the EU and the UK?

Cake Philosophy And Gold

The Salzburg summit was held last week. It was an informal summit of heads of the EU member states or governments. The participants discussed immigration, internal security and Brexit. The negotiations between the UK and the EU attracted the most attention, as Donald Tusk, the European Council president, said that the Chequers plan for Brexit “will not work” and mocked Theresa May’s negotiating strategy in social media (he posted a picture of May and himself at a cake stand with the caption: “A piece of cake, perhaps? Sorry, no cherries.” Continue reading

Beginning Of The End Of The Dollar

By Rick Mills – Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

Donald Trump will go down in history for many things, including a justice department investigation into US-Russian collusion in the 2016 election, a guilty verdict for his former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, and a guilty plea by his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in relation to hush-money payments to women in violation of campaign finance laws. Then there was the Access Hollywood tape, the ban on Muslims, the implicit condoning of neo-Nazis, the plans to build a border wall to keep out illegal Mexicans, the separation of immigrant children from their parents (though some say that law was drafted under Obama), and Trump’s ban on global abortion funding to please the pro-life portion of his base.

By Mark O’Byrne – Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

– The U.S. government is “missing” $21 trillion between the Department of Defence (DOD) and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

– Investment advisor and former Assistant Secretary of Housing, Catherine Austin Fitts, predicts the global financial system “will take some big hits before the end of the year” (see video below)

– They can publish financial statements that are”complete fiction with no accountability to you and call it national security”

– Gold is one of the “primary real assets” and a “core holding” … “I love gold … I am also a silver fan”

– “I am getting reports that silver is getting hard to find …  go and try to buy a bunch of silver. It’s tough…”

– “But make sure wherever you hold your gold” that the “custodian relationships” and where you have gold and silver stored are “absolutely safe”

– Own “real assets” and “have as little leverage and debt as possible…”

Highlights

  • Tensions between India and China have relaxed considerably since their armies faced off on the Doklam Plateau in the summer of 2017.
  • This change is a result of setbacks to Indian foreign policy and a more difficult global strategic environment for China.
  • Despite a return to limited cooperation, India will continue to see China as its biggest geopolitical rival, though it will compartmentalize its adversarial relationship.
  • India will continue to build up its military and establish new bilateral security ties to counter China, but it will also refrain from joining any anti-China military bloc, will soften its strident opposition to the Belt and Road Initiative and increase participation in Chinese-dominated multilateral initiatives.
