Gold Scramble Driving Interest Rate Spike as Treasury-values Fall Steeply, Reflecting Asia Abandonment of US Dollar
Looks like the continuing Asian abandonment of the US dollar marches onward….
Chart shows big spike down in value of US Treasuries (10 yr shown); bond values move inversely to i-rates….i.e. if i-rates are declining, bond values are going up, and…
If bond values (shown here) are going down, i-rates are spiking upward to protect the value of the dollar.
There’s a mad scramble right now among global governments to have and hold their own gold.
REASON: NOBODY TRUSTS THE DOLLAR WHEN IT DOESN’T PAY JACK-SHIT IN INTEREST.
What happens if more (i.e. the Swiss as latest) pile on? the Fed will be forced to raise interest rates.
THIS WILL UTTERLY DEVASTATE GLOBAL BOND MARKETS, WHO HAVE BEEN ISSUING ALL THIS LOW-INTEREST PAPER FOR 4 YEARS NOW!
Get out of all your bond funds, ASAP! especially if they’re shitty junk bond funds, even if you have an income situation, because you will suffer amazing losses of principal!
MORGAN STANLEY ANALYST: Every Investor I Met At Davos Was Worried About The Same Fed Scenario
Morgan Stanley bank analyst Huw Van Steenis attended the World Economic Forum in Davos last week, and there was one concern he said kept coming up over and over in meetings with investors.
The dreaded “1994 scenario.”

People around here know that I have a gloomy outlook on future economic conditions, but I don’t do a lot of prognostication because there are so many measures they can do to intervene if the timing of a collapse isn’t on their schedule, but that said… Keep a close eye on the proposed circulation date for China’s gold backed currency! You won’t have a lot of time after that…
