The Cat is Out of the Bag, Gold to Soar, Dollar to Crash

There is no functional hedge against the downgrade of US Treasuries that is sure to come with or without a default except gold.

The cat is out of the bag. The political opposition can back the present administration into a corner on the most important issue, debt.

If that is the case with debt, then what else could they do it with?

To assume there will be a default is extreme, however within a week we will know. There are those in the political opposition that might go to any length to cripple the present administration.

The only conclusion that I can come to is that you should NOT take your gold hedges off. At $1764 a runaway gold bull market becomes an exponential run away gold bull market.

After $1754 Alf and Armstrong become the predictors of note for Gold at $3000 to $12,500.

The Die is Cast

My Dear Friends,

Have you thought about all the dramatics now taking center stage in the media? What compromise will be adopted that will allow for the US to avoid default by raising the debt ceiling?

Raising the debt ceiling is the problem and not by at means a solution. The race between dropping revenues and increasing costs will not be settled by politicians that do not even understand the problem.

The resignations of key economic personalities in the present Administration is systematic of the solid nature of the downward spiral that has gripped Western finances since the failure of OTC derivatives turned a normal recession into a long term depression.

There is no event that will turn the tide of the ramifications for poor economic management. Nothing can stop Gold, Silver, the Swiss and the Cando now.

The present drama of tax increases and spending cuts, like the release of oil, means nothing whatsoever even in the medium term.

The damage is done as the damage is cumulative. Day to day events are irrelevant. Day to day market activity is interesting but meaningless.

The die is cast. All we can hope is that gold is not headed to $12,500.
