Trading Week Ended January 12, 2018 

In trading and investing, Gold and Silver markets attacks of the Deep State now are a total failure. As you're aware, the whole precious metals market has long been under regular assault by the usual suspects ever since the prices actually peaked in the year 2011. This ruthless suppression of the precious metals prices became more intense in the second half of last year.

An excellent illustration of the magnitude of this action took place on the final trading day in December of 2017. When on a quiet session day the Gold OI (Open Interest) on Comex exchange increased by more than 20,000 contracts-representing greater than Two million notional ounces of Gold as metal ultimately recovered towards the $1,300 price level. Just what legitimate in his or her right mind might short that much Gold at these price levels on a serene, single trading session?

This kind of action will be taken none other by the large bullion banks as well as commercial players, inside the given directions from the Western governing bodies, orchestrated via the BIS (Bank for International Settlements), while they try to hide the hyperinflationary facets of their monetary policies.

This has gone on for a very long time in the face of persistent financial, economic debasement world-wide, in which the precious metals, Gold, Silver, as well as Platinum now are mispriced concerning just about any other asset in the world that it has turned into a dangerous prank.

You will find there's no more excellent illustration of the degree of this trading actions than the price variation in between Platinum looked at as by the contra - a Gold cartel, with Palladium. Both of these metals contain comparable commercial uses as well as fundamentals.

About ten years ago, Platinum rose rapidly to $2,200, while Palladium languished about from $500 to $600. These days the Palladium price is much higher than that of Platinum by way of a lot more than $100. Which is, by the way, no accident, therefore it merely shows the control of the Deep State in these days.

Yet, I believe the worm is lastly turning due to the fact Asian region demand and interest for Gold, is slowly and gradually overpowering the Western central banking institutions. Regardless of official figures as well as the continuous, unsupported claims of Western banks which claim that inflation is not high enough, inflation is currently rearing its ugly head just about everywhere you look.

Just take a look at, housing market prices, foodstuff, healthcare, and particularly financial assets, in fact, it is generously apparent that their freewheeling policies within the wake of the 2007/8 financial ordeal currently have set up the whole world for a more severe catastrophe this time around.

Therefore, I sincerely feel that traders and investors could be early and should wait for an inevitable, however, you cannot wait too long, or else you will be at a loss for the swift changes in marketplaces.
