The Financial System Is Sick, Are Precious Metals the Cure?

The financial system is sick because too much money is being printed by the federal government which only masks the debt crisis problem instead of actually solving it. The solution to a problem like this is incorporating gold and silver into the monetary system.

The Virus Which Plagues Our Financial System

Looking at the general equity markets overall, we can clearly see that the fear of sovereign debt downgrade and economic slowdown which started last summer, ended during the fall. After four months of uncertainty on whether the bankers and government would allow another downward spiral in the economy and stock markets like we had in 2008, we now have our answer. The system will not be allowed to naturally correct and adjust as free markets would have them do. Banks which own toxic assets are no longer keeping financial records under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) or applying mark to market valuation for the assets they hold on their books. However we really can’t blame the banks for the entire problem we see in the financial world, they have been given bandages to conceal the wounds from the public’s eye.

Today’s western financial world operates much like our government sponsored medical system. Mask the problem and give the bankers the pharmaceutical drugs (bail out money) to help them dull the pain and keep them on life support. Letting the free markets work in curing the ailment is not an option because then there would be little need for doctors (governments) or the manufacturers of these drugs (central banks). The banks are sick and should be allowed to pass on peacefully ensuring the virus known as debt does not affect the rest of the population. Unfortunately, the governments and central bankers have only one prescription drug of choice to keep them alive. Printing money seems to be the cure to all sovereign debt problems around the world.

How much money was doled out to sick banks during the last few years is anyone’s guess since the drug dealing central bankers do not share information about the patents they hold (monopoly on money) or their sales figures (bailout money). There is absolutely no transparency on the amount of placebos they prescribe to every patient in the financial system or who is taking these pills to stay on life support. Lord James of Blackheath seems to think that the FED injected these dying banks with $15 Trillion dollars of live saving drugs, but where did the placebos come from? He does a good job trying to explain it (Bush, Fed, Europe Banks in $15 Trillion Fraud, All Documented) but no one is listening. This doesn’t surprise me: as long as the patient is still alive, who cares?

The Natural Cure To Kill This Virus

The western financial system based on pure fiat currency is the virus that will be the death of the financial world as we know it. Taking more and more of the same drug makes your immune system resilient to that drug, so each additional does becomes less effective. Printing more and more money does not cure the financial system, but it in fact weakens our immune system to the point where the drug becomes a toxic mix of chemicals that will lead us to our death bed. An ancient healing system known as Ayurveda “the knowledge for long life” has been used for thousands of years in India. It’s an ancient healing system which aims to naturally treat and heal the body, mind and spirit much like Yoga which also brings balance into your life. The financial world is out of balance and no dose of printing will cure its problems, it will only mask the virus brought on by the bankers which is now spreading throughout the world.

So how do we kill the virus know as paper money and debts? It’s very simple, you can starve the virus by taking away the food which allows it to grow in the first place, which means taking the printing press away from central banker, something they won’t give up easily. Or you can introduce a virus killer into the system to cleanse it and eliminate 99% of the ailments caused by this virus we know as debt and paper money. This virus nurtured by central bankers could easily be killed with the use of gold and silver as money in our monetary system and thus eliminating the need for a central bank. Ayurveda has been used for thousands of year to naturally heal and maintain a good balance between mind, body and spirit. For most of history, silver and gold has been used as money and has all the properties we need for a sound financial system. Silver was used as a common currency for everyday transactions by the average person, where gold was mostly for a store of value for the wealthy. Outside of money, silver also has many industrial uses including film, solar and electronics. One of the few uses that is rarely discussed is medical uses for silver, including its ability to kill 99% of the know viruses thus helping eliminate the need for unnecessary medicinal drugs manufactured by big Pharma. Spend a few hours googling silver’s medicinal properties and you will see what I mean.

So what does this mean for me and my financial health?

Don’t rely on big Pharma, your government or central banks to protect your health and wealth. The system is not designed to protect you. In fact it is now stealing you wealth through inflation by endless printing of money. The real wealth is being transferring to people who take the necessary steps to protect themselves by owning the very thing that the bankers covet the most, gold and silver. History has show us over and over again that owning gold and silver is the best way of protecting yourself when currencies become devalued or inflated away to nothing. You must take responsibility for you own actions in life, which means taking the necessary precautions to protect your wealth and health in order to bring balance back to your life, something Indians have know for thousands of years.

Gold Trading Range

In last week’s review, we mentioned that gold was trading in a sideways channel between $1720 and $1750 which is a good development for gold. The longer this consolidation and trading range held in terms of time, the less likelihood a downside correction would occur. As more people start accepting a $1700 + gold price, it will eventually lead to higher stock prices in the gold mining shares.

Gold traded towards the top of the trading at $1750 early in the week and from Tuesday onwards the price has never looked back. Closing the week at $1775, gold was able to gain over $60 and most likely the $1750 price will now act as support for the coming weeks.

Technical Analysis

The RSI has been holding above 60 this past week with the gold price rising. We haven’t seen any spike higher above 70 and toward 80, which is still positive. An extreme reading above 80 is something we will look for in the future at which point a significant correction could occur.

The MACD had been rising since the beginning of the year but is now flattened out while the price of gold is still rising. It has yet to turn negative, so the trend for the price of gold is still up in a slow grind higher.

This week’s trading range:
Support: $1750, $1725 and the 50 DMA at $1671.50 (Strong buy)
Resistance: $1800 initially, then $1850 and $1900 (exit trading position at $1900)
