August 2015 Interviews

Craig Hemke
August 31, 2015 - We Have the Illusion of Markets - Craig Hemke, who has Wall Street experience that dates back to 1990, says, “The whole thing is a charade akin to a movie set.  We have the illusion of markets, and that is propped up on a daily basis by the financial media who has an interest in propping it up. They parade money managers on there who have an interest in making it seem all is well because they are collecting fees. You also have the Fed pretending to be in control through their interest rate policies and trying to make it sound like the economy is doing just fine. .All of it is a hall of mirrors or a charade to try to convince everybody that it is all okay. When I got into this business 25 years ago, there was an actually functioning stock market . . . it was buyers and sellers, actually real people. Now, 75% of the volume of the listed stocks is done by high frequency trading computers. It is a fraud, a scam and a charade.”

Jim Sinclair
August 26, 2015 - Silver Will Be Gold On Steroids In the Coming Rally. -Legendary gold expert Jim Sinclair says what is going on right now in the stock market is just the warm-up act. Sinclair contends,? “This is a pre-crash, and we are not making it through September without the real thing.? Everybody is on credit. Main Street is on credit. This seems to be a bubble of historical proportion when it comes to the amount of money supporting the accepted lifestyles as being the new normal. Raising interest rates is impossible today. The market is so fragile. Nothing can come out that causes people any concern or derivatives any change, nothing whatsoever. We are going through a period of time where expecting nothing meaningful is a dream. These are times never experienced in financial history. . . .It is very possible that we are going to have a super civilization change. ” The US Plunge Protection Team is losing control of the markets, and Sinclair warns, “They got the dickens scared out of them. They actually backed off providing the funds necessary. That’s your warning. The warning is markets can overrun plunge protection teams. Markets can and will overrun the manipulation of metals and currencies."

Gerald Celente
August 24, 2015 - Global Crash Will Force More Money Printing -  Top trends researcher Gerald Celente has recently predicted a market crash between now and the end of the year. It looks like that prediction is unfolding now, and Celente contends, “It’s very simple. You have a global slowdown, and this is after central banks have pumped in trillions of dollars, yen, yuan, euros and you name it to propping it up. We are in unprecedented territory. This has never happened before in the history of the world. Even the Wall Street Journal came out last week with a front page story and said the Fed used up all its ammunition. They have nothing left to do because they have record low interest rates, but I disagree with them. I believe they will come out with another round of quantitative easing (QE or money printing)." Celente sees stocks and bonds taking a big hit, while gold prices spike. Celente explains, “By the end of the year, the equity markets will be down by more than 20%.  I am bullish on gold. I believe when gold prices go up, they are going to spike up. We believe, and we are on record, that the bottom in gold is between $1,000 per ounce to $1,150 per ounce. That was the downside risk because it doesn’t pay to pull it out of the ground at any level lower than that."

Egon von Greyerz
August 22, 2015 - Egon von Greyerz of Materhorn Investments sounds the alarm and tells us the global monetary system is in collapse now. He feels that most are still asleep to the fact and will soon wake to the reality of devalution in their currency. At this time he expects there will be a run for precious metals. The dilema is there is very little physical gold in the west and  bullion banks are extremely low on inventory. Suppression comes to an end now" says Egon. This will cause mayhem in the markets and  massive fear and cause a move into gold could take it to 2000 before 2015 is over. "We are now experiencing urrency collapses in country after country and this will happen to the US dollar." Buy your precious metals now as they could run out very fast in this type of scenario. Only investor holding gold when the currency collapses are completely protected.

Hugo Salinas Price
August 19, 2015: We’re Going to be Drowning in Worthless Paper -  Mexican business magnate Hugo Salinas Price says that there are? “many more”devaluations coming for China’s currency. Salinas Price thinks that many other countries will cut the value of their currencies because the world economy is in deep trouble. Salinas Price points out the real problem comes from countries printing money out of thin air and goes on say, “This entire fiat money circus the world has been on is coming to a head. I see many comments from diverse people, and the problems are just mounting up. You have Greece with 11 million people, and if they get this last bit of money, they will have some $400 billion of debt. How can 11 million people work off a debt of $400 billion? It just can’t be done. The other big problem is the huge amount of bond debt floating around in the world. The central banks are trying to “stop a deluge of liquidations.” Salinas Price explains, “It means that the owners of the debt get wiped out. Somebody owns all that debt. It can’t be liquidated. It’s going to go into default, and that will mean a loss for all those holders of debt. . . . People think they have jillions of dollars or euros or whatever currency, and it’s all going to come to nothing, it can’t be liquidated. The debtors cannot pay.Greece is the whole world."

Bill Holter
August 19, 2015 - Chinese Join Currency War & Gold Backwardation is Back! - 
Did China just join the currency war? What will the world look like in 6 months? Bill Holter questions what will even be left. Bill Holter writes and is partnered with Jim Sinclair at the newly formed Holter/Sinclair collaboration. Prior, he wrote for Miles Franklin from 2012-15. Bill worked as a retail stockbroker for 23 years, including 12 as a branch manager at A.G. Edwards.

Bill was a well-known contributor to the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) commentaries from 2007-present.

Takeaways from this week’s interview -
• A devalued Yuan makes it almost impossible for the Fed to raise rates and Bill will be shocked if they do!
• The Chinese just reported a stockpile of over 1,800 tons of gold, but Bill isn’t buying it. So how much do they have?
• How the dollar becoming strong, may actually kill the dollar?
• Gold is back in backwardation, indicating a rising level of global fear
• An update on Ukraine and Greece

Gregory Mannarino
August 17, 2015 - Debt Will Cause a Global Meltdown - Financial writer and trader Gregory Mannarino predicts that big debt defaults are coming. Mannarino says the current financial system is dying and it was designed to die. Mannarino explains, “It’s a debt based system, and we are at the end of it now—period. This is why this is occurring. We are seeing equities inflate while we are seeing deflationary spiral with commodities, and it may get worse. People are going to start to realize that the debt is no good, and then cash is no good. So, what are they going to do? They are going to flock to commodities at some point in time. People will realize that commodities are real things. They are not floating around in some fantasy land where debt is a real asset. Debt is backed by nothing or the debt is backed by bankrupt governments so it’s worse than nothing. All of this is going to reverse at some point. All this cash that has been hyper-inflated by the central banks is going to move into commodities.”

Andy Hoffman
August 12, 2015 - China Just Turned the Currency War Nuclear - Financial writer Andy Hoffman says, “A year from now, we are going to be 5% lower (on the yuan) not 2%. So, already the market is bidding down the yuan in what I believe must happen. For all the talk about bubbles here, the NASDAQ bubble, the debt bubble, the housing bubble, bubbles we see in Europe, the bubbles we see in Japan and, frankly, nothing even compares to China’s bubble both economically and financially because of what their communist government has wrought onto them. I think there are going to be further steps for China to devalue as their economy falls apart.” Hoffman says this is why there is the huge demand for physical precious metals and goes on to explain, “because it’s real money people are flocking into. They sense the fear between Greece, Brazil, China, Japan and now our economy that everyone is going to competitively devalue. The Fed raising rates, of course not. They are going to be doing QE4 and negative interest rates. Hoffman, who also has 15 years’ experience as a Wall Street analyst, says it’s not just China’s economy tanking. It’s global.

Bill Holter
August 10, 2015 -  The Ability to Prevent a Crash No Longer Exists - Financial writer and gold expert Bill Holter says the powers know that it physically can’t put off a financial crash much longer. Holter contends, “The system has gotten too big. The system has gotten bigger than the creators of the system, if you will. It is bigger than the sovereign governments collectively. It’s bigger than the central banks collectively. There’s too much debt. For the people who think central banks can print money to infinity, Holter advises, “People have the belief in central banks because, to this point, it has worked. So, they extrapolate that it will always work. What they are not factoring in is many sovereign governments have reached debt saturation. In other words, many governments have gotten to the point of Greece or Puerto Rico. It can’t take more debt. The problem in Europe is the individual countries can’t print money. The U.S. can print money. The question is will foreigners accept what we print forever? The answer is no.”

James Turk
August 5, 2015 - Backwardation Has Never Happened in Monetary History -Renowned gold expert James Turk says prolonged gold backwardation like we are seeing now, where the spot price is higher than the future price, has never happened before. Turk contends,“No, never, and I am a student of monetary history as well, and I have never seen it happen like this in monetary history.? Typically, when a backwardation would occur under the classic gold standard, for example, the banks that would have fractional reserve banking would go under. There would be a banking collapse. So, typically, if there was a backwardation, it would only last for a few days as it did in 1999 and in 2008. So, we have an unusual situation where we have heavy government involvement where they are trying to keep the gold price under wraps so they can maintain this policy of zero interest rates. They are thinking they are going to jumpstart the economy, but the economy is not being jumpstarted. All it’s doing is deferring the ultimate collapse and the governments’ ability to repay all the debt that they owe.”

Chris Martenson
August 3, 2015 - Vicious Out of Control Downturn Coming - Economic researcher and co-founder of Peak Prosperity, Dr. Chris Martenson, says, “Here’s where we are in the larger story. World economies can’t grow anymore, at least not like they used to. We are not going to see 3, 4 or 5 percent real growth. The pie is no longer expanding like it used to, and here’s the problem. The banking overlords got used to a certain take or lifestyle. They became addicted to a certain amount of skim, and when everything is expanding, the banks can skim, and there is enough left over for things like middle class and 401ks to go up and pensions to be funded. When the economy is not growing fast enough, and the skimming continues, then there is not enough left over for other people. That’s where we are in the story. That’s step one. Step two is will the banks convert all of their loans into physical hard assets, and the answer is yes.”
