Image result for could price of gold go to zero

Today, our prices are ‘virtual’ (inner units of consciousness) and this means that the price of gold and silver could go to ZERO. The metals, however, would continue to EXIST! Algorithms could drive any price to zero if our authorities desired this result. It’s now possible as real human beings no longer SET our prices.

Currently, the price of spot gold is $1479/ounce and the price of spot silver is $17/ounce. But prices are virtual and this means that the PRICE could be manipulated down to ZERO (if our authorities desire this event). There is no free market which bids on this spot price of gold and silver (today). All this ended with the advent of computer trading and the use of algorithms to set prices (mostly since 2009). The price of gold and silver is determined (today) via algorithms and this means that an algorithm could short these metals (in our futures markets) and drive the PRICE down to ZERO. This is now possible as machines determine our prices. And our prices are VIRTUAL.

Keep in mind that the metal itself (gold/silver) would continue to exist (independent of a price) as the metals are physical and material. But the PRICE of these metals is virtual and thus price could be driven down to zero via machine trading strategies. Have you noticed that many gold and silver stocks are driven down (daily) even as the fundamentals of a mining company are improving. I have noticed this with Victoria Gold, Impact Silver, Gold Mining, Great Panther Silver, Endeavor Silver, First Majestic Silver and many other gold and silver stocks. Prices do not reflect the real tangible value of these mining companies. Why?

Prices do not reflect VALUE today (as I wrote about in a prior missive). Price and Value can diverge significantly. What creates our prices today are machine driven algorithms. These programs can buy and sell a mining company (or any virtual contract being traded) to enhance or suppress its price. It’s all done with algorithms which operate without any human emotion. The old days of negotiated prices (to set value) is over and the days of manipulated prices are here. I have noticed this for many years.

The spot price of silver can be manipulated so that it does not change (materially) from day to day (or it can be driven down/up with algorithmic trading). I maintain that silver and gold (the virtual prices) have been suppressed by our central planners for years. It’s done with an algorithm programmed to trade this commodity and control its PRICE. The same goes for mining companies. The price is NOT negotiated by real human traders but it is created by algorithms and computer software. Computers can monitor, control, manipulate, and rig any price today (it’s a decision which our central planners can execute with their computer trading strategies). All this can be done behind closed doors.

I have recognized the daily manipulations, price suppression, and rigging activity for most gold/silver stocks, ETF’s, plus the daily spot pricing of these precious metals. Prices are rigged daily and this can now be accomplished by our central planners who operating trading desks BEHIND closed doors (like those at the New York Fed on Liberty Street). Some 500 day traders operate at our New York Fed on Liberty Street and these traders have access to unlimited trading digits for their daily manipulations. Our entire system is now so corrupt that few desire to expose the corruption. How long can this continue with no real complaints by our trading community and our mining company leaders?

Mr. Trump now wants more QE and a drop in all our interest rates so he can advance his political career. Does he understand our corrupt system or what? Read what he said on Tuesday here:

President Donald Trump on Tuesday (December 17) called on the independent Federal Reserve to slash borrowing costs and inject cash into the economy.
Trump has increasingly pressured the Federal Reserve to take steps to juice the economy ahead of his bid for reelection in 2020.

Conclusion: Why do so few pundits, media, and business leaders ignore all this financial corruption within our system? I have been writing about this corruption for years but FEW seem to care or desire to understand. I find this shocking. Our entire financial system is now mostly VIRTUAL and within our consciousness and few seem to notice this illusion of the mind. Traders assume that all is going well as the stock markets and select stock indices continue Upward into bubble territory. But is this going to END at some point and disappoint the many who rely on this daily corruption? I think so!

The TRUMP impeachment will turn negative with a vengeance if our stock markets should crash. The one savior for Mr. Trump and his administration is our continuing growing stock market and Mr. Trump seems to KNOW this. People FEEL well when the markets go up and up (indefinitely). The Donald’s tweets reveal that he wants MORE financial corruption and Fed manipulation in our economy (to benefit HIM). He desires to rule over all of us for another five years and all this is dependent upon him getting re-elected in 2020. To get re-elected he NEEDS a stock market that does NOT CRASH.

America rules over the entire financial planet as our virtual DOLLAR is KING over all the virtual currencies. This relationship allows America to borrow and borrow with no real consequence. We ignore others so as to continue our consumption habits. Our debt is now unpayable. Our deficits can not decline given the spending habits of our leaders. The ONLY salvation for Mr. Trump and his administration is our FED (and their continuing rigging of our markets to prevent a market crash). This rigging will continue until it ENDS. When it ENDS the entire financial house of cards will fold into ‘nothingness’. Virtual money is a form of ‘nothingness’. Think for yourself to discern.


Enjoy the Holiday Season. I will do likewise. I am:
