Shocking Charts: Is This “Banker’s Tell” Predicting a Market Crash In The Near Future?

With all of the variables in play it is impossible to predict the exact moment of the triggering event that will lead to the next stock market crash. But every so often a blaring red siren pops up that is worthy of our attention.

Trend analyst and stock trader Greg Mannarino of Trader’s Choice may have just spotted such a signal. He calls it a possible “banker’s tell” that may be giving us advance warning of a coming market event that could lead to the crash many observers expect is inevitable.

The following two charts show the price for the SLV silver Exchange Traded Fund from just before the crash in 2008 compared to what it looked like over the last six months. As he notes in his recent interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watch Dog, the pattern similarity is uncanny.

We’re seeing almost identical price action with regard to silver that we saw one month prior to the crash of Lehman Brothers in 2008. That means something may be lurking here on the horizon.

Is history going to repeat itself again? We understand there’s a lot of shady things going on here, so anything can happen here.

SLV in 2008:

slv-2008

SLV Now:

 

slv-now1

Within weeks of this pattern developing in 2008 we saw one of the largest market crashes in American history, as depicted by the following chart:

slv-and-market-crash

To be clear Mannarino himself suggests that, given the heavy monetary machinations from the Federal Reserve, there is a strong probability that stock markets will continue to soar to record highs for the time being as the Federal Reserve and their European central banking counterparts continue to pump money into the system with reckless abandon.

But, as we all know, nothing lasts forever.

Whether the stock market crashes in the near future or not, what we know is that the Fed will continue to debase our currency. This will lead to higher prices for key resources like food and energy, and a continued impoverishment of  Main Street. In the end, so much wealth will have been taken from the American people through inflation that there will be nothing left to fuel the economy and the inevitable crash will be upon us.

But for now, there may still be an opportunity to protect your personal wealth and even grow it.

In the following interview with Greg Hunter, Mannarino notes that the latest drop in silver may be one of the few instances in our lifetimes that we’ll see silver priced lower than it costs to get it out of the ground.

Right now… we are well below the all-in production cost of physical silver. What does this mean?

Honestly, this has to be the greatest opportunity as an investment vehicle – silver – in the history of the world. How anyone cannot understand why this is a great opportunity right now is beyond me.

If you can get any asset – I don’t care what it is – below production cost… a car or a house… you should jump all over it. 

Watch the full interview with USA Watchdog and Greg Mannarino as he discusses market manipulation, developing trends and the real possibility of a global war being the end result:

The current silver spot price is hovering around $17.50, a significant drop from it’s recent highs a few years when it topped $50 per ounce. Perhaps, as Greg Mannarino notes, “it’s time to jump all over it.”

We know a crisis of epic proportions is on its way. And, as history has showed, when the people lose confidence in their government and traditional investments collapse, precious metals become the asset class of last resort. This may well be one of the last times that we’ll see silver at under $20 for quite a while – perhaps until a new currency system is introduced after the dollar has been wiped out.

  1. FED up says:

    I don’t know about a crash based on these chart patterns, but one is coming — that is unavoidable at this point. I once said that silver under $20 will be an unbelievable opportunity if it happens again. It’s here. These are 2009 prices right here. I didn’t know it cost more to pull it out of the ground than to buy it on the free market. Even better.

    • FreeSlave says:

      What’s the best way to buy silver? From who?

      • In amounts under $500.00 per buy, using cash, at a local reputable dealer. Keep your transactions as untraceable as possible, make sure it’s in your possession as metal and never keep it all in one place.

          The Goldman Tapes And Why The Delusion Of Macro-Prudential Regulation Means The Next Crash Is Nigh

          “…what the tapes really show is that the Fed’s latest policy contraption – macro-prudential regulation through a financial stability committee – is just a useless exercise in CYA.”

          “It is not, as Janet Yellen insists, a supplementary tool to contain and remediate the unintended consequence – that is, excessive financial speculation – of the Fed’s primary drive to achieve full employment and fill the GDP bathtub to the very brim of its potential.

          Instead, rampant speculation, excessive leverage, phony liquidity and massive financial instability are the only real result of current Fed policy.”

          Smoking Gun Evidence That The New York Fed Serves The Interests Of Goldman Sachs

          “As a recent Bloomberg article explained, it has become “common practice” for regulators to leave “their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate.”

          “A very brave lawyer named Carmen Segarra made a series of audio recordings Lawyer (46 hours) while she was working for the New York Fed.

          When Carmen Segarra was first embedded at Goldman Sachs, she was absolutely horrified by what she was seeing and hearing. But her superiors were so obsessed with covering up for Goldman that they actually pressured her to alter the notes that she took during meetings…”

          “Needless to say, someone like Segarra that did not “go along with the program” was not going to last long at the New York Fed. After only seven months, she was fired…”

          “The New York Fed has been caught red-handed serving the interests of Goldman Sachs, and no number of strongly-worded denials is going to change that.”

        • This is the most perfect advice right here. Small amounts under $500.00 at a time, from a local dealer who does not ream you.

          Many people are ok with generic .999 silver, I know I am. Do not be fooled into paying premiums.

          @the durango kidd:

          Let me get this straight. So now the durango kidd is entertaining odds of a stock market crash that earlier he said would/could NOT happen because the FED had a “handle” on monetary policy.

          Have you abandoned your faith in Central Banking DK?

          Or are you just playing to the crowd???

          Personally, I think it’s the latter!

            YMWW: The mechanisms of central banking are required for a large sophisticated global economy that brings chocolate, rubber, bananas, and scores of other everyday goods to the USA for US to consume and enrich our lives.

            The Federal Reserve, which is a cabal of private banks is not. As many times as I have educated you upon this fact you should have grasped it by now.

            Are you really that dumb or just bored and want to waste my time for a reply??? 🙁

            • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

              The central bankers are like a drug cartel poisoning the financial markets and holding hostages for randsome like debt slaves. Free markets decide supply and demand not 5 people from Tribe family called the Rothchilds. Hang the bankers and swiftly.

            • Dean GULberry says:

              Bullshit, DK. Central banks serve only themselves.

              • durango kidd says:

                Dean: I do not disagree with that statement, but you need to differentiate between central banking mechanisms that facilitate commerce, and the Federal Reserve cartel.

                If you can survive in today’s world without so much as an EBT card then you are a hunter gatherer. However, your computer is an example of the commerce that these mechanisms facilitate. 🙂

              durango kidd says:

              “The mechanisms of central banking are required for a large sophisticated global economy.”

              That’s a load of crap!

              The mechanisms of central banking are NOT required for a large sophisticated global economy. The mechanisms of central banking are only required when a countries currency is Fiat – Toilet Paper Money.

              Fiat money is currency that the government has declared to be legal tender, but is not backed by a physical commodity. The value of fiat money is derived from the relationship between supply and demand rather than the value of the material that the money is made of such as gold or silver. Fiat money is based solely on faith. Fiat is the Latin word for “it shall be.”

              The history of fiat money has been one of failure. In fact, EVERY fiat currency since the Romans first began the practice in the first century has ended in devaluation and eventual collapse, of not only the currency, but of the economy that housed the fiat currency as well. It will be NO different for the USD.

              “The Federal Reserve, which is a cabal of private banks is not.”

              Is not what..?

              … Engaged in “the mechanisms of central banking?”

              LMAO!

              DK… Your cheese has definitely slid off it’s cracker!!!

              Folks, the FED IS a Central Bank. The FED IS Central Banking.

              DK, “are you really that dumb or just bored and want to waste my time for a reply?”

              • durango kidd says:

                YMWW: Even a gold backed currency would require the mechanisms of central banking to facilitate trade: interstate, intrastate, and internationally.

                Do you know what a “Letter of Credit” is? didn’t think so. LMAO!!! 🙁

          • durango kidd says:

            Check the archives dim wit. I have never said:

            Harvested some soybeans tonight. Over 60 bu. per acre. Too bad the markets are down.

            • BigB says:

              @Bazinga.

              Now that you harveted them what is the process?

              I have just completed this morning the Lye portion of processing my olives and am on to the salt solution for three days. Then I will decide how many will be black olives and how many will remain green. Three days from now, give or take, I will can approximatley 20 gallons of olives. Don’t know why so much but what the hell.

              Next weekend I am going to harvest about 20 lbs of honey from my bee’s although I have several gallons stashed away and it never goes bad. May even transfer my one hive into a new super.

                Strictly a cash crop. Taking them to the elevator this am. Going to prep the land for corn next year, though at this point it is looking like a money loser. Going to have to pay strict attention to the commodities markets and hedge the best I can to make it work. Have about 1100 more acres of soybeans and 900 acres of field corn to take this fall between me and the rest of the family.

                I’m intrigued about the olives. Where are you at, I am in S Central MN.

              • hmmmmm says:

                I eat pasta salad(cold or not) every week–you can NEVER have too many olives! 🙂

              • BigB says:

                I am in N. California. I take it that corn you mentioned is feed corn? With the price of corn for cattle feed you must be able to make a profit on that?

                I like olices as much as the next guy but think the wife and I went a little overboard. 20 Gallons???? If any of you who know me just letr me know and you can have a gallon. I just learned tonight that green and black olives are the same. Because when you process them they are all colors so mass producers let them thru oxengynation let them turn black so the public can’t see the blemishes.

        Simplest and easiest way is to go to your local coin shop and buy US Silver Eagles, Canada Maple Leaves, or Mexican Onzas. All are gov’t produced 1 oz. coins and will be readily convertible once the time comes.

        Avoid bars and non-gov’t mint rounds for now.

        You can order from online retailers, as well. For a first time buyer, better to stay local.

        Do not buy from Craigslist or any other source other than a reputable dealer. Lots of fake goods out there.

        I’ve bought from Provident Metals, and have always been please with their prices, products, and service.

        They currently have 1 oz silver rounds for 79¢ over spot, cash price. They cheapest junk silver is < $2 over spot.

        Their shipping is very reasonable, and they have no minumum quantity.

        If you can find a local dealer, maybe a pawn shop or jewelry dealer, you might be able to get decent prices, but you have to shop around.

        You used to be able to find some on ebay, but decent deals there are few and far between.

    • SolitaryMan says:

      I am once burned twice shy.
      In 1979-80 I bought silver
      at nearly 50 bucks an ounce
      because I was afraid the
      house of cards was going to
      collapse.

      I almost cried as I watched
      the price slowly erode down
      to four dollars an ounce.

      Today, I can only bring myself
      to squirrel away preps and lots
      of ammo. Chicken shit?
      You bet I am.

      • SolitaryMan, I have to agree! Back in the day, the calculations used to determine who was poor are certainly different than today? One category was based on whether or not you owned a TV? I have some friends who are worried to death? I have been poor when I was a child and in my earlier twenties. I know what it is like and know all to well what going to bed hungry means. Today, my own family has worked hard to move above poverty and to live within our means? Short of riots and total chaos and people willing to kill to have what someone else has…we will all learn how to live through yet another Great Depression. While the current generation has no compassion for others and only worried about themselves and what they can gain…it will be much harder, but in the end they will become much stronger and hopefully rise above they fray…to regain America as a stronger nation with great compassion for follow Americans. If, not everything up to this point will all be for not! You sir, I pray will survive and rise above as a stronger person and the strength to find a better way of life as the ashes settle. God Bless!

Look at the new preppers in 2012 who went out and paid $3K for an AR15. And $2 per round for 556 ammo. Lol. If I had more than one AR at that time I would have sold it at the peak. Right now Stock up heavy in all calibers of ammo. You will soon be rewarded bigtime. Forget .22 ammo. Go for 9mm 45mm and all rifle calibers. Lots of 5.56 back up the truck!!

    • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

      What these 2 charts tell me is that Silver should be heading down to $10 to $12 range shortly. Like I said Silver is Dead. You can buy all the Silver you want under $10 soon, and in fact I bet silver Drops back to $4 range before you can sell it. I dumped all my silver at $42 back in March 2012. I laughed all the way out of the Jewlery buyers store. LoL. And I swt emails toall my friends and family to sell their silver at that time too!!!l

    Mac you really should be running a calendar and taking bets. I’ll buy the 15th through 21st. Just saying. How much do I owe you and what’s the payoff when I win? 🙂

  6. Warchild Dammit! says:

    You are well supplied,have extra cash would obviously spread your assets about,including some PM’s,as to whether this is a tell tale sign,who knows.With so many world events that can change the markets really hard to tell what would trigger next crash,but given all the fuzzy math in the finance world/govt.s ect. a crash will come no doubt unless a worse event i.e. comet/nukes come first.

    • the renegade braveheart says:

      Warchild, my investments are in storable food, water, water purification items, medical supplies, campling gear, guns, ammo, etc.; things that will help me stay alive. The “dividend” I get from those investments is something called “peace of mind”, knowing I have done what is necessary to get through whatever curveballs life throws at me. I don’t have the first dollar tied up in any kind of market. That was never my cup of tea.

      • Warchild Dammit! says:

        PM is just another asset,can help protect buying power from inflation and if you make it to other side of whatever hits might be a good jump start in the “brave new world”.I have all the items you mention,would also consider land before pm’s,done,though will admit got a inside deal.

      • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

        Time to “Flock Your Gear” get all your items together and take inventory. Check your food expirations in your bugout bag. Load your high capicity Mags and chamber a round. Check the air in your BOV tires including the spare. Check all fluids and have an exra few cans of motor oil on hand. Check check amd double check your communications, hand Hamm Radios, charge your batteries. Replenish your water supplies, food supplies, pick up thst extra bag of beans and rice, clean and lube your battle rifle and of course you already have your weapons sighted in. Fill a few sand bags just in case and load the in a wheel barrel for easy moving to strategic points where you have a good sight of the road leading to your house and line of fire. Bury an ammo box at each location just in case. They may cut off EBT CARDS again just as a distraction as they pillage assets and escape. Get Ready this is not a drill.

      Funny how real terrorist attacks the P2B try to minimize the attack as work place violence, but then their invented false flag events they blow up full scale like its the real deal. The Boston bombing was a set up. And they came right out and said ignore all other information and focus just on these 2 persons. All to roll out their practice run for Martial Law. Why do you think they are running these Bkackhawk helicopter practice runs in major cities? Get ready folks. Got your SHTF PLAN in place?

  9. Kulafarmer says:

    Off topic
    Just planted some seeds from one of these survival seed places that i got 3 years ago,
    Almost none of the stuff germinated, vs the other seeds i usually plant that had an almost 100% germination,
    I would suggest folks rotate their seeds, get new ones every 6 months or so just for the hell of it, theres going to be alotta hungry peeps otherwise.

    • Wind River Mom says:

      Kulafarmer,

      Agreed. I tested corn from a 2 yr old seed vault and only 5 germinated (50% germination). Not good.

      I harvest a portion of my veggie seeds and test them the following year prior to planting in the ground by:

      1) put 10 seeds in a coffee filter and fold it in half
      and wet the coffee filter
      2) put coffee filter inside of a baggie and zip all but one inch of the baggie shut
      3) put baggie in the sun – they should start sprouting within 8-10 days. If they don’t, you didn’t waste your time planting. Considering we have a short growing season here, I can’t afford to waste even two weeks with seeds that don’t germinate.

      • I store my seeds year to year in plain old brown paper sacks in the deep freeze. most heirloom veggie seeds i use start to have decreased germination after 2yrs. rotatation is important…just like rotating canned goods, and save seeds through out the growing season from each plant to keep genetics strong.

        I will be testing my first winter wheat planting experience with in the next few weeks.. waiting for the flies to die off some more..

      • The Old Coach says:

        I’ve completely had it with these “prepper” seed companies. I buy all my seed online from Burpee now.

      • Kulafarmer says:

        Yea, the cabbage family stuff is a little more forgiving but seems almost everything else it 2 years tops for a decent germ, the peas, soy beans, onions and dark seeded lettuce are the worst, is pretty easy to go to seed savers and buy a few hundred dollars worth of OP seed once a year just to be sure as well as your own home saved stuff, the seed saving is tricky, lots of variables

    • Genius says:

      Kula, we planted seeds from 5 years ago and had about 90% germination. Just keep them in the freezer in baggies. These are the non hybrid natural seeds. We had tomatoes come up on theyre own from where we planted some last year too 🙂

      • Kulafarmer says:

        I planted chard from 07 and it sprouted, corn from 08 same thing,
        Was mostly just pointing out that its best to have some redundancy in your seed supply, was real disappointed that a so called survival seed stash didnt grow.
        That could mean starvation.

    • hmmmmm says:

      Thanks Kula…I am buying packets and need to label the year bought so to use the oldest first.

    We all know world war is coming…extreme nationalism, extreme bankers manipulating, extreme bubbles, extreme greed, extreme resource depletion, extremism of Islam, and extreme lack of rule of law…how else could this end?

    So keep on stocking up on the PMs, if you must, but I tell you what — IF this world ends up the way people think it will — with a “NWO”: (1) They will NOT allow you to keep wealth in amounts not sanctioned by them, if they even allow you to live. (2) Your “neighbors” will turn on you and “turn you in” if there is even a hint of wealth. (3) This world will be so devastated that PMs will mean squat and ultimately make you a target.

    So how will you hide that kind of tangible wealth until sanity returns to the world? There are scores and scores of stories about “found” treasures in the UK from Rome’s invasions…wealth that people never came back for.

    Me, personally, I don’t intend on carrying that kind of extra weight around or having to even worry about it.

    look, there is only one card left for the globalist zionist neocon cantral bankers and it’s this…

    zog amerika’s fake fiat dollar is solid till 2050.

    the fiat dollar wont collapse till the middle east is firmly under israel’s control and israel no longer needs zog amerika’s 600 billion a year fiat money injection to survive.

    so… chill.

    stock up now while it’s still AFFORDABLE and legal. hyperinflation is going to get alot worse as we get closer to the 2050 end game.

    then just sit back and watch the world global slow-mo implode over the next 35 years.

    everything till then is gravy, try to find some joy on the ride to complete collapse and reset of zog amerika and the fed reserves fake fiat amerikan dollar.

    the best thing to do to survive what is coming is to simply DON’T GET INVOLVED IN ANY OF IT AND GET OUT OF IT’S WAY!

    r.g.

  19. I remember back in April 2011 I commented here that I was getting out of my silver position, due to the ‘parabola’ that was forming. My last sale was at $44.50. Right after that, boom, down it went.

    I bought silver back on the way down: 34.00, 32.00, 27.00, with my biggest buy around 23.50. (It’s too bad I lost it all in a tragic boating accident).

    I recently found out I have $22,000 in an old 401k that I’d basically left $500 in 20 years ago! Hallelujah!

    Guess what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna buy 1,000 silver rounds. When the stock market crashes, silver MAY drop to $14.00 or $15.00. That’s when I’m pulling the trigger.

    If you want to get rich, you have to take chances. I’m going all in. I stand to make a fortune. (Once I learn to scuba dive and recover my lost metal at the bottom of Lake Titicaca!)

  20. (As a side note, there are legends that the Mayans dumped all of their gold in Lake Titicaca when the Spaniards invaded………could be tons of it down there!)

    • Smokey says:

      You mean the Incas, Lake Titicaca is in Bolivia.

      They’ve been looking for it for 500 years !

      I think the Spanish got it all when they ransomed the Inca king, a large room was filled with gold artifacts, when it was full, the Spaniards killed the king.

    Is a crash coming; YES! When will it happen; ONLY A FEW KNOW! Who will survive it; ONLY THE PREPARED! Will Martial Law be implemented; MORE THAN LIKELY! Will America survive; NO! Make sure you have the basics covered, just like baseball you have 4 bases; the bases for survival First= Food, Second= Shelter, Third= Defense, and where the runs count HOME PLATE= WATER. If you’re not fully prepare get so quickly. I’m saying sometime in the year 2015.

    When the Shanghai Exchange runs out of silver this December, things will probably go nuts with the price. A number of articles on this are at King World News, http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/King_World_News.html which I think does a decent job with financial reporting. AG (silver) could go lower for the next month or two, but don’t try to time the bottom Of course, anything can happen, but this looks like a solid bet, as the banksters are back to their blatant AU/AG smash – possibly in advance of bad news that would cause the sheeple to look at gold/silver. This smash is an attempt to ward the low information voters out of actions to protect themselves

  25. The Lone Ranger says:

    1- Can’t afford to buy silver? No problem!

    Just get ALL your 401k/Pension assets transferred ASAP!!! or converted INTO silver (either bullion coins such as the 99.99% American Eagle Silver Dollar or rare investment bullion coins) with a reputable firm! It’s a NONtaxable event AND, IF you want, you can store the silver at any place you so designate, including your home (not entirely recommended). Do NOT do ANY silver purchases where you only have a piece of paper representing what you own. You MUST have the silver coins IN YOUR ‘PHYSICAL’ possession!

    2- Must have 3-6 months nonperishable food stored (be redundant and put it in different places).

    Don’t have that? No problem! Research low cost nonperishable food lists online such as pasta boxes on sale, some sauce, and much more, and do this all piecemeal since everyone is on a tight budget these days.

    3- Get some high-end AA-powered LED flashlights. Remember, two is one and one is none. Be redundant. Store batteries redundantly/elsewhere as well.

    4- The crash IS coming: so just like you know a hurricane or other storm is coming and will result in a power outage, get WHAT you can NOW. Don’t worry, not one person will have EVERYTHING “sufficiently” prepped, because “sufficiently” all depends on how long whatever multitude of crises (yes, plural, not singular) tax all of us.

    Form teams. Remember Opsec.

    Last, but not least, get right with God and pray.

    St. Faustina’s, “Jesus, I trust in You” is a very powerful prayer, as is the Lord’s Prayer (the Our Father).

    Focus on what you CAN do.

    Focus on what you CAN control.

    Though much suffering is coming because we are on the cusp of World War III, the collapse of the petro dollar, & because the evil people sell weapons to both sides to make money off the dead, be on the look out for God the Father’s interventions.

    No need to panic. Almighty God is infinitely more powerful than the evildoers. Don’t abandon your faith. DON’T take the Mark. Stay in God’s Light.

    You are too smart not to outthink these evil doers. And if you and/or I do not make it to the Era of Peace, we’ll be ok. Stay Faith-filled.

  31. Cellar Spider says:

    I tend to ignore technical charts that include data pre September 2012. The economy that we grew up (money supply contracting, increasing) died / crashed that day. i.e. Start Of Quantitative Easing (QE) Infinite.

    Since September 2012, we have an economy whose money supply only grows. The two primary controls the Fed has these days is the usual interest rate modification and the newly created fancy pants tool of “Merely Hinting They Won’t Print 75 billion dollars next month”.

    Just by hinting that causes the beloved fictitious markets to drop by 5%. Leaving things alone just keeps the merry markets going up up up.

    None of it matters to me anyways. The markets today have nothing to do with the real economy.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Agree: wasting your time looking at the technicals and charts won’t show you where things are and where they are going. Since 2008, the government placed the entire economy under the control of both the Fed and the major banks. That means everything is manipulated to the benefit of the government – and its agendas and goals – and enriching the major banks and elites. Under those circumstances, you will never get one over on the house. 99 per cent of what you see written on these sites is the equivalent of reading books on how you can play the house in Vegas. The reality is the house has designed the whole game so it always wins one way or another.

      I’d say, instead, to use your observational skills to make judgements. Visit a country and somebody tells you the place is the wealthiest on the planet, but everybody you meet looks really poor and is in debt and unhealthy, that tells you something is not connecting. Or, as is often the case in the Nordic countries, you visit and find a very high standard of living and health for most of the population. That tells me something as well.

      Make your investments based on those observations first, not technicals, which are manipulated.

      Black market and other transactions that are used to avoid taxes is certainly a factor. Even at a bonified business that has the required sales tax numbers ect. you can sometimes to get the owner to sell you at a better price if you state you are paying cash & don’t need a receipt.I wouldn’t approve of beating the tax man except for the fact those parasites cannot & will not be fiscally responsible. the elected officials use the tax revenue (that they had ought naught to do with the productive earning) to buy themselves votes and give themselves undeservied gains.

  34. watching and waiting says:

    yes another crash is coming.

    BRICS Bank (Brasil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) will be opened on 01-01-2015. The Dollar will no longer be the world’s dominant exchange currency and will eventually go belly-up becouse the printing press is on for 24/7, so it already has no value anymore.

    • Old Guy says:

      I really hope the BRICS is successful. Of course the demise of the Petro dollar will cause extreme hardship here in the USA. However I think the good will outweigh the bad. One good thing is the UN NWO & agenda 21 is funded by the US Petro dollar. If that funding isn’t there the NWO will die and wither on the vine. If our US economy tanks the great influx of illegals coming here wont have any incentive. It will separate the wheat from the chaff.

      • durango kidd says:

        Mexico is about to boom! Many illegals will return home for the factories that will be built there and the jobs that will be created there. The rest should be deported.

        NWO BIG OIL has been waiting for the legal framework from Mexico to fall into place to benefit them. That has happened. As they start drilling Mexico they will provide energy for the new, re-industrialization of Mexico.

        Everything will re-align (according to script) during the next downturn. Forewarned is well positioned for profit as it happens. 🙂

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        This is true: the UN has been increasingly finding it difficult to fund its activities and has been in slow-burn decay for the past decade. It is lowering what it pays people, delaying payments or trying to avoid paying people period, and getting people to work for free. Basically, high-level management are behaving like, at the end of Indiana Jones, when the bad guys are running through the temple grabbing all the gold. They know the game is up and they are just taking what they can get before the lights go out on the petro dollar and their jobs. These are all signs of an organization that is running out of the power of the petro dollar. The realignment is already underway.

        I suspect the UN will be left to die and these other institutions will become more powerful and effectively take over all the things the UN currently does. A good example of the tensions here can be found at international gatherings, where there have been volatile outbursts between China and the UN head. That does not bode well.

  36. Old Guy says:

    Invest in what you know. I bought hungry texas cows back during 2011 when they where having a drought. I was hauling semi loads of hay there and selling it for a premium price. The profit fron the hay more than paid for the cows. I sold one of those cows a few months ago. She cost $560 in 2011. she produced three bull calves during the time I owned her. each calf sold for more than I paid for her. When I sold her she brought $1475. I had bought 38 head of those cattle (a cattle pot load) and did very well on the entire lot. We have just a few head left. We bailed hay & this winter is expected to be very cold & snowy. The hay should sell at a premium price. If you had a source of cheap feed. like kitchen&lunchroom scraps or grain by products hogs could yield a handsome profit. If a SHTF future those who can produce & process food will become wealthy.

  37. TONY says:

    I would like to warn everyone of what most of you are already aware of. October 2014 is the month the crash begins. The Federal Reserves Quantitative Easing ends this month. There will be nothing to fill its void. The markets will crash. End of story. You have been warned.
