Doom! Destruction! Total anarchy in the streets! Wait a minute – the sun has risen and the world is still continuing on as per usual, granted with a few expected hiccups.

The people of the UK have voted and the sound of their voices has been carried to every corner of the globe. Democracy has won the day, proving that the people still have some power! They have voted to leave the bureaucracy-infested EU.

Bought and paid for politicians around the world have engaged in a campaign of fear for months, including President Obama and Hilary Clinton. They have scolded those who wish to regain their independence and told them that they would be sent to the ” back of queue” if they were to leave the EU, crippling them economically.

Well, the people know this is a farce. The UK is still one of the most important economies in the world and is still one of the biggest financial hubs. This will continue on. To suggest otherwise is complete and utter ignorance.

The likes of Nigel Farage and others from the “leave” camp have fought for this very day most of their political careers, and have been scorned and ridiculed for doing so. Today they are vindicated. Today they are the victors.

The vote was close, with official numbers stating that 52% of the votes were for “leave” and 48% were for “stay”. What is even more stunning is the historically high voter turnout at 71.8% – a monumental number.

Today, the markets are adjusting to this new reality. Gold is experiencing its best up day in the last seven years and the best up day when dominated in the British Pound in the last 42 years, up 15% overnight!

As the markets gyrate, so too does the political landscape. Prime Minister David Cameron has announced his resignation , as he strongly supported the “stay” camp and now faces humiliation. He has stated that “fresh” leadership is now needed.

Meanwhile, the bureaucrats in Brussels, the unelected officials who have lorded over the UK, are scrambling to contain the panic among their supporters and within their ranks.

The global elites know that this is a massive blow to their long term plans. They know that this is just the beginning and a tidal wave of nationalism and personal liberty is once again going to sweep across the globe. Those who cannot see this rising tide are either burying their heads in the sand or asleep at the wheel.

Today is one that should be celebrated. Today is the UK’s independence day, a day of victory for the free people of the world and liberty lovers. Today is our day.

People around the world are sick and tired of the status quo. They are sick and tired of the overly political correctness and the way that the system is attempting to control every aspect of our lives. You can see this growing wave of discontent from the ever-growing amount of politicians getting elected around the world with a nationalist ideology.

An increasing mass of people is sick and tired of the welfare state that has been created around us and want to get back to good, honest work – the type of hard effort and commitment that made the West the most prosperous nation in the world. Sadly, over the last few decades a growing portion of the population has gotten lazy and have expected more and more from “daddy” government.

The government has been overjoyed with this fact, as it has allowed them to expand endlessly, creating more and more justification for their existence and increasing their power over we, the people.

No more! That’s right, no more! The tide is starting to shift, the pendulum swung too far and now it is starting to return back to the center. The tools that the government used to “shame” us into walking in step are no longer working and the curtain has been pulled back.

As I stated, you can see this happening all over the Western world, slowly, but surely. The most recent example that we can point to is the popularity of Donald Trump and his national agenda. This proves that a growing portion of those in the United States are sick and tired of what is being spoon-fed to them.

Yet, an even more immediate and important example can be found in Britain, where the people will be voting very soon on “Brexit”. Up until recently, the polls have shown that more people were in favor of staying in the EU than leaving. The government propaganda was working, but has now been chipped away as the facts of how it is destroying those countries partaking can no longer be ignored.

Now, the polls are showing something entirely different. Those in favor of leaving the EU have exploded and they now enjoy a massive 19 point lead! If you follow polling at all, you will know that this is a stunning lead, and one that has the establishment shocked in disbelief.

What is even more heartening for liberty lovers around the world is the fact that only a short while ago, this lead was only 10 points, pointing to the fact that this movement has momentum and at a key time before the votes are taken.

Barring any funny business (which I would not rule out), it appears that Britain will be once again gaining its independence and shedding their un-elected overlords in Brussels.

This victory is being speculated to push gold to new heights, as it is going to lead to short-term uncertainty while the markets prepare for the unknown. However, I know for certain that it is going to lead to long-term prosperity from both a freedom perspective and an economic one for the people of Britain.

Let’s hope the trend remains the same. Let’s hope that the people do what is right and that liberty will reign the world over.

Eric returns to the Weekly Wrap Up this week! He discusses the recent FOMC minutes, the reaction in paper gold and the ongoing, global demand for physical gold.  He describes how Canadian-based precious metals mining companies could see their stocks rise along the lines of what Sprott describes as the “Nortel Effect.”  During the technology bubble in the 1990s through 2000, Nortel rose to represent some ~30% of the Toronto Stock Exchange’s entire market capitalization given that capital all over the world wanted into the stock.

Sprott breaks down the trading action this week and places it into a bigger picture context.  To download an mp3, click the down pointing arrow.  Otherwise, press play:

Behind the scenes is an event unfolding that has the market shaking in its boots. Yet you don’t hear this discussed by the mainstream media, let alone investment bankers.

The reason? It is an event that has been talked about throughout China’s rise to prominence. It has been pondered and feared by Western bankers and politicians. The event I am talking about is the dumping of US treasuries by China.

It is common knowledge, that China has been propping up Western economies over the last decade and longer, it is common knowledge that China has the ability to wipe out the US dollar in one quick motion, by dumping their treasuries on the market.

What is not common knowledge are the recent events that have unfolded behind the scenes in which China has begun this very process.

On August 11th, China unexpectedly devalued the Yuan. This came as a shock to the markets, which saw the currency rapidly plummet by 4% and would have continued to do so if not for the extreme intervention of the Chinese Plunge Protection Team.

Since that time, they have been actively and directly engaging in the Forex markets, where they have propped-up the Yuan and artificially maintained their fix with the US dollar.

How did they do this you ask? By selling US treasuries. That’s right, it is being reported, that in the past two weeks alone, China has sold over $106 billion worth of treasuries! But this isn’t all, since the start of this year, China has sold an additional $107 billion worth of treasuries!

0aca143a67181a589b272d0c343467dd

You read that correctly, not only is China accelerating their dumping of US treasuries, they have hyper-accelerated this process in the last two weeks, dumping almost as much as an entire year’s worth of US treasuries.

Yet, why haven’t treasuries collapsed under this huge influx of supply on the market? This is the true question that you have to ask and is not being answered. Who is buying up this huge influx of supply?

Remember, this is a period of time when the world is facing renewed uncertainty and is already awash with fiat dollars. The first and only likely candidate that comes to mind is the FED.

It is highly likely that the FED has been monetizing their own treasuries, in an act that is akin to paying off a credit card with a credit card.

As the situation in China continues to move into the realm of a full-blown crisis, you have to wonder how much more of their massive stockpile of treasuries are they willing to dump on the market? Likewise, how much more can the FED handle before the market wakes up and sees this Ponzi scheme for what it is?

The global correction that began with the start of 2015 continues. On the surface, everything appears to be fine, but in reality, the cracks in the global economy are appearing more rapidly.

The ECB was forced into announcing a new QE policy this year. Already, they are hinting that MORE money printing may be required. No surprise there, as I have often pointed out that we are in QE to infinity. If the money flowing taps are turned off, then a global correction of monumental proportions will occur.

The situation in the United States is no better, from bad manufacturing data reports to continuing low employment numbers. Nothing appears to be getting better. At best this staggering amount of money printing has sustained us in a period of sideways motion.

The Chinese economy, the powerhouse of the global economy has been suffering throughout 2015 as well, another sign that the global economy is sick and is setting itself up for another 2008 style disaster.

Unfortunately, things do not appear to be getting better, as the most recent figures out of China have been released and they don’t look good. GDP dropped to 7%, the lowest in six years! Granted, this is still a number that most countries would be frothing at the mouth to achieve, but remember, a slowdown is a slowdown, as the Chinese economy once sported a whopping 14% GDP!

The numbers continue to get worse from there, Chinese retail sales grew at their slowest pace in 9 years. Auto sales have taken a nose dive and Chinese fixed asset investments are the lowest since the year 2000!

Making matter worse is the fact, that Chinese home prices continue to plunge and industrial production has fallen to levels not seen since 2008.

All in all, things are going from bad to worse for the global economy. The Chinese economy is a bell weather for the rest of the world, it is the world’s largest manufacturer and the facts are simple: People are not spending what they used to spend. The man on the street is just getting by, and if he has the foresight, preparing for the worst.

Expect another wave of QE from Western bankers in the future, how long they can keep this ponzi scheme going is anyones guess, but one day, the markets will correct and sanity will return.

India-gold-demand-2013-Q3

India-gold-demand-2013-Q3TND Guest Contributor:  Nathan McDonald | Sprott Money Blog |

India, known for its close connection to precious metals and the value its citizens place on the noble metal, has always been one of the world’s largest consumers of gold, despite the best wishes of its government to disconnect its people from the yellow metal.

In the face of persistent sanctions on the importation of gold into the country, India’s largest jewelry manufacturer, Rajesh Exports, is taking an unprecedented step in the gold market.

No longer are they content to purchase gold on the open market.  Rajesh Mehta, the billionaire who owns the company, is taking matters into his own hands and has begun to acquire the mines himself.

The focus at the moment is on mines in Australia, a country where the billionaire is currently focusing on expanding sales and creating a closer relationship.

At the moment, Rajesh is looking to accumulate $700 million worth of mining assets. In the past, the company has been a large importer of gold from Australia.

With this step the company has effectively circumvented the government of India’s draconian importation laws that surround gold. Another example of how government can’t keep the free market down forever.

This action will add directly to the company’s bottom line and increase control over India’s gold market. No longer will they be at the whim of the open market in their ability to acquire gold, a commodity that is known for its tight supply and growing demand by Eastern Central Banks.

The untold effects of this development are yet to be seen, yet it is not hard to ascertain what may unfold. Other large manufacturers of jewelry and consumers of gold are undoubtedly going to take notice, if they begin to acquire mines as well, then we could be looking at a full blown gold race.

Already all gold currently mined that is placed on the open market is bought and accounted for. If mines begin to disappear in a significant way, because manufacturers begin buying the “cow” rather than the “milk”, then the price of gold will explode higher, as demand will still remain, yet availability will be greatly reduced.

This action by Rajesh Exports, is just one more example of the stellar fundamentals underlying the physical gold market. Forget about the abysmal paper market and focus on the facts. The future for gold is bright indeed.

TND Guest Contributor: Nathan McDonald | Sprott Money Blog |

Greece continues to stand on a knife’s edge. The newly elected government is scrambling to finance its expenses. Day to day cash is scarce, especially in the face of a collapsing tax base and revenues.

In every sense, Greece is bankrupt and being kept afloat by shady accounting at best. Its days are numbered. The question that remains is whether or not the EU or rather Germany will keep the Ponzi scheme going? In all likelihood it will continue, at least for the short term.

Greece has but a few short weeks left remaining in cash reserves. It has been shut out of the debt markets, which is understandable given the horrible mess it is in. Banks are fearful to issue loans or buy debt, at least until a more solid deal can be reached with the IMF and EU in securing additional financing.

The future is bleak. This month alone, the government of Greece must find a way to meet its current obligations to the IMF of $1.5 billion euros, on top of refinancing its short term debt of $3.2 billion euros!

In the short-term, the shady accounting practices may help keep them running. The Hellenic Financial Stability Fund, which was the bank rescue vehicle used in 2012, can be used. Greece plans on withdrawing $555 million euros, which will help, but not for long.

Of much greater concern to the citizens of Greece is the government’s intentions to tap into government pension funds and other state entities that are sitting on cash. This money, which has been set aside, could be used in the “short” term to help finance the daily operation of the government.

This should not be taken lightly by the citizens of Greece, if the banking sector won’t loan money to the government, then you know for a fact that there is a good chance funds withdrawn from pension plans will never be repaid. Essentially robbing its citizens of their future.

It appears that Greece is ready to begin cannibalizing upon itself. Unless a deal can be reached with the EU to extend bailout terms and reduce obligations, then we are looking at a massive collapse in Greece’s short term future.

The question is, what will be the ramifications of such a collapse? Will Greece be forced to default and be removed from the EU? Will a return to the Drachma be ushered in? The future is uncertain, but one thing is for sure; more debt, is not the solution. Greece needs to swallow its medicine and face the music. The sooner the better.
