“We’re already at 12% of prime-aged men without jobs,” said Darrell West, vice president of the Brookings Institution think tank, at a forum in Washington, D.C. on Monday. That number has grown steadily over the past 60 years, but it could triple in the next 30 years because of new technology such as artificial intelligence and automation.

It could be even worse for some parts of the population, West argued. The rate for unemployment of young male African Americans, for instance, is likely to reach 50% by 2050.

“That, my friends, is a catastrophe,” West said.

A lot of things can be done to avert such a problem and rethinking education is one of them, West said. “Schools need to change their curriculum so that students have the skills needed in the 21st century economy.”

Molly Kinder, senior adviser at progressive think tank New America, said the current state of manufacturing tells a story that will be seen see across many occupations. Jobs that don’t require advanced education will be replaced by automation, displacing low-wage, low-skilled workers.

Public policymakers need to make education, especially in technology, for low-skill workers a priority to combat the potential for soaring unemployment rates, she said. Full Story

The purpose of such articles is misdirection. They want to give the so-called educated elite a false sense of comfort that only low end paying jobs will be taken away.  Otherwise, many parents might think twice about wasting a fortune on educating their kids for professions that will no longer be around.

Once AI is perfected, and it’s improving at mindboggling pace, the high-end logic based jobs will be the ones that are replaced at the fastest pace.  Why would you target a street cleaner as opposed to top managers that are paid seven figures, get sick, take breaks and are susceptible to emotional breakdowns when a computer will never suffer from any of those issues and work 24/7 at a fraction of the cost?  Logic states you would go after the areas that cost you the most, especially if the work can be done 5-10X faster, better and cheaper.

Dangers of religion due to misunderstanding concept of Light vs Darkness

Dangers of religion due to misunderstanding concept of Light vs Darkness

We are told to walk in the path of light but what if most people misunderstood this message. Typically light is made to look as good, and darkness is supposed to be bad.  If most so-called contrarians were true contrarians they would question this premise, if they applied mass psychology and common sense, they would most definitely question the above perceptions.

Let’s examine a few facts

Science has now proven that approx 95% of the universe is black (as in darkness). So that means only 5% is in the light so as to speak.  This information alone should be enough to make one think. But let’s go further it has been shown that humans on average use about 5-7% of their brain capacity and geniuses at most 15%. Hence it’s safe to assume that the most advanced human being would only have knowledge of maybe 0.05% if not less of this 5% of the universe that is in the light.

Next, the reason most people are afraid of the dark is that they fear the unknown, but if you fear the unknown then how can it ever become known. So, in essence, the fear is irrational, as it’s based on pure hearsay or superstitious beliefs, twisted religious beliefs, etc.  Now just with the above info, a contrarian would say perhaps the darkness holds the secret, as 95% of the universe is black.  How could you possibly learn anything by just studying 5% of what’s out there; that is the equivalent of some jackass reading one book on investing and assuming he is the world’s best investor.

Let’s dig even deeper

And use the knowledge that is available to anyone that might want to pursue this subject further.  An object gets its colour by absorbing all the other colours except the colour it reflects, so a blue object is blue because it absorbs all the other colours except blue.  Taking this one step further we could say that the darkness is the path of light only because it absorbs all the light and reflects black and the light is darkness because it absorbs all the black and reflects just the light.

If something is absorbing light, then one would have a better chance of finding the answer there then something that is consuming darkness only. I mean we don’t go to idiots and ask them for advice do we; idiots absorb everything else besides knowledge and the opposite can be said for geniuses.

Okay, this was a simple mental exercise and an examination of the facts using simple data that is available to most individuals. We are making no assertions whatsoever.  Draw your conclusions. All we wanted to do was offer a different view and possibly push you to put your thinking caps on.

Application of the light and darkness concept to the Stock Markets 

Today everything is interrelated; we do not have free market forces anymore. Everything is manipulated; from the food, you eat to data you are provided.  If you are aware of this, you can plan accordingly. Identifying the problem is over 80% of the solution, and this is why most people do not know what to do because they do not understand the problem.  Mass psychology is a very powerful tool, and if employed correctly can help you spot the abnormal levels of manipulation, the masses are subjected to. It would be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the concept of “ Plato’s allegory of the cave.

Final thoughts

It is easy to hide behind concepts that one does not understand and 0r one’s that can only be accepted by those who are willing to believe in something that they have no way of proving for it gives you the opportunity to say “it was not my fault”. When one hides behind something, one can lay blame to some other entity or power, etc.

All you control is the now, enjoy the now and worry less about the next moment for you can’t control that moment. It might come, or it might not come, but if you enjoy the now, then you will embrace a path that pushes you towards a higher level of consciousness. Individuals with higher levels of consciousness are less prone to violence and more prone to dialogue.

If you open minded then consider watching these two videos

Toxic Supplements: Watch what you ingest

Toxic supplements

Before you reach out to buy that so-called healthy supplement that is going to make you feel better remarkably, take a few moments to read what other ingredients it’s packing. A cursory look will reveal that most manufacturers fill their supplements with what can only be labelled as “toxic” or potentially dangerous ingredients.

Here are some of the most common offenders.

  • Preservatives: sodium benzoate, sodium nitrite, BHA, BHT, TBHQ
  • Sweeteners and artificial sweeteners: fructose, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame
  • Flavour enhancers: monosodium glutamate (MSG), hydrolyzed soy protein, autolyzed yeast extract
  • Artificial colors: FD&C Blue Nos. 1 and 2, FD&C Green No. 3, FD&C Red Nos. 3 and 40, FD&C Yellow Nos. 5 and 6, Orange B, Citrus Red No. 2
  •  Mac & Cheese
  • Toxic ingredients: Colouring agents yellow 5 and yellow 6
  • Sports drinks such as Gatorade, etc
  • Toxic ingredients Colouring agents
  • Fat-Free chips
  • Toxic ingredients: Olestra (aka Olean)
  • Citrus flavoured soda
  • Toxic ingredients:  Brominated vegetable oils  (BVO)
  • Cereals & many snacks
  • Toxic Ingredients: BHA and BHT
  • Regular milk and Yogurt
  • Toxic ingredients: rBGH and rBST

Now that’s not all, after all why waste toxic ingredients when you call sell them to the cosmetic industry and make turn poison into dollars. The following clip illustrates how many companies put dangerous ingredients into their cosmetic products all the while claiming that they are only looking out for your best interests.  Now you know why; you don’t look so great after purchasing that $100 bottle of cream that was supposed to shave ten years of your life.

Today’s Media is nothing but a brain washing machine

media brainwashing

Watch the video clip below carefully, it shows to you how almost all the news in the world from commercials sources is scripted and how most news is actually not news, but the lowest form of gossip.  We have moved to the point where stupidity is treated as a valuable asset, where dishonesty is rewarded handsomely and where stamping on your brothers head and crushing his windpipe is viewed as something honourable.  Those that accept these new standards (mostly the cerebrally damaged masses) should be ready for all the pain and suffering that will be rained down on them, for that will be their only reward.  To break free, you need to say no to this type of Pavlovian programming and challenge everything and everyone. Accept nothing and question everything. News from the mainstream media is now worse than sewage.  Sewage can be used to create something.

Montage — Obama’s Iran Deal: A Historic Moment in History

Food for thought

When seriously practiced, the journalistic profession involves gathering information concerning individuals, locales, events, and issues. In theory such information informs people about their world, thereby strengthening “democracy.” This is exactly the reason why news organizations and individual journalists are tapped as assets by intelligence agencies and, as the experiences of German journalist Udo Ulfkotte (entry 47 below) suggest, this practice is at least as widespread today as it was at the height of the Cold War.

Consider the coverups of election fraud in 2000 and 2004, the events of September 11, 2001, the invasions Afghanistan and Iraq, the destabilization of Syria, and the creation of “ISIS.” These are among the most significant events in recent world history, and yet they are also those much of the American public is wholly ignorant of. In an era where information and communication technologies are ubiquitous, prompting many to harbor the illusion of being well-informed, one must ask why this condition persists.

Further, why do prominent US journalists routinely fail to question other deep events that shape America’s tragic history over the past half century, such as the political assassinations of the 1960s, or the central role played by the CIA major role in international drug trafficking?

Popular and academic commentators have suggested various reasons for the almost universal failure of mainstream journalism in these areas, including newsroom sociology, advertising pressure, monopoly ownership, news organizations’ heavy reliance on “official” sources, and journalists’ simple quest for career advancement. There is also, no doubt, the influence of professional public relations maneuvers. Yet such a broad conspiracy of silence suggests another province of deception examined far too infrequently—specifically the CIA and similar intelligence agencies’ continued involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public.

The idea is to offer you several choices but all paths lead to the same destination

  • The manipulator offers you a number of choices, but the choices all lead to the same conclusion.
  • The same idea or phrase is frequently repeated to make sure it sticks in your brain.
  • Intense intelligence-dampening is performed by providing you with constant short snippets of information on various subjects. This trains you to have a short memory, makes the amount of information feel overwhelming, and the answers provided by the manipulator to be highly desired due to how overwhelmed you feel. life hacker


A declassified document from the CIA archives in the form of a letter from a CIA task force addressed to the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency details the close relationship that exists between the CIA and mainstream media and academia.

The document states that the CIA task force “now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation,” and that “this has helped us turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success” stories,’ and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.” Furthermore, it explains how the agency has “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.”

Although it is a document outlining their desire to become more open and transparent, the deception outlined by various whistleblowers (example) requires us to read between the lines and recognize that the relationships shared between intelligence agencies and our sources of information are not always warranted and pose inherent conflicts of interest. lightonconspiracies

End of multiculturalism and the beginning of crusades

End of Multiculturalism

  1. The era of multiculturalism is over and dead.
  2. There is going to be new massive religious war; we will soon witness a second phase of the crusades. This was the period where the Christian and Muslim world fought bitterly.  The heat is on now; the leaders of the Muslim world have done nothing to form a uniform law in regards to Islam. Any idiot can become an Imam and issue fatwa’s most of which are senseless and violent in nature.  There is no proper hierarchical structure. On the same token, the Christian leaders have not done much to try to push for some agreement with the leaders in the Muslim world and to push these leaders to form a system that treats those who push for violence as outcasts. The only Muslim leader who has consistently tried to form a bridge of friendship between the Muslim and Christian world is Fethullah Gulen, a cleric from Turkey who lives in Pennsylvania. Currently, he is Erdogan’s arch-enemy, and Erdogan is doing everything he can do to destroy his organisation and its people.  Anyway, bottom line, the point of no return has been hit, so going forward from here, we can only expect more violent encounters between these two groups; Sadly there is a group of individuals that have planned this for decades and possibly generations and they are the only ones that will benefit from this. The once quiet Christians and Catholics of the world (Europe, South American, ) are about to pick up their swords and embrace violence.   We are now going to move from the New Testament phase that advocates turning your cheek, to the Old Testament phase that states take an eye for an eye.  On this note, we expect that Europe will lead the way and pass some incredibly harsh and shocking new laws in regards to other religion (primarily against Islam). The once quiet Europeans are about to change their positions; from opening their arms and welcoming new cultures and religions, they are going to clench their hands into a fist and raise their swords.  We are just telling you what we see, not what we want or wish. Wants and wishes are a waste of time; the only thing that matter is reality, and the reality is that we are entering a period of war.
  3. Governments in the west will continue to become more authoritarian in nature, and this will trigger the formation of new groups of freedom fighters. These chaps will utilise computer technology together with regular war strategies to resist; so expect the number of hacker attacks to soar.   The days of civil wars are dawning closer. Watch the matrix and terminator again, for those days are fast approaching. The terminators, in this case, are the governments in the west.
  4. Weather; expect the unexpected and surreal. Humans behave crazy it’s because there are planetary changes taking place. If you understand these changes you can resist, but to resist you must know your enemy and you must understand the problem.  Research how weather affects human and animal behavioural patterns.  We are going to continue to witness strange and spectacular weather patterns. Mother Nature is about to show the world who the true master of this planet is.  Volcanic eruptions will occur in places that no one ever expected, violent earthquakes,  flooding, extreme action in the seas, typhoons, hurricanes, devastating droughts,  , etc.   On the same token, places that are prone to all sorts of disasters or have suffered endless periods of droughts, flooding, etc., will suddenly start to experience a period of extended calm. Remember the equation must always balance.  So places, where the weather was and is extremely harsh, will suddenly start to witness a shift to conditions that are more conducive to life.
  5. Trust will become even more valuable than Gold or platinum. We are entering the phase, where you might not even be able to trust your own shadow. Thus if you have a good friend, remember to treat him or her better than Gold, for they actually are better than gold and extremely hard to find these days. We are now in the midst of the era of lies and deceit.  Remember this old saying too” if you have family you do not need enemies”; we are entering the phase where it could never be truer.



Do not view these changes with dismay.  Life changes, it always did and it always will.  Change is what makes us develop.  For something good to happen, there must be some destruction. The old structure and way of thinking have to collapse.  So after this period of chaos and violence subsides, there will be an extended period of tranquillity and higher thinking. At some point, the entire world will experience a phase shift regarding intellect and perception. For now, there is very little that separates the average man from a single-celled amoeba regarding intelligence. One could argue that the single-celled amoeba is more intelligent regarding its actions. Those that refuse to change will be weeded out, and they will perish. Nature has a way of doing this; thus those individuals that refuse to graduate from the pits of subhuman thinking will be removed from the system; the slogan adapt or die will take on a new meaning in the years to come.

When this period of turmoil ends, man will be able to think like an intelligent being and not like a violent animal whose only distinctive features are his ability to talk, though in most instances he would be better served with silence, and his ability to kill another for no reason at all.  In that sense, one could argue that the biggest and most dangerous virus on this planet is a species called homo-sapien. It’s the only species that kills for nothing and goes out of its way to destroy its habitat. No other species is this idiotic in nature.

Today’s doctors are nothing but legalised drug dealers

legalised drug dealers

Doctors today are a far cry from the Doctors of yesteryear; today they are more likely to be on par with drug dealers. The difference between a doctor and street dealer is that one has a license to deal while the other does not.  Take for example psychotropic drugs; drug manufacturers make a fortune selling what amounts to toxic stuff to individuals in the guise of trying to help them. Watch the video below; it will open your eyes to the abuse drug manufacturers are subjecting the American populace to


In most cases, you are your best doctor  

How many people understand this simple fact? That you can diagnose any problem far better than any doctor could, but because you think a doctor knows more, you will never know anything. You have already accepted the false premise, to begin with, and so you are now limited regarding what you can do to find regarding a cure or a viable treatment for your problem.  Very few people know that every disease is related to stress. Remove the stressor, and the body heals remarkably well, on a simple nutrient dense diet; fruits, veggies, meats, eggs, etc.; things that you find tasty, but that are not full of crap. If you cannot pronounce it properly chances are it should not be in your diet.  Look at any packaging even organic, and you will find out there is a bunch of junk that should not be there.  One that appears everywhere and is extremely dangerous is carrageenan.

Diet; take out the T, and you have died, and that is what literally happens to you when you diet. You die.  You are not supposed to diet or fast. You are supposed to eat correctly. Do you see any animal voluntarily subjecting itself to this kind of stress?   Remember not long ago we stated that to see the picture (any picture) in the real light, you would need to be ready to throw everything you know in the garbage and be open to new ideas. The choice is yours.

To make a long story short, if you view things through the simple eyes of a child and process them with the advanced computer you have up there otherwise known as a brain, then, for the most part, you will arrive at the same conclusions we have. You might even become better than us.

Last thoughts

Stress kills for it causes the wrong hormones to spike and these hormones in turn subject your body to higher levels of inflammation.  Combine that with the wrong foods, and you have a time bomb in the makings.   Take time out to enjoy the simple things in life, watch less TV and read more.   And avoid the following foods or foods that contain the following items

Hydrogenated oils, Carrageenan, Artificial colours, silica, and polyunsaturated fats, and Titanium Dioxide., this is a great website that enables you to identify which brand manufactures supplements with little or no fillers.

Polarisation & dangerous ingredients in your organic food

dangerous ingredients in your organic food

The best way to separate a man from his money is to keep him in a constant state of agitation.  When the masses are agitated, you can pass a plethora of terrible laws for their focus is on the created distraction. The entire world is beating upon on Trump, so he will be used to distract the masses on a Global scale. This informs us that something big will occur or is already in the works.  While everyone is focusing on Trump, no one is paying attention to the fact that between Cancer and Cardiovascular diseases over one million Americans lose their life. Or that the war on food is going as planned; 30% of the world’s population is now overweight, and we are not just talking about 3-5 pounds.  More Americans die from Cancer and Heart disease than from all the wars America has fought in the last 50 years.  On a global scale, about 7.6 million people die from cancer. No one is paying attention to the deadly created epidemic of type II diabetes. Look at any label from the 1950’s and 1960’s and compare them to those of similar products of today and you will see the massive change that has taken place.

Organic food manufacturers get away with murder by adding Carrageenan a known inflammatory agent that is used by drug manufacturers to test the efficacy of anti-inflammatory drugs.  Carrageenan is marketed under the guise of making yoghurts and creams smoother. If dairy products tasted and looked great without this toxic substance before, why have the manufacturers decided that now is the time to make our yoghurts even smoother? The same ploy is used for all the other gums that are added to many dairy products. Why do we need any of this junk in the food?  Yoghurt should have milk, culture and maybe some salt; that’s it.

If they can put this junk into organic food without anyone making a big fuss, then the top players are succeeding in their quest; the quest was and has always been to control your perception.  Between face crack, TV and bad food, the masses stand almost no chance of being able to decipher reality from the illusory. For most news is reduced to sound bites or tweets and when asked for a source, they simply state I saw it on TV, or I read a tweet, etc

Americans favour Coffee over Financial Freedom

Americans favour Coffee over Financial Freedom

The dream – road to Financial Freedom: Towards the end of last year, we published an article titled  Americans favour coffee to stock market investing where we demonstrated that an overwhelming majority drink coffee as opposed to investing in the stock market’ 61% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis as opposed to the 48% that invest in the market. On an annual basis, Americans spend about $1200 on coffee. If they put this money into the market and allowed compound interest to do its magic, it could grow into a nice tidy sum over a period of 20 years.

The latest data provides even more attention-grabbing data. Starbucks is one of the most popular places to get a cup of Java from, even though (in our opinion) it does not come close to ranking as the best place to have a cup of coffee.  The picture below illustrates just how much people love their daily coffee.

Individuals are more interested in loading their prepaid Starbucks cards with money as opposed to contributing to their 401K plans. This is a clear illustration of how people today are more concerned with how they look or what image they portray as opposed to building a sustainable nest egg. S&P Global Market Intelligence states that Starbucks has $1.2 billion in unspent funds; these are funds that customers have added to their prepaid cards.  In 2014, the same customers added $614, Million, so the jump to $1.2 billion is actually stunning. This is more than the total deposits some banks take in for the year.  In the same period, the average contribution to a 401K increased by a measly 4.1%.

From a psychological perspective, it reveals that the majority have still not embraced the markets. According to, a significant portion of the population states that they don’t have enough money to invest in stocks. Based on the chart below, 53% don’t have enough money to purchase stocks, and 21% don’t know enough about stocks; this does not bode well for the current generation. However, these chaps seem to have no qualms about purchasing an overpriced cup of coffee that they could easily make at home.

Negative rates

We have spoken at length on topic of financial freedom and as we have noted previously the small miserable rate hike the Fed initiated is not the beginning of a new trend but a desperate effort on its part to convince the masses that this economic recovery is real. Any person with a grain of common sense understands that the only thing driving this economic recovery is hot money; if the supply of hot money is cut, the recovery will end instantly.   This is why nation after nation continues to jump onto the negative rate band waggon and it is just a matter of time before the Fed is forced to join the party. When negative rates hit the US, it will propel corporations into taking, even more, risk.  We suspect share buybacks will surge to levels that might make the current purchases seem sane in comparison.


The Fed’s strategy all along has been to foster an environment that favors speculators and punishes savers, destroys financial freedom and they have succeeded in achieving their objective. The next stage will be to force these savers to speculate, and that is when we can expect this market to enter into the bubble phase. The Fed’s sole purpose since it began interfering with free market forces has been to facilitate boom and bust cycles.  This bull market will only end when the masses finally give into it and in doing so set the stage for a bubble. History is replete with examples of how bull markets end. No bull market has ended without mass participation; the crowd has to turn euphoric before the bull kicks the bucket.

Currency wars detonate

Currency wars detonate

Over the years we have often stated that every that every major bull market will experience at least one back-breaking correction. Usually, the correction culminates with a 50% pullback from the highs. In the case of Gold, this would equate to a pullback to $960.  The precious metal’s sector had a beautiful lope that began in 2003 and ended with a spectacular dash in 2011.  To think that the Gold bull would continue unabated would be, to put it mildly, wishful thinking.  Sadly, many Gold bugs opted for this line of thought, rather than dealing with reality; the reality being that it was time for the entire sector to let out some steam.

Gold bugs have a bad knack for losing contact with reality and embracing the illusory.  When Gold topped out in 2011 and started to correct, they began to recite “the buy on the dip” mantra. When it appeared to have put in a bottom in the middle of 2012, they became Euphoric and started to hum “death to the dollar”. However, this euphoria should have faded when Gold refused to trade to new highs, and instead put in a series of lower highs (look at the chart below).  A series of lower highs, after a very long run, is usually a negative omen.  The Gold bugs were, however, unfazed and continued to sing “Kumbaya”, but alas no one was listening, and the correction gathered steam.

Gold market topping 2015

We are using the ETF, GLD for illustrative purposes; it mimics the price of Gold fairly well.  Note when a market is in a bullish phase, it does not put in a series of lower highs; this is a signal of exhaustion.  This occurred twice over the past ten years; the first incidence lasted from 2008 to 2009 and resulted in gold shedding 30% of its gains. The second time, the topping formation was much wider and gold from high to its current low hashed roughly 43%.   History has a tendency to repeat and the repeat pattern  (on a much broader scale) from 2008-2009, served notice to the astute investor that all was not well, and that it was time to bank some of those profits.  We noticed these signals and the many negative divergences that our indicators were generating and advised our subscribers to close the majority of their precious metal positions in 2011.

From approximately Feb of 2013 to March of 2015, the Gold bugs discovered religion and started to pray for a turnaround.  When you find religion in an area that does not merit it, the result is always calamitous.  The Gold camp was in turmoil, and chaos became the order of the day; how could Gold drop when the Fed was creating money at an insane pace?  Unable to explain these strange phenomena, they opted for the illusory; magical incantations, looking at tea leaves, skull bones, etc., etc.  Based on this strange behaviour, it was obvious that Gold would continue to trend lower; an assessment with which Jim Rogers seemed to concur.

There are still too many mystics in the gold market who think gold is holy so cannot decline. When/if they give up and throw their gold out the window because ‘she lied to me,’ gold will make a firm bottom,” Rogers said.

 To add pain to misery, Gold traded below $1100 briefly, and religion was abandoned, in favour of fear and desperation.   Hopelessness is setting in, for the Gold bugs cannot fathom how against the backdrop of trillions of new dollars being added to the money supply, Gold continues to take a beating.  Embracing the mass mindset is a dangerous affliction, for reason and logic are abandoned in favour of misery and panic. It brings to mind a certain phrase we used recently “welcome to my world said the spider to the fly…… to which the fly responded which one.” What the Gold bugs have failed to understand and come to grip with is that we have two worlds coexisting together, the illusory and the real.  The crowd (Horde) has embraced the imaginary, so the illusory supersedes reality.   The masses believe money is created from trees as opposed to sweat and labour.  This means that the Fed can continue debasing the currency, and the masses will be none the wiser.  They do not want to or refuse to grasp the concept of “Fiat Money” and trying to educate them is an endeavour in futility.  They idiotically and fallaciously assume that the valueless pieces of paper-backed up nothing are just as valuable as Gold.  History is replete with examples clearly illustrating how the masses are forlornly optimally positioned to be used as cannon fodder. The mass mindset refuses to study and learn from the past; secure in their knowledge that the past offers nothing of value, they are doomed to embrace a future which is nothing, but a replay of the past they so candidly repudiate.  While the masses embrace the paradigm of ignorance and bliss, you have the option to differ.

Gold is not going to drop to zero, not in the face of the largest currency war the world has ever witnessed.  Years ago we labelled this war, as the “race to the bottom”.  We stated early as 2003 that nations would be forced to take this path, as they sought to maintain a competitive edge.  Now, the war has taken on an urgency not seen before, as a nation after nation joins the battle.  China decided to embrace this war with open arms finally and stunned the markets by devaluing their currency twice in two days.

The two devaluations come after a run of weak economic data and have raised suspicions that China is embarking on a longer-term slide in the exchange rate. A cheaper yuan will help Chinese exports by making them less expensive on overseas markets. Full Story

More nations are coming to the “devalue or die party”.  Vietnam joined the bandwagon and devalued its currency twice to maintain its competitiveness. Indonesia has been allowing its rupiah to collapse since Jan of 2013.

The psychological outlook:

Gold issued several psychological signals that a top was close at hand in 2011 and that a top was in place in 2012.  The first message came in 2011 when Gold put in a series of new highs; instead of exhibiting signs of caution, the sentiment in the Gold camp was filled with Joy and elation. The 2ndsignal came in 2012 when Gold failed to put in a new high and pulled back strongly after trading past the $1800 ranges; the gold bugs exhibited no signs of distress.

The technical outlook

From a technical perspective; several technical indicators did not confirm the surge to new highs, and the negative divergences these indicators generated were rather large. When we combined this with the psychological developments mentioned above, it was time to take money off the table.  Many sophisticated investors took this route, or like Jim Rogers they opted to hedge themselves against the subsequent decline.

Gold correction

If we zoom in and just examine the period from 2011-2013, one can clearly see the topping formation in progress.  Over a period of one year, Gold continued to put in a series of lower highs. The first zone of support (1820-1850 ranges) was breached around Sept of 2011, and each attempt to trade past it after that failed.  Gold then went on to trade below the second zone of support (1750) and continued to put in lower lows.  In August of 2012 when it looked like Gold might have bottomed, and was ready to mount a strong rally, it didn’t even trade past 1850; the first zone of former support turned into resistance.   After, failing to trade above 1850, it rapidly traded below the second former zone of support, which now had become another zone of strong resistance.  Investors had ample time to bail out from 2011-2012.  We are not talking about getting out at the exact top. Trying to time the exact top is a process best reserved for imbeciles with plenty of time on their hands and a large capacity for pain. Any exit from 1750-1900 would have made for a great exit point.

Going back to the first chart, we see that Gold has violated its long-term uptrend line, and this automatically indicates that the bottoming phase is going to be just as frustrating as the topping phase. In other words, many early bulls will be crushed as every bottom they predicted, continues to be violated.  A bottom will take hold, but it will not be a smooth process.

We could list an overabundance of fundamental data about why Gold should fly. Every Gold analyst and every Gold connoisseur over the past five years has done this continually, and all to no avail.  If you are eager to process this regurgitated information, a simple Google search should yield a plethora of results.  The sentiment readings right now are conducive to market bottoming action; however, the technical outlook indicates that there could be more downside. This downward move will serve to reinforce the imprudent perception that the Gold bull is deceased.  Every bull market undergoes a back-breaking correction, and Gold is no exception.

Levels of support:

We are going to revert back to the chart of GLD.  If Gold is unable to rally and stay above $1180 on a weekly basis, then the next level of support that comes into play is around 100, which correlates to a level of roughly $1000 for Gold bullion. A weekly close below this level should take the price of Gold down to the $960 ranges completing a back-breaking pullback of 50%.  In this age of extremely volatility, there is always a chance that Gold could overshoot this mark.  On the other hand, it could hold steadfast above $1000.  The point is not to fixate on absolute prices; if it’s a good deal jump in and buy, instead of trying to save a penny and losing a pound. The shrewd investor will use this phase to open up new positions, instead of complaining.   The Idiotic investor complains/whines that they would have done things differently given the opportunity. …  Off course the truth being that given the chance they will react in the exact same manner. It’s a real life example of the movie ground hogs day.

This is the advice we offered our subscribers recently.

The drug pushers in the media are giving the news junkies their daily fix; they are catering to the twaddle scenario that the world will end. Step back and reflect on how lucky you are that individuals of such calibre exist; ones that seem to feed and thrive on this rubbish. Every time you run into an idiot be grateful for it’s those idiots who make your life infinitely easier. Most do not see this part of the equation or story; they focus on the false premise that idiots make their lives harder, when, in fact, the opposite is true.  Market Update July 17, 2015

Our trading methodology focuses extensively on mass psychology and technical analysis.  From the mass psychology perspective, Gold is very close to putting in a bottom.  Sentiment investors, contrarian investors and investors who are familiar with the concept of mass psychology should consider taking a closer look at the precious metal’s sector now.  From the Technical analysis perspective, the potential for more downsides is still there.

We have been advising our subscribers to deploy small amounts of money into Gold because we sold close to the top, and so we are using profits to get back in.  If you sold Gold in the 1700-1900 ranges, then it might be prudent to start nibbling at this sector now.  On the other hand, if you were dreaming of better prices when Gold was trading north of 1800, you don’t have to dream anymore.  Incidentally, we did warn our subscribers to close the bulk of their positions in Gold, Silver and their entire Palladium bullion positions in 2011. Just for the record, selling close to the top was not something we were attempting, and attribute that more to lady luck than anything else.


The markets are extremely leveraged today and this leverage does not refer to money only, but emotions such as stupidity, fear, greed, etc.   There is a lot more in terms of useless emotions involved in today’s trading than in yesteryear.   The fixation should not be on trying to spot the exact bottom; looking for the exact bottom is like trying to find a needle in a mound of cow dung; a malicious and stinky process where the odds of success are rather low. If you adored Gold at $1800 or $1600 or even $1200, then you should simply be mad about it now that it is trading well below $1200.  Do not impersonate the horde (mass mindset), whose sole role is to sell when it’s time to buy, and buy when it’s time sell. These people always make the following statement “I wish I bought when the markets were falling apart,” but when that situation finally presents itself, these very same people are the first to head for the exit.

There are some analysts offering haughty targets of $10,000, $15,000 and some are even over $20,000.  While we are at, why not suggest $100,000.  We are sure some analyst will come out and issue such an inane target, as was the case with the lofty target of Dow 30,000 being issued years ago.  This begs the following question. How many generations would have to pass before Gold ever hits those targets? Those guys waiting for the haughty predictions issued on Gold in the 1980’s are still waiting for those high-end targets to be hit.   Why the focus on such high-ceilinged targets when Gold has not even touched the $2000 level.

The targets we issued years ago still stand.   Our first target of 1500-1800 has been hit.  The next stage is for Gold to trade to $2000; once $2,000 is taken the next phase of the true bull will begin. Our high target is in the $5000-$5500 ranges, with a possible overshoot to $6,000.   The focus now should be making sure you are in the market and not jabbering about how high Gold will trade. As the saying goes “you need to be in it to win it” The trend is your friend; everything else is your foe.

Perception Wars: You see what you are directed to see

Perception Wars; You see what you are directed to see

Brainwashing is the name of the game

 Everything you process is based on Perception & perception is based on the data you are feed 

Alter the perception, and you alter the outcome.  How do you even know how you even see the right picture? If all the information that you are being provided with is manipulated, that means the image you are creating with this data is also illusory in nature. This is the tool that Wall Street employs with impunity; they use it all the time to create boom and bust cycles.  One of the Grandmasters of data manipulation and Brainwashing is our lovely Federal Reserve system and not too far behind is the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Perceptions are created via  brainwashing programs that are psychological in nature

Psychological brainwashing starts the moment your child enters the public education system. Once they leave this system its game over for over 90% of the individuals. 10% escaping is acceptable as this 10% cannot bring about any effective change as they do not control the levers of power. In most cases, they never attain very high ranking positions so they exist on the fringe where they might garner some new followers but never enough to bring on any meaningful change. All forms of media have one thing in common if they cater to the masses (school is nothing but one massive brainwashing factory); their goal is to redirect your perceptions so that you see what they want you to see. This is why the media constantly bombards you with the same story over and over again. Repetition is the best way to implant something into unsuspecting minds.

These thoughts are embedded into the psyche and the individual then assumes that their his thoughts, when in fact, they are not.  This is why there is an active effort to get rid of homeschooling; homeschooling promotes free ideas; government schooling kills all forms of free thought. In Germany homeschooling is a crime; imagine that how stupid do people have to be to accept a state that bans parents from schooling their kids.

The perception is changing; the masses are now becoming optimistic thus unless the trend changes we can expect the markets to rally even higher. One other thing to understand is that even though the rally in the markets has been artificially induced, the markets have actually recently issued “a true bullish signal.”.  What is this signal you ask? Well, both the Dow and SPX are trading at new highs. A true bull market is not in session until the old highs have been taken out.  9 out of 10 times when this occurs the market rallies significantly from the breakout point; the breakout point, in this case, is roughly 14200 (the old 2008 high).  Market Update Dec 12, 2013 

The Truth or a lie is not based on reality but based on what you perceive to be reality and that reality is manipulated via brainwashing programs 

Perception is everything and not looks or money. If you can alter the perception, then you can recreate any reality or alternate reality you want. It appears that the breakout to new highs was indeed a bullish signal. This was not an easy call to make given that the markets had risen so much over such a short period.  Now that the Fed has seen how easy it is to recreate reality watch how the level of brainwashing will increase exponentially. People that use common sense will start to feel like aliens in this world, for the majority of the populace will be operating in an alternate reality. You won’t have to watch the TV series the living dead; you will start to run into them everywhere soon. The first place you will notice this is with family and people, who you thought were your friends, etc., etc. Welcome to my World said the spider to the fly, to which the fly responded, which one.
