Is the American financial system really crashing?  And if so, what are the indicators we should be looking for?  ITM Trading’s Chief Marketing Analyst Lynette Zang says we’ve been getting signals of a crash for quite some time now.

The former stockbroker and investment banker says she’s been referencing what she calls “pattern shifts” that have been speeding up since October of 2017.  She notes that “insiders”, heads of corporations like boards of directors and CEOs, have been “running for the exits” financially.

Zang also notes how global Central Banks, “not in this country, and not in Canada, but everywhere else,” are massively accumulating gold.  Why are they doing this?  Why are some of the world’s biggest banks and corporate heads “massively accumulating gold”?  Could it be that the gold hordes will be utilized toward a coordinated backing of those nations’ currencies?

Zang says it only makes financial sense.  “Because gold is a savings based currency,” the chief marketing analyst says.  Zang believes other countries are accumulating gold in record numbers in preparation for the reset of the debt.  If we’re a family, for instance, and we have a financial crisis, we can bail ourselves out of trouble through our savings.  Theoretically, we can throw money at it and get out of that crisis.  That’s one reason savings are so critical to our families’ survival.  But if we have no savings when that next crisis hits, how do we get out it?

Same thing with nations.  And if you’re a huge government like the United States, and you seemingly have no savings, just a bunch of intertwined bureaucracies trying to take the thin margin of profit from one another, what are you going to do when there’s no margin left to loot?  Where’s the money going to come from?  Where as individuals are we going to get our family’s financial security from?  Lynette Zang says that’s when it’s time to start a new financial system.


Zang says that the reason a country should have major amounts of gold in its reserves is because, from a national perspective, gold creates fiscal responsibility.  That’s why all the other countries are buying it up in record numbers.

Now as far as the reset is concerned, it is about resetting the debt.  Zang says that if the financial reset is on a global scale, which she believes it is, because all the countries are in major financial debt, then the countries with the gold are going to be the ones with the savings.  They’re the ones who are going to be able to do the business, because they have savings.  The United States is not one of those countries.  That’s how the wealth is going to be transferred.


That’s how the American dollar has gone.  In the beginning, it was 100% backed by gold.  Then it was 25% backed.  We were taken off of that during the Nixon administration in 1971.  If having gold is a sign of fiscal responsibility, America’s dire financial condition is a sign of our lack of fiscal responsibility.

Zang believes that we who populate the United States will ultimately end up with Venezuela style hyperinflation.  If you don’t know what that means, look it up.  A good majority of the citizens in Venezuela operate from below the poverty line.  Economists say we’re going to suffer a similar fate.  Our standard of living is going to shift dramatically.  Globally on average about 80% of the population ends up in abject poverty.  In Venezuela that number is ninety percent.

Venezuela did a formal reset of their currency to gold on February 9th of this year.  The price of gold went up that day.

When the system crashes it’s not like you’re going to take your gold and silver and bury it in the back yard.   What you want to do is be prepared.  Think about your standard of living, and do what you can do to sustain that.  Food, water, energy, security, community, and silver and gold as barter.  Small denominations to be used for a tank of gas or to go to the grocery store and purchase blueberries.

During a financial crisis like Venezuela has faced, gold or silver may not pay you interest, but it is the safest thing you can do currency wise.  Zang also says you want a certain amount of cash out of the banks, because we’re not going to be given notice when the bank is going to shut down, or we’re not going to be able to get access to the financial system.  The more digital the financial system becomes, the more important cash will become.

Zang refers to 1996 when the National Security Agency white paper on cryptocurrencies came out which referenced cryptos as being outside the system.  “They are private,” she says.  “They’re invisible.”  You can have them in a wallet.  Zang believes this might be stretching the true intentions of the coming financial system, but she can’t be sure.  She wonders whether by telling us cryptocurrencies are outside the system, that they really mean that cryptos are “the system” the globalist controlling Banksters want us to adopt.

Other sources have alluded to the concept that in the U.S. there’s going to be a gold-backed cryptocurrency that will replace the U.S. dollar as our national currency.  In either scenario, it sounds like we’d better practice up on our digital cryptocurrency skills.  And save some gold and silver buried under a tree.  And read up on Venezuela-style hyperinflation and what it’ll take to survive it.

T’is the season to be jolly.  And why not, it’s Christmas time, right?  We can afford to do what we want, take our families where they want to go, and be safe in all that we do.  Right?  For some, maybe.  For those that can afford it.  But the reality this Holiday Season is that most of us can’t.  Most of us are lucky if we can afford to put food on the table to feed our families.  There’s really no celebration for most of us.  It’s egoic.  It’s delusional optimism.

This Holiday Season moods are generally a little bit darker for very good reason.  Families are battling to survive.  Unemployment is at an all time high.  There is very little money trickling down into most folks’ pockets.  People are battling to get their bills paid.  Many of us are failing in health.  Our skin itches, our hearts ache, and our cells are being genetically modified by the chemtrails they spray on us, the GMOs they feed us, and the killer cells they vaccinate us with.

Just the other day I heard one poor, limping, old man, walking on a cane with discolored and swollen ankles, tell the nurse at the doctor’s office, “I think I’m slowly dying.”  And he was right.  We’re all dying slowly.  It’s part of the plan.  It’s called slow kill.  And while they’re doing their dirty deeds on us the central banksters are stealing everything we have, right from under our runny noses.  And it’s not because we’re asleep at the wheel, it’s because we’re being overwhelmed by the system.  And we have to fight back.  It’s literally a matter of life and death.  As Moe of the Three Stooges used to wax poetically, “We got to edumacate ourselves.”  We got to understand who’s fixing the screw to whom, and how.  And why.  And then we got to do something about it.  And the sooner the better, or we’re all going to become genetically modified zombies.  And that means our kids too.

We must understand that it’s all about them having everything, and us having nothing, if that.  We’re easier to control that way, we’re easier to eliminate when we’re sick.  It’s that master-servant thang for the survivors.  They, the central banksters, have all the money and corporations, the banks and the pharmaceutical and chemical companies.  We have sickness.  They also have all the banks, which are our lifeblood, and through which they control us.  Their central banks print up fiat dollars in the billions, ship them off to the other central banks at low interest rates, who in turn mismanage it well enough to divide amongst themselves.  And we foot the bill in the form of debt.  And the battle rages.  And the family suffers.

We battle amongst ourselves for scraps.  We battle for religion.  We battle for race.  We battle for police not to shoot us in the backs.  And where’s all the battling getting us?  It’s getting us shot in the back.  And that’s not really helping our families survive.  We’ve got to be much smarter than that, because if we’re not, our families will not survive into the next holiday season.  The truth is we must wake up, and we must do it fast.

We must understand that the real trench warfare of this battle for life and death is being fought right now in the financial arena.  That’s where the winners and losers in life are decided.  That’s where it’s decided whether our children will live or die, be sick or healthy, have futures in prison or not.  It’s the playground of our handlers.  And it’s critical for all of us to understand how America’s reserve currency system stands up against the realities of our family’s existence.

It’s reasonable to assume, first of all, that the central banksters, along with our government, do not want gold to go into backwardation.  That’s because if people understood what it meant, they’d want to own gold, and not the worthless paper the Fed prints up and calls the dollar.  Remember from our last time that according to James Turk, there are two types of backwardation, money backwardation and commodity backwardation, and they both apply to gold.  Backwardation is a mathematical result that reflects the cost of money as measured by the interest rates of one national currency relative to another.

The U.S. government does whatever it needs to assure that the U.S. dollar remains the world’s reserve currency.  However, presently, market forces appear to be prevailing over the United State’s central bank’s attempts at controlling interest rates.

All national currencies have an interest rate, and so does gold.  It’s called GOFO.  And this is the interest rate at which gold is borrowed or loaned.  The reason gold has an interest rate is because it is money.  The problem was that in 1971, the governments of the world, led by U.S. President Nixon and the Federal Reserve, tried to convince the world otherwise.  They went off the gold standard, confused a lot of people, but never really changed the fact that gold was money.

When one begins to realize that gold is presently in backwardation, and its interest rates are higher than the dollar, he or she will begin to understand why our buying power is going down the tubes along with the dollar.  The interest rates we are dealing with are a direct reflection of the risk of debasement of our national currency.  Since you can’t print too much gold, it cannot be debased like other national currencies.

So how could gold’s interest rate be higher than that of the U.S. dollar?

The answer is it can’t.  Not in a market that goes without government intervention.

“Gold backwardation is an abnormal condition,” Turk says, “but theory and practice are different things. It is extremely rare for gold to be in backwardation, but it does happen when governments intervene in the market process.”  This is where gold is different from other commodities such as oil, soybeans, and pork bellies, all of which are frequently in backwardation.  Gold has an interest rate, where all other commodities like sugar, corn, and lumber do not.  Their “cost of carry”, according to Turk, “to determine their future price is based mainly on warehousing fees that need to be paid for their storage.”

Another reason gold is money is because it is accumulated, where commodities are consumed and disappear.  Gold backwardation is a unique event.  It can’t happen in theory, but it does take place when governmental central bankster intervention loses its desired effect, and market forces overpower the government’s attempt to manipulate them.

Previously, gold backwardation has taken place twice, and both times market forces overpowered government interventions that were bent on manipulating interest rates.  Turk says that gold backwardation does occasionally occur in spite of government intervention “because central banks cannot print physical gold to alleviate demand pressures.”

A shortage in supply indicates that unless demand for gold slackens or the supply increases, the price will go up.  And right now, according to Turk, there is a “strong demand for physical gold” and “a decline in demand at current price levels seems unlikely.”  To contrast this, national currencies, the supply of which can be increased to any quantity by a flip of the printing press switch, physical gold only comes from two sources:

  • New mine production, and
  • Existing aboveground stock

Mine production yields are relatively insignificant.  And above ground stock of gold “grows consistently year after year by 1.8% per annum,” Turk says, which doesn’t come close to satisfying the current global demand.  Thus, the present shortage of gold can only be “relieved from its existing aboveground stock.”  The only way for that to happen is for the gold price to rise high enough “to entice people to exchange their physical metal for dollars.”  Which is what has happened every time gold has gone into backwardation in the past.

It seems safe to say, buy gold, now.  Physical, in pocket, in hand.  It’s stronger than currency.  It’s stronger than dirt.  And it can save your family.


From the Law Offices of Donna Santo, we wish a Merry Christmas to all, and to all a gold night.

To understand finances in any meaningful way – where one might actually be able to help his or her family survive the oncoming financial collapse – one must at least be aware of how central banks play with our purchasing power, and how that relates to interest rates and gold.  To help shed some light on this financial shadow, James Turk, writing for Goldmoney, alerts us to a financial indicator called backwardation. According to Turk, there are two types of backwardation, money backwardation and commodity backwardation, and he iterates that “both apply to gold.”  He explains that backwardation (and something called contango) are “a mathematical result that reflects the cost of money as measured by the interest rates of one (national) currency relative to another.”  Okay, and…uh…what exactly does that have to do with the price of milk in Ventura? Turk goes on to explain that interest rates are set to reflect the risk that the currency might be debased through governmental and central bank policy.  In other words, we, the consumers, who presumably are the “market”, would lose our purchasing power due to central bank manipulations that could thwart “real and accurate price discovery” in the marketplace.  Hmmm, now why would a central bank like our Federal Reserve debase the value of our hard earned dollars to make it so we had less purchasing power? In 2008, Chris Powell of asserted that, “There are no markets anymore, just interventions.”  Which means that the interest rates we deal with today that affect our purchasing power are not so much a reflection of true market conditions, but result from “heavy-handed central bank manipulations” that Turk says thwart “real and accurate price discovery by the market.” But Turk also emphasizes that central banks can only push so far (a limitation he calls “pushing on a string”) before market forces begin to push back.  Central banks in countries such as South Africa or India, whose interest rates tend to remain relatively high as compared to other currencies due to the fact they have a greater risk of being debased by government and central bank mismanagement, might then lower their own interest rates.  This would cause holders of the rupee and rand to sell the currency, which in turn would cause the exchange rate to drop.  This is because the risk of holding those currencies at lower interest rates would be perceived as being too great compared to other less risky investment opportunities for one to place their liquid capital (money). So, it appears there are limits as to how much damage “central bank intervention” can actually cause our families, or what it might be able to accomplish.  And based on what Turk says, this is because the people of the world, who we call the “market”, act as a “guardian that carefully watches central bank tinkering and responds to it by moving their money around to better suit their risk preferences.” But what if we don’t have any money to move around to better suit our risk preferences with?  We’ll try to figure this out.  And more.  As this discussion about family finances, central banks, interest rates, and gold continues…
