    Of the European Gold Reserves

    2014-11-19T162651Z_1613139848_GM1EABK010E01_RTRMADP_3_SWITZERLAND-GOLD-POLL

    SS: what’s going on in the world of precious metals ?? well for one thing apparently the dutch central bank was able to do what the germans could not do and that is repatriate a large amount of gold from the usa. did that really happen ?? the dutch got 122 tons of gold repatriated from the usa ?? that sounds pretty amazing. how did they do that and the germans couldn’t ??

    SS: i do not know all the answers to the questions. for some reason i confused amsterdam with brussels (the guys who been buying all the federal reserve tbonds this year) and thought maybe they made a deal with the usa for buying tbonds. well one thing that is for sure is that the governments of countries consider gold to have a very high value and strong demand that they are repatriating it, buying it, and hoarding it in their countries.

    SS: notice what deutches bank says ?? “a yes vote wont raise price of gold” … that is what we are interested in this vote is the price of precious metals ?? i doubt it since it is common knowledge about the prices of precious metals .. there is some reason all these countries are suddenly interested in their gold reserves.. which maybe they probably should be.

    Will the US give the Dutch their gold back? Friday, 28 Nov 2014 “The question of why Germany can’t get its gold back is perhaps the biggest mystery in the financial world today,” he told CNBC via email. “I think the Netherlands (and some Swiss voters) are entirely correct in wanting to make sure that their gold is someplace where their own representatives can count it.” Switzerland is holding an important referendum on its gold holdings this weekend, with its citizens set to decide whether the Swiss National Bank (SNB) should refrain from selling any more of its gold and instead boost its gold holdings from 7 to 20 percent.

    Dutch move 122 tons of gold out of US  Friday Nov 21, 2014 AMSTERDAM (AP) ” The Dutch Central Bank says it has recently shipped 122.5 tons of gold worth around 4 billion euros ($5 billion) from safekeeping in New York back to its headquarters in Amsterdam. In a statement Friday morning the bank said that its 612.5-ton national gold reserve is now divided 31 percent in Amsterdam, 31 percent in New York, 20 percent in Ottawa, Canada and 18 percent in London.

    ‘Yes’ vote in Swiss referendum not certain to lift gold prices-Deutsche Bank Mon Nov 17 (Reuters) – A vote in favour of boosting Switzerland’s gold holdings at a Nov. 30 referendum won’t necessarily lift bullion prices, Deutsche Bank said in a note, adding there was a “considerable” chance the motion would pass. The Swiss National Bank could spread out its gold buying, take transactions off market, or use derivatives to cushion gold prices from the impact of a ‘yes’ vote, Deutsche said. The “Save our Swiss gold” proposal, spearheaded by the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), would force the SNB to hold at least 20 percent of its assets in gold, make it repatriate gold held overseas and commit never to sell bullion.

    Why Putin Is Buying So Much Gold Russian President Vladimir Putin is developing a taste for gold. William Rhind, CEO of the World Gold Trust Services said, with all of its income from selling oil, Russia is diversifying its reserves by buying massive amounts of gold. Of all the central banks that make their reserve actions public, Russia has been the “largest, most active” gold accumulator, he explained. Still, Rhind said, the “elephant in the room” is how much gold China is buying, as Beijing does not publish these figures.

    Germany Still Wants Gold Back – Repatriation Campaign Continues June 24, 2014 – More than 18 months ago, on January 16, 2013 Germany’s central bank, the Bundesbank, announced that it will repatriate to Germany all 374 tonnes it had stored with the Banque de France in Paris, as well as 300 tonnes held in Manhattan by the New York Federal Reserve, by 2020.Despite a lag of 18 months, the Bundesbank, as the Federal Bank of Germany is often called, has only managed to bring home a tiny 37 tonnes of gold. A paltry 5 tonnes of that came from the U.S., the rest from Paris. The US Fed holds 45% or roughly $635 billion of the total 3,396 tonnes of gold Germany have in reserve, the world’s second largest gold reserves.This has prompted, not surprisingly, renewed questions whether Germany’s gold still exists in those Manhattan vaults or if it has been melted down, leased or even sold.

    Twenty Swiss francs gold coins, known as Vrenelis, are pictured at Jolliet numismatic shop in Geneva November 19, 2014. Support among Swiss voters for a referendum proposal that would force a huge increase in the central bank’s gold reserves has slipped to 38 percent percent, an opinion poll showed on Wednesday, falling short of the majority backing it needs to become law. Under the “Save our Swiss gold” proposal, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) would be banned from selling any of its gold reserves and would have hold at least 20 percent of its assets in the metal, compared with 7.8 percent last month.

          SS: i am doing a gold and silver update. some people have mistakenly called the gold and silver a bear market. this is not the truth. gold and silver is a manipulated depressed market. there is a big difference between these two things and the implications are also much different. and because it is manipulated means that people who are making predictions based upon common sense are wrong on the whim of the banks manipulated the prices.  don’t put your credibility on the line in a heavily manipulated market.

          SS: regarding the economy and the federal reserve tapering.. i asked the question will we taper or not taper.. well the answer is … drum roll … BOTH. its a trick. yes the federal reserve is tapering because they have about 4 trillion of junk on their books. BUT .. we now have learned that Belgium is now suddenly buying bunches and bunches of our junk. Belgium is the capital of the EU and they are picking up the slack by the federal reserve taper. how i am interpreting this new data is that with Belgium buying junk we might be able to stave the collapse for another 2 or 3 years .. Belgium might be able to buy 3 to 5 trillion in junk. only thing this really means is that we have a little more time to prepare which is maybe a good thing. see part two of my gold and silver update here .

The giraffe, named Marius, was shot in the head and then cut apart in view of children, according to a video of the incident released by the Denmark-based production company Localize. The zoo’s plans had sparked an outcry from animal rights activists.

                  Of the Cyprus Debt Problems

                  SS: i have to talk about this cyprus deal some what i been thinking about it.. i think this cyprus thing is a test bed. there are several divisions of problems that the cyprus people were unaware. the main divisions of problems is that cyprus is in debt, they owe money. the cyprus people are responsible for the debt and that is why the bank deposits were confiscated from them. when the cyprus governemnt attempted to not pass the bailout that was the wrong answer to the divisions of problems of them owing money. that is why a bank has failed and people with over 100k in that bank will not get at least 80% of their money back and probably wont get any money back.

                  SS: the only citizens of cyprus who did not pay to the debt this time are the people who did not have money in those two banks. because cyprus did not take the bailout then one bank failed and all money over 100k was confiscated to pay the debt. the second bank is now paying something like 40% of their deposits to pay the debt. i know its not the all the people of cyprus fault they had to pay the debt. however i think it is ridiculous to think that the citizens of other eu countries like germany should pay cyprus debt to bail out cyprus banks..

                  SS: now everyone probably think this could never happen to them or in the usa. well that is not what ben bernanke said. he said yes it is possible that we could see bank holidays and debt collections in the usa if it becomes contagious. well since cyprus was a test bed then we know whats going to happen the next bank that starts talking about they don’t have the money. if you are like britian who only has tungstein filled gold then you poor anyways. is debt and that is why the banks are closed and everyone is having to pay the debt.

                  SS: we have already seen it happen in the usa with some brokerage type business that went down.. last year one these brokerages could not pay their debt and when they collapsed everyone who had their money in that brokerage lost their money. the reason why they could not pay the depositors money back was because they used their depositors money in other investments and so they lost every ones money. this is legal in usa company can use depositors money as collateral or invest how they want. if the company goes down then everyone loses their money to pay the debt. who actually has the money after paying the debt.

                  SS: UPDATE 05-16-2013: i have added this screenshot of a cyrpus bank account that has been bailed-in that has been going around the internet.. this is what it looks like to be bailed in.. when this comes to the usa this is what a bailed in account will look like. cyprus was a test bed. its not gonna matter who you are or how much money you got. you might have millions but when this bail-ins hit you will have a whole lot less millions. its not going to be safe in an investment account either because if they lose your money then you lose your money. it is the road to slavery imo. when we have our money that we worked for taken from us then we have worked as slaves. way i see it is that i have paid taxes my entire life so i believe that the government debt is not my debt.

A plan to seize up to 10 percent of people’s savings in the small mediterranean island country of Cyprus unsettled markets Monday and raised questions about whether households’ trust in banks would be permanently shaken. A weekend agreement between Cyprus and its European partners called for the government to raid bank accounts as part of a euro 15.8 billion (US$ 20.4 billion) financial bailout, the first time in the eurozone’s crisis that the prospect of seizing individuals’ savings has been raised.
