Silver Prices Bounce Higher After Futures Manipulated 7{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} Lower In Minute


by Mark O’Byrne, GoldCore:
– Silver prices ‘flash crash’ before rebound
– Silver hammered 7{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} lower in less than minute in Asian trading
– Silver fell from $16 to $14.82, before recovering to $15.89
– Silver plunge blamed on another ‘trading error’
– Gold similar ‘flash crash’ last week and similar recovery
– Hallmarks of market manipulation as $450 million worth of silver futures sold in minute
– Trading ‘errors’ always push gold and silver lower. Why never higher?
– ‘Flash crashes’ increasingly frequent in precious metals, yet rarely happen in stocks and bonds
– Rapid recovery from frequent raids bodes well for precious metals
– Silver coins and bars accumulated on dips by ‘stackers’

A Tale of Two Gold Markets


by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
In the early morning hours of Monday, June 26, gold fell about 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, from $1,254 per ounce to $1,242 per ounce, in a matter of seconds.

And that the equivalent of 1.8 million ounces of gold were sold at once. The 1.8 million ounce amount is equivalent to about 59 metric tons of gold. That’s about 2{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the entire gold mining production of the world for a full year. No one sells that amount of physical gold.

Besides, mining output is almost 100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} pre-sold these days, meaning that if you wanted to buy that much gold directly from a mine, you couldn’t do it, because it’s already committed to fulfill existing contracts.

Forget about getting gold elsewhere too.

PEDOGATE: American Heroes To The Rescue — Craig Sawyer

by SGT, SGT Report:
Many of us have hoped for a long time that some well-trained special forces military white knights might come along and ban together to target the bad guys, especially the Satanic elite bad guys who target children.

Well, I’m happy to report that we may have gotten our wish. Former Navy SEAL and trained Federal investigator Craig “Sawman” Sawyer has decided to dedicate his life to exposing, and with any luck bringing to justice, those who prey on children. Sawyer has started the group Vets 4 Child Rescue. Please visit the site and DONATE to help us in this fight here:

Preserving Sanctity In Dark Times


from Jesse’s Café Américain:
“Somebody, after all, had to make a start.”

Sophie Scholl

I hope to update the charts on Thursday, Friday at the latest. For now, here is some other knowledge.

Some say that most of the time everyone wants to be great, because they have a natural desire for acceptance, recognition, and praise. Perhaps this is so. And alas, some wish to be great in order to set themselves apart from the rest of humanity with which they not only feel no kinship, but despise.

Nepali Laborers Risk Their Lives For A Better Future


by Michael Demas, The Daily Bell:
To strive in the face of adversity is the mantle of Nepali tradition. The country has a historically tumultuous government that has dissolved and transformed many times, either due to in-fighting, public pressure, or most infamously, the massacre of its royal family by its own prince.

The current state of government affairs cannot be described without highlighting corruption, especially bribery. Combine this with recent devastating earthquakes, seasonally torrential weather that damages infrastructure, and a radically varied geography, and one has an idea of the issues that face this developing nation. It is no wonder why so many laborers have decided to work overseas despite dangerous conditions.

Families across the nation are working towards their own personal reconstruction effort since the 2015 earthquakes. The government provides subsidies for home construction made with the proper reinforcements to mitigate structural damage. However, large portions of raw materials and manpower have to be provided by the homeowner.

CNN’s Primetime Shows Get Fewer Viewers Than Decade-Old Re-Runs of Yogi Bear


by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars:
After a series of embarrassments and scandals, CNN is in full blown crisis mode, with the network now attracting fewer viewers for its primetime shows than multi-decade old re-runs of Yogi Bear.

Aside from its ongoing feud with President Trump, CNN was rocked by multiple video releases by James O’Keefe last week, including one featuring a producer who called Americans “stupid as shit” and other showing Van Jones admitting that the Trump-Russia collusion story was “just a big nothing burger”.

But things got even worse this week when the network was on the receiving end of a huge backlash as a result of its intimidation campaign against the individual allegedly responsible for creating the Trump-wrestling meme.

CNN’s Ratings Collapse As Primetime Shows Draw Less Viewers Than Re-Runs Of “Yogi Bear”


from ZeroHedge:
A series of fake news articles (see here, here and here), black mail of anonymous Reddit users who had the audacity to poke fun at them and a couple of undercover videos from Project Veritas revealing CNN producers admitting their own news is “mostly bullshit,” seems to be taking a toll on CNN’s ratings.

As The Federalist notes in the table below, for the week of June 26th – July 2nd, CNN’s primetime shows (Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon) managed to draw about 6{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} fewer viewers than multi-decade old re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” which air in the same time slots on Nick-At-Nite.

Rethinking the Fed: More Tightening than Priced In? Next Financial Crisis Coming Up?


by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:
Time and time again, the Fed sows seeds of the next financial crisis in actions it takes to mitigate the previous financial crisis that it caused.

Have we reached that point yet?

The Guardian reports Central Banks Raise Alarm Over New Crash After Steep Rise in Lending.

Soaring stock markets, which have become detached from underlying values, were another sign that unjustified exuberance had replaced last year’s overly pessimistic reaction to political events such as the US election and the UK’s Brexit vote, BIS cautioned in its annual report published on Sunday.
