from SilverDoctors:

It’s no secret that Russia has been stacking the shiny phyzz for years, and here’s a glimpse showing exactly how they stack…

Article originally sourced via English Russia

Photos from main gold storage of Central Bank of Russia. Almost 1800 tons of gold is stored here. This is the main storage of gold in Russia. This makes Russia to be number six in the world by gold storage.

However ten years ago Russia had only 3% share of the total world gold storage.

Today Russia’s gold is 17% of world’s gold.

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest ROSE BY A FAIR 795 contracts from 194,214 RISING TO 195,009 DESPITE YESTERDAY’S 14 CENT FALL IN SILVER PRICING.  WE HAD NO COMEX LIQUIDATION BUT WITHOUT A DOUBT WE WITNESSED ANOTHER FAILED MAJOR BANK SHORT- COVERING OPERATION. NOT ONLY THAT , WE WERE AGAIN NOTIFIED THAT WE HAD ANOTHER GOOD SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONGS TRANSFERRING THEIR CONTRACTS TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE: A CONSIDERABLE 1436 EFP’S FOR MARCH (AND ZERO FOR OTHER MONTHS) AND THUS TOTAL ISSUANCE OF 1436 CONTRACTS. HOWEVER THE MOVEMENT ACROSS TO LONDON IS NOT AS SEVERE AS IN GOLD AS THERE SEEMS TO BE A MAJOR PLAYER TAKING ON THE BANKS AT THE COMEX. STILL, WITH THE TRANSFER OF 1436 CONTRACTS, WHAT THE CME IS STATING IS THAT THERE IS NO SILVER (OR GOLD) TO BE DELIVERED UPON AT THE COMEX AS THEY MUST EXPORT THEIR OBLIGATION TO LONDON. YESTERDAY WITNESSED  EFP’S FOR SILVER ISSUED. ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THERE CAN BE A DELAY OF 24 HRS IN THE ISSUING OF EFP’S. I BELIEVE THAT WE MUST HAVE HAD SOME MAJOR BANKER SHORT COVERING AGAIN TODAY.

ACCUMULATION FOR EFP’S/SILVER/ STARTING FROM FIRST DAY NOTICE/FOR MONTH OF JANUARY:

20,707 CONTRACTS (FOR 8 TRADING DAYS TOTAL 20,707 CONTRACTS OR 103.500 MILLION OZ: AVERAGE PER DAY: 2588 CONTRACTS OR 12.940 MILLION OZ/DAY)

RESULT: A GOOD SIZED GAIN IN OI COMEX DESPITE THE 14 CENT FALL IN SILVER PRICE WHICH USUALLY INDICATES ANOTHER FAILED BANKER SHORT-COVERING. WE ALSO HAD A FAIR SIZED  EFP ISSUANCE OF 1436 CONTRACTS WHICH EXITED OUT OF THE SILVER COMEX AND TRANSFERRED THEIR OI TO LONDON AS FORWARDS.  FROM THE CME DATA 1436 EFP’S WERE ISSUED FOR TODAY (FOR MARCH EFP’S AND NONE FOR ALL OTHER MONTHS) FOR A DELIVERABLE FORWARD CONTRACT OVER IN LONDON WITH A FIAT BONUS. WE REALLY GAINED 2231 OI CONTRACTS i.e. 1436 open interest contracts headed for London (EFP’s) TOGETHER WITH A INCREASE OF 795  OI COMEX CONTRACTS. AND ALL OF THIS HAPPENED WITH THE FALL IN PRICE OF SILVER BY 14 CENTS AND A CLOSING PRICE OF $16.94 WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING. YET WE STILL HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF SILVER STANDING AT THE COMEX.

In ounces AT THE COMEX, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 0.9775 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 140% of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT JANUARY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 30 NOTICE(S) FOR 150,000 OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest ROSE BY A FAIR SIZED 3383 CONTRACTS UP TO 555,455 DESPITE THE  FALL IN PRICE OF GOLD WITH YESTERDAY’S TRADING ($6.30). IN ANOTHER HUGE DEVELOPMENT, WE RECEIVED THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GOLD EFP’S ISSUED YESTERDAY FOR TODAY AND IT TOTALED A GOOD SIZED  9593 CONTRACTS OF WHICH THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY SAW 9593 CONTRACTS AND APRIL SAW THE ISSUANCE OF 0 CONTRACTS.  The new OI for the gold complex rests at 555,455.DEMAND FOR GOLD INTENSIFIES GREATLY AS WE CONTINUE TO WITNESS A HUGE NUMBER OF EFP TRANSFERS TOGETHER WITH THE MASSIVE INCREASE IN GOLD COMEX OI  TOGETHER WITH  THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF GOLD OUNCES STANDING FOR JANUARY. EVEN THOUGH THE BANKERS ISSUED THESE MONSTROUS EFPS, THE OBLIGATION STILL RESTS WITH THE BANKERS TO SUPPLY METAL BUT IT TRANSFERS THE RISK TO A LONDON BANKER OBLIGATION AND NOT A NEW YORK COMEX OBLIGATION. LONGS RECEIVE A FIAT BONUS TOGETHER WITH A LONG LONDON FORWARD. THUS, BY THESE ACTIONS, THE BANKERS AT THE COMEX HAVE JUST STATED THAT THEY HAVE NO APPRECIABLE METAL!! THIS IS A MASSIVE FRAUD: THEY CANNOT SUPPLY ANY METAL TO OUR COMEX LONGS BUT THEY ARE QUITE WILLING TO SUPPLY MASSIVE NON BACKED GOLD (AND SILVER) PAPER KNOWING THAT THEY HAVE NO METAL TO SATISFY OUR LONGS. LONDON IS NOW SEVERELY BACKWARD IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER (BIG RISE IN BOTH GOFO AND SIFO) AND WE ARE WITNESSING DELAYS IN ACTUAL DELIVERIES. IN ESSENCE WE HAVE ANOTHER GOOD GAIN OF 12,976 OI CONTRACTS: 3383 OI CONTRACTS INCREASED AT THE COMEX AND A GOOD SIZED9593 OI CONTRACTS WHICH NAVIGATED OVER TO LONDON.

YESTERDAY, WE HAD 5660 EFP’S ISSUED.

ACCUMULATION OF EFP’S/ GOLD(EXCHANGE FOR PHYSICAL) FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY STARTING WITH FIRST DAY NOTICE: 72,858 CONTRACTS OR 7.286 MILLION OZ OR 226.26 TONNES (8 TRADING DAYS AND THUS AVERAGING: 9,107 EFP CONTRACTS PER TRADING DAY OR 910,700 OZ/DAY)

Result: A FAIR SIZED INCREASE IN OI DESPITE THE  FALL IN PRICE IN GOLD TRADING ON YESTERDAY ($6.30). WE HAD ANOTHER FAIR SIZED NUMBER OF COMEX LONG TRANSFERRING TO LONDON THROUGH THE EFP ROUTE: 9593. THERE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT SEEM TO BE MUCH PHYSICAL GOLD AT THE COMEX AND YET WE ALSO OBSERVED A HUGE DELIVERY MONTH FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. I GUESS IT EXPLAINS THE HUGE ISSUANCE OF EFP’S…THERE IS HARDLY ANY GOLD PRESENT AT THE GOLD COMEX FOR DELIVERY PURPOSES. IF YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE 9593 EFPCONTRACTS ISSUED, WE HAD A NET GAIN IN OPEN INTEREST OF 12,976 contracts:

9593 CONTRACTS MOVE TO LONDON AND  3383 CONTRACTS INCREASED AT THE COMEX. (in tonnes, the gain in total oi equates to 40.36 TONNES)

we had: 1 notice(s) filed upon for 100 oz of gold.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

With respect to our two criminal funds, the GLD and the SLV:

With gold up again, we had another strange withdrawal today from the GLD: 2.95 tonnes

Inventory rests tonight: 831.91 tonnes.

SLV/ 

NO CHANGES IN SILVER INVENTORY AT THE SLV/

INVENTORY RESTS AT 318.423 MILLION OZ/

end

First, here is an outline of what will be discussed tonight:

1. Today, we had the open interest in silver ROSE BY A CONSIDERABLE 795 contracts from 194,214 UP TO 195,009 (AND now A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE NEW COMEX RE
CORD SET ON FRIDAY/APRIL 21/2017 AT 234,787) WITH THE FALL IN PRICE OF SILVER TO THE TUNE OF 14 CENTS   YESTERDAY.  WE HAD WITHOUT A DOUBT ANOTHER MAJOR SHORT COVERING FROM OUR BANKERS AS THEY HAVE CAPITULATED. NOT ONLY THAT BUT OUR BANKERS USED THEIR EMERGENCY PROCEDURE TO ISSUE ANOTHER 1436 PRIVATE EFP’S FOR MARCH (WE DO NOT GET A LOOK AT THESE CONTRACTS AS IT IS PRIVATE BUT THE CFTC DOES AUDIT THEM).  EFP’S GIVE OUR COMEX LONGS A FIAT BONUS PLUS A DELIVERABLE PRODUCT OVER IN LONDON. WE HAD NO COMEX SILVER COMEX LIQUIDATION. BUT, IF WE TAKE THE GOOD OI GAIN AT THE COMEX OF 795 CONTRACTS TO THE 1436 OITRANSFERRED TO LONDON THROUGH EFP’S WE OBTAIN A GAIN OF 2231 OPEN INTEREST CONTRACTS DESPITE THE MAJOR BANKER SHORT COVERING. WE STILL HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES THAT ARE STANDING FOR METAL IN JANUARY (SEE BELOW). THE NET GAIN TODAY IN OZ: 11.15 MILLION OZ!!!

RESULT: A GOOD SIZED INCREASE IN SILVER OI AT THE COMEX WITH THE FALL OF 14 CENTS IN PRICE (WITH RESPECT TO YESTERDAY’S TRADING). BUT WE ALSO HAD ANOTHER 1436 EFP’S ISSUEDTRANSFERRING COMEX LONGS OVER TO LONDON. TOGETHER WITH THE GOOD  SIZED AMOUNT OF SILVER OUNCES STANDING FOR JANUARY, DEMAND FOR PHYSICAL SILVER INTENSIFIES AS WE WITNESS MAJOR BANK SHORT COVERING ACCOMPANIED BY INCREASES IN GOFO AND SIFO RATES INDICATING SCARCITY.

POPULATION CONTROL ALERT: Ibuprofen Is A Tool Of Agenda 21!

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

A study published Monday detailed the effects of the drug Ibuprofen on male fertility. The drug was shown to cause a hormonal condition in young men that is linked to infertility.

According to CNNa study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that when taking ibuprofen in doses commonly used by athletes, a small sample of young men developed a hormonal condition that typically begins, if at all, during middle age. This condition is linked to reduced fertility, which some say makes ibuprofen perfect for Agenda 21’s population control.

Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple says he’s been vindicated. “I feel vindicated today! A couple months back I put out a video about how ibuprofen could be a tool for Agenda 21,” said Joseph.

Joseph’s take on Agenda 21 is accurate. According to the United Nations website, Agenda 21 is meant to be “sustainable development.” But of course, it’s dictated by the elites, and one goal is to concentrate the population into megacities. People crammed together in tight quarters are easier to control and manipulate than those living more rurally.

“We’ve seen a lot of issues with this class of drugs known as NSAIDs,” says Joseph. “Sold under brands such as Advil or Motrin to help reduce swelling; to help reduce pain in people, you know, an over the counter drug. And the Consumer Health Product Association, a trade group that represents manufacturers of over the counter medications,  says that [they] ‘support and encourage continued research and promotes ongoing consumer education to help safe use of over the counter medicines.’ And they say the safety of active ingredients in these products has been well documented and supported for decades by scientific studies and real-world use.”

But what about all of those who die using NSAIDs? Is that the “real-world use” that is being referred to? NSAIDs were actually responsible for more deaths in 2012 than opioid overdoses, according to numbers gathered on Practical Pain Management’s website.

SWEET: German TV Show for Kids Shows Migrant Adult Dating Underage Teen Girl

0

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

What a lovely program for children!

German TV, funded by taxpayers, recently aired a show for children where an adult migrant man was dating a young German teen.

The migrant said he was around the same age as the girl but later admitted to being 19 and could be much older.

He looks like he’s closer to 30.

Breitbart.com reported:

An “underage” migrant, who was presented as being in a romantic relationship with an underage girl in a controversial German children’s channel television programme, has admitted he is actually an adult.

The documentary Malvina, Diaa and Love was broadcast in November on the publicly-funded German television channel Kikawhich is directed at children aged three to 13, and has been slammed by many as “propaganda” as it favourably presents a largely one-sided relationship between a 16-year-old German girl and an adult Syrian asylum seeker.

The Syrian named Diaa was said to be around the same age as 16-year-old Malvina but later admitted he is actually 19 year.

Google’s New ‘Fact-Check Feature’ Targets Conservative Sites

by Pamela Geller, Freedom Outpost:

Further proof of what I have been documenting for the past year: the social media giants’ war on freedom and truth.

The election of President Trump was the casus belli for the left’s war on free speech. Stunned by his victory, they could not reconcile that he won.

The media, cultural and academic elites vigorously campaigned against Trump. Movies, music, media elites waged a daily war against him in the run-up to the election.

It shocked them.

They blamed websites like mine and the apparatus that transmits our news — social media.

Social media giants are run by uniformly left-wing corporate media managers — and so the purge began and it continues.

Google has scrubbed its search results of sites and posts critical of jihad and sharia.

Fifteen years of work, forty thousand plus posts of mine, just disappeared from Google search.

Social media giants are run by uniformly left-wing corporate managers.

And are waging a very real war against those with whom they disagree.

They are blowing up our First Amendment rights and government action is long overdue.

GOOGLE’S NEW FACT-CHECK FEATURE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY TARGETS CONSERVATIVE SITES

Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results.

No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment.

By Daily Caller, January 9, 2018:

And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made.

When searching for a media outlet that leans right, like The Daily Caller (TheDC), Google gives users details on the sidebar, including what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a section titled “Reviewed Claims.”

Vox, and other left-wing outlets and blogs like Gizmodo, are not given the same fact-check treatment. When searching their names, a “Topics they write about” section appears, but there are no “Reviewed Claims.”
In fact, a review of mainstream outlets, as well as other outlets associated with liberal and conservative audiences, shows that only conservative sites feature the highly misleading, subjective analysis. Several conservative-leaning outlets like TheDC are “vetted,” while equally partisan sites like Vox, ThinkProgress, Slate, The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Salon, Vice and Mother Jones are spared.

Occupy Democrats is apparently the only popular content provider from that end of the political spectrum with a fact-checking section.

Big name publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times are even given a column showcasing all of the awards they have earned over the years.

A Planned Genocide In the Making: The Final Solution for White Males

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

From Hollywood to college campuses, the war on whites continues unabated. The rhetoric against white, conservative males grows stronger by the day. This article contains word-for-word proof that a war against white males is under way.

A Quick Look at South Africa May Provide a Glimpse of our Future

Many white South Africans have warned me about the open war on whites in South Africa and how this is beginning to happen in America.

“The President of South Africa made (March of 2017) a shocking suggestion, which left many white landowners fearing that they may face a race war in the near future. In a speech, Jacob Zuma announced that he wanted the government to begin confiscating white owned lands, before redistributing them to black South Africans.

Political and racial tensions in post-apartheid South Africa have become so great that the minority white population is now at risk of being murdered on a mass scale, says civil defense expert Simon Roche. Dr. Greg Stanton, founder of human rights group Genocide Watch who accurately predicted the Rwandan genocide in 1994, warned that the increased killings of white farmers in South Africa are being carried out for the sole purpose of extermination and seem to be directed by government elements, Roche noted. In other words, our[South African] government is at least tacitly complicit in these astronomical crime rates,” he said. “State-sponsored genocide, one arm’s length removed.”

If you do not think that this could not happen in America, you are not paying attention to George Soros’ Black Lives Matter, the creation of Obama’s civilian army and prejudicial handling of immigration requests from people who are white. White immigrants are generally not accepeted by our government and there are no liberal, Deep-State orientated Obama-loving judges standing by to rule against this racism. But the racism goes much deeper. Consider what is happening in South Africa and then realize, the same kinds of racist dialogue, which can often be a prelude to genocide, are appearing in America. 

More Specific South African Warnings to Americans About What Is Coming

For 3 years, South African residents have been warning me that what is happening in South Africa is coming here. Here is an excerpt of an email I received on this topic from a resident of South Africa.

Hello Dave,

I listen to your show frequently as you talk about the dictatorial policies of governments that embrace Agenda 21. I wanted you to know how bad it is here in South Africa. Our government and our political parties are more authoritarian than they are in China or were in Stalinist Russia. 

…Our third largest political party is openly Marxist and the national song is “Kill the farmer”. This is what our current president sings at his political rallies. Our seconds largest party is socialist.

Here is another email I received from South Africa on their Agenda 21 land policies and wealth redistribution policies.

Dear Dave,

Thanks for the work that you are doing to help save the average person. Could you pay a little more attention to the genocide against white people that is beginning to happen in South Africa?

We have had thousands of our farmers murdered and raped and thousands of commercial farms have been given to “previously disadvantaged people” and 98% of those farms no longer produce anything. Increasingly our food is controlled by government friendly corporations that are not white owned. 

Our roads are in a state of disrepair and 1.3 million people pay 85% of all taxes of which they receive no benefit.

In response to this email, I would point out that America has only 92 million full-time working employees. We presently have about 102 million working age Americans who do not work full-time. Fifty million are on food stamps, that is one in six people in this country. Who is paying the taxes for these former Obama phone recipients who garner about $75,000 per year in government benefits while being supported on working people’s tax dollars? On this point, we have already surpassed South Africa.

An Oprah Winfrey Presidency Is As Dangerous As a Hillary Clinton Presidency

Oprah is now being touted as the possible 2020 candidate for the Democratic Party. Forgetting for a moment that she  absolutely does not have any political experience, she has shown hertrue colors. She was an ally of David Rockefeller and his depopulation policies towards the people of Africa. She is a present ally of Bill and Melinda Gates along with many other globalists. In this following video, Alex Jones makes it clear that Oprah embraces policies of genocide when it is convenient. She is a Ted Turner wannabe who wishes to reduce the population of the planet by 90%.

The US Has Devolved into a Police State

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Yesterday I posted at this URL — https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/01/09/democracy-america-oxymoron/ — a news report and two videos of a white female school teacher being removed and brutalized by a black police officer from a public meeting of school teachers with the school board while the school teacher was engaged according to the rules in normal conversation with a school board member.

The school board is comprised of both genders and both races. (Yes, I know that today we have more than two genders and there are more than two races.) Obviously, the school teacher was removed at the order of the school board or some member of it.

The school teacher is surprised to be interrupted in her conversation with a school board member by a policeman. She attempts to continue the conversation and is ordered to leave the room by the black cop. She complies with the black cop’s illegal order. As she leaves the room, the black cop knocks her down, handcuffs her, calls backup, and sends her to jail.

This is an accurate picture of America today. The woman did nothing, broke no law, no school board rule, no meeting rule, complied with the black cop and was still brutalized and arrested. The black cop as he brutalized her kept saying “stop resisting.” It is perfectly clear from the video that there is no resistance only assault by the black cop in what is clearly a criminal action against a member of the public by the police.

Will the black cop get away with it. Of course.

What was it all about.

The meeting was about the school board’s approval of a raise in salary for a school board member equal to the annual pay of school teachers, while the teachers themselves received not one cent.

The white female teacher assaulted by the black cop wanted to know why resources needed in the classroom, where class size had increased by about one third, were instead going to school board members who really did not do anything except collect high salaries.

This is a fair and honest question, but it was one the school board did not want to hear. So the school board had the uncle Tom black cop brutalize and arrest the white female school teacher.

As I said, this is America today.

The same thing is going on everywhere.

Consider, for example, America’s colleges and universities. According to a number of reports, 75 percent of budgets go to administration. When I attended Georgia Tech there was a president and a dean of students. Today universities have enormous administrative staffs. They have presidents, chancellors, vice chancellors, provosts, vice provosts, assistant vice provosts, deans, associate deans, and assistant deans for affirmative action, politically correct speech and demeanor, women’s rights, minority rights, homosexuals’ rights, and transgender rights. America’s universities are overrun with administrators. Education hardly exists.

Full time faculties are shrinking. In place of established professors students are taught by adjuncts who are paid a few thousand dollars to teach a course.

As Ron Unz has shown, Harvard University, for example, has endowment income sufficient to allow every Harvard student to attend tuition free, but continues to charge a monsterous price. It is not the education that Harvard students pay for. It is the network connection, not the education, that is valuable.

There are many things to be learned from this school board meeting atrocity. First, it is not just white cops who assault black people. Cops, whether black or white or rainbow in color assault the general public, white, black, brown, the young, the elderly, cripples in wheel chairs, the family dog. The cops, irrespective of race brutalize the public. There is no race safety. The police are a brutal force whose only function is to suppress all dissent against the bosses. All lives matter, not just black lives. The police actually kill more white people than they kill black people.

The police are the enforcers of the thievery practiced by the One Percent. The main function of the police in America is to suppress the citizens. That is what the black uncle Tom cop is doing at the school board meeting.

One of America’s greatest disadvantages is “law and order conservatives.” These peoples’ paranoid fears of crime have enabled the creation of the American Police State. Moreover, these people are completely illogical. The police seldom, if ever, prevent a criminal act. The function of the police is to investigate the act and to pin it on someone, innocent or guilty. If an American is so scared by crime, he/she can use the carry laws to arm themselves.

ANOTHER study confirms the detrimental effects of water fluoridation on the IQs of children

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

Another study has added to the growing body of evidence that links the fluoride found in water with lowered intelligence quotients (IQ) in children.

A study, which was published last year, confirmed the dangers that water fluoridation has when it is consumed by children, particularly on their IQ. Not only that, fluoridated water was also shown to adversely affect the cognitive ability of babies when this is consumed by their mothers during pregnancy.

A total of 299 mother-child pairs in Mexico were examined as part of the study. Researchers looked into the link between fluoride levels in the urine of pregnant mothers and the IQ test results of their children. The results of the study revealed that toddlers born from mothers with higher fluoride levels often had lower tests compared to those whose mothers had lower fluoride levels.

Morteza Bashash, one of the authors of the study, explained: “In this study, higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring.”

In 2012, a study on the impact of fluoride “on the neurological development of children” was published by Harvard School of Public Health. While the study was mostly disregarded by legacy media (e.g. print media, radio, television, etc.) it gained traction when it was shared on social media in the following years and it spread awareness about the dangers of fluoridated water and how to avoid it. (Related: More science confirms fluoride exposure damages brains and lowers IQs in newborns.)

The chemical sodium fluoride, commonly known as fluoride, has been classified as a neurotoxin, along with arsenic, lead, and mercury. However, according to an article that appeared in the Waking Times, the chemical is still being added to America’s water supply “for what some claim protects the health of our teeth.”

Fluoride-related health risks

To the unaware, the results may be shocking, but this isn’t anything new to anyone who has read up on the dangers of fluoride — at least 50 studies have examined the connection between fluoride and decreased IQ in humans. In addition to this, there are at least 45 studies pointing out a  “lessened cognitive ability in animals” due to fluoride exposure. While evidence like this has persuaded a handful of health authorities worldwide to remove fluoride from public drinking water, it could take more than data from studies to ensure that politicians are held accountable for their involvement in the propagation of this health risk.

In other studies, researchers have determined the link between fluoride and diseases such as arthritis, cancer, dental fluorosis, diabetes, Down’s syndrome, and osteoporosis. This link is possibly due to fluoride variants such as hydrofluorosilicic acid, “a chemical byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer and aluminum industries.” The article opines that this chemical is probably added to public water not out of concern for public health but to protect industries from lawsuits regarding environmental damage.

Dr. J. William Hirzy, Senior Chemist at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), expressed his disbelief and said, “If this stuff (hydrofluorosilicic acid) gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.”

Tips to minimize fluoride exposure

To avoid the dangers of fluoridated water, follow the tips listed below:

  • Do not drink fluoridated water – On a daily basis, tap water consumption is the main cause of fluoride exposure consumption for individuals who reside in areas that allow the fluoridation of water. Avoid fluoride through these three options:
    • Use water filters
    • Drink spring water
    • Try water distillation

Gold Hits All-Time Highs Priced In Emerging Market Currencies

by Mark O’Byrne, Goldcore:

Gold Hits All-Time Highs Priced In Emerging Market Currencies

– Gold at all time in eight major emerging market currencies
– A stronger performance than seen when priced in USD, EUR or GBP
– As world steps away from US dollar hegemony expect new gold highs in $, € and £
– Gold is a hedge against currency debasement and depreciation of fiat currencies

 

When we talk about the gold price we all too often focus on it priced in US dollars, with some frequent glances to Sterling and Euro as well. This is understandable, after all these are the currencies the majority of readers buy and sell in. The US dollar price is also the one which is most universally quoted.

However this approach ends up giving us a very skewed perspective of the gold market and price behaviour.It is arguably an old fashioned approach in a very globalised world. The relationship between gold and the US dollar is one which is rooted in the Bretton Woods agreement, something which was scrapped in 1971.

Today the gold price and the gold market is international, with far more interest in physical gold being paid by the emerging markets. One just has to look at the gold buying policies of Russia and China to see this.

In the long term, gold has performed very well in dollar, sterling, euro and all fiat currencies with gains of between 7% and 12% per annum over a 15 year period. Gains in emerging market currencies have been even greater.

Very often a change in the price of gold is a reflection in the change of the value of the currency in which you are choosing the quote the price. This has certainly be the case in the last year or so when it comes to gold bullion priced in the US dollar.

In 2017, gold’s dollar price was far more reflective of the dominant world currency’s perceived value than it was of other global events such as inflation, the threat of nuclear war etc.

So when the price of gold changes it is how it is perceived in relation to that currency and (more importantly) how that currency is behaving against other currencies.

Gold is a currency and clearly one of the most important safe havens and alternatives to the greenback. We see this with other currencies such as the Yen and the euro. So whilst gold might be a bet against the value of the US dollar it is also a safe haven against global risks and a hedge against currency devaluation.

This is of particular interest when we consider the above chart. Eight emerging market currencies and currently experiencing all time high gold prices. This gives a perspective of the gold market through a lens that we don’t usually see from a Western perspective. This perspective shows a totally different gold market – one which is at all time highs.

Is this a gold market that is perhaps reflecting the true risk in the global system?

China Threatens to Quit Buying US Treasuries, Cites “Trade Tensions”

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

A financial shot before the bow of the White House.

China – which holds $1.19 trillion of US Treasury securities as part of its $3.1 trillion pile of foreign exchange reserves, and thus is a crucial factor in demand for US government debt – is having second thoughts about this deal.

Officials reviewing China’s foreign-exchange holdings and discussing investment strategies have recommended slowing or even halting purchases of Treasuries, “people familiar with the matter” told Bloomberg.

It’s the message that counts, a financial shot before the bow of the White House. The people “who asked not to be named as they’re not allowed to discuss the matter publicly” told Bloomberg that officials undertaking this investment review think US government bonds are becoming less attractive than other assets, and that trade tensions with the US would offer a reason to curtail or stop buying US Treasuries.

Trade tensions? What do they have to do with Treasuries? The leakers wouldn’t say.

For now, it remains unclear if the these investment strategies have been adopted. The recommendations also don’t concern daily purchases and sales of Treasuries. Bloomberg:

The officials recommended that China closely watch factors such as the outlook for supply of US government debt, along with political developments including trade disputes between the world’s two biggest economies, when deciding whether to cut some Treasury holdings, the people said.

If implemented – if it’s not just a verbal and purposefully leaked warning shot in direction of the White House – this change in China’s investment strategies could come at a very inconvenient time.

With the tax cuts in place, the US government will have to borrow even more to make ends meet, and thus will have to douse the market with additional supply of Treasury debt that will need to find enthusiastic buyers, just as the Fed has stepped away from the table and has started unwinding its holdings of Treasury debt.

With a sense of premonition, prices of the 10-year US Treasury note fell this morning, and the yield, which moves in the opposite direction of price, jumped to 2.59%.

The 10-year Treasury yield had been stubbornly low for most of 2017, even as short-term yields have risen sharply in response to the Fed’s rate hikes, sparking fears of a “flat” or even “inverted yield curve.” An inverted yield curve is a phenomenon where short-term yields are higher than long-term yields. It has been tightly associated in the past with economic and financial problems, including last time, when this phenomenon was followed by the Financial Crisis.

But in recent weeks, yields between 3-year and 7-year maturities have been rising more steeply than short-term yields, a sign that the yield curve was steepening in the mid-range. More recently, even the 10-year Treasury sold off and the yield started rising. Yesterday, it closed at 2.55%, the highest since March 14 last year.

Today’s well-orchestrated leak by Chinese officials just added a little extra oomph to that trajectory, with the 10-year Treasury selling off a tiny bit, pushing the yield to 2.59% this morning.
