The Gold Chronicles: July 16 , 2015 Interview with Jim Rickards

Jim Rickards, Gold Chronicles July 16th, 2015:

*Comments on co-Keynote with Former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke
*Comments on recent experience and invitation to Pentagon hosted financial wargames
*As predicted, there has been no Grexit
*Bank holidays is a standard way of dealing with financial crisis, people should consider preparing ahead of time
*Greece and Cyprus have been dry runs for how to deal with crisis on a much larger scale
*The China market crash is on-going, this has just begun and will continue for a time
*The extraordinary effort put forth by the Chinese government to halt the crash will not work over the long term
*The greater issue here is whether this turns into a social problem within China
*The most recent Pentagon wargame was specifically focused on China
*Other countries are now building their own systems which circumvent things like SWIFT so that they are able to function without it
*This wargame was more focused than the last, and the Pentagon is taking financial warfare very seriously
*Why a gold market corner is unlikely
*What large futures positions in gold by major institutions probably means
*Movement of unallocated gold in banks to allocated gold in private storage
*People are taking gold out of banks because they are losing confidence in the banking system and putting it into private storage
*Fourth quarter is traditionally a seasonally good time for gold
*The only reason the Fed will raise rates is if inflation remains weak, period, full stop
*The dollar price of gold continues to go down, this is probably a good entry point
*The Fed always follows the market, it doesn’t lead the market. If Yellen raises rates in a weak economy it would be a disaster
*Fed rate increases are always conditional on data, and we are not getting to any of the levels Yellen has specified in the past
*Bernanke describes the international monetary system as “incoherent”, and he is involved with the IMF and Sec. Treasury on China voting rights with the IMF
*Expectation is that China will be included in the SDR in the fall of 2015
*Bernanke says that everything the Fed had done since 2008 during his tenure had been an experiment

The Gold Chronicles: June 17 , 2015 Interview with Jim Rickards

Jim Rickards, Gold Chronicles june 17th, 2015

*FOMC Meeting Analysis – No rate increase in 2015
*Dangerously low liquidity in bond market
*Back in the 80’s-90’s liquidity in the bond market was a given, virtually any amount could get filled – this is no longer the case
*Today large orders in the bond markets can take days or weeks to fill
*Lack of liquidity combined with High Frequency Trading (HFT) and selling volume is an environment where flash crashes are likely
*Warnings are coming from BIS, IMF, Federal Reserve governors regarding lack of liquidity
*When crashes occur there is always collateral damage – there are no circuit breakers in the bond markets so if there is an extreme panic we may see market closures
*Panics can spill over into other markets – we could see a bond market crash with a rising gold price
*Contagion and spillovers to other markets are typical behavior in a crisis
*Examples of hard assets: Land, Art, Physical Gold Fund
*State Backed hacking of US Government Employee Files
*Compromise of employee files does represent a national security threat
*Any portfolio reliant on all digital related assets is vulnerable to being completely wiped out
*South China Sea – China is claiming the entire South China Sea by creating artificial reefs and islands
*The US is bound by treaty and is obligated to act in the event of China war with the Philippines
*IMF SDR’s versus sovereign fiat currency
*Thoughts on gold confiscation happening in USA, EU, and Switzerland
*Why Switzerland is the best jurisdiction in the world to store precious metals
