Physical bullion is a global money that can affect and be affected by geopolitics. There are clear signals, if you are prepared to listen, that provide good rewards if you take action in a timely manner and display patience.
This group will dictate how the next 3 centuries will look. Creating real physical bullion markets to replace the LMBA and Comex, they will soon dictate the price of gold and silver bullion.
Secretly building their gold bullion reserves by tens of thousands of tonnes, all money will eventually flow through their financial infrastructure, mainly led by China. They will soon reset the value of gold and introduce a gold backed currency. The gold investment news from China is decisive.
The last century has been the dominion of the USA.
With the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency, they have established massive global financial entities and control the prices of bullion and commodities.
As its supremacy is waning, the USA is creating ever more desperate financial acts to preserve its power. The maths shows can't avoid financial meltdown and failure.
Europe, the grand prize for both the USA and Russia-China alliance.
The key global financial systems were created in Europe and much of the world's private gold is managed here so any gold investment news stemming from here is central.
With the fragility of the Southern EU states, any failures here will have massive consequences on the global economy.
All of the world's financial system is currently based on fiat paper money.
What this means is that all our currencies are simply created from nothing. They are synthetic and as much of it can be created without limit or restriction - who can't add zeros to a calculator, right?
Prior to 1971 all money was back by physical bullion. You could only create as much currency as you had money (gold and silver) backing it. You can't simply create physical bullion (not with our technology level anyway).
The USA didn't like this restriction, so on 15th August 1971 the link between bullion and currencies was severed.
They could now print as much money as they wanted - let the party times begin!
In the 5000 years of recorded monetary history over 600 fiat currencies have been created.
None have ever survived. Their average time to fail is 40 years. We are now in year 43!
The ever increasing amount of currency in the system will eventually increase at a hyper-inflationary rate and the currency will become worthless and die. Happens every time - no exceptions.
When fiat currency dies, it then always goes back to being physically backed. So the loop goes back to the beginning.
It is therefore critically important to buy physical bullion now whilst you still can. Because it will soon either be unavailable or so expensive you can't afford it.
Gold investment news is incredibly important as it allows you to keep ahead of the masses (you don't want to politely queue to save yourself) and you won't get stressed about events that happen as you will have already positioned yourself appropriately ahead of it.
If you need to understand more about the corrosive action of fiat currencies then learn how and why you should preserve your purchasing power.
