A2A with Willem Middelkoop


Just a tremendous A2A earlier today with Willem Middelkoop, author of the worldwide bestseller, "The Big Reset".

Among the topics Willem addresses over this 40-minute call:

  • The current global currency wars and the still-pending eventuality of "The Big Reset"
  • The Chinese yuan and its relationship with the IMF and the IMF's SDR
  • How the US has punished Russia economically and driven it toward a closer relationship with China
  • The ongoing buildout of a new global financial structure dominated by China and the BRICS nations

And much, much more.

I urge you to take the time to listen to this recording in its entirety and then be sure to order the updated version of "The Big Reset" for immediate delivery once it's available next month.

Those maples didn't even last for one day last week.

I only purchase from them now. They are excellent. Always ship same day payment clears. Never post any metal they don't actually have.

EDIT: No worries Zilverstra, well done! It was a gamble, I just hit that send button with nowt to say (as usual!). It's a bit like HFT timing!

Absolute ZERO doubt in my mind

Between the very active and deliberate support of the USDJPY since 2:00 pm AND this story from ZH: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-09-17/vix-etf-near-limit-down-again-...

What have we repeatedly said are the two primary drivers of the HFT machines?

  • VIX

And BOTH are being actively managed.

THE CLEAR CONCLUSION: Knowing that there would be no hike and KNOWING that this would cause a dollar drop, The Fed and other CBs are deliberately and desperately attempting to manage both USDJPY and VIX in order to keep the stock market from dropping off a cliff on the news.

I've always believed that

I've always believed that there's at least a 50/50 chance that Kid Douchamite is written by Sister Christian himself. Those comments only seem to make it even more likely as Koos questions Sister in his article and then, out of the blue, Douchamite appears to defend Sister.

Is former employee of Duetche Bank, and he blocked me on twitter.

I said once a DB always a DB.

Whoever he is...

He's a douchebag of the first order.

Nothing but half-truths and spin in his defense of the system. His primary tools are name-calling and character assassination.
