Good Day,

I hope this finds you well on this dawn of the coming summer.

This is one of those notes I send out to show, later on down the road, how easy it is to understand what is going on with the dollar and gold and silver, and what you should consider doing about it.

What I mean is this: I was talking to a client last week and she asked should she get some silver at the then current spot price of $47 or maybe wait. I suggested she wait because red hot price runs always cool off and pull back, and since the fundamentals haven’t changed a whit get in after the pull back. That will establish the bottom of our new “trading range.”

Here’s the basic skinny on what is driving this current dip (as of this writing spot gold is $1475, silver is $34.75):

The Comex (the world’s largest physical commodity futures exchange, located in New York City) significantly raised the margin on silver future contracts. Simply means they are forcing out the weak speculators who can’t afford to play and who are selling out their positions.

It’s the basics: a lot of selling forcing commodity index prices down, with the added dynamic of speculative profit taking. I watched this exact scenario countless times in my time.

Nothing else has changed. The dollar is toast, long term, and gold and silver have a long long way to go. Much hay was made of silver index pricing getting close to $50 recently, which is the historical high. That, of course, is a bunch of horse hockey because adjusted for corrosive inflation silver would have to get to $130 to match that 1980 price in real terms. Silver is still way undervalued in current dollars, even at $50.

I don’t debate the outcome of the dollar anymore because that reasonable conversation is over. The strategy now is about moving over some remaining purchasing power out of the dollar and into hard asset money, gold & silver.

So it’s very simple: Get a good deal and buy on the dips. It is inevitable you’ll going to have to get some real money anyway at some point, so do it on the dips and get more for your paper currency.

It’s just that simple.

So, take action now and begin the process. Either way,  you’ll be reading back these words in 4 months and you’ll have the added perspective and understanding that what you are witnessing is the real deal and nothing on earth is going to stop the final collapse of the dollar.

It is your job to simply find out if this is real and true and to then use the same strategy people always use in this kind of economic environment.

And that this approach is prudent, it is safe, and it makes the most amount of sense…

Either that or place all of your hope and faith in Obama, the US Government, and the Federal Reserve to tell you the truth and to look after your best interests.

But you’ll have to deny all of your personal experience, all historic precedent, math, and your own decent common sense to really buy into the official story and explanation.

My mission right now right now is simple:

Read the website, give me a call. We have figured out how to get you to the other side of this paradigm shift intact and with little to no reasonable risk.

I look forward to it…

Best regards,

Aaron Kutchinsky

LOS ANGELES (February 13, 2012) – The nation’s first ever 5 year, full-refund Customer Satisfaction Warranty for gold bullion is now available for the everyday retail gold investor, a warranty which has been designed to protect their gold bullion purchase by eliminating the downside risk of owning gold.

Which means simply that if at the end of a 5 year holding period the investor feels their gold bullion has failed to preserve and protect their wealth they may return the gold to us as a faulty product and receive a full refund of their original purchase price.

No questions asked.

Guardian Gold and Silver, located in Sherman Oaks, Calif., is the only retail precious metal company in the nation offering this kind of unique price safety net for gold bullion. This warranty is based on the exact same risk management protocols currently used by central banks, insurance companies and major financial players to protect their gold bullion positions. As Kutchinsky noted, “The amazing thing is, the kind of gold underwriting we are talking about is in wide use, right now, at the top-tier levels of financial management worldwide – it just hasn’t been made available to you until right now.”

Aaron Kutchinsky, a financial columnist and activist, speaker, and president of Guardian Gold & Silver Precious Metals, says now is the time to invest in the safety of gold in light of his “safe-gold” warranty due to the current systemic economic instability in our country and Europe.

“President Obama’s recent request to raise the debt ceiling by another $1.2 trillion this month is just another indication that Americans should take action and consider gold and other precious metals as an investment to hedge against the inevitable depreciation of the dollar and protect their wealth and assets,” says Kutchinsky. “And the big fat dirty secret in Washington is the next administration will have to double our national debt just to keep the current status quo sustained – regardless of which party holds power.”

This huge and endless debt creation has a dramatic effect upon the US currency. Kutchinsky notes that the dollar buys a fraction of what it could buy 40 years ago, and has depreciated over 30% over the last 11 years alone – and that value is gone forever. But an ounce of gold still buys the same amount of goods and services as it did 100 years ago.

“There is no loss in the purchasing power of gold and that is the difference between real money and a paper currency,” says Kutchinsky.

It is an historical fact that gold is a sound investment because it holds its value regardless of time, place or the current political atmosphere. Kutchinsky points out that the world’s smart money is moving away from the paper financial system with its many risky derivatives and into hard asset commodities with real universal value, such as timberland, agriculture, oil, and gold and silver – which is why all commodities, across the board, are up dramatically over the last 11 years.

Our nation’s national debt now larger than the entire US economy, and an out-of-control debt contagion is spreading in Europe. And with no end in sight to reckless U.S. spending, now is the time to take action and preserve your wealth.

It is believed by most investors and debtors that gold provides maximum safety and diversification in portfolio but how much does this statement hold truth? With the gross uncertainty within the US economy, the value of gold is appreciating with time and the yellow metal is even able to reduce the risk of the investor. When you’re thinking about investing money in gold, you should be aware of the benefits that you may get. If you invest in gold and then due to some issues, you lose your job, you can easily pay off your debts by selling off god rather than seeking the help of professional companies to consolidate debt. Here are some benefits that you may reap on investing in gold.

Though there are options to consolidate debt, you should always look for ways in which you can boost your income level and repay debt. Consider gold investment as one of the best options to make money at any financial state. Save what you earn so that you don’t have to scrimp later on.

The reverend Martin Luther King once said, “The arc of history is long but it bends towards justice.” I believe that is correct, but only if this is true as well: The arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards consciousness.

It has been my goal for the last 5 years to assist in that bend, with a focus towards financial consciousness and awareness. However, even after writing over 100 articles and speaking to thousands of good folks in that time I have come to doubt my effectiveness and impact on the lives of my fellow citizens. I fault myself for being too cautious and measured in my approach, in the hope and trust that the hard evidence will guide and compel by force of logic and probability.

But I am wrong to take that approach now.

There is smoke and fire all about us, and yet no one is really listening or paying attention to the cacophony of warnings sounding regularly and loudly as the system shouts itself hoarse trying to achieve our awareness.

A great zombie slumber has firmly taken hold.

The stresses that have piled upon the US/World financial systems in the last 4 years are truly staggering and cannot be sustained in any kind of reality-based analysis or expectation. This is our cornerstone fact: All roads lead back to the banking system, just as they did in 2008. And this world banking system is saturated to the hilt with debt exposure and highly leveraged speculative derivatives – by the trillions, which cannot possibly be maintenanced or sustained in any rational calculus.

And for you, gentle reader, the truth is the entire financial system on which we depend is not only fundamentally and intrinsically broken, but it is depraved and criminal by culture and intent. I am so sorry to say this, but this is a hard fact and is thoroughly and demonstrably true. Continually and repeatedly we have watched as central and important players are revealed to be engaging in systemic and international corruption in an all-out gamesmanship against you and your fair interests and participation.

Let’s take a look now at the newest and latest burning red flag, warning us all once again as to the true nature of the reality we are living in.  And then let us consider a stunning new development in the ongoing remonetization of gold and how the traditional safe harbor it provides, for all participants, has taken on even broader and deeper dimensions:

The ballooning LIBOR interest rate manipulation scandal (NOTE: this is a key and vital benchmark bank interest rate used as a base and reference point to set a myriad of other monetary rates across many platforms) at Barclays bank, is estimated to be the biggest and most profound international interest rigging conspiracy of all time involving 16 of the world’s largest banks. Coupled with stock market instability, this newest criminal reveal is likely to fuel fresh doubts – as it surely must – about the integrity of the stock market and the larger financial markets as well. “Every time people begin to gain a little confidence, something else comes up,” said Randy Frederick, managing director of active trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. “If it’s not Europe, it’s trouble IPOs, or JPMorgan or Barclays. Something new blows up and people say, ‘I knew it was rigged.’”

Frederick said the string of banking scandals and market instability has led some investors to pull their money out of the markets entirely, contributing to the long-term decline in trading volume. Frederick predicted options trading volume will be down 5 percent to 10 percent for the year.

A string of Wall Street crises, including the 2008 stock market crash, the collapse of the mortgage market, the botched Facebook IPO and the scandals at JPMorgan Chase and Barclays have meant “some very heavy body blows experienced by the public,” Richard Grasso, former chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, told CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday. “It’s been a real tough time for consumers who want to get back into the market.”

Grasso’s comments followed remarks last week by Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro that investors have a “concern about the integrity of the marketplace.” Schapiro told a congressional subcommittee that U.S. markets are threatened with “an unwillingness [on the part of investors] to ever engage in the markets again.”

Investors are unsure “whether they’re getting accurate and honest information” from companies looking to sell stock to the public and uncertain “whether the market structure itself is tilted against the individual investor and in favor of the institutional investor,” Schapiro said.

“There are some people out there feeling like the game is rigged,” said Frederick. “There have been enough events to make them suspicious. I think that’s unfortunate, but also accurate. And the industry needs to continue to make efforts to correct these problems and allay these concerns.”

This is gentle and polite analyses from key establishment figures. Let’s use plain language to say out loud the obvious : The markets are gamed and rigged against the average market participant and the banks running the show are pulling down the entire financial system. This is a matter of systemic and collaborative culture and not the result of a few bad apples.

The bottom line take-away from this reporting is this: The stability/fragility of our markets (and the dollar for that matter) is based on our mutual confidence – and it is only our interdependent confidence in the system, and our belief in an inherently stable and continuous Status Quo, that keeps our financial system moving forward. But confidence has a way of slowly eroding away, and then collapsing suddenly and without apparent and unambiguous forewarning. It is our sensitivity and intelligent awareness to this fact that allows us to prudently safeguard our position by taking a wise footprint outside this stressed and fragile system when appropriate. Such a time is upon us.

The warnings, moreover, are coming in serious multitudes and I expect some kind of Confidence Event at any point moving forward  – especially in the coming August – October 2012 time period. Historically, the Fall is the most vulnerable period of time (1929, 1987, 2008 to mention a few). And while it is true that most people are looking for any kind of confirmation that the status quo is stable, and will only act out of necessity (with necessity only generated by crisis), it is the wise and prudent observer who takes action before confidence shatters and wealth is greatly diminished and/or destroyed. One only has to remember our most recent past, 2008, to be reminded of the truth and reality of that observation.

I am giving this warning to you to get out now. Take a footprint outside of the paper equity system now, at least partially and prudently. Take your cash value out and have it on hand – do not expose your wealth to this total storm of risk and explosive failure. Safeguard your value – seek safety.

Timing and positioning will always be your best tools.

Please give this next section a close read:

Gold has been called many things over the past several years. The shiny yellow metal is seen as a safe-haven to some, but a barbaric lifeless asset by others. In short, gold has trouble receiving a wide range of support as a key player in the global financial system.

John Butler, chief investment officer at Amphora Commodities Alpha Fund in London, explains, “A key reason why gold has not been acting like a safe-haven asset in recent months is because banks are so capital impaired that they are scrambling to reduce their holdings of risky assets in favor of so-called ‘zero-risk-weighted’ assets, against which they needn’t set aside any regulatory capital. As it stands, gold has a 50 percent risk-weighting. But some government bonds, including US Treasuries, German Bunds and British gilts, are zero-risk-weighted.”

However, new developments may slowly change how investors and institutions view the precious metal.  Earlier this month, U.S. federal bank regulators issued a proposed rule-making note regarding capital risk-weightings for various assets. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve asked for comments on a move that would place a “zero-risk-weight” rating on gold bullion held in banking organization’s own vaults, or held in another depository institution’s vaults on an allocated basis.

The move will essentially place gold on the same risk level as cold hard cash, zero percent. Historically, gold has received a risk weighting of 50 percent. If the proposal stands, it appears that banks will have more flexibility and will not be punished for holding gold as a safe-haven, instead of government bonds or fiat currency. This will likely help gold be seen more as a true safe-haven in financial markets and further drive gold bullion demand, which is already at historic highs among central banks.

While I do not expect the proposal to make gold prices skyrocket overnight if approved (and if unopposed goes into effect January, 2013), as gold bullion positions will be hedged, it does aid the recognition that gold is an important financial asset that lacks counterparty and downgrade risk, making it the ideal safe-haven. Some of the world’s largest and most powerful organizations have already realized this. The Bank for International Settlements, which is basically an international central bank looking over other central banks, recently released its latest annual report. It showed that the BIS reported a profit of Special Drawing Rights 758.9 million. However, about 15 percent of that profit came from the sale of physical gold and the repayment of gold loans. Apparently, gold is not as lifeless as some may think.

Bottom Line Price Call: By 2017, which I and others feel will be the peak of a Monetary Confidence Crisis, the general educated consensus predicts $7000 – $10,000 an ounce for gold. Silver has been trading in 50/1 ration to gold over the last few years, give or take, therefore we should see a $140 – $200 per silver ounce as well.

Crazy? Outrageous? You are already living in an era of incredible-as-the-new-normal. These pricings are totally and 100% consistent with the most cautious of actuarial analysis, current rampaging trends, and historical precedent.

This opportunity is the very crux of market and asset timing. Safety and leverage are yours for the taking, and you only have to stop listening to the chattering zombie class for a moment to realize that you are aware of the truth on an intuitive gut level already.

This is the time for me to go on the record, in plain language, and be a reference point for you as events further transpire in the coming months and year ahead.

So there it is, for the record – this is how I see it:

It has been my goal for the last 5 years to assist in that bend, with a focus towards financial consciousness and awareness. However, even after writing over 100 articles and speaking to thousands of good folks in that time I have come to doubt my effectiveness and impact on the lives of my fellow citizens. I fault myself for being too cautious and measured in my approach, in the hope and trust that the hard evidence will guide and compel by force of logic and probability.

But I am wrong to take that approach now.

There is smoke and fire all about us, and yet no one is really listening or paying attention to the cacophony of warnings sounding regularly and loudly as the system shouts itself hoarse trying to achieve our awareness.

A great zombie slumber has firmly taken hold.

The stresses that have piled upon the US/World financial systems in the last 4 years are truly staggering and cannot be sustained in any kind of reality-based analysis or expectation. This is our cornerstone fact: All roads lead back to the banking system, just as they did in 2008. And this world banking system is saturated to the hilt with debt exposure and highly leveraged speculative derivatives – by the trillions, which cannot possibly be maintenanced or sustained in any rational calculus.

And for you, gentle reader, the truth is the entire financial system on which we depend is not only fundamentally and intrinsically broken, but it is depraved and criminal by culture and intent. I am so sorry to say this, but this is a hard fact and is thoroughly and demonstrably true. Continually and repeatedly we have watched as central and important players are revealed to be engaging in systemic and international corruption in an all-out gamesmanship against you and your fair interests and participation.

Let’s take a look now at the newest and latest burning red flag, warning us all once again as to the true nature of the reality we are living in.  And then let us consider a stunning new development in the ongoing remonetization of gold and how the traditional safe harbor it provides, for all participants, has taken on even broader and deeper dimensions:

The ballooning LIBOR interest rate manipulation scandal (NOTE: this is a key and vital benchmark bank interest rate used as a base and reference point to set a myriad of other monetary rates across many platforms) at Barclays bank, is estimated to be the biggest and most profound international interest rigging conspiracy of all time involving 16 of the world’s largest banks. Coupled with stock market instability, this newest criminal reveal is likely to fuel fresh doubts – as it surely must – about the integrity of the stock market and the larger financial markets as well. “Every time people begin to gain a little confidence, something else comes up,” said Randy Frederick, managing director of active trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. “If it’s not Europe, it’s trouble IPOs, or JPMorgan or Barclays. Something new blows up and people say, ‘I knew it was rigged.’”

Frederick said the string of banking scandals and market instability has led some investors to pull their money out of the markets entirely, contributing to the long-term decline in trading volume. Frederick predicted options trading volume will be down 5 percent to 10 percent for the year.

A string of Wall Street crises, including the 2008 stock market crash, the collapse of the mortgage market, the botched Facebook IPO and the scandals at JPMorgan Chase and Barclays have meant “some very heavy body blows experienced by the public,” Richard Grasso, former chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, told CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday. “It’s been a real tough time for consumers who want to get back into the market.”

Grasso’s comments followed remarks last week by Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro that investors have a “concern about the integrity of the marketplace.” Schapiro told a congressional subcommittee that U.S. markets are threatened with “an unwillingness [on the part of investors] to ever engage in the markets again.”

Investors are unsure “whether they’re getting accurate and honest information” from companies looking to sell stock to the public and uncertain “whether the market structure itself is tilted against the individual investor and in favor of the institutional investor,” Schapiro said.

“There are some people out there feeling like the game is rigged,” said Frederick. “There have been enough events to make them suspicious. I think that’s unfortunate, but also accurate. And the industry needs to continue to make efforts to correct these problems and allay these concerns.”

This is gentle and polite analyses from key establishment figures. Let’s use plain language to say out loud the obvious : The markets are gamed and rigged against the average market participant and the banks running the show are pulling down the entire financial system. This is a matter of systemic and collaborative culture and not the result of a few bad apples.

The bottom line take-away from this reporting is this: The stability/fragility of our markets (and the dollar for that matter) is based on our mutual confidence – and it is only our interdependent confidence in the system, and our belief in an inherently stable and continuous Status Quo, that keeps our financial system moving forward. But confidence has a way of slowly eroding away, and then collapsing suddenly and without apparent and unambiguous forewarning. It is our sensitivity and intelligent awareness to this fact that allows us to prudently safeguard our position by taking a wise footprint outside this stressed and fragile system when appropriate. Such a time is upon us.

The warnings, moreover, are coming in serious multitudes and I expect some kind of Confidence Event at any point moving forward  – especially in the coming August – October 2012 time period. Historically, the Fall is the most vulnerable period of time (1929, 1987, 2008 to mention a few). And while it is true that most people are looking for any kind of confirmation that the status quo is stable, and will only act out of necessity (with necessity only generated by crisis), it is the wise and prudent observer who takes action before confidence shatters and wealth is greatly diminished and/or destroyed. One only has to remember our most recent past, 2008, to be reminded of the truth and reality of that observation.

I am giving this warning to you to get out now. Take a footprint outside of the paper equity system now, at least partially and prudently. Take your cash value out and have it on hand – do not expose your wealth to this total storm of risk and explosive failure. Safeguard your value – seek safety.

Timing and positioning will always be your best tools.

Please give this next section a close read:

Gold has been called many things over the past several years. The shiny yellow metal is seen as a safe-haven to some, but a barbaric lifeless asset by others. In short, gold has trouble receiving a wide range of support as a key player in the global financial system.

John Butler, chief investment officer at Amphora Commodities Alpha Fund in London, explains, “A key reason why gold has not been acting like a safe-haven asset in recent months is because banks are so capital impaired that they are scrambling to reduce their holdings of risky assets in favor of so-called ‘zero-risk-weighted’ assets, against which they needn’t set aside any regulatory capital. As it stands, gold has a 50 percent risk-weighting. But some government bonds, including US Treasuries, German Bunds and British gilts, are zero-risk-weighted.”

However, new developments may slowly change how investors and institutions view the precious metal.  Earlier this month, U.S. federal bank regulators issued a proposed rule-making note regarding capital risk-weightings for various assets. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve asked for comments on a move that would place a “zero-risk-weight” rating on gold bullion held in banking organization’s own vaults, or held in another depository institution’s vaults on an allocated basis.

The move will essentially place gold on the same risk level as cold hard cash, zero percent. Historically, gold has received a risk weighting of 50 percent. If the proposal stands, it appears that banks will have more flexibility and will not be punished for holding gold as a safe-haven, instead of government bonds or fiat currency. This will likely help gold be seen more as a true safe-haven in financial markets and further drive gold bullion demand, which is already at historic highs among central banks.

While I do not expect the proposal to make gold prices skyrocket overnight if approved (and if unopposed goes into effect January, 2013), as gold bullion positions will be hedged, it does aid the recognition that gold is an important financial asset that lacks counterparty and downgrade risk, making it the ideal safe-haven. Some of the world’s largest and most powerful organizations have already realized this. The Bank for International Settlements, which is basically an international central bank looking over other central banks, recently released its latest annual report. It showed that the BIS reported a profit of Special Drawing Rights 758.9 million. However, about 15 percent of that profit came from the sale of physical gold and the repayment of gold loans. Apparently, gold is not as lifeless as some may think.

Bottom Line Price Call: By 2017, which I and others feel will be the peak of a Monetary Confidence Crisis, the general educated consensus predicts $7000 – $10,000 an ounce for gold. Silver has been trading in 50/1 ration to gold over the last few years, give or take, therefore we should see a $140 – $200 per silver ounce as well.

Crazy? Outrageous? You are already living in an era of incredible-as-the-new-normal. These pricings are totally and 100% consistent with the most cautious of actuarial analysis, current rampaging trends, and historical precedent.

This opportunity is the very crux of market and asset timing. Safety and leverage are yours for the taking, and you only have to stop listening to the chattering zombie class for a moment to realize that you are aware of the truth on an intuitive gut level already.

This is the time for me to go on the record, in plain language, and be a reference point for you as events further transpire in the coming months and year ahead.

So there it is, for the record – this is how I see it:

Serving strong financial coffee to sleepy zombies everywhere.

The political parties are clashing in the Senate over an impending financial tsunami set to strike the country. The reason of this misdemeanor is student loan debt that has burgeoned to $1 trillion, outpacing credit card debt in the country. Moreover, the interest rate is supposed to get a fresh hike this 1st July 2012 which is about 6.8%. Furthermore, $25,000 is the average debt amount that every student currently owes to different creditors.

Graduates and students are the worst affected people in the country because of these kinds socio-economic upheavals. Therefore, students need to pull up their socks and embark on a strict financial regime to eradicate the debt hazard that will help them to lead a peaceful life devoid of financial obstructions.

Financial regime of a debt free graduate

Students can’t get rid of their debts overnight. In order to become debt free, they have to follow the below mentioned debt management guidelines, which are as follows:

  1. Avoid further qualification – It is an escapist attitude to enroll oneself in higher studies, just because job prospects are low or not up to the mark. Students believe that higher educational qualification will make them more employable. They also think that these qualifications will help them to stay ahead of others in the race. However, students ought to keep this in mind that they are already burdened with debt and opting for higher education will urge them to take out more loans.

Students pursuing higher studies on a part-time basis are eligible to get deferments. Even in this situation, interest rates keep compounding and drive up overall loan amount. This is particularly disastrous for students who are struggling to make regular loan repayments. Popular rule says that college debt of a student must be lower than his annual initial salary.

  1. Enjoy tax relief – Financial planners and tax advisors opine that graduates should quote the student debt interest deduction provision when they file their income tax returns. Students may get a maximum deduction of $2,500 each fiscal year in the interest amount paid on private and federal educational loans. The deduced amount is non-taxable and hence saves money.
  1. Use auto-debit – Auto-debit is a kind monthly debt repayment service that has automated money transfer facility from a checking (savings) account to repay the creditors. This is a smart way to save on postal expenses, minimize check writing hassles and make faster payment. Creditors give out incentives like interest rate reduction (by almost 0.25-0.50%) on the loans to those debtors who use these modes of payment.

Creditors make a list of all the loans taken by a student. Students with multiple loans from a single creditor, can make a combined payment with the help of the list provided by the creditor.

Finally, it’s very important that students are aware of tools to defend themselves in case a creditor tries sue him/her for defaulting on the loans. Student can take advantage of Student Loan Borrower Assistance provided by the National Consumer Law Center. Moreover, Ombudsman of the Department of Education can make loans of a student null and void, if he gets a written request from that student.

In every market an asset valuation falls somewhere within the spectrum of over-valuation and under-valuation. It is our job to determine when the market is wrong and whether an asset is currently over-bought (over valued) or over-sold (under valued), and in which direction is the trend currently headed.

Gold hit the very bottom of under valuation in the year 2000 when is fell all the way to a low of $279 an ounce, with silver trading at a spot index of approximately $5. Now there are many ways to evaluate the valuation metrics for an ounce of gold, but let’s take a quick look at one of the most dependable and traditional gold value yardsticks and compare today’s pricing with a longer view, big picture valuation.

DOW Index Ratio – Buying the DOW

 This traditional valuation tool illustrates just how far out of favor gold fell as an asset class in the year 2000. One can also easily spot the historical trend of greater ups and downs, with trend velocity peaking on each side of the medium average of 4 oz. of gold to buy the DOW (the multiple cost of an ounce of gold being equal to the numerical value of the DOW index). We are clearly headed to an “overshoot” of over-valuation at some point in the future, but what will that number be? Well, presently the DOW has been trading in the 13,000 range for the last 4 years so either gold could gold that high or higher or the DOW could come down to 6000-8000 range. Either way, gold has a way to go in this valuation and will no doubt over-shoot the medium (the higher the peak, the lower the valley – see historical trend in graphic) down to a range of ½ oz – 1/10 an ounce to “buy the DOW.”

Future Gold Valuation – An Actuarial Analysis

This Actuarial Analysis calculates the full range of probable inflationary outcomes over the next 7 years and assigns a historical probability to those inflationary outcome rates. It is important to remember the historical purchasing power of gold has remained the same for thousands of years and that the relative currency value for an ounce of gold tends to reflect that intrinsic purchasing power over time.

The current official rate of inflation, by government calculation, is approximately 3%. However it is believed that number is highly suspect, not to mention self-serving, and has been independently calculated to be more in the range of 9% currently. If one simply compares the 3rd column (annualized inflation rate) to the 6th column (expected value of gold) we’ll get a good idea of the expected inflationary impact on the price of gold.

The final number of $6558 is the weighted and averaged price of gold per ounce, in today’s dollars, given all of the possible outcomes vis-à-vis probable inflationary outcomes in the next 7 years.  This result is consistent with industry-standard actuarial analysis and calculation and this study is based on widely-available historical data.

Silver Pricing Ratio

Over the long arc of history silver has been valued at a 1/15 to 1/30 ratio to gold, ounce for ounce, with the average tending towards a 1/25 to 1/30 range. As of the date of this article, silver is now under-valued at a 1/55 ratio.

However, we are in an entirely different market relationship with silver than at any time in history. In the last 35 years about 7000 unique market applications have been developed for silver and it is now ubiquitous within our industrial / commercial world, and in most cases simply cannot be recovered from its application (the amounts being simply too small in each individual use to make the recovery economically feasible – picture the small amount used in your cell phone for instance). And as a result we’ve seen the supply stock of above-ground silver bullion fall from an estimated 12 billion ounces in 1900 down to approximately 1 billion today, with demand increasing dramatically (just think of all those portable electronic devices being used world wide right now).

This has created true and classic “market squeeze” of ever-increasing demand and a falling silver supply. That makes silver a real universal and irreplaceable commodity of the first order and creates an immense pricing support and a relentless upward pressure on the future valuation of silver.

Given just the historical gold ratio valuation for silver, if gold reaches a value of $6500 (an increase of 375% from $1732) we should see an increase in silver to $260 an ounce, which would be a 1/25 ratio to gold.  That would be in increase of over 800% from its current valuation.

In this scenario we therefore have a 375% (gold) and an 800% (silver) upside market opportunity. What this demonstrates is a clear “leveraged opportunity” to dramatically increase one’s purchasing power and to leverage that advantage into further asset class opportunities in the future.

The next 3 graphics illustrate the engine driving inflationary expectations vis-a-vis pure dynamic debt monetization.

Two of the best on the banking “bailout”. These two are the ONLY people reporting and talking about the banking crisis (yes, we are still in it) and the farce that was and is the banking bailout.

Financial expert, Catherine Austin Fitts, says the sudden turn to gun control in the face of mounting financial problems is no accident. Fitts contends, “Guns protect honest people. It’s a little scary, the timing of this, and I think a little bit obvious. Gun control is a way to take away the financial assets of the honest hard working people.” She goes on to say, “I think there is a real risk here that they’re going to awake the sleeping giant.” Fitts says we are not necessarily going to get a “new” currency, but it is definitely going digital. Fitts warns, “Once we are in a spot where the currency can be entirely digital, then we’re in a new state of very invasive control. . . . One of the reasons I love gold and silver is that it allows me not to be digital” Fitts says the real fight over the fiscal cliff is how we are going to pay for the mess. Fitts thinks, “Politicians have already committed to inflation.” Fitts predicts, “The chances of another financial collapse are very small because every time we come up to a moment where a financial collapse starts to be a real risk, what happens? We get war.”
