Quote Of The Week

"Gold as money is incompatible with unlimited majority rule and scoffs at the idea that money is just 'credit'. It negates any rationale, however farfetched, for the existence of central banks. It precludes 'fractional reserve banking' or any other method of debasing its utility as a medium of exchange. Last and most important, it SEVERELY curbs the power of government to interfere in the lives of its citizens. No assembly of national “leaders” brought together to “modernize” a financial system will ever agree to its use as money. But let one nation anywhere implement it, and the lid blows off."

William A. Buckler, Publisher:  The Privateer

Book Review- Five Thumbs Up for Steve Greenhut's Plunder!

 

China's surprise Christmas weekend increase in interest rates took down markets in Asia and Europe today, but the real impact may be with SHIBOR.

The Shanghai lending rate between banks surged in advance and since the rate hike. But what's the impact of the SHIBOR spike?

From Waverly Advisors:

In the very near term this squeeze on "hot money" puts pressure on equities trading on the domestic exchanges, making short-term volatility more likely.

If you've been following this chart, Saturday's move may not have come as a surprise.
