Dear Comrades In Golden Arms

Jim Sinclair.JPG

Jim Sinclair of sent us this missive this morning about the attack on currencies that is currently unfolding before our very eyes.

1. Bretton Woods was folded.
2. The floating exchange rate system is about to be folded.
3. By default or design we are going to a one-world currency and a one-world central bank of central banks.
4. For Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece or Spain to break off from the euro would be an expansion of the floating exchange rate system under present conditions.
5. There are presently 3 major currencies. That is the US dollar, the euro and gold.
6. The SDR was an attempt to form a single reserve currency that never took flight.
7. The SDR is an accounting unit made up of an index of currencies much like the USDX.
There is no immunity now from the size of funds seeking to speculate or manipulate markets. This type of money is attacking the debt of the weaker euro states by intention or coincidence. Their success in the Iceland situation was only the first chapter of a multi chapter play.
Central bankers fear that this type of action, most certainly if it is as successful as it was on Iceland, succeeding against the weaker euro states could easily attack the present functional reserve currencies, the US dollar and the euro.
There is an implicit fear that if the ECB refuses to or cannot sustain the debt of Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain the next to fall will be both the US dollar and the euro.
The states of the US are no different, in form or short opportunity, than weak members of the euro. Already major money is short California, New York and Pennsylvania debt. A pounding of state debt is as easy as the pounding of the weaker members of the euro.
Attack of a currency is primarily an attack of the debt representing that currency.

gold bug leaders will never say "sell gold" , they will die from a margin call first. This is why it is much better to listen really wealthy people, like this guy for example:
"Brian Nick, investment strategist, Barclays Wealth (Nick): Now is a good time to short gold, but probably a better time to short gold would have been back in November, when it was $200/oz higher."
"Nick: We certainly don't see it going up in 2010, just because of the significant overvalue relative to where it should be and where its historical average is."
"Crigger: Is gold's long-term average of $700-800/oz a fair value for the metal?

Nick: Yes. In fact, "

Without alternative opinions such as this one we would not have a market, so his comments are most welcome. We would however gently remind you that gold has had detractors over the last decade who have given dire forecasts about its future, but to no avail as gold is up 4 fold in a decade.

The trend is your friend as always.
