    Default ? stocks, bonds, gold all down same time?

    this is not supposed to happen
    when stocks crash, $ is supposed to flow into "safe havens" of bonds, precious metals
    look at the one month chart of them - they all went down together, supposedly not possible

    Martin Armstrong - a guy lots of us on this board follow has this explaination

    My father once put $2000.00 down on a bet saying gold COULD go down in this situation.



    He was proved right.

    smart (and very bold) man

    gold is at 10 year low
    silver 15+ year low
    oil 15+ year low
    so much for investing in tangibles

    however an investment in the amalgam of brass & lead has done very nicely

    If you don't sell, you have not lost.

    Might be a good time to add some silver and/or gold

    I respectfully disagree
    I think things are going to get uglier before they get better
    if you think things are bad in USA take a look at Europe.
    Italy has more deaths than China now, Iran close
    Several UK big REIT's (Real Estate Investment Trusts) closing - going bankrupt
    probably happen here - if your tenant is a mall or restaurant that is closed what is the value of your real estate collateral wise to the bank that holds your mortgage?

    The CME Chicago futures exchange is in crisis mode invoking emergency protocols to auction off the portfolios of Ronin Capital, which is based in Chicago. It has been confirmed that Ronin had clients who could not meet their margin calls. (Remember Trading Places movie? Deja Vu)

    cash is king right now, don't be anxious to part with it

    Think I will stick with the 3 B’s at the moment as far as investing

    I'll still buy PM when I have spare cash ...and keep it....but not before other essentials.....ie….the three B's.

    Agree....something is going on for which no one wants to state publicly for reasons of economic stability....non panic in the markets. Politics.
    Agree...usually PM values and paper money go in opposite directions.

    I do think that someone is planning to take advantage of this virus to bring in a "Cashless Society" as this will facilitate knowing where everyone is located ...where they go...how much they spend an on what. Total Herding...the ultimate herding plan....and control/monitoring ala self quarantine....with monitoring ability.
    Todays newer cars also tell on us as well....so too do our cell phones...credit/debit cards.


    I keep dogging out being herded...but I think it is coming big time....

    Hence I don't think this will be over quickly.

    The problem with power/herding.....in government historically is that they tend to move slowly and also want to keep ultimate power when they get it...not give it up or back to the people. In essence a form of royalty....feudalism....not liberty freedom and or limited government. And often emergencies is the guise behind how it is done.
