Just like to Wish all my "Friends" a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December 24, 2013

The night before Christmas, how special was this day when you were a kid, you had been checking out all them gifts with your name on, under the Christmas tree. Wondering what is in the wrapping? You would pick it up, shake it when no one was around, and it did not make any noise.

They were good memories, now we watch our kids do the same things we once did. We just enjoy that moment, as we recall our own childhood memories. Christmas is all about family, friends and our loved ones, the gifts have no real meaning, but our token of appreciation seeing that smile on their face as they open up your gift.

There is so much going on in the world, now it is time to just close your mind to all that is going on, and enjoy this special time of year. The world will still be in the same shape; if you just excuse yourself for 48 hours. All the headaches, problems will still be there. We all need to start enjoying the moment, with our loved ones.

I been guilty of doing this, l suppose most have. We do not allow ourselves to understand the true meaning of what Christmas has to offer. The saddest thing l can recall on Christmas day, where retail stores that were open, why l would ask?

Then you take into consideration the greed factor of "OPEC" knowing that this is the busiest time of year for travelers, so what do they do? They increased the price of fuel, really how sad is that? Is this not taking advantage of  everyday people. This is marketing with a black eye, to take advantage of people who need to travel. What they should have done is lower the price of gas, as a token of appreciate for raping you at the pumps during the rest of the year.

Going to save that for another article. Not worth talking about it.

Hope you all make the best of the holidays and make it a special one with your loved ones Merry Christmas and very Prosperous New Year.... 

Special Collection of Christmas songs!
Hope you, and your family have a great Christmas!!

All the Best,

Could Gold be on a Perfect and Predictable Storm?

December 18, 2013

The key to the performance of gold is in the last ten years; there has not been a gold mine that is producing gold the way it was created back in 1971, as in South Africa's 47.5 million ounces of gold was discovered. Now fast forward the same country to 2011, it only produced 8 million ounces of gold.

There will be a global shortest of gold discoveries, making the yellow metal a hot asset. Due to Western Central Bank Manipulation, they have created what some experts call, the perfect storm for gold's comeback. Just like gold did back in the 70's, went from $35 an ounce to $850 an ounce.

The supply and demand will always control the actual value of any asset, in this case, gold can not be reproduced, allocated with the highest degree of engineering in this field. Taking into consideration that Asia has been very active in purchasing as much gold as they can obtain at a ridicules low price. Means that the supply has depleted at an alarming rate.

Now taking a view back to October 11th, gold trading was shut down for 10 seconds according to the CME, because someone sold 2 million ounces of gold at one time. Who does this? Who sells nearly two and a half percent of annual gold production in a single minute? The gold valued at over $2.5 billion could not have been sold by a small trader, and certainly not the smart money, institutional investors know you don't exit a large trade like this.

Investing can become overly complicated on a strategy that will provide you as the investor, the best possible ROI on you investment. That should be your only concern; gold has this ability for the investors who see the real potential of the yellow metal.  Gold could be the perfect storm for the wise investor. The information you will review will illustrate it's rewarding results. Just really a matter of time!

Tyler Durden on Zero Hedge shares with you information that has merit, logical financial rewards for us to just be advised on our investment directions. He shares reasons on why this "will" happen, enjoy his article, along with the video he shares. The full article, read more. Is the Perfect Storm coming for Gold?

Is China Getting a Free Ride from Central Banks?

December 13, 2013

Gold is and has been for thousands of years the best insurance against inflation, or deflation. I would much rather own gold than invest in government bonds, high-yield bonds or equities. With the uncertainty of whether deflation was to pass, it would only stimulate governments to print more money globally.

China is taking full advantage and has been buying as much gold as it can get its hands on. At last count gold imports from Hong Kong year to date was just over 1,113 tons, doubling from the previous year at this exact time last year.

Many experts are starting to blame those Western central banks, especially the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (ECB). Many analysts are pointing fingers that central bankers are desperate to salvage their fiat currencies and eliminate competition as "monetary authorities."

The domino effect is gold prices have deflated and putting China on a winning streak for buying gold at basement bargain prices. Many analysts also believe that central banks are manipulating the price of gold as a trade off with China, for not unloading U.S. Treasury Securities and other government debt.

It will only be a matter of time before the Chinese government's expanding the role of the Renminbi within international markets. This will certainly bring an end to the U.S. dollar being the choice as the currency to be used by international markets for goods.

In an article written by Vronsky via Gold Eagle, he illustrates this example. If gold price ran parallel with China's total foreign reserves, then the yellow metal today should be approximate $5,162 per ounce. Today's severely discounted gold price is a blessing for those who know financial history and who are patient, as in character with China's historical culture. Read the Full Article

33 Years Ago, December 8th, John Lennon!

December 8, 2013

Well today, exactly 33 years ago we lost an icon, in John Lennon as I carefully listen to imagine as I write this article. I recall the exact place, time, and what l was even wearing that day. When I heard it on the television news cast, tears came to my eye's.

I was never really a "Beatles Fan," but l enjoyed their music, but John was the man in that band I admired, for his writing abilities, how he planted words, and painted a story, which had meaning, and most of all; reasons for him sharing his lyrics, with us the audience.

Sometimes life comes to a sudden end, without any real logical sense, behind the reasons for why it happened. We just never know our time, words will not bring John back and it just provides all of us, who knew, or followed John, with sweet memories that will never die, along with a smile.

All I recall was the world was in shock, over the tragic, unforeseen circumstances.  Took a matter of seconds to send the whole world into shock till this day, 33 years later, we still show our grief to a legend, that made us all, dream about what a peaceful world would be like, with No wars, imagine!

John and Yoko Ono held  a strong belief in their political views on the "Vietnam War," that was going on at the time. John and Yoko; where at their closes sharing their feelings that meant so much to each other. The true meaning of giving back at a level, very few ever think about doing. John and Yoko dedicated their beliefs, to a meaningful way of saving lives.

I have two close friends that were born on this day December 8th, so l get to understand life and death. I did call one of them and wished them a happy birthday. So if John was alive he would end this article with words along these's lines. Enjoy each, and every breath you take, and the moments you have to enjoy them.

33 Years Ago, December 8th, John Lennon!
Not many would reply, to their teachers
with this answer!!
Yoko and John outside the Dakota,
their home
The complete family
John, Yoko and Julian!

Please leave your thoughts, on what John Lennon might have meant to you growing up, and has his lost reminded you of many of his quotes, he shared with us all? Dedicate this article to the late John Lennon, Yoko and their son Julian imagine.

All the Best,
