Gold Holding Up Well Despite US Dollar Strength

Commodities / Gold & Silver Sep 30, 2008 - 10:04 AM GMT

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Commodities Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStrangely, or counter-intuitively, the Dollar has strengthened (vs. the Euro) during a crisis precipitated by a US-derived financial and banking debacle! How could this be the case? Perhaps perceptions have emerged that Europe is in worse shape than the US? Perhaps in spite of everything, the world's investors still need to be in Dollars to access US Treasury paper? Or, perhaps, the Central Banks have coordinated efforts to support the Dollar during this financial panic to avert a Reserve Currency crisis too?


I really don't know what the reason is, although I do think the Dollar's strength is peculiar indeed. If anything, CONFIDENCE in U.S. backed investment paper of just about any grade should be of great concern to investors, institutions, and Central Bankers-- and to compensate for the slide in underlying confidence, gold purchases would seem to be the logical alternative.

Purely from a technical perspective, the enclosed comparison chart shows that DESPITE Dollar stength, gold prices are holding up extremely well, and have created a HUGE POSITIVE DIVERGENCE vis-a-vis the negative action in the Euro. For the time being, the relatively positive action in gold is telling me to remain long spot gold (the GLD) in anticipation of an upside breakout from its high-level consolidation between $920 and $860, which projects next to a test of the July high at $989.25. Only a decline that breaks $862 will compromise the still-positively divergent gold chart pattern.

Declaring Freedom
30 Sep 08, 13:02
Widespread Declaration of Freedom

Thank you for www.marketoracle.co.uk - a superb website.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/6317145/Widespread-Declaration-of-Freedom

Declaration of Freedom

Lovers of Freedom have continuously struggled against the forces of tyrannical control systems for multitudes of centuries in the ever deceptive and animated contest between the spirit of enslavement versus the spirit of liberty. When in the course of world events it becomes clear the world government has become deceitful, destructive, and murderous to a great extent - using any form of falsehood, manipulation of media, or theater as cover for an array of crimes - as well as for the next form of government, it is a matter of self-defense for the people of the world to throw off a corrupt system of globalized government enslavement, and with expediency set and widely announce another special date that will in the future echo worldly celebrations of the cause of liberty. Then the people should subsequently convene in large numbers on that date and also through the public global computing system of the time, for a convention of the people. The result of the open convention is to have authored, selected, and begun the implementation of a more protective system of shared rights, law, governance, and justice for the current and future generations of any nation.

The laws of a Republic should be written clearly in the form of a constitution. However when once trusted political figures individually or as a whole concert of corruption, or the distribution of wealth or establishment system as a whole, betrays the trust of the citizenry by operating outside of the rules and constraints listed in such a constitution, then the citizens of the broken republic should take the stated recommendations of the previous declaration of independence & constitution, along with methods of self defense, back into their own hands. More than responsibility, it is the most sacred duty of the spirit of liberty and justice for all.

By the year 2008, through a consistent stream of offensive actions, including 9-11-2001, the organization widely known as the “United States Government” has proven itself corrupt; and is literally bankrupting the working class of America while instituting fascist rule. It has become evident to multitudes of people of every nation that the current financial system is allied with a corrupt cabal of international profiteering, war-mongering, and so-called “illuminati” or “new world order”, interests. Therefore the “United States Government” has severely turned away from serving its original declared purpose. The “United States Government” has therefore failed and is de facto illegitimate as of the time of the announcement of this declaration, at the start of the new people’s convention. That convention date will formulate out of the people’s concensus.

Consequently, all of its previous authority over the citizenry is thereby removed by this declaration; and all freemasonic governments should be dissolved entirely by the great many world’s people. All existing mob-ridden governments over the individual and the municipalities should be fully dismantled, reinstituted, and rebooted with the next fully transparent, efficient, protective, and accountable system model which the open convention democratically selects. This progressive change of government should be enabled and empowered by the entirety of all national and returning armed forces together with all non-terminated local police and the widespread armed citizenry. This should be entirely voted for in a true 1-person-1-vote democratic and transparent form - as we always carry a vital responsibility to collectively choose what has control over our lives and what would ensure us maximum happiness.

As we acknowledge and sign this open-ended world-wide published declaration in multitudes, we pledge allegiance to each other. We are firm in our disassociation from the previous “United States Government” or any corrupt power. In unison We proclaim to disallow that organization to silence us, to control the mass media or the internet, to suppress us, to conduct experiments on us, to tax us, to bill us, to create - nor borrow paper money, to detain us, to imprison us, to legislate for us nor to adjudicate any proceedings, to terrorize nor genocide us, to direct our armed forces, to make war, or make agreements in our name, nationally or internationally. We are fully aware of our God-given rights including dissent.

Signed, X________________________________ Date of signing: _________/ 20___

Addendum: Initial action plan for the people’s convention

• Withdrawing our businesses and franchises from federal or state-wide taxation of the “United States Government” and its equally corrupt mother company, the United Nations and World Bank.

• Create a new fully accountable system of money and taxation commissioned by the improved freshly-chartered citizen’s government to: pay off all national debts, redistribute wealth fairly, fund the new government, and reinvigorate the economy.

• Establish a new passport identification, numbered as chronologically signed, and imprinted inside a new & improved Bill of Rights - to be made available for all listed and future citizen signatories of this declaration of freedom from tyranny statement; that anyone and everyone around the world is invited to recognize and support together forevermore.

• Close and refurbish Washington DC, and convert the former capitol into a city-wide orphanage and school campus for the nation’s underprivileged citizen children; dedicated in honor of patriots who lived bravely before us and without shame.

• Build a beautiful new national capitol city designed by non-freemasonic architects and constructed by the many hands of the nation within a large, and voted-upon, national forest or parkland.
