Time to hedge against currencies
- Even the leaders are stumbling and wondering
- Sell-off U.S. Treasury bonds
- Make their exports look more attractive
Time to hedge against currencies. Many things are lining up that will affect commodities and currencies. First, the economy is slowing down. Retail sales have fallen for several quarters in a row.
Even the leaders are stumbling and wondering. Also, the EU, especially Germany, is looking weaker. If Germany is weakening, then what is happening to the other European countries? They all must be weakening, however you do not hear much about this.
Germany is one of China’s biggest customers for importing goods, if that slows down then China will look for other ways to boost their exports. One way they could do it is to sell-off U.S. Treasury bonds that they bought as debt.
China owns about one out of every seven dollars of U.S. Treasury debt. If they start selling those bonds that would devalue their currency and make their exports look more attractive boosting sales around the world. This is what will happen as their customers’ currencies and commodities continue to falter.

COMMENTARY: With currencies on the brink of taking a hit, the big short holders on commodities will be putting downward pressure them too. They will do this to get out of their positions. That means that precious metals could fall even as the currencies are falling. It’s manipulation by the biggest manipulators of all, those with the most to gain from this maneuver ie: JP Morgan and others. Until they’re out of their short positions, precious metals will remain suppressed. The real question is, how far will they go to become whole and out from under the mammoth leveraged positions that they created? Do you see how the sell-off of U.S. Treasury bonds will affect you and what you need to do right now before this all hits?
