Protect Your Savings, Learn from Foreign Central Banks and the Super Rich

In uncertain economic times as these when U.S. banks, government institutions, and the FDIC itself is nearing bankruptcy… don’t be unwise and bet on big brother to take care of you. Let’s not forget the United States of America is the world’s largest debtor nation with $10 trillion and counting amassing billions in interest daily.

Given America’s troubling foreign policy by which it irritates and alienates many of the nations holding its debt and Treasury bills, it won’t be long before the nations of the world and OPEC say no more and opt for other currencies over the dollar.

Be discerning and diligent to guard your hard earned assets and protect your life savings. Learn from the foreign central banks governing monetary policy of nations and the super rich, who diversify their currency reserves and are increasingly adding their holdings of gold, Euros, and Chinese yuan while dumping dollars.

Foreign Currency Exchange Swap Lines – What Central Banks are Whispering?

In response to continued strains in short-term funding markets, Central Banks across the world have coordinated actions to significantly expand the capacity to provide U.S. dollar liquidity. Central banks publicly commit to continue to work together closely and say they are prepared to take appropriate steps as needed to address funding pressures.

This should serve to drive up the value of the dollar on the short-term (for a month or so) until fear and panic eventually take hold and Central Banks one by one begin dumping dollars.

That being said, there are some short-term possible gains for those who invest in the dollar and substantial long-term gains for those who sell dollars while they are high and opt to invest and protect their savings in strong currencies such as the Euro and Chinese yuan. Of course a safe haven for consumers and investors with less intestinal fortitude would be gold.

The U.S. Federal Reserve announced several initiatives to support financial stability and to maintain a stable flow of credit to the economy during this period of significant strain in global markets.

The Fed commits to continue to adapt these liquidity facilities as necessary and will keep them in place as long as circumstances require.

Actions by the Federal Reserve include:  (1) an increase in the size of the 84-day maturity Term Auction Facility (TAF) auctions to $75 billion per auction from $25 billion beginning with the October 6 auction, (2) two forward TAF auctions totaling $150 billion that will be conducted in November to provide term funding over year-end, and (3) an increase in swap authorization limits with the Bank of Canada, Bank of England, Bank of Japan, Danmarks Nationalbank (National Bank of Denmark), European Central Bank (ECB), Norges Bank (Bank of Norway), Reserve Bank of Australia, Sveriges Riksbank (Bank of Sweden), and Swiss National Bank to a total of $620 billion, from $290 billion previously.

These steps are being undertaken in an attempt to mitigate pressures evident in the term funding markets both in the United States and abroad.  The Federal Reserve’s actions are desiring to reassure financial market participants that financing will be available against good collateral, which they hope will lessen concerns about funding and rollover risk.

84-Day Maturity TAF Auctions
The increase to $75 billion per auction will triple the supply of 84-day maturity credit to $225 billion from $75 billion.  TAF credit at the 28-day maturity will remain at $75 billion.  The total amount of TAF credit available in the 28-day and 84-day auction cycles will double to $300 billion from $150 billion.

Foreign Exchange Swap Lines
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) has authorized a $330 billion expansion of its temporary reciprocal currency arrangements (swap lines).  This increased capacity will be available to provide funding for U.S. dollar liquidity operations by the other central banks.  The FOMC has authorized increases in all of the temporary swap facilities with other central banks.  These larger facilities will now support the provision of U.S. dollar liquidity in amounts of up to $30 billion by the Bank of Canada, $80 billion by the Bank of England, $120 billion by the Bank of Japan, $15 billion by Danmarks Nationalbank, $240 billion by the ECB, $15 billion by the Norges Bank, $30 billion by the Reserve Bank of Australia, $30 billion by the Sveriges Riksbank, and $60 billion by the Swiss National Bank.  As a result of these actions, the total size of outstanding swap lines is $620 billion.

All of the temporary reciprocal swap facilities have been authorized through April 30, 2009.

Dollar funding rates abroad have been elevated relative to dollar funding rates available in the United States, reflecting a structural dollar funding shortfall outside of the United States.  The increase in the amount of foreign exchange swap authorization limits will enable many central banks to increase the amount of dollar funding that they can provide in their home markets.  This should help to improve the distribution of dollar liquidity around the globe. Whether the value of the dollar holds on the long term against inflation and deflation however is highly unlikely.

That being said, there are some short-term possible gains for those who invest in the dollar and substantial long-term gains for those who sell dollars while they are high and opt to invest and protect their savings in strong currencies such as the Euro and Chinese yuan. A more cautious and safe route for consumers and investors is also found in the safe haven of gold.

Libor Rate Indicates a Dying Dollar and Sketchy U.S. Treasury

The LIBOR is among the most common of benchmark interest rate indexes used to make adjustments to adjustable rate mortgages.

Watch out for choking credit markets, as the financial crisis spreads from the U.S. to European stock markets causing a domino effect throughout the financial world.

Over the weekend, Germany implemented a bailout of its own, injecting €50 billion to help out struggling Hypo Real Estate bank, the nation’s Financy Ministry said.

Nevertheless as banks in Europe struggle, the European Central Bank has maintained its key lending rate. That tells me the Euro will be the strongest currency in the world and the one to invest in.

If you like gold for asset protection – play it safe here.   http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

The 3-month Libor rate seems to be getting higher as the global credit crunch tightens on national banks throughout the world.

$700 Billion Bailout from U.S. Government for Wall Street Credit Default Swaps Weapons of Mass Financial Destruction

The U.S. government, rather than buying preferred stock in the failing banks and companies (like billionaire Warren Buffet who bought $5 billion worth of Goldman Sachs) to protect taxpayers and gov’t investment, opted to buy the defaulted loans and rubbish from the financial institutions’ basements.

As Wall Street tycoons and Washington insiders fade away with their millions before the entrance of a new presidential administration, the American people are wondering what is going on? Of course the Cngressional appropriations bill hasn’t been made available for the common people to read in detail. The extent of the secrecy and $150 billion worth of sweeteners to get Congressional representatives opposing the bill to sign on should tell us something. 

Buy gold and Euros before the dollar dies indefinitely.

Buy Gold or Euros – Dying American Dollar, Rising Euro and Gold, Crisis in U.S. Capitalism

[big]Buy gold and Euros as the American dollar dies amid a crisis in U.S. capitalism.[/big]

 

Warnings from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Central Banks across the world. Turmoil and serious consequences for global financial markets. Buy gold or Euros to protect your savings.

 

http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

 

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

 

Bernanke’s fiscal policy speech to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) on July 8, 2008 calling the U.S. economy in “turmoil” was quite revealing. Meanwhile Bernanke and Paulson reported to the media and American people the economy was fundamentally strong.

 

Bernanke told the BIS in July, 2008 it is “Unrealistic to think financial crisis can be eliminated”.

 

The euro was used in around 37% of all foreign exchange transactions in April, 2007. If you care about protecting your dollar invest in gold or Euros before inflation devours your dollar overnight.

A massive 777 point drop in Wall Street stocks on September 29, 2008 is sufficient evidence of things to come.

 

If you still are not convinced and like many across America remain nieve trusting “big brother” to take care of you, think again!

 

“Despite the efforts of the Federal Reserve, the Treasury, and other agencies, global financial markets remain under extraordinary stress. Action by the Congress is urgently required to stabilize the situation and avert what otherwise could be very serious consequences for our financial markets and for our economy.”

 

Ben S Bernanke: Economic outlook when giving before the Joint Economic Committee, US Congress, Washington DC, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

“As one banker famously said last year “As long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance”. Well, if it is the role of the central banker to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets going, perhaps the role of the supervisor is to silence the band so the bankers stop dancing.

 

Investors did not perform their own due diligence. Instead, they relied on the due diligence of originators and packagers, who lacked interest in exercising this due diligence. They also placed undue reliance on the judgments of the credit rating agencies, and the capacity of modern technology and diversification to manage financial risks.

 

What can we draw from this? The combination of excess lending with an obvious failure to adhere to fundamental and sound risk management standards not only produced significant losses in mortgage portfolios; it also tainted an asset type that was key in the broader securitisation and credit distribution process.”

 

Nout Wellink: Responding to uncertainty

Remarks by Dr Nout Wellink, President of the Netherlands Bank and Chairman of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, at the International Conference of Banking Supervisors 2008, Brussels, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

The United States is currently in the midst of a financial crisis, the backwash of which is sweeping through the global financial system. …The most recent wave of financial turbulence is the worst so far since the original US mortgage crisis broke out.

 

Inflation means that everyone gets less for their money. Oil, electricity and food prices have risen substantially. These goods are an important part of household consumption. …these goods have become more expensive in the world market.”

 

Stefan Ingves: Financial turbulence, monetary policy and inflation

Speech by Mr Stefan Ingves, Governor of the Sveriges Riksbank, to SACO, the Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations, Stockholm, 24 September 2008.

 

 

 

 

“What I was afraid of has occurred.

 

In the USA, the shortcomings of governance in the financial system have been revealed for all to see in the crisis….  To begin with, the Fed was not so well equipped with instruments for the liquidity policy action necessitated by the subprime crisis.”

As I can report from my own experience, but [b]without giving too many secrets away[/b], [i]the Eurosystem has earned a great deal of respect in the international institutions and bodies which are dealing in depth with the financial crisis[/i] and the lessons and implications to be drawn from it.”

 

Hermann Remsperger: Fundamental issues of stabilising the financial system

Keynote speech by Professor Dr Hermann Remsperger, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank, at the conference on “Determinants and implications of the financial crisis” of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management – Bankakademie, HfB, Frankfurt am Main, 17 September 2008.

 

 

 

First, we should further step up our efforts to build a truly integrated, safe and highly competitive European financial market. The tenth anniversary of the ECB one month ago gave us the occasion to take stock of the achievements in European financial integration over the past decade. We were proud to find that significant progress has been achieved and that the introduction of the single currency has acted as a major driving force in this regard. However, as I would like to underline today, [b]further efforts are necessary to make the single financial market a reality.[/b]

 

http://www.bullionvault.com/#paulfdavis

 

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

 

While financial integration is first and foremost a market-driven process, authorities can play an important supportive role in a number of ways, for instance by acting as catalysts for private sector initiatives and by reducing policy-related obstacles to cross-border finance. The Eurosystem can also provide central banking services that support the financial integration process.

 

[b]Europe is one of the major building blocks of the global economy and, as such, needs to play a very active role in fostering sound financial globalisation.[/b]

 

Responding to the global financial market correction

 

[b]Financial integration is proceeding not only within Europe, but also at the global level.[/b] Financial globalisation enables the international community to share significant benefits in terms of enhanced financial efficiency and economic growth, but it also makes the safeguarding of financial stability a more interdependent endeavour. Effectively coordinated international action aimed at addressing financial system vulnerabilities has therefore become very important, as highlighted during the ongoing financial market correction.

 

The report of the Financial Stability Forum (FSF) on Enhancing Market and Institutional Resilience has been fully endorsed by the international community and provides the main reference point for the necessary improvements.

 

Lastly, closer ongoing cooperation should be pursued not only between supervisors, but also between supervisors and central banks. Such joint work, to be pursued at all levels (nationally, regionally and globally), would in particular aim to enhance the integration of supervisors’ micro-prudential functions and central banks’ macro-prudential functions in the assessment of possible financial risks and vulnerabilities. This would make a significant contribution to raising awareness of emerging financial system imbalances at an earlier stage and devising effectively coordinated public sector action to address them. …increasingly important to ensure a comprehensive and consistent treatment of the respective financial risks.

 

Jean-Claude Trichet: Fostering sound financial globalisation – the role of Europe

Speech by Mr Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank, at the Paris Europlace Financial Forum “The Paris Marketplace Contribution to the Global Economy”, Paris, 2-3 July 2008.

FDIC Over Extension and Bankruptcy – 100 Banks Expected to Fail

Will the FDIC will insure your bank savings account?

Suppose the FDIC like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae goes bankrupt? The FDIC has $48 billion in assets, but insures $3 trillion in deposits. The FDIC projects 100 bank failures costing $800 billion.

Put your money in Euros or gold!

The death of the U.S. dollar is imminent. Before the greenback has its final heart attack, get ahead of the next catastrophe on Wall Street.

http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

Don’t be deceived by the lying media owned by multi-national corporations. Wall Street insiders will paint a rosy picture while they tycoons walk away with the loot. Awake and take immediate action before your savings disappears overnight.
http://ads.easy-forex.com/Gateway.aspx?gid=104994

Your bank accounts are insured unless there is a banking crisis. Then you must be prepared for the worst.

The greatest threat is a gridlock in the payments system – like many consumers face paying their own monthly debts. When bank A cannot pay bank B at the end of the day because bank C has not paid bank A…defaults within the banking industry, leading to corporate bankruptcies occur.

How long would your local ATM have money inside under this scenario? Not long I suspect as is the case with Washington Mutual when consumers made a run on the bank recently as it neared bankruptcy before being bought by J.P. Morgan at the last minute.

Such a national catastrophe came close in the summer of 1998, when the hedge fund, Long Term Capital Management, almost went bankrupt. The New York Federal Reserve Bank intervened.

Times of intense uncertainty should not take you unawares. Be prepared and protect your savings and investments by putting them in Euros or gold lest they vanish overnight.

U.S. Mint Suspends Gold Coin Sales as the Dollar Dies – Protect Your Savings as U.S. Economy Tanks

Put your money in Euros or gold!

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) reported that the United States Mint has suspended sales of American Eagle gold coins to their network of Authorized Purchasers.

The U.S. Mint has halted sales of its American Eagle and American Buffalo 24-carat gold one-ounce bullion coins because “inventories have been depleted,” the Mint said.

The coins which sold for $800 can’t keep up with demand from panicky investors looking for something — anything — that seems safe during the current crisis.

The price of gold has risen in recent weeks, topping $920 per ounce as concerns rise over the passage of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout and subsequent fears about a further stock market drop.

The Mint has sold 164,000 24-carat gold coins this year, which is nearly 30,000 more than during all of 2007.

Invest in Euros or gold before your U.S. dollar savings disappear!
