Today's panic seems to be in Europe and Korea.
Deutsche Bank is out of gold . Well maybe not completely out but they want to keep what's not theirs to keep. In my book that's called criminal deceit but in banker talk they said they have the option to review, stall, and postpone a decision to make a decision about a decision on whether or not to make a decision about delivery on a contractual obligation to a customer. A reverse bank robbery. Quick, point the security cameras somewhere else. Oh, and the German government is telling its citizens to prepare for annihilation. Stock up now on necessary staples . Why? They blame the possibility of terrorists run-a-muck. Or, is it "Russian Roulette" with tactical nukes? Why does the US have tactical nukes in Turkey? Errrr, Romania. Yes! that's it! They're safer stored closer to the Russians. Obama got the Peace Prize. Remember? Umm, Hillary can't recall but that's another story for another time.
Korea is not such an economic power house after all. Hanjin, one of the world's largest cargo shipping service is out of money! Ships are floating around and aren't allowed to port because Hanjin didn't pay the bill from the last few times. This is the second Korean shipping domino to fall.
All this failure and fear point to one thing in the world of . The value of escaping from bankrupt fiat currency is increasing. Just look at Venezuela. This long term fiat panic will overpower the short term crypto panic of a hack attack. By the way, the trail is still hot on where all that coin went.
The near $900 inflection point to take place next summer is going to make 2017 a year to remember. For traditional chartists, it completes the cup. That cup has a target value of $1700....or more?
Buy some Iodine pills and about a 1000 rolls of toilet paper, and stay frosty my friends.
