It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford

Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Benjamin Franklin

The idea that you know what is true is dangerous, for it keeps you imprisoned in the mind. It is when you do not know, that you are free to investigate. ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

I dont profess to be a waver but here's a stab...

Tuesday 27 December 2016


In the final hours before the Christmas holiday weekend, U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday quietly signed the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law—and buried within the $619 billion military budget (pdf) is a controversial provision that establishes a national anti-propaganda center that critics warn could be dangerous for press freedoms.
The Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act, introduced by Republican Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, establishes the Global Engagement Center under the State Department which coordinates efforts to “recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining United Sates national security interests.”


First sign of a bottom would be break above support,then breaking the moving aves. Gold likes the equinox/solstice dates for turns

this uses a 50 period MA for the bollinger band

the measured moves are around 1050

To me this is a bearish engulfing candle coming in on the square of the range (453 pts/45 days) British Bulls are calling it confirmation of a "bearish deliberation block" pattern

my thanks to Sukimoto for this post

Foster Gamble of THRIVE has written a letter to President elect Donald Trump.
Dear President-elect Trump,
It’s Foster Gamble here, co-creator of THRIVE and Thrive Movement.
I am writing to congratulate you and to share a profound opportunity to use your extraordinary courage and independence on behalf of a whole new kind of leadership.
I was invited to run for President on the Libertarian ticket and also for Vice President with Jill Stein for the Green Party. I appreciated the invitations, but respectfully declined. I see my role personally as more impactful from outside of a system I don’t believe in. Instead I have spent my time and resources identifying and vetting new energy and healing technologies that obsolete the destructive and dirty technologies of coal, fracking, nuclear and the like in favor of hyper-efficient and “over unity” energy technologies. I am confident that a combination of the New Energy technologies, along with the guiding principle of non-violation that we at Thrive are committed to, can yield consistent win-win global, national and local solutions.
You are now in the ultimate position from inside the system. You have used your own resources and resisted the bribes from corporations, bankers, lobbyists and wealthy individuals who would want to buy your obligation and compromise your values. Now you are poised with an unprecedented and hard-won opportunity to make a historic difference, not just for America, but for all of humanity — at a moment when we are at a fork in the road between potential paradise and looming oblivion.
Clearly, most would characterize you as an “Alpha.” You are strong, talented and athletic. You are drawn to lead. You’re capable of creating wealth. You attract beautiful and capable women, and you have clearly enjoyed the influence that can come with that. But there is a personal transformation that awaits you to become what researchers are now calling a “Gamma.” A Gamma has those same potentialities, but has transcended the need to dominate by force, to brag, to sacrifice integrity for profit, and the need to react in petty and volatile ways to affronts. A Gamma is dedicated to win-win, to peaceful resolution, and to the empowerment of all those around him.
Right now, as the magnitude of your opportunity and responsibility is settling freshly on your shoulders, is the perfect moment to integrate and continue the style of your acceptance speech into your relationships and decisions every day. You have the talent and the charisma to leave the volatile, vindictive, macho persona — which could be cataclysmic on the global scale — completely behind you… and begin to operate consistently from a profound and respectful confidence that your leadership can not only help people make America great, but that, together, we can inspire the whole world.
Now is also the critical moment for choosing Gamma men and women for your team.
You already have some good ethical people to assist you and you can easily attract more if you have moral principles on which to base your choices:
Your economic advisor, Judy Shelton, understands the value of sound money. She and others, like Ron Paul, can guide you on the return to asset-backed currency.
David Stockman could bring some integrity to the Office of Management and Budget. Trey Gowdy has shown himself to be brave and relentless in taking on legal and financial corruption.
I am glad you have people like Roger Stone, Laura Ingraham and Alex Jones informing you about the globalist agendas going on behind the scenes. If you don’t know of them already, I hope you will have your team check out the principled guidance of folks like Stefan Molyneux, Larken Rose, Mary Ruwart, Lew Rockwell, Doug Casey, Hans Hoppe, James Corbett, Mark Corske, Wendy McIlroy and Michael Huemer. If we at the Thrive Movement can be of assistance in elucidating that, both here and abroad, don’t hesitate to ask. We need a deep understanding of the true nature of our predicament if we are going to have solutions commensurate to the problems. Our film, THRIVE, already has over 68 million views in 27 languages, spawning over 1,000 solutions groups all over the world.
I personally have contacts among the Dragon Families of the far-east who are offering to distribute vast troves of stored, off-market gold to reboot the global economy, erase national debts and empower the world’s best humanitarian projects — as long as it is not stolen by the Rothschild/Rockefeller banking cabal. (I understand this is risky. It is what JFK was working on with Phillipine President Soekarno and their signed Green Hilton Agreement, just weeks before he was assassinated. But it is also the quickest route to global prosperity and cooperation of which I am aware.)
This is quite a preferable option to the imminent collapse of the dollar and isolation of the western economies. You must be aware that while Bush and Obama have been invading one country after another (Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Ukraine, Libya, Yemen, Syria etc.) and resisting the move to asset-backed currencies and a Global Currency Reset, Putin and Xi Jinping have been creating win/win trade deals with many countries, both large and small. History has shown that to be the true path to peace. Now is your chance to make Gamma deals on a global scale that can create prosperity and security for generations to come.
The backlash you will be getting for promoting the dangerous and polluting nuclear, fracking, coal and the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, can ALL go away if you help us set up safeguards for releasing the multiple “free energy” devices (as described in THRIVE) into the world without corporate or government suppression. I was invited to the Obama White House and to Bechtel to brief them on this field, which I have been in for nearly 20 years. I declined — because I understand the agendas of their controllers. With your help, we could liberate these economic and ecologic game-changers.
If this makes any sense I invite you to contact me for further and deeper discussion of what is really going on and the moral philosophy, strategies, and tactics to truly liberate the people of America and the world. Here’s a video clip describing our inclusive strategy for peaceful transition from where we are now to a truly free, prosperous and thriving world.
I wish you, your family, your team and every affected individual deep clarity, strength, patience and fulfillment in rising above elitist “divide and conquer” strategies to create a condition and a moral pathway whereby everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
Very sincerely,
Foster Gamble
President, Thrive Movement, Int’l.

Cocoa has reached the target I posted a few weeks ago...I suspect a rally then new lows

Clif High

Wednesday 16 November 2016

chart by Attila @Xtrends


3 rejections of10800 (which incidentally is 3 x 3600,the 2009 low) and a break down from the triangle pattern ?

Tuesday 15 November 2016


Sunday 13 November 2016

did some Gann time calculations on the Dax
the decline from 12429 to 8690 in the Dax lasted 308 days,(just short of Gann's 45 weeks) If we rally 308 days off that low you get Dec 14
90 weeks from the high is Dec 30
If we rally for 6 months from the June 24 major low you get Dec 24
Dec 30 was the start of a fast decline 1 year ago
not sure I'd want to be long in January
a 61.8 price retrace of the decline comes in at 11000,the current high is 10826

I posted this setup elsewhere,this morning,following on from yesterday's Dax post........the wedge has now broken

Monday 31 October 2016

there is the potential for a fast move down off the triple top at the Gann 10800 area. A break below the 18dma would suggest this may be in play

Sunday 23 October 2016

Ftse250 - spike top ?


a possible scenario I am looking at.If it breaks back above the green line bears should be careful as it could be a false break and run to take out all the stops

the Dow is vulnerable while it remains below the purple horizontal
