Gold Trades Close To All Time Record, Silver Hits 30 Year High

Gold Trades Close To All Time Record, Silver Hits 30 Year High 051010goldBernanke’s endless talk of more dollar printing sets precious metals soaring

Gold prices rose close to all time highs on Monday following Ben Bernanke’s comments on CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, as the Fed chairman indicated that even more quantitative easing is being considered.

Bernanke appeared less than convincing as he told viewers that the economic recovery may not be self-sustaining, and that the Fed may purchase even more Treasury bonds.

The comments, coupled with the fact that unemployment in the US is now officially at its worst levels since World War Two, a fact that has been long known but never admitted, were driving factors in sending gold and silver soaring once more.

Investors are still seeking a safe haven in the precious metals, driving gold futures for February delivery up $10.50, or 0.8 percent, to $1,416.70 at 10:22 a.m. on the Comex in New York.

Earlier in the day the price climbed as high as $1,420.

Gold has now risen in value approximately 29 percent this year and will make a tenth consecutive annual gain.

“Further currency debasement is the new norm,” said Matt Zeman, a metals trader at LaSalle Futures Group in Chicago told Bloomberg News.

“As long as that stands, investors are going to buy metals as a hedge against paper money. Gold has very clear sailing to go much further from here.”

Zeman also pointed out that gold would now be even higher if investors were not also buying dollars as a safer bet against the Euro.

“Without the eurozone troubles in the background, we’d see the dollar much weaker and gold much higher,” Zeman said. “These debt issues continue to pop up, and printing more money is essentially a huge positive for gold.”

“Gold is supported either way — risk sentiment turning sour, or (by) further weakness in the greenback,” added VTB Capital analyst Andrey Kryuchenkov. “Clearly investment demand is still there.”

Fears over the spread of the European debt crisis were also heightened today with news that Moody’s downgraded Hungary’s debt to the lowest investment grade.

Zeman predicts that gold will hit $1500 before the end of the month.

Meanwhile, spot silver traded at a 30 year high, gaining almost 2 per cent to $29.90 a troy ounce, the highest price since 1980.

The precious metal has gained 10 per cent in the past week, and 66 per cent since August.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
