My business background is based on economics, finance, and information technology. I did not plan this, FATHER simply navigated my path to end up with this experience. In the last couple of years, the geopolitics has trumped historical economic assumptions, especially the most fundamental law of supply and demand. The western central planners have used the markets for their motives of maintaining control over weaker players. Both China and Russia are experiencing the results of markets being manipulated without regard to the applicable laws. Agent banks are given “get out of jail free” cards and thus they lawlessly carry out the mandate in a secretive fashion. The impact to the small independent investor is dramatic.
The large pension funds run with the herd thus they receive directives “twice removed” and tow the company line. That is good for those who are subject to those funds in that they stay under the protective covering of the central planners without knowing it. The goal of the central planners is to maintain control over all economies around the globe and they will punish anyone who gets out of line with their objectives. They are in strategic positions and are able to retain them because the population is lethargic when it comes to searching out the truth. The population prefers to be entertained rather than be truth seekers. It plays into the hands of those in power.
Saudi Arabia has gone after the American fracking industry because it frankly wants to control the oil price as long as possible. ISIS threatens the House of Saud so they are willing to align themselves with a super power that will come to their aid. The American planners want to show improvement in the economy so they are agreeable to cheaper oil even though it is well documented that peak oil occurred around 2005. Fracking is just a bigger straw to extract what is there but faster.
Gold is the true barometer of the health of a nation’s currency. It is also well documented that the manipulative intervention in that market is atrocious. However, regulators are not interested in the ending the lawlessness. Their motives are not clear but many would suppose they are biased on behalf of large financial institutions. Where do you think they would like to work after leaving public service?
I expect the geopolitical intervention in the markets to increase and get worse. Volatility will increase as well. There are virtually no safe investments anymore. Even your bank deposits are now on the target list. What is the solution? It can only be found in the third Heaven. Our Heavenly Father is the only ONE who can fully understand the current highly complex financial mess we’re in. My focus is ascending to the highest level of Spiritual maturity before it all breaks apart in the markets. I have no idea when but every objective analyst I follow expects the wheels to fall off at some point. When it does, the Spiritually mature will be called forth for the answers. Until then, stay nimble, simplify, and if you must borrow, only borrow for revenue generating reasons.
