The central bank has recently cut rates while pumping over $200 billion into the short term overnight loan market, pledging to continue for the next 14 days with anywhere from half a trillion to over $1 trillion USD in order to maintain liquidity and “keep the economy strong”.

Do Something About Your IRA or 401k While You Still Can
A Gold IRA:
*Can protect you from the devaluation of the dollar due to un-payable US national debt
*Enables you to make money even as stock markets decline, drop in price, or even crash
*Let’s you retain all the same tax benefits of a traditional IRA or 401k
When the Recession is officially announced, it will likely already be too late to save your retirement and investments. And a Depression will likely not be announced.
The Federal Reserve echoed once again how it plans to maintain interest rates artificially low as the summer cookout of the books continues full stride into the latter half of 2017.
The stock market and housing markets don’t seem to mind. Central bankers afraid to burst our bubble?
US Dollar Drops on Federal Reserve Remarks
With stock markets hitting record highs while P/E (price to earnings) ratios follow suit, many technical indicators are already showing some type of market correction in the near future. Other countries like Russia and China are buying up more gold and dumping US treasuries.
The recent drop in value of the dollar by about 8% could be one of the final canaries in the coal mine. This is why it would be wise to put a portion of your investment/retirement portfolio into a Gold IRA. It’s physical gold/silver that you can hold while receiving the same tax benefits of a traditional IRA or 401K.
Gold Increases Value on Poor Jobs Report
China and Russia buy up more gold, hide the official quantities reported
Just remember that as China builds infrastructure and drops investment dollars into foreign economies, the US threatens to drop bombs in order to influence the world. With a $20 Trillion dollar debt and no possible way out of the current 0% interest rates, empires tend to want to go to war.
