Now that students have to resume payment, what will the effect be on the economy?
I believe it will be serious. ($1.6 TRILLION outstanding) A huge amount of ‘discretionary’ income will be diverted into those repayments with dire consequences for the overall economy. I believe the impact is being sorely underestimated.
Approximately $9 BILLION a month will be taken out of the regular economy.
With Klaus Schwab pushing for the great reset, how much of the current economic woes are coordinated and not coincidence?
I wonder more and more at the so-called random events that add up to the population being denuded of their finances and privacy.
When I look at every aspect of life, I see the noose tightening. Cash being limited more and more, use of credit cards becoming more prevalent, costs of housing escalating dramatically, inflation in almost if not every aspect of life…
We are being more and more closely monitored, our phones, computers, TV’s, cars and more capture our every movement.
Our spending is tracked in every way and hocked out to advertisers, producers, etc. Every time we search for anything on our computers or discuss a topic, ‘relevant’ adverts appear on our devices.
The convenience factor is there, if only we could trust the corporations and politicians that wield the control strings. China’s social credit score system rears its ugly head in my mind.
Government has become more bloated, with more people required to monitor our every whim, they are soon to be replaced by further specifically trained AI systems. God help us.
As it stands youngsters are unable to afford even a starter home. Does this correspond with Clause’s wish for us to have nothing – ‘and be happy’? I don’t think so. A deliberate strategy?

Bitcoin and Gold
Bitcoin is outperforming gold at this time. This is not unexpected, with the dollar trading around 106.50. I see a spike high and a gap which may indicate a pullback.
Looking at the Bitcoin chart below, the increase in price is less dramatic, but is showing improvement. The reason being that in the chart above we have gold weakening whilst BTC is increasing.
The charts are not showing overbought yet, but funds moving into the coin are diminishing. We will watch the outcome with interest.
Gold and Silver Stocks
Gold and silver stocks have had a torrid week as the dollar strengthened and the metals weakened. I don’t believe that is the only reason for the downward pressure with the large banks admitting to manipulation.
The chart below describes the intensity by which the physical gold has outperformed the gold stocks. Although a couple of indicators are showing an overbought situation, many reflect a continuation of the current situation.
It is important to mention here that the entire market is at risk of an event upsetting all normal analysis.
Gold and Silver
Physical gold and silver have continued to sell off this week and dropped through one support level to the next one down.
Should gold drop below $1,817.00 (which it has this morning) and it not be a false breakdown, the possibility of a further drop to the early $ 1,700.00 becomes real with a stop around $1,789.00.
On the same basis, silver has the potential to drop into the $19.00 area.
Gold to USD chart
The Gold to USD chart below describes the damage done to gold as the dollar has appreciated against the dollar index. This ratio chart is beginning to look oversold. It is standing at present at 17.18 and could possibly go as low as 17.00 support before turning around.
Look at the Gold and Silver chart
|Gold: Silver ratio||86.77:1||83.18:1|
