Time once again to look to the recent past so we can see clearly where things are going today. I am rather vain about the fact that I have nearly always called the future correctly based on incoming information each daily cycle. It is even rather scary, how prescient my predictions are. Well, this is due to knowing where money and power come from: that lovely golden Cave of Death. Anyway, we have a small pause today in the news, the major news being Mother Nature taking aim at US oil rigs right when both of our candidates for emperor are threatening Russia and daring Russia to cut energy to Europe. So oil prices are jumping upwards like a frog on a French frying pan. We get to visit the BIS headquarters in Europe to learn more about global currency markets. Yikes.
