Chris Martenson — IMPORTANT READS

I have mentioned Chris Martenson’s blog on this site many times. Below is a Martenson’s weekly recap for registered users. He has just started this service.

To be a registered user, merely go to his site and sign up. It is free. He also has a subscription service which provides you more information sooner. That is a fee service.

Chris is an interesting guy who saw the financial crisis coming several years before others and several years before it occurred. He was so convinced of what was coming that he “put his money where his mouth was,” altering his and his family’s lifestyle to prepare. He does some of the best analysis on the web. While I don’t agree with everything he says, I do agree with most of it.

I have no relationship with Chris other than an admiration for his work.

Take the time to explore the links in this post. I think you will find them informative, eye-opening and well worth the time. These links represent just one week!

Speaking of changing the rules…

Gold and silver are now down hard over the past two days, and the reason may have something to do with the fact that the CFTC utterly caved to JPM in their long-awaited decision on position limits in a 4-1 vote.

While position limits will eventually be set, maybe, someday, the course of action taken by the CFTC grandfathers in JPM’s
