Hey Scorp,
Down is up, left is right....
We are being inundated from every angle with misinformation and absurdity, the goal is that most will lose their base and be unable to function. Blinded by volume, masses with the hour glass spinning on the screen, deer in the headlights look. Its the ultimate test of the emergency broadcast system, most are going to fail...

Enjoy your holidays, families, friends, a good book, a great bourbon and some occasional nookie is all that matters....

Karvy was a stock trading company that helped itself to its client shares using their POA signature and got loans from various banks including ICICI, HDFC, ETC to the tune of 200 million dollars. The Authorities finally stopped karvy from furthering the Ponzi scheme.

U.S. Government Sets Record for Debt Auctions

Total sum to hit $2.55 trillion; share of debt purchased by investors was largest since auction data was made public

The Treasury Department auctioned seven-year notes Thursday, closing the door on a record year for sales of longer-term debt in 2019.

The auction lifted the total of notes and bonds sold by the U.S. government with maturities ranging from two to 30 years to $2.55 trillion, a 26% increase from 2017, when Congress and President Trump agreed to massive corporate tax cuts.

The amount of government debt is expected to rise, eventually pushing up the size of government debt auctions in coming years, as the U.S. is forecast to run trillion-dollar budget deficits for the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Who is buying 2.5 trillion in US debt? While we are at it who owns the 23 trillion of our debt? No one on the planet has that kind of cash.

Reading between the lines........taxes are going up, up, up and interest rates will remain around zero until we turn them negative so make other plans for your extra fiat....

oil rolled off the highs on big storage build ie supply

still closed solidly higher with the tension, as people try to figure out the play

gold finished strong as well as shitcoin,

whereas silver got tossed into the trash as not consequential

metals catching a real nice bid on the evening open,

dollar flat while oil also catches a bid,

stocks down some, but nothing of significance yet

lot of power trying to put down the metal rally though,
gold 16 bucks off its early highs, while silver slips back again as it did on Fri

If this is true, this can be the act of war the west has been seeking. Any intentional act or crime against the free flow of international commerce is considered a cassis belli.

"The economy is really just a function of energy inputs, and these must be inputs that make economic sense — that don't cost more than whatever they return. All our banking and finance arrangements depend on that. If energy inputs decline, or the cost in energy exceeds the value of net energy you get, then debts of every kind can no longer be repaid and the whole system implodes. From there the question is whether collapse is slow or fast. My guess is that it may start slowly and then accelerate rapidly to critical — and the process has already begun."
