So writes Toby Connor (goldscents.blogspot.com) in edited excerpts from his original article* entitled THE NEXT CRISIS HAS BEGUN: AND THIS ONE IS GOING TO BE IN THE CURRENCY MARKETS.

Connor goes on to say in further edited (and in some instances paraphrased) excerpts:
Over the next 3-4 months the dollar is going to test the lower trend line of the megaphone topping pattern and ultimately break through.
When it does we are going to witness a spectacular collapse in the dollar, probably testing the 2011 bottom by the next intermediate cycle low due in November, and this is going to cause all kinds of problems:
- The bond market [is going to continue] breaking free of Fed manipulation. This will only get worse as bonds recognize the severity of the crisis ahead and the Fed prints harder and faster to try and tame the bond market which will…just accelerate the dollar collapse which, in turn, will intensify the selling in bonds.
- The echo bubble in housing has already been pricked. In the chart below we see the same megaphone topping pattern in play as in the dollar index.
Smart money has known for months this was coming. I strongly suspect the manipulation in gold over the last 8 months was done to transfer physical metal from weak hands into strong hands in preparation for this event. Now it’s time for gold to do its job of protecting wealth during a currency crisis.
…Over the next several days and weeks [we are going to see] gold breaks free of the manipulation and gets busy discounting the coming currency crisis. The intervention is going to try hard to keep gold prices down but, ultimately, gold is going to:
- break free of the artificially low prices,
- protect wealth during an inflationary environment just as it always does and…
- rise much further and faster than would have occurred if it had been allowed to trade freely.
Batten down the hatches – the next Fed-created catastrophe has already begun.

Today, more than 60% of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in U.S. dollars – but there are big changes on the horizon…Some of the biggest economies on earth have been making agreements with each other to move away from using the U.S. dollar in international trade…[and this shift] is going to have massive implications for the U.S. economy.

The least imperfect monetary system by which civilized nations can conduct their business is the classical gold standard – a system in which every major nation defines its currency as a weight unit of gold. [Let me explain.] Words: 890 Read More »
Gold cannot possibly lose its central position as the pre-eminent money used by the world for thousands of years. The aggressive measures of the Anglo-American Axis with regard to gold are absurd and they will lead to total disaster both for the Axis, and for the world which has been forced to follow its lead for over forty years.

By its obvious and concerted attack on gold and silver, the U.S. government could not give any clearer warning that trouble is approaching. The values of the dollar and of financial assets denominated in dollars are in doubt. For Americans, financial and economic Armageddon might be close at hand…. Read More »
