This Major Fed Move Is About To Create An Explosion In Gold
July 15, 2012
King World News is continuing to receive extraordinary levels of interest in what has turned into a series of Michael Pento pieces. Today Pento reports more stunning news, “Last week the ECB reported that overnight deposits parked at the central bank plunged by the most on record, or €484 billion in just one session. It now seems my theory that banks would deploy their reserves was proven correct in a matter of days.”
Pento also predicted, “I believe the cyclical period of deflation that I warned about several months ago is now close to an end.” Pento is now calling for another significant move, and he noted, “If the Fed does indeed go down that road, I would expect to see U.S money supply growth increase significantly. This will cause gold and commodity prices to soar.”
Today Michael Pento, of Pento Portfolio Strategies, writes exclusively for King World News to put global readers ahead of the curve, once again, on what is unfolding as a result of the major unprecedented moves by central banks. Here is Pento’s piece: “Could it be that world governments and central banks are now taking drastic measures to re-inflate their economies because they don’t believe their own economic statistics? For example, China reported that GDP growth came in at 7.6% last quarter. That’s slower growth, but still not so bad.”
Michael Pento continues:
“However, China’s electricity consumption has slowed much faster than growth in official GDP, (electricity generation was unchanged in June from a year earlier at 393.4 billion kilowatt-hours), when they normally move in tandem. Turning to the U.S., the Labor Department announced last week that initial jobless claims fell 26k to 350k. Sounds great, but wait, digging into the unadjusted data, there was actually an increase of 69,971 claims for the week—an increase of 19% from the week prior. Now that’s some seasonal adjustment!
It is really any wonder why global governments and central banks are starting to panic?….
