U.S. gold five dollar 1987

When the eight hundred pound gorillas of finance begin running for the exits, its might be a good idea to follow, quickly!  It’s not often that we observe so many of the “Masters of the Financial Universe” moving so swiftly in the same direction at the same time.  Something seems to have spooked Jacob Rothschild, John Paulson, George Soros, and Warren Buffett.  It’s probably not good news!

  • Jacob Rothschild, a British investment banker, and a member of the prominent Rothschild family of bankers recently bet $204 million that the euro will collapse.  As cynicism that the single currency is on its last legs continues to spread among euro zone politicians and the public, the influential financier took the position as a hedge.
  • Billionaire hedge fund manager John Paulson made somewhere around $20 billion betting against the US housing market during the last financial crisis, and now he has made huge bets that the euro will collapse and that the price of gold will go up.
  • George Soros, the man who is famous for breaking the Bank of England, resulting in over $1 billion in profits during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis, who often publicly claims that gold is a horrible investment, and in a bubble as well, has added approximately $130 million in gold investments within the last quarter.
  • The Octogenarian of Omaha, Warren Buffett has terminated $8.25 billion worth of municipal insurance (CDS on municipal bonds). The fact that Buffett closed the position at substantial losses indicates that the once deified investor sees not only major shock waves ahead, but turbulence that is imminent.

Is a massive financial disaster about to hit?  Certainly the European economy is becoming more unstable with each passing day.  Increasingly investors are searching for safe places to put their money, which has noticeably pumped up US and German bonds.  While the mainstream media keeps telling us that everything is “fixed”, the global elite’s actions are sending a considerable different message.  Certainly Rothschild, Paulson, Soros, and Buffett know things that we mere mortals are not privy to.  The fact that they are all acting in unison is quite alarming!
