Goldman Expands Crypto-Trading Desk By Offering Ether Options

A few weeks ago, while the prices of the biggest cryptocurrencies were careening lowering, Goldman Sachs released what we described as the closest thing to ‘initiating coverage’ on cryptocurrencies, with the big takeaway being that the bank saw Ethereum overtaking bitcoin as the world’s most popular cryptocurrency in the not-too-distant future.

Translating Yellen-Speak Into Golden-Speak

Authored by Matthew Piepenberg via GoldSwitzerland.com, Given the increasingly politicized interplay (cancer) of central bank policy and so-called free market price discovery, it’s becoming increasingly more important to track the actions of central bankers rather than just traditional market signals alone. Like it or not, the Fed is the market. Toward this end, we’ve had some substantive fun deciphering the past, current and future implications of “forward guidance” from […]

New York Times Op-Ed Illustrates How The Left Employs Critical Race Theory Gaslighting

CRT is here in America, and those who support it will stop at absolutely nothing to act as if it is no big deal. The gaslighting continues. Left-wing outlets insist it to no end. Whether in The Washington Post , The New Yorker , Slate , The Atlantic , and just recently The New York Times, in voicing concerns over critical race theory, conservatives are rubes igniting a bogus […]

EU, US Unveil 5-Year Truce In 17-Year Aircraft Trade Spat

The European Union and the United States are on the verge of announcing a truce in their 17-year conflict over aircraft subsidies, bringing to a close one set of Trump-era tariffs which had soured relations between them.

As world leaders descended on Brussels for the first in-person NATO summit since the start of the pandemic, plenty of topics were on the agenda in the Belgian capital but the focus was firmly set to be on President Biden . As Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes , Biden’s most important task was to reassure NATO allies after his predecessor lambasted several members for not paying their fair share on […]

Is A “Climate Lockdown” On The Horizon?

June 15, 2021 ·  · Topic: U S Dollar  · Relevance: bad

Authored by Kit Knightly via Off-Guardian.org, If and when the powers-that-be decide to move on from their pandemic narrative, lockdowns won’t be going anywhere.

At least, according to an article written by an employee of the WHO, and published by a mega-coporate think-tank. Let’s dive right in. THE […]
