If I could answer that question, "When do you think that there will be widespread knowledge by people everywhere of what is being done to them by central banks?". I would need more information than I have access to and, the predictive algorithms of the NSA.
At present, there are no major media outlets taking the Banking Cartel on for it's criminal role in the recent housing crisis, (they have protected their corporate owners). It will take a great groundswell of interest in the matter first, then clear reporting on what the Banking Cartel did.
If the Banking Cartel is to be taken down, millions of private RICO Act suits are a perfect suits to file for the 6.5 million American families who lost their homes to the Banking Cartel.
The RICO Act can be used by individuals to sue the banks for treble damages and RICO victories penetrate the corporate protections and make the management culpable. Quite frankly, I am shocked that none of the major law firms filed class-action suits on behalf of the American people.
Perhaps the insane healthcare bill will create a groundswell of dis-satisfaction with government and awareness of the corporate (Insurance & Pharmaceutical) interests being served by the bill.
That in turn may lead to the demand for closer scrutiny of the governments collusion with corporate interests in the fleecing of the American Public.
I won't be holding my breath on any of this happening because of the general malaise of the American population. They are really quite lazy when it comes to their responsibilities as citizens to protect themselves from government activities that violate their rights under the constitution...
In general, the mining stocks performance at the end of the day predicts the next trading days price action in gold.
This has been particularly true in knowing when there would be a take down in golds price the following day. It is less reliable on up days for gold, but Monday will give you the opportunity to observe what happens...
Is it worth the risk? After inflation and taxes your yield is a lousy 0.5%. With the FED busily destroying the buying power of the dollar I'd think twice about tying my hard earned savings up in dollar denominated Treasuries... Simply not worth the risk...
In the case of US Treasuries, you denominate your investment in a currency that is losing at least 2% of it's buying power every year. The yield is a taxable 2.9% (in reality 0.9%) and if the yield keeps rising the bond loses value. So putting long term savings in US Treasuries yields an after tax income of perhaps 0.5% for taking the substantial risk that inflation will not exceed 2% and, that interest rates will not rise.
With the FED diluting the value of the dollar by $85 billion per month, inflation is showing up in all the things we have to consume. From food to healthcare, we are seeing large price increases.
I really do not care if my smartphone, tablet or laptop are faster because I do not come close to using their capacity now...
Inflation is here and it is ugly... Treasuries are for suckers!!!
