Switzerland May Be Preparing for the End of the Euro

Something is brewing in Europe now that has the Swiss National Bank worried.

If you haven’t been paying attention in the last 24 hours, the currency and equity markets have been rocked by a surprise move to delink the existing currency peg between the Euro and the Swiss Franc. This move has set off what many are calling a “financial tsunami” that could leave behind a path of destruction across the continent.

Waking up to find that the local Swiss ATM will not dispense Euros may be viewed as a short-term inconvenience to the average man on the street, but learning that depositing your money in a Swiss bond with maturities of less than 7 years will cost you money, is catastrophic. It is worth repeating, if you lend or deposit your money with the Swiss, they are going to charge you, not pay you.

Negative interest rates are never a sign that things are getting better–quite the opposite. The current yield curve movement indicates a growing concern that things are deteriorating. The further out on the curve the negative rates go, the greater the perceived danger. From the recent moves, many would conclude that Europe is in serious trouble. Yesterday, the Swiss stock market responded by crashing–experiencing its worse daily drop in over two decades, while its currency skyrocketed.

Gold & Silver are up a little over the past couple of days

Gold $1,280.69 up16.59 Silver $17.85 up.63

I was buying some silver at 15.50 to 16.00 spot = 20.00 shipped now it in the 25.00 range for individual coin purchases.

Unfortunately my collection is only about 10 1oz coins & 1 5 oz coin since I gave almost half away on Christmas.

Yeah. Ouch.
SNB has been buying Euros in the last 3 years, €600B. And a wee bit of trouble finding places to put it.

ECB may announce QE on the 22nd. If they go that route (and the SNB action on Wed. indicates they might) then it's over the side and damn the barracEUda. At this point, with Greece (massive bank runs the last two days) exiting, BRICS on their own ship and Russia by-passing Ukraine pipelines, there's not much hope for the EU ship of fools.

Got Rubles? Oh wait... Russia shut down all FX trading lmao.gif
