Not much going on the last few days, just more of the same until Congress gets back and the German’s have their election and more rumors about the new head of the Fed. Groovygirl is just waiting for the intense pre-show to 2015 that should begin in earnest this fall. Popcorn, anyone?

….JP Morgan’s commodities business, make sure you actually visit to vaults unannounced to verify the balance sheet holdings of current customers.

Tyler says it best: “That said, we are confident that the collapse in represented (but not warranted) JPM Comex gold vault holdings to a record low, and this news is completely unrelated.”

Very Important

The SEC is issuing warnings about the money market fund industry.

Click here.

There are a few conclusions to draw here.

  • This was a very quiet warning on July 17th. Quiet means we want to have the record we warned you, but we don’t want to start a panic.
  • Too late, gg suspects we start to see the “quiet panic” around August 7th? Just a guess ­čÖé
  • Money Market Funds collapse because investors need liquidity to cover another collapsed market that is underwater in debt. (i.e. they do not have the capital, assets, or even cash flow, to cover the debt needed to continue business or sustain the market.) This is the way the mortgage crisis moved to completely freeze credit in the US market in 2008-2009 and thus effected every business and market in the US and around the globe.
  • Money market funds are used by all business like a revolving credit card. If it drys up, business and banks must be bailed out to keep normal daily business going, for things such as payroll.
  • If those businesses do not have enough cash to hold them for six months to a year without adequate cash/credit, they go bankrupt, and lay off employees. We saw this in 2008-2010.
  • There will be no bail-out this time around. Your funds will disappear, it will be a bail-in. If you remember, money market funds delayed cash withdrawal requests for up to 6 months the last time around. The only reason it was only 6 months….bail outs, free loans from the government to keep the game going and the sheeple asleep.
  • Notice the time line from the 2007 crash. Stocks/housing market start to decline in fall of 2007, fully clear to all in 2006 that it was coming/in process. Contagion starts to be felt by everyone and all markets by 2008-2009 as major companies/banks go under or require major bailouts. This doesn’t happen over night. It just seems to because the insiders’ panic is not announced or acknowledged or covered-up.
  • We do not know what the catalyst will be this time, but we have several options: muni bond markets, continued European debt implosion, slowdown in China, derivatives from any one of these markets, war/terrorism/Arab Spring, change in law for one of these investment markets, old derivatives from 2008 mortgage crisis that have not been realized. Take your pick.
  • All of the above-mentioned markets (actually all markets tied to debt/margin) are VERY FRAGILE. They will all be severely effected by whatever the catalyst is this time around. That will make this coming collapse in 2015, as suggested by Martin Armstrong, much worse than 2008.

Beware and be prepared. Groovygirl is not suggesting have absolutely no cash in money market funds, just don’t have it all in that type of investment. You are responsible for making the decisions for your own investments.

Side musing: regarding Martin Armstrong’s 2007 turning point. Groovygirl thought it very interesting that major national security websites and data systems were hacked in 2007. Just now being admitted. This could be point the history books point to as the fall of the American Empire (foreign hackers are the Barbarians at the Roman gate) and the official start of the new war: cyber warfare. very interesting. Although it was announced that the Pentagon was hacked. Apparently several other private and government infrastructure sites were hacked including electrical and water infrastructure and NASA, as well as national security sites. The hackers were downloading information and able to view current information for six months before discovery. And they aren’t even sure if it was all the Chinese. This is the new war.
