What Does He Know, That You Don’t? Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (Who Made His Money Working For Rothschild) Dumps Stocks, Buys Treasuries After “Ethics Warning”

What Does He Know? Ross Dumps Stocks, Buys Treasuries After “Ethics Warning”:

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has been reprimanded by federal ethics officials for failing to sell individual stocks that he had agreed to divest within three months of his confirmation (he was confirmed in February 2017), creating “the potential for a serious criminal violation.” Claiming that he had forgotten about the remainder of his stake, Ross earned himself an additional 15% return when he finally cashed out of his remaining Invesco shares as equity prices continued to rise after his confirmation. As part of his ethics agreement, Ross pledged to divest his Invesco holdings and other equities within 90 days of his confirmation, and more complex assets within 180 days, according to Bloomberg.

Then again, perhaps investors should interpret Ross’s decision to finally sell as a warning, given that one of the men in charge of the US economy has sold the rest of his stocks and is buying Treasury bonds – hardly an encouraging indicator for the economy.

In fact, Ross hasn’t just sold stocks – in some cases, he’s gone short, saying that he’s shorted shares of holdings to which he doesn’t have access. Ross has reportedly taken short positions in five stocks.

– Mike Krieger: Trump Pulls Out of Iran Deal – U.S. Determined to Become a Rogue State:

“Let me cut to the chase. Every single world leader knows Trump’s full of shit. Even more importantly, the citizens of their nations also know it. Everyone with a functioning brain understands that pulling out of the Iran deal has nothing to do with terrorism, nuclear bombs or any other fairytale propagated by U.S. neocons. This is simply about the existence of a non-U.S. client state in a key strategic region sitting on massive oil reserves. It’s about empire — global games of power and money fueled by a desperate attempt to hold on to a unipolar world where the U.S. bosses everyone around.”

Gold & Silver Eagle Sales Drop Sharply Due To Central Bank Intervention

Gold & Silver Eagle Sales Drop Sharply Due To Central Bank Intervention:

Thanks to the Fed and Central bank intervention, sales of Gold and Silver Eagle sales declined sharply over the past year. Yes, it’s true… precious metals investors have lost interest in gold and silver as the stocks, real estate, and crypto markets reached new highs in 2017. So, who wants to continue purchasing gold and silver when many cryptocurrencies were experiencing 10% increases in a day.
