As explained in our groundbreaking best-seller Splitting Pennies – the world isn’t as it seems; in fact, the world is a lot simpler and less complex than perceived. We’re victim of “Perception Deception” – as explained eloquently in David Icke’s book. If we can for a moment, de-politicize, de-emotionalize, and ‘de’ all the programming, advertising, and other ‘noise’ designed to distract us from reality; a different picture begins to emerge on the planet. We’re talking about Forex, so let’s look at what happened this week in FX:
During two chaotic minutes of Asian trading, the pound plunged the most since the Brexit referendum in June, with traders saying computer-initiated sell orders exacerbated the slump.
The 6.1 percent drop drove sterling to a 31-year low of $1.1841, according to composite prices compiled by Bloomberg of contributions from dealers. Traders speculated the crash might have been sparked by human error, or a so-called “fat finger,” with algorithms adding to selling pressure at a time of day when liquidity is relatively low.
While the currency snapped back in Asia, it resumed its freefall during European hours, as concern welled up that Britain is headed for a so-called hard Brexit that would restrict its access to the European Union’s single market in return for gaining control of immigration.
Pound ‘flash crash’ sees sterling plunge 6pc within minutes – but was it due to a ‘fat finger’ https://t.co/cFKxo39A1T

So Bloomberg gets one of their London based FX customers on the line, Kit Jukes from SocGen, and asks him candidly about what happened. He says that, Forex markets (and many other markets – too) are going to be volatile until a “New World Order” is implemented. Or to quote him verbatim “Price discovery will be an issue as we move to a New World Order.” The “NWO” he is referring to, is some sort of market panacea, where price discovery is so efficient, well – that’s not a market! Let’s remember how all this Forex started, going back to a small hotel in New England, Bretton Woods:
It was at this place where world leaders agreed to use the US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency, known as the “Bretton Woods” agreement, named after the ski resort where the meeting was held (probably, reminded them of Switzerland):
Preparing to rebuild the international economic system while World War II was still raging, 730 delegates from all 44 Allied nations gathered at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, United States, for the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, also known as the Bretton Woods Conference. The delegates deliberated during 1–22 July 1944, and signed the Bretton Woods agreement on its final day. Setting up a system of rules, institutions, and procedures to regulate the international monetary system, these accords established the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), which today is part of the World Bank Group. The United States, which controlled two thirds of the world’s gold, insisted that the Bretton Woods system rest on both gold and the US dollar. Soviet representatives attended the conference but later declined to ratify the final agreements, charging that the institutions they had created were “branches of Wall Street.” These organizations became operational in 1945 after a sufficient number of countries had ratified the agreement. On 15 August 1971, the United States unilaterally terminated convertibility of the US dollar to gold, effectively bringing the Bretton Woods system to an end and rendering the dollar a fiat currency. This action, referred to as the Nixon shock, created the situation in which the US dollar became a reserve currency used by many states. At the same time, many fixed currencies (such as the pound sterling, for example) also became free-floating.
Fast forward, it’s 10-8-2016, and leading FX strategists are telling us that markets are waiting for a “New World Order” – wasn’t that what was agreed at Bretton Woods? Was Nixon in on this plot, was he tricked, was it a coincidence that Kissinger was with Nixon at Camp David (and who knows, who else) the weekend before they created their ‘plan’ to default on Bretton Woods? No one knows, but we can certainly analyze current data.
For a little perspective, we must understand the history of the world from an American perspective, after World War 2. WW2 was the defining event that shaped the 20th and 21st century. The best perspective for any American businessman, investor, or trader – is to READ THIS BOOK: IBM and the Holocaust. This book is a MUST READ for any Forex trader, stock investor, or anyone who wants to understand how the world ‘really’ works: IBM and the Holocaust.
This is New York Times Bestseller with well over 1 Million copies sold. It’s a well documented, research gold mine. After reading this book, you can say that you understand more about world politics than Political Science professors. This is the reality of the way the world really works, which is NOT taught in school. Through the book, you’ll see how the founder of IBM (Watson) not only enabled the Nazi regime to expand economically and manage the holocaust, he was Hitler’s personal friend (if you can say, Hitler had a friend), receiving the 2nd most prestigious medal of honor offered by the Nazi’s in that time.
So what does this have to do with Forex? Two things. First, this laid the foundation for Bretton Woods and the Euro. The Euro is practically a derivative of the US Dollar. That’s why countries such as the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, and others – stayed out of the Euro. The Euro is the financial end result of the Marshall Plan which was designed to ensure the US Dollar was THE world reserve currency. Second, by seizing Germany as a vassal state, the US-UK “Axis” cemented its control over Europe, the highest economic prize across the pond. That’s because in Europe itself, Germany has always been the ‘strongest’ state, being the biggest producer and economic leader of Northern countries, whereas Southern Europe has been plagued by debt, complicated politics, and other issues (like African refugees floating to ‘the promised land’ or the Mafia hiding Nuclear waste in Italy & Ukraine, Terrorism (Real terrorism, not this ‘fabricated’ terrorism, etc.)
To add to the spoils of war, Project Paperclip brought top Nazi scientists (most notably, Von Braun) without which NASA programs in the past 60 years would not have been possible. Interestingly, this was also a period where the CIA was created, leading to the current global survelleince society we have today. Planned and organized in London, executed and accounted for in New York & Washington, all for the benefit of various international multi-ethnic owners (some American, some Dutch, Swiss, French, Italian, German, Russian, British, Israeli, etc.)
Fast forward to 2016 – during World War 2, IBM, the most sophistocated, largest, powerful computer company in the world was feeding the Nazi war machine. What are computer companies (think Google, Facebook, Microsoft) doing today in Europe? In London? Google, Facebook, Microsoft, all have strong relationships with the DOD (Department of Defense).
It was Hitler that first wrote famously the words “New World Order” – and now this same ‘goal’ is the solution to market microstructure illiquidity, volatility, wide spreads, and huge price swings? It seems that over the past 100 years really, not much has really changed, it is the same group of banks pulling our nose (historically speaking), whether they’re funding Hitler or Clinton, whoever wins, nothing seems to change. In war there are no winners, only victims. There’s a popular banking advertisement ‘banks compete – you win’ – it should be ‘When countries compete, banks win’ – and this is most obvious in the Forex market, where such a move in the GBP/USD can be a quick 10 or 20 yard-bagger for a major bank who is on the front of the order. And all this commotion- banking profits all the way to the New World Order!
And – according to this book The Mind of Hitler – written by a Psychoanalyst, Hitler was not only supported and financed by the Rothschilds – he WAS a Rothschild! They tried this NWO once before, maybe this is attempt 2, their ‘trump’ card. Pun intended.
