Anyway hear those wild rumors about this bank holiday? (for those of you that dont know what a bank holiday is or think a bank holiday is just a day that the bank is closed its not that simple. A bank holiday is the same thing that happened when FDR devalued the gold in the 1930s) http://www.marketwatch.com/story/schultz-paints-bleak-picture-of-future "Some U.S. embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies; enough to last them a year. Some embassies are being sent enormous amounts of U.S. cash to purchase currencies from those governments, quietly. But not pound sterling. Inside the State Dept., there is a sense of sadness and foreboding that 'something' is about to happen ... within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days." This article is dated in June, but now Harry Schultz is saying this bank holiday is going to happen on either Aug 24 or 26. Now Harry Schultz is pretty credible, but so far he is the only source of this information. We cant find anyone else(credible at least) to give us similar information.
