Time/Date stamp it. May 26, 2009 I think this will be the month where everything spirals out of control. There will be a rush into the dollar and U.S. Treasuries from all over the world. Once this happens, there's no easy way to reel it in, and no amount of jawboning, even eloquent jawboning, will restore the faith. Cash is king. It really is SHTF time. Buckle up, buttercups. * We are well on our way to a global depression. Dollar will hold up well, commodities will tank (there is an OPEC meeting where they are trying cut supplies because of a glut - and Rio Tinto just cut iron ore prices 33%). Unemployment rate in Western nations will exceed 13% w/in 9 months. Places like Ireland and Eastern Europe will see 20%+ unemployment. See you all on the other side of the mountain.
