Once Upon a Time in Afghanistan...

Friend of mine point my attention to this very interesting article for Afghanistan in 1950's and 1960's, with even more interesting pictures:

Once Upon a Time in Afghanistan...


The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge as made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

Greece Bond Yields at Record High following Default Comments

After the disturbing news from / for Belorussian central bank, here you are another disturbing news:


The yield on Greece ten year bonds jumped to 14.40% today and
the two year yield is up to 19.60%


Belarus central bank halts sales of gold for Belarus roubles

From the article:
Belarus' central bank has stopped selling gold to local retail customers for Belarussian roubles (BYR), it said on Friday, after demand for precious metals soared due to expectations of a currency devaluation.

The bank did not explain its decision.

The article is more important than you think.
I don't know how many Belorussians buying gold, but stopping selling gold could mean that the Belorussian Ruble went into event horizon of the inflation collapse, and hyper-inflation is on the way.

I suppose some day we will get same article for USD and EUR.

Silver stretch

very good article by Toby Connor

Gold / Silver ratio update

this chart not suppose to be some deep-thinked analysis, but GSR definitely go in favour of silver.
Silver 1 day

Silver 4h

Silver currently is at the top of the channel. we may expect it to go down, probably to pink line.
Alternatively it will go to blue line (top of previous channel), or to the brown line (bottom of current channel).

In case it go to brown lines, we need to do some more research because Silver may fall back into previous channel and downsize to $34 or $32 could be possible.
