HOARDING OF GOLD AND SILVER

JAMES 5:1-3
1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.(IN 1 HR THE STOCK MARKETS WORLDWIDE WILL CRASH)
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

EZEKIEL 7:19
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed:(CONFISCATED) their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

LUKE 2:1-3
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3  And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

13  And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.

Gross Says China Shares Likely to Fall Up to 6% at Friday's Open-John Gittelsohn-Updated on January 7, 2016 — 4:17 PM EST-bloomberg

Bill Grosssays China’s stock markets are likely to drop 5 percent to 6 percent when they open Friday, after trading was stopped for the second day this week because falling shares tripped a circuit breaker.“Based on the ETF in the United States, China is expected to be down 5 or 6 percent,” Gross, co-manager of the $1.3 billion Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television with Tom Keene, echoing comments on China’s volatility from Allianz SE’s Mohamed El-Erian. “It depends on whether the Chinese are good to their word. China is an artificial market.”Chinese regulators suspended a rule that forced local stock exchanges to shut Thursday. The move added to worry that policy makers are struggling with how to contain the months-long turmoil in its financial markets as growth slows for the world’s second-largest economy.Global stocks headed for their worst start to a year in at least 28 years, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping almost 400 points on Thursday, as turmoil emanating from China spread around the world and billionaire George Soros warned that a larger crisis may be brewing. Comments by Soros exacerbated market jitters after he told an economic forum in Sri Lanka that global markets are facing a crisis and investors need to be very cautious.Central banks, especially in places like China, have been manipulating economies, artificially driving up asset prices and setting up markets for a fall, according to Gross. Investors should probably seek safe havens, such as Treasuries, to ride out the current turmoil, and expect long-term low returns with global economies headed for protracted slow growth, he said.-More Turmoil-Other analysts also expect further turmoil when Chinese markets reopen as investors race to preserve their money and regulators seek stability.“We should tighten our seat belt,” El-Erian, who is chief economic adviser at Allianz and also a columnist for Bloomberg View, said on Bloomberg TV earlier in the day. “I expect tomorrow is going to be a very volatile day in the Chinese markets, as the retail sector tries to exit and government entities try to buy.”Pressure to get out of Chinese markets probably is coming from insiders who were prohibited from selling under a ban imposed in July by the China Securities Regulatory Commission, according to Scott Minerd, global chief investment officer at Guggenheim Partners.“Chinese regulators are likely to extend the ban beyond this week in response to the current selloff,” Minerd, who oversees about $240 billion, said in an e-mail response to questions. “But as expiring restrictions enable market participants to finally escape unwanted positions, a selloff is inevitable. Until China’s market is free from political interference, these kinds of swings are to be expected.”.

$30 Oil Just Got Closer as WTI Slides to 12-Year Low on China-Mark Shenk-Updated on January 7, 2016 — 4:09 PM EST-bloomberg

Oil dropped to the lowest in 12 years as turmoil in China’s markets pushes crude closer to $30 a barrel. West Texas Intermediate crude fell 2.1 percent on concern that the economic slowdown in the world’s biggest commodity consumer is worsening. The rout eased after China’s regulator suspended a circuit-breaker rule that halted trading automatically. Saudi Arabia is considering selling a stake in its state-owned company, which controls more than a tenth of the global oil market, Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s deputy crown prince, said in an interview with The Economist."This is going to be a painful couple of months no matter what happens," Scott Roberts, portfolio manager and co-head of high yield who manages $2.7 billion at Invesco Advisers Inc. in Atlanta, said by phone. "The question now is whether the slowdown in China will reduce demand for gasoline and diesel."Oil capped the biggest two-year loss on record in 2015, exceeding the slump driven by the Asian economic crisis from 1997 to 1998 that sent Brent to $9.55 and WTI to $10.35. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries effectively abandoned output limits last year, adding to the global glut. Crude stockpiles at Cushing, Oklahoma, the delivery point for the U.S. benchmark oil, rose to a record, government data showed Wednesday.WTI for February delivery dropped 70 cents to settle at $33.27 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It was the lowest close since February. Prices touched $32.10, the lowest level since Dec. 29, 2003. Total volume traded was 45 percent higher than the 100-day average at 2:45 p.m. The most-traded option on Nymex gave holders the right to sell February futures at $30 amid record volume for the put.Brent for February settlement slipped 48 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $33.75 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. It was the lowest close since June 2004. The European benchmark was at a 48-cent premium to WTI on ICE.The global economy will sputter along this year as China’s slowdown prolongs a commodity slump, the World Bank said Wednesday. The Washington-based development bank lowered its forecast for 2016 growth to 2.9 percent, from a 3.3 percent projection in June, according to its bi-annual Global Economic Prospects report."Even the biggest Pollyanna in the world now knows there is trouble brewing in China," Stephen Schork, president of the Schork Group Inc. in Villanova, Pennsylvania, said by phone. Crude supplies at Cushing expanded for a ninth week to 63.9 million barrels last week, according to Energy Information Administration data released Wednesday. The hub has a working capacity of 73 million barrels. Nationwide supplies are more than 120 million barrels above the five-year average.-Massive Oversupply-"The market is very focused on the risk of a hard landing in China and emerging markets, which is a replay of August," Mike Wittner, head of oil-market research in New York at Societe Generale SA, said by phone. "Heightened fears about China come as we face massive oversupply and no sign that this will ease in the next six months." Gasoline stockpiles climbed to 232 million barrels in the week ended Jan. 1, the highest since March, according to the EIA. Supplies of distillate fuel, the category that includes diesel and heating oil, climbed 6.3 million barrels to 159.4 million, the most since February 2011.February gasoline futures dropped 1.4 percent to $1.146 a gallon, the lowest close since February 2009. Diesel for February delivery declined 1.4 percent to $1.0656, the lowest settlement since July 2004.A potential initial public offering is under review for Saudi Arabian Oil Co., also known as Aramco, Salman, told the Economist. A decision will probably be taken in the next few months, he said, without giving further details. Aramco could rival Apple Inc. as the world’s biggest listed company. It is solely responsible for tapping the world’s second-largest crude reserves.

The stock selloff is happening in a parallel universe-Yahoo Finance By Rick Newman-jan 7,16- yahoonews

Do we all live in China now? Investors could be excused for thinking that, given that arcane indicators such as a Chinese manufacturing index and the value of the Chinese yuan are inducing nauseating drops in the U.S. stock market -- the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed nearly 400 points lower Thursday. And the surprise halt to trading in the latest Chinese session, a mere 30 minutes after markets opened, has thrown U.S. and European markets into a tailspin.Last we checked, however, the Dow Jones and S&P 500 indexes were composed of U.S. companies that might do some business in China, but still earn the vast majority of their revenue elsewhere. And elsewhere, economic fundamentals are looking way better than the gloomy start to this year’s trading would suggest.The U.S. economy will probably grow around 2.5% this year, which isn’t great, but is a sustainable pace that seems nowhere near overheating. The economy can progress at that measured pace for a long time before the next downturn occurs. Here’s some more good news about the U.S. economy:* Employers have been creating an average of 220,000 new jobs per month for the last year. That robust pace seems likely to continue when the latest job numbers come out on Friday. * Layoffs are at very low levels, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Most workers have good job security, which boosts confidence. * Car sales are on fire, hitting record levels in 2015. Purchasing a car is a big financial commitment, one U.S. consumers are obviously comfortable making. * American homeowners have recovered nearly all the equity lost during the housing bust. Overall net worth, which also includes financial assets, is close to record levels. * The once-demolished housing market is stable again, with modest price increases, low mortgage rates, loosening credit standards and more inventory coming on the market.Meanwhile, things are improving in Europe as well, though more slowly than here at home. Euro-area unemployment is inching down, confidence is improving and a string of back-to-back recessions appears to be over. Greece, the biggest source of financial turmoil in Europe, is back in the convalescent ward, with an ugly but workable bailout in place.Nobody thinks the U.S. or European economies are in high gear, and bears point to weakening corporate profits, tighter monetary policy by the Federal Reserve and a shrinking share of adult Americans who are even in the work force. All valid reasons for caution—but not for plunging markets. “As far as the domestic economy is concerned, we see growth continuing,” Wells Fargo wrote in a recent note to clients. “Downside volatility caused by fear and uncertainty creates buying opportunities, in our opinion.”It takes an iron stomach to buy stocks when markets are falling, of course, but it’s easier to take a look around, assess whether your local economy seems imperiled, and if it’s not, relax. Markets don't always reflect real economic performance, but they do experiment with rationality now and then.Rick Newman’s latest book is Liberty for All: A Manifesto for Reclaiming Financial and Political Freedom.

S&P 500 Caps Worst-Ever Start to Year on China Woes, Oil Slump-Jeremy Herron-Oliver Renick-OJRenick-Updated on January 7, 2016 — 4:29 PM EST-bloomberg

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index capped its worst-ever four-day start to a year, while gold rallied with the yen as turmoil in China spread around the world and billionaire George Soros warned that a larger crisis may be brewing.The U.S. equities benchmark ended the first four days of 2016 lower by 4.9 percent, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has erased more than 900 points so far this year. A measure of global shares wrapped up a four-day slide of 5.2 percent, its worst start in records back to 1998. Selling in global equities began in China after the central bank weakened the yuan an eighth day. Crude settled at a 12-year low, and copper dipped below $2 for the first time since 2009. The yen reached a four-month high.“China devaluing its currency sparks concern that the global growth engine is starting to slow and that creates a dump of any high-flying stocks or anything people perceive as risk,” said Yousef Abbasi, a market strategist at Jones Trading Institutional Services in New York. “When you start to worry about growth, you have crude oil down and it all ties together. It’s the new year and people are scratching their heads, they’re not quite ready to buy the dip.”Fresh concern that China’s slowdown will hamper global growth has wiped $2.5 trillion off the value of global equities this year, as the nation’s tolerance for a weaker currency is viewed as evidence policy makers are struggling to revive an economy that’s the world’s biggest user of resources. U.S. crude’s tumble toward $30 a barrel heightened fears of disinflation and fueled concern that junk-rated energy producers won’t be able to stay solvent.Concern briefly eased after the China Securities Regulatory Commission announced the suspension of a new stock circuit-breaker that forced local exchanges to shut for the second day this week before the move gave way to anxiety that policy makers are struggling with how to contain the months-long turmoil in its financial markets.“Chinese equity markets are highly volatile right now and anything they do to potentially stabilize that market improves the outlook for U.S. equities,” Krishna Memani, chief investment officer at Oppenheimer Funds Inc. in New York, said by phone. “They don’t have a whole lot of experience controlling and monitoring markets and they’ve been going about it ham-handedly making the situation far worse than it needs to be.”-Stocks-The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index slid 2.4 percent at 4:15 p.m in New York. The index is down 4.9 percent this year, its worst start in data going back to 1928. The MSCI All-Country World Index fell for a fourth day, bringing its slide this year to 5.2 percent.China’s devaluation revived the angst that sent financial markets into turmoil last summer, driving U.S. stocks to three-month lows Wednesday in a selloff led by commodity producers. Comments by Soros exacerbated market jitters after he told an economic forum in Sri Lanka today that global markets are facing a crisis and investors need to be very cautious.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slid 2.2 percent. The rout this year in Europe surpassed 5 percent, as Germany’s DAX fell below 10,000 for the first time since October. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index retreated 2.1 percent. Benchmark stock indexes in Australia, Japan, Singapore and Thailand all lost more than 2 percent.-China-The Hang Seng China Enterprises gauge of mainland shares listed in Hong Kong tumbled 4.2 percent, its lowest close since October 2011. The Shanghai Composite Index tumbled 7.3 percent before trading was suspended. New circuit breakers, which kicked in on Monday, have been criticized by analysts for exacerbating declines as investors scramble to exit positions before getting locked in by the halts.After the halt, the securities regulator announced rules to limit selling by major shareholders when a ban expires this week. Later, the regulator suspended a new stock circuit-breaker, signaling that the country’s leadership may reconsider or change the system.-Currencies-The dollar slumped, snapping its longest streak of gains since September, as the upheaval in China weighed on the outlook for higher rates in the U.S. The greenback reached its lowest since August versus the yen.The yen, which has been the best-performing major currency so far this year amid the demand for safe-haven assets, rose 0.6 percent to 117.77 per dollar, after touching 117.33, the strongest since Aug. 24.- Commodities- Oil dropped to the lowest in 12 years as turmoil in China’s markets pushes crude closer to $30 a barrel on concern that the economic slowdown in the world’s biggest commodity consumer is worsening. . West Texas Intermediate crude fell 2 percent to $33.29 a barrel.Copper futures fell below $2 a pound for the first time in more than six years as a slump across industrial metals deepened. The metal for March delivery tumbled as much as 4.7 percent to $1.99 a pound before settling at $2.022, down 3.2 percent. A gauge of world mining companies tumbled to the lowest since 2004 on Thursday, led by Freeport-McMoRan Inc. and Anglo American Plc.Cocoa for March delivery fell for a fifth day to an eight-month low on ICE Futures U.S. in New York. The Bloomberg Commodity Index rose 0.1 percent, rebounding from what would have been the lowest close since 1999 as crude erased losses.-Bonds-Treasuries fluctuated as speculation that China will sell U.S. debt and the prospect of more Federal Reserve interest-rate increases limited the securities’ appeal as a haven. Yields on 10-year notes fell two basis points to 2.15 percent after touching the lowest since October. Global economic weakness has boosted government debt to start 2016, pushing yields back below levels from when the Fed lifted rates Dec. 16.Benchmark 10-year municipal-bond yields extended their steepest decline in almost four years. The appeal of munis and other fixed-income assets may grow after concerns that China’s slowdown will hamper global growth have wiped $2.5 trillion off the value of global equities this year.-Emerging Markets-Developing-nation stocks sank to the lowest since 2009, with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index tumbling 2.9 percent. South Africa’s rand weakened to a record low against the dollar. The Ibovespa tumbled for a second day as a plunge in Brazilian industrial production added to concern that demand for the nation’s exports will weaken further as China’s economy slows.Benchmark gauges in South Africa, Thailand, the Philippines and Abu Dhabi slid more than 2.5 percent and those for Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Qatar tumbled at least 3 percent. Russian markets were closed for a holiday.A gauge tracking 20 emerging-market currencies dropped for a fifth day, capping its longest losing streak since October.

Shanghai Fund Manager Dumps All Holdings in ‘Insane’ Market-Bloomberg News-Updated on January 6, 2016 — 11:57 PM EST

A Shanghai fund dumped all its holdings as Chinese shares tumbled and triggered a circuit-breaker that halted trading in the world’s second-biggest stock market.“This is insane,” Chen Gang, chief investment officer at Shanghai Heqi Tongyi Asset Management Co., said in an interview on Thursday. “We were forced to liquidate all our holdings this morning,” said Chen, whose firm manages about 300 million yuan ($45.5 million).China’s CSI 300 Index plunged 7.2 percent before trading was halted by automatic circuit-breakers for the second time this week, after a weaker-than-estimated yuan fixing fueled concern that slowing economic growth is prompting authorities to guide the currency lower. Many private funds and hedge funds in China have agreements with investors spelling out mandatory liquidation levels if their holdings drop below a certain value.Chinese regulators have imposed a limit on the amount of stock major corporate shareholders can sell as authorities move to curb the nation’s market rout. The CSRC capped the size of stakes that major investors are allowed to sell at 1 percent of a company’s shares for three months effective Jan. 9, the regulator said in a statement on Thursday. The restriction replaces an existing six-month ban on any secondary market stock sales that is due to expire Friday, it said.-‘Couldn’t Be Worse’-Chen, who commented before the CSRC announced its new caps, said he “won’t consider getting back into the market until that overhang is gone and CSRC improves its circuit-breaker system, for instance by extending the 15-minute break to half an hour.”The Shanghai Heqi Tongyi manager, whose fund started mid-year in 2015, regretted the timing of its launch and said it “couldn’t be worse.” Chen isn’t alone in criticizing the circuit-breaker rule introduced Monday, which many say exacerbates a liquidity squeeze as investors rush for the exits before trading halts kick in. Under the new rule, a drop of 5 percent suspends trading for 15 minutes, while a decline of 7 percent halts the market for the rest of the day.“A trading break of 15 minutes or even longer wouldn’t ease their nerves or get them a clear picture of the fundamentals,” said Polar Zhang, a Beijing-based analyst at BOC International Holdings Ltd. “On the contrary, it’s draining liquidity as everybody tries to get out of the door before the door is closed. ”If CSRC doesn’t improve the mechanism, Zhang said he expects to cut trading volume by 20 percent.About 100 stock-focused Chinese private funds have lost more than 10 percent in the most recent month, according to Howbuy Investment Management Co. , which tracks such data. Most of the funds most recently updated numbers in December. Almost 1,300 Chinese hedge funds liquidated amid China’s $5 trillion stock selloff during the summer as the value of their equity holdings fell below mandatory levels agreed with investors, according to Howbuy.

 Wall Street Traders Can't Afford to Sleep During Global Turmoil-Dani Burger-Anna-Louise Jackson-January 7, 2016 — 4:12 PM EST-bloomberg

With China’s stock market in disarray, American investors are finding out just how long their day can last -- before they even get to work.“This morning when I rolled over in my bed at 4 a.m. to check the markets and saw what happened in China and in U.S. futures I thought, ‘Oh, here we go,’” said Howard Ward, a Wall Street veteran of four decades who oversees $42.7 billion as the chief investment officer of growth equities at Gamco Investors Inc. “I’m getting too old for this.”As the stunning selloff in China caused two shutdowns and convulsed financial markets around the world this week, Wall Street traders have been left to look for whatever clues they can to make sense of it all. Once-obscure events like the yuan currency fixing, which comes four hours after the New York Stock Exchange closes, are now being obsessed over by traders everywhere with a mix of anticipation and dread.To appreciate just how focused investors are on Shanghai, look at Thursday’s reaction to news that China would suspend the week-old circuit-breaker system that the night before halted trading after 29 minutes. Down 1.8 percent before the news, the S&P 500 went straight up for 90 minutes as investors realized they’d be spared the sight of the Chinese stock market opening, plunging and then slamming shut. The boost was temporary, as anxiety grew that regulators are improvising as they try to stabilize markets.“Regulators there have bad ideas,” Ward said. “The circuit breakers were poorly designed and were designed almost to instill panic, which is exactly what happened. There was no question that as soon as trading opened it wouldn’t last long. Talk about yelling fire in a crowded theater.” Prior to the suspension investors had little doubt about how things would go when Shanghai reopened Friday.“It’s confidence-sapping when a market is closed,” said Ralph Schlosstein, the chief executive officer of Evercore Partners, in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “This is going to be everyone on auto-dial to sell their stock. That’s not a good thing.”The start of 2016 has been one of the fastest retreats from risk ever by investors coming back from New Year’s holiday. Over four days, more than $2.5 trillion has been wiped from the value of global equities, volatility in the broadest stock gauges has jumped 30 percent or more, and 9 percent was shed from the price of oil. Almost everything -- from junk bonds to cocoa and coffee -- has tumbled.Adding to frustration among American traders was a sense that not much that is happening in China’s stock market was relevant to either the Chinese or U.S. economies, let alone prescriptive for how equities should trade in America. Four days into 2016, though, the S&P 500 has plunged more than 5 percent to cap its worst four-day start to a year since records began.“It’s definitely the Asian tail wagging the Western dog right now,” said Eddie Perkin, who helps oversee $311 billion as chief equity investment officer at Eaton Vance Corp. Perkin said looking in on China is the last thing he does before bed and the first after waking up.“I’m not sure that we’ve learned a whole lot new in the last few days, even though we’ve had a lot of volatility,” he said. “There are a lot of technical factors around these circuit breakers and the restrictions on insider selling in China. A week from now, we’ll all be talking about U.S. corporate earnings.”The China Securities Regulatory Commission announced the suspension on its official microblog account on Thursday night. The decision came hours after CSRC officials held an emergency meeting to talk about conditions on the nation’s tumbling stock market, according to a person familiar with the discussions who asked not to be named because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.The nation’s market circuit breakers, which halted exchanges for 15 minutes after a 5 percent drop in the CSI 300 and for the rest of the day after a 7 percent retreat, have been criticized by analysts for exacerbating losses as investors scramble to exit positions before getting locked in.“If it’s somebody who really doesn’t know a lot about China, this is kind of scary. They say, ‘Oh my god, their market can drop 7 percent,’” said Nick Sargen, who helps manage $46.2 billion as chief economist and senior investment adviser for Fort Washington Investment Advisors Inc. “The reason I can be more calm about it is that I follow that market, I can say, listen it’s a cowboy market.”Night owls have been rewarded for at least a year as China’s influence moved action in U.S. stocks to hours when exchanges were closed. In 2015, shares in the S&P 500 swung more during off hours than their small-cap brethren for the first time in at least 15 years. Data compiled by Credit Suisse Group AG measured the difference in price between when exchanges close at 4 p.m. in New York and reopen the next day at 9:30 a.m.“When I look at the news I go, ‘that causes this big of a market move?’ It doesn’t make sense,” said Sargen. “The Chinese stock market sells off, I shrug my shoulders and just say that adds to market volatility. Does it fundamentally alter my view on the global economy or U.S. economy? No.”

EARTHQUAKES

EZEKIEL 37:7,11-14
7  So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.(POSSIBLE QUAKE BRINGS ISRAEL BACK TO LIFE-SO NOISE AND SHAKING-QUAKES WILL ALSO DESTROY ISRAELS ENEMIES)
11  Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12  Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13  And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
