THE DOW WAS UP 227 POINTS THURSDAY-YESTERDAY.
HOARDING OF GOLD AND SILVER
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.
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.
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.
16 And he(THE FALSE POPE WHO DEFECTED FROM THE CHRISTIAN FAITH) causeth all,(IN THE WORLD ) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:(MICROCHIP IMPLANT)

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:(WORLD LEADER) for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(6-6-6) A NUMBER SYSTEM (6006006)OR(60020202006)(SOME KIND OF NUMBER IMPLANTED IN THE MICROCHIP THAT TELLS THE WORLD DICTATOR AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER THAT YOU GIVE YOUR TOTAL ALLIGIENCE TO HIM AND NOT JESUS)(ITS AN ETERNAL DECISION YOU MAKE)(YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN DESTINY)(YOU TAKE THE DICTATORS NAME OR NUMBER UNDER YOUR SKIN,YOUR DOOMED TO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND TORMENTS FOREVER,NEVER ENDING MEANT ONLY FOR SATAN AND HIS ANGELS,NOT HUMAN BEINGS).OR YOU REFUSE THE MICROCHIP IMPLANT AND GO ON THE SIDE OF KING JESUS AND RULE FOREVER WITH HIM ON EARTH.YOU CHOOSE,ITS YOUR DECISION.
1 KINGS 10:13-14
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.
14 Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,
16 Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.(A DAYS WAGES FOR A LOAF OF BREAD)

ALERT: Major Signal Preceding Global Stock Market Crashes In 1929, 2000 & 2008 Was Just Triggered!-January 13, 2016-KING WORLD NEWS
MAJOR ALERT: The warning signal preceding global stock market crashes in 1929, 2000 & 2008 was just triggered!-January 13 (King World News) – Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader: Stocks have now suffered two 10% corrections in a short span. This is difficult to quantify, but according to our tests, this has only happened on three other unique dates, in 1929, 2000 and 2008. All of those preceded major bear markets.On a shorter-term basis, a near-majority of our indicators are now oversold or showing extreme pessimism. We’re seeing the most heavily lopsided selling volume in five years according to the Up Volume Ratio.Markets not responding to oversold conditions…The S&P 500 has now corrected 10% from near a 52-week high for the second time in a relatively short span. In the meantime, it had rallied at least 10%.King World News - ALERT: Signal Preceding Stock Market Crashes In 1929, 2000 & 2008 Just Triggered! Action Mirrors 1929, 2000 & 2008 Stock Market Crashes! -Going back to 1928, this has only happened on four other dates, October 1929, May 23, 2000, October 11, 2000 and January 8, 2008. As shown in Figure 3, these were dates that should send a shiver down the spine of any bull (see stunning chart below). KWN SentimenTrader I 1:14:2016-Is this significant? We can’t read much into three unique occurrences, but they were consistent and the pattern is similar.Shorter-term, the selling on Wednesday was over whelming, with more than 90% volume flowing into declining stocks. Over the past 10 days, the Up Volume Ratio has dropped below 28% for the first time in five years.Bottom line, this is one of the more difficult junctures in the 18 years we’ve been publishing. Stocks are objectively oversold but markets are not responding well to that. There are lingering long-term concerns but also many positives when looking at other oversold markets.King World News -This is a throw-your-hands up moment. There are basically three scenarios and we’d give the probabilities like this:* Oversold bounce: 50% * Flush lower then bounce: 30% * Outright collapse of 5%-15%: 20%
Greece, creditors in 'observation round' By Eric Maurice-JAN 14,16-EUOBSERVER
BRUSSELS, Today, 09:29-For their first Eurogroup meeting of the year, on Thursday (14 January), eurozone finance ministers will discuss the state of play of the Greek bailout, with difficult discussions in mind ahead on pension reforms and debt relief.A first version of the pension reform was sent last week to Greece's lenders, the so-called "Quartet" comprised of the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Stability Mechanism and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).The reform will be the centrepiece of the first review of the bailout programme, which is due to start next week, when officials from the Quartet arrive in Athens, probably on Monday (18 January).The conclusion of the review will trigger the unblocking of a new tranche of aid after the €16 billion paid in the summer and autumn.In the meantime, "we can say it's an observation round," an EU official told EUobserver."No side has anything to be upset about, yet," the official said, suggesting that might change when discussions start.-'The hardest part'-Put aside in the autumn, when the priority was stabilising the banking sector and adopting several series of economic, social, fiscal and administrative reforms, the pension reform is a decisive part of the third Greek bailout programme." It is the hardest part. After that, the nirvana starts," the official said.The reform plan presented by the Greek government fuses all existing schemes into one single mechanism. The retirement age will be 67 for workers with at least 15 years of insurance, and 62 with 40 years of insurance.Employers' social security contributions will be raised by 1 percent and the employee's contributions by 0.5 percent. The government said there would be no cuts to the pensions."It's a very ambitious proposal," another EU official said Wednesday. "The merging of funds is a major step ahead."But the creditors are still assessing the details of the reforms, and the devil could be in the numbers.The bailout memorandum agreed last August requires Greece to save around 1 percent of GDP in pension expenditures by 2016, after saving 0.25 percent in 2015.The Greek government says its reaches the targets with the measures taken last year and with the new reform.But creditors insist that Greece reduce its fiscal gap this year but also for 2017 and 2018, and suggest that the impact of the proposed pension reform could be insufficient.-IMF-Concerns that the increase in contributions might have an impact on competitiveness and tax revenues have been echoed by the governor of the Bank of Greece.Some of the creditors, mainly the IMF, insist on further savings to reduce the fiscal gap, including further cuts to pensions."The IMF will be quite tough on pension reforms," the EU source told EUobserver.So far the IMF is not participating in the third bailout, but is still part of the Quartet. It said it would decide whether to stay or not at the end of the upcoming review.In December, the Greek prime minister said the IMF was "not necessary" and that its positions and demands on Greece were "not constructive"."The creditors have to know that we are going to respect the agreement to the letter, but that doesn't mean we are going to succumb to unreasonable and undeserved demands," Tsipras also said early January.But any agreement on the first review will be "done in full total agreement of all institutions concerned, no matter if they are formally part of this review at that stage or not," the second EU official warned.In an interview with Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung, EU monetary affairs commissioner Pierre Moscovici warned Greece not to "play games with the IMF"."For many member countries, not only Germany, the participation of the IMF is an absolute necessity," Moscovici said.-New showdown?-So far, the Greek government, which has only a three-seat majority in the parliament and is faced with growing social protests, has said cutting pensions is its red line."The government will not reduce main pensions for a 12th time, thereby fuelling recession, which undermines the sustainability of the pensions system, as it happened in the past," a Greek government official said.For Athens, the bad state of the pension system is mainly the result of the previous two bailouts."The currently high ratio of pensions expenditure to GDP has been the abrupt and significant decline of the GDP by 25 percent due to the successive Memoranda implemented during the period 2010-2015," the official said.The IF's Europe director, Poul Thomsen, will participate in the Eurogroup meeting Thursday.Discussions with of one of the fund's top officials will tell whether Greece and its creditors are headed for a new showdown.
Rajaratnam and 75 Other Reasons Hedge Funds Are Scared Straight-Katherine Burton-Matt Robinson-Patricia Hurtado-January 14, 2016 — 5:00 AM EST-BLOOMBERG
The ghost of Raj Rajaratnam still haunts hedge funds. Some make employees sign pledges that they’ve not acted on illicit tips, others snoop on their traders with keystroke-reading software. At the compliance meetings everybody has these days, prison isn’t an off-the-wall topic.The illegal-trading probes that netted crooks at more than a dozen funds may have reached an unofficial finale with a whimper last week -- a deal allowing SAC Capital Advisors LLC’s Steven A. Cohen to return to the industry in two years -- but the chill from the fates of Rajaratnam and the 75 others convicted hasn’t faded. The legacy of the crackdown might be a healthy suspicion that Big Brother really is watching.“It’s now been drilled into the public consciousness that insider trading is a high-risk proposition,” said Stephen Crimmins, a lawyer with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from 1987 to 2001 who’s now with the firm Murphy & McGonigle. “Ten years ago, people figured that the odds were pretty good that they wouldn’t get caught.”True, Wall Street’s probably not as spooked as it was just after Rajaratnam’s 2009 arrest and 2011 sentencing to 11 years in prison. The government also alarmed traders by building its case against the billionaire fund manager with wiretaps and informants, tools typically pulled out when the marks are drug dealers or racketeers. One reason there’s less anxiety is the U.S. Supreme Court decision in October to let stand a ruling that overturned two convictions, led to the dismissal of 12 cases and made it harder to prove insider trading by requiring evidence a tip’s recipient knew the leaker got a concrete benefit.But changes in policy and behavior spurred by the indictments, raids and liquidations of the past seven years might be here to stay, even with Cohen, prosecutors’ biggest quarry, having gotten away with a relatively light slap.-‘Watching Headlines’-That’s in part because “there’s a recognition now that if there’s a case against you, that’s already a loss” because of the negative publicity, said Ron Geffner, a partner at Sadis & Goldberg LLP and a former SEC enforcement lawyer who represents hedge funds. Investors pulled millions out of funds and some firms shut down even though charges against their employees were dropped or never even filed.The reverberations have extended to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, whose alumni include convicted insider-traders Rajaratnam, Rajiv Goel and Anil Kumar. It has a renewed focus on business ethics and a required course called Responsibility in Professional Services taught by David Zaring, a former U.S. Justice Department lawyer. “My students do watch the headlines,” he said. “They’re pretty interested in recent prosecutions and seem relatively worried to me, so that’s good news for the government.”Fund compliance officers dial in to more conference calls with analysts than before, and former regulators and prosecutors are popular hires. Consulting firms are getting new business. “We’re seeing a significant spike in terms of hedge funds coming to us not only to have us vet and monitor their employees but also in terms of investigational due diligence on actual deals,” said Julian Moore, senior managing director at K2 Intelligence LLC, which counsels funds on compliance and cyber-security.Some firms monitor e-mail and instant-message communications and have banned personal trading accounts, and are hiring legal advisers to help keep themselves in line. “It’s much more often that we have the founders of a firm, or top principals, in key training sessions,” said Steve Nadel, a partner at Seward & Kissel LLP, which offers regulatory compliance coaching.The regulatory compliance sessions often aren’t subtle, according to hedge-fund employees who’ve attended them. Presentations may include run-downs of the number of insider-traders in prison, photos of white-collar perp walks and snippets of wiretap recordings.-New Crimes-Some of the changes are the products of post-fiscal crisis regulations requiring hedge funds to register with the SEC and create written policies on everything from valuing holdings to employees’ trading in personal accounts. In any event, the funds don’t get a lot of credit for all the care they’re taking to obey the rules. “People aren’t suddenly going to find Jesus,” said James Cox, a professor at Duke University School of Law. “It’s just that in certain eras we put more resources in trying to catch individuals,” and that’s a deterrent.Bad apples will always come up with new ways to commit crimes, such as using computer hackers to access non-public information. “As time passes and memories fade, there will always be some who think they can engage in activities they should know will come back to haunt them,” said former SEC Chairman Harvey Pitt.The feds haven’t pulled up stakes, though most cases growing out of the probes that started around 2007 -- dubbed Perfect Hedge and Matchmaker -- have ended. The government won 80 convictions. SAC agreed to pay a record $1.8 billion in 2013 to resolve a criminal case that alleged six people engaged in insider trading while working there. The SEC accused Cohen of failing to properly supervise a portfolio manager who’s now in prison. At the time, enforcement officials sought a lifetime ban on Cohen running a hedge fund, according to people with knowledge of the situation.Instead, the SEC made the two-year deal, widely viewed as a victory for the founder of a firm that U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara called a “magnet for market cheaters.” (Cohen in 2014 converted SAC into a family office called Point72 Asset Management LLP, and the SEC insisted its supervision of that firm be part of the settlement, according to a person familiar with the matter.)-It’s not clear whether the crackdown was a factor in stock-picking hedge funds’ lackluster returns in recent years. After Rajaratnam’s arrest, those funds gained about 31 percent through the end of last year, trailing the 83 percent jump for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, according to Hedge Fund Research Inc. Equity-focused funds rose 137 percent in the decade before authorities raided Rajaratnam’s firm, compared with a 14 percent S&P decline. The reversal of fortune has drawn questions about whether hedge funds are worth their fees -- typically 2 percent of assets under management and 20 percent of investment gains.One manager who has defied the hedge-fund slump is Cohen. In 2015, when stock funds, on average, made no money, his Point72 was up 15.5 percent, after operating expenses. In 2018, investors may get a chance to put money with him again.
European Investment Bank pauses lending to Volkswagen By Peter Teffer-JAN 14,16-EU OBSERVER
Brussels, Today, 16:31-The European Investment Bank (EIB) is not lending any new money to Volkswagen “for the time being” while the German auto manufacturer is being investigated for its use of defeat devices in emissions tests.“In order to be on the safe side, and also to preserve the interest of the bank and that means also the interest of our shareholders, we have decided to put on hold any new loans to Volkswagen for the time being,” said EIB president Werner Hoyer Thursday (14 January) at a press conference in Brussels.He called the German company “a long-term partner of the bank for many many years”. The EU's bank has invested in various research and development projects. In October it said it had around €1.8 billion in outstanding loans to VW.One of those loans may be involved in the recent scandal, in which Volkswagen installed illegal software that allowed cars to come out of tests as much cleaner than they actually were.“ Whilst our review continues, based on our findings, so far we cannot exclude that there may be a link with a part of a €400 million EIB loan to Volkswagen signed in 2009 – that's Volkswagen Antrieb RDI – and the investigated activities,” said Hoyer.“It still needs to be established whether any part of the loan was misused in that way. The loan was repaid by Volkswagen in full, according to schedule, in 2014,” the bank's president added.He said that according to current information available to the bank “no other EIB operation either repaid or outstanding has a link to the defeat software in any way”.“We were astonished, disappointed and we are now concerned about the allegations, including indications by senior company executives, of improper and possibly fraudulent behaviour by Volkswagen,” added Hoyer.He said the ban on Volkswagen loans is based on “information, findings and recommendations emerging from our own review and from ongoing judicial investigations” and that the bank will review its assessment “on a regular basis”.

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,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
