This is not good boys, not good at all.

Ben Bernanke and the rest of the US Federal Reserve bet the farm that they could engage in countless monetary interventions, keep interest rates at zero, and print over $2 trillion in new money without damaging the USís credibility.



They were wrong. Indeed, Germany just fired a major warning shot to the US Federal Reserve.



On Monday, Germany announced that it will be moving a significant portion of its Gold reserves out of storage with the New York Fed and moving them back to Germany.



A few background details.



Germany has the second largest Gold reserves in the world behind the US.
Since the early Ď80s, Germany has stored the largest portion of its Gold reserves with the New York Fed (45% vs. 13% in London, 11% in Paris and the remaining 31% in Frankfurt).
In the fall of last year, German officials began raising the issue of auditing its reserves at the NY Fed.



Why would Germany suddenly decide that it wants to change a policy it has had in place for over 30 years?



More importantly, how did it go from wanting to audit its reserves to actually removing them from the NY Fedís care?



In simple terms, Germany has just announced that it doesnít trust the US Fed.

You would be correct Mudbone. I am seriously debating cashing out of 401k's and taking the penalty. Gold and silver will be king. The dollar will be as useless as a spent casing.

Don't think so. The Chinese have become net sellers of US Treasuries. The Federal Reserve is now the largest holder of Treasuries and buying upper than half of monthly issuance.

The Dutch also announced today they are going to repatriate their gold.
Russia warned today a currency war is breaking out. That's old news.

Bill Gross agrees with Zero Hedge that this is a signal that the central banks are losing trust in each other. Check out Jim Sinclair's site and his thoughts on this momentous development. This is huge. The end game has commenced.

Everyone, you must check Zero Hedge multiple times a day. They are breaking these stories months before the mainstream media (if they even cover this stuff). Very educational as well.

Great post FLTNHUNTER.

Agree. I'm so upset that I lost mine in that boating accident.

That was a joke regarding how willy-nilly the Kenyan administration treats debt.
