@newstracker #Russia – Russia called the killing of its ambassador to Turkey on Monday “a provocation aimed at disrupting the normalisation” of foreign relations between two countries and the “peace process in Syria”. - Both countries condemned the assassination as an act of terrorism with a Russian delegation set to arrive in Turkey today to work on a joint investigation into Mr Karlov’s death. - Mr Karlov was shot on Monday by a former riot policeman disguised as one of his bodyguards during a photo exhibition at Ankara. - #Turkey remains in a state of emergency following a failed coup in Jul that led to tens of thousands of arrests in the following months.

@Newton I listened to the #JimRickards interview again on #RealVision. At 24Min mark he mentions that #Russia defaulted on ruble-denominated debt in 1998 in addition to external debt. Now, why would you do that? ... Interesting question!

@nicholaslepan The Egyptian government is considering signing a currency swap agreement with #Russia, following in the footsteps of its agreement with China in October, an senior Finance Ministry official. #China and #Egypt on December 6 concluded an 18 billion yuan (US$2.62 billion) three-year bilateral currency swap, a move that importers and economists said would facilitate trade and improve foreign currency liquidity in cash-strapped Egypt. http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/egypt-plans-currency-swap-russia

@MiningBookGuy @Brendan - i'm on board with $ARL.AX (thx @PamplonaTrader!) While I'm still learning more about the nickel-cobalt deposit, I think $ARL.AX has an opportunity to do a new study that focuses on higher-grade cobalt sections. But the real story is "what happens if SHTF in the $DRC?" This is a real concern... same type of concern for #platinum in #SouthAfrica, #palladium in #Russia. Take note that $SBGL was shrewd and bought $SWC BEFORE massive disruption. IF something goes wrong in #DRC, I think it's natural to look for SCALE in SAFE jurisdictions...not tiny, high-grade #cobalt plays. There's real grand-slam potential here because of #geopolitics. $ARL.AX is going to get more attention. Anyway, I'm on board with that part of the story. But $ARL.ax is intriguing for other reasons @PamplonaTrader brought up. Keep in mind they have an advanced #gold #zinc project and early stage nickel exploration, all in #Australia. Basically, 'going beyond cobalt', $ARL.AX is intriguing for many reasons. But the cobalt aspect (and ridiculous valuation) pulled me in

@Leon Reading the attached article from Glenn Greenwald one gets the impression that U.S. #politics just endlessly replays the same debates, conflicts, and tactics. Two vital points stand out here: 1) the key to sustain fears over foreign adversaries is depicting them as all-powerful and ubiquitous; and 2) once that images takes root, few will be willing to question the propaganda for fear of beinng accused of siding with the Foreign Evil. #Russia #Trump https://theintercept.com/2017/02/23/the-increasingly-unhinged-russia-rhetoric-comes-from-a-long-standing-u-s-playbook/

@Leon London-based bullion broker Sharps Pixley, formerly owned by Deutsche Bank, has suggested that #Russia's #gold reserves could overtake #China's by the end of this year. Here's the final takeaway: "..both China and Russia see gold as an important element in the global financial system. China has reportedly called for gold to be included in the basket of currencies which makes up the #IMF's Special Drawing Rights (SDR). Certainly Russia's President Putin is a gold believer. The Chinese hierarchy is perhaps a little more circumspect in its open support for gold, but both nations are keen to see the US #dollar dominance of world trade - particularly with respect to #oil and #gas - depleted and see gold as one of the tools for helping them achieve this objective." www.sharpspixley.com/articles/lawrie-williams-russias-gold-reserves-could-overtake-chinas-this-year_264838.html

@Goldfinger Watch $Russia. Putin has historically crushed dissent with tough prison sentences and assassinations. A bit tougher to do when millions are involved in dissenting.... Navalny gets 15 days jail and fine. Lets see what happens when he gets out.

@Goldfinger You can see how quickly the Russian state mobilizes, very powerful police force and secret police forces and they are aggressive. Very much unlike Middle Eastern countries which saw revolutions after Arab Spring. People quickly overwhelmed unmotivated police and military in Egypt for example, only die hard regime members kept fighting when it was clear the will of the people was behind the revolt. Also US had strong influence in Egypt. US has little influence in $Russia and Putin has a strong and numerous base.

@MiningBookGuy @Stocksluice - i'm pretty much in agreement with your thoughts. I'm not sure if #Russia and #China will become full-on allies because of this. But #CentralBanks #PhysicalGold is a key overlap for various countries that COULD be "the story" of the next ~5 years or so, with #China / #Russia being a key part of the story

@Leon Why #gold is central to China's future trade-settlement policy and how it gives the yuan a golden guarantee. "China provides the facility to convert yuan into physical gold in the Shanghai market through the Shanghai Futures Exchange. This gives an exporter of raw materials to China a sound-money option instead of being paid in yuan or dollars." #NorthKorea might become the trigger for that event! #oil #Russia https://mises.org/blog/chinas-plan-subvert-global-dollar-standard

@MiningBookGuy @Goldfinger - ok, i'll be checking intermittently the rest of the day to continue to the interesting #Japan / #GroundZeroCrisis discussion. If we're honing in on #demographics, #Russia is easily most 'at risk'. Yes, #Russia and #Japan are the extreme outliers in terms of important economies with poor #demographics. So I can briefly go through some of my opinion on each: #Japan - #demographics and #CentralBanks intervention are both serious issues. I don't really think their intertwined. I really think pretty much everything else in #Japan 'works', and arguably #Japan is more prepared to deal with #crisis from a cultural standpoint than any other country in the world. I don't think their own demographic issue is 'urgent'... #Russia - the real blow was the steep fall in #oil prices starting in 2014. This already 3 years of a BRUTAL recession/depression in #Russia, that is surprisingly not discussed in the mainstream. Seems the #Russia propaganda machine is working. The thing is, #Russia can be 'ground zero' of the crisis in multiple ways. One is the potential (ongoing?) #hacking around the world, and general #FinancialTerrorism ability. I hat-tip #JimRickards for this (I think it's documented in multiple books of his), and it's a different form of a crisis that comes out of #Russia. But more importantly, the combination of #Russia #oil / #geopolitics / #politics / #demographics issues are MUCH more intertwined (basically unique) in the world. They NEED to do something FAST. This is well documented by some #geopolitics analysts, and still mostly missing from mainstream discussion. This leads right into #Europe ...who gets voted into countries like #France (done) / #Germany (coming in october) is part of this story... (1/2)

@MiningBookGuy @Goldfinger - as i'm writing this, there are so many factors at play that it probably wouldn't be the best ongoing #index talk in this manner. So as a quick follow-up post, #geopolitics getting intertwined with #finance makes me believe that the #Europe / #Russia connection is more of a potential of 'ground zero' of a crisis than #Japan. even more so because supposed contrarians are beating the #Japan drum constantly...i think there's somewhat of a #BlindSpot with people that specialize so much in one area (ex. #finance), are haven't tried hard enough to bring in multiple factors. Anyway, this isn't a full argument by any means, but thought I'd add these additional elements to the discussion. There are many other areas of the world that I think are equally or more likely to be 'ground zero' for a #crisis (and honestly, I'm not sure if it happens in the near-term, at least in terms of being 2008 in scale) (2/2) #GroundZeroCrisis

@MiningBookGuy @NickZed - you can see some #Macro tagged discussion in that room (kind of kickstarted by @JT, was a great idea! https://ceo.ca/macro?0601a682943c ) the #China #gold #CentralBanks question is a big one. While there's a chance there could be a 'new monetary norm' in the near future, one could also look at it simply as a #hedge, just like us as individuals. In any case, I 100% believe that #China is under-reporting their #gold holdings ( #PhysicalGold ), while #Russia is likely reporting accurately (as both countries are accumulating simultaneously on a regular basis). So much more to say...but will leave it at that for now, and include an interesting segment from the #Korelin Weekend Report shared earlier (thanks @Excelsior!). this is segment 6 from Jeff Christian, with his thoughts on #China #India #PhysicalGold demand: http://www.kereport.com/wp-content/uploads/0513-2-2.mp3

@MiningBookGuy The Cost of Fixing Russia’s Economy May 12, 2017 Putin must choose between trying to save the economy and saving himself. https://geopoliticalfutures.com/cost-fixing-russias-economy/ #Russia #Putin #Geopolitics #GeopoliticalFutures @Goldfinger @thenewjew - i didn't see this new article until just now. I think what @thenewjew mentioned as #Japan potentially being the kindling for a #groundzerocrisis as interesting. But going back to #demographics, i think this article provides some evidence for #demographic problems being more urgent in #Russia than #Japan. In addition, I think one could say that #Russia's cultural history is at least as 'open' to extreme disruption as #Japan's. #Japan is more important to the world from a pure financial sense than #Russia. But in so many other ways, #Russia can be a powder-keg in the coming years, and who knows if #Putin will be overthrown if he can't get a handle on what's described in the article (very much related to low #oil prices). BTW, I do like this #GeopoliticalFutures free email. But it does seem very biased towards the #UnitedStates, and that needs to be taken into consideration. #macro

@MiningBookGuy @Brendan - great comment, and I even think that's a good example to use. And interestingly, I'm down on #Russia as well, but COULD be convinced otherwise with the proper promotion. And as an #Africa example, I was shocked how well the $GXU #promotions worked in #Niger, because I consider #Niger one of the most dangerous places in #WestAfrica (even with the mention of the history of top security specific to AREVA, which is true). That's a big credit to CEO.CA and Jonathan Roth (and many others involved with that one!)

@MiningBookGuy @FundamentalAnalysis - I can't remember everything on #PGMs #Palladium / #Platinum promotion right now. But I guarantee you that Rick Rule and Robert Friedland (among others) were talking them up for a while...and then somewhere along the line, it disappeared. It COULD mean they are a great opportunity here. But the main point is that for many others, it was a main focus of opportunity, and then 'sentiment' clearly shifted elsewhere (but I think many people forget how various experts really were excited about #PGMs in the near-term, regardless of what we think). It doesn't help that the main #PGMs jurisdictions are BOTH going through further negative momentum at the moment as well, without anyone talking about extreme supply-shock (ie, #Russia and #SouthAfrica) #mbgtrends
