Neither will the Euro, or the stock exchanges.
Many astute observers have been warning of this for two years or more.
The market observers, however, still assume there is some sort of rule book in the fiat banking industry, which will bring the criminal enterprise to its' comeuppance.
Lie. Cheat. Steal. Murder. No Rules - only greed.
Bernanke jumps in, enters more zeros on a computer screen, the debt is transferred to the American people, and all is good until it gets to close to exploding again - when Bernanke jumps in...

Adding to last night’s BBC spot of Mr. Rastani’s truth-telling, we have yet another experienced market trader telling the full-monty of truth:
Here is a piece from that hopefully will make you all understand, once and for all, that this ain’t the 1930′s, and that there is absolutely no way in hell that this Republic is going to make it to November 2012.
Five Banks Account For 96% Of The $250 Trillion In Outstanding US Derivative Exposure; Is Morgan Stanley Sitting On An FX Derivative Time Bomb?
Summary: The five largest banks in the U.S. (JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and HSBC) are carrying $238 TRILLION dollars in derivative exposure. JP Morgan alone is carrying $78 TRILLION in derivative exposure BY ITSELF.
Okay, what the hell is derivative exposure?
What this is referring to are over-the-counter non-exchange traded forward delivery (or “futures”) contracts of various kinds.
I am a futures broker, but I only execute futures contracts on the futures exchanges, namely the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange.
About ten years ago a new “novelty” emerged in the futures business – the so-called “over-the-counter” contracts.
There was a kid in the office I worked in who got wind of this and had all kinds of stars in his eyes about making a killing off of these “OTC” contracts because the brokers’ commissions were not a flat fee but a percent of the contract value.
Here’s the problem with OTC contracts: there is no exchange standing between the buyer and seller as a guarantor.
In my business, when a customer executes a trade on a futures or options contract, it makes no difference who the other guy is on the other side of the trade, be it executed electronically or in the pit.
None of us have to worry for a second about the counterparty on our executions because the EXCHANGE ITSELF stands between ALL transactions as the ultimate guarantor.
The exchange then enforces the financial requirement rules with the Clearing Houses, the Clearing Houses enforce the financial requirement rules with the brokers, and the brokers enforce the financial requirement rules with the customers.
That is the chain of financial responsibility. So, even if a customer bugs out and fails to financially perform on a contract, the contract WILL BE MADE GOOD by extracting the money from the broker, then the Clearing House and finally the Exchange. This massive enforcement buffering is what gives the system integrity.
OTC contracts have no exchange. They are a flipping free-for-all. If someone bugs out on a contract, the poop hits the fan. The counterparty has their pants around their ankles and the broker is caught in the middle.
That’s why when that kid in my office years ago got all starry-eyed, I thought to myself, “I wouldn’t do that OTC crap if you put a gun to my head – no matter what the commissions were. It would be Russian Roulette. Eventually someone would default and it would financially destroy the broker instantly, and perhaps the counterparty as well.”
Let’s take my business – cattle futures. One contract is 40,000 pounds of live cattle. The spot contract settled at $119.725 per hundred pounds today. So, 40,000 pounds X $1.19725 (shift the decimal) = $47,890 total value of the contract.
Since this is an exchange traded instrument, the customer doesn’t really don’t have to worry about default and can go ahead and book that $47,890 today, and it will be offset at a later time, and the net of the entry and exit will be the P&L.
The contract isn’t going to default, so the derivative exposure is limited.
Okay. These banks are carrying these OTC futures contracts with NO exchange to guarantee anything. And they are carrying these contracts largely WITH EACH OTHER.
So JP Morgan might be the long and Goldman Sachs, or some insolvent bank in Europe is the short on the other side.
If these banks default, which is now a mathematical certainty because they are not only insolvent, but insolvent multiple times over and there isn’t enough money in the world to bail them out, there is going to be a cascading default on all of these OTC contracts.
Now look at the value and exposure of these OTC derivatives again: the top 5 banks in the US alone have exposure of $238 TRILLION dollars.
The total GDP of the United States is $14.5 Trillion.
The total GDP of China is $6 Trillion.
The total land mass on earth is 36.8 billion acres. If every acre of land on earth was “sold” for $6467 per acre, that would total $238 Trillion.
JP Morgan BY ITSELF has derivative exposure equal to over FIVE TIMES the value of the entire US GDP.
And no, there will not be a 1:1 offsetting in a collapse, because the collapse will be asymmetrical, and the bankrupt party will first pursue FULL payment on its “longs” (think of these as accounts receivables) while its “shorts” (accounts payable) will only pay out 20 cents on the dollar OR LESS.
In other words, these entities will tear each other apart in a mad dogfight and this dogfight will take the entire world down with it.
AND THE MASSIVELY CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT SECURITIES REGULATORS, BOTH GOVERNMENTAL AND PRIVATE, SAT BY AND WATCHED THIS HAPPEN. That is what happens when you let a group of criminals run a bureaucracy of affirmative action hires to “audit” the financial industry. Scroll down and read my post titled “There Must Be A Reckoning.”
It’s over. There is no coming back from this. The only thing that can happen is a total and complete collapse of EVERYTHING we now know, and humanity starts from scratch.
And if you think that this collapse is going to play out without one hell of a big hot war, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.
Ann Barnhardt – Barnhardt Capital Management, Inc.
I’m going to add to what Ann has explained so well:
By the end of 2007, all the Too-Big-to-Fail (TBTF) banks were writing these things hand-over-fist because they already knew they were in doo-doo.
All this did was put massive leverage into the system…..debt, leveraged upon debt, with no asset value behind much of it.
And here is where it gets truly ugly for my conservative friends who refuse to look at Wall Street as the criminals they are: THEY DID THIS KNOWING FULL WELL THE MAJORITY OF THE DERIVATIVES THEY WERE CREATING WERE FRAUDULENT AND BACKED BY NOTHING.
How do I know this? A myriad of lawsuits filed all over the country with a literal shitton of depositions on discovery. These are not lawsuits filed by merely disgruntled foreclosure victims; these are lawsuits filed by large insurance companies like Allstate and MetLife, and even The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFH) because they all realized far too late that they’d been sold worthless crap.
This is not to mention how adamantly the TBTFs have lobbied against any whiff of the idea of forcing these things onto an exchange where they would be made transparent.
That’s pretty much a tipoff that they’re hiding something very bad. If the used car salesman won’t let you look under the hood, you can be pretty sure there’s something there you won’t like much.
The idea Wall Street had here with creating these fraudulent pieces of toxic waste was that if even a fraction of these ‘paid out’ for them, they could ‘save themselves.’
Unfortunately this doesn’t work when Wall Street runs out of suckers; you know, pension plans, insurance companies, retail investors and other places they could sell these things to without anyone understanding what they were buying.
Most importantly, when they ran out of suckers they could put into home loans they couldn’t afford, this was the beginning of the end and the whole scheme began to unravel.
Even better, our government not only looked the other way when they were made aware of what was going on, they began to aid and abet the criminal activity….because the TBTFs convinced the government that ‘economic meltdown could be avoided’ if they were just given time for the ‘asset values to come back.’
THIS whole game was facilitated by none-other than Hank Paulson. You know, ‘Mr-I-Have-A-Bazooka.’
Our entire global economy is a giant Ponzi Scheme.
Makes Social Security look like a rounding error. This also gives one a better perspective on the stock market movements. (Yeah, 400 point Dow Jones Industrial ranges in a day is a ‘stable market’.)
What the market is now is merely the TBTF banks chasing government cheese. Where is the next bailout coming from? Wherever they THINK it is (and since they push for it, they have a good idea), they front run it and pile in, using HFT to try to position better than the next TBTF.
Who is going to get the next ‘exemption from the law’? Wherever they think THAT is coming next, again, they go ‘all-in’ – thus providing the massive swings in the market with both bonds (treasuries and corporate debt) and stocks.
Any idea that there is ANYTHING left of a ‘free-market’ is a LIE. Wake up and smell the Ponzi conservatives, and stop defending the criminals with your cries of ‘it’s anti-capitalist to protest against Wall Street.’
It’s not about your neighbor getting a free house, it’s about massive, global, legalized financial rape.
Wall Street a/k/a the Too-Big-To-Fails are chasing corruption. They’re chasing legalized theft sanctioned by our government and you can watch it in real-time every day….just pull up a stock chart. Any stock chart.
Have a nice day.
Perhaps now you will start screaming STOP THE LOOTING & START PROSECUTING!

If you look at how much we are being charged then you will put up a stink.

For the $16 TRILLION that the Federal Reserve gave to foreign banks that would be:
at 1.25% interest rate is $200 billion per year,
for the 312 million residents in the US is $641 per man, woman, and child.

For the $238 TRILLION dollars in derivative exposure that would be:
at 1.25% interest rate is $2.975 trillion per year,
for the 312 million residents in the US is $9,535 per man, woman, and child.

Why should we taxpayers pay for foreign banks to use our money in which the Rothschild family receives all this for themselves doing nothing.

WAKE UP and file criminal charges against everyone involved INCLUDING Congress as they have failed to take IMMEDIATE action for the recent Federal Reserve AUDIT!
First Ever GAO Audit Of The Federal Reserve

Bankers Torpedoed Financial System -- Veteran Trader.Thursday, 29 Sept 2011 06:18 THE END OF AN ERA. "All paper assets are either worthless now or will become worthless in the very near future, including paper fiat currencies. If you want to help bring down this corrupt system, the best way is to opt out. Do not play their game, you cannot win. Sell your stocks and bonds, and use the funds, to buy real hard assets." ............and............... David said (Sept 28, 2011): Hello Henry, in response to your article "Bankers Torpedoed Financial System", I would like to offer this comment. I started trading stocks professionally in 2001, and in 2006 I switched over to trading the Forex market. While trading this market I made a very profound discovery, I discovered that this market didn't actually trade, but rather was controlled by a computer program. I then discovered that nobody in the world can beat the Forex market because it's not just controlled by a computer program, but an extremely sophisticated Artificial Intelligence computer program, that learns and will come to get your stops. To give an example of how sophisticated this program is, it would stop me out by either 6 pips or 13 pips each time. At the time I had no idea the meaning of these numbers, but now I do, they are Masonic numbers. After I learned I couldn't beat the Forex market, I switched to trading Oil when it was running up quickly to a 147 high. I then discovered, much to my astonishment, that Oil used the same exact computer program as the Forex market does, and I became very upset about it because I assumed that the same AI computer program was controlling it.
But I quickly realized this wasn't the case at all, the computer controlling the Oil market does not use an AI system, it's what I call a dumb computer. This allowed me to take trade after trade on Oil and get each one right.
As per the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, they will use this system of computer control, which actually is in control of everything, Gold, Silver, Oil, Forex, ETF's, S&P, etc, and use this system of computer control to crash world markets in ONE DAY! I believe the reason for this is to replace the current system with a new one, which is a one world currency all digital in nature. Remember, when the Son of Perdition shows up, there will be rich people and poor people, the system isn't going away, it's simply going to be changed, but in order to change the system you have to have a good reason to do so, and they are going to create the reason and bring about the solution.
I believe they will crash world markets sometime in the year 2013, or perhaps a few years after, but we are getting very close that's for sure.

Sanctions: Cut the Globalists Off From Humanity . Thurs, 29 Sept 06:12 UN Sanctioning Sovereign Nations, We the People Sanctioning the Global Elite: Time to cut them off from humanity. by Tony Cartalucci. ......'It isn't just Libya that is in the cross-hairs. Afghanistan has suffered a decade of occupation and war, at the hands of a banking, corporate-financier cartel, who call themselves "globalists." Iraq too is suffering a proxy government, beholden to invading foreign powers. The people of Uganda are literally being massacred, so Anglo-American bankers can scoop up vast tracts of land, to fuel yet another Ponzi economic scam, one based not on fiat currency, but even further-fetched"carbon credits." When one looks at the vast amount of resources at the disposal of the "globalists",...... they feel overwhelmed, and not unexpectedly ask what can anyone do, against such brazen, reckless disregard for human life, human sovereignty, and human rights? The answer is staring us in the face, every time we pick up the corporate-newspapers or flip on the corporate-news channels, and here the word "sanctions." We the people must slap sanctions on the globalists, and it doesn't even require a UN mandate to do it. It simply involves identifying the corporations and institutions that are enabling the globalist agenda, systematically boycotting them, and eventually replacing them entirely on a local or regional level.' ..ForMore.

Gold and Silver Gate is now Japanese YenGate, Update 9, by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert,Wed. Sept 28, 2011 UNITED STATES of America - It can now be reported that U.S. financial regulators and major criminal U.S. banking institutions aided by the conspiratorial privately-owned U.S. Federal Reserve, are engaged in a massive criminal conspiracy, in allowing secret offshore hedge funds tied to Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and UBS Switzerland (now under criminal investigation) to accumulate massive short positions in gold and silver, based on Japanese yen and euro currency derivatives. Item: This illegal derivative trading is being placed through a British intelligence proprietary named Humewood, as well as George Soros' Hungarian-based entities. Note: None of these criminal banking giants have posted any cash as margins whatsoever (it is all derivatives).
U.S. Treasury Secretary aka Financial Terrorist Timothy Geithner, is busy blackmailing IMF President Christine Lagarde, in trying to convince her to allow this criminal fraud to proceed. Lagarde has told Geithner, the IMF is broke, and are not going to print any more money. Rumor has it that both France and Germany are prepared to leave the European Union, and once again print French francs and German deutsche marks, backed by gold.
Item: Financial Terrorist Geithner has been telling Lagarde that the European Central Bank should try to at least leverage their way out of the banking crisis tied to Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Ireland.
Translation: What Financial Terrorist Geithner wants the European Central Bank to do, if not print more money, instead write more bogus derivatives aka leverage their way out of the crisis. This worldwide financial crisis is reaching critical mass with a direct tie in to the massive worthless Asian derivative holdings of Bank of America. So what we have here, folks, is 'Ponzi World' aka a new QE3 headquartered in Europe. P.S. The London Metals Exchange, which has operated on open outcry for over 40 years, is now up for sale, and will soon be taken over by criminal banking giant J.P. Morgan and its CEO, Financial Terrorist Jamie Dimon. This will allow J.P. Morgan and its fellow criminal banking giants to engage in more electronic black box derivative trading (with a 5 second lead time), that has no paper trail, and allows the criminal banking giants, to exceed reporting limits on the metals and currency exchanges. These reporting limits were rigorously enforced at the time gold and silver were trading at record highs, but now have been reduced at the time it is necessary for these criminal financial conspirators to illegally force these markets down.
P.P.S. These alleged financial regulators have a resume, which includes previous employment at Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan. 7:36 PM ************
