The Global Financial System is now under severe stress.  While there have been many factors leading to up to this point, the situation that is unfolding in China and abroad seems to be speeding up the process.  Yesterday, the market got a small WHIFF or WOKE up a...

The gold futures contract lost 0.42% on Wednesday, as it fluctuated after retracing most of Friday’s-Monday’s rally. The daily trading range reached over 30 dollars and it shows how high short-term volatility is. Investors were buying the safe-haven asset amid...
