GOLD
In my last update on May 24th I wrote that May 27th-28th should be noted for news regarding an increased demand for delivery on the Comex futures.  I also warned about the potential for chaos and losses with the Comex trading partners and futures traders.  As I predicted, on Thursday May 28th it all came to a head – gold futures traders declared their intent to deliver a record 2.8 million ounces of gold against the future June contract.  The largest daily delivery notice in the exchange data going back to 1994.
The news regarding gold is significant in my view, considering we have a very important eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer on June 21st that will oppose the Federal Reserve Sun (the Sun rules gold) at 01 degrees Capricorn – some type of demand for gold, or confiscation/transfer is in the works (behind the scenes planned tyranny = Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn).  The type of confiscation I am suggesting is not likely to be broadcast.  More like a transfer between nations on the threat of nuclear war.  The threat of a financial collapse and international conflict over gold could be earth shaking, literally, and the possibility of a large scale earthquake hitting California is a real possibility.  The Covid crises, the riots, are part of the sh*t show, but not likely the most critical yet.  We are all having to dodge danger – stay safe.  I had my firsthand experience with danger this weekend when traveling home on the freeway.  Suddenly all traffic came to a standstill when we were southbound near Milwaukee.  Cars in our direction began peeling out onto the emergency lane, driving in the wrong direction against traffic, and heading for the onramp to exit the freeway!  I realized we may not make it to the offramp another mile down, and doing a U-turn was the best option – crazy!  We got home safe and learned later that a car was set on fire in the southbound lanes.
Be prepared as best you can, be kind, be humanitarian, enjoy quality time with your families and friends.  We are moving quickly into a new normal where business, taxes, and accounting practices are going to change forever.  The Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto conjunction will bring new mandates, harsh judgements on criminal organizations, and new oversight into accounting practices.  It will be one extreme or another.  Either total corruption and a tearing apart of the Constitution, or mandated change upholding the law and Constitution.  With Pluto it’s always about transformation, one side or the other, but never in the middle.

No one knows your business model quite as well as you do. Along with the many talents that you bring to the table, it pays to bring in the experts who can help increase consumer awareness about what you have to offer. That’s where the idea of SEO consulting comes into the picture. An expert who can provide you with 18 years of SEO experience can make a difference to the future of your operation. Here are four basic reasons why you need to work with a consultant now rather than later.

A Detailed Assessment of Your Online Presence

You think that your online efforts are quite good. In fact, there could be quite a few things about your website, social media, landing pages, and blog that are helping spread the word. What if you could build on what’s already in place and make it a little better?

The right SEO consultant can do more than identify what’s working at peak levels. That professional can also tell why those efforts are resonating with your audience. Armed with that information, it’s easier to know what to leave in place, what to discard, and what needs to be reworked.

Enhancing Your Reputation With the Right Demographics

Like most business enterprises, you have an image of the ideal customer. It could be that you also have a good idea of what niche markets would be right for your company. The trick is how to build and grow a reputation that helps your business stand apart from the competition.

The right approach to search engine optimization can help with that. From providing some insight into how to make the pages load faster to reworking content and updating descriptions and tags, and expert can help your reputation become stronger and more positive with those coveted consumer demographics.

Making Sure You’re Using the Latest and Best SEO Practices

Along with asking what is SEO consulting? , many people want to know what’s the latest and greatest in terms of attracting positive attention from the major search engines. While there are many tools that you could use, properly interpreting the data is sometimes tricky. People also assume that approaches that once led to high rankings still work. That’s not the case.

A consultant will be up to date on SEO practices and strategies that are in line with current search engine algorithms. You could find that making a few simple changes would increase traffic to your sites significantly. More traffic, especially repeat traffic, increases the potential for revenue generation.

Improving the Shareability of Your Sites and Posts

It’s not just about ranking higher in search engine results and giving people a reason to linger on your pages. You also want to provide them with a reason to share links to your site, social media posts, and your blog. (more…)

US Dollar and Gold – Breakout Coming
In my May 10th update I highlighted the Mars transit at 28 degrees Aquarius as the signature for a financial black hole Astrology Update May 10, 2020.  The market bounce took a sudden reversal on May 11th – a sign that the stability of the financial sector and recovery is in question.  On May 11th – PNC announced the sale of its 22% stake in Blackrock.  Nancy Pelosi also stepped in and introduced another bill requesting Congress to approve an additional 3 trillion in stimulus.  In my view, the May 11th Mars transit, albeit short,  is important to note as a punctuation to an  important event that is a warning for the future.  The circumstances of the financial sector have not changed since May 11th. The Senate has yet to approve the bill and it looks to be getting some push back.  Last week I outlined the potential for war and the very rare Metonic series of solar eclipses at  0 degrees Cancer that initiated on June 21, 2001 Astrology Update May 17, 2020.  The second eclipse at 0 degrees Cancer will occur on June 21, 2020 and then every 19 years until June 21, 2058.  The Federal Reserve natal Sun is 01 degrees Capricorn, which means these eclipses will occur opposite the natal Sun position of the Fed chart.  A solar eclipse opposite a natal Sun is very debilitating and has a weakening effect.  The eclipse is also on the Cardinal Cross of world power and war, which means that in addition to its debilitating impact on the Fed, it will also wreck some havoc on the world scene with regard to currency trends and gold.  After all, the Sun rules gold!
Gold
Chaos is very likely in the Gold futures markets.  At the beginning of May the North Node transit at 0 Cancer was a prelude to the solar eclipse mentioned above.  The North Node transit coincided with an unprecedented dysfunction between the gold paper contract and physical price and caused a significant divergence, essentially there was no price discovery.  Huge losses hit the clearing houses and market brokerages, among them Interactive Brokers.  The CME group moved quickly to secure a 7 billion line of credit with the option for 10 billion to cover future losses in the event a Comex member should default.  If gold prices continue to move higher the counter party risk of defaults may well play out if the paper contract holders lose faith in the system and want physical delivery of gold.   The London and Comex trading platforms could very well get broken apart.
Next week I believe we will get a hint of what to expect going forward for Gold.  Near May 27th-28th and June 1st – watch for gold prices to move higher and news regarding increased demand for delivery – potential losses from Comex trading partners and futures traders.  It may just be news regarding concerns at this point, but listen closely – the threat of a break up is real.  June 10th – 13th – watch for gold to move higher.  Near June 15th and July 1st watch for demand for physical gold to accelerate – the situation is escalating here.

How happy are you with your mortgage? Even if it’s been some time since you gave it a second thought, there are compelling reasons to compare the current contract with what you could lock in by refinancing it.

This is true even if you’re not in the best place financially. There are a number of providers who can help with a Toronto bad credit mortgage deal that could be right for you. If any of the following would help strengthen your position, it’s worth the time and effort needed to make the comparison.

Lock In a Better Interest Rate

Take a look at the type of interest rate you could get if you refinanced today. Does it compare favorably with the fixed rate found in your current mortgage agreement? For those who have an adjustable rate mortgage, what would a fixed rate do in terms of reducing the amount of interest you’ll pay over the life of the loan?

Assuming that any costs or fees associated with settling the old mortgage and securing a new one will be offset by the difference, refinancing could turn out to be a lucrative move on your part. You won’t know for sure until you look at the rates and then do some projections.

Restructure Your Existing Debt

You have quite a bit of equity in the home right now. There’s also several debts that you’re in the process of paying off. What if you could refinance the mortgage and tap into that equity to pay off those other debts? Assuming the interest rates and terms included in the refinanced mortgage are lower than what you currently have with those other debts, you stand to save a tidy sum. (more…)
