What if the ‘imminent collapse’ of the dollar is overblown by about 50 – years?
According to this just out, on private gold-filled currency, the article states average life of a fiat currency, is four generations. It goes on to say there are exceptions like the British Pound, continuing on even after hundreds of years.
The Black Swan
In Taleb’s book ‘The Black Swan’, he says it’s an event that nobody expects. It has long lasting repercussions and permanent change.
However, what most if not nearly everybody ignores or leaves out, is his alternate definition. That is:
A Black Swan can also be a future event that’s widely accepted as fact, that does not happen !!!
Is that where we are with the U.S. Dollar?
Even though the dollar has not collapsed and in fact, has rallied as we’ll see below, the ‘collapse’ talk continues unabated.
It’s easy to talk about dollar collapse.
It’s what gets the clicks. No matter that an actual collapse may be years if not decades away.
As of this post, how many ‘monopoly money’ YouTube videos can be found? Seems like it’s the same number or more than, ‘gold to skyrocket higher’.
Well, so far, gold has not skyrocketed higher.
On top of that, this site’s even provided an exclusive correlation that gold’s moving inversely to corn.
See ‘Insight Note‘ at the end of this post.
Ever since the ‘Derecho‘, it’s never been the same.
Back to the dollar.
No doubt, the dollar was whacked over the past trading week. Let’s take a look at what the UUP, price action is saying about itself.
Dollar, UUP, Weekly Chart
The unmarked chart shows the dollar oscillating, testing support for six-months at the beginning of 2021.
Then, in mid-June ’21, UUP pivoted decisively higher (gold, GLD, pushed lower) and never came back to those levels.
Of course, this past week The Usual Suspects were out talking about the dollar and ‘monopoly money’.

It’s been a strange coincidence over the past year or so, ideas presented on this site make their way to certain YouTube sites either in the titles, or within their content.
The timing of this phenomenon, that within a day or two, ‘post it first here, see it on YouTube there’, has occurred more times than one would consider as just ‘coincidence’.
Admittedly, the insights (making their way to certain YouTubers) have not been exclusive … that is, until now.
Recognition of the Gold/Corn inverse correlation, first posted here, is unique to this site.
As far as is known, this correlation has not been presented on any other financial site or YouTube channel or any other medium.
It may be an important data-point and map into this site’s long-time premise; it’s the corn and the grain first, then gold and silver (not advice, not a recommendation).
For more detail, search for Genesis 41.
When ideas from others are incorporated into the analysis presented on this site, full acknowledgement of the source is cited.
As Dr. Elder said in his book ‘Come Into My Trading Room’:
“I have zero respect for thieves”
He’s talking about the theft of his book title: “Trading For A Living”. He goes on to say, (paraphrasing)
‘Do you really want to use market analysis or input from someone that can’t think for themselves?’
Therefore, this footnote is authorizing the further use of the Gold/Corn inverse correlation by others in the industry if they so choose with the following caveat:
If one of the sites monitored (or some other media) uses this exclusive insight, and does so without referencing the source, it puts this author in the unenviable (but not unfamiliar) position of calling out the thief by name … not unlike what Stew Peters is doing (to the hoax/genocide perpetrators) on his broadcasts.
This market environment’s providing a fantastic public service:
It’s separating out the hucksters, the shysters and the otherwise incompetent from those who are, or who are striving to provide a service or useful insight.
The general investing public may find out soon enough, they’re on their own. Maybe unbeknownst to them, they’ve always been on their own.
Note the websites having problems involve food, payroll services and of course, entertainment.
Separately, the dollar (UUP) just made a new weekly high as its rally continues. In Steven Van Metre’s Sunday Night update (time stamp: 18:01), if the dollar breaks higher above UUP 26 or 27, then “… all the wheels come off ….”
Which brings us to the gold market.
Gold (GLD), Weekly Chart
The chart reviews the recent up-thrust (reversal) that was accompanied by hysterical … bordering on unhinged insane press coverage of an imminent break higher.
Obviously, that didn’t happen.
In addition to the reversal and breakaway gap, there could be a trading channel as well.
That’s a good thing for the bears as it gives a more clear exit area … negation (or break) of that channel (not advice, not a recommendation).
Of course, anything can happen. The Fed announcement is about two hours away.
However, it looks like gold and miners alike, are not waiting around … potentially beginning their decline in earnest.
