China is bullshit. The Chinese government has loads of off-balance-sheet commitments and obligations.

Today is 40 days since the last Hindenburg Omen triggered. So if we don't get a collapse today, all that nonsense about Hindenburg last August is pure BS. Wickipedia says it gave five signals in August, and that the "rules" call for market drop within 40 days. Who writes the rules, I wonder?

The market began collapsing oct 8th 4am to 9 am new york time. Though you won't see it for a while. If gold doesn't drop today significantly the game is over.

The powers that be have 2 choices. Stop playing. Lose. Keep playing. Lose. One option comes with severe penalties for early withdrawal.
