Odd interpretation of the Cyprus depositor freezes-confiscation from Jim Sinclair ... he thinks the Cyprus depositors might still get their deposits back in full, that the confiscation talk is a head-fake, that all we have is account freezes so far.

Sinclair says it may be very different from what it looks, because all that is concrete so far is that withdrawals are limited to tiny amounts and the bulk of many accounts, tho indeed frozen and inaccessible ... not yet truly confiscated, in his view

Sinclair notes the large number of media scare stories being run about bank deposit confiscation, a sign they are obviously planned and approved by the Powers That Be - there is open discussion of deposit confiscation across the EU, in the UK, in Switzerland, in Canada, in New Zealand, in the US ... and of course on ZeroHedge

For Sinclair, this means the Powers are just trying to spook some 'money on the sidelines' trillions into being spent

Sinclair hints that, in the end, the Cyprus depositors might not lose their money ... that in the end ECB liquidity will pump the funds back so people will not lose deposits

On the other hand, Sinclair also admits fear that, in this nearly-out-of-control environment, they might actually seize the accounts in the end, in Cyprus and elsewhere, with disastrous consequences for the world ... but Sinclair is more inclined to think the Cyprus 'depositor confiscation' is still, at the moment a head fake

One can hope Sinclair is right ... but I have my doubts

I'd wager large that this fellow Sinclair doesn't have any "money" in a Cypriot bank--not a bad post, but talk is cheap from somebody who doesn't have stones in the game.

I was looking for a bit more passion in his argument if that was the case--like "they better give me back my fucking money"--but who knows, you may be right.

Come to think of it....

If withdrawals are limited to a real tiny amount like 3Euros per month and the big money had never been told to skedaddle before the freeze, then there would always be enough cash for everybody.

how would JS having money on deposit in Cyprus offer any additional credibility to his hypothesis?  His argument is not based on emotional concepts, so having skin in the game would only UNDERMINE potentially his reasoning.   Seems you're making a strawman argument for some reason against either JS or his idea... very odd.

I am magic internet finder.  Alakazam!  This wasn't so I could produce a book report for you or be BGIB apologist but rather to provide you the link you couldn't be bothered to find.  However, I believe you can you infer BGIB's post from this.  Any disagreement with his statement isn't my problem.  I'm not interpreting Sinclair's words, just providing the copy from which I believe BGIB's came.  Have a nice day.

2nd paragraph from my link:

"Every article written on Cyprus carries the statement of huge percentages to be lost by depositors carefully using the words may, could, or some similar disclaimer. The published statement by the Dutch Minister of Finance who is captain of this initiative was that there would be no particulars until mid April. Simply put, the official EU statement set out broad goals without any specifics. This means that nothing has yet happened in Cyprus to a major deposit holder other than their inability now to access whatever funds they have left in their accounts."

from the 4th paragraph:

"While all this is happening MSM is on a campaign of making no real facts appear as accomplished facts. None of what is in either of these articles has taken place except the small daily amounts being offered by the ATM machines. Money will flee major banking institutions in the West rather than be subject to what MSM is advertising. There is a greater problem for Cypriot bankers and politicians."

That's a Big inference, I don't see how he's saying that they're trying to scare money into being "spent", or that the confiscation talk is just a head-fake. He's saying people are going to get their money out of there as fast as they can.

I respect Sinclair's analysis and predictions.

He has a great "batting record".

For example, his 10 year prediction on the price of gold was correct, +/- a couple of months.

No one is 100% correct.

I think they will let this game accelerate rather than terminate it.....watch for some braking.....but then suddenly they give you both barrels of FEAR......

I think Sinclair overestimates the intelligence of the Troika. These people are just demonstrating desperate hubris. The State is not a smart foe, it is a hungry ignorant monster sucking up everything willy-nilly. It even knows no allegiance to its Ponzi partner-the banks.

But the Troikatwats are scared, they have lost the plot and they are making it up as they go along. I believe the original thesis WAS a conspiracy to set up a single currency that would lock everyone in, then fail, and lead to all the Eurozone countries deciding that all-out unification would be the best solution. But I think they have lost control of the situation. Yes, they are listening to what the banksters are telling them (except the Cypriot banksters) but I'm not sure that even the banskers have a plan any longer. I think they are just delaying the day they go bust, one by one.

I wrote a long piece about the possible Eurozone plot to force total unification 3 years ago, here

It was actually a reference to an interview he did on KWN here.

 

It's implied that the goal is to move static liquidity into equities, but one that only makes sense if you accept the base presumption that the fed operates on the belief that dow good = economy good.

I'm okay with Jim Sinclair, but he's got a problem here. He's been insisting for several years that the Eurozone has no problems, the euro is fine, and it's all a sideshow to distract from the REAL problem, which is the terminal U.S. dollar and our massive debt issues.

Now that the Eurocalypse has come to full boil, he's apparently hoping it will turn out he hasn't made a complete ass of himself. Hey, it's tough getting old and set in your ways.

 The old guy is the ATM janitor. He just mopped out all the piss in the corners and wiped off the Merkalhitler comments on the wall. Hey the guy deserves a beer break after all that work right?

Where is the queue?  

Maybe the picture has been cropped on the RHS but going by the vacant ATM there isn't one.

just a simple question,  does anyone else on zerohedge question whether depositors could even cause a bank run in the united states.  there are billions of dollars of liquidity pumped in every month.  if all non corporate depositors pulled their funds i don't think the banks would skip a beat.

 

just thinking.

I used to think along similar lines, but upon a little further looking discovered that the amount of deposits for just regular joe's FAR exceeds even the cumulative currency the big banks have received from the Fed and bailouts.  Then you must consider that somewhere around 10% of those deposits actually exist in paper form.  So it wouldn't take "everybody" to pull their currency as that would be a very unlikely event anyway.. it would take somer percentage of everybody, i suspect relatively small, to pull all their currency.  And if that happened, the Fed would likely be forced to forgive or forstall repayment indefinitely of all the Fed discount window "loans" so the banks could take that liquidity to try to stay alive during the ensuing bank holidays, all of which would almost certainly fail b/c of the spiral effect that would occur DUE to the bank holidays.  the system really is on the verge of collapse... but it has been now since at least 2008.

When I heard that they were taking deposits, do you think if someone is dumb enough to go to the bank and try to deposit a check, that the teller will look at them and say, "maybe you want to rethink that" ?

The worse thing about this is if anyone revolts they will be thrown in jail for indefinite amounts of time, ensuring few would try it. The controllers make the laws (via their wasp puppets), build their empires, and do whatever they please with no legal consequences. Then when someone stands up against them, they are systematically destroyed or thrown in jail.

We can thank  a group of men heavily involved in the repeal of Glass Steagall for setting these last 13 years in motion: Robert Rubin, Alan Greenspan, Lawrence Summers, Sanford Weill (who is now calling for more regulation....they only wanted the spiget open long enough to destroy the West and pump up the East), and Arthur Levitt. These are the front men for the powerful syndicate, whose top apes don't show themselves openly.

Since the same pack of apes that wanted to repeal Glass Steagall (and got their way) are now promoting Re-regulating the banking industry (with them writing the regulations of course), people are now waking up to who sits behind the curtains of power in the West.

They are crashing the West, to help the Eastern nations rise. They had to make the banking/political corruption super apparent to the average Joe/Jane and to the World (to ensure their approval in destroying Themselves). This top layer of the Power Pyramid relies on blackmailing and murder of political puppets and a large administrator class (which is paid well to ensure their support). 

If I was one of a certain "religious" group, I would seriously consider converting. I don't believe in Collective Guilt and Collective Shame, but unfortunately most people do. It is always the innocent people of ANY group that become a victim of the scum that are the villains.

All the little tricks to hide themselves behind fucktard Apes like Clinton, Bush and Obama isn't working. WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

So who is the nexus of this syndicate?

The Rocks, the great European banking families, the ancient rich European families, the Vatican?

Just curious...

Other than being sad, this situation is rather funny.

A whole lot of the Cyprus economy has been on a cash basis, since I lived there in the early 70's, to when I regularly visit now.

All they have done is make sure that most of the economy will be now cash-only, meaning that their tax base just disappeared.

Now what are they gonna do?  I see a departure from the EU/eurozone in double-quick time.

What is the punishment for Cyprots that use the ATM as a urinal? Is turnaround is fair play a legal defense? Perhaps the drinking man is building up a deposit to make.

Above the ATM's it says 24 hour banking.

In view of the withdrawl limit it should now say......1 hour of banking and 23 hours of wanking.
