EDITOR NOTE: Guilty as charged, and now JPMorgan is hit with a record-setting penalty of $1 billion--an amount equal to 21% of its quarterly net income. Considering the income “earned” through their years of market manipulation, it makes you wonder what the real cost is for this common-practice crime. In this video, I examine the possibility of this being the last dip before a meteoric rise in both Gold and Silver! With the DOJ, CFTC, and SEC all watching Chase and Deutsche Bank like a hawk until the end of this quarter, precious metals may begin to show their actual values. Currently, we are printing $30,000 per ounce for Gold and $3,900 per ounce for silver! As the IMF meets this October to recalibrate the global SDR basket, potentially demoting the Dollar on the international stage - ANYTHING is possible! Watch my video breakdown by clicking the link below and buy this dip.
