Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News Wednesday Evening 3-20-24

Good evening ,

Gold has been climbing since the beginning of this year despite the dollar being propped up through higher interest rates.

Bitcoin began its climb last year decoupling itself from the dollar, and now, we are witnessing gold begin to do the same.

The BRICS Nations have been quietly adding to a list of Nations joining their alliance. One of the things that is required of joining is a willingness to back their currencies by gold.

And for some time, we have read where Russia and China are in support of a new payment system inside a new digital economy for trade payments.

As you can see, the dollar is headed into a strong headwind. Many whales have been preparing for this shift in our economy and moving their money from stocks, and into, digital gold.

As the Global Bond markets are digitized this year, there’s a strong expectation for the bond markets to really flourish until the year 2030.

Most of a bond’s return over time comes from its yield. And falling yields are expected in the latter half of 2024. It will boost bond prices.

Bond yields stimulate a nation’s stock market. In turn, this increases the demand for a country’s currency. From a Global perspective, this will give strength to many of the new local currencies that are beginning to come back onto the market after using the dollar for some time.

Tokenized assets incorporate gold or some other commodity along with a digitized asset. These three drivers of the new economy when coupled with underlying assets to support each other become an unstoppable force of growth going forward.  Times of India

We are moving into an open banking system. This means that new innovations will surface in the years ahead that will provide us with new opportunities for growth.

Because a country comes up with a single innovative digital banking protocol this year, doesn’t mean that another country cannot come up with a better one the following year to replace it.

We are entering into the “Age of Creativity.” Creativity can know more than the mind can ever understand. It takes us into realms of consciousness whereby we are lead by the very wisdom that has created us.

Stellar (XLM) is taking the lead on new innovations that will begin the process of taking us into the new digital economy. Ripple (XRP) is coming up with their own Ledger System that will compete. Who is next?

Herein lies the beauty of what we are witnessing currently being developed. As new innovations come out into the market to enhance the well-being of our Creator’s people, freedom will be the motivator for the new digital economy over and beyond controlling the masses.  Those who forget this will more than likely get left behind.

“As security risks grow more complex, government agencies are emphasizing new regulations to help lay out what businesses need to do to protect their IT infrastructure while also establishing IT security standards. Things like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have already had a tremendous impact on the urgency around prioritizing security infrastructure.” | CIO
