DERIVATIVES: CRIMINAL MINDS AT “WORK”

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Derivative is a financial instrument with a value dependent upon underlying variables. The term can refer to a contract, or its value, derived from the underlying assets. The most common derivatives arefuturesoptions, and swaps but may also include other tradeable assets such as a stock or commodity or non-tradeable items such as the temperature (in the case of weather derivatives), the unemployment rate, or any kind of (economic) index. A derivative is essentially a contract whose payoff depends on the behavior of a benchmark.

One of the oldest derivatives is rice futures, which have been traded on the Dojima Rice Exchange since the eighteenth century.

Derivatives are broadly categorized by the relationship between the underlying asset and the derivative (e.g., forwardoptionswap); the type of underlying asset (e.g., equity derivativesforeign exchange derivativesinterest rate derivatives, commodity derivatives, or credit derivatives); the market in which they trade (e.g., exchange-traded or over-the-counter); and their pay-off profile.

Derivatives can be used for speculating purposes (“bets”) or to hedge (“insurance”). For example, a speculator may sell deep in-the-money naked calls on a stock, expecting the stock price to plummet, but exposing himself to potentially unlimited losses. Very commonly, companies buy currency forwards in order to limit losses due to fluctuations in the exchange rate of two currencies.

Derivatives are used by investors to:

  • provide leverage (or gearing), such that a small movement in the underlying value can cause a large difference in the value of the derivative;
  • speculate and make a profit if the value of the underlying asset moves the way they expect (e.g., moves in a given direction, stays in or out of a specified range, reaches a certain level);
  • hedge or mitigate risk in the underlying, by entering into a derivative contract whose value moves in the opposite direction to their underlying position and cancels part or all of it out;
  • obtain exposure to the underlying where it is not possible to trade in the underlying (e.g., weather derivatives);
  • create option ability where the value of the derivative is linked to a specific condition or event (e.g. the underlying reaching a specific price level).

OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY AND HOW BANKERS USE IT

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

A quote from Chapter One of the book by Judge Louis D. Brandeis, published in 1913 “OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY AND HOW BANKERS US IT”

President Wilson, before he was President, said in 1911:

“The great monopoly in this country is the money monopoly. So long as it exists our old variety and freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question.  A great industrial nation is controlled by it’s system of credit.  Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men, who, even if their actions be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money in involved and who, necessarily, by every reason of their own limiations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom. This is the greatest question of all: and to this, statesmen must address themselves with an earnest determination to serve the long future and true liberties of men.”

In short, the Jewish Banking Establishment took over the United States money supply with the passage of the FEDERAL RESERVE ACT in 1913.

The Federal Reserve Act (ch. 6, 38 Stat. 251, enacted December 23, 1913, 12 U.S.C. ch.3) is an Act of Congress that created and set up the Federal Reserve System, the PRIVATE BANK of the United States of America, and granted it the legal authority to issue Federal Reserve Notes (now commonly known as the U.S. Dollar) and Federal Reserve Bank Notes as legal tender.

The Act was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson.

(JP Morgan had arranged the assassination of ALL of the opponents of the Federal Reserve Act when he had his ship, THE TITANIC, crashed and sunk.  See previous post:  https://lawrencerspencer.com/2012/04/06/titanic-assassination-by-sinking/
