Officially “Out Of Control”
Posted: Feb 14 2009 By: Jim Sinclair Post Edited: February 14, 2009 at 8:26 pm
Dear Extended Family,
I sent you a certain few emails that I consider to be the most important communications issued in my career that started in 1958.
I am the son of what I know to have been the greatest Lone Wolf trader in Wall Street history ever, Bertram J. Seligman. He was a past master at his business and believed to be a market sensitive. I apprenticed to him, learned from him and inherited some of his ability, not all however.
From this background of experience understanding and sensitivity the following flows.
The emails of note:
1. Said, "This is it."
2. Said, "It is now."
This communication is to inform you as of 2/13/09, "It is totally out of control." There is no longer any means of reversal of the beginning of the final phase of the downward spiral now solidly set in motion.
For your sake, protect yourselves immediately.
Be prepared for disruptions in distribution common to hyperinflation.
1. You should have already distanced yourself from your financial agents. If you haven’t you are headed for significant displeasure and strain.
2. Make sure you stay three months ahead on necessary items that could experience distribution delays such as prescribed medicine and preferred foods.
3. Even though real estate is far from a buy, if you can afford a second home outside of major cities it would serve a good purpose.
4. Own gold.
5. Consider that good gold shares of non-US companies incorporated in a non-US country operating in third country, traded on multiple exchanges are a means of money expatriation legally and in broad daylight if required.
6. For currencies, all you can do is own a spread held by a true custodial ship wherever that might be.
Simply said, as of Friday February 13th, 2009 the situation is in confirmed "Out of Control" mode as this well engineered downward spiral enters into a terminal phase.
The motive was profit and degree of the disintegration caused in the pursuit of this goal was not anticipated.
The key event was when Lehman was flushed - all hell broke loose. The hell cannot be contained in any practical manner.
I seek nothing of you, but the protection of yourselves.

A Message from Jim Sinclair
I am simply passing this along. I believe that Jim converses with certain people in high places. So when I see him take this dire tone, I pay attention. Not just to him, but to everything currently happening. I note that Jim had direct dealings with Paul Volcker in the 1980's, and I believe they still communicate. When Jim has said the items listed as "The emails of note" in the past, the timing has turned out to be while big things were happening behind the scenes. I believe he is being completely honest when he says his only motivation is that his readers protect themselves.
