A Tectonic Shift is Brewing, Get Outside the System Now

A “tectonic shift” is coming as the US moves from one interest rate benchmark to another.

That’s according to Lynette Zang, chief market analyst at ITM Trading. She told the Investing News Network that as of June 30, 2023, the US will use the SOFR rate instead of the LIBOR rate, which means contracts across the board will be revalued.

“This level of change has never been attempted before,” she said. “I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think they can do it — and Wall Street doesn’t think they can do it, which is why they didn’t adopt (SOFR) easily.”

This transition isn’t the only big change that’s currently in the cards. Zang also spoke about de-dollarization, saying there are many signs that the US dollar is set to lose its status as the world’s dominant reserve currency.

“The reason why I believe you are seeing central banks accumulate massive amounts of gold is so that they retain their power through the shift,” she said, adding, “That’s exactly the same reason I buy gold.”

When it comes to physical gold, she favors collectible pre-1933 coins, but said what’s most important is to have a foundation of real money that’s outside the system. “Regardless of your perception, if you don’t hold it, you don’t own it,” Zang said.

Beyond gold, which preserves wealth, and silver, which is barterable, Zang recommended focusing on food, water, energy, security, community and shelter. “These are the things that we need to make sure are secure and surrounding us,” she said.
