"HSBC reportedly did not allow some customers to withdraw cash unless they could prove why they need it even though the customers have cash on deposit with the bank," continued Tubbergen. "I have heard of other instances that this occurred. The bank has reportedly changed its policy to now allow withdrawals of any size in cash."

Do you keep track of foreign stocks? According to Tubbergen, Asian markets are following the lead of U.S. markets and declining significantly.

"The International Monetary Fund is warning the taper by the Fed may cause further instability in emerging markets," warns Tubbergen. "It will have to. The fundamental economic problem worldwide is the level of debt that exists. That is a condition the central banks around the world cannot address."

What is Tubbergen's bottom line on banks?
"As I’ve discussed in the past, the modern day bank bailout model is not a bailout, it’s a bail in," he explains. "Deposits in banks are simply confiscated based on a formula prescribed by policymakers. It happened last year in Cyprus, and Germany’s Bundesbank is now suggesting that countries about to go bankrupt draw off the private wealth of their citizens in order to remain solvent. Sounds like Germany is getting tired of forking over bailout money. This could be the beginning of the end of the Euro as we know it."

Tubbergen’s syndicated radio show can be heard on metro Michigan stations WTKG 1230 AM and WOOD Newsradio1300 AM and 106.9 FM.
