Cryptojunkies: Beware the Ides of December
It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial traders. The weekly COT for that week showed an aggregate short position of a miniscule 2,911 contracts down from the earlier highs of over 300,000 contracts. About six weeks later, despite the earlier bottom in gold, the HUI (NYSE Ar

Harvey Organ: Why such shorting of Comex gold and silver if there's none for delivery?
Gold and silver market analyst Harvey Organ today posts an open letter to the chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, J. Christopher Giancarlo, calling attention to the transfer to London of a huge number of gold and silver futures contracts claimed for delivery on the New York Commodities Exchange. Organ writes that the transfers, called "exchanges for physicals," purportedly are allowed in emergencies but have become common occurrences -- so common, in fact, that more Comex

Applied Mainline Economics (2017), by Matthew Mitchell and Peter Boettke
Matthew Mitchell and Peter Boettke are academic economists at the Mercatus Center, a think tank associated with George Mason University. I like Mercatus and its work a lot, as it explicitly builds upon and follows the work of people like F.A. Hayek, Adam Smith, and James Buchanan. I don’t follow the academics too closely, but they often have some good insights, so I was looking forward to a book that might summarize some of those insights and let me know where to look for more detail. The idea b

Coinbase loses bid to block U.S. tax probe of bitcoin gains
Coinbase Inc. lost a bid to block an Internal Revenue Service investigation into whether some of the company's customers haven't reported their cryptocurrency gains. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley in San Francisco ruled that the tax agency's demand for information isn't overly intrusive. The price of bitcoin has been soaring and crossed $10,000 Tuesday. With just 800 to 900 taxpayers reporting bitcoin gains from 2013 through 2015 in a period when more than 14,000 Coinbase users ha

Asteroid Will Skim By Earth Days Before Christmas: It Is ‘Potentially Hazardous’
An asteroid called 3200 Phaethon will skim past the Earth just days before many will celebrate with Christmas festivities. The three-mile-wide asteroid is expected to miss the Earth, but it’s still labeled as “potentially hazardous,” and for good reasons. With a diameter of about 3 miles, the asteroid named 3200 Phaethon (after the Greek demi-god who, according to legend, nearly set the Earth on fire) is classified as “potentially hazardous” by the Minor Planet Center. The asteroid will pass wit

Bitcoin’s Historic Growth to $10,000 and Bright Future Ahead
2017 has been an epic and historic year for bitcoin and the crypto community.  The total market cap of all coins combined has grown from a mere $18.3 billion in January 2017 to over $300 billion as we enter December of the same year.  The price of bitcoin reached a then-historic high of $1,000 on New Year’s Day.  After pulling back to as low as $750 by March, a slow and steady rebound began.  By May 1st, it made another all-time high of $1,400.  And now, seven months later, $10,000 has at last b

We Have Tripled The Number Of Store Closings From Last Year, And 20 Major Retailers Have Closed At Least 50 Stores In 2017
This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Did you know that the number of retail store closings in 2017 has already tripled the number from all of 2016? Last year, a total of 2,056 store locations were closed down, but this year more than 6,700 stores have been shut down so far. That absolutely shatters the all-time record for store closings in a single year, and yet nobody seems that concerned about it.  In 2008, an all-time record 6,163 retail stores wer

Harvey Organ: Doesn't Comex have gold for delivery anymore?
Gold market analyst and GATA consultant Harvey Organ this week calls attention to the greatly increasing use of a supposedly "emergency" mechanism for delivering on gold futures contracts on the New York Commodities Exchange, "exchange for physicals," by which contracts to be delivered are transferred outside the exchange, apparently to the gold banking system in London. The implication of the increased use of EFPs, Organ writes, is that the Comex has no gold available for delivery. Organ's obse

As a result it is held the usefulness of money as a predictor of economic events has significantly diminished.To fix the instability of the demand for money, economists have introduced a gauge of the money supply known as the Divisia monetary indic

Bloomberg helpfully explains how to short bitcoin
* * * This Is How You Can Short Bitcoin By Camila Russo Bloomberg News Monday, November 27, 2017 Bitcoin's assault on $10,000 has stirred bears who see fresh evidence of a bubble. There are ways to bet on a crash, but they're even riskier than trading the cryptocurrency on the way up. The options to short bitcoin are mostly through unregulated exchanges, and very risky given bitcoin's volatility. Not to mention it hasn't exactly been a good year for bitcoin bears given the 10-fold surge in price
