  BANK ASSETS ARE EPHEMERAL – HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW
It is not only paper gold which is Fake. Few investors realise that most of their investments are Fake. Fake news and Fake assets are everywhere. Let’s start with social media which dominates major parts of the world. Facebook for example has 2 billion active users. WhatsApp has 1.2 billion users and Instagram 700 million. There will obviously be quite a lot of overlap between the various social media. But what it is clear that these three Apps reach billions of people and their power is much bi

How can the Fed possibly unwind QE?
There are currently two important items on the Fed’s wish list. The first is to restore interest rates to more normal levels, and the second is to unwind the Fed’s balance sheet, which has expanded since the great financial crisis, principally through quantitative easing (QE). Is this not just common sense?Maybe. It is one thing to wish, another to achieve. The Fed has demonstrated only one skill, and that is to ensure the quantity of money continually expands, yet they are now saying they will

“A Stock Market Crash is Coming!”
Conventional “Wisdom:” Markets move up and down, but the stock market always comes back. The DOW is frothy and needs a correction, but the stock markets are healthy and big gains lie ahead. Pessimistic version:  Jim Rogers said, “the next crash will ‘the biggest in my lifetime.’” [Coming soon …] Question:  Given the craziness in politics, the Middle-East, Central Banking, and global debt levels …  do you own enough gold bullion? Conventional thinking: “Trump will save the markets, reduce taxes,

The Fed May Show Trump No Love
Typically, U.S. Presidents are wary of claiming stock market performance as a referendum on their success. Most have seemed to understand that taking credit also means accepting blame, and no one would want to make the tortured argument that the positive moves reflect well on their presidency but that the negative moves do not. But Donald Trump has shown no reluctance to make any argument that suits his political purpose of the day, no matter its absurdity, and no matter if he has to contradict

Market Warning: “A Signal That This Reversal In The Stock Bubble Will Take Place Very Soon”
The following report was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com Though stock markets in general are meaningless and indicate nothing in terms of the health of the economy they still function as a form of hypnosis, or a kind of Pavlovian mechanism; a tool that central bankers can use to keep a population servile and salivating at the ring of a bell. As I have mentioned in the past, the only two elements of the economy that the average person pays attention to in the slightest ar

Why not sue Comex for facilitating the rigging of monetary metals markets?
Dear GATA: I read Ronan Manly's July 18 report asserting that the New York Commodity Exchange's gold futures market is structured to facilitate price manipulation: http://www.gata.org/node/17521 The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission likely won't ever do anything about that. But I wonder if anyone has looked into whether the Comex and its operator, CME Group, might be held liable for knowingly facilitating or aiding and abetting illegal activity? Perhaps a civil lawsuit seeking damages or

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

Bad Models Result In Terrible Outcomes
Recently I spent a month in Buenos Aires.  I went there to study the culture and the economy of a formrely prosperous land, filled with kind well-educated people. One key lesson was this: Given enough time, bad policies will eventually ruin any advantage. While not as bad off as it was in 2002, when the masses took to the streets banging pots and pans in protest of their nations ruined economy, the city of Buenos Aires is still clearly depressed. As are most of its people.  More than that, all h

National Debt Too High, Silver Price Too Low - Gary Christenson
Silver currently sells around $16, which would be sensible if the U.S. national debt was much less than its current $20 trillion. Given the massive national debt and 100 years of experience, silver prices could easily be double or triple their current prices, and far higher in a panic. WHY? Examine over a century of official national debt data graphed on a log scale. Official debt in 1913 was $3 billion. Since then it has risen 8% to 9% every year to reach $20 trillion or $20,000 billion. D

THE GOLD PRICE IS FAKE NEWS
Lethargic summer markets tend to instil a sense of false security. Stocks and property are near all-time highs, interest rates are at 72 year lows and most investors feel richer than ever. Central banks signal strong economies with indications of higher interest rates and tapering of their balance sheets. Central Bank Chief Beheaded As I discussed last week’s article about the Fed, we must never trust central banks since they are always hopelessly wrong. Sweden is another example of a central ba

Here’s How To “Go Long” Africa
By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at About a month ago, the South African government raised the minimum threshold for black ownership of mining companies from 26% to 30%. It's called "black empowerment" or "affirmative action" and is intended to provide black people with greater access to wealth, education, and to correct the inequality created by the white-led government who relinquished power in 1994 - 23 years ago. I got a message from a buddy who runs a global macro fund, asking me for my

Global Currency Reserve at Risk
Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form

Private Gold Investing Jumps to the Moon
...and back...8 times in total... GOLD is famously ductile, meaning it can stretch into a very thin, very long wire, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Just how long depends on how much you've got and how thin you stretch it. (There's also metallurgy lab' debate over gold beating platinum as the most ductile metal, too). Drawn out to a width of

Cryptocurrencies vs. Bullion - Jeff Nielson
Bitcoin and ethereum. By now, at least one of these names will be familiar to readers. These are “crypto-currencies”. What is a crypto-currency? In general terms, a crypto-currency is a digital currency where the value/exchange rate of that currency is the product of a complex mathematical formula. Proponents of these crypto-currencies are adamant that these formulae are valid and therefore this ensures the integrity of these new currencies. That point will be briefly addressed later in this art

The Reason Why Gold Silver Have Frustrated Investors Since 2011
ZeroHedge/Steve St. Angelo/07-06-17 The biggest frustration to many precious metals investors, is why have the gold and silver prices under-performed the market since 2011? Actually, for gold it was since 2012. Even though gold hit a new record high of $1,900 in September 2011, its average annual price was higher in 2012 at $1,669 compared to $1,571 the prior year. Regardless, the precious metals analysts back in 2012 were forecasting the market was going to experience even higher gold and silve

Internal Feuding Within the ECB Over Tapering: Reflections on Monetary Policy

CHRONIC CRISES NEXT FOR YELLEN AND THE FED
“The report of my death has been grossly exaggerated” are words that Janet Yellen is likely to utter within the next few years. It was of course Mark Twain who said it over 100 years ago, before the Fed even existed. Yellen has recently stated that there won’t be another financial crisis in her lifetime and she will most likely have to eat those words in coming years. We know that the Fed’s record of economic forecasting has been abysmal. They have never forecast or anticipated a single economic
