These Headlines Say Gold is Building a Base for Something Big
It may be frustrating to watch the gold price remain dormant as stock markets continue to push higher. But while cryptos and Trump grab a lot of the headlines, you might be surprised to know there are significant forces behind the scenes that signal the gold market is not only strong but suggest something big is coming.Check out these reports from the last 30 days and see what conclusion you’d draw…Global Physical DemandDemand for coins and bars in North America may be low, but that’s not the wh

Comparing Digital Metals - Craig Hemke
With total Comex silver open interest near the 200,000 contract level, we thought it would be enlightening to once again discuss the total volume of physical mine supply versus digital metal supply on this futures exchange. We've written on countless occasions about Comex alchemy and the fraud of digital metal. As a refresher, you might review both of these links before we continue: • https://www.sprottmoney.com/Blog/42-years-of-fract... • https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/8252/econ-101-

Next-Generation Crazy: The Fed Plans For The Coming Recession - John Rubino
Insanity, like criminality, usually starts small and expands with time. In the Fed’s case, the process began in the 1990s with a series of (in retrospect) relatively minor problems running from Mexico’s currency crisis thorough Russia’s bond default, the Asian Contagion financial crisis, the Long Term Capital Management collapse and finally the Y2K computer bug. With the exception of Y2K – which turned out to be a total non-event – these mini-crises were threats primarily to the big banks

Why Base Your Money On Gold? A Simple Answer For First-Timers
The United States embraced the principle of a gold standard – a dollar whose value was linked to a defined quantity of gold – from 1789 to 1971, a stretch of 182 years. During this time, the U.S. was the most successful of any major country, expanding from thirteen war-ravaged states along the Atlantic

Is New Fed Chief A “Swamp Critter Extraordinaire”?
– Is the New Fed Chief Jeremy Powell a “Swamp Critter Extraordinaire”? – Trump surrounding himself with elites disconnected from everyday society – Realities of America’s difficulties not recognised by US power makers – Powell will likely continue to protect Wall Street over Main Street – Savers should diversify to protect themselves from Fed’s ponzi policies Editor: Mark O’Byrne Just like many of his other campaign promises, Trump isn’t doing a great job of draining the swamp. His nominee for

THE BIGGEST WEALTH TRANSFER IN HISTORY
What will happen between now and 2025? Nobody knows of course but I will later in this article have a little peek into the next 4-8 years. The concentration of wealth in the world has now reached dangerous proportions. The three richest people in the world have a greater wealth than the bottom 50%. The top 1% have a wealth of $33 trillion whilst the bottom 1% have a debt $196 billion. The interesting point is not just that the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer. More interesting is to

Will macro-economists ever learn?
As we lurch through successive credit crises, central bankers and economists believe they learn valuable lessons every time, and that the ultimate prize, the suppression of business cycles through monetary policy, will be achieved.We saw, over Brexit, how wrong the Bank of England’s and the UK Treasury’s models were, and these errors were also evident in the OECD’s model. Brexiteers smelled conspiracy, but in the absence of evidence, perhaps we should give them the benefit of the doubt and assum

Tulips, Railways and Why We Don't Take Bitcoin
No stocks, bonds, seashells or Yap stones either please... ONE KEY requirement of money, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault, is that it doesn't drop 27% of its purchasing power inside 4 days... ...only to regain all that drop again in the following 72 hours. This kind of hyper-volatility signalled the death of the German

The Whiskey Rebellion: How Brand New America Tore Up The Bill of Rights
Via The Daily Bell 223 years ago today, “The Dreadful Night” occurred in Western Pennsylvania, after an uprising called The Whiskey Rebellion. The United States was brand new. Soldiers who had fought for independence from Great Britain found themselves on opposite sides of a skirmish. Some were having their rights violated practically before the ink was dry on the Bill of Rights. Other Veterans of the Revolution were doing the oppressing at Alexander Hamilton’s behest. The Whiskey Rebellion saw

Robert Lambourne: BIS gold swaps rose substantially in October
Disclosures in the October statement of account published by the Bank for International Settlements indicate that during October the bank increased substantially its use of gold swaps and other gold-related derivatives. The information provided in the BIS monthly statement of account is not sufficient to calculate a precise amount of gold-related derivatives, including swaps, but it appears that the total exposure has risen above 570 tonnes of gold as of October 31. This compares to an estimat

Cryptos may destabilise fiat 
The assumption in some quarters is that crypto-currencies will replace gold as money, or at least challenge it. This is an error borne out of a misunderstanding of catallactics, or the theory of exchange. It also ignores the fact that beyond a few European countries and North America, gold is firmly money in the minds of ordinary people. I wrote an article on this subject, explaining why cryptocurrencies are not a new form of money, here.Anyone reading this article may wish to read my original a

Shelter From The Storm
What storm?  The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high.  Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! Ho-Hum! Really?  Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world?  If so

Asking the Wrong Questions
This article is NOT relevant to High Frequency Traders, Hedge Fund Managers, the political and financial elite, or central bankers. It is relevant if: You sense or know much is wrong in our financial world… You worry that the furious rally in the stock market since 2009 might be close to a peak… You know that exponentially increasing debt can’t continue forever… You think that a 36 year bond bull market might have rolled over… You own no politicians and have no Senators on speed-dial… You are w

ICOs VS. Venture Capital and Banks
Traditionally, if you have a great business idea but lack the finances to get the project started, you would pursue funding through a venture capital outlet.There are hundreds of venture capital firms that spend tens of billions of dollars helping businesses get off the ground. However, not all startups attain venture capital funding, andsome estimateson venture capital rejections are as high as 99%. In this way, attaining venture capital funding can feel like an episode of Shark Tank in which b

Nothing Really Matters, Anyone Can See - Craig Hemke
The US labor force is rapidly shrinking. Wage growth is non-existent. The vast majority of the American people have no savings and little hope for economic improvement. But none of that matters with the G-3 central banks in charge! So today saw the latest installment of the BLSBS. If you check your "mainstream" sources, you'll be led to believe that everything is great and getting even better! But look under the hood and you see that this is all bullshit. The unemployment rate that Drudge

We’re transitioning now (how about you?)
It finally happened, we have a new Federal Reserve Chairman who will take the place of the academician. Jerome Hayden “Jay” Powell will replace Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve Chairman at the end of Yellens term and hopefully we will no longer see financial experiments by those that have never traded. This change up may actually create real movements without the central banker hindrances within the debt arenas. What will that do to the rest of the markets and to ones investments if they are not

Digging Up An Old Story.. Part II
It is the closing of October and the Hollow’s Eve celebrations are in their waning hours. It is in this era of time in which we continue the diggings up of the thesis of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and if the story of the blood sucking vampire was that of a banker. Imo, Bram would have truly been a member of our community, a group that has complete and full trust in Silver and Gold and not the power of print. I finally got my purchase of “Famous Impostors” written by Bram Stoker back in 1910. The book
