Gold’s True Fundamentals
To paraphrase Jim Grant, gold’s perceived value in US$ terms is the reciprocal of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. Consequently, what I refer to as gold’s true fundamentals are measures of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. I’ve been covering these fundamental drivers of the gold price in TSI commentaries for almost 17 years. It doesn’t seem that long, but time flies when you’re having fun. No

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

“At the time, my life just seemed too complete, and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves.”  -Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club I am still trying to interpret and integrate all that I experienced and learned about disintermediation, about myself, and about y'all at last week's First ZeroHedge Symposium and Live Fight Club in Marfa, Texas. I hope that writing this after-action report will help me to better assimilate it. Last Wednesday, I picked up the aquaponics

The End of Markets, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Readers in the Alternative Media may have noticed a distinct drop-off in the number of articles that are published on “the gold market” or “the silver market”. This is true even with respect to precious metals commentators. There is a very good reason for this. We no longer have markets. To prove this assertion, as always, the place to start is definition of terms. What is a market? There are a number of ingredients in any definition. However, first and foremost, a market is a forum for human

The Central-Bank Moment
Hyman Minsky was an economist who popularised the idea that “stability leads to instability”. According to Minsky and his followers, credit expands rapidly during the good times to the point where a lot of borrowing is being done by financially fragile/vulnerable entities, thus sowing the seeds of a financial crisis. That’s why the start of a financial crisis is now often referred to as a “Minsky moment”. Unfortunately, Minsky’s analysis was far too superficial. Minsky described a process during

My Newest “Most Likely To Catalyze The Big One”
Today’s article is one of my scariest yet; as, after watching events unfold in the world’s most notorious geopolitical hotspot in recent weeks, it’s difficult to come up, using my best Spock-like logic, with an alternative conclusion to the potentially catastrophic one I’ll discuss today.  Which, if it occurs, may catalyze not only the financial “big one” we all know is coming, but an era of political, geopolitical, economic, and monetary destabilization unlike; and potentially, unparalleled in

Global Blast-Off Trade Setup
Our analysis of the global markets and metals markets are prompting us to issue a warning that may not shock a number of our followers – but may surprise others. We use a number of custom indicators, custom indexes and other specialized features to try to keep our valued members aware of moves before they happen at ActiveTradingPartners.com. You may recall our recent article warning of a VIX spike between June 9th and June 13th in correlation with a US market correction (NASDAQ). We nailed this

The Pin To Pop This Mother Of All Bubbles?
Global macro economic data has been weak for many years, but there’s now a very real chance of a world-wide recession happening in 2017. Why? A dramatic and worsening shortfall in new credit creation.  The world’s major central banks have, again, done the world an enormous disservice.  Instead of admitting that maybe/perhaps/possibly the practice of issuing debt at more than twice the rate of underlying economic growth was a very bad idea over the past several decades, they instead doubled down

The Most PiMBEEB Transaction Of All-Time
Monday mornings can be daunting, in processing the massive amount of PiMBEEB – or Precious Metal bullish, everything-else-bearish – news since my last publication, 72 hours earlier.  This, amidst a world where government-commandeered “markets” signal nothing but the madness they have created, and the carnage that must surely ensue – as if generational economic weakness; the highest-ever debt load; the largest-ever industrial oversupply; the lowest-ever cumulative purchasing power; and the highes

  Fractional-Reserve Banking and Money Creation
According to traditional economics textbooks, the current monetary system amplifies initial monetary injections of money. The popular story goes as follows: if the central bank injects $1 billion into the economy, and banks have to hold 10% in reserve against their deposits, this will allow the first bank to lend 90% of this $1 billion. The $900 million in turn will end up with the second bank, which will lend 90% of the $900 million. The $810 million will end up with a third bank, which in turn

Precious Metals VS. Crypto-Currency And Mainstream Investments-“Revisited”
Two days after the most suicidal, hubristically arrogant policy statement in FOMC history, by an institution desperate to maintain the dead propaganda meme of “growth”; and with it, the Cartel’s “response” – gold remains less than $20/oz below its 5½ year downtrend line, and $20/oz above its 200 week moving average; whilst silver – in my view, more undervalued than at any time in history – is just a buck below its 200 week moving average, but a full $0.65/oz above its 5½ year downtrend line.  In

Cryptocurrency Update: Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and Bitcoin Crosses $3,000 on Coindesk Index
Morgan Stanley says Bitcoin Needs Government Regulation to Rise Further Morgan Stanley made headlines this week when it said that the “rapid appreciation” of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, like Ethereum, had “elicited many inbound phone calls to both our banks and tech teams” as the gains continue to pique the interest of prospective investors. The white-shoe investment bank added, “Governmental acceptance would be required for this to further accelerate, the price of which is regulation.”

Are Banks Hoarding Cash? Debate Over “Free Money” Interest on Excess Reserves
In response to Free Money! Banks Paid $22 Billion to Not Lend? I received a comment from economist Professor George Selgin who said I do not know what I am talking about. Selgin made similar comments about Chris Whalen, Chairman of Whalen Global Advisors LLC,  in two supporting links. I also received a Tweet from economist Professor Steve Keen who said: “Mish Nails It“. Both viewpoints cannot be right. Let’s explore competing viewpoints on lending excess reserves, banks hoarding cash, and free m

Falling Rocks in the Promised Land - Gary Christenson
Yes, traumatic market events (falling rocks) occur, even though markets are “managed,” statistics are manipulated, and politicians pretend to care about something besides their next election. From John P. Hussman, Ph.D. Fair Value and Bubbles: 2017 Edition “Unfortunately, investors seem to have concluded that central bank easing is omnipotent, despite the fact that the Fed eased persistently and aggressively, to no effect, through the entire course of 2000-2002 and 2007-2009 market collapse

New Bill Would Require Declaration of Digital Currency Holdings when Entering U.S.
DCEBried//06-15-17 A bipartisan group of Senators introduced a new bill late last month that would require travelers to declare their digital currency holdings at all ports of entry into the United States. Senate bill S.1241 – the “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017” – was introduced by Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, and was co-sponsored by Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, John Cornyn, and Diane Feinstein. The bill includes language that directs the Secreta

  WILL GOLD REACH $2.6 MILLION OR JUST $150,000
Last week, we were again reminded of the global instability and disequilibrium. In the UK, the conservative Prime Minister Theresa May decided 9 weeks ago to call an election. This was done due to the conservatives being 20 percentage points ahead of their Labour rivals in the opinion polls which would have led to a strong backing for the Brexit negotiations as well as another five years in power. But things went disastrously wrong. An extremely badly run campaign by Mrs May and an opportunistic

GSB Weekly Review: FED Hikes, Dollar Climbs, Gold Slides
Gold and Silver Commentary: Gold bottomed in December of 2015 and again in December 2016, but gold prices have risen for the past six months.  The 50 day moving average (gold, but not yet silver) has crossed above the 200 day moving average – a so-called “golden cross.”  Expect higher prices for both gold and silver. Gold should move higher for several years given the increasingly dangerous global economic conditions, low interest rates and continual fiat currency devaluations.  A major stock ma

“Low-Interest Rate People”
It’s early Wednesday morning, with markets “quiet” ahead of what, in my very strong view will be, per the title of yesterday’s article, the “Fed’s last rate hike.” (ACTUALLY, THEY’RE NO LONGER “QUIET” AFTER THE HORRIFIC RETAIL SALES AND CPI PRINTS THAT JUST CAME OUT – DESCRIBED AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE – JUST BEFORE I HIT SEND). The reasons I believe so are explained in said article, so I’m not going to reiterate them here.  Then again, it doesn’t take an “expert” to realize raising rates into
