One Big, Potential Catalyst for Gold in 2018
The rebound in the precious metals sector continues. Friday, Gold pushed to another new high, near $1340/oz. Gold stocks led by the HUI Gold Bugs Index and GDX also made a new high with juniors and Silver right behind. The greatest traders say the move comes first and then the reason later. When it comes to Gold we are always analyzing the reason behind the moves so we can distinguish between reactions and reflex moves and those moves that are part of a real bull market. The market may be starti

George F. Smith - Barbarous Relic
  Fielding my grandson’s questions about gold and banking
My grandson had quite a day at school.He had learned that the economy had been suffering from things called Panics, capital P, during the 19th century and had another big one in the early 20th century.He had been told that responsible, public-spirited men like J. P. Morgan had organized a central bank to prevent those Panics.He and other bankers finally got the government to go along with their idea and pass it into law in late 1913.And wouldn’t you know it — we’ve had no more Panics since then.

Can Technology Prevent a Recession?
The world has come a long way since the heady days before the Great Depression of the 1930s. Technology, for one thing, has meant vast changes to our way of life and indeed to significant improvements in our economic productivity. Indeed, it is sometimes argued that these technological advances now make us depression-proof.Of course, the same line of reasoning — vast improvements in technology over successive decades making the world immune to massive slumps — could have been made before the 193

Silver Antidote to Bubble Craziness
CHARACTERISTICS OF BUBBLE CRAZINESS: U.S. stocks, according to many measures, are the most over-valued in history. We live in a Bubble Zone! Bitcoin and other cryptos are definitely in a bubble, but they could rise even higher. Bonds yield little, and in many European countries, less than zero. Central banks have created this distortion to the detriment of savers, insurance companies and pension funds. Real estate: Some locations, such as New Zealand, Canada and Australia are up a factor of 8 t

Stock Selloffs Great for Gold
The stock markets have rocketed higher since Trump’s election win on hopes for big corporate tax cuts.  This extreme rally has left stocks exceedingly overvalued and overbought today.  A major selloff is long overdue and likely imminent.  When stocks inevitably roll over and mean revert lower to rebalance away euphoric sentiment, gold is the main beneficiary.  Gold investment demand soars when stocks materially slide. Two trading days before the November 2016 p

Macroeconomic Outlook for 2018 and Gold
Luckily or not, 2017 is behind us. It was a positive year for the gold market, as the yellow market gained more than 12 percent.

The Marginal Productivity of Debt
The paper mill on the Potomac is furiously spewing up new money. According to the manager of the mill, as indeed according to the Quantity Theory of Money, this should stop prices from falling and the economy from contracting. In this article I present an argument why this conclusion is not valid

Why Fractional-Reserve Banking Would Be Limited in an Unhampered Market
The so-called multiplier arises as a result of the fact that banks are legally permitted to use money that is placed in demand deposits. Banks treat this type of money as if it was loaned to them, thus loaning it out while simultaneously allowing depositors to spend that money.RELATED: "Austrians, Fractional Reserves, and the Money Multiplier" by Robert BatemarcoFor example, if John places $100 in demand deposit at Bank One he doesn't relinquish his claim over the deposited $100. He has unlimite

What was the 'strong-dollar policy' except gold leasing and price suppression?

Interest Rates Walking On Narrow Ledge
There is a huge shock in store for those who have been lulled to sleep by a stock market that has become accustomed to no volatility and only an upward direction. And that alarm bell can be found in the price action of Bitcoin, which recently tumbled over 40% is less than a week. For the implosion within the cryptocurrency world foreshadows what will happen with the major averages as the Federal Reserve futilely attempts to stop monetizing the exploding mountain of U.S. debt.

Gold’s Fundamental Outlook for 2017
Predicting, especially the future, is very difficult. Still, let’s try to figure out what investors should expect from the gold market next year. For sure, in the long run, the price of gold will mainly depend on the U.S. dollar, the real interest rates, and the market uncertainty. How will these factors develop and affect the gold market? Well, as one can see in the chart below, the level of investors’ confidence has strengthened recently, as both the market volatility (represented by the CBOE

Black Magic Fraud to be Exposed in 2017 – Gold up 300X 
At the beginning of a new year it would be totally natural to forecast what the likely events and trends will be for 2017. A lot of experts around the world will predict a number of “new” events as if a lot of things will change just because we are entering a new year. But sadly, I will disappoint everyone and not change direction in any single area that I have been talking about for many years. Trends don’t change because we are in a new year. The principal long term trends take a long time to

  Trump's Ignorance 
The president elect of the US, Mr. Trump, does not know what he is doing when he proposes protectionist measures to encourage the reindustrialization of the US and bring home again, the American industry that emigrated to foreign lands. The US lost their industry as a result of the Bretton Woods Agreements, which were signed (under pressure) by representatives of the allied countries and of the countries conquered by the US in World War II. Those Agreements established the world's monetary syst

Gold Price: The Significance Of $1320
I told subscribers to expect $1320 to function as a headwind for gold on this rally, and that’s happening right on schedule. This is the important weekly gold chart.
