The Power of Two: A Primer for the Lay Investor
The Mercenary Geologist investing philosophy requires actively trading stocks. There are no “buy and hold” scenarios in my portfolio. That said, there are trades and there are investments but that’s a subject to be tackled in a future musing. My trading methodology employs a very conservative strategy to speculate in a very high risk market sector.

Bond Market Bear Creating Gold Bull
Gold is climbing as bond yields rise and the dollar falls, over speculation that China is pulling back on buying US Treasuries and Japan signals it is winding down its quantitative easing program. Meanwhile, US debt continues to grow after the Republicans under President Trump pushed a trillion dollars worth of tax cuts through the Senate, that the Congressional Budget Office thinks will add $1.7 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. The dollar, 10 year yields and golds price

Exploring the "Dollar Crash" Thesis in Pictures
People have been predicting a crash in the US dollar for something like forever. Let's investigate another crash thesis. ZeroHedge reports the "World's Most Bearish Hedge Fund" has a "Stunning" Theory What Happens Next to the Dollar. Bear in mind the views that follow are not that of ZeroHedge but rather that of Horseman Global CIO Russell Clark who went 100% short in 2016 with negative results. Clark did make money in 2017, an impressive result given the performance of the major indexes. Clark

Gold Prices Track Rising US Bond Yields Closest Since 1987 as Government Shutdown Looms
GOLD PRICES rose against the falling Dollar but held flat or fell versus other major currencies on Friday as the US faced a possible government shutdown over lawmakers' failure to agree a 2018 budget. Asian and European stock markets shrugged off last night's drop in New York stocks but major government bond prices slipped as the emergency US funding bill – needed to avert a government shutdown in Washington – passed the House only

The truth about trade
The one subject, which became a headline issue last year, and even divides experts is trade. It will become increasingly important in 2018 as the US develops her trade policy, particularly with respect to China, and as the UK negotiates her Brexit terms with the EU. Ignorance dominates this subject. Surely, people say, industry should be protected from unfair trade practices, such as goods manufactured in foreign sweat-shops, or unfair dumping of commodities, such as steel. If President Trump ca

Gold Trading 'Calmer' as China's GDP Accelerates, UK Pound Jumps as Brexit Bill Passed

Will Surge in Bond Yields Smash Gold?
Yields on U.S. Treasuries have leaped recently. It will wreck the yellow metal. Or maybe not. Yields Reach New Heights. Breakthrough for Gold? Last week, we wrote that concerns emerged that China could stop or slow buying the U.S. Treasuries. The U.S. bond yields reacted strongly. We noted that in theory it should sink gold, but the usual “correlation between bullion and Treasury yields broke down thanks to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, which supported the gold prices”. Due to the importa

China Considers “Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries”
Just when you might begin to wonder what could possibly be the latest nail in the coffin of the U.S. dollar, news breaks that China is now publicly considering walking away from the U.S. government debt market. Last Wednesday Bloomberg reported that, “Senior government officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries.” China is currently the largest foreign holder of U.S. government debt. Which is why it would

Crypto Gold Will Expose Fraudulent COMEX, LBMA and GLD
Honest commerce is a good platform from which to have good international relations. Foisting empty dollars on countries around the world whom you trade with, that are created out of thin air, is not conducive to peaceable international relations.

Chinese Physical Gold Investment Demand Surges While Americans Pile Into Stock and Crypto Bubbles
Chinese demand for physical gold investment surged in the first three-quarters of 2017 while Americans ditched the shiny yellow metal for increased bets in the crypto mania and stock market bubble market.  Even though China’s Hang Seng Stock Market outperformed the Dow Jones Index last year, Chinese citizens purchased the most gold bar and coin products Q1-Q3 2017 since the same period in 2013, when they took advantage of huge gold market price selloff.According to the World Gold Council, Chines

Is China Moving Forward With The Petroyuan?
In recent months rumors have swirled that China may be on the verge of launching the PetroYuan, a setup that would allow them to purchase oil without using dollars. Now there are reports from Zero Hedge and OilPrice.com that the contract system is being tested, and conceivably not that far from launch. According to Zero Hedge, “149 members of Shanghai International Energy Exchange traded 647,930 lots in the drill with total value of 268.2b yuan, according to a statement from the exchange, which

Gold Stocks Are Bullion On Fed Steroids
Gold and related investments are off to a very positive start in 2018. I don’t expect any major pause in the action until China’s Golden Week holiday celebrations get underway. Chinese gold dealers will be on holiday this year from about February 15 to February 21. This creates a significant vacuum in gold demand. As dealers and Chinese gold markets close, the gold price tends to soften in global markets. The good news is that gold has a rough general tendency to rally strongly ahead of the Go

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.

World Debt Is Rising Nearly Three Times As Fast As Total Global Wealth
Some nasty dark clouds are forming on the financial horizon as total world debt is increasing nearly three times as fast as total global wealth.   But, that’s okay because no one cares about the debt, only the assets matter nowadays.  You see, as long as debts are someone else’s problem, we can add as much debt as we like… or so the market believes.Now, you don’t have to take my word for it that the market only focuses on the assets, this comes straight from the top echelons of the financial wor
