THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

Inflation v Deflation – State Finances
There is a general belief, and that is all it is, that state finances fare better in an inflationary environment than a deflationary one. This perception arises from the transfer of wealth from lenders to the state through a devaluation of the currency, which occurs with monetary inflation, compared with the transfer of wealth from the state to its creditors through deflation. The effect is undoubtedly true, even though it is played down by governments, but it ignores what happens to continuing

SELL CRYPTOS – BUY GOLD
During the 2006-9 financial crisis, a collapse of the global financial system was avoided by massive money printing, guarantees and allowing banks to value assets at cost rather than market, as well as a panic lowering of interest rates from as high as 6% in the US to zero or negative. Bonds issued by eight major countries currently have negative interest rates from 1 & 2 year debt for Italy up to 15 & 30 year debt for Japan, Germany and Switzerland. GLOBAL LIABILITIES OF $2 QUADRILLION Whateve

Earthquake In North Korea Was Less Than TWO MILES From The Nuclear Test Site
An earthquake struck North Korea less than two miles away from the reclusive nation’s nuclear test site.  The regime’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons is heightening tensions globally that are set to snap at any moment. The 2.5-magnitude earthquake which shook North Korea early Saturday morning near its nuclear test site was initially picked up by Seoul’s weather agency. According to Newsweek, around 7:45 a.m. local time, the quake struck Kilju, a county in the North Hamgyeong Province, the

The Chances Are Exactly Zero
Financial sanity and stability may not return, but we can protect our assets and learn from the discussion. The DOW, S&P500, NASDAQ and other markets sell at all-time highs. However, we know many imbalances exist within our financial world. This is not new – things have been crazy before, are now, and will be again. But to regain financial sanity we need: From “Doug Casey on the New Fed Chair” “In an ideal world there would be some radical changes. The best thing for the US in the (famous) long

What’s the Point
A reader emailed us, to ask a few pointed questions. Paraphrasing, they are: Who cares if dollars are calculated in gold or gold is calculated in dollars? People care only if their purchasing power has grown. What is the basis good for? Is it just mathematical play for gold theorists? How does knowing the basis help your readers? Is it just a theoretical explanation of what has already happened? Prove that if someone has known the basis for the last four years, he has benefitted. He also added

Torgny Persson: Even if you don't eat it, gold has unique advantages
Bullion Star proprietor Torgny Persson today demolishes the old disparagement about gold's value in emergencies -- that you can't eat it. In fact you can, Persson notes, even if it provides no nutritional value. But, Persson asks, what financial instrument is edible? In emergencies, Persson notes, gold has advantages over other financial instruments. "Since gold is a universal money supported by a highly liquid global market, it will always be accepted everywhere at the going gold price," Perss

The True Meaning of Bitcoin's 'Success'
In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian's rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to ful

Gold and Silver versus Twilight Zone Bubbles
Every bubble inflates, rises vertically, excites the masses (get rich now – don’t be left behind), appears unstoppable and crashes. The sun rises and sets. Twilight emerges. Empires, markets, and ideas enter their twilight zone where huge changes occur. Those changes may not happen next week or next month, but soon. Expect the bubbles in stocks and bonds to burst, as they inevitably must, and precious metals to rise – finally! Consider the following bubble examples: Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin.

  Why gold is better than cash 
The question most often asked of gold bulls is, “At what price will you take your profits?” It is a question that betrays a lack of understanding about why anyone should own gold. Nevertheless, the simple answer must be, “When paper money stops losing its value”. This response should alert anyone who asks this question to the idea that owning fiat cash is the speculative position, not ownership of precious metals.

If Inflation is Too Low... Explain These Three Charts
Everywhere one looks, inflation is roaring. Oil is about to hit $60 a barrel, having risen 10% this year alone. Moreover, home prices have hit new all-time highs, surpassing even their 2006 peaks. Don't forget that inflation expectations are breaking out to the upside as well. Put simply, inflation is appearing all over the economy. And yet, the Fed continues to peddle the ridiculous assertion that inflation is "too low." Why then... are they pushing to hike rates again, for the fourth time i

Why Capital Controls Usually Fail, China Versus Bitcoin Edition - John Rubino
One of the recurring themes of financial history is government over-reach leading citizens to mistrust the local currency and move money overseas, prompting the government to try to trap that wealth within its borders. This nearly always fails because rich people are clever and borders are really hard to seal. The latest chapter in this story involves China – which has engineered an epic debt binge in the past decade, and bitcoin – which has emerged as a highly efficient way to move capita

WARNING: The US Stock Market Has A 70 Chance Of Crashing RIGHT NOW
Vanguard’s chief economist Joe Davis said investors need to be prepared for a significant downturn in the stock market, which is now at a 70 percent chance of crashing.  That chance is significantly higher than it has been over the past 60 years. The economist added, “It’s unreasonable to expect rates of returns, which exceeded our own bullish forecast from 2010, to continue.” In its annual report, the company told investors to expect no better than four to six percent returns from stocks in the

We Have Tripled The Number Of Store Closings From Last Year, And 20 Major Retailers Have Closed At Least 50 Stores In 2017
This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Did you know that the number of retail store closings in 2017 has already tripled the number from all of 2016? Last year, a total of 2,056 store locations were closed down, but this year more than 6,700 stores have been shut down so far. That absolutely shatters the all-time record for store closings in a single year, and yet nobody seems that concerned about it.  In 2008, an all-time record 6,163 retail stores wer

The Dumbest Dumb Money Finally Gets Suckered In - John Rubino
Corporate share repurchases have turned out to be a great mechanism for converting Federal Reserve easing into higher consumer spending. Just allow public companies to borrow really cheaply and one of the things they do with the resulting found money is repurchase their stock. This pushes up equity prices, making investors feel richer and more willing to splurge on the kinds of frivolous stuff (new cars, big houses, extravagant vacations) that produce rising GDP numbers. For politicians an

Bitcoin could devour the whole financial world, RT's Max Keiser suspects
From Russia Today, Moscow Monday, November 27, 2017 While some have suggested bitcoin's meteoric rise signals a potential cryptocurrency bubble, RT's Max Keiser says fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar are collapsing against it. "I think we are seeing fiat currencies in a hyperinflationary collapse against bitcoin," he said, adding that we'll see a major price correction somewhere at the $25,000 per bitcoin level. "Up until that price is achieved, it looks like we'll see a pretty strong upward

The Big Picture for Gold
Rudi Fronk and Jim Anthony, cofounders of Seabridge Gold, explain the "Potent Director Fallacy," and describe what this belief system means for gold and other markets. This is a very frustrating period for gold investors. Global financial and geopolitical risks appear to be very high but gold has not responded. Gold and gold stocks are range-trading and have been since early March of this year. Gold is in a roughly $150 range (about 15%) while the HUI,

How to Know When a Bull Market Is About to End
Knowing when a bull market is about to end is critical for both traders and investors. Why?

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be expanding on this topic to add several more parts because there are some really exciting things you should know as we move towards 2018. So, let’s k
