2018 Inflation 'Concerns' See Gold Price Rally Before Fed Rate Rise
GOLD PRICES rallied $10 per ounce from yesterday's fresh 5-month lows against the Dollar in Asian trade Wednesday, only to lose half that bounce in London as traders looked to today's key US monetary policy decision from the Federal Reserve. With US inflation data due later on Wednesday, just before the US Fed's widely-expected quarter-point hike to interest rates, new data this morning put Germany's consumer-price index 1.8% higher in November

The Infinite Potential of Blockchain Technology
Many people have now heard of bitcoin and cryptocurrency.  And many have heard the term “blockchain” thrown around.  But what is this new technology, and why is it such a big deal?  How does it work? What other uses for blockchain exist outside of facilitating financial transactions?  How does it make traditional banking obsolete? Blockchain defined A blockchain is a distributed ledger of transactions that use cryptography to keep exchanges secure.  A distributed network of computers verifies or

CPM Group’s Jeff Christian Responds “NEGATIVELY” To The SRSrocco Report On Silver Investment Demand
The debate continues between the SRSrocco Report and CPM Group’s Jeff Christian on the fundamentals of the silver market.  After my article, in which I questioned the CPM Group’s exclusion of silver investment demand from their supply and demand analysis, Jeff Christian responded with a comment on my website.  I am glad that Mr. Christian responded because it now allows me the opportunity to explain in more detail why I disagree with the CPM Group’s analysis.As I have mentioned before, this has

Spot Gold Halves Post-2014 Recovery vs. Euro Ahead of Fed, ECB, BoE Decisions as Middle East Tensions Worsen
SPOT GOLD prices failed to hold a 0.4% overnight rally from new 5-month lows in London on Tuesday, slipping back as world stock markets rose again ahead of tomorrow's key US Fed decision on Dollar interest rates amid worsening tensions in the Middle East.

North Korea Hacks Bitcoin Exchanges Attempting To Steal Amid Bubble Warnings
The value of soaring crypto-currencies is creating a bubble financial analysts continue to warn about, but it’s also making it overly appealing to cyber thieves.  North Korean hackers are now attempting to steal bitcoin, as experts warn of an impending financial dilemma. Ashley Shen, an independent security researcher, said: “We assume one of the reasons why Bitcoin is being attacked is because the price keeps increasing and we think it’s reasonable for hackers (to target).

Cryptojunkies: Beware the Ides of December
It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial traders. The weekly COT for that week showed an aggregate short position of a miniscule 2,911 contracts down from the earlier highs of over 300,000 contracts. About six weeks later, despite the earlier bottom in gold, the HUI (NYSE Ar

Should I Buy “Collectible” Silver? The 3 Criteria to Look For
We get the same question every time we release a new proprietary GoldSilver product: why should I buy your silver round instead of a standard bullion product like an Eagle?There are several answers to that question—they can be a great way to diversify, they’re unique in the marketplace, and they might reflect values that you share.But the biggest answer of all is this: because you might make a bigger profit.That’s a bold statement, because like most things in life, there are no guarantees.

Merry Christmas to You—Bullion Premiums at Multi-Year Lows
There’s nothing like a bargain during the holidays. And here’s an unexpected one even I was surprised to see…It’s not easy to dig up industry-wide data on coin and bar premiums. To do it manually is incredibly time-consuming and then would be out of date as soon as you published it, since premiums always fluctuate.But we’ve snagged both wholesale and retail data from a couple sources. And there’s a very clear message from these statistics: gold bullion is on the SALE rack…Wholesale Prices: Plung

Bitcoin Mania Parabolic
Bitcoin’s meteoric skyrocketing this year has been astonishing, captivating traders across the globe.  This once-obscure cryptocurrency has exploded into the world’s hottest market.  With fortunes being won on paper, everyone is talking about bitcoin.  But with its price shooting parabolic, unfortunately this wild ride has all the hallmarks of a classic popular speculative mania.  And those all end badly, totally collapsing.

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

Fake Tax Reform
After supposedly chomping on the bit for years to pass meaningful tax reform, Republicans are now set to blow an historic opportunity. Whatever version of the Bill that emerges from the House and Senate Conference Committee (which will be signed by President Trump faster than he can down a Filet o’Fish), will be far less than the Republicans envisioned when they finally captured the White House and both Congressional Chambers in 2016. But from what I have seen of the particulars, the revisions t

Is Volume/Breadth Aligned With Bullish Case?
An August 2016 analysis outlined a long-term bullish signal for stocks that has occurred only ten other times in the last thirty-five years. If we fast forward to December 2017, is market breadth/volume aligning with or contradicting bullish data we have in hand? The chart below shows up/down volume (1996-2010) for the NYSE Composite Stock Index, along with its 50-week moving average (thick blue line).

State-sponsored cryptocurrencies revisited
In a blog post earlier this week I briefly argued that “government-controlled cryptocurrency” was a contradiction in terms. It depends on what is meant by “cryptocurrency”, but now that I’ve done some more research on the subject I understand how a central bank could make use of blockchain technology and why the government would want to implement a type of cryptocurrency. My understanding of the subject was improved by reading the white paper on the “Fedcoin” published a few months ago by Yale U
