Venezuela Announces “the Petro” Currency Backed by Gold, Oil and Diamonds - Rory Hall
I sent this to Chris Powell, GATA, and he asked, what about the “convertibility”? Apparently, Venezuelan President Madura is following China’s lead, but instead of a subtle rollout over time as to not cause some kind of market shake-up, he has decided that now is as good a time as any to announce the creation of a new digital currency: the Petro, backed by Venezuela’s gold, oil and diamond reserves. Venezuela is creating a digital currency to combat a financial blockade by the United Sta

When viewing the gold market from a historical perspective, one thing that’s clear is that the junior mining stocks tend to fluctuate between extreme boom and bust cycles. As a group, they’ll double in price, then crash by 75%... then double or triple or even quadruple again, onl

Is the Difference Now Permanent?
From the Slope of Hope: I will start off with a chart that, in a sea of tens of thousands of charts, stood out as shocking: What the chart represents is the percentage drop from whatever the record high was. In other words, it shows the percentage loss a person would have had if they had bought at the highest point in the history of the market. What stunned me about the chart was how for nearly half a decade stocks have been absolutely "pinned" to the top. There was a tiny dip in late 2015, but

Hardness, color and clarity scales
The Mohs scale measures the hardness or durability of minerals and natural gemstones. Hardness refers to the gemstone’s ability to resist abrasion. In other words, it describes the stone’s capacity to resist scratches from other minerals. If you were to take a diamond (has the highest score) and try to scratch its surface with a ruby (the next highest score), you would be unsuccessful. However, if you were to take the diamond and scratch the surface of a ruby, it would cause a scratch in the ruby stone.
