The Daily Market Report: Gold Firms as Fed and ECB Lean Dovish
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-17-17 Gold remains generally well bid after once again nearing the high for the year at 1296.06 in earlier trade. Last week’s high at 1292.05 provides an intervening barrier. The yellow metal rebounded strongly after the FOMC minutes from the July meeting revealed heightened concern over dimming inflation prospects. Former Fed insider Danielle DiMartino-Booth categorizes the minutes as “very dovish,” which further erodes the prospects for another rate hike this year. Ms. D

Gold Prices Advance towards Resistance on Weak Dollar and Cautious FOMC Minutes, Palladium Hits 16-Year High
GOLD PRICES rallied towards its resistance level this Thursday morning in London, while the US Dollar remained weak after rather dovish hints from Fed officials suggesting that the next rate hike may be further postponed, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold briefly touched $1289 per ounce before dropping back to $1286 failing to reach the resistance level of $1294 and the psychological barrier of $1300.  The metal started its rise from $1268 on Thursday after

June FOMC Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June meeting were released. What do they say about the Fed’s stance and what do they mean for the gold market? How can we summarize the recent FOMC minutes? Well, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. But the most important discussion concerned three other issues. First, several participants noted uncertainty about the future course of the

Central Banks Are Hiding the True Price of Risk
If you invest your money, you will have to deal with numerous risks. For instance, if you buy a bond, you run the risk of the borrower defaulting or being repaid with debased money. As a stock investor, you face the risk that the company's business model will not live up to expectations, or that it, at the extreme, will go bankrupt. In an unhampered financial market, prices are formed for these and other risk factors.For instance, a bond with a high default risk will typically carry a high yield

August 2007: When the Central Bank Con-Trick Failed
"Whatever it takes" has so far equaled $15 trillion of QE... WEDNESDAY this week marks the 10th anniversary of what pundits, analysts and most investors now agree was the start of the global financial crisis, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault.

5 Reasons to Fear the Fall
This powerful and protracted bull market has made Cassandras look foolish for a long time. Those who went on record predicting that massive central bank manipulation of markets would not engender viable economic growth have been proven correct. However, these same individuals failed to fully anticipate the willingness of momentum-trading algorithms to take asset prices very far above the underlying level of economic growth. Nevertheless, there are five reasons to believe that this fall will fina

Why Bitcoin Will Make Gold And Silver Go Up, PT ll
Ho hum.  Another first Friday of the month, and another fabricated “jobs” report with not a shred of correlation to real economic activity.  Like, for instance, the completely ignored fact that – as I have discussed ad nauseum – the BLS’ “birth-death model”; which as we recently learned, accounts for 93% of all new “jobs” since the 2008 crisis; is based on the creation of unreported jobs at small businesses.  This, despite the “inconvenient truth” that more small businesses have “died” since 200

Central Banks’ Hawkish Turn and Gold
A lot happened since the latest issue of the Market Overview. To begin with, there were two unusual flash crashes both in the gold and silver markets. Although their occurrence within just one week was rather fishy, the fundamentals of precious metals remained unchanged. On the political front, gold was supported temporarily by the revelation of the Donald Trump Jr.’s emails suggesting that Russia wanted to support his father’s presidential campaign.

War on Cash Proposals in Australia: Microchip Expiring $100 Bills, Forcing People to Keep Receipts 
Australia’s Black Economy Taskforce has come up with a list of 35 “consumer-focused” proposals to crack down on cash. The taskforce blames consumers for holding cash and for not getting receipts. Michael Andrew, the head of the taskforce, proposes nanochips in $50 and $100 notes so the government knows where the cash is. Cash will expire after a designated period of time. Andrew believes “consumers are part of the problem”. He wants to punish people who pay in cash and don’t get a receipt. A pl

EU Deposit Insurance, a Bank Crisis in Italy and Greece, and the Coming Ban on Cash

Bank Runs are Inevitable – How to Protect Your Assets
I haven’t thought much about bank runs in recent years. The Federal Reserve came to the rescue during the 2008 financial crisis and restored confidence in the markets.

This week, two member of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) governing council gave speeches. What can we learn from them?

Mersch pointed out that “the global recovery is firming and broadening”, while and “the ongoing economic expansion in the euro area provides confidence.” He even reiterated the opinion that the de

The Answer To The Most Frequently Asked Question
It’s early Tuesday, and it’s hard to recall a day where complacency reigned so supremely.  The product, of course, of the historic market manipulation that exponentially “stair-stepped” on Election night – when Trump’s “BrExit times 10” dealt a mortal blow to TPTB, forever ending America’s role as a global “superpower.”  Not because Trump the person makes a whit of difference – as frankly, it would be impossible for him to be worse than Hillary (and Bill) Clinton.  But instead, as said “powers t
