If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part V-Rigging Versus Reality
It’s early Monday, and let’s start by clearing our heads of the ramifications of yesterday’s first round of the French Presidential election process – in which, as expected, 39-year Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild Bank investment banker whose only political experience was miserably failing as “Economy Minister” under outgoing President Francois Hollande (whose approval rating was so low – principally because the French economy has collapsed – he didn’t run for re-election); running under a

Gold Price Sinks as 'Markets Favorite' Macron Beats Anti-Euro Le Pen in France's 1st Round
GOLD PRICES fell at the fastest pace in 2 weeks on Monday morning in London as pro-growth centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron received the highest number of votes in the first round of France's presidential election, with world stock markets jumping amid a sell-off in 'safe haven' government bonds, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Crude oil slipped back below $50 per barrel after an overnight jump, but the Euro held at 1-m

Ready, Set, Splat.
As I write, the French stock market (the CAC 40), is doing a grand jeté (up 4.5 percent!) in celebration of Emmanuel Macron’s assumed slaying of the dragon Le Pen. But that was just the first round under the interesting French election system. Consider that two other candidates who were eliminated, Monsieurs Fillon and Mélenchon, got nearly 40 percent of the vote. Are we so sure about where their voters go in the second and final round two weeks from now? I suspect that most Americans — even the

  If You Understand History and Economics, You Understand Gold 
by Egon von Greyerz How can ordinary people ever understand the importance of gold when they are continuously fed with false and distorted facts. The latest publication to publish false and ignorant propaganda on gold is the British weekly magazine the Economist. The article begins with a graph of gold starting in September 2011. Anyone who knows anything about gold recognises that this is the time when gold reached a peak of $1,930. Between 1999 and 2011 gold had gone from $250 to $1,930 which

Target2 and Secret Bailouts: Will Germany be Forced Into a Fiscal Union with Rest of Eurozone?
Project Syndicate writer, Hans-Werner Sinn, explains why the ECB’s asset purchases and Target2 imbalances constitute “Europe’s Secret Bailout”. Under the ECB’s QE program, which started in March 2015, eurozone members’ central banks buy private market securities for €1.74 trillion ($1.84 trillion), with more than €1.4 trillion to be used to purchase their own countries’ government debt. The QE program seems to be symmetrical because each central bank repurchases its own government debt in propo

Pollsters Get One Right: Macron and Le Pen Square Off in Round Two as Expected
Emanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will square off in round two of the French elections as most expected. Here are a few clips from Guardian French Presidential Election Live Evening summary Emmanuel Macron has beaten the far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the first round of the French presidential election, with a projected total of 23.7% to Le Pen’s 21.9%. The two candidates – the first pro-European and internationalist, the other anti-EU and protectionist – will now face off in a second round

  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

A ‘disaster for France’ if Melenchon, Le Pen go head-to-head in presidential runoff
MarketWatch/Mike Bird & Christopher Whittall/04-19-17 With the start of the French election just days away, investors are contemplating their nightmare scenario: a choice between far-left and far-right candidates. In recent days, a surge in opinion polls has placed Jean-Luc Mélenchon, a left-wing firebrand who promises higher wages and fewer working hours, as a potential candidate to move past this Sunday’s first round of voting. That could set up a second-round vote in May 7 with Marine Le Pen,

Confusion Reigns. . .
A few days ago, I postulated that despite the seasonal weakness most were anticipating in May and despite the sharp increase in Commercial shorting that was still below 2016 levels, the precious metals would buck conventional wisdom and advance further into even greater degrees of overbought status. On Tuesday morning, after watching 22,000 contracts in June Gold completely wipe out every bid down to $1,280.60, causing a sympathetic crash in silver down to $18.06, I was not only ready to break

The Powers That Be Are Screaming For QE And NIRP To Infinity
I have a LOT to say this morning – all if it, extremely important.  But first, let’s start, mere hours before the third Miles Franklin Silver All-Star Panel Webinar – which will be posted at milesfranklin.com later today; with this article from one of our distinguished panelists, Steve St. Angelo of the SRS Rocco Report.  In which, it details how Peruvian gold and silver production, in the year’s first two months, are down, unexpectedly, by 11% and 12%, respectively, from a year ago.  Which is q

America’s financial war strategy
AbstractAmerica’s renewed desire to escalate military tensions is a front for America’s continual financial war, this time directed at North Korea, Syria and possibly Iran. This is likely to be the opinion of China’s strategic advisors. We analyse the geopolitics and economics behind America’s war strategy from China’s perspective, concluding that it is entering its final phase. China’s exit plan appears to be to tie the pricing of energy and then other major commodities to gold, returning to th

April 23rd-A Potential Turning Point For The “99”
For the first time in the 15 years I have been in the Precious Metals space, I truly believe we are witnessing the “last days of the gold Cartel.”  However, we’re not there yet – as evidenced by the fact that despite a blizzard of PiMBEEB, or “Precious Metal bullish, everything-else bearish” headlines since markets closed for the three-day holiday weekend; from Friday’s horrifying March (and downwardly revised February) retail sales reports, causing the Fed to reduce its 1Q GDP estimate to just

A Permanently High Plateau
Margin debt hits fresh new highs, but according to status quo puppets, nothing to worry about because its different this time. (i.e. just like 1929 – in the words of Irving Fisher, “a permanently high plateau” [of prosperity].) And in a sense such talk is correct, because the markets have never been more rigged, however even with this, the bureaucracy’s price managers will fail at some point (stocks usually peak a few months after a margin debt peak), as all faulty and unfair systems self-destru

Cashless, Your Loan to the Banks: Who Gets “First Access to Your Money”
This article was written by Lauren Wright and originally published at Activist Post. Editor’s Comment: Talk about control. The coming era of digital, cashless money is one in which the banking institutions and money creators hold all the power. No longer will cash and personal holdings do it; everyone must go through the system, and hold an account, just to do business. All transactions are automatically under scrutiny and de facto suspicion; everything you do is monitored and traced. Meanwhile,

SUPERNOVA, WAR AND $64 TRILLION GOLD
By Egon von Greyerz As we approach the beginning of the greatest wealth destruction in history, it is an absolute certainty that no one will escape the suffering that will be brought upon the world. The ones who will suffer the least financially are of course the poorest since they have very little to lose. At the same time, many of the poor will die of famine and disease. The middle class will also suffer since many will lose their jobs. They will lose pensions as well, since pension funds will

Death Spiral for the LBMA Gold and Silver auctions?
In a bizarre series of events that have had limited coverage but which are sure to have far-reaching consequences for benchmark pricing in the precious metals markets, the LBMA Gold Price and LBMA Silver Price auctions both experienced embarrassing trading glitches over consecutive trading days on Monday 10 April and Tuesday 11 April. At the outset, its worth remembering that both of these London-based benchmarks are Regulated Benchmarks, regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Death Of A Presidency, An Empire, And A Monetary System
I’m 46 years old, and grew up in New York; and thus, know a lot about Donald Trump.  Consequently, if at any time before last summer, you told me he’d one day be President, I would have laughed until I cried.  After all, a man famous for bad marriages; a big, insulting mouth; and massively overleveraged investments in some of the worst imaginable businesses – from Atlantic City casinos, to the United States Football League – was as far from what I’d consider “Presidential material” as I could im

The Daily Market Report: Gold Remains Well Bid Near 5-Month Highs
USAGOLD/Peter A. Grant/04-12-17 Gold remains well bid in the wake of solid gains on Tuesday. The yellow metal is now up more than 10% year-to-date. Silver is up more than 15% on the year, despite the fact this is has been unable to take out its previously established high from February at 18.48. According to Janet Yellen, the Fed is pivoting from stimulus to sustain mode, even as considerable growth risks persist.
