Speculating Our Way to Prosperity
We have been discussing the consumption of capital. Last week, for example, we concluded with: “We see people eating more of the seed corn.” Morally, socialism is the enslavement of man to man. If you create something, they want not just to take it from you, but to render you unable to create anything else. They declare that the ideal is “from each according to his ability.” This is about the most perfect expression of envy ever put into words. By envy, we mean the hatred of the good for being t

Stock Selloffs Great for Gold
The stock markets have rocketed higher since Trump’s election win on hopes for big corporate tax cuts.  This extreme rally has left stocks exceedingly overvalued and overbought today.  A major selloff is long overdue and likely imminent.  When stocks inevitably roll over and mean revert lower to rebalance away euphoric sentiment, gold is the main beneficiary.  Gold investment demand soars when stocks materially slide. Two trading days before the November 2016 p

Gold-Stock Upside Huge
The gold miners’ stocks have huge upside potential in 2018, likely the best among stock-market sectors.  They really lagged gold last year, so a major mean-reversion catch-up rally is coming.  The gold miners are universally ignored and deeply undervalued relative to the metal which drives their profits.  And gold itself is likely to power dramatically higher this year as euphoric record-high stock markets inevitably start to falter. Gold has always been the le

A Golden Anchor for the Dollar
Dr Warren Coats, former Chief of the SDR with the title Assistant Director of the Monetary and Financial Systems Department at the IMF penned an article on a return to the gold standard in 2013 – A Hard Anchor for the Dollar. Not a classic gold standard, but an “updated version” of a gold standard that would allow for entities like the IMF, World Bank and BIS to stay involved and be part of the global banking system. This would allow these global banks to continue dictating monetary policy and c

Stock Markets Hyper-Risky 2
The US stock markets enjoyed an extraordinary surge in 2017, shattering all kinds of records.  This was fueled by hopes for big tax cuts soon since Republicans regained control of the US government.  But such relentless rallying has catapulted complacency, euphoria, and valuations to dangerous bull-slaying extremes.  This has left today’s beloved and lofty stock markets hyper-risky, with serious selloffs looming large. History proves that stock markets are fore

Imaginations of the Misguided
aheadoftheherd.com The end of the world as we know it It’s Christmas 2017 and North Korean Dear Leader Kim Jong-un is facing a crisis. Recently the United States, with UN approval, imposed the harshest round of economic sanctions yet on his reclusive regime. While North Korea has been sanctioned since 2006 due to continuing attempts to develop nuclear weapons, this new provocation by its sworn nemesis is the last straw for Kim, who feels the great legacies of his father and grandfather, Kim

Bubble Watch: The Fed KNOWS We're in a 1999-Type Mania...
The Fed raised rates another 0.25% the week before last. This marks the 5th rate hike since the Fed embarked on its policy tightening in December 2015 and the fourth rate hike in the last 12 months. The Fed’s latest statement also indicates it plans on raising rates three more times in 2018. It is easy to gloss over the significance of this, but the Fed’s actions are indeed unusual; other major Central Banks (the Swiss National Bank, Bank of Japan, European Central Bank and Bank of England) are

Gold Stocks Coiled Spring 2
The gold miners’ stocks largely ground sideways in 2017, lagging gold’s solid rally.  Being trapped in this vexing consolidation has decimated sentiment, leaving a bearish wasteland bereft of hope.  But contrary to perceptions, this deeply-out-of-favor sector is actually a coiled spring today.  Gold stocks are ready to surge dramatically higher as psychology inevitably shifts, pointing to much higher prices coming in 2018. The main appeal of gold-mining stocks

ECB Meeting in December 2017 and Gold
On Thursday, the European Central Bank released its most recent monetary policy statement. What does it say about the ECB’s stance and what does it imply for the gold market? It was a hot weekend for central banking. On Wednesday, the FOMC hiked interest rates and presented fresh economic projections. We will come back to this event on Monday, but today we will analyze yesterday’s ECB meeting. Contrary to the Fed, the ECB kept its monetary policy unchanged. But similarly to the U.S. central bank

Gold Bullish on Fed Hike 2
Gold has been battered lower in recent months as gold-futures speculators fled in dread of the Fed-rate-hike boogeyman.  As universally expected, the Fed’s 5th rate hike of this cycle indeed came to pass this week.  When gold didn’t collapse as irrationally feared, the cowering futures traders were quick to start returning.  Past Fed rate hikes have actually proven very bullish for gold, and this latest one will be no exception. Back in early September, gold wa

Europe, Brexit and the credit cycle 
Europe’s financial and systemic troubles have retreated from the headlines. This is partly due to the financial media’s attention switching to President Trump and the US budget negotiations, partly due to Brexit and the preoccupation with Britain’s problems, and partly due to evidence of economic recovery in the Eurozone, at long last. And finally, anyone who can put digit to computer key has been absorbed by the cryptocurrency phenomenon.Just because commentary is focused elsewhere does not mea

Alasdair Macleod: Europe, Brexit, and the credit cycle
GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod writes today that the euro is the most vulnerable major currency and thus most vulnerable to cryptocurrencies when the European Central Bank begins the next round of wholesale money creation to save the European banking system. Macleod's analysis is headlined "Europe, Brexit, and the Credit Cycle" and it's posted at GoldMoney here: https://www.goldmoney.com/research/goldmoney-insights/europe-brexit-and-...

Spot Gold Halves Post-2014 Recovery vs. Euro Ahead of Fed, ECB, BoE Decisions as Middle East Tensions Worsen

Stranger Things 
The hidden agenda in the so-called tax reform bill is to act as stop-gap quantitative easing to plug the “liquidity” hole that is opening up as the Federal Reserve (America’s central bank) makes a few gestures to winding down its balance sheet and “normalizing” interest rates. Thus, the aim of the tax bill is to prop up capital markets, and the apprehension of this lately is what keeps stocks making daily record highs. Okay, sorry, a lot to unpack there. Primer: quantitative easing (QE) is a the

Gold Juniors’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness.  The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them.  The juniors recently reported Q3 earnings, and enjoyed strong results.

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,

As mentioned last week in Part I, the U.S. National debt is now at a record $20.5 trillion. And the first month of fiscal 2018 showed a deficit increase of nearly 38% over fiscal 2017.  The total amount of Non-Financial Debt is up nearly $15 trillion during the 2007-2017 timeframe. In addition, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported that household debt totaled $13 trillion in the third quarter ended September 30th, which is a record high and the 13th straight quarterly increase.
