Common commodity misconceptions 
Commodities are the most basic economic goods, providing essential inputs into progressively more complex goods at advanced stages of production. Yet the economic mainstream generally fails to understand commodities, treating them as distinct from the processes whereby they are created and the processes they subsequently enable, when in fact they are an integral part of a dynamic, complex, adaptive economic system. A correct understanding of commodities is essential if we are to understand what

Update on Q4 Pivot View for Stocks and Gold
By Gary TanashianReference a post from August 11: Potential Pivots Upcoming for Stocks and GoldStock Market StatusIn the above-linked article we noted several legs that could be kicked out from under the S&P 500’s table in Q4 2017. The stock market blew right through one of them, which was a bearish (on average) seasonal trend for the 2nd half of September. No one indicator is a be all, end all. In sum, they define probabilities. But price is the ultimate arbiter and as of today, price says ‘sti

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Preview
With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results.  No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason.  Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing their operations’ underlying fundamental realities.  Q3’17’s upcoming results are likely to prove quite bullish for this neglected sector. Four times a year publicly-traded

FOMC Minutes from September 2017 Meeting and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s September 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? As earlier this year, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. The U.S. central bankers also noted that the economic impact of recent hurricanes would only be short-lived. But the mos

The Best Predictor of Future Inflation is Flashing "WARNING!"
The Fed is dramatically understating real inflation. As you know, I’ve been very critical of the Fed’s inflation measures for years. The official inflation measure (Consumer Price Index or CPI) does a horrible job of measuring the actual cost of living for Americans. I have long stated that this is intentional as the purpose of CPI is to hide the true rate of inflation so the Fed can paper over the decline in living standards that has plagued the US for the last few decades. The Fed isn’t doing

Gold's Technical Line Of Concern
The traditional post jobs report rally for gold is in full swing. This is the daily gold chart. Gold arrived at a key Fibonacci line at about $1268 as the US jobs report was released. The dollar has stalled against the yen, and that’s also good news for gold. Gold tends to stage great rallies in the days following the jobs report, and this rally is a particularly interesting one. Here’s why: First, Trump has ratcheted up his “hawk talk” in regards to North Korea and Iran. He’s scheduled to

Updating gold’s true fundamentals
Last week I posted a short piece titled “A silver price-suppression theory gets debunked“, the main purpose of which was to direct readers to a Keith Weiner article disproving that the silver price had been dominated by the “naked” short-selling of futures. My brief post rattled the cage of GATA’s Chris Powell, who made an attempt at a rebuttal early this week and in doing so proved that 1) he doesn’t understand what arbitrage is and how it affects prices, and 2) he doesn’t understand what funda

Stocks Up and Yields Down, Gold and Silver Report 8 Oct 2017
Many gold bugs make an implicit assumption. Gold is good, therefore it will go up. This is tempting but wrong (ignoring that gold does not go anywhere, it’s the dollar that goes down). One error is in thinking that now you have discovered a truth, everyone else will see it quickly. And there is a subtler error. The error is to think good things must go up. Sometimes they do, but why? First, we think it’s a cop-out to say, “well it’s all subjective.” If it were all subjective, then there would be

Gold Bars +2.6 for Week So Far as US Fed Dents Dollar, T-Bond Correlation Grows Ever-Stronger
GOLD BARS traded in London's wholesale market rose sharply early Thursday as the Dollar fell on the currency market following 'dovish' comments in the US Federal Reserve's latest policy-meeting notes.

  Betrayal!
Let me apologize in advance for what may be an upsetting piece of writing for some of you. If you're in a state of shock or exhaustion from recent events, perhaps you should skip this one. I don't offer this analysis in order to further distress anyone -- but until you understand what is happening and how that influences your psychological state, you'll remain the emotional equivalent of a rag doll shaken to-and-fro by events. Such understanding may not bring you to a place of calm acceptance. B

Gold in Q3 2017
The third quarter of 2017 was positive for the gold market. The yellow metal has gained more than 3 percent between July and the end of September. As one can see in the chart below, the price of gold jumped above $1,300 for a while and even approached the 2016 highs. Chart 1: Gold prices (London P.M. Fix) from January to September 2017. What were the reasons behind that impressive upward move? The popular story says that worries about North Korea triggered a rally in gold prices. However, as

Gold Readying to Rally
Gold suffered a sharp pullback this past month, spawning bearish sentiment.  Futures speculators fled on surging Fed-rate-hike odds and new stock-market record highs.  That pounded gold lower despite strong investment demand.  This healthy sentiment-rebalancing retreat has left gold ready to rally again.  Both its technicals and seasonals are very bullish, and futures speculators’ selling overhang has considerably abated. On September 7th, gold powered 1.1% hig

Gold Price Sinks, Platinum -11 in 4 Weeks as Stocks Up, Vix Down to Record, US Fed 'Pencils In' Rate Hike
GOLD PRICES sank to 8-week lows against a rising Dollar on Friday as yesterday's fresh all-time highs in global equities were followed by US data showing joblessness in the world's largest economy falling to a fresh 16-year low. "I have penciled in a third rate hike in December," said Federal Reserve voting member Patrick Harker to CNBC on Thursday, "[although] we have to see how the inflation dynamics play out."

The upcoming increase in interest rates
Last week, both Janet Yellen of the Fed and Mark Carney of the Bank of England prepared financial markets for interest rate increases. The working assumption should be that this was coordinated, and that both the ECB and the Bank of Japan must be considering similar moves.Central banks coordinate their monetary policies as much as possible, which is why we can take the view we are about to embark on a new policy phase of higher interest rates. The intention of this new phase must be to normalise

Catalan Independence: Why The Collective Hates It When People Walk Away
This report was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.com I have written many times in the past about the singular conflict at the core of most human crises and disasters, a conflict that sabotages human endeavor and retards critical thought. This conflict not only stems from social interaction, it also exists within the psyche of the average individual. It is an inherent contradiction of the human experience that at times can fuel great accomplishment, but usually leads to great
