Gold’s True Fundamentals
To paraphrase Jim Grant, gold’s perceived value in US$ terms is the reciprocal of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. Consequently, what I refer to as gold’s true fundamentals are measures of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. I’ve been covering these fundamental drivers of the gold price in TSI commentaries for almost 17 years. It doesn’t seem that long, but time flies when you’re having fun. No

The Gold Standard
According to Mises, money’s function as a medium of exchange is thus the central one, while its store of value and unit of account functions are merely subordinate functions. I would say store of value and unit of account is what makes the medium of exchange marketable. The medium of exchange has to be simple to understand, not only by educated people but also the most uneducated. It has to be easily accessed, not only in ideal circumstances but also in difficult ones. Many things have been trie

Americans Dying an Average of $61,500 in Debt
According to a recent study, the average total household debt in America is just over $132,500, broken down as per the chart below… … and thanks to the Fed’s recent and ongoing rate increases, the repayment of said debt will become increasingly more difficult. So difficult, in fact, that most Americans will be saddled with a sizable chunk of it at the time of their death. Actually, most already are. According to December 2016 data from credit bureau Experian provided to credit.com, 73% of Ameri

The Daily Market Report: Gold Firms Modestly
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-22-17 Gold is modestly higher, having stabilized above the 1241.30/1235.82 support zone (trendline/200-day moving average). Some additional upside follow-through above the 1261.78 retracement level would be encouraging and help confirm that the pattern of higher-highs and higher-lows that has been evident so far this year, is still intact. The Senate rolled out their secret healthcare reform legislation this morning. The accompanying headlines immediately indicated it did

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

Anti-Gold Propaganda Flares Up - Dave Kranzler
Predictably, after the gold price has been pushed down in the paper market by the western Central Banks – primarily the Federal Reserve – negative propaganda to outright fake news proliferates. The latest smear-job comes from London-based Capital Economics by way of Kitco.com. Some “analyst” – Simona Gambarini – with the job title, “commodity economist,” reports that “gold’s luck has run out” with the 25 basis point nudge in rates by the Fed. She further explains that her predicted two

How to Profit from Irrational Low-Inflation Exuberance
Everyday Definition of Inflation:  “Stuff costs more.” U.S. Government Definition of Inflation:  “After extensive statistical analysis and data manipulation … yada yada yada.” Shadowstats publishes their version of consumer price inflation.  The Chapwood Index is another version.  Both indicate real inflation rates in the U.S. are MUCH HIGHER than the official government statistics.

One striking chart suggests the Fed is making a big mistake
BusinessInsider/Pedro Nicolaci da Costa/06-22-17 The Federal Reserve keeps telling the bond market it wants interest rates to move higher, but traders aren’t listening. That suggests investors don’t believe the Fed’s justification for interest rate increases, which are predicated not only on recent economic improvement but also on a continued bright outlook. One startling chart from Societe Generale’s Albert Edwards illustrates the Fed’s dilemma. Two-year notes are historically the maturity that

Gold Confiscation in the U.S. - Rory Hall
GATA reported yesterday, and we picked up the story, about a golden rooster being confiscated by the Treasury in 1960. The rooster weighed in at a hefty 14 pounds of solid gold – that’s a lot of gold. The rooster was commissioned by a Las Vegas casino that would later become the Golden Nugget. The casino acquired the name after they had acquired one of the largest gold nuggets ever dug out of the ground. The current gold nugget is on display, named “Hand of Faith”, can be seen daily as it

Are Central Banks Getting Ready to Crash the System Again?
While investors pile into Tech Stocks based on endless promotion from the financial media, the US economy is rolling over. Last week the NY Fed downgraded its economic forecast for 2Q17 to just 1.9%. Even worse, it is now forecasting 2017 total growth to be a measly 1.5%. Yes, 1.5%. There is a clear trend to this chart… and it’s NOT up. Source: NY Fed Wait, it gets worse. The Citi Surprise Index has collapsed to levels not seen since 2011. Source: Yardeni Research Why does this level matter? T

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

May Retail Sales, CPI, Other Data and Gold
Last week, a few important U.S. economic reports were released. What do they imply for the gold market? The recent days were eventful. The Fed hiked interest rates, the U.S. Treasury unveiled its deregulation plan, and several important pieces of economic news were published. First of all, retail sales fell 0.3 percent in May following a 0.4 percent rise in April. The number was below expectations. Actually, it marked the worst decline since January 2016. However, the drop was mainly caused by a

The Daily Market Report: Gold Eying Support Just Below the Market
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-21-17 Gold has turned more consolidative, having perhaps found support ahead of trendlines and the 200-day moving average. After closing lower in 8 out of the last 10 sessions, the yellow metal was arguably oversold on a short-term basis and is due for a bounce. Despite continued firmness in the stock market and assurances from the Fed that all is well, there remains an underlying air of uncertainty that is helping to underpin the yellow metal with some safe-haven interest

The End of Markets, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Readers in the Alternative Media may have noticed a distinct drop-off in the number of articles that are published on “the gold market” or “the silver market”. This is true even with respect to precious metals commentators. There is a very good reason for this. We no longer have markets. To prove this assertion, as always, the place to start is definition of terms. What is a market? There are a number of ingredients in any definition. However, first and foremost, a market is a forum for human

Morning Snapshot: Gold maintains defensive tone
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-21-17 Gold is maintaining a generally defensive tone, edging once again to 5-week lows on weak momentum. A firm dollar and stocks are weighing on the yellow metal, while a myriad of economic, political and geopolitical risks provide underpinning to the market. I’m watching support marked by the 200-day moving average at 1236.12. With recent FedSpeak echoing the hawkish tone of last week’s policy statement, traders are still unwinding some of their short dollar exposure. Th
