  What Are The Origins Of The Terms 'Bull' And 'Bear'? 
Right now there’s much discussion about whether gold is headed for a bear market after its decade-long bull run. Time will tell, but the current debate may make you wonder how ‘bull’ and ‘bear’ entered the financial lexicon? A bull is a boisterous, charging animal that throws its victim up in the air.

What Is A “Legal Tender Law”? And, Is It A Problem?
What is a legal tender law? Over the years, there has been some discussion about “legal tender laws” in the United States. I talked to a legal expert about it, and discovered – as I suspected – that it doesn’t mean quite the same thing as many people think it does. Here is my (non-expert) explanation. The present legal

The Future Of Money, And Wealth Storage 
Don’t kid yourself.  “Paper PM investments” will be under attack for as long as financial markets function – and thus, even when physical gold and silver inevitably win their war with the purveyors of fraudulent fiat currency and “financial markets”, there’s no guarantee that anything other than the real thing will benefit. Last week’s Miles Franklin All-Star Silver Webinar; in which, it was noted that despite the heinous price suppression of the past six years (that will decidedly end, when the

Silver Price Management - Craig Hemke
If the entire world only produces 880,000,000 ounces of silver per year...and if 75% of that silver is consumed through the production of cell phones, solar panels and other items...then how do The Banks manage price off of the remaining 220,000,000 ounces? The answer: Alchemy. Look, you likely already know how The Bullion Banks alchemize gold in order to control price. After the failure of the US to manage price in the 1950s and the failure of The London Gold Pool in the 1960s, the alche

Gold eases in French election afterglow; N.Korea woes limit losses
Reuters/Swati Verma/04-25-17 Gold prices eased on Tuesday as investor sentiment remained skewed towards riskier assets in the wake of the French election results last weekend, though concerns over Korean peninsula limited the safe-haven’s losses. …”People are going on the risk-on scenario (after French election results), but gold didn’t really fall too far away,” said Yuichi Ikemizu, head of commodity trading at Standard Bank in Tokyo. “There are more people who are still worried about not only

Central Banks Are Now Printing $200 Billion Per Month... Without a Crisis
A tidal wave of inflation is rapidly moving through the financial system. Most investors only pay attention to the Federal Reserve. And they are missing the BIG PICTURE for Central Bank monetary policy. The Fed is tightening policy by hiking rates. But the rest of the world’s Central Banks are printing a combined $200 BILLION in QE every single month. Yes, $200 billion. At a time when the financial system is out of crisis and the Fed’s put its own “print” button on “pause.” This is an all-time r

Daily Market Report: Gold Remains Defensive as Risk Appetite is Stoked
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-25-17 Gold extended modestly lower, exceeding yesterday’s low at 1265.12 as risk assets continue to benefit from the French election results and the prospect of much lower U.S. corporate taxes. The weaker dollar and geopolitical risks continue to offer some support. “Between the France election and the prospects of corporate tax cuts being proposed in the next few days, it’s clearly a risk-on backdrop.” — Thierry Albert Wizman, global interest rates and currencies strategi

  Gold Bullion Erases $10 Bounce Despite French Election, N.Korea Risks, Imports to China Jump
GOLD BULLION erased all of last night's $10 rally from 2-week Dollar lows Tuesday morning in London, trading back at $1268 per ounce as world stock markets extended their gains following the first-round of France's presidential election. With pro-Euro centrist Emmanuel Macron now facing the National Front's Marine Le Pen in May 7's run-off, "The presence of the far-right in the second round is a risk for the country," said current president Fran

Morning Snapshot: Gold retests yesterday’s post French election lows
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-25-17 Gold remains defensive as markets reverse out the French election risks, and look ahead to the May 7 run-off, where centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron is expected to handily beat Marine Le Pen. Investors will be watching the polls closely in the weeks ahead to see if Le Pen can narrow the differential. Weakness in the dollar that is associated with the rebound in the euro will help to limit the downside in gold. Elevated geopolitical tensions provide an underpinning

LePen Euro Frexit Panic Over – “For Now”
by John Stepek, Editor of Money Week OK, drama’s over. The French election has turned out pretty much exactly as expected. For all that some of the papers are leading with “French revolution” headlines, the reality is that a face-off between the right-wing Marine Le Pen of the Front National and independent/socialist candidate Emmanuel Macron of En Marche! has been on the cards for months now. LePen and Gold bars (Metalor 100g). Concerns about Frexit and the end of the euro has seen strong dema

  No, The Junior Mining Stocks Are Not About To Implode - Dave Kranzler
One of my subscribers sent an article to me that had been linked on Goldseek.com. The author laid out a case based on the recent events surrounding GDXJ and JNUG that the junior mining sector would likely “implode.” I get suspicious about an article when the author repeatedly, with much bravado, makes the claim the he is laying out facts and challenges anyone to present challenges to those “facts.” Typically that style of writing belies a conspicuous absence of facts.

Sweden’s Gold Reserves: 10,000 gold bars shrouded in Official Secrecy
In early February 2017 while preparing for a presentation in Gothenburg about central bank gold, I emailed Sweden’s central bank, the Riksbank,  enquiring whether the bank physically audits Sweden’s gold and whether it provide me with a gold bar weight list of Sweden’s gold reserves (gold bar holdings). The Swedish official gold reserves are significant and amount to 125.7 tonnes, making the Swedish nation the world’s 28th largest official gold holder. Before looking at the questions put to the

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Augustine of Hippo As you most probably have heard the French elections settled on the 'base case' candidates, Le Pen and Marchon. None of the old line, established parties made the cut. Le Pen is the hard nationalist right and anti-EU. Macron appears to be a polit

Ronan Manly: Sweden conceals the status of its gold reserves
Gold researcher Ronan Manly reports today that Sweden's central bank claims to make physical inspections of its gold reserve, much of which is held outside the country, but refuses to disclose a list of its gold bars with their weights, even as the central bank acknowledges that it holds gold in part for intervening in the foreign exchange markets. Manly concludes that the bar list is being withheld because some of Sweden's gold is impaired by loans or swaps and full transparency would expose in

The Daily Market Report: Gold Pressured on Revived Risk Appetite
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-24-17 Gold remains lower on the day, as “risk-on” seems to be the order of the day following the French election results. However, the yellow metal is already more than $10 off the intraday low, buoyed by persistent geopolitical risks and a weaker dollar. The outcome of the French election was pretty much as expected, with Macron and Le Pen advancing to the May 7 run-off. Europhile centrist Macron is widely expected to be the winner of that contest, which has reignited ris
