  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

Bank Runs are Inevitable – How to Protect Your Assets
I haven’t thought much about bank runs in recent years. The Federal Reserve came to the rescue during the 2008 financial crisis and restored confidence in the markets. Stock valuations have soared to all-time highs, nearly quadrupling from the bottom in early 2009. Home price is many regions have doubled or tripled and investor sentiment is as bullish as can be. Market participants are essentially pricing zero of another stock market or housing market crash. It is only around the holidays, when

Should I Buy “Collectible” Silver? The 3 Criteria to Look For
Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst, GoldSilver.com.We get the same question every time we release a new proprietary GoldSilver product: why should I buy your silver round instead of a standard bullion product like an Eagle?There are several answers to that question—they can be a great way to diversify, they’re unique in the marketplace, and they might reflect values that you share.But the biggest answer of all is this: because you might make a bigger profit.That’s a bold statement, becau

Secular Disinflationary Trend Hits New Highs: Deflation on Deck? What’s That Mean for Gold?
Wage and CPI inflation, even core inflation, has surprised to the downside four consecutive months. If a recession hits, and that is just a matter of time, outright price deflation is likely. Via email, Albert Edwards of Societe Generale discusses the subject in Global Strategy Weekly. US core CPI and wage inflation have surprised on the downside for four successive months. Usually only two data points are sufficient for most of us to be able to draw a trend, but four data points surely provid

The  Unemployment Rate in Greece is down to 21.7% in April from a record 27.9% in July of 2013 and a record low of 7.3% in May of 2008. Despite the falling rate, the percentage of those unemployed seeking jobs abroad has risen from 11% in 2015 to 33% this year. The message seems to be “get me the hell out of here”.

The Looming Energy Shock
There will be an extremely painful oil supply shortfall sometime between 2018 and 2020. It will be highly disruptive to our over-leveraged global financial system, given how saddled it is with record debts and unfunded IOUs. Due to a massive reduction in capital spending in the global oil business over 2014-2016 and continuing into 2017, the world will soon find less oil coming out of the ground beginning somewhere between 2018-2020. Because oil is the lifeblood of today's economy, if there’s le

What's the Meaning Behind the Shield on the GoldSilver Products?
One thing I love about GoldSilver is that we’re big enough to create our own line of products. We have beautiful silver rounds with our own designs, priced near spot, with the potential for greater appreciation for those with limited mintage.And now we have a new silver bar coming out. Most organizations that produce their own rounds don’t have bars, but Mike wanted to add a silver bar since they’re cheaper.

My Newest “Most Likely To Catalyze The Big One”
Today’s article is one of my scariest yet; as, after watching events unfold in the world’s most notorious geopolitical hotspot in recent weeks, it’s difficult to come up, using my best Spock-like logic, with an alternative conclusion to the potentially catastrophic one I’ll discuss today.  Which, if it occurs, may catalyze not only the financial “big one” we all know is coming, but an era of political, geopolitical, economic, and monetary destabilization unlike; and potentially, unparalleled in

Gold’s Pricing Power Moving East - Part 2
China excluded from the global gold price or arbitrage includes it?China is unhappy that gold prices should be driven by U.S. and dollar concerns. But many state that because there is no free flow of gold in and out of China, China will remain a parochial market, not integrated into the global gold market. Nothing is now further from the truth.The author has worked with successful arbitrageurs in London in the past, so we can clearly see that through the London and Shanghai Gold Exchanges via bu

Precious Metals VS. Crypto-Currency And Mainstream Investments-“Revisited”
Two days after the most suicidal, hubristically arrogant policy statement in FOMC history, by an institution desperate to maintain the dead propaganda meme of “growth”; and with it, the Cartel’s “response” – gold remains less than $20/oz below its 5½ year downtrend line, and $20/oz above its 200 week moving average; whilst silver – in my view, more undervalued than at any time in history – is just a buck below its 200 week moving average, but a full $0.65/oz above its 5½ year downtrend line.  In

  WILL GOLD REACH $2.6 MILLION OR JUST $150,000
Last week, we were again reminded of the global instability and disequilibrium. In the UK, the conservative Prime Minister Theresa May decided 9 weeks ago to call an election. This was done due to the conservatives being 20 percentage points ahead of their Labour rivals in the opinion polls which would have led to a strong backing for the Brexit negotiations as well as another five years in power. But things went disastrously wrong. An extremely badly run campaign by Mrs May and an opportunistic
