Banker Gold Price Suppression Currency Manipulations Have Persisted for 50 years
This 1967 meeting of the FOMC nearly 46 years ago is clear and indisputable evidence of gold price suppression and currency manipulation of the world's "free" and "open" market exchanges.  This criminal cabal has certainly built up their mechanisms since this time to conceal their sinister scheme from issuing dishonest money. It's blatant now and all of "in your face" is their behavioral response to inquiry. Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. If you find this too cumbersome to read, the Fed

A Roman lesson on inflation
“While it is the duty of the citizen to support the state, it is not the duty of the state to support the citizen” – President Grover ClevelandThe point President Cleveland made back in the 1880s was that individuals and vested interests had no rights to preferential treatment by a government elected to represent all. For if preference is given, it is always at the expense of others.Those days are long gone, and the last president to take this stance was Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s. He was foll

Did The Office Of Management And Budget Just Throw In The Towel
At some point you really have to begin to wonder if the U.S. government has simply given up on the idea of even pretending to have any sort of fiscal plan. It’s almost as if they’ve stopped trying to even bother to maintain the appearance of solvency, and are just wondering how long it will take before the market notices and ends the charade. A quick review is that the publicly stated debt is now over $20 trillion, with unfunded liabilities like Social Security and Medicare raising the real tota

Why Recent Lows Are Crucial for Greenback
Since Friday, the USD Index extends increases and makes up for lost points. Looking at the daily chart you can even conclude that the bulls use every opportunity to push away their opponents from the recent lows. Why are they so important to them? We took a closer look at the situation and we already know the Achilles’ heel of the bulls. Do you also want to know it? We invite you to read today's alert. Focus on the USD Index Before we analyze the recent changes in our currency pairs, we decided

Stocks Plunge on News of Nell's Death
Stocks dove late in Wednesday’s session on news that the minutes from the January FOMC meeting were more than a little hawkish. From where we were sitting, the selloff looked like a brazen shakedown. It amounted to a 475-point reversal in the Dow, but that’s the kind of plunge that Wall Street’s thimble-riggers engineer whenever they are hungry for shares at bargain prices. For their part, the Fed governors seem convinced that U.S. economic growth is strong enough to handle who-knows-how-many mo

Gold Bullion Steadies from Fed Minutes Fall, Banks Tip Commodities vs. Inflation
GOLD BULLION rallied just $3 off a 1-week low versus the rebounding Dollar on Thursday as world stock markets fell after notes from the Federal Reserve showed the US central bank expects to keep raising its key interest rate in 2018. China's stock market opened sharply higher on the first trading day of the new Year of the Dog, but Hong Kong fell hard with the rest of Asia. Shanghai's gold marke

Gold Bulls, Brace Yourselves – Fed Hikes Are Coming!
Are they? As usual, the FOMC minutes provoked diverse interpretations, both dovish and hawkish. Let’s analyze them, separating the wheat from the chaff. What do the recent minutes really mean for the gold market? Hawks Attack Bullion We have long warned investors about the hawkish treat. For example, as early as in the October edition of the Market Overview, we wrote that the Fed under Powell could be more hawkish than under Yellen. In December, after Powell’s nomination, we elaborated on our st

What Happens to Gold and Silver When the Stock Market Crashes
Many investors hold gold and silver to hedge against various crises. But does this hedge hold up during stock market crashes?It’s a common assumption that gold and silver prices will fall right along with the market. And if that’s the case, wouldn’t it be better to wait to buy them until after the dust settles?Before formulating a strategy, let’s first look at price data from past stock market crashes…The Message from HistoryI looked at past stock market crashes and meas

Is Money Creation Fueling the Stock Market Surge
Is it true that changes in money supply are an important driving force behind changes in the stock price indexes?Intuitively it makes sense to argue that an increase in the growth rate of money supply should strengthen the growth rate in stock prices.Conversely, a fall in the growth rate of money supply should slow down the growth momentum of stock prices. Some economists who follow the footsteps of the post-Keynesian (PK) school of economics have questioned the importance of money in driving st

Gold's Golden Week
I’ve noted that when China’s markets go quiet during the “Golden Week” holiday, the gold price tends to soften. This is the key gold chart. Price softness is expected during this holiday, and the good news is that it is occurring on very light volume. The bears would argue there’s a small double top in play, while the bulls have an inverse head and shoulders bottom pattern on their team. A bull flag pattern may also have formed. I’ve told investors to expect a substantial battle between the

Semi Bearish
Over the last several years, beginning in 2013 I’ve made post titles like ‘Semi Bullish‘ in response to the bullish leading edge economic cycle indicator, the Semiconductor Equipment sector and its implications for broad stocks and the economy. Those implications of economic acceleration were along these lines… Semi Equipment Book-to-Bill (b2b) → Broad Semi → Manufacturing → Employment → Firm Economy. Shortly after the b2b was noted as bullish the SOX index and the S&P 500 broke out to new highs

Gold Up 3.8 In Week – If Closes Above $1,360/oz Will Be Biggest Weekly Gain In Nearly 2 Years
Gold rose as the dollar fell to near a three-year low against a basket of currencies on Friday, heading for its biggest weekly loss in nine months, as a slew of bearish factors including firming inflation and a fall in retail sales and industrial production hit the dollar. Gold in USD – 10 Years – (GoldCore) U.S. producer prices accelerated in January, boosted by strong rises in the cost of gasoline and healthcare, offering more evidence that inflation pressures are building.

Strange Link between Inflation and Gold
It was a strange day. Inflation surged yesterday. But gold dropped initially, only to quickly reverse the fall and fly into the air. What happened? And – importantly – will gold soar on the inflation fuel? Inflation Rears Its Ugly Head (or Tries to, at Least) The recent payrolls report showed that wages had jumped 2.9 percent in January on an annual basis. It was the best result since 2009, which awakened fears of inflation. That’s why investors awaited yesterday’s data on consumer prices. On Tu

Bitcoin Was Only The Beginning…
Upset that you missed the boat on the bitcoin craze last year? Millionaires were minted overnight as bitcoin returned 1,700 percent in 2017, only to see prices crash by more than half since December.

While we may be past the peak temporarily, the cryptocurrency trend is just getting started, and investor enthusiasm is still growing by the day.

The Right Question…
Last week I mentioned that my grandson Josh (Andy’s boy) was accepted at McGill University in Montreal, the University of Indiana’s business school and the University of Michigan.  He is interested in pursuing a degree in business and is taking all the requisite (advanced) classes in economics. He called me yesterday and asked me, “Which Fed Policy would be better, Quantitative Easing or Tapering and what can be done to make things better?”  Geese Louise!  When I was his age the only question I
