“The West has been selling gold into a black hole. . . .”
Solving the secret behind the Chinese gold market Epoch Times/Valentin Scmid/3-13-2017 “Here, Jansen points out a peculiarity regarding Asian buying: ‘Asian demand is strong when the price goes down. Western demand is strong when the price goes up. In April 2013, the gold price collapsed and a lot of gold was exported from the West to China, mostly from the U.K.’” MK note:  The quote in the headline is from Koos Jansen, the Dutch researcher/expert on Chinese gold demand.

The Myth of Gold Confiscation
If we experience a debt crisis, as many economists believe is inevitable, many people believe that their holdings of gold and silver bullion will be confiscated, just as in 1933. This article reviews the probability of confiscation and compares it to other more likely measures to generate government solvency. An appropriate starting point when addressing concerns about gold confiscation is to define the word 'confiscation.' Merriam Webster says 'to seize or buy as if by authority' and

By comparison, the Swiss gold export was roughly equal to Sri Lanka’s entire annual GDP in 2015 and accounts for about four-fifths of all the gold that the world extracts in a year (about 2,500 tonnes).” MK note:  Remarkable.

Trump Will Be Great For Gold And Silver (If Nothing Else) - Dave Kranzler

And there’s no question that the Trump Government will need a significantly lower dollar in order to stimulate U.S. industry, assuming the latter is at all possible anymore. On the other hand, if somehow Trump manages to get Congress to pass his border control and excise tax pr

Upside Surprise For Gold And Silver In 2017 - Dave Kranzler
To date, the price of gold and silver have followed a very similar trading path that was taken by the metals in early 2016, with gold and silver bottoming in mid-December and staging a strong rally through mid-January. Technically, as our Shadow of Truth guest Craig “Turd Ferguson” Hemke points out, all of the stars were aligned for a take-down of the gold price using paper derivative gold.
