  Gold And Cryptos Destroy Fiat
I’ve predicted that a long period of deflation in the Western world would end with a Fed taper, rate hikes and quantitative tightening. That’s clearly in play now, and the deregulation of America’s thousands of small banks is perhaps the most exciting event taking place on this new “inflationary frontier”. Because of these powerful monetary trends, I’ve predicted big problems ahead for Wall Street and somewhat better times for Main Street. Having said, that, I think investors would be making a

What Is The Fundamental Value of Bitcoin?

It seems that even the Bitcoin enthusiasts themselves have trouble answering this question. Bitcoin does not have any assets, cashflow, cost of production or final consumptive demand, the traditional basis of most asset valuation techniques. The market price of anything is determine

Note: Structure: Each market moved progressively more vertical before crashing. Bubble: Each market bubbled upward to an unsustainable level and collapsed.

Golden Skin In The Game
For the past few weeks I’ve suggested that a modest US dollar rally against the yen (and thus gold) was due…and now it’s here! The dollar’s right shoulder rally fits with the US senate’s decision to finally pass some corporate tax cuts. That’s modestly good news for “risk-on” investors. It’s modest because it comes at a late stage in the business cycle. Many institutional money managers are trimming US stock market holdings. They are investing the proceeds into key Asian markets where corpor

Gold Price Slips Near 'Significant Support' as World Warns Trump on Israel Embassy, Brexit Talks Stall
GOLD PRICES slipped near 1-month lows against a rising US Dollar in London trade on Tuesday, drifting back to $1273 per ounce as world stock markets followed Wall Street lower after Monday's drop. Commodities fell as major government bond prices edged longer-term interest rates higher. "Gold should encounter significant support at $1269/67 and a rebound should follow once these levels are met,"

Russia, China and BRICS: A New Gold Trading Network
One of the most notable events in Russia’s precious metals market calendar is the annual “Russian Bullion Market” conference. Formerly known as the Russian Bullion Awards, this conference, now in its 10th year, took place this year on Friday 24 November in Moscow. Among the speakers lined up, the most notable inclusion was probably Sergey Shvetsov, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s central bank, the Bank of Russia. In his speech, Shvetsov provided an update on an important development involving

A Mixed Bag of Gold - Rory Hall
Not since 2010 has gold moved to the upside as it is moving in 2017. The good news is it is being overshadowed by all the noise being made by cryptocurrencies and bitcoin in particular. Some in the gold community are upset about cryptos stealing all the headlines; not me, however. I love visiting websites and YouTube channels that have comments that read something like “ gold went up $6 today while bitcoin went up $600 – sale all your bitcoin and buy gold“. Of course this is intended as s

BRICS Gold Trade Settlement To Begin in 2018? - Rory Hall
My guess is it will take Russia and China and the other BRICS nations most of 2018 to get all the nuances worked out and the gold trade settlement contracts will not actually come to the table until 2019 or possibly even 2020. We say this in light of what happened with the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) bringing their gold settlement mechanism online back in April 2016. The SGE was supposed to bring this online in October 2015, but was unable to make it happen as they wished to avoid any m

Gold: $1400 Is The Key
The big picture for gold continues to strengthen. In 2016 gold began the year at about $1100, soared $300 an ounce to about $1400, but then it gave back about $250, and ended the year at about $1150 with only a $50 gain. That price action fit perfectly with my 2014 – 2017 theme of “rough sideways action, initially with a downside bias that develops into an upside bias”. The year 2018 should see solid Chindian demand, a reversal in US money velocity, and a peak in mine supply. That should push

BRICS countries mull forming single gold trade system
http://tass.com/economy/977276 MOSCOW -- BRICS countries are discussing the possibility of establishing a single gold trade system, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Central Bank Sergey Shvetsov said Friday. "The traditional (trade) system based in London and partially in Swiss cities is becoming less relevant, as new trade hubs are emerging, first of all in India, China and South Africa." Shvetsov said.

In 1981, a 10-year-old Vietnamese girl, her parents and nine brothers and sisters began preparing for a perilous journey, a journey they knew they might not survive. Since the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War in April 1975, life had been hard for the little girl’s family. The Communist government of North Vietnam inherited a country deeply divided, devastated by war, and on the verge of economic collapse. In an attempt to unify the country, the government instituted a centrally p

Tactics For The Gold Bull Era
Gold surged higher on Friday. Then it gave all the gains back yesterday. Looking beyond this short-term noise, gold is not an exciting market right now. What could make that change? Gold is trading in a rough sideways trend with an upside bias. This bias continues to strengthen, albeit very slowly. The technical action reflects the fundamentals and liquidity flows and clearly, patience. I jokingly refer to the SPDR fund as “Spider Man”. Chindian demand is decent, but Spider Man looks like
