"Sir, I would say, "Old World Order" to return. To understand/explain better: A very easy way to view this "order", would be to simply say that the American Experience is reaching the end! As we know, world war two left Europe and the world economy destroyed. Many thinkers of that period thought that the world was about to enter a decades long depression as it worked to rebuild real assets lost in the conflict. It was this war that so impacted the idea of looking positively toward the fu

Copernicus, Galileo and Gold. Part I 
We are deceived when we consent to think about the “price of gold”. At the very outset of our thoughts regarding gold, we are wrong, just as astronomers prior to Copernicus were wrong in thinking about the solar system as geo-centric, with the Sun, Moon and planets describing perfect circles around Earth. Gold is - to follow the astronomical simile - the center of the monetary universe, and the planets - the currencies - circle the Sun, which represents gold. The correct starting point is

  Gold Silver Confiscation: Can the Government Seize Assets
One concern of retail precious metals investors is the possibility of a gold confiscation.Imagine having the forethought to buy gold to shield your finances from an economic or monetary crisis—only to have it taken away from you by your government. You’d lose not just the protective buffer you put in place but potentially a chunk of your net worth.Gold confiscation may sound preposterous to investors used to securities or real estate. But it’s happened in the past enough times to make it a reaso

  Misconceptions about Gold 
Few markets are as widely misunderstood and subject to so many misconceptions as gold. Many of those misconceptions stem from gold's dual role as a commodity and money. This post will attempt to clear up some of those misconception with a few facts. Let's start with one key fact. Gold is Money Gold is Money

Gold and Silver Loco Swaps
Loco swaps are a way to move gold or silver to another location without physically shipping it. It is a transaction where two parties agree to exchange (swap) gold they have in different locations (locos) with each other. As discussed in Loco, gold trades at different prices in different locations. This means that the loco discount or premium needs to be transferred between the swap parties in addition to the metal itself. The Perth Mint records loco swap trades as linked buy and sell trades.

  The Silver:Gold Ratio, 1687-2011 
We have something special this week: the open market value of silver, compared to gold, over a period of over three centuries. The location is London. For a long time, silver and gold were, in a sense, two versions of the same thing, just like one dollar bills and twenty dollar bills are today. Their ratio of value was not perfectly stable, like the 20:1 ratio of $1 bills and $20 bills, but it was quite stable between about 16:1 and 15:1. Both silver and gold ser

Economic Nationalism
I thought that I would chew over the idea of “economic nationalism” for a bit, to see if we could find something useful in it. The neo-liberal free trade/no borders consensus is a little too easily promoted by many today, apparently without much thought. I am generally in the neo-liberal camp, but I wanted to think about it. For some reason, “nationalism” is a naughty word these days, but all that it means is that one feels an allegiance to one’s “nation.” The main reason for the badmouthing of

Bank Stocks Lead Gold Stocks Higher
As the world transitions from deflation to inflation, investors need to engage in serious sector rotation or they risk being left behind. Income growth in China/India, US government tax cuts, central bank rate hikes, and quantitative tightening are the main fundamental forces of this transition. The paint is barely dry on Trump’s first tranche of tax cuts, and he’s already talking about round two! Trump is a businessman and a realist, and that means he knows the US government has no hope of

The Amazing Amount of Gold The U.S. Exported Since 2000
The U.S. exported a stunning amount of gold since the turn of the century.  As the price of gold surged along with the massive increase in U.S. debt, gold exports jumped to record highs.  In 2012 alone, the United States exported nearly 700 metric tons of gold.  The total amount of U.S. net gold exports over the past 17 years equaled the combined gold reserves of six high ranking countries.While the U.S. exported nearly 8,000 metric tons (mt) of gold since 2001, it also imported a great deal as

Trade Wars
An overt trade war has commenced. President Trump has fired the starting gun, setting in motion an election promise, part of his Make America Great Again undertaking. It is a blow squarely aimed against China, costing China some trade perhaps, but basically a loser’s last roll of the dice.The back story appears to be far deeper than some relatively minor tariffs on steel and aluminium would suggest. It comes after a prolonged period of shadow-boxing between America in the blue corner and Russia

JPMorgan’s Motivation
To be sure, there are many who reject, out of hand, my allegation that JPMorgan has accumulated a massive amount of physical silver over the past seven years, amounting to 700 million ounces or more. That’s completely understandable, since I can’t document and point out all 700 million oz and few have taken the time to review the basis of my claim. It doesn’t matter that I first picked up on JPMorgan’s quest to acquire physical silver four years ago, by which time it had already accumulated 300

Gold Prices Steady from Powell's Fed Rate Forecast, Platinum Up 6 for 2018 Despite 'Death Knell for Diesel'

Gold Bullion Hits Worst 1-Week Dollar Price Drop of 2018, Turkey-US Tensions Worsen in Syria
GOLD PRICES in the global wholesale center of London headed for the steepest 1-week drop of 2018 so far on Friday, holding a 1.7% loss against a stronger US Dollar as major government bond prices edged higher again from this month's sharp sell-off, nudging interest rates down. Failing to set a 4-year weekly closing high last Friday above $1354, gold prices today held around $1329 per ounce as the US Dollar retained most of this week's rally on t
