Gold Price makes Small Recovery in Wake of Political/Geopolitical Uncertainty, while the Market Closely Watches Jackson Hole
GOLD PRICES edged 0.3 percent higher on Monday lunch time, after falling $15 from $1300 per ounce last Friday, as news broke that President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon had left his position at the White House. $1300 per ounce was the highest gold price since the U.S. presidential election. This latest upheaval in the Trump administration followed the resignation of several top CEOs from President Trump's Manufacturing Council, following his weak response to the Charlottesvi

The weakest boom ever
[This post is a slightly-modified excerpt from a recent TSI commentary] The US economic boom that followed the bust of 2007-2009 is still in progress. It has been longer than average, but at the same time it has been unusually weak. The weakness is even obvious in the government’s own heavily-manipulated and positively-skewed data. For example, the following chart shows that during the current boom* the year-over-year growth rate of real GDP peaked at only 3.3% and has averaged only about 2.0%.

  Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t

July ECB Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the ECB’s July meeting were released. What do they say about the ECB stance and what do they mean for the gold market? On Wednesday, the FOMC released minutes from its July meeting. Yesterday, the ECB followed and issued its own recent minutes, which are called “Account of the monetary policy meeting”. Similarly to its U.S. counterpart, the ECB minutes were considered by the markets as dovish. This is because they showed that the officials were worried about the continu

Morning Snapshot: Gold rallies to new highs for the year
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-18-17 Gold extended to the upside driven by risk aversion. Yesterday’s terror attack in Spain further sapped risk appetite that has been weighed recently by heightened geopolitical, political and economic risks. The yellow metal eked out new highs for the year above 1296.06. A convincing push above $1300 would shift focus to last summer’s peak at 1375.15. The dollar has eased as well, offering additional support for gold. The corrective uptick in the greenback over the pas

The Daily Market Report: Gold Firms as Fed and ECB Lean Dovish
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-17-17 Gold remains generally well bid after once again nearing the high for the year at 1296.06 in earlier trade. Last week’s high at 1292.05 provides an intervening barrier. The yellow metal rebounded strongly after the FOMC minutes from the July meeting revealed heightened concern over dimming inflation prospects. Former Fed insider Danielle DiMartino-Booth categorizes the minutes as “very dovish,” which further erodes the prospects for another rate hike this year. Ms. D

A Midsummer Night's Dream: Buy Precious Metals
Each year since 1987, I have always used the final two weeks of the month of August as a shopping period in a manner not unlike the “Back-to-School” kind only the wares I seek are junior precious metals stocks as opposed to school uniforms, pens, and books. It began after I had been speaking with one of the finest brokers I had ever had the opportunity to know, Edmonton’s late George Milton, whose claim to fame was being the early financier for Bre-X (Not to worry, he and the bulk of his clients

The Stock Market Bubble is So Big Even the Fed's Talking About It
The Fed confirmed yesterday that stocks are in a bubble. Lost amidst the usual Fed-speak about inflation and other items were the following nuggets. 1)   “Equities” (read: stocks) were the primary reason the Fed discussed financial stability risks. 2)   The Fed raised its assessment of financial stability from “notable” to “elevated.” 3)   The Fed discussed “stock valuations.” This is simply incredible. Remember, we're talking about the Fed here... a group of people who go above and beyond to ig

Silver Cycles and War Cycles
Why Silver Cycles and War Cycles? Because silver prices and wars are connected, and because cycles have predictive value when viewed over the long term.  Look at silver prices since the year 1900.  Yes, silver has not freely traded for a long time, but there is value in the study. Six important silver lows have been identified with green ovals.  Two other lows in 1931 and 1971 are ignored.  The six lows identified approximately match these wars: Low            Date

Gold Prices Advance towards Resistance on Weak Dollar and Cautious FOMC Minutes, Palladium Hits 16-Year High
GOLD PRICES rallied towards its resistance level this Thursday morning in London, while the US Dollar remained weak after rather dovish hints from Fed officials suggesting that the next rate hike may be further postponed, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold briefly touched $1289 per ounce before dropping back to $1286 failing to reach the resistance level of $1294 and the psychological barrier of $1300.  The metal started its rise from $1268 on Thursday after

June FOMC Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June meeting were released. What do they say about the Fed’s stance and what do they mean for the gold market? How can we summarize the recent FOMC minutes? Well, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. But the most important discussion concerned three other issues. First, several participants noted uncertainty about the future course of the

Morning Snapshot: Gold remains firm on dovish Fed
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-17-17 Gold remains well bid in the wake of yesterday’s more dovish than expected FOMC minutes, even as the dollar has recovered. Last week’s high at 1292.05 was pressured, but has capped the upside thus far. Heightened concern about the lack of inflation evident in the FOMC minutes was interpreted as being dovish. However, changes in Fed funds futures have been limited thus far. A September rate hike remains off the table, while December is still a toss-up. Initial jobles

Absurd Inflation Discussion by Fed Jackasses
Minutes of the July 25-26 FOMC Meeting show internal concern over the Fed’s inability to hit 2% inflation. I counted 89 instances of “inflation” and 79 instances of “2”. As sub-categories of 2, there were 27 instances of “2 percent” and eight instances of “below 2”. “Longer” came up 26 times. “Transitory”, a previous standout, only came up twice. “Idiosyncratic” a new buzzword courtesy of the Cleveland Fed, came up once.

The Daily Market Report: Gold Consolidates Awaiting FOMC Minutes
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-16-17 Gold is consolidating within yesterday’s range, awaiting the FOMC minutes from July’s Fed confab. Earlier tests of the downside were limited and short-lived and the yellow metal is now trading modestly higher on the day. It will be interesting to see if the level of concern about waning inflation pressures was elevated beyond that which was expressed in the July policy statement. I suspect that the minutes will do nothing to mitigate the expectation that the Fed is o

  Can a government surplus cause the economy to tank? 
According to the article linked HERE, if the US or the Australian or the UK government repaid all of its debt, the economy would tank. The article contains such a large number of factual errors and such a copious amount of nonsense that completely debunking it would take far more time than I’m prepared to spend, so in this post I’ll only deal with a few of the flaws. To begin, the article points out that US government surpluses have, in the past, often been followed by depressions or recessions,

Skeptical Bias Toward Stocks Aligns With Bullish Charts
Skepticism Common Before Multiple-Year Moves If someone told us in 1981 the S&P 500 would post a 1,367% gain over the next 18 years, it would have been very difficult to believe after seeing an all-time high in the misery index in June 1980. From miseryindex.us: “The misery index is simply the unemployment rate added to the inflation rate. It is assumed that both a higher rate of unemployment and a worsening of inflation both create economic and social costs for a country. A combination of ri
