The Central Planners Lullaby
We seem to be in a lull in market moving news, or is it more the gyrations within the market that have been put to sleep?  The question offers an implication that the exchanges and human emotions “used” to be connected, which in the past, these major events would have caused market fluctuations in price. It is most famously known as market volatility. We have mentioned previously how the damages to an entire string of islands and flooded land masses seem to mean nothing to the markets, but are t

  Neck and Neck: Russian and Chinese Official Gold Reserves 
Official gold reserve updates from the Russian and Chinese central banks are probably one of the more closely watched metrics in the gold world. After the US, Germany, Italy and France, the sovereign gold holdings of China and Russia are the world’s 5th and 6th largest. And with the gold reserves ‘official figures’ of the US, Germany, Italy and France being essentially static, the only numbers worth watching are those of China and Russia. The Russian Federation’s central bank, the Bank of Russia

  One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter
One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter, is, pretty much, a gold-bashing exercise. I think it is propaganda: that is to say, not a forthright expression of an individual’s independent and informed view, but an intentional effort to mold public opinion to serve certain agendas. The tone and method is very much like The Power of Gold: the History of an Obsession, by Peter Bernstein, seventeen years earlier — so similar, indeed, that it sometimes seems that it could have come from the same

Bitcoin vs Dollars: Which One is a Fraud? Which One is a Ponzi Scheme?
Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan CEO, made quite a headline splash last week when he proclaimed “Bitcoin ‘is a Fraud“. Is Bitcoin a fraud? Or are dollars, euros, yen, and yuan a collective set of frauds? Which, if any are Ponzi schemes? Modern Finance is the Fraud In an article that I wish I had written myself, Viktor Shvets, head of Macquarie’s AsiaPac equity strategy, accurately explains “Modern Finance”, Not Bitcoin, Is The Real Fraud. Paragraphs rearranged for clarity. “Bitcoin is a sort of tulip… i

Radical Appeal for More EU Stupidity
The rise of far-right and far-left parties across Europe is directly related to calls for “more Europe”. Yet, French president Emmanuel Macron makes a Radical Appeal for a More Powerful EU. Bold Actions Macron seeks “bold” actions. He wants an EU “military intervention force”, a common budget, carbon taxes, national conventions to discuss the future of Europe, trade prosecutors to enforce countries to stick with the rules, and a Franco-German cooperation treaty, Mercy! I cannot think of a more

Another Look at Capital Flight in Italy and Spain: ECB’s Target2 Explanation is False
The ECB claims that Target2 does not represent capital flight. Evidence says the ECB is wrong, especially for Italy and Spain. I have discussed this previously, but let’s recap Target2 before taking a look at new charts. Project Syndicate writer, Hans-Werner Sinn, explains why the ECB’s asset purchases and Target2 imbalances constitute “Europe’s Secret Bailout”. Under the ECB’s QE program, which started in March 2015, eurozone members’ central banks buy private market securities for €1.74 tril

Gold Bullion Fails to Recover $1300 Even as Dollar Retreats Post-Fed, Kim + Trump Trade Insults
GOLD BULLION rallied almost $10 per ounce on Friday from yesterday's 4-week lows against the Dollar, but failed to recover what analysts called the "key pivot" of $1300 despite claims of safe-haven buying after Pyongyang threatened to test a nuclear bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The Yen rose faster versus the Dollar, erasing last week's 0.7% gain in gold for Japanese investors, as Kim Jong-un – leader of the regime in neighboring Nor

The forthcoming global crisis
The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greates

Only Political Dividing Line Left - Roots Based Politics
aheadoftheherd.com Because of the rise of Globalism in the late 20th century the U.S. and Western Europe have recently seen stirrings of nationalist awakenings. Terrorism, turmoil in the Middle East and waves of Muslim refugees have fueled the trend. Wikipedia says this about Nationalism; “a nation should govern itself, free from unwanted outside interference, and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national iden

Infectious Mosquitoes Are Popping Up In New Regions
Photo: The Aedes albopictus or Asian tiger mosquito A website which tracks all mosquito species known to transmit human diseases says that it’s got a mounting number of citations.  This means that some deadly mosquitoes may be moving into new ecological niches with greater frequency and bringing their diseases with them to new regions. ProMED mail has carried more than a dozen such reports since June, all involving mosquito species known to transmit human diseases.  Most reports have concerned t

Where does the term ‘Dollar’ originate? 
The origin of the Dollar can be traced back to Joachimsthal or ‘Saint Joachim’s Valley’ in Bohemia, where silver was discovered in 1519. The local ruler, Count of Schlick, coined the metal into large coins nicknamed Joachims thalers. The coin became the basic currency of the district and neighbouring areas also adopted and imitated theJoachimsthaler – which was abbreviated to the shorter and neaterThaler.

BullionStar quoted in Wall Street Journal article on New York Fed gold
On August 10, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article about the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) custody gold and the NY Fed’s gold vault. This vault is located under the New York Fed’s headquarters at 33 Liberty in Manhattan, New York City. The article, titled “The Fed Has 6,200 Tons of Gold in a Manhattan Basement – Or Does It?”, can be read on the subscription only WSJ site here, but is also viewable in full on both the Fox News Business and MorningStar websites, here and h

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

EU Deposit Insurance, a Bank Crisis in Italy and Greece, and the Coming Ban on Cash
Last week we investigated nonperforming EU loans and an EU proposal to freeze accounts if a run on a bank starts. Today let’s investigate the EU’s deposit insurance scheme with the likely result being a ban on cash. On July 19, with little media publicity, the EU Single Resolution Board issued a statement with this exact title: Press Release – Banking Union – Single Resolution Board collects €6.6 billion in annual contributions to the Single Resolution Fund, now reaching €17 billion in total.
