U.S. bank derivatives books larger since rescue of Bear Stearns
At the end of January 2008, in what would turn out to be its final annual report, Bear Stearns went into some detail about its big book of derivatives. The book had a notional value of $13.4 trillion at the end of November, Bear said, up more than 50 percent from a year earlier. A two-notch downgrade in the firm's credit ratings, it added, would require it to come up with an extra $353m in collateral. This huge cluster of financial instruments -- swaps, futures, forwards, and options -- may not

Research Director at GoldCore, Mark O’Byrne talks to IG TV’s Victoria Scholar about the outlook for the gold price. In this interview, Mark O’Byrne, research director at Goldcore, says the fact that the gold price did not spike during last week’s equity sell-off was to be expected.

Bond Market Bear Creating Gold Bull
Gold is climbing as bond yields rise and the dollar falls, over speculation that China is pulling back on buying US Treasuries and Japan signals it is winding down its quantitative easing program. Meanwhile, US debt continues to grow after the Republicans under President Trump pushed a trillion dollars worth of tax cuts through the Senate, that the Congressional Budget Office thinks will add $1.7 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. The dollar, 10 year yields and golds price

Gold Price Link to US Rates Weakest Since Mid-2015 as Bond Yields Jump on Trump Tax Bill
GOLD PRICES rose against a falling US Dollar on Wednesday morning, touching 2-week highs at $1266 per ounce despite an overnight jump in longer-term US interest rates after lawmakers in Washington voted to approve President Trump's tax plan.

Digital Enslavement Is Now Assured: ACChain - Rory Hall
This is justification for what I have been saying for a year or more – blockchain chain technology and cryptocurrencies are evil and will usher in a cashless society. If some of what I am about say sounds harsh it is because we are discussing our lives – not just our financial lives, but our ability to have the life we dream about, hope for and work to obtain. As we have pointed out, especially over the past few months, the too big to jail banks, IMF, United Nations and BIS have all been e

Former Lehman Brothers Trader: Unpredictable Government Actions Make It Smart to Hold Gold
Forbes/Shannara Johnson/08-10-17 What does a hot-shot Wall Street trader see in physical gold? And why would he be adamant about holding it? …Once he started looking into precious metals versus paper money, he quickly became bullish on gold: “An ounce of gold will buy you a nice suit today, it bought you a nice suit 20 years ago, it bought you a nice suit 200 years ago… Dollars have depreciated over time; pretty much any fiat currency has. So when I look at gold, I don’t look at it like, it’s go

The Daily Market Report: Gold Gives Back Overseas Gains, But Worries Abound
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-08-17 Gold gave back overseas gains after the dollar rebounded on news of record jobs openings in June. The dollar index slightly exceeded Friday’s post-NFP high, before dipping back into the range. JOLTS jobs openings surged to a record high 6.163 million in June and based on the reactions of stocks and the dollar, that number was initially interpreted as being a positive. In reality, the inability of companies to find suitable employees for so many jobs is suggestive of

Immutability And Timelessness, In The Dawning Of The Fintech Age
2,500 years ago, the Greek philosopher Heraclitus wisely espoused, “the only thing that is constant is change.”  Which, in the world of investing, could not be truer – particularly today, as the pace of technological innovation accelerates at an unprecedented pace.  The problem is, that while technology is generally speaking a good thing, not all technology is utilized for favorable purposes; in many cases, in stark contrast to the best interest of the world’s “99%.”  To that end, the foundation

The End of Markets, Part III - Jeff Nielson
We no longer have markets, not in the sense of international exchanges for human commerce. What we have, instead, is a 24/7 computerized price-rigging operation – which has hijacked all of our market infrastructure. The entity responsible for this enormous systemic crime is very familiar to regular readers: the One Bank . Part II of this series ended with a pledge to provide readers with evidence. Not evidence of (mere) manipulation. Such evidence exists in abundance, and a considerable amoun
