A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

  America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
"Let me issue and control a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws." (Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty) Many prominent Americans such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson have argued and fought against the central banking polices used throughout Europe. A note issued by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve Note, is bank currency. These notes are given to the government in exchange for an interest-bearing g

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
In order to pay debts incurred from the Seven Years War with France, King George III of England sought to heavily tax the colonies in America. In 1742, the British Resumption Act required that taxes and other debts be paid in gold.

Clive Maund still can't admit that central banks diddle the gold market
Financial letter writer Clive Maund still can't bear the thought that central banks might be interfering with his technical analysis of the gold market. In his "Gold Market Update" posted at GoldSeek today -- -- Maund writes: "There has been much grumbling and muttering within the gold community about how 'The Cartel' and the Comex, etc., are holding the gold price in restraint by means of naked short-selling, hitting the market with supply when

What the Markets Have in Common with the Film 'Casablanca'
As I watched Wednesday's CPI (inflation) number reported by the Commerce Department, I was immediately reminded of that classic scene from legendary WWII flick "Casablanca," where Claude Rains, playing police Captain Renault, shuts down Humphrey Bogart's casino/nightclub with the immortal words, "I shocked—SHOCKED—to find out that gambling is going on in here!" The croupier hands him a wad of bills—"Your winnings, sir"—to which he says, "Oh thank you very much. Now everyone out of here!" Well,

When truth matters …confidence will break.
With the four page Congressional memo slated to come out today, our topic will be “confidence”. Confidence and all that goes with it stands to sustain a huge body blow! But first, we need to discuss a topic I have written about several times in the past that took a very strange turn yesterday …Harry Dent. For years he has scared (tried) hard money advocates by forecasting a collapse in gold to $700 and possibly even $250. I have written several times breaking his “Dented logic”, most recently he

Gold, Bubbles, SP 500, and Currency Wars - Gary Christenson
From John Rubino: “We’ll Look Back At This And Cringe” “Millions of people out there still bear the psychic scars of buying gold at $800/oz in 1980 or a tech stock at 1,000 times earnings in 1999 or a Miami condo for $1,000 per square foot in 2006. Today’s bubble will leave some similar marks. But where those previous bubbles were narrowly focused on a single asset class, this one is so broad-based that the hangover is likely to be epic in both scope and cumulative embarrassment.” BU

Shakespeare on Finance
We are told by Shakespeare: “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” Is it good advice?Like so many things in life, the answer is - it depends. Individuals are different, and what is right for one person may not be suitable for another. What’s more, everyone’s circumstances are different, which may require different decisions that result in a myriad of outcomes.Consider too what has happened to money in the four centuries that have passed since Shakespeare penned those immortal words.

Gritted Teeth and Clenched Fists
"Never underestimate the replacement power of stocks within a RE-flationary spiral." - Michael J. Ballanger Four weeks ago, after gold had corrected down from nearly $1,300 to around $1,240, I tweeted out that I was thinking about re-entering the JNUG (Direxion Daily Junior Gold Miners Index Bull 3X ETF) market and proceeded to launch into one of my classic invectives on why the Commercials were going to get toasted and why I should be considered the Crown Prince of non-Linear Thinking in my s

Cryptocurrency Update: Experts say Ethereum to Eclipse Bitcoin, Despite Current Scaling Issues
The bitcoin price has corrected from just over $3,000 on June 12th to $2,500 today. It is currently at a key technical support level, but has additional support around the $2,100 and $1,800 price levels. The most bullish outcome would be for the bottom leg of the converging triangle pattern to hold up as support and for the price to push upward through the downward sloping leg. These patterns usually indicate that a big move is upcoming, but do not indicate direction clearly. So, as the legs con

1.8 Million Ounces of Gold Traded in One Minute
Yesterday, there was a flash crash in the gold market. What happened and what does it mean? Monday was a very interesting day for the gold market, as the price of gold plunged almost $20 after 1.8 million ounces of the yellow metal were sold in one minute. Gold futures fell as much as 1.6 percent to $1,236.50 an ounce on the Comex at the Asian close. The drop was unexpected as no new fundamentals justified it. On the contrary, orders for U.S. durable goods fell 1.1 percent in May, the second mon

"Way Back When" is an expression that my grandmother used to use in discussing London during WWII when she and her family would congregate in the underground subway tunnels as soon as the air raid sirens began to go off.

Gold Investors Can Profit from This Key Contrarian Indicator
The price of gold has been trounced the past few weeks, and most of the bulls have left the building. The price of gold has slid $175 since election night, but this pales in comparison to the amount of bulls heading for the exits. According to the Daily Sentiment Index, bullish sentiment on gold has dropped from 49% bulls one month ago, to 6% as of Friday’s close. What’s even more significant is that sentiment has only been this pessimistic one other time in the past 30 years. This occurred betw

  There will never be a “commercial signal failure” in the gold market
Some commentators have been anticipating a “commercial signal failure” in the gold market for more than 15 years. Moreover, whenever the gold price experiences a large rally the same commentators routinely cite the potential for a commercial signal failure (CSF) as a reason to maintain a full position, the argument being that the coming CSF is bound to result in massive additional price gains. The reality, however, is that whereas a CSF is an extremely unlikely event in any commodity market, in
