The Fed Remains on Course – to Trouble
The Federal Reserve (Fed) is widely expected to continue to tighten its monetary policy this year. According to a latest Reuters Poll, the Fed is likely to start shrinking its US$4 trillion balance sheet in September and, moreover, raise further its key interest rate, which is currently standing in a range of 1.0 to 1.25 percent, in the fourth quarter this year.According to mainstream economic wisdom, the time has come for the US economy to return to a more normal level of interest rates.

The Answer To The Most Frequently Asked Question
It’s early Tuesday, and it’s hard to recall a day where complacency reigned so supremely.  The product, of course, of the historic market manipulation that exponentially “stair-stepped” on Election night – when Trump’s “BrExit times 10” dealt a mortal blow to TPTB, forever ending America’s role as a global “superpower.”  Not because Trump the person makes a whit of difference – as frankly, it would be impossible for him to be worse than Hillary (and Bill) Clinton.  But instead, as said “powers t

Morning Snapshot: Gold remains consolidative ahead of Fed decision
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/07-26-17 Gold continues to consolidate as markets await the FOMC’s latest decision on monetary policy. The policy statement comes out at 2:00ET. It is widely expected that the Fed will hold steady on policy and provide no additional clues about the timing of balance sheet normalization. Prospects for a September rate hike remains a long-shot. Economic data will be light today with just EIA crude stocks for last week and June new home sales. A rise to a 615k annual pace is ant

Gold Bullion Leaves GLD Again But 'Likely to Test' 2011 Downtrend as Dollar Falls
GOLD BULLION fell against all major currencies bar the US Dollar in London on Tuesday, losing 1% from yesterday's 3-week high in Euro terms as Western stock markets rose with major government bond yields. Ten-year US Treasury yields touched 1-week highs at 2.29% as bond prices fell ahead of tomorrow's US Federal Reserve decision on monetary policy – widely expected to leave rates and QE holdings unchanged.

Ending the Monetary Fiasco – Returning to Sound Money 
Money plays a key role in facilitating and intensifying the process of civilization. However, this holds true only for free-market money, while with government-controlled fiat money, the opposing tendency comes into operation, namely the process of decivilization.

Janet Yellen and the Coming Collapse of the US Dollar
Janet Yellen has confirmed that the ($USD) is going to collapse. I don’t mean a systemic, going to zero, collapse (though one day the $USD, like all fiat currencies will fail). I mean that the $USD is going to drop hard in the coming 18+ months. How hard? I believe we’ll see the $USD in the 80s sometime in 2018. That’s a full 11%-13% lower from where the $USD is today. Put simply, the entire move in the greenback that was driven by the Fed ending QE will be unwound. How do we know this? Janet Y

The Daily Market Report: Gold Edges Up to Notch 4-Week Highs
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/07-24-17 Gold edged higher to begin the week, establishing a 4-week high at 1258.79. With the dollar still on the defensive near 13-month lows, the yellow metal is likely to remain underpinned. The greenback is under pressure amid expectations that the Fed is not going to hike rates in September. The market is hoping to glean further evidence of this pause when the Fed announces policy on Wednesday this week. Political uncertainty is adding additional weight to the dollar. Tu

  Supply Side Economics – 42 Years Later – Paul Craig Roberts 
Supply-Side economics burst onto the economic policy scene in Washington, D.C., on September 21, 1975 in the Sunday Washington Star in an article I had written for US Representative Jack Kemp that provided a supply-side economic basis for his capital formation bill. Subsequently, I generalized the supply-side approach when I realized that changes in marginal tax rates altered relative prices and could shift the aggregate supply side curve. Until that time, economists assumed that fiscal policy o

The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner
Today, we will begin our look at The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. Sumner is a Fellow at the Independent Institute and also the Mercatus Center, where he is the “Ralph G. Hawtrey Chair of Monetary Policy at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, where he is the director of the Program on Monetary Policy.” Mercatus is a university-attached think tank with a strong conservative leaning, that embraces the Austrian tradition (Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, among others) with some enthusiasm. The regular economics department of George Mason has similar leanings, and provides a home for the gold-friendly professor Larry White. This is rather uncommon among academic economic departments.

Bitcoin Segwit Activation-The Gold Cartels Worst Nightmare
Not that its experience is any different from the countless “empires” that destroyed themselves from within; but let’s face it, America is rapidly morphing into a Banana Republic. And not just in terms of its monetary policy – as the leader, in the “race to the bottom,” of the terminal phase of history’s largest; most destructive; and for the first time, global; fiat Ponzi scheme.  Unfortunately, the symptoms of the disease are widespread, affecting the political, economic, and social landscape

Prepare for a 30-year bull market
Heading into 2017, Wall Street was excited by the prospect of a U.S. president who sympathized completely with business.His promised tax and healthcare reforms were widely cheered by investors in the wake of his election.Yet the Congress has so far failed to deliver on those promises and investors are no longer giving the Trump administration a free pass based on the assumption that tax breaks are on the way. This loss of enthusiasm is reflected in the long periods of dullness the market has exp

Gold Rises on Strong Euro
Yesterday, gold hit a three-week high. What does it mean for the precious metals market? The ECB kept its monetary policy unchanged yesterday. And Draghi said that the ECB had made no plans regarding tightening its monetary policy stance. Although he did not give any hints about the bank’s next move, the euro soared, as one can see in the chart below. The probable reason is that although Draghi was not especially hawkish, he didn’t sound too dovish either. And its means that market expectations

Trump, Quarles and Gold
Last week, Trump nominated Quarles to the Federal Reserve board. What does it mean for the gold market? The Bank of Japan kept policy unchanged yesterday, so markets were little moved. Investors await now the ECB meeting – the euro appreciated against the U.S. dollar amid the monetary policy statement. If Draghi is less hawkish than expected, the greenback will probably rebound, which could hurt gold. We will analyze the ECB’s decision in the upcoming days – today we would like to cover Trump’s

The following report was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com Though stock markets in general are meaningless and indicate nothing in terms of the health of the economy they still function as a form of hypnosis, or a kind of Pavlovian mechanism; a tool that central bankers can use to keep a population servile and salivating at the ring of a bell.

Last week, the Bank of Canada raised interest rates. What does it mean for the U.S. dollar and gold? On Wednesday, one week ago, the Bank of Canada increased its target for the overnight rate from 0.50 percent to 0.75 percent. The bank rate and the deposit rate, which create the operating band, were raised to 1 percent and 0.5 percent, correspondingly. As one can see in the chart below, it was the first hike in seven years. Still, the key policy interest rates remain at a very low level. Chart 1

Morning Snapshot: Gold extends gains on more weak inflation data, falling dollar
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/07-18-17 Gold is climbing for a third consecutive session, with the dollar remaining under broad pressure. More weak inflation data further erodes September rate hike expectations adding additional weight to the greenback. Both U.S. import and export prices fell in June, missing expectations. That drove the dollar index to pressure 11-month lows at 94.46. Recent gains in the yellow metal suggest that those that were long gold in anticipation of inflation — the so-called Trumo

Stockholm Syndrome Gold Report - Keith Weiner
Stockholm Syndrome is defined as “…a condition that causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a survival strategy during captivity.” While observers would expect kidnapping victims to fear and loathe the gang who imprison and threaten them, the reality is that some don’t. There is a loose analogy between being held hostage and being an investor in a regime of irredeemable paper currency and zero interest rates. In both cases, the victim has little hope of escape a

Gold Boosted By Weak U.S. Economic Data
KitcoNews/Jim Wyckoff/07-14-17 Gold prices have popped higher in the immediate aftermath of a downbeat U.S. retail sales report that lands on the side of the U.S. monetary policy doves, who don’t want the Federal Reserve to further raise interest rates any time soon. If the gold market can close at a technically bullish weekly high close today (Friday), such would be an early chart clue that a market bottom is in place.
