Addressing Keith Weiner’s objections to “Gold’s True Fundamentals”
A 23rd June post at the TSI Blog described the model (the Gold True Fundamentals Model – GTFM) that I developed to indicate the extent to which the fundamental backdrop is bullish for gold. The GTFM is an attempt to determine a single number that incorporates the most important fundamental drivers of the gold price, where I define “fundamental driver” as something that happens in the economy or the financial markets that causes an increasing desire/urgency to own gold in some form.

Peter Schiff Warns: “They’re Not Afraid Of Collapsing The Bubble On Trump’s Watch”
Investors like Peter Schiff have been predicting the collapse of the American economy for a long time, and for good reason. If an economy is built on a foundation of borrowed money, then that economy is living on borrowed time. However, despite how fundamentally unsustainable our financial system is, it has somehow defied all expectations. It has gone on far longer than any of us could have imagined. But that could easily change under Trump. Schiff explains in a recent interview with Alex Jones

The Money-Velocity Myth
For most financial commentators an important factor that either reinforces or weakens the effect of changes in money supply on economic activity and prices is a velocity of money.It is alleged that when the velocity of money rises, all other thing being equal, the buying power of money declines (i.e., the prices of goods and services rise). The opposite occurs when velocity declines.If, for example, it was found that the quantity of money had increased by 10% in a given year, — while the price l

Myopic Metals and Miner Miasma
In recent day and weeks, I have slowly moved to the starboard side of the "Vessel of Public Opinion" where most seasoned veterans (aka "old guys") usually wind up; that is to say that I am now officially "cynical" when it comes to the world of investing. Residing in cynicism usually has a few distinct advantages with one being the uncanny ability to have your "bullsh*t meter" on at all times while one glaring disadvantage is that you miss opportunities you might have taken when you were young(er

Bond Market Paralysis: What Happens When Central Banks Own the Market? Mish’s Sure-Fire Proposal
Here’s the question of the day: What happens when central banks own the market? The answer comes from Asia where Japan’s Government Bond Market Grinds to a Halt and the yield on 10-year Japanese bonds did not move for seven days. Yields on newly issued 10-year Japanese government bonds remained flat for seven straight sessions through Friday as the Bank of Japan continued its efforts to keep long-term interest rates around zero. The 10-year JGB yield again closed at 0.055%, where it has been s

Two Italian Banks Fail: Bail-In Rules Changed to Protect ECB and Political Class from Losses?
On Friday the ECB Shut Down Venice-based Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza as failed or failing banks. The bailout cost is purportedly €5.2 billion ($5.8 billion), but costs nearly always exceed initial projections. Under the announcement, senior bondholders and depositors will be protected. The European Central Bank said Banco Popular was “failing or likely to fail” due to its dwindling cash reserves. The good assets of Banca Popolare di Vicenza and Veneto Banca will be taken on by I

Seymour Hersh: Trump's Red Line
The intelligence made clear that a Syrian Air Force SU-24 fighter bomber had used a conventional weapon to hit its target: There had been no chemical warhead. And yet it was impossible for the experts to persuade the president of this once he had made up his mind. “The president saw the photographs of poisoned little girls and said it was an Assad atrocity,” the senior adviser said. “It’s typical of human nature. You jump to the conclusion you want. Intelligence analysts do not argue with a pr

Fumbling and Bumbling
As part of our continuing investigations into the Interwar Period, we’ve been looking at a funny episode in 1937. June 18, 2017: The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937 October 2, 2017: The Interwar Period, 1914-1944 I think it has been productive to spend all this time on the 1930s. I feel like we are airing out a lot of past confusion and trauma. Of course, many people may not agree with my interpretations and conclusions. But, along the way, they might get the data and materials to come to their own

Governments will smash cryptos whenever they want, von Greyerz tells KWN
7p ET Sunday, June 18, 2017 Swiss gold fund manager Egon von Greyerz today tells King World News that governments will easily smash cryptocurrencies any time they want to and gold and silver eventually will escape price suppression by governments and central banks and begin to reflect the vast inflation of the money supply. As for when, von Greyerz doesn't say. GATA doesn't know when either, only that the World Gold Council and the gold and silver mining industry will do nothing to hasten the d

GE’s Pension Time Bomb: Shortfall $31 Billion and Rising
GE has the largest pension shortfall in the S&P 500. It’s a $31 Billion Balance Sheet Hole That Keeps Growing. At $31 billion, GE’s pension shortfall is the biggest among S&P 500 companies and 50 percent greater than any other corporation in the U.S. It’s a deficit that has swelled in recent years as Immelt spent more than $45 billion on share buybacks to win over Wall Street and pacify activists like Nelson Peltz. In the last two years, GE spent little more than $2 billion on total pension con

Is Bitcoin a Bubble Set to Burst?
The bitcoin price is up roughly 10X over the past two years, so it is understandable why some people believe it is overvalued. If you do a Google search on “Bitcoin Bubble,” you will find nearly 700,000 results. People love to proclaim that bitcoin is a bubble, especially those that missed the inflation of said bubble. But are they correct? Is it too late to get on board the bitcoin rocket? Only time will tell, but I suspect that the price of bitcoin will climb many multiples higher before reach

Gold and Silver Are “Asymmetric” Trades
MarketOracle/David Smith/06-23-17 An asymmetric trade is a situation where investing a relatively small amount of money holds the potential of yielding a profit many times the amount of the original sum at risk. In other words, where the risk to reward is skewed massively in the direction of reward. This took place recently with Bitcoin (BTC). Is this conceptually different from bets made years ago on Microsoft, Cisco, Amazon, or Facebook, which yielded hundreds of percent profit to intrepid inv

The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

The Fed Just Started Pulling the Plug on the Markets
Global equity flows might have just peaked. Bull markets are driven by new capital: you need more money from more buyers to increase buying pressure so that stock prices rise. However, it looks as though globally investors are tapped out. After months of new capital pouring into the market, global equity fund inflows slowed dramatically in the last week. And not just a little… by a LOT. Source: Sober Look This is a MAJOR warning sign to stock bulls that buying pressure is weakening in the marke

In 15 years of Cartel, PPT, and Fed “watching,” I’ve not seen anything like the manipulations since Election Day – which is quite amazing, considering the powers that be were clearly aligned with the status quo fronted by Hillary Clinton, and her band of criminal bankers, corporate CEOs, globalist politicians, and “fake news” mainstream media.  Why “they” chose to double down their manipulative efforts when the “Red Swan” fought through their historic election-rigging to win the Presidency is be
