  The Myth of the Gold Supply Deficit 
Analyses based on annual supply and demand of gold appear on a daily basis, whether posted to gold web sites or in the financial media, many of them by the most respected analysts of gold mining shares. These articles typically show an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that there is a gold supply deficit. From there, the conclusion follows that a much higher gold price is required in order to bring supply and demand into balance.

Open Letter to GATA
Dear GATA and Mr. Chris Powell: I am writing this in response to your article Monetary Metals’ Weiner refuses to see anything wrong in the gold market. There is a certain irony for me to read that I refuse to see. I have spent eight years studying the mechanics of the market, building a model, developing software to run the model through several generations, and licensing nearly three terabytes of data giving ever bid and offer in both the spot and futures markets with sub-millisecond resolution

Gold Market Update
Gold continues to prepare to break out of its giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern. As we can see on its 8-year chart below, this base pattern has been developing for getting on for 5-years now, so it has major implications. Upside volume has been building for a long time, driving volume indicators higher, a sign that a breakout and new bullmarket is simply a matter of time, and not much at that now. There has been much grumbling and muttering within the gold community about how “The Cartel”

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

John Hathaway: Gold and bitcoin are attacked to defend government currencies
John Hathaway's latest market letter for Tocqueville Asset Management may get as close to a complaint of gold price suppression as anyone can while retaining some respectability in the financial industry. Hathaway writes that there have been efforts to drive down not only gold but also the cryptocurrency bitcoin because of the competition they pose to government currencies. Hathaway writes: "Unlike physical, gold is abundant in the synthetic world because physical bars are replicated almost infi

  Electronic Gold: The Deep State’s Corrupt Threat to Human Prosperity and Freedom 
There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.” Final blog entry by Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, renowned Maltese investigative reporter who specialized in exposing state corruption; posted on 16 October 2017, one day before she and her vehicle were blown to bits by a car bomb in Bidnija, MaltaIn 2011, gold pulled a “Bitcoin” before anyone even knew what Bitcoin was: its price went vertical to $1,900 per ounce.

  Motive, means and opportunity, but no crime
When a prosecutor is trying to establish guilt in a murder trial in most cases he will try to show that the accused had the motive, the means and the opportunity. However, prior to analysing motive, means and opportunity (MMO) there must first be evidence that an actual murder occurred. One of the most basic mistakes made by those who tout gold-price suppression stories is that they focus on the MMO without first establishing that a crime has taken place. The crime in this case would be causing

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

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

Silver Fundamentals Vs. The Base Metal Bubble Part ll-Silver Undervalued Against Everything Now!
Yesterday, we learned that Donald Trump Jr. was allegedly involved in secret meetings with a Russian lawyer last year, in an alleged attempt to obtain anti-Hillary information.  This, as Trump’s snot-nosed, silver spoon son-in-law, Jared Kushner – a mere 36 years old – was collaborating with Qatarian sheiks whilst Saudi Arabia “coincidentally” declared economic war on it – under the ultimate “pot calling the kettle black” insinuation that Qatar funds terrorism.  To which, I can only say, how rid

Gold and Silver Price Drop of 3 July, 2017
The price of gold dropped from $1,241 as of Friday’s close to $1,219 on the close Monday, or -1.8%. The price of silver fell from $16.58 to $16.11, or -2.9%. It is being called a gold and silver “smash” (implication being that one party or a conspiracy is doing the smashing). Our goal is to help you develop a clear understanding. The move today is no mystery. Monetary Metals makes an intensive study of the spread between the spot market—where metal is bought and sold—and the futures market. Much

40.5 Tonnes Of Paper Gold Dumped In 4 Minutes - Dave Kranzler
One/some/several “entities” decided at 9:38 a.m. June 8, 2017 that it was necessary to dump 14,315 contracts of paper gold. This is just the August contract. In total a lot more was unloaded. This represents 1.43 million ozs of gold. The Comex is only showing 900,000 ozs of “gold” as “registered,” or available for delivery in June, July and August (assuming all of that gold is actually sitting physically in the Comex vaults as reported). If we make that generous assumption, 531,000

Roberts and Kranzler: Is bitcoin standing in for gold
9:07p ET Wednesday, May 31, 2017 Former Deputy U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts and financial analyst Dave Krazler write today that bitcoin may be taking gold's place as an inflation hedge because, to protect their currencies, central banks can naked-short gold to infinity in the futures markets but not bitcoin. Their commentary is headlined "Is Bitcoin Standing in for Gold?" and it's posted at Roberts' internet site here:

Gnome Underpants Gold Model, Report 21 May, 2017
There is a often-promoted plan to grow your wealth. Here’s the background. The dollar is going to be worthless. Soon! The reason is because [their peeps in high places tell them / the Chinese / end of the petrodollar / historical fiat currencies / Rothschild Jekyll Island Master Plan Private Fed / Fed printing] will cause the dollar to collapse and gold will rocket to $50,000. In fact, it’s a miracle that the price is a mere $1,253 and it hasn’t already. It will, once people discover this One We

The Traitors Abetting The Deep State's Dirty, Dying War on Gold - Stewart Dougherty
Evidence is mounting that the Deep State (DS) is starting to lose the dirtiest financial war in history: their War on Gold. More deeply, it is a war against something the Deep State profoundly loathes: personal financial liberty. The War on Gold, which has raged for 37+ years, has generated more than $1 trillion in criminal profits for the Deep State plunderers, while costing the worldwide owners of physical gold multiple trillions of dollars. All of this is coming to an end. Due to its criminal

Macron Or Le Pen-Who’s More Bullish For Precious Metals
It’s still early Sunday morning, before the French election has been concluded.  Like the BrExit referendum and U.S. Presidential election, the powers that be are doing everything they can to rig expectations, in the hope of stealing the election for perhaps the least qualified, likeable, or competent candidate possible; and thus, prevent the “BrExit times 100” political, economic, social, and monetary ramifications that would unquestionably result from a Le Pen victory.  In a few hours we’ll kn

Global Economic Disaster, Dead Ahead!
The principal reason we hold gold and silver, is that no matter how much their paper derivatives are manipulated, the underlying physical market is governed by “Economic Mother Nature.”  This is why the Cartel’s efforts to mask the reality that history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme is collapsing will spectacularly fail; as, per what the Miles Franklin Blog has discussed throughout this horrifying spectacle of deceit, global physical demand is surging, whilst supply is plunging.

April 23rd-A Potential Turning Point For The “99”
For the first time in the 15 years I have been in the Precious Metals space, I truly believe we are witnessing the “last days of the gold Cartel.”  However, we’re not there yet – as evidenced by the fact that despite a blizzard of PiMBEEB, or “Precious Metal bullish, everything-else bearish” headlines since markets closed for the three-day holiday weekend; from Friday’s horrifying March (and downwardly revised February) retail sales reports, causing the Fed to reduce its 1Q GDP estimate to just
