New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle: Part 2 – Pool vs Gold for Oil
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. The series focuses on collusive discussions and meetings that took place between the world’s most powerful central bankers in late 1979 and 1980 in an attempt to launch a central bank Gold Pool cartel to manipulate and control the free market price of gold. The meetings centered around the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland. Part 2 takes up where Part 1 left off, and begins by looking at developments in the BIS Gold Pool discussion

  Who paid for the Civil War ? 
When war broke out in 1861, the federal government was without its own money machine, though that would soon change. As expenses from the war mounted, the U.S. government once again issued Treasury Notes to help finance it. The Act of July 17, 1861 authorized Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase to issue notes at 7.

17 Reasons To Avoid Gold (Sarcasm Alert!) - Gary Christenson
Central bankers are managing paper currencies for the benefit of the people, not the financial and political elite. Consequently consumer prices are stable and there is no reason to own gold as protection from currency devaluations. Time Magazine confirmed that Greenspan, Rubin and Summers saved the world in 1998. Bernanke did it again after the last crisis. In 2012 he was called “The Hero” by The Atlantic. Our economic world is now stable and secure and central bankers will not need to “s

Ticking, (Short-Fuse) Time Bombs For The “Challenging” Central Banking Industry
In yesterday’s “who’s more bullish for Precious Metals – Macron or Le Pen?,” I started with nearly five pages of cold, hard facts – proving across-the-board market manipulation of essentially all Western markets.  Which, for the sole purpose of prolonging a terminally ill monetary status quo – in which 1% benefit, at the expense of not just the “99%,” but future generations of “99-percenters” – has created “dotcom-like valuations in a Great Depression Era.”  Not to mention, sentiment – per yeste

We're Back to Late 2007... or early 2000 (Remember How Those Ended?)
The market is rising… or is it? The number of individual S&P 500 companies above their 200-day moving averages (200-DMA) has rolled over. Put simply, the broader market is NOT confirming this move in stocks. So overall the momentum is leaving the market... but still the stock market index is going higher... Why is this? Because the market is being propped up by just a handful of Tech Companies. Those companies are: Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Alphabet. These are the single most popular compan

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.

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

Sweden’s Gold Reserves: 10,000 gold bars shrouded in Official Secrecy
In early February 2017 while preparing for a presentation in Gothenburg about central bank gold, I emailed Sweden’s central bank, the Riksbank,  enquiring whether the bank physically audits Sweden’s gold and whether it provide me with a gold bar weight list of Sweden’s gold reserves (gold bar holdings). The Swedish official gold reserves are significant and amount to 125.7 tonnes, making the Swedish nation the world’s 28th largest official gold holder. Before looking at the questions put to the

If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part V-Rigging Versus Reality
It’s early Monday, and let’s start by clearing our heads of the ramifications of yesterday’s first round of the French Presidential election process – in which, as expected, 39-year Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild Bank investment banker whose only political experience was miserably failing as “Economy Minister” under outgoing President Francois Hollande (whose approval rating was so low – principally because the French economy has collapsed – he didn’t run for re-election); running under a

  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

Where There’s Smoke...
Many questions surround the elevated financial asset prices we are faced with today. I'm talking not just about the sky-high prices of stocks and bonds, but also of the trillions of dollars’ worth of derivatives that are linked to them.  All are intricately linked together. For instance, stocks are elevated, in part, because bond yields are so low.  Here are several of the nature questions most investors are asking: Question #1: When will financial assets ever ‘correct’ and fall in price?

I have a LOT to say this morning – all if it, extremely important.  But first, let’s start, mere hours before the third Miles Franklin Silver All-Star Panel Webinar – which will be posted at milesfranklin.com later today; with this article from one of our distinguished panelists, Steve St. Angelo of the SRS Rocco Report.  In which, it details how Peruvian gold and silver production, in the year’s first two months, are down, unexpectedly, by 11% and 12%, respectively, from a year ago.  Which is q

Last Days of The Gold Cartel
It’s early Saturday morning, so don’t be surprised if by the time you read this, the world has significantly changed.  As frankly, a war involving the U.S., North Korea, and potentially many others may well be imminent; so much so, that China “nearly started World War III” last night, by “accidentally” reporting North Korea had launched a nuclear missile. Yes, just five months after his inauguration, Donald Trump is on the verge of starting his second war with a nation posing no threat to Americ

Dubai exchange may launch gold contract for retail investors
The Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange said today it was considering whether to launch a new spot gold contract designed to be used by retail investors and traders. The DGCX signed a memorandum of understanding with the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, a body that facilitates commodity trade flows through Dubai, and National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah (Rakbank) to develop bullion products such as the proposed retail spot gold contract. The contract could be smaller in size than the existing DGCX Spo

What sets the Gold Price – Is it the Paper Market or Physical Market?
The following article is arranged in Question and Answer (Q & A) format. Through the Q & A approach, this article raises some important issues about price discovery in the gold markets and aims to explain the view that the gold price is being set by the paper gold markets. BullionStar’s CEO Torgny Persson and precious metals analyst Ronan Manly are of the opinion that due to the structure of contemporary gold markets, it is primarily trading activity in the paper gold markets which sets the inte

The Targeted Lifetime of the US Dollar is 35 Years - Nico Simons
Why does the Fed aim for 2 percent inflation over time? The Federal Reserve System (Fed) judges that inflation at the rate of 2 percent (as measured by the annual change in the price index for personal consumption expenditures (PCE) is most consistent over the longest run with the Fed’s mandate for price stability and maximum employment. But what does this targeted 2 percent inflation mean for the lifetime of the US dollar? Statistically, the targeted 2 percent inflation works out as fol

Today, we’re going to start in Europe – where the world’s second largest; and soon-to-be-defunct; currency is again plunging, as the equivalent of political and economic “nuclear bombs” are serially crashing.  In other words, the dollar – i.e., the meaningless “dollar index”; which matters not a whit to European gold investors, who are patting themselves on the back for having had the foresight to have invest in history’s best inflation hedge.  Thehe price of gold in Euros is just 16% from its a
