Why gold has a role in every portfolio
Some investors are averse to gold because, as Warren Buffett argues, it is an unproductive asset. Whereas equities and property can be useful and provide a return, gold “doesn’t do anything but sit there” and consequently has little inherent value, from Buffett’s point of view. The World Gold Council, however, says investment demand for gold exceeded 1,500 tonnes in 2016. As well as being the second-best year on record for inflows to gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs), sales of coins and bars als

2018 Inflation 'Concerns' See Gold Price Rally Before Fed Rate Rise
GOLD PRICES rallied $10 per ounce from yesterday's fresh 5-month lows against the Dollar in Asian trade Wednesday, only to lose half that bounce in London as traders looked to today's key US monetary policy decision from the Federal Reserve. With US inflation data due later on Wednesday, just before the US Fed's widely-expected quarter-point hike to interest rates, new data this morning put Germany's consumer-price index 1.8% higher in November

  A Guide to Buying a Safe for Your Silver and Gold 
Recently at a local social event, I met a locksmith, and we started talking shop on the topic of securing assets with locks and the what’s what in the safe world. Aftera brief but very interesting conversation, I felt inspired to do a little research about the wide world of safes. What I learned was both fun and fascinating.

“Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office begging for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump.” Donald Trump, tweet du jour Trump is a compulsively vulgar knucklehead.  FOMC announcement on rates tomorrow. 25 basis point increase is expected. There will be a stock option expiration on Friday. Have a pleasant evening.

CPM Group’s Jeff Christian Responds “NEGATIVELY” To The SRSrocco Report On Silver Investment Demand
The debate continues between the SRSrocco Report and CPM Group’s Jeff Christian on the fundamentals of the silver market.  After my article, in which I questioned the CPM Group’s exclusion of silver investment demand from their supply and demand analysis, Jeff Christian responded with a comment on my website.  I am glad that Mr. Christian responded because it now allows me the opportunity to explain in more detail why I disagree with the CPM Group’s analysis.As I have mentioned before, this has

Cryptojunkies: Beware the Ides of December
It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial traders. The weekly COT for that week showed an aggregate short position of a miniscule 2,911 contracts down from the earlier highs of over 300,000 contracts. About six weeks later, despite the earlier bottom in gold, the HUI (NYSE Ar

Bullion Star: Why Singapore is so great for gold investors
Bullion Star, headquartered in Singapore, today expounds on the city-state's great advantages for gold investors. Bullion Star writes: "Apart from the goods-and-services tax exemption on investment precious metals, there are a number of other jurisdictional advantages that have supported the growth of Singapore as a gold trading and storage hub and that reinforce the logic for buying gold and storing gold in Singapore. "In Singapore, there are no other taxes when buying gold, silver, or other

Stock Markets and Precious Metals Charts - FOMC Decision Wednesday, Stock Option Expiration Friday
"They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge." Thomas Reed (R-Maine) Bloomberg had economist Art Laffer, of the eponymous Laffer Curve, talking up the GOP 'Tax Reform' bill in all its 'trickle down' glory. I did not even know this retrograde nonsense peddler was still around, having been discredited in his economic theory of top down stimulus rebranded as 'supply side economics'. Now we know just how bad for the people this new tax legislation may be. The

Silver Prices Erase 2017 Gain as Comex Bulls Retreat Fastest Ever Before Fed Rate Hike, CBOE Bitcoin Launch
SILVER PRICES failed to follow a small bounce in gold bullion Monday morning in London, holding unchanged versus the US Dollar from New Year 2017 as gold held $100 per ounce higher from January 1st ahead of this week's long-anticipated US Federal Reserve decision on interest rates. With silver prices slipping towards last week's new 5-month lows beneath $15.70 per ounce, world stock markets rose with commodities and major government

Sharps Pixley's Williams cites Ted Butler and GATA's Ed Steer
Sharps Pixley's Lawrie Williams this week calls attention to silver market analyst Ted Butler's observation that not just JPMorganChase but also Goldman Sachs seem to be acquiring large amounts of gold and silver via the New York Commodity Exchange. Williams adds that GATA's Ed Steer notes that the recent price smashes in the monetary metals seem to result from more futures market manipulation. "If Ted and Ed are correct," Williams writes, "then it looks like JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs could be

Bill Murphy: Rocketing bitcoin highlights gold and silver suppression
The gold price was traumatized yesterday by the Gold Cartel's forceful raid, plunging right through important support at $1,270 all the way down to $1,260. While a technical breakdown was created, enough buyers showed up to take the price back up to a touch away from $1,270 through the early London trading hours. Efforts to break through that former support point were thwarted twice. Then it was pressure on a couple hours ahead of our Comex opening ... which took the price back down to $1,263.

Why Have So Many Financial Experts Have Been Wrong About Bitcoin?
The bitcoin price has rocketed roughly 1,500% higher in 2017 to around $19,000, before correcting to the current price at $15,000. The #2 cryptocurrency by market cap, Ethereum, is up more than 5,000% year to date and many of the altcoins that we track have enjoyed similar gains. Cryptocurrencies have been one of the best-performing asset classes of all time. So, why have so many astute investors and otherwise intelligent people been completely wrong about bitcoin? Why do they profess to know it

THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

End of Year Reminder: Sell ETF Losses; Buy Physical Metals—No Wash Sale Rule
We know our readers invest in precious metals in various ways. One way is through ETFs. If you are one of these investors, pay taxes to the U.S., and are holding onto any positions with a loss since the time you bought, here’s a heads-up: if you act by December 31, you can capture that loss on your taxes without losing your exposure to metals.The “wash sale” rule was designed to discourage people from selling securities at a loss simply to claim a tax benefit. Section 1091 of the U.S. Tax Code d

Gold Stocks Break, Gold to Follow
We’ve been persistently bearish on precious metals since September and that has annoyed our readers. The weak price action, negative divergences and bearish fundamentals are too much to currently overcome for the time being. The gold stocks finally cracked this week and have lost another 7%-8% in only the past seven trading sessions. Silver and Gold denominated in foreign currencies have joined the breakdown. Gold meanwhile has not broken down yet but all indications are that it will soon. The c
