Refinery and Product Accreditation
To trade efficiently, market participants need to agree on standards for the products they deal in. In addition to agreeing where the product they will trade will be located (eg COMEX gold must be in a warehouse in New York) and in what form (eg COMEX bars must weigh 100oz), market participants need to agree on which manufacturers they will accept product from. This is the purpose of accreditation. In the precious metals markets it is the refiners that are accredited, as refiners are the first p

The Metal of Hope 
In history gold alone has been the money of Kings. However, throughout most of recorded time there has been a metal far more important to the average man than gold. In the ancient of days it was silver alone that could provide the means for a slave to save and eventually purchase his freedom which is why silver became referred to as the Metal of Hope.

How much do you know about gold investing

No longer a sole preserve of the elite, every day and mum and dad investors have also taken a shine to the glittering yellow metal. Accessibility to gold through bullion bars and legal tender coins, certificates and exchange traded products makes buying and storing gold simple. Driving folk to take advantage is this

  The London Gold Market: What’s behind the smoke and mirrors 
In our last two major research pieces we have been looking at the working parts of the gold market and where the heart of it lies. We’re trying to help investors understand where gold prices are really set. Today we take a look at the London gold market, an older and arguably larger market than COMEX. A couple of weeks ago we explained how we had ‘found that the COMEX was still the beating heart of the gold market.’ Since this research piece, Bron Sucheki, whose work featured in our last piece,

The power of gold and rebalancing in a portfolio
The Permanent Portfolio is an investment strategy developed by Harry Browne in the 1970s that advocates splitting your money equally across four assets – cash, gold, equities and bonds – and rebalancing back to that split whenever they diverge too much. Mainstream financial planners would probably balk at a 5% allocation to gold, let alone 25%, but how does such a strategy perform in reality and could you get your financial planner to consider it? For Australian investors hard numbers on the Per

  Gold Silver Confiscation: Can the Government Seize Assets
One concern of retail precious metals investors is the possibility of a gold confiscation.Imagine having the forethought to buy gold to shield your finances from an economic or monetary crisis—only to have it taken away from you by your government. You’d lose not just the protective buffer you put in place but potentially a chunk of your net worth.Gold confiscation may sound preposterous to investors used to securities or real estate. But it’s happened in the past enough times to make it a reaso

Too much gold around the house Store it at Texas' new precious metals depository

Precious Metals Leasing Explained
Whatis precious metals leasing, and why is it done...? LEASINGis an integral part of the precious metals market,writes Miguel Perez-Santalla at BullionVault. Why is it necessary? For a diverse number of reasons, the first is the need for industry to borrow instead of buying outright the metal. This enables them to avoid owning the metal at a fixed price if they have not yet contracted to sell their product.

I love Gold because it gives financial security 
It is not Gold in and of itself that excites me, but the many benefits of sound money. Another benefit is financial security. Can sound money give you financial security? There is something very comforting in knowing that what you earn today will retain its purchasing power in the years to come. Indeed, the same silver dime that bought a loaf of bread in the 1960s can still buy a loaf of bread with its precious metal content – which is worth about $1.00 today.

The Life Cycle of Money
In the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009, governments throughout the world have fostered a tenuous recovery predicated on massive increases in money supplies and debasement of currencies. Note however, that monetary debasement is not a recent phenomenon; it is simply the natural life cycle of money.There are six well-defined stages in the life cycle of money. This progression has occurred in every dominant civilization

Disregard disease – Ebola, Zika and whatever else is cooking out there. Things like - rising sea levels, global shortages of fresh water, simmering religious tensions, the potential for wars over mineral resources and what a higher gold price means. Disregard financial calamity, malfunctioning governments and lying sleazebag politicians leading us down the garden path. Forget about climate change, somebody else can deal with it. Is it to be inflation, disinflation, deflation or stagflation?

More Evidence of Precious Metals Mining Collapse
This is confirmation of what we recently reported regarding collapsing mining production and falling AGE sales. By 2021/2023 time frame we will begin seeing much, much higher gold and silver. As the metals reach for these new lofty heights it will be difficult, if not impossible, to revisit the current levels gold and silver are at today. Not saying the metals won’t come back to these current levels but it will be a challenge as mine supply will be drying up with new mines still being several ye
