Europe, Brexit and the credit cycle
Europe’s financial and systemic troubles have retreated from the headlines. This is partly due to the financial media’s attention switching to President Trump and the US budget negotiations, partly due to Brexit and the preoccupation with Britain’s problems, and partly due to evidence of economic recovery in the Eurozone, at long last. And finally, anyone who can put digit to computer key has been absorbed by the cryptocurrency phenomenon.Just because commentary is focused elsewhere does not mea

We Are Long Silver and Long Gold
We are long physical silver and long physical gold – we are not “short” anything except cryptocurrencies. Why are we “short” cryptocurrencies? We don’t own any. Oh, that’s right, no one “owns” any, as they are nothing more than an illusion on a computer screen. We will never again be “short” any metal. We don’t gamble when it comes to precious metals – we take possession and move on. Nothing to do with the COMEX or LBMA or any trading desk. Keep it simple – local coin dealer or online acquisitio

Merry Christmas to You—Bullion Premiums at Decade Lows
There’s nothing like a bargain during the holidays. And here’s an unexpected one even I was surprised to see…It’s not easy to dig up industry-wide data on coin and bar premiums. To do it manually is incredibly time-consuming and then would be out of date as soon as you published it, since premiums always fluctuate.But we’ve snagged both wholesale and retail data from a couple sources. And there’s a very clear message from these statistics: gold bullion is on the SALE rack…Wholesale Prices: Plung

Asset Prices Are Prices Too
We live in inflationary times. Some people might consider this statement controversial. This is because these days inflation is widely understood as a rise in the consumer price index (CPI) of more than 2 percent per year. However, there are convincing reasons to question this viewpoint. On the one hand, the CPI does not include “assets” such as, for instance, stocks, housing, real estate, etc. As a result, the price developments of these goods are not accounted for by the changes in the CPI.On

Buy Silver During Bubble Craziness
CHARACTERISTICS OF BUBBLE CRAZINESS: S. stocks, according to many measures, are the most over-valued in history. We live in a Bubble Zone! Read Mystery Markets, Bubbles, and Less Risky Gold. Bitcoin and other cryptos are definitely in a bubble, but they could rise even higher. Bonds yield little, and in many European countries, less than zero. Central banks have created this distortion to the detriment of savers, insurance companies and pension funds. Real estate: Some locations, such as New Ze

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

Bitcoin Hyper-Deflation
A meme we have seen in the bitcoin community seems to be gaining traction. Bitcoin is deflationary. That is prices of things, measured in bitcoin, are falling. For example, in spring 2011, gasoline was Ƀ1.00. This week, that same gallon had fallen to Ƀ0.0001875. Gas has gone down by 99.98 percent! We don’t think that even the diehard bitcoin bugs really believe this. But it leads to an interesting point. In the past, we have used the analogy of measuring a steel meter stick with stretchy rubber

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.

Silver Bullion 'Set to Beat Gold' in 2018 as Both Hit 5-Month Lows, Bitcoin Whips 20 from New Top
GOLD and SILVER prices steadied above 5-month lows versus the US Dollar in London trade Friday, rallying into the weekend as global stock markets rose. The EuroStoxx 50 index of Europe's largest corporations added 1.8% for the week. Commodities edged higher but major government bond prices slipped further from Thursday's drop, when gold fell to its lowest since early July at $1244 p

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

Mystery Markets, Bubbles and Less Risky Gold
Consider graphs of three markets from the past. These are well known and important markets, but the names, prices and time scales are not shown. They are plotted on linear scales. Note: Structure: Each market moved progressively more vertical before crashing. Bubble: Each market bubbled upward to an unsustainable level and collapsed. Timing: Few predicted the dates or prices for these bubble tops, but many observed their bubble characteristics. The Public: The charts show that each market moved

Precious Metals Breaking Down! 3 Amigos to Abort? 4 Horsemen to Ride?
I am not trying to be a wise guy with the first half of the title (it’s a goof on alarmist media), but if you were not bear biased or outright bearish on the gold sector’s daily and weekly technicals, and its macro and sector fundamentals by now all you have left are the alarmist headlines now telling us about H&S breakdowns, HUI/Gold ratio bearishness and whatever else is going on out there in media large and small to scare the lowly gold bug.As noted in an NFTRH update last night…It’s hard to

World Gold Council plans another ETF
From ETF.com, New York Monday, December 4, 2017 The World Gold Council has filed for a new physical gold ETF. The Gold Trust will be very similar to the $35 billion SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the world's largest gold fund, but with key differences. At first glance, the fund looks like it will go head to head with GLD, but maybe not. It seems unlikely the World Gold Council would want to cannibalize a successful existing product that already has its backing. The filing is actually quite vague, with a

The Chances Are Exactly Zero
Financial sanity and stability may not return, but we can protect our assets and learn from the discussion. The DOW, S&P500, NASDAQ and other markets sell at all-time highs. However, we know many imbalances exist within our financial world. This is not new – things have been crazy before, are now, and will be again. But to regain financial sanity we need: From “Doug Casey on the New Fed Chair” “In an ideal world there would be some radical changes. The best thing for the US in the (famous) long

What’s the Point
A reader emailed us, to ask a few pointed questions. Paraphrasing, they are: Who cares if dollars are calculated in gold or gold is calculated in dollars? People care only if their purchasing power has grown. What is the basis good for? Is it just mathematical play for gold theorists? How does knowing the basis help your readers? Is it just a theoretical explanation of what has already happened? Prove that if someone has known the basis for the last four years, he has benefitted. He also added
