Trump, Charlottesville and Gold
Last week, the counter-rally against the far-right protest in Charlottesville turned into tragedy. What does it mean for the gold market? As both the Fed and the ECB released the minutes of their last meetings, we have recently focused on monetary policy. However, the last week was also hot for Donald Trump. On August 12, there was a protest of far-right groups against the decision to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee. In response, a counter-protest was organized. But it ende

Gold Miners’ Q2’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q2’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued. Four times a year publicly-traded compan

July ECB Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the ECB’s July meeting were released. What do they say about the ECB stance and what do they mean for the gold market? On Wednesday, the FOMC released minutes from its July meeting. Yesterday, the ECB followed and issued its own recent minutes, which are called “Account of the monetary policy meeting”. Similarly to its U.S. counterpart, the ECB minutes were considered by the markets as dovish. This is because they showed that the officials were worried about the continu

June FOMC Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June meeting were released. What do they say about the Fed’s stance and what do they mean for the gold market? How can we summarize the recent FOMC minutes? Well, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. But the most important discussion concerned three other issues. First, several participants noted uncertainty about the future course of the

U.S. Financial Stability and Gold
Recently, Fischer made an assessment of financial stability in the United States. What can we learn from it? On June 27, Stanley Fischer, Fed Vice Chairman, delivered a speech entitled “An Assessment of Financial Stability in the United States” at the IMF Workshop on Financial Surveillance and Communication: Best Practices from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Advanced Economies, Washington, D.C.

Bitcoin Buying And Bullion Swaps-The Wisdom Of Experience
Alright, let’s start by getting the B.S. out of the way – of how stocks are rising, and bullion falling, due to the “diminished Korean threat.”  To start with, amidst supposed investor “terror” of nuclear Armageddon, the VIX, even at its most “terrifying” point, barely rose – whilst the stock market had exactly one bad day; during which, care of the PPT, the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average”  fell just 0.93%.  Conversely, the “safe-haven surge” into PMs produced exactly one violation of the gold Ca

Tax Reform, Debt Ceiling and Gold
When lawmakers return from their August recess, they will have to deal with the debt ceiling and the tax reform. What does it mean for the gold market? We are in the middle of summer and the lawmakers are on their holidays. So nothing should disturb our peace of mind now. Nothing except the vision of nuclear holocaust after the World War III triggered by the U.S. fire and fury against the North Korea, of course. However, when the recess ends, the lawmakers will have to tackle with the debt ceili

Bullard, Evans, Dudley and Gold
This week, a few FOMC members delivered speeches. What do they imply for the gold market? On Monday, James Bullard, St. Louis Fed President, said that the low inflation may not be temporary, so the Fed can leave interest rates unchanged: “The current level of the policy rate is likely to remain appropriate over the near term," Bullard said in slides prepared ahead of a speech to the America’s Cotton Marketing Cooperatives 2017 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.” Bullard’s insights are interesti

Physical Precious Metal Portfolio Swaps-Everyone Has Their Own Reasons
Two weeks ago, I made the rare, bold step of proclaiming this the “most Precious Metal bullish I have ever been.”  The reason being, that never before had so many “PiMBEEB,” or Precious Metal bullish, everything-else-bearish, factors been present and/or imminent – politically, economically, and monetarily.  Including, I might add, the increasingly large odds that “” Trump will ignite a major war, be it in Syria, Iran, or North Korea; in each case, involving our “biggest geopolitical foe” Russia

Fire, Fury and Gold
The war of words between the U.S. and North Korea continues. What does it imply for the gold market? The rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea are the hottest topic right now. Yesterday, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis issued a statement saying that Pyongyang “must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons” and that North Korea “should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.” H

Cryptocurrency - its status as money
The cryptocurrency craze is fascinating to an economist, or at least a student of catallactics, because it is a test of the theory of exchange ratios and prices, which is what catallactics is about.For this reason, the outcome of the cryptocurrency craze is of great theoretical interest. It is also of interest to students of the psychology of speculation.Supporters of cryptocurrencies claim they are money. If they are unable to substantiate this claim, then we must conclude that cryptocurrencies

Crude Oil - Precious Metals Link in August
Based on the August 8th, 2017 Oil Investment Update In the previous month crude oil gained almost 9% as declines in crude oil, gasoline and distillates inventories continued to support the price of the commodity. In that environment light crude climbed above the psychologically important barrier of $50 and closed July above it. Despite this bullish development, the price of the black gold slipped below it at the beginning of August. Is this just a bigger pullback or the first sign of a longer do

Rising Tensions with North Korea and Gold
Tensions with North Korea are rising. What does it imply for the gold market? The crisis on the Korean peninsula is exacerbating. On Saturday, the U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea in response to its recent tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles. After the sanctions were levied, which could reduce the regime’s annual export revenue by a third, the communist country vowed to exact “thousandfold” revenge against the U.S., as they violated North Korea’s so

Volatility in Gold Declines
Volatility in gold has been decreasing recently. What does it mean for the gold market? While Bitcoin is prone to wild swings, gold’s volatility remained muted (which may, by the way, explain the recent divergence between gold and gold miners). According to this interesting article, gold option traders expect that the price of gold will not move more than 2.4 percent in the next month. That number results from the cost of a long straddle strategy, which implies the purchase of both call and put

Preparing for THE Bottom in Gold: Part 5 – How to Buy
In the first part of the Preparing for THE Bottom series, we emphasized the need to be sure to stay alert and focused in the precious metals market, even though it may not appear all that interesting. We argued that preparing for the big moves in gold that are likely to be seen later this year should prove extremely worth one’s while. In the second part of the series, we discussed when, approximately, one can expect the key bottom in gold to form (reminder: this winter appears a likely target) a

Only Ten Year After the Last Financial Crisis the Banks Are At It Again
If at times his [Andrew Jackson's] passionate devotion to this cause of the average citizen lent an amazing zeal to his thoughts, to his speech and to his actions, the people loved him for it the more. They realized the intensity of the attacks made by his enemies, by those who, thrust from power and position, pursued him with relentless hatred. The beneficiaries of the abuses to which he put an end pursued him with all the violence that political passions can generate. But the people of his day

It’s So Because I Say It Is
We’ve been talking about The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. July 23, 2017: The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner July 31, 2017: The Midas Paradox #2: Blame Gold The primary claim of the book is that gold’s value soared higher, in an unprecedented and disastrous fashion, sometime beginning around 1929. Over the years, there have been a number of arguments that gold’s value goes up and down by substantial amounts. Other people have said that gold’s value is basically stable, and doesn’

Gold Demand in Q2 2017

Gold demand in the second quarter of 2017 was 953.4 tons, a decline from 1,034.5 in Q1. It implies a 10-percent decline year-on-year. As in the previous quarter, the negative headline was mainly caused by weaker inflows into gold ETFs. Although global holdings increased by 56 tons, it was less than one-

July ADP, Manufacturing and Gold
This week was full of important data. How can the recent economic reports affect the gold market? Yesterday, we analyzed data on the recent personal outlays and income. However, more interesting economic reports were released this week. Let’s start with Wednesday’s ADP. The U.S. nonfarm private sector added 178,000 jobs, following 191,000 in June (after upward revision). The change is generally in line with expectations, but the downward trend, which started at the beginning of the year, continu

June U.S. Consumer Spending and Gold
U.S. consumer spending rose 0.1 percent in June. What does it mean for the gold market? Personal consumption expenditures increased 0.1 percent in June, following a 0.2 percent rise in May (after an upward revision). The rise is soft – U.S. consumer spending increased by the smallest amount in five months – but in line with expectations.
