Selco: Who Survives and Who Dies When the SHTF
This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper Did you ever wonder about the differences in how people behave in a crisis? Why some people survive and some people die? Are there characteristics that we can nurture now in good times that could help see us through bad times? I’d talked with Selco previously about who lives and who doesn’t in a long-term emergency, and a great determiner is a flexible mindset. In this interview, we go deeper into who can withstand the

Standing Ready to Lease Gold
We will take another break from capital destruction, to treat a topic which has come up this week. On March 11, we said: “…central bankers do not think about gold. Granted, they once did. In the 1960’s, there was the now-infamous London Gold Pool to keep the price of gold at $35. This is endlessly cited as evidence of current central bank price suppression, without bothering to mention that until 1971 the official US policy was to maintain the dollar to gold exchange rate of $35 to the ounce. …

Unbiased Gold Analysis of Draghi Dropping the Bias
The ECB dropped its easing bias on Thursday. Monetary hawks are pleased. But doves are holding tight. And what does gold do? Hawks Awaken in Frankfurt… A major change at the European Central Bank! On Thursday, it removed its long-standing pledge to increase bond buys if needed. In January we could read that statement: (…) if the outlook becomes less favourable, or if financial conditions become inconsistent with further progress towards a sustained adjustment in the path of inflation, we stand r

Key Change That Nobody Talks About
Last week, everyone focused on the stock market sell-off. Reasonably enough, given the pace of the declines. But the analysts failed to pay enough attention to the very important shift. That change may be more important than Trump’s victory in the presidential election. Will the critical switch make gold shine – or dull? Three Important Legacies of Yellen’s Fed Tenure A crucial change is behind us. Powell is the new boss. Yellen is out. For better or worse, she doesn’t serve as the Fed Chair any

Pere Schiff: ‘The Price Of Gold Is Going To Soar’ And ‘The Dollar WILL Collapse’
Peter Schiff recently attended the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. While he was there, he did an interview with Daniela Cambone of Kitco News and Schiff said gold is going to soar. But Schiff (who predicted the 2008 recession) also explains why he believes now may be a good opportunity to invest in physical gold.  Schiff said that the standard sentiment shared by many is that once the Federal Reserve jacks up interest rates, gold will stay level and unaffected.  But that didn’t happen.

Stock Selloffs Great for Gold
The stock markets have rocketed higher since Trump’s election win on hopes for big corporate tax cuts.  This extreme rally has left stocks exceedingly overvalued and overbought today.  A major selloff is long overdue and likely imminent.  When stocks inevitably roll over and mean revert lower to rebalance away euphoric sentiment, gold is the main beneficiary.  Gold investment demand soars when stocks materially slide. Two trading days before the November 2016 p

Gold Price Slips from 30-Month Yen High as Beijing Calls 'Fake News' on US T-Bond Rumor
GOLD PRICES rose back above $1320 per ounce against a weakening US Dollar on Thursday as major government bond yields rose once more and Beijing played down rumors it might stop or cut its demand for US government debt. Responding to Wednesday's claims from Bloomberg that the People's Bank may stop buying Treasuries as a protest against President Donald Trump's rhetoric on China's trade surplus with the US, "We learned the news thro

Gold Prices Jump with Yen, Shrug Off Bond Yields, on China-US Bonds Rumor
GOLD PRICES jumped 1.2% against a plunging Dollar in London trade Wednesday morning, setting the highest bullion-market benchmark in 4 months as financial markets whipped on rumors that China may stop buying more US government debt for its huge foreign currency reserves.

Forecast 2018 — What Could Go Wrong 
Markets If you take your cues from Consensus Trance Central — the cable news networks, The New York Times, WashPost, and HuffPo — Trump is all that ails this foundering empire. Well, Trump and Russia, since the Golden Golem of Greatness is in league with Vladimir Putin to loot the world, or something like that. Since I believe that the financial system is at the heart of today’s meta-question (What Could Go Wrong?), it would be perhaps more to the point to ask: what has held this matrix of racke

Will Tax Bill Sink Gold
This week, the U.S. Congress approved the tax bill. What does it mean for the gold market? So it finally happened. After months of struggle, the U.S. lawmakers passed a tax reform on Wednesday. Now, Trump has to sign it into law. What’s in the final version? The bill maintains current seven tax brackets for individuals, but temporarily lowers most income levels and rates for each one. It also increases the standard deduction. The major change for corporations is a permanent cut in corporate inco

ECB Meeting in December 2017 and Gold
On Thursday, the European Central Bank released its most recent monetary policy statement. What does it say about the ECB’s stance and what does it imply for the gold market? It was a hot weekend for central banking. On Wednesday, the FOMC hiked interest rates and presented fresh economic projections. We will come back to this event on Monday, but today we will analyze yesterday’s ECB meeting. Contrary to the Fed, the ECB kept its monetary policy unchanged. But similarly to the U.S. central bank

Fake Tax Reform
After supposedly chomping on the bit for years to pass meaningful tax reform, Republicans are now set to blow an historic opportunity. Whatever version of the Bill that emerges from the House and Senate Conference Committee (which will be signed by President Trump faster than he can down a Filet o’Fish), will be far less than the Republicans envisioned when they finally captured the White House and both Congressional Chambers in 2016. But from what I have seen of the particulars, the revisions t

Fed Concerned Bitcoin Will “Eviscerate” Big Banks No, Not Really!
A rumor is circulating that the Fed concerned Bitcoin will “eviscerate” big banks. Let's investigate the claim.Zerohedge writes As Bitcoin Nears $10,000 "Central Banks Kept Up At Night". Here is the line that caught my attention: "St. Louis Fed President James Bullard admitted to Reuters in a recent interview what the real concern was: '(We could) wake up one day and most of the big banks have been eviscerated and most of that activity has moved elsewhere.'" I tracked that that claim back to the

ICOs VS. Venture Capital and Banks
Traditionally, if you have a great business idea but lack the finances to get the project started, you would pursue funding through a venture capital outlet.There are hundreds of venture capital firms that spend tens of billions of dollars helping businesses get off the ground. However, not all startups attain venture capital funding, andsome estimateson venture capital rejections are as high as 99%. In this way, attaining venture capital funding can feel like an episode of Shark Tank in which b

In July, rumor had it that National Economic Council director Gary Cohn was a shoo-in to replace Yellen.

On September 24, Germans will elect members of the Bundestag, who will ultimately decide whether Angela Merkel, the incumbent chancellor, will govern for another four years. The opinion polls indicate that this is indeed likely to happen – and Merkel will win a fourth term in office.

Robbed for My Gold: Learn From My Mistakes
Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals AnalystI was robbed of my gold.True story. I had a bunch of gold Eagles and Maple Leafs stolen from my home – most of my personal holdings at the time. The thing is, I thought they were secure: the coins were stored in a small safe, well hidden from view, with a key kept in a separate room. I never talked about them (this was before I started writing about gold publicly). They had been delivered discreetly.But all the precautions I’d taken didn’t matter. The th

Financial Choice Act, FOMC Preview and Gold
Last week, the House approved a bill dubbed the “Financial Choice Act.” What does it imply for the gold market? And what should we expect from today’s FOMC meeting? On Thursday, when the investors focused on Comey’s testimony, Republicans voted to pass the Financial Choice Act which scales back or eliminates many of the regulations introduced by the Dodd-Frank bill. The bill passed 233-186 with 11 members abstaining. The legislation is believed by Republicans to provide regulatory relief for sma
