  Common Gold Silver Pitfalls to Avoid 
Investing in gold and silver may seem simple and straightforward, however it is not. There are many types of ( quote, unquote ) "investments" in gold and silver you will want to avoid. Gold and silver dealers are no different from any other industry or crowd of people. Within our industry you will find many good honest professionals and organizations, but you will also find some bad outfits whose practices can be described as underhanded, even criminal.

Tulips, Railways and Why We Don't Take Bitcoin

ONE KEY requirement of money, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault, is that it doesn't drop 27% of its purchasing power inside 4 days... ...only to regain all that drop again in the following 72 hours.

Protect Your Savings With Gold: ECB Propose End To Deposit Protection
It is the ‘opinion of the European Central Bank’ that the deposit protection scheme is no longer necessary: ‘covered deposits and claims under investor compensation schemes should be replaced by limited discretionary exemptions to be granted by the competent authority in order to retain a degree of flexibility.’ To translate the legalese jargon of the ECB bureaucrats this could mean that the current €100,000 (£85,000) deposit level currently protected in the event of a bail-in may soon be no mor

Year end tax season and precious metals
We are now close to the end of the year where people adjust portfolios with taxes in mind. For securities there is a “wash rule” provision not allowing the repurchase of the same security for 30 days. Otherwise in the case of a loss, the loss will be disallowed and cannot be used against gains to lower your taxes. This is not the case in commodities. Physical gold and silver are considered “commodities” for tax purposes and are not subject to the 30 day wash rule. Miles Franklin has solicited le

Sentiment Synopsis
The Commitments of Traders (COT) reports are nothing other than sentiment indicators, but as far as sentiment indicators go they are among the most useful. In fact, for some markets, including gold, silver, copper and the major currencies, the COT reports are by far the best indicators of sentiment. This is because they reflect how the broad category known as speculators is betting. Sentiment surveys, on the other hand, usually focus on a relatively small sample and are, by definition, based on

Stumbling Into the Bubble Zone
Bubbles are a fact of financial life! We know about the Dutch Tulip Bubble and the English South Sea bubble.  Silly – right?  They couldn’t happen in this modern age! Think again! Consider the following examples, a few of many that could be shown. Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin. Amazon, Apple, Bitcoin and other stocks show vertical rises – classic bubble behavior.  They might implode soon or their prices could rise even higher.  There are few limits on crazy price moves and central bank currency p

The Cycle of Falling Interest
Over the past few weeks, we have looked at the effects of falling interest rates: falling discount applied to future cash flows (and hence rising stock and bond prices), and especially falling marginal productivity of debt (MPoD). Falling MPoD means that we get less and less GDP “juice” for each new dollar of borrowing “squeeze”. Last week, we proposed an economic law: if MPoD < 1 then the economy is unsustainable. MPoD has been falling since at least 1950, and is currently well under 0.4 (havin

Is Silver's Underperformance a Positive Sign?
Technical analyst Clive Maund explains why he sees silver's prolonged underperformance as the sign of a bottom. Like gold, silver now appears to be completing an intermediate Head-and-Shoulders top that we can see on its latest chart below, within a much larger and very bullish Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern. Both these Head-and-Shoulders tops are related to the Head-and-Shoulders bottom that just completed in the dollar index, that we look at in

Another insider feels compelled to admit the gold market is rigged
Writing over the weekend for the Sharps Pixley bullion dealership in London, market analyst Lawrie Williams confided that he increasingly believes that the gold market is being rigged. Williams wrote that he has been pushed to such a conclusion by the growing number of smashes to the market out of the blue. Williams wrote: "We have just seen yet another instance of a totally insane volume of notional gold hitting the futures markets, surely designed to stop any positive momentum for gold in its

Zinc's Rise Shines a Light on Pure-Play Producers and Explorers
With the price of zinc rising, investors are taking a second look at producers and explorers. Most people have no idea what zinc is used for, but it actually is the fourth most produced mineral in the world, trailing only iron, aluminum and copper. Its uses may not appear to be exciting, but they are essential: as a coating on iron and steel to protect them from rusting and as an alloy for creating bronze and brass, for instance. Zinc o

'Nothing is real,' analyst Mannarino tells USAWatchdog's Hunter
