  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.

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

Hot bullion coin offers new opportunity to enjoy Dragon and Phoenix design

Gold And Silver: Something Different Is Occurring - Dave Kranzler
JP Morgan, at least according to the daily Comex warehouse report, added over half a million ozs of silver to its “historic” stash of silver at the Comex: TF Metals Report. It would be even more interesting to see an actual independent accounting of that specific metal which would track the serial numbers on the bars to the legal owner of title. I’ve been hedged in my mining stock portfolio since early September. The signal for me to hedge is the reliable Comex bank “net short” posi

Diversification Adds Nothing
The dumbest investing idea you'll read before the next stockmarket crash...

October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

What You Know for Sure that Just Ain’t So!
It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so. -Mark Twain We know many things for sure.  Examples are: In 1913 we knew that a European war was unlikely because European countries would not engage in pointless and mutually destructive actions. Later we knew it as “the war to end all wars.” In 1915 we knew that the war would be over in a matter of weeks. In 1929 we knew that the stock market had reached a permanently high price plateau. In

Silver bullion prices are expected to jump as solar and smartphone demand rises and the Fed tries to stave off economic weakness Gold prices have far outpaced gains in silver so far this year, but silver will emerge as the winner for the second year in a row.

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Gold: Demand Vacuum Has Silver Lining
Since I issued my “book profits now” call for gold several weeks ago, the price has declined relentlessly from the $1360 area high. Investors want to know if I see signs that a fresh rally could begin. The good news is that gold/silver stocks and silver bullion look better than gold bullion. Some stocks are rallying strongly while gold oozes lower. This is the main problem for gold right now; a collapse in Indian market demand.
