Basic Gold Market Facts 
Here are ten basic gold-market realities that are either unknown or ignored by many gold 'experts'.1. Supply always equals demand, with the price changing to maintain the equivalence. In this respect the gold market is no different from any other market that clears, but it's incredible how often comments like "demand is increasing relative to supply" appear in gold-related articles.2. The supply of gold is the total aboveground gold inventory, which is currently somewhere in the 150K-200K tonne

What Trumps Dollars and Gold
I have commented and written extensively on the generally negative correlation of the US dollar and gold. In simple terms, when the US dollar moves up or down, the price of gold tends to do the opposite. This makes sense because the price of gold is quoted on world markets in good ol’ American greenbacks. That said, there are many other factors that contribute to the price of gold. These include: world economic health; geopolitical events; physical demand for jewelry, investment, hoarding, and i

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Is Gold Real Money In the U.S. Canada it is!
Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, coined the phrase “Time is Money”.  Fortunately for owners of precious metal currency coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and the U.S. Mint, they own money as well. They are both considered legal tender with a Government face value! There are laws enacted by both countries to enhance the ownership value for these types of coins. What does that mean to you? Protection is the first thing that enters my mind as an owner of p

Exploding Reasons To Own Precious Metals-Particularly This Rare Numismatic Opportunity!
As I sit down to write on this “President’s Day,” I can’t help but consider how diluted the stature – and goodness – of the Presidential Office has become.  And this has nothing to do with Donald Trump personally, but the fact that essentially everything the post- Financial Crisis government has done has been detrimental to the public, causing the office to lose the admiration – and cache – it had when America was indeed “great.” Unfortunately, a combination of unfettered global population growt

Behind The Spot Price of Gold - Nico Simons
Many people think that the price of gold for buyers and sellers is determined through the LMBA Gold Price Auction (formerly LBMA Gold Fix). This is not correct.

  Buy Gold, Lose 8 on a 6 Profit
Want to buy gold? If you don't hold it, you might get to make a profit...! YOU typically buy gold because you want to defend your savings, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Yet many people insist on giving away 10% of their money – or more – every time they buy and sell gold coins or small bars. February 2016, for instance, has seen gold's best monthly rise since November 2008 in terms of the British Pound, rising over 14% as Sterling has sunk amid the growing Brexit crisis. That's

From Good Delivery bars to Kilobars – The Swiss Refineries, the GFMS data, and the LBMA
In early September 2015, I wrote an article titled “Moving the goalposts….The LBMA’s shifting stance on gold refinery production statistics”, in which I explained how the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) had, on Wednesday 5 August, substantially lowered its 2013 gold and silver refinery production statistics literally a few days after I had commented on the sizeable figure of 6601 tonnes of 2013 refined gold production that the LBMA had previously published in May 2015.
