Mystery Markets, Bubbles and Less Risky Gold
Consider graphs of three markets from the past. These are well known and important markets, but the names, prices and time scales are not shown. They are plotted on linear scales. Note: Structure: Each market moved progressively more vertical before crashing. Bubble: Each market bubbled upward to an unsustainable level and collapsed. Timing: Few predicted the dates or prices for these bubble tops, but many observed their bubble characteristics. The Public: The charts show that each market moved

Benjamin Constant
On the Liberty of the Ancients Compared with that of the Moderns
He loved liberty as other men love power," was the judgment passed on Benjamin Constant by a 19th-century admirer. His great public concern, all throughout his adult life, was the attainment of a free society, especially for his adopted country, France; and if a (by no means uncritical) French commentator exag

Russia, China and BRICS: A New Gold Trading Network
One of the most notable events in Russia’s precious metals market calendar is the annual “Russian Bullion Market” conference. Formerly known as the Russian Bullion Awards, this conference, now in its 10th year, took place this year on Friday 24 November in Moscow. Among the speakers lined up, the most notable inclusion was probably Sergey Shvetsov, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s central bank, the Bank of Russia. In his speech, Shvetsov provided an update on an important development involving

Gold and Silver versus Twilight Zone Bubbles
Every bubble inflates, rises vertically, excites the masses (get rich now – don’t be left behind), appears unstoppable and crashes. The sun rises and sets. Twilight emerges. Empires, markets, and ideas enter their twilight zone where huge changes occur. Those changes may not happen next week or next month, but soon. Expect the bubbles in stocks and bonds to burst, as they inevitably must, and precious metals to rise – finally! Consider the following bubble examples: Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin.

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

BRICS Gold Trade Settlement To Begin in 2018? - Rory Hall
My guess is it will take Russia and China and the other BRICS nations most of 2018 to get all the nuances worked out and the gold trade settlement contracts will not actually come to the table until 2019 or possibly even 2020. We say this in light of what happened with the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) bringing their gold settlement mechanism online back in April 2016. The SGE was supposed to bring this online in October 2015, but was unable to make it happen as they wished to avoid any m

Sentiment Synopsis, Part 2
A blog post titled “Sentiment Synopsis” posted two weeks ago contained some explanatory remarks about the Commitments of Traders (COT) reports and briefly discussed the sentiment situations for gold, silver, the Canadian dollar and the Yen using the COT data as the indicators of market sentiment. In this post I’ll do the same for the euro, the Swiss franc and oil, again with the help of charts from Gold Charts ‘R’ Us. As noted in the earlier post, what I refer to as the total speculative net pos

BRICS countries mull forming single gold trade system
http://tass.com/economy/977276 MOSCOW -- BRICS countries are discussing the possibility of establishing a single gold trade system, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Central Bank Sergey Shvetsov said Friday. "The traditional (trade) system based in London and partially in Swiss cities is becoming less relevant, as new trade hubs are emerging, first of all in India, China and South Africa." Shvetsov said.

11,000 KG GOLD FOR A PAINTING – WILL COST 110 KG IN 2025
What is absolutely certain is that global wealth will be totally decimated in the next 4-8 years. It doesn’t matter if you are very rich or “just own a house” with some equity left. Most of it will come down in value by 75-95% in the next few years as the debt and asset bubbles implode. But what very few people realise or plan for, is the confiscation of wealth that will take place in coming years. There will be confiscation on many levels. With times deteriorating, governments will be thrown ou

Did Market Breadth Confirm The New Highs In Stocks?
Bad Breadth Can Foreshadow Bear Markets Market breadth speaks to the number of stocks participating in an advance. Strong market breadth means a high percentage of stocks are making new highs as the major indexes make new highs. Strong breadth also aligns with widespread confidence in stocks and the economy. Bearish Divergence In 2000 The chart below tracks the number of NYSE stocks making new highs minus the number making new lows. A bearish divergence was clearly evident well before the bull

Platinum Betting Turns Positive as Gold Bullion Finds Another 'Event-Driven Bid'
GOLD BULLION slipped together with silver and platinum ahead of the US open on Monday, down 0.5% from last week's 1-month high just below $1300 per ounce as world stock markets fell following the weekend's collapse of coalition government talks in Germany.

China Gold Import Jan-Sep 777t. Who’s Supplying
While the gold price is slowly crawling upward in the shadow of the current cryptocurrency boom, China continues to import huge tonnages of the yellow metal. As usual, Chinese investors bought on the price dips in the past quarters, steadfastly accumulating for a rainy day. The Chinese appear to be price sensitive regarding gold, as was mentioned in the most recent World Gold Council Demand Trends report, and can also be observed by Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) premiums – going up when the gold

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
