New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle, Switzerland: Part 1
“In the Governor’s absence I attended the meeting in Zijlstra’s room in the BIS on the afternoon of Monday, 10th December to continue discussions about a possible gold pool. Emminger, de la Geniere, de Strycker, Leutwiler, Larre and Pohl were present.”      13 December 1979 – Kit McMahon to Gordon Richardson, Bank of England Introduction A central bank Gold Pool which many people will be familiar with operated in the gold market between November 1961 and March 1968.

Banker Gold Price Suppression Currency Manipulations Have Persisted for 50 years
This 1967 meeting of the FOMC nearly 46 years ago is clear and indisputable evidence of gold price suppression and currency manipulation of the world's "free" and "open" market exchanges.  This criminal cabal has certainly built up their mechanisms since this time to conceal their sinister scheme from issuing dishonest money. It's blatant now and all of "in your face" is their behavioral response to inquiry. Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. If you find this too cumbersome to read, the Fed

Fed, Bank of England deceived Bundesbank on coin-melt bars in 1968
Citing Bank of England records, Zero Hedge reveals tonight that as the London Gold Pool was collapsing in 1968 the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England conspired to conceal from the GermanBundesbank the deficient gold content of U.S. gold bars, apparently made from coin melt, that were being transferred to theBundesbank to conclude gold swaps.

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

FOMC Minutes from 1967 Illuminating Central Bank Gold Price Suppression, Market Manipulations
The issue before us here is not so much the mechanics of deception, but the tenacity and conviction of the banking cartel to use any means to protect themselves.

Investment Fads 
We have been fascinated by the chart on the publically-traded shares of the Swiss National Bank. Yes, it is the central bank, it trades, it zooms and it is long the latest fad in investing. Fiduciary responsibility being a constriction has become a neglected concept. Their reserves have been committed to equities and the chart records the euphoria of the day. As one would expect the biggest positions include the fad stocks of today. In the 1980s, we first wrote a piece on life insurance compan

Will the Great Unwind Sink Gold
In the August 2017 edition of the Market Overview, we analyzed the hawkish turn among major central banks. We pointed out that “Europe has recently been among the most surprising positive economic regions in the world”, which should induce the ECB to taper its quantitative easing program in the fall, supporting both the EUR/USD exchange rate and the price of gold. This is exactly what happened. The dollar lost more than 3 percent in 2018 against the euro, while gold jumped above $1,350 (as of Ja

Never Underestimate the Replacement Power of Equities Within a (HYPER) Inflationary Spiral 
Before I launch into one of my classic, bitter, vitriolic diatribes against all forms of modern-day interventionalist-type, fraudulent excuses for what use to be "free markets," have a gander at the chart below. Pay particular attention to the smiles on all of those beaming faces. . . Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, sidekick Hank Paulson, "Rescue Queen" Janet Yellen, and finally Donald "the Swamp Filler" Trump have all conspired and colluded to ensure that the world has perennially rising stock

Bubble Watch: The Fed KNOWS We're in a 1999-Type Mania...
The Fed raised rates another 0.25% the week before last. This marks the 5th rate hike since the Fed embarked on its policy tightening in December 2015 and the fourth rate hike in the last 12 months. The Fed’s latest statement also indicates it plans on raising rates three more times in 2018. It is easy to gloss over the significance of this, but the Fed’s actions are indeed unusual; other major Central Banks (the Swiss National Bank, Bank of Japan, European Central Bank and Bank of England) are

EVERY WORKING AMERICAN OWES $ 1.5 MILLION
The facts just don’t add up. US wages are falling, trade deficit is at 10 year high, debt is surging so are stocks and the US Government has again managed to publish a number of contradicting employment figures that make no sense whatsoever. A CONFIDENT BUT UNEMPLOYED CONSUMER US Consumer Sentiment US Consumer Sentiment is the highest in 13 years. At the same time US October Household Employment Survey dropped 484,000 and the Labour Force shrank by 765,000. But due to manipulation of the figure

  Get Ready To Party Like It’s 2008 - Dave Kranzler
Apparently Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin, has threatened Congress with stock crash if Congress doesn’t pass a tax reform Bill. His reason is that the stock market surge since the election was based on the hopes of a big tax cut. This reminds me of 2008, when then-Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs CEO, Henry Paulson, and Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, paraded in front of Congress and threatened a complete systemic collapse if Congress didn’t authorize an $800

Don’t hold your gold in a Swiss Bank
Don’t hold gold in a Swiss Bank or in any bank in any country. We regularly see examples both in medium sized and big Swiss banks that should make bank clients very concerned. Here are some examples: A client stores physical gold in a bank but when he wants us to organise a transfer to private vaults, the gold doesn’t exist and the bank must acquire it. 400 oz gold bars that were bought by the bank for the client in 2005, were cast in 2011, so the gold never existed. A client stores gold in a b

The Monotonous Madness of Managed Markets
So there you have it. A clear breakout to all-time highs confirmed by every measure everywhere with momentum charging ahead and high-fives and champagne corks flying about with reckless abandon and serial glee. To quote Chuck Prince, who left Citigroup in 2007 with an exit bonus of around $12.5 million, $68 million in stock and options, $1.7 million pension, an office, a car and a driver for five years during which time Citigroup shed $64 BILLION in valuation, "As long as the music is playing, y

Newton's Third Law
In late August, we decided to anchor our boat out in a place called Indian Harbour, a wonderful "safe haven" for boaters that love northern Georgian Bay, in an effort to make the most of what has been an absolutely dreadful summer for most people in the east-central part of Canada and the U.S. This little harbour is protected by a small sliver of rock and trees that separates it from the ravages of the prevailing westerlies which whip across the prairies gathering momentum until they descent upo

PHYSICAL GOLD – THE ONLY PENSION FUND TO SURVIVE
There are probabilities in markets and there are certainties. It is very probable that investors will lose a major part of their assets held in stocks, bonds and property over the next 5-7 years. It is also probable that they will lose most of their money held in banks, either by bank failure or currency debasement. Who buys a bond that will go to Zero? What is not probable, but absolutely certain, is that investors who buy the new Austrian 100-year bond yielding 2.1% are going to lose all their

Why Bitcoin Will Make Gold And Silver Go Up, PT ll
Ho hum.  Another first Friday of the month, and another fabricated “jobs” report with not a shred of correlation to real economic activity.  Like, for instance, the completely ignored fact that – as I have discussed ad nauseum – the BLS’ “birth-death model”; which as we recently learned, accounts for 93% of all new “jobs” since the 2008 crisis; is based on the creation of unreported jobs at small businesses.  This, despite the “inconvenient truth” that more small businesses have “died” since 200

The West lost at least another 1000 tonnes of large gold bars in 2015
Over the last number of years, one of the most interesting trends in the physical gold world is the ongoing conversion of large 400 ounce gold bars into smaller high purity 1 kilogram gold bars to meet the insatiable demand of Asian gold markets such as China and India. This transformation of 400 ounce bars into 1 kilogram bars is an established fact and is irrefutable given the large amount of evidence which proves it is happening, as has been documented on the BullionStar website and elsewhere
