Robert Lambourne: BIS gold derivatives fall in December but remain hefty
* * * By Robert Lambourne Disclosures in the December 2017 statement of account published by the Bank for International Settlements -- https://www.bis.org/banking/balsheet/statofacc171231.pdf -- indicate that during December the bank reduced substantially its use of gold swaps and other gold-related derivatives. The information provided in the BIS monthly statement of account is not sufficient to calculate a precise amount of gold-related derivatives, including swaps, but it appears that the tot

Four Key Trends for Gold Market in 2018
The World Gold Council published its gold market outlook for 2018. Will gold continue its January rally or should we expect declines? Solid Gold’s Performance in 2017 The World Gold Council begins its report with a short summary of 2017.

Is Tether a Scam That Will Crash the Bitcoin Price by 80
Tether is a “stablecoin” which aims to maintain a value of one US dollar per tether. It it connected to Bitfinex and created by officers from the company, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Tether Limited claims that Tether is backed by reserves of U.S. dollars on a one-to-one basis. But some are claiming that Tether is not backed by dollars and is created out of thin air in order to pump the price of Bitcoin higher. They claim that Tether is a scam that will implode and c

Dollar Destruction and Inexpensive Commodities
Americans buy groceries with dollars. Most of the world buys crude oil with dollars.  World trade depends upon dollars. That is changing but for now, it’s a fact. SO WHAT? If dollars weaken against other fiat currencies and against commodities, it takes more dollars to buy the same stuff. That extra-hot, sugar free, half-caf, soy latte for five bucks could be priced at seven bucks next year.  Gasoline in the U.S. was $0.25 fifty years ago and now it’s ten times more expensive. Slow or fast, doll

The Blockchain Revolution Is Heading To Space
There is a new wave of coders and hackers looking to upend the entire internet, signaling the start of a brand new space race. No, this isn’t an episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley, this is actually happening. Currently, the internet is built by large centralized services including server owners, data managers, cloud providers, search engines, telecommunication companies, and social media websites.

As Asia takes over gold trade, World Gold Council considers standard for kilobars
LONDON -- The World Gold Council is studying the creation of a global standard for gold kilobars so they can be deployed as collateral in futures markets and potentially encourage demand, sources close to the matter said. Kilobars -- 1 kilogram gold bars -- dominate Asian trade but a lack of transparency about their origin and the absence of a global standard hinders their use on exchanges elsewhere. Clearing houses, some of which allow bullion to be used as collateral on futures markets, might

US Gold Reserves, Of Immense Interest to Russia and China
Recently, Russian television network RT extensively quoted me in a series of articles about the US Government’s gold reserves. The RT articles, published on the RT.com website, were based on a series of questions RT put to me about various aspects of the official US gold reserves. These gold reserves are held by the US Treasury, mostly in the custody of the US Mint. The US Mint is a branch of the US Treasury. The first of these articles, published by RT on 30 December 2017, is titled “US gold of

Blockchain Tech Is Transforming The Energy Industry
Blockchain is more than just a buzzword. It truly has the potential to turn entire industries on their heads. In many ways, the energy sector has been slow to adopt this new tech, but things are finally beginning to change. As ‘Big Energy’ begins to catch up, many market leaders and investors are looking towards blockchain for a more transparent and efficient energy future. Just one of these capabilities would be to enable the energy industry to adopt a peer-to-peer trading model, completely rev

Can Blockchain Bring An End To Corruption
The Roman historian Tacitus once famously quipped “the more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws”. Every year, roughly 2 percent of global GDP is lost to public sector corruption alone – at a hefty $2 trillion this equals to Italy’s GDP. The total cost of corruption stands even higher, at 4-5 percent of global GDP. Countries across all continents lose substantial parts of their budgets to corruption. Some African nations see up to a third of their budgets go down the corruption drain. A

Michael Ballanger: CME 'Fiat Police' Arrive Right on Schedule
There are occasions in my life where being correct in a trade or a forecast or an event absolutely fails to excite me. Like predicting the death of a pet or the failure of a business, there is absolutely no joy in waking up to the realization that one's analytical abilities were put to the test and prevailed. In December 2015, I made one of the best calls of my career when I announced the terminus of the 2011-2015 Great Bear Market in Gold at $1,045, but what followed was neither the clinking
