The Way Chicago “Works”: Graft, Corruption, Political Connections, Bribes, Unions
Those who wish to understand how things work in Chicago need read a single article that ties everything together: Teamsters boss indicted on charges of extorting $100,000 from a local business. A politically connected Teamsters union boss was indicted Wednesday on federal charges alleging he extorted $100,000 in cash from a local business. John Coli Sr., considered one the union’s most powerful figures nationally, was charged with threatening work stoppages and other labor unrest unless he was g

New LME gold contract sees lackluster launch
An attempt by the London Metal Exchange and a group of banks including Goldman Sachs to grab a chunk of London's $5 trillion-a-year gold market through a new futures contract got off to a lacklustre start today. A total of $56 million worth of the yellow metal changed hands on the launch day, compared with $24 billion in the most active Comex gold futures contract in the United States, as the London Metals Exchange has yet to attract the big bullion banks JPMorgan and HSBC. The two banks are sup

How The Fed Really Broke Gold in 2012, along with Everything Else
Keeping it Simple - Soren K. Group authors Vince Lanci, "Fay Dress", and "Bon Scott" for We Can't Know The title implies we can know without a doubt why Gold is dead since 2011. The reasons for Gold's demise cannot be known through deductive methods. To do that we need facts. To get facts we need Government transparency. That isn't happening. So we are left  again with subjective probability which is inductive in nature and leads one to seek facts to confirm a thesis for deductiv

Silver Flash Smash was a 'Glitch'- SKG Comment
Last night, unofficial comments from sources were framing the flash crash event as  a 'glitch'  and  they were  ' all over' solving it. This implies there was no person or fat fingered banker spoofing the market. It also implies that the "problem" was electronic. Indeed we think it was. But electronic in what way?

'Fat Finger' Hits Comex Silver Price as London OTC Hits 18-Year High, LME Tries Gold Futures Again
TRADING in Comex silver futures contracts was hit Friday by what dealers and analysts called a 'fat finger' error, knocking the metal down more than $1 per ounce to a sudden 15-month low at the start of Japanese hours. A trade worth some $450 million in September and December silver futures saw those contracts plunge over 11%, immediately jumping back above $15.80 and rallying further as physical trading opened in London's wholesale market.

Rethinking the Fed: More Tightening than Priced In? Next Financial Crisis Coming Up?
Time and time again, the Fed sows seeds of the next financial crisis in actions it takes to mitigate the previous financial crisis that it caused. Have we reached that point yet? The Guardian reports Central Banks Raise Alarm Over New Crash After Steep Rise in Lending. Soaring stock markets, which have become detached from underlying values, were another sign that unjustified exuberance had replaced last year’s overly pessimistic reaction to political events such as the US election and the UK’

How many Silver Bars are in the LBMA Vaults in London?
Sometime in the coming days, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) plans to begin publishing gold and silver vault holding totals covering the network of commercial precious vault operators in London that fall under its remit. This follows an announcement made by the LBMA on 8 May. There are seven commercial vault operators (custodians) in the LBMA custodian vault network namely, HSBC, JP Morgan, Brinks, Malca Amit, ICBC Standard Bank, Loomis (formerly Viamat), and G4S. Note that ICBC Sta

  The London Gold Market: What’s behind the smoke and mirrors? 
In our last two major research pieces we have been looking at the working parts of the gold market and where the heart of it lies. We’re trying to help investors understand where gold prices are really set. Today we take a look at the London gold market, an older and arguably larger market than COMEX. A couple of weeks ago we explained how we had ‘found that the COMEX was still the beating heart of the gold market.’ Since this research piece, Bron Sucheki, whose work featured in our last piece,

Ronan Manly: How many silver bars are in the LBMA vaults in London?
Monetary metals researcher Ronan Manly reports today that the London Bullion Market Association is expected to announce soon just how much silver is held in its members' vaults in London, which presumably will bring some transparency to an exceedingly opaque market, in which claims to the metal greatly surpass the amount of metal supporting them. Manly's analysis is headlined "How Many Silver Bars Are in the LBMA Vaults in London?" and it's posted at Bullion Star here:

Gold Bullion Ends June at January Low vs Falling Dollar, 'Supportive' Asian Demand 'Will Weaken'
GOLD BULLION slipped again overnight Friday against a falling US Dollar, heading for the lowest monthly finish since January in London's wholesale trade while world stock markets rallied from yesterday's sell-off and bond prices also stabilized. Commodities extended their bounce in Dollar terms, taking Brent crude oil further above $47 per barrel – some 6% above mid-June's 7-month low – but silver and platinum prices held lower for

The mystery of the Gold Certificates 
How many of these $100,000 Gold Certificates were issued by our Treasury exclusively for the private Federal Reserve banking cartel following the confiscation of this gold from the people? How many have already been redeemed for our Treasury gold bullion? Or, are these certificate claims being double counted by both Treasury and the Fed? Since they are redeemable in "$100,000 in Gold" does that

Stocks, Bonds, Euro, and Gold Go Up, Report 4 June, 2017
The jobs report was disappointing. The prices of gold, and even more so silver, took off. In three hours, they gained $18 and 39 cents. Before we try to read into the connection, it is worth pausing to consider how another market responded. We don’t often discuss the stock market (and we have not been calling for an imminent stock market collapse as many others have). The initial reaction in the US equities market (futures, as this was before the opening bell) was down. But it was muted, and the

Warning: Startup Societies are Disrupting Government
Via The Daily Bell Startup societies are disrupting the industry called government. New methods of governance are being experimented with that promise to make the old dinosaurs of social control go extinct. When new governments are formed, people can vote with their feet for the best style of governance. If people want to join a commune, they can go right ahead, but they won’t be able to force others into the mix with them. That means the people who want to innovate, start a business, create wea

GOLD – The Ultimate Buy and Hold 
Last night, I was telling my wife of the frustration the past five years has wrought on Precious Metal holders – or, as they call them in the Bitcoin world, “hoddlers.”  It’s been far worse, and longer, in the “paper PM investment” world – as the Cartel has not only annihilated mining shares, but the mining industry as well; as not only have reserves been decimated, whilst mine production has – perhaps, permanently – peaked; but share counts and debt burdens have exploded, limiting shares’ upsid

The Daily Market Report: Gold Extends to the Upside as Dollar Slides
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/05-31-17 Gold is extending to the upside, establishing new 5-week highs above yesterday’s high at 1270.45. The yellow metal is being underpinned by a myriad of fundamentals that are stimulating safe-haven interest, as well as a weaker dollar. The dollar index has given back nearly all of its recent gains, leaving last week’s low at 96.80 vulnerable to a retest. In the bigger picture, the greenback has retraced all of its post-election gains that were attributed to hopes that
