Extremes To The Extreme
It’s just one day before the Ides of March; when not one, not two, but three potentially explosive “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” factors are “scheduled” to occur.  During which, Andrew Maguire claims the wholesale physical gold market – where the world’s largest buyers, like Central banks and sovereign funds, play – has never been tighter; with massive unseen buy orders at the $1,200/oz level.  Will this in fact “break” the paper market in the next few months, as he anticipates?  I guess

Why Trump's Syria 'Surge' Will Fail
Last week President Trump significantly escalated the US military presence in Syria, sending some 400 Marines to the ISIS-controlled Raqqa, and several dozen Army Rangers to the contested area around Manbij. According to press reports he will also station some 2,500 more US troops in Kuwait to be used as he wishes in Iraq and Syria. Not only is it illegal under international law to send troops into another country without permission, it is also against US law for President Trump to t

Erdogan Accuses Germany of Nazi Practices Over Canceled Appearances: When Will the Migration Agreement Blow Up?
The already strained relationship between Germany and Turkey took another step for the worse when Germany canceled appearances of two of Turkey’s ministers. In response, Erdogan Accused Germany of Nazi Practices. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan likened Germany’s cancellation of public appearances by two of his ministers to Nazi practices, aggravating frictions that had already flared over Turkey’s human rights record. Germany’s decision has “nothing to do with democracy,” Erdogan said at

Western Central Banks have a real knack for timing the sale of their gold reserves. They are absolute experts when it comes to picking the bottom of the gold market. Central banks in the UK, Switzerland and Norway, to mention a few, timed their sales to perfection. The only problem is that they all sold at the absolute bottom between 1999 and 2004. That was of course the time to buy gold and not to sell. But the Finance ministers in charge of Western economies have no understanding of economics.

The Return of Stagflation - Gary Christenson
Steve St. Angelo wrote an insightful article relating the silver to gold ratio to the S&P 500 Index. I encourage you to read his articles and analysis. My commentary on the silver to gold ratio: The following graph shows the SI/GC ratio versus the S&P500 index beginning in August 1971 when President Nixon severed the final gold backing of the US dollar. Currency in circulation, debt, consumer cost of living, and most prices including gold, silver, crude oil, and the S&P rose in devalued dol

Russia Gold Buying Is Back – Buys One Million Ounces In January
Russia gold buying returned in January with the Russian central bank buying a very large 1 million ounces or 37 metric tonnes of gold bullion. The increase in the gold reserves came after Russia did not buy a single ounce in December – a move seen as potentially a signal or an olive branch to the U.S. and the incoming Trump administration. It also came after Russia had accelerated its gold buying in the final months of the Obama Presidency. October 2016 saw an increase of 1.3 million ounces or

Erdogan Seeks Powers to Stay in Office Until 2029: Expect Perpetual State of Emergency
Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s carefully planned move to become legal dictator of Turkey is in its final stages. In the wake of a foiled coup, Erdogan removed or imprisoned every judge not on his side, shut down all opposition newspapers, and jailed all of his political opponents. After his hand-picked court approved the changes Erdogan wanted, all that remains is a Public Referendum which Erdogan will win simply because he gets to count the votes. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has begun a final push to increas

Turkey, ‘Axis of Gold’ and the End of US Dollar Hegemony
Trkey’s citizens have long had an affinity to hold physical gold. It is rarely seen as an investment, few look at it as something that they will receive a return on. Instead it is a necessity and something that families hold for wealth preservation and as insurance.

A Misery Index was first constructed by economist Art Okun as a way to provide President Lyndon Johnson with a snapshot of the economy.  The original Misery Index was just a simple sum of a nation’s annual inflation rate and its unemployment rate.

  Good News: Washington Frozen Out of Syria Peace Plan 
As the US mainstream media obsessed last week about Russia's supposed "hacking" of the US elections and President Obama's final round of Russia sanctions in response, something very important was taking place under the media radar. As a result of a meeting between foreign ministers of Russia, Iran, and Turkey last month, a ceasefire in Syria has been worked out and is being implemented. So far it appears to be holding, and after nearly six years of horrible warfare the peop
