Supply Crunch Or Oil Glut: Investment Banks Can't Agree
In recent years, U.S. shale has thrown in another unknown in the mix of factors driving the price of oil. This year, shale output forecasts combine with OPEC's production cuts, geopolitical factors, and unexpected outages to further complicate supply/demand and oil price forecasts by Wall Street's major investment banks. The biggest banks remain bullish on oil prices, expecting moderate price gains by the end of the year, even after last month WTI prices dropped below $50 for a couple

The Chicago Way Precious Metals Protection Plan
Do you have a plan to protect your precious metals? You should. I’m going to tell you mine today. I’m from Chicago. The second city. The windy city. The city of big shoulders. All of that sounds nice, but if you’ve live in Chicago, the phrase that is always top of mind is not so romantic. You may have heard it before. It’s the phrase that was famously mouthed by Sean Connery in the movie “The Untouchables” when he said “THATS the Chicago Way.” The Chicago Way. If you live in Chicago and don’t kn

Large Speculators and the House of Pain
This week's COT report once again confirms that the Large Speculators are arguably the stupidest group of gold traders in existence. To be certain, as criminality is to the Commercials, brainlessness is to the Large Specs. They are constantly long massive positions at major turning points in gold and silver and are consistently on the wrong side of the trade. Pundits love to refer to the Small Speculators as "dumb retail" or the typically green, blindly optimistic newcomer piling into gold futur

Chris Powell: Golden Rays and Silver Linings
We firmly believe, and have stated a number of times, that gold and silver are the only assets that have the fortitude to stand up to corrupt governments and zombie banks. These two assets, throughout history, have over and over and over again helped the people to gain wealth, to prosper and to truly innovate new technologies. What has happened over the past 100+ years is our wealth, innovation and sovereignty have been slowly stripped away. Central banks are secretly trading all futures markets

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Japanese Banks Plan To Launch A Digital Currency Meant To Kill Off Cash
