Chinese Physical Gold Investment Demand Surges While Americans Pile Into Stock and Crypto Bubbles
Chinese demand for physical gold investment surged in the first three-quarters of 2017 while Americans ditched the shiny yellow metal for increased bets in the crypto mania and stock market bubble market.  Even though China’s Hang Seng Stock Market outperformed the Dow Jones Index last year, Chinese citizens purchased the most gold bar and coin products Q1-Q3 2017 since the same period in 2013, when they took advantage of huge gold market price selloff.According to the World Gold Council, Chines

How The West Has Been Selling Gold Into A Black Hole 
In December 2016 Chinese wholesale gold demand, measured by withdrawals from the vaults of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE), accounted for 196 tonnes, down 9 % from November.

Stewart Dougherty: 'Exchange for physicals' erase government trades that rig gold price
Financial writer Stewart Dougherty argues today that the supposedly "emergency" procedure in the New York Commodities Exchange's gold futures market, "exchange for physicals," is part of a mechanism that governments use to vaporize contracts created by their own trading that aims to keep the gold price in a tight channel. Dougherty writes that this is why, while "the enormous gold futures trading volume in New York and London would by now almost certainly have produced delivery failures if they

Gold EFPs: Absolute Proof that the Paper Gold Price is a Fraud 
In recent months, the issuance of gold Exchange for Physical (EFP) contracts has surged. EFPs convert a physically deliverable Comex gold contract into an LBMA or LME contract supposedly deliverable at a later date ex London and/or Hong Kong. As an incentive for Comex contract holders to accept EFPs, a cash bonus reportedly is paid. EFPs in silver are also being issued in vast quantities, but we will focus on gold for brevity.Most gold market observers believe that EFPs are a Comex gimmick desig

Why gold has a role in every portfolio
Some investors are averse to gold because, as Warren Buffett argues, it is an unproductive asset. Whereas equities and property can be useful and provide a return, gold “doesn’t do anything but sit there” and consequently has little inherent value, from Buffett’s point of view. The World Gold Council, however, says investment demand for gold exceeded 1,500 tonnes in 2016. As well as being the second-best year on record for inflows to gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs), sales of coins and bars als

THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

World Gold Council plans another ETF
From ETF.com, New York Monday, December 4, 2017 The World Gold Council has filed for a new physical gold ETF. The Gold Trust will be very similar to the $35 billion SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the world's largest gold fund, but with key differences. At first glance, the fund looks like it will go head to head with GLD, but maybe not. It seems unlikely the World Gold Council would want to cannibalize a successful existing product that already has its backing. The filing is actually quite vague, with a

Silver Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The silver miners’ stocks have really languished this year, grinding sideways to lower for months on end.  This vexing consolidation has fueled near-universal bearishness, leaving silver stocks deeply out of favor.  But once a quarter when earnings season arrives, hard fundamentals pierce the obscuring veil of popular sentiment.  The silver miners’ recently-reported Q3’17 results reveal today’s silver prices remain profitable.
