  The Myth of the Gold Supply Deficit 
Analyses based on annual supply and demand of gold appear on a daily basis, whether posted to gold web sites or in the financial media, many of them by the most respected analysts of gold mining shares. These articles typically show an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that there is a gold supply deficit. From there, the conclusion follows that a much higher gold price is required in order to bring supply and demand into balance.

A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

Three Levels of Survival Skills 
The situations in which survival skills become desirable or even necessary cover a wide range of possibilities. For example, if you are in what is euphemistically referred to as the "Golden Years," and your own government decides to manipulate interest rates to the point that the fixed income you rely on to survive falls into negative territory, survival skills will quickly come in handy, but survival skills of a different sort than, say, those required to stay afloat in a failed economy such as Zimbabwe. On that front, we'll hear from a Zimbabwean a bit further on.

  Gold Is 'Money' Because It Is Plentiful, Not Because It Is Scarce 
Gold, and its brother silver, have always been the basis of money, back to the beginnings of “money,” in the late fourth millennium B.C. Already by 2000 B.C., gold and silver had been “money” for over a thousand years–the entire history of “civilization” on this planet. Gold was still the basis of money in the 1960s, in an unbroken line stretching back to the beginnings of history. One somewhat counterintuitive requirement for “money” is that it does not have a utilitarian purpose; at least, no

  Above-ground Gold Stock - How Much Is There and Why Does it Matter 
To understand the price of gold, the relevant supply is the total supply, not the new supply coming to market during the last year, week or month. The supply of gold consists of all of the supply that exists, and the relevant demand is the total demand, not the new demand coming to market during any year. For gold, there is always a large stockpile, and it never gets smaller. The vast majority of all the gold mined throughout human history still exists and is held either in bars, coins, or jewel

Basic Gold Market Facts 
Here are ten basic gold-market realities that are either unknown or ignored by many gold 'experts'.1. Supply always equals demand, with the price changing to maintain the equivalence. In this respect the gold market is no different from any other market that clears, but it's incredible how often comments like "demand is increasing relative to supply" appear in gold-related articles.2. The supply of gold is the total aboveground gold inventory, which is currently somewhere in the 150K-200K tonne

Gold coins: The Vienna Philharmonic
The Vienna Philharmonic has been minted by the Austrian Mint "Münze Österreich AG" since 1989. After Great Britain, Austria was the second state in Europe to start producing an official gold coin. Until 1991 the coin was minted in one ounce and quarter ounce versions. Due to the great sales success, a tenth-ounce coin was released in 1991, which was followed by a half-ounce in 1994.

Gold Miners’ Q4’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks remain deeply out of favor, trading at prices seen when gold was half or even a quarter of current levels.  So many traders assume this small contrarian sector must be really struggling fundamentally.  But nothing could be farther from the truth!  The major gold miners’ recently-released Q4’17 results prove they are thriving.  Their languishing stock prices are the result of irrational herd sentiment. Four times a year publicly-traded co

Lassonde likes the gold price with central banks rigging the market
Oh, for a journalist who would put a few serious questions to Franco-Nevada Chairman Pierre Lassonde, former chairman of the World Gold Council, when he says, as he told Daniela Cambone of Kitco News this week, that "gold is well-priced" and "where it should be." http://www.kitco.com/news/video/show/BMO-Conference-2018/1869/2018-02-28...
