Governments will smash cryptos whenever they want, von Greyerz tells KWN
7p ET Sunday, June 18, 2017 Swiss gold fund manager Egon von Greyerz today tells King World News that governments will easily smash cryptocurrencies any time they want to and gold and silver eventually will escape price suppression by governments and central banks and begin to reflect the vast inflation of the money supply. As for when, von Greyerz doesn't say. GATA doesn't know when either, only that the World Gold Council and the gold and silver mining industry will do nothing to hasten the d

GOLD PRICES jumped to new 7-week highs at $1291 per ounce on Tuesday, again testing the 6-year downtrend line in place since the metal's 2011 record highs as Western stock markets fell with longer-term interest rates. After the ISM Prices Paid measure of inflation in manufacturing costs "tanked" in Friday's report for May, 10-year US Treasury yields today fell again to post-Trump election lows of 2.15%.

Silver Short-Squeeze Potential
Silver has suffered a lackluster year so far, really lagging gold’s upleg.  Sentiment is still reeling following silver’s crushing selloff from mid-April to mid-May.  But that plunge was largely driven by extreme silver-futures selling by speculators, including a blistering spike in short selling.  The resulting excessive shorts have left silver with excellent near-term potential for a short squeeze, which would catapult it rapidly higher. Technically, silver ultim

The World Gold Council’s gold market analysis is useless
A few weeks ago the World Gold Council (WGC) published its “Gold Demand Trends” report for the first quarter of 2017. These reports actually provide no information about gold demand and in my opinion are useless. In fact, they are worse than useless because they are misleading. It is axiomatic that at any given time the total demand for gold equals the total supply of gold, which, in turn, equals the total aboveground gold inventory. The total aboveground gold inventory is somewhere between 150K

The Golden Revolution, Revisited
Back in 2012 John Wiley and Sons published my first book, The Golden Revolution, the core thesis of which was that a longer-term consequence of the global financial crisis of 2008 would be the remonetization of gold. This would occur initially at the international level, that is, as a mean to settle accumulated international imbalances in trade and cross-border investment. The book then also explored how this might come about, what the implications were for the price of gold and for the financia

The junior gold miners’ stocks suffered a serious thrashing between mid-April and early May.  Relentless heavy selling blasted many back down near deep mid-December lows, leaving sentiment in tatters.  But traders distracted by weak technicals need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball.  The gold juniors just finished their Q1 earnings season, which was solid.  Their low stock prices are disconnected from reality.

Precious Metals Fundamentals: The Numbers Don’t Lie, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Recent commentaries which have discussed precious metals have focused on the precious metals “market” – meaning the paper-trading that the bankers and Corporate media call “a market”. Sophisticated readers understand that this fantasy world has almost nothing to do with the real market for gold and silver physical metal. As we learned from Jeffrey Christian in 2010 (in an admission which he would love to take back), in this world of fraud, only 1% of “gold” and “silver” trading is actual m
