Merry Christmas to You—Bullion Premiums at Multi-Year Lows
There’s nothing like a bargain during the holidays. And here’s an unexpected one even I was surprised to see…It’s not easy to dig up industry-wide data on coin and bar premiums. To do it manually is incredibly time-consuming and then would be out of date as soon as you published it, since premiums always fluctuate.But we’ve snagged both wholesale and retail data from a couple sources. And there’s a very clear message from these statistics: gold bullion is on the SALE rack…Wholesale Prices: Plung

Holding On for Dear Life
From Slope of Hope: Checking the Bitcoin chart has, for me, become kind of like watching a huge auto wreck. Even though I have nothing to do with it, I just can't stop looking. In the past 24 hours, three milestones have fallen away - - $13,000, then $14,000, and $15,000. Let's just say $BTC owners have had a not-too-awful year (unless they sold). And the experts have been offering up superb advice the entire way (this is from January 2014): I guess if the experts were asked for a place as a

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

Axel Merk, Merk Investments December 7, 2017  Follow @AxelMerk Tweet With the stock market and Bitcoin reaching all-time highs, what can possible go wrong? In offering my thoughts on 2018, I see my role in reminding investors to stress test their portfolios. Is your portfolio built of straw, sticks or brick? First, let me allege many investors have portfolios built of straw and sticks rather than brick. How do I kn

Gold Stocks Break, Gold to Follow
We’ve been persistently bearish on precious metals since September and that has annoyed our readers. The weak price action, negative divergences and bearish fundamentals are too much to currently overcome for the time being. The gold stocks finally cracked this week and have lost another 7%-8% in only the past seven trading sessions. Silver and Gold denominated in foreign currencies have joined the breakdown. Gold meanwhile has not broken down yet but all indications are that it will soon. The c

Precious Metals Breaking Down! 3 Amigos to Abort? 4 Horsemen to Ride?
I am not trying to be a wise guy with the first half of the title (it’s a goof on alarmist media), but if you were not bear biased or outright bearish on the gold sector’s daily and weekly technicals, and its macro and sector fundamentals by now all you have left are the alarmist headlines now telling us about H&S breakdowns, HUI/Gold ratio bearishness and whatever else is going on out there in media large and small to scare the lowly gold bug.As noted in an NFTRH update last night…It’s hard to

Is Volume/Breadth Aligned With Bullish Case?
An August 2016 analysis outlined a long-term bullish signal for stocks that has occurred only ten other times in the last thirty-five years. If we fast forward to December 2017, is market breadth/volume aligning with or contradicting bullish data we have in hand? The chart below shows up/down volume (1996-2010) for the NYSE Composite Stock Index, along with its 50-week moving average (thick blue line). Notice how all-things-being equal, the probability of bad things happening increases when

Rig For Stormy Weather - Gary Christenson
What storm? The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high. Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! I Doubt It! Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world? If so,

Have US Treasury Yields Bottomed? Are You Sure?
The consensus view is the Fed will hike 3-4 times in 2018 and that treasury yields long ago bottomed. Agree? I don't.US Treasury Yields 1998-Present The above chart suggests it is far too premature to believe that long-term yields have bottomed. US Treasury Yields 5-year Duration and Under 1998-Present Other than zero-bound 3-month treasuries, it is difficult to present a clear technical case that even short-term rates have bottomed. And given that a huge percentage of the world's bonds trade

Is Tax "Reform" Good for the US Dollar? How About Gold?
Let's investigate what happened after the last 3 major tax reforms. Another "reform" is on deck.I picked up this idea from Holger Zschaepitz, @Schuldensuehner, who made the following Tweet, posting a chart from Bloomberg. In the following chart, I add a key piece of legislation that someone inadvertently overlooked.

2018 Will Be When Central Bank Policy Crashes Into the Wall
The bubble in sovereign bonds is looking dangerously close to popping. And ironically, what could burst it is the very thing Central Banks have been pursuing aggressively for the last 9 years: inflation. As I explain in my bestselling book The Everything Bubble, Treasury yields adjust to account for inflation. The relationship is not perfect as bonds are also priced based on economic activity. However, the fact remains, if the rate of inflation spikes, Treasury yields rise as well to account for

You're Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming 
I hate to break it to you, but chances are you're just not prepared for what’s coming. Not even close.  Don't take it personally. I'm simply playing the odds. After spending more than a decade warning people all over the world about the futility of pursuing infinite exponential economic growth on a finite planet, I can tell you this: very few are even aware of the nature of our predicament. An even smaller subset is either physically or financially ready for the sort of future barreling down on

Hyperinflation: Much Talked About, Little Understood
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. Professor Liping He from Beijing Normal University has produced a most comprehensive and useful scholarly treatment of world hyperinflation. It is hot off the press. This is a welcomed addition to the literature. Indeed, Hyperinflation: A World History is destined to become a standard reference on the topic. My basis for this judgment rests on my own travails in grappling with the literature and data

The True Meaning of Bitcoin's 'Success'
In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian's rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to ful

Monetary update for the dollar
A dispassionate look at the quantities and flows of fiat dollars tells us much about the current state of the US economy, and therefore prospects for the dollar itself.This is a starting point for understanding the dynamics likely to affect the dollar’s purchasing power after the next credit-induced crisis, which are now beginning to clarify. That is the purpose of this article, which starts by updating the most recent developments in the quantity of fiat money (FMQ), the greatest of all monetar
