Bitcoin or British Pound ‘Pretty Much Failed’ As Currency
– Bitcoin has ‘pretty much failed’ as a currency says Bank of England Carney– Bitcoin is neither a store of value nor a useful way to buy things – BOE’s Carney– Project fear against crypto-currencies or an out of control investing bubble?– Bitcoin will likely recover in value but is speculative and not for widows and orphans– British pound has been a terrible store of value – unlike gold– Pound collapsed 30% in 2016 and down 11.5% per annum versus gold in last 15 years– Fiat currency experiment

Irredeemable Currency De-tooths Savers
Arbitrary Interest Rates In the past few weeks, we have argued that interest rates will not rise. We have made our arguments based on observable cases of soft credit demand that falls with rising rates, and analysis of the incentives on creditors and debtors. Ours is a case that rates can’t go up much, for long, because demand for credit won’t chase rates up. In the postwar period up to 1981, borrowers chased rates all the way up the moon. But not since then. Now, we want to make a theoretical a

The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

Bitcoin Was Only The Beginning…
Upset that you missed the boat on the bitcoin craze last year? Millionaires were minted overnight as bitcoin returned 1,700 percent in 2017, only to see prices crash by more than half since December. The bubble seems to have popped, and not everyone got out in time. While we may be past the peak temporarily, the cryptocurrency trend is just getting started, and investor enthusiasm is still growing by the day. (Click to enlarge)While the bitcoin investment boat may have already set sail, it’s lik

Storing and Hiding Your Gold at Home
Where, exactly, should you store your gold at home?You instinctively know that gold is valuable and understand it must be stored safely. You probably also realize that gold coins and bars come with no replacement policy: if you lose them, they’re gone for good. No claim check to redeem.This makes your home storage plan critical.This guide provides hiding tips, the pros and cons of alarms and safes, backyard burial advice, the home storage golden rule, and why insuring your metal is probably not

The Right Question…
Last week I mentioned that my grandson Josh (Andy’s boy) was accepted at McGill University in Montreal, the University of Indiana’s business school and the University of Michigan.  He is interested in pursuing a degree in business and is taking all the requisite (advanced) classes in economics. He called me yesterday and asked me, “Which Fed Policy would be better, Quantitative Easing or Tapering and what can be done to make things better?”  Geese Louise!  When I was his age the only question I

Should We Use Probability in Economics
Modern economics in addition to sophisticated mathematics also employs probability distributions. What is probability? The probability of an event is the proportion of times the event happens out of a large number of trials.For instance, the probability of obtaining heads when a coin is tossed is 0.5. This does not mean that when a coin is tossed 10 times, five heads are always obtained.However, if the experiment is repeated a large number of times then it is likely that 50% will be obtained. Th

Start of Chinese New Year Holiday See Gold Bullion Whip on US Inflation Data, Turkey Threatens 'Ottoman Slap'
GOLD BULLION prices fell as the Dollar jumped on stronger-than-expected US inflation data Wednesday, only to recover the drop as fixed-income bond prices fell, pushing longer-term interest rates higher once more. World stock markets also sank and then rallied on the news, with Germany's Dax regaining a previous 1.0% loss by mid-afternoon in Frankfurt. Gold priced in non-US currencies also spiked

Is This The No.1 Blockchain Stock For 2018
Cryptocurrencies are minting new millionaires faster than any other asset class in history have. Period. Blockchain, the backbone of cryptocurrency and expected to become the biggest market disrupter ever, is creating incredible wealth for some investors and generating massive returns. A $1,000 investment in Bitcoin in 2010 would have earned you $35 million by mid-2017, although that would have dropped back a bit since then. FOMO (fear of missing out) is an epidemic at this point, but most inves

US Stock Market, Precious Metals and the Macro Backdrop
US Stock MarketWe will update global markets as well as the macro situation in NFTRH 486, but for this article I’d like to focus on the US stock market.Let’s cut to the chase; the markets have finally fallen in line for those of us who manage markets, as opposed to dollar cost average into them through a money manager and then go about life, blissfully unaware. Much like during the 2015-2016 period, when the media were all but demanding investors go one way when the right way was the opposite (f

Crypto Crackdown: Bitcoin is a “Combination of Bubble, Ponzi Scheme, Environmental Disaster”
“If authorities do not act preemptively, cryptocurrencies could become more interconnected with the main financial system and become a threat to financial stability.” The official crackdown on the entire cryptocurrency space got a new and broader framework from Agustín Carstens, General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and former governor of the Bank of Mexico. In a lecture in Frankfurt on Tuesday, he let fly some real zingers interspersed with indications of what is to co

Kookaburra bullion special marks Year of the Dog
The Perth Mint has issued a special Australian Kookaburra bullion coin in celebration of the forthcoming Year of the Dog. Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the new release features the 2018 Kookaburra’s eye-catching reverse design with the addition of a privy mark representation of a labrador retriever. This is the sixth Australian Kookaburra variant incorporating a lunar privy mark. First seen in 2012 with a dragon privy, the sequence has proved popular with four of the preceding coins so

CFTC / SEC Hearing on Cryptocurrencies Mostly Bullish
I wasn’t expecting that much open-mindedness from a government institution. The Committee on Banking Housing and Urban Affairs met this morning to conduct a hearing entitled, Virtual Currencies: The Oversight Role of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The witnesses were Jay Clayton, Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); and Christopher Giancarlo, Chairman, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The co

Gold Prices Steady Ex-Dollar Amid 'Correction, Not Crash' in World Stocks, 2017 Coin and Bar Demand Weakest Since '09
GOLD PRICES fell $10 per ounce against a resurgent US Dollar on Tuesday in London, erasing this week's earlier gain as world stock market sank for a third session running. Solid gold trading in Shanghai – where the Chinese stock market today sank over 3% – saw global quotes rise to $1345, with Tuesday's benchmark price in the No.1 consumer nation edging higher in Yuan terms.

From the Heart: Own Precious Metals
One of the things from which I occasionally enjoy a good chuckle is the insecurity displayed by bloggers or newsletter writers who are constantly in need of positive reinforcement derived by reminding readers of their "incredible market calls." It is always readily-predictable because just before they ask you to buy something (like a subscription), they post a link to emphasize their brilliance with phrases like "as you know" or "back in 2017" providing breathtaking introductions to their most r

Massive Russian Silver Hoard
This story first surfaced a couple of weeks ago and now Mike Maloney has produced a video discussing all the Russian gold and how the U.S. hasn’t audited Ft. Knox or FRBNY vaults in multiple decades while Russia is not only providing a birds-eye view of their gold and silver reserves they give an idea of how all this money is accounted. If you watch the vide below some of the images give a close up shot of the cages where the gold is stored with various serial numbers and vault numbers. One coul

Your Weight in Gold
The traditional phrase “worth your weight in gold” has been used since Roman times, and is a well-known saying signifying that someone or something is very valuable, helpful, or to be treasured. But taken literally, what ‘value’ would a person be worth if they were worth their own weight in gold? For a given gold price, the answer not surprisingly depends on the person’s weight, so a more suitable and relevant question might be what value would an average person be worth if they were worth their

What makes gold good money
People say that gold is rare this is why it makes good money. To make an analogy to the porridge in Goldilocks, the temperature could not be too cold or too hot. If gold were too common, or too rare, it would not work as money. Think of sand, which is too common, or blue diamonds which are too rare (and diamonds would not work as money anyway. Rather than focusing on its rarity, let’s look at extracting it. It has generally held true that the cost to mine an ounce of gold was around one ounce of

Radical Gold Underinvestment 4
Global investors are radically underinvested in gold today.  Years of relentless stock-market rallying to endless new record highs have left this classic alternative investment deeply out of favor.  But this gold-demand ebb is ending.  The same central banks that fueled these extreme stock markets through epic easing are reversing to massive and unprecedented tightening.  As stocks roll over, gold investment will return. Gold is a unique asset class established ove
