If mining stocks did not provide enough leverage, there are still other avenues that offer even more leverage than mining shares. The decision to use leverage in a precious metals purchase is a decision to accept a greater percentage of risk relative to your capital outlay. The

Commodity Prices in US Dollars 1831-1881, Gold @US$20.67 
All prices for all commodities were remarkably stable during this period in which gold was fixed at US$20.67 per ounce by the US Treasury from the time of our country's founding. Gold remained at that price until Congress surrendered its authority to the Federal Reserve in 1913. So, an ounce of gold would have exchanged for 20 silver dollars. This means of commerce would have been accurately termed a "Gold Coin Exchange Standard", and NOT a "gold standard", as the money was in the hands of the p

Is the COMEX Rigged?
The COMEX gold futures market and the London OTC gold market have a joint monopoly on setting the international gold price. This is because these two markets generate the largest ‘gold’ trading volumes and have the highest ‘liquidity’. However, this price setting dominance is despite either of these two markets actually trading physical gold bars. Both markets merely trade different forms of derivatives of gold bars. Overall, the COMEX (which is owned by the CME Group) is even more dominant that

Gold Prices Rise 3rd Day as US Debt Ceiling 'Blocks Fed Rate Hikes', Dollar Falls
GOLD PRICES rose sharply for the third session running in London on Tuesday, gaining as world stock markets fell, commodities rose, and interest rates on major government bonds retreated to new lows for July. Silver stalled at $16.14, unchanged from Monday's jump, while platinum gave back $10 per ounce from yesterday's spike to 1-month highs at $934.50 per ounce. Peaking above $1238, gold priced

TF Metals Report: JPM seems to have stopped stacking Comex metal
JPMorganChase & Co. seems to have gotten out of the Comex gold and silver markets in recent weeks, after accumulating huge stocks of both monetary metals, the TF Metals Report asserts today. The TF Metals Report wonders if this change has resulted from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's starting to enforce position limit rules against the bank, or if the bank has decided that it now has enough gold and silver to allow their prices to rise. Of course since JPM's commodity chief, Blyt

Silver Doubles Gold Price Gain After Comex Speculators Turn 'Net Bearish', Bond Yields Retreat Before ECB, BoJ Decisions
GOLD PRICE gains of 0.5% were doubled by silver bullion in London trade Monday as world stock markets stalled at new all-time highs and major government bond prices rose, pushing longer-term interest rates down. This week brings key policy decisions from the Bank of Japan and European Central Bank – both due Thursday and both currently holding deposit rates below zero with record-high quantities of new QE bond-buying each month.

National Debt Too High, Silver Price Too Low - Gary Christenson
Silver currently sells around $16, which would be sensible if the U.S. national debt was much less than its current $20 trillion. Given the massive national debt and 100 years of experience, silver prices could easily be double or triple their current prices, and far higher in a panic. WHY? Examine over a century of official national debt data graphed on a log scale. Official debt in 1913 was $3 billion. Since then it has risen 8% to 9% every year to reach $20 trillion or $20,000 billion. D

BLS Reports Net Negative Inflation for 5 Months: Anyone Believe That?
Today the BLS reported the CPI was flat. The Econoday consensus was for a 0.1% rise. Over the last five months, the CPI is -0.1%. Over the last four months, the CPI is -0.2%. In what is one of the very weakest 4-month stretch in 60 years of records, core consumer prices could manage only a 0.1 percent increase in June. This is the third straight 0.1 percent showing for the core (ex food & energy) that was preceded by the very rare 0.1 percent decline in March. Total prices were unchanged in the

The Metal of Hope 
In history gold alone has been the money of Kings. However, throughout most of recorded time there has been a metal far more important to the average man than gold. In the ancient of days it was silver alone that could provide the means for a slave to save and eventually purchase his freedom which is why silver became referred to as the Metal of Hope.

The logic of a modern gold standard 
In last week’s Insight, I analysed the current geopolitical situation and concluded that it was now in the interest of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation to break from the US dollar completely, by establishing a new monetary and banking systemi. By linking the yuan and rouble to gold, the SCO’s principal currencies would be insulated from manipulation by means of dollar currency rates, and their use as a weapon to undermine the Sino-Russian partnership. This article addresses some of the prac

Gold Bullion 'Targets $80 Drop' as GLD Shrinks, SLV Grows on Silver's 16-Month Price Lows
GOLD BULLION on Tuesday halved last night's $10 per ounce recovery from 4-month lows against a rallying US Dollar, trading at $1210 as major government bond prices fell again, pushing up longer-term interest rates. Commodities reversed yesterday's gains as European stock markets slipped, but Asian equities ended Tuesday higher after provisional data said new machine-tool orders in Japan jumped 31% in June from the same month last year.

Putting the Latest Silver Crash Under a Lens 
On Thursday, July 6, in the late afternoon (as reckoned in Arizona), the price of silver crashed. The move was very brief, but very intense. The price hit a low under $14.40 before recovering to around $15.80 which is about 20 cents lower than where it started. Buyers of silver are rejoicing. They can now get more money (silver, like gold, is money) in exchange for their dollars than before. However, as we see from the reactions in the community, there were few buyers. Cries of woe are heard eve

Silver Fundamentals Vs. The Base Metal Bubble Part ll-Silver Undervalued Against Everything Now!
Yesterday, we learned that Donald Trump Jr. was allegedly involved in secret meetings with a Russian lawyer last year, in an alleged attempt to obtain anti-Hillary information.  This, as Trump’s snot-nosed, silver spoon son-in-law, Jared Kushner – a mere 36 years old – was collaborating with Qatarian sheiks whilst Saudi Arabia “coincidentally” declared economic war on it – under the ultimate “pot calling the kettle black” insinuation that Qatar funds terrorism.  To which, I can only say, how rid

  Gold Prices Rally 1.5, 'Long Liquidation Done' But Investors 'Uninterested' as SLV Grows Again
GOLD PRICES extended their recovery to 1.5% from this week's new 3.5-month low against a falling US Dollar on Wednesday, rising to $1225 per ounce ahead of US Fed chair Janet Yellen's semi-annual testimony on interest-rate and QE policy to Congress. Asian and European stock markets flipped yesterday's action to fall and rise respectively, while bond prices and commodities also rose. Silver rose

Bitcoin Tests Retracement
The CFTC is moving to grant another license to a cryptocurrency derivative exchange. On Business Insider, we read: While most federal regulators in the US have taken a sluggish approach to cryptocurrencies, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has been an exception. In September 2015, the body designated cryptocurrencies as commodities, rather than currencies. Then, in May 2016, it gave TeraExchange, a cryptocurrency clearing platform, full authorization to trade digital currency deri

Has Peak Silver Arrived?
Whilst a lot of precious metals investors are solely focusing on gold, we would almost forget about silver, also called ‘the poor man’s gold’ although things are changing fast on this market as well. 2016 was the first year in more than a decade wherein the primary silver production (coming from mines either as a main product or a by-product credit) decreased. After seeing a total silver production of approximately 668 million ounces in 2007 increasing to 891 million ounces in 2015, we saw a (

Pirates, Arbitrage, and the Silver Flash Crash - Viking Analytics
One of the quotes that guides my investment and trading philosophy is attributed to Benjamin Graham: In the short run, the market is a voting machine. In the long run, it is a weighing machine. - Benjamin Graham With this quote in mind, I look for occasions when commodities and stocks have diverged from fundamental value, and seek to profit from that divergence. Often, the divergences can last longer than anyone might expect. But, that is a topic for another article. In this article,

LATEST CARTEL BLITZKREIG, FABRICATED “JOBS” REPORT SETTING THE STAGE FOR SIGNIFICANT PRECIOUS METAL SHORTAGE
As it’s still 1:30 AM MST, I’ll reserve judgement on the title, and principal theme, of today’s article until after the June NFP jobs report five hours from now.  Given yesterday’s miserable June ADP employment report – featuring a big “miss” versus expectations, ZERO manufacturing job growth, and a significant downward revision of May’s numbers; coupled with the nearly across-the-board declines in June economic “hard data” to date, there’s a good chance the June NFP report will be disappointing
