Silver is a perpetually fascinating commodity. It shares much in common with the golden king of precious metals, yet it is also quite different in so many ways.

Major Supply Shortage: Critical Minerals Igniting Bull Market Mania
Collapsing oil prices are only the beginning as fossil fuels are turning into a historic relic, says Kenneth Ameduri, chief editor of Crush the Street. He discusses two commodities whose demand he expects to skyrocket as the world shifts to cleaner energy. Elon Musk is at the forefront of this movement with his innovations that are turning fossil fuels into a historic relic. Some say oil's true price per barrel with the "supply glut" that exists and the

“The Ultimatum”
Next week, I’ll be on vacation; and plan not to write.  That said, don’t be surprised if I do, as I have a nasty habit of waking up long before anyone else, with a craving to express myself; particularly, with so many PiMBEEB headlines to consider.  Either way, I invite you to visit the Miles Franklin Blog to check out the vast archive of everything I’ve ever published, going back to when I joined the firm in 2011.  Not to mention, to see what Miles Franklin is all about.  No bullion dealer prov

Silver Price Hits 2% Weekly Jump as Stocks Slip, Gold Gains, Investors Spy Platinum 'Valuation'
SILVER PRICES shot higher Friday lunchtime in London, overtaking gold's 1.6% gain for the week in Dollar terms to touch $17.75 per ounce as platinum also rose. Currencies were little changed but commodities rallied after strong European PMI manufacturing surveys contrasted with weaker data from Japan and a 6-month low in US activity. Bond prices rose again,

  ‘Real’ Performance Comparison
Inserted below is a chart that compares the long-term inflation-adjusted (IA) performances of several markets. This chart makes some interesting points, such as: 1) Market volatility increased dramatically in the early-1970s when the current monetary system was introduced. This shows that the generally higher levels of monetary inflation and the larger variations in the rate of monetary inflation that occurred after the official link to gold was abandoned didn’t only affect nominal prices.

Gold Prices 'Challenged' at $1250 Before Trump's Obamacare Vote as Inflation Whacks UK Retail Sales
GOLD PRICES again outpaced other precious metals to set fresh 3-week highs in London wholesale trade Thursday, rising again above $1250 per ounce as world stock markets held flat from this week's slump ahead of US lawmakers voting on President Trump's repeal of Obamacare. With all Democrat Representatives set to vote against the change, keeping the Affordable Care Act in place, "No more than 22 Republicans can vote against the bill if it is to p

Valuing Mining Stocks - In Defense Of Net Asset Value
While browsing the various fundamental evaluations of mining companies made by investors on internet message boards, I have consistently seen two valuation methodologies - the in situ method and the cash flow method - used frequently, while the traditional net asset value (NAV) method used by professionals is neglected or not used at all. The NAV method, I believe, is superior to the other two, and the following is a defense of this valuation technique.

March 23rd-The End Of “Trump-Flation”?
Like the Miles Franklin Blog itself, this week’s articles have focused as much on the quantity of “PM-bullish, everything-else-bearish” events, as the quality.  As frankly, even I have been overwhelmed lately – as the terminal stage of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi races through its cancerous terminal stage, en route to the spectacular, world-changing event it was destined to produce when it was launched on August 15th, 1971.  I.e. when America, and it’s “Demo-publican” Presiden

Gold Prices Hit 3-Week High as 'Trumpflation' Fails Ahead of Obamacare Vote, Silver Platinum Lag
GOLD PRICES hit new 3-week highs in London trade Wednesday, rising above $1247 per ounce as Asian stock markets closed sharply lower and European equities dipped on what pundits and analysts called worries that the 'Trump reflation trade' is fading. Failure to pass tomorrow's vote on the new US President's repeal and replacement of Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act " could imperil tax and spending reforms" Bloomberg quotes "leading

Gold Price Gains, Defies ETF Outflows as Brexit UK Confirms Inflation Jump
GOLD PRICES jumped at the start of New York trade Tuesday, reaching new 2-week highs in London's wholesale market as commodities also rose together with global equities and emerging-market bond prices amid fresh news of growing inflation. Silver and platinum prices also rose sharply as gold hit $1240 per ounce, its highest Dollar value since 2 March. Gaining 1% from last week's fini

A Word From Andy Schectman
For many years, the willingness of the world to accept dollars has been the key to the prosperity in the United States. Think about just how crazy it is that dollars created by the world’s biggest debtor nation, with nothing backing their value but the Government’s ability to tax and print, is accepted as the world’s reserve currency. The illusion of prosperity in the US, for years has been fostered by the grace of our foreign creditors. But it is becoming obvious, that these overseas investors

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?

Miles Franklin, And The Precious Metal Bullion Industry
The Ides of March came and went, with the Fed’s “dovish hike” once and for all proving it cares nothing about the economy, and everything about the stock market, and its Wall Street masters.  The following, damning chart of who has benefited from a decade of post-financial crisis Central bank largesse; not including, of course, the vast amount of covert market support – and likely, inside information dissemination – to the Fed’s partners-in-crime, the “too big to fail” banks; whose joint goal is

Gold Prices +3% as Fed Rate Rise Lags Inflation, Dollar Falls, Greek Debt Deadlines Loom
GOLD PRICES rose further Thursday in London, gaining almost 3% in Dollar terms since the Federal Reserve raised US interest rates as expected yesterday, and also raised its forecast for interest-rate hikes ahead. Continuing to re-invest the central bank's $4 trillion QE holdings of US Treasury bonds as they mature, the Fed's Open Market Committee now sees its key rate ending 2017 no lower than 1.4% versus 1.1% at the December meeting.

Gold Silver Manipulation: The Biggest Financial Crime In History, Part II - Dave Kranzler/Stewart Dougherty
More from Stewart Dougherty below: As this immensely profitable fraud has been perpetrated, the MFM have bombarded the populace with a propaganda campaign that smears and mis-characterizes gold. Rising precious metals prices are always presented as being ominous, negative and inimical to the people, while declining prices are consistently placed in a favorable light. This propaganda has been carefully crafted and timed so that when massive, coordinated price attacks occur, market observers

Of Useful Idiots and COMEX Silver Speculators
Incredibly, open interest (OI) on COMEX silver continues to skyrocket, now only a few thousand contracts from all time highs.Why is this happening? Answer: Hedge fund buying with other people’s money. What’s more, the options are largely viewed as sacrifice trades (hedges), seen as lost money before the trade is put on, because if they don’t pay off this means the rest of their gambling probably will. Now normally, this would be a very bad sign for silver prices, because in terms of COMEX specul

The U.S. Economy, Post-Payrolls And Pre-FOMC
By Gary TanashianThis week’s Notes From the Rabbit Hole included a little Payrolls/Wages related economic discussion before moving on to the usual coverage of stock markets, commodities, precious metals, bonds, currencies and related indicators and market internals.  With FOMC on tap there will be more data noise directly ahead, but then I expect markets to smooth out into what is looking like a sensible short and intermediate-term plan.U.S. EconomyGraphic sources:  St. Louis Fed, BLS, TradingEc

Totalitarianism 101
Signs of The Times Perspective What a range of headlines! The first one about "informing" is right out of Totalitarianism 101, common to both international or national socialism. The one about banks pulling back from lending to condo developers reminds of Mises’ view on a contraction. At the top, the banks don’t have to call the loans, they just become nervous and stop making them. Then there would be the reversals in the credit markets.

The fateful date
Caesar: What sayest thou to me now? Speak once again. Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March. Caesar: He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass. This famous advice, according to Shakespeare, was ignored with fatal consequences for Julius Caesar. Markets may be being similarly complacent ahead of this anniversary date next week. The Fed has signalled that it will raise interest rates at the FOMC’s March meeting, timed for the same day. It so happens that this fateful date coincides with the end of th
