Bitcoin Hyper-Deflation
A meme we have seen in the bitcoin community seems to be gaining traction. Bitcoin is deflationary. That is prices of things, measured in bitcoin, are falling. For example, in spring 2011, gasoline was Ƀ1.00. This week, that same gallon had fallen to Ƀ0.0001875. Gas has gone down by 99.98 percent! We don’t think that even the diehard bitcoin bugs really believe this. But it leads to an interesting point. In the past, we have used the analogy of measuring a steel meter stick with stretchy rubber

Gold Juniors’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness.  The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them.  The juniors recently reported Q3 earnings, and enjoyed strong results. Four times a year publicly-traded companies

Silver Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals

Scientists Look For Signs Of Alien Life On Newly Discovered Planet
A mere 11 light-years away from our Solar System, a newly discovered exoplanet is the second-closest we’ve ever found that’s temperate enough to potentially host and sustain life. The Earth-sized exoplanet was just discovered and scientists are already searching for signs of life. Ross 128 b orbits the inactive red dwarf star, Ross 128, in the system’s “Goldilocks zone.” This zone is known as the area in perfect distance from a star to support life. The planet is also probably rocky, not gaseous

Pure-Play Vanadium Producer's Q3 Revenues Increase 153 YOY
With the price of vanadium on the rise, one pure-play producer is reaping the benefits. Vanadium, a metal that maintains a low profile, has been on a tear recently. The metal is used to harden steel: a mere two pounds of vanadium added to one ton of steel doubles its strength. The price of vanadium has surged since the summer, led by the expectation of China increasing the required amount of vanadium in steel used for construction, acco

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q3’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued.

THE BIGGEST WEALTH TRANSFER IN HISTORY
What will happen between now and 2025? Nobody knows of course but I will later in this article have a little peek into the next 4-8 years. The concentration of wealth in the world has now reached dangerous proportions. The three richest people in the world have a greater wealth than the bottom 50%. The top 1% have a wealth of $33 trillion whilst the bottom 1% have a debt $196 billion. The interesting point is not just that the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer. More interesting is to

  What Now? 
It must be exciting to wake up on a gilded bed somewhere in Riyadh and realize that you are Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, mover and shaker of Middle East order. Actually, exciting just to have woken up at all. Perhaps Prince MBS checks to make sure that there aren’t seventy-two virgins in the room before he rises to prayers, state business, and the prospect of World War Three.

I'm Thinking Profit Potential
As the demand for solar energy has increased so has the demand for the materials needed in the production of solar or photovoltaic panels. Once installed, solar panels produce zero emissions as they convert sunlight directly into energy via the photovoltaic effect, bypassing the turbine system found in every other commercial energy source. Azo.com Some of the better known materials used in solar panel construction are; 1. aluminum for frames 2. copper for wiring 3. silver for soldered connec

The Crash of 1929 -
"...people believed that everything was going to be great always, always. There was a feeling of optimism in the air that you cannot even describe today." "There was great hope.

We had a very popular president in the middle of the decade, Calvin Coolidge, and an even more popular one elected in 1928, Herbert Hoover. So things looked pretty good." "The economy was changing
