Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Preview
With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results.  No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason.  Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing their operations’ underlying fundamental realities.  Q3’17’s upcoming results are likely to prove quite bullish for this neglected sector. Four times a year publicly-traded

Print till it Dies
The US Dollar has had a wonderful run in its life time. Not too many fiat currencies have had the ability to sustain its usage for as long as this mighty experiment has and all who have reported on this instrument of trade are pretty much pointing to the same outcome that it can’t last much longer. Today, the US Dollar trade sits at 93.55 down 8.6 points in the early morning on this Columbus Day. Not too long ago the dollar broke thru a multiyear downside target of 91.88 which originally happene

  No Joy in Trumpville
I took advantage of the calm before the storm, to pay a visit on Saturday to my hometown, Trumpville, a.k.a. Manhattan. My college buddy had a son who was acting in an off-Broadway play (closing night, so don’t bother asking). The city I knew as a kid — which, frankly, I never liked very much — seemed as lost and far away as Peter Stuyvesant’s quaint Dutch colonial outpost did to me in 1962. That lost city of my childhood was one in which a boy could breeze right into the Metropolitan Museum of

Getting Schooled in Freedom
Hello Silver and Gold holders. I truly appreciate the chance to write for Miles Franklin and hope that you read, learn, and enjoy, the viewpoints from the new writers in our tribe. No one individual has it all down but as a team, we’re able to work thru the articles and news (so called) being pummeled out there by media groups failing at every turn to report anything factual within the financial arenas as well as the Middle American view. This truly is the topic of freedom in all its aspects and

Trump Wants a “See-Through Wall”: He Will Choose the Design Personally
Trump wants a “great wall” on the US-Mexican border that Mexico will pay for. A new wrinkle is the wall must be see-through so we can see who is on the other side. Trump will personally select the design. CNN reports ‘You don’t need it all the way’ and other things Trump said about ‘the wall’ on Friday. President Donald Trump assured a crowd in Alabama Friday night that “the wall is happening.” Here are some of the more notable comments the President made during his speech regarding the constru

America’s Hamiltonian Empire of Lies 
In his essay, “Anatomy of the State,” Murray Rothbard wrote of how states preserve their power with a number of tools, most notably an alliance with “intellectuals.”  In return for power, positions, and pelf, the “intellectuals” work diligently to persuade “the majority” that “their government is good, wise and, at least, inevitable.”  This is the “the vital stock task of the intellecuals.”  The “molding of opinion” is what “the State most desperately needs” if it is to maintain is powers, wrote

The forthcoming global crisis
The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greates

UNPREDEDENTED GLOBAL RISK – NO ONE CARES
“Risk involves the chance an investment’s actual return will differ from the expected return. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment.” (Investopedia) So there we have it. Risk means that you can lose part or all of the investment. Normally valuations take risk into account. But is the world really valuing the following risks accurately: A very risky world Wars North Korea – South Korea – USA – Japan – China – Russia incl. nuclear war Ukraine – USA – Russi

The Suncor Story
This article is largely the text of a presentation I recently gave for the launch of my latest book.  The well-attended event took place at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary.  The image above is a map of Alberta’s oil sands, and its purpose is to orient you geographically to the oil sands themselves. I have registered the book as a Canada 150 publication, so it sports that logo. In global terms, the oil sands are the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. Only Venezuela has more bitumen

GOLD HAS BROKEN OUT – DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND
The coming gold and silver moves in the next few months will really surprise most investors as market volatility increases substantially. It seems right now that “All (is) quiet on the Western Front” as Erich-Maria Remarque wrote about WWI. Ten years after the Great Financial Crisis started and nine years after the Lehman collapse, it seems that the world is in better shape than ever. Stocks are at historical highs, interest rates at historical lows, house prices are booming again and consumers

Payrolls in August 2017 and Gold
The U.S. economy added 156,000 jobs in August. What does it mean for the gold market? Total nonfarm payroll employment increased 156,000 in August, following an increase of 210,000 in June (after a downward revision), according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Analysts had expected 180,000 jobs to be created. Thus, the actual number significantly disappointed expectations. Moreover, employment gains in June and July combined were 41,000 lower than previously reported. It means that job ga

Silver Miners’ Q2’17 Fundamentals
The silver miners’ stocks have largely languished this year, grinding sideways near lows for months on end.  This vexing consolidation has fueled near-universal bearishness, leaving silver stocks deeply out of favor.  But once a quarter when earnings season arrives, hard fundamentals pierce the obscuring veil of popular sentiment.  The silver miners’ recently-reported Q2’17 results reveal today’s silver prices remain profitable.

  A Hot Mess 
It wasn’t until more than a week after Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans in 2005 that the full extent of the damage was recognized and so it will go with the hot mess where Houston used to be. Mostly, it is inconceivable that the business activity which made Houston the nation’s fourth largest city and, according to Chris Martenson, equal to the 10th largest economy in the world, will ever return to what it was before August 26, 2017. The major activity there has been the refining and d

However, follow-through gains were limited ahead of the long Labor Day weekend. Nonetheless, the yellow metal remains generally well bid with favorable fundamental and technical backdrops. Short-term setbacks will likely be viewed as buying opportunities. The weaker than expected rise in nonfarm payrolls in August, along with negative revisions to previous mon
