Decentralization-The Future Of Monetary Value
Of all the things I’ve observed in my three decades of financial market watching, none baffles me more than the idiocy of the Charlie Brown-like “traders” that buy paper gold and silver contracts on the COMEX, only to have the “football” pulled out by “Cartel Lucy” time and time again. Albert Einstein put it best when he defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results”; and in my view, nothing is more insane than betting against a “house” run by the

Manchester Attack Sees Asian Stocks Fall, Gold Firm
The appalling attack in Manchester overnight in which over 22 people have been killed has led to a slight uptick in risk aversion in markets. Investors are cautious after police said they were treating a bombing at a concert in the Manchester Arena as a “terrorist incident”. Gold in GBP (24 hours) Asian stocks  gave up gains after the attacks and European indices had a subdued start. Gold rose in the aftermath of the attacks to three week highs prior to giving up some of the gains by mid morning

Markets Should Fear Central Banks More Than Trump
Trump’s economic agenda has become further delayed by what seems like daily leaks from the White House. This may finally bring about the long-awaited equity market pullback of at least 5 percent. However, what will prove to be far more troubling than Trump’s ongoing feuds with the DOJ and the press, is the upcoming market collapse due to the removal of the bids from global central banks. The markets have been feeding off artificial interest rates from our Federal Reserve and that of the European

More ‘Not-So-USFed’ Doubletalk – Consumer Health
There was some good news and some not so good news in the Fed’s latest annual Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households. First the good news. The report, based on the Board’s fourth annual Survey of Household Economics and Decisionmaking conducted in October 2016, presents a “picture of improving financial well-being among Americans”, at least according to the report (read on to see if this is merited). Overall, 70% of the more than 6,600 respondents said they were either “living comf

Catalonia Threatens Immediate Declaration of Independence if Spain Doesn’t Approve Referendum
The constitutional crisis in Spain may be coming to a head quickly according to a leaked document on a “Secret Law for Catalonia Independence” as reported by El Pais. Spain’s Attorney General José Manuel Maza is set to examine the legality of a plan outlined by the regional government of Catalonia to activate immediate secession from Spain if the central government in Madrid stops it from holding a vote on independence – something it is planning on doing in September or October of this year.

Voters Smack Spain’s Political Leadership: Snap Spanish Presidential Elections Coming Up?
Last year, the socialist party (PSOE) leadership ousted Pedro Sánchez as its head when Sánchez refused to allow a minority government of Mariano Rajoy to form. Susana Díaz took over as party head. Socialist party elections were held yesterday. Sánchez ran again as an outsider and shocked the POSE leadership winning an outright majority of votes in a three-way race. This was a clear smack in the face to the party leadership who backed Susana Díaz. With Sánchez back at the helm in Parliament, Rajo

Gold Unmoved as Silver Prices Hit 3-Week High, Trump Sees Dollar Sink Again
SILVER PRICES touched a 3-week high on Monday morning in London, while gold stayed firm and the Dollar fell again amid fresh political turmoil around US President Donald Trump, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. The US Dollar fell to its lowest Euro value since last November – just before Trump's White House victory – as the President's first foreign tour saw accusations of "double-speak" towards Saudi Arabia f

The "Smart Money" Is Sensing a BREXIT-Type Event.
The “smart money” is flashing a signal that the US economy and ultimately the financial system, are in serious trouble. CNBC and other media outlets like to focus on stocks because they tend to be more volatile and therefore more exciting. But BONDS are the “smart money” for the financial system. The Bond market is larger, more liquid and involves more sophisticated investors than stocks. As such it usually picks up on major issues much earlier. On that note, the Bond market yield curve is flatt

The Nuclear Option
As explained by Paul Craig Roberts, and unbeknownst to most, prior to the French election, and before Trump fired Comey, US neoconsevatives (neocons) in Washington threatened a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia – and apparently they are serious. Serious – no way right? They can’t be that crazy. Apparently such an assumption would be wrong – because they are – where they believe they can go overseas – nuke Russia (North Korea -- anybody?) – and nothing will happen to them coddled comfortably i

The bull market and Donald Trump's death knell 
In the minds of many investors, the election victory of Donald J. Trump to the United States Presidency was nothing short of a miracle.  Following his shocking victory, expectations were high that Trump would, with the help of Congress, fulfill his promises of tax reform and infrastructure spending.  The lifting of the heavy penalties associated with Obamacare was another hope that investors cherished.  Many hailed his victory by declaring that it was “morning in America” again.But after only si

The Silver To Gold Ratio, As Undervalued As At Anytime In History
First off, I want to thank the two dozen-plus people who sent well-wishing emails as I fight through my illness, now in its second week.  The oupouring of support is touching, with everything from specific cure suggestions, to simply hoping I “get well soon.”  To that end, I’m happy to say the worst has passed – and thus, that by this time next week, I expect to be fully recovered! Secondly, let’s just say that, despite yesterday’s unprecedented market rigging – of stocks, bonds, and crude oil,

THREE Charts That Tell Us the Next Financial Crisis is Closer Than Most Think
The election night bull market trendline is about to break. The only reason stocks have held up is hype and hope for Trump's economic agenda. With the entire MSM, establishment shills, and deep state operatives trying to derail this, the market is about to lose this prop. More worrisom for the financial system: the long-term bull market trendline for long bonds is in danger of breaking. How will that $199 TRILLION in debt adjust to higher interest rates? Not well.  Finally, Oil never reclaimed

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats Modestly From 2-Week Highs
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/05-18-18 Gold has turned modestly defensive intraday following a round of positive U.S. economic data that buoyed stocks. However, the shadow of U.S. political uncertainty continues to hold sway on markets. The yellow metal remains above the 200-day moving average and more than 61.8% of the entire decline from 1295.03 to 1213.60 has been retraced. This presents a generally favorable technical picture, which bodes well for the underlying uptrend that emerged in the wake of las

Gold edges lower after biggest rally since Brexit vote
Reuters/Jan Harvey/05-18-17 Gold eased on Thursday as a bounce in the dollar prompted some buyers to cash in gains after its biggest one-day rally in nearly a year, though uncertainty over the outlook for the Trump presidency underpinned the metal near two-week highs. Gold surged nearly 2 percent on Wednesday, its biggest one-day jump since Britain’s June vote to leave the European Union, on reports that U.S. President Donald Trump had tried to intervene in an investigation into alleged Russian

Morning Snapshot: Gold remains generally well bid amid political turmoil
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/05-18-17 Gold remains generally well bid in the wake of yesterday’s solid gains. The yellow metal remains underpinned by haven demand amid ongoing U.S. political turmoil. Stocks extended to the downside in pre-market trading, adding to Wednesday’s considerable losses as risk appetite continues to wane. As BusinessInsider’s Pedro da Costa put it, “the challenge to Trump’s political power has reached a level that means his economic agenda is off the rails.” That would suggest t

That brings the dollar back to roughly where it was just before the US presidential election. The index closed at 97.861 on November 8, the day of the election, according to Bloomberg data.
