Gold eases in French election afterglow; N.Korea woes limit losses
Reuters/Swati Verma/04-25-17 Gold prices eased on Tuesday as investor sentiment remained skewed towards riskier assets in the wake of the French election results last weekend, though concerns over Korean peninsula limited the safe-haven’s losses. …”People are going on the risk-on scenario (after French election results), but gold didn’t really fall too far away,” said Yuichi Ikemizu, head of commodity trading at Standard Bank in Tokyo. “There are more people who are still worried about not only

Daily Market Report: Gold Remains Defensive as Risk Appetite is Stoked
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-25-17 Gold extended modestly lower, exceeding yesterday’s low at 1265.12 as risk assets continue to benefit from the French election results and the prospect of much lower U.S. corporate taxes. The weaker dollar and geopolitical risks continue to offer some support. “Between the France election and the prospects of corporate tax cuts being proposed in the next few days, it’s clearly a risk-on backdrop.” — Thierry Albert Wizman, global interest rates and currencies strategi

  Gold Bullion Erases $10 Bounce Despite French Election, N.Korea Risks, Imports to China Jump
GOLD BULLION erased all of last night's $10 rally from 2-week Dollar lows Tuesday morning in London, trading back at $1268 per ounce as world stock markets extended their gains following the first-round of France's presidential election. With pro-Euro centrist Emmanuel Macron now facing the National Front's Marine Le Pen in May 7's run-off, "The presence of the far-right in the second round is a risk for the country," said current president Fran

Morning Snapshot: Gold retests yesterday’s post French election lows
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-25-17 Gold remains defensive as markets reverse out the French election risks, and look ahead to the May 7 run-off, where centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron is expected to handily beat Marine Le Pen. Investors will be watching the polls closely in the weeks ahead to see if Le Pen can narrow the differential. Weakness in the dollar that is associated with the rebound in the euro will help to limit the downside in gold. Elevated geopolitical tensions provide an underpinning

LePen Euro Frexit Panic Over – “For Now”
by John Stepek, Editor of Money Week OK, drama’s over. The French election has turned out pretty much exactly as expected. For all that some of the papers are leading with “French revolution” headlines, the reality is that a face-off between the right-wing Marine Le Pen of the Front National and independent/socialist candidate Emmanuel Macron of En Marche! has been on the cards for months now. LePen and Gold bars (Metalor 100g). Concerns about Frexit and the end of the euro has seen strong dema

French election results just an excuse to kick gold, Embry tells KWN
Sprott Asset Management's John Embry tells King World News today that while the results of the first round of France's presidential election were entirely expected, they provided another excuse for central banks and governments to slap gold down, but it wasn't very successful.

The Daily Market Report: Gold Pressured on Revived Risk Appetite
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-24-17 Gold remains lower on the day, as “risk-on” seems to be the order of the day following the French election results. However, the yellow metal is already more than $10 off the intraday low, buoyed by persistent geopolitical risks and a weaker dollar. The outcome of the French election was pretty much as expected, with Macron and Le Pen advancing to the May 7 run-off. Europhile centrist Macron is widely expected to be the winner of that contest, which has reignited ris

If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part V-Rigging Versus Reality
It’s early Monday, and let’s start by clearing our heads of the ramifications of yesterday’s first round of the French Presidential election process – in which, as expected, 39-year Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild Bank investment banker whose only political experience was miserably failing as “Economy Minister” under outgoing President Francois Hollande (whose approval rating was so low – principally because the French economy has collapsed – he didn’t run for re-election); running under a

Can Macron Save the World? Save France?
The markets appear giddy today over the election prospects of Emanuel Macron in France. Equities are up along with bond yields. Gold is down. The day is still young though. Macron won round one of the French election yesterday and will square off against Marine Le Pen in round two on May 7. He is widely expected to win round two, becoming the next president of France.

Centrist Emmanuel Macron took a big step towards the French presidency on Sunday by winning the first round of voting, with the latest opinion polls showing him as strong favorite to beat far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the

Gold Price Sinks as 'Markets Favorite' Macron Beats Anti-Euro Le Pen in France's 1st Round
GOLD PRICES fell at the fastest pace in 2 weeks on Monday morning in London as pro-growth centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron received the highest number of votes in the first round of France's presidential election, with world stock markets jumping amid a sell-off in 'safe haven' government bonds, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault.

Ready, Set, Splat.
As I write, the French stock market (the CAC 40), is doing a grand jeté (up 4.5 percent!) in celebration of Emmanuel Macron’s assumed slaying of the dragon Le Pen. But that was just the first round under the interesting French election system. Consider that two other candidates who were eliminated, Monsieurs Fillon and Mélenchon, got nearly 40 percent of the vote. Are we so sure about where their voters go in the second and final round two weeks from now? I suspect that most Americans — even the

Morning Snapshot: Gold falls on revived risk appetite after French election

As anticipated, Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will advance will advance to the run-off election on May 7, with the former favored to win. This is the first time in more than sixty-years that the two main political parties in France do not have a candidate in the run-off, reflecting the ongoing dissatisfaction with the political status quo.

A gold sovereign from that period is currently valued at between £200-250, with a half sovereign worth between £100-200. A pouch contains just a sampling of the 913 coins composing the hoar

To Frexit or Not to Frexit, Report 23 April, 2017
This was also a holiday-shorted week. As we write this, the big news comes from the election in France. The leading candidate is a banker named Emmanuel Macron, with about 24% of the vote in a 4-candidate race. The anti-euro Marine Le Pen came in second with just over 21%. From the sharp rally in the euro, which was up about 2% at one point, we assume that observers believe the odds of France leaving the euro have just gone down. Of course, France (and the other European countries) faces a false

  If You Understand History and Economics, You Understand Gold 
by Egon von Greyerz How can ordinary people ever understand the importance of gold when they are continuously fed with false and distorted facts. The latest publication to publish false and ignorant propaganda on gold is the British weekly magazine the Economist. The article begins with a graph of gold starting in September 2011. Anyone who knows anything about gold recognises that this is the time when gold reached a peak of $1,930. Between 1999 and 2011 gold had gone from $250 to $1,930 which

Why the Big Banks Are Terrified of Le Pen Winning in France (but not BREXIT or Trump)
France holds the first round of its Presidential election this weekend. The big worry for the markets is the fact that anti-Euro candidate Marin Le Pen could potentially win. Now, the polls show Le Pen as having NO chance of becoming Prime Minister.  Of course, the polls also showed that BREXIT would not happen and Hillary Clinton had a 98% of becoming President. We all know how those turned out. “So what?” one might ask, “why would a Le Pen victory matter? Both BREXIT and Trump’s Presidential e
