Stock Markets and Precious Metals Charts - FOMC Decision Wednesday, Stock Option Expiration Friday
"They never open their mouths without subtracting from the sum of human knowledge." Thomas Reed (R-Maine) Bloomberg had economist Art Laffer, of the eponymous Laffer Curve, talking up the GOP 'Tax Reform' bill in all its 'trickle down' glory. I did not even know this retrograde nonsense peddler was still around, having been discredited in his economic theory of top down stimulus rebranded as 'supply side economics'. Now we know just how bad for the people this new tax legislation may be. The

1) Stockman on fire Former Reagan budget director and current proprietor of the eponymous “David Stockman’s Contra Corner” was on fire in the Bloomberg interview linked below. Within the space of 8 minutes he manages to explain: a) Why the tax reform package being negotiated in the US will add upwards of $1.5 trillion to the US federal debt over the next several years without prompting a significant increase in domestic investment or providing any other real help to the US economy. b) That forme

THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

The Chances Are Exactly Zero
Financial sanity and stability may not return, but we can protect our assets and learn from the discussion. The DOW, S&P500, NASDAQ and other markets sell at all-time highs. However, we know many imbalances exist within our financial world. This is not new – things have been crazy before, are now, and will be again. But to regain financial sanity we need: From “Doug Casey on the New Fed Chair” “In an ideal world there would be some radical changes. The best thing for the US in the (famous) long

  What Now? 
“Contact with Russians.” Grown men and women, doubling and re-doubling down on a political fantasy, repeat this prayer hour after hour on the cable channels and Web waves as if trying to exorcise a nation possessed by the unholy hosts of Hell. But such vicars of the news as Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow, Chuck Todd, and Dean Baquet (of The New York Times) only shove the country closer to a cliff of constitutional crisis. To a certain class of people — a class that includes a lot of Intellectuals-Y

You're Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming 
I hate to break it to you, but chances are you're just not prepared for what’s coming. Not even close.  Don't take it personally. I'm simply playing the odds. After spending more than a decade warning people all over the world about the futility of pursuing infinite exponential economic growth on a finite planet, I can tell you this: very few are even aware of the nature of our predicament. An even smaller subset is either physically or financially ready for the sort of future barreling down on

Democrats Are Now Running Campaigns That Specifically Tell Voters Not To Vote For A Man In Order To Stop Sexual Harassment 
Despite losing the 2016 election largely because the Democrat Party refused to move away from divisive identity based politics they have apparently not learned their lesson, with at least one powerful female Democrat deciding to piggyback off the wave of sexual assault allegations sweeping the country by openly telling Michigan voters to vote for her because she is a women. Democratic candidate for Michigan’s Attorney General, Dana Nessel, has released an ad for her campaign that directly implie

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

The Wizard of Oz – 2017 Version
Frank Baum wrote “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” over a century ago. The story charms readers on several levels. The books and movie have been exceptionally popular. This interpretation describes the symbolism: Emerald City: Greenbacks – paper money Yellow Brick Road: The gold standard backing money Dorothy’s Silver Slippers: Silver standard backing money (changed to Ruby color in the movie) Scarecrow: Populist Midwestern farmers, perceived to be brainless by northern bankers Tin Man: Dehumanized

What is The Everything Bubble? And how can you prepare for it?
What do formerly successful hedge funds going out of business, wacky economic data points, and the election of populists like Donald Trump all have in common? All of them are the product of The Everything Bubble. In the aftermath of the 2008 Crisis, Central Banks attempted to corner the sovereign bond market via low interest rates and massive QE programs. Doing this represented the End Game for Central Bank policy. In a fiat-based monetary system, (meaning the currencies are not backed by anyth

What Trumps Dollars and Gold?
I have commented and written extensively on the generally negative correlation of the US dollar and gold. In simple terms, when the US dollar moves up or down, the price of gold tends to do the opposite. This makes sense because the price of gold is quoted on world markets in good ol’ American greenbacks. That said, there are many other factors that contribute to the price of gold. These include: world economic health; geopolitical events; physical demand for jewelry, investment, hoarding, and i

Catalonia Independence Parties in Lead for December 21 Election
Spain dissolved the Catalan Parliament following its declaration of independence. Separatists have lead latest polls. The Spanish government dissolved the Catalan parliament and arrested many of its leaders following its declaration of independence. Ousted Catalan president, Carles Puigdemont is in exile in Belgium. Puigdemont faces trumped up charges of rebellion and sedition. It is impossible for Puigdemont to get a fair trial in Spain, and everyone with any bit of honesty or common sense know

Radical Reform and the 28th Amendment 
A frequent objection often encountered in trying to launch radical reform for America’s political system is that in today’s world it will be impossible to induce radical change because the people just don’t care. They are mesmerized by their SUVs and all the goodies that Consumerland has brought them. They are already bought and paid for with the bread and circuses government perpetually sends their way and will not give a damn as long as government promises to take care of them. This way of thi

What We Can Expect For Gold Prices in the Wake of the Hurricane Season
The recent spate of back-to-back hurricanes in the US is expected to compound the economic damage of an already over-extended debt. As the stock market braces for a correction, traders are inclined to sell out of riskier stock markets and take refuge in safe havens like gold. Although it will take months for the impact of the hurricane season to be apparent, investors are already losing appetite for risk and investing in secure assets as gold. This was evident from the figures leading up to the
