Palladium to underperform the PM complex
In recent weeks palladium prices have soared to levels only rarely seen. This is all the more impressive in that precious metals prices more generally have moved sideways, including palladium’s big sister platinum. There are fundamental explanations offered but we do not believe these justify sustained high prices. More probably, non-physical speculative traders have chased upward momentum of late, leaving palladium exposed to highly asymmetric downside in the event these traders choose to exit.

Are the World’s Billionaire Investors Actually Buying Gold?
Infographic website Visual Capitalist recently published an eye-catching infographic on behalf of Sprott Physical Bullion Trusts which featured 4 well-known billionaire investors and their supposed investments in gold. The infographic is titled “Why the World’s Billionaire Investors Buy Precious Metals” and can be seen here. The 4 investors profiled in the infographic are: Jacob Rothschild (Lord), chairman of London-based investment trust RIT Capital Partners Plc David Einhorn, president of Man

Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy
Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

Anti-Gold Propaganda Flares Up - Dave Kranzler
Predictably, after the gold price has been pushed down in the paper market by the western Central Banks – primarily the Federal Reserve – negative propaganda to outright fake news proliferates. The latest smear-job comes from London-based Capital Economics by way of Kitco.com. Some “analyst” – Simona Gambarini – with the job title, “commodity economist,” reports that “gold’s luck has run out” with the 25 basis point nudge in rates by the Fed. She further explains that her predicted two

Left wing, ...
One of the saddest things about Britain’s recent general election was the level of ignorance displayed by all parties on the broad subject of political economics. I use the term to include both political philosophy and pure economic theory.Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists seem to think free markets are right-wing. The Conservatives appear to have lost all compass, most government ministers believing free markets without government regulation are chaotic, with unscrupul

A Rigged Game 
76 years ago, “Joltin’ Joe” DiMaggio was in the middle of the hitting streak of streaks that would come to 56 consecutive games and which has remained a major league baseball record to this day. That season (1941), the Yankee Clipper would bat .408 during the epic streak or more than 4 hits for every 10 at bats. Ted Williams, of the Boston Red Sox, had the highest batting average in 1941, hitting .406 for the entire season. What would you say if I told you that a batter had hit 1.000 for an enti

Gold Bullion 'Set to Recover' as Stocks Fall 3rd Day on Global Crude Oil Glut
GOLD BULLION halved a 1% rally from yesterday's new 5-week lows against the Dollar on Thursday, dipping back below $1250 per ounce as world stock markets fell for a third day, pulled down by oil and energy shares. Crude oil traded near 12-month lows around $42 per barrel of US benchmark WTI. Major government bond prices rose, pushing 10-year US Treasury yields down towards their lowest since Don

“At the time, my life just seemed too complete, and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves.”  -Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club I am still trying to interpret and integrate all that I experienced and learned about disintermediation, about myself, and about y'all at last week's First ZeroHedge Symposium and Live Fight Club in Marfa, Texas.

Are Central Banks Getting Ready to Crash the System Again?
While investors pile into Tech Stocks based on endless promotion from the financial media, the US economy is rolling over. Last week the NY Fed downgraded its economic forecast for 2Q17 to just 1.9%. Even worse, it is now forecasting 2017 total growth to be a measly 1.5%. Yes, 1.5%. There is a clear trend to this chart… and it’s NOT up. Source: NY Fed Wait, it gets worse. The Citi Surprise Index has collapsed to levels not seen since 2011. Source: Yardeni Research Why does this level matter? T

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

May Retail Sales, CPI, Other Data and Gold
Last week, a few important U.S. economic reports were released. What do they imply for the gold market? The recent days were eventful. The Fed hiked interest rates, the U.S. Treasury unveiled its deregulation plan, and several important pieces of economic news were published. First of all, retail sales fell 0.3 percent in May following a 0.4 percent rise in April. The number was below expectations. Actually, it marked the worst decline since January 2016. However, the drop was mainly caused by a

Gold Price Slips vs. Falling Dollar as Oil Bounces, Bank of England Split Boosts 'Brexit-Hit' Pound
GOLD  PRICES held near 5-week lows against a falling US Dollar on Wednesday, trading at $1243 per ounce as commodities rallied but world stock markets extended Tuesday's retreat in New York. As Brent crude oil rallied $1 per barrel from yesterday's 7-month lows near $45, that pulled the EuroStoxx 50 index of major European shares more than 1% lower. The British Pound meantime rallied aft

The Central-Bank Moment
Hyman Minsky was an economist who popularised the idea that “stability leads to instability”. According to Minsky and his followers, credit expands rapidly during the good times to the point where a lot of borrowing is being done by financially fragile/vulnerable entities, thus sowing the seeds of a financial crisis. That’s why the start of a financial crisis is now often referred to as a “Minsky moment”. Unfortunately, Minsky’s analysis was far too superficial. Minsky described a process during

Forget the Stock Market, Pay Attention to This
You can take this to the bank: Americans are messed up about money. A slew of new surveys and data have come out revealing that we don’t save enough, we spend money we don’t have, we have our financial priorities backwards — and more. Here are five new stats that prove Americans are backwards about money. About 1 in 4 literally have no emergency savings. A survey released Tuesday by Bankrate.com found that 24% don’t have even a single dollar saved for an emergency. And that’s just one of many s

Is the Fed About to Burst Its Third Bubble?
Stocks continue to trade at nosebleed valuations. According to Fact Set, the S&P 500 is currently trading at a P/E of 21. This is well above its 10-year average of 16.7. And bear in mind, eight of those ten years (from 2010-2017) were when stocks were already overvalued. Source: Fact Set. So the market is extremely overvalued today, even compared to a period in which it has been overvalued. This begs the question… just what justifies these valuation? It isn’t the US economy. GDP growth has be
