Irredeemable Currency De-tooths Savers
Arbitrary Interest Rates In the past few weeks, we have argued that interest rates will not rise. We have made our arguments based on observable cases of soft credit demand that falls with rising rates, and analysis of the incentives on creditors and debtors. Ours is a case that rates can’t go up much, for long, because demand for credit won’t chase rates up. In the postwar period up to 1981, borrowers chased rates all the way up the moon. But not since then. Now, we want to make a theoretical a

The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

Start of Chinese New Year Holiday See Gold Bullion Whip on US Inflation Data, Turkey Threatens 'Ottoman Slap'
GOLD BULLION prices fell as the Dollar jumped on stronger-than-expected US inflation data Wednesday, only to recover the drop as fixed-income bond prices fell, pushing longer-term interest rates higher once more. World stock markets also sank and then rallied on the news, with Germany's Dax regaining a previous 1.0% loss by mid-afternoon in Frankfurt. Gold priced in non-US currencies also spiked

What the Stock Market Decline Means for Gold and Gold Stocks
It was a rough week for investors in stocks and stocks of all kinds. The S&P 500 lost 5%. Emerging Markets also lost 5%. Gold Stocks, which had weakened before the broader equity market have been hit hard. They (GDX, GDXJ) also lost 5% last week. The HUI Gold Bugs Index (which excludes royalty companies unlike GDX) lost 7%. After a strong start to the year, gold stocks have essentially given back all their gains. Nevertheless, we remain extremely optimistic on gold stocks over the next 12-18 mon

This Time is Different. Really?!
Axel Merk, Merk Investments February 13, 2018  Follow @AxelMerk Tweet “Don’t panic, buy the dip, who cares?” or “These are rumblings of an earthquake, people will be hurt like in 1929” - which one is it? I would call it a wake-up call. Let me explain: In recent years, markets had appeared eerily “safe”. Central banks promised to do “whatever it takes”, provided “forward guidance” to keep rates low, even printed money to

Sovereign Wealth Funds Investing In Gold For “Long Term Returns” – PwC
– Sovereign wealth funds investing in gold for long term returns – PwC – Gold has outperformed equities and bonds over the long term – PwC Research – Gold is up 6.7% and 6.8% per annum over 10 and 20 year periods; Stocks and bonds returned less than 5.2% respectively over same period (see PwC table) – From 1971 to 2016 (45 years), “gold real returns were approximately 10% while inflation increased 4%” – Gold also valuable due to lack of correlation and hedge against inflation, currency devaluati

Good things happen to governments that do this, and bad things happen to those that don’t. “Stable Money” means: money that is stable in value. The traditional way to accomplish this is to link currencies to g

Something is definitely “changing” but what is it?
Markets around the world are convulsing which is definitely different than anything we have seen in over a year. We also know that interest rates are going higher all over the world. In fact, if you look at rates going back to 1981, the downtrend line(s) has been broken and thus a very major change. Generational trades and 37 year trend lines are rare on their own, when they finally break it means something very big has changed and you must do your very best at trying to figure out “what” it is.

Take It To The Bank: Interest Rates Won’t Rise
How Not to Predict Interest Rates We continue our hiatus from capital destruction to look further at interest rates. Last week, our Report was almost prescient. We said: The first thing we must say about this is that people should pick one: (A) rising stock market or (B) rising interest rates. They both cannot be true (though we could have falling rates and falling stocks). We write these Reports over the weekend. At the time of last week’s writing session, Friday’s close on the S&P was 2757 (fu

Investment Fads 
We have been fascinated by the chart on the publically-traded shares of the Swiss National Bank. Yes, it is the central bank, it trades, it zooms and it is long the latest fad in investing. Fiduciary responsibility being a constriction has become a neglected concept. Their reserves have been committed to equities and the chart records the euphoria of the day. As one would expect the biggest positions include the fad stocks of today. In the 1980s, we first wrote a piece on life insurance compan

Global Synchronized Bond Collapse
We have all heard, in ad nauseam fashion, Wall Street’s current favorite mantra touting a global synchronized economic recovery. For the record, global GDP growth for 2017 was 3.7%, according to the International Monetary Fund. And, although this is an improvement from recent years, you must take into account that in 2004 it was 4.4%, in 2005 it was 3.8%, in 2006 it was 4.3%, and in 2007 it was 4.2%. The Point being, it’s not as if the current rate of global growth has climbed to a level never b

Will Hawkish Fed and Strong Payrolls Blow Out Gold Rally?
At the end of last week, gold encountered a couple of headwinds. Will they topple the yellow metal? First Gust of Wind: Fed As we predicted, the last FOMC meeting turned out to be more hawkish than expected. On January 30, we wrote: (…) the Fed has its own meeting this week. We could see a hawkish strike, especially that it will be the last Yellen’s meeting and she has nothing to lose. The changing composition of the policy committee could also point to a more aggressive pace of rate hikes in 20

It's Looking A Lot Like 2008 Now...
Economic and market conditions are eerily like they were in late 2007/early 2008. Remember back then? Everything was going great.  Home prices were soaring. Jobs were plentiful. The great cultural marketing machine was busy proclaiming that a new era of permanent prosperity had dawned, thanks to the steady leadership of Alan Greenspan and later Ben Bernanke. And only a small cadre of cranks, like me, was singing a different tune; warning instead that a painful reckoning in our financial system w

The Fed’s Passive Aggressive Play
Singing the song of rising rates Last week, we took a break from the theme of the consumption of capital, for our annual Outlook 2018 report. We are going to leave the topic for one more week, while we address a market move which is on everyone’s mind. Are interest rates now in a rising cycle? The Fed has been singing the song of rising rates since Yellen hinted at it in September 2014. The Fed’s first hike was December 2015. Here is a graph showing the Fed Funds Rate, which the Fed controls, wi

The Path The US Is On Is Unsustainable, Which Will INEVITABLY Lead To Social Disorder
Anyone paying even a mediocre amount of attention to what’s going in the United States is aware that the country is on a path that is unsustainable.  That unsustainability will inevitably lead to social disorder that could have the US looking a lot like Venezuela. Joe Joseph from The Daily Sheeple says that this social disorder will be the result of widening wealth gaps because the status quo will continue. There will be no changes in the input or feedback loops of society. Since the corportat

The Coming Market Crash Will Set Off The Biggest Gold Panic Buying In History
The leverage in the economic system has become so extreme; investors have no idea of the disaster that is going to take place during the next stock market crash.  The collapse of the U.S. Housing and Investment Banking Industry in 2008 and ensuing economic turmoil was a mere WARM-UP for STAGE 2 of the continued disintegration of the global financial and economic system.While the U.S. and the global economy have seemingly continued business as usual since the Fed and Central Banks stepped in and
