History Says Global Debt Levels Will Lead to Another Crisis
It may feel like we’ll escape a debt crisis since, well, the world hasn’t ended in spite of runaway debt levels. Some of us hard money people feel like we’re taking crazy pills; how the heck can debt be so out of control, so completely unpayable, and yet the financial system keeps chugging along as if nothing’s wrong?Well, history has a message for us: the current calm won’t last forever, because there is a direct link between government debt levels and the number of financial crises that occur.

The Central Planners Lullaby
We seem to be in a lull in market moving news, or is it more the gyrations within the market that have been put to sleep?  The question offers an implication that the exchanges and human emotions “used” to be connected, which in the past, these major events would have caused market fluctuations in price. It is most famously known as market volatility. We have mentioned previously how the damages to an entire string of islands and flooded land masses seem to mean nothing to the markets, but are t

Gold Prices Subdued Despite Re-emerged Geopolitical Tensions and Indian Festivals
GOLD PRICES extended their fall on Tuesday morning in London as the Dollar continued to rise amid speculation off potential new Fed chief and continuing geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and the Korean peninsula, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold slid to $1288 after touching a 3-week high in the previous session before falling through the key level of $1300 per ounce. Silver tracked gold and dropped to $17.08 per ounce after it had already started fa

Lithium Supercycle
The truth, in regards to the world’s mineral resources, is that we in the western developed countries are usually not in control of supply. “The spectre of resource insecurity has come back with a vengeance. The world is undergoing a period of intensified resource stress, driven in part by the scale and speed of demand growth from emerging economies and a decade of tight commodity markets. Poorly designed and short-sighted policies are also making things worse, not better. Whether or not resou

LBMA 2017: Spain, Silver and 'Lower Forever'
Precious metals history and macro-outlook from LBMA conference... LITTLE so far on precious metals prices or supply and demand at LBMA 2017 here in Barcelona, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Not directly at least. But the market itself cares little about price direction. The refiners, carriers, vaulters, dealers, brokers and bankers meeting at the London Bullion Market Association's annual conference focus instead on volumes, margin and – most of all – get

  The Gold-Backed-Oil-Yuan Futures Contract Myth
On September 1, 2017, the Nikkei Asian Review published an article titled, “China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold”, written by Damon Evans. Just below the headline in the introduction it states, “China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry”. Not long after the Nikkei piece was released ‘the story’ was widely copied in sensational analyses throughout t

Zimbabwe Inflates, Again…
In November 2008, Zimbabwe experienced the second highest recorded inflation rate in history, and with that, it entered the Hanke-Krus World Hyperinflation Table. That’s when the annual inflation rate reached a peak of 89.7 sextillion (10^21) percent (see table below). At this point, prices were doubling every 24.7 hours. During Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation episode (2007-2008), the Reserve Bank of Zim

A Free Market for Goods, Services, and Money

Major Subject: Monetary Science. Abstract A free market is composed of people who produce and trade the products of their efforts in exchange for the products of others.

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Yuan and Gold
In the previous editions of the Market Overview, we have already analyzed the relationship between gold and some major world currencies, such as the U.S. dollar, the euro, or the Japanese yen. But what is the link between the Chinese yuan (officially: renminbi) and the yellow metal? Let’s check it out. Chart 1: The USD/CNY exchange rate (red line, right axis) and the price of gold (yellow line, left axis, London P.M. Fix) from January 1981 to September 2017. As one can see in the chart above,

What If AMZN Is Getting Second Wind?
Today’s bullish surge was strongly impulsive on the hourly chart (see inset), surpassing no fewer than four prior peaks, three of them ‘external’. From a technical standpoint it transformed a bearish head-and-shoulders formation that has been taking shape since May into something else — presumably a consolidation pattern with enough energy to push the stock above the all-time high at 1083.31 recorded in late July. We shall soon see. Of course, if the bull market in AMZN is about to get second wi

FOMC Minutes from September 2017 Meeting and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s September meeting were released. What do they say about the Fed’s stance and what do they mean for the gold market? How can we summarize the recent FOMC minutes? As earlier this year, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. The U.S. central bankers also noted that the economic impact of recent hurricanes would only be short-lived. But the mos

More New SP 500 Record Highs Or Topping Action?
Briefly:Intraday trade: Our yesterday's intraday trading outlook was bearish. It proved wrong because the S&P 500 index gained 0.2% again. However, the index continued to trade within relatively narrow intraday trading range. The market may retrace some of its recent rally today, as investors continue taking short-term profits off the table. Therefore, intraday short position is favored again. Stop-loss is at the level of 2,565 and potential profit target is at 2,530 (S&P 500 index).Our intraday

The GOLD PRICE touched 2-week highs for Dollar and Euro investors on Tuesday, extending the metal's rally from Friday's 8-week low to 2.4% as world stock markets slipped further from last week's new record high.

Catalan Declaration of Independence and Gold
Yesterday, Catalan leaders signed a declaration of independence. What does it mean for the gold market? So it really happened. On Tuesday, the Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont, signed a document declaring Catalonia’s independence from Spain. He also delivered a speech in the regional parliament saying that the recent referendum gave his government the mandate to create a sovereign state: “I assume the mandate that Catalonia should become an independent state in the form of a republic.” (By t

Silver + Gold Jump as China Returns from Holidays, N.Korea + Catalonia Tensions 'Support' After Comex Bulls Retreat
GOLD and SILVER edged higher against a falling Dollar in Asian and London trade Monday, each gaining half-a-per-cent after traders in world No.1 consumer country China returned from national holidays. Gold prices at one point touched $1284 per ounce, some 1.9% above Friday's fresh 8-week low, as the US currency retreated against major rivals and world stock markets fell for a second day from last week's fresh all-time record highs.

Swinging for the Fences in Comex Gold
I am tracking a single-contact position with a cost basis that has been reduced by profit-taking to 1204.80. At a current price of 1293.10, that would imply a theoretical gain so far of nearly $9000. As is my custom, I track positions only when subscribers have reported initiating trades with actual money, based on explicit recommendations I have made, or on precise reversal targets that I’ve calculated using the Hidden Pivot Method. We are swinging for the fences with one contract that remains
