Mnuchin comment surprises markets, turns dollar decline into 'one-way bet'
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's comment that a weak dollar is good for the country accelerated a decline in the currency and fed fears in a market already speculating that White House may make the dollar less attractive for the longer term. ... Mnuchin's comments echo statements by President Donald Trump, who famously helped turn a market trend of a stronger dollar last January when he said, prior to his inauguration, that the dollar was "too strong" and that U.S. companies can't compete bec

Amazon "Basics" Well Beyond the Basics: World Domination
Amazon keeps expanding its market share. Its "Basics" program and Amazon "Prime" explain why. Time to bust up Amazon?Quartz reports AmazonBasics is Well Beyond the Basics. Amazon launched a house brand, called AmazonBasics, in 2009. It was originally a way for Amazon to sell low-cost, generic versions of electronics accessories, like cables and plugs. Over time, Amazon has expanded its offerings dramatically, to the point where it’s difficult to see how the brand still refers to “basic” product

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

Richard Mills - Ahead of the Herd
Only Political Dividing Line Left - Roots Based Politics Because of the rise of Globalism in the late 20th century the U.S. and Western Europe have recently seen stirrings of nationalist awakenings. Terrorism, turmoil in the Middle East and waves of Muslim refugees have fueled the trend. Wikipedia says this about Nationalism; “a nation should govern itself, free from unwanted outside interference, and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national iden

“In truth, however, nothing is inevitable and very little is new. And tech is no more the root of the problem than are trade or globalization. Many of our most vaunted innovations are simply methods -- electronic or otherwise -- of pulling off some age-old profit-maximizing maneuver by new and unregulated means.” Thomas Frank “It is my purpose, as one who lived and acted in these days, first to show how easily the tragedy of the Second World War could have been prevented; how the malice of t

The Daily Market Report: Gold Rebounds Intraday, But Remains Defensive
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/07-05-17 Gold has regained some ground intraday, but remains generally defensive after getting hit hard in thin holiday trading earlier in the week. Focus is now on the FOMC minutes from the June meeting, which come out at 2:00ET. Gold had proven to be quite resilient in the face of heightened hawkishness from global central bankers, and it was only heavy selling in the paper market during thin conditions that was able to push the yellow metal lower. It feels like policymaker

Gold’s Pricing Power Moving East - Part 2
China excluded from the global gold price or arbitrage includes it?China is unhappy that gold prices should be driven by U.S. and dollar concerns. But many state that because there is no free flow of gold in and out of China, China will remain a parochial market, not integrated into the global gold market. Nothing is now further from the truth.The author has worked with successful arbitrageurs in London in the past, so we can clearly see that through the London and Shanghai Gold Exchanges via bu

Gold’s Pricing Power Moving East – Part 1
How is the gold price made?When we hear commentary on why the gold price has moved, we usually hear of U.S. economic or political factors and a move in the U.S. Dollar. Most times these do not precipitate the buying of physical gold.What they do do, is to spur the buying or selling of futures or Options on the COMEX gold market. Many commentators attribute moves in the physical gold price to moves on COMEX.But this link is tenuous, as COMEX does not [except for a maximum of 5% and minimum of 1%

Trump is Like the Weather: Wait a Day and His Foreign Policy Position Will Change
Just days after Trump backed away from a trade war with China, the Trump administration launched a National-Security Probe on Steel Imports. For good measure, Trump blasted Canada over its dairy product policy. The Trump administration has opened a wide-ranging probe into whether to curb steel imports in the name of national security, ramping up its campaign to give a more economic nationalist tinge to American trade policy. “Steel is critical to both our economy and our military,” President Do

Market Euphoria, China's Dumping of Treasuries Ignite Recession Concerns
Citing the uncertainty caused by China dumping U.S. Treasuries, an impending debt ceiling crisis, the upcoming French elections, and more, Wealth Research Group editor Lior Gantz advises investors to make sure their portfolios are diversified. Each of the last five major U.S. recessions were preceded by a shrinking global trade as a percentage of GDP. Peak globalization might go down in history as May 7, with the French elections, and it could signal

Economic Globalization Is Not Political Globalization
Globalization has fallen into disrepute. More and more people are rejecting it outright as unfair and as a source of all sorts of evil — including economic crises and migration.This kind of blanket condemnation of globalization however is a huge problem. The reason for this becomes apparent if one considers the fact that globalization has two dimensions, an economic and a political one.Economic globalization is synonymous with the cross-border division of labor. Today, no country produces solely

“Italeave” Odds Increase: Rebellion in Italy, Matteo Renzi’s PD Party to Split
The Financial Times reports on the Rebellion that Threatens to Split Italy’s Democratic Party. Eurointelligence goes one further and suggests it’s a done deal, not just a threat. The immediate impact would be a loss of 6 percentage points, or more, support for PD, putting Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement solidly in the lead. In national polls, the PD is only slightly ahead of the Five Star Movement, an anti-establishment party which has called for a referendum on the euro. Any PD defection co

  Carnage of the Middle Class 
In President Donald J. Trump's inaugural address he promised, "This American carnage stops right here and stops right now." And immediately liberals and the MSM took umbrage to his use of the word carnage, which means the slaughter of a large number of people, claiming it was just too dark a description for America. Maybe so. However, in a recent Bloomberg commentary, Justin Fox cites some sobering statistics that support Trump's statement. While the overall murder rate for the nation
