Bullion Star: Why Singapore is so great for gold investors
Bullion Star, headquartered in Singapore, today expounds on the city-state's great advantages for gold investors. Bullion Star writes: "Apart from the goods-and-services tax exemption on investment precious metals, there are a number of other jurisdictional advantages that have supported the growth of Singapore as a gold trading and storage hub and that reinforce the logic for buying gold and storing gold in Singapore. "In Singapore, there are no other taxes when buying gold, silver, or other

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

Tactics For The Gold Bull Era
Gold surged higher on Friday. Then it gave all the gains back yesterday. Looking beyond this short-term noise, gold is not an exciting market right now. What could make that change? Gold is trading in a rough sideways trend with an upside bias. This bias continues to strengthen, albeit very slowly. The technical action reflects the fundamentals and liquidity flows and clearly, patience. I jokingly refer to the SPDR fund as “Spider Man”. Chindian demand is decent, but Spider Man looks like

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q3’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued. Four times a year publicly-traded compan

Financial crisis dynamics, the ‘shadow’ gold demand, and Mene
The study of financial crises is as old as the economics discipline itself. One of the most prominent theorists of financial crises ever to hold a senior Federal Reserve policy position was John Exter, vice-president of the New York Federal Reserve during the 1950s. Several years ago I co-wrote a series of essays on Exter’s theories together with his sonin- law, Barry Downs. In this paper, building on Exter’s work, including his eponymous ‘pyramid’, I introduce a new ‘hourglass’ framework for un

China Gold Import Jan-Sep 777t. Who’s Supplying
While the gold price is slowly crawling upward in the shadow of the current cryptocurrency boom, China continues to import huge tonnages of the yellow metal. As usual, Chinese investors bought on the price dips in the past quarters, steadfastly accumulating for a rainy day. The Chinese appear to be price sensitive regarding gold, as was mentioned in the most recent World Gold Council Demand Trends report, and can also be observed by Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) premiums – going up when the gold

Physical gold demand a bright spot in Q3
Global gold demand disappointed in Q3 2017 according to the World Gold Council’s latest Gold Demand Trends, but physical buyers bucked the trend with a solid increase in investment coin and bar purchases. At 915 tonnes, total demand fell 9% compared the same period last year, with particular weakness seen in Indian jewellery volumes. Stalling inflows into gold-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) also negatively impacted Q3 figures, the report’s authors said. Reasons cited for slowing ETF deposi

Gold investors hold their nerve while stock markets fly
LONDON -- Gold’s resilience in the face of soaring equities and a dramatic fall in demand this year points to underlying confidence in the metal among investors unconvinced by this autumn's scorching stock market rally. Bullion's price has barely budged as stocks soared to record high after record high since mid-October and, with a month and a half to go, is on track to post its narrowest trading range of any year since 2005. Physical gold demand, meanwhile, hit an eight-year low in the third q

Gold Investment Stalled
Gold has largely been drifting sideways for the better part of a couple months now, sapping enthusiasm.  Gold investment demand has stalled due to extreme stock-market euphoria.  Investors aren’t interested in alternative investments led by gold when stocks seemingly do nothing but rally indefinitely.  But once stock-market volatility inevitably returns, so will gold investment demand which fuels major gold uplegs.

Third-quarter gold demand slides to eight-year low, World Gold Council says
LONDON -- Gold demand slid to its lowest in eight years in the last quarter as jewelry buying fell and inflows into bullion-backed exchange traded funds dried up, data from the World Gold Council showed today. Overall demand fell 9 percent to 915 tonnes, its weakest since the third quarter of 2009, the WGC said. That pattern is likely to feed through to the full year, with the WGC forecasting annual demand of just 3,900-4,000 tonnes, compared to 4,347 tonnes in 2016. Gold demand has not been bel

Gold Speculators Refuse To Give Up; Another Drop Likely - John Rubino

Here’s an overview of the dynamic from Adam Hamilton of Zeal Intelligence: Seasonality is the tendency for prices to exhibit recurring patterns at certain times during the calendar year.

Gold Stocks’ Winter Rally 2
The gold miners’ stocks have largely ground sideways this year, consolidating their massive 2016 gains.  That lackluster trading action, along with vexing underperformance relative to gold, has left gold stocks deeply out of favor.  But these uninspiring technicals and resulting bearish sentiment should soon shift.  The gold stocks are just now entering their strongest seasonal rally of the year, the super-bullish winter rally. Gold-stock performance is highly
