What Is Key for the Price Formation of Gold?
Robert Blumen discusses some important but widely misunderstood elements acting on the gold price. He explains that frequently cited gold demand statistics have no relationship to the gold price. In addition, he explains that the annual gold mine production is of very little influence, as gold is hoarded, not consumed like other commodities. Robert Blumen was born in 1964 and gr

Your Weight in Gold
The traditional phrase “worth your weight in gold” has been used since Roman times, and is a well-known saying signifying that someone or something is very valuable, helpful, or to be treasured. But taken literally, what ‘value’ would a person be worth if they were worth their own weight in gold? For a given gold price, the answer not surprisingly depends on the person’s weight, so a more suitable and relevant question might be what value would an average person be worth if they were worth their

The Market Underestimates The Tremendous Energy Consumption By The Gold Mining Industry
While the gold mining industry reports energy as only 15-20% of its total production costs, the total amount consumed by the industry is much higher.  The market underestimates the amount of energy consumed by the gold mining industry because of the way it is listed in their financial statements.  Thus, it takes a great deal more energy to produce gold than the market realizes.Due to the complex supply chain system that we depend upon, most of the energy that is consumed in the production of goo

AS SISYPHUS FAILS GOLD WILL ASCEND
Welcome to 2018 – a year that will be the culmination of at least 105 years of mismanagement of the Western financial system by governments, central bankers and the elite. 2018 will be a year of major volatility in many markets. Stocks are now in a melt-up phase and before the major bear markets start in virtually all countries around the world, we are likely to see the final exhaustion moves which could be substantial. The year will also be marked by inflation increasing a lot faster than expec

U.S. Gold Market Switches From A Surplus In 2016 To Deficit In 2017
The U.S. gold market suffered a net deficit this year compared to a small surplus in 2016.  This was quite interesting because U.S. physical gold demand will be down considerably this year.  In 2016, total U.S. gold demand was 212 metric tons versus an estimated 150 metric tons this year.  The majority of the decline in U.S. gold demand is from the physical bar and coin sector that is down 56% in the first three quarters of 2017 compared to the same period last year.So, why will the U.S. gold ma

The 5 Largest Gold Nuggets that Still Exist
Throughout gold rush and gold mining history, the discovery of a large gold nugget is a phenomenon which always causes excitement throughout a mining community as well as capturing the wider public's imagination. It has probably something to do with so much gold being found at the same time, often with relative ease. Gold nuggets can be found in alluvial deposits (sediments formed by water movement) or in other placer deposits (formed by other movement), but gold nuggets can also be found in or
