GOLD PRICES cut this year's gain below 9% for US Dollar investors in London trade Thursday morning, dropping to new 4-month lows beneath $1255 per ounce as crypto-currency Bitcoin surged past $15,000 for a 2017 gain of 1,456%. Commodities today slipped overall after Wall Street stock markets closed lower overnight for the fourth session running from last week's new record highs. Copper steadied

Gold Price Slips Near 'Significant Support' as World Warns Trump on Israel Embassy, Brexit Talks Stall
GOLD PRICES slipped near 1-month lows against a rising US Dollar in London trade on Tuesday, drifting back to $1273 per ounce as world stock markets followed Wall Street lower after Monday's drop. Commodities fell as major government bond prices edged longer-term interest rates higher. "Gold should encounter significant support at $1269/67 and a rebound should follow once these levels are met,"

Gold: $1400 Is The Key
The big picture for gold continues to strengthen. In 2016 gold began the year at about $1100, soared $300 an ounce to about $1400, but then it gave back about $250, and ended the year at about $1150 with only a $50 gain. That price action fit perfectly with my 2014 – 2017 theme of “rough sideways action, initially with a downside bias that develops into an upside bias”. The year 2018 should see solid Chindian demand, a reversal in US money velocity, and a peak in mine supply. That should push

Gold Prices Recover as India, China Premiums Rise But GLD Flat After Institutional Jump
GOLD PRICES recovered two-thirds of this week's earlier 1.3% drop against the Dollar on Wednesday, trading up to $1286 per ounce as Asian demand edged premiums in China and India higher, and world stock markets rose yet again. Government bond prices sat tight, keeping 10-year US Treasury yields unchanged at 2.36%, in the middle of the last month's range. Crypto-currency Bitcoin slipped 2.0% from

  Brexit, Gold and Harold Wilson's 'Pound in Your Pocket', 50 Years On
How the 1967 devaluation of Sterling killed the Gold Standard... THIS WEEKEND will mark 50 years since Harold Wilson's infamous devaluation of Sterling, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault.

Koos Jansen: Who is supplying China's gold? Apparently everybody
Gold researcher Koos Jansen today reviews gold imports into China and concludes: "Until new evidence shows up my best guess is that China net imported 777 tonnes in the first nine months of 2017, sourced from all corners of the world: the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, Switzerland, the United States, Middle East, and the Philippines. It seems Chinese banks are active all over the world looking to buy gold on the dips, snapping up physical metal when the time is right." Jansen's analysi

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

Precious Metals: Patience Is Golden
Without growth in Western gold ETF holdings, the “decent but not spectacular” demand from China and India is not strong enough to move the gold price higher. The SPDR (GLD-nyse) fund gold holdings currently sit at about 843 tonnes. There has been very little change in the total tonnage for several months. That’s neutral for the gold price. Governments don’t like their citizens to own much gold. Restrictions they impose (like India’s import duty as a recent example) dampen demand enough so th

Gold And Silver: Something Different Is Occurring - Dave Kranzler
JP Morgan, at least according to the daily Comex warehouse report, added over half a million ozs of silver to its “historic” stash of silver at the Comex: TF Metals Report. It would be even more interesting to see an actual independent accounting of that specific metal which would track the serial numbers on the bars to the legal owner of title. I’ve been hedged in my mining stock portfolio since early September. The signal for me to hedge is the reliable Comex bank “net short” posi

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.

The upcoming increase in interest rates
Last week, both Janet Yellen of the Fed and Mark Carney of the Bank of England prepared financial markets for interest rate increases. The working assumption should be that this was coordinated, and that both the ECB and the Bank of Japan must be considering similar moves.Central banks coordinate their monetary policies as much as possible, which is why we can take the view we are about to embark on a new policy phase of higher interest rates. The intention of this new phase must be to normalise

  This is how China moves the world to a gold standard!
We have watched for years as China grew in strength economically, financially and militarily. They have pre positioned themselves by making trade deals, setting up credit facilities and even an alternative clearing system to the West’s “SWIFT”. We also know China has been gobbling up global mine supply of gold for going on 10 years now. As I’ve written in the past, just using the back of a napkin, it can be surmised they now have hoarded 20,000 tons or more compared to the “supposed” 8,133 tons

China Catalyst To Send Gold Over $10,000 Per Ounce?
Jim Rickards is on record forecasting $10,000 gold. But is China about to provide the catalyst to send gold even higher? And by how much? Today, we fare forth in the spirit of speculation… follow facts down strange roads… and arrive at a destination stranger still… China — the world’s largest oil importer — struck lightning through international markets recently. According to the Nikkei Asian Review, China has plans to buy imported oil with yuan instead of dollars. Exporters could then exchange

  Prospects for Gold II
In my previous article, "My Views Regarding Prospects for Gold", published on September 21, I addressed the consequences of the Chinese scheme "to be launched formally by the end of the year, by means of which exporters of oil to China will accept the Chinese currency, the Yuan, in payment for oil; for this deal, the Chinese have added an incentive: the Yuan received by the oil exporters will be exchangeable for gold. This gold will be "sourced", i.e. "purchased" outside of China, for the oil ex
