The Daily Market Report: Gold Firms as Fed and ECB Lean Dovish
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-17-17 Gold remains generally well bid after once again nearing the high for the year at 1296.06 in earlier trade. Last week’s high at 1292.05 provides an intervening barrier. The yellow metal rebounded strongly after the FOMC minutes from the July meeting revealed heightened concern over dimming inflation prospects. Former Fed insider Danielle DiMartino-Booth categorizes the minutes as “very dovish,” which further erodes the prospects for another rate hike this year. Ms. D

A Midsummer Night's Dream: Buy Precious Metals
Each year since 1987, I have always used the final two weeks of the month of August as a shopping period in a manner not unlike the “Back-to-School” kind only the wares I seek are junior precious metals stocks as opposed to school uniforms, pens, and books. It began after I had been speaking with one of the finest brokers I had ever had the opportunity to know, Edmonton’s late George Milton, whose claim to fame was being the early financier for Bre-X (Not to worry, he and the bulk of his clients

China, Gold and the US Dollar...
The Neocon – Zionist drive for world domination is set to be brought to a screeching halt by something as simple as GOLD. This article is not politically motivated – the writer has no political agenda or affiliation – and the motivation for producing it is to enable you to understand the pivotal role that gold will play in thwarting the Empire’s imperialist ambitions, and how this means that the price of gold – and silver – will skyrocket, and sooner than many think possible. When you know that

Do Seasonal Adjustments Help Identify Business Cycles?
Various statistics that governments produce on a regular basis carry the label "seasonally adjusted". What is the meaning of this label? According to popular thinking the data that is observed over time (labelled as time series) is determined by four factors, which are:The trend factorThe cyclical factorThe seasonal factorThe irregular factorIt is accepted that the trend determines the general direction of the data over time, while the cyclical factor causes movements that are related to the bus

June FOMC Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June 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? Well, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. But the most important discussion concerned three other issues. First, several participants noted uncertainty about the future course of the

You Are Being Lied To About “Low” Gold Demand 
I don’t like to use inflammatory language, such as the title of this article, but the message from the mainstream media about gold demand is a lie misleading.Yes, coin purchases in North America are down compared to last year (a record-setting year, by the way). It’s been soft at a few other Mints as well, such as Perth.But Eagle and Kangaroo purchases aren’t the whole market. You and I don’t buy paper gold products, for example, but throw in demand from this part of the industry and a very diff

Those who most need monetary metals are least interested, Embry says
Interviewed today by King World News, Sprott Asset Management's John Embry marvels at the lack of interest of Americans in the monetary metals, since he thinks they will need the metals most. "Social cohesion appears to be breaking down" in the United States, Embry says. "This is occurring before the real economic and financial problems that will cripple America have unfolded. I am extremely uncomfortable with what might occur in the face of real economic hardship, with a heavily armed and angry

Bitcoin Has No Yield, but Gold Does
Last week I said: It is commonly accepted to say the dollar is “printed”, but we can see from this line of thinking it is really borrowed. There is a real borrower on the other side of the transaction, and that borrower has powerful motivations to keep paying to service the debt. Bitcoin has no backing. Bitcoin is created out of thin air, the way people say of the dollar. The quantity of bitcoins created may be strictly limited by Satoshi’s design. We referred to the dollar as being borrowed

Absurd Inflation Discussion by Fed Jackasses
Minutes of the July 25-26 FOMC Meeting show internal concern over the Fed’s inability to hit 2% inflation. I counted 89 instances of “inflation” and 79 instances of “2”. As sub-categories of 2, there were 27 instances of “2 percent” and eight instances of “below 2”. “Longer” came up 26 times. “Transitory”, a previous standout, only came up twice. “Idiosyncratic” a new buzzword courtesy of the Cleveland Fed, came up once. Transitory Beyond 2017, the forecast was little revised from the previou

The Daily Market Report: Gold Consolidates Awaiting FOMC Minutes
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-16-17 Gold is consolidating within yesterday’s range, awaiting the FOMC minutes from July’s Fed confab. Earlier tests of the downside were limited and short-lived and the yellow metal is now trading modestly higher on the day. It will be interesting to see if the level of concern about waning inflation pressures was elevated beyond that which was expressed in the July policy statement. I suspect that the minutes will do nothing to mitigate the expectation that the Fed is o

  Can a government surplus cause the economy to tank?
According to the article linked HERE, if the US or the Australian or the UK government repaid all of its debt, the economy would tank. The article contains such a large number of factual errors and such a copious amount of nonsense that completely debunking it would take far more time than I’m prepared to spend, so in this post I’ll only deal with a few of the flaws. To begin, the article points out that US government surpluses have, in the past, often been followed by depressions or recessions,

Fanciful Fed Follies
Having just returned from boating in northern Georgian Bay and an area called The North Channel, I have been by and large out of contact with gold and silver prices since July 22 and am delighted to see that prices have stabilized after dipping in late Spring to under $1,210. Over the past month, the global stock markets have all danced around all-time highs with Dr. Copper forging a break-out above the $2.90 level, marking the highest close in two years. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos briefly became the

The Return of Sound Money
On Sunday evening, August 15, 1971, President Nixon told the American people the U.S. would “suspend temporarily the convertibility of the dollar into gold or other reserve assets” as a means of defending the dollar against “the speculators.”  This was one part of his New Economic Policy, a phrase borrowed from communist Vladimir Lenin, which included a 90-day freeze on prices and wages, and a 10 percent tax on imports.  Gary North points out that Barron’s editor Robert Bleiberg, in a 1974 speec

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats on Heightened Risk Appetite, but Finds Support
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-15-17 Gold came under additional corrective pressure in early U.S. trading, weighed by a further easing of geopolitical tensions, along with some better than expected U.S. economic data. While the yellow metal set new lows for the week, buying interest resurfaced well ahead of last week’s low. While North Korea may have walked back an imminent threat to Guam, I don’t believe anyone really thinks that the Korean crisis has been resolved. “Though North Korea is signaling its

THE FIRST BUBBLE HAS ARRIVED
Some of you probably remember me saying that the final vertical phase of a bubble is characterized by price rising at least 100% or more in a year or less. Bitcoin is clearly in the final vertical phase of its bubble. It’s now becoming more and more dangerous every day. At some point you just have to say enough is enough, get out, and stay out so you don’t get caught when the bubble pops and price comes crashing back to earth. Folks its not different this time.

Why The Bitcoin Price Could Top $1 Million
The price of Bitcoin made a new record high above $4,300 today and is now up roughly 350% year to date or 643% over the past 12 months. If you add in the free Bitcoin Cash distributed to Bitcoin holders, the current value of Bitcoin is closer to $4,600. In this article, I will lay out the case for why a Bitcoin price of $1 million is not as outlandish as it appears at first blush. While some people are saying it could hit this level by 2030, I think we could see the Bitcoin price reach $1 milli
