Ted Butler: The last great silver buy
Silver market analyst Ted Butler today examines what he maintains is JPMorganChase's dominance of both sides of the silver market in recent years, during which the investment bank shorted silver futures to drive the price down while accumulating a huge position in real metal. Butler's commentary is headlined "The Last Great Silver Buy" and it's posted at GoldSeek's companion site, SilverSeek, here -- http://silverseek.com/commentary/last-great-silver-buy-17047 -- and at 24hGold here: http://www.

What is Bitcoin Other than a $15,000 Beanie Baby?
Bitcoin is scarce. Right? That was the driving force behind another collectible that I recall. TNABC Refuses Bitcoin Let's compare the scarcity of Bitcoins to the scarcity of Beanie Babies. First, please note that it costs so much and takes so long to process bitcoin transactions, that the The North American Bitcoin Conference Stops Accepting Bitcoin for payment. Bitcoin settlement times and the fee market associated with transactions have become a hot topic these days as on-chain fees have r

Sweat, Blood and Tears
On Tuesday, crude oil hit a fresh 2018 high of $64.89, but then reversed and declined very quickly, erasing most of Friday increase. What encouraged oil bears to act and how did this decline affect the short-term picture? Yesterday, the Energy Information Administration said that U.S. oil output is expected to continue its rise to 6.55 million barrels per day (with production from shale rising by 111,000 bpd) in the coming month, which encouraged oil bears to push the price of black gold lower.

China Considers “Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries”
Just when you might begin to wonder what could possibly be the latest nail in the coffin of the U.S. dollar, news breaks that China is now publicly considering walking away from the U.S. government debt market. Last Wednesday Bloomberg reported that, “Senior government officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries.” China is currently the largest foreign holder of U.S. government debt. Which is why it would

Silver Volume Extreme as in April 2013
During yesterday’s session silver moved back and forth in a volatile manner on volume that was the highest since April 2013. There were a few volume spikes in the meantime, but none as big as what we saw yesterday. The silver market is being very loud. But are you listening? It may be hard to notice silver’s signs with all that’s happening in the USD Index and given the rally in gold stocks, but it’s definitely worth it. Let’s investigate (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com). The volum

Chinese Physical Gold Investment Demand Surges While Americans Pile Into Stock and Crypto Bubbles
Chinese demand for physical gold investment surged in the first three-quarters of 2017 while Americans ditched the shiny yellow metal for increased bets in the crypto mania and stock market bubble market.  Even though China’s Hang Seng Stock Market outperformed the Dow Jones Index last year, Chinese citizens purchased the most gold bar and coin products Q1-Q3 2017 since the same period in 2013, when they took advantage of huge gold market price selloff.According to the World Gold Council, Chines

Falling Prices Are a Good Thing
There is nothing wrong with declining prices. What signifies industrial market economy under a commodity money such as gold is that prices of goods follow a declining trend.According to Joseph Salerno,In fact, historically, the natural tendency in the industrial market economy under a commodity money such as gold has been for general prices to persistently decline as ongoing capital accumulation and advances in industrial techniques led to a continual expansion in the supplies of goods. Thus thr

World Debt Is Rising Nearly Three Times As Fast As Total Global Wealth
Some nasty dark clouds are forming on the financial horizon as total world debt is increasing nearly three times as fast as total global wealth.   But, that’s okay because no one cares about the debt, only the assets matter nowadays.  You see, as long as debts are someone else’s problem, we can add as much debt as we like… or so the market believes.Now, you don’t have to take my word for it that the market only focuses on the assets, this comes straight from the top echelons of the financial wor

Speculating Our Way to Prosperity
We have been discussing the consumption of capital. Last week, for example, we concluded with: “We see people eating more of the seed corn.” Morally, socialism is the enslavement of man to man. If you create something, they want not just to take it from you, but to render you unable to create anything else. They declare that the ideal is “from each according to his ability.” This is about the most perfect expression of envy ever put into words. By envy, we mean the hatred of the good for being t

Toward Fundamental Tax Reform (2005), edited by Alan Auerbach and Kevin Hassett
On the recommendation of a friend, I decided to read Toward Fundamental Tax Reform (2005), a book of papers edited by Alan Auerbach and Kevin Hassett. It was related to an American Enterprise Institute conference, and published by AEI. There were a lot of interesting ideas in the book, worthy of further discussion. Overall, I was struck by the level of sophistication and mastery here. I have been focused on monetary topics for quite a while now, and the norm there is endless confusion and nonsen

The Last Great Silver Buy 
In the annals of silver in the modern age, there have been two well-known instances of very large investor accumulations of the metal. First came the purchase by the Hunt Brothers and their associates in early 1980, followed by the purchase by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, 17 years later. The Hunts were said to control around 100 million ounces of actual metal (plus another 100 million ounces in long paper futures contracts), while Berkshire held as many as 129 million ounces.Now there is

Stock Selloffs Great for Gold
The stock markets have rocketed higher since Trump’s election win on hopes for big corporate tax cuts.  This extreme rally has left stocks exceedingly overvalued and overbought today.  A major selloff is long overdue and likely imminent.  When stocks inevitably roll over and mean revert lower to rebalance away euphoric sentiment, gold is the main beneficiary.  Gold investment demand soars when stocks materially slide. Two trading days before the November 2016 p

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
