Addressing Keith Weiner’s objections to “Gold’s True Fundamentals”
A 23rd June post at the TSI Blog described the model (the Gold True Fundamentals Model – GTFM) that I developed to indicate the extent to which the fundamental backdrop is bullish for gold. The GTFM is an attempt to determine a single number that incorporates the most important fundamental drivers of the gold price, where I define “fundamental driver” as something that happens in the economy or the financial markets that causes an increasing desire/urgency to own gold in some form.

Myopic Metals and Miner Miasma
In recent day and weeks, I have slowly moved to the starboard side of the "Vessel of Public Opinion" where most seasoned veterans (aka "old guys") usually wind up; that is to say that I am now officially "cynical" when it comes to the world of investing. Residing in cynicism usually has a few distinct advantages with one being the uncanny ability to have your "bullsh*t meter" on at all times while one glaring disadvantage is that you miss opportunities you might have taken when you were young(er

Dave Kranzler: Central banks try to scare the crap out of the gold market
Dave Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics today quotes an explanation for today's central bank flash crash in gold, provided by gold market analyst John Brimelow of John Brimelow's Gold Jottings report: "The day was well chosen as the Muslim world including Turkey was closed for the end of Ramadan, as was India, which has the amiable habit of observing the holidays of religious minorities." Kranzler adds: "Four a.m. Eastern time is one of the slowest, lowest-volume trading periods during any

Durable Goods: Another Bad Report, Diving Into Questionable Details
With the second quarter roughly half over (from a data delivery standpoint), we have had three reasonably good or better hard data points, and at least a dozen bad ones. Today we have another bad data point with Durable Goods Orders down 1.1%  vs an Econoday consensus of -0.4%. Moreover, April was revised lower to -0.9% from -0.7%. Aircraft had been the strength but is now the weakness for durable goods which, pulled down by a second straight downswing for commercial aircraft, fell 1.1 percent

London Trading Sees Gold Plunge as Italy's Taxpayers Rescue Failed-Bank Investors
GOLD TRADING in global wholesale center London saw prices sink at the opening of business on Monday after Italy sidestepped Eurozone rules on banking bail-outs to protect creditors of two failed lenders in the Veneto region around Venice. Trading $2 lower per ounce in Asia overnight, the gold price today then plunged $10 from $1254 to hit its lowest Dollar price since mid-May at 9am London time.

Monetary metals will follow cryptocurrencies upward, Embry tells KWN
The explosion in cryptocurrencies, Sprott Asset Management's John Embry tells King World News today, signifies the growing desire of people to escape the fiat currency system, an escape cut off for the moment by the suppression of gold and silver prices by shorting by governments and their allied investment banks. But, Embry says, this only makes the monetary metals, and especially silver, the most undervalued assets and they will follow the cryptos eventually. Embry's comments are excerpted at

Goldman Sachs ‘Discovers’ that the ‘not-so-USFed’ has Caused Most Recessions
One week ago, Deutsche Bank issued a loud warning that as a result of the aging of the current economic expansion, now the third longest in history at 32 quarters, if with the lowest average growth rate of just 2%… …. coupled with the collapse in the yield curve… … and the risk that the Fed could fall behind the inflationary curve as a result of near record low unemployment (assuming the Phillips urve still works which it doesn’t)… … the risk is growing that the Fed could hike rates right int

Palladium to underperform the PM complex
In recent weeks palladium prices have soared to levels only rarely seen. This is all the more impressive in that precious metals prices more generally have moved sideways, including palladium’s big sister platinum. There are fundamental explanations offered but we do not believe these justify sustained high prices. More probably, non-physical speculative traders have chased upward momentum of late, leaving palladium exposed to highly asymmetric downside in the event these traders choose to exit.

Gold Summer Doldrums
Gold has spent most of June grinding lower on balance, damaging sentiment and vexing traders.  Usual selling leading into the Fed’s latest rate hike contributed, but the summer doldrums are also in play.  Gold has typically suffered a seasonal lull this time of year, on waning investment demand as vacations divert attention from markets.  But these summer doldrums offer the best seasonal buying opportunities of the year. This doldrums term is very apt for gold’s

Is Bitcoin a Bubble Set to Burst?
The bitcoin price is up roughly 10X over the past two years, so it is understandable why some people believe it is overvalued. If you do a Google search on “Bitcoin Bubble,” you will find nearly 700,000 results. People love to proclaim that bitcoin is a bubble, especially those that missed the inflation of said bubble. But are they correct? Is it too late to get on board the bitcoin rocket? Only time will tell, but I suspect that the price of bitcoin will climb many multiples higher before reach

The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

The Fed Just Started Pulling the Plug on the Markets
Global equity flows might have just peaked. Bull markets are driven by new capital: you need more money from more buyers to increase buying pressure so that stock prices rise. However, it looks as though globally investors are tapped out. After months of new capital pouring into the market, global equity fund inflows slowed dramatically in the last week. And not just a little… by a LOT. Source: Sober Look This is a MAJOR warning sign to stock bulls that buying pressure is weakening in the marke

The Post “Rate-hike” Manipulations-Are Nearly Dead
In 15 years of Cartel, PPT, and Fed “watching,” I’ve not seen anything like the manipulations since Election Day – which is quite amazing, considering the powers that be were clearly aligned with the status quo fronted by Hillary Clinton, and her band of criminal bankers, corporate CEOs, globalist politicians, and “fake news” mainstream media.  Why “they” chose to double down their manipulative efforts when the “Red Swan” fought through their historic election-rigging to win the Presidency is be

Anti-Gold Propaganda Flares Up - Dave Kranzler
Predictably, after the gold price has been pushed down in the paper market by the western Central Banks – primarily the Federal Reserve – negative propaganda to outright fake news proliferates. The latest smear-job comes from London-based Capital Economics by way of Some “analyst” – Simona Gambarini – with the job title, “commodity economist,” reports that “gold’s luck has run out” with the 25 basis point nudge in rates by the Fed. She further explains that her predicted two
