Gold: Texbook Pullback In Play
Gold’s recent rally from the $1268 area lows has stalled, and the reasons for that are both fundamental and technical. This is the daily gold chart. Gold fell about $100 from the $1362 area highs as seasonally soft Chinese buying was accompanied by a collapse in Indian demand. That collapse was caused by the “Know Your Client” rule imposed by the government on gold jewellery purchases. The price decline was exacerbated by the “Golden Week” holiday in China. Also, the Chinese government chop

Falling Productivity of Debt
Last week, we discussed the ongoing fall of dividend, and especially earnings, yields. This Report is not a stock letter, and we make no stock market predictions. We talk about this phenomenon to make a different point. The discount rate has fallen to a very low level indeed. Discount in stocks is how you assess the present-day value of earnings to occur in the future. For example, if the discount rate is 10%, then a dollar of earnings per share at Acme Piping next year is worth $0.90 today. At

The Central Planners Lullaby
We seem to be in a lull in market moving news, or is it more the gyrations within the market that have been put to sleep?  The question offers an implication that the exchanges and human emotions “used” to be connected, which in the past, these major events would have caused market fluctuations in price. It is most famously known as market volatility. We have mentioned previously how the damages to an entire string of islands and flooded land masses seem to mean nothing to the markets, but are t

Gold's Technical Line Of Concern
The traditional post jobs report rally for gold is in full swing. This is the daily gold chart. Gold arrived at a key Fibonacci line at about $1268 as the US jobs report was released. The dollar has stalled against the yen, and that’s also good news for gold. Gold tends to stage great rallies in the days following the jobs report, and this rally is a particularly interesting one. Here’s why: First, Trump has ratcheted up his “hawk talk” in regards to North Korea and Iran. He’s scheduled to

Print till it Dies
The US Dollar has had a wonderful run in its life time. Not too many fiat currencies have had the ability to sustain its usage for as long as this mighty experiment has and all who have reported on this instrument of trade are pretty much pointing to the same outcome that it can’t last much longer. Today, the US Dollar trade sits at 93.55 down 8.6 points in the early morning on this Columbus Day. Not too long ago the dollar broke thru a multiyear downside target of 91.88 which originally happene

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.

SP 500 At Record High But Will Stocks Continue Even Higher?
Briefly:Intraday trade: Our Friday's intraday trading outlook was bearish. It proved partly wrong because the S&P 500 index remained within relatively narrow intraday trading range. Overall, it lost 0.1%. The index may retrace some of its recent rally today, as investors will likely continue taking short-term profits off the table. Therefore, intraday short position is favored. Stop-loss is at the level of 2,565 and potential profit target is at 2,530 (S&P 500 index).Our intraday outlook is bear

Tariffs on Washing Machines Coming Up: Let’s Tax the Sun and the Rain Too
Whirpool bitched to the Trump administration and the International Trade Commission about unfair pricing on Samsung and LG-brand washing machines. The ITC panel ruled U.S. washing machine makers hurt by South Korean imports, so your price is guaranteed to go up. The U.S. International Trade Commission on Thursday found that imports of large residential washing machines were harming domestic producers, in a major step the imposition of duties or quotas on foreign-made Samsung- and LG-brand wash

Getting Schooled in Freedom
Hello Silver and Gold holders. I truly appreciate the chance to write for Miles Franklin and hope that you read, learn, and enjoy, the viewpoints from the new writers in our tribe. No one individual has it all down but as a team, we’re able to work thru the articles and news (so called) being pummeled out there by media groups failing at every turn to report anything factual within the financial arenas as well as the Middle American view. This truly is the topic of freedom in all its aspects and

Tax The Rich
Even though I have said this before apparently no one was listening so I have to say it again* because every time a new tax reform bill is proposed, the same clichés are trotted out and most of them are wrong. The purveyors of these clichés know they are wrong but they don’t care because they are trying to manipulate you to their ends. And, people fall for them. Here is what the polls say about what Americans think about taxes (Gallup, Pew Research): 51% think they arepaying too muchin taxes, e

Gold Prices Rise for UK + Euro Investors as Catalan Banks Look for Exit, Hapless May Risks Leadership
GOLD PRICES slipped against a rising US Dollar in London trade Thursday, cutting the metal's recent losses in terms of other currencies such as the Euro as political tensions rose in the UK and Spain. Ahead of Friday's official monthly jobs estimate, the Dollar price of gold held around $1275 per ounce as new data showed claims for jobless benefits rising less than analysts forecast last week. T

Gold: Demand Vacuum Has Silver Lining
Since I issued my “book profits now” call for gold several weeks ago, the price has declined relentlessly from the $1360 area high. Investors want to know if I see signs that a fresh rally could begin. The good news is that gold/silver stocks and silver bullion look better than gold bullion. Some stocks are rallying strongly while gold oozes lower. This is the main problem for gold right now; a collapse in Indian market demand. Prime Minister Modi has acted more like Prime Minister Napoleon

Are the US Markets setting up for an Early October Surprise?
Many analysts have recently warned that the US markets are setting up for a potentially massive correction, 40~70% some warn.  Our own analysis has shown massive market cycles that correlate with an October market correction.  Our VIX cycle analysis indicates that we should be expecting a spike in the VIX right now (within the next 3~4 days).  What does all this mean in reality for the average investor? As investors, we have to determine the amount of risk compared to the amount of potential gai

"While the largest banks can correctly claim that they have offloaded risky assets and bolstered the amount of cash on their balance sheets over the last decade, their business model has become fundamentally disconnected from the very people and entities it was designed to serve. Small community banks, which make up only 13 percent of all banking assets, do nearly half of all lending to small businesses. Big banks are about deal making. They serve mostly themselves, existing as the middle of t

Fed's 'Imprudent, Misguided' Yellen Knocks Gold Bullion to 5-Week Low as Chinese Jewelry Demand Falls
GOLD BULLION prices sank against a surging US Dollar on Wednesday in London, trading down towards 5-week lows beneath $1285 per ounce after Federal Reserve boss Janet Yellen said strong jobs data make raising rates more urgent. The Dollar jumped to its highest level versus the single-currency Euro since mid-August at $1.17, and reached mid-July levels against the Japanese Yen at ¥113. Global sto

Venezuelan Women Turn To Prostitution To Afford Food
All twelve women who work at the “Show Malilo Night Club” brothel in Arauca, Colombia are from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s socialist economic crisis continues, many Venezuelan women have turned to the sex trade in neighboring Colombia to eat and provide for their families. “We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” brothel owner Gabriel Sánchez said of the women who sell their bodies for $25 an hour.  “All of them showed up with their degrees in
