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.

GE’s Pension Time Bomb: Shortfall $31 Billion and Rising
GE has the largest pension shortfall in the S&P 500. It’s a $31 Billion Balance Sheet Hole That Keeps Growing. At $31 billion, GE’s pension shortfall is the biggest among S&P 500 companies and 50 percent greater than any other corporation in the U.S. It’s a deficit that has swelled in recent years as Immelt spent more than $45 billion on share buybacks to win over Wall Street and pacify activists like Nelson Peltz. In the last two years, GE spent little more than $2 billion on total pension con

Gold’s True Fundamentals
To paraphrase Jim Grant, gold’s perceived value in US$ terms is the reciprocal of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. Consequently, what I refer to as gold’s true fundamentals are measures of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. I’ve been covering these fundamental drivers of the gold price in TSI commentaries for almost 17 years. It doesn’t seem that long, but time flies when you’re having fun. No

The Daily Market Report: Gold Firms Modestly
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-22-17 Gold is modestly higher, having stabilized above the 1241.30/1235.82 support zone (trendline/200-day moving average). Some additional upside follow-through above the 1261.78 retracement level would be encouraging and help confirm that the pattern of higher-highs and higher-lows that has been evident so far this year, is still intact. The Senate rolled out their secret healthcare reform legislation this morning. The accompanying headlines immediately indicated it did

Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy
Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

At least the gold coins under your mattress won't do this while you sleep
By Arjun Kharpal CNBC, New York Thursday, June 22, 2017 The price of ethereum crashed as low as 10 cents from around $319 in about a second on the GDAX cryptocurrency exchange on Wednesday, a move that is being blamed on a "multimillion dollar market sell" order. Ethereum is an alternative digital currency to bitcoin and had been trading as high as $352 on Wednesday. It has since rebounded from its flash-crash lows to trade to about $325 on the GDAX exchange. According to industry and price trac

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

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 Kitco.com. 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

One striking chart suggests the Fed is making a big mistake
BusinessInsider/Pedro Nicolaci da Costa/06-22-17 The Federal Reserve keeps telling the bond market it wants interest rates to move higher, but traders aren’t listening. That suggests investors don’t believe the Fed’s justification for interest rate increases, which are predicated not only on recent economic improvement but also on a continued bright outlook. One startling chart from Societe Generale’s Albert Edwards illustrates the Fed’s dilemma. Two-year notes are historically the maturity that

Junk Bonds Signal the Great Global Debt Binge Is Coming to an End
The market has gone absolutely nowhere for 15 weeks now. That is not a typo, nor am I bearing overly negative. Since the end of February, when President Trump last tweeted that he had big plans for the economy, the S&P 500 is up a total of just 1.6% or roughly 39 points. And THIS is the raging bull market that everyone is so crazy about? A market in which it took almost FOUR months for stocks to eek out a 1.6% gain? Meanwhile against this backdrop of unhinged bullishness, the credit markets are

Left wing, ...
One of the saddest things about Britain’s recent general election was the level of ignorance displayed by all parties on the broad subject of political economics. I use the term to include both political philosophy and pure economic theory.Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists seem to think free markets are right-wing. The Conservatives appear to have lost all compass, most government ministers believing free markets without government regulation are chaotic, with unscrupul

A Rigged Game 
76 years ago, “Joltin’ Joe” DiMaggio was in the middle of the hitting streak of streaks that would come to 56 consecutive games and which has remained a major league baseball record to this day. That season (1941), the Yankee Clipper would bat .408 during the epic streak or more than 4 hits for every 10 at bats. Ted Williams, of the Boston Red Sox, had the highest batting average in 1941, hitting .406 for the entire season. What would you say if I told you that a batter had hit 1.000 for an enti

Only Gold Lasts Forever
This current state of play won’t last forever. Only Gold lasts forever Some days it can feel a little rough being a gold investor. In today’s article Dominic Frisby is certainly feeling that way. Sometimes it can be all too easy to get caught up in the day to day chat around prices. Some forget that the reasons why they invested are still strong, even if it feels like the price isn’t. Frisby reminds us that ‘We know government finances do not pass basic safety standards. We know there’s too much
