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 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

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

How to Profit from Irrational Low-Inflation Exuberance
Everyday Definition of Inflation:  “Stuff costs more.” U.S. Government Definition of Inflation:  “After extensive statistical analysis and data manipulation … yada yada yada.” Shadowstats publishes their version of consumer price inflation.  The Chapwood Index is another version.  Both indicate real inflation rates in the U.S. are MUCH HIGHER than the official government statistics. THE PROBLEM WITH INFLATION MEASUREMENTS: Inflation measurements, or more properly, consumer price inflation, or e

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

Are Central Banks Getting Ready to Crash the System Again?
While investors pile into Tech Stocks based on endless promotion from the financial media, the US economy is rolling over. Last week the NY Fed downgraded its economic forecast for 2Q17 to just 1.9%. Even worse, it is now forecasting 2017 total growth to be a measly 1.5%. Yes, 1.5%. There is a clear trend to this chart… and it’s NOT up. Source: NY Fed Wait, it gets worse. The Citi Surprise Index has collapsed to levels not seen since 2011. Source: Yardeni Research Why does this level matter? T

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

Existing Home Sales Bounce 1, Time to Sell Hits New Low: “Happy and Relieved”?
Housing, which had been showing considerable second-quarter weakness bounced slightly. That was enough to beat the Econoday consensus. Housing has been sliding which adds importance to May’s very solid 1.1 percent rebound in existing home sales to a higher-than-expected 5.620 million annualized rate. Today’s report is mostly solid throughout and includes gains for single-family homes, up 1.0 percent to a 4.980 million rate, and also condos, up 1.6 percent to a 640,000 rate. The sales gains did n

The Daily Market Report: Gold Eying Support Just Below the Market
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-21-17 Gold has turned more consolidative, having perhaps found support ahead of trendlines and the 200-day moving average. After closing lower in 8 out of the last 10 sessions, the yellow metal was arguably oversold on a short-term basis and is due for a bounce. Despite continued firmness in the stock market and assurances from the Fed that all is well, there remains an underlying air of uncertainty that is helping to underpin the yellow metal with some safe-haven interest

Gold Price Slips vs. Falling Dollar as Oil Bounces, Bank of England Split Boosts 'Brexit-Hit' Pound
GOLD  PRICES held near 5-week lows against a falling US Dollar on Wednesday, trading at $1243 per ounce as commodities rallied but world stock markets extended Tuesday's retreat in New York. As Brent crude oil rallied $1 per barrel from yesterday's 7-month lows near $45, that pulled the EuroStoxx 50 index of major European shares more than 1% lower. The British Pound meantime rallied aft

The End of Markets, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Readers in the Alternative Media may have noticed a distinct drop-off in the number of articles that are published on “the gold market” or “the silver market”. This is true even with respect to precious metals commentators. There is a very good reason for this. We no longer have markets. To prove this assertion, as always, the place to start is definition of terms. What is a market? There are a number of ingredients in any definition. However, first and foremost, a market is a forum for human

Is the Fed About to Burst Its Third Bubble?
Stocks continue to trade at nosebleed valuations. According to Fact Set, the S&P 500 is currently trading at a P/E of 21. This is well above its 10-year average of 16.7. And bear in mind, eight of those ten years (from 2010-2017) were when stocks were already overvalued. Source: Fact Set. So the market is extremely overvalued today, even compared to a period in which it has been overvalued. This begs the question… just what justifies these valuation? It isn’t the US economy.

My Newest “Most Likely To Catalyze The Big One”
Today’s article is one of my scariest yet; as, after watching events unfold in the world’s most notorious geopolitical hotspot in recent weeks, it’s difficult to come up, using my best Spock-like logic, with an alternative conclusion to the potentially catastrophic one I’ll discuss today.  Which, if it occurs, may catalyze not only the financial “big one” we all know is coming, but an era of political, geopolitical, economic, and monetary destabilization unlike; and potentially, unparalleled in
