You Are Being Lied To About “Low” Gold Demand 
I don’t like to use inflammatory language, such as the title of this article, but the message from the mainstream media about gold demand is a lie misleading.Yes, coin purchases in North America are down compared to last year (a record-setting year, by the way). It’s been soft at a few other Mints as well, such as Perth.But Eagle and Kangaroo purchases aren’t the whole market. You and I don’t buy paper gold products, for example, but throw in demand from this part of the industry and a very diff

Bitcoin Has No Yield, but Gold Does
Last week I said: It is commonly accepted to say the dollar is “printed”, but we can see from this line of thinking it is really borrowed. There is a real borrower on the other side of the transaction, and that borrower has powerful motivations to keep paying to service the debt. Bitcoin has no backing. Bitcoin is created out of thin air, the way people say of the dollar. The quantity of bitcoins created may be strictly limited by Satoshi’s design. We referred to the dollar as being borrowed

Gold’s Breaks Below $1,270 – Third Time Lucky?
The last couple of years and – in particular – the last couple of months were very difficult for gold traders – i.e. they were boring. Despite several huge daily price swings, the precious metals market has not been going anywhere, moving in and around the $1,100 - $1,300 price range. Gold got to the point where this lack of volatility is by itself an extreme sign pointing to a much bigger price swing in the market, as the periods of very high and very low volatility tend to follow each other.

The Daily Market Report: Gold Consolidates Awaiting FOMC Minutes
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-16-17 Gold is consolidating within yesterday’s range, awaiting the FOMC minutes from July’s Fed confab. Earlier tests of the downside were limited and short-lived and the yellow metal is now trading modestly higher on the day. It will be interesting to see if the level of concern about waning inflation pressures was elevated beyond that which was expressed in the July policy statement. I suspect that the minutes will do nothing to mitigate the expectation that the Fed is o

Nico Simons: LBMA is the front for gold market rigging by central banks
Dutch financial journalist Nico Simons today compiles admissions of central bank involvement with the gold market and concludes that the London Bullion Market Association is just a front for central bank rigging of the price of the monetary metal. The LBMA, Simons writes, provides central banks with the secrecy necessary for market rigging and this rigging, not any free market, determines the gold price. Simons' analysis is headlined "The LBMA Is a Ploy of the Central Bank Community" and it's po

Morning Snapshot: Gold remains defensive at the low end of yesterday’s range
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-16-17 Gold is narrowly confined at the low end of yesterday’s range. Diminished geopolitical risks are putting modest pressure on the yellow metal, inciting investors to move back into ricks assets. However, a host of other risks underpin and nobody really believes the North Korean situation is anywhere close to being resolved. U.S. housing starts tumbled 4.8% in July to a 1.155M pace, below expectations of 1.220M, versus a negative revised 1.213M in June. Minutes of the J

Bitcoin Buying And Bullion Swaps-The Wisdom Of Experience
Alright, let’s start by getting the B.S. out of the way – of how stocks are rising, and bullion falling, due to the “diminished Korean threat.”  To start with, amidst supposed investor “terror” of nuclear Armageddon, the VIX, even at its most “terrifying” point, barely rose – whilst the stock market had exactly one bad day; during which, care of the PPT, the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average”  fell just 0.93%.  Conversely, the “safe-haven surge” into PMs produced exactly one violation of the gold Ca

Tax Reform, Debt Ceiling and Gold
When lawmakers return from their August recess, they will have to deal with the debt ceiling and the tax reform. What does it mean for the gold market? We are in the middle of summer and the lawmakers are on their holidays. So nothing should disturb our peace of mind now. Nothing except the vision of nuclear holocaust after the World War III triggered by the U.S. fire and fury against the North Korea, of course. However, when the recess ends, the lawmakers will have to tackle with the debt ceili

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats on Heightened Risk Appetite, but Finds Support
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-15-17 Gold came under additional corrective pressure in early U.S. trading, weighed by a further easing of geopolitical tensions, along with some better than expected U.S. economic data. While the yellow metal set new lows for the week, buying interest resurfaced well ahead of last week’s low. While North Korea may have walked back an imminent threat to Guam, I don’t believe anyone really thinks that the Korean crisis has been resolved. “Though North Korea is signaling its

Gold Prices 'Shed Crisis Premium' as N.Korea's Kim 'Backs Down' to 'Foolish Yankees'
GOLD PRICES fell 1.4% in Asian and London trade Tuesday, erasing all of August's prior gains as world stock markets rose for a second day amid reports of easing tensions between the US and North Korea after last week's threats of nuclear missile strikes. As Washington's Secretary of Defense James Mattis said it would be "game on" if Pyongyang attacked, the pariah state's regime said it would wait and watch the next move from

The Daily Market Report: Gold Recoups Half of Earlier Losses
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-14-17 Gold is trading modestly lower, having recovered about half of the losses off of Friday’s high at 1292.05. While the North Korean situation did not escalate over the weekend, it certainly is not going away, so the uptick in risk appetite to start the week is unlikely to be sustainable. The rebound in the dollar has been tentative at best, suggesting the bias there remains to the downside. The greenback faces some serious headwinds with the Fed’s tightening cycle on h

Wall Street Journal still isn't ready to question central banking

You can see its display at the lower left side of the page here: http://www.gata.org/files/WallStreetJournalFrontPage-08-11-2017.jpg The report signifies that the situation with gold has become crazy enough that it now can be discussed in polite company.

FLASH: Wall Street Journal acknowledges gold leasing and swaps question ...
* * * In the report appended here the newspaper gets a Fed official to say that the Fed does not lease the gold of other nations. Well, of course not. But do those other nations lease or swap gold, or did they? And does the U.S. government lease or swap gold, or did it? If so, why? The president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, William Dudley, was asked that question in public last year and ran away from it as fast as he could.

The Daily Market Report: Gold Hits Nine-Week High, Just Shy of High for the Year
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-11-17 Gold popped to a new 9-week high of 1292.05 in early New York trading, following more disappointing inflation data. While the yellow metal has been unable to breakthrough to new highs for the year above 1296.06, both the technical and fundamental biases remain to the upside. U.S. CPI rose just 0.1% in July, below expectations of +0.2%, versus unchanged in June. The annualized pace of consumer inflation ticked up to 1.7%. Core CPI also rose 0.1% on expectations of +0.

Gold Stocks Coiled Spring
The gold miners’ stocks have largely ground sideways this year, really lagging gold’s strong rally.  That lack of upside has decimated sentiment, leaving a bearish wasteland bereft of hope.  But this deeply-out-of-favor sector is actually a coiled spring, ready to surge dramatically as psychology shifts.  Sentiment, technicals, and fundamentals all point to much-higher gold-stock prices even at today’s prevailing gold levels. The main appeal of gold-mining stoc

This week, a few FOMC members delivered speeches. What do they imply for the gold market? On Monday, James Bullard, St. Louis Fed President, said that the low inflation may not be temporary, so the Fed can leave interest rates unchanged: “The current level of the policy rate is likely to remain appropriate over the near term," Bullard said in slides prepared ahead of a speech to the America’s Cotton Marketing Cooperatives 2017 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.” Bullard’s insights are interesti
