THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

Mystery Markets, Bubbles and Less Risky Gold
Consider graphs of three markets from the past. These are well known and important markets, but the names, prices and time scales are not shown. They are plotted on linear scales. Note: Structure: Each market moved progressively more vertical before crashing. Bubble: Each market bubbled upward to an unsustainable level and collapsed. Timing: Few predicted the dates or prices for these bubble tops, but many observed their bubble characteristics. The Public: The charts show that each market moved

Inflation v Deflation – State Finances
There is a general belief, and that is all it is, that state finances fare better in an inflationary environment than a deflationary one. This perception arises from the transfer of wealth from lenders to the state through a devaluation of the currency, which occurs with monetary inflation, compared with the transfer of wealth from the state to its creditors through deflation. The effect is undoubtedly true, even though it is played down by governments, but it ignores what happens to continuing

Precious Metals Breaking Down! 3 Amigos to Abort? 4 Horsemen to Ride?
I am not trying to be a wise guy with the first half of the title (it’s a goof on alarmist media), but if you were not bear biased or outright bearish on the gold sector’s daily and weekly technicals, and its macro and sector fundamentals by now all you have left are the alarmist headlines now telling us about H&S breakdowns, HUI/Gold ratio bearishness and whatever else is going on out there in media large and small to scare the lowly gold bug.As noted in an NFTRH update last night…It’s hard to

“Gold is Currency, Period!” - Rory Hall
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been focused on Russia and their understanding of gold and why gold is going to come back to the table of regional and/or international trade. It may even make a grand re-entrance as backing for a national currency or two. Russia, with her closest ally China, have been making headlines, in the broader financial world, for close to two years regarding their acquisitions of gold. Within the smaller gold community these two nations have been making headl

“Incestuous, homogeneous fiefdoms of self-proclaimed expertise are always rank-closing and mutually self-defending, above all else.” Glenn Greenwald "For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality.  A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor — other people's lives.  For too many of us life was no longer free; liberty no lon

Venezuela Announces “the Petro” Currency Backed by Gold, Oil and Diamonds - Rory Hall
I sent this to Chris Powell, GATA, and he asked, what about the “convertibility”? Apparently, Venezuelan President Madura is following China’s lead, but instead of a subtle rollout over time as to not cause some kind of market shake-up, he has decided that now is as good a time as any to announce the creation of a new digital currency: the Petro, backed by Venezuela’s gold, oil and diamond reserves. Venezuela is creating a digital currency to combat a financial blockade by the United Sta

What’s the Point
A reader emailed us, to ask a few pointed questions. Paraphrasing, they are: Who cares if dollars are calculated in gold or gold is calculated in dollars? People care only if their purchasing power has grown. What is the basis good for? Is it just mathematical play for gold theorists? How does knowing the basis help your readers? Is it just a theoretical explanation of what has already happened? Prove that if someone has known the basis for the last four years, he has benefitted. He also added

Tax Bill Analysis: Spend Your Extra $100 Wisely
In the Senate tax bill, someone making $100K gets an extra $100 to spend in 2027. Those making less than $75K lose moneyTax reform was supposed to be simpler, more fair, not add to the deficit. and lower taxes on the middle class. It did none of those things, but it did lower taxes on corporations to 20%. Simpler - No The Senate version kept the complicated and much despised Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).

You're Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming 
I hate to break it to you, but chances are you're just not prepared for what’s coming. Not even close.  Don't take it personally. I'm simply playing the odds. After spending more than a decade warning people all over the world about the futility of pursuing infinite exponential economic growth on a finite planet, I can tell you this: very few are even aware of the nature of our predicament. An even smaller subset is either physically or financially ready for the sort of future barreling down on

Silver and Gold Bottom Soon
Gold and silver are on track to hit a yearly low this December, as they have for the past five years, says Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold, who explains his reasoning and why he welcomes these moves. Silver and gold have hit a new a low for the year during December in each of the last five years. They are on track for repeating their journey this year if we are to believe sentiment matters. And I do. Two measures allow us to gauge sentiment. My favorite is the

If You THINK About Taking Someone’s Golden “Pet Rock” It Would Be a “Declaration Of Financial War” - Rory Hall
Russia is not Venezuela. I have long argued that most of Venezuela’s monetary issues are due to their unwillingness to return the gold they received from the Federal Reserve. Goldman Sachs had offered to acquire Venezuela’s gold, when the oil market began it’s slide and OPEC decided to flood the market with oil. The story line was OPEC was attacking the US shale oil market when this move actually crushed Russia and Venezuela’s oil market. Venezuela, eventually, accepted Goldman’s offer

Gold and Silver versus Twilight Zone Bubbles
Every bubble inflates, rises vertically, excites the masses (get rich now – don’t be left behind), appears unstoppable and crashes. The sun rises and sets. Twilight emerges. Empires, markets, and ideas enter their twilight zone where huge changes occur. Those changes may not happen next week or next month, but soon. Expect the bubbles in stocks and bonds to burst, as they inevitably must, and precious metals to rise – finally! Consider the following bubble examples: Amazon, Apple and Bitcoin.

If Inflation is Too Low... Explain These Three Charts
Everywhere one looks, inflation is roaring. Oil is about to hit $60 a barrel, having risen 10% this year alone. Moreover, home prices have hit new all-time highs, surpassing even their 2006 peaks. Don't forget that inflation expectations are breaking out to the upside as well. Put simply, inflation is appearing all over the economy. And yet, the Fed continues to peddle the ridiculous assertion that inflation is "too low." Why then... are they pushing to hike rates again, for the fourth time i

Inflation Is Not About Price Increases
There is almost complete unanimity among economists and various commentators that inflation is about general increases in the prices of goods and services. From this it is established that anything that contributes to price increases sets in motion inflation.A fall in unemployment or a rise in economic activity is seen as a potential inflationary trigger. Some other triggers, such as rises in commodity prices or workers’ wages, are also regarded as potential threats.If inflation is just a genera

What Trumps Dollars and Gold?
I have commented and written extensively on the generally negative correlation of the US dollar and gold. In simple terms, when the US dollar moves up or down, the price of gold tends to do the opposite. This makes sense because the price of gold is quoted on world markets in good ol’ American greenbacks. That said, there are many other factors that contribute to the price of gold. These include: world economic health; geopolitical events; physical demand for jewelry, investment, hoarding, and i
