Watching Palladium Make New All-Time Highs
 The price action in palladium is eerily reminiscent of early 2001, and this could have major implications for gold and silver in the months ahead. Back in 2001, the price of palladium spiked to highs above $1100/ounce. At the time, major physical palladium shortages appeared and tremendous strain was put upon the LBMA palladium market in London. Lease rates soared, and it appeared that th

Precious Metals Leasing Explained
Whatis precious metals leasing, and why is it done...? LEASINGis an integral part of the precious metals market,writes Miguel Perez-Santalla at BullionVault. Why is it necessary? For a diverse number of reasons, the first is the need for industry to borrow instead of buying outright the metal. This enables them to avoid owning the metal at a fixed price if they have not yet contracted to sell their product.

3 Amigos of the Macro, Updated
You thought I was done with the Amigos shtick, did you? Not by a long shot ma’am. They are the happy-go-lucky riders in play as the stock bull market churns on. They are the rising SPX/Gold ratio and stocks in general vs. gold (Amigo #1), rising US 10yr & 30yr yields (Amigo #2) and the flattening 10-2 yield curve (Amigo #3). On their current trends these goofy riders have signaled “a-okay!” to casino patrons playing the stock market and other risk ‘on’ items.Taking our macro indicators out of or

The Chicago Way Precious Metals Protection Plan
Do you have a plan to protect your precious metals? You should. I’m going to tell you mine today. I’m from Chicago. The second city. The windy city. The city of big shoulders. All of that sounds nice, but if you’ve live in Chicago, the phrase that is always top of mind is not so romantic. You may have heard it before. It’s the phrase that was famously mouthed by Sean Connery in the movie “The Untouchables” when he said “THATS the Chicago Way.” The Chicago Way. If you live in Chicago and don’t kn

LBMA Alchemy and the London Gold and Silver Markets: 2 Steps Back
“Did you think that the high-powered world of the LBMA would operate in a fishbowl for all to see? We cannot take what is on the outside as evidence for what is on the inside.” Thoughts of ANOTHER – October 1997 LBMA Gold Price and LBMA Silver Price – Price Publication Delays In August 2014, the long-standing and tainted London Silver Fixing daily auction was replaced by a newly launched London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Silver Price daily auction.

Gold Stocks Break Down below 2017 and 2018 Lows!
The HUI Index just closed below both 2017 and 2018 lows. The interpretations of many developments in the market are vague and subjective. But not major breakdowns. Gold miners just showed exceptional weakness by closing at new lows even though gold is still above $1,300 and the S&P corrected more than half of its recent sharp decline. Can anything save the precious metals sector from falling further? Yes, but based on what happened yesterday, it seems that the golden Superman may have some troub

Macro Update: 1 Week Later Risk Remains 'On' as 2 of 3 Amigos Ride On
Despite a tough week for stocks into Friday, February 9, three big picture macro indicators have continued to support a risk ‘on’ backdrop. Many of the shorter-term indicators we watch, like Junk bond ratios and the Palladium/Gold ratio say the same thing. Junk/Treasury and Junk/Investment Grade are threatening new highs and as we have noted in NFTRH updates all through the recent market volatility, Palladium (cyclical) got hammered vs. Gold (counter-cyclical), but only to test its major uptrend

The Bank Wouldn’t Accept My Cash
Dear Subscribers, I wanted to share a valuable experience with you that occurred to me yesterday at a prominent bank that has ‘America’ in it’s name. I went to make a deposit into a subcontractors account to pay for labor. As I normally do, I went to into the bank to pay him from my debit card via cash advance. I do not have an account with the said bank. I have all of his correspondence and filled out the deposit slip, and was informed that the transaction would not be accepted. The teller info

An Interview with GoldCore Founder, Mark O’Byrne
“Uber-bull predictions of gold at over $5,000 per ounce are not beyond the realms of possibility…” So says GoldCore founder and self-confessed gold bug, Mark O’Byrne. Indeed, I recently caught up with Mark to get his thoughts on gold and what’s going on with it right now… But before we got to the nitty-gritty, I started by asking him a little about his background: GLENN: How long have you been in the gold business, Mark?
