Tulips, Railways and Why We Don't Take Bitcoin
No stocks, bonds, seashells or Yap stones either please...

Year end tax season and precious metals
We are now close to the end of the year where people adjust portfolios with taxes in mind. For securities there is a “wash rule” provision not allowing the repurchase of the same security for 30 days.

Physical gold and silver are considered “commodities” for tax purposes and are not subject to the 30 day wash rule. Miles Franklin has solicited le

Shelter From The Storm
What storm?  The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high.  Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! Ho-Hum! Really?  Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world?  If so

Don’t Expect Palladium Prices to Plunge
Over the past month, there has been a deluge of news heralding a new era of palladium, which has soared above the $1000 per ounce mark for the first time in the past 16 years.

We’re transitioning now (how about you?)
It finally happened, we have a new Federal Reserve Chairman who will take the place of the academician. Jerome Hayden “Jay” Powell will replace Janet Yellen as Federal Reserve Chairman at the end of Yellens term and hopefully we will no longer see financial experiments by those that have never traded. This change up may actually create real movements without the central banker hindrances within the debt arenas. What will that do to the rest of the markets and to ones investments if they are not
