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

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

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

Only Gold Lasts Forever
This current state of play won’t last forever. Only Gold lasts forever Some days it can feel a little rough being a gold investor. In today’s article Dominic Frisby is certainly feeling that way. Sometimes it can be all too easy to get caught up in the day to day chat around prices. Some forget that the reasons why they invested are still strong, even if it feels like the price isn’t. Frisby reminds us that ‘We know government finances do not pass basic safety standards. We know there’s too much

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

May Retail Sales, CPI, Other Data and Gold
Last week, a few important U.S. economic reports were released. What do they imply for the gold market? The recent days were eventful. The Fed hiked interest rates, the U.S. Treasury unveiled its deregulation plan, and several important pieces of economic news were published. First of all, retail sales fell 0.3 percent in May following a 0.4 percent rise in April. The number was below expectations. Actually, it marked the worst decline since January 2016. However, the drop was mainly caused by a

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

Morning Snapshot: Gold maintains defensive tone
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-21-17 Gold is maintaining a generally defensive tone, edging once again to 5-week lows on weak momentum. A firm dollar and stocks are weighing on the yellow metal, while a myriad of economic, political and geopolitical risks provide underpinning to the market. I’m watching support marked by the 200-day moving average at 1236.12. With recent FedSpeak echoing the hawkish tone of last week’s policy statement, traders are still unwinding some of their short dollar exposure. Th

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

The Daily Market Report: Gold Edges Lower As FedSpeak Dismisses Concerns Over Waning Inflation
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-20-17 Gold edged to a new 7-week low, but the tone today is broadly consolidative. The yellow metal is underpinned, despite continued gains in the dollar. The dollar index pushed to a 6-week high, as recent FedSpeak has struck a hawkish tone that is consistent with last week’s more hawkish than expected Fed policy statement. They are clearly trying to boost rate hike expectations for September; if for no other reason, to keep that option on the table. Right now, the market

Morning Snapshot: Gold better, despite firmer dollar, stocks
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/06-20-17 Gold is modestly higher to start the U.S. session. The yellow metal is better today, despite a higher dollar and another rise in stocks. These are factors that weighed on gold yesterday. With political and geopolitical risks elevated, we may be seeing an uptick in demand for safe-havens. Firmer bonds offer some confirmation. The U.S. Q1 current account gap widened to -$116.8 bln, inside expectations of -$123.6 bln, versus -$114.0 bln in Q4-16. That’s it for today’s e

What Rich Used To Be
From the Slope of Hope: I've had a lifelong fascination with wealth and, more recently, wealth disparity (for proof, look no further than the SocialTrade stack on this very topic). I grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in a happy, financially-secure, but very much middle-class family. We lived in this house: Everyone I knew had the same situation. We all had pretty much the same kind of house, the same quantity of toys, the same simple vacations.........everything was so equal, you'd think we wer

James Rickards: Gold Will Start Heading Higher On “Dwindling” Supply
James Rickards via Daily Reckoning Gold was down after the Fed’s hike, but I expect it to start heading higher again. Too many powerful forces are driving it behind the scenes. Dwindling physical supply is a major one.

Precious Metals VS. Crypto-Currency And Mainstream Investments-“Revisited”
Two days after the most suicidal, hubristically arrogant policy statement in FOMC history, by an institution desperate to maintain the dead propaganda meme of “growth”; and with it, the Cartel’s “response” – gold remains less than $20/oz below its 5½ year downtrend line, and $20/oz above its 200 week moving average; whilst silver – in my view, more undervalued than at any time in history – is just a buck below its 200 week moving average, but a full $0.65/oz above its 5½ year downtrend line.  In

GDXJ Sell Off is a Blessing in Disguise
I. The Bond Market Loses Confidence in the Fed After the Fed hiked rates and highlighted their balance sheet unwinding plans last week, bond yields further dropped. This means there is a significant lack of confidence in the economy and doubt in the Fed by bond investors. Why does this matter? Because bond investors are predicting a recession, so they buy bonds which pushes yields down. But the Fed is claiming that everything is going swell, so they are hiking rates. This is causing the yield cu

Fed’s Normalization Plan and Gold
On Wednesday, the Fed issued addendum to the Policy Normalization Principles and Plans. What does it mean for the gold market? The FOMC not only hiked interest rates at its last meeting, but also laid out a plan to unwind its $4.5 trillion balance sheet. In the May edition of the Market Overview, we wrote that the normalization process “will be passive, gradual and well communicated to the market. And the size of the balance sheet will not return to the pre-crisis level.” Indeed, the Committee “
