The LBMA Is A Ploy of the Central Bank Community - Nico Simons
This article is about the way the Central Bank Community manipulates the price of gold and the role of the LBMA within. We describe some of the signs that the Central Bank Community manipulate the price of gold and that they are using the LBMA to reach their goal. Is the manipulation of the gold price a classic case of Diffusion of responsibility because so many organizations are involved and avoid taking responsibility?

Trump, Charlottesville and Gold
Last week, the counter-rally against the far-right protest in Charlottesville turned into tragedy. What does it mean for the gold market? As both the Fed and the ECB released the minutes of their last meetings, we have recently focused on monetary policy. However, the last week was also hot for Donald Trump. On August 12, there was a protest of far-right groups against the decision to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee. In response, a counter-protest was organized. But it ende

The Daily Market Report
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-22-17 Gold is consolidating at modestly lower levels, but still generally at the high end of the recent range. The yellow metal remains underpinned by elevated political and geopolitical risks, while today’s uptick in the dollar weighs. German ZEW Economic Sentiment slid to 10.0 in August, below expectations of 15.5, versus 17.5. Waning confidence in Germany diminishes the likelihood of any imminent tapering by the ECB. The recent rise in the euro appears to have stalled f

Gold Price makes Small Recovery in Wake of Political/Geopolitical Uncertainty, while the Market Closely Watches Jackson Hole
GOLD PRICES edged 0.3 percent higher on Monday lunch time, after falling $15 from $1300 per ounce last Friday, as news broke that President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon had left his position at the White House. $1300 per ounce was the highest gold price since the U.S. presidential election. This latest upheaval in the Trump administration followed the resignation of several top CEOs from President Trump's Manufacturing Council, following his weak response to the Charlottesvi

Problems Too Big and Too Many To Fix: Trump Will Be the Fall Guy
The axe fell on Steve Bannon Friday. Mid-day, mainstream media proclaimed stocks were up because of the firing. Stocks closed the day down. Apparently, stocks were both up and down due to Bannon. Now Banon is Back on the Outside, back at Breitbart, and happy to be there. Stephen K. Bannon has always been more comfortable when he was trying to tear down institutions — not work inside them. With his return to Breitbart News, Mr. Bannon will be free to lead the kind of ferocious assault on the pol

The Relationship Between Saving and Money
Conventional wisdom says that savings is the amount of money left after monetary income was used for consumer outlays. Hence, for a given consumer outlays an increase in money income implies more saving and thus more funding for investment. This in turn sets the platform for higher economic growth.Following this logic, one could also establish that increases in money supply are beneficial to the entire process of capital formation and economic growth. (Note increases in money supply result in in

'There Is No Cure for this Disease...' 
In 1934, through the Gold Reserve Act, President Roosevelt devalued the dollar from $20.67 dollars per ounce, to $35 dollars per ounce. The devaluation was excessive, meaning that at $35 dollars per ounce, the world considered that it would rather own American dollars - as undervalued - rather than gold; for this reason, and because of fears regarding another World War, the world shipped enormous quantities of gold to the US, in exchange for US dollars. The consequence was that the stash of Am

The fiscal benefits of free trade
Western governments have an overriding problem, and that is they have reached or exceeded the bounds of taxation, at a time when legally mandated welfare costs are accelerating. Treasury departments in all the welfare nations are acutely aware of this problem, to which there’s no apparent solution. The economic recovery, so consistently forecast since the great financial crisis, has hardly materialised and has added to the problem.There is, if treasury economists could only understand it, a solu

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats From Above $1300
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-18-17 Gold probed briefly above $1300 in early New York trading, establishing new highs for the year, but these gains could not be sustained. The yellow metal is presently trading modestly lower on the day. The retreat may have been simple profit taking ahead of the weekend, but the media is reporting a relief rally in risk assets on the apparent ousting of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. While Bannon was perhaps one of the more divisive members of President Tru

July ECB Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the ECB’s July meeting were released. What do they say about the ECB stance and what do they mean for the gold market? On Wednesday, the FOMC released minutes from its July meeting. Yesterday, the ECB followed and issued its own recent minutes, which are called “Account of the monetary policy meeting”. Similarly to its U.S. counterpart, the ECB minutes were considered by the markets as dovish. This is because they showed that the officials were worried about the continu

The Neocon – Zionist drive for world domination is set to be brought to a screeching halt by something as simple as GOLD. This article is not politically motivated – the writer has no political agenda or affiliation – and the motivation for producing it is to enable you to understand the pivotal role that gold will play in thwarting the Empire’s imperialist ambitions, and how this means that the price of gold – and silver – will skyrocket, and sooner than many think possible. When you know that

Do Seasonal Adjustments Help Identify Business Cycles?
Various statistics that governments produce on a regular basis carry the label "seasonally adjusted". What is the meaning of this label? According to popular thinking the data that is observed over time (labelled as time series) is determined by four factors, which are:The trend factorThe cyclical factorThe seasonal factorThe irregular factorIt is accepted that the trend determines the general direction of the data over time, while the cyclical factor causes movements that are related to the bus

Gold Prices Advance towards Resistance on Weak Dollar and Cautious FOMC Minutes, Palladium Hits 16-Year High
GOLD PRICES rallied towards its resistance level this Thursday morning in London, while the US Dollar remained weak after rather dovish hints from Fed officials suggesting that the next rate hike may be further postponed, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold briefly touched $1289 per ounce before dropping back to $1286 failing to reach the resistance level of $1294 and the psychological barrier of $1300.  The metal started its rise from $1268 on Thursday after

June FOMC Minutes and Gold
Yesterday, the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June meeting were released. What do they say about the Fed’s stance and what do they mean for the gold market? How can we summarize the recent FOMC minutes? Well, the FOMC members agreed that “the labor market had continued to strengthen and that economic activity had been rising moderately so far this year”. But the most important discussion concerned three other issues. First, several participants noted uncertainty about the future course of the

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

Absurd Inflation Discussion by Fed Jackasses
Minutes of the July 25-26 FOMC Meeting show internal concern over the Fed’s inability to hit 2% inflation. I counted 89 instances of “inflation” and 79 instances of “2”. As sub-categories of 2, there were 27 instances of “2 percent” and eight instances of “below 2”. “Longer” came up 26 times. “Transitory”, a previous standout, only came up twice. “Idiosyncratic” a new buzzword courtesy of the Cleveland Fed, came up once. Transitory Beyond 2017, the forecast was little revised from the previou

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
