Myopic Metals and Miner Miasma
In recent day and weeks, I have slowly moved to the starboard side of the "Vessel of Public Opinion" where most seasoned veterans (aka "old guys") usually wind up; that is to say that I am now officially "cynical" when it comes to the world of investing. Residing in cynicism usually has a few distinct advantages with one being the uncanny ability to have your "bullsh*t meter" on at all times while one glaring disadvantage is that you miss opportunities you might have taken when you were young(er

Dollar sags as U.S. yields stay low, rate hike expectations fade
Reuters/Shinichi Saoshiro/06-26-17 The dollar sagged against its major peers on Monday, losing traction as U.S. Treasury yields stayed low amid fading expectations that the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates again later this year. …The index had climbed to a one-month peak of 97.871 earlier last week, supported by expectations that the Fed, fresh from a mid-June rate hike, would tighten policy again as early as September. But such expectations ebbed over the course of a week, with investors

Fumbling and Bumbling
As part of our continuing investigations into the Interwar Period, we’ve been looking at a funny episode in 1937. June 18, 2017: The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937 October 2, 2017: The Interwar Period, 1914-1944 I think it has been productive to spend all this time on the 1930s. I feel like we are airing out a lot of past confusion and trauma. Of course, many people may not agree with my interpretations and conclusions. But, along the way, they might get the data and materials to come to their own

The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

The Post “Rate-hike” Manipulations-Are Nearly Dead
In 15 years of Cartel, PPT, and Fed “watching,” I’ve not seen anything like the manipulations since Election Day – which is quite amazing, considering the powers that be were clearly aligned with the status quo fronted by Hillary Clinton, and her band of criminal bankers, corporate CEOs, globalist politicians, and “fake news” mainstream media.  Why “they” chose to double down their manipulative efforts when the “Red Swan” fought through their historic election-rigging to win the Presidency is be

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

How to Profit from Irrational Low-Inflation Exuberance
Everyday Definition of Inflation:  “Stuff costs more.” U.S. Government Definition of Inflation:  “After extensive statistical analysis and data manipulation … yada yada yada.” Shadowstats publishes their version of consumer price inflation.  The Chapwood Index is another version.  Both indicate real inflation rates in the U.S. are MUCH HIGHER than the official government statistics.

One striking chart suggests the Fed is making a big mistake
BusinessInsider/Pedro Nicolaci da Costa/06-22-17 The Federal Reserve keeps telling the bond market it wants interest rates to move higher, but traders aren’t listening. That suggests investors don’t believe the Fed’s justification for interest rate increases, which are predicated not only on recent economic improvement but also on a continued bright outlook. One startling chart from Societe Generale’s Albert Edwards illustrates the Fed’s dilemma. Two-year notes are historically the maturity that

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

The Central-Bank Moment
Hyman Minsky was an economist who popularised the idea that “stability leads to instability”. According to Minsky and his followers, credit expands rapidly during the good times to the point where a lot of borrowing is being done by financially fragile/vulnerable entities, thus sowing the seeds of a financial crisis. That’s why the start of a financial crisis is now often referred to as a “Minsky moment”. Unfortunately, Minsky’s analysis was far too superficial. Minsky described a process during

Forget the Stock Market, Pay Attention to This
You can take this to the bank: Americans are messed up about money. A slew of new surveys and data have come out revealing that we don’t save enough, we spend money we don’t have, we have our financial priorities backwards — and more. Here are five new stats that prove Americans are backwards about money. About 1 in 4 literally have no emergency savings. A survey released Tuesday by Bankrate.com found that 24% don’t have even a single dollar saved for an emergency. And that’s just one of many s

The Super Bubble Is in Trouble
You do not need to be a financial market wizard to see that especially bond markets have reached bubble territory: bond prices have become artificially inflated by central banks' unprecedented monetary policies. For instance, the price-earnings-ratio for the US 10-year Treasury yield stands around 44, while the equivalent for the euro zone trades at 85. In other words, the investor has to wait 44 years (and 85 years, respectively) to recover the bonds' purchasing price through coupon payments.Me

Gold Price Hits New 1-Month Low as 'Hawkish' Fed Considers Higher Inflation Target
GOLD PRICES popped $5 higher Tuesday lunchtime in London, rallying from new 1-month lows beneath $1243 per ounce hit after what pundits and analysts took to be "hawkish" comments on interest rates from a senior US Federal Reserve official. Having raised rates to a ceiling of 1.25% last week, "This is actually a pretty good place to be," said New York Fed chief William Dudley late Monday. "We are

Gold books a loss as stocks, dollar rally
MarketWatch/Mark DeCambre/06-19-17 Gold prices finished firmly lower Monday, as the dollar strengthened and as investors favored assets perceived as risky, including stocks, over so-called havens. August gold finished off $9.80, or 0.8%, to settle at $1,246.70 an ounce. The precious yellow metal has closed down in seven of the past nine trading sessions and has been pressured down by a trio of factors: The Federal Reserve’s efforts to normalize U.S. interest rates, a climb in the Dow Jones Indus
