What was the 'strong-dollar policy' except gold leasing and price suppression?
Financial news organizations tonight are full of reports about the imminent demise of the U.S. government's longstanding "strong-dollar policy," what with President-elect Trump having declared in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the dollar is "too strong." The Journal's headline is "Trump Comments Signal Shift in Approach to U.S. Dollar": http://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-comments-signal-shift-in-approach-to-u...

China Considers “Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries”
Just when you might begin to wonder what could possibly be the latest nail in the coffin of the U.S. dollar, news breaks that China is now publicly considering walking away from the U.S. government debt market. Last Wednesday Bloomberg reported that, “Senior government officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries.” China is currently the largest foreign holder of U.S. government debt. Which is why it would

Gold and Silver Bullion Are Only “Safe Investments Left” – Stockman
– Gold is the “ultimate and only real money” – Former Reagan White House Budget Director David Stockman – Trump tax cuts will lead to a ‘fiscal calamity of biblical proportions’ – China downgrades U.S. over political ‘deficiencies’– Expect a ‘huge reset in the bond market’ and a ‘massive drop in household wealth’– ‘People will flee the stock and bond markets in favour of gold and silver – Time to buy (gold and silver bullion) is ideal– “Only safe asset left is gold” Editor: Mark O’Byrne ‘There

The Secret of Wealth Preservation - Jeff Nielson
We have a failure to communicate. The vast majority of the investment public in the Western world has no understanding – at all – about how to preserve and protect their wealth. Of the minority of the investment community with some understanding of wealth preservation, almost invariably it is a flawed understanding. Understanding wealth preservation begins with having a detailed and correct understanding of “money”. Understanding money begins with correctly comprehending the difference betwe

Is China Moving Forward With The Petroyuan?
In recent months rumors have swirled that China may be on the verge of launching the PetroYuan, a setup that would allow them to purchase oil without using dollars. Now there are reports from Zero Hedge and OilPrice.com that the contract system is being tested, and conceivably not that far from launch. According to Zero Hedge, “149 members of Shanghai International Energy Exchange traded 647,930 lots in the drill with total value of 268.2b yuan, according to a statement from the exchange, which

Speculating Our Way to Prosperity
We have been discussing the consumption of capital. Last week, for example, we concluded with: “We see people eating more of the seed corn.” Morally, socialism is the enslavement of man to man. If you create something, they want not just to take it from you, but to render you unable to create anything else. They declare that the ideal is “from each according to his ability.” This is about the most perfect expression of envy ever put into words. By envy, we mean the hatred of the good for being t

Bond Yields Up, Gold Price Up?!
The end of days hits New Year 2018... GOLD PRICES have jumped over 8% from this point last month, says Adrian Ash at BullionVault. At the same time, major government bond prices have dropped as 2018 gets started, pushing up the yield offered to new buyers. Bond yields up, gold up?

  Fielding my grandson’s questions about gold and banking
My grandson had quite a day at school.He had learned that the economy had been suffering from things called Panics, capital P, during the 19th century and had another big one in the early 20th century.He had been told that responsible, public-spirited men like J. P. Morgan had organized a central bank to prevent those Panics.He and other bankers finally got the government to go along with their idea and pass it into law in late 1913.And wouldn’t you know it — we’ve had no more Panics since then.

Silver: 2018 and Beyond
Do you appreciate the beauty of silver coins? Do you understand the necessity for silver in our modern world? American Silver Eagle coins and Canadian Silver Maple Leafs represent value, history, and ownership of an industrially important metal that has been money for thousands of years. Silver for 2018 Governments and central banks inevitably inflate the supply of currency units (devaluation) more rapidly than the underlying economy grows. They add to the unpayable debt load, pretend $230 tr

Stock Selloffs Great for Gold
The stock markets have rocketed higher since Trump’s election win on hopes for big corporate tax cuts.  This extreme rally has left stocks exceedingly overvalued and overbought today.  A major selloff is long overdue and likely imminent.  When stocks inevitably roll over and mean revert lower to rebalance away euphoric sentiment, gold is the main beneficiary.  Gold investment demand soars when stocks materially slide. Two trading days before the November 2016 p

AS SISYPHUS FAILS GOLD WILL ASCEND
Welcome to 2018 – a year that will be the culmination of at least 105 years of mismanagement of the Western financial system by governments, central bankers and the elite. 2018 will be a year of major volatility in many markets. Stocks are now in a melt-up phase and before the major bear markets start in virtually all countries around the world, we are likely to see the final exhaustion moves which could be substantial. The year will also be marked by inflation increasing a lot faster than expec

Why Fractional-Reserve Banking Would Be Limited in an Unhampered Market
The so-called multiplier arises as a result of the fact that banks are legally permitted to use money that is placed in demand deposits. Banks treat this type of money as if it was loaned to them, thus loaning it out while simultaneously allowing depositors to spend that money.RELATED: "Austrians, Fractional Reserves, and the Money Multiplier" by Robert BatemarcoFor example, if John places $100 in demand deposit at Bank One he doesn't relinquish his claim over the deposited $100. He has unlimite

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

Blockchain Tech Is Transforming The Energy Industry
Blockchain is more than just a buzzword. It truly has the potential to turn entire industries on their heads. In many ways, the energy sector has been slow to adopt this new tech, but things are finally beginning to change. As ‘Big Energy’ begins to catch up, many market leaders and investors are looking towards blockchain for a more transparent and efficient energy future. Just one of these capabilities would be to enable the energy industry to adopt a peer-to-peer trading model, completely rev

  If The Banks Try To Unwind Their Silver Short, Who Are They Going To Buy From?
While there’s a lot of commentary about the large paper short position that exists in the silver market, there’s an additional factor exacerbating the situation that few have mentioned. Specifically, given the mindset of the investors that actually own silver, if the banks and hedge funds have to cover their short position, who are they going to buy the metal from? In a typical free market the price of an asset would be where there is an intersection of supply and demand. Yet consider the mindse

Even More Support: Silver Moving Higher in 2018
We are very grateful to see so many others reporting what we have been saying for the past several months. Silver and gold are should have a great 2018 and follow up with a great 2019. Will it be the ten of thousands percent gains like the cryptos? No, but it the advances will be real, tangible and upward. Also, the gains will be associated with real wealth not an blip on a screen. Silver Is a Metal to Watch in the New Year The price of silver is up 10% in three weeks. That’s unusual for silver

Interest Rates Walking On Narrow Ledge
There is a huge shock in store for those who have been lulled to sleep by a stock market that has become accustomed to no volatility and only an upward direction. And that alarm bell can be found in the price action of Bitcoin, which recently tumbled over 40% is less than a week. For the implosion within the cryptocurrency world foreshadows what will happen with the major averages as the Federal Reserve futilely attempts to stop monetizing the exploding mountain of U.S. debt.

Craig Hemke: Gold Has Been Alchemized
I love sitting down with Craig Hemke, TFMetals Report, not only does he share great information it is a lot of fun with some laughter thrown in to keep these all-too-serious conversations a little lighter. When you’re dealing with such subjects as our monetary past and what we see as our monetary future, humor is a necessary ingredient. All the wizards and their magic potions in pots from medieval times couldn’t pull it off but the bankers did.40 years ago. They managed and turned ether, nothing

Gold Price: The Significance Of $1320
I told subscribers to expect $1320 to function as a headwind for gold on this rally, and that’s happening right on schedule. This is the important weekly gold chart. Note that the two biggest volume bars both occurred as key events in India occurred. It could be said that when America catches a general stock market cold, world markets get the flu. Horrifically, when India catches the gold demand sniffles, Western gold and silver stocks can look like they have financial Ebola. It’s clear that
