  Get Ready To Party Like It’s 2008 - Dave Kranzler
Apparently Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin, has threatened Congress with stock crash if Congress doesn’t pass a tax reform Bill. His reason is that the stock market surge since the election was based on the hopes of a big tax cut. This reminds me of 2008, when then-Treasury Secretary, ex-Goldman Sachs CEO, Henry Paulson, and Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, paraded in front of Congress and threatened a complete systemic collapse if Congress didn’t authorize an $800

  The Gold-Backed-Oil-Yuan Futures Contract Myth
On September 1, 2017, the Nikkei Asian Review published an article titled, “China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold”, written by Damon Evans. Just below the headline in the introduction it states, “China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry”. Not long after the Nikkei piece was released ‘the story’ was widely copied in sensational analyses throughout t

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to

Don’t hold your gold in a Swiss Bank
Don’t hold gold in a Swiss Bank or in any bank in any country. We regularly see examples both in medium sized and big Swiss banks that should make bank clients very concerned. Here are some examples: A client stores physical gold in a bank but when he wants us to organise a transfer to private vaults, the gold doesn’t exist and the bank must acquire it. 400 oz gold bars that were bought by the bank for the client in 2005, were cast in 2011, so the gold never existed. A client stores gold in a b

The Monotonous Madness of Managed Markets
So there you have it. A clear breakout to all-time highs confirmed by every measure everywhere with momentum charging ahead and high-fives and champagne corks flying about with reckless abandon and serial glee. To quote Chuck Prince, who left Citigroup in 2007 with an exit bonus of around $12.5 million, $68 million in stock and options, $1.7 million pension, an office, a car and a driver for five years during which time Citigroup shed $64 BILLION in valuation, "As long as the music is playing, y

Gold is up this year not just in dollars but in every major currency
Why it’s important to the typical gold investor by Michael J. Kosares Author: The ABCs of Gold Investing Founder: USAGOLD “Even those of us who have been tracking gold’s progress for decades frequently give in to the ease of quoting gold’s value in terms of fiat currency – most commonly in US dollars. And yet, we have it the wrong way round. Gold is in fact the centre of the economic universe, and all the fiat currencies (including cryptocurrencies) revolve around gold.” – Jeff Thomas, Internat

The Gold Coin Dilemma, Politics and Nonsense
There are five identical bags of gold, and each contains ten gold coins. However, one of the five bags contains fake gold. The real gold, fake gold, and five bags appear identical, except the coins of fake gold each weigh 1.1 ounces, and the real gold coins each weigh 1 ounce. You have an accurate digital scale and CAN USE IT ONLY ONCE. How do you determine which bag contains the fake gold? (Thanks to my friend Brian C. for sending me this dilemma.) There is a straight-forward answer to this

Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September
Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September, published yesterday, suggest that gold withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange for 2017 will exceed 1,900 tonnes, signifying fairly strong demand. Russia, Bullion Star adds, seems likely to surpass China in officially reported gold reserves by April 2018, though of course China is believed to have much more gold in accounts controlled by the government than it reports publicly. Bullion Star says physical gold holdings by "transparent" gold f
