Gold And Cryptos Destroy Fiat
I’ve predicted that a long period of deflation in the Western world would end with a Fed taper, rate hikes and quantitative tightening. That’s clearly in play now, and the deregulation of America’s thousands of small banks is perhaps the most exciting event taking place on this new “inflationary frontier”. Because of these powerful monetary trends, I’ve predicted big problems ahead for Wall Street and somewhat better times for Main Street. Having said, that, I think investors would be making a

Cryptojunkies: Beware the Ides of December
It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial traders. The weekly COT for that week showed an aggregate short position of a miniscule 2,911 contracts down from the earlier highs of over 300,000 contracts. About six weeks later, despite the earlier bottom in gold, the HUI (NYSE Ar

Harvey Organ: Why such shorting of Comex gold and silver if there's none for delivery?
Gold and silver market analyst Harvey Organ today posts an open letter to the chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, J. Christopher Giancarlo, calling attention to the transfer to London of a huge number of gold and silver futures contracts claimed for delivery on the New York Commodities Exchange. Organ writes that the transfers, called "exchanges for physicals," purportedly are allowed in emergencies but have become common occurrences -- so common, in fact, that more Comex

Bullion Star: Why Singapore is so great for gold investors
Bullion Star, headquartered in Singapore, today expounds on the city-state's great advantages for gold investors. Bullion Star writes: "Apart from the goods-and-services tax exemption on investment precious metals, there are a number of other jurisdictional advantages that have supported the growth of Singapore as a gold trading and storage hub and that reinforce the logic for buying gold and storing gold in Singapore. "In Singapore, there are no other taxes when buying gold, silver, or other

Bitcoin Futures Race: Will Bitcoin Cash Lure the Crowd?
Bitcoin is making quite a name for itself.

Silver Prices Erase 2017 Gain as Comex Bulls Retreat Fastest Ever Before Fed Rate Hike, CBOE Bitcoin Launch
SILVER PRICES failed to follow a small bounce in gold bullion Monday morning in London, holding unchanged versus the US Dollar from New Year 2017 as gold held $100 per ounce higher from January 1st ahead of this week's long-anticipated US Federal Reserve decision on interest rates.

Bitcoin Hyper-Deflation
A meme we have seen in the bitcoin community seems to be gaining traction. Bitcoin is deflationary. That is prices of things, measured in bitcoin, are falling. For example, in spring 2011, gasoline was Ƀ1.00. This week, that same gallon had fallen to Ƀ0.0001875. Gas has gone down by 99.98 percent! We don’t think that even the diehard bitcoin bugs really believe this. But it leads to an interesting point. In the past, we have used the analogy of measuring a steel meter stick with stretchy rubber

Bitcoin billionaire Winklevoss sees the cryptocurrency replacing gold
By Olga Kharif Bloomberg News Saturday, December 9, 2017 Cameron Winklevoss, thought to be one of the largest holders of bitcoin, thinks the cryptocurrency's blazing gains this year are just the start. He predicts it will rise as much as 20-fold as investors come to view it as an upgrade to gold. Wall Street's plan to launch futures contracts on Sunday, making it easier to bet against the digital currency's rally in recent months, is making some enthusiasts nervous -- but not Winklevoss. He's on

Bill Murphy: Rocketing bitcoin highlights gold and silver suppression
The gold price was traumatized yesterday by the Gold Cartel's forceful raid, plunging right through important support at $1,270 all the way down to $1,260. While a technical breakdown was created, enough buyers showed up to take the price back up to a touch away from $1,270 through the early London trading hours. Efforts to break through that former support point were thwarted twice. Then it was pressure on a couple hours ahead of our Comex opening ... which took the price back down to $1,263.

THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

Gold Stocks Break, Gold to Follow
We’ve been persistently bearish on precious metals since September and that has annoyed our readers. The weak price action, negative divergences and bearish fundamentals are too much to currently overcome for the time being. The gold stocks finally cracked this week and have lost another 7%-8% in only the past seven trading sessions. Silver and Gold denominated in foreign currencies have joined the breakdown. Gold meanwhile has not broken down yet but all indications are that it will soon. The c
