Silver Price Forecast 2014: Silver’s Ultimate Rally When Paper Assets Collapse 
Silver Price Forecast 2014: Silver’s Ultimate Rally When Paper Assets Collapse The relationship between the Dow and silver has been very consistent over the last 100 years. After each of the major Dow peaks (real, not necessarily nominal peaks), we eventually had major bottom in silver. Below, is a 100-year inflation-adjusted Dow chart: In September 1929, the Dow peaked in terms of US dollars as well as in terms of gold ounces (real terms). After about 1 year and 4 months, silver made a signific

  What Are The Origins Of The Terms 'Bull' And 'Bear'? 
Right now there’s much discussion about whether gold is headed for a bear market after its decade-long bull run. Time will tell, but the current debate may make you wonder how ‘bull’ and ‘bear’ entered the financial lexicon? A bull is a boisterous, charging animal that throws its victim up in the air.

China’s ‘Lehman’ Moment 
A raft of stories across newswire in the last 23 hours suggest there might be a rug-pulling-out of sorts coming for investors in the Far East. And as we know, the Butterfly Effect in globalized markets these days is instant and amplified. It could be suggested at this point that the tech sell-off currently underway in U.S. technology stocks is a result of a growing crisis in confidence toward China, and its economic reporting. One might even go so far as to suggest that, in some of the events,

How I Intend to Survive the Meltdown of America 
It is with a troubled heart that I sit down to write today, there being reports of casualties in new fighting in eastern Ukraine. I worry, of course, about my friends and students in the country who may well be in physical danger soon, if the conflict escalates. But that’s personal; as an investment analyst, it’s the financial war the Russians seem quite willing to wage that really has my attention. It should have yours as well.

The Hare Psychopathy Checklist 
This is from sources on the web, and is based on Robert Hare's psychopathy checklist. 1. Look for glib and superficial charm. A psychopath will also put on what professionals refer to as a 'mask of sanity' that is likable and pleasant. 2. Look for a grandiose self perception. Psychopaths will often believe they are smarter or more powerful than they actually are. 3. Watch for a constant need for stimulation. Stillness, quiet and reflection are not things embraced by psychopaths. They need

Sometimes pictures are far more effective in communicating an important point. They are extremely effective in undermining respect and confidence, when in the cartoon format. A sequence of graphics struck the cognitive circuits recently. Long explanations will not serve well. The US Federal Reserve has been printing money since 2011 to cover USGovt debt securities in a frenetic manner. They have lost control. They call it stimulus, when it is actually the opposite. It does assist the speculators

85% of Pension Funds to Fail in Three Decades
Bridgewater Associates did an analysis of pension funds recently and concluded 85% of them will fail if returns average 4%. Bridgewater notes that public pensions have just $3 trillion in assets to invest to cover future retirement payments of $10 trillion over the next many decades. It would take an investment return of roughly 9% a year to meet those obligations. With the 30-Year long bond yielding a mere 3.5% and with stock valuation through the roof, I expect negative returns for 7-10 year

Understanding (and Ignoring) the Media Bandwagon Against Gold 
For those of us who media often refers to as “gold bugs”, the fragility of popular sentiment toward not just gold and silver, but toward all investments generally, is the biggest barrier to a sane, free and fair market. The willingness of the majority to embrace opinions parroted by mainstream media and repeated dutifully by talking heads and other erstwhile shills for U.S. dollar interests simply because they are far more numerous than negative ones, and are delivered by talking heads who manag

SILVER PRICES traded in a tight range last week, hitting a high of $20.30 and a low of $19.68 before closing just a few cents higher from the previous Friday as tensions rose over Ukraine's response to pro-Russia separatists.

Gold and bail-ins 
I am often asked whether or not western governments are likely to confiscate gold, and my answer has invariably been on the lines of "unlikely at the moment, because so few people own gold". However given low stock levels in western vaults and that bail-ins are on the agenda the answer to the question should be reconsidered. I first wrote about the new bail-in provisions after the Cyprus debacle last year. What it means for depositors is succinctly summarised in a current UK Government consultat

New York Fed contradicts its former vice president about gold accounts 
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has contradicted the assertion of its former vice president that it has provided gold accounts to bullion banks. The assertion of such accounts was made by H.

Why Gold? 85% of Pension Funds Will Go Bust in 30 Years
I have not seen the scenarios run by Bridgewater Associates, but I do have respect for their name and their work.  I would like to know their assumptions. In an inflation, stocks may do quite well, as their inflated valuations keep pace with inflation. Bonds are likely to get obliterated. In a stagflation not so much.  The Fed and the Treasury would like a modest inflation to provide a controllable dilution of debts without opening the door to a debt jubilee for the hoi polloi.  The Fed serve

Like George Bush before him, Barack Obama unfurled a “Mission Accomplished!” banner last week that can only come back to haunt him. To assert, as Obama just did, that the Obamacare debate is settled is to flout hard truths that are negatively impacting the lives of virtually every American each and every day, hitting them literally where they live.

Gold Futures Halted Again On Latest Furious Slamdown
They are not even trying to hide the gold manipulation these days. You would think with the recent spotlight on gold price fixing and lawsuit filed in March, the manipulators would at least retreat into the shadows for a few months. But this is not the case, as they chose tax day for the largest slam down of 2014. This action is clearly not-for-profit selling, which can only be interpreted as price manipulation. The regulators are bought off and/or appointed by the banks that are doing the manip
