Obama Has No Middle East Strategy? Good! 
Last week President Obama admitted that his administration has not worked out a strategy on how to deal with the emergence of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as a dominant force in the Middle East. However, as ISIS continues its march through Syria and Iraq, many in the US administration believe it is, in the words of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, a threat "beyond anything we have ever seen." Predictably, the neocons attacked the president's speech. They believe the solut

Gold Market Update

A Warning to Those Grown Bored with Gold
I’m starting to warm once again to gold. Like many of you, I never gave up on it, I had just grown too bored to care. With the bear market in bullion about to enter its fourth year, who could be blamed for losing interest?  Gold has looked so punk for so long that every time it rallies sharply, I get that nagging feeling, as you probably do, that we’re about to get sandbagged for the umpteenth time.  So why the change of heart? All credit to Richard “Doc” Postma, a friend and regular guest panel

  Here's why the gold and silver miners don't complain about price suppression 
Writing at the Silver Doctors Internet site, Bill Rice Jr., managing editor of the weekly newspaper in Montgomery, Alabama, The Independent, asks why gold and silver miners won't fight back against gold and silver market manipulation and price suppression: http://www.silverdoctors.com/why-wont-the-miners-fight-back/ That question also has vexed GATA, but having dealt with many mining company executives for many years, we think we can explain it. First, many gold and silver mining executives ar

Fed Vice Chairman Warns: Your Bank May Seize Your Money to Recapitalize Itself
At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal deb

The Yield Curve and Our Weakened Economy
So far in August the differential between the yield on the 10-year Treasury note and the yield on the 3-month Treasury bill stands at 2.38 percent against 2.95 percent in December 2013. Historically, the yield differential on average has led the yearly rate of growth of industrial production by fourteen months. This raises the likelihood that the growth momentum of industrial production will ease in the months ahead, all other things being equal. It is generally held that the shape of the

New silver fix mechanism won't stop futures price suppression in New York, Speck says
Manipulation of the silver market has been greater than manipulation of the gold market, financial researcher and GATA consultant Dimitri Speck remarks in an interview with Gold and Silver Worlds. He adds that this manipulation is not likely to be eliminated by the relatively minor changes in the mechanism used to establish the benchmark price in London, since the manipulation is heaviest in the futures market in New York.

Eurozone Currency Dispute Intensifies: France Wants More ECB Action to Correct Overvalued Euro, Germ
The currency and fiscal battleground front lines in Europe remains the same. France wants QE, fiscal stimulus, and more leeway on meeting fiscal deficit targets. Germany doesn't.

Market Report: Summer doldrums coming to an end
The pattern of trading in precious metals changed for the better this week. After London's bank holiday on Monday, for the first time in a long time the market opened in London's pre-market with higher prices. This indicated Asian or Middle-Eastern physical demand was returning to the market. Predictably, prices drifted lower during London hours as paper trading took over, and all the gains were more or less lost by close of play on Comex in New York. It was a similar story on Wednesday.

The wages-fuel-demand fallacy
In recent months talking heads, disappointed with the lack of economic recovery, have turned their attention to wages. If only wages could grow, they say, there would be more demand for goods and services: without wage growth, economies will continue to stagnate. It amounts to a non-specific call to stimulate aggregate demand by continuing with or even accelerating the expansion of money supply. The thinking is the same as that behind Bernanke's monetary distribution by helicopter. Unfortunately
