Gold: Minor Weakness Is Nothing To Fear
1.As gold traded in the $1250 - $1255 area a week ago, I suggested the price would immediately decline from there, to the $1230 area or lower.2.That’s exactly what happened.Unfortunately, by late yesterday afternoon, the decline had become a bit frightening for some gold price enthusiasts.A nasty wave of selling quickly drove the price down to about $1222.3.To view the current daily chart, please click here now. A sell signal is currently in play on my “price stoker” (14,7,7 Stochastics).That’s

An infographic showing Australia was the worldâ??s second largest gold producing country in 2012 at 250 metric tons, some way behind China at 370 metric tons. [From graphs.net via Mining.com]. Chinese output continues to rise: some 270.167 tonnes were produced there between January to August 2013, an increase of 8.2% according to reports citing China Gold Association. First quarter production in Australia fell 5% from the previous year, but experienced a revival in the th

The BIS Paves the Way for Silver and Gold 
Behind the scenes (or rather, behind the curtain of propaganda) the most influential of the banking class is sending out smoke signals. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which is the bank for central banks, has telegraphed the next major world financial downturn. As if you could not see it coming. Recently, the Bank for International Settlement (BIS) warns of 'violent' reversal of global markets.“Investors take zero-rates for granted and unwisely believe that central banks will prote

US Dollar Valued In Gold Since 1718 
How many ounces of gold can $1000 buy? The answer over time is instructive. Here is some knowledge about money. It is remarkable how few economists really understand this, and what it means, what it implies.  Here is Paul Krugman's opinion on the currency war and the US dollar in a recent piece called Godwin and the Greenback.    I think it speaks for itself.    And he is certainly not the worst economic voice out there, which is what makes this so disconcerting.   At least he is not an aus

How Much Gold is on Loan Worldwide 
We can’t speak about the manipulation of the gold price today without understanding the derivatives market. Right after the crash of 2000 in the stock market I became alarmed by the exponential increase of derivative products but especially by the complexity of those products. I am sure that if I asked one of those financial engineers who has designed those products to explain their functioning and consequences in a bear market or, better yet, in a crash, he would be incapable.

Perpetual Debt Slavery 
There is an unspoken difference between debt that is designed to be paid back and debt (disguised as perpetual flow) to finance pre-existing streams of debt service. The second type of debt is a Ponzi large enough to make Bernie Madoff blush.  And crash the system. In the current system, debt is money for nothing used to create asset bubbles. Including the equity lift-off we see today. Giving rise to the pump and dump scams that are very much alive and well.As Zerohedge captured the essence: "To

The Fed’s New Labor-Market Measure
Economists at the Federal Reserve have devised a new indicator, which they hold will enable US central bank policymakers to get better information regarding the state of the labor market. The metric is labeled as the Labor Market Conditions Index (LMCI). Note that one of the key data points Fed policymakers are paying attention to is the labor market. The state of this market dictates the type of monetary policy that is going to be implemented. Fed policymakers are of the view that it is the

Why is gold mining such a crappy business? 
That gold mining has generally been a crappy long-term investment for almost five decades is evidenced by the following chart. The chart, much of the data for which were provided by Nick Laird of www.sharelynx.com, shows the ratio of the Barrons Gold Mining Index (BGMI) and the US$ gold price from 1920 through to the present*. More specifically, it shows that, relative to gold bullion, the group of gold-mining stocks represented by the BGMI has been in a secular decline since 1968 and is now clo

Is the Surge in Capital Goods Orders Due to Malinvestment?
Orders for US non-military capital goods excluding aircraft rose by 0.6 percent in August after a 0.2 percent decline in July to stand at $73.2 billion. Observe that after closing at $48 billion in May 2009, capital goods orders have been trending up. Most commentators regard this strengthening as evidence that companies are investing both in the replacement of existing capital goods and in new capital goods in order to expand their growth.

Taxes on Capital and Capital Accumulation
An economy is, fundamentally, a physical thing. We create goods and services. We don't create "money."

Today, in the industrialized economy, we have enormous investments in capital. "Capital" is, fundamentally, the creation of a thing that helps to create goods and services.

  The Real Status of Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq 
After 13 years of war in Afghanistan - the longest in US history - the US government has achieved no victory. Afghanistan is in chaos and would collapse completely without regular infusions of US money. The war has been a failure, but Washington will not admit it. More than 2,000 US fighters have been killed in the 13 year Afghan war. More than 20,000 Afghan civilians were also killed. According to a study last year by a Harvard University researcher, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan w

The Calm Before the Storm in the Gold Market
US Dollar Index vs Spot Gold Again this week the gold price tested the $1,200 level dropping below it on higher US dollar against most fiat currencies. It is assumed that a stronger US dollar against the euro and other fiat currencies is also negative for the price of gold. However gold is not a hedge against the US dollar but rather against all fiat currencies. Even though gold’s price has been falling, in India and China gold premiums have increased signifying a rising demand. We have als

Some people call this the Soft Money paradigm, characterized by the “Rule of Man.” But, I think it is important that quite a few go

Inflation's Not the Only Way Easy Money Destroys Wealth
