Gold Surges While Stock Markets Implode 
Graceland Updates By Stewart Thomson1.It’s the dawn of another day, in the worst month of global stock market “crash season”.Long ago, I defined global stock market crash season as the August 7th to October 31st timeframe.2.Investors who fail to exit general equity market positions by August 7th each year take the reckless risk of watching most of their holdings get completely destroyed.3.That’s because history’s greatest stock market crashes, including the 1929 wipeout, have occurred in the mon

  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 Countdown to Truth
“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”-Winston ChurchillLet’s take a look at this quote in the context of physical silver.

Just Blame the Banks
“I think this is a time where people will look back on us and see it as a period of practically central bank worship.”- Jim GrantCentral bank equals big private-publicly owned banks. The populace still holds a collective deference for the banks. The view that the political financial alliance is the problem is still a rare one. Always one step from conspiracy."It is well enough that people or the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system for it they did, I believe that there would

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

Inflation's Not the Only Way Easy Money Destroys Wealth 
The US Federal Reserve can keep stimulating the US economy because inflation is posing little threat, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Kocherlakota said. “I am expecting an inflation rate to run below two percent for the next four years, through 2018,” he said. “That means there is more room for monetary policy to be helpful in terms of … boosting demand without running up against generating too much inflation.” The yearly rate of growth of the official consumer price index (CPI) s

  Scottish Referendum Gives Reasons to be Hopeful 
Even though it ultimately failed at the ballot box, the recent campaign for Scottish independence should cheer supporters of the numerous secession movements springing up around the globe. In the weeks leading up to the referendum, it appeared that the people of Scotland were poised to vote to secede from the United Kingdom. Defeating the referendum required British political elites to co-opt secession forces by promising greater self-rule for Scotland, as well as launching a massive c

  Dozens of Countries Have Already Kicked the Fiat Currency Habit 
It might seem that today we are deeply devoted to the Mercantilist paradigm in monetary affairs: the notion of a floating fiat currency managed by a panel of bureaucrats, to address an ever-changing menu of issues including unemployment, exchange rates, financial markets, government funding, and the interests of one group or another. 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

  Why ECB QE Is Bearish For Gold Prices 
The recent action by the ECB appears to have caught many gold bulls off guard. A common interpretation of the impact that a potential quantitative easing program would have on gold prices was that it would be very bullish. This argument was based on the concept that money printing is bullish for gold, and that QE1 and QE2 by the Fed triggered major rallies in the yellow metal. Whilst we do not dispute that QE1 and QE2 by the Fed were indeed bullish for gold, we strongly disagreed that the ECB wo

Deflation Is Bullish For Gold Stocks

They can gleefully ignore Indian black market imports in their assessment of demand and supply, and nobody questions them.   Thus, a tiny outflow of gold from Western ETFs in September is relentlessly highlighted as a harbinger of gold price doom, while recent reports that India is importing more than 15 tons a week in the black market, are swept under the rug.Unfortunately for the bearish economists, they c

Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
Of course the Gold Price is manipulated, that’s the point! 
By Julian D. W. PhillipsThroughout history, there have been a constant flow of schemes to try to manipulate the gold price and gold itself in terms of paper money. These have come from governments, institutions as well as from individuals. The aim has always been to either establish the value of currencies or enhance that value in terms of gold. The first key to this is to ensure that the gold price is made in the paper currency and not the price of the paper currency in gold.At school you proba

  Perception vs. Reality at the Fed 
Last week, a story broke about Fed whistleblower Carmen Segarra. I wrote an article on Forbes about it, Disgruntled Fed Lawyer Blows Whistle on Regulatory Capture. Segarra is a former Fed regulator assigned to supervise Goldman Sachs. She secretly recorded 46 hours of audio from her meetings, during her short stint on site at Goldman as a Fed employee. This story does not come in a vacuum. There is an ongoing narrative, which is simple, even facile. We had a crisis in 2008, and therefore banks c

  Gold vs Silver during Precious-Metals Bull Markets 
It is widely believed that silver outperforms gold during bull markets for these metals, but that's only partially true. It's true that silver tends to achieve a greater percentage gain than gold from bull-market start to bull-market end. It's also the case that silver tends to do better during the final year of a cyclical bull market and during the late stages of the intermediate-term rallies that happen within cyclical bull markets. However, the early stages of gold-silver bull markets tend to

The Coming Slump 
Governments and central banks have made little or no progress in recovering from the Lehman crisis six years ago. The problem is not helped by dependence on statistics which are downright misleading. This is particularly true of real GDP, comprised of nominal GDP deflated by an estimate of price inflation. First, we must discuss the inflation adjustment. The idea that there is such a thing as a valid measure of price inflation is only true in an econometrician's imagination. An index which might

Precious metals have faced adverse weather as evidence mounts that major economies may be sliding into recession. Yesterday the ECB finally responded to the deteriorating situation in the Eurozone by announcing a discretionary form of QE to last up to two years if necessary. The only clues are the ECB will buy in covered bonds and asset backed securities issued in euros in the Eurozone with an objective to increasing the ECB's balance sheet by about €1 trillion.Some sort of easing had been expec

The Federal Reserve has been reducing its balance sheet expansion from $85 billion a month (85,000 million) to zero in mid-November. While the fed does not characterize it as a tightening, it is one.

  Will the US succeed in breaking Russia to maintain dollar hegemony?... 
In Why they are making an enemy of Russia? we looked at two of the key reasons why the US is making an enemy of Russia, namely the promotion of conflict by the powerful Defense industry lobby in order to keep its order books full, and the value of conjuring up an external enemy as a hate figure for the masses, in order to take the heat off the government. In this article we are going to look at what is arguably an even bigger reason, that was largely omitted in the earlier article, which is that

The Gold Report: The Washington D.C.-based Silver Institute reports that net silver demand has exceeded net silver supply each year since 2004, with a supply deficit of 113 million ounces (113 Moz) reported in 2013. Why hasn't that trend translated into dramatically higher silver prices? Sean Rakhimov: First, I don't put much faith in these numbers. For instance, CPM Group has somewhat different numbers.
