Gold Is Now Officially Money 
Everything that has happened since 2007, every Central Bank move, ever major political decision regarding the big banks, every trend, have all been focused solely on one issue. That issue is collateral. What is collateral? Collateral is an underlying asset that is pledged when a party enters into a financial arrangement.  It is essentially a promise that should things go awry, you have some “thing” that is of value, which the other party can get access to in order to compensate them for their

The End of Gold and Silver Mining 
How many reasons to own precious metals- and fear all else-what can I say? I guess we’ll see today, culminating in today’s topic du jour – the increased confidence in our long-standing prediction that not only has global gold and silver mining peaked, but will likely not rebound material even after the Cartel’s inevitable demise. Let’s start with the so-called U.S. “recovery”; which with each passing day becomes more widely understood to be nothing but a scam fabricated by the propaganda machine

Like Dripping Silver Icicles 
I don’t typically emphasize price charts in analyzing the market, however something unusual has been happening in the spot (physical) silver market. It did not happen in the silver futures market, nor in the gold market. I have been bearish on silver because of its supply and demand fundamentals, and the price action shown below adds a new dimension. Let’s take a look at a candlestick chart. Candlestick charts show the open, close, and price range during a particular period. The region between t

  What The Media Won't Report About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 
Just days after the tragic crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said. President Obama held a press conference to claim - even before an investigation - that it was pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council - just one day af

Sean Rakhimov: Upward Trend a Silver Investor's Friend
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. Either way, silver supply and demand have been roughly in equilibrium, in my opinion, over

On the Path To a Better Monetary System: Bretton Woods Didn't Fail Because of the "Balance of Paymen
Today is a period when we are building the foundation for the monetary systems of the future – what former Fed chief Paul Volcker recently called “the need to develop an international monetary system worthy of our time.” This “foundation” consists mainly of ideas – the ideas that are later implemented in real-world systems. Without the ideas, you can’t make the system. It’s as simple as that. I think there is a lot of trauma remaining today

Still Looking Good
No sooner had gold taken a back seat to the soaring stock market, when it did an about face! Tensions in the Middle East and Ukraine pushed gold up. The Fed then fueled the rise by again affirming a low interest rate policy. But a firmer dollar and better economic news then put downward pressure on the metals again. We've felt that 2014 could end up being the turnaround year, from a bear market to a bull market. And that a bull market ascent could develop in 2015. This is still a likely

It's hard to imagine a greater theft from the American people than their personal gold savings.  This stolen gold was then exchanged to foreign bankers for irredeemable paper dollars.

Gold : Western Delusions vs. Chinese Realities 
I don’t want to say that mainstream analysts are stupid when it comes to China’s gold habits, but I did look up how to say that word in Chinese… One report claims, for example, that gold demand in China is down because the yuan has fallen and made the metal more expensive in the country. Sounds reasonable, and it has a grain of truth to it. But as you’ll see below, it completely misses the bigger picture, because it overlooks a major development with how the country now imports precious metals

Silver Before it’s Too Late 
The ongoing plight of the long term value investor continues - seemingly without end. However, decades of exuberance and greed have colluded. The financial establishment has created an accident waiting to happen. The mainstream has not "priced in" risk, which makes it even harder to travel the road less traveled.And once the accident happens, it may be too late.If silver prices were to suddenly move back toward natural price equilibrium, there would naturally (not always the best thing) be a rus

Gold Manipulators are Desperate 
With virtually empty gold vaults, the central banks and bullion banks are now becoming desperate. The action we are seeing in the paper gold market with the recent $50 takedown is yet more proof of the corner that the gold manipulators have put themselves into by having virtually no physical gold left. A rising gold price is dangerous for the manipulators. This would inevitably lead to more physical demand, something that would be disastrous for the manipulators. As the holders of paper gold b

  The Silver Conspiracy 
It’s now going on close to 30 years since I first discovered that silver was manipulated by excessive and concentrated short selling on the COMEX. I remember the exact moment like it occurred yesterday. It’s hard to believe I was in my 30’s when this started. As I’ve explained previously, I was looking for an answer to Izzy Friedman’s question as to how and why silver prices remained so low when the market was in a supply/demand deficit.

  The Belgian Connection 
One of the biggest questions at the end of 2013 was how the Treasury market would react to the reduction of bond buying that would result from the Federal Reserve's tapering campaign. If the Fed were to hold course to its stated intentions, its $45 billion monthly purchases of Treasury bonds would be completely wound down by the fourth quarter of 2014. Given that those purchases represented a very large portion of Treasury bond issuance at that time, it was widely assumed by many, me in particul

What Are the Potential Implications of the End of the Silver Fix in London? 
These last few months have brought confirmation of an acceleration in geo-political and macro-economic events, and they all have mid-term implications for the precious metals markets and, more globally, on the future of the international monetary system. Even though certain events might seem isolated, some links can be established, and this is the object of my analysis. I remain, in my analysis, of the opinion that the current fiat monetary system will collapse, as has been the case throughout

How Long Can Phase II of the Gold Pool Be Sustained 
"The London Gold Pool was the pooling of gold reserves by a group of eight central banks in the United States and seven European countries that agreed on 1 November 1961 to cooperate in maintaining the Bretton Woods System of fixed-rate convertible currencies and defending a gold price of US$35 per troy ounce by interventions in the London gold market. The central banks coordinated concerted methods of gold sales to balance spikes in the market price of gold as determined by the London morning

Gold vs Barron’s Gold Mining Index (BGMI)
One cannot understand gold without understanding its supply side. Although gold production accounts only for 1.64% of existing above-ground gold, it still represents 64% of the gold market supply. Can we predict the price of gold by observing the gold mining index? As a reference for this article, I have chosen the Barron’s Gold Mining Index (BGMI), since it has been published since 1940 and thusly provides a long basis for analysis. Firstly, one has to know that shares of a mining company are

The most amusing question asked of the Jackass by clients and other people is when the system is going to break down. My usual answer is 2008, which causes a strange reaction, since a past date. Then they are given a tactful tongue lashing that they have failed to notice, detect, or discern properly the failed system in front of their noses.
