U.S. and UK Test Big Bank Collapse - Risk Of Bail-ins
Regulators from the U.S. and the UK will get together in a “war room” next week to see if they can cope with any possible fall-out when the next big bank topples over, the two countries said on Friday according to Reuters. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and the UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, on Monday will run a joint exercise simulating how they would prop up a large bank with operations in both countries that has landed in trouble.

Swiss Gold Referendum “Propaganda War” Begins
The referendum for the Swiss Gold Initiative is scheduled for November 30th and the propaganda war - between the Swiss National Bank (SNB) and the Swiss Parliament on one side and the Swiss People's Party (SVP) on the other - has begun and we expect it to escalate  as the day draws nearer. Swiss Gold Coin The SNB, who oppose the initiative, has warned that a 'yes' vote would severely hamper the ability of the central bank to conduct its business. A proposal that the SNB should hold a fifth of i

Market Report: Gold benefits from market uncertainty
The outlook for gold is now more positive than it has been for some time. After a prolonged period of low volatility as funds invested in ever-greater risk, markets have snapped and volatility has jumped. In short, we are swinging very suddenly from complacency to reality. Financial markets hit a serious air-pocket this week, with a collapse in US Treasury bond yields in a dash-for-cash, illustrated in the chart below. On Wednesday the yield fell from 2.21% to 1.87%, a move of over three whole p

Market Report: Market turbulence
This week has seen highly volatile equities (mostly down), bond yields sharply lower, the oil price hard down, and gold side-lined but recovering after a miserable month or two. On the news front, the S&P rating agency reminded us that Greece is likely to default, Germany released some horrible industrial production numbers, and the Federal Open Market Committee unexpectedly released dovish minutes. So what's it all about? This week more than any other it became clear that the global economy is

India Gold Demand Surges 450% and Bank of Russia Demand At 15 Year High
Demand for gold continues to be robust and has indeed increased significantly in recent weeks despite gold’s most recent paper driven gold weakness. Demand in China and India surged again and gold reserve diversification by the central bank of Russia hit a new record high in September as geopolitical tensions rose.  The seemingly insatiable appetite of the growing Indian middle class for gold is causing the government in India to again consider imposing sanctions on the importing of gold.  Gold

Gold market update
At the launch of our Perth Mint Certificate Program Approved Dealer GoldSilver Central today the journalists were interested in the views of Raphael Scherer of Degussa and myself on the gold market. I made a bottom/buy call on 18 September and the price subsequently held above $1180 and has strengthened since then. It is worth noting that not long ago the narrative around gold was quite negative, even in respect of China demand (see here for an example). In that article a dealer was quoted as s

Global Equity Shock as "Captured" System Starts to Crack
This week has seen some market volatility (see VIX Chart) reminiscent of the functioning market from days of old. The markets are spooked, bad news is overtaking good news and bearish views are becoming vogue. We are seeing a titanic battle taking place between the various bull and bear camps and they are starting to unleash some serious firepower.  The sleepy volumes of late have ticked up appreciably, and small investors are shifting in their seats nervously.

  Dimitri Speck: Platinum's price is suppressed like gold's and silver's
Analysis by market analyst and GATA consultant Dimitri Speck shows that the platinum market is manipulated just as the gold and silver markets are, largely through futures contract sales keyed to the morning and afternoon platinum price fixings. Speck writes: "There have long been hints that systematic manipulation of gold and silver prices via the futures markets is taking place -- also during the fixing. Due to the many similarities, it seems likely that the futures market also plays a decisi
