Prepare for Global Gold Confiscation and Orwell's 1984, Warns Rickards 
Microchips embedded in the arms of citizens to track their activities, the total destruction of the middle classes and a cashless economy where an authoritarian state can freeze the accounts of dissenting citizens excluding them from all economic activity….. These are all part of the cheery scenario painted by the highly respected author and IMF-insider with connections to the Pentagon, Jim Rickards in his most recent article for Agora Financial.

Scientists Discover Gold Grows On Trees 
ALL ABOUT GOLD Money doesnâ??t grow on trees, but according to scientists from CSIRO, gold most certainly does! Theyâ??ve discovered tiny â??nuggetsâ?? in the leaves and branches of eucalyptus trees growing in the Kalgoorlie region of Western Australia. CSIRO geochemist Dr Mel Lintern said the trees act as hydraulic pumps, drawing up water containing gold from tens of metres beneath the surface. â??As the gold is likely to be toxic to the plant, itâ??s moved to the leaves and branches where 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

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

As promised in my Monday post, below is an updated chart of kilobar movements out of Comex warehouses. You can see the clustering of withdrawals in advance of gold bottoming, a total so far of 24 tonnes.

Omniscient Federal Reserve Captures The Capital Market, For Now. Gold Beckons.
A cursory glance at the various financial news media this morning shows nothing particularly unusual for these unusual times. The ECB have paraded a list for stress tested banks and the market shrugged. However, there is a disturbing thread running through most of the stories to which we have become immune but which would have been considered highly unusual at almost any time in the twentieth century. And that thread is the influence of the Federal Reserve in practically every key market in the

Gold quiet on Monday waiting for FOMC and next short term cycle to Nov 7th
Lots of economic reports and the FOMC starts on Tuesday and ends Wednesday. Europe’s mess gets worse and worse and so does everyone else’s. Also watch the US dollar. IF it breaks above 87.20 on a closing basis, 90 becomes the next target. Gold reached the blue trend line which was the uptrend line that was broken in September turning the medium term trend back down. Support is first at the green moving average at 1225.50.

Fed Ends QE? Greenspan Says Gold “Measurably” “Higher” In 5 Years
As expected, the Fed announced yesterday it would end its six year money printing and bond buying programme. Given the fragile nature of the U.S. economy, Eurozone economy and indeed the global economy, Fed critics continue to believe that this may be a short term hiatus prior to a resumption of QE, if asset prices start to fall or economic growth falters. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan admitted yesterday to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), that QE and the Fed’s bond buyi

Gold and Silver near final support before 1156-1172
Gold chart We discussed last night on the website either 1192-1195 or 1202-1207 as the best potential for a Thursday low. As it turned out, 1195 was the low. While longer-term cycles AND the initial test of 1--2 year support (1179.4--1181.4) favor Gold’s Oct. 6th low holding longer, the weekly trend pattern does not yet eliminate a potential retest of that low or even a break. That is due to the fact that Gold rebounded at the right time and high enough for a potential setup that would neutral

Scotland Says "No" - Fallout May Impact Pound
The result of the Scottish independence referendum was announced early this morning, with 55.3% of voters wanting to stay in the United Kingdom (UK) and 44.7% wanting Scotland to become an independent nation.  Voter turnout was exceptionally high at nearly 85% (about 3.6 million people), which was not surprising given the importance of the referendum. To some extent a cloud of economic and currency uncertainty that was hanging over Scotland and the rest of the UK has now been lifted. Share pric

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

  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.

Market Report: Strong dollar undermines precious metals
Precious metals have had to endure a week of gathering dollar strength, which is at least partly the result of problems specific to the euro, yen and sterling. The result is gold has fallen a further $30 over the week, and silver by about $0.70c. The first chart is of gold and open interest on Comex. Over the last two weeks the gold price has been falling while open interest has been rising: in other words paper gold has been flooding the market. This is illustrated in the second chart, of Mana
