All Hell Will Break Loose In Paper and Physical Precious Metals Markets *Video* 
Despite the recent drops in gold and silver from their all-time highs just a few years ago, the fundamentals for owning precious metals as long-term investments have never been better. From a monetary perspective, governments around the world, especially in the West, have been printing money like there’s no tomorrow. This bodes well for precious metals strictly from the standpoint of currency debasement. As more paper dollars and euros are printed, the value of physical assets, especially gold a

Is Gold About to Stage a Massive Breakout?
Quietly, and with little fanfare, Gold has begun to make some very interesting moves… The precious metal has been in the doldrums sine 2013, moving sideways throughout the last 18 months. However, today Gold looks like it wants to move higher: This is a multi-year triangle formation. We’ve had numerous touches on the trendlines, so it’s a well-established pattern. And more and more it looks like Gold wants to breakout to the upside. Indeed, we get additional signs of bullishness from the m

Market Report: New silver fix procedure from today
I shall come to this important event later in this market report; but first, our customary look at this week's trading. From Monday through Wednesday the gold price found firm support at the $1305 level before gaining a few bucks to $1313 by close of play last night. However, the underlying position is more positive than this limited move suggests, with the Swap category on Comex appearing to be in some difficulty. Swaps are mostly non-market making bullion banks. Their net short position on 5th

Deflationary Straw Man
By Gary TanashianNo matter the debates over inflation vs. deflation, increasing employment vs. sound monetary policy or systemic health vs. fragility (and whatever else is flying around in Jackson Hole this week), the CPI marches onward and upward.  That is the system and it is predicated on creating enough money out of thin air while inflation signals are (somehow) held at bay.The Straw Man* in this argument lives in the idea that inflation is not always destructive, that inflation can be used

At the same time volatility fell to as close to zero as you can get. The week started with the gold price at $1241 and until yesterday at 1.00pm UK time stuck to a tight range of $7 centred on $1244.

At the end of July global equity bull markets had a moment of doubt, falling three or four per cent.

At the same time the Russell 2000, an index of small-cap US companies fell an exceptional 9%, and more worryingly it looks like it has lost bullish momentum as shown in the chart below. This indicates a possible double-top formation in the making. Meanwhile yield-spreads on junk bonds widened si
