 ‘Saturation’ Now Economic Reality in China. But this is Worse
 - Wolf Richter - 
Chinese Made Buicks in America? This is a great article which once again ties China's economic collapse
to its likely effect on the US economy! Of even more interest was your reference at the end to the
possibility of Chinese-made Buicks being sold in America. That would be yet another slap in the face to the US manufacturing base, after Ford and Oreos.

Also, the referenced article mentions that half of GM earnings are from China. I would assume then that the recent success of GM (and maybe other automakers) in an otherwise lackluster economy is due not only to subprime and extended term lending (itself a disaster waiting to happen), but also to an unrepeatable performance in a collapsing economy. Lets throw in a Chinese currency devaluation ? for...

 The ideal percentage allocation between gold & silver
 - Bron Suchecki - Perth Mint
Of course this depends on the future to mirror the recent past.
This is the problem with technical analysis.
You are betting the future on the past actions of the herd of gamblers who were betting with paper using ridiculously low margins.
Do you honestly think that is such a wise course of action?

Compound this with just a few decades of data and suddenly you are surveying the financial world through the equivalent of a toilet paper tube.
Even 3 decades of data is a tiny subset of the past.

I would offer a different perspective.
Look back 5, 10, 20 centuries.
What was the operative coin of the realm?

Hint, it was silver.
Gold was used for very large transactions and provided a more compact store of wealth.

 The Fed Talks And The Market Tanks. That's Different
 - John Rubino - Dollar Collapse
The Fed talks to "The Hand". That is , the hand of the financial industry that feeds it, and which it in turn misbegottenly nurtures. The Market, despite speaking an entirely different and obscure language, may finally be talking to Reality. Maybe they use hand signs.

 Reader Question: Is Gold Manipulated?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
"Even though I was on the right side of the inflation/deflation debate, with hyperinflationists and death-to-the-dollar advocates looking extremely foolish along the way, ..."

Ah yes, so far so good and all it took was redefining a few words by accepting the drivel peddled by Irving Fisher back in 1933.
Currently inflation and deflation are all about debt/collateral issues and not the amount of currency as it was in the past.

Of course this demands that the definition of hyperinflation MUST be about the same debt/collateral issues.
And herein is the problem with adopting new definitions.
If inflation is an increase in debt supported by the appreciation and increase of collateral, then hyperinflation must be a spectacular appreciation i...

I contend that the Democrats are socialists and the Republicans are fascists.

 Cash-strapped Venezuela may sell gold, Citigroup says
 - Chris Powell - GATA
Pure speculation by Citigroup and the trotted out by Bloomberg.
Then foisted on more readers by GATA.

Where is the evidence?
Probable default by Venezuela is NOT evidence.
As the Bloomberg article points out, banks won't be willing to accept gold held in Caracas as collateral.
Perhaps GATA, Bloomberg and Citigroup don't understand the reason that Venezuela repatriated their gold.

If it looked like you might default on a debt to those who financed you profligate lifestyle, would you leave your assets where they could be easily seized?
The bankruptcy laws are meaningless when it comes to the choice between eating and satisfying a debt.
Now consider this on a country-wide basis and the socioeconomic pressures faced by the ru...

 The myth of gold price manipulation  (5)
 - Clif Droke - 
I am not interested in selling bars or fortune telling.
Your "herd" will sell at the very bottom which may have already occurred but nobody knows where that is or was, until established.
As such averaging down is a potentially disastrous plan for the herd because they are the ones who establish the bottom.

Things can change rapidly but when it comes to gold buying I only look at a monthly chart.
Look at the 5 month M.A to cross the 20 month M.A and you can be fairly certain that a bottom has been set.
I am not seeing that yet.

Thx for the comment.

You are right about the huge differences between trading and investing.
But!!! You are wrong about buying solely on the way up.

For a maximum return on investments, buy on the way down and sell on the way up.
As the old saying goes, nobody will be ringing the bell when the market turns.

In the field of logic, an easy way to discern a fallacy of logic is by using the extreme case.
If buying gold as it is rising is true, then buying after the price has gone parabolic must be true as well.
More greater fools have entered the market by then, ergo more selling opportunities.
And buying at the top is truth at the extreme. Obviously not a good idea.

Intellectual honesty requires the same extreme line of logic for buying on the ...

Actually I think Droke makes a lot of sense here.
Fact is the "price of gold" in $USD is heading south east.
Technically I see no reason to buy gold or silver at this point.

Basically there is much confusion as there is a huge difference between trading gold on/off and buying gold for investment.
Bottom line…buy gold metal when you see it going up i.e north east, and do not swap it for paper,ever.

 Why The PM Sector Is Now A Contrarian?s Dream  (3)
 - Clive Maund - 
I do not agree with this article. TPTB have pushed down metals so hard that most miners are debt laden to the point of exhaustion. Sure, a few will win in any runup, but not many. Most are poorly managed and cash-poor with few funding choices. It is just too late, absent a huge (like 70%) rally in metals - ain't gonna happen soon. A lot of these miners are going to have a chapter 11. Then their stock price goes to nothing. Then they are a deal, perhaps, but the banks will fold them into their asset base for pennies to get the in-earth treasure at a fraction of value.

It's not hard to see their game, if you look.

 Another Monday, Another Batch Of Brutal Numbers
 - John Rubino - Dollar Collapse
Yup ...Japan was a hot number 20-30 (?) years ago. Buying prime property here in the states , acquiring major manufacturing, innovative in auto manufacturing, bright young talent in the electronic field and the properties in Japan shot to the moon. Now it appears that major wrinkles have formed and the body is heavily sagging. Now it appears that her vengeance is showing spitting out Fukushima upon us whether by accident or by design of her and others. After all Japan could have just been pimping for major players. Sort of reminds me of Bob Dylan's " Rolling Stone"

 The myth of gold price manipulation  (5)
 - Clif Droke - 
"Certainly any investor worth his salt would not be so foolish as to risk his hard-earned capital on an extended period where markets are showing signs of undergoing distribution (i.e. organized selling) or other periods of extreme volatility. "

Really?
Obviously then those of us that buy when the market forces a commodity below the price that the fundamentals would support must be idiots.

If the so-called manipulators drive the price low, wouldn't it be prudent for the value investor to buy low in hopes of selling high once the rebound occurs?
Or should the same investor wait for the price to rise substantially and then climb on board?
Perhaps we should wait until the price goes parabolic, yes?

I would argue that every market i...

Thanks for the encouraging words for those of us who are personally optimistic, but with a decidedly pessimistic outlook on the rest of the world.
You can't argue with Clint Eastwood, nor apparently, with Donald Trump. He is the only candidate who even suggests that we can really restore truth, justice , and the American Way. The others are just pessimists with a plan, working within the same old failed system.

 The myth of gold price manipulation  (5)
 - Clif Droke - 

You ask, "why invest in gold at all if one truly believes the market for it is manipulated?". Because historically there are no other worthwhile investments that will preserve our wealth after the dollar declines. You treat gold bugs as cry babies overstating the manipulation effects. It's costing the Fed nearly $2B to drag the gold price down $75/oz. Who else can afford those kinds of losses in order to artificially support the dollar and suppress it's competition - gold?

You're right the stampede to gold hasn't occurred in the West but it certainly has in the East and the price is not reflecting this. Is $10,000/oz realistic? According to Mike Malloney, eventually the quantity of money printed and quantity of gold available will balance out and ...

 James McShirley: Kitco inadvertently acknowledges that the gold price is suppressed
 - Chris Powell - GATA
"Neils and Peter both just inadvertently admitted manipulation without ever saying the "M" word. "

No they didn't admit manipulation. They said exactly what they said.
GATA parsed their statements and then manipulated what was said to reflect GATA's mantra.

Perhaps the perceived minor shortage of coins is only due to a shortage of coin blanks.
This would suggest a bottle-neck in the manufacturing process but in no way provides evidence of an actual metal shortage.
Nor does it lend credence to the idea of illegal market manipulation.

There is just one rule to learn.
Every participant in every market attempts to manipulate the transaction in their favor.
Some are more successful than others.
Never forget that economy o...

AN ASTOUNDING EXPOSURE

What no one recognizes to this day is that the Fed stole America's gold and shipped it to Germany causing bank runs and the Depression. Later Prof Anthony Sutton describes the Wall St funding of Hitler that also few realize.

House Banking Chairman Louis McFadden (1920-31) called on congress in excerpts in the below speech from the congressional record to join him in the arrest of the Fed for theft and treason.

Congress was scared sh*tless to join him and left him alone to be assassinated two years later on their third attempt.

To this day we have NYT economist Paul Krugman and Ben Bernanke stating the cause of the 30s Depression was the fact that we just didn't print enough
money even though w...
