 Lessons of History, Part 1: Not a Mention of Money  (5)
 - John Rubino - Dollar Collapse

You ask, "Was the chaos of WWI, the Great Depression and WWII caused in part by the gold standard". On the contrary, WW1 was planned since 1890 and would not have occurred if the Fed had not taken over in 1913 and replaced America's 100% gold backed money with 40% backed money allowing it to cheat, counterfeit and fund both WW1 and WW2. By 1945 only 17% of dollars were gold backed. If you can cheat you will cheat. The 30s Depression was caused by the Fed stealing America's gold and sending it to Hitler. See this for the full suppressed story.

The entire last 100 years was a slow counterfeiting operation by the foreign-owned Fed and few Americans realize it. Most still believe it's a government agency bene...

 Silver Poised to Surge  (3)
 - Adam Hamilton - Zealllc
And if the price? goes down further won't the speculative longs have to cover their positions thus forcing the so called bargain price lower still, thus pushing through so called support levels blah blah blah…

As for the claim that silver is poised to surge? big? because it is sitting on support,I will ask this question…how many times, have you Joe Public, seen gold,silver,indexes, stocks, commodities etc fall through support?

Essentially,Zeal is telling you to buy now at this 'Support' level/ price/? ( sorry but I don't get the author's use of ??? everywhere) but it is all just speculation and gambling. Good luck on that! Trying to pick bottoms is fraught with much risk.
Best to wait till the price? is going up and that is too early to call at ...

 Warren Buffet on Gold  (5)
 - Food for thought - 24hgold
The Martian will notice, if he observes long enough, that very occasionally these vaulted reserves are spent. In the second world war, Britain spent a significant part of her gold reserve in buying essential supplies from the United States. Without these vital supplies, Britain would have collapsed. An important role for gold reserves, even in the absence of a monetary gold standard, is to serve as insurance at a time of extreme threat to the nation. We all hope that they are never used, and fortunately they rarely are, but that does not invalidate keeping them.

 Bondholders “Bailed In” In Austria – EU Bondholders Today, U.S. Depositors Tomorrow?
 - Mark O'Byrne -
"“Bail-in is now the rule” as Irish finance Minister Michael Noonan warned in June 2013. Noonan admitted that the move to not maintain deposits as sacrosanct was a “revolutionary move.”

The one thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.
In the USA, after the Banking Act of 1933, deposits suddenly were insured (in 1934 - $2500, today - $250,000 for a 100X increase).
Prior to that, depositors were wise to use due diligence when choosing a bank.
Banks failed and were shuttered.
Deposits gone.
So "revolutionary"?
No, the correct term is "reversion to the mean".

It will soon become obvious that the term, "counter-party risk" is just a euphemism for "predictable collateral damage".
So what risk premium ...

 Maguire says HSBC will close London vaults; Celente asks where GLD metal goes
 - Chris Powell - GATA
Excellent work. Haven't checked your maths but presume them correct.
As for Maguire, I don't believe a word that comes out of his mouth. 
Read this articleReply
Answer To :Esimon - 3/15/2015 at 8:08 PM GMT
I think people need to do some math, before making alarmist or incorrect comments:

The reason HSBC is closing their London Vaults is because they
only have enough gold left in the GLD to fit a room 20 ft x 10 ft x 8 ft.

Here is the math:

Gold in GLD =$30 Billion Dollars=25,000,000 ounces=62,500 x400 ounce

One (1) 400 ounce bar is approx 44 cu inches
62,500 x 400 ounce bars =2,750,000 cu inches or 2750000/1728=1591
cubic feet

A room 20x10x8 is 1600 cubic feet.

That is not much Gold for supposedly a large gold ETF? and certainly,
you don't need 7 vaults to store their gold:)

 A Green Light for the American Empire  (13)
 - Ron Paul - 
What a lot of patriot twaddle.

Paul avoids mention of the humiliating defeat in Vietnam and fails to mention that superior military capabilities cannot win war against an opponent who hates yiu. Paul also fails to mention that America is hated in many parts of the planet.

Readers should understand that nations which have their assets and resources plundered by a cunning nation will not always play ball. And then whem America meddles in the politics of other coutries you make enemies you never knew yiu had.

Paul needs to stop chest thumping and visit othee countries: not the official staged encounters but rather real citizens. The truth will set you free!!

 Gold Price to Surge Over $2,400 Per Ounce – Doubling Asian Demand in “Asian Century”
 - Mark O'Byrne -
The current price of gold doubling in 15 years is a compound rate of about 5%. Hardly ¨soaring¨ and questionably equal to the real rate of inflation. By doubling demand I would expect the price of gold to be affected more. It seems to me that this article is predicting another 15 years of price suppression. Although I think we are unlikely to make 15 years before the great fiat reckoning.

No doubt Hoffman is a prolific writer, but his problem is that it is basically the same story every time.
The world as we know it is coming to an end and to preserve one's wealth and protect yourself, buy precious metals and do it now,get them from MF.
Talk about flogging a dead horse.
Gold has been, as he has put it "manipulated down" by the PTB, from $1920 to $1160 since Sept 2011 and, of course it will not go below $1000 because, as you guessed it, 1) the manipulation will stop and 2) the world is running out of gold because supply is not keeping up with demand. No 2 is utter nonsense.
Of course during this same period you would have been completely stupid not to sell out of all your S&P and buy PM because, well it (the 500) went to record highs!

 Gold Sucks!  (3)
 - Gary Tanashian - Biwii
The last chart is getting there, but it is not comparing comparable things. What is needed is a chart of the ratio of the value, in US dollars, of all the gold in the world to the value (also in US dollars) of the US monetary base. These are comparable because (1) both quantities represent total amounts of money, in the same units (dollars), and (2) both play comparable roles as primary candidates for the world's reserve monetary base over the entire period from 1970 until now---albeit gold playing Cinderella who, apart from her brief appearance at the ball (ca. 1980), has been pushed into the background behind the ugly $ister.

The chart would still tell a story similar to the present one, although not sloping down as much to the right because the quantity o...

 Gold to Fuel Silver Upleg
 - Adam Hamilton - Zealllc
The author confuses question marks with apostrophes,but I will forgive his oversight here.
However,I cannot forgive him for the complete and utter nonsense he has drivelled on about in this article.

Refer last paragraph…you can make a lot of dollars if you buy gold and silver NOW.
Aside from the fact that I see no real reason to buy either of the PM?s ( ha ha) at this point, he shows a total lack of understanding of why PM's should be purchased,(for want of a better word) in the first place.
You do not buy gold to make dollars.
You want to get rid of (or swap) your legal tender for money, AKA, Gold and Silver!!!

 Gold Sentiment Not Bearish Enough
 - Jordan Roy Byrne - The Daily Gold
Gold has been severely manipulated ever since the shifty eyed crook nixon closed the conversion of devils dollars for GOLD.
That GOLD managed to reach $800 in the eighties and $1900 in 2011 is quite remarkable given that even then there was
manipulation going on via the Cheating Metal Exchange,Lousy Bullion Manipulators Association,Algorythm traders etc.
Golds natural course has even been distorted by the IMF,WB ,Central banks and massive hedge funds........that said how
can anyone believe CHARTS with all this manipulative data going in to their make up.Shit in Shit out as the OLD maxim
Now in the five decades or more that I have been in the market I have never ever seen GOLD and GOLD SHARES or any

 War Games: Russia Threatens Denmark, NATO Intercepts Russian Jets, NATO Launches Drills on Russian Border

It's obvious that US wants a war with Russia. I don't get the motives. Perhaps the experts see that the american economy is deteriorating and that the dollar domination will not prevail. And the remedy is an european war. In every european war the americans come as victors and they dominate the world for some decades. They need urgently another european war.

 The Big Picture  (4)
Very interesting perspective, and on target. Stock buybacks add no value to the company overall, and only work to raise the stock price. The board of directors must approve something like this, but very often they are also large shareholders and stand to gain in the higher resulting stock price, for as we all know a fixed numerator divided by a smaller denominator results in a higher value. I've never seen any reason a company should buy back its own stock, unless they have reason to believe that a person or company is trying to gain control--they can then buy back stock as a preventive measure. Otherwise, the money is wasted and what could have been a dividend becomes wasted money. Then again, from the interest of the stock-holding insiders, one's investment ha...

 Gold & Silver Market Morning
 - Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
Your conclusion that gold and silver will continue to decline is disheartening; but HONEST. The best part is when you say ~ "The news out of the U.S. was positive with new jobs created in the last month hitting 295,000 and unemployment down to 5.5%. This convinced investors that the U.S. economy has gained traction and will continue to grow at a strong rate."

Julian, I notice you didn't say "convinced me" but rather said "convinced investors". Yes, the paper shuffle and the numbers game "convinced investors" ~ but ~ we Worker Bees are CERTAIN: The U.S. economy is NOT gaining any traction. Investors must be quite a naive (gullible, simple, ingenuous) lot. Luckily I'm part of the 99% of humanity ~ who has no money to "invest"!

 Financial Repression Authority with Mebane Faber
 - Gordon Long - Market Analytics
"The US is only about 50% of global market cap but most US investors have a 'hometown bias" of having 70% of their portfolio in US securities. Faber has found that it consistently ranges from as low as 65 to as high as 85%. Meanwhile, when considered on a GDP basis the US is only about a fifth to 25% and on a valuation basis is the third most expensive. This would suggest the US has a headwind, especially after a six year run. An exposure of at least half to foreign investment seems more reasonable to Meb Faber."

And none of those foreign countries would engage in "capital controls" or "nationalization" of foreign owned assets?
It's your money, do with it as you inevitably will.
But spare us your whining.

"Admittedly there has been a production surplus since the beginning of 2014 but that is nothing new and is forecast to be back in balance by the end of this year. The increased production, then, is in response to increasing demand; hardly a recipe for a protracted period of low prices. "

Yes, increased demand when wages have flat-lined for years.

Have you looked at what is sitting off of Long Beach?
