Gene Arensberg: Elephant tracks signal upward reversal in gold
At the Got Gold Report today, Gene Arensberg identifies what he calls "elephant tracks," the record of big investment banks closing a large amount of gold short positions amid what is only a small decline in the price, a signal for an upward reversal. Arensberg's commentary is headlined "Goldman Sachs: Kinross Gold No Longer Worth Selling" and it's posted at the GGR here: http://www.gotgoldreport.com/2014/04/goldman-sachs-kinross-gold-no-longe...

Safe Deposit Boxes Are Not Safe for Silver & Gold Buyers 
Many silver and gold buyers forget one of the main reasons to buy physical silver and gold bullion today is due to the world's current fragile financial system. Some even make the mistake of buying physical bullion and then storing it in a Safe Deposit Box at their local bank.  Why is that a mistake? Safe "deposits" held within regulated bank boxes are not very safe, nor private, nor FDIC insured deposits. Here are some major drawbacks of putting bullion into Safe Deposit Boxes: - Mos

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Ho Hum
Gold and silver were under some modest pressure today after the run they had on Friday. There is still little substantial movement in the warehouses and a daily trickle of those standing for delivery on the April contract. For those fans amongst us, the season premiere of Game of Thrones was last night, and off cable watchers swarmed the 'HBO TO GO' application bringing it to its knees for a time. I am also informed by my studious children that George R. R. Martin has 'leaked' a new chapter

Renewed Estimates of Chinese Gold Demand & their Geopolitical Strategy
By Alasdair Macleod Posted 04 April 2014 I have been revisiting estimates of the quantities of gold being absorbed by China, and yet again I have had to revise them upwards.  Analysis of the detail discovered in historic information in the context of China's gold strategy has allowed me for the first time to make reasonable estimates of vaulted gold, comprised of gold accounts at commercial banks, mine output and scrap. There is also compelling evidence mine output and scrap are being accumul

John Ralson Saul: Re-evaluating the Current Approach To Trade and Globalisation
Does globalization actually deliver what we thought it would? There are a range of choices between free trade and protectionism.  Ideological commitments and purity may prevent a meaningful discussion of the situation. Is there really a surplus of goods, or is trade organized around a plutocratic economic model that is providing a scarcity of wages for labour? When local laws are leveled by the economic realities of globalization, can nations retain their own character and choice of govern

NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metal Trusts and Funds 
Gold is still outperforming silver by quite a bit with the ratio at 65 to 1. I think that is either the sign of a developing bottom, with the high beta of silver not yet having kicked in with the return of positive sentiment, or possibly that this is more of a 'flight to safety' phenomenon. A third possibility is that gold is starting to show the effects of a squeeze on physical supply.  Sales of silver eagles are certainly robust.
