The Fed is Good for Gold, Report 25 September, 2016
It’s almost like magic. The Fed can say something, or in the case of this Wednesday it can say nothing, and gold and especially silver get a boost of rocket fuel. Actually, the Fed said both yes to rate hikes—in the future—and no to a rate hike now. This was good, if not for people, at least for gold. Well, if not for gold, at least the price of the metal. And especially silver. The price of silver had been up sharply on Monday, it inched up on Tuesday, and shot up another 60 cents on Wednesday,

Trump Criticizes FED for Creating ‘Fake Economy’ and Calls for Audit
Most politicians limit their comments about the Federal Reserve to sheer praise. Know thy master. Donald Trump has followed in the footsteps of Ron Paul, with his sharp critique of the FED and harsh words for Janet Yellen in particular.Donald Trump has put his name firmly on this short list of politicians that dare to criticize the Federal Reserve. He told Yellen that she should be ashamed of herself for politically-motivated actions as FED Chief. In particular, Trump has accused the FED and Yel

Yen Rally Shows Investor Skepticism to BOJ’s Latest Easing Salvo
21-Sep (Bloomberg) — The yen rose against the dollar, reversing the slide that was the initial reaction to the Bank of Japan saying it would adopt a more flexible approach to expanding stimulus. The Japanese currency’s rebound to a more than three-week high suggests investors are both skeptical officials will achieve their long-term policy goal of boosting inflation and that they’re already shifting their focus to the Federal Reserve’s policy decision later today. The yen earlier dropped more th

Dangerous Times for stocks - U.S. is headed toward stagflation - We’re not in a stable equilibrium. It’s a good time for Gold and Silver!
Most global financial markets struggling to rise, central bank policies are placing interest rates at all time lows. These are not producing the results wanted [but are holding deflation at bay]. Important governments are emasculated by political stalemate, while the structure of the E.U. is facing what Junker calls an ‘existential problem’ [translated is under threat from an array of problems].Hence, the comments by Alan Greenspan, Paul Singer and several others demand our attention. In this ar

  Is the Fed surreptitiously tightening?
The following chart shows that on a monthly closing basis, bank reserves held at the Fed peaked in August of 2014 at $2.79T and by August-2016 had shrunk to $2.35T. This amounts to a $440B decline in bank reserves over the space of two years. Furthermore, $320B of this $440B decline happened since last October. Does this mean that while the financial world vigorously debates whether the Fed will/should take a ‘baby step’ along the rate-hiking path next week, behind the scenes the Fed has been ti

A Little Perspective and Market Notes
The opening segment of this week's Notes From the Rabbit Hole was intended to be a quick blurb but went on to become a five page exercise. It is shared publicly not so much because it is hard core analysis (which the rest of the report took care of), but because after a week like last week I think being a little wordy can be for the better.I had a difficult week last week; a couple things had gone wrong and my schedule was just ridiculous. On Wednesday I was feeling

US Recession Jitters Stoke Fears of Impotent Fed and Fiscal Paralysis – UK Telegraph
Andy’s Notes: Once again, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard takes the cake and points out something that otherwise would have been left unsaid – that the FOMC must have room to drop rates in their idiotic Keynesian world. Absent that, they can just pump QE by the trillions and buy up everything in sight, which is probably the whole idea as we’ve pointed out in the past. An ominous paper by the US Federal Reserve has become the hottest document in high finance. It was intended to reassure us that the world

  Hyperinflation Versus Deflationary Collapse 
If the thunder don't get you, then the lightning will.The Grateful Dead, The Wheel(lyrics)In the world of phenomena, everything has a beginning and an end; and today, the bankers' endgame is moving closer to its inevitable resolution and demise. The question is no longer if, it is when and how.The relationship between paper money and gold is causal in central banking's collapse. When paper money was backed by gold, it (1) gave the bankers' paper money its value and (2) con

Gold: The Good and the Not Yet Good
The GoodThursday's ISM report was Thing 1 in improving the backdrop for gold.  But it was a small Thing.  Friday's August Payrolls report was Thing 2, and it was a better Thing.  Gold and especially the gold mining sector are invigorated fundamentally during economic easing, not during economic growth phases, inflationary or otherwise.In this post we'll review two of the charts (gold vs. commodities and gold vs. stock markets) we have used since before the new gold bull market b

Are the Gold Guys Ready For Prime Time?
For now, everybody is terrified of rocking the boat. They sense that things could easily spiral into crisis – currency crisis, banking insolvency, derivatives breakdown, sovereign default, pension insolvency, perhaps accompanied by some changes in governments themselves. The stock market might go down. But, the boat will probably rock itself before too long. There’s a chance that monetary reform will begin to happen as early as 2018. China and Russia are already getting ready. Judy Shelton, a w

  Above-ground Gold Stock - How Much Is There and Why Does it Matter? 
To understand the price of gold, the relevant supply is the total supply, not the new supply coming to market during the last year, week or month. The supply of gold consists of all of the supply that exists, and the relevant demand is the total demand, not the new demand coming to market during any year. For gold, there is always a large stockpile, and it never gets smaller. The vast majority of all the gold mined throughout human history still exists and is held either in bars, coins, or jewel

Why the Convoluted Message From Yellen?
Why the tough talk out of one side of her mouth and 'other policy tools' language out of the other (ref. Yellen Lays Out Tools. )?  Oh, I don't know.  Maybe it has something to do with this.The stock market has merrily followed money supply aggregates upward since 2009.  When money supply decelerates the market corrects.  When money supply ramps upward the market ramps upward.  Money supply has been rolling over since 2014, which was not coincidentally when the first tremors beg

Hyperinflation is coming to the US…
but possibly not in your lifetime. As I mentioned in a blog post back in April of last year, I have never been in the camp that exclaims “buy gold because the US is headed for hyperinflation!”. Instead, at every step along the way since the inauguration of the TSI web site in 2000 my view was that the probability of the US experiencing hyperinflation within the next 2 years — on matters such as this there is no point trying to look ahead more than 2 years — is close to zero. That remains my view

Gold Bars Near 5-Week Dollar Low as Fed's 'Full Employment' Rate-Rise Hints Meet Falling Inflation
GOLD BARS traded in London's wholesale market recovered from their fourth dip below $1320 per ounce in 4 days on Tuesday, returning from the UK's summer Bank Holiday near 5-week lows as betting rose that the US Fed will raise its key interest rate at this month's FOMC meeting despite an expected slowdown in US jobs creation. Wall Street consensus says Friday's official estimate of non-farm payrolls will show a rise of 180,000 for August, well d

“Why Case Against Gold Is Wrong” – James Rickards

Gold and Silver Fundamentals Up
The dollar exchange rates of the metals fell this week, with that of silver falling more. Friday’s trading action was notable, because at first markets (including the US stock market) interpreted comments by Fed Chair Janet Yellen as “dovish”—i.e. low interest rates will continue. This means rising money supply, and everyone “knows” that that means rising prices. Especially of assets such as stocks and gold and silver. But then Fed Vice Chair Stanley Fischer gave reiterated that the Fed may hike

What Is "Sterilization"?
The word "sterilization" is one of those economic terms -- like "inflation," "deflation," the "balance of payments," and several others -- with no clear meaning. It is applied to a wide variety of situations which are actually very different, in their causes and outcomes. This is confusing; and, like those other terms as well, it tends to be used by people who are confused. The basic idea behind "sterilization" is a situation in which a central bank increases its holdings of one asset and dec

How GDP conceals inflation
There are so many things wrong with GDP, that even mainstream economists are becoming vaguely aware of its shortcomings.A good friend drew my attention to a Bloomberg article on this subject, which at least shows a growing awareness that there’s a problem. Unfortunately, this awareness does not extend to its underlying nature.GDP statistics only capture an incomplete snapshot of the economy at one moment in time. Since the economy is continually evolving, that snapshot is immediately out of date
