Market Report: Relative calm for PMs in wild markets
This week has been extremely volatile for oil, currencies and stock markets. Against this background gold and silver have drifted sideways to slightly lower, which given the dollar's strong performance is almost a positive result. Along with a collapsing oil price on Monday and Tuesday, the Russian ruble fell from 58 to the USD on Monday to 77 the following day. It was clear that Russian oligarchs were getting out of rubles as fast as they could, hence the steep fall. By yesterday things had cal

  Gold Stocks Shine in 2015
Gold stocks have suffered a miserable few years, becoming a laughingstock even among contrarians.But this despised sector’s seemingly-endless downward spiral has left gold stocks vastly undervalued relative to gold, which drives their profits.The fundamentally-absurd disconnect between gold-stock price levels and gold can’t last.And it sure looks ready to end, making 2015 the year gold stocks shine again.Any stock is a fractional ownership stake in a corporation, entitling shareholders to partic

853 Points of Infamy
First off, let me re-emphasize the most valuable piece of financial information imaginable – which I have discussed ad nauseum for the past decade.  Which is in executing your personal due diligence process, to make sure your information sources include the handful of “good, smart people” that both know what they’re talking about, and have your best interests at heart.  Here at the Miles Franklin Blog, I have found a “home away from home,” as for the first time in my 25-year career, I truly beli

A Time to Prepare
The observation of modern finance through the lens of sound money requires an onion peeler. Each time I imagine onions, I think of my soft contact lens patients; the ones who abuse them.  I think of the patients who wear them too long or through periods of mild irritation or redness and practice poor hygiene. Soft contact lenses mask normal corneal sensitivity. They act like tiny onion goggles. With soft lenses in place, one can literally chop onions and not feel the normal irritating sensation

The Catalysts that Caused the Crashes
The Toronto Venture Exchange (TSXV) and its predecessor, the Vancouver Stock Exchange (VSE), have always been dominated by listings of micro-cap resource stocks. Most companies have focused on exploration and mining of precious and/or industrial metals, but a significant number have been involved in oil and gas exploration and production. These companies, commonly known as ?the juniors?, are

Geological Catastrophes Waiting to Happen or TEOTWAWKI 
3rd Stone from the Sun (Jimi Hendrix and Chad Chandler, 1967): Hendrix: Star fleet to scout ship, please give your position. Over. Chandler: I am in orbit around the third planet of star known as Sun. Over. Hendrix: May this be Earth? Over. Chandler: Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent species. Over. Hendrix: I think we should take a look. Throughout its 4.5 billion year history, the geology of the Earth has created an environment that allows life to thrive or causes it to die.

NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metals Trust and Funds - Time To Get Real
'How did you know?' So asks the new reader(s) at Le Café, during some protracted exchanges over the past week in which I characterized this drop in stock prices as a corrective move, à la the familiar wash and rinse, that was likely to end around the time of the FOMC meeting. Things are dire.  The economy is awful.  War is breaking out.  Stocks are in a bubble.  Ack, ack. Yada, yada. And in the face of all this faux fundamental turmoil, I suggested one or two price levels at which st

'One-Way Traffic' to Buy Gold Post-Fed in Asia Fades as Swiss Rates Go Negative, Indian Gold Premiums Too
BUY GOLD bids faded in late London trade Thursday, taking spot prices down through $1200 and back to $1194 per ounce – the level seen before the US Fed changed key wording in Wednesday's statement on when Dollar interest rates might rise. Instead of waiting a "considerable time", the Fed will now be "patient" before hiking rates from the 0% imposed since the start of 2009. Today the Swiss National Bank cut the interest rate it pays on commercial bank deposits at the central bank to a targe

Zero Hedge fail on undocumented gold supply story
Zero Hedge really dropped the ball on the Bloomberg story that commodity trading firm Gunvor Group was giving up trading physical precious metals partly due to "difficulties in finding steady supplies of gold where the origin could be well documented". Firstly, their spinning of the story came out three days after the Bloomberg story. That is an eternity when we have been told by experts that "the London hub is failing" (more on that in a future post) - I mean, the bullion banking system could h

Will Tomorrow Be The “Yellen Reversal?”
As John Steinbeck famously wrote, the “best laid plans o’ mice and men often go awry.”  Which is exactly the situation the world’s most evil organization, the U.S. Federal Reserve, faces at tomorrow’s FOMC meeting. Currently chaired by a career banker puppet, the Fed has been so lulled by the “success” of six years of market manipulation, it actually believes it can “guide” the economy to prosperity if it “paints by numbers” the scheme it cooked up, most likely, at an April 11th “closed-door” me

The Re-Emergence of Real Money
I keep thinking back to the story I related several weeks back; of how, with not a shred of knowledge of the character or intelligence of George W. Bush, I voted for him in the 2000 Presidential election – out of “fear” that the oilfield service stocks I analyzed, marketed and advised of would decline.  Yes, my dislike of Al Gore and Joe Lieberman factored into the equation as well.  And yes, living in New York, it mattered not who I voted for, as New York always votes Democrat.  That said, my d

Avoid The Pain
It’s a basic human instinct – attempting to avoid pain. And it’s the reason we are in so much trouble now, because when it comes to managing economies, the longer you put off necessary pain, the worse the result in the end. This is the primary distinction defining the difference between Keynesian and Austrian economics. The former, which is also known as ‘interventionist economics’, promotes ever-increasing and active central (state) policy responses (think fiscal and monetary) in the management

Two Countries You Might Be Surprised to Find Hallgarten's Chris Ecclestone Likes Now
How tight is money in the mining industry? So much so, according to Chris Ecclestone, mining strategist with Hallgarten & Co., that juniors are punished for resource estimates because the market believes they can't afford to develop their properties further. In this interview with The Gold Report, Ecclestone explains that canny juniors are choosing past-producing properties, which boast dependable resources estimated by majors and already existing infrastructure. And he names two current gold pr

The Passive Management Bubble
We have happened upon that time in the investment cycle when investors vastly eschew active management of their assets in favor of a more passive management style. In fact, I read recently 461 Hedge Funds, a hallmark of active investment management, shut their doors in the first half of this year alone. If liquidations continue at that rate, they'll outpace the 1,023-closure record from 2009. All signs now indicate that active management has fallen out of vogue. And why wouldn't it? In

Is Inflation Over Sold?
By Gary TanashianFirst, for all you right minded wording detectives out there, you are absolutely right? inflation is not rising prices and deflation is not dropping prices.  Also, deflation is not two measures of a heavily manipulated bond market (chart 1) dropping impulsively.  But for the sake of argument, let?s realize that Main Street does indeed call $4 regular at the pump ?inflation? and every several years when a scare crops up they call dropping stocks and house prices ?deflation?.Here

In an interview with Rick Wiles of Tru News, Peter Boehringer of the German Precious Metals Society, a leader of the campaign to induce the Bundesbank to repatriate Germany's gold reserves, describes the campaign and the central bank's longstanding reluctance to provide information about the metal. The interview begins at the 16-minute mark here:

Precious Metals Starting to Show Bullish Signs
We've believed that Gold would need to break $1100 before we thought a bottom could start to develop. While that could still be the case, we are starting to see building evidence that precious metals could be forming a bottom. In the past we've written about the importance of Gold's performance against other asset classes. Relative strength in Gold has preceded important bottoms in the Gold price during 2001, 2005 and 2008. That relative strength is starting to show. Below we plot Gold

Rob Chang Spins Yellowcake into Gold and Gold into Green
The long winter of falling uranium prices is about to give way to a Japanese spring. In an interview with The Mining Report, Cantor Fitzgerald's Rob Chang discusses the return of the small producers as an increasingly hungry market looks to eat up all of the available uranium. Plus, Chang likes gold and enlightens us on how gold miners are shaking profits out of slag. The Mining Report: After the governor of Japan's Kagoshima Prefecture approved the res

  A Guide to Buying a Safe for Your Silver and Gold 
Recently at a local social event, I met a locksmith, and we started talking shop on the topic of securing assets with locks and the what’s what in the safe world. Aftera brief but very interesting conversation, I felt inspired to do a little research about the wide world of safes. What I learned was both fun and fascinating.
