Prepared for the Attack of the Short Sellers: Joe Reagor
The Gold Report: Let's talk about the growth and stability of gold and silver sales in Q2/14. What catalysts are on the horizon? Joe Reagor: The biggest national markets for gold right now are India and China. U.S. investors are bearish on gold and silver. Europeans are more toward neutral. But there are more than 2 billion people living in China and India. They are the largest gold buying market, outweighing the larger financial markets of the U.S. and Europe.

Bubbles and “Anti-Bubbles”
My “prior life” ended nine years ago, when I left Salomon Smith Barney after devoting every ounce of my being to financial markets for 16 years.  My insatiable desire for Wall Street success started with my first internship – at Paine Webber – at age 18; and the passion, dedication, and love I had for oil and gas – which I analyzed every day from 1996 through 2005 – was no less than what I put into gold and silver today.  Back then, I was a bit more idealistic, at least, until April 2000, when I

Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Miners Outperform Once Again
Gold & Silver Trading Alert originally sent to subscribers on April 23, 2014, 7:28 AM. Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions are justified from the risk/reward perspective. Yesterday’s price action in the precious metals market might seem perplexing to some investors and there’s good reason for it. Gold declined, but silver didn’t, and mining stocks actually managed to rally more than 1%. Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of What we wrote yest

Will Ukraine and Russia Catalyze a War? 
Amid accusations and acrimonious verbal jousting between the United States and Russia, it appears that the Russian commitment to peace with the Ukraine is either not their intention, or not entirely within their control. Either way, the Ukraine has now resumed operations to neutralize the Russian-sponsored terrorists who have killed and tortured two Ukrainians, including a local politician, in cold blood. It’s remarkable how quickly the situation has evolved from comfortable if uneasy coexisten

Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Action in Platinum
Gold & Silver Trading Alert originally sent to subscribers on April 22, 2014, 7:06 AM. Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (full) in gold, silver, and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective. The precious metals sector moved lower at the beginning of the week which coincided with a small move higher in the USD Index. There were no meaningful breakdowns / breakouts, though – with the exception of the platinum market. Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy

Frogs Aboil
Yesterday, I noted Zero Hedge’s headline at the start of a quiet, post-Easter session in which European markets were closed; i.e., “Sleepy Holiday Market prepares for scripted, daily low-volume levitation.”  Today, on yet another quiet news morning, Zero Hedge writes “Traders walk in on another Sleepy Session in Search of its Volume-less Levitation Catalyst,” and “S&P Rallies to First 5-Day Streak in 6 Months on No Volume.”  Such is the “financial zeitgeist” created by five years of market manip

Silver and Gold Guarantee Freedom 
Silver and gold are not merely valuable commodities, investments, and media of exchange. More importantly, they are key "checks and balances" in America's legal and political institutions. The fight against the use of silver and gold as money that has been waged by bankers and rogue politicians since the 1870s as to silver and the 1930s as to gold -- and will intensify as fiat currencies collapse throughout the world -- is ultimately directed against America's national independence, her constitutional government, and every common American's individual liberty and prosperity.

Fundamentals Always Win! 
This weekend, a long-time reader – and silver holder – wrote the following… If silver is so precious, and the ‘artificial’ price so low, than how come it’s not out of circulation yet?  How come silver is available when you want it?  I call it BS.  If I’m wrong, and I may be wrong, please explain why. This reader has been a big fan, so it’s disheartening to hear this as he, as well as anyone, knows the Miles Franklin Blog’s popularity emanates from its adherence to truth.  And in the case of PM p

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Lies, Damn Lies, and an Option Expiration
“A true opium of the people is a belief in nothingness after death - the huge solace of thinking that for our betrayals, greed, cowardice, and murders that we are not going to be judged.” Czesław Miłosz The action for the precious metals did not bode well, when late last night as gold drifted higher and crept over 1300 it was smacked down by some heavy dumping of contracts in quiet trade in the Globex market. And we saw that classic back and forth sea saw today around the level targeted by

Willem Middelkoop and Terence van der Hout: Turnaround Stories Revolve Around Proven Management
The Gold Report: Willem, your first book predicted the collapse of the global financial system a year before the 2008 fall of Lehman Bros. In your new book "The Big Reset: War on Gold and the Financial Endgame," you're predicting the demise of the dollar as the reserve currency by 2020. You said it can occur as a carefully planned event or as the result of a crisis. What would these two scenarios look like? Willem Middelkoop: Authorities always prefer to act within a well-planned scenario. The

Barrick and Newmont reported to remain eager for merger
By Euan Rocha Reuters Monday, April 21, 2014 TORONTO -- Talks between Barrick Gold Corp and Newmont Mining Corp about a potential merger have hit a snag, but sources close to the situation say the companies remain keen to reach a deal and discussions are likely to resume. The talks had been on for a few weeks, and the two sides had broadly agreed to a transaction under which Toronto-based Barrick would acquire Denver-based Newmont in an all-stock deal, said one source close to the matter. The so

Gold Market Update 
In the context of the magnitude of the rally from the December lows that preceded it, gold’s reaction from its March highs, see 1-year chart below, seems like a reasonable correction, although there have been some factors indicating that this is not a normal healthy reaction, such as the high downside volume, particularly in stocks.

Loose Talk On China Demand Sinks Gold
Precious metals started the week strong on heightened tensions in Ukraine, but the combination of misleading reports on China gold demand from the mainstream financial media and renewed interest in U.S. stocks by Western investors were enough to send prices sharply lower. Early in the week, the gold price rose to a one-month high at $1,330 an ounce and silver held the $20 mark, but both metals ended substantially lower. The trade-weighted dollar rose and the Labor Department’s March inflation re

Mike Kosares: Anti-gold scare tactics aren't very effective lately
The anti-gold propaganda of mainstream financial news organizations is getting tedious, Mike Kosares of Centennial Precious Metals in Denver writes today, the more so because a little research into the price predictions of gold's disparagers finds that they are usually wrong. Kosares' commentary is headlined "Press' Anti-Gold Scare Tactics Largely Ineffective" and it's posted at Centennial's Internet site,, here:

Gold Can?t Glitter
By Warren BevanVolatility reigned supreme again this past week as many stocks look to have put lows in now just as earnings season is really heating up.Lots of big companies are reporting in the weeks ahead and could move this market and stocks higher if earnings are good.At least I hope that’s what happens.We’re still mostly in a cash position with a few trades here and there but we should be able to pick up quite a few stocks this coming week with so many lows now in.As for the precious metals

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Counting Blessings and Tender Mercies
The markets were quiet today, for a stock option expiration ahead of a three day weekend. Next Thursday there will be an option expiration on the Comex for precious metals on Thursday the 24th. I would expect it to be relatively quite since May is not a major contract month. There were more deliveries on the April contract declared, but almost no activity in the Comex warehouses. Every person must have a purpose that takes them outside of themselves.  And so I thank God for the opportunity

Merger talks between gold giants Barrick and Newmont break down
By Gillian Tan, Alistair MacDonald, and Dana Mattioli The Wall Street Journal Friday, April 18, 2014 Barrick Gold Corp. and Newmont Mining Corp. recently held abortive talks over a deal that would have combined the world's two largest gold producers at a time when they are battling a sharp drop in the price of gold, according to people familiar with the matter. The two companies had intended to announce a deal as early as Tuesday, one of the people said. They have discussed combining a number of

Investors Ignore Frightful Geopolitics 
When the former Soviet Union collapsed almost 25 years ago, most global strategic forecasters assumed that the U.S. would adapt pragmatically to her new status of sole world superpower. Instead she has pursued a variety of misguided nation-building adventures and has largely shrunk from her primary responsibility of neutralizing the ambitions of petty dictators around the world. From this perspective, America's multi-generational expenditures on military personnel and equipment has become more o
