Gold at short term decision point and FOMC commentary
While there’s a lot going on, let’s put it aside and just focus on the FOMC results in less than an hour. Deutsche Bank: "If The Fed Stick To Their Script Then The Market Could Be In For A Small Shock" Submitted by Tyler Durden on 01/28/2015 If the Fed stick to their script then the market could be in for a small shock. Market-based measures of the first Fed hike place it at around the October meeting. This is already one meeting later than was being priced in at the start of the year. After t

Greece is the Canary In the Coal Mine for the $100 TRILLION Bond Bubble
Will Greece Burst the Bond Bubble? For over 30 years, sovereign nations, particularly in the West have been buying votes by offering social payments in the form of welfare, Medicare, social security, and the like. When actual bills came due to fund this stuff, Governments quickly discovered that current tax revenues couldn’t cover it (see the image below)… so they issued sovereign debt to make up the difference. And so the global bond bubble was created. As far back as 2009, most Western nat

Why QE in Europe Will Fail
The fear of deflation has become the cornerstone of Keynesian economic thought. A lack of inflation has been used to explain periods of economic weakness from the Great Depression of the 1930's, to the Great Recession 2008-2009. And now, that philosophy has been adopted as gospel by those that control the Federal Reserve and virtually every central bank on the planet. In reality deflation is cathartic, and a necessary condition to heal the economy. If deflation were allowed to naturall

Gold spike in major currencies a remarkable start to 2015
The new year has ushered in a remarkable and unexpected turn of events for gold. It is up significantly in four of the seven top currencies (the euro, British pound, Australian and Canadian dollars), up respectably in two others (U.S. dollar and Japanese yen) and down slightly in the last (Swiss franc).

"World Running Out of Positive-Yield Bonds"
In the wake of ECB's €60 billion a month QE madness (see "QE already Working" Says IMF Lagarde; Ho-Hum Details Announced; Gold the Place to Be), one might be wondering what it may do to European bond yields. German 10-Year Bond Yield click on chart for sharper image Since September of 2013, yield on the German 10-year bond has plunged from around 2% to 0.367%.

Russia and China ‘Furiously’ Buying Up Gold As “a Global Currency Crisis – Albeit Unstated – is Underway”
A larger global currency shift is underway… And it may be happening much more quickly than anyone has realized. Things are definitely in motion. Call it a game of musical chairs, or an exercise in rearranging chairs on the Titanic, or just that a tilting balance of power. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking this is all routine. As Michael Snyder just reported: The absolutely stunning decision by the Swiss National Bank to decouple from the euro has triggered billions of dollars worth of loss

The Beginning of the End of the $100 TRILLION Bond Bubble
The big story in the world is the bond bubble. For over 30 years, sovereign nations, particularly in the West have been buying votes by offering social payments in the form of welfare, Medicare, social security, and the like. The ridiculousness of this should not be lost on anyone. Politicians, in order to be elected, promise to allocate taxpayer funds on social programs that will benefit said taxpayers down the road (we’re simply talking about social spending, not infrastructure or other cost

Where Would Interest Rates Be If The Fed Didn't Exist?
On January 7th CNBC's Rick Santelli and Steve Leisman engaged in a heated debate that posed an interesting question; is the free market at work keeping interest rates low, or is it the central banks' put? This made me consider the real question to ask which is: Where would rates be if central banks didn't exist? What would happen if the Fed liquidated its balance sheet and sold its $4.5 trillion worth of Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasuries and closed up shop? Some claim, after

  Market Chaos as Swiss Franc Surges 30% In 13 Minutes, Gold Rises Sharply
Chaos was seen in financial markets today as participants were thrown a curveball when Switzerland surprised the world by removing its three-year cap on the Swiss franc, unpegging it from the euro. This sent the undervalued currency soaring and Europe’s shares and bond yields tumbling.In just 13 minutes, from 0930 to 0952 BST, the franc collapsed by 30%. Swiss shares fell more than 12% – their largest crash since 1987. Stock markets around Europe fell with investors buying “safe haven” assets su

I wasn’t planning to write this morning (Friday); and in fact, will have completed this article before the December NFP payroll report is released. Regarding said report, my advice is the same as always regarding the “island of lies” reporting of the nation’s most politically-sensitive statistic. Which is, to ignore the fraudulent headline numbers – even if “worse than expected” – and look into the internals; which unquestionably, will reveal a true unemployment situation, at best, on a par with

It’s incredible to believe, but next month marks ten years since I left my last “desk job” – as an equity oilfield service, equipment, and drilling analyst at Salomon Smith Barney in New York. Nearly every day since, I’ve started my day at the gym, on the Stairclimbing machine for one to two hours. Typically, my workouts start at 4:30 – 5:00 AM MST, or just as New York’s algorithms start manipulating markets – and unwaveringly, any gym I patronize has a TV screen showing CNBC.

Will Cheap Oil Bail Out the Consumer?
Analysts on every financial news network are screaming about how the lower oil and gas prices will spur on the U.S. consumer and lead to a stronger economy. It is true that total retail sales rose 0.7 percent in November, beating analysts' expectations of 0.4 percent. And the Thomson-Reuters University of Michigan survey of consumers saw its December 2014 "preliminary index of consumer sentiment" soaring to 93.8--well above last month's 88.8 reading. Yet, despite this, global markets

Round Two of Greek Presidential Election Fails; One More Chance or National Elections
Rounds one and two of Greek presidential elections ended in failure. Recall that it takes a super-majority of 60% of parliament (200 votes), to elect a president, in the first two attempts. The third an final chance takes 180 votes. Even though this is a ceremonial position, should parliament fail to elect a president in three rounds, parliament dissolves and new national elections for prime minister and parliament take place. That has the nannycrats in Europe concerned. Alexis Tsipras, leader
