Thursday’s ECB Decision Could Destroy Europe, If Ukraine Doesn’t First
Finally, September is here!  Everything we’ve observed suggest something BIG is on the verge of happening; and frankly, I’m not sure if I’m more excited about the inevitability of the gold Cartel’s demise or terrified of what the ensuing world will look like.  This weekend, I saw a chart showing a record low percentage of 16% of Americans believing their children will be more successful than they were, compared to the record high of 56% in 2000.  But sadly, financial “success” is likely not goin

“Central Banks Should Give Money Directly To The People” – Gold Bullish CFR Proposal
“Central Banks Should Give Money Directly To The People” – Gold Bullish CFR Proposal Helicopter Janet? Last week, a very radical proposal appeared in the pages of the influential ‘Foreign Affairs’ magazine, the publication arm of the equally influential Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) think-tank based in New York. An article “Print Less but Transfer More - Why Central Banks Should Give Money Directly to the People”, that has been picked up widely in the media argues that given that monetary

Of Manipulation and Madness
It’s Wednesday morning and sovereign debt yields – U.S. Treasuries included – are again plumbing multi-year or in some cases all-time lows; as globally speaking, the “most damning proof yet of QE failure” couldn’t be more plain to see.  In other words, from East to West, fixed income markets are anticipating “QE to Infinity” amidst the worst economic backdrop – and outlook – of our lifetimes.  Part and parcel of such madness, everyone from money managers to corporate treasurers (as exemplified b

The interest trap… . . . and what it means to the gold market
"Interest rates on Treasury securities, which have been exceptionally low since the recession are projected to increase in the next few years as the economy strengthens and to end up at levels that are close to their historical averages (adjusted for inflation).” –Budget Outlook for 2014, Congressional Budget Office Had the Congressional Budget Office done the math, as outlined in the table above, it might not have appeared so nonchalant about the prospect of Treasury paying the historical average interest rate on the massive federal debt.

Markets: Keep calm and carry on
At the end of July global equity bull markets had a moment of doubt, falling three or four per cent. In the seven trading days up to 1st August the S&P500 fell 3.8%, and we are not out of the woods yet. At the same time the Russell 2000, an index of small-cap US companies fell an exceptional 9%, and more worryingly it looks like it has lost bullish momentum as shown in the chart below. This indicates a possible double-top formation in the making. Meanwhile yield-spreads on junk bonds widened si

Gold Market : An Analysis of Recent Geopolitical, Economic and Banking Events 
There are many events to be analysed for these last few weeks. As happens every year, this time of year is, once again, quite fertile. These events, whether geopolitical, economic, financial or historical (end of the London Gold & Silver Fixing), all exert influence, more or less on the long term, on the precious metals markets. Within a long-term investment perspective, it is best to analyse first the geo-strategic events, since they might give us a clue on the hard trends in regard to the in

Danger Warning: Banks Knowingly Underestimate their Risks
We shouldn’t worry about our economies anymore, the banks explain, the crisis is behind us and the solvability ratios have clearly gotten better. Banks like to tell us that the risks are under control and that their cash cushion is comfortable enough. The problem is that this risk reduction assessment does not come only from a more virtuous attitude, but also in part from dissimulation. As a matter of fact, “according to certain analysts, banks have revised their risk models in order to reduce

Fed's NIRP and Its Implications for Gold Investors
Based on the July gold Market Overview report. Believe it or not, we are finally witnessing a true monetary revolution. Unfortunately it is not the one that gold bugs have long waited for. Quite the opposite. We have the so called “monetary cranks” governing one of the most important central banks in the world. People who set the interest rates not at very low, not even at zero, not even at negative real interest rates, but at negative nominal interest rates. Hold your horses and constrain your

Debt Explosion!
Long-time readers know I love to include literary references to demonstrate key points; and none more so than the “aha moment” in my favorite movie of all time, V for Vendetta.  That is when Inspector Finch, who can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong with England realizes how the spreading social cancer started, where it currently stood and where it was headed. Not that what ails America – and the entire world – is news to Miles Franklin Blog readers, as we have been writing of the inevitab

End of the Ugliest Era
It’s extremely rare to be born into a period of major historical significance; and rarer still, to escape it without one’s life turned upside down.  This is exactly the scenario confronting us all; and already, the tragic ramifications of a four-decade mad experiment in global money printing are spreading like the Ebola virus.  The inevitable catastrophic end of the “dollar standard era” will entail massive global shifts in purchasing power, military might and civil liberties; and sadly, those n

Fed's 'Noisy' Inflation Fantasy
The Fed wants investors to be as unconcerned as the central bank is about inflation. Even though year over year consumer price inflation is above its target, the Fed chose in its latest press conference to claim the 2.1 percent YOY increase in prices paid merely represented "noisy" readings in the inflation gauge. However, the truth is that rising prices are a direct result of years' worth of zero percent interest rates and $3.5 trillion in money printing provided courtesy of both Ba

There was intraday commentary about the metals rally here.  There is also a Summer assignment for those of you who wish to have a framework for the unfolding tragedy that is the Anglo-American financial system.  I suggest you scroll down for it. I had taken my trading account down to effectively zero cash on this last move lower in the metals, especially in the last two weeks.  That was how sure I was that these market were grossly oversold.

When Trust and Confidence Is Lost, The Die Is Cast 
"After nearly 6 years of blocking the normal development of systemic transition, a blocking caused by a flood of dollars leading to a renewed artificial global addiction to the US dollar, history is now taking its course. It isn’t as if during these six years nothing has happened. On the one hand, the US has failed to relaunch its economy and the actual situation for Americans has only got worse, and on the other, the emerging nations have used – and contributed to creating – this 'pause' to
