  Survey Results: Readers’ Thoughts on Whether to Hold, Fold, or Be Bold
Below is a representative sample of the responses to the question: "Should we Hold, Fold, or Be Bold with Gold?" We'll start with Fold, as it's the smallest group, then Bold because it's the most fun, and close with Hold, because that's the largest group, and we wouldn't want anyone to feel guilty if they don’t get to the bottom.

  If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe… 
I don’t know where to start this Monday morning as potentially devastating geopolitical and economic developments are emerging so rapidly, it is difficult to give them all justice.  However, as the Miles Franklin Blog’s principal aim is apprising you of everything you need for your due diligence process. Frankly, I haven’t got the strength to write of market manipulation today – thank goodness, Bill Holter did so already; as it has become so pervasive and perverse, that it’s the single most impo

Captain Hook - Treasure Chest
It’s no secret the rich are getting richer, and the poor poorer. Accounts of this worsening condition are stroon across mainstream media and alternative news sources alike, albeit with somewhat different storylines. Although increasingly recognizing the importance of this issue, mainstreamers, who both cater to and are controlled by the status quo, portray the condition as a result of race and education differences (which is true), and that these shortfalls should be addressed via public policy

Why This Equity Rally is About to End Badly
The deafening cacophony on Wall Street for the past six years has been since interest rates are at zero percent that there is no place else to put your money except stocks. For most, it just doesn't matter that the ratio of Total Market Cap to GDP is 125 percent, which is 15 percent points higher than in 2007 and the highest at any time outside of the tech bubble at the turn of the century. Sovereign bond yields are at record lows across the globe and the strategy for most investors

Important medium term cycles in gold coming in play in September
INTRA-DAY NEWSLETTER ~ Sept 9 2014 Gold Daily Report ~ Sept 9, 2014 Trend Long Term ~ Bearish- Need a monthly close above 1800 to confirm the bull market final phase underway.

Scotland Independence Risk Sees British Pound Dive
Scotland Independence Risk Sees British Pound Dive Mel Gibson in Braveheart Sterling fell sharply yesterday as traders became nervous of a possible vote for Scottish independence. The referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom takes place on Thursday 18th September.  While the referendum and the potential impact of an independent Scotland have been on the horizon for some time, the approaching vote in two weeks is causing upheaval for the British pound in currency markets, and

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.

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
