Gold Bullion Fails to Recover $1300 Even as Dollar Retreats Post-Fed, Kim + Trump Trade Insults
GOLD BULLION rallied almost $10 per ounce on Friday from yesterday's 4-week lows against the Dollar, but failed to recover what analysts called the "key pivot" of $1300 despite claims of safe-haven buying after Pyongyang threatened to test a nuclear bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The Yen rose faster versus the Dollar, erasing last week's 0.7% gain in gold for Japanese investors, as Kim Jong-un – leader of the regime in neighboring Nor

The forthcoming global crisis
The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greates

Germany Finishes Gold Repatriation
At the end of August, Germany completed its gold transfer process. What does it mean for the gold market? On August 23, 2017, the Bundesbank informed that it had finished the planned repatriation of gold earlier than originally assumed. The German central bank transferred approximately 300 tons of gold from the New York Fed and about 374 tons of the yellow metal from Paris in the years 2013-2016. In that way, the Bundesbank managed to realize its gold storage plan three years ahead of schedule.

Blowing Off The Roof
Of all the absurd Washington pantomimes none has been as reliably entertaining and maddening as the annual debates to raise the debt ceiling. Although the outcome was always a foregone conclusion (the ceiling would be raised), the excitement came when fiscal conservatives bemoaned the perils of runaway debt and “attempted” to exact spending restrictions through threats “to shut down the government,” (which often led to news coverage of tourists being turned away from national parks.) On the othe

The Death of Abenomics; the Rise of Interest Rates
Job approval numbers for Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are in freefall. Abe's support has now fallen below 30%, and his Liberal Democratic Party recently suffered heavy losses stemming from a slew of scandals revolving around illegal subsidies received by a close associate of his wife. But as we have seen back on this side of the hemisphere, the public’s interest in these political scandals can be easily overlooked if the underlying economic conditions are favorable. For instance, voters wer

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

Precious Metals Are “Best Defence” Against Bail-ins In Economic Crisis
Precious metals are “real assets” and “best defence” against bail-ins and cashless society in the economic crisis which is “on its way” The risks posed to investors and savers from the coming economic crisis and the threat of , negative interest rates, ‘helicopter money,’ capital controls and the “cashless society” has been looked at in an excellent and timely article by economist John Adams, writing in the Daily Telegraph. While the article is focused on how these risks threaten Australia and

Italy Openly Discusses Euro Exit in Parliament: Debt Restructuring or “Italeave” on the Way?
In Europe, where it is essentially taboo to publicly discuss anything deemed politically incorrect, some interesting conversations are taking place in the Italian parliament regarding the future of Italy in the eurozone. Via email, Eurointelligence asks Is Italy heading for debt restructuring or euro exit? We are reporting from an important conference in Rome yesterday that has caught the Italian news headlines this morning – on the future of Italian public debt. It was organized by the Five St

Gold’s future confiscation is a growing reality, as currency confidence slides! - Part 2
This article is from previous articles featured in the Gold Forecasterweekly issues. [Subscribe:www.GoldForecaster.com]The subject of gold’s confiscation has come onto our screens again, but this time, being described as a “Myth” in the future. This thought comes from Canada, a favorite place for U.S. citizens to store their gold in the hopes that it will be outside the reach of the U.S. Federal Reserve. We respond to the article that described it as a myth, because we are firmly of the opinion

Precious Metals-Dirt Cheap Insurance, In An Increasingly, Explosively PIMBEEB World
With each passing day, I don’t just think, but know the world cannot, and will not, survive the collapse of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme without “thousand-year-flood”-like changes in the global political, economic, social, monetary; and likely, military landscape. These changes have unquestionably begun in “second” and “third world” nations with undversified economies, unstable political regimes; and of course, fiat currencies that can’t be abused – like the dollar, Euro

Moody’s Downgrade of China Rating and Gold
On Wednesday, Moody’s downgraded China’s rating from Aa3 to A1. What does it mean for the gold market? Moody’s Investors Service cut its credit rating on China’s sovereign debt by a notch. The agency also changed its outlook for China from negative to stable. It is the first time Moody’s has downgraded the country since 1989. The reason was worries about China’s growing debt. The agency explained: “The downgrade reflects Moody's expectation that China's financial strength will erode somewhat ove

Ticking, (Short-Fuse) Time Bombs For The “Challenging” Central Banking Industry
In yesterday’s “who’s more bullish for Precious Metals – Macron or Le Pen?,” I started with nearly five pages of cold, hard facts – proving across-the-board market manipulation of essentially all Western markets.  Which, for the sole purpose of prolonging a terminally ill monetary status quo – in which 1% benefit, at the expense of not just the “99%,” but future generations of “99-percenters” – has created “dotcom-like valuations in a Great Depression Era.”  Not to mention, sentiment – per yeste

Today’s sell-off
The FOMC meets Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  Today’s downside, in my view, is the standard sell-off that generally accompanies Fed meetings these days – irrespective of the expected meeting results.  From what I’ve read, this particular meeting will focus on the manner and method of reducing the Fed’s balance sheet and skirt the interest rate issue, though one never knows. On the balance sheet issues, I’m still lingering on first base asking the basic question:  Why does the Fed need to redu

Why the Big Banks Are Terrified of Le Pen Winning in France (but not BREXIT or Trump)
France holds the first round of its Presidential election this weekend. The big worry for the markets is the fact that anti-Euro candidate Marin Le Pen could potentially win. Now, the polls show Le Pen as having NO chance of becoming Prime Minister.  Of course, the polls also showed that BREXIT would not happen and Hillary Clinton had a 98% of becoming President. We all know how those turned out. “So what?” one might ask, “why would a Le Pen victory matter? Both BREXIT and Trump’s Presidential e

Confusion Reigns. . .
A few days ago, I postulated that despite the seasonal weakness most were anticipating in May and despite the sharp increase in Commercial shorting that was still below 2016 levels, the precious metals would buck conventional wisdom and advance further into even greater degrees of overbought status. On Tuesday morning, after watching 22,000 contracts in June Gold completely wipe out every bid down to $1,280.60, causing a sympathetic crash in silver down to $18.06, I was not only ready to break

The decline and fall of the EU
This article identifies the headwinds faced by the EU in the wake of Brexit.Without the UK, not only does the EU lose much of its importance on the world stage, but the Commission’s budget is left with an enormous hole. That is the decline. The fall is well under way, with capital flight significantly worse than generally realised, as a proper understanding of TARGET2 imbalances shows. Not only is the ECB running out of options, but without major support from Germany, France and Italy, Brussels

Catalyst for Chaos
Up until very recently, stocks had been humming along without so much as a minor speedbump and volatility was becoming a distant memory. However, it now seems prudent to once again remind investors that this extremely overvalued market is headed for an epic crash. The Cassandras, myself included, have been wrong about this warning for what seems like a long time. Nevertheless, much like those who warned of a housing bubble a few years before the bottom completely fell out, reality is

Eurogroup Finance President Accuses Southern Europe of “Spending Money on Booze and Women then Begging for Help”
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, Dutch finance minister and president of the Eurogroup finance ministers, is in hot water today over derogatory statements regarding peripheral Europe. This compounds Dijsselbloem’s already significant problems as his party was trounced in the recent Dutch elections. Spain and Portugal now seek his ouster in addition to an apology. Please consider Protests Mount Over EU Dealmaker’s ‘Booze and Women’ Slur. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, a key euro area dealmaker, is facing calls to re
