The Great Silver Mystery...REVEALED! 
Let me start off by saying that what I am going to postulate should not in any way be considered fact...because I am not in possession of proof. I am merely postulating on where all the mystery silver comes from to be sold on the physical silver market. Since the early 2000's almost every serious silver analyst has been pounding the table that there is no above ground silver available and it is the "buy of a lifetime".

Stock Market Volatility Attributed to 'Shenanigans'
Back in January, I discussed the likelihood that global equity markets were approaching simultaneous tipping points beyond which legions upon legions of GenX-ers and Millennials would be thrown to the wolves by failing to recognize the financial mania engulfing them. I alluded to it being "Time for the Beast to Exhale," and within a few days, my volatility trade (UVXY) exploded to the upside as the "beast," better known as the global stock market ascent, finally exhaled and fell 3,300 Dow Jones

ECB minutes highlight policymakers' fears over currency wars
FRANKFURT, Germany -- The extent of European officials' concerns over the weakness of the dollar was laid bare on Thursday in a set of European Central Bank accounts that highlighted fears that the U.S. administration was deliberately trying to engage in currency wars. The accounts of the ECB's January monetary policy vote also reveal that the governing council's hawks pushed for a change in the bank's communications, saying economic conditions were now strong enough to drop a commitment to boos

Raising Rates Reflect Bigger Debt Not Faster Growth
While investors are justifiably focused on what may be the opening crescendo of a long overdue sell-off in stocks, there is not, as of yet, as feverish a discussion of the parallel sell-offs in bonds and the U.S. dollar, which have been underway for at least a year and a half in bonds and 14 months for the dollar. I contend that this should be widely understood as the root causes of the jittery Dow, and are ultimately far more important. A continued decline in the dollar and bonds holds the pote

U.S. Treasury Steve Mnuchin Advocates Weak Dollar Policy
Last week U.S. treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin actually admitted what most precious metals holders have known for a long time. In particular, he actually stated that at least in the short-term, he feels a weaker dollar is good for the U.S. Apparently the days of at least pretending to adhere to a strong dollar policy are over. Of course those who have been watching the Federal Reserve and all of its credit creation over the past few years have been well aware. Yet to hear the treasury secretary

Gold Upleg Breaking Out
Gold’s strong upleg accelerated this week, powering to major new breakout highs.  Speculators rushed to buy gold futures following surprising weak-dollar comments from the US Treasury Secretary, which hit the US dollar hard.  That boosted gold to critical technical levels that should really intensify the shift back to bullish psychology.  This mounting gold breakout confirms gold’s bull market is very much alive and well. While this week’s surge put gold on many mo

Gold Price Hits Summer 2016 High vs. Mnuchin's 'Weak Dollar' But Silver -2.0 for 2018 in GBP
GOLD PRICES hit new 17-month highs against the Dollar above $1360 per ounce at the start of London dealing on Thursday, rising as the US currency extended its slump after President Donald Trump's Treasury Secretary said he welcomed a "weak Dollar". Gaining for the 12th time in 18 trading days so far in 2018, wholesale gold bullion prices set the highest London AM benchmark since the shock Brexit referendum result highs of August 201

Mnuchin comment surprises markets, turns dollar decline into 'one-way bet'
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's comment that a weak dollar is good for the country accelerated a decline in the currency and fed fears in a market already speculating that White House may make the dollar less attractive for the longer term. ... Mnuchin's comments echo statements by President Donald Trump, who famously helped turn a market trend of a stronger dollar last January when he said, prior to his inauguration, that the dollar was "too strong" and that U.S. companies can't compete bec

Commerce secretary says U.S. isn't abandoning 'strong dollar' policy
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross took issue today with media characterizations that the United States is departing from its historically strong dollar policy. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's remarks at a news conference at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland should not be interpreted as a call for a weaker U.S. currency, Ross told CNBC. Earlier today Mnuchin said, "Obviously, a weaker dollar is good for us as it relates to trade and opportunities," but he added that the short-term va

Gold And Silver: Something Different Is Occurring - Dave Kranzler
JP Morgan, at least according to the daily Comex warehouse report, added over half a million ozs of silver to its “historic” stash of silver at the Comex: TF Metals Report. It would be even more interesting to see an actual independent accounting of that specific metal which would track the serial numbers on the bars to the legal owner of title. I’ve been hedged in my mining stock portfolio since early September. The signal for me to hedge is the reliable Comex bank “net short” posi

The Daily Market Report: Gold Continues to Trend Higher, Near 1-Year Highs
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/09-07-17 Gold continues to trend higher, reaching 1349.51, its highest level in nearly a year. The peak from July of last year at 1375.15 defines the next major level of resistance. The yellow metal continues to be driven by a weak dollar and a host of political and geopolitical uncertainties. While the imminent concern about the debt ceiling has apparently been deferred for several months, make no mistake, this is nothing more than a very short kick of the can. In that discu

Morning Snapshot: Gold continues to consolidate recent gains
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-18-17 Gold continues to consolidate the recent push to 5-month highs. Similarly, silver is consolidating after hitting a 5-month high of 18.64 in overseas trading yesterday. The dollar remains defensive in the wake of President Trump comments last week and speculation that “strong dollar policy” is dead. Reuters reports that Goldman Sachs abandoned the two strong dollar plays in its 2017 trading recommendations on Tuesday, pointing to the Trump administration’s concerns ov

“Markets” In The Post-Trump Era
Yesterday, I wrote of “why the Cartel is so (rightfully) terrified”; i.e., because after six years of post- “point of no return” price suppression, including four since the April 2013 “alternative currencies destruction” raid pushed gold and silver prices below their respective 200 week moving averages, both metals are on the verge of breaching these key technical resistance levels (of $1,260/oz and $18.59/oz, respectively).  This, with above ground, available-for-sale supply at an all-time low;

The NEW U.S. Economic Mythology - Jeff Nielson
The Corporate media lies to us, all of the time. This is not an assertion, merely an elementary observation. With a real “free press”, we see occasional moments where different media outlets may agree on the interpretation of particular events and/or the relative importance of events. All other times, we see a divergence of opinion between media outlets. This is what we would expect to see. Homo sapiens are a contrarian species. We all have our own ideas – or at least we used to. What do we

2.5, Nuff Said-Revisited
In late 2013, amidst unrelenting hype of the second coming of the Fed’s balance sheet “exit strategy” – the first being in LOL, 2010; interest rates surged higher, causing the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury to briefly touch the key psychological level of 3.0%.  (PPT-supported) stocks, of course, surged; and equally predictably, (Cartel-suppressed) Precious Metal prices plunged.  This, despite the fact that said “exit strategy” premise was fallacious at best; and a flat out, Goebbels-esq

What is Trump's Dollar Policy
The United States Treasury Department has supported a strong dollar policy since its inception in 1789. Period. There were no qualifications or equivocations with that stance, especially since the ascendance of the dollar as the world's reserve currency. That's why it was so highly unusual when the newly confirmed Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, uttered this quote recently: "From time to time an excessively strong dollar could have a negative short-term effect on the economy."

How Not To Do Due Diligence
Why should one own Precious Metals, you ask?  Pure and simple, to protect wealth from the inevitability of financial crises; destructive governments; and based on hundreds, if not thousands, of instances throughout history – the destruction of fiat currencies that are continually re-introduced into naïve, compliant societies.  Naïve and compliant, until these Ponzi schemes inevitably crash – leaving 99% of the population destitute, and the 1% that protected themselves wealthier. The reasons to p

London Silver Trading Explodes as Team Trump Attacks Germany 'Strong Dollar'
SILVER TRADING in London's wholesale market saw the metal shoot to an 11-week high at $17.50 per ounce on Tuesday, outpacing gold bullion once again as world stock markets held flat amid headlines that new US president Donald Trump's chief trade negotiator blames Germany for "exploiting" the weak Euro to boost its exports, fuelling expectations that the celebrity real-estate tycoon will formally end the United States'  so-called "strong Dollar policy" of the last 25 years.

Post series: The myth of the strong dollar policy, Part Two
Myth: The strong dollar policy means that the U.S government will do everything in its power to make the U.S. currency as good as gold. Reality (as defined at Wikipedia):  “The strong dollar policy is the United States economic policy based on the assumption that a strong exchange rate of the United States dollar is in the interests of the United States and the whole world. It is said to be also driven by a desire to encourage foreign bondholders to buy more Treasury securities. The United State
