Five myths about the Gold Standard I : Ron Paul and Larry McDonald 
Americans are for the most part ignorant of the gold 'standard' envisioned by Ron Paul. Before the 'unenlightened ones' lend an ear to the quacks and frauds that'll twist and spin what Ron Paul proposes, best you read this 1981 congressional tract of his from 1981. A Gold Coin Exchange Standard is what he is suggesting.

  How To Hide Your Gold And Silver 
The following tips for where to store your gold are provided by goldsilver.com. Now that you are potentially making the decision to move into true money, the question arises of where to take delivery of and safeguard your precious metals.  Taking physical delivery of your gold or silver is often the most rewarding part of the purchasing experience, as it gives you, the bullion investor, a fuller understanding of the real value of tangible monetary assets.

  The ideal percentage allocation between gold silver 
There are three major types of Perth Mint Depository investor: Those that only buy gold Those that only buy silver Those that buy 50% gold and 50% silver There are others who include platinum, or have different percentages, but the above three types are a significant majority of our clients. I find it interesting that most investors who weren’t strong goldbugs or silverbugs and couldn’t decide between them went with a simple 50/50 strategy. This begs the question: is this a good strategy and w

  Does Gold Keep up in Hyperinflation  
Inflation is anatural consequence of loose government monetary policy. If those policies get too loose, hyperinflation can occur. As gold investors,we'd like to know if the precious metals would keep pace in this extreme scenario. Hyperinflation is an extremely rapid period of inflation, but when does inflation (which can be manageable) cross the line and become out-of-control hyperinflation? PhilipCagan, one of the very first researchers of this phenomenon, defines hyperinflation as "an inflation rate of 50% or more in a single month, "something largely inconceivable to the average investor.

Exclusive: China curbs gold imports as trade war heats up
Reuters/Peter Hobson and Yawen Chen/8-14-2019 “China has severely restricted imports of gold since May, bullion industry sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters, in a move that could be aimed at curbing outflows of dollars and bolstering its yuan currency as economic growth slows.” USAGOLD note:  Reuters goes on to say that China has cut incoming shipments by 300 to 500 tonnes.  This could lead to higher yuan-based prices within China for the gold already on hand.  How that will

  What Did J.P. Morgan Mean 
The following exchange occurred on December 18, 1912 when J.P. Morgan – the most influential American financier and banker of his time – was called to testify before Congress. Mr Untermyer: I want to ask you a few questions bearing on the subject that you have touched upon this morning, as to the control of money. The control of credit involves a control of money, does it not? Mr Morgan: A control of credit? No. Mr Untermyer: But the basis of banking is credit,

Basic Gold Market Facts 
Here are ten basic gold-market realities that are either unknown or ignored by many gold 'experts'.1. Supply always equals demand, with the price changing to maintain the equivalence. In this respect the gold market is no different from any other market that clears, but it's incredible how often comments like "demand is increasing relative to supply" appear in gold-related articles.2. The supply of gold is the total aboveground gold inventory, which is currently somewhere in the 150K-200K tonne

Understanding Open Interest
Techniques for analysing and trading equities, looking at price and volume, can be applied to precious metal futures markets. Futures, however, introduce another data point – open interest – that has to be considered. With equities, the quantity of shares on issue is generally fixed and rarely changes. Therefore all buying is done from sellers who hold the shares. With futures, the amount of contracts “on issue” or “open” changes daily, as a future is a contract to trade metal in the future and

Looking for something different to read during my midday break today, I visited The Perth Mint’s library and came across “Messrs.Mocatta andGoldsmid’s Circular on the Movements of Gold and Silver during 1913”, an Appendix to the British Royal Mint’s 1913 Annual Report. Silver investors will find this circular of 100 years ago of interest as Messrs.

Craig Hemke at Sprott Money: Gold's next target
Writing at Sprott Money, Craig Hemke of the TF Metals Report says today that despite gold's solid rise in recent weeks, bullion banks remain in charge of the gold futures market and will aim to knock the price down when hedge funds and speculators get too long there. The zone between $1,485 and %1,525 looks most important to Hemke. If gold can pass that, Hemke writes, its all-time high will be in sight again. Hemke's analysis is headlined "Gold's Next Target" and it's posted at Sprott Money here

Australia's 'As Good As Gold' brothers interview GATA chairman
Darryl and Brian Panes of As Good As Gold Australia interviewed GATA Chairman Bill Murphy the other day, discussing the prospects for the monetary metals as the longstanding price suppression by central banks and their agents is showing signs of stress. The Paneses note that gold is already at a record high in Australian dollars, and Murphy thinks that the monetary metal will reach a record high in U.S. dollars before too long. But whether retail investors in the United States will realize any

China scoops up more gold for reserves during trade war
There's a powerful constant amid the to-and-fro of the U.S.-China trade war as currency policy gets dragged into the standoff between the world's two top economies: Beijing wants more gold in its reserves. China's central bank expanded gold reserves again in July, pressing on with a run that stretches back to December. The People's Bank of China raised holdings to 62.26 million ounces from 61.94 million a month earlier, according to data on its website. In tonnage terms, the inflow was close to

Central banks change their policy on gold but not their madness
Over a weekend in April six years ago, without any corresponding news, the gold price was smashed out of the blue for nearly $200. For months before the smash analysts often said that China had put a floor under the gold price, buying whatever it could to hedge its U.S. dollar exposure without pushing gold's price up too much. That analysis made sense, since, with its estimated $3 trillion in foreign-exchange reserves, mostly in U.S. dollar instruments, China was in a position to control any ma
